My former editor interviewed me — read it

Betsy Rothstein, a tireless media gossip blogger notorious in Washington for her slash-and-burn writing, is a former editor of mine, which is why I should know better than to cooperate with her on anything.

But I went ahead and filled out a questionnaire she sometimes bothers people with at The Mirror, a blog for the Daily Caller:

Who is your celebrity crush? Rihanna. I’d say Erick Erickson, but I’ve never been much of a chubby chaser.

Least favorite word: African-American. It’s only used by emotionally sensitive journalists who get nervous when they see a black person.

A thought that makes you want to cry: Michelle Fields getting another reporting job.

Weirdest habit you’ve observed in a newsroom (workplace) setting? I once saw someone use the kitchen microwave to dry his socks on a rainy day. I’m hoping that didn’t become a habit.

Time you spend on Twitter each day (be honest): It’s up all day. I just wish Charles Blow would unblock me!

If you had to kiss a politician who would it be? Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. I’m betting on her turning into a prince.

Katie Couric or Diane Sawyer? Barbara Walters.

Pick one – flabby thighs, cankles or love handles? Leave Ted Cruz out of this.

A thought that brings you great joy: Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.

A regret (of any kind): Hitting the snooze button.

Any brushes with death? If so, please describe. I did read a Dana Milbank column once.

And thanks to Betsy, who taught me a lot during our high-crime days at FishbowlDC.
