SURVEY QUESTIONS

1.  Gender: Female
2.  Age: 31 (as of Feb 15, 2002)
3.  Country, City, StateIllinois, USA.  Personally: La Rochelle, France.
4.  Are you more of a Rocky Collector including Shock Treatment, or more of a Shock Treatment Collector?  Former.
5.  What Shock Treatment items are you most proud of owning? The 16mm trailer.
6.  What Shock Treatment items do you have duplicates of? I've got more than one Richard mask, but it's reserved as a prize in a future Crazed Imaginations contest (thanks, Sal!)
7.  What Shock Treatment items are you missing that you desperately are trying to get a hold of?  More costume photos.
8.  How long have you been collecting Shock Treatment items? Since the early '90s.
9.  What are your other hobbies or interests?  Rocky fanzine Crazed Imaginations consumes most of my free time.  Non-Rocky interests are ancient Egypt; history; good chocolate; vegetarian  cooking;  feminism; French and foreign languages (I am currently learning Chinese); spending way too much time on-line (though much of that is Rocky-related).
10.  Tell us a little about yourself.  http://www.rockyhorrorcostumelist.info/costumes/bio.html says most of what needs to be said.  I love my husband Wally very much and am currently living my dream of working in France.
11.  What links Shock or Rocky related do you like most? I'm partial to the Interactive Theater List (http://www.towson.edu/~lwood/theater.html ).  I run a fanzine and enjoy Rocky Horror audio, so I use Shawn McHorse's http://www.rockymusic.org and http://www.queerios.org (lots of good photos) a lot.  The Shock Treatment Network is probably my favorite Shocky site; there aren't very many, which I feel is a real shame.
12.  Do you have a website of your own? If so, what is the URL address (link)?  http://www.rockyhorrorcostumelist.info (many thanks to Cosmo for the domain name)  I also run Crazed Imaginations On-Line (http://www.crazedimaginations.com; thanks to Cosmo for the domain name again) and maintain the RHPS FAQ (http://www.rockyhorror.org/faq), though I don't own it.
13.  Who's your favorite Shock Treatment character?  I suppose it's Nation.  She's fundamentally unpleasant and devious.  The finest fan performances I've seen, however, have been Emily Weiss, Janet Majors, and Brad Majors.  I have seen one very good fan performance of Nation, but the fan actress was perhaps a little too charming.
14.  What's your favorite Shock Treatment song?  "Shock Treatment"
15.  Which movie do you like better, Shock Treatment or Rocky Horror?  Rocky Horror.
