Okay, so we know this is called gURL talk, and Ethan Fixell, well… he isn’t a gURL. But we thought you gURLs should meet the new dude on the block who’s been doling out that super helpful advice in our Ask A Guy section for the past couple of weeks. It’s only fair, since he’s getting to know so much about you, anyway…
Oh, and after you read his interview? Send him some questions to answer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
gURL: What’s your worst date story?
Ethan: Oh man, it’s like a 40-way tie. As a former serial double dater, I’ve been on more disturbing dates than most. There was the girl who stole a watch from my apartment; the ex-meth addict who tried to move in with me on the first date; or the time my “best friend” stole my date and had a three-way make-out session in front of me. All were equally scarring.
gURL: If you could only have one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Ethan: Raw clams. (Is that weird? …It’s a little weird.)
gURL: Whose phone number do you wish you had?
Ethan: Prince’s. But not even because I’m such a huge Prince fan — only because he’s like, impossible to get a hold of. I’d earn so many cool points.
gURL: What’s something that you’ve always wanted that you’ve never gotten?
Ethan: Wrestlemania on Pay-Per-View. My parents refused to order it for my 9th birthday and now I’ll never see Randy Savage do his top rope elbow drop on live TV. I miss you, Macho Man.
gURL: What’s your secret nickname?
Ethan: “The Python.” But I guess it’s no secret anymore – watch out ladies, The Python is loose! (Was that creepy? …Definitely creepy.)
gURL: What’s the guiltiest pleasure on your iPod?
Ethan: It’s not easy for a guy to admit this, but the soundtrack to RENT. …And now there are five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred people questioning my sexuality.
gURL: Best advice you ever got?
Ethan: Be yourself. (Hey, if you love RENT, then LOVE RENT.)
gURL: Favorite bargain purchase?
Ethan: The drum set I bought from my friend in college. For $300 I got to bang around like Animal from The Muppets for four years.
gURL: Instant pick me-up?
Ethan: Any episode of The Office, Parks and Recreation, Curb Your Enthusiasm…or Parenthood. (Thanks, gURL, for this humiliating interview.)
gURL: Describe the high school you in three words.
Ethan: Super cool dork.
