I’m sure all of you have seen Alexandra Brodsky before. Tall, svelte, blond, and usually gesticulating wildly and/or spitting slam poetry. Alexandra is a junior in Davenport. She is involved in Dwight Hall and WORD, and is also the Director of Service for YHHAP, a staff writer for Broad Recognition, and a co-founder of the Moth at Yale. Makes you feel like an underachiever right? No worries. Alexandra is super chill. She was even my date for a black tie ball. It didn’t work out due to irreconcilable differences. But, you might still have a shot. We asked Alexandra to describe herself in the language of blog. Would you put the Alexandra Brodsky blog on your blogroll?
BB: Describe yourself in six words or less
AB: Easily excited, trying to be helpful.
BB: If you were a blog (real or fictitious) which would you be?
AB: I’d like to say I’d be the love child (blogs reproduce in threes, you should take bio anthro) of Double X, Paper Cuts, and The New Haven Independent, but I think the Indy would be too offended at being called a blog to be down for that. There’s an unfortunate amount of Bad Questions for Yahoo Answers in me as well.
BB: What does this blog look for in another blog? What would its ideal blog-spouse be?
AN: This blog looks for wit, passion, and a bundle of quirks in the handling of serious matters. How to Write Badly Well would be a contender, as would Wronging Rights and Bill Easterly’s Aid Watch. Sometimes, though, you just want to come home to a dependable intellectual like The Daily Dish or TNR Book Review. But if things spoil between the Bullblog and IvyGate, maybe we could have a little thing on the side.
BB: What blog-children would it have?
AB: Rosa DeLauro is a Fucking Hipster would be the loud, gregarious child, with Design New Haven always tagging along. Marginal Revolution might be a bit of a late bloomer, but she’d be loved nonetheless.
BB: Would the blog-sex be good?
