Hi Everyone! Cassandra Blackstone here. Chandler and I are up early this morning with some coffee, answering some reader questions from Liza Snow’s newsletter. I’m going to try to get to as many as I possibly can before Chandler distracts me too much—
(She gets easily distracted.... - Chandler)
OK, mister control freak. I'm typing the questions here...not you. Let’s get to some! I’m itching to get started.
Chandler: Okay, before we start…can I just say—Cassandra, I love you beyond measure but you’re going to let me answer some of these questions, alright?
Cassandra: *playful scoff* It’s rude for you to assume I’d just answer your questions for you.
Chandler: Twenty bucks says you do it by the second question…
*Annoyed Cassandra huff*
Chandler: OK. Number one. Let’s see. This one’s for me—*coughChandlerMoreaucough* Ow, hey now don’t jab me.
Cassandra: Question one! Chandler: name something you consider yourself to be good at, and something you consider yourself to be bad at. Oh! I know!
Chandler: Twenty bucks, pay up.
Cassandra: I didn’t say anything, Chandler. Okay, answer then. I want to see if I’m right or not. And I know what you're bad at, too, I hope you know.
Chandler: Uh huh. Isn’t that still indirectly answering the question by checking your own answer? *jabbed* Ow! Hey! *laughing* Okay, things I’m good at… Hm. Well, the silks? That’s the best one, right?
Cassandra: If you want to be blatantly obvious, sure. Why don’t you give them something they aren’t expecting? What? *Chandler whispering quietly/inaudibly to Cassandra* Oh my God, Chandler. *laughing* Okay, fair point. You’re definitely good at that but we don’t need to tell everyone that.
Chandler: I don’t mind telling people that—
Cassandra: *cuts him off laughing* Okay no. Settle down. New question. *Chandler laughing*
Cassandra: Oh! I love these questions, let's do the “who’s most likely to…” ones! Okay, let’s see. First one. Who is grumpier?
Chandler: Does it actually say that, Cassandra? *pause* Well then, that was rude. Moving on…
Chandler: Who is most likely to stick up for themselves if they know they're right?
Simultaneously: Me. *Both laughing*
Chandler: *laughing* Yeah, I don’t think we’re going to come to an agreement about that question…
Cassandra: Next one!. Who’s most likely to say sorry first? —I’d say Chandler? I can be a little stubborn sometimes…
Chandler: A little? *jabbed again* Hey, ow! *laughing* You better quit or I won’t do what you asked me to do once we got through with this—
Cassandra: *quietly* Chandler! *Chandler laughing*
Cassandra:*clears throat* Okay, let’s do a few more and we’ll wrap this up...
Chandler: *another Chandler amused laugh* Someone got in a hurry.
Cassandra: *laughing again* I hate you.
Cassandra: These are some fan questions. If you think you can handle it.
Chandler: *scoff* I think I can handle a few fans, Cassandra. I am the legendary master of silks after all. I’ve yet to meet an admirer who I haven’t been able to indulge with my Chandler nuggets of wisdom.
Cassandra: *laughing* Okay, Chandler. Here’s a question for both of us. What’s your favorite aerial silk move? I’d say mine would be—
Chandler: The Kamikaze. That’s an easy one.
Cassandra: Where’s my twenty bucks now, Chandler?
Chandler: *laughing again* You don’t get to steal my bet, nice try. I know what you'll guess for me, too. The double forward roll…
Cassandra: You’re wrong.
Cassandra: *laughing* No, you’re right... I’m sorry. I just like the way you sound when you say ‘what.’
Chandler: I like the way you sound when you say certain words too—
Cassandra: *clears throat* Last question!! Oh my God. *laughing* How did I know that would come up again?
Chandler: What would come up again? *laughs*
Cassandra: The readers would like to know if Chandler will ever truly tell us “why he got into Shibari anyway?”
Chandler: Oh, I will happily answer that question. Let's see…
Chandler: I didn’t get to tell them what I was good at…
Cassandra: Well, you could just show me.
