February 2012- PoundHer-Down #5PHD
Pale Burnhardt: How long have you been skating?
PoundHer-Down: I've been roller blading since age 8, roller derby since November 2010.
PB: What do you skate on?
PHD: R3s with Heartless Chasers and Creepers.
PB: You have a lot of girls that look up to you, but is there any skater out there that YOU look up to?
PHD: I don't know. I guess Vyolent Grimm (mid iowa rollers) or PBR (sioux city roller dames)
PB: You work, you have a family and kids, and you hold a huge amount of responsibilities that help run the team. Were do you get your steam from?
PHD: It's from having OCD and determination, I would say. No point in doing something unless you finish it.
PB: Do you have a lucky piece of clothing or ritual you do before a bout?
PHD: I am very adamant about my hair and makeup. I spend way to much time in front of the mirror. When I was younger, I called my cousin "DooDoo" because I would watch her "do" her "doo" (hair). Now I do that. I taught myself to french braid hair at age 5.
PB: If you were offered a top secret job with the CIA, would you accept?
PHD: Fuck yeah...oh...no. Nevermind. Not a big fan of our government. But I don't want to get into politics now.
PB: On the other hand, would you want to be a celebrity? With everything that entails (ie. paparazzi, imdb profile, the income)
PHD: uhhmmm...yeah. Growing up I always wanted to be a singer. But I don't have a singing voice.
PB: What is one exceptional skill you wish you had?
PHD: I wish I had a good singing voice, and was a good singer.
PB: Do you have a secret talent?
PHD: I am a good artist. I like
drawing with a pencil and painting with oils... I don't know if that's really a secret though....
PB: Describe your ideal kitchen. What would it look like? Colors? Smells? Huge fridge?
PHD: I would want a huge kitchen. Like a restaurant but more home style. Toned down colors... but still has a flat top griddle and grill. Breadmaker. Big mixer. Lots of counterspace. Granite counters. Stainless steel.
PB: If you wanted to legally change your name, what would you change it to?
PHD: Keiti, my Tongan name. (PB: Tonga is a little island kingdom just north of New Zealand, east of Australia by Fiji.)
PB: Did you have a childhood keepsake, like a stuffed animal or blanket? Did it have a name?
PB: On a lighter note, what restaurant would you love to have a $100 gift card to?
PHD: Buffalo Wild Wings. Been craving it and I didn't get to go this weekend.
PB: Say you had to give up one of your five senses forever? (sight, touch, tast, smell, or hearing)
PHD: Smelling. Just because I think I would be cool without it.
PB: You are almost done. Last one. What is your favorite type of shoe?
PHD: Skateboarding DC shoes. I like flat comfortable shoes. Other than that, I really like high heel boots.
