More Gangsta Than Hipster

The Blogosphere is ripe with the new meme related to Mpls. St. Paul Magazine's hipster quiz. I thought it would be fun to run the quiz by our old friend and reader Leon, to see how much of a hipster he is. Here are the results:

What's the first thing you read in the Strib? The ads for phone sex lines found in the sports page
What's on your morning drive dial? Depends upon whose car I stole, most are tuned to NPR
When not in town, where are you? Ramsey County Jail or a treatment facility
Who's your local band/musician? Don't like local music; a homeless guy with a guitar on University cuts into my take while begging
Where do you have season tickets? I get a ticket almost every season for public urination
What's your apparel store(s)? A pair of what?
Where's your favorite "go to" place that always seems to have just the right thing? Goodwill

What's your bakery? KFC, their day old biscuits are delicious
Where do you mall? I am homeless and even I know mall is not a verb
Where are you on a Friday night? Searching outside the bars on University for cigarette butts that have a little life left in them, or avoiding baby mammas
Where's your gallery(s)? What the f*** are you talking about?

What's your substance of choice? Lysol strained through white bread
What subjects are you a total geek over? Don't disrespect me or I'll cut you

What's your favorite night? Any summer night; it's cold living on the street
What's the next performance you'll attend? St. Paul has some great experimental theater, it's hard to decide

I dropped by the Midway KFC for takeout when I was up there last year and I'm pretty sure I saw Leon hanging around my minivan. Does he speak Spanish, or does he just blissfully ignore the KFC employees?

Leon My Homeboy- I'm a curious MWM looking for a good story to tell. Your profile seems to fit right into my template. Perhaps we can meet for a cup of coffee at KFC (although truth be told I prefer White Castle) or take a bus ride together sometime. I think you'll find we have a lot in common. My interests include porn, beating people with sticks, abandoning my children to chase younger women, and defecating in Mitchell Berg's lawn.
