I PICK THE SKIN ON MY FEET

“This only happens once a year, but my feet will peel, just from be­ing cal­loused, and I re­ally love peel­ing them. It’s very sat­is­fy­ing. The skin’ll come off in sheets. You don’t feel any of it, it’s all com­pletely dead, but it’s just re­ally fun to peel off. Ev­ery­body makes fun of me for it, so I don’t think it grosses them out that much. They say, ‘Oh, there goes Gerd, peelin’ her feet again.’ Gerd’s my mid­dle name, so most of our crew will call me Gerd.”

I HAD A CRUSH ON MY BABYSIT­TERS

“It took me a while to re­alise this, but I def­i­nitely had a crush on all of my babysit­ters when I was younger – but I didn’t re­alise ’til I worked out I like girls. I was like, ‘Oh, that’s why I cried when­ever our babysit­ters left.’ I re­mem­ber feeling par­tic­u­larly heart­bro­ken when we drove one back to her work. We dropped her off, and then got home and I was watch­ing Casper, and the main girl kinda re­minded me of the babysit­ter, and I was so sad.”

I GO ON­LINE SHOP­PING WHEN I’M DRUNK

“I’m a pretty re­spon­si­ble drunk so this isn’t re­ally bad, but I’ll or­der stuff on­line. I or­dered a bunch of art books one time and I to­tally for­got about it. Then weeks later they ar­rived and I was like, ‘When did I or­der th­ese?!’ I had been think­ing about them for a while and drunk me was like, ‘Al­right, bitch! We’re do­ing this!’”

I NEVER STOLE ANY­THING… UN­TIL RE­CENTLY

“This past New Year’s I was in a bar, and it had a bunch of bal­loons on the ceil­ing, and I def­i­nitely stole, like, 10 of them. I never stole any­thing grow­ing up. I have the guilti­est con­science. My brother’s ex­girl­friend in high school I’m pretty sure was a klep­to­ma­niac. I would go to the shop with her be­fore school and she would al­ways steal some­thing. Even just be­ing near her steal­ing, I could not handle.”

I RE­ALLY HATE BE­ING COLD

“My big­gest pet peeve is be­ing cold. If I’m in a room with AC that’s cranked up, I go crazy! It happens a lot on the tour bus. I wouldn’t even say it makes me grumpy – it used to, be­cause I would project that out­wards, but now I’m like, ‘Okay ev­ery­body else needs this, so go put on sweat­pants.’”

MY BIG­GEST RE­GRET IS WORK­ING TOO HARD

“I re­gret work­ing re­ally hard in high school to get good grades. A cou­ple of weeks ago my mom was talk­ing to my brother and I, say­ing: ‘I al­ways told you guys, if you got a C or above, we were happy, as long as your be­hav­iour in class was good.’ I swear I never re­mem­bered them say­ing that! I was con­vinced we had to get straight As! Maybe the pres­sure was com­ing from my­self, but it made school un­en­joy­able and stress­ful when it didn’t need to be. But I think that ap­plies to a lot of other chap­ters in my life, too, just putting way too much pres­sure on my­self.”
