Love her.

At first I hadn't seen Cruel's thread so this one utterly confused me for a while.
I have NEVER met Cheyenne Jackson. I have never hung out with him in his dressing room, he did not tweet me, he never bought me a beverage, and he mostly certainly didn't tickle me. . .that is all.

When I hear her name I always think of the line from To Wong Foo -

"I helped her look a little bit less like Moms Mabley..."
I'm as jumpy as a virgin at a prison rodeo!
