Theme: Guilty Pleasures/I made you a spoooooky mixtape

Gypsy has a dark side. Sometimes she won't admit that her favorite type of music in the whole entire world is glam rock new wave goth.This is her guilty pleasure music. You look at her and might go,"She listens to ethnic dance music or she is a total uber-gross hipster." It depends on how she is dressed and what kind of beverage she has been drinking all day. When she tells people her favorite band in the whole wide world HANDS DOWN is Oingo Boingo she blushes. Slightly. When she drank absinthe for the first time Edith Piaf was playing but she imagined Edith Piaf singing "Baby's on Fire" by Brian Eno to her. When she hears a cello it sends her head in a spin,and her heart in a flurry.The only hardcore drug she has ever craved doing is opium. For dark artistic reasons. Of course. She keeps clove cigarettes on her at all times in case she feels like brooding in the rain.Maybe it's because her name is "french-romanian" (read TRANSYLVANIAN). There is a joke with her and someone very dear to her. "What are you going to do tonight?" And she answers,"I am going to listen to Bauhaus and smoke clove cigarettes." To which he replies," Ok, Azrielle" . She isn't normally pegged as intense. Fun,wild,silly,yes. Gothic? Dark? Not usually ever. But then,everyone has their guilty pleasures. What are yours?
