haha. That’s actually an inside joke, based on a real event, which you can watch in the third episode of My Gimpy Life.

haha, so glad you found it. I look like such a bitch.

Felicia wrote the part of Venom for me. Michele Boyd is an amazing kisser. She has really soft lips.

If you watch the S3 behind the scenes there is this great moment when we are filming and a bug attacks Wil Wheaton and he freaks out. I was so in character as Venom that you see me just rolling my eyes at him. I think the clip may be on YouTube. Trying to find it....

Thank you. I think some of the most surprising issues, which we touched on in season one, are that a lot of casting offices aren't wheelchair accessible. It's also frustrating that I rarely get seen for roles that aren't disability specific. There's no reason I can't play the teacher, the best friend, the computer tech, etc..

A couple things: As an actress I was frustrated because I wasn’t getting many auditions and therefore wasn't working much. I thought that creating my own show would be a good showcase of my talent and would hopefully lead to other work. In addition, I don’t think people with disabilites are represented enough in the media and I’ve always wanted to share what it’s like being a girl on wheels. Instead of waiting for someone else to do it, I figured I’d do it myself. I was very much inspired by what Felicia Day did with The Guild.

Hmmm... It always cracks me up when people don't think I'm really disabled. Or will say "You're too pretty to be in a wheelchair." I have no idea what that means.

When the Axis of Anarchy are introduced in Season 3 and we have the stand off in front of the Game Stop with the Knights of Good. And then I blame Vork for trying to push me into traffic. I love when both guilds are together. Felicia is the best. Super smart, generous, funny, focused, and she has great skin.

I don't care for it. It sounds like someone is literally chained to their wheelchair. I'm in and out of my wheelchair all day long, when I transfer into my car, onto the couch, into my standing frame, onto my bed....
