Things she’d like to do on her shift: “This year I’d like to add some mayhem and adventure to the afternoon shift. I don’t know what form this could take… competitive trivia, extreme music appreciation, discussions of PG13 fanfic. Nothing’s off the table. My definition of mayhem might not be the same as yours.”

I’m Kathleen De Vere, and I’m here to PARTY!


Memes I guess.

B2J2BjeIEAAQP0_.jpg-largeLook at these kitties, they’re amazing. Well, Baxter is amazing in this shot, you can only see Khaavrens butt. Kathleen has decided to do a full-shift art challenge for her Lenticular GIF. She has tasked you all with drawing her cats, Baxter and Khaavren. That’s it, no theme, no silly stipulation. Just draw dem kitties.

Please e-mail [email protected] with your submission, subject line “Cat challenge” and please include the name you’d like used if you are selected as a winner!

You should be able to find a bunch of photos of them in both Graham and Kathleen’s Twitter accounts, as well as Graham’s Vine.

Driving: Monday, Nov 17 10am – 10pm

Points: 8
Crashes: 2

When not at Desert Bus, she can be found:
Doing LoadingReadyRun stuff.

Special Skills:
I’m really good at researching things, a sure fire hit with the kids! Who wants to know an obscure fact?
Also: villany, plotting, scheming, evil.


She’s a total geek for:

  • Cats.
  • Music.
  • World domination.

Claim to Fame:
I have many bridges in my career and yet have never been convicted of arson.

Biggest fear about Driving for DB8:
My greatest fear is that Thulsa Doom’s necromantic army will overrun Desert Bus, Vancouver Island and the World, plunging us all into 1000 years of darkness as humanity is bent and subjugated to the demon Snake God Set. I do not want him to beat me to it.
If she was reincarnated as a fruit or vegetable she would want to be:
Something with a brief life cycle so my agony filled existence as a self aware piece of plant matter could come to a mercifully short end. Either that or something with a mouth so I could scream.

Favourite Cheese:
Really strong blue cheese? Something that most people hate in any case. Those are the things that bring me joy.

Doesn’t want you to know she listens to:
There is no such thing as guilty pleasure music. Only pleasure music.

Her “moves like Jagger” are more like:
They’re not like goddamn Maroon 5’s I tell you what.

To prepare for driving the bus she is:
No preparation. I will enter a fugue state and emerge victorious 12 hours later, the bodies of my enemies strewn before me.

What symbol does your superhero cape have on it?
Superhero? Please. My villain costume doesn’t need a cape.
