Welcome to Interviews With My Ex-Girlfriend, in which Autostraddle writers get back in touch with their ex-girlfriends to ask them Five Simple Questions:
How long did we date?
Why did we break up?
What did you learn from our relationship?
What do you miss most about me?
Would you invite me to your wedding (why/why not)?
Alex and Riese at The Spice Girls concert, January 2008
Hello it's me, Riese. While in Big Bear for our annual senior staff retreat, I decided to interview Autostraddle co-founder Alexandra Vega about our torrid relationship, which lasted for an ambiguous amount of time in the 2007-2010 era. Intern Grace recorded the interview, which seemed to provide great entertainment for the whole family, especially the parts we had to cut.
Topics we should've covered but forgot to include: how everybody thought we were twin sisters, that time Alex told me she wanted to be loved like a puppy is loved. And now she's dating a dog trainer! See everything works out...
