Mimi/Minerva Character Profile

In The Lies Have It, we'll meet Mimi/Minerva, artist by day, dominatrix by night.  Here's a little bit more about her...

Real name: Mimi Geraldina Westlake.  Minerva is her "scene" name for when she's participating in the fetish scene.  She frequently uses a flip-flop or a sandal to slap the firm buttocks of hirsute, blue-eyed men.

Occupation: Artist and sculptor.  Her last exhibit was at the Portent Gallery and featured a series of
decorative accessories made from discarded bidets.  One antique bidet from Belgium had been remodelled into an aquarium (bring your own goldfish).  With another bidet, Mimi covered it in fake gemstones, added a bevelled mirror as a lid, and turned it into a one-of-a-kind jewellery box.  It sold for $6000 to an anonymous art collector from The 'Shwa.

Favourite quotations:
  • If sex doesn't scare the cat, you're not doing it right.
  • A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession. 
  • Censorship feeds the dirty mind more than the four-letter word itself.
Heroes: Lorena Bobbitt, Lady Godiva, Mae West.

Favourite authors: Marquis de Sade, Hunter S. Thompson, and Bill Watterson.

Surprising fact: Was in Brownies, Girl Guides, and other paramilitary organizations until she was about 15.  She was quietly asked to leave after an "incident" involving Girl Guide cookies, lighter fluid, inflatable water-wings, and a myopic boy from the Cub Scouts camp down the road.  However, before her halo became tarnished, she won the orienteering prize for three consecutive years.  To this day, she can identify weeds and deciduous tree bark by smell. 

Fears: Rice Crispy squares and brass.

In College she was voted most likely to:  Beat Paul Newman's (Cool Hand Luke) record for eating hard-boiled eggs.  On her 20th birthday, she ate 54 eggs in just over an hour.  Her prize for winning the bet involved a waterbed, several ostrich feathers, and 24 hours alone with Jared Finkletsein.
