Doahleigh had this little interiew on her blog and I really meant to get to it sooner but I couldn't be torn away from stitching Flea Market Souvenir.
1. If you want to participate, leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.” (And your e-mail address if I don't already have it, please.)
2. I will respond by e-mailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
1. Would you rather be beautiful but always smell terrible or be ugly but smell lovely? Can I be plain and not smell at all? Really, given two options I always go for the third.
2. The old adage says to regret nothing, and that's probably true. But if you could change something you've done, what would it be and why? Grad school? Boyfriends? Missed opportunities? No. I regret nothing. I think. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong.
3. What are some of your nicknames? Tell us the stories behind them. My mother used to call my sister and me fernface and ferndock, but we can’t even remember who was who so I have no idea about the story behind that. But that’s not so much a nickname as it is a term of endearment. I’ve always been the shortened version of my real name, so I’ve never had any real nicknames. In kindergarten, I could write the shortened version but they wanted me to write the formal version. I didn’t know how to spell it--and neither did they! I really am that little name, always have been.
In high school I had a friend who called me Nick the Dick which was shortened to “Nick the” so the nuns wouldn’t hear us say a bad word, but I have no idea why she called me that and no one else really did. I was complaining about not having a nickname in college while I was jumping around (because it was cold outside and I need to be told to wear a jacket) and someone decided I should be called Tig, as in Tigger. But I am so not a Tig. It didn’t stick.
4. What is one of your own favorite physical features and why? Also, you should show us a picture (if appropriate). My eyes. Apparently they are not photogenic; I cannot find one picture where they are not crossed, baggy, tired-looking, or carrying dark circles. Or maybe I'm just under the delusion that my eyes are a good physical feature.
5. When was the last time you cried and why? Usually I cry at commercials while I watch tv at home. But last Wednesday, I cried at Qdoba at lunch time. It was about the job. But I must stress that I cried about my perceived failure more than the actuality that I probably will lose my job. The dude gave me his hanky.
Bonus question: Who is John Galt? Yeah, I could never finish Ayn Rand’s novels. Just don’t have any appeal for me.
That's it. I promise if you ask for questions they'll be hard. And kooky! Go for it!
