Aren’t I FAScinating?

Here are my interview answers with questions supplied by tina:

If you could eat only three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Jeez- start with the hard questions, why don’t ya! Three foods? Impossible! If I were forced to eat only three foods, I would probably be forced to kill myself. I am the most fickle eater EVER- what sounds like the best food on earth this morning may seem like horrendous poison tonight. I can’t eat the same food three days in a row, never mind forEVER.

But, for the sake of playing along, I’ll say Pizza, Chocolate, and Sweet-Potato Fries (assuming, of course, that they actually have the nutritional qualities of broccoli, lean chicken, and wheat germ).

What’s the most romantic thing anyone’s ever done for you?

My husband, who was merely my boyfriend at the time, had only known me for a couple of weeks (seriously- like 2 weeks) when I got sick. He made me a little care package with tea and throat lozenges and other sweet things and packed it with a love note. It was such a kind gesture, especially considering he was only 17, and I’ve never forgotten it. That was over 11 years ago. It was about that time that I knew I had to make him mine forever.
What’s your favorite book? Why?

I have had so many favorites through my life- everything from Black Beauty to The Thief of Always to All Creatures Great and Small. Since becoming a parent, though, I don’t get much time to read, and usually the stuff I do get to read is pretty… pulpy. Not trash, really, but just kind of brain candy type books.
If you were forced to live somewhere other than where you live now, where would you choose?

I love where I live now, but if I had to move I’d probably go FAR away. Australia, perhaps. I sure liked it when we visited!
Name three movies you can watch over and over and never get tired of.

Another tough one! Three I really enjoy are Strictly Ballroom, Amelie, and Philadelphia Story, but I can’t promise that I wouldn’t get sick of them at some point.
Why did you start blogging, and what makes you keep on with it?

I started because we were living so far away from our friends and it seemed like such a handy way to keep in touch. I continue for the same reason, but also because of the opportunities to “meet” new people. I’ve been in contact with some really fascinating people over the 5 years I’ve had my blog, and I’m sure that I wouldn’t have been able to meet them otherwise.

It’s also a way for me to vent in a more acceptable form then hollering at my family or co-workers. It’s an incredibly effective stress-management tool!

Describe a perfectly happy moment in your life.

I was going to say when my son was born, but honestly that moment was seriously laden with conflicting emotions. Instead, I have to say whenever my son comes up for a spontaneous hug or kiss, just because he wants to. That’s a pretty fantastic feeling- the display of complete love from a person who you also love completely.
