Interview Me

by Nanc filed under blog on March 29, 2005 10:20 AM

Okay, so maybe I'm the last to jump on this here pony. Or maybe there will be a second wave of this meme thing for late blooming bloggers. (I will mention no names.) Anywho, it's the interview thing, and here's how it works:

  1. Leave me a comment saying "interview me."
  2. I will respond by asking you five questions here. They will be different questions than the ones asked of me.
  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.

I stepped up to bat with Miss La' of pr0n fame. With a little help from her friends, she asked a mishmash of questions ranging from general favs to... well, ones with answers that you may not want to know.

So read on IF. YOU. DARE. [insert maniacal laughter here]

Warning: Some of the answers provided by interviewee may be lame or trivial. Other answers may be shocking and appalling. Although not solely intended for mature audiences, you may want to shield your child's eyes any way.

What was your first favorite movie, book, and song?
Huh. Odd as it sounds, this was probably the hardest question for me to answer. Simply because I am an oddity of nature and I don't tend to pick favorites. Never have. No fav color. No fav music styling. No fav position, er... um in sports... to play!
And I'm not trying to cop out of this question. In fact, I almost called my Mom to ask her if she remembered... but with five kids (me being the youngest), she doesn't recall much of that time. So from racking my own, lowly powered brain I came up with the following:

  • movie - most likely Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or some other cartoon-esque musical. I think it's difficult to remember a favorite movie from that time. I mean, we didn't have any type of media device to repeatedly play movies. And I don't remember going to the theater much as a kid. So what ever came on the ol' telly was good enough for me! Add to this that my parents had (and played) records from the popular musicals like Sound of Music and Jesus Christ Superstar. Explains a lot, eh?
  • book - either Where the Wild Things Are, a silly book that I can never find nor remember the title to (went something like 'fickle sounds like tickle sounds like pickle to me'), or a beautiful picture book my Mom got me, but again I am lost for the title. Sorry to be so damn lame.
  • song - I'm gonna kick myself for admitting this I know, but I came into music a little late and by the time I had a favorite artist or song... well, let's just say that I wore a single, white glove and a red Members Only jacket for a while. M'kay?

We want to know one thing (special, shocking, strange, groovy, etc.) about you that you think none of us knows and none of us would ever guess.This question was shortened... because you see how long my answers are!
Personally, I'd love to hear what y'all wagered I'd answer for this one. There was a lot to choose from, as I'm a special, shocking, strange, and groovy gal. But I was able to select one item from my special, shocking,... (you get the idea) past:

jell-o wrestling

Ah, the follies of youth! In my younger days before all these curves, I was sleek and trim and fit. No. Really. I was also silly and game for most anything. In the wooded quiet of rural PA, I flailed about with other women in a wresting ring filled with the desert choice of Bill Cosby (cherry flavor). I wrestled under the name "Snapper" (taken from a horrible musical "pron" movie). And I kicked ass!

What? You don't believe me? Ha! Lucky (?) for me, one of my roommates at the time was a newspaper photographer. And now I will share these photos with the world!

I am pumped and ready to go!
Bring It ON!
this was tag-team ass-whuppin'
I am victorious!
rinsed and ready!
my brother is so proud

Even though you say you have only recently (well, relatively) begun collecting smurfs, what is the one item you equate to smurfly gold - the one item that you'd want if money, rarity, etc. weren't a factor.
Smurfs items are relatively inexpensive, and even the most rare Smurf collectible is still nothing compared to other collectibles. So my smurfly gold would have to be... a smurfized VW beetle or Mini Cooper totally smurfed up! I would be proud to drive such a smurfy ride.

On the subject of fiber, I want to know what would be your heaven and hell of knitting. If you could only knit one thing, what would be your nightmare and what would be your dream project?
Hmm... my knitting hell would be having to knit 1970's acrylic ponchos forever. Or if I had to crochet it! [shudder] My heaven would have to be socks. It's my new knitting skillz and I'm all gung-ho about socks. And not only is there some beautiful and funky soft yarns, but it's nearly the most useful knit item ever (the exception being dishcloths).

Your husband has a mighty PEZ collection. Since you're constantly seeing them, do you ever have dreams of PEZ? Are they interesting? Scary? Dirty? Wait, please don't answer that last one.
Ha! No, I've not dreamed of PEZ (although Matty has). I've been chased around the office with a frightening bobble-head PEZ girl. (Matty must hide her - she creeps me out!) In the old apartment, I could see all the glow-in-the-dark PEZ from my side of the bed. That was pretty disturbing. But no, I've never dreamed, good or bad, of PEZ.

Ah, it's like a great weight has been lifted. Now... who's turn is it?!

A quick word to the Moms out there regarding #2... you never really can tell. I was a good girl growing up. Not only was I a Girl Scout, but I was even on the calendar! Go figure.

Awesome answers NanC! We bow to the snapper!
Are we talking a VW in homage to Truly Nolen style with the smurf head atop? Maybe a smurf head painted on the top?
And you know we only harassed out of love and b/c we wanted to know all about ya miss NanC:)

Hmmm...as for the next victim(s) I think it's time for the purling p's to step up to the plate!
