Five Questions from Ally

I'm hopping on everyone else's banwagon, and doing the five questions thing. As far as my blog universe extends, it started with Brandy...but I imagine she got it from someone else, too.

Before I start, thanks to Aaron for picking me as the blogger he most wants to trade places with. Surprisingly, it has virtually nothing to do with the knockout of a roommate, either;-) Unfortunately, my life is not that exciting...I guess a lot of weird shit does seem to happen to me, but I also spend like an hour a day doing fifth grade homework...not that exciting. As for The Boy...well...I don't really know how to respond to

So, super special thanks to Ally for these always, she made me think;-)

(1) If you had to work in an entirely different profession, what would it be (realistically)?

Well, I was a political science major in college, so I guess the short answer is probably "graduate student", since being a poli-sci doesn't really qualify you for much else;-) If I had to work in another profession, I think I might say "hospitality", which I know is kind of a broad brush. I bartended and waited tabled in college, and I always likes it. The pace can get really hectic, but people are generally in a really good mood, and you always get to meet lots of people. And I think I am sort of good at about Casino host...can I pick that?

(2) If you could go anywhere in the world for two weeks with only one other person, where would you go and who would you take? (Note that childcare for Munchkin is not an issue.)

I am torn on this one...I have a lot of possible answers. I'd love to take Smoking Hot Roommate somewhere just to be goofy girls for the whole time. And I would love to take Munchkin almost anywhere.

A close second place would be that I would love to take Tinkerbelle to Disney World. I feel like I have a lot of time to catch up on with her, and that would be a really great way to do it. I can't get the first 7 years of her life back, but I feel like that would be a really great start to the next seven, and all of the years after that.

But if I have to pick one, I would take The Boy away, just the two of us. Someplace secluded and tropical, just to sit on the beach, feed each other fruit and talk about stupid couples stuff. He puts up with a lot for me, and one major part of that is a lot less "alone" time than most people our age would normally get. Two weeks alone would be a really special time:-)

(3) What was the last thing you did that you felt guilty about?

Ahh...and easy one! Talking to Munchkin when I was absolutely shit-canned drunk on Saturday. That's not the example I should be (or want to be) setting.

(4) What is your favorite trait about yourself? (I stole this from Brandy)

Hmm...I think I would say that I am very genuine. When I say things, I mean them, and I am proud to say that I never half-ass personal relationships. I am not sure that makes sense...but it does to me:-)

(5) What well known person (celebrity, politician, etc.) would you like to hang out with for a weekend in the mountains?

Depends on what you mean by "hang out", I guess...but Daniel Craig is gonna be high on the list.

If it is NOT going to be someone that I intend to rub oil all over, then I would pick Oprah. I know that is kind of cheesy (and that she is starting to get kinda nuts with garbage like this whole "The Secret" thing) but she is pretty hard not to admire.

First, we could have some solid Chi-town talk;-) And then I would want to talk to her about her show, and about her ability to reach people, and then finally about her ability to reach the levels of success that she has without creating the mountain of bad will and resentment that some other female celebrity/executives like her have (say, Martha Stewart...)

Or, I would pick any of the women that I mentioned in my favorite post ever (read it!).


So those were Ally's questions, but I will also open this up to anyone else that has others! Ally said she had kind of a hard time because I already told her so much stuff, there wasn't a lot left to some of you that don't know as much about me...feel free to send me your own question(s) and I will answer them, too!!!

If you are interested in participating, here are the rules:

Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me!”

I will respond by e-mailing you five questions. I get to pick them, and you have to answer them all.

You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.

You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
