5 questions

Maya's Granny asked me my interview questions for this meme, but I've been a bit slow in answering. Here's what I came up with --->

1. If you could choose a super power for a day, what would it be and how would you use it? Super power for a day, huh? Well, did y'all catch this week's Heroes, where Linderman went around healing people? I might like that. Get together with whoever could fly and scoot around the world healing all the ills that need fixing. Yeah, that'd be cool.

2. What is the most important thing you look for in a friend? Humor. Compassion and understanding. Ability to listen, not just talk. Honesty. Kindness.

3. When you think about yourself, what one thing do you hope other people notice about you? Wow... this was a bit harder for me to figure out than at first glance (I guess I spend too much time thinking about the things I hope people don't notice). But I'd hope they would come away from a discussion or first meeting with me thinking that I'd listened to them, that I'd cared enough to pay attention.

4. If you replaced your entire wardrobe tomorrow, what are the colors that you would build the new one on? I am soo not good at fashion type stuff, so... whatever colors my younger sisters would suggest. (Because, honestly, they are always right about this kind of thing.)

5. What is your favorite thing that you feel silly about liking? I sometimes feel silliest for liking - & continuing to watch/listen to - children's movies & music. I'm not talking the "Wheels on the bus," but if you were to flip through my Media Player, you'd find quite a share of Disney music. Of which I would know all the words to. And I have, at certain points, used my younger sisters, and eventually my nephews as my cover... "Oh, she wanted to watch this, and I was already in here..." type thing. My love for the Muppets is unabashed, but if you also sometimes sneak in the Gummi Bears theme song, it can make you feel a bit silly.

I absolutely would love to ask questions, if anybody would like to be interviewed. Thanks again to Maya's Granny for her excellent questions!

Here are the rules, if you would like to be interviewed:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing 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

Wonderful answers. I feel like I know you better.

When I was a junior and senior in high school, I used to volunteer to take the younger kids who lived next door to me to Disney movies so I could see them and not be considered childish! I'm so glad those kids lived there.

Oh, and I have only been drunk three times -- and all three times I led the entire bar in singing things like "I've got two eyes, they're botht the same size" and "It's not easy being green."

Maya's Granny ~ Thanks for the great questions! And I know that a lot of my college girlfriends used to come back from babysitting with Disney songs stuck in their heads too. We're not alone in that, anyways. As to your 2nd comment, I don't drink, but sometimes when I pass out, a phrase gets stuck in your head and you say it over and over. I once sang 'dance myself to sleep' (from Sesame Street) 5-10 times in a row, on my way to the floor. In school. It was a tad embarassing.

Miss Janice - Who I'm sending all the hugs right back to... here's your questions:

1. I know you're training to be a nurse: what spurred you to make such a drastic change in your (working) life? Was there a particular moment when you just decided "I have to do this" or what?

2. Is there something about your little corner of the world that thrills you? Something that you hate?

3. What's the most disturbing movie you've ever seen?

4. Is there a person in your family (core or extended) that makes you smile every time you think of them?

5.What's something you're looking forward to, in the next year or so?

Don't forget to post the rules!
