My pal Fluffycat sent me five interview questions (at my behest, of course), so here they are:
1) Is there anything you wish you had done before having children?
One of my few regrets is that I didn't do the solo Europe backpack thing after graduation; I moved to California and started working instead. An adventure of a different sort to be sure, but yeah, I do on occasion wistfully think on that trip not taken---I had bought the backpack and budget travel guides and everything.
2) What three books would you bring on a desert island?
Fluff knows me well enough that I'm sure she's laughing at my swithers in answering this question. Does "all of them" count as three? No? Okay. Hm. Robertson Davies' "Salterton Trilogy", Ruth Reichl's "Tender at the Bone" (if I'm stuck with no food, at least I can read about it), and Adrian Nicole LeBlanc's "Random Family". These are all books I've reread at least a thousand times, and I still love them.
3) If you could wake up at the same time every day (without children or animal interruptions), what time would it be?
Oddly enough, I think it would be 6 or 6:30, provided I get to have a good night's sleep beforehand. I actually love being up early and having my coffee and then getting on with the day. I just end up feeling that much more productive. I generally DO get up between 6 and 7 these days, but the good night's sleep prior is less of an option.
4)If you had to pick a new identity, what would your name be?
Trixie LaRue. No, actually, Gene and I had this conversation once and I think my new name was going to be Catherine Gibson. I'm not going to explain why on this blog in case I do ever have to go into the witness protection program, ha ha.
5) Do you ever want to eat Korean BBQ again?
Ha ha. Actually, yes, I do. If only to exorcise the previous demons. For those who don't know, when I was pregnant with Peebs Fluffycat and I went to have Korean BBQ and I got massively ill with food poisoning. I'm not sure it was the Q though, I think it was more likely the bi bim bap or the nasty "chicken" gyro I had had earlier that day.
Here are the instructions to continue:
