My Interview with Jason

A while back, Jason posted this on his blog, and asked if any of his readers would like to be interviewed. Since I have buttloads of free time on my hands (hahaha!) I said:

Sure, what the hell! Interview me!

So, here goes nothin'!


1. Assuming you bowl, after you release the ball and it starts to go towards the gutter, do you stand and move your arms the other way while yelling NO!!! Back over this way!!! Hoping the ball hears you and moves back to the center of the alley???
No, since I'm actually a pretty decent bowler. I do, however, use this little trick - when there's only one pin left standing, and it's a bit wobbly, I jump as hard as a can, hoping this will send a tremor powerful enough to knock the pin over. Sadly, this has actually worked once or twice.

2. If you could have free, unlimited service for 5 years from an extremely good cook, chauffeur, housekeeper, or a masseuse which would you choose?"
Absolutely, hands-down, without a doubt housekeeping!!! I suppose I should cut myself some slack since everyone knows I don't have much "free time" in between mommy-ing and working 3 jobs, but I'm afraid I'm gonna end up on an episode of Oprah soon :(

3. Eating at an Italian restaurant, someone in your party orders a glass of milk to accompany her dinner. Knowing there is no particular reason why she shouldn't order a proper glass of wine, do you point and laugh? Or not?
HELL no! I'm basically a disgrace to my people, as I'm probably the only Italian out there (100% Italian, by the by!) who doesn't like wine. As a matter of fact, I hate it. So, I would NEVER give anyone a hard time about not ordering wine.

4. What is your worst vice?
Jeez, I have many. Where do I start? Chocolate, sweets, blogging/reading blogs, men that are bad for me (although, thankfully, I haven't had time for them in a long time!)...ok that's enough for now ;-)

5. What is your best characteristic?
I suppose it sounds cliche, but I'm a people-person. I love being the social butterfly. I suppose that's why I love being at the bar so much, despite the damage it is doing to my body! I've been the social committee chairperson at every school I've ever worked. I spent over $30,000 remodeling my basement just so that I can throw killer parties. (Sadly, I have yet to find the time to do it, other than the couple of get-togethers I let my son have.)

OK, I'm not going to follow Jason's rules completely. He said we should ask our readers to let us interview them, but that's just too big a time commitment for me right now.

Just for the record... I would be the one ordering milk with my italian meal :-)

I have no idea why but milk with my meals is just so appropriate... and the ONLY time milk sounds good :-)

On another note... Yes, I still drink milk out of the carton... Shame on me :-)

Love this...I am with you on the bowling part...jumping will work perhaps ONE we keep trying. ;)
Milk? guys are funny.
I would totally pick the housekeeper too. A personal chef? I would turn into a huge person.
A clean house? I would have more time to exercise.
Take care,

Housekeeper definitely wins!!

I would soooo love a clean house without having to clean it =)

Milk with food? Yuck! Double yuck! When I was in China all the women would order Milk with their meals breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Triple Yuck.

BTW -- Thanks for your super nice comment =)

Clippy Mat said...

you don't like wine?
you call yourself Italian?
that's okay, i'm NOT italian, so I'll just have to have your share.

miss r said...

I'd pick housekeeper, too! I have Joe for most of the other options. haha

Jason, as himself said...

Sorry, in my last comment I hadn't realized that you already answered your questions. My computer is on the fritz and my bookmarks are, well, not on this borrowed computer.

I love that you are a people person. I am in certain situations, but with a big group of people that I don't know? Not so much. I'm actually painfully shy in those kinds of situations.

Thanks for being willing to be interviewed! It was fun.
