My friend Beth put out a call to be interviewed, and I answered it, and then she totally cheesed out and put the questions on her blog, but I decided to answer them anyway, because I really am just that uncreative lately with blog topics.
1. Remember the movie Brewster’s
Millions? That happens to you, except on a smaller scale.
You receive a million dollars that you must spend in 30 days. However,
you cannot have any assets to show for the money at the end of the
month (and you can’t buy something and then destroy it), you cannot
waste the money, you cannot give it away, and you cannot tell anyone
what you are doing. How do you ditch the dough in a month or less?
Can’t tell anyone? Can I tell my husband? Because I’d take a super extravagant vacation with a nanny to care for Michael so Mommy and Daddy could have some fun too!
If you could have a dinner party with any three famous people, living
or dead, you would be wasting your supernatural powers on hosting
dinner parties. What would you do instead?
With three famous people? Why am I asking questions when I start all of these questions? Drink wine.
4. What’s the best thing since sliced bread? Now, sliced bread
ain’t all that impressive, so what’s the best mediocre, hum-drum
improvement or advancement that has made modern life just ever so
slightly more convenient for humanity, along the lines of saving
yourself five seconds every time you want a piece of bread.
Tivo. And my Tassimo coffee maker. Because it makes coffee, in under a minute. With no measuring. And no screw ups. And the iPhone.
5. What’s your best quality? The response to this question must
be a simple declarative statement. You may elaborate on that
statement, provided that your elaboration does not include the words
“but,” “however,” or “although,” or any other hedging, equivocating,
back-sliding, gerrymandering (which is not at all appropriate in this
context, but I think it should be, don’t you?) or any other type of
backing down from the simple declarative statement with which you began
I’m the best friend you will ever find.
