Interview with Paper Napkin

Sheryl posted an interview meme about a month ago, and I decided to jump in and join. She was a little under the weather, so it took her a while to get the questions to me. Then I was all tied up with that pesky house-buying thing. So in Sheryl's words, better late than never. Unless you're waiting for a liver transplant.

Here's how it works:
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.

Here are the 5 questions Sheryl asked me:

1. If you won $2 million tomorrow, what are 3 things you would do with the money? Put $1.5 in the bank so I can live off the interest; rent Oprah's chef/personal trainer to get me off my dimpled rear; take a fabulous long-term vacation involving a beach and beverages with umbrellas.

2. Are you superstitious about anything? I have an elaborate New Year's Day meal that I eat every year: black-eyed peas for luck; cabbage for folding money; carrots for coins; poppy seeds for health. I figure you can never have enough luck, money or health, so what can it hurt?

3. What is one event in the future whose outcome you would like to know now? Will they find a cure for Alzheimer's Disease? Since my mom has it, as did her mother, I am very interested in the answer to this question. My genes are loaded against me. On a less serious issue, I would like to know how Z and I fare through her teen years. At the moment, she is four going on 17. The attitude is killing me - when it isn't cracking me up. Somehow, I think I will find it more difficult to see the humor in her 'tude when she really is 17.

4. If you could be the spokesperson for any product on the market, which product could you endorse wholeheartedly? Windex Multi-Surface Antibacterial Spray. I love this stuff. It was the only cleaner I could use while pregnant without gagging. It has a pleasant citrus scent and works on everything! I have a glass kitchen table, stainless appliances, stone floors and Formica counter tops. It cleans them all. LOVE. Also, DaVinci Gourmet Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup. It makes a cup of coffee taste like a treat without adding any calories. It is also great for making diet vanilla cokes. Yum!

5. When you're having a bad day what's the best thing you can do to cheer yourself up? The best thing would be to talk to a friend or a sister. They can usually get my mind off of whatever it is that is getting me down. What I actually do is eat something. In the dictionary under "emotional eater?" Is a picture of me. Sigh. That is why I need Oprah's trainer (see number 1.).


  1. I'm game! Interview me.

  2. I'm really enjoying your blog and I just gave you the Kreativ Blogger Award, come on over to my blog to pick it up!

    I'm game, too, interview me.

  3. Thanks for playing along! I will definitely try the Windex and the SF syrup.

Thank you for feeding my habit.
