Hannah over at Blairs boys interviewed me and asked me the following five questions and here are the questions and my answers. Hannah came up with some great questions and, of course, I had to add pictures. As usual these are my honest answers because I always write “Whatever I Think”. BTW Hannah is one of my great Kiwi friends. She is also a very creative gal and a wonderful wife and mom.
1. What was the first thing you bought for your unborn granddaughter? (I know you must have already bought something!)
Sarah wouldn’t let me buy anything until she was three months along which was just before Christmas. This past Christmas we all decided not to do much in the way of gift buying for each other so I didn’t get Sarah much. She never said I couldn’t get the baby anything. Ha! Ha! I got the baby some small things. I didn’t want to push my luck with my frugal daughter. Anyway, I bought baby some organic cloth diapers. I hate using disposable diapers. Bad for the environment. I used cloth on my kids so I will use cloth on new baby. I also got her a onesie, a teething toy, bibs, washcloths, a swaddle blanket, a stuffed animal and I can’t even remember what else. Now that I know it’s a girl I plan on going out next month when I get my check and pick up some girly stuff.
I suppose I could have picked a better picture of a baby but lately I am starting to remember that awful loud sound of a rugrat baby screaming crying.
2. You have an amazing sense of humour. Did you have that from a young age, or did it develop gradually?
I don’t know if my sense of humor is amazing but I love to laugh. I was very shy when I was young. As I got older my shyness started to wear off and was replaced with a big mouth. I can find humor in most everything I do and look at especially other people. People do the weirdest stuff. I don’t suffer from road rage because when drivers do dumbass stuff I find it hilarious. I think I constantly have a smile on my face when I drive because there are so many dumbass drivers around. I love to laugh at myself too. If I do something stupid (which happens a lot) it always gives me a laugh.
An example of what I find funny!!
3. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I could live on pizza forever. Also pizza covers quite a few food groups–grains, protein, vegetables, oil, and if you get a pineapple pizza you’ve got your fruit. What more could you want plus it tastes freakin’ great.
4. What is your worst/most annoying habit?
My most annoying habit? I didn’t know I had any. But if you ask Sarah I know exactly what she would say because she’s told me more than once. When I start talking my voice gets louder and louder as I get more excited and into what I am talking about. I guess it can get really loud and borders on yelling. It’s a habit I am trying to break to protect my poor family and friends from deafness.
5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?
I’d have to have money because I don’t want to live somewhere cool and be poor. I would choose a small village in England. They speak English there. I am too old to learn a new language and if I moved to a foreign speaking country I would have to learn the language or I would be a hypocrite. I am always complaining about people who move to the US and don’t learn the language. The other thing is I want to live in a cottage with a thatched roof. I can imagine the house so well. I also want to walk on the moors. That sounds so cool. I also love England because of it’s long history. I would love to visit old castles and churches. I am also waiting for my knight in shining armor to appear. I figure I have a better chance of this happening in England.
I want the horse too and some young dude man to take care of it and whatever else I want him to do.
Now, if you would like ME to interview YOU, here’s what to do:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will email you 5 questions.
3. You answer the questions on your blog.
OK, so that’s my interview. “Please come and visit our estate again for tea and crumpets.” That’s Vineyard talk for “Get your ass over here again quick.”
