No, I'm not going to talk about my intelligence...well, not really. Recently I have had the opportunity to be interviewed by one of my bloggy friends, Texan Mama at Who Put Me In Charge of These People.
I am super thrilled to be asked questions by fellow here goes...and could someone please touch up my make-up and hair. What?! This isn't a paid interview? Ah well, no big.

1. What's the best birthday present you've ever gotten?

  • The BEST would have to have been a leather jacket with fringe I got when I was about 14 yrs old. It doesn't seem the BEST fashion choice now..but then..I was hawt!!! More recently I think it was my combination Christmas/Birthday present of my new digital camera.

2. What is your astrological sign?
  • I'm an Aquarius. (I think the new "What's your sign?" pick-up line is "A/S/L?" That's what I've seen online at least when you go into any public chat room and the people there even SUSPECT you might be female!! hehe means Age/Sex/Location?)

3. If you won a prize of $10,000 and you didn't have to pay taxes on it, what would you do with the money?
  • First of all I'd take some of it and put it towards credit cards. Then I'd probably buy myself a new kick ass laptop. hehe And then I'd probably do something silly and sensible and buy like $1000 worth of scratch off lottery tickets! hehehe Knowing me I'd likely use a good chunk of it on home improvements like paint, flooring, and such for the house.

4. Can you name the current heads of state of at least 5 world countries?
  • Ummm....Amadinajad, Queen Elizabeth, Bradjelina (haven't they founded their own country yet?), and that's about it...besides our own...Barak Obama

5. Where did you lose your virginity?
  • Sadly, in my boyfriend's rent house...sad thing is..he was sort of..umm..lacking in certain areas, and I wasn't totally sure I had lost my virginity...ho hum...and I stayed with him for over THREE years!!!

6. Why did you start blogging?
  • I originally started blogging here to give myself an outlet to get my weight loss frustrations and successes out. Blogging has been my therapy for quite some time now. I started a couple years ago on yahoo 360 and myspace. Then it was just somewhere to write out my thoughts and occasionally get some feedback. Only later did it become a venue to vent overall. I also started a digital scrapbooking blog so I could share with family members some of the things I was putting together.

7. Who was the first singing group/artist whose cassette/CD/8-track YOU bought (with your own money)?
  • Brace yourself...New Kids on The Block's "Hangin' Tough", my mother bought me Vanilla Ice's with "Ice Ice Baby" on it because she liked that song so much (GOOD thing that's the ONLY song she listened to!!!) and she also bought me a Fresh Prince cassette (the one with "Nightmare on My Street" and "Parents Just Don't Understand").

8. How do you wake up in the morning?
  • Generally with a chihuahua ass in my face...stupid dog! I generally wake up somewhat cranky as my first order of business is to get everyone else in the house up and let the dogs out so they don't crap on the floor. Most of the time my alarm on my phone or my husband's evil half broken Smithsonian-bound alarm clock rouses me, or the sound of my children's alarms going off above me that I seem to be able to hear through the floor but they can't seem to hear from across their own freakin' bedroom!!!!!

9. When was the last time you wrote someone a letter?
  • I did this earlier this month actually, with a stamp and everything!! I have a friend who is serving some time in white collar jail for a very bad mistake in her own judgement. She and I have corresponded throughout her stay there.

10. Name 3 things you'd like to do before you die, that you haven't already done.
  • Go to a tropical resort for a week with my hubby
  • Read the entire Bible, cover to cover
  • Learn two foreign languages fluently..preferably Spanish and French

Thanks again, Texan Mama for the interview! I had a blast answering the questions. I think I might have to come up with something similar in the coming week.
