Saturday 9: Margaritaville
1. Tell us about a time that you had way too much Jose Cuervo. Actually, I don’t really like tequila, so I’ve never had enough where I could classify it as “too much.” Now rum or vodka on the other hand… oh, lordy. There was that time that I managed to get so plastered that I wound up in the service elevator at the Back Bay Sheraton in Boston. Oooh, that was not a good night.
2. Do you agree with the following statement: “The older you get, the faster time goes by.”? Absolutely. Case in point – what the heck happened to January? I mean really – wasn’t yesterday New Year’s Day?
3. What do you usually do during your “down time?” I cross stitch through most of it. Or I play World of Warcraft. Usually the former, though – it helps me quiet my brain and forces me to slow down and relax.
4. When it comes to the opposite sex, do you feel you have a grasp on ‘em – or do they continue to just surprise you? I think I have a pretty good grasp. But of course, there are always surprises. Life needs surprises to make it interesting.
5. What is your home town famous for? My hometown is Billings, Montana. I don’t know that it’s famous for anything itself, but it’s the largest city in Montana and a major tourism hub for people heading to Yellowstone Park, Battle of the Bighorn National Monument (formerly Custer Battlefield), and several fishing, hunting, and skiing areas.
6. How many romantic relationships have you had? Three that I’d qualify as relationships.
7. What’s the best concert that you’ve ever been to? It’s a toss-up between the two U2 concerts I’ve been to (PopMart or 360), or the first time I saw Billy Joel at the Fleet Center. All were fantastic in their own ways.
8. Which famous person would you like to meet? Why? I really would like to meet Obama. I admire the man who worked his ass off to get where he is, and to see his determination to get up every day to do his job despite the nastiness directed toward him from so many of his fellow citizens.
9. Has a newspaper or television reporter ever interviewed you? If so, what were the circumstances and what did you think when you read or saw what you said? I’ve been interviewed a couple times (both for TV and for the paper). All for school-related things. I honestly don’t recall what I thought when I read them – I’m sure I was excited. I suppose the fact that I can’t remember it means that nothing went badly!
