1. Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2. I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3. You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4. You'll include this explanation.
5. You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed
1. How did you first meet Rainpuddle13?
Well in a literal sense I met her last year while taking English 531 (Literary Criticism). I am sure I had seen her around the department before, but I didn't know her until that class. In a more figurative sense J.K. Rowling brought us together. I heard her talking about HP and just *had* to interject... as I am prone to do. She seemed cool so we started hanging out. I have to say she is probably my best friend and don't tell her but I would be lost without her. She really improves every day. Corny I know, but she does...
2. If you could take the place of a character inside a book, who would you choose, and why?
Tough question, most female characters come to such bad ends... but I would love to be the female equivalent of Glen in The Stand. A retired professor who paints outdoors all day long... heaven!
3. If you could go back in time to one moment in your life and make a different choice, what would it be, and how do you think that things would turn out differently?
First of all I should point out that I don't believe in regrets and I like, when possible, not to spend my life looking back on all the stupid choices I have made because each choice (good or bad) makes us who we are. But if I were to look back I think the defining moment was not sending out college applications to my first or second or third choice schools in favor of staying here where I could work and go to school. I would really love to have tried my hand at getting into NYU or Cornell. Or maybe somewhere else (did I mention I also didn't research schools very much??). If I had gone to NYU I think I might have had a good shot at fulfilling my dream of being a theatre director for a city (probably like Charleston, Savannah or Atlanta).
4. Similarly, if you could go back in time and give your 16 year old self three pieces of advice or warnings about the future, what would they be?
1. That guy -- the one who is your best friend and who you think is just soooo shy around girls. Don't tell him that every girl in school wants him hoping to inflate his ego... He is simply not interested. That's right, he's gay. You're a moron for not seeing it!
2. Stop eating everything in sight. The warning all your female relatives are giving you about your metabolism slowing down is not myth it is reality. Deal with it, and lay off the cheese fries! You'll see what I mean when you are 25!
3. Stop taking yourself so seriously. This is why it seems like everyone dislikes you (you don't really like yourself very much now do you?). Just chill; you actually aren't nearly as unpopular or as unattractive as you feel.
5. Since I'm on a time-travel roll...what is a characteristic (physical or personality or whatever) that you hope your great-great-grandchildren are still inheriting and why?
My bodacious ta-ta's.
You probably think this is a joke but all the women in my family have great tits, and even though they annoy me at times they are probably the feature I like best about myself. Selfish I know...
Once a dear friend's aunt walked up to me and having never seen me before (and before she even said "hi") said "My you have great breasts!" Not something every woman will tell you, but after the initial shock I thought it was very complimentary!
