I haven't done one of these in a while and since I know you're all dying to get to know me better, I took the bait. This self-analyzing interview came to me from me new friend, Dieter Moitzi, at Confessions of a Wannabe Writer

Dieter's blog is a novel but when you read it, you think you're reading about his life. Who knows, maybe you are? Check him out and see what you think.

Here goes...don't judge me...

1. If you have pets, do you see them as merely animals, or are they members of your family?
I think this one is obvious. They're my children.

2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?
To work from home. And make a healthy living at it, too!

3. What is the one thing most hated by you?
My ass. Sorry, I know this is probably supposed to be deep and philosophical but I really, really hate my ass. Always have.

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
Probably blow it all in a year.

5. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood?
Finding the humor in life.

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?
Being loved.

7. What is your bedtime routine?
Can't even attempt to sleep until I'm exhausted. Then I'm out cold in 5 minutes.

8. If you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your partner?

9. If you could watch a creative person in the act of the creative process, who would it be?
A painter

10. What kinds of books do you read?
Every diet book on the market but my flavor of choice is horror.

11. How would you see yourself in ten years time?
Looking fabulous from all my plastic surgery and living somewhere that's warm all year.

12. What’s your fear?
Botched plastic surgery

13. Would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to visit outer space?
Hell no

14. Would you rather be single and rich or married, but poor?
Single and rich

15. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Brush my teeth

16. If you could change one thing about your spouse/partner what would it be?
They would exist

17. If you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be?
Isabella Rossellini. Say it with an Italian accent and tell me it's not the sexiest name ever.

18. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?
Forgive yes, forget no.

19. If you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be?

Now I need to tag FOUR blog amis and I'm choosing four that I think you'll all love getting to know.

Nikki@My Cyber House Rules One of THE coolest chicks I know. I mean, she lives on a BOAT. How frickin' cool is that?!

Male guy@Simply Suthern He's such a man of mystery. What does he look like? What's his name?

Brittany@Saturday's Rusted Railroad Yeah, I don't get the name, either. I love her because she loves her incontinent Rottie, Ziva, and her gay cat, Rodney. When you go check her out, look at her URL address. She makes no sense, I tell ya!

Joel@I Was Born Very Young I think he was in Devo in the 80's. If you like what you see, be sure to follow him. He really gets off on that.

And you, dear friends that I've tagged, need to pass the torch to four more friends.

And so goes the circle of life....


  1. Hey, how cool is that? I had a good laugh with several of your answers which are perhaps just a teensy bit more honest than mine ;-) Especially the 1-billion-dollar question. I'm sure I'd do the same, might even beat you and blow it all in two months! You know, cash is that virtual things that fleetingly touches my bank account each month when it's salary time, then vanishes I dunno where I dunno why.
    One last thing: don't you dare mess up that cute face of yours with plastic surgery! I'm sure you'll look brilliant even with a wrinkle or do. Just saw a photo of that famous and gorgeous Italian actress Ornella Muti, who has visibly done plastic surgery. She now looks a lot like your cat, minus the ability to do mimicks (otherwise the skin might crack in several places) PLUS they've completely fucked up one eye, which resembles something out of a Picasso painting (and I'm NOT talking about his Pink Period but his totally Cubistic Period). Now, I wouldn't want THAt to happen to my pretty darlin Chrissy! Best to you, and glad you seemed to have had fun answering this survey...

  2. You are the best, my friend. Three questions:
    1. How could a wanna be stripper hate her ass?
    2. How dare you tell your readers that huge lie about me being so shallow that I get off on people following my blog? (for those of you reading this ... My blog address is www.iwasbornveryyoung.com, my home phone number is 1(800) IAMNEEDY and I have no friends).
    3. From this day forth ... Would you please refer to me as Antonio Banderas?
    Love ya ... Joel

  3. Oh crap. This is so wrong. Reveal? hmmmmmmmmm??
    Will have to think about that one. LOL

    Here's a clue, he aint pretty.

  4. Even though we've been blogging with each other for what?, two years now, it continues to amaze me how much we have in common. I would have answered MANY of these question the same!

    "Isabella Rossellini. Say it with an Italian accent and tell me it's not the sexiest name ever."

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! True, and I adore her!


  5. I love you for tagging me here. But, I'm an idiot and new to blogging, so AM I SUPPOSED TO ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS TOO?

    <--- noob.

  6. *tag* I'm it. Oh, I like the sound of that: "I'm IT!" Ha, being that I never was the "it girl" in school I get to be "it girl" in my own mind...

    I am slowly visiting all the blogs you've tagged. And will follow up with the expected homework. Thanks sweetie pie!

    Your darling Nikki xo!

  7. Hehe, I love these little questionnaires! Haven't been in to read your blog in a while as I shut my own one down for a while (just needed a breather!) and clearly my life has been the poorer for it - I love reading your musings.


  8. @Dieter,
    I know! I don't know where the heck my money goes. I think elves come and drain my checking account at night. Evil elves, not the Christmas ones.

    I looked up Ornella Muti. She was so beautiful. Why can't women just age gracefully? A little nip or tuck is fine but she's messed up.

    @Antonio Banderas,
    Of course I hate my ass. I have lots of issues, remember??

    @Simply Suthern,
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. :-)

    I believe it, brotha! EESA-BELLA RR(Rolling R)OH-SA-LEENIE. Love her.

    Hey, babe, can't do fun stuff like blog at work. I see you figured it out!

    @Nikki Rules,
    Don't you ever doubt that you are the IT girl!

    Hi darling! At least I still get to see your lovely face on Facebook. MUAH!

  9. I have decided that - due to answers 11 and 17 - we may be sisters.

    Also, eerily, I had a beagle until 2 years ago (I can't speak about it) and my cat both looks and sleeps EXACTLY like yours.

    Also, I totally plan to be a stripper if my business ever fails.

    Unless, of course, my bits have begun to sag by that time, but the, I guess...reference answer 11.

    Much love,

    - B x

  10. We are alike in quite a few ways:) Fun post:)

  11. I just found your blog....you're a funny lady! I love your 'Blog Name' by the way....(wish I would've thought of it!) I always say if I could turn back time, I would've been a stripper or a cop! :):) Having read this post - I feel like I know you already! I'll be hanging around from now on....so be warned! We have a lot in common.....I have issues, too!

  12. Love your answers...you are very clever!

    I hate my cellulited ass...and thighs too....but I hate war more.

    Have a great day!


  13. @The Barreness,
    Well, Sis, I'm sure there's a market for sagging cougah strippers so let me know. I'm in!

    @Simply Suthern,
    Thankkkk yoouuu....

    They were interesting questions!

    @Jenny Brown,
    Fabulous! We welcome issues here. :-)

    @Not So Simply Single,
