Mips: frivolous notes of the Skyylark


Another opportunity for me to talk about myself...

Fellow blogger cK was a part of a little game where bloggers interviewed one another, and I wanted in! I've been on a creativity drought lately and I figure this'll get the wheels in motion once again. Plus, I knew cK was an excellent interviewer. About a year ago I sat next to him at a Twins game, and straight out of left-field he threw question after question at me like I was in a Barbara Walters Special. And after each question was answered, he just stared out into the field, with a thoughtful look on his face, responding, "ahhh, yes, I see." I often wondered what he thought of my answers, and whether he was internally uncovering the kind of person I was by the seemingly insignificant questions. Hehe, am I correct in thinking this, ck? So here's the five questions he sent me:

Q: What other city (outside of Minnesota, please) would you like to live in for at least six months?
A: Surely in a European city, and one where I could take up a new language. I've always LOVED singing in Italian, and if I had to choose a new language to learn, that would be it. I can't get enough of the fluidity and rhythm of the language. One could be saying, "screw off", and it could still sound like, "I love you". I'd also want to live in a spot rich with culture and history, but would have cute, cozy little nooks and crannies as well. Rome? Venice? I dunno, I'd probably have to research various Italian cities to decide for sure, but it would definitely be in Italy.

Q: What's your favorite type of shoe?
A: I've just looked over my shoe collection, (which is much more extensive than I'd like to admit), and I've decided that my answer must be divided into two categories: winter and summer.
Winter: I love light, stripey, nerdy tennis shoes. Preferably in a bright color. I have 3 pairs of sneakers that fit that description: orange, pink, and powder blue. I just can't be sad while gazing down at these types of shoes.
Summer: I'm a flip-flop freak all-the-way. All kinds, I don't discriminate.

Q: When did you last draw with crayons?
A: Today actually, heh! I was helping one of my 4-year-olds learn to print his last name:) But honestly, I love working with crayons outside of work. It's really relaxing to draw with crayons. I took a few art courses in college, and I was the only student who carried a pack of crayons with all my pencils, charcoal, paint, etc. I'm not sure what my professor thought of this, but I got an A on all my projects, so he must not have looked down on it too much.

Q: If you could inhabit a cartoon world (with the option to return at any point), which cartoon world would it be?
A: I really liked that "Dungeons and Dragons" cartoon growing up. I just loved the idea of getting on a carnival ride, and ending up in another world! Plus, it ties into my undying fantasy of being a superhero/warrior of some type. My weapon of choice would either be wizard-like powers, or a huge samurai sword. I also wouldn't mind hanging out with the Muppet Babies for a few days.

Q: If you won a contest that gave you the right to remove one television personality from the air, who would you select?
A: I believe I've expressed my intense distaste for Jennifer Love Hewitt on this blog before. And my piercing hatred for her remains undimmed.

SO here's where it becomes EXTRA fun! If you would like me to interview you on your blog, simply leave a comment containing the words, "Interview Me!", and I will send you a set of five questions to answer on your own blog. Have a lovely week everyone!

    Ah, yes. I see...

    I adore those answers, Mips. Thanks for playing! I can't believe I'd forgotten the JLH hatred. I wouldn't have wasted a question on that! And I confess that I'd forgotten the roller coaster thing to the D & D cartoon. Nice recall!

    Hey Freaking Flip Flopper, interviw me. I can just see you hanging out with the Muppet Babies for a few days. I'm sure it would be a mutually educational experience. Perhaps you and Kermit would become the Dynamic Duo.
