Lynette is a fellow midwesterner who is completely charming and original. I always know I can go to her blog for a chuckle. I also like the fact that she entered my contest right away. Have you entered yet? Anyway, she has graciously agreed to be interviewed by me today. Go here to see that. And she is interviewing me today here on my little blog:
1) If you could choose 1 person (celebrity or other) to spend the day with who would it be and why? And don't feel obligated to pick me even thought I know it's tough not to. LOL!
Good Question. I think I would spend the day with President Obama. I have some things I would like him to do and I can be very convincing in person (if not on my blog). What would I ask him?
First, I would ask him to make me the United States first Blogger Laureat. And is it okay if I mention to all of you that on Inauguration Day of all the lovely inauguration speakers and prayers and speech givers the only one I didn't get was the poet? What the hell was she talking about? She's no Billy Collins is she? It's not okay for me to mention that? No? I'll shut up.
2) I've been reading your blog for awhile now and have seen your hair go from one extreme to another (in a good way of course). What has been your favorite hairstyle and how long does it take you to fix it in a typical morning?
What the heck is a typical morning Lynette? I use every ounce of energy I have to try and get me and the princesses "presentable" by the time we leave the house in the morning. Sometimes that means I get a shower. Sometimes it does not.
I use exactly how much time I have that particular morning...anywhere from roughly .23 seconds to a minute and a half. I brush it. I bunch it and I spray it. Sometimes it looks good (think Laura Bush) and sometimes it looks bad (think Margaret Thatcher on crack).
Ummm...as for my favorite hairstyle. It was in the eighties when "mall hair" was at it's height (literally). I had some seriously big hair. I am not proud of the ozone I was responsible for destroying with the aqua-net I used but I LOVED that hair.
3) What has been your most memorable birthday that you have celebrated (without tears)?
Well, it wasn't even my birthday. The most memorable was when Lola turned forty and we flew to Las Vegas. We met Elton John. We did the spa. We wore bikinis. We had fun right up until Lola got deathly ill....and I ended up pushing her through the airport on the way home in a wheelchair. We keep threatening to do a "re-do". That was the most memorable.
4) Can you name one thing that you've always aspired to do in life, but haven't felt the courage to do it? And if so, do you see yourself ever following through with it?
When I was little i told everyone that I was going to be President of the United States. I really thought I would like that job. I still think I would like that job. Unfortunately, I could never put up with the scrutiny that is required for that job....not just for me but my entire family. Too difficult. I may run for President of the Internet, would that count?
5) Do you currently have any pets? What was your favorite pet growing up? Would your daughters each like their own pair of dwarf hamsters? We've got 6 of them. No, I'm not kidding!
Wow. Such a generous offer. Actually, I am all full up with pets.
Bibble the Small - Shih Tzu
Cinderella the Loud - Persian white
Flash the Quick - Persian black
No more pets Lynette. Thank you anyway. My favorite pet of all time was a cat named Oscar. He was a cute black domestic short hair with a lot of personality. I loved that cat. He loved me too. I still get a little choked up thinking about him...but not as choked up as I get when I think of you living with rodents.
Thanks for the Interview Lynette. We should do this every so often because it's fun and enlightening.
