Answers to Sissy's Interview

Without further wait... the answers to my five interview questions for my very funny blogdaughter Sissy of And What Next...

1) Was the Spatula in the Oven your single worst cooking disaster and if not, what was?

I would say the Spatula in the Oven is close. I remember when I was about 9, I wanted Macaroni & Cheese and my mom was gone. My dad doesn't even know where the kitchen is. So I put water in a pot..........and put it in the microwave! Yes, I blew up the microwave!

2) What do you want to be when you grow up?

God, I ask myself this everyday! I have absolutely no clue! From age 11 until 19, I wanted to be and studied to be a Music Teacher and/or a conductor. Now I'm kind of tossed up with the "wanting to make a difference" bug and the desire to be successful. I kind of like not knowing what I'm going to be, there are no limits and I can't let myself down if I don't meet a specifc life long career goal. But if anyone has any ideas...I'm open to suggestions!

3) Ok, there had to be one for the guys... thong, bikini, granny or shorty shorts?

Thong all the way....I can't do the rest of those!

4) If Kiki were reincarnated from a past life, who would she be?

I would have to say a mix of two other dogs (I know, oh so original!). I had a dog, Misty, when I was 3, that actually saved me from being attacked by another dog. Very protective. Then, I got another dog, Chesty (after Chesty Puller), when I was 5 and we were in Okinawa, Japan. He was the chow/shephard mutt in the corner and my mom went and got her for me one day when I was home sick puking my guts out. 5 years later, when my parents divorced, they gave my dog to my uncle in Missouri (we were in Georgia) and it ripped my heart out! Not only was my dad leaving, so was my dog! I always wanted him to come back....and he did, as a girl chihuahua 11 years later...go figure!

(SideNote from Bou: OF COURSE it is a GIVEN that a Marine Corps family have a dog named Chesty! That cracked me up!)

5) Who do you admire most and why... as in... who is your personal hero?

This question is just as hard as #2. I don't have one person inparticular...I guess my standards are pretty high. And I think there is a little bit of a difference between who I admire and who my personal hero is.

I would have to say my personal hero is my 11th Grade High School English teacher. She actually has literally saved my life twice. And she's someone I know that is always there if I need matter what, still to this day, it's unconditional.

As for people I admire, I tend to admire strong, independent, real women that make a difference in my life - intentionally or unintentionally. I've been lucky enough to run into a couple.

And there you have it! Tomorrow, I post my questions for Tammi!

You are not! I LOVED your answers! Trust me, love, there is not another person I know who has exploded a microwave with a pot of water... ;-)

You're answers didn't suck. They where honest, if she wanted dishonest answers, she would have just made them up.

in example, for number 2:

When I grow up, I want to be a professional mattress tester. I figure that spending 8 hours sleeping on a mattress to make sure it is comfortable would give me much more time to do some power drinking and trolling for guys. Plus if during that exra time I did find a guy I liked, the company would appreciate me bringing him to work to give the mattress some extra testing!

Hey what you say about us Mattress people (at least for another week!) hint hint.

Tammi, there's a T in my handle, I love drunk bloggers! (just kidding, I think.) Any who, I think you missed the point of that comment. And what are you hinting at, and is it going to be bad? Are you the new person moving in next door???
