An interview with Moi

I saw this at the Diaper Diaries and asked Jill to interview me, cause I just loove to talk about myself. Here’s the deal, if you want to be next!

Leave me a comment saying “Interview me.” I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions. If you don’t have a valid email address on your blog, please provide one. You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

1. You share a blog with your cousin Emily. Give us some dirt. What’s one thing about her your readers don’t know that she wouldn’t hate you for sharing.
Well I have two things, since you asked, and inquiring minds DO want to know about Emily. One thing is that she seems to hit deer with her car a lot. Not on purpose, mind you. But if you’re a deer in southwestern Ohio, you might want to watch out for Emily and her silver Camry. The other dish I have on Emily is that she doesn’t use salad dressing. How gross is that? Every time we go out to eat and she gets a salad I just hope and pray that this time she’ll order dressing, but she never does. So sad.

2. The Big 3-0. You recently had a birthday. Share some “old lady” wisdom with us. What is one way your 30s are better than your 20s.
Well you know, I’ve had about three weeks of my 30s so I am pretty much a 30s veteran, and I am a LOT wiser. So that’s the first thing. I mean you turn 30 and it’s like the flippin’ Wisdom Fairy just casts a spell on you overnight. It’s great, really. Ummm, no seriously, so far what’s better about my 30s is that I have a better relationship with God than I ever did in my 20s. I am much more dependent on Him now. I let Him take care of stuff, and I know He’s got my back. I never quite got that until recently.

3. First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes…you know the rest. You married your high school sweethart. What was your first (6th grade) impression of him? Were you right or wrong.
My first impression was that he was really nice and had poofy hair. I was right about both! (He no longer has the hair but is still very nice!)

4. You have a vast history of musical theatre and say you love to sing :). If you could be in any Broadway musical what would it be and who would you be.
Ooh GOOD ONE! Probably I’d be Dolly in “Hello Dolly.” ‘Cause she’s sassy and got to wear great hats!!

5. So Jen-Jen, Jenny, Jennifer, whatever. You have lamented the fact that your name is too common if you were born in the late 70s. I feel your pain, there were 3 Jill’s in my sorority pledge class. Anyway, if you could change your name, what would you change it to?
Man, Jill, you are like Barbra Walters or something! That’s a HARD one! I think I’d just change everyone else’s name so I could be the only Jenny. But if I had to change it…I would have two names, like Mary Claire or something like that.

  1. I love your answers!! And you mentioned my blog 2 days in a row, you really are a stalker 🙂

    I once knew a guy who ate his salad without any dressing too. I pretty much like my salad prepared as dressing with a side of greens.

  2. Just found you through your adorable cre8buzz profile and this post is the perfect introduction! I love these interviews.

    I adore your answer about your relationship with God changing. Over the last couple of years, I have learned to trust Him and just let go. Let go, let God, right? Cheesy, but true. It has freed me up so much.

    The fact that you are willing to write about your faith is refreshing. I’ve written about being a new Catholic a few times and have always received a surprising response, mostly from non-Catholics who find they are able to relate to the whole “Mary” thing for the first time. But then I lose my nerve and don’t write about it anymore.

    Wow, did you invite me to blog in your blog? No? Oops.

    I am so up for an interview. Probably not fair because I just found you, but you are invited to come visit me and play along if you’d like. Now back to poking around.

  3. btw again!

    I was born in ’76, I was supposed to be named Jennifer Amy. On the night I was born, however, there were four other girls born…each named Jennifer or Amy. So I became Piper.
