An Interview with……

By April 29, 2008June 10th, 2015No Comments

There’s a fun feature on Facebook called 10 Second Interview. I don’t spend much time there but I did answer some of the questions and thought I would share the repsonses here:

What was the last e-mail you received?

One from my coach that said “are you smoking crack?” because I told her I was going swimming at 9 pm.

Would you rather meet your future inlaws naked or in bondage gear?

First of all I already have in-laws, one set is enough thank you, and second of all I don’t even like seeing them in their pajamas so I’ll skip the bondage gear.

Hello, Hi or Hey?

Hola. Tim Hola if we’re talking triathlon.

What’s the most embarrassing song in your collection?

Hannah Montana. I have no shame.

Luke Skywalker or Han Solo?

Screw that, I’m taking the wookie. Something that tall is bound to come in handy when you stand at 5’2″.

What was your first live concert?

Faith No More! You want it all but you can’t have it….

What’s your earliest memory?

Being in a phone booth in a bar with my mom. That sounds a lot worse than it probably was.

What is the most useful class you’ve taken?

Typing in high school. How smart was that?

When do you normally go to bed?

Right about when I fall asleep.

My comfort food is…

A gallon of Moose Tracks or a jar of peanut butter (thanks Jenni Keil!)

Take whatever you want. Just don’t take my…

Dog, laptop, piano, coffee maker, or husband. Wait, how much will you give me for the husband?

Have you ever fallen asleep at work?

Yes. But in my defense I do work at home.

I believe in…

The united state of caffeination – free beans and good buzz for everyone.

For the talent portion of the competition, I will…

Peform my next magic trick – becoming very small.

A recent poll shows a fifth of Americans cannot locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?

There hasn’t been a tv show that has shown them.

Naked food fights are..

Not very hygenic.

What was (or will be) your wedding song?

Fly Me To The Moon; we searched for months for the right song and both decided we didn’t really care and so we picked the only man qualified to sing at a wedding – Sinatra, plus it kept all the Brooklyn Italians happy and that’s always a good thing.

You can see my place, but don’t look in my…

Husband’s bathroom. I once found a bag of chips and a bottle of beer in there.

What would you do if you could be invisible?

Steal coffee.

Which is worse? Nails on a chalkboard or lemon juice on a cut?

How about doing Ironman?

What flavor Jello are you?

Puddin’ Snack

How many times a day do you brush your teeth?

So many my brother once said “you are going to brush all of the enamel off your teeth.”

What is your current ring tone?

Drum taps. Only a former marching band dork would choose that.

What celebrity do you wish would just go away?

Madonna. PLEASE stop making music. PLEASE!

When I want to be alone, I…

Generally just leave.

Would you rather own a dog named Growler or a parrot named Captain?

Or a chihuahua named Boss?

What’s the worst that could happen?

Probably not the best.

What would your super hero name be?

Small Wonder able to drink tall coffee cups in one single gulp.

Where was sexy before Justin Timberlake brought it back?

Under my bed. In hiding.

Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate?

Peanut butter and chocolate. What do you think of that?

What was the best advice you ever received?

“Keep your drawers on.” – Mom

SUV, compact, or sports car?

Did you know gas was $4 a gallon? Now who’s the smart one.

My first word was probably…


Voldemort or Sauron?

Is this a quiz to get into Mensa? If so, I’m out.

What’s your favorite pizza topping?

I am not friends with pizza. OH HUSH UP.

When I was little, I used to believe that…

Clowns were evil (still do).

One in the hand is worth two in the…

Isn’t this part of an Ozzy Osbourne song? Ask him.

Which sport is the best to watch

Pro Bull Riding. GIDDY UP.

What music should they play at your funeral? (example: Get On Up)

Just please bring the P-Funk. And make George Clinton give my eulogy (“she has returned to the mothership connection”)

What’s the first frivolous thing you’ll buy when you’re rich and famous?

I said “An SRM.” My husband said “A bowling alley.” Remind me why I married him again?

No matter how desperate I was for a guy/girl, I’d never…

Date my husband’s dad.

Why does paper beat rock?

Their domestic issues are none of my business.

Thongs are

Very bad for your feet.

If you discovered a planet, what would you call it?


Tom Cruise: crazy town, or misunderstood?

Uh, he’s had trouble for awhile. Remember Risky Business? The whole underwear bit?

What will JT bring back next now that sexy is officially back?

My money since he bought it from me.

A more appropriate first name for me would be…


If your life were a movie, what would be the last line?


I’d be nothing if it weren’t for…

Something? This is a bit too existential for me.

What are three ways you’re making the world a better place?

Vowing never to drive without coffee before 9 am. That’s just one way but it would count for three.

What was your worst fashion mistake?

Spending most of my days lately in pajama pants. Dressing my dog in Juicy Couture. Allowing my friend Leslie to give my husband a Battle Bots t-shirt (he wears it every Saturday).

What is/was your imaginary friend’s name?

Lassie. No relation to movie dog.

If I woke up as the opposite sex, I’d…

Probably sniff my armpit. Just in case.

There’s more to life than…

Ice cream, puppies and coffee. Maybe not.

The last time I actually cooked something, I made…

A mess.

I’d be mortified if someone caught me…

Decaffeinated after 10 am. I’m apologizing in advance.

I grew up…

On a cement stoop in Brooklyn listening to my grandma and her Italian lady friends telling stories about freak accidents and food.

There you have it. 10 seconds – if you read really fast – with me.

*yes those are bibs. and compression socks.
