I was interviewed by the lovely Lilu the other week, so, just in case I haven’t shared enough with you all, here are a few more tidbits for your reading pleasure. Rules are below if you’d like to participate.
1. What are the three most important things you look for in a partner? The three things you absolutely can’t abide?
Hmm…I guess the three most important things would be a sense of humor, kind eyes (I know it sounds cheesy, but I don’t know a better way to explain it), and a sense of adventure/try-anything-once attitude. In any case, I love a guy that can make me laugh, and someone who can bring me just a little more out of my shell.
Deal-breakers, though, would be someone who takes himself too seriously (obviously, given the sense of humor requirement), who’s constantly condescending, and who needs constant attention. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE attention (hey! look at my blog!), but I also appreciate some “me” time.
2. Nora Jones wants to know what really “Turns You On”. What does a guy do that really makes your kitten purr? Wait… that sounded more sexual than I meant it to… oh well.
More sexual than you meant it to? Is there a non-sexual answer to this question?
Well, avoiding most of the truly obvious answers, a massage really makes “my kitten purr.” Especially when he goes at it hard and deep and slow and thorough (hey, I like what I like).
Plus, a massage like that is almost always just Act I.
3. Admit the three songs that you are most ashamed of being in LURVE with. You can defer to your “Most Played” on your iPod, if that will help you be more honest.
If we’re being honest (and at this point, why the hell not?) I have to admit that I listen to unhealthy amounts of pop music. My brain is probably rotting…but at least it’s going to a catchy beat. That said, I’m ashamed of loving…
1) Britney Spears – Right now it’s a tie between “Womanizer” and “Circus”
2) Hilary Duff – “Anywhere But Here” (It’s from the soundtrack for “A Cinderella Story” – another shameful love.)
3) Nelly Furtado – “Promiscuous”
Please still be my friend.
4. If you had all the money you ever wanted but you had to live in one town/city for the rest of your life, where would it be? What if you were dirt poor but you still had to choose- where would it be?
With all the money I ever wanted, I’d probably still live in D.C., but travel like crazy. There are so many places I still want to see. I do like D.C. as a home base, though.
If I were dirt poor (which isn’t so far off track right now…), I might still choose D.C., but Philadelphia would be in the running. There’s something comforting about being able to mooch off close to Mom and Dad if I had zero means.
5. You’re 18 and back in high school, with a BOY in your room that you LIKE like. Would you rather your mom or your dad walked in on you?
It’s probably much more likely that I’d get walked in on by my brother – but that’s my own fault for “hanging out” in our downstairs rec room.
In this case, though, I’d MUCH rather have mom walk in. It would absolutely be awkward for a little bit, but by the time I was 18, she and I had already had several, fairly honest, “relationship” talks. She probably would have just mocked me for being an idiot and not locking the door.
All right, kids – that’s it from me!
If you’d like to play along, just follow these instructions:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me,” with your email address.
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions. Be sure you link back to the original post.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
