Kate tagged me (and 6 other bloggers) on her Q&A Time post last week.
Here are her questions and my answers:
1. Why did you start blogging?
While writing on WEbook, I realized I wanted to house my unique perspective on life in one searchable data base. I decided a blog would be perfect.
What followed has been tons of FUN (with more than a few FUN followers) ~> cyber sharing is far more entertaining than writing in a journal.
2. If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and who would it be for?
Assuming cost was no object and time didn’t act as a barrier to attendance, I’d rent a cruise ship for a week’s cruise with gatherings for different groups ~ e.g., a pool party for grade school buddies, a pizza party for high school friends, a keg party for college classmates, a debating game for law school students and professors, cocktail parties for co-workers, buffet dinners with neighbors (from NJ, SC, NC, VA, MD, FL) . . . and a casino night with FREE drinks and chips for all my Blogging Buddies.
We’d enjoy non-stop on-board entertainment (with fabulous gifts and exciting prizes), water sports (windsurfing, parasailing, paddleboarding, sunbathing, wave running), and a stop at my private island.
What? It’s my fantasy. Nowhere in the question did it say I couldn’t have a private island.
I visualize how to (a) solve world hunger or (b) win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Both would be good.
4. At what age did you become an adult?
Age 26-27 ~> I graduated from law school, got married, started practicing law, bought a house, adopted two kittens, bought a car, etc.
A mortgage + real estate taxes screams “adult.”
5. What story does your family always tell about you?
They don’t talk about me, they’re too busy . . .
What have you heard?
6. Is a picture worth a thousand words? Explain.
In Words and Pictures, an artist and a writer spar to decide whether words trump pictures or vice versa.
They conclude, and I agree, that it depends on the subject matter being depicted.
Some abstract subjects require the subtle nuance of words.
When discussing more concrete subject matter, like FOOD, a picture is worth way more than a thousand words.
Especially since it’s rude to talk with your mouth full.
What a subtle and insidious way to put pressure on the addressee (in this case, ME!) to come up with an interesting topic for conversation rather than assuming responsibility for getting the conversation started by sharing some interesting insight into life, love, and the pursuit of happiness.
What’s up with that, Kate?
Aah . . . that’s better!
If you’re interested in playing along, answer these 7 questions on your own blog or in the comment thread below:
1. What’s been the “best day” of your life . . . so far?
2. When calories and cost are no object, what’s your favorite thing to eat?
3. What’s been your “greatest” accomplishment to date?
4. If you could have someone “on staff” for a week, at no cost to you, would you choose a personal chef, chauffeur, masseuse, hairdresser, pool boy or concubine?
5. What’s your favorite season? Where do you enjoy spending it?
6. If you could travel anywhere right now with a simple snap of your fingers, where would you go?
7. If you won a million $’s, what would you change in your day-to-day life?
Tag! You’re It!
