Finally, something to do! Now to think of questions...
May. 8th, 2007 02:59 pm (UTC)
YES. That's why I wanted to be interviewed. Heh.
May. 8th, 2007 03:42 pm (UTC)
I wrote this and then I lost it. So now I'm writing again.

1. You're stuck on a desert island. You can't leave, and you're with one person. They can't help you leave. Describe who you would want to be stuck with.

2. You're on America's Got Talent. What's your [PG] talent?

3. Would you rather be blind or deaf?

4. What one thing could you change in your life to have gone down a completely different path? Would you choose to do it?

5. What, if anything, makes you feel the most like a "grown-up" (having a full time job is not a quality answer, yo)?

Re: questions
1. Do I have all the food I need? If not, then I'd want a really tall person with a lot of meat on their bones... you know... because I'd get the most food out of them. If I have all the food I need, then I'd way... Well, I know who I'd want. But, I shouldn't want it to be them...

2. I like how you specified "PG" talent... I dunno. I have a lot of talents... I don't know how many would show up well on TV. Maybe singing. But probably not, since I suck at singing now (mind you, that doesn't stop me from doing it). Yeah, I'd probably go with my amazing ability to belt out a song, not caring how stupid I look. That's gotta be a talent, right?

3. Personally, I'd rather be blind. Because hearing is SO important to me. I don't think I could be very happy in a world with no melodies... BUT... To live in this world, I'd go with being deaf. I think it would probably be easier for me to function deaf than blind, but less of an enjoyable existence.

4. I could have taken my final exams in Spring Term 2002. Everything would have changed then. Or, I could have stuck with the original plan and attended St. Leo University...instead of changing my mind at the last minute and going to FSU. Honestly, looking back over my life since high school, I could have done many things differently and my place in the world would be very different. Would I go back and do that if I could? No. It's almost funny that I feel so much conviction behind that answer. But I really wouldn't. I wouldn't be who I am today were it not for the experiences I've had. And, frankly, I like me. Not only that, but the things I've seen and lived have allowed for me to help people along the way, and I have to believe that was all for a reason.

5. Many things about my life are GLARING reminders that I'm a grown-up. Oddly enough, my answer to the previous question, alone, is enough to make me feel like a "grown-up".

What the hell. Bossman's out. Bosslady's out. Hit me.

1) If you could change one (non-physical) thing about yourself, what would it be? Why?

2) What's your favorite funny quote? favorite inspirational quote?

3) You and Jeff have been dating for ...ever. Any plans for a relationship of a more... permanent... nature?

4) What time period (other than now) would you like to live in?

5) What's your favorite outfit?
May. 9th, 2007 06:41 pm (UTC)
1) My selfish nature. I drive myself crazy, thinking of all the things that I want and need, and don't remember stupid things like my boyfriend's favorite color. How bad is that?!

2) I can't think of a great funny quote off the top of my head, but I a good inspirational one. It was said by either Eleanor Roosevelt or Nancy Reagan. Can't remember which, but I know it's one of them. "A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water."

3) The "for...ever" is nine years this weekend. And yes, there's plans for marriage in the future. He just has to do the actual asking first. We have a lot of things planned though. Living in Jersey, having a small beagle-ish dog named Rocktavius, and having a couple kids. (Our first boy's name will be Joseph John. First girl is Samantha Joy. We'll probably be naming all our kids family names. I plan on making him let me name the second boy Matthew Edward, most likely. Joseph John is his grandfather and father respectively. Matthew Edward are my dad and grandpop. And Samantha's become a bit of a family joke. The last three generations in my line (me, Mom and Grandmom) were all supposed to be Samanthas. None of us are. And Joy's his mom's name. Put 'em together and it's the perfect name for a little girl, I think.

4) I would have loved to live in either the 20's or the 50's/60's. The fashion of those times were just awesome. Particularly the 20s. Flapper dresses and guys in fedoras. Oh yes.

5) Hmm. Favorite outfit. Honestly, a good pair of nicely fitting jeans (that actually fit on my ass and don't have that whole gap thing going on) and a fun tee shirt is my favorite thing to wear. I don't get to do it much, though.
May. 8th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
Sure, why not.
May. 8th, 2007 06:17 pm (UTC)
1) You were raised and California, and moved back there after finishing college. Do you plan to stay?

2) What's a typical day in the life of Gena? How many huge noses do you see?

3) You die, or one random person dies. Choose. How about ten random people? A hundred? What's the cut-off?

4) Hypothetically, if you were trying to choose between a lower insurance premium with a higher deductible or a higher premium with a lower deductible, which would you choose? Assume you're not on a fault line. Also assume that the house is in Tallahassee... And that it's the house that I'm currently buying.

5) If you could go back and talk to yourself at ten years old, what would you tell yourself (spare me the 'lottery numbers' answer)? What would your ten year old self think of you?

1. I certainly do not plan to stay in Los Angeles. Leaving for four years and going somewhere so different like Tallahassee made me despise many things about L.A. that I already didn't like so much. However, there are so many things about big cities and Los Angeles in particular that I really do enjoy. But I never wanted to stay here forever. I think I'll end up in Washington or Oregon...or somewhere else in California nowhere near Los Angeles.

2. I wake up at 7, take a shower, take a half hour to drive 8 miles to work, check the voicemail and my email. My boss gets in an hour after me and I try to be right in the middle of something important when she comes in so I look productive and more importantly, right, so she can't find something to get pissy about. I spend the majority of the day talking to 13 year old kids about bar/bat mitzvah project ideas, discussing genocide and humanitarian aid projects with churches/synagogues/individuals around the country, take solar cookers/potholders/brochures/posters/wristbands to FedEx and USPS for various events, school fundraising projects... I meet with Rabbis and our advisory council reps and consultants about divestment, awards events, international projects. Sometime around 4 I finally get around to eating something, usually microwave popcorn. I leave work after working at least an hour of overtime and get home, where I attempt to sort through stuff to pack for moving for about 10 minutes. Eat, check the various websites on my daily list, watch HGTV and Food Network till I can't keep my eyes open, but then force myself to read for pleasure for just a little while, and go to sleep on the phone with Eric.

3. One random person. Ten random people. One Hundred random people. There's definitely a cut off point somewhere though. I think that so many people die every day anyway, whether from disease, old age, crime, accident, that people would still need to think all these random people dying from me living wasn't unusual. I think I have logic worked out for this that makes sense, but I've tried typing it many times and can't figure out how to explain.

4. If you don't have a lot of money, you're better with a higher deductible and a lower premium, because if you're lucky, you'll never have to pay the deductible even. There's no earthquakes there, hurricanes don't come through Tallahassee very often. You're going to have to pay the premium every year, you know that's money you're putting out, so might as well put out less money.

5. I'd tell myself not to get so freaked out about my middle school report cards, the postman won't let me pay him off to delay delivering my report cards, and I really won't get in THAT much trouble. I'd tell myself that it really isn't going to be too yucky tasting steak or a hamburger [I STILL haven't!], but if I did now, people wouldn't make fun of me in college. I'd tell myself to try and figure out the concept of makeup a little bit more before high school. I'd congratulate myself on commitment to helping others and realizing at such a young age for realizing that life isn't just about mone it's about doing what makes you feel fulfilled while still being able to pay the bills and have a little fun. I'd make my mom pull me out of soccer earlier and into swimming earlier. And I'd tell myself that it really is a good thing to have parents who are so involved. My ten year old self would be amazed that I got a college degree in what I was interested in at 10, weirded out that my hair turned brown [!!], frustrated that I still live in the valley, and impressed with the boy.
