the interview game

interview game: the rules
1. You do not talk about interview game.
No, wait. Let me start again.

1. Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2. I will respond; I’ll ask you five questions.
3. You’ll update your website with my five questions, and your five answers.
4. You’ll include this explanation.
5. You’ll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.

My questions came from Jen over at MonkeyKnits, here goes –
1. If you could chose one of the following to have (at no cost to you) for one year, which would you choose: gourmet chef, chauffeur, housekeeper, nanny, masseuse or personal secretary?
No question, a housekeeper! As witnessed in my previous posts concerning my mom coming to visit, my housekeeping skills could use some help. It is the last thing I make time for and probably one of my biggest sources of stress.

2. Boxers or briefs: which are sexier on a guy?
I’m gonna go for a compromise on this one and say boxer briefs 🙂

3. What is your favorite indulgence?
Sleeping in or hanging around all day in my pajamas. Some weekends you just really need to slow down and that’s when pj days come in. I feel so lazy when I do it, but it gives me so much energy later.

4. If you could trade places with someone for one week (they would live your life, you would live theirs), who would it be and why?
This is a tough one so I’m going to “cheat” and give two answers. First of all, on a personal note, I’d like to switch places with my husband. I just think it would be neat to see what he experiences on a daily basis at work and allow him to see what I face, as well. On a more “global” scale, I’d like to switch places with Barbara Walters. No big philosophical reason for this, but my childhood dream was to be the next “Barbara Walters”. I let that fall to the wayside when I worked at a television station for the summer and discovered that the schedule would not really be conducive to my having a family someday and that some of the news covered is really depressing. So, I think it would be fun to live her life for a week and see how things are for her and interview some of the people she gets to interview.

5. As a knitter, what is your biggest frustration? What is your biggest accomplishment?
Biggest frustration – frogging, what else? Really, though, it’s when I make a really stupid mistake and don’t realize it until several rows later. Biggest accomplishment – figuring out the Karabella pattern! It may not seem like much to people who have seen the pattern, but it was kind of hard to get at first, and I finally think I have it figured out. Also, my biggest finished project was my boatneck shell (see chicknits) because that was the first thing I made that actually had to “fit”.

Keep the fun going, be the next person to answer five questions! The first five people to tell me they wanna play will receive the honor of answering questions from me! I’ll email them to you then you can post them to your site. I’m excited to see your answers!

in honor of the question creator
Just had to post pics of Jen’s swatches finally blocking! Yippee! I was only supposed to send them to her 18 days ago! They’ll be in the mail as soon as they’re dry!
