I've Got Answers

Maria at Immoral Matriarch decided to do a little 5 question thing for anyone wanting to be interviewed, and I love the questions she asked me. I kind of ran with it a little on some, but you can't expect someone like me to give all one sentence answers, can you?

1. What's your guilty pleasure? The Hills (link down below on the right if you want to be addicted to such silliness, too), yummy gimmicks like the McRib (most locations stopped these again a few months ago, but yesterday I found one Mc Donald's that still had it!), really obnoxious dashboard karaoke outsinging the radio, reality shows like Wife Swap or Joe Millionaire, Average Joe, My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance, Momma's Boys (currently) or Beauty and the Geek (which is actually quality TV, ahem) or generally trashy dating shows with eliminations. Except for The Bachelor, especially this season when I think it's utterly disgusting to involve a child, and I'll just be hushed now and leave that one at that.

2. If you could be an celeb, male or female, for a day, who would it be? There's not really any one particular celeb I'd truly want to be, but if I had to pick, off the top of my head I'd go with Drew Barrymore just because I like her, and I bet I have a cool day alternating between being kind of deep and having fun or something. If I could have the influence and money of any celeb for a day, though, I'd start the day with a giant latte and loving on some yippy little lap dog, then go be really helpful in a life changing way somehow to as many people as possible, and then I'd love to go on Jay Leno before having another latte before bed with the cats and my sweetie.

3. What foreign language would you like to speak fluently? Japanese. I've studied it long enough and lived there long enough that I kind of thought I would be fluent at this point. I am comfortable ordering beer, finding a toilet, doing a self-introduction, saying a few really disgustingly bad words that make me blush in English and doing a lame apology, so at least the basics are covered. After Japanese, then Spanish and a whole bunch more languages after that. I love languages.

4. Are men more trouble than they're worth? Not if you've picked the right one.

5. What's your dream job? Stay at home wife and mom extraordinaire. Seriously. I'd go all 1950's with that shit, and I think I'd be damn good at it, too, if only it was in the cards. Otherwise, if latte tasting and caffeine induced flitting about from here to there with nothing more than wings and a smile was a real job and included decent pay and health insurance, that'd be my next pick. It would need to be warm where I'm flitting, though.

Want to be part of it? Follow these instructions:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions - I'll need your email address! I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
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.


  1. Hi Maggie,
    I agree about the whole child on the Bachelor thing, especially in light of the fact that none of the couples seem to stay together except the fireman and Trisha?...
    Interview me, please.

  2. Oh Beth...Ryan and Trista! Now that is a fairytale. I can't stand the fact that they've put a child into the mix on this season's Bachelor because all it's going to do is get that child close to this woman and poof, gone.

    Maggie I never knew you spoke Japanese. That is too cool.

  3. Yeah, involving a child into a show like that is revolting and never should have been done.

    Interview me, please?

  4. I like Dreww Barrymore a lot - since she's grown up and gotten her act together. There for a while she was a typical Hollywood brat- but she has matured well and wisely and I admire her and her talent. And she ain't bad lookin', either.

    Interview me, please?

  5. How fun - great answers.

    Couldja find time between your hunts for McRib to interview me?

  6. Momma's boys is such a hoot.. It kills me to watch that mom who has a soul so disgusting.. I still cannot believe there are people in the world like here..

    and i had no idea about the bachelor..never watched that show..

    very very cool about the language!!

  7. Me, pick me! I'd totally groove on your probing, inquisitive questions. :) Great answers!

  8. oooh, McRibs! They don't sell them up here, but I had them once in Tennessee, I think it was. Delish!

    "Interview me." baby!

  9. Maggie,
    I too love reality TV....Interview me and then maybe I will have a reason to post a new blog! I am still around and smoke-free but so busy enjoying my vacation that I have not posted! My godbrother is also here from Belize and I have been visiting! How is Tulsa? I want to know more about your new place.

  10. I love how you would spend the day as a celebrity!!

  11. I loved Joe Millionaire when it was on. Have you seen the new one on ABC - "True Beauty"? OMG, it's such a train wreck!!!

  12. Interview me

    email addy in the mail ;-)

  13. Questions are on their way to most wanting to be interviewed unless I commented on your blog that I need your email address. I look forward to your answers!

    @Annie, yep, I'm watching True Beauty, and I ashamed to say I like it. :)

  14. Great answers all. I would have been up for this, but the idea that I might have to come up with questions for others scared me off. My brain hurts lately. The less thinking, the better. :-)
