The interview

When I first saw the 5 Question Interview on Angelika's blog I decided to make fun of the whole thing, and so asked for some questions. But, being the sneaky insomniac she is, she asked 5 brilliant questions and forced me to put some effort into answering them. Women...

So here is my first ever interview. You may want to bookmark this entry and read it again when I'm on Parkinson's. Or when I've got Parkinsons Disease. Whichever comes earlier.

1. If you could have a £5000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be and how long would it take you to spend the £5000?
That'll be $10,000 as the pound is kicking the dollars butt at the moment. In fact, it’s giving the dollar's butt a pounding!

Half the money would be spent in Waterstones Bookstore, half hiring a fleet of lorries to get the books home. As for time, drop me off and come back in a few months. I can never decide how to spend money in Waterstones; I never want to leave any of the books behind.

2. What song best describes you when you wake up in the morning?
Olsen Twins – Hugged by You (apparently they have had a single!)
Oasis - What’s the Story, Morning Glory

3. What place in the US would you most like to visit and why?
When I was 14 I toured L.A. with my school Choir. I couldn’t sing but it was the only way a geek like me could find friends.

As a treat, on one of our non theme-park days, the aunt of one the American families I was staying with took us to see a reservoir in construction, and we spent an hour staring at a hole in the ground. I imagine most of America outside the theme parks is like that and so have no desire to visit any of it.

I would however like to visit New York, New York to find out why the hell they named it twice, and also to go to Broadway so I can point out that the plays are better on the West End.

4. Who would you want to play you in a movie about your life? Early childhood, adolescence, and now since you're still a young whippersnapper.
I don’t do celebrity. In fact, unless they were carrying a sign with their name and films they’ve appeared in, I doubt I’d notice if a celebrity took me out to dinner. So I asked my boyfriend for help on this one

  • Childhood – The kid who played Elliot in ET
  • He's 36 now so he’d need some serious make-up effects
  • Adolescence - Zac Efron – Star of 'High School Musical'
  • So I’d look annoyingly American, act annoyingly American, and be in the annoyingly American school choir. Me to a T.
  • Now – Me!
  • I'm a good actor, providing I can use the George Clooney method. (Looks at the floor then looks back up at the camera squinting his eyes) See?
5. What's the most obnoxious/rude/sarcastic thing you've ever said to a person, and what happened after you said it?
I just don’t remember, there are too many of them. I was once told that I could only come to a party if I wasn’t too opinionated that night.

The most stupid conversation was with 3 kids, aged 15 or so, on their bikes by the river late one night. I walked past casting a glance in their direction.
‘What you looking at,’ one of them said.
Now this is a hard question to answer and indeed most people don’t bother. But I was in a quirky mood, and did something I normally avoid - I told the truth.
‘You.’ I said.
And that’s when it started raining rocks and loose gravel…

Go on then, interview me.
I'm bored and trying to find a reason not to finish my project report

This Eclectic Life said...

I liked your interview, but I'm afraid of what you would ask me. Those are feathers on my legs, not hair.

By the way, ALL of the U.S. doesn't look like L.A. Some of it is even worse.

ally said...

i really liked nyc when i lived there briefly.

however, old age and all, the l.a. weather is good for my bones. ;)

Angelika said...

The West Coast SUCKS!!!!! If that was the only opinion I had of America (in addition to movies & TV) I'd probably hate it too.

You have no taste in music...Olsen Twins?

Sue said...

Hahah those are fantastic answers and questions! Way to go dynamic duo :)

And uhh.. I have that Olsen Twins CD (I shit you not). I was given that as a joke and a copy of the Prince's black album.

The Freelance Cynic said...

GayGeek - Questions are on their way

Ecelectic - L.A. wasn't the bad part, just the big hole in the ground.

Ally - yes, and the earthquakes help keep you alert.

Angelika - The question was what song describes me in the morning. I had to lyric search to find it. However I'll prob download it now.

Sue - What a wonderful combination of music

The Rock Chick said...

Hey, anyone who comments on blogs without leaving death threats is okay with me!!!!! (I, too, am a blog traffic whore!)

Really liked your answers. Well, except for the Olsen Twins :) And if you ever come back to the US, Chicago is a great place to visit :)

Thanks for stopping by my site!

Webmiztris said...

I would have said, "by the looks of it, a bunch of shitheads!".

OK, maybe only in my head.

kids these days scare me. :)

The Freelance Cynic said...

Rock Chick - Well I like the musical Chicago

Skittles - looking forward to it :)

The Freelance Cynic said...
