As is my daily habit, I was over at Evyl’s place the other day and I read an interview he had with the lovely Anja. There is no other duo who can do justice to an interview like these two. They are brilliant and funny and bawdy and well, just get over there, if you haven’t already!
I was so impressed I immediately asked Evyl for an interview as well. And then I began to get scared. What was I thinking??!
He was kind…..sort of.
The rules for anyone else who wants to be interviewed:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.” (you don’t have to be interviewed if you want to comment)
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. (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.
Now for the interview:
Evyl: Meatloaf says that he would do anything for love but he won’t do that. Whatever that is. What would you not do for love?
Me: I would not sacrifice my children or grandchildren. In 1973 I was lost, broke, and confused and ended up placing my two sons up for adoption. I felt it was the best thing I could do for them. So I know what it feels like to lose someone so precious to you that you literally wish you were dead.
Evyl: Andrew Zimmern took ill from a bad batch of stinky tofu and the producers have asked you to host an episode of ‘Bizarre Foods’. What do you eat to freak out the audience?
Me-: Ahh, I watch that show! I always ask myself this very question! Hmmm, well, I do eat some weird stuff on a regular basis. Most people think it’s gross but I love cottage cheese and salsa- together! And I have been known to make a liverwurst and onion sandwich on toasted English muffin! Yum!
BUT the XXX-rated version of this question would read “What would you swallow?” heehee
Evyl: As a past Freak of the Week winner, the world wants to know. What is the freakiest thing that you have ever done?
Me: A TWO-Time Winner!! Let us not forget that fact. I am damned proud of it!
The freakiest thing perhaps is that I went to school to learn how to artificially inseminate cattle. I was the only woman in a class of twelve good ol’ farm boys and I am so short they had to get me a crate to stand on! I graduated with honors and went on to impregnate many lovely bovine ladies. I am the baby daddy!
Evyl: After a night spent drinking too much wine at a friends house, you wake up naked on the couch. You can’t remember a thing. Do you ask your friend what happened? If it’s male? If it’s female?
Me: Oh, Gawd! YES! I want details! At my age the memory is shot to hell anyway! I live for the details! Male, female, animal, vegetable, whatever! Make stuff up if ya have to! It’s stuff like this I can look back on and grin about with a certain pride when I’m 105 and living in a nursing home. Think how popular I’ll be with all “the boys” there!
Evyl: What one event that you have witnessed has left you with the biggest feeling of awe? And you can’t take the easy way out and say the birth of a child even if that’s true.
Me: Standing at the top of Mount Marcy in the Adirondacks two years ago. That’s the highest peak in the Adirondacks . Having been afraid of heights all my life this was a major accomplishment for me. The view was utterly amazing! On that day I hiked over 15 miles and I have never felt so insignificant as I did when I finally reached the summit and looked out over the landscape. It was a natural high!!
(And yes, the birth of my children superceded that by a mile!)
