I thought this was a really cool idea so I thought that I would try it. Mielikki from What Its Like To Be Me interviewed me.
1. How do you decide who your hump day hottie is going to be?
When I first started my Hump Day Hottie feature I wrote down a list of people that I thought were hot in one way or another. Many were good looking but I wanted it to be more than that. I started researching people and found that some that I thought were attractive weren’t the kind of people that I would want to feature. An example would be Jude Law. He is attractive but he is also a cheater and has had some legal trouble. I chose not to post him because his appeal faded the more I learned about him.
I haven’t used the entire list that I originally wrote but I rarely have to pull it out and use someone from it. Now I usually get inspiration from something I watch or hear or a conversation that I have.
I also take recommendations from people and sometimes ask them who they would like to see on there. That is how Johnny Depp was featured.
2.This one is a two part question: Who do you think is going to die in the next Harry Potter book, and who do you WANT to die in the next Harry Potter book?
This is a tough one because I don’t even want to think about who is going to die. We know that it must be someone close to Harry and my first instinct of course is that it might be Hermione or Ron. But then I think that J.K. Rowling wasn’t mainlining heroin while writing this book and that if she kills one of them off she might start an international incident. I think that it might be a 2nd string character like Neville Longbottom or maybe one of the Weasley parents.
Who do I want to die? There are a few people that come to mind right away. Of course Draco Malfoy being killed would be great. Professor Snapes getting blasted with a Avra Cadavera incantation would be pure justice since he killed Professor Dumbledore with the same one. Or the elimination of Harry’s hated cousin Dudley Dursley , preferably by a rogue bludger.
3. In your humble opinion, what is the best song in the world?
Wow! This is a tough one. I was in choir all throughout high school and my family is very musically inclined so there is a huge repertoire of music to choose from.
I will have to go with one that was dedicated to me by an old boyfriend (the one that is in Iraq right now).
I had stayed over at his place one night and the radio was on all night. He woke me up in the middle of the night and said to me “Every time I hear this song, I think of you.”
The song is “More Today Than Yesterday” by Spiral Staircase and some of the lyrics are:
I don't remember what day it was
I didn't notice what time it was
All I know is that I fell in love with you
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you
Every day's a new day in love with you
With each day comes a new way of loving you
Every time I kiss your lips my mind starts to wander
And if all my dreams come trueI'll be spending time with you
Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But, darling, not as much as tomorrow
It has been over 12 years and I still think of that song every day.
4. You are raising a son on your own, and it must not come easy. He will soon be in his teenage years. Do you think you are ready for it?
Raising my son on my own is difficult. It is rewarding beyond belief but anyone who tells you it is easy is lying.
The most difficult part of raising him alone is that I don’t have anyone to support me. By that I mean that I don’t have a backup. I don’t have anyone to discuss things with or to support my decisions or to call me on something when I am out of line. I have to be judge and jury. I am sure that sometimes I come across as unreasonable when it comes to dealing with D. I am very strict with him in some ways and very lax in others. I would like someone to be there to help in the areas that I am lax in.
I don’t think that anyone is ever ready for a child’s teenage years. D and I were discussing last night that this year will be his first double digit birthday. I think that as long as the lines of communication are still open that we will be fine.
D is a very loving and caring child but is very stubborn and headstrong. I just have to make sure to approach him in a loving way and everything should be fine.
5. What will you do if 'Mall hair' comes back in style?
My first instinct to the answer to this question was to say that I would shoot myself. Since I don’t own a gun that isn’t much of an option.
I never in a million years thought that skinny jeans or leg warmers would come back. Pretty soon it will be the stirrup pants and Hypercolor shirts.
If ‘Mall hair’ came back in style I would probably not be in style. It took a lot of work and a lot of hairspray. I prefer not to walk around with crunchy, flammable hair.
Ok, the rules:
1. If you want to be interviewed by me, (and I encourage perfect strangers to take me up on this, it will be fun) leave me a comment saying "Interview Me".
2. I will respond by asking you five questions of my choice.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to my questions.
4. You will include these rules, and offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
