The Official Interview Game

I volunteered for this game at Sarah's who found it at Leggy's .

Anyone want to play? See the rules after my answers.

1. Tell about a time you were really embarrassed by something.

I was arrested. Sheesh, I am embarrassed just writing this. I was handcuffed and led out to a car right in front of my neighbors and everything. This was not a good time in my life. It all turned out okay for me, mostly...I was just kind of caught in a bad situation...but it really sucked (and still does) for someone I care about. I am and always have been such a goody-two-shoes that this is the kind of thing that my mind just blocks out. This all happened 10 years ago and it still bothers me/embarrasses me to think about.

Can't believe I am even writing about this.

2. What do you do when you need to nurture yourself and how often do you give yourself permission?

This is actually quite hard for me to come up with. I probably need to do something just for me more often. The best I can come up with right now is to take a nice hot bubble bath with lots of smelly stuff in the water. Ahhh...I feel better just thinking about it. Haven't done this in a while, though.

After this crappy week, maybe it is time.

3. Which superhero do you like the best and why?

I read a lot of comics when I was a kid and liked Spiderman, Thor, and the Fantastic Four probably the best. Of those three I would guess probably Spiderman. He was more human. Not like Superman who seemed to have few problems (okay...there was the whole Lois Lane and the kryptonite thing, but that seemed really secondary). Spiderman, though, was this geeky kid (like me) who liked science (like me) and had lots of problems with relationships (like me).

4. Are you there yet?

No. To be really sappy and all, life is a journey, not a destination so I don't think I will ever be there. Sometimes I wish I were travelling faster, though. This week really sucked.

5. Tell about a goal you set for yourself that you have acheived.

I would probably say that I got my college diploma. I am the first in my immediate family to actually get a four year degree (not including my SIL, but she doesn't count...she's not really related tho' I love her like a sister...). It took me a while. I would go to school for a while, then drop out, and dink around a bit; then change majors, go for a while, drop out, dink around for a bit...repeat. I think I nearly set a record (took me almost 20 years), but I finally have that paper calling me a college grad-oooo-ate.

I loved your answers! Thanks for playing.

I also loved Spiderman the best for many of the same reasons as you.

Last week must have just sucked all around! I hope this week is better for you and me both.
