Interview – Part 3

Do you pick your nose?

I am definitely not a rube So that is a resounding no

Do you bite your fingernails? Do you have any bad habits?

Bad habits, yes probably more than I can count. I don’t bite my fingernails or anything like that. I have a lot of quirky habits. Eating at the same time, same place, same food type stuff. I workout at the same time, get up at the same time, go to sleep at the same time. I put my clothes away in a specific way. Everything has to go in their place or I go bonkers.

What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory is about apple pie.

Do you hold the door open for the person behind you or do you let it go and slam in their face?

I’d like to say I wasn’t rude, but if I were in the AU building and Venatori were following me I’d definitely let it slam in their face.

Do you take chicken soup to your elderly neighbor when they are sick?

My neighbor’s don’t get sick so no and I don’t think I would even if they did.

If you had a dog, would you pick up your dog’s poop when you go for a walk or sneak off and hope no one saw your dog poop on their lawn?

Sneak off. I’m an ass like that.

If your boss asked you to cheat on your invoice and bill your client for extra hours, would you do it?


On Monday morning, are you excited to go to work, or are you sad?

I love my work but I don’t have a 9 to 5 job. I get one day off a year – my birthday any other time I work when I have to work.

If you could go back in time for one day, where would you go?

I’m not even going to explain – go read. This is what I’d do.

You can cure one disease. Which one would you cure?

Pick any cancer in little kids.

Do you honk at the car in front of you if they didn’t see the light turn green?

I don’t drive. I hate traffic so probably.

Do you exercise or are you a coach potato?

Does anyone want to answer this for me? Yes, I exercise. And the idea of just sitting around doing nothing would drive me bonkers too.

If a Boy Scout comes to your door selling popcorn, do you hide in the kitchen or buy popcorn?

I like popcorn!

Have you ever served in the military?


What is your greatest fear?

Do you want my psychoanalyzed answer or the one I’d tell you? Both?

My deepest fear is not feeling safe. I’ve never felt safe in my life. Actually I guess I’d tell you that too. I’m looking to be safe.

Would you like me to get you a glass of water? Or would you rather have soda? Wine? Whiskey?

Water with lemon please. I could have a beer. But I prefer water, even when I’m out drinking.
