They Say It's My Birthday
A Few More Questions

Questions To Answer

Before texting and social media there was email. Remember email? Remember those email questionaires that used to go around? The fun questions you would send to friends that now get posted soemtimes on your FB wall? I liked those questions. They were interesting ways to find out more about people you knew. Now the quesitons were not terribly deep, more just fun.

But I like answering questions and recently I was pointed to a set of 36 questions to really help you get to know another person. (Hat tip to Sean Bonner for the link.) I read the first few and realized they would make for a good, spontaneous blog session so I stopped reading them and won't until I copy/paste/answer them here.

I won't answer them all in this post, I'll scatter them around. I am curious to see what the questions will be when I get there. Technically I'm more curious to what the answers will be.

Why not answer them yourself? Let's get to know each other better, answer in the comments or on your own blog. I'll start with the first five. Here we go:

1) Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

Oooh, tough one right off the bat. So many choices. Plus, maybe it needs a few qualifiers. Anyone living in the world: Bill Clinton popped into my head, so I'll put that down. Historical: Laura Ingalls Wilder or Ben Franklin. Fictional Character: At this very moment it has to be Doctor Who. But ask me again in two days.

2. Would you like to be famous? In what way?

Yes. As someone who does good things for others.

3. Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you're going to say? Why?

Only very rarely when I'm hoping to pitch something personal or speaking to someone about my creative projects and need their help.

4. What would constitute a perfect day for you?

Living somewhere in Italy, spending they day playing with Kurt and Harper, writing more pages on whatever project I'm into and cooking a great dinner. (The Italy part is not critical, but it sure will be nice some day soon.)

5. When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?

I sing to myself all the time. I was just singing "Every Day is a Winding Road" this afternoon, out loud to myself. I sing to Harper every night before bed. It is the Good Night song that my dad used to sing to me. She sings along with me sometimes and that just melts my heart.

And speaking of Harper, I have to go get her now. Back tomorrow for more questions!
