6th-Feb-2009 07:21 pm
1. Leave me a comment saying, 'interview me'.
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions. (You must do this, even if it's filtered for my eyes only!)
4. 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.

Asked by the lovely framefolly :-)

1. Tell me a story from your childhood.
When I was really little, my godmother used to babysit me and I would get into all these little adventures. I was very curious and had a lot of energy. One day I decided that I wanted to roll down the stairs because it seemed like a lot of fun, so I climbed up to the top, laid on my side, and began rolling. It wasn't like I thought it'd be... I don't remember if I liked it or not, or was scared, but my godmother was at the bottom to catch me. Maybe she heard my little body hitting each step on the way down or maybe I was screaming or something (lol)... I really don't remember, but I didn't give her any warning that I was gonna do this, so I must have made some kind of noise. Anyway, I never did it again, mostly because she told me not to. lol

I like any memory I have with my godmother♥ She was always there for me and treated me like I was her own children. I kept her busy since I would always get into stuff. lol

2. If you got to live in a fictional universe, what would it be?
Some place where fairy tales come true. lol And I wanna be someone's fairy godmother or something like that, as long as I'm a fairy. Or, living in a universe where Greek gods and goddesses exist would be very interesting...

3. Has there been a poem or a short prose passage that you've carried with you through the years? Can you share it?
William Shakespeare's Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day:

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;

But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

That's the most beautiful poem I have ever read. I rarely like romantic poems and I'm not a big fan of Shakespeare, but I feel this poem is creative and artfully written, to say the least. Also, I like the complication of Shakespearian (or English) sonnets.

4. What is your favorite time of day?
Nighttime and dawn. Nighttime because that's when I have time for myself; dawn because the sky looks very lovely at that time.

5. Is there an older person in your life who you really look up to, whose life makes you think, "I want to be like that in x years?"
No one really in particular. I always admired Socrates' wisdom, Freud's creative thinking, and mothers' love, selflessness, and courage. I want to be someone who has a combination of all those things. I feel that those kind of people do wonders for the world, and I greatly admire that.

Interview Me :D Not sure when I'll update with the questions and answers, but I'll be sure to answer them here in a reply.

1. How many kids do you want to have?
2. What do you want to be when you "grow up?"
3. Describe one of your most precious memories.
4. What's your favorite movie and why?
5. Tell me one weird thing about yourself.

1. I'd prefer just 2; boy and girl. But if the first 2 are the same, we'll try a third time. Possibly a fourth, lol. But 4 would be the limit. :P

2. Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a mom. But that's taken care of, lol. I would still love to become a chef when I "grow up", although it'll never happen. I'll be a chef to my family.

3. The last time I saw my niece. We went to the airport to pick her and my sister up, and as soon as Nikki saw me, she ran towards me all smiles and happy, right into my arms. I loved that moment.

4. It's always been Beauty and the Beast. Ever since I was little, I loved it. The music, the story line, just everything about it.

5. I have to eat certain things, like tic-tacs or grapes, in pairs. I don't know why, but not having an even number bothers the crap out of me, lol.
