My Interview With Kate

After reading Kate's interview with Daryl over at Chronicles of a Country Girl I knew I wanted to be part of the next bunch of interviews taking place. Not only is it fun but it's also another great way for us to get to know one another. So I asked Kate to interview me.

1. You've just won the million dollar lottery. What's the first thing you'd want to do with the money?

Believe it or not this subject has been coming up at our house a lot recently. A 21 year old girl Trucker and I both know from a neighboring town just hit the jackpot for a cool couple million in Tunica a couple of weeks ago.

The very first thing we would do with the money is pay off our house. Going to the bank with the money to pay this place off would be the biggest thrill in my lifetime. Doing a "nanananana" dance in their lobby would be sooo much fun. Then we'd bull doze the place and build a new replica in it's place. I know this sounds plain and corny but that's what we'd do.

2. Who is your hero and why?

Ok, this one I've never given any thought to at all. I guess because I don't have any hero's. To me life is full of various hero's in one way or another. So just living life to the very best of your abilities is hero enough for me.

3. What is your absolute favorite meal? And don't forget the dessert!

I'm a simple person who actually likes simple foods. My absolute favorite meal is the three dish combo at Red Lobster. All shrimp trio. Followed by anything chocolate.

4. When did you begin blogging and why?

Until this question I've never bothered to look at the date. My first blog post was March 5, 2008. Gee coming up on the one year mark. Cool. I started blogging as a way to express myself and I love writing. I also love sitting in front of the computer because I'm lazy that way. ha.

5. What would you consider your greatest achievement?

Learning to live again after overcoming spousal abuse. Both mental and physical. Learning that I am much better than to live with that in my life.

Sorry is this wasn't what you were expecting or if you found it boring. It's still me in a nutshell. And the painkillers, as I've been in bed sick for four days now.

Now the rules of the interview are simple. If you want to be interviewed just leave me a comment saying "Interview me" and I'll contact you with my questions.

2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. (I get to pick the questions).

3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.

4. You will 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.

So let's get to interviewing one another, shall we?

Bravo forgetting out of an abusive situation & flourishing! And now you've got Trucker!

I love Red Lobster too, but they closed the one here. Now we have to drive 30 miles to go to one.

You did a great job and I thank you for the chance to get to know you better!

No one should ever stay in a bad relationship...I am sorry you had to experience that, but it did make you stronger.

All seafood is yummy but I love shrimp best of all!

I did my interview today as is flying around the blogosphere fast.

Wonderful idea! Your answers were honest and personal.
Now who will interview me?

Country Girl said...

Boring? You kidding? I loved your last answer. And hey, I've been to those casinos down in Tunica! My best friend ran one of them until a couple of years ago. He's now in Biloxi after they rebuilt the Beau Rivage.

This was fun!

Well done!

Sondre Lyn said...

Impressive, coming out of an abusive relationship. You definitely rock big time! I haven't been to Red Lobster in years. I haven't had one near me in the last few places I have lived. (England, NH, and here in southeast GA) I used to love their cheddar biscuits. They still have them?

I want to play! Interview me! Interview me! :D

Gail said...

Questions are answered, post has been made but I can't link! If you will make a comment on my site, maybe they will link from there.
This has been fun!
