So, one of the current crazes sweeping the blogosphere (well, the parts I read, anyhow) is to conduct interviews with people. Here’s how it works – someone sends you five questions, which you have to answer….then (in a My Name Is Earl, karmically linked type thing) you do the same for others.
Two bloggers whose blogs I am merrily addicted to started the ball rolling for me – and the first to send me questions was cK – do check out his blog, ‘Drama Mater’ if you’re up for a good read, peppered with wit, photos and ruminations on many things. Thanks for the ?s, cK….here we go:
1. If you could suddenly be a medical expert, what sort of expert would you be?
What a delightfully left-field question. My initial urge would be to be a paediatrician – I love work with kids, and that way I’d be able to continue. But the attraction of something really high-falutin’ like brain surgery would be up there also. Or maybe psychology – I find the inner workings of people quite fascinating.
Or I could just be Greg House? Awesome.
2. You’re a musician (or a vocalist). You’re about to perform a show that’s very important for you. Where is it and what role do you play in this band?
Hmmmmm. Let’s say it’s at home in Forres – it’s my hometown, after all, and hometown gigs always have a certain resonance. For it to really pack a punch, let’s say all my friends are in attendance also (a good half to two-thirds of my closest friends have never, ever been to the town I hail from!). I’d be the singer, I guess, either backing or lead…it’s my most natural place in a band. Ideally I’d be backing someone truly phenomenal with lots of ad libs and handclaps, and we’d be playing a Forres gig as a favour to me – it’d be cool to take a big name home! Or maybe I’d be singing lead. I don’t know. I just love singing.
3. If you won a contest to remove one obnoxious tv personality from the airwaves (radio or tv), who would it be?
Oooooh, the temptation! And yet I’m struggling. Could I just get rid of Big Brother contestants entirely? Fan that I am of so many reality shows, I cannot stand that show. Or, oh, hang on….could I get rid of Ann Coulter? The woman peeves me no end, and always displays a lack of grace that is truly astounding!
4. What three other countries would you like to live in for at least six months?At the moment…
Canada, Chile, and Scotland!
5. Luge or bobsled?
Bobsled without a doubt, for two reasons – a)Luge = the crazy. I know, lets travel at up to 70 mph+ on what is, essentially, a souped up tea tray. And b) Cool Runnings, baby!
Thanks for the great questions, cK! Apologies for any errors within – it’s 7.30 a.m. here and I’ve been awake since three a.m. – have a chest/cold/flu bug thing, yuk. Pinks, I will get onto your questions v. soon, am looking forward to them.
So, who’d like some questions from me? Or would anyone else like to interview me? Go for your life, gorgeous folk!
Have an amazing day,
