What makes you think you can write a blog?
I have a laptop and a pair of glasses that make me look smart.
Why a blog? Why now?
It occurred to me that there aren’t nearly enough blogs about me. So who better to write one than me? And what better to write about than the things I do? You may be shocked, amused, intrigued, bored, or mystified at the things I do, but you’ll never know what’s coming next. You may find that we have a lot in common. Or you may just pity me. Either way, this blog is a great outlet for me to write, share, think, and discuss, and I hope you’ll find it a bookmark-worthy site. Also see my post I’m Writing a Blog So You Don’t Have To.
What are your interests?
Reading, music, food, writing, sleeping, making lists, movies, gardening, Bikram yoga, eating in hospital cafeterias, finding ways to do everything from my bed
Do you have any other Web sites?
Yup! Way before blogging was called blogging, I wrote about my participation in the Avon Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk:
Favorite book, movie, song, TV show
Game of Thrones, Inglourious Basterds, “Tsunami,” by Manic Street Preachers, “Breaking Bad.” Ask me again in a week.
Do you just blog or do you actually work?
Sometimes I really do work. I edit books for an independent publisher based in New York.
Confess: Do you work in bed?
As my interests above reveal, yes, I do sometimes work in bed. But not under the covers or in my pajamas. I work fully clothed.
Speaking of “fully clothed,” what’s this “I Do Nude” business?
Well, Dave and I have been to some nude beaches and a nude resort. I draw the line at nude bowling.
Who is this “Dave” and why do I care?
Dave is my much-adored husband of 22 years. His many job titles include nose squeezer, chin chucker, foot rubber, financial manager, chief snuggler, tax preparer, travel companion, fellow music-lover and concert-goer, keeper of the lawn, assassin of the hedge, and master of the flame. And he does his own laundry! You care because I Do Things would not exist without Dave’s support. Plus, you’ll be reading about a lot of Dave’s “Things,” too.
List 5 things you’ll never do.
- eat raisins
- board an airplane without my magic flying pills
- wear high heels
- get another Brazilian wax
- pose for Playboy
Interesting physical feature?
I have a scar from a magnetic hockey board dropped on the bridge of my nose by my brother.
What can you do that no one else can do?
Wiggle my nose. Without moving my mouth (video on request).
When people behind me in line stand too close to me. One old lady almost got her toe separated from her foot when I “accidentally” stepped on it.
Complete this sentence: I always wanted to be _____
A flower child.
Perfect day, weather-wise.
Ferris wheel or rollercoaster?
Neither. I’m scared of heights and scared of death.
What’s your favorite self-indulgence?
OK. Let’s get it over with. Do you, by any chance, have cats?
Oh, how did you know to ask that? Yes! Gus and Prudence are featured every now and then. We said good-bye to our beloved Simone, 18, in August of 2007.
