Tell Us About Yourself

One great thing about my job is that I get to meet a lot of people. On a trip to Canada I met Samantha from Karen Fosters. She is one of the funnest people you could ever meet because she has this little obsession with questions. That's right, questions. Sam has 14 pages of written questions that she keeps with her most of the time (they have the honey mustard stains to prove it). These aren't questions like where we came from or why we're here or any of those other deep things. These are fun questions to ask people so that you have more to talk about than the weather. I asked her to send me some of her favorites to post on our blog and she was kind enough to oblige.

We'd love to see your answers, so be sure to post.

What two bands/singers (one still playing together/alive and one not together/dead) would you like to come play at your b-day party (e.g. Aerosmith/Abba)?

If you could have dinner with one living famous man and one living famous woman who would they be (you all three have dinner together)?

If you could have dinner with one dead famous man and one dead famous women who would they be (they would not show up like something out of a horror movie...they would look normal!).

If you had the perfect mate and the rest of the world was either all male or all female, which would you choose (this is tougher than it seems...).

If you could have one superhero talent, what would it be (e.g. being invisible)?

If you could be one famous person for a day who would you be and what would you do?

If you could be one of our friends or family members for a day, who would you be and what would you do?

1) Simon & Garfunkel / the Beatles
2) Dr. Phil & Oprah
3) Joseph & Emma
4) all male
5) Super house cleaning powers...thinkit, it is done.
6) I would only want to be me, but if fame carries fortune with it, I would seek out people to help. The kind of people who need help (in any way), but don't ask for it. They seem to be the ones who truly need it. maybe like an extreme makeover home edition type thing.
7) I would be my husband just to gain a better appreciation for what he does everyday.

2, Martha Stewart & Duff Goldman (from Food network)
3, Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald
4, all female (I know we get dramatic, but we get stuff done instead of dancing in circles)

6, I'd be... no one drunk on tv or tabloids. Hmmm... I guess I'd like to be Liv Tyler. She's pretty, classy, down to earth, and appreciative to everyone and has positive attitude. I think I would just be her on her movie set or just a day see how she can be so positive and not jaded.
7, Your friends/family, hmm... I'd be your secretary, learn under you and be inspired and see what the process of making a line is like from start to finish to marketing.

- Let's be the highest winning lottery winner and give away all the winnings!

If you could be one of our friends or family members for a day, who would you be and what would you do?
- I'd be your co-hort and help you film videos all day, but I could only tolerate moving chipboard pieces in tiny increments for so long, then we'd have to video some serious scrapbooking.

1. Gin Blossoms & Beatles
2. Hillary Clinton & Mikhail Gorbachev
3. Benjamin Franklin & Madame Curie.
4. this IS tough....though I think I would have to go with all male.
5. I would like to have that magic cooking/cleaning power like Mrs. Weasley in Harry Potter...you know, where the knives self-cut the veggies and the brooms self-sweep! (then I would have a clean house, fed family...and I could scrap more! lol!)
6. I would say Bill Gates or Warren Buffet so I could channel their monies to charity...but I think they have already gotten that covered. so assuming that with this change of person I would also be able to do things that would stick after my day I would probably be president and make a WHOLE lotta changes.
7. I would be one of my sons so that I could finally see what goes on in their minds! lol!!

I told Lindsay he had to play too. Here are his answers:

The Bee Gee’s/ Queen- maybe the original Jackson 5

Billy Crystal/ Meg Ryan- I might even have to have what there having

Howard Hughes / Natalie Wood

Of course Female. Could we do away a certain time of the month also? If that could happen I would probably be worshiped!

To be able to fly, I hate crowded planes. There are probably times that being invisible could come in handy.

Billy Crystal- I would go to the restaurant and meet Lindsay and Meg Ryan

I would be the neighbors dog and would listen to the horrific sounds of people screaming at there kids, “don’t step on the carpet, you have dog………………………….on you’re shoes.

5) Can eat whatever I want and never gain weight.
6) Oprah. I would travel and visit cool places with my friends.

TOO FUNNY!! These are really hard questions!!

1) Newsboys/Silverwind
2) Billy Graham/Oprah
3) King David/Princess Diana
4) female (must have SOMEONE to talk with that understands! lol!)
5) to read peoples minds! (guess work done!)
6) I think being famous would be very hard. I can't even think of anyones shoes I'd want to fill for even a day! I feel like a pageant girl answering an impromptu question! AH! Stage fright just got to me! I have a heart for Africa so I guess I would also Oprah and I would visit the schools that she has set up as well as the everyday village schools.

7) One of YOUR family or friends - I would be whoever packs your paper. I could just inhale that smell all day long!! One of MY family or friends... hmm... probably my son so that I could just sit and stare in the mirror all day long making faces at myself and not have any cares of the world on my shoulders!
