Meme me up, Scotty!

Taken from bamzerlime

1. Leave me a comment about anything you wish…or just tell me you want to play.

2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.

3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.

5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

1. Where do you see yourself in 7 years? Good God. Thank you for bringing to my attention that I'll be 30 in less than a decade. Well, I'll be 30, which is something I can't really wrap my brain around. And I honestly don't really know. I hope to be tearing it up in the world of journalism, married to the person I'll love until I die, making the foray into house ownership in some fabulous city. Maybe Denver. Maybe Minneapolis. Who knows? I'm too impulsive.

2. What is your favorite thing to do in the Twin Cities? This is tough, because I love everything about these cities. Although, I adore capitalizing on the amazing Theatre scene. That's what drew me here. That and the beautiful lakes just blocks away from my apartment in Uptown.

3. Which relationships do you find most difficult (to...keep afloat, participate in, anything), familial, romantic, or of the friendly variety? Familial, hands down. My other relationships are typically peaceful and long-lasting. When it comes to family though, most of my memories involve strategic avoidance, anger or tears. Not good times.

4. Favorite film and why? My absolute, all-time favorite movie is The Philadelphia Story, because it's so goddamn romantic, the cast is unbeatable, there's bad-entertainment-journalism subplot, and it always makes me feel better or reinforces a positive mood.

5. Favorite and least favorite instrument to listen to or play?

Favorite: Piano! I love listening to it, and playing it. Piano is instrument of my soul.

Least favorite: Jaw harp. What the hell is with those things? Music my ass. Nothing says, "Why yes, I am a redneck!" quite the way a jaw harp does.

1) Honestly, Cookies by Design. I worked there nearly all of college. It was this nifty bakery where we'd shape dough into anything imaginable and put it in "bouquets." So, one obvious perk was free food. Two, everyone there was SO nice. My boss was even so accommodating that one summer, she let me work every other week because I wanted to visit my parents often, and on my work weeks, I actually stayed at my boss' home and babysat her kids. We went to Vegas twice as a fully paid employee trip (she called it "Christmas party" haha.) Yeah, it was really great! I actually felt appreciated there.

2) Sadly, it's Hole's "Violet." "I get what I want and I never want it again." I don't try to live that way on purpose. It's just turned out that way. I really need to work on changing that.

3) There's another problem. My interpretation of "major" is so convoluted. I feel that having an excellent job at Creators, or going to see Martha Wainwright in concert tonight aren't "major," though they should be. *shrug*

4) Interviewing Billy Corgan in a hotel room in 2005. Because I'd imagine it was the first time a truly truly truly obsessed fan ever got the chance to interview him. You always see the buttheads who butter Billy up in person but then they write scathing articles about him. I wasn't about that!

5) My greatest fear is being mediocre. Being average, Being merely a statistic. I want to matter. I want my writing to touch lives. I want to stand out. You know, greatness and shit, haha. Greatest pleasure is being among friends and sharing moments you know that are going to last forever. When others are happy, I'm happy. :)
