You know what I love about reading People In The Sun?
A lot of stuff, actually. The pit bull. The baby. The Valentine to his wife.
Also? The fact that he lives in Baltimore. And every time I think about that, I start singing “I Love You Baltimore”, from Hairspray. Not well, but enthusiastically.
Anywho, he had this interview up last week, and put out the call to see if anyone else wanted to be interviewed. I immediately got all Horshack:
“Ooh! Ooh! Pick me!”
So here we go.
1) ” Is it weird to open up to strangers online?”
Wow, this made me all paranoid. Do you think I’m too open? I don’t say anything on the blog that I wouldn’t tell you the first time we met, at a party or at the playground. Some people would smile politely, then walk away and avoid me from there on in. And some people pull up a chair, and hang out, and its fun. So, no.
2) “If you had a time machine, would you go for the guy on the left? (Hint: Strong the dark side is with him now.)”
I feel like the slow kid, but after waaaay too much time spent scanning the internet, I have no idea who that is. But I’m going to say no. He looks cocky, like he’d sleep with your best friend and be all, like, “What?” when you called him on it.
3) “How often does your head explode? Too often?”
Nearly daily. And then I get my shit back together (or at least into some semblance of together) and carry on. So far, so good.
4) “What were you meant to do?”
Wow, loaded gun. Because I think maybe I’m supposed to say ‘raise kids!’. But I don’t know that. I’m doing it, and I do it well some days and I’m a phenomenal failure at it other days. (If I’m meant to do anything, I think it’s maybe something with words. Maybe)
5) “Do you have a car sticker? Why or why not?”
No. Not one. I judge people by the stickers in their windows. “Well, no shit he cut me off, he listens to a crappy radio station!” Plus, the whole fish sticker thing got out of hand.
I’m always convinced that the purchase of a better car is right around the corner, so I’ve never adorned a car, never improved one. I still have the remote starter my husband bought me 13 years and 3 cars ago. I never had it installed. Because that better car was sure to fall into my lap as soon as I installed it.
(Thanks for the interview, PeopleInTheSun. And for the love of god/allah/buddah/spongebob, tell me who that dude in the picture is!)
