Interview :)  
1 -- Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 -- I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 -- You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 -- You'll include this explanation.
5 -- You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed

Here are my answers to the questions that irisheyes77 asked me:

1. Who or what led you to LJ? I sort of stumbled upon it one day while reading some theatre message boards. A few people who posted there had journals and I thought it was an interesting idea - it took me over half a year to decide to start one myself, though. :P

2. How did you and Mark meet? How long did you date before you were married? Mark and I met in the Jaycees. I met him at my very first event with the Jaycees - a Christmas caroling service project. I later found that Mark was told I would be there by a friend and that's why he showed up, or he would've slept in that day! ;) We only dated for about 3 months before we started looking for a place together. We ended up buying our house just 7 months after our first date, and a year after that we were married. :) A lot of people say it was all pretty quick but I knew Mark was the right one almost from the start. :)

3. What size of a family would be your ideal? Since I'm the only child, I've always wanted to have at least two children. Mark's not too fond of children and so we've been postponing the family idea for the past 5 years. It's not to say we'll never have children, but right now it's pretty much a non-issue with us. The thing that has surprised me is that lately I've been re-thinking my position on having children as well...

4. Thanks to your recent post - what is your favorite ice cream flavor? I'm a chocoholic through and through so my favorite ice cream flavor has to be chocolate with macadamia nuts from Lapperts (a local ice cream place in Kauai). It's so delicious! :) A close second is Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Brownie ice cream... YUM! :)

5. How many plays have you attended? Hmmm...I've been to 11 straight plays and 26 different musicals - but 54 musicals all together counting repeats - and all within the past 3 years or so. :P Of them all, the two shows I've seen the most are - "Side Show" and "1776" - which I've both seen five times each. :P Yes, I spend WAAAAY too much time (and money) in the theatre - which is probably why I have no life. ;)

Current Mood: hothot

Did you know that Amanda and I were married after a mere five months of dating?

Wow - five months! :) I can hardly say I'm all that surprised, though. When you know you've found the right one - it happens right away! :)

Feel free to interview me...

1. What are some of the best things about living in North Carolina?

2. I know that your job gives you your share of headaches, but what would you want to be doing if you didn't work at your current job?

3. I was a vegetarian throughout most of the last ten years of my life (sadly, not anymore). What made you decide to become a vegetarian?

4. How did you get to be such a huge NASCAR fan?

5. I know you mostly work behind the scenes, but as an audience member, what's been your favorite musical and/or straight play? Why?

Tom and I really flipflopped back and forth about wanting children or not. For awhile, we were even considering never having any. I'm so glad that we did have Cameron though - he's really added so much to our life.

We've been going back and forth on the issue for a while now too. I think Mark would be happy just to have pets for the rest of our lives... and lately it's surprised me that I've been wondering if I might not be content with the same thing.

This interview would be much better than a job interview. :)
Sherishutterbug93 on July 26th, 2003 07:32 pm (UTC)
I hope this is better than a job interview. ;)

Here are my questions:

1. What was the first thing that attracted you to Roger and what about him makes you know that he's the "right one"? :)

2. While you were growing up did you and Laura ever trick anyone into believing that you were each other?

3. What made you want to go into teaching?

4. I know you go to Disney a lot - what is your favorite thing to do there?

5. What is the most special thing, to you, about living in California?

Sherishutterbug93 on July 26th, 2003 07:44 pm (UTC)
Woo hoo!

Here are my questions:

1. How did you get to be such a big fan of hockey?

2. What made you decide on teaching as a career?

3. Because I just found out about this recently & because it fascinates me - what role was your favorite that you've played so far in a stage production and why was it your favorite?

4. What would your ideal family of the future be like?

5. I know you do a lot of volunteer work, what's been the most heartwarming experience that you've had volunteering?

Interview me. :-)
Sherishutterbug93 on July 27th, 2003 03:10 am (UTC)
Yay! :) Okay, here goes...

My questions for you:

1. I know that your job gives you a lot of unnecessary stress, what would your ideal job be?

2. I know you also do a lot of volunteer work for many different organizations. Which one do you feel the strongest about and why is it the closest to your heart?

3. What's been the most heartwarming experience that you've had volunteering?

4. Please describe to me your perfect future husband and family.

5. (Apologies for this last question - it's late...) I notice that "reality TV" is one of of your listed interests, would you ever try out for a reality show and if so, which one would you most likely want to be on?
