Question 1: Where is your favourite place to be alone and why?
I like travelling alone. I think better when I’m in motion. It’s not really one place or another. Any particular place I can think of is somewhere I enjoy spending time with my friends. I guess I’m not much of an “alone” person.
Question 2: What is your favourite holiday?
It isn’t exactly a holiday, but when I was a little girl we had to put on these Winter Pageants at school. My friends all hated them but I loved spending the month decorating, learning songs and dances. Afterwards we’d have a big dance with everyone and their families, and my cousin and uncle would come visit from out of town. If that were a holiday it’d be my favourite.
Question 3: Describe your family in 8 words.
Caring, overbearing, sweet, hilarious, stubborn, creative, idiotic, loyal.
We’re an odd bunch.
Question 4: What is something that people make fun of you for?
I used to get teased about how I did my hair. Now I get teased for my choice in men.
Question 5: What is the most memorable untrue rumour that has ever been spread about you?
Wow…well anything Connie has ever spread about has been somewhat truthful. I don’t think any of them were untrue. I guess it’s more gossip than rumours. I ran away to get married once. Never got married. For some reason people still think I’m engaged to the man.
Question 6: Do you have any nicknames? If so which is your favourite and which ones do you hate?
Let’s see, Freckles and Pigtails. Both nicknames I absolutely hate. I’ve never understood why anyone would nickname you based on what you look like. I used to wish people would nickname me something like Speedy or Lightning. I think I’ve outgrown nicknames at this point.
Question 7: What are 3 things that you would never do?
Elope (again). Eat bugs. Drink tea without milk and sugar.
Question 8: What’s been on your mind lately?
I’ve been living with a man who hates me, putting up with my cousin’s nonsense and still have yet to tell my parents I’m back in town. I need to get my own place.
Question 9: What is your favourite season and why?
Winter. It’s so much fun! The snow, the festivities, the hot chocolate! It makes me feel like a little kid again.
Question 10: What do you want to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered as someone who made a positive impact in others lives. Even if it was something small. I’d just hope someone remembered me fondly…although I could care less about how that man remembers me. He’s stubborn. He’ll do as he wishes. He can stay miserable for all I care.
Although, if by some miracle I manage even a smile from him I think I’ll have done my job.
