Q & A from FW

#1. As you may have noticed, I have a monster sweet tooth (you read my answer to the convience store question), so, if you could only have one kind of candy for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Oh, how to pick. I can’t pick one. I’ll narrow it down to three: Twix, Peanut M&M’s or Snickers. Oooh, or Heath bars. I love those, but I almost never never have those. I really like Twix or M&Ms, though – those are the top 2. Yeah. (I’m hungry now).

#2. How did you pick your children’s names? Do they have stories behind them?
The Princess’s name was easy to pick. We were tossing names around, before I was even pregnant, and we picked it. To be honest, I think there was a girl somewhere along the way with the same name that Hubby was crushing on back in the day, but, whatever. I wanted to name her Julia. Hubby hated it. He liked the name Montana. I didn’t want to doom her to a life of being a stripper.
With Pumpkin, it wasn’t nearly as easy. We each emailed each other a huge list, then I picked my top five favorite of those, and he did the same. We took the names that were common on both of our lists, and then we kept whittling it down. We ended up with Alexa Jordan. Which was her name in utero for a few weeks, and then I decided I didn’t like that. And I’m glad we didn’t go there, because she’s not an Alexa (though she probably woulda been AJ).

#3. If salary were no object, and it in no way interfered with child rearing duties, what would your dream job be?
You know, there are a lot of things I would love to do. I have considered going to get certified to be a doula (the process doesn’t sound easy, that’s for sure… but it shouldn’t be). I’d love to be an editor and read books all day, too. Or to be a trainer and work in a gym. That’d be awesome too – getting paid to workout?! I’d love it.

#4. What is one thing people would never susupect about you?
This is an interesting question because I think there are a lot of things people would never suspect about me, even close friends. I don’t tend to talk a whole bunch about me, and I think that different people from different points of my life know me in different ways. I was a different person in high school that I was in college, and I was a different person in college than I am now, and I think that if people from those different areas of my life were to get together and swap stories, there might be a lot of surprised people. That didn’t really answer the question though. I think people would be surprised at a lot of things, though. It would be hard to pick just one.

#5. If you had to be stuck on an island with Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, or Brittany Spears, which one would you choose and why?
Pick a trainwreck, any trainwreck, eh? I don’t suppose there is any good answer to this one – but I think I would pick Britney. Given her tendency for going out commando and getting her hooha photographed and blasted all over the internet, I certainly feel like I know her already… Seriously, because she’s the one of the three with kids I would love to know why on earth she’s acting like such a whackadoo. And I want to know why she was wearing her underpants on the outside of her jeans in the “Slave 4 U” video. That was weird.
