make decisions. You'll probably figure that out from the anwers I give.
Here's the post from oystersnout ...and my answers...such as they are:
5 Questions For Big Sister (who is 5'4")
congratulations, Big Sister (who is 5'4") ! as the first commentor on
my interview meme answers, you win a moment in the spotlight!
Question # 1:
all know that basil and your sisters (5'6", anyway) love to tease you
about the mistakes you made while learning to cook, but then always say
that you are an excellent cook. What is your favorite dish to make
(besides the ones that you have already shared, that is) ?
Hmmm...this one is kind of hard, since what I love to cook depends on how many folks are around, who the folks are, and whether it's hot or cold weather.
If it's something all sides of the family love, then it would have to
be beef stroganoff (the quick and easy ground beef kind) with rice.
My favorite "company coming over" main dish (perhaps 2-4 folk coming over) is Chicken Cordon Bleu.
If it's something to feed a crowd (like all the kids at church supper), then it would have to be spaghetti.
My son's favorite dish is Tuna Casserole...go figure.
If it's cold weather, it's one-pot
dishes for me....like chili, or cream of chicken and broccoli soup, or
If it's decent weather (like no tornado or hurricane warnings) I grill the meat on the gas barbecue grill.
Of course, all of those are main dishes, but I do like preparing vegetables and side dishes, too.
Question # 2:
Your favorite: White, milk, or dark chocolate? and why?
My favorite is milk chocolate, because that's what a Hershey Bar is, and my all time favorite A-#1 chocolate is a Hershey Bar with Almonds. I like dark chocolate. I do not like white chocolate. I don't like bad chocolate of any variety...which reminds me of a candy swap that went on for years between Mean Sister and me...
Question # 3:
have just won a contest from a local auto dealership and have two
choices of a brand new vehicle: a sweet little convertable sports car
or a more practical full-size pickup truck. Both are of equal value.
Which would you choose? and why?
I would choose the convertible sports car, because we already have a pickup, and because I wouldn't have chosen the pickup anyway. I just bought a van (and gave my car to my son) for the sake of practicality (somebody needed a new vehicle, and I chose me over him), but I MISS MY CAR!
Question # 4:
In no particular order, what are the top 5 things that make you happy?
Well, I couldn't decide on the top 5, so I decided to cheat...
A job well done (whether it's for my profession or whether it's a personal goal I fulfilled...like learning something new well enough I can explain it to someone else, or solving a logic problem)
Pleasant surroundings (warm weather, no loud noises, (no cacaphony), a serene setting (near water and trees), smiling faces, an uncluttered, organized, and clean house [which by the way, is nonexistent, but IS a dream I have], a freshly made bed with 300+ count sheets)
Hearing good news (like a family member accomplished something they're proud of... whether it's public acclaim or not) There's too much bad news going around all the time...
Entertainment (concerts, reading, a good movie or tv program [which means I have to get "caught up in it" which usually means it has to make sense to me or trigger memories...but not always,] a
cd that matches my mood of the moment, hearing a song I love [because
it triggers fond memories] on the radio)
Spending time with family or friends (like going to church in my hometown with my family, or vacationing in Florida with one of the sisters at Walt Disney World or Panama City Beach, or playing a game that Mean Sister and basil can't gang up and cheat on against Little Sister and me, or going to Wal Mart with the sisters at 2:00 AM, or going to a movie with my son, or eating a good meal, or having a nice long conversation with the preacher, or going to a concert with someone who enjoys it as much as I do)
Question # 5:
weeks off. No responsibility. No cares. Where would you rather spend
the time: a) Hawaii, b) California, c) New York City, d) Home, Sweet
Home? and,of course,why?
YIKES! I hate to have to choose. I'd do something I haven't done before, so choice D is out. I guess first choice would be Hawaii, because I have never been there. Second choice would be California, because I have only been to San Francisco. I wouldn't choose two weeks in NYC...one week, yes, but two weeks...no...because I couldn't breathe around all that concrete for that long.
there's your 5 questions. answer them
on your blog, and i'll link to your post (if i can figure out this
trackback thingie, that is!)
and of course, you are bound by the
law of the meme to pass it on to as many commentors as you like, and
then you can make up the questions!
OK, I don't even know what an interview meme is, and I surely didn't know they had laws about these kinds of things...
Does this mean that I have to ask questions of someone who responds? Sheesh! I should have read moehawk's post more carefully before I commented...
Maybe no one will respond...
