Interview Meme Rules are as follows: You comment on this entry requesting an interview. I respond with five questions. The questions will theoretically be tailored to you based on what I know of you (or want to know). You copy and paste those questions into your own journal, and write the answers, along with these rules. Anyone wanting an interview from you continues the game by requesting an interview from you.
Here are the questions I got from summerless_year.
What is something you are afraid of?
I'm afraid of getting old and being alone. We're not planning to have any kids, so there will be nobody to take care of me in my old age, if Kenneth dies before me. I'm sure if it happens, I'll be OK, but I still am afraid of it.
What comforts you the most?
My husband. If I'm feeling stressed or upset, a hug from him makes everything better.
To make a big decision, do you consult other people or just go it on your own, and why?
Well, I normally consult my husband, because any big decisions affect him too. But we're both pretty impulsive when it comes to big decisions. Both our houses were bought after the very first house-hunting trip. I bought my wedding dress in the first store I looked in. I think I tend to trust my gut. If my gut tells me something is the right decision, then I go with it. It's true that it's not always 100% perfect - I wish the sleeves on my wedding dress weren't so poofy, and I wish our first house had been closer to work - but I don't have any real regrets.
What's the best thing about living in your new house?
Being close to work! I love commuting by foot. I quit the gym, and now I do my yoga & weights at home, and get my cardio from walking to work. And if I'm in a rush or the weather is cold, I can take transit and be at work in 15 minutes.
Did you ever consider keeping the big pole in your backyard, and if so, what did you consider doing with it? Serious or funny.
Hee hee! I honestly did consider keeping it so I could hang my laundry. I had visions of being a very good environmentalist and hanging all my laundry. But the pole was so ugly, it really had to go. And let's face it, although I love being environmentally friendly, I'm also probably way too lazy to really hang my laundry. Throwing it into the dryer is so much quicker.
