If everyone else were jumping off a cliff, I'd point and laugh. But since it's just a meme...

From the lovely and talented jandjsalmon
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I respond by asking you a couple personal questions so I can get to know you better.If I already know you well, expect the questions may be a little more intimate!
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

1.       When did you know you wanted to be an actress?


When I was a senior in high school, at semester break the counselor called me to her office and told me if I wanted to graduate, I would have to take another elective.  After much eye-rolling and deep-sighing, she gave me the options of Theatre 1 (me & a bunch of freshmen) and Homemaking.  I (with the foreknowledge that I would be hopeless at all things domestic, I suppose) chose theatre, and got the lead in the Spring Play, 'Tracy Lord' in The Philadelphia Story.  (It’s a great movie with Jimmy Stewart, Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant… go rent it!)  One taste, and I was hooked.  I knew that that was what I was supposed to be, like someone had flipped a switch.   I majored in theatre and have been in 37 plays to date.  If you want to read a short story I wrote about it, it's here.

2. Where is your most favourite place to visit and why?


My most favorite place to visit is New York City, Manhattan specifically.  Hubby and I go once a year for the food, the shows, and the nightlife.  We LOVE it.

3. Of all your fictional favourites... who is your most favourite character. (and you can't say Draco! ;))


Lauren Henderson writes Sam Jones, a British sculptress who solves murders.  She’s awesome (Lauren and Sam).  And Simon Brett has a series of probably 13 or so books about Charles Paris, a middle aged character actor that inadvertently solves murders.  I love Charles Paris.  If I were a man, that’s probably (sadly) what I would evolve into.

4. Are you a 'walk in the rain' kinda girl or do you carry an umbrella? 


Oh, dear.  An umbrella.  Am very vain about my hair.

5. I know you have boys... but if you had had a girl, what would you have named her... OR if your boys had been girls, what would they have been named? (I'm always curious... because we totally KNEW what we'd name our kids - both genders- from very early on). 


Easy.  Grace Elizabeth.  I had it ready to whip out TWICE.  And again, just a few weeks ago!

Oh, and because a friend was talking about the gym today, I decided I'd go.  Dear heavens, I hurt.  

I cannot get LJ off of italics.  Whatever.
