I was sent an interview by this awesome blogger. (CPAMomVA, you know you rock!) She had a little contest of sorts going where fellow bloggers were tagged to do a meme asking her questions and she did the same. I graciously asked her to ask away and this is what she wanted to know.
1) If you were given $1,000 to spend totally on yourself in 30 minutes or less, how would you spend it?
I would love to say that I would be responsible and pay off a credit card. But to be honest, I would buy myself an iPod Nano, some clothes, and something for the kiddos.
2) What if you had to give the $1,000 to other people/organizations?
This is an easy one for me. I would give to the the Children's Attention Home here. It is a facility for children (newborns to late teens) when they are removed from their homes by DSS. They totally take care of every need, and it is a nice facility. The hubby and I are going to start volunteering there soon, and we donate toys and services as often as we can.
3) Paris, France or Sydney, Australia - preference for a vacation
This is an easy one for me. I have always wanted to go to Australia. I vow that I will get to go someday.
4) About you - your nickname? Eye Color? Hair Color? Tatoos? Piercings?
Hey! That is 5 questions in one!
I don't have a true nickname per se, but AM calls me ScaryCarrie. I was called Roachelle (for my middle name) in high school. And there is always the ever popular CareBear. Can you guess my real name?
Eye Color: Hazel Brown
Hair Color: Auburn. Right now I also have caramel highlights in the front.
Tattoos: A yellow smileyface on my left shoulder, a celtic cross on my right shoulder, and a gothic butterfly on my left leg. I am getting one more for my son soon.
Piercings: Just my ears now. I had my tongue pierced while I was in college, but AM hated it and bought me a pair of diamond earrings in exchange for the tongue ring.
5) What was the last book you read? Your favorite book ever?
I just finished "The Road" by Cormic McCarthy. Excellent read, although dark and really different from anything I have ever read before. I'd have to say my favorite book ever is "She's Come Undone" by Wally Lamb. Outstanding read.
I am currently looking for a new book. Any suggestions?
6) What was the last movie you saw? Most favorite movie ever?
This is sad, but I can't remember the last movie I saw. At the theater it was Barnyard with my daughter. At home it was Cars. See a trend. I totally need to get out more. without the kids.
7) Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie?
Both are beautiful and I big puffy heart Friends, but I would say Angelina Jolie. There is something about her that I think is intriguing. A that little bit of bad girl. But I have to say if she doesn't stop adopting kids, I think I may move on. Enough already.
8) Worst memory from childhood? Best?
This is a tough one. It is hard to pick just one. I think the worst memory was coming home from school when I was 5 to an empty house. I don't think I have ever been so scared in my life, and I have seperation anxiety issues now in crowded places as a result.
The best childhood memory was probably winning Reserve Champion in Showmanship at the Hardin County Fair with my horse Azzie. I had worked so hard, and in that area it is a big deal. You get your picture in the paper, a huge plaque, trophy, and ribbon. I still have it to this day.
OK, Now it is your turn. I am not going to tag anyone in particular for a meme, but feel free to participate. And if you want to interview me send me those questions and I will post them here.
