Well, you are getting two posts in one night, because Waspgoddess posted the interview meme on her blog and I wanted to play. Feel free to join in. If you'd like to interviewed, leave your email address in a comment, and I'll send you five questions; then you post the answers on your blog.
Here are WG's questions and my answers:
1. Are you a morning or a night person?
NIGHT. I looove to sleep in and unplug the phone and turn down the answering machine volume all the way before turning in for the night. Every once in a while I randomly wake up at 7 am and go for a bike ride or something, but for the most part, I'm a complete night owl.
2. What's the best thing that happened to you this week?
This is a toughie. I met numerous dogs, including 12-week-old miniature schanuzer Max and a super-friendly golden retriever who bumped my nose with his rump (he was turning around in excited circles). But top kudos have to go to:
a) tonight's Strand trip, where I got 6 books at half-price.
b) getting a $92 refund check from New York State (totally unexpectedly).
3. If you had a superpower, what would it be, and why?
I'd love to be able to teleport, out of embarrassing or boring situations, and also as a travel substitute. Imagine closing your eyes and opening them in a new place, without an Amtrak ride or a plane journey...
4. Favourite ice cream flavour?
This is hard too. My favorite Ben & Jerry's is Chunky Monkey, but I like banana and pumpkin at the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory here in New York. I guess since banana appears twice (Chunky Monkey is banana-based), that's my favorite. I also like peppermint stick on occasion. Oh, but I also like that oatmeal cookie Ben & Jerry flavor. It's pretty new.
5. What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
I wouldn't mind coming into a few million. I'm not a big spender, but I would like to pay off my law school loans. I wouldn't mind publishing a book, either!
