Jessica of Daughter of Opinion has initiated the Interview Game. Here are the rules:
The Official Interview Game Rules
1. If you want to participate, leave a comment below saying “interview me.”
2. I will respond by asking you five questions – each person’s will be different.
3. You will update your journal/blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
Here are my questions and answers:
1. Best concert you ever attended?
A Bruce Hornsby concert at a little jazz club in Oakland. He was fantastic. I am a huge Hornsby fan, anyhow but watching him play is sort of a zen experience although he’s the one with the zen thing going. He is the piano. He and the keyboard are one in the same and he just plays and plays and moves in and out of various genres and tunes and he sings, too. People in the audience send requests up via little pieces of paper which he arranges on the music tray. He reads a lot more of them then he grants but he always makes comments. His concert is interspersed with amusing anecdotes and introductions and little bits of information. The guy is a genius.
2. Hardest lesson you’ve learned in life?
Don’t do anything you wouldn’t be willing to see published on the front page of the New York Times. Really. It is the only way to avoid committing a regrettable act.
3. The light is yellow – do you slow down, or speed up?
This is a really boring answer but it depends on how close I am to the light. If I’m really close and I’m moving pretty fast I speed up so that I don’t have to slam on the breaks. Otherwise I stop.
4. The last book you read?
I have been reading more than one at a time so this is a little tricky. I read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time which I liked very much. I also read a book of short stories by Wallace Stegner called The Women on the Wall. That man is also a genius. Crossing to Safety is one of the most engaging, almost plot-free books I’ve ever read. There is a story but it just sort of blossoms out of description and dialog. oops! I’m cheating on this answer – sorry.
5. Who might you have been in a previous life
A rebel and revolutionary. A free thinker and a big mouth. I was probably burned at the stake or subjected to public humiliation for which I engaged in thoroughly wicked subterfuge in order to repay my oppressors. I was an imp, I’m sure.
If you would like me to interview you please post a comment. Thanks Jessica!
