Here are the “Getting to Know You” questions:
1) What is your dream occupation?
I would have loved to have been a rock star. That’s right. You heard me. Touring the world, having the press wondering which boy toy I was sleeping with that week, singing my ass off in an amazingly sexy outfit, doing interviews, having an entourage, working with my personal trainer and marrying one hot guy after another. Why, oh why did I quit singing lessons!?!?
2) What is the best dish that you can cook?
If forced, I can make tomato sauce from scratch and a killer Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Cooking is not my thing though. I’m much better at ordering.
3) Have you ever been mentioned in the newspaper? What for?
Yes and it was not for committing murder. Aside from our wedding announcements, thanks to my creative endeavors I’ve been interviewed a few times here and there. Nothing major though. If only I could get involved in a real scandal. That would so help my career!
4) What’s the worst and/or most memorable job you’ve ever had?
I’ll go with the worst simply because it’s far funnier than the most memorable.
The worst was working for a small firm in Soho where the President of the company was having an affair with my supervisor who was an alcoholic loose cannon. This relationship (and lack of business) would create many an opportunity for high drama. One time, she smacked him across the face and stormed off. That was one of my favorite incidents. Another thing they’d often do (aside from viciously fight on a daily basis) was find ways to leave the office together. Their dialogue was always poorly written and was similar to this:
“Hey Joan. Iam going to go out for lunch. What are you doing?”Then, they would come back from “lunch” together obviously freshly showered. Despite the entertainment factor, I HATED this job.
“I am going to the dentist. Would you like to split a cab?”
“Why Joan, that is very economical of you. I would love to split a cab.”
“Terrific Ted. Let us go then and innocently share a cab together to our separate destinations.”
5) When you were a teenager, at what age did you envision yourself getting married? How old were you in reality when you got married?
For some reason, I always thought I’d get married SUPER early… like in my late teens and to an older man. That absolutely did not happen though. I got married at age 34 and my husband is only a few years older than me. In retrospect, I like the way things actually worked out then how I envisioned.
6) What’s your most hated household chore? What’s your favorite?
Most hated: I think I may have to go with mopping on this one. Either that or cleaning my bathtub.
My favorite: I enjoy dusting for some reason. I think I like the instant gratification of it. LOOK! YOU’RE NOW CLEAN! TA DA!
7) What’s your earliest memory?
You know… I can’t really remember. I recall bits and pieces of different events but not a whole lot. Heck, I can’t even remember last week!
