I thought that it would be fun to have a light-hearted Q&A blog post today, in honor of the fact that many of my quilting peers are getting to meet each other “in person” in Pasadena at QuiltCon. Feel free to answer any of these that speak to you in the comments; let’s get started!
Q: If you could be an Olympic athlete, in what sport would you compete?
A: Swimming, most likely in the backstroke.
Q: What’s your favorite smell in the whole world?
A: I find this one surprisingly difficult to narrow down! Summer evenings: the smell of cut grass, local BBQs, and fresh air.
Q: What’s the first thing you do when you get home from a trip?
A: Pick up and pet Puppy The Cat and unpack!
Q: What would you name your boat if you had one?
Q: What quote or saying do people spout but is complete BS?
A: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
Q: What is the dumbest way you’ve been injured?
A: That time I was 6 years old and decided to ride my bike with my eyes closed (because, duh, that’s a genius idea!) and I plowed into a neighbors mailbox, knocking the mailbox off the post and getting scratched up by the rusty nails…
Q: What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?
A: I have a casserole recipe that calls for Pineapple and cheddar cheese; it’s surprisingly delicious and very dessert like.
Q: What was the most unsettling film you’ve seen?
A: The Life of David Gale.
Q: What is the first song lyric that you know you mishear that comes to mind?
A: Chevelle, “Mexican Sun” The actual lyric is “Scheming devils | Never make it through” but it sounds a lot like “Screaming turtles | Never make it through” and my husband and I have a claymation stop motion video idea that we always talk about in regards to our mis-hearing of the lyric.
Q: Are you wearing socks right now?
A: No, I’m barefoot.
Q: What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
A: “Don’t let your highs be too high or your lows be too low.” – Jim Niehoff
Q: Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
A: Yes. All. The. Time. In sets of 8. (Yay marching band.)
