An Interview

April 23, 2007

Tracy, aka Fuzzball, sent me the following five questions:

1) You wake up to find that you’re living in a stereotypical chick flick. Which film would be your life?

Given the state of affairs around the McDougall Manor, I’m tempted to go with Must Love Dogs.

2) At this time and place in your life, are you where you expected
you’d be when you were a wide-eyed college freshman? What (if anything)
is different?

Geographically, no.  If you’d asked my eighteen-year-old self where I’d be when I was twenty-seven, there’s pretty much no chance I’d have answered Austin.  Now, I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

In other things, I like to think I’m where I hoped I would be.  I’m married to a wonderful woman, I’m surrounded by four crazy dogs, and I have a job that I (for the most part) love.  What’s more, I’ve pushed through and actually written a novel.

As a person, I feel I’m far more mature – and certainly more confident – than I was at 18.

3) In the year 2010 the world does away with ALL AUTOMOBILES. What becomes your new hobby? 😉


4) If you switched places with Smith, what kind of human do you think he’d be?

The instructor of his puppy training class once likened him to Lebowski.  Me?  I think Smith would be big, dumb, and lovable.  Sort of like Fesig from The Princess Bride.

5) Okay, everyone loves this one: Name your superpower of choice and why.

Easy.  The ability to control time and space.

Why?  So I could sleep in for an extra three hours and still wake up at 6:30.  So I could get all that stuff done.  So I could pull some crazy practical jokes.  And so I could hop around the world and witness various events throughout history.


Would you like to participate? Here are the rules:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me”, or words to that effect. Extra points for style.

2. I will respond by emailing you five questions, but I get to pick the questions, no questions asked. Any questions?

3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.

4. You have to include this explanation, and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
