Ok, here's the dilly yo.
What follows is a 5 question interview/survey that was put to me by newest_fad. It is a chain interview of sorts. Per the conditions of this interview, I have to post my answers here for her amusment as well as anyone else who stumbles through. The deal is, if you would like to be itnerviewed by me, leave a comment requesting so and I will come up with 5 questions I would like to know about you. Then you post it in your journal, so on and so forth.
1. your honest opinion of the state of kentucky?
I love Kentucky. Up until a year ago, I used to complain some about it. But after travelling a good deal of the country in the past year, I've come to appreciate it more. It truly is "God's country" as a lotta Kentuckians are fond of saying. One thing I've always loved about Kentucky is it's blend. It is where Appalachia, the south, and midwest come together. There are few places with as much character and charm as Kentucky. Besides, where else in the world can you live where they grow tobacco, make damn good whiskey, and love to gamble on the horses. I hate being in other states and not being able to find Maker's Mark whiskey in bars and restaurants. We have given the world Hunter S. Thompson, Johnny Depp, Slint, Les McCann, and Richard Hell. We have the world's best kept culinary secrets: the Hot Brown and Burgoo. One of my favorite places to be in the whole world is Ketnucky in sprnig, when the dogwoods are in bloom. Then later, when the locusts bloom and the air is so fragrant. Then just at the start of summer all those blooms blow around in the spring wind and it looks like snow. I may choose to live other places someday for different experiences and other opportunities, but Kentucky will always be home, and Kentucky will always have my heart.
2. what you look for in a companion (this can also mean a friend)?
Someone I feel I can be myself around. Someone who has the capacity to pull me out of my shell that I like to hide inside from time to time. Someone who likes words and music. Someone who can point out the beauty in something I may have missed. Someone who likes to converse at odds just for the thrill of debate. Someone with an open mind.
3. the last book you read that made an impression on you was?
The Big Bang Never Happened by Eric Lerner
4. strongest conviction and why its so important?
Life is too short. It's too short to waste your time being petty. It's too short to spend hating people. It's too short to worry excessivley about what you already have done and what you will do. "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans." - John Lennon
5. on average, do you say yes or no more?
I am an excessively agreeable person. It ain't pretty being easy...
