So, let's get this party started! Holly over at In My Overactive Head has sent me five interview questions so I will do my best and try not to embarrass myself.
#1. If you could be friends with any celebrity, who would it be and why?
I would most definitely be friends with the hilarious Jim Carrey. I know, he can be over-the-top and endlessly weird but I think that he is soooo funny. My favorite movie of his is Liar, Liar - I used to have it memorized as sad as that is. I love his physical comedy so I can imagine that hanging out with him would be thoroughly entertaining. I might have to risk a little embarrassment but it would totally be worth it since one of my favorite things in life is laughing!
#2. What do you remember about your first day of school?
This should be good. I remember my first day of school very vividly, mostly because it was a somewhat traumatic experience for my childhood best friend and I. I was dressed in an outfit that should have never been allowed on the market, but hey...it was the 80's and I can't be blamed. I wore a shirt and skirt set that was purple and black striped. It had a thin line of lime green around the edges and featured a scottie dog on the bottom of the skirt as well as the pocket of the shirt. Damn I was cool. My friend and I got all ready with our backpacks and lunch boxes (I had a California Raisins backpack) and our moms came out to take pictures. We waited for the bus and when it finally pulled up.....it was the short bus. Dang. Later we figured out that since we lived so close to the elementary school that really shouldn't have been given the privilege of riding the bus anyway so we'd better just appreciate the short bus.
#3. Who makes you laugh more than anyone in the world?
This is easy. The person who makes me laugh the absolute most is my sweet husband, DP. Not only is he innately funny, he has the capability to do what no one else in the world can do. He can make me laugh when I am in the worst of moods; he can totally turn my mood around instantly which makes me so very happy! He still has that "kid" side in him that makes him do the craziest things. He would kill me if he knew that I was posting this picture of him, but I couldn't help myself. This is last summer at the beach...a 25 year old man with my brother's boogie board from 1996. I love everything about him.
#4. If you could choose your own first name, what would it be?
This is a hard one! I was named during the first wave of Ashley's which means even though I was one of the first, there were many, many, many, many more to follow. There were at least three, if not more, Ashley's in every single one of my classes. I have always loved my name though - I just feel like it fits me. This is probably more because I never knew any different but I think I would keep the old Ashley thing going on. When I was little I wanted to be named Veronica for some strange reason but that has come and gone. I didn't answer this one to well but I would feel like a traitor if I went against my own name!
#5. If you could fly over any city in a hot air balloon, which city would it be?
I think I would fly over Maui. I chose Maui because it is where DP and I went on our honeymoon - it was fabulous! Beautiful beaches set right in front of mountains...I think it would be beautiful to see from the air. Wait...did I mention that I am deathly afraid of the idea of going in a hot air balloon? On one hand it seems like such a magical and beautiful experience, but on the other, it seems like the balloon would explode and send us to a horrifying end. I make myself laugh.
So there it is! And to think...nothing embarrassing was revealed except for maybe the short bus incident! So, who's next to play along? I would love, love, love to interview someone else so if you are brave enough, leave me a comment with your email address and I will send you five questions!
