Five Question Interview

Steve DeGroof has obliged my request for an interview and produced the following questions. I have added my answers.
 
1. What's the weirdest job you've ever had?
Greencard Coordinator. Actually it's the job I have right now. It is pretty weird and fairly rewarding at the same time, so I'd have to say I like it.

2. If you had the ability to travel anywhere instantly at no expense, where would you work/live/have lunch?
Work hours still in Cleveland (I mean, who cares, right?), after work hours wherever my boyfriend happens to be, and lunch in Switzerland. I think fresh mountain air would improve my day dramatically. Also, the contrast of going from Cleveland to Switzerland in the middle of the day would probably make every day about the coolest!

3. What ever happened to Noble?
Have not seen him since my last post about him. I'm not sure. Last month I worried about him and wondered if he was ok. I'd have to go after him to find him at this point. I haven't worked up the courage to call his number.

4. Given a choice, would you prefer to visit 1957 or 2057, and why?
1957 definitely. Because the exchange rate is better and so are the cars (!)

5. Two people stand back-to-back, then walk 30 feet, turn left and walk another 40 feet. How far apart are they?
Only as far as their hearts take them. JK. Uhm, this requires a formula that I don't remember any more. Better do a google search of triangulation. Ok, that wasn't it. How about simple trig? OH! Pythagorean thereom... cool... asquared + bsquared =csquared. And since these two people are making two conjoined triangles, I can just solve for 'c' on one triangle and double it. So, if a = 30 and b = 40, asquared = 900, bsquared = 1600, so csquared  = 2500. Squre root of 2500 = 50, so c = 50. 50 x 2 = 100. These two people are standing 100 feet apart; one in the bathroom and one in the living room.
 
I am also contractually obligated to post the following rules:
1. If you want to be interviewed by me, leave me a comment saying "Interview Me".
2. I will respond by asking you five questions of my choice.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to my questions.
4. You will include these rules, and offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Is this open to the hungry, yearning to breathe free, huddled masses who don't maintain blogs? (OK, I did have a big sashimi lunch, and my cubicle isn't really the same thing as huddled, but I've been fighting this bug for a week now and I really am yearning to breath free)

Thank, sis.

) Have you ever ridden in a helicopter and if so, why? No, only because I'd rather spend that money on wine, women or song.
2) Who do/did you get along with better, your mom or your dad? Mom, although I think it's only because I'm hardwired that way, and my dad was so quiet.
3) Favorite animal?
Horse, in particular my mustang.
4) If you were forced into a fistfight on the street with a scrappy neo-nazi, how do you rank your chances, assuming neither of you has weapons?
I don’t want to hurt people, and I don't do fistfights, you can get your hands hurt that way. That said, I'm more of a knee-kicking eyeball-gouging throat-striking kind of guy. There will probably need to be two ambulances.
5) Did you get married yet? : )
She asked me about food and music again last night - are you interested in coming to the beach and being my best(wo)man?

k_sra:

1) Vanilla or _____?
2) You’re 20 foot underwater, only ten seconds away from wrestling a lobster out of a crack and you realize you will also run out of air in ten seconds. What do you do?
3) You see [normzone] trading blows with a scrappy neo-nazi on the street. Neither of them has weapons. You decide to…
4) English, Western, or Aussie?
5) You want to make a drink and all that’s in the house is vermouth and brandy. What do you do?

Oooh! Questions for ME!
1)Vanilla or DIE! (seriously, i don't understand the question. is this referring to ice cream, potpurri or rappers?)
2)I would wake up and say, "What they heck was i doing wrestling a lobster 20 feet underwater? what weird dreams I have!"
3)I decide to pull up a lawn chair and some popcorn and watch the show! jk. I'd scream my lungs out. one of the only advantages to having a woman's voice is that it tends to disrupt the gentlemen in such foolishness and draw a crowd. then i'd call the cops.
4)Scottish
5)I ask my boyfriend who probably knows some clever drink you can make out of that crap. if he's not there, i drink a glass of tap water.

Thanks, Norm! : )

Your lifestyle or taste determines what the focal point of your living area is. If you have a fireplace, you can rearrange your furniture around it. Or if you have a piano, and this is the focal point of your living area, your furniture could be set around it. When rearranging your furniture, also consider traffic in your Living Room Decoration area. It is always good to arrange furniture in off-square angles. This makes the room warmer and more casual. http://living-room-decoration.blogspot.com
