Mz. Booshay over at Quiet Life is playing the interview game. She has agreed to "interview" me, and I have agreed to post my answers here for everyone to read.
Then, if you would like to be "interviewed" by me, post a comment in the comments box saying "Interview Me!!!!" I'll come up with 5 questions for YOU, and you will post the answers on your own blog......
Here's my interview with Mz. Booshay:
1. Did you go to college? If so, where?
Sometimes it feels like I went EVERYWHERE. I started at the University of Texas in Austin, where I spent two years. I finished at McMurry College (now McMurry University), a small Methodist college in my hometown of Abilene, TX. It was like a trip back to the 1950s in some ways, but it was so FUN. After graduating with a degree in accounting (nevermind what YEAR), I went to Texas Tech University and got a Master's degree in accounting.
2. Why is Texas better?
Oh, honey, it's one of those questions you just can't answer briefly. #1, you can find it on a map--it's not a boring square state, or a teeny one you can't see. #2 Every kind of climate/food/ethnic group, etc. in the world. Other than skiing, if you can't find it in Texas, it ain't worth doin'. #3 The women. They can run a ranch and do stoop labor with painted nails wearin' mink coats. Oh, and they have big hair. I don't, but I wish I did. #4 The sky. Where I was raised, it's a giant turquoise bowl, from horizon to horizon. Don't fence me in, baby.
3. What book do you recommend to others the most?
To Kill a Mockingbird which I believe is the finest American novel ever written. It is certainly the truest Southern novel ever written. Dare anyone, anyone, to read it and not weep at the end when Scout walks Boo Radley home.
4. Do you have a pink flamingo on your front lawn?
Yes ma'am, I do. His name is Bob T. Flamingo, and his head bobs up and down. He came from First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX.
5. If you could magically appear in a movie, which one would it be and why?
Beauty and the Beast--the scene of them dancing in the big ballroom. Except I look hideous in yellow, so the dress would have to be another color--probably PINK! Besides, I always thought I'd look good animated! (Oh, and p.s.: I always liked the Beast best as the Beast, not the girlie man at the end. Go figure.)
OK, now anyone game to be interviewed by MOI?
