I've been interviewed

I know I'm going a bit meme crazy at the moment, but they're like peanuts, once you've had one... and this is one is different, it's more interactive: it's an interview. And anyone can join in.

After reading her answers and asking very nicely if I could play too, the beautiful Annika has asked me the following:

1: Desktop or laptop?
I actually prefer my desktop computer. Its virtues are numerous: the machine is much more powerful, the screen is bigger, it's better for my posture. The only thing missing really is an ergonomic chair to go with it, but if I had that I doubt I'd ever leave my little office.

2: Gory horror or slapshot comedy?
Hmmm... I'm not too keen on contemporary slapstick, but I love the old stuff with Jack Lemmon, and of course How to steal a million, one of my all-time favourites. Gory horror would never enter my house. I'm too afraid. When I watched the Exorcist years ago I got so freaked out I almost needed to be exorcised myself afterwards.

3: Small apartment in a big city or big house in the far-off countryside?
Can I have both? Or a big apartment in the big city and little cottage in the far-off countryside? No? Ok, I'll settle for the big city and the small abode then, for the time being.

4: Which is, according to you, The Best Song Ever?
No, no, no, no... I can't answer this. There are so many songs that are associated with incredible memories, but whether these are great songs or not is debatable... I don't have a favourite song, different moods calls for different songs.

5: If you had one month left to live - and you know that for a fact - how would you spend it?
Oh, what a difficult question. I would like to make one request. Can it be a summer month please? Yes? Oh, thank you. In that case I would like to rent a big beautiful house by lake Siljan in Sweden and invite my dearest friends to come and stay. The house would have a team of chefs cooking all our favourite foods, and cleaning staff so we never would have to lift a finger. The endless days would be spent talking, laughing, eating, drinking, playing games, swimming, horseback riding, snoozing in hammocks under a tree... that sort of thing. I wouldn't want my whole family there the whole time, but because we would be in Sweden they could come and visit.

Do you want to play too? Great, these are the rules:
1. Leave me a comment saying "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will 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.

I should bite the bullet and be interviewed :) I'm always curious/afraid what the person will ask.

Vedrana M. said...

Vanessa said...

cool stuff!
I won't ask you to interview me though, as I just posted one of my own today and got a tad carried away (fancy that?!) so, ahem, I think I'll shut up now for a while :)

I have an interview at bleeding espresso. Sounds like I'm applying for work, eh?
If you did go to the lake in Sweden I would so want to be one of the friends you took along. Sounds deliciously fun.
I want the city apartment and the country property as well. It's good to dream anyway.

I like the answer to question 5. apart from horseriding, all of it sounds to me like the perfect way to spend one's last month on this grotty old world.

Karen Travels said...
