I signed up to be interviewed by the lovely, talented miss brookem, and because I love a good q&a session, or if we're being honest a good TMI session here it goes.

1- What is something about you that doesn't get much airtime on your blog?
Probably my job. I don't really talk about it much, as this blog is semi anonymous, and I have a weird fear of ya know, loosing my job a la Dooce & not having any income. Which would lead to many bad things & that's not cool.

2- Would you rather win a free, all expense paid trip to any destination you choose, or a free shopping spree to your store(s) of choice?
I know this may come as shock to most of you, but I have never ever been on a plane - ever in my life. Shocking I know, but my idea of vacation is the Jersey Shore - which isn't great. It's actually downright sad. So I'd have to say all expensive paid trip to.....hmmmm - that's tough. Greece probably or Africa, or Australia or maybe Ireland. You know, because I'm not picky or anything.

3- What's your favorite way to unwind?
Magazines. I have a ridiculous obsession for all magazines. Gossip, Fashion, Home, Cooking - it's pretty bad actually. I think I've single handidly supported Conde Nast this year.
Me and the mailman have a love/hate relationship because of this. It's gotten to the point where he doesn't even try to fit them all in our eensy teenie box anymore. He just leaves them outside now.

4- Who is a musician that you are currently digging?
Oh my GOD there are so many!! This week, I've gone pretty old school - I've been listening to a lot of Third Eye Blind and Biggie - weird combo right? I think it's all those commericials for that new movie I've been seeing (Notorious) but I've been rocking out big time to B.I.G. (I didn't mean for that to sound as corny as it did, but I digress).
Also, Ray LaMontagne who I adore, Jack Johnson, Tristan Prettyman, Pink, Missy Higgins, Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift are some of my currents on constant repeat. And don't judge Taylor, I know she annoys a lot of people - but really you gotta give her props. I mean who writes a song about Tim McGraw? Love her.

5- What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Wow - this is really hard. It's only three words, but I'm stumped. I'm trying to think how my girlfriends would describe me.....
Emotional - for sure. I wear my heart on my sleeve - I cry over everything. I realize this may make me seem a tad unstable - I'm not (at least I don't think) but really I just like to cry.
I'm sappy. Commercials, movies, babies, songs - they all do it to me.

Unorganized - this isn't one of my finer traits, if only you saw my bedroom right now you would know why. It drives my husband crazy, it's a running joke around here if something goes missing, I moved it & if you wanna find it you have to think like I would. I'm trying - really I am. This is the year that's I'm gonna get better. Maybe. But don't hold your breath.

Loving - As emotional as I am, I'd like to think I love just as much - sometimes too much, which at times can be my downfall. I love with my whole heart, my whole self. It's gotten me hurt at times but I really wouldn't have it any other way.

So now that I spilled my deep dark (not really) secrets.... if you'd like to play along, just follow these instructions:
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. Be sure you link back to the original post.
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.
