Round 2! What do you want to know about me?

Since coming home from NYC and BlogHer, I have written only 3 blog posts - one about BlogHer, one about the fear of flying, and one about summer.

I've started and saved about 10 blog posts that I need to return to.

I'm suffering from some sort of inability to blog, which probably has more to do with the fact that I've been pretty busy - busy with my job, busy with my children, busy with soccer tournaments and end of summer festivities like BBQ's, dinners with friends, last dips in the pool and the Greek festival, as well as getting things organized for back-to-school. (Can you believe summer is really almost over? I want to cry!)

Regular blogging will resume after this - but I thought now would be a great time to do a round 2 of Ask Me Anything, especially since I was asked.

So here you go - I turn the floor over to you.

Feel free to ask me whatever you want and I promise to reply in an upcoming post. I want to say nothing is off-topic, but I'm kind of scared. Ah, whatever. Ask away!

What is your burning question for me?

Are you dying to find out what I consider more painful - a brazilian wax or labour?

How it felt to sit in Mary Hart's chair when I interned at Entertainment Tonight?

What my scariest moment was when I lived in D.C.?

Do you want to know what my top 5 favourite TV shows are?

Or who makes my favourite jeans?

Want to know why I never say 'no' to my children?

Or why subway rides in NYC can be scary?

Who my favourite bloggers are?

I'd love to hear your questions, so go ahead... I'm ready!

okay, here goes...

i ask this question in good faith.

your take on this will be interesting since you reside in Canada.

what's your stance on the proposed mosque in Manhattan near ground zero?

Marinka said...

Who is your favorite actress? Which actress can't you stand?

oh, and what is the one question that you hope no one asks?

Leslie said...

Asking a question that I ask myself every day "What draws you to shop as much as you do?"

Suzanne said...

In today's world, what do you think is the SINGLE most important thing you can teach your children?

(Notice I capitalized "single", lol, because I know you could go on forever!)

Jen said... hard!

How about: best and worst experiences blogging, tweeting, etc? Any negative encounters? Best connections or favourite opportunities, moments that arose from blogging?

Or: tell me how you can walk around craving a salad and a workout, simultaneously. I'm not kidding when I say I've never been there, lol!

And what the heck do you do for work, anyway?

How's that?

aaaah, love this game :-) what? it's not a game? It's still fun though :-D

- what is the one thing you believe it's worth spending money on? what about the one thing that it definitely isn't worth spending a lot of money on?
- you must have seen that episode of friends where everyone compiles "the list". Who would be on your list? 6 names, in order of preference.
- as your birthday buddy, I'm almost obliged to ask: what do you REALLY want for your birthday this year? (and don't say world peace)

I am interested in your Mosque response LouLou and also want to know about the DC Scary Moment!! Love your blog and I am currently suffering writers block myself!! This was a great idea! :)

Theta Mom said...

How fun!!

I would ask: What was your worst/best experience while blogging?

Chelle said...

I love these types of posts! we go :)

~What do you like to do for "you" time at home? And lets say that the boys were away with your husband and you had, oh, 8 hours of peace and quiet. What would you do?

~What is one room in your home that you would want a makeover done on? Why?

~What's your favorite drink at Happy Hour? Or anytime for that matter ;)

xoxo & can't wait to read your answers!

Faiqa said...

Ok, why *do* you never say no to your kids? My interest is peaked.:-)

Avitable said...

Does the carpet match the drapes?

Oh wait, that's probably off limits.

How about, what is your favorite movie of all time and why? Porn doesn't count, so no "Good Will Humping" or "The Threesome Amigos".

Scary Mommy said...

Is Mary Hart as annoying in person as I believe her to be? Inquiring minds want to know.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Hmmm... Don't want to ask something boring or expected. So...

Would you ever consider having plastic surgery (cosmetic - not reconstructive) and if so, what would you do? And what would you never consider?

This is a good idea for a post. It's exactly the kind of thing I'd like to do since I have answers for pretty much any question. But I would worry that no one would ask me anything!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

These are always tough for it...
what is on your bucket list?

Anonymous said...

Why do you bring 2 glasses of water to bed with you. Why does one have to be small, the other big? Why must one be poured from the Brita and the other from the sink?

Love, your OCD stalker.

Muthering Heights said...

Life seems to be very busy for everyone this time of year! :)

Jen said...

Old movie, but...

What did you think of 'my big fat greek wedding' ?

Midwest Mommy said...

Do you paint your nails from left to right or right to left?

CaraBee said...

Do you change your purse to match your outfit or do you always carry the LV?

ModernMom said...

I'm late to chime in but I had to think about it!
You have a great following on both your blog and twitter. Do you find it easier to form relationships, get to know people on twitter or through your blog? Oh, and were you a blogger or a twitterer (is that a word) first?

I traveled a lot before we had our daughter and I have to admit that I was not overly thrilled when kids would get on the plane. I was always super nice and understanding though. The worse experience was a flight from US to Germany where a kid kicked my chair the entire 8-hour flight and even when I asked the parents to please ask their child to not kick my seat, the parent just looked irritated at me/ignored me. I think that wasn't so much a kid issue as an asshole issue.

Anyway, I am very understanding now after a 4-hour flight with a 1-year old to Puerto Vallarta where our daughter was pissed the whole time despite our best efforts. The worse part was that they thought we were going miss our flight and therefore gave up our seats so we ended up in first class. Imagine the looks on the people who paid top dollar for their seats when they see a tired 1-year old.

Here are all of the gory details if you are interested.

I hope this isn't too late...

1. Who was the most obnoxious celeb you encountered while interning for ET?

2. What are your 3 makeup case must-haves?

3. If you were told that you had to move out of Canada, which country would you move to? (US and Greece don't count. ;D)
