7 x 5 = 35, right?


When I posted my own interview questions and answers, I never thought I would have seven people asking to be interviewed, and I suppose I should be happy that more didn't volunteer! Thinking up 35 different questions wouldn't be easy for me, so that's why I have decided to do it differently. I will post some questions, and all seven of you can answer any five you choose - or more - if you want.



The people who asked to be interviewed (all in the sidebar) are:



Marty of Travelin' Oma

Awareness

Anna of Anna's Pic of the Day

Sage of Musings

Carolyn of The Ginger Quill

Maverick Moon

and Mar of Maremagnum



and here are your ten questions, which you can answer on your own blogs, or in my comments:



1. What one thing would you do differently in your life, if you had the opportunity to do it over?

2. How has your education had an impact on your life? Do you wish you had studied something else?

3. What do/did you look for most in a mate?

4. When interplanetary travel becomes available, where will you go?

5. Who do you think will win the next election?

6. What type of music would you write, if you could compose?

7. Is your blog read by your family members?

8. What one color do you never wear or have in your home? Why don't you like it?

9. If money were no object, what would be the first thing you would buy?

10. What experience in your life has enriched you the most?
11. If you were able to have dinner with any two people in the world, who would you choose and what would you ask them?
12. Tell me about something funny that happened to you.




Now, here is what you have to do after you answer the questions (and yes, I do realize that some of them are 2-parters):



1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your weblog 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.

Very interesting questions, kenju. I like the possibility of choosing from 10 questions! Now let me get a cup of coffee and do a little thinking :)

PI said...

Aren't you glad I don't do me mes?
I'm sitting in th gloom because MTL forgot to renew the bulb. So I'd better do it!

mar said...

Here we go, kenju! will post them tomorrow because it's almost 6pm over here and I have things to do.

3. What do/did you look for most in a mate? Sense of humor. But I didn't know this when I was dating... I have learned from Mr Mar through the years how important it is!! he is the one who can make me laugh in the most odd/sad situations.

4. When interplanetary travel becomes available, where will you go? Nowhere, kenju, I am a big chicken and wouldn't step into a space shuttle !

6. What type of music would you write, if you could compose? Relaxing, quiet music. Something to play during a nice dinner, the kind of music my neighbor plays on his piano (he is great!)

8. What one color do you never wear or have in your home? Why don't you like it?
Pink. I think I would look ridiculous in pink and don't have a daughter so I can skip having a room decorated in pink.

9. If money were no object, what would be the first thing you would buy? Health (beginning with perfect vision!).

This was fun!

A very clever way of tackling it! I had 5 people ask to be interviewed adn I must sdmit I recycles some questions themes but it was fun coming up with them for everyone :)

Ash said...

I would love to play! Altho, maybe it's the headache I have or a brain glitch, but I'm confused? I'll go re-read it!

I've been making up some questions for people, too, and our minds are running in the same direction, Judy...! GOOD QUESTIONS, to my way of thinking.

Leigh said...

Will you interview me?

Becky68 said...

I like your questions, I already did this though, with Janet from Fond of Snape asking the questions. The idea of choosing out of the questions you put up is a good one though!
Here from Micheles today.

Leigh said...

Marty: said...

I'll post my answers on my blog tonight, after I've pondered the questions. Thanks, kenju!
