In Which I am Interviewed by Becki  
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 post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.

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. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on and on ...

1. If you could magically change careers overnight, would you pick something different? Why?
This is a good question.  I am a Born Nurse, have always wanted to be a nurse, and it's still what I want to do... but if it meant I had a good, steady, enjoyable job right now?  Maybe.  There was a brief time in college when my heart desired a job writing for Entertainment Weekly, which still sounds great in the abstract.  Or I could be an art history professor, especially if my doctorate had been completed magically overnight too--I'm sure there are parts of that that would be fun.  Or I could be paid a living wage to tell people what they should read and then discuss it with them afterward, but I should probably keep this in the realm of semi-reality.  Wait, that's an English professor.  Okay, sure.  As long as I didn't have to teach the freshman survey courses.

2. If you wrote a book, what would it be about?
I would love to be able to write the quintessential summer camp book.  Or if so many people hadn't already written this book, I would write about my Summer in Tuscany.

3. What is your least favorite thing?

4. Do you like to travel?
More than almost anything.  Possibly more than anything.

5. What's your latest favorite cookie recipe?
I no longer have a reason to bake cookies, so I guess it would still be the raisin crisscross cookies I posted a recipe for a while back.

"...paid a living wage to tell people what they should read and then discuss it with them afterward" is generally what people think librarians do. Since my clientele is middle-school-aged, however, I am lucky to get, "It was OK," when I try to discuss the book with them afterward. (The Hunger Games has garnered the most enthusiastic responses this year--"This book was GOOD!"--but they still didn't want to discuss it.)

1. Where would you want to live, if you had to leave San Francisco?

2. What's something you wish you would have done differently in college?

3. Are you going to get any more tattoos? If so, what and where? If not, why not?

4. What's your favorite cookbook?

5. Do you like receiving gifts?
