Because I am sitting here, in such sheer boredom, I have succumbed for the first time in my blogging life to using a stupid form thing. Someone did it to me.

Mock me. Ridicule me. Whatever. I'm game.

The Official rules of the Interview-Game

1. If you want to participate, leave a comment below saying "interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions - each person's will be different.
3. You will update your journal/blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions
6. I will answer reasonable follow up questions if you leave a comment.

1) Why the name "Porkchop"?

Because, I have porky chops. Or chubby cheeks. Or a delightful baby face, depending on who you ask. Actually, a blog reader coined that name, and it just kinda works, for now.

2) Being a young professional, what excites you most about growing old: retirement, wrinkles, or dealing with young whipper snappers trying to take away your job?

Being able to lord seniority over the young upstarts. Which I am right now. Retiring and eating twinkies for life.

3)What really ticks you off everytime?

Lots of things. That is going to be my next list, 100 Pet Peeves. Driving slow, people who pick their noses, cold french fries, lukwarm milk, guys who don't have enough spine to ask you out.

4) Who was your "first love", where is he now, and do you even care?

My first love, was Phillip... I don't remember his last name. Three years old, kissing in Sunday School behind the door. I was a real charmer and the boys loved me. Don't ask what happened.

In a very ironic twist of fate, I believe he is now joining the Marines, but am not sure. I haven't seen him since I was told it is not appropriate to kiss boys. You would be shocked to find out how long I believed that. And no, Porkchop The Cold Piggy Hearted does not care. Even at three, I would use little boy's hearts and toss them rudely aside once their kisses were depleted.

5) What is your theory on why the ozone layer is shrinking, and do you think Hollywood's captivation with hair gel has anything to do with it?

I believe that the ozone layer is shrinking in horror. Plain hair gel is the most disgusting thing next to mousse and of course, bear grease. Really, with all the lovely hair products we have now, MUST you use plain hair gel. Be creative. Think outside the box. Give yourself a swirly.

    PINK BIRKS!!! Ugh!

    1) I'd go barefoot rather than wear pink of anything.

    2) not a whole lot since I don't drink very often

    3) Yes, quite frequently in my younger years....been 3 years since my last slap but I kinda deserved it.

    4) Most Random thing? I drove to Chicago on July 3rd to surprise the girl I was dating. had a stuffed bear I knew she adored, and 3 dozen long stem red roses. Called her from my car on her street and asked her what she was doing and that she should look out her door as I stood there with the flowers and the bear.

    5) I have no idea, never thought about it.

  16. Blogger TSG 

    Yo, didn't you hear? Pink Birkenstocks are like the new Ugg boots. So HOT!!!

  17. Anonymous Anonymous 

    I'll stick with my sandal color Air Jesus'.

    But I must have missed that, though I'm sure Fashion Sarah would have updated me by now.

  18. Blogger QOS 

    mkay. i'm game. gimme some questions over the weekend.

  19. Blogger Semirrahge 

    Hehehe - Joy, that "gastly" outfit sounds pretty cool to me. I must not really know what argyle socks are. I don't know if I'd call it "chic", but "gastly"? Nahh.

    This is kinda a cool idea. Can you interview me?

  20. Blogger Semirrahge 

    Oh yeah - hair gel is for fags. Ok, so maybe that's an overstatement, but the fact that I have to wash my hair every day and use nice shampoo PLUS conditioner is pushing my tolerance for fashion. Admittedly, I like my hair, but I miss the days when I could simply leap out of bed and get dressed and ready to go in less than ten minutes.
    Long hair is cool, but it has its drawbacks. :)

  21. Blogger VDOprincess 

    Ok. I cave. Interview me.

This odd narrative is my life. I ended up in Pittsburgh, of all places--from the beach. I have no hobbies, other than cooking excessively and eating microwave popcorn. I enjoy shopping, the Food network, hiding the remote so the Food network cannot be turned off, find ethnic food stores and restaurants and reading voraciously. My life is decidedly pedestrian.

I worked in the car business where I was required to be ruthless and soul-less wench, which is when I started this project. Since then, I've kept it up because secretly, I've always wanted to join the military. Every male in my mother's family has joined and I quietly entertain thoughts of joining. I haven't yet and don't know if I ever will, but sending the troops cookies keeps me sane. it makes me think I still have a shred of human kindness left in my withering soul. it's a small way for me to salute the men and women who are brave enough to fight for freedom. And makes me feel like I'm contributing toward troop morale--even if I'm not. So if you want to help, send me addresses of troops you know stationed overseas. you may also contribute toward the cost of chocolate chips, but don't feel obligated, that link is here only by request.
