Angella, the blogger behind Dutch Blitz posted this interview-type post on her website yesterday and I signed up to have her send a few questions my way.  Here is what she came up with:

1.  You are expecting your first baby!  Do you have any big fears, or are you just excited about the whole process?
So far, the only fear involved in my pregnancy has been OH MY GOD, WHAT IF I NEVER POOP AGAIN.  Outisde of that, I’ve been very, very excited.  And why not?  Soon, I’ll have a cute little bundle of digestive processes and the ultimate I-carried-your-child-for-nine-months trump card.

2.  Why do you blog and what got you started?
I have actually been blogging off and on for eight years.  I got started because I was completely incapable of withstanding the peer pressure.  Blogging is pretty addictive, but as I grew and changed, I also became very uncomfortable with the same audience knowing EVERY mistake I had ever made in the various phases of my life.  I started this website because I missed the community and I wanted to keep some sort of written account of my life for my children.  I figure the poor buggers I pop out of my womb are going to be subjected to all of my mistakes first-hand anyway.

3.  You live in SoCal!  My dream place to live (Sigh).  Do you love it there, or would you like to live elsewhere?
This is a trick question.  I would LOVE to live somewhere else, maybe somewhere like France or Denmark or Madagascar, but we made the decision to live here because both Donald and I grew up around here and both of our families are pretty well-entrenched in this area.  We always say that someday we’ll buy a French villa, but to be fair, we also say we’ll do the dishes TONIGHT and it never happens.

4.  If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Mongolia, hands down.  I saw a documentary on Mongolia once and it looked a little too cold for me, but it was BEAUTIFUL.  And I would also like to see Wales sometime.  Maybe I would see Wales before Mongolia, based purely on the fact that I could probably communicate my need to find a bathroom a little bit easier.

5.  Who is your biggest celebrity crush?
Jude Law!  *drool*


If you, too, would like to be interviewed, the rules are:
1.  You need to post a comment or send me an e-mail letting me know that you’re interested in playing along.
2.  Shortly thereafter, I will send you an e-mail with five questions of my choice.
3.  You will then update your blog with your answers to the five questions.  You will, of course, include an explanation of the interview and offer to send questions to your commenters.
4.  When others comment on your post asking to be interviewed, you, well…I’m sure you can figure it out =)

    I’m glad you found me too!

    We have loved our Fuzzi Bunz.  We only have mediums and my daughter (19 mos) has outgrown them, but they are still in excellent condition for our son!

    I plan to have a carnival “diaper chatter”—next Thursday, come on by.  Hopefully some mommy bloggers will participate and tell us about cloth diapers, and their experiences with diapering!

    Hi Sarah…

    It’s so cool that you want to go to Mongolia.  I have been thinking the same thing.  I went to a Mongolian film at a film festival a couple of years ago and was intrigued.  And then I saw the movie “Mongol” (about Genghis Khan) and was so impressed at the beauty of the landscape. 

    I have been to Wales and it is very lovely, but I think that Mongolia would be more awesome.

    Also, to answer your question, I have three kids.  Adam is 24 and doing a Ph.D, in Neuroscience at UCSD.  Bonnie is 22 and teaching English in Japan.  And Ross is 21 and a junior at Oregon State.  And they ARE great kids.  (of course, I am their mom)

    Mmmm. Jude Law. He’s the reason I could watch The Holiday over and over and over again. Yum.

    I sell French villas and my husband rents them, so if I can ever be of any service, let me know!;-)
