I wake up, put Daphne’s collar on then go pee. Then I head downstairs, get my newspaper out of the mailbox and let Daphne out to pee. I’ll get myself breakfast (cereal or a bagel) and read the paper while I eat. Then it’s time for blog reading and freelance work, mixed in with TV watching. I’ll eventually shower, get dressed and ready for Job #1. Then I’ll leave for work at 12:30 p.m. for my 1 p.m. start. I’ll work until 5 p.m. and come home. If I don’t have to work at Job #2, I’ll eat dinner with Kyle and just relax for the evening. If I do have to work, I’ll eat, get changed into my work uniform, and head out the door around 6 p.m. I’ll work until just after 10:15 p.m., then I’ll come home, check my email/Facebook/Twitter one last time and then hop into bed with Kyle.
2. What’s your favourite reality tv show?
3. What motto do you live by?
“Treat others the way you want to be treated.” I think I’ve been told that since I was old enough to understand what it means.
4. If you knew could you try anything and not fail, what dream would you attempt?
I’d be a doctor and save lives.
5. What was your first job?
I had TWO first jobs! One was at a little touristy gift shop that sold semi-precious stone carvings and other things tourists loved. (They were Canadian themed – How could they not love them?) The other was at a Chinese restaurant where I bussed tables. Out of the two, I think I liked the bussing job better, even though my feet ached by the end of the night. My co-workers were more fun to talk to.
6. What is your current job?
Funny, I currently have two jobs as well. Or three. Job #1 is at a newspaper and Job #2 is at a grocery store. I guess Job #3 is my freelancing work.
7. What would you call yourself if you could choose your own name (and you cannot pick the one you already have)?
Gertrude, because I’m a cranky old woman on the inside.
8. What musical instruments can you play?
The piano. That’s it. Although we were taught you to play the recorder (SO annoying!) and the ukulele in elementary school. (Did anyone else??)
9. Is it easier to forgive or forget?
Forgive. Somethings are just too big to forget.
10. What is one food you’d never want to taste again?
Liver. I kid you not. When I was in Grade 8 or 9 my brother and I were forced to eat it. We weren’t allowed to leave the dinner table until it was all gone. My mom felt so bad for me and my brother. Worst dinner of my life.
