Interview with Erin

Lily of Lily Speak did this Interview meme and I wanted in on that. So I had her interview me, here it is:

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

3. You will update your blog 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.

1) I know you're a big Dave Matthews Band fan. What's your favorite song and why?
Oh man, I have to pick just one?? I don't know if I can! How's about I tell you about a few of them:
Crash Into Me - this has been my favourite from the start. Granted the lyrics if sung by anyone other than Dave would be a little creepy, but I think it's super romantic. Remember the video?? Beautiful! The lyrics "you wear nothing, but you wear it so well" are amazingly romantic, I think, they show true love and acceptance of a person. That would be one of the most fantastic pre and/or post sex complements a guy could give me.

Pig - I discussed here. "Wash out this tired notion that the best is yet to come" - it's all about how I want to be living my life, being able to seize the day and not waste it.
You Might Die Trying - I discussed this one here. It reminds me that if I want to change the world and make a difference I need to take action by getting off my butt and doing something, even if it is only something small, it's better than being frozen and doing nothing.
But there's Everyday, and Grey Street, and Tripping Billies... awe man!

2) Other than your parents' jewelry shop, what other jobs have you held?
I've had a few, here are my two most exciting/longest from the past:
I've been a camp kid since I was a young teen, starting as a CIT, then a counsellor and then senior staff. I miss K-Camp crazy amounts...

During university, I worked at the art gallery on campus, a little bit as a gallery attendant, but mostly I was in charge of contacting (or attempting to contact) all of the over 2000 artists whose work we had in our collection to get them to sign copyright forms thanks to Canada's new copyright laws.
And now, I work at the youth shelter.

3) What extracurricular activities and/or sports have you done/played?
I've never really been a terribly sporty girl. As a kid I tried ballet and figure skating, and failed miserably at both. When my Aunt and I both lived in London, I went to the flamenco classes that she taught. In elementary school and high school, I did Brownies and Girl Guides and Youth Group out of my church, and Drama Club out of my high school. In university, I volunteered with a fantastic organization called Best Buddies, and at a local elementary school in a classroom for kids with special needs. I also took sign language classes at the university.

4) Let's say you have the chance for a little threesome with two of your fave celebs. Who would you pick?
Dave Matthews.

Crap, I have to pick another? Hmm, perhaps Lee Pace of Pushing Daisies.

Or, if I could go back in time, Pierce Brosnan and Harrison Ford, my old man crushes. Heck, the back in time bit isn't completely necessary.

5) What was your favorite game as a child?
My sisters and I used to play Barbies all the time. We also played our share of hide and go seek. On camping trips, my family would always play Monopoly. With my friends, we played a lot of games in the pool, and we played boneyard in the neighbourhoods around our houses.

Alright, anyone who wants to be interviewed can leave me a comment!

I heart Lee Pace from Pushing Daisies. Why they had to go and cancel that show I'll never understand.
