1. Favorite Musical Artist: My favorite has always been the band Led Zeppelin. I wasn't ever a stoner or devil worshipper; I just really enjoyed their music. My husband says that the reason he decided to go out with me was because he saw my cassette tapes in my car and figured I must be pretty cool.
2. Favorite Artist: I've never studied or invested or "got into" art. I just know what I like when I see it. My favorites are landscapes that look like you are going somewhere; down a path, on the road to a town in Italy etc. Take me away!
3. Favorite Blogger: I swear Elaine Manes makes me laugh in every post or comment she writes!
4. If you could meet anyone dead/alive who would it be/most interesting about them: I would like to have a long one on one with David Packard and William Hewlett from HP. I love their Rules of the Garage:
- Believe you can change the world.
- Work quickly, keep the tools unlocked, work whenever.
- Know when to work alone and when to work together
- Share - tools, ideas. Trust your colleagues.
- No politics. No bureaucracy. (These are ridiculous in a garage.)
- The customer defines a job well done.
- Radical ideas are not bad ideas.
- Invent different ways of working.
- Make a contribution everyday. If it doesn't contribute, it doesn't leave the garage.
- Believe that together we can do anything.
They make sense don't they?
5. What I wanted to be when I grew up: I actually wanted to be a teacher and a writer. College changed my mind. Funny how becoming a home stager actually led me to fulfilling my dreams... now I stage, train and write everyday!
6. Most interesting trivia I know: I may only be trivia to me but... I found out yesterday that the baby is going to be a girl!
7. What point in history would choose to live: I think that is so cool that we live in a generation that has seen the invention of the internet, DVR and so much more. But I think it would have been even more exciting to be witness to the first man in space and the invention of the TV.
8. Most interesting job I ever had: My previous life career was being the Manager of a children's toy store called Zany Brainy and Noodle Kidoodle. I hope some of you remember them. I loved my job more than anything else. My days were surrounded by toys that I grew up with, amazing new products, Puff the Magic Dragon playing on the stereo overhead and we had a theater that we played Disney and other movies from open to close. The biggest joy was seeing the innocent smiles on the faces of those kids when their Mom said "Yes". We suffered demise when Wal-mart started selling toys below cost one year... We couldn't compete, and so I moved on to this new stage of my life (pun intended).
