My Expat Interview

If you haven't been over to see Expat at That Damn Expat, you must get your sweet ass over there now! Girlfriend is funny, insightful and needs our support now that she is getting marriage in less than 2 weeks and has the SIL from hell. I feel a kinship to her.

She got a fabulous meme and sent it over to me. Here's the 411:

Here are the rules:
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.

And here are my questions:

I'm a very new reader so please tell me about yourself, in five sentences or less. I am a loud, outspoken,"guys-gal" that likes sports, drinks beer and might occasionally belch within hearing of others. The girly-girl side of me requires a shoe collection that would make Imelda Marcos proud, I have a standing appointment for a mani/pedi every two weeks and I love to sit and chat over a glass (or five) of wine. I can say blow job without making a face and I'm not embarrassed to admit that I have googled "Jessica Alba naked pictures" to see if she really looks that good. I am choosy about those I associate with, but if I choose will have a loyal, loving friend for life.

If you had to get rid of all your shoes except one pair, which pair would you save? These. (Sorry it's so fuzzy)

I got them at a designer clearance sale for $10.00. I've never seen anything like them. The heels are a bit shorter than I'm use to (under 4 inches), but women fall all over themselves when they see them. I've never received so many compliments!
What is the one thing you love the most about yourself? My unflappable ability to digest sensitive information. A friend can tell me just about anything and I will accept it and try to understand. TH says that I'm too PC and a bit naive. But, people will tell me their most precious, dangerous secrets and it doesn't change how I feel about them. If they're not hurting anyone, it's just another interesting thing about them.
What is the one thing you like the least about yourself? My total lack of self esteem. It fucks with my life sometimes and makes things very difficult.
I see you love Sex and the City. Which character is most like you? I LOVE Sex and the City. (In fact, I'm watching a rerun right now). I would say that I'm most like Samantha. I am very free-thinking about sex. BTH (Before TH), I was a little trampy. I love crazy fashion and have strong opinions.
There, I have successfully completed the interview. Is anyone game? Do you dare to offer yourself up to me and my crazy ways? Comment away!


  1. Very interesting!!!! I love SITC, too! :)

  2. Great interview! (and I'm not just saying that because I was a part of it)
    Those are some smokin' shoes! How can you have no self esteem? Just walking in those shoes would build mine up!
    Thanks for the lovely words. I'm blushing here.

  3. Kat: Can't wait! Email me your email address at I don't know how I'm going to keep it at five questions! You're life it soooooo interesting.

    That damn expat: Thanks!!! Those shoes do help the self esteem. I have some leopard print lace up ankle boots with 4 1/2 inch heels that help too. Of course I would give you some love and I'm so glad I found your blog!

  4. Great interview! Those shoes make my feet hurt. Seriously, I'm intimidated by fancy shoes....even if they did only cost $10 (great deal, btw!). I would say I'm a Samantha too, but like you, a Samantha who burps and watches football and hockey.

  5. Oh crap, do I dare? Interview me!

  6. Nice interview. You just created a lot of work for yourself, girl. I'm game. Interview away!
