Grace's Interview

Ruth interviewed my friend Grace, and since I have been somewhat remiss in posting recently I said Grace could interview me. So here are her questions:

1. If you personally could change one thing about our country what would it be? Why? I would change the sense of entitlement people seem to have. The country was founded on people who wanted to make a better life for themselves and their families and were willing to work for it. People joined the military to defend the country and everything it stands for. Today, people are getting all give me, give me, give me. They want everything handed to them on a silver platter without having to put out any effort on their part. Someone has to pay for everything that the government hands out. I have a lot of family in the military. Yes, if anything happens ( I did lose one cousin) it really sucks. But it was their choice. I am so sick of people who join the military for free education and free training etc etc and then are all shocked if they are required to serve in a potentially dangerous situation. There is no free ride people, stop whining! I'm not saying things are perfect- access to healthcare and education- but even then it is people in the middle working class that get screwed. The slackers get it handed to them and the people with money can buy what they want. I'm just sick of all the slacker leaches and it's only going to get worse.
2. If you and Curtis could go away for 10 days starting tomorrow, where would you go at such a last minute?
Ok, its winter, that narrows it down a bit. In the middle of the winter if cost were no option I'd have to go with skiing in the Italian Alps.
3. If you Found 50$ on the ground right outside your favorite yarn store, would you go shopping or would you save it for a bigger purchase either online or at that store?
I don't ever spend money I just find on the ground. If it isn't possible to figure out who lost it, I donate money I find. I have donated to Hope House, The Interfaith Food Pantry, the animal shelter in East hanover with found money.
4. If you could have pets would you? Absolutely. I want a cat so bad it isn't funny. And either an Australian shepherd, a black labradoodle or a rescued mutt.
5. If you could meet any author in the world, who would you pick? This is actually the hardest question. I would have to say either Stephen Hawking or Brian Greene. Probably Brian Greene. Don't know if I'm bright enough to carry on a conversation with Dr. Hawking. but I would love to discuss cosmology and string theories with Greene. Sorry - I know most people would go with fiction.

For those of you who might want to be interviewed, here are the directions:

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.

I've gotten rid of the word verification for posting comments. To tell the truth, I have trouble reading the new stuff they are using. Feel free to disagree, but spammy or obnoxious comments will not go up.
