Question Time

Q&A Vicki Archer

1. Early Bird     2. Vintage     3. Snakes and Sharks… I am an Australian after all     4.  Buckingham Palace, MI6, The White House, The Vatican… I’m not going to waste a moment… and yes… power and politics    5. To Fly     6. 40th Birthday… I had the best party ever     7. My mother’s advice about marriage proposals… ‘Yes’ with no hesitation… a moment’s doubt and it’s a non equivocal ‘No’     8. Dancer most definitely… although I always wanted to be a rock and roll singer    9.  Not telling… far too embarrassing    10. Tall, blonde and handsome… Stylish, intelligent and funny… Well dressed, capable and caring… Can change a lightbulb, hang a painting and likes to shop… Will answer when asked, “tell me what you’re thinking”… Tells you he loves you, enjoys romantic movies and cooks… Is chatty but not too chatty… Shall I go on? I did ask for ‘perfect’… she says ‘tongue in cheek’… xv

This should be interesting. Here I go–am not going to read your answers first for fear of being infleunced! ;)
1) Definitely night owl–I love the promise that night brings
2) Vintage–since I was 15 years old
3) That I am going to end up a homeless person on the street
4) Oooh this is sooo shallow but the first thing that popped into my head? Anna Wintours office!
5) To heal–hunger, pain, fear all of it wiped away forever
6) *blushing*
7) I am not sure I have been given it yet…but certainly “Be true to yourself” also comes to mind
8) Both :) Bet you didn’t know that did you?
9) Ooh, see #8. I choked, completely while singing an aria that shall remain nameless and haven’t sung in public since. The pain of the embarrassment is still so fresh!
10) Doesn’t interest me. It is all of the imperfections that do. Bah, save for kind, funny and smart are a must!
Ok, time to hit “post” before thinking twice and I will look forward to all of the comments!

Great to see other girls love celebrating their birthdays alone and travelling, too. I went for Wien for my 30th, though not alone, because my friends got jealous and they joined me, but anyway the plan was alone in a foreign country. :)

1. Night Owl by inclination, Early Bird by necessity. 2. Always vintage. 3. I’m still afraid of going into my basement at night! 4. I’d sneak into the storage vaults of the Louvre or maybe the State Hermitage in St. Petersburg to see all the gorgeous art that’s stored away. 5. My super power wish has always been to fly, too! 6. An August evening in Edinburgh on a cobblestone street, spent with my husband, eating mussels and drinking whiskey at the Mussel Inn. 7. Never to compromise my own values. 8. Dancer, for sure, but I do sing all the time, much to everyone else’s chagrin! 9. I can’t pick just one. I taught college students for many years, during which time I had at least one embarrassing moment a day. :) 10. I love a man who’s smart, funny, and slightly mischievous. He must love animals, books, good food, and travel, and he must have a kind heart. He also needs to challenge me, keep me on my toes. Honestly, I think I married my perfect man! :)

These are fun questions, Vicki! Thanks. xo Gigi

This is fun, Vickie…here are my answers:

1. Early Bird (4:30AM every day!)
2, vintage
3. ROACHES….Texas has HUGE roaches.

4. There are so many ways I would be invisible…hard to narrow down. But, I think I would start in a wonderful coffee shop. Then head to the local museum of art…view the paintings until lunch, then lunch on the patio by San Antonio’s beautiful Riverwalk. I would also be taking pictures along the way. The afternoon would be spend shopping in boutiques and places I do not usually go. I would end the evening with a wonderful glass of wine and music.
A close second is an ALL DAY SPA!
5. Blink my eyes and the house would be clean!
6. Not going to discuss here :)!
7. Live One Day At A Time…Do Not Worry About Tomorrow
8. SINGER!!

Well, I answered all the questions and then my computer went wacky and lost the whole thing. Now, I have to run. Suffice it to say I’d fly, be a dancer, fear of heights and my perfect man would be a combo of Ryan Gosling, Brian Cox, Stephen Colbert (hot,brainy and funny). I enjoy reading everyone else’s. Thanks Vicki, for a fun post!

6. Can’t think of a night I’d like to live over..yet.. always anticipating the next great thing around the corner.
7. The best advice came from my mother on male friends: If he’s not the type of someone you’d want to like/date, don’t hang out with him. Because after enough time spent together, you’ll eventually FIND something to like about him.
8. Singer, definitely. Such a rare talent.
9. Most embarrassing moment.. So embarrassing I think I’m blushing now… So, so embarrassing. Maybe I’ll tell another day.
10: The ideal male is a great listener, strong but kind, quiet sometimes but not moody, a conversationalist but a good secret-keeper. He loves a good time, has style, and is well-read. He loves deeply & honestly.

Cheers!

1. Night Owl
2. Both. I admit it!
3. Hmm… but all my fears seem so rationale…
4. I’d want to go somewhere that you’re not supposed to be. And I don’t mean the Men’s Toilet (egads!) or somewhere that would end you up in prison for threatening any country’s national security. How about wandering around a major motion picture studio for a day — sit in on high-powered meetings, check out a closed movie set of the latest blockbuster, borrow fabulous props to make yourself a fabulous little retreat. Pick up scripts to read, play with all that Professional make-up, try on a few amazing costumes… And just to make it even more fun – maybe drop random notes as you go, mix up people’s lunch when they aren’t looking, and at that high-powered meeting? Hmmm… in fact, I may just have my own movie treatment going here, don’t you think?
5. The ability to control traffic! A little poof of air and cars magically part to let you through, lights change at your impending arrival, and you avoid accidents with flare.
6. Hmm… most definitely a night where I was foolish or ridiculous (or both)
7. It’s not enough to identify a problem. Be part of the solution.
8. Singer
9. That would be the time I was using alliteration to be clever… and accidently rhymed several very inappropriate words to express an idea to my Church youth group leader. Though we all laughed hysterically (thank goodness!), I’m still mortified when I think about it!
10. {sigh} I think I’m too busy drooling to think about this one. Dare I say Clark Kent in “Man of Steel”? (But now that I’ve gone back and read your lovely answer, V… well, I still probably wouldn’t change mine. The character development in that film is amazing and who doesn’t love a super nice guy with clear blue eyes and chiseled abs?)

It is so much fun reading everyone’s answers! Here are mine. :)

1. Neither, although I would prefer”Early Bird.” I am more of a mid-morning person.

2. More and more Vintage. I get these urges to frequent resale and antique shops!

3. Feeling helpless as the passenger in a car with a reckless/speeding driver. Actually, that is not really an irrational fear, is it? Okay, here is another. Always feeling that something is lurking in my basement.

4. The only reason that I could imagine wanting to be invisible would be to steal stuff without getting caught. Or see/hear something I should not. Bad karma!

5. To be like the genie in the bottle and grant everyone their wishes. Only without them knowing it was me!

6. Paris, May, 2002. Sigh.

7. Believe in yourself.

8. Both! Although I am quite a bit rusty at both nowadays.

9. When I was around 12 years old, my best friend made me laugh so hard that I peed in my pants. I mean REALLY peed in my pant. I a public park with a million people walking around. I still blush.

10. My husband is pretty close…

I love these question posts Vickie. Problem is I am doing it so late in the day probably no one will read my response. Oh well,,, Here goes. 1) Night Owl, lots of training being a Resident. You live on no sleep, lots of coffee, and try to act intelligent at 4 am and see patients at 8am the next morning as if you had a good nights sleep. 2) Vintage 3) Sending the wrong text/email to the wrong person. Not an irrational fear bc I have done it and it is AWFUL trying to explain why you said something you would have never said to the person who received the mail. 4) invisible in the Oval Office. 5) Telepathy would be my power.Life would be so much simpler if everything was transparent.6) Wedding night. I felt like I was the most beautiful woman in the world for 24hrs. I wore the most beautiful dress i would ever wear in front of the people who meant the most to me at that time, and the one man who meant the most to me couldn’t take his eyes off of me. 7) Make the most of everyday. Do not wait for tomorrow or next week or next year to enjoy your life…8) Dancer. 9) Due to a home perm gone wrong at my mother’s hands during my junior year in college, I had to wear a wig. At a party after a basketball game, members of the band I performed in went to a party. Thank God it was dark, bc a male friend grabbed my hand to dance and my head went one way and my body went the other and I felt AIR! OMG!!!! My wig went flying across the room. My very very best girl friend saw what was happening and reacted faster than Wonder Woman. She grabbed the wig in midair, put it in her pocket and threw her hat on my head. Believe it or not NO ONE NOTICED! Since we had just come in the door most people thought I had I come in with the hat on. I was beet red. I Excused my self from offer to dance and rushed to the bathroom with my friend. On went the wig, off went the hat, and at that age we laughed till we cried, and went out and enjoyed the rest of the party. It seems like it was yesterday.10) My current SoulMate. When the going gets tough he will fly right, ie he has good character. I have found he is my best friend, best father to our kids, and great family member to our families.

Vicki you are incredible, bc I have not told this story to anyone including my husband, and I shared it with you and your blog following. I hope it helps anyone who thought their embarrassing wasn’t so bad after all after reading mine!

4. Sitting in a cafes and bars all day watching and even better…listening to people… ha…I do that now but i think it would be even more fun invisible (or watching my “cleaners” pretend to clean my house!)
5. Being able to stay up late! Oh I wish I didn’t fall asleep at 10:00pm…
6. The last time my family were happily all together…many many years ago.
7. Mediocrity sucks! Be special!

A late reply but I wanted to say how much I enjoyed your questions. In fact I have forwarded them on to my husband and children and am eagerly awaiting their responses. It may be quite revealing. I am going paste them into my scrapbook and at sometime in the future I will read them again…it will be interesting to see how much we have changed…or stayed the same.
