In today's edition of 2:20,
Barbara answers Steph's questions...

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Q: A walk in the snow or a walk in the rain?

A: Fresh snow so I can make a new path.

Q: Board games or card games?

A: Whatever you want to play.

Q: Body art...yay or nay?

A: The human skin is not a canvas as far as I am concerned.

There is no artist in the world who's art I want on my skin... so Nay I guess.

Q: Roller coasters...the best amusement park ride ever or

an accident waiting to happen?

A: The best!!

Q: During a thunder and lightning spectacular do you watch

as if it were a movie or hide your head under the covers?

A: I watch on the porch if I have one.

Q: Travelling across Canada...plane? train? or automobile?

A: I think I would like to drive across it once...then maybe take a small plane back.

Q: From which 'celebrity chef' would you want to take private culinary lessons?

A: I just got the Food Network...Jamie Oliver.

Q: Have you ever wished upon a star?

A: Yes. It works... everyone should try it.

Q: What is your favourite song lyric of all time?

A: Joni Mitchell sang about clouds....

"It's cloud illusions I recall I really don't know clouds at all".

Q: Haggis...a Scottish delicacy or the food of Satan?

A: Never tried it.. can't judge. I think Satan would eat chocolate...

Q: What makes you the happiest?

A: Lack of things to make me sad I guess...

Q: Wax museums...really cool or just plain creepy?

A: I have never been to one but it would be cool to go once.

Q: At the movies is your snack of choice popcorn or nachos?
A: A small popcorn, and small drink.

Q: Live music or live comedy?

A: Love live comedy and it's usually cheaper than live music so
that's it's edge. But it's a close one.

Q: Elvis Presley...dead, alive or who really cares?
A: If people remember him and love him, he still lives on.

Q: If you won a large sum of money,
what would be the first thing that you'd buy?

A: A toy company.

Q: Who has had the greatest influence on your life?

A: My family.

Q: Ghosts...fact or fiction?
A: Love ghosts! But who knows for sure?

Q: What was the last thing you "Googled"?

A: Canadian Tire locations.

Q: As the Barenaked Ladies' song ("If I Had a $1000000") asks
"haven't you always wanted a monkey?"

A: I did want one as a child but i got over it.

Yikes...I can see why!

That is a scary wax figure!

A toy company???

Tracy said...

Monkeyyyyyy! That kind of action would keep me awake at night. I can now add monkeys to the other things I fear - mimes, clowns and crocs.

Barbara said...

Yup a Toy Company... then I can bring fun to kids, give people employment and do something creative with the money.
I would probably call it Tic Tac Toys... Think I could get Kate Kelton to be the spokesperson?

Body art can be quite beautiful. The problem is that it is so permanent. Our tastes change over the course of our lifetime, and so do our bodies. What looks attractive at the age of 20 might not look so good in our 50s. Today's rosebud might be tomorrow's palm tree ...

Dave I said...

Trish you have a regret?
