2:20 with Steph!

1) You can invite three people, dead or alive, to a dinner party. Who would they be?

(photo used with Steph's permission. Actually, it was her idea!)

My maternal grandparents, both of whom passed away far too early.

The third? Maybe my father.

2) Parallel park or drive around the block?
I learned how to drive in my dad's three-quarter ton pick-up truck modified for off-roading. In the words of my Young Drivers of Canada instructor

"If you can parallel park that, you can parallel park anything!"

3) Which would you prefer: a dozen roses or a box of chocolate?
ALWAYS roses...preferably orange ones.

4) What's the most unusual thing you carry in your bag or purse?

In celebration of Chinese New Year, a little boy I know gave me a lucky red envelope. I keep it tucked away in my wallet.

5) MySpace or Facebook?


6) Ultimate Travel Destination:

For a weekend: Ottawa. Far off destination: Greece.

7) What do you do when no one's watching?

That all depends on WHO I'm with...and that's all I'm saying!

8) Favourite television show (either currently on the air or off):

I loved Street Legal. I am currently in withdrawals over 24. And of course, The Hour.

9) Vancouver Island or Prince Edward Island?


10) At the movies: butter or butter topping?

The real deal...butter. Layered so it is dispersed throughout the bag.

11) Can you change a tire?

YES! And the oil, air filter, and if need be, also the serpentine belt! I also pump my own gas and put air in the tires. This is what happens when parents raise their daughters to be capable and self-reliant.

12) What's your favourite thing to do on a rainy day?
Sleep or read.

13) Phone, text, or email?

Without a doubt, email. No one ever answers the telephone anymore thanks to answer machines. Texting just takes too damn long.

14) Poutine: gift from the gods or what the hell were they thinking?

I like french fries and cheese, but not together. I'm not a big fan of gravy. For me, it's a little of both.

15) Favourite season:

Autumn. I live in the country where the fall colours are simply stunning.

16) Favourite cartoon character:

Charlie Brown.

17) Truth or dare?

18) Have you ever sent yourself flowers?
No. Who does that?

19) Ginger or Maryann?

Neither. Refer back to my answer for question 11.

20) Can you roll your tongue?



Dave I said...

Ok but I'm only going to say this once so pay attention.

Maryann over Ginger, but the real answer is Bailey Quarters.
Betty over Wilma, but that Daphne just knows how to work it. Sayin'

But lets face it way out infront by miles is,,,drum roll,,,,, Sue Johansen!!!....Sorry B....LOL

Dave I said...

With a little further thought I find the real dilemma is between Bruce McCulloch and Dave Foley( in Drag) Now thats tough... I think I'll leave that one for you guys....

Barbara said...

re: Gilligan's Island, Who is Baily Quarters?

Re: The Flintstones, Daphne from Scooby Doo?

Neither Bruce not Dave in drag appeal to me...sorry.

And if you enjoy Sue Johansen it's ok with me.

Tracy said...

Bailey Quarters... From WKRP in Cincinnati - Holy blast from the past. I loved that show. I bet you're not the only one Dave - lots of guys would rather her over 'Jennifer'.

Jenuine said...

Ditto Steph! Learned to p-park w/ my Dad's Monte Carlo. Awww, and I love that about your red envelope.

Great job on the 2:20 graphics Mich.

carol s said...

Really enjoying the 2:20!
Great job as always, ladies!!
: )

Janna said...


LOL Did you pick PEI because you've never been to Vancouver Island!??!?!

Cause I would of picked Vancouver Island over PEI!!!!

Tracy said...

I love the comment that if you can parallel park that, you can parallel park anything. I learned to drive in a crappy yellow Chevette - consequently, I break into flop sweat if I have to P-park. ;)

Reminds me of my favourite line in "Dodgeball" If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.

Thanks Carol for reading! :)

Jenuine said...

Thank you JANNA!!!!
Was going to say it, but figured it would've been taken as biased.
; P

carol s said...

I've visited both Islands and I guess it all depends on what you consider beautiful... lol

If endless sandy beaches are your thing, I guess PEI may win that one, BUT I absolutely love the BC landscape!!

That bit about Steph's handiness is NO exaggeration. A few years ago she lost a diamond stud down the sink at work and took apart that j-shaped pipe to get it back. Miss Handygirl. She knows about alot of stuff.

Lisa said...

Great job on the 2:20 ladies..
Oh, Steph I now know who to call if I get a flat

D. said...

With respect to:

Answer 7: That one made me blush a little.

Answer 11: Steph should have mentioned her recent foray into roofing.

Answer 12: And????

Steph A. said...

PEI is all about Anne of Green Gables. 2008 marks the 100th anniversary of a book that has stood the test of time. Plus, the PEI tourism ads make it look just so appealing. Sorry

Tracy, I love that movie! Contrary to what 'some' say (those evil anti-dodgeball advocates who claim the game encourages violence), dodgeball prepares youngters for the real world. If you don't keep your eye on the ball, someone will always be ready to knock you out of the game. It's all about self-preservation.

Ah yes, the infamous earring down the sink adventure. I remember that one well! ;-)

Thanks Carol S. & Lisa.

D. ~ :-) You make me smile. Goof.

Dave I said...

Do you do dry wall Steph?
