Yes, I know I look a bit weird, but I was looking into the sun!
The other day as I was driving back from PE to school, the girls in the front wanted to do an interview with me. Well, that was fine with me and I even decided to answer truthfully (I have been known to tell children I was related to Santa Claus and that I was 734 years old). The first few questions were asked by one girl and were about my name and my age. And then she didn't know what to ask anymore. Fortunately there were several other little girls who did. So, here are some of the questions I got:

What is your name? Mara
How old are you? 39
Do you have a husband? No (even in this day and age, that is usually one of the first questions children ask)
What is your favourite colour? Pink for a car, yellow for flowers, blue for sweaters
What is your favourite music? Dolly Parton (they didn't know who it was, but the teacher was going to show them later)
What do you do when you are not working? I watch television or films or I spend time on the internet
What is your favourite film? Well, anything Christmassy
Do you watch Christmas films in the summer? Of course, if it is really hot, a nice wintery film might help cool me down

When we had arrived at school, I asked them whether I would now be in the school paper and they said no! Hm...


  1. Well, kids are unthankful ! Now that they know EVERYTHING about you, it's not even published ! a shame !

  2. Now that's a crying shame!

  3. Interesting questions. So were they saying you were not interesting enough to make it into the paper? I love Christmas movies all year long.

  4. At least they were honest about the school paper. :)

  5. You look awesome for 734!

  6. Well, if you like Dolly Parton's music, you are going to fit in just great in Alberta! Yee-haw, and all them thar cowboy noises. LOL

  7. Kids are cute (sometimes)
    Im sure it was fun to answer

  8. You forgot 'yellow for curtains'
    And pink for a car? Mara! I'm shocked.

    Hey, I'm pretty sure I have a Christmas movie on DVD that you don't have! And no... it's not a family production.
    It's a Phineas & Ferb Christmas movie. Very funny too. But since we have completely different tastes you'll probably think it's a stupid and not funny at all. LOL


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
