Another Interview

Another interview - this time by my friend Maria G. If anyone would like to be interviewed, just leave a comment like before.

What do you consider the best place in the area to get ice cream?
This one is easy for me. I think that the best place in the area to get ice cream in Findeisen’s. I know a lot of people out there are going to disagree with me, and maybe I only like them because of old memories, but it’s Findeisen’s.

Now that you are married, has anyone been pestering you about when you are going to start a family?
Only my mother-in-law, who on my wedding day looked at me and said “Nine months, One day.” My parents are very low key and in no rush to have grandkids. Other family members seem to be minding their own business.

What is your favorite kind of game: board game or card game?
I’m a huge fan of either, though some of my most favorite games are indeed card based. Skip-Bo, 45’s, Rummy 500, and Apples to Apples are all based on cards. Now I wanna play 45’s. I haven’t played it since Christmas 2005 with my parents and brother down in TN, where they probably have never even heard of the game.

What does your dream house look like? Any must-haves?
My dream house has 3-4 bedrooms, a finishable basement, a good-sized yard (big enough for a pool and space to have wiffleball/kickball/badminton games), and a farmer’s porch. Other than that I’m breezy about the rest. Those are really my only requirements.

Do you call your in-laws by their first names? If so, did you always feel comfortable addressing them that way?
Uh… is it weird that I don’t really call them anything? Steve's the same way with my parents too. Well, my mom anyways. My dad is Steve, so that's different. Too many Steves.

Side note: Please say a quick prayer for our fish Pinky who passed away this morning. She was a good fish and has now gone up to the big tank in the sky. R.I.P. Pinky, we'll miss your happy swimming in our tank. :(

I like Findeisen's too! I have the biggest craving to go there and get their peanut butter sundae. Mmm.

For the past year or so, I have been trying to get into the habit of calling my in-laws by their first names because calling them Mr. and Mrs. seems too formal. However, calling them by their first names seems too informal. I am having an easier time with my mother-in-law. It's weird with my father-in-law because he has the same name as my brother-in-law and then it gets confusing. I can see how Steve would feel awkward calling your dad Steve too.

Interview me when you have a chance! :)
