In yet another attempt to avoid coming up with my own actual topics, I have accepted the “Interview Meme” gauntlet that was thrown down over at Ron’s place.
The deal is… Ron was interviewed by someone whose blog he reads and posted his answers along with the offer to interview other people, which I signed up for. So now, Ron is asking me questions (see below) and if YOU want to join this merry band of interviewing, you just have to say so in the comments and I will send you 5 wacky questions of my own devising that you can then answer on your blog.
Yes… I know you all already knew how this works, but I am a stickler for form:)
What inspired you to start your blog?
This is actually my third blog. I begain blogging… um… 2004? 2005? My first blog was completely un-anonymous. My name and picture were plastered all over that thing. Then also – I posted a lot of ranting and political stuff in those days. Those to factors combined to make me realize that anyone reading that blog (and I actually did have a pretty big audience because I was also a comment whore back then and signed up for all kinds of blog promotion sites, etc) could easily take offense at something I wrote and hunt me down and kill me.
So I started my second blog – which I fully intended to be anonymous, but this and that sort of thing happened, and my blog was eventually found by some relatives of mine, and the LAST thing I want is to have a blog where I can’t bitch freely about my family (which i still don’t do because I’m so mega-paranoid that someone might find it). So that was shuttered too
This blog was a second attempt at anonimity. I don’t think it would be impossible for someone who was really determined to find out who I am from this blog (especially now with the derby thing). But, hell… I don’t get all ranty anymore… and my huge paranoia keeps my blog relatively “personal info” free. So who’s gonna go to the trouble, I ask you?
What one Holiday tradition/decoration could you not live without?
Are there any hot, single, straight roller derby women in your league? If so my number is….
How did you hear about the Roller Derby and why did it appeal to you so much?
I believe from you blog that your line of work is in security, do you get to carry a gun? If so what kind?
What would be your perfect costume to where to DragonCon next year?
If I go… I am seriously considering going in full-on derby gear. (probably not the skates, though… I might die in those crowds).
If I had unlimited money / and or time / artistic ability? I would go as The Enterprise. That would be cool.
So there’s my Frost / Nixon moment… if you would like your own hard-hitting investigative meme… you just let me know.
