Normally I would run the questions from Friday's Feast, but they haven't come out yet, so I'm going to answer questions from my the voices in my head.
So, Kate. What are you wearing right now?
What is this, an AOL chat room? Considering I'm at work right now, I'll probably be disappointing you with my answer. Nonetheless, I've got on my blue jeans, a black tee with a bit of lace along the bottom, some black slides and my glasses. Nothing really racy here. You caught me on an off day, sorry.
Here's a soft ball for ya. What's your favorite kind of candy?
Oooh! I get so excited about anything toffee. I am crazy about chocolate covered toffee, whether it's in ice cream, cookies or just by itself. In a vending machine, I'd have to say it's peanut M & Ms or 3 Musketeers.
What's your biggest mistake of the week?
Goin' right for the jugular, aren't ya? It's one of two things. A delay I've been making on sending out a thank-you note. I'm a firm believer in that social grace, unfortunately my note cards can't find their way to the mail box. The other mistake could be my newscast yesterday. I didn't flush the show, but there were a couple bumps I was rather disappointed in. Oh well, at least I get to put my work behind me when I leave at the end of the day.
Which was your favorite birthday as a kid?
It wasn't my five year birthday party, that's for sure. I threw a tantrum because, as an innately competitive person, I didn't realize I wasn't allowed to win all the games. I remember tears streaming down my face and my parents apologizing profusely to the other kids because I wanted all the prizes. It was my party, I guess, and I could cry if I wanted to. I think my favorite birthday was when I was turning 11 or 12. I had five other girls over to my house and my mom piled all of us up in my dad's huge, land shark company car. We all drove up the interstate to this fancy-schmancy restaurant for lunch and then went back home for dessert. We had cake and ice cream and cocoa served by my mom with her silver tea service.
It was so grown up.
If you could do one thing to change your appearance, what would it be?
Well, I've been spending a lot of money for the past 10 years to fix my awful head of hair. It's nice and straight and blonde now, quite different from my days in high school.
My teeth are recently whitened and have been stick straight for a long time, so I'm happy with them. I've got a bit of curve here and there, but nothing that's unsightly. Still, I've been spending lots of time at the gym to kind of, er, streamline things.
If I had to do one thing, it would probably be a breast reduction. Woodward and Bernstein (as I call them) can be a bit difficult to tote around, especially when buying dresses. They're always great in the waist and too small up top, or just fine up there and loosy goosy down there.
