2 minutes and 40 seconds with Liz (6birds.net)
As my first interviewee for 2 minutes and 40 seconds, I thought, who better to interview than someone I have been in fairly close contact with over the past few months? Liz is a young resident of Texas, and is the owner of 6birds, a personal blog where she writes about her life in general. She also writes on a variety of topics, her posts vary in style to keep things interesting, and she starts a lot of interesting projects. Late last year I redesigned her blog, and took the opportunity to ask her a few questions as well!
Hi Liz, welcome to “2 minutes and 40 seconds”. Let’s not waste any time and get right to the questions.
Describe yourself in exactly thirteen words, don’t cheat.
Awkward, sarcastic, clumsy, expert confuser, unintentionally funny, random, talkative, creative, impatient, cat lover.
What is the silliest nickname you’ve had?
Bearah. Gosh, that was annoying.
What was the last song you listened to?
Avicii – Wake Me Up
What is your favourite time of day?
3:26 (birthday). Or 4am.
If you could do anything for a living what would it be?
Taste testing. I’m a super-taster with allergies, though, so it sucks.
Someone pushes past you with a bag of shopping and trips over. What falls out of the shopping bag?
Embarrassing stuff. Or something from the medical aisle.
Would you rather have burgers as hands or French fries as toes?
Burgers as hands because ants would have to travel further to get to my hands, and I could just wear some sort of shoe that doubles as a moat of ant poison.
Your phone is stuck. What embarrassing photo is on the screen?
An illusion I like to make when bored where my legs are smushed together and a picture is taken. Sometimes it’s my arms. I just find it funny and so deceiving. 😶
Fire or ice?
Fruits or vegetables?
Carrots or corn?
Melon or berry?
Pie or cake?
Cake. Unless it’s pumpkin.
Moon or sun?
Would you rather be rolling in an avalanche or in a sea of cornflakes?
An avalanche would be pretty stellar.
Your foot gets stuck in the vacuum cleaner. What are your immediate thoughts?
Someone puts your socks in a frypan. What’s next?
If they were my favorite pair, I’ll probably beat them up. But all are my favorite pair, so. It’s okay; my cousin’s friend will survive after I’m done.
There is a rabbit in overalls. Who is the rabbit’s sidekick?
A carrot. Like, he doesn’t eat this carrot, though. He’s got this undying, platonic love for this carrot. It’s a special carrot.
You wake up to find raw pasta in your bed. Explain.
I sleep-walked into the kitchen to get raw pasta to suck or chew on. ‘Cause I did that with my cousin as a kid. Tastes great.
And last but not least, what is going to fall from the sky tomorrow?
Rain would be nice.
