An Interview With Myself

I'm not famous enough to get interviewed by anyone else, so I thought I'd just interview myself today.

It's going to be a sort of Seinfeld style interview - wandering all over and sort of about nothing.

So here goes:

ME: So, thank you for joining me today. I'd like to give our readers something to argue about. What controversial statement would you like to get off your chest?

me: So many to choose from, so little time. I guess I'll have to go with how revolting I find Nutella to be. And green bell peppers. And beets. And Nancy Grace.

ME: Well that should keep them busy for a while. Now - let's get down to business. To what do you owe your mad procrastinating skills?

me: I'm going to go ahead and go with being raised by a math professor. Math professors, like Spanish authors, do not have a linear sense of time. On my mother's side of the family there were all these type A deadline focused people, like my grandfather, king of awesome, but clearly the math professor genes won that battle. I'd like to point out that I'm far more efficient than most people, because, since I procrastinate, I get things done in about 1/10th the amount of time that those freaky planner people do.

ME: I did notice that you didn't answer any of my emails until the day before this interview.

me: Yep. But I'm here, right? Game, set, match - ME. Booya!

ME: If  you say so. What advice would you give yourself if you were able to talk to yourself at age 6?

me: Well first I'd probably scream and scare myself, because that would be hilarious. But then, I'd tell myself to quit Girl Scouts before the whole "camping" trip because there are no bathrooms - just boxes of poop in the woods, and there ain't NO badge shiny enough for THAT.

ME: Well played. Okay - cats or dogs?

me: *glares*

ME: Got it. What is responsible for the current ruinous state of our culture in America?

me: Besides Nutella? Hang on. Okay - plastic surgery. Oh - and fake cheese.

ME: What technology - besides flying cars - are we long overdue for?

me: Nano butlers. Nano butlers whose mad cleaning energy charges your cell phone. Yes. That.

ME: Who would you like your next interview to be with?

me: Duh. Grumpy Cat.

ME: Thank you for your time.

me: Thank me for my time.

Speaking of thanking people for things, I need to thank my sweet friend MariLynn DeGroot for sending me the most STUNNING bag of quilled flowers. I about fell out of my chair when I got it. They are so perfect and beautiful and I have HUNDREDS of them. I can't even imagine how long it took her to make them, so they are such a sweet, handmade blessing.

I knew I needed a super spectacular setting for them, so I whipped out my All Dressed Up Framelits and made a pretty floral dress - BOOM!

Pin It
Is that paper awesome or what? It's Tea For Two.

Now I'm off to see where they are on the nano butlers.

I hope you have a good night. Please don't eat fake cheese or Nutella.



  1. Okay...your card with the quilled flowers is simply gorgeous. I could never even imagine making so many teeny, beautiful flowers. But, your interview? IS HILARIOUS!!!! Seriously, this should be on the curriculum as required reading for all social media. LOL!! Lydia, you ROCK! And I love you. <3

    PS - Even though you hate Nutella. ;)

  2. Wow, those flowers ARE gorgeous (and I don't have that kind of patience). Love the use on the Dress Up Framelit.

    As for Nutella, never tried it; don't have any desire, but have you tried Trader Joe's Cookie Butter? To. Die. For!

  3. Wow, those tiny flowers ARE gorgeous (and I so don't have the patience for that)! Love your use of them on the Dress Up Framelit.

    As for Nutella....never tried it; no desire to try it. But have you experienced the ecstasy that is Trader Joe's Cookie Butter? To. Die. For!

  4. Wow, those flowers ARE gorgeous (and I don't have that kind of patience). Love the use on the Dress Up Framelit.

    As for Nutella, never tried it; don't have any desire, but have you tried Trader Joe's Cookie Butter? To. Die. For!

  5. You are too dang cute for your own britches. You make me laugh. I love your ingenious idea to interview yourself...hysterical! Love ya, Miss Lydia!

  6. tee hee, I can't decide which "me" I like best, but I think I'm leaning towards mini me.

    Yes, Nutella is vile, as is faux cheese.

    And Cindy? Yes, TJs Cookie Butter - just eat it with a spoon, man.

  7. great interview, sweet card and while you were talking about yourself someone waltzed in and changed things up on your blog...
    but don't worry about looks great!

  8. Ooooh, I love what you did with the roses. I knew you would make something amazing with them. Loved your interview!!

  9. You make my world a much better one! thanks for the great insite into your character. You know what they say about talking to yourself...? Just sayin'

    Love love the card. You are so lucky to have such wonderful friends and I am so lucky to have you!!!!!


  10. Your card is bloomin' beautiful!

  11. Uh oh...I just ate a green pepper (one of my favs) does that mean I'm banned from the blog for a week? Can we still be friends? The rest I'm right there with you. Nano butlers and all.
    Love the newest blog banner too!
    I'd ask who Grumpy Cat is...but really...doesn't that describe them all?
    Now to the important the card...your mad skills with a gel pen and especially the flowers. Now that's real friendship to share such wonderful tiny time consuming marvels. On the other hand...I'm betting she knew you'd put them to good use...and you did!

  12. I laughed. A lot. You two are hysterical! But I am afraid Nutella is going to remain one of my favourite things :)

    Love the dress with all those quilled roses. What a beautiful friend you have to make them all!

    Enjoy your Easter :)

  13. Once again, you made me laugh out loud.
    But then I started to worry... you don't cook with bay leaves and you don't like NUTELLA???? Wow.
    Your card is adorable.

  14. Hi, Lydia! I have been a follower for awhile now, but mostly I just lurk. :-) Your interview made me laugh out loud!! I dislike the same things you do (and a few others, too).

    Love your card with those amazing quilled flowers - such a labor of love! What a nice thing for your friend to do!!
