Lorenza and Suki and her Mom, Katy tagged me to tell you about my Mom. Mom's kind of a private person and I've only been living with her for a year now so I wasn't sure how to go about this and I really don't like when she takes over my blog (Ruby's Mom: Ruby!). So I figured I'd take what Tad and Wally did and interview her. Then, I wasn't sure what kind of questions to ask her. Now I'm not sure if this breaks the rules of indepth interviews or not, but she provided me with acceptable questions (Is that right? That doesn't sound right!). Anyhowl, the questions she let me ask come from her favorite magazine Vanity Fair (oh, she reads LOTS of magazines) and one of her favorite TV shows Inside the Actor's Studio. Here we go...
Ruby: Thanks for sitting down with me and letting me ask these questions.
Mom: Did I have a choice?
Ruby: Um, no...but it's for Lorenza and Suki...you love them!
Ruby: What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Mom: Sipping a Starbucks, venti, shaken, black iced tea with 3 pumps of Melon, on a warm day at the beach with you by my side.
Ruby: What's 'the beach', we've never been to the beach. Oh and you really need to work on that Starbucks addiction, I fear it will cut into my treat supply one day soon.
Mom: Ruby! I will refuse to answer questions if you are mean.
Ruby: I'm not mean, I'm just very observant...and it's kinda obvious to anyone who sees all the Starbucks cups in your car!
Ruby: Which living person do you most admire?
Mom: My Sister, Auntie Joey...she's done a really good job taking care of your cousin Danny under some challenging circumstances! Plus, she's really cool.
Ruby: If she's so cool, how come I haven't met her yet?
Mom: She lives far away.
Ruby: So...you have heard of an airplane, haven't you?
Mom: Next question...
Ruby: What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
Ruby: What's pro-crap-tin-nation?
Mom: I'll tell you later.
Ruby: What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Ruby: Is tardiness when people poop a lot?
Mom: Nope you're probably thinking of turdiness, which isn't really a word.
Ruby: What is your greatest extravagance?
Mom: Yarn and Doggie Toys.
Ruby: OK, now we're talking, I take back the earlier Starbucks comment. Oh, and yarn...that's a doggie toy too you know?
Mom: Unfortunately I do!
Ruby: What do you dislike most about your appearance?
Mom: That would be a really long list.
Ruby: Oh, don't be silly, you are bootiful. Like dogter, like mother!
Mom: Don't worry, you'll get a snack after this.
Ruby: What is your greatest regret?
Mom: Working too much.
Ruby: I agree and I've been meaning to talk to you about that.
Mom: Go talk to your Uncle Mark about that.
Ruby: Which talent would you most like to have?
Mom: Playing the piano...your Nanny's gonna love THAT answer!
Ruby: Why will Nanny love that answer?
Mom: Well Ruby, Nanny tried to get me to learn piano and I really didn't want to.
Ruby: Oh, and what's a pee-ah-no? Does it have to do with peepee'ing?
Mom: Um, no. Next question.
Ruby: Will I ever get a Dad?
Mom: Hey! That wasn't on the approved question list!
Ruby: I have a right to know...a lot of my doggie friends have them, why don't I?
Mom: This is not the time.
Ruby: You know Nanny wants to know this too.
Mom: Oh I know she does...next question or no snack!
Ruby: OK, next question.
Ruby: What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Mom: Picking up and moving to CA all by myself - oh and getting you.
Ruby: Good Answer, particulary the last part.
Ruby: What is your favorite word?
Ruby: What's a ramekin?
Mom: It's a little dish.
Ruby: That's silly to like that as a word.
Mom: I just like the way it sounds.
Ruby: What is your least favorite word?
Ruby: Wow, that's my least favorite word too.
Mom: Really, I wonder why???
Ruby: What turns you on?
Mom: George Clooney
Ruby: Who's that?
Ruby: What turns you off?
Mom: Misbehaving doggies named Ruby.
Ruby: OK, lets move on to the next question.
Ruby: What sound or noise do you love?
Mom: Rain, ocean waves, babbling brook, anything water.
Ruby: I don't like the rain, especially because you make me wear that stoopid raincoat.
Ruby: What sound or noise do you hate?
Mom: Car alarms and loud barking doggies named Ruby.
Ruby: OK, next question.
Ruby: What is your favorite curse word?
Mom: Ruby, your site is rated 'G' and I'd like to keep it that way.
Ruby: What is your profession?
Mom: I am a software development manager for a health insurance company. We build web sites.
Ruby: Well that explains why you are always doing things to my blog.
Mom: Yes...and I have lots more I want to do too.
Ruby: Oh great...you know, that's cutting into my dog park time.
Mom: Remember what I said about being mean????
Ruby: OK, what profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Mom: I'd like to be a writer.
Mom: I like to tell stories.
Ruby: Would they be about me?
Mom: Let's move on.
Ruby: What profession would you not like to do?
Mom: Hmmm, there are a lot, but I don't think I'd like to be a doctor. Too much pressure.
Ruby: Yeah, and it's not nice to stick things up doggies butts or poke them with needles either.
Ruby: What is your motto?
Mom: When asked what I want I always say...
"Five million dollars, a good looking guy and a puppy!" One out of 3 ain't bad!
Ruby: What's my motto?
Mom: I would say 'Rub my Belly' or 'Show me the Snackie'
Ruby: OK, how about a snackie then?
Mom: Are we finished with this interview yet?
Ruby: Um...yes, now 'Show me the Snackie'!
I'd like to thank my Mom for letting me interview her, even if she DID provide me with the questions. Now I'm tagging Dory, Joe & Tanner and Fei. Tell me and my Mom all about your hoomans!
