I love questionnaires. I wanted to be an actress mostly so I could get interviewed. I pretend I'm being interviewed in the bathroom mirror on a weekly basis, if not more often. I am entirely too in touch with my feelings on any given subject and ready to share them with Diane Sawyer or Oprah at a moment's notice.


The Big Date

1. Are you single, in a relationship, married, divorced, seperated, etc?

I am married. But very interested in why the word seperated would come *after* the word divorced. That would be an interesting arrangement. "Let's get divorced, but still split the rent." Uh-huh.

2. When was the last time you went on a date?

We went to the baseball game a few weeks ago. I hope that counts. If we weren't married, it would count as a date. But the candlelit dinner with romantic music type date? The last time I had that, we were with a few other people. Specifically the one hundred people we invited to our wedding. We may need to work on this dating thing.

3. Describe your ideal date.

This is going to get my feminist card revoked, but I've gotten old. An ideal date is one in which I am not alone. Seriously. I am no longer twenty, in my first job, and eating Ramen Noodles. I can take myself to anything. So the very act of being with another person would make the date ideal. Preferably my husband.

4. Do you think dating has become archaic?

I think people put too much stock into dating. Dating is just hanging out with the possibility of sex afterward. Who cares who called who first? Screw The Rules. Just go to the damn movies, sheesh.

5. What are your feelings on online dating services?

I have a strong and unhealthy fascination with the old guy in the Eharmony commercials. Where did he come from? Why don't they ever show his wife? And why can't they freaking tell me at least one of these so called 29 dimensions of compatibility on the commercial? Because otherwise you have to fill out the questionnaire, and I've so far not gotten my husband to agree to our filling out a questionnaire and seeing if we get matched up.


So that's my questionnaire. For all other questions, no comment. ;)
