Helly my Island guests it is my birthday today and I am turning 34.. or as I prefer to say it. Turning 21 for the 14th time. It’s a special day for me! So I decided to make a post that goes live on my birthday! Obviously I will have to clean my house to receive some family as guests so I can’t do a whole lot of editing. Arceus forbid that my family sees some crummies. So I took inspiration from my random topic generator posts and decided to interview myself! I wanted stock celebrity interview questions.. but those are dang hard to find.. so this interview.. in the journalist sense.. is a job interview in format! Weird huh! Yay!
You are a new Addition to the Crayon Box, what colour would you be and why?!
For this list I used 36 interview questions that are actually fun to answer. I hope I am reminded to put the link here! This is the second question on this list and an obvious one for me to answer. I would be a #Ff89CD Crayon. Pink is not a colour we often see in pens/pencils or crayons, it really is underrated. If we DO get it it happens to be a super hot pink colour or one of those skin colour things. But I want a nice piglike/soft pink! That is a niche and I would stand out..if I stand out I can sell myself. When there is no one like me.. and I get appreciated I know it is because of me! I am not the generic lightbulb .. I am that one weird thing that is super hard to get. People will flock over me and I will be in control of my own uniqueness.
If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
I would be a duck! I like variation in my life. As a duck I can waddle through the park and eat some bread from lovely old people, I could bite annoying little kids wearing slippers in the toe and I could just mosey about. I could also swim on the pond! Just float around bobbing for a fish or whatever I think is a fish! When it gets cold I could just take flight and move to the south! With my fellow ducks! I could still have a cartoony avatar in the style of Ducktales and I could make adorable noises all day long. Ducks are great! Even as a pet! I’d be white which means my owner could put pink clothes on me! Which is lovely! I like the combination of white and pink! You really have to be mindful of what images you want to have and I think I can still be me as a duck! Also I REALLY want to follow my old doctor for a week and constantly call him a quack! That would be super fun!
What is the last gift you have given to someone?
Since these are job interview questions I am going to be a bit bold here and say that the gift I gave was myself. When we think of gifts we always think in terms of material goods, yet once one time is up you are not often reminded as “the girl who gave me that delicious bottle of wine” or “that guy who brought me flowers every week” . In the end what is oftenly more appreciated than that is the gesture itself. It’s the tiny things that matter. Inviting a friend over for coffee when you know they are having a bit of a rough time, sending a little message to check up on someone going through something important. In the end I truly hope that to people I matter more than the gifts I give them. That sounds like such a wimpy answer but while I am soon to get a few nice birthday gifts that will improve the quality of my life, over all I am more excited to see people again. Spend time together. I hope I invoke that same sentiment and thus I think I am the true last gift I gave someone!
What was the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?
It was a movie called Seeking Justice. A movie in which Nic Cage’s wife gets raped and a mysterious stranger offers to settle the score for him.. seeing to it that the rapist gets justice. However he then finds himself entangled in a vigilante organisation that doesn’t just clean up the streets but all watching eyes as well. He is tasked to murder a child-pornographer.. but it soon turns out things are not what they seem. Why did I watch it? Well because the episode of Ghost Hunters or Ghost Investigation.. or whatever ..they are all the same show anyway.. was one I had already seen. Nic Cage’s acting is the second closest thing to otherworldly entities that I could see that night. I’ve seen lots of movies so at times it’s taking the scraps! That isn’t bad either, it is part of the world, you can’t always have it all. The movie wasn’t great by any means but with a bit of wine, some snacks and a cozy blanket it was a perfect night.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
So.. this is where I’d blow the interview completely because I would make a lame joke. I would look at myself and say.. well if I grow.. beyond this.. I’d probably want to be skinnier again later on…. Then I would probably spout the most liberal thing imaginable. I would say… that I do not believe in planning out once life. Tomorrow you might be dead, over focussed ambition will only lead to deception. It is important to think about these things on as much of a Macro-Scale as possible. If I want to be a writer right now.. I do not aim to be a writer in ten years, I aim to have improved my writing skills. That way I know I will succeed and keep my options over. Perhaps writing isn’t for me anymore but I instead can use those skills to YouTube or to go into sales. When you are heading towards a hard set goal, everything you need to do that isn’t in the straight line of that ..hurts. If you have your eyes on the horizon but not on a fixed point you make just as much progress if not more but you drive yourself less crazy in doing so. So if there is one thing I want to be in the future.. it’s is to be happy!
What inspires you?!
Irina Senpai obviously! Probably Lita and Naja as well… Scott too although in a slightly different way…. but in all seriousness I do think inspiration can be gotten from just about anything as long as you keep an open mind. Calling back to the previous questions, if I would aspire to be a writer, perhaps I have to be inspired by Tolkien or George R. R. Martin, whose writing isn’t even that good. Yet without a hard set vision of the future I could also get the inspiration from the next Anne Geddes, who might put some flowers in a typewriter. If you are not inspired you might be apathetic I do not have to act on all inspiration, but even the most random person on the street may teach me something.
One might be able to teach me how to greet you in Armenian, another may be able to teach me how to recognise some bird calls while yet another can tell me how to break into a house. Depending on what future me wants I can find inspiration in any or none of these. However, it is really hard to find a nice picture too so I will just tell you where I won’t find inspiration and that is in religion. I am happy people can find support into their beliefs but I find it so that is we try to find shared answers to the big questions in our life they often fit less. So if you ever find me inside a church it is because of the fact that I do on occasion enjoy Gospel music. I will not be inspired but I will be amused.
If you woke up and had 2000 unread emails and could only answer 300 of them how would you choose how to answer them?
I’d use a random number generator. Because I am going to assume this also means I can only read 300. If not instead of reading them all I would just read and answer half. Is there a risk I miss something very important that way sure, if I do it by random number generator even more so. Yet importance is only in the eye of the beholder. A person asking.. hey I am feeling a bit blue, could you maybe send a cute cat picture might need that cat picture much more than Raistlin needs his answer if he can join my STAFF. We measure ourselves to common ideas so much that often we lose our way with those. Yes it seems more important to answer your mother but who knows a stranger might be in mortal peril and just clicked on the first link on his dying phone to send for help from anyone really! While in reality it might not be so extreme .. appreciation is a subjective good.
As long as you don’t leave everything to the final email someone will remind you of the really important stuff. That “reputation” you keep by never being late with a reply to colleagues is neat.. for you but is it for that friend who just got divorced asking if they can over to netflix and maybe a comfort hug?! The same thing goes for things like charities, if I spend my money on Green Peace I can not spend it on Amnesty.. I can prioritise what I want but I am also aware that Amnesty still thinks I am cheap if I choose Greenpeace over them.. so if I decide by sheer randomness. I never chose against anybody and that is pleasant way to live.
Estimate how many windows there are in New York
There are 8,336,817 people living in New York. I give an estimate of roughly twelve windows per person exisisting. A new York place in New York I’d Roughly estimated from childhood to have four windows, plus one window for their working space. This is shared with many people so hence the low average. Two windows on average for their car.. but also those of taxis, busses and subways. Four for all the commercial buildings a citizen uses. Given that those are shared amongst many people but oftenly have sooo many windows I’d say this is fair. . Then there is one window per new york citizen that is static.. between people. The window in a bus stop, the windows of a train station, between you and the person selling your ticket, the cinema guy, the drive through person. Then you add the Ctiziens of new York once more plus 50/75% if you count Microsoft Windows. Yet I do not! Thus this leads me to believe there are about 100,041,804 windows in New York.
Who would win in a fight between Spider-man and Batman?
It depends on how this fight unfolds, if Batman gets preptime and can research Spiderman before their fight starts he has a fair shot at the win. In a spontaneous fight.. with both having no idea of each other’s abilities Spider-man will win. Depending on the version of Spiderman the match will be a close call or a beatdown. An unprepared Batman has to analyse first and will endure blows in the first part of the match. Spider-man however can rely on his Spider-Sense and can keep his stamina up.
Peter Parker also has great analytical abilities so while Batman would eventually pull ahead in terms of knowledge, the added mobility Spider-man has with his own mind will make it hard for Batman to compete. If we take Sam Rami spiderman for example his web is near infinite, while Batman’s gadgets are very finite. Spider-man can just stall outl Batman. Once he tossed his last Batarang he has very little counter options. Miles Morales Spiderman even has some crippeling abilities that Batman has no counter for in case he does not bring the correct tools. Like the bio-electricity punches.Almost all Spider-man-men have been people of great minds, including Otto Ocatvius so Batman’s biggest advantage against his normal foes gets partially negated here.
However a prepared Batman..matches up to Superman and even has beaten Superman twice or and there is now way Spiderman except for Cosmic Spiderman can be put in that league. He has tools for every type of enemy and can prepare for this in a relatively short time.. so if the fight is staged he will ALWAYS win. However in a random encounter .. assuming he has no knowledge of Spider-man as he does not exist in his universe, he will almost always lose. Realistically only standing a chance against Venom Suit Spiderman as he can easily defeat him with a single gadget.
