You know… that Blog?

[New feature!] An Interview with… Thom

Written By: Jenn - Jan• 11•10

Along this journey of mine, in getting to know you all I’ve discovered that my readers and friends have more depth to them than a simple comment now and then can portray. This inspires me to delve deeper, and to that end I’ve decided to introduce a new “an Interview With…” feature. Let me know what you think. Who knows – you may discover something you never knew about someone you’ve been “reading” for ages!

My first victim guest is Thom, of “Thoms Place 4 Well, Whatever“.

Q. How do you find the time to blog as much as you do? My Google reader is completely spammed by daily “Thom thoughts”! Explain yourself!

    A. LOL It’s called using an iPhone. I have my WordPress App on there, I schedule everything in advance. When you post your SHW I do the next week right then and there. For my stories, I get ideas and write the info on my iPhone so I don’t forget what I was thinking. And mostly, it’s called not needing much sleep at all. I’m anal about keeping up to date and on top of things.

Q. What are you the most proud of? (Online or off)

    A. My family and friends.

Q. What is your favorite kind of music?

    A. Disco! Nothing better if you ask me.

Q. Coke or Pepsi?

    A. Coke! Pepsi tastes like sugar water

Q. What do you find the best and the worst about blogging?

    A. Best: The Friendships
    Worst: Those that you continually comment on and they very rarely or never comment on your blog.

Q. Give me the best advice you’ve got in your arsenal. About anything.

    A. Think positive about every situation you are in or come across. I believe more in the power of positive thinking than anything. With that comes believing totally in myself. When I’m happy and things are good everyone and everything around me is good also. The glass is half full, never half empty.

Q. What is your idea of the perfect party?

    A. Depends upon the party!!! But the best is a non-scheduled barbecue at the beach.

Q. Who is your favorite author?

    A. Patricia Cornwell

Q. What is the one thing you’re most afraid of?

    A. [He’s lucky I live so far away. Consider this edited!!] Heights… ROFLMAO!!!

Q. And finally… I’ve wondered for ages – how do you know Quilly? You guys seem to be joined at the hip. Are you related?

    A. Last year either late January or early February I made a comment on a fellow blogger’s blog, here in Hawai’i who had mentioned Quilly. I went to her blog and left a comment. (I’m going from memory here, so there might be some CRS [Can’t Remember S**t]) Anyway I think Quilly sent me an email saying now don’t think that she’s a high mucky muck that she lives in Hawai’i Kai. I said “so do I!” We came to find out we live only 2, actually 1, long city block away from each other. She invited me to dinner, (we had roast, potatoes, carrots and dessert) and we just hit it off. I could be myself and she just accepted me with no questions asked. We just clicked. We think a lot alike on many issues and if we disagree we respect each other to let us say our piece. She is a kindred spirit. I feel like I’ve known her all my life now.

    Hello, thanks for visiting on behalf of JMac. I agree, an interview is a great way to get to know others a little better.

  2. Thom says:

    Well I see oh Great One that you did change an answer just a little but I’ll live with it. This was fun and I can’t wait to see more of these to get to know people better. Loved doing this and I’m honored that you are making me your first one. Guess I’m going to have to behave now ROFLMAO!!! Hey what the hell is the Captcha code now LOL…more typo’s I can do now. And it only took me 4 tries to get the right code. pffft Mahalo my friend. You are the bomb and pssst…I’m always watching my back LOL

  3. Hey Jenn you’re blogging away here, why the frick is my google reader not showing any new posts by you in 2010?!

    Great to find out a bit more about Thom and a fun idea too. The captch’s not too bad I’m sure we can learn to live with it. Although it took me a cuople of shots! Spammers suck!

    Good on you Thom for scheduling your posts, whenever I write something I just want to post it right away. I have tried a bit of scheduling while away, so I don’t miss my haiku mostly!

      Yeah, my legit traffic died way off yesterday – I think the captcha broke something?? I will have to see what I can do to fix that. Glad you came by anyway :)

  4. Barbara H. says:

    Wow, you got Thom to give you some REAL ANSWERS! Amazing! In memes, anyway, he seems to find creative ways around directly answering.

    • Jenn says:

      I KNOW! Weird, eh? I was actually expecting a lot more horseplay from him, but I only had to edit one of them haha ;)

      He’s a good egg.

  5. Amanda Moore says:

    I knew Thom was Da bomb! Coke…… awesome Pepsi sucks. Heights…. freak me O.U.T. Cornwell is not too bad but mom reads her more than I (must be the age difference LOL)And his idea of a party is A.#1!

  6. Jenn says:

    Ok, so it was definitely the new Captcha that killed off my RSS feed – I’ve disabled it and will have to find another one to use.

  7. So Thom’s anal, eh? Well there’s a surprise.
    Okay, Patricia Cornwell, that WAS a surprise! LOL

    I prefer Coke and am terrified of heights too; love the story of When Thom Met Quilly.

    So who’s next? I really enjoyed this — what a great idea to interview folks. I’ll be looking forward to reading some more!

  8. Melli says:

    I am sO amazed! And proud! Thom gave really truly honest and good answers! How’d you DO that!? I REMEMBER when Thom met Quilly! (sounds like a movie!) That’s about the same time I met him. :)

    • Jenn says:

      It does sound like a movie, doesn’t it? I think Charley might have something to say about the plot line though ;)

  9. Becca says:

    Great interview Thom. I can see why Thom would get upset about people not commenting as he is a devoted commenter! Who is your next victim, Jenn? ;)
