I have just completed my first-ever interview as a blogger with New York City fashionista, Daryl, and here it is.
D: Do you think I would know you if I ran into you on the street? Why?
CG: Yes, I think you'd know me. You've seen my little picture on my blog. And besides, I'd probably have George with me. Everyone knows the George Clooney of the Dog World.
D: If you could live anywhere in the world, assume finances were not an issue, where would it be? Why?
CG: Well, I'm not a world traveler such as yourself, and in fact, have never even been out of the country so I don't have that knowledge to draw upon. If finances really weren't an issue, and in order to be somewhat close to my relatives, I'd be living somewhere on the East Coast, in a home with character and a lot of land with a view of a body of water. I'd have horses and breed them. And my husband wouldn't be sick.
D: How did you come to work at your current job? Why?
CG: I run the main office at a K-12 private school and I'll be there 10 years as of next week. Back in 1999, my sons attended this school and we lived less than 10 minutes away from it. My husband had just been offered a position on a horse farm that was a half hour away. At that time, I was selling advertising space at a daily newspaper in Wilmington, DE and my husband was picking the boys up from school and I was dropping them off in the morning. A position became open in the office and I accepted it, taking a pay cut in order to get our kids to school every day. At the time, I thought it was an answer to my prayers. And today, I still think that. I love the people I work with, the children and the ethics we teach.
Ok. I'll get off my soapbox now.
D: If I gave you unlimited access to free music, what would you choose?
CG: This is a difficult question because it's so hard to list everyone I like. It's part of the reason why I've neglected to fill in all those spaces on my Blogger profile. I like so many artists. So I went out to my car and looked in my CD holder and chose the first ten I saw: John Mayer, Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne, Sarah McLachlan, Bonnie Raitt, Nick Drake, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Shawn Colvin, John Prine.
D: What is your favorite food? Why?
CG: Sushi. Really good sushi. It's an explosion of fresh wonderful tastes in my mouth. I love it.
