The Top 10 Blog Interview With….. @2cre8
It gives me great pleasure to welcome Kathy Meyer as the subject of this weeks Interview.
Kathy, known to many as @2cre8 has such a positive presence on Twitter as was proved by the popularity of her previous appearance on the blog with Top 10 Twitter Revelations, just glance to your right to see it sitting proudly at the top of the ‘Most Popular’ charts as evidence of that.
Just a super person to follow, you can connect with Kathy on Twitter by clicking on the image below.
If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed one luxury item what would it be and why?
Why a jet plane of course so I could get the hell off of there! It would be fully loaded with the latest tech gadgets including a flotation device for the plane. Could it be equipped with a pilot too ha ha! ;D
Do you have any phobias?
Everyone I know just loves them, but I have this thing about roller coasters – I just don’t like them. I tried it a couple times and got terribly nauseous. (Editors note; She’s going to love this one then!)
Who inspires you and why?
That’s an awfully difficult question to answer since I’ve met so many people and read about so many people (famous or otherwise) who are truly inspirational. I think everyday people of any age who, despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles, still manage to go out there and consistently strive towards bettering their lives and inspiring others.
Which animal would you most like to be and why?
Although not a real animal, I would probably like to be the mythological creature ‘Pegasus’, not bound by land or sea only. I love that it symbolizes strength, wisdom and artistic inspiration.
What is the one thing in life that irritates you the most and why?
Ignorance. It’s all too prevalent in this world. It causes hurtful decisions and actions, unwarranted intolerance and hatred.
If you could have a superpower what would it be and why?
Ooh I would definitely be the ‘supreme being’ like ‘Leeloo’ in the movie The Fifth Element. Sort of the new ‘Superwoman’ for the 21st century saving the world from evil!
What do you think you will be doing in 10 years time?
I can’t begin to fathom 10 years, let alone 5 years. But I know I’ll definitely be working, dabbling in some sort of entrepreneur endeavor and forever learning. Hopefully also doing a lot of traveling in between and supporting childrens causes!
What is your favourite guilty pleasure?
Seafood – I love seafood! Sushi, lobster, shrimp, crab, fish – you name it, I’m there!
You are holding a dinner party and you can invite 3 people (living or historical), who would you invite and why?
Hmmm – another tough one! First, I would probably invite Albert Einstein just to hear and marvel at the sheer brilliance of the man. Next I would invite Canadian interior designer Candice Olson since I admire her work and we share similar taste and the love of design. (Plus I’d love for her to redo my kitchen ha ha!) And lastly, for the benefit of my son, I would invite Lou Gehrig. Most career grand slams and voted as the greatest first baseman of all time! Quite a cast of characters wouldn’t you say?! (A close third would be Steve Jobs, Claude Monet or Ansel Adams.)
Can you tell us one thing about yourself which would surprise people who know you?
I love martial arts – particularly kung fu! I remember as a young girl going to Chinatown with a friend and in one afternoon watching 2 or 3 in a row! You know, those old kung fu movies where the lips move in perfect sync with the voice ha ha! Classics! I think I loved them so because of the underlying message of good vs. evil. I’m always rooting for the underdog – that’s me!
Many thanks Kathy for your thoughtful and entertaining answers.
