This afternoon, the Ottawa girl over at The Quack Attack posted answers to five questions posed to her in an effort to let us all get to know her better. Agreeing that it would be a neat-o idea, I zipped an e-mail off to her and received five original questions asked of me.

These are my answers.


1. When you were a little girl, what did you want to be when you grow up?

I had so many career ideas as a little girl (including pursuing a law degree – yikes!), but the earliest two memories I can recall were either a figure skater or a cheerleader. Oddly enough, I never learned to do either.

2. What is the one task you procrastinate on more than any other?

The older I get, the less I find I tend to procrastinate. I’m more of the “do it now and get it over and done with” type. This even includes laundry and cleaning toilets. The same could not be said of my homework in grade school.


3. Name one thing you love about living in Vancouver and why.

I know I have a tendency to rag on this city more often than not, but one thing I know for sure that I absolutely love is the little ways in which Vancouver constantly surprises me. Though I’m a diehard homebody, there’s also a spontaneous streak somewhere inside. Meeting friends for beer and cheap wings at the last minute, sunset trips to the beach to watch the waves roll in or random bowl-a-thons are always some of my most treasured memories of this place.

4. If you could go back in time and change one decision you made, what would it be?

This is an answer I tend to search for quite a bit for my own reasons, but as cliché as it may be to say so, I don’t think there’s anything I regret so much that I’d change, given the chance. I’ve made a lot of bad decisions, inexperienced choices and the like in my lifetime, but there’s nothing I’ve experienced that I haven’t ultimately learned something from. I could try to put a certain value on those lessons, but the truth is that it isn’t possible.

5. Totally for fun: if you found yourself in the same place as Javier Bardem, would you be brave enough to approach him? Got an opening line?

Five years ago I probably wouldn’t have had the courage to approach him, but knowing what I know of myself now, I don’t think that it would be a problem for me. I have the confidence to do so, though I don’t know for sure what I would say in that instant. But, um, let’s be honest… would I really need a stellar opening line?

I jest.

      I really enjoyed reading your answers!

    3. Wow, Fred. You must be pretty jealous of Keira to go so far as to post that sort of comment on her website. I’d bet that your name isn’t even Fred, is it? ha. Keira, you know that jealousy is one of the highest forms of flattery so I guess this comment can just go to prove your theory addressed in the last question.. Its funny, I don’t even know you but I felt compelled to defend you anyway. Cheers.

    5. re: fred
      Perhaps a lesson in grammar is also in order

      1. “I’ve been reading up on this blog” should be “I’ve been reading”; that is unless there is a library of references to this blog or you have been scouring the NY times.

      2. “For a longer period of time” makes no sense unless you have a modifier. For example, “…longer period of time than I have been a jerk” is a stretch, but it is better.

      Suggested revision: “I’ve been reading this blog for a longer period of time than I have been a bitchy girl disgused as Fred.”

      Now that really trips off the tongue.

    6. lol @ Jen

      Keira I think you should approve all comments like that in the new year because they’re pretty entertaining.
