h|month-terview: preview questions ...

#healthmonth ... as instigator of being part of healthmonth back in december among a few friends (who have since become instigators themselves), this is a preview of the interview questions for our get-to-know TEAM CDWL@edi, aka h|month-terview - a faux-interview of sorts, albeit truthful responses.

(SIDE NOTE: this our our team's add-on-fun, inspired by healthmonth and is NOT formally part of the on-line healthmonth experience. but hey! spurring on creativity is a good thing, too!)

what to ask?! ARGH!!! ... i have been struggling a bit with interview questions. then i remembered an inside the actors studio post from spinning girl way-back ago in 2006. and as a checking in on the questions, i found this questionnaires of j. lipton, b. pivot, and m. proust.

formal-ish + bonus h|month-terview ... that said, our questions are a mash-up of james lipton and bernard pivot questions as-is ... and then the deconstructed & reconstructed healthmonth-flair bonus interview afterwards. stay tuned for the first h|month-terview ...

meet: shirlnutkin

in ~5 words
(alpha order): authentic, enthusiastic, forthright, pensive*, quirky, dagny taggart-ish*
role(s) (on the team): cheerleader + blogger.
goal (for self): healthier lifestyle where i stop paying pharmaceutical companies for my bad eating and inactivity habits, while challenging genetics. (see reverb10, day 18: try)
goal (for team): to meet new people, while having fun knowing we are adding more years to our lives.
my achilles's heel: garlic fries.
*in response to bill n's comment, i have replaced pensive
with
dagny taggart, of atlas shrugged.
