The Interview Game

Here's the rules to the game, my answer is below.

1. Leave me a comment saying "interview me". The first five commenters will be the participants.
2. I will respond by asking you five questions.
3. You will update your blog/site with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. (Write your own questions or borrow some.)

Here's my response to Jim's questions.

1) What tasks would you most like to have an army of trained monkeys (not "The Monkey") do for you?

Clean my house. Could there be any other answer? I HATE HOUSECLEANING!!!!

2) What's the most bizarre thing to happen to you lately?

I'm not certain it could be considered bizzare, but the closest thing to come to bizzare is a call I received from my husbands cousin saying she was living in Israel now, had been living here since the fall, and was in fact living in Gush Katif. (She had actually made aliyah before us, but had gone to the USA for a couple of years) What makes it bizzare wonderful is how well we hit it off! We finally did get to meet recently and after our get together, I kept thinking, "Where has this soul sister been all my life!!!"

3) If you had one moment to do over, to either change the outcome or savor the moment again, which moment would it be?

When we decided to stay in the USA and try and pay off our student loans and then go to Israel. I wish we had decided to go to Israel straight away, before children.

4) What does Israel need to do to ensure its prosperity and security?

Almost the complete opposite of what we are doing now. We have to tell the world this is our country, you have not suffered what we have suffeed, so back off. We need to stop worrying about how other's see us and focus on how G-d sees us. G-d gave us this land and we have a duty to protect her and the her Holy Places. Strength without concession, that is the only real way to peace.

5) What's your idea of a romantic evening?

A nice dinner, that I haven't had to prepare, no kids, lots of cuddling on some deserted beach; the soft shushing of the waves against the beach, the scent of the sea, the twinkling of stars in the sky, then after a light dinner, more cuddling in a minimally furnished room facing the beach, with a lovely fire roaring in the fireplace, and glasses of red wine, chilled just so.

I've been wishing Israel would tell the UN to go toss off for years.

I like your idea for a romantic evening too. :)
