Answers To Your Questions - 2


Astrid

What is your favorite zoo- exhibit? The monkey house, they look like they are in giant cubicles. They are so much like humans it’s fascinating to watch them in action.

How many shelves does your refrigerator have? Including freezer 7.

My Questions:
What was your favorite subject in school?
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

Carmel

What are your origins, like English, German or whatever it may be, there ya go, what are you origins? Irish, Sicilian, and French Canadian. The irony is my family has been trying to learn about our Sicilian heritage, while my grandfather was ashamed of it because he grew up in a predominantly German and Polish neighborhood. He even went so far as to change his first name from Salvatore to George and change the pronunciation of our last name. And my sis and I have also taken an interest in our Irish heritage with help from The Hooligans.

What book of the Bible is your fave? Lately I’ve been going back to the Book of Hosea. The prophet who married the prostitute. Because it was an apt metaphor for my life and was really happening. I was a sinner going my own way, even when I was a Christian, God punished me and loved me, calling me back to Him. It’s a beautiful book on how much God loves us.

My Questions:
What was the first thing you noticed about your fiancé?
If you could at the drop of the hat do anything, what would it be?

She’s A Sprite’s

Who had the most influence on your life, and why? There isn’t one particular person who influenced me, but many along the ways have had their impact in my life. My kindergarten teacher Mrs. Hymerling and fifth grade teachers Mrs. Chance, probably the few good teachers I had during my childhood who didn’t make me feel stupid or let me get lazy. Wish I had more like them. Kris Perkins, my youth pastor when I was in school and Chris Shenk my best friend during that time, both laid the foundation for my faith. Mike Yaconelli and Henri Nouwen, I only met the former once and the latter not at all, but I feel like they were my mentors. A lot of my faith has been shaped by their works. And believe it or not, the kids I have worked with over the years have influenced me. Taught me to not take myself so seriously and that I don’t have to act cool or try to be relevant to have an impact.

What do you do for a living, and are you happy with it? I am a temp at a title company, I do not like it, but it’s a living and don’t complain because I have no reason to. I’m blessed to have a job. I am happy irregardless of what I’m doing, but I am hopefully, if it’s God’s will, going back to school in the next 6 months to a year.

My Questions:
If you had the means and opportunity to do anything, what would it be?

Why the fascination with sprites?

Rick
Who do you influence? I’d hope I influence the kids that I work with to seek Him daily. It is difficult to tell sometimes and I won’t see the fruits of my labor. Oddly enough I’m OK with that. All I can do is love them, listen, pray, and hope that it takes. At the very least I know of one kid I influenced. He wanted me to take him to South Street (a hipster place in Philly), but I told him unless he got his grades up I wouldn’t take him. Not only did he get his grades up, but he admits he feels better about himself as a result of it. So better grades and self worth through bribery.

What superpower do you have? Super speed baby. I know I look big and cumbersome, but I’m mad quick.

My Questions:
What is your favorite memory?
What scares you?

There is one day left to send me your questions and what you discovered over the past year. I won't be taking any more submissions when the new year strikes.

If you had the means and opportunity to do anything, what would it be?
I would be a profiler for the FBI working in the sex crimes unit, I love police work, I love investigations, I love trying to get into the minds of the criminals, but more than all of that, I want to help those people. There would be nothing more gratifying than putting those sick SOB's behind bars, and giving the victims some since of justice. (though nothing can take that pain away)

Why the fascination with sprites?
I have always loved fairies and sprites, but the nickname came from working at Aviation Challenge at the US Space and Rocket center (where they do space camp) Aviation Challenge was fighter pilot training for kids, and we all had to tell an embarassing story and be nicknamed. I came out with Sprite. so it serves a dual purpose.

Happy New Year Rev^3!

Okay, my 2nd set of questions...

1. You say you have tried college on 3 seperate occasions. What subject(s) were you studying?

2. Why did you give up?

Blogger The Cubicle Reverend said...

I actually have two associates degrees, and in retrospect, no person should have 2 associates degrees. One in Liberal Arts, another in computer graphic design, which was given I think more out of pitty because I had no talent for it. I went to get a bachelors in Literature many years later, but had to stop to take care of my mother during her illness and just never went back. I found out I have some money coming to me that she set aside specificaly for me going to school, so I should be going back in the next 6 months or so.

Andy my question for you is:
If I come to Australia, will you, Carmel, and Jess show me a good time?

Sprite, the nickname suits you. You are too cute for words. I hope this new beau treats you right. Remember, you are under the jurisdiction of the Cube Rev now and we believe in vigilanty justice.

Alright, here are my two. What was your favorite childhood toy and why? And who is your favorite musical artist?

10:01 AM  
Blogger The Cubicle Reverend said...

1) Childhood toy - Blocks and/or leggos, they had so many possibilites. I loved just taking them out, building something, then destroying it again.

2)The Pogues - They were the first band I listened to that were outside of the main stream. It opened up a world of music I had never heard before and made me want to find other stuff like it. Plus they are Irish so that makes it especially good.

My two for you are:
1)What draws you to poetry?

2)What is your favorite holiday and why?

Is it just me or can we ask you more questions?
The answers to mine are:

1.What is the first thing you noticed about your fince'?
The first thing I noticed about him was his gentle nature, the more we talked the more I noticed it and loved it! As for what I first noticed about him in physical appearance when I first saw him, it would be his smile.

2.If you could at the drop of the hat do anything, what would it be?
Go to Italy, my origins are italian, my parents are from a place called "Calabria" But I want to see all the country.

I have really enjoyed this idea of yours Cube, it's let us all know things about each other! So far it's been my favorite assignment.

Blogger The Cubicle Reverend said...

It has been fun. I'm glad people got into it.

12:39 PM  
Blogger Carmel said...

I understand that you may be swamped with questions so I shall only ask one more

What part of the world (even if it's in the USA, like a city you always wanted to visit) have you always dreamed of visiting, or would like to visit?

1:24 PM  
Blogger The Cubicle Reverend said...

That's an easy one. Ireland, I don't care where or how I get there, but I have to go. It's an Irish thing. A buddy of mine's been telling me about it for years so that's the first place I'm going when I can. Though I do want to go to Italy to see the other half of my culture.

Now I'll ask you the same question I asked Antonia:

If I come to Australia will you Jess, and Antonia show me a good time?

1:52 PM  
Blogger Carmel said...

I thought your surname sounded Italian. Actually, Antonia is from the UK, but she can visit anytime and be welcome.
Are you kidding? Australians know how to show anyone a good time, we have crocodile wrestling, outback, shrimps on the barbie, beaches galore, cities,country, we got it all!! so yah I think we would do well at that :)
You can try australian beer too maybe since you like that other beer that tastes like what Jess said it did lol.

It's a date then.

Blogger Tony Myles said...

Speaking of influence, I just swiped your name (Cubicle Reverend) for a chapter in my book. I'll buy you a Twinkie if it ever gets published, okay?

12:34 PM  
Blogger The Cubicle Reverend said...

How about an autographed copy?

Crap, I should have thought of copywriting it.

Blogger Cinnamon Spider said...

Aww man I missed my chance. But very cute and cool idea.
It's nice to think about these things.
Happy New Year!

Blogger Cinnamon Spider said...

OK my first question is are you married/dating anyone? If so for how long? If not is that because you want to be single.

Second question is: How religious are you exactly, like is there any doubt in your beliefs?

Blogger Astrid said...

Awesome, thanks for your reply! 7 shelves in your refrigerator and freezer! Wow! I have to do with 4. Keep your comment-section open for my answers later this week. Oh, and happy new year!

Happy new years to you too sweetie.

All the answers to your questions…

What was Astrid’s favorite subject in school? Well, I can only say I was a born nerd. I love to get educated and I get passionate about things very easily. I think I LOVED all classes, except for mathmetics and Dutch, but if I could only select say 5 classes I would go for: English, Latin, geography, gymnastics, and history, yes.

If Astrid could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why? Mmm… that’s a toughy. I think the United States of America or Iceland in the summer-time. I have been to the United States a lot and somehow I always feel at home out there. I especially love New York City with all the ethnic neighborhoods and Broadway and Central Park and … but Iceland is gorgeous too. It is so clean, fresh, and colorful, but so f*cking cold in winter, yeah, like I said, your questions are even more rough than I had in school! Haha …

I think it is bed-time for me now!

Miles of smiles,

Astrid.
