Interviews of the Not So Rich and Famous - Ep10 - Tanya Espanya

Thursday, April 10, 2008
What can I say about our next lucky guest, Tanya Espanya? She's wild and wacky, has an adorable baby, travels all the time, and lives a life of luxury. Ok, maybe not so much the last one... She also knows who/what HR Puf'n'Stuf is! That's enough for me. As with all our interviewees, she put up with my odd interview style and bizarre questions with amazing grace and class. I loves me some Tanya. I hope after you read her interview and visit her blog, you'll loves her too.

1. Name, favourite jammies, mittens or gloves
Tanya Espanya, birthday suit, pink velvet gloves

2. Tanya Espanya...Coolest Blog name ever?
Second coolest…Saviour Onassis is the best. Get it…? Save your own asses…?

3. You travel a lot. I mean A LOT. Everyone wants to know...window or aisle?
Middle seat! I love being part of a human sandwich.

4. Have you ever actually whipped anyone with a licorice whip? Huh? What do you mean that's not what they're supposed to be used for? Dammit.
Ewww licorice. Blech pooey.

5. Describe the last time you wet your pants. Yes, even if it was yesterday.
About 10 or 11 years ago I was sleeping and then dreaming I had to pee. I peed the bed. My husband was mildly amused.

6. Which airline has the best food? Where were you heading, what did they serve you and what was the inflight movie?
A plane is like a bus. It is only useful to get me to my destination in one piece. Therefore I bring my own pillow and food, usually a sandwich, chocolate, hummus, almonds and carrots. I never watch the movie as I either read or listen to my iPod. And now that the baby is travelling with us, I snuggle with him. But one time Rowbear snagged us an upgrade from Miami to Los Angeles. We had ice cream sundaes! ICE CREAM SUNDAES!

7. If you were one of those smelly markers we had as kid, what flavour would you be?

8. What would the opening line of your biography be? The closing line...?
Opening line: Mother always hated mint.
Closing line: Oh what a beautiful morning!

9. What's Alexander going to be when he grows up?
Whatever he decides it better involve taking care of his parents, and basically earning a lot of monay! He’s such an easy super baby that I suspect whatever he wants to do will be super.

10.Pee Wee Herman has invited you over for movie night. What's he showing and what are you bringing as a snack?
Hah! I love Pee Wee! Okay, the movie is HR Pufinstuf and I’ll bring Mr. T cereal.

11. Have you ever licked a 9volt (square) battery? Feels good doesn't it?
Yes, but not recently. What the hell weird sensation!

12.If your head was veal, how much would it weigh and would you sell it?
Ew, I don’t like veal.

13. Worst...vacation...ever.
I try to be optimistic and learn and enjoy from every experience…but probably camping in the rain in Newfoundland in a previous life (before Rowbear).

14. Which classic fairytale most closely resembles your life?
I guess any where the poor beggar girl is rescued by the handsome prince. I know, you’re throwing up, but it’s true. I can’t believe how lucky and blessed and fortunate I am, and every day I wake up and pinch my husband, I mean, I pinch myself.

15. Will you adopt me? I do dishes.
Yes, I will adopt you, as I don’t do dishes.
