Oh dear, Im really bad at answering questions. I havent even had a chance to study yet!!
1. If you could be a scientist and research any thing in the universe, and you had unlimited funds to do so, what would you research and why?
Id like to research the human brain, in particular memory. Id like to know why I cant remember what I was supposed to buy when I get at the supermarket but I can remember what the boy said to me on the train station about my skinny legs back in 1974. And there was something else I was going to research but I cant remember what it was.
2. If you could be any fictional character (book, movie, tv) who would you be?
I would be Elaine Benes from Seinfeld. Some of my friends say I already am her.
3. What is your favorite food to have as a leftover?
I dont descriminate here. I like any food. And there is rarely leftovers. But if I was forced to make a choice Id have to say Pizza always taste best on day 2.
4. paint or wallpaper? why?
Paint. Cause its cheaper and Im a very cheap decorator. My whole house is full of things from yard sales and charity shops.
5. You can travel through time and live as a commoner in any location at any time. Where would you go?
Id go back to the cave men. I think Id fit well into those primitive times - no cutlery, no plates and bowls etc, just everyone dig in to the latest kill. And I reckon Id look ok in a loin cloth.
6. Who would you take with you to travel to this place with? (say 1 person)
Im a bit of a loner so this is a hard one. Ill take my daughter cause she is much smarter than me and I might need some help.
7. If you could have chosen to be the subject of any finn-related song, what song would you have loved to been the subject of?
Well in my mind I AM the subject of EVERY finn related song. He's always singing about me. Ill go for 'when you come' and thats all Ill say on the matter.
8. toothpicks or dental floss? floss, my sister is a dentist and gets it for free!! Lucky me huh! My brother is a plastic surgeon, I wont tell you what he gave me for free.
9. What is your favorite incense/ essential oil? I dont really have a fav. I change a lot. At the moment lemon is in the lamp ring.
11. If you could have any wild animal as a pet(as in whale, skunk, etc...) what would you have?
Theres a crazy mouse living in my avairy that thinks its a bird - it sits on the perches next to the birds. But the wild animal I would choose would be an elephant.
What do you listen to the most music wise other than Finn stuff?
Your not going to believe this but I honestly dont listen to anything else except Neil Finn...hence the sign in name. Im not a big listener of music, only in the car and I only have neil in the car...always have since I got my licence back 20 years ago.
What music do your kids like and do you agree with their tastes?
Yeah its pretty tame. I have to say, its what they see in some of the music videos that bothers me the most.
Did you like school? What did you love most/hate most about it?
I hated school. Im not sure why. I guess cause I wasnt good at it and I dont like rules. Ofcourse Im a teacher now!
What is your biggest regret in life?
My career. I still hate school but for different reasons than when I was a kid. Or maybe not. I would like to be something else.
What are you ideal nights in and out?
In: winter, fire, Baileys irish cream/ Out: hot sultry night on the beach, Baileys irish cream.....and someone nice to share them with.
What is the nicest thing anyone every said to you?
The other day an electrician at our house told me I was 'hot'!! My friend said that means he made a pass at me. I didnt even know!! I think 'I love you' is the nicest thing anyone has said to me. I appreciate hearing it now that I am older and understand its implications better than when I was younger.
Who is someone you admire and why?
I admire lots of people who possess values that I consider important in a person - like honesty, integrity. I admire anyone who has raised children to become great adults cause that is a difficult thing to do. I really admire those people who are really fat and they lose lots of weight and then they look terrific. I know that sounds funny, but its true. Its hard to do and you have to admire it.
What is something you've always wanted to do or try?
Drive a racing car really really really fast. Or a motor bike.
What is your favorite part of being a parent?
Unconditional love. And you get a chance to be a kid again..watch cartoons, play nintendo etc.
If you were given the opportunity to be Neil Finn's roadie, would you do it?
Oh, thanks Lisa but I've already had a turn (and I've been so busy I didn't get a chance to post any questions for you, sorry!). Being the youngest in a huge family I naturally crave attention but I really should let everyone else have a go first. Anyway, I don't think we've heard from Anselm or Silke or Sue or Gen or... a bunch of other people.
