Prospective Friend Questionnaire

Remember my last post?  How we were going to California for a book signing and to meet Fishducky in person?  Well, we're here!  AND although we won't meet Fishducky until Tuesday, she sent me a questionnaire.  My answers are below.  
How would you have answered these epic questions?

    Why do you want this position?

There's only one Fishducky and although she's famous, she's not on Wikipedia yet. I actually searched for her there and I couldn't believe what Wikipedia "suggested" I search for instead. It's terrible, really:

This problem needs to be remedied--and as a friend I would fix this and write a Wikipedia article about what a "Fishducky" really is. . I'd also like the position--because Fishducky is awesome--obviously.

    Have you had friends previously?

2a)  If so, why did you leave them?

(I accidentally read this as: If so, why did you have them?)

Yes, because they let me make cakes, brownies and other desserts for them. They also generously allowed me to buy them massages and other gifts any time I wanted to.

2b)  How long did you have your last friend?

People who like my cakes and gift certificates have stayed around for months--even years!

    Would you be willing to work overtime if necessary?

                 That depends on the size of the cake. I'll make a four-layer beauty to keep friends, but I'm not willing to invest more time than that.  Also, I only purchase one massage a year--since I'm not as rich as J.K. Rowling.

    What was your previous salary?

4a)  There is no salary involved.  Would that be a problem?

This has never been a problem. I'm actually used to paying my friends to stick around.  Wait . . . am I missing something? Should this be a problem?


5)  Are you able to give me total loyalty?

5a)  Would you be willing to lay down your life for me?

I would lay down my life for you, but it depends on how. I'm not much on gunfire--or regular fire--I don't like suffocating (although I've yet to try it). I don't agree with drowning.  I'm also against humans, hurting each other or themselves. If it involves anything else, possibly jumping out of a plane for you (if I have a parachute) I'd probably do that.

          5b)  If not, why not?

See above explanation.

    If we had an argument, would you admit that I’m right?

             Yes . . . I mean, if that's how you'd answer this question. However you'd answer this is right.  Right?

Bonus question

What is the meaning of life?

Conrey & Ghosh have conjectured . . .

In other words . . . 42

But I beg to differ. I looked it up on Webster's and this is the meaning of life: "the animate existence or period of animate existence of an individual."

            Why are people always asking about the meaning of life when it's right in the dictionary?


  1. lol. I should save this and use as official application ;D

    your answers are funny and sweet , just like you :)

    1. YOU are so sweet :) I'd love to see how you'd answer these ;)

  2. Il ove this one, you're one funny chick. But what is this I hear of you coming to Ca and not asking to meet me? I live here too, you know? Some people would pay millions to have the pleasure to know me, not that I'm not humble or anything....Really though, I'd love to meet you in flesh and blood, I'm in socal too, just in the hot and dry high desert, shoot me an email if you want to see a real gorgeous, humble and fantastic Italian such as moi. :) Good luck on the book signing thing!

    1. I would LOVE to meet you. I think we're actually staying really close to where you live ;)

  3. Good luck with your fishducky interview,I think your answers on the application are brilliant!

    1. LOL! We're just getting ready to go meet her. This will be so fun.

  4. haha some very fun answers and hmm never knew the meaning of life was in the dictionary, they must be really smart.

  5. How exciting that you get to meet Fishducky!! I am still laughing over Wikipedia's search suggestion...hehehehehe!!!

  6. Awesome. Sadly, I would have failed at 2a.

    "After a while their bodies start to stink up my basement." ;)

  7. Oooh, there are some real toughies here. Still you managed to answer them with much flair and I'd be interested to read what questions YOU'D send Fishducky. Good luck with that interview.

    1. This is the best idea ever! I should send some questions to her, too *still smiling*

  8. Dear Elisa, you and Fishducky deserve one another--you both have a sense of the ridiculous in life!

    Enjoy your trip. Peace.

    1. I can't wait to see what we'll end up visiting about today. She's so hilarious--she could be a comedienne.

  9. I'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (Bring the application & $200.00 filing fee.)

  10. Is fishducky running for President. Charging a fee for an application - interesting way to try to raise money. A 4 layer cake may be worth more than the $200.00.

    Have fun in California!

    1. Don't need to run for President--I'm already QUEEN!!

    2. Rachelle, That 4 layer cake is AMAZING! Maybe I will bring it as a substitute . . . All the best queens love cake, right? ;)

  11. I'll make a gluten free layer cake. It's just as good and won't stick to your butt like glue. :)

    Now where did I put my plane tickets?

  12. Excellent answers. The job is yours. Everyone will hire you.
