Only you can take a straightforward set of questions and turn them into a rich, adventurous journey that leaves the reader wondering how to lead a better life.
You're a unique and wonderful person, Naomi. Regarding your list of people you'd surround yourself with, I agree completely with you, with one exception: I'd add you to the list.
Carmi is right, what a unique outlook you have. And the last question? I'd support you for President ANY DAY! Are you thining of running? Please?
Hi Naomi! First, I apologize for posting this question in the comment box relating to Deana's questions! But, I was not able to find an email address for you...or possibly, my poor old slow computer just hadn't loaded all of your info yet! Anyway...I know of you and your blog thru Michele's, have visited here numerous times, tho you may not remember me. Anyway...why am I posting? My cousin is visiting me and we were talking genealogy all afternoon and got stuck on some info regarding my great Uncle...Stanley Wilson ( http://www.cnpa.com/Bulletin/index1.html)
and his wife Billie of Palm Springs/LA. (link above can explain who he was) My question is: Did you by any chance know him or his wife Bille? I know it's a long shot, but thought I'd ask you! Any info would be wonderful! Thanks!
Wonderful questions and answers! This really showcases two interesting minds, and I really wish I had just one of those magic wands! Can I be your vice president?
I loved your choice for young gun/hollywood legend....I DO think JD will sustain!
Michele sent me tonight!
Wonderful answers to great questions! I vote we send Naomi to DC with that magic wand! Who's with me?
Wow Naomi you did such a great job answering these! Like Carmi I felt like I was on a journey and I was so excited to see what you had down....each one was incredible. I could just see you in the Amex commercial AND with your wands...that was your best answer by the way!!! I think you SHOULD take the wands and head east!
I agree with Depp. I also think Leonardo DiCaprio might just have it in him too!
What a wonderful ride you took us on with your answers!! I enjoyed that very much! Now how do I get one of those magic wands?? hee hee
Have a wonderful weekend my friend!
Naomi, that sounds like a great dinner party! And wonderful backyard guests. I think I would like a giraffe that would let me feed him carrots from my mouth (they kiss you at the same time and are very gentle - lol). Hello from Michele.
I second that vote for you to go into office!!!
Naomi come and be PM here - we need you. I loved your list, although I didn't know all of them you described them perfectly.
Lena Horne- the hours I spent trying to sing Honysuckle rose just like her. She was beautiful - right through
Michele says hi!
I loved reading this post!!!
I totally agree with Johnny Deep...he's so talented...and I love that he always goes for an interesting character...
I would love to sit at your commercial table as well;)
Have a great one:)
I'd like to be behind the scenes while that commercial is being shot, or a fly on the wall. :)
Johnny Depp DOES have IT!
I agree totally.
What a wide range of abilities he has.
Johnny Depp is yummy :)
Depp... he's MY man. What a brilliant and talented actor. Such depth. We just watched Edward Scissorhands last night. One of my favorites!
I agree with you - Johnny Depp is a legend right now. He is so unconventional and multi-talented!
Your answers are wonderful - I would love to be a fly on the wall at that dinner!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading that. I would love to be at that dinner table. I would be a hoot to just sit back and listen!
michele sent me today.
What a marvellous post!! Thank you so much for sharing.
Here via Michele today
Depp does have an amazing ability to transcend roles, Naomi. I don't know about Halle Barry though. She's so beautiful and quite an actress but I keep getting a feeling that behind the scenes she has a problem with success.
Patriot Act. This administration has an insidious tendency to put red-white-blue labels on activities that are nearly treasonous to try to make them palatable to the public. It's scary how often they succeed with their PR attempts.
Great questions! And fantastic answers!!! I think the mastercard ad table would be much better as a dinner table. Man, I would love to have dinner with that crowd!
Michele sent me today!
i love these...great questions even better answers...bravo...stay safe
Wonderful stuff Naomi!! I loved your answers! I wish you could get to do that commercial with the ones you have chosen! How fun would that be??!!!
Oh, if only you had a magic wand!
And the deer, how sweet that would be if they all came daily to eat from your hands!!
Ohhhhhhhh my heavens! I came in here this morning but after reading the first question new that I did NOT have time at that moment for THIS visit! So I left and came back with my 3rd cup of coffee! SHE really did ask some AWESOME questions! But you really gave some MAGNIFICENT answers! I don't think I could have answered that first question... it would have taken me 5 months and a ton of research to decide on WHO I would choose! You're amazing! But then again ... celebrities R your life!
As for your last answer... whew! That wand hand mega-magic in the hand of Naomi! LOL!!!
Great post, Naomi, I enjoyed it! I
like the questions and your answers, too. Those meme is interesting because allow us to know more about you!
Thanks for your visit and nice comment on my place. I am looking forward to see your beautiful bookshelves. By the way I remember I see them when you post photos of your birthday!
Have a great week! Hugs!
Where do I sign up to donate money for airfare, or fairy dust for the wands? We need you desperately in D.C.!
What a great post - so readable and a great way to know you even better and also I'm impressed of what you know!
Your wish for the Deer family was so cute. we have similar kinds in the Norwegian woods you know.
Btw: Thanks for your visit and comments and I'm glad you like the red hatted Lady:-)
gee, it doesn't pay to come late when you post! Everyone has said it all! lol..
love Depp, and agree DiCaprico may have the right stuff too. Too many actors are famous for how much money they make rather then they excellent acting abilities.
A most interesting set of questions and the scenerio you set up appears to have all the elements of grand conversation with loving and understanding dinner companions....each thoughtfully chosen by a grand hostess.
What unique questions! You're doing great so far. You are quite articulate and I'm with ya on Halle Barry! Johnny Depp's face has a beautiful angular bone structure.
Love getting to read more about your thoughts, and feelings on things:-). I think it would be fun to sit with you and discuss our different views on politics. I think we would have fun:-). Thanks for answering these wonderful questions you have been sent.
Have a great evening!
Lady of the Hills,
Frankly, given the thoughtfulness of your answers, and the details you provide, I think YOU would be one of the most interesting people to have dinner with !!!
Happy Monday !
Your magic wand would get rid of 99% of the Congress and DC would be a ghost town. This would include Bill and Hilary as well as the current administration and of course Ted Kennedy and John Kerry. A magic wand would be nice to create peace... unfortunately there is more at work in the world than magic could ever cure.
Interesting set of questions as usual. Halle Berry is berrylicious! I hope I can ship the deers around my house into your garden hehehehhehe. Also I agree that Johnny Depp is indeed a legend in Hollywood as well!
Very unique answers, Namomi, and very "you."
I so agree on Depp...love his acting and from what I know, love him as a person.
All great answers and I enjoyed reading them. (And to Deana...great questions too.)
I love your answers, Naomi. :)
And your dinner guests are fascinating and thought-provoking.
I love that your have a variety of magic wands, as if each one has its specialty! lol
Enjoyed reading this.
I like your responses and choices. I'm especially fond of Lena Horne from when I was a young child and first saw her in "Cabin In The Sky." I'm a fan of few, but have been of her always. Loved seeing her one woman Broadway show on PBS a few years ago -- when in her seventies she seductively gradually lowered herself toward the stage and THEN was able to come back up again.
Your answer to the dinner party was fantastic! Such interesting people to have!
And I agree with you about Depp. I think his looks got him in the door...and his talent, unique perspective & unconventionality keep him going!
