Today's interview is with Angie Marshall. I think introductions here are pretty much uncalled for, so here we go:
Who are you? What do you?
Angie Marshall, Legal Assistant is my paying job, but I am a Farm wife, mother of 3, a knitter, a former quilter and a half-assed gardener. I have multiple knitting projects OTN currently, but most consistently, I knit socks.
Merino or Blue Faced Leicester?
Either is awesome, but I will admit a fondness for Merino.
Lets talk about technology: What kind of technology do you use, and what's the coolest thing that technology enables for you? What about your technology do you find frustrating?
I use a palm centro for a phone, but alas, no interwebs connection from that. I like that it keeps my names/addresses/calendar at hand, but I am frustrated that i can't create I have an iPod touch that 98% of the time I use to listen to inspirational speeches or podcasts or audio books. I have music on it, but... meh. I have Scrabble and Soduko applications on it and I love them. This iPod frustrates me because I cheaped out on it and didn't get a big enough one so I am constantly juggling what gets put on it. I love my laptop, but wished the battery held more charge.
Favorite book you've read in the last year? Runners up?
Hanging my head in shame... the Twilight series. I listen to audiobooks mostly, but I did read those in real book form. I read for entertainment.
What do you think was the most important event of the last 15 years?
The election of our current President.
What do you think will be of the next 10?
I look forward to our scientific minds developing a fuel source that doesn't depend on foreign oil. I hope that we take the lessons learned from this last war and we return to a self-sufficiency mindset so that we never again make the mistake of sending our troups to war over oil. >
One thing that you're most looking forward to in the next year?
Getting better control of my life, cutting back to a 4 day work week (affirming, affirming), vacation, knitting camp, fresh asparagas morel mushrooms
One thing that you wish you could learn?
Spanish, there is such a need for spanish speakers in all areas of employment. My French from long ago High School, just isn't much help.
Cats vs. Dogs?
Cats in the house, Dogs outside. Nothing like a warm cat "spot" (or 2 or 4) on a cold morning or a sick day.
Where can we find more about you/your projects?
