We loved each other cyber-ly & have had the chance to hang out in real life since then.
I have been wanting to interview her for quite some time.
At our designated meeting/interview time, we were chagrined to find that Yogurt Bliss was closed for New Year's Day.
Who does that?
So we found ourselves at Coney's Custard & Gourmet Dogs.
Cailey: (hands clasped) Obviously, purple.
Cailey: Is Costa Vida considered a food? Well then, Costa Vida it is. I am kind of picky, but also I am kind of weird. For example, I like Tuna fish & pickles & grilled cheese with Peanut Butter & Jelly.
3. If you had to choose parents other than your own, who would they be?
Cailey: (said without a shadow of a doubt) Sandra Bullock, without question. Do I have to have a Dad? I guess I would grow up really weird & pregnant without a Dad so... (smacks table) Clark Kent it is!
4. Song that describes your life?
Cailey: "I Wanna Marry My Stalker." And yes that is a real song. I would sing it for you right now...
5. Two snacks you could eat everyday?
Cailey: Reese's, Baked Lays & Dr. Pepper--aww that's three...dang it. Alright Lays & Dr. Pepper.
6. Favorite childhood memory?
Cailey: Oh! My 3rd Birthday my brother gave me rocks! I mean I don't really remember it, but I have seen it on video. The thing is I only remember the bad things, like when little neighbor kids would leave me out & not play with me. Apparently that still holds to me...
7. If you were trapped in a TV show for a month, what would you want it to be?
Cailey: A tie between The Office & Gilmore Girls or Psych. Such a hard question. Gillmore Girls or Psych. Final answer. I secretly want to date Sean.
8. Why do you blog?
Cailey: I blog for me. Thank you television ad. I blog because it's fun. I like looking back on things & to remember. I find it fun & therapeutic. (at this point Cailey proceeds to play footsie with me, until she realizes her mistake & pulls her foot far away from me, well as far as the table will let her.)
9. Biggest Accomplishment?
Cailey: Once when I was 5 I climbed Mt. Everest. Kidding. I have been fretting about this question all day. I knew you were going to ask it! Alright, once I typed 97 words per minute. Pretty impressive. It went on the fridge. Note: Big #!
10. New Years Resolution?
Cailey: I was talking with my parents about this very thing today. I am perfect & therefore do not need any resolutions. Alright, I'll go for the obvious one. Get healthier, yep I am jumping on that bandwagon.
|At this point, we were interrupted by the following group of people|
over yonder. Small family reunion or something.
Cailey: 1st I wondered, is there another option, like do I need a pinky or a liver? I mean appendix, not liver. Why do I need an appendix? Fine ok. No eyelashes. Because I could get fake blue ones. Because think about it, eyebrows never will grow back the same.
12. Favorite clothing item?
Cailey: I thought you were going to ask this. I am practically Raven right now. I like t-shirts, sports bras & occasionally pants.
13. Favorite scripture?
Cailey: Alma 41:10. Wickedness never was happiness. I know this to be true. I say these things...
Cailey: I have kidney disease. Although it doesn't really affect me, so I often forget I have it. They could stop any moment, but I mean I guess your kidney's could too.
15. Wildest dream?
Cailey: I have so many. Hmmm I secretly want to be a Dallas Cowboy's cheerleader. TVO all of them religiously.
16. Pet peeve?
Cailey: I knew this was coming. I hate when my finger nail polish chips. I will honestly just remove it if even one nail chips. Doesn't even matter if I painted them the night before.
17. Favorite book?
Cailey: Hearts in Hiding. It was the book that got me into reading.
18. Favorite celebrity?
Cailey: Sandra Bullock, hands down. Don't have to even think about it. While You Were Sleeping is my favorite. Could watch that one for the rest of my life.
Cailey: This question always baffles me. I am very open. I really love funny pajamas. I should be embarrassed, but I am not.
20. Worst memory?
Cailey: Hard. Very hard. When I had to drop off my brother on his mission & then go straight to girls camp. Told the girls not to talk to me for a week. Rough, very rough.
21. What would you do if you were given a spare $100?
Cailey: I would buy a ridiculous amount of young & reckless t-shirts or 2 sweatshirts, maybe?
22. Favorite saying?
Cailey: I knew this was going to come. Man, I am a creep. Alright, well last night I was searching through my journal & it said: "Sometimes you just gotta act like Peter Pan." I thought that was clever. Good thing I read my journal last night.
Cailey: Mexico. Because it's the only place I have ever really vacationed.
24. What do you hoped to have accomplished by the time you are 80 years old?
Cailey: I hope to be married at least 7 times. Kids. I want those. Really, I just want to be married in the temple & have kids that I have raised well, & of course grand kids that I can spoil.
25. Nicest thing someone has done for you?
Cailey: (scrunches nose) One time my sister was throwing a New Year's Party & she wouldn't let me come. So then my other sister let me hang out with her at her boyfriend's house & we made Rice Krispy treats. I haven't ever forgotten that.
26. Final Words?
Cailey: I'm so glad to have one of my life goals fulfilled, being apart of this interview. I can die happy. I am also happy to be here at Coney's Frozen Custard & Gourmet Dogs. Can I say more? Also, this table is very squishy. I really hope one day I can play in the sewers with you, Ashley. Alright. I am done.
