a bumblebee and a Remy at a carnival.

that was my question of the day…now let’s open up the floor to all of you. ask me anything.

well, anything other than why the first image is so blurry…because then you might get a long-winded answer about how i am desperately seeking a Nikon D80…and my dad had one (and a D70) and he sold them both on ebay so he could get his brand-spanking new D300. wah!

so…what’s your pleasure? want to know what i’m listening to right now? (i’m rocking some Jet on WMP…no itunes at work, sadly) what i ate for lunch yesterday? (peanut butter. on a spoon. again, sadly)  where i had my first kiss? (in my parents garage, the summer before 7th grade)

ali is an open book today. the floor is yours. ask away.

  1. okay…. I haven’t searched through all of your archives, but how did you come upon interviewing celebs?

    Is this what you’re looking for?

    Oh, and if you were an animal what would you be? (HA HA HA — LOVE those from university – NOT)

  5. How did you choose your children’s names? Are they named for people or did you just like them?

  6. Hi, Ali! I love your blog, but this is my first time posting a comment (I’m delurking!). I’m dying to know — How did you meet your husband, and why did you decide to get married at such a young age?

    Comment by Rae on March 18, 2008

  14. I know this is a weird question, but if you had the option to get veneers on your teeth – would you?
    (that’s not a hint that you have bad teeth – it’s just that all the celebrities are doing it and I hear in like 10 years it’s not so good.)

  16. Wow everyone has such great questions that I can’t think of one to add. I’d like to know all those things, especially the name question. I also have a great curiosity as to why people choose the names they do for their kids. (especially celebs but that’s a whole other story)

    Oh and peanut butter on a spoon (or cracker) is a perfectly acceptable lunch imho!

  30. I WOULD ask “coffee or tea?” but it seems you are clearly more of a coffee person. Or so I have gleamed…
