Job Interview Questions

There are a host of silly reoccurring job interview questions that I have come across. I always sit there in my uncomfortable suit trying to answer them, filtering out all the answers I really want to give. So in honor of all my readers seeking employment, I am embarking on a series of posts dedicated to answering those job interview questions. So here goes my real answer unedited (ok, not totally unedited, but much less filtered than when I'm wearing panty hose):

1. If you could invite 5 guests to your dinner party who would they be and why?

a. John Irving. I have an intellectual crush on him (Does my husband know? Now he does as he happens to be a loyal Spinach blog reader)

b. Carmindy from What Not to Wear. She's cute. She's nice. She's got good makeup tips. Who can't use some makeup tips?

c. Jimi Hendrix. I just want to touch his hands. And listen to him sing. And play the guitar. And...(that's where the filtering kicks in.)

d. Audrey Hepburn (in her late 20's). I'd show her a picture of me dressed up as Holly Golightly for Halloween. And of course she would tell me that I am the spitting image of her. I'd probably spend the whole night practicing my posture and trying to make my neck as long as hers.

e. Hitler (before the Holocaust). I'd poison him in the first course foregoing the entire Holocaust. Yes, I have seen Back to the Future and boo on you for asking.

So there. It would be a lovely dinner party. I would be dressed impecably. The food would please everyone (I obviously wouldn't cook it) and it would be held somewhere other my small apartment which has no proper dining table. Everyone (with the exception of Hitler who is dead after the first course anyway) speaks English and will have something to contribute.

Lol---sounds like a very interesting dinner party. I'll be checking my mailbox for my invitation!

I'll just sneak in and fill Hitler's chair after he, you know, kicks off!

I wonder how everyone would get along! And I fully understand the intellectual crush thing, I have one for Tom Robbins!

This is soo funny! I remember asking my husband this exact question because it's one of those questions that may come up when he's interviewing in the winter
