(Every Friday I interview a different person and share that interview with you. Perhaps they will be a fellow-author. Perhaps one of my neighbors. Maybe the bagger at the grocery store. A member of my family. A follower of this blog. Maybe it will be you! Hey, it could happen.)
I had something rather enjoyably spectacular planned for this week's INFF. It was going to be awesome. The comments would have reached astronomical proportions.
The Fates conspired against me!
Trust me, you should be thoroughly disappointed. Never fear, however! I intend to make another attempt at my ingenious plan at a future date.
Unfortunately, that means today's INFF is going to be lame. As my way of acknowledging the inherent lameness of today's offering, I am giving DOUBLE entries for comments. That's right folks, 1 comment = 2 entries in January's giveaway.
SME: Welcome to INFF! Today we are going to take a look back at the last 21 weeks of INFF interviews by revisiting the one question that cannot possibly be answered incorrectly:If you'd like to be interviewed for "I Need Friends" Friday, shoot me off an email: friends at sarahmeden dot com!What is your favorite continent?
Have you wondered where each continent ranks? Wondered why my INFF friends chose the continents they did? (You probably haven't, but I'm sort of banking on your curiosity here--or at least your cooperation.)
Here ya go:
- Rebecca Irvine: I served a mission in London and had the best vacation ever in Paris and London two years ago. Love it over there!
- Rachel Starr Thomson: I love Europe for its history.
- Rachel Rager: I've always been fascinated with Europe. I don't really know why.
- Heather Justesen: After much debate, I decided it must be Europe because it's where I most want to visit.
- Rachel Rossanno: So much culture in such a small space.
- Aubrey Mace: They have cream cheese, right?
- Marsha Ward: I lived there for two years. The avocados are HUGE! And, ya know, food is important when you're picking your favorite continent.
- Andrew Turley: I believe South America received a shout out last week. I'll have to second that, considering my time spent in the Andes.
- Rachel Rager: My mom lived there as a girl.
- Liz Swick: It more than doubles in size during the winter because the ocean freezes. THE. OCEAN. FREEZES.
- Engelbert, age 8: There are a lot of styles of fighting here. Karate, Taekwondo, Jujitsu, Ningitso, Kungfu.
- Steve Busch: It has giraffes and, really, who doesn't love a good giraffe?
- Hubert, age 9: It's the freest! *arms in the air*
- Jean Henry Mead: North America, from North Pole, Alaska to Ensenada, although I love Hawaii and its people.
- Rachel Starr Thomson: I love North America because without it, my life would be very different.
- Edward Cullen: North America, I suppose. *crooked smile* That is where I met Bella, after all.
- Bertha, age 6: North America. That's probably everybody's favorite.
SME: Why do you think that?
Bertha: Because I live there.
- Miss Mae: This is the only one I've been on, so I'd have to say it's my favorite...North America.
- Shantel Gardner: North America. I am boring. But I like to be at home
- Penney: I've loved America forever! North America!
- Ashleigh Miller: Gotta represent, ya'know.
- SME: North America is great. It's definitely in my top seven.
SME: Hey. I tried.*cue exit music* Well, this has been "I Need Friends" Friday. Come back next week when I will actually make another friend!!
I am looking for anyone and everyone, whether or not you think you are interesting. You'll get a fantastic stick figure portrait of yourself, a little promotion (if you're looking for that sort of thing) and the opportunity to tell your friends and family that you've been interviewed by SME, er... by ME!
