    I had a boyfriend when I lived up north that I cheated on repeatedly with some guy from another town. He kept on hanging around and I kind of strung him along, then broke up with him finally, and he came to my door with a ring in his hand, hoping I'd stay. I turned him down. I guess the stupid shit you do eventually bites you in the ass though - I'll refer back to the story about my cheating ex-husband in my prior post. Karma! Everything comes back to you.... Also in my twenties there were a couple of boyfriends I'd hurt badly by breaking up with them in order to date someone else. One boyfriend and I reconnected years later and I apologized for how immature I'd been. It felt good to say sorry about it.

    At Coachella 2011 I met Danny Devito during a golf cart ride, and he asked me to come hang out with him and see the Chemical Brothers. I said no because I was going to meet my friend for Robyn's set. That decision haunts me to this day.

    Why would say no to this? I think your friend would have understood 100%.

    What is the best luck you've ever had?

I subsequently finished the bottle and was dancing wildly in the living room with a couple of other equally drunk people. A few were encouraging me to slow down when I started drinking JD and Coke, as the CR was all gone. But I'm the kind of drinker that when I get drunk enough, I don't really know the stopping point. After that it's fuzzy- I remember being in the bathroom sitting on the loo with some of my colleagues opening the door repeatedly and laughing. Not sure how I got home but I was really unwell the next day, to the point where I considered going to hospital. I honestly believe I got the first wrinkles I'd ever had on my face because of that night. And I never drank Crown Royal again.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Like I said, the decision haunts me. My friend gave me total shit afterwards, along with everyone else I know.

    The best luck I ever had was meeting the person who was the catalyst in changing my career. After I got out of radio I got into a sales job for a retail appliance company. I did it for several years and eventually the real estate market boomed and I was serving several home builders and their customers. We had about 20 staff that all took appointments from the builder clients to upgrade their products, and we had hundreds of bookings a week. It was madness. I ended up getting a booking for a couple and upgraded them to some built ins and a few nicer items. I explained all the mechanical benefits and features, got them all the technical specs, worked with the kitchen company on measurements and did all the customer service follow up. A few days later the guy leaves me a voice mail - and I'm thinking, crap. He's going to cancel his order, or something's gone wrong. I called him and he told me he thought I did a great job and did I know what Technical Recruiting was. I said no. He asked if I knew what IT was. I said no. He told me he wanted to explain it to me and I should come meet him, that he thought I'd be good at it. The result was my getting into a career that I loved, developing a passion for technology, training, and going back to school for my HR certification. Meeting that person, making that sale, changed my whole life. Best luck I could have ever hoped for.

    My only recent sex is with my spouse. It's been him for a long time.

    Probably when I was waiting to get out if the hospital after surgery, and I wouldn't be discharged until I could "deliver". It took 3 days and by the time it happened I was so happy I nearly cried. It wasn't very enthusiastic but enough to get me a release note.

    The question was not name only people you have had sex with recently. The question was name the three people you have had sex with most recently. So, your spouse, and then the 2 prior. Proceed.

    I saw Blood Brothers when I was young and loved it. A couple years ago I went to see Oliver - I also performed in Oliver as a kid so that was nice to see from the audience. I would love to see Sweeney Todd, and Mamma Mia.

    I'll be the first to say you made the right choice. That Robyn set was fucking awesome.

    What kind of surgery did you have that you couldn't shit for 3 days?!

    Which board member would you be most likely to give deliberately bad advice to if they were to ask you for guidance re: applying for a job/composing their resume/following up after an interview?

    While I have to say I loved Robyn's set, it's just the "what if" of that situation I regret. I think he'd be fabulous to party with and let's face it, Danny Devito is like the freaking Wizard of Oz at Coachella. He could go/do/see whatever/wherever he wanted.

    I had to have major abdominal surgery for a chronic problem and it was a long recovery. It just caused a major disruption to my system overall. Plus going under general anesthetic can cause problems with that too. I have had trouble with anesthesia in the past so I wasn't surprised.

    Not to sound like Mary Fucking Poppins here, but I'm a professional. I would give good and solid employment advice to anyone - no matter who was asking. People on here may fuck around and act like dicks to people on the board sometimes, but let's face it - this is an entertainment space. The dicks are part of the entertainment. It's no reason to try and mess with someone's livelihood.

    I have done a lot of travel to Victoria in the last year but it was for work. We had considered relocating there to get away from the Calgary winters and to be near the water. But here at home the cost of living is much better and making the move to a far more expensive place wouldn't be beneficial for us. We'll just suck up the winters for now I guess. However I do think Victoria is beautiful and the right size of city for me to feel comfortable. I think I'd be very at home there. I'm not in any way hippie like though, but my older sister is. She has lived in Victoria previously and now lives out in the woods in Vancouver area.

    My next vacation will probably in Mexico as we're talking about going to an all inclusive to celebrate my spouse's 40th. Or we may spend a few days in NYC instead. Still in planning mode.

    my standard question:

    A large theatre company did a production of Blood Brothers here when I was around 16. My family was heavily entrenched in the theatre community so my parents were involved in the production, and I had the chance to see it performed more than once. I fell in love with the music and the story and cried my eyes out. When I was in London this last year I wanted to see it, but we were limited for time and had other music performances we were committed to, so I was very disappointed to miss it.

    Looking back on my romantic life, I don't think I have that one person I wished could have worked out and didn't. There is someone I met while on vacation a number of years ago that lives very far away from me, and our circumstances made it impossible for us to make a relationship work. It was hard because we still had feelings for eachother and of course I still think fondly of him. You always kind of wonder.. what if? But I don't really pine away for anyone from my past, if that's what you mean.
