Spotlight on Jendeis

Jendeis is one of the many women of her generation who blog. Amy at Crunchy Domestic Goddess recently sat down with Jendeis to talk with her about life, love and this recent blogging phenomenon.

A: For all of the newbies to your blog, Sell Crazy Someplace Else, could you please share with us a bit about Jendeis?

J: (demure smile) Of course. I'm a lawyer and art historian by training, and a crazy person by birth. I work at my job. I'm married to my DH, John Dear. We have a dog, The Boy.

A: Interesting. What little known fact about you might surprise some of your readers?

J: Well, um (hesitant). At this point, I'm not sure that my readers would be surprised by anything that I come up with, but, OH! How 'bout this? I once won a team scavenger hunt in college by carting around a toilet in my car.

A: Um -- yeah. Anyways. Chocolate or vanilla?

J: Oh, definitely vanilla.

A: I see from your blog that you are a fan of FlyLady. What are your favorite pieces of advice from her site?

J: Let's see... What's been very useful to me has been FlyLady's urging to use a timer during cleaning and organizing. When the timer goes off, I'm done! I also repeat one of her mantras, "just 15 minutes!" all the time to encourage myself and John Dear to accomplish necessary tasks. Finally, I've really been working on laying out my clothes and work bag at night so I'm all ready to go in the mornings.

A: Yes, I see how that would be helpful. Let's say you are going to be stranded with your family on a deserted island for 90 days. What 3 things would you take with you and why?

J: Hmm, that's an interesting question. The addition of my family (I'm considering that to be just me, JD and The Boy) changes my answer. I would bring food for 90 days, a solar-powered laptop with Internet for JD and one of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books for me.

A: Oh, the laptop is a great idea! Thanks Jendeis for your participation in this interview process.

J: Thank you.

Now, it's your turn. If you would like to be interviewed, please leave me a comment that includes the words, "interview me." I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions. If you don't have a valid email address available on your blog, please provide one.

You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
