Me, Myself and Jana: Q&A with the sports writer

In lieu of not being as special as my editor, Michelle Rogers, I've decided the best way to publish a Q&A about me is to ask the questions myself. Ms. Rogers was recently hounded by hordes of fans at the university level for her experience and poise and contributions to the journalism industry. She was thoroughly interviewed, and the transcript from that conversation can be seen below.

I have fans, but most of them are simply Facebook friend requests from high school boys. For those wonderful fans of mine, who I don't want to feel left out or unimportant, I will now publish an interview with me so my avid readers know a little bit more about moi.

Q&A Time!!

1. What is your name?
Jana. If anyone sees paraphernalia with that name stenciled on it, please make the purchase. I will pay you back. I have difficulty finding key chains and pencils with my name on it.

2. Where were you born?
Detroit, baby! No I'm not hard enough. I was born in Ann Arbor and raised in Saline.

3. What is your favorite word?
Vivacious. The letter "v" is a sexy letter, so this word rolls off the tongue. Being vivacious is sweet, too.

4. What is your least favorite word?
"No." Don't like hearing it; don't like saying it.

5. What turns you on?
Coffee and chocolate... oh, and good books.

6. What turns you off?
Cubicles and spiders.

7. What sound do you love?
Rain and Van Morrison's voice

8. What sound do you hate?
Utensils screeching on plates

9. What is your favorite curse word?
*&#$.... Those symbols don't mean anything because I don't curse, right mom?

10. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I originally wanted to change majors (I graduated with a sports management degree, not a journalism degree) to film and video studies. I would love to try my hand at film editing and producing. I've already written a handful of screenplays.

11. What profession would you not like to do?
Anything that has me stuck in one spot with no freedom or change. Office Space is my worst nightmare realized.

12. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
I took the courtesy of ordering you a coffee... oh, and you'll be sitting next to Van Morrison for the whole of eternity...

In conclusion, no one will read this, but it was just as fun filling out as those forwarded friend surveys I get sometimes. I hope my singular fan in Alaska (shout out!) feels a little bit closer to home now. Perhaps in the future, more questions will be asked by me of me. Here's hoping...

Also, for those of you oblivious to the amazing show that is Inside the Actor's Studio with James Lipton on Bravo, these questions come straight from that show. Tune in sometime. It's amazing.

Hey...just wanted to let you know that someone (who isn't a high schooler on Facebook) actually DID read your blog post all the way to the end.
