Wednesday Interview: Barbara Jacobucci

Good Morning! It has been a difficult week for me, but my is computer back and all is well.
I have just found out I am addicted to my computer, because I went through withdrawel last week, I ws at the libary almost every day:but so was everyone else in Charleston.
On with myinterview
Barb Jacabucci is a special friend. She was the first person to post on my blog, so I rushed over to read hers and yes, you guessed it. She was the first blog I posted on. She taught me everything I know about blogging ! If you need shoes, I'll bet she has the best advice.

Hello Barb, Glad you could join us this Morning! I see you have your Starbucks, being you live in the home of the greatest coffee shop in the world.
Wheres Mine? You came all the way from Seattle and didn't bring me Starbucks?
Wll, Really, I mean...oh. You brought me a complemtry sugar packet. From the original Starbucks store.
Thank you! I will treasure for the rest of my life, oir until my next cup of cofee....

i..What is the funnist post you ever wote?
This is a tough question, as I like to think that I write with humor. My pick would be Bless Me Father, For I Have Sinned. http://barbjacobucci.blogspot.com/2009/04/bless-me-father-for-i-have-sinned.html
My daughters choice is I Know What My Mom Did.

The saddest?
I know that I haven't really completely let my hair down into sadness. I'm sure that will come, the more comfortable I get with "getting real". I have expressed frustration in All The Signs Were There.

Why do You Blog?
Ever since I was a little girl, I have enjoyed writing. I dabbled in journalism when I was in high school, and evolved into story-telling as a grown-up. (My kids tell me that it is story-embellishment!) As a member of the search marketing industry, I have been drawn into social media. What a perfect home for me! I get to write, story-tell, and yes...story-embellish!

Is chocolate a Vegetable?
yes! and an appetizer, a main dish, a starch, a beverage, and a dessert!

What Blog changed you in someway. (post a link to it)
it wasn't a single blog, it was a blogger. Her name is Angel from Starting Over. I found her blog last year and the words jumped off the computer screen and landed on my heart. I knew that this was a woman that I wanted to read more about. She spoke with such emotion about life and it joys, trials, tenderness, love, challenges and constant hope. She writes about being a mother and a grandmother and about a recent move to a new city to Start Over. Wow! What courage. Whenever I read her blog posts it reminds me of how precious life is, and I am reminded that my life challenges are simply small blips on the radar. I have been so blessed with the opportunity to get to know Angel (via modern technology called email, Face book and instant messaging!) and now consider Angel my dear friend.

The trouble with women is....
We forget 'us'. We are quick to support and take care of others, but often forget that we should also be on the list of the people that we support and take care of. Why is this so hard?

Your son just graduated from High school, are you ready for empty nesting?
Yay for me (I mean him!) I have been preparing for this for quite some time. Two years ago, I developed my "Two Year Plan", based around the event of his high school graduation. Now that he has graduated, I am putting that plan into action. It has only been one week since graduation, so I am hoping that reality doesn't slap me in the face and I realize that this empty nest business ain't all its cracked up to be! Stay tuned.

Your funniest experience in Online dating?
I think that the "gentlemen" who didn't have any money at the end of the date was pretty funny. I kick myself for letting him off the hook by paying the bill myself. I should have let him sweat it out a little bit. All you can do about this point is laugh!

What relaxes you?
A good book! My favorites are crime novels! I love Grisham, Baldacci, Scotolini, etc.

How many social networks are you on?
Too many to count. I'm sure there are at least 20. The ones that get most of my attention are: Twitter, my blog, Facebook. I also spend some time on twittermoms, blogher...

Tell us something about you we don't know...
I won the coveted title (not!) of Miss Congeniality at the Junior Miss pageant at our high school during my senior year of high school. This cracks me up now! I am soooo not the little princess or pageant type person. I really don't know what possessed me to prance around on stage doing routines in long dresses! Things that make you go hmmmmmm.
