The Miss Neo Pageant Personal Interview

Q: How do you measure success?

With a centigrade thermometer connected to a rubber band to a revolving door.

Q: When is the last time you failed? How did you handle it?

The other day I wrote a newsletter for work and I listed an event with the wrong date. It’s supposed to be May 28th and I’d written May 21st. I got an email pointing out the mistake and I apologized. And I corrected it. But the truth is, I don’t check my work well, and I’m aware that’s something I should work on. But I haven’t worked on it as much as I should.

Q: What do you see when you look in the mirror?

A lot of the same things I’ve seen for years and then usually one of two new things.

Q: How are you different from the other contestants?

I am the only contestant not from the midwest.

I am the only contestant with curly hair.

I live alone (with my pet space heater).

Q: Why do you want to win this pageant?

Because it was my idea in the first place.
