Erin Doland: Unclutter Your Life in One Week
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Carpe Vitam -- Seize Life
Q. What do you regret most?
A. Turning down an in-person interview with Johnny Cash to go out on a date to see a Semisonic concert. This happened in 1996 or 1997, and I think even the members of Semisonic would agree I made the wrong choice.
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. According to my Top 25 Most Played list on iTunes, they appear to be "The Crane Wife 3" by The Decemberists, "Over My Head" by The Fray, "I Still Remember" by Bloc Party, "Hey Hey Girl" by The Virgins, and "Wave of Mutilation" by the Pixies.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. Tina Fey. She's in the business of making people laugh, and she does it so well.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. My paternal great grandfather Edward Rooney. He was born in 1887 and was one of the greatest criminal attorneys in Kansas history, if I'm to believe what my 100 year old grandmother says about him. I'd simply ask him to tell me stories about his life.
