Penguins and Pen Theft

30 Sep


It’s that post again. Yes, another thank you post! I just want to say a big thank you to all 2,600 awesome readers. I have no idea what kind of a writer I would be without all of you… probably not a writer at all. That would be sad 😦 So you have my sincerest gratitude! Lots and lots of thanks guys!

Since I don’t want to leave my thank you post as that, I’ve decided to do something fun! Now, instead of writing 7 boring random facts about myself, I searched for weird job interview questions to answer. Clever eh?

Here are 7 of them and my answers:

#1 How many cows are in Canada? Asked Google

As many as Canada wants to have.

#2 A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? Asked Clark Construction Group

Great, another runaway from the zoo. He’s probably the guy you thought you would be interviewing next. If you know what I mean, cough*Madagascar*cough.

#3 What songs best describe your work ethic? Asked Dell

Do you hear that fantasy movie soundtrack? Yup… that’s it! Epic. (The one playing in my head right now is from Pirates Of The Caribbean.)

#4 How would people communicate in a perfect world? Asked Novell

The world will never be perfect, but the perfect communication would be face to face.

#5 My wife and I are going on vacation, where would you recommend? Asked PricewaterhouseCoopers

Narnia? The best vacations are in your head, but if you really must go somewhere… I would say Malaysia. Our food is just so good!

#6 What kitchen utensil would you be? Asked

Isn’t this obvious? A knife. Sharp and fast. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a knife, right? O.k, maybe just me…

#7 Have you ever stolen a pen from work? Asked Jiffy Software

You’ve got to be real low to steal a pen. I don’t steal anything. I have put my days of stealing coins from my dad’s coin box behind me (I was 8 and I wanted ice-cream).

Now weren’t those fun? Seriously, I wish job interview questions were more creative like these.

You know, I’m kinda interested in seeing your answers to these questions. So pick one and answer it in the comments below!

Well, that’s it for my 26th thank you post! If you have not read my latest picture storybook, you can download it HERE for free. So till our next vacation in my head, don’t be a pen thief!

(Current blog post schedule: A post every Thursday alternating between a Harry Potter fan fiction and an original short story.)

      Haha! Nah, that’s not it. I set all my comments to being moderated 🙂 So I know when there’s a new comment and I can reply to it.

    Congrats again! As for questions-
    Have you ever stolen a pen from work?
    That would require having an actual job, so…

      Thanks! Haha, yea… that question wouldn’t apply to fresh grads either.

    Hi Jeyna,
    Your answer to Novell, can use your answer as a quote in a concept paper I’m preparing for the PTA?
