lechatron interviews jette

1. When was the last time you and your family went on vacation? Where did you go? Why? and why has it been so long?!

Camp Mather. Summer 2003. We go every year. Unless you count Christmas with family, I don't. Although that is a vacation. It hasn't been so long, but we are planning our next one, during Easter vaction, either the White Mountains in Eastern Sierras or a springy wildflowery desert or both.

2. Was child birth the most physically/mentally painful thing you've ever done in your life? If not, what was?

No, raising them has been much harder. I don't want to go into the other pain in my life that I've felt in this response... but there are much harder things, although I will admit childbirth hurts a LOT. It really does feel like you are trying to pass a watermelon, definitely.

3. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Hrm, maybe in grad school or out of it, finally doing the policy work I've wanted to do. Perhaps I will be a politician, in the Bay Area, anything is possible.

4. 10 years ago did you see yourself where you are now?

I guess I wished I'd be further along. I am now where I wished I could have been ten years ago.

5. If you could only read 1 book (ONE BOOK!) for the rest of your life, what would it be? why?

Stop asking me this. I can not and will never decide. Okay, howabout a huge anthology of English and American Literature, taped to the Bible, taped to Graves' greek mythology books, taped to the collected works of Philip K Dick and Heinlein plus something useful like a dictionary and the Tibetan Book of the Dead?
