Monday interviews

Today is all about interviews. I have followed in the footsteps of Tadpole and interviewed my Mom so you all can get to know her. Well, at least I tried.

J: Hi Mom, how are you today?
M: Fine, thanks for asking Joey.

J: So you have agreed to answer some questions so that MY friends can get to know you better, right?
M: Yes, Joey.

J: Ok, but you are clear that these are MY friends and not Tanner’s friends and certainly not YOUR friends?
M: You have always had a problem with sharing, you might want to work on that.
J: You might want to just answer the questions, ok?
M: Ok crabby pants.

J: So are you ready?
M: Yes, please begin I would like to read the newspaper.

J: When is Tanner leaving?
M: Joseph, Tanner is your brother and he is never leaving. It has been nearly two years, I think you should just accept the fact that he is staying.

J: Ok so like, not this month or anything, but maybe by 2008???
M: No.

J: 2009??????
M: Joey, next question.

J: Can I go live with Grandpa Gary and Gramma Kathy?
M: NO! I thought this interview was for people to learn about me and your dad?

J: Can DAD and I go live with Grandpa Gary and Gramma Kathy?
M: Joey, seriously, your blog friends are not going to learn anything this way.

J: Well, if you are going to have an attitude I think I am going to stop this interview RIGHT NOW!!
M: So perhaps Tanner will interview me on Tuesday?
J: Good lord woman if you are brave enough for that, go for it. I will be hanging out with my cuz in front of the air conditioner.

Joey got a great new sweater
I even got dressed up for the interview!

Anyway, Mom was interviewed for real on Blog Interviewer Go check it out and give ME five stars!!!!

Hi, Joey.
This was the shortest inverview I've read!
You did not give us the chance to know your mom and dad better!
Maybe with Tanner we'll have luck!
Have a nice day

Hi Joey: You look great in your vest, and the other guy who interviewed your mom did a good job! Is Tanner really interviewing tomorrow? I may leave town

Joe--Good job! When will these apes learn--we're the center of the universe, not THEM! And I LOVE your sweater vest. You look intelligent AND handsome.

And thanks for pointing out my DOOFUS mistake calling Ike a boxer! Yeesh! I hope he forgives me. I must have sat out in the heat and let my brain shrink like a Doofus's.

Joe - I'm YOUR FRIEND only! The Doofus said something mean about me yesterday, so I'm sticking with YOU ONLY.

Where did your mom get your sweater? My brother might need one to cover up his skinny naked little body....

Blogger Ruby Bleu said...

Hey Joey...
Now would you consider that inteview a success??? I'm thinking you should leave the interviewing to Larry skills are best used elsewhere. But you do look mighty handsome in that sweater vest!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

PS - Very cool blog interview with your Mom tho!

Blogger Tadpole said...

Joe - I gave you 5 stars! But I think your interview was MUCH better than theirs... even if we didn't really learn anything about your mom.

1:57 PM  
Blogger Maggie said...

I totally agree with Tadpole! Your interview was far better! BTW, I gave you 5 stars too!

Love ya lots,

Hi Joey:

You look very handsome for the interview.....

We have a small suggustion - you might not want to start with the "HARD HITTING - MUST KNOW" questions first - you might should ease her into a secure dialogue and then when she's not thnking about it BAM BAM BAM - get to the Tanner looks like he needs a long rest questions. Show concern for his health and well being..Vaction to Lillie's might be just the perfect get for him to get away and relax.

We also rated you 5 stars but reschedule your interview with Mom FAST.......

Blogger Ferndoggle said...

At least you asked the most important question...When is Tanner leaving? That's what I want to ask my Mom...when are the Girls leaving? I hope tomorrow.

Joey: YOu look really cute in that vest. I wish you would have been able to finish the interview though. I'd like to know more about your mom.....a.k.a. my mother-in-law to be!

Blogger Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Hmmm not you fault. You did an excellent job but your mom was impatient. Hopefully Tanner has better luck.

Btw, we left a comment on your mo's real interview.

Looking forward to hearing more

Blogger Holly said...

Ok Joey, you might want to work on your patience. Not that I have a lot either, but at least I took some time to find out about my humans (but only because I HAD to!!)

I did like the interview your human gave to the blogger people. She sounds like a very nice person, and she really loves you two!

Great interview! I can't wait to hear the Tanner version...

joe you turned that interview into an interview with you. but that's just as well because moms are boring. i only made HM do a meme about herself because she was bugging me with all that free time she had on her hands, she was beginning to chase her tail and stuff out of boredom.

Brilliant interview. It's vital for the interviewer to steer the discussion towards vital topics of the day.

It's Tuesday! Perhaps I'll get to know your Mom better today. Good luck Tanner!

I see that lots of dogs are blogging about their humans. Do you think our blog readers really want to know about our humans? I don't think they do- they come to our blogs to read about us!

Joe, next time get into the really personal stuff so you can embarrass her like our mom's embarrass us on our blogs. Hooo boy! I would love to interview my human! I asked her and she said, Tosca Bug Off!

Congrats to your momma for hte interview on bloginterviewer! kudos!
Oh, and Joey..he's not going away...really, he's not. Believe me, I've been trying to get rid of Ollie for years now and mom's are pretty serious about this stuff...

Your buddy, Mackie

I think if I were you Joey, I would just give up and go and live with Grandpa Gary.....he sounds like a reasonable sort of guy.

Too bad about the questions tho...

That was a nice try, but I think you may have to get used to Tanner living with you.

Joey - That was a nice try at an interview. Maybe you need to focus a bit more next time, then it will be super great. Your outfit looked awful good though.

You did an outSTANDing job, Joe! Better than at that other site where your mom was interviewed ... but we gave it a 5-star rating anyway!j
Play bows,

Blogger Stanley said...


You really know how to take charge in an interview. No skirting the issue, no changing the subject. And, might I add, you were looking mighty dapper for the occassion. Makes me wonder if any of the girlpups even understood anything they read. They probably had to clean their keyboards from all that drooling (*major eyeroll*).

Stay cool in the Arizona heat.

Your goober bud,
