Re: [KNOW THE YO] This Week: Leeum! (October 16th, 2020)

Postby Viking Andrew » Wed Oct 14, 2020 10:06 am

Hey YoFans!

We're back again. We have a special treat for you this week. Not one...but TWO people are being featured. First up, we have Leeum!

Image

If You Could Time Travel, when Would You Go?
I would love to see what life was like in the 60s/70s - but I think right now I'd time travel to about 2022 in hope that the C word had finally gone away.

If you were the CEO of a company name one thing you would make compulsory in the office and one thing you would ban in the office.
Must be at least one dog present at all times for therapy purposes. I'd ban smelly foods - please stop heating them up in office microwaves.

What Is The Funniest Thing You Have Ever Seen A Stranger Do?
I mean I laugh anytime a stranger falls over in front of me, but probably once when someone flew down a train carriage because it moved unexpectedly -- you shouldn't laugh, but it was hilarious.

If You Could Ask Your Pet 3 Questions, What Would They Be?
He's a dog so...
  • Is anyone actually going to believe your answers?
  • Why do you despise cats?
  • Can you please learn how to talk permanently? You'd make a good therapist

What Accomplishment Are You Most Proud Of?
Getting my place at University! I really did not think I was going to make the grades.

If You Could Learn Any One Skill In The World Without Trying (Like Matrix Learning Style), Which Would You Pick?
If we're talking ridiculous super-power skills, then maybe mind-reading -- for realistic skills, I'd love to be able to master another language, such as Japanese.

Which animal would make the best type of president if the animal kingdom ever rises up and takes over?
I have no idea who'd be best, but based on the movies it's most likely going to be apes who rise up and take over. Maybe a dog would make a good president? As long as there were no squirrels nearby.

Describe your life using film titles.
Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.

As A Child, What Did You Wish To Become When You Grew Up?
An astronaut! But now I study marketing...so maybe not, eh?

What is your favourite Yo memory?
Winning the HW2019 design contest or the AV2019 theme contest!

Re: [KNOW THE YO] This Week:DonnaSue Latorio!(October 16th 2

Postby Viking Andrew » Wed Oct 14, 2020 10:06 am

Next up, we have DonnaSue Latorio!

Image

If You Could Time Travel, when Would You Go?

1750ish - This is the time frame where my First Nations ancestors were brought to Quebec and I would love to hear the real story of their migration. Bringing some of our traditions back to the present would be a bonus as so much has been lost through European contact. I would love to be able to revitalize some of it, but I think hearing the stories from their own perspective would be amazing.


If you were the CEO of a company name one thing you would make compulsory in the office and one thing you would ban in the office.

I would definitely make it mandatory that everyone take a "lunch" break. I work through lunch most days and have most of my career and find that there are days I am so burnt out by the time I leave. If people (me included) took that 1/2 hour - 1 hour everyday to just walk away from their desk or work station, it really does help refresh you. As for banning something - it would be coming in sick. But I would PAY them to stay home and get better. I'd rather have someone miss a day or two than come in and have everyone sick within a week. It's much more cost productive.

What Is The Funniest Thing You Have Ever Seen A Stranger Do?
I actually have a fair number of "I can't believe I saw that" stories. One of my favorites was on a flight home from Florida. We were boarding and there was a back up as we were trying to get to our seats. Once I got midplane, I saw an elderly woman with a life size stuffed Mickey seat belted into a seat next to her and a very amused flight attendant trying to explain that Mickey didn't have a ticket and the seat belonged to the equally amused young man with her. They eventually got it sorted out and Mickey rode with the flight attendants up front.

If You Could Ask Your Pet 3 Questions, What Would They Be?
I don't have pets right now but my daughter used to smuggle all sorts of little critters home when she was in High School (she went to an Agricultural school). I would have asked them:

1. Are you thankful to A for having brought you home?

2. Do you like the "palace" you live in now compared to the shoebox that you were in before?

3. Does it bother you that I sneeze everytime I look at you?


What Accomplishment Are You Most Proud Of?
Outside of Yo - it's a tie between my years in the Air Force and the young lady my daughter has become. OK, maybe not exactly a tie but I"m proud of both.
In Yo - Another tie - the success of my group, YoJournal News, I never dreamed how successful it would be when I started it. Of course, having Akira the Husky in game is another amazing thing to me. I dealt with a LOT of negativity when she won and than again when she was released, but I've learned to ignore that and just be proud of the fact that others like what I designed. And I'm SUPER happy that my little Joy the Hedgehog will be joining Akira next month.



If You Could Learn Any One Skill In The World Without Trying (Like Matrix Learning Style), Which Would You Pick?
This is a hard question because to me watching your progress while you learn is part of the feeling of accomplishment at the end. But, if I had to pick something, I would say my Nation's language! I would LOVE to be fluent in Michif.

Which animal would make the best type of president if the animal kingdom ever rises up and takes over?
The Owl!!! I'm obsessed with them lol but seriously, the characteristics applied here would make a great leader -- wisdom, family oriented and fierce when needed.

Describe your life using film titles.
The Unbelievable Truth, Miracle and GI Jane

As A Child, What Did You Wish To Become When You Grew Up?
I wanted to be a teacher which never happened. I was a Girl Scout Leader for 13 years though and my daughter is now looking into becoming a teacher when she graduates college. I guess the apple doesn't fall far after all.

What is your favourite Yo memory?
My first birthday in Yo after I came back in 2017. I had just joined the Latorio family and didn't know anyone so I hosted my own birthday party. Most of the family at that time surprised me by showing up and showering me with love and gifts (lots of animals for my zoo obsession). There were others who came too but it was the family letting me know I was part of something that really made the day memorable.


I'm always talking about my zoo obsession so obviously, I had to pick an exhibit to share - my owls

I'm super proud of my Native look - I spent months on this

Oh wow. I posted something and had no idea Donna Sue was there already. I am so sorry.

Donna Sue, you have had an interesting life! I support your views about lunch hours and sick leave and salute your service in the military. I am pleased your daughter is planning on becoming a teacher. We do not have enough of them. I have never met you in game and have actually only seen you a few times here on the forum so it is great to learn something about you. I hope we meet up sometime.

Hi DonnaSue Latorio!

I love your outfit and my mom's favorite creature was the owl too. She had hundreds of them friends had given her over the years. And I may be crazy, but I've seen GI Jane like 8 times which for me is a lot lol.

Good to meet you!
