This weeks quick fire questions are kindly being answered by Consetta Parker.
Following my passion: When I was a little
girl I discovered Star Wars. It sparked my imagination and brought me an
immense amount of happiness. For years I wished I’d someday meet Han Solo and
find a boy that loved Star Wars as much as me. Over the years many people have
tried to convince me that I needed to “grow up” and let go of my childhood
fascinations. I have done my best to never let any one person or situation
steal the joy away from me that I found when I was a child. I followed my passion and because of that my
life has been a galactic adventure and I’m thankful for that every day. *and my wishes came true. I’ve met Harrison
Ford twice and I married a boy that I met at Skywalker Ranch…he was dressed as
Thanks to Consetta for taking the time to answer our questions. I would love to hear more about that Jerry Bruckheimer incident. Next week we have Ed Dolista from IndyCast, be sure to check it out and also check out our previous quick fire posts with Jimmy Mac, Chris Macht and Jim Beller.
Consetta appears on the excellent Full Of Sith podcast along with Tha Mike Pilot and Bryan Young. As if that wasn't enough, she is also a media consultant for none other than Rancho Obi-Wan. Talk about keeping busy!
With all that going on it was nice of Consetta to spare a few minutes to answer our questions. So lets fire away.
1 You're stuck in a swamp on Dagobah. What one movie, TV show, album and book would you take?
My initial thought is I’d take The Empire Strikes Back (for landscape references and it’s my favorite Star Wars film), my Buffy DVD’s, The Monkees “listen to the Band” CD boxed set and my Jedi Journal I’ve been keeping since the fourth grade.
2 If you could invite any three people (alive or not, fictitious or not) to a dinner party, who would they be?
Han Solo, Tony Stark and Chief Brody. (if it could be non-human and were more of a picnic in the park: Pegasus, Shadowfax and a TaunTaun)
It’s a tie between The Empire Strikes Back and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
4 If you were invisible for a day what would be the first thing you would do?
There’s a good chance I’d immediately go outside in our backyard, sit down in the middle of our “Squirrel Village” we set up, surround myself with 10 lbs. of shelled peanuts, and patiently wait.
5 When was the last time you cried?
Last night when my husband and I were reminiscing about the day we met at Skywalker Ranch. (happy tears!)
I’m very fortunate that I have an extremely good memory. I can recall things from when I was a toddler. The thought of losing my memory and not knowing my loved ones and all we’ve shared is quite disturbing to me. (as far as phobias go I’m terrified of spiders and clowns. So a spider dressed as a clown would push me over the edge)
7 What was the most embarrassing moment of your life?
I was working an event for Disney and had no chance to eat or rest the entire day. After 10 hours of going non-stop I ended up fainting right in front of Jerry Bruckheimer. (an assistant from Disney caught me before my head hit the floor. I was carried off to the side and propped up against the wall where they force fed me chocolate and Diet Coke till my blood sugar came back up. I’m still proud though that the event was a huge success and Jerry was very happy!)
8 Excluding search engines, what three website would you choose if no other websites were available?
9 Do you have any guilty pleasures?
The only one I’m willing to share is the fact that if I could only eat out at one place the rest of my life it would be McDonald’s ;)
10 What are you looking forward to the most in the next six months?
11 What is your most treasured possession?
He’s not a possession but I treasure my dearest Garet more than anything. (he’s the stormtrooper I married )
12 What is your biggest regret?
Life is too short to have regrets. I prefer to look up and forward rather that down and back.
13 what are you most proud of?
|I got a bad feeling about this.|
14 What is your favourite Spielberg movie?
Depending on the day it’s either Jaws (Because I had a massive crush on Roy Scheider), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (since I grew up in Indiana and saw when I was little. I was convinced the Indiana scenes were filmed in the field behind our house), E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (because I still keep Reeses Pieces on hand just in case) or Raiders of the Lost Ark (because Harrison Ford has always been my hero). (today it’s Raiders)
15 Where can people keep in touch or follow you?
