You are a relatively new Volunteer with Store to Door and have Volunteered for 3 different roles, which one is your favorite and why?
I really enjoy the weekly follow up calls, where we check in with the Store to Door clients. I have a set list of people I’ve been calling every Friday. After doing this for about 5-6 weeks, I’ve kind of gotten to know the people we’re doing this for. It’s pretty gratifying.
But I also like the actual shopping. I work both Fred Meyer locations. Each shopping list is kind of like a treasure hunt.
During this time of “Stay Home Stay Safe”, what are you binge watching on TV? Do you have a book recommendation(s)?
I’m not much of a binge watcher. My attention span is too short! We do watch movies on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
A few books I’ve really loved are-
1) “Shantaram” by Gregory David Roberts
2) “The Yiddish Policeman’s Union” by Michael Chabon
3) the “Expanse” series of books by James S. A. Corey.
The Amazon prime adaptation was good, but the books (all 8 of them) were better. Great sci-fi writing.
Name 5 movies can you watch over and over again?
1) Princess Bride
2) Serenity (Joss Whedon)
4) Pulp Fiction
5) The Usual Suspects
When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass the time?
Pull out my iPad and read an ebook.
If you were getting onto a plane right now for a vacation destination, where would you be flying?
Sigh. My wife and I were supposed to be finishing up a two week circuit through the national parks of the Southwest right about now. The Grand Canyon, Zion, Moab, Escalante, Mesa Verde. I’ve never been to those parks. Maybe next year!
I’ve got a two week trip to to France that’s still on the books for late September. That’s really unlikely now.
