MEET THE VOICE OF MARIE...DIANNE GOMEZ!
Tell me about yourself, outside of your passion for animals, such as your family, hobbies and interests.
I love to go shopping, & just being with my family. My favorite stores are 1) Target to look at everything & that's where I buy Marie's & the other cats their food. 2) PetsMart--To look at all the new toys for the cats. I also love looking at the animals, even though I wouldn't get any. 3) Lane Bryant. This is a clothing store for me. I just love looking at all the new clothes & now they have shoes. CA-CHING!! My poor husband!! 4) Kohls: I hardly buy anything in there, but I like going there just to look. My husband sometimes buy things from there!
Are you a bargain shopper or an impulsive shopper?
I was a bargin shopper, because my husband didn't have a job for nearly 2 1/2 years, but thankfully he got a job in early February of this year. I still am a bargin shopper, but sometimes I go overboard & SPEND,SPEND, SPEND (with my husband's knowledge) LOL!
Are you a shoe person, a purse person or a jewelry person? Or is there something else you are totally drawn to when you shop?
I used to be a shoe person when I was younger, now I really don't care about shoes. I still love clothes, if I had the money, I would buy CLOTHES & PURSES!! I hardly buy jewlery at all. Jewlery doesn't fascinate me.
Are you an outdoor person, or an indoor person?
I'm more an indoor person than outside. I just love taking care of all my cats. My husband & I hardly have any parties, but when we do it's usually family functions or family reunions. My husband & I are HUGE BASEBALL fans of the LOS ANGELES ANGELS. We are just waiting for the baseball season to start, so we can see the games!!
What is your favorite book, favorite author?
My favorite book is anything about cats or crossword puzzles. I love crossword puzzles.
What TV shows do you enjoy?
My favorite TV shows are Dancing with the Stars & American Idol. It's a little hard to predict, who is going to win on Dancing with the Stars. They are ALL good. I like William Levy. He dances very well & he's cute. LOL! I think on American Idol the winner will be Shayna, but you never can tell! They all are great.
What type of music do you enjoy?
I really like the 80's & 90's music. My favorite groups are the EAGLES & AEROSMITH. Any song from each group is fine. All their songs are good!!
Do you travel? What is the most memorable vacation you’ve ever taken?
We (my husband & I) only have been to Las Vegas, NV. We've stayed at the TI (Treasure Island), Sahara (when it was there) & the Golden Nugget. My husband has comps from all the casinos, so we stay for free.
Tell me about your town and what makes it special to you.
I was born in California and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
Tell me about your first pet, and how many have you had in your lifetime?
|Marie at six months|
Marie was my very first official pet. So, I only had her, but altogether there is 11 cats now.
What is a typical day for you, starting when your pets want breakfast?
My day starts everyday at 5:30am that Marie comes to me & purrs or licks my nose & that's saying she's hungry. I feed the inside cats & my husband feeds the outside cats.
Thank you Marie and Dianne for agreeing to these interviews!
