Q&A;: Genevieve Rogers
EVERY Friday, the Western Star asks business owners, public servants and other local identities some very strange questions, all in the name of fun!
This week we interviewed Genevieve Rogers, the owner and operator of local business Roma Expresso.
Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
What do you think the greatest invention has been?
It’s a tie between: Thumb tacks, zip ties and milk crates.
Do you have any lucky items, objects or traditions?
Traditionally my alarm goes off at 4am weekdays! Does that count?
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
Beanies (during long winter mornings).
What three things do you think of most each day?
1. Is hitting snooze three times okay?
2. Why didn’t I make my coffee before I left home?
3. Is daytime napping frowned upon?
What’s been the best decision you’ve made in your life so far?
To leave my transit FIFO lifestyle, and to do what I love and see more of my family.
I’m finally appreciating the value in life as opposed to the value of my pay packet.
If you could replace one body-part with a super bionic replacement, what body-part and what features would the new bionic replacement have?
I would replace my entire left arm with a bionic replica, that (like on one of those pens with the four colours), distributes teaspoons of sugar, chocolate powder, chai powder and syrups.
Imagine the time-saving effectiveness of such a thing.
What was your first car? (or what would you like it to be?)
1988 Toyota Corolla Sedan – the ones that look misshapen with the long bonnet and short boot. To add to the aesthetics, it also had a land Cruiser-size bull bar. Not that I’m complaining. I was very thankful to have wheels!
What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?
Apart from a yellow coffee van in the garage, of equal importance is a dishwasher, air-conditioning and a little black box formally known as Apple TV.
What historical period would you like to live in if you could go back in time?
Definitely any period in a Jane Austin Novel; a time when ladies were Ladies
and gentlemen were Gentlemen.
