Five-minute interview: Alexia Mizzi, Integra4Notes

MicroScope puts its questions to Alexia Mizzi, sales and partner manager at Integra4Notes

What have you got in your pockets?
Nothing at the moment - no pockets.

Who would you most like to have a date with?
If I could, I would have a date with Prison Break star Wentworth Miller.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
From the first time I saw a swimming race on TV, I thought I would be a swimming coach. I still think it would be great to have such a job - although one would need to invest in loads of sunblock.

How did you get into the IT industry?
I decided I needed a change as I had been doing the same thing for a number of years. I guess I was lucky because the IT industry can be great fun and is very interesting. I am surrounded by humble people and clients, which is rare in some industries.

What is your favorite chat-up line?
It's a cheesy one - You remind me of a parking ticket, because you have fine written all over you.

What do you do to relax?
I find that going to the gym is a good relaxing therapy. Ironically, so is cooking.

What is your favorite song and why?
Wish you were here by Pink Floyd - I just cannot get enough of it. When David Gilmour released his version of the song I had just started junior college, and those were great times to remember.

What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
I went to a Christmas panto and was asked to go on stage and dance to a ridiculous song. My work mates were also present.

Where is your favorite place?
On a beach soaking up the sun.

What is your favorite joke?
I cannot think of any clean jokes.

If you had a dinner party and could invite anyone, dead or alive, who would you invite and why?
I would invite my (late) dad so that all my friends and my boyfriend could finally meet a great guy. I wouldn't mind having Freddy Mercury join us either.

If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
I would give some to charity, pay off my house loan and organize one hell of a party for all the people I know it would be nice to have it in Hawaii.

If you could make a voodoo doll of someone, who would it be?
I have never thought about this. I used to dislike one of my bosses when I worked in Belgium - I'm not sure I would go to such an extreme, but if I had to, there is no one better/worse I can think of.

Is there life after death?
Yes, I would like to believe that there is.

What is the most daring thing you have ever done?
I once shaved all my hair - never again.

What is your best quality?
I can take criticism and very often follow suggestions others give me.

What is your most annoying habit?
I am a bit of a perfectionist. I like things to be straight - papers, utensils in their own drawer, etc.

What most annoys you?
Being woken up early at the weekend by workmen up the street. I also get annoyed by people driving at 40km/hour in the fast lane.

Who is your biggest hero/heroine?
My parents, who had to keep up with me and my brother and sister, and all the mischief we brought along the way. I'm not sure how they did that. I can't picture myself bringing my children up the same way they did.

How would you like to die and what would you choose as your epitaph?
I would like to be very old and go in my sleep. My epitaph would be: Hope to see you again one day.
