Ten on Tuesday! Volume 16

Link up here!
1. If you could trade lives with another blogger for a day, who would it be and why?
One of my British bloggy friends, so that I can be in the UK for a day.

2. Do you prefer receiving handmade or store bought gifts? Be honest!
Honestly, as long as it's a sincere gift, I'll like it.  Regardless if it's a gift card, some store bought dress or a hand-painted picture of my beloved house in Belgium--if you mean it, I will enjoy it.

3. Would you rather camp or stay in a hotel?
Hotel. I am not made for camping, as I've been known to leave the room when a simple ant crawls across a countertop.  I can't help it.

4. What’s your favorite comfort food?
I feel as though I've answered this before, and I said siopoa.  I don't really have that regularly available since my grandma rarely makes it, so I'll just go with bread. Mainly a french baguette.

5. You’re having a really bad day at work. How do you unwind when you come home?
I used to get home, immediately change into my swimsuit, and go to my apartment complex pool.  Swim a few laps, then roast on a chair with my iPod in.  If that's not available to me, I tend to lay on my back on my bed and listen to my iPod.

6. What’s your favorite chore? (Or, the chore you hate the least)
Anything organizing.  I'm a freak for ABC, height, colour order.

7. What got you interested in blogging?
I've been writing since I was 7, and this was a way for me to do it all the time.

8. Are you currently reading a book? What is it?
I have Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees, Libba Bray's Rebel Angels, Jonathon Tropper's Everything Changes, Curtis Sittenfeld's American Wife, and Sulaiman Addonia's The Consequence of Love.

9. Do you have a favorite artist?
My favourite art period is Renaissance, but I love a good Degas and Monet and am utterly obsessed with MC Escher. I used to have Escher pictures lining my room, and in my Advanced Ceramics class I modeled my relief carving after one of his paintings.

10. Have you ever met someone famous?
[Ready for some name dropping?] I met Maroon 5 once and had a nice chat with them for awhile, hanging out at Barnes & Noble.  My mom dragged me to a signing to meet Donny Osmond.  Thanks to theatre friends and whatnot I've met a few minor theatre-folk, including (if you so count them) the touring cast of Spring Awakening; plus a friend of mine was in the Broadway cast as a Swing and, primarily, the role of Hanschen.  I could have met Joey Fatone from *NSYNC, but he was with his family at BN and I didn't want to interrupt their adorable story time.  A very long time ago before they got all big and stuff I met Brand New.  There was a very ironic day of meeting Chace Crawford from Gossip Girl.  Lou Ferigno and Leonard Nemoy at Comic-con last year.  When I was 7 I met Al Gore and Bill Clinton, but at the time had absolutely zero interest in them or what they would eventually come (hmm...apparently not much has changed).  Without explanation (though trust me when I say this is not in a paparazzi-style), I've chased and semi-met Seth Green.  There's a whole other section of famous people I've been in the same room with but didn't actually meet, so I won't add them to this big pile of name-droppings.  If you wish to see who, you can do so here.

That's a lot of famous people!

Fresh warm bread is the ultimate comfort food! Especially when smothered in butter.

About Me

My photo
I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
