I'm going to answer the rest of the questions today! I'm saving anything romance-related for tomorrow, which happens to be my 1 year wedding anniversary! We can wait one day to get sappy, right?
Ana B. had a good question: "You and Me. Karaoke. What song would you choose for us to duet?"
This is a tough one! I've never really done karaoke-- unless singing in Rock Band counts, but I think it's different. Sometimes Robert and I sing duets around the house (hilarious, I know). We like singing "Been All Around the World" as performed by the Pixies here. I get all the Kim Deal parts! But if you and I were singing together, I would want to pick something more exciting and ridiculous! Help me out! I'm drawing a blank.
Diana asked about my diet/exercise regimen, and if I'm vegetarian.
Nope, not a vegetarian. But I do love vegetables-- that's a new addition to my life. When I was a kid I refused to eat any vegetables. Actually, I refused to eat any vegetables until Robert started cooking for me [and I became much healthier]! I must confess that I don't really exercise. Although I'm small, I'm also very squishy. I do try to walk to as many places as I can instead of driving, but the rest is just genes and diet, I suppose. When I'm being good, my basic rules consist of these things: drink water instead of anything else - definitely no soda [think of it as a treat, not an every day thing]; no dessert unless you spend a long time making something fancy [I break this one a lot but I try not to]; 3 real meals a day - no snacks - and eat as little processed food as possible. I think cooking at home is very important! It's the most healthy way to eat, and cheaper too.
a little project with a toy robot and our adventures to the farmer's market, but I think we got bored with that.
Liz had the following questions:
What was the last thing that made you cry?
I haven't had a big cry in a while, but I think I did cry a little [yesterday] when watching the episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer where her mom dies. Hey, you asked!! Thinking about funerals at all makes me feel very sad-- I've been to too many.
If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?"
If I were going to choose an animal to be, I think it would be a baby sloth or koala. Slow and cute, please. Possibly a lemur. I can't explain why - but probably it's because those are the animals I would like to hug most.
Anna at muchlove wanted to know:
What was your best vintage find/purchase?
There's another tough question! It's very hard to say, since each vintage find can be so exciting in its own way. There's a certain thrill to going in a shop and looking through things, or the pure joy of discovering something old that belonged to a family member. Here are two examples: shoes from a vintage shop, and a box full of jewelry that my mom had.
Do you tell people (friends/family) about your blog?
Not everyone. It's general knowledge with my sister and my online friends, but I don't talk about it with many other people. It's not really a secret-- I make sure that I wouldn't mind anyone finding it... I just know that certain people wouldn't quite get it.
When is your birthday?
August 24th! A little over 3 months away, and I'll be turning 23 next.
Well, that was fun [at least for me]! Thanks to everyone who gave me a question to think about! I hope it was a nice experience for you as well.
