I was tagged by Becky to answer these eleven questions.
1. The one book you read over and over again. My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell.
2. Meal planner or just open the fridge and see what you have and throw it together kind of cook? Totally a meal planner.
3. Favorite curse word. I like the Father Ted (i.e. Irish) versions of the traditional curse words: shite, arse, feck.
4. Which is the better album – Dark Side of the Moon or The Wall? The Wall.
5. In the movie of your life, who would play you? How about the actress who played Bailey Quarters in WKRP in Cincinnati? Jan Smithers? Shy, mousy, nerdy, bookish.
6. Best decision you ever made? To take a scary plunge and leave my nursing career.
7. What’s your guilty pleasure? A giant espresso and a book on weekend afternoons.
8. How did you meet your significant other? We rode the same school bus from kindergarten until fifth grade. Technically, we went to kindergarten together, only my family moved into the district from Boston at the end of the school year, and I was in the morning kindergarten and he was in the afternoon one. After that, he went to a different school, but we shared a bus.
9. Coffee, tea or soda in the morning? Coffee on weekdays, tea on the weekend.
10. Favorite noodle type. Egg noodles.
11. Why did you start blogging to begin with? I wanted a place where I could discuss the books I was reading.
In other news, we waited three whole days and then popped open a jar of the pickled peaches. Delicious, although the flavor improved after a few more days in the fridge. I love the combination of sweet and vinegar with the distinctive peach flavor.
Here are a few blogs that I recently added to my reader that you might enjoy:
Demode. A fun, yet scholarly, blog about sewing historic costumes.
Thug Kitchen. Hugely popular, I know, but if you haven't yet discovered this vegan food blog, drop everything and visit now. Not a vegan? Neither am I. (Thug Kitchen gets caught by UVA's profanity filter, so friends reading along from there will have to wait until they get home to look at this one.)
