Quiz Me

I got tagged by Heather at Implausible Yarn last week with this quiz (thanks Heather!).  I was away on vacation and it took me a bit to get around to it, but here are my answers.

What's your staple meal (i.e., what meal do you cook most often when you can't be bothered to be adventurous) ?

We cook a lot in my home.  Between me and the Hub, one of us is usually up for it.  If I am home alone for dinner and I really don't feel like cooking, I will still whip a simple pasta with a veggie from the freezer.  On those nights when we really don't want to cook--hey, it's new york, so we order out for delivery.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

A dog whisperer.  That would be cool.

What book are you reading at the moment (if any)?

Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris.  I love his books because they are easy reads, and so funny.  If you've never read him, he is a comedian and author who is often heard on NPR and has several books which are a collection of essays and short stories about his life and dysfunctional family.  I highly recommend.

How do you relax?

Reading, knitting, snuggling with Willow...and running sometimes does it too.

What color are the interior walls of your home?

Boring, and I can't even use the excuse that I am a renter.  We bought our place in 2008 and waited and waited until we got a closing date.  Then, all of a sudden it was like, OK, we're closing tomorrow and moving two days later.  Although we did manage to paint the whole place before we moved in, it is mostly very neutral--off white and beige.  We did manage a deep red accent wall in the entry foyer though.  I love it.

What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Oh boy. So many really.  I used to make fun of reality TV and I don't really know what happened over the years but let's just say I came around to the idea.  I'll give you "So You Think You Can Dance", and leave the rest to your imagination.

What time is bedtime and getting up time?

Up around 7am, bed usually around 11pm.

How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?

It's on and off throughout the day so hard to quantify.  Maybe about an hour a day?

So, now I think I am supposed to tag others to take the quiz.  Most of my readers have probably done it already, but if you are reading this and have not taken the quiz...tag, you're it!

Oh don't feel bad about giving in to the lure of reality television. Think of it as a natural defense mechanism in response to the lessening quality of regular programming. Or as I say, the best way to watch "The biggest loser" is while eating something really bad for you. Like chips. Great answers!

Oooh, I like this. Maybe I'll do one!
