I envy the wind

What is your favorite color?

If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Caring, funny, dedicated

If you describe your priorities in three words, what are they?
Laughter, Family, career

What matters most to you: happiness, success or love?
Audrey Hepburn once said, "The most important thing is to enjoy your life -to be happy- That's all that matters."I totally agree with her. So much so in fact that I joined this academic group of geeky philosophers and we sit around asking ourselves big questions to which there is no answer. Still we must ask, though.

Do you have pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
Yes. Pets are the new children. Dexter T. Cat & Mugsley 'The killer' Malone, Esquire (dog)

Have you ever been in love? Yes. I am fortunate to have been well-wooed and well-loved by someone I loved. I miss him but I am glad he's gone.

Describe your best kiss ever. Warm, soft and uncertain... Terribly sweet and loads of butterflies. I adore the butterflies.

What did you eat for breakfast? Fruit and a power bar.
Do you like dancing? Passionately. In the morning in my knickers to modestly loud music. And in my mum's living room with my sisters... we like to make each other laugh by seeing who can be the worst dancer.
Have you ever acted on stage? I was Lucy in 'A Charlie Brown Christmas Pageant.'
My fifth grade teacher told me I was magnificent. Wait. No she didn't. I just totally made that up.

How old are you?Twenty-eleven.

Favorite movie? Freeway.
Three favorite luxury items? 600+ thread count sheets, extravagant pillows and illume jar candles (pineapple cilantro is my fav).
Guilty pleasures? Chocolate. Last week when the hurricane was 'coming' I spent an entire day watching movies and eating pie. Pie is really good for days like that.
What is your favorite quote? "I'll get you my pretty and your little dog too."
Ahem. Not really the above... See below:

To be happy you must be wise -George Santayana (He is the man)

Are you close to your family? Yes. Although not geographically. We speak often. I'm a family girl and I miss them, so I had to get a makeshift family. See the 'pet' question above.

What are your vices? Chocolate and dark brooding men with passion.

What album are you listening to right now? Kings of Convenience, Riot on an Empty Street.

Do you have an all-time favorite album? What? I refuse to answer such an horrible question. So there.

Who is your favorite artist, musical or visual? I really like Jean-loup Sieff's photography. And Truffaut. I must protest that this is another horrible question.
Where do you see yourself in five years? Owning some real estate, travelling, doing a bit of writing. Maybe doing some impossible yoga postures. Tooling around town on a bus or, if I must drive, a hybrid vehicle that gets like 97mpg. Depending on the school situation maybe working on a PhD. One thing at a time though.

Oh yes, and learning to cook cordon bleu... On a unicycle, with a kazoo.

Do you like to read? Delicious.
What are you reading now? I just finished Harry Potter's sixth one. I cried and cried. So sad, but it is the best one yet. This one was super-suspenseful. Fucking brilliant, that Rowling person. She might just have a career in writing. What is the last show you watched?The Office. I kept hearing about it, and my friends were right. It's funny. Misogyny at its most absurd.
What are your time-wasters? Dishing on the phone to my sisters and Angela. The internet. Searching for the right song. Or cardigan. Or black skirt.
What are your goals this year? Finish first degree, graduate summa cum laude (fingers crossed)... then find a program where they pay for my second and third ones (degrees I mean). I'd like to go on a nice long trip abroad after graduation. Maybe I can use up some of those miles I've been hording. Methinks my diabolical scheme is working.

The latest Harry Potter book made me cry and it also made me very, very angry. I was pissed that Mrs. Rowling could betray me like that. I have not spoken to her since I shut that book. She keeps emailing me, telling me she'll make it up to me in the next one. We'll see.
