Eleven Things



When you can't think of something to blog about, let someone else decide. 
Here are my answers to Laura's post.


1. If you could recommend one great book you read in the last year what would it be?
Hmmm... tricky. Either Love in the Time of Cholera or You're An Animal, Viskovitz! They couldn't be more different from each other but I enjoyed both of them immensely.

2. What job did you aspire to as a child?
For a long long time I wanted to become a cetologist. I was fascinated by whales even though I had never been on a boat... *face palm*

3. Who was your first crush (famous or not)?
Tom Cruise in Cocktail.

4. What song makes you super happy when it comes on the radio?
I don't listen to the radio but "Hooked on a feeling" makes me very happy.

5. What really gets your goat?
Impoliteness.

6. What is your favourite dish to cook?
I recently purchased a slow cooker. Meat has never been tastier.

7. Do you have a skill no one else can do?
I doubt any of my skills is exclusively mine.

8. Who's your current favourite comedian?
Bill Murray. Always.

9. Do you collect anything?
Snow globes.

10. What is your favourite way to spend a Sunday?
It requires good people and the right amount of laziness and coffee.

11. What one thing do you love most about your home town?
The way it smells in the summertime. 


Gratuitous list of things I'm looking forward to, now that autumn is around the corner:
• Pumpkin soup, pumpkin pies, pumpkin love everywhere.
• Stuffing my face with Jerusalem artichokes. 
• Finally wearing my polka-dotted socks. 
• Movie nights.
• Dates with books and hot chocolate. 
• Layering.
• Using outrageous amounts of blush.
