Today's post is brought to you courtesy of Wake Up and Smell the Coffee, who was kind enough to tag me and give me an easy post. I remain somewhat incommunicative lately, even falling off the edge of Facebook, although that's mostly because all the changes they've made have made it ridiculously difficult to keep track of my friends.
1. What are your current obsessions?
I remain firmly obsessed with Friday Night Lights. I've also been spending a lot of time doing writing exercises. In fact, in the last three weeks, I've written 80,000 words, which is pretty much a short novel. Something about the lack of pressure just makes the words fly out of me.
2. Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
A lime green t-shirt that says "I'll Mess with Texas." I got it years ago from a thrift store for $3.
3. Last dream you had?
When my alarm went off this morning, it was in the middle of a dream in which I was an FBI agent, investigating an IRA splinter group in Chicago. I was standing in our old apartment, interviewing a witness and cutting up photographs. Yeah, I have no idea either.
4. Last thing you bought?
5. What are you listening to?
The clock ticking and Callie snoring.
6. If you were a god/goddess who would you be?
On a bad day, Kali. On a good day, Aine.
7. Favourite holiday spots?
I was just bemoaning the other day how we don't reallly go on holiday - I go back to Cleveland to visit my family. Which I enjoy, but I'd really like to have another adventure, like the one Youngest Brother and I had in Venice and Slovenia.
8. Reading right now?
Re-reading The Great Gatsbyy, still my favorite book ever although One Hundred Years of Solitude is a close second.
9. Four words to describe yourself.
Stubborn, loyal, practical, introverted
10. Guilty pleasure?
Pick Me Up magazine
11. Who or what makes you laugh until you’re weak?
My brothers - put the two of them together and anything could happen.
12. Favourite spring thing to do?
Walk in the rain when it's warm.
13. Planning to travel to next?
See item 7. (At Christmas, probably)
14. Best thing you ate or drank lately?
Oatmeal butterscotch bars that I made last weekend.
15. When did you last get tipsy?
Cannot even remember. Probably the wedding I went to last July.
16. Favourite ever film?
17. Care to share some wisdom?
Go have an adventure. That's always the answer.
18. Song you can't get out of your head?
Lately, it's been Amy MacDonald. Mostly "This is the Life" and "Poison Prince".
19. Thing you are looking forward to?
Have some friends visiting at the end of the month.
20 If money were no object, where would you choose to live?
I don't know. Probably somewhere on the coast of West Cork, with an apartment in Berlin and a cabin in the northern woods of Finland.
