Ten on Tuesday (14)

Wow, I haven't done one of these in AGES. Thanks to Lisa for providing the Qs and to Chelsea for hosting! **by the way Lisa, for someone who is studying all the time, oh AND moving, HOW do you find the time to get these Q's in too!???**

1. How do you pronounce the word aunt? Does your pronunciation rhyme with ‘haunt’ or ‘can’t'?
HAUNT. My Mom's family is from Back East and so it was always drilled into me (H)AUNT, (H)AUNT. I like it better anyway, it's not so nasal nor is the name of a bug that makes me swell up when it bites me.

2. Do most of the people in your life know you blog? Or are you partially or totally anonymous?
Oooh good one. Actually I started my blog for my family and friends. Later I ended up going more towards the public. I still have to watch what I say becuase a lot of my coworkers etc DO read this blog. (or maybe I am just kidding myself)

3. When you grocery shop, do you prefer to bag your own groceries or do you like it when the store bags them for you? Paper, plastic, or reusable bags?
I totally like to bag them myself. Also, I arrange the groceries on the conveyor "just so" so they will arrive in the right order to bag them. Okay, so I am a little bit controlling. Whatev. Also, I have the reusable bags but forget them 80 percent of the time. I know, bad Green girl! So paper it is.

4. Do you have a green thumb?
Actually I do, but I have never had a garden. I can't wait until I have my flat in San Francisco WITH a backyard, so I can garden my little heart out.

5. If you watch the Food Network, which chef/show host is your favorite?
Oh gosh. I don't know which show is on which network. Is Top Chef on that one? Or Hells Kitchen? How about Anthony Bordain? Well, whatever, I will watch pretty much any cooking show anyway.

6. Do you like to take baths? Do you take them very often?
Nope! I LOVE to take baths! If I COULD take them more often, I would. But who has a half an hour to fill the tub and a half an hour to soak? Usually...not me. However, a nice bath, a glass of wine and a trashy girly magazine and I am in heaven.

7. What color are the walls in your kitchen?
Hahah. MY kitchen? I am currently homeless and staying with my parents (sigh). THEIR kitchen is..bone or off white or some such.

8. Do you prefer to dine outdoors or indoors?
Depends on the weather. I get cold easily but if the weather is right, outside all the way.

9. Describe your ideal weather.
Oh. See number 8. I would say 73 degrees and sunny. With a cold beer in one hand.

10. If you could learn any foreign language, which would you choose to learn?
Well, let's see...I took French for a year, n'est pas? And then Spanish for about a year and a half, si? Mr Lovely speaks Portuguese, therefore I have picked up all the bad words. Um...I would like to perfect at least one of those. Right now its so so in all, some better than others. However, if I could just "out of the blue" learn ANYTHING, I would say...maybe Chinese...or Swedish...or Gaelic. Obviously, this is a very hard question. for me.  


  1. Ha, I progressively put together these questions over the course of a couple of weeks. I woudl study and then a question woudl occur to me and I'd write it down! :)

    Thanks for playing along! I am the same way with grocery shopping! I too place grocery on the belt strategically!

  2. It was fun learning more about you! I love baths too and really don't take them often enough--candles, a book, wine, ah sounds like heaven :)
