do we know each other?

A dear friend sent this over e-mail, and I'm posting it here because, well, I'm lazy and I want a two-fer out of it. So, welcome to anyone I sent the e-mail notification to; I hope you enjoy the blog. And here are the answers to the circulating questions (hmm, is this a meme?).

1. What time did you get up this morning? 7:00, after Mark and Mariah left the house.

2. Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds AND pearls. (Stole this response--but really, why choose?)

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Umm, "Sideways." Twice. How did that happen?

4. What is your favorite TV show? The West Wing, or NBA basketball.

5. What did you have for breakfast? Oatmeal with raisins and soymilk, coffee, also with soymilk.

6. What is your middle name? Rose.

7. What is your favorite food? Just one? really? Depends on the day. So, hmm, maybe homemade pizza with caramelized onions and smoked mozarella? Chocolate guinness cake? Lemon linguine? The last couple of days I've been making these really tasty spinach salads, with bacon and hard-boiled egg…mmm, I'm getting hungry!

8. What foods do you dislike? Melon and liver (Stole that answer, too!)

9. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? mocha almond fudge

10. What is your favorite CD at the moment? I think it's a mix CD that I burned out of iTunes. Some of Mariah's stuff, some stuff I like. Laura Nyro, Bonnie Raitt, Maroon Five…

11. What kind of car do you drive? 2002 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon, a diesel. Unless I get to drive the beetle convertible, which is much more fun!

12. Favorite sandwich? the cheese columbo at Coppola's.

13. What characteristics do you despise? Whining (except when it's me). Narcissism. (OK, yes, I suppose blogging is narcissistic, or could be…)

14. Favorite item of clothing? Black cashmere v-neck. New lavender sweater.

15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation where would go? the beach

16. What color is your bathroom? Green. It was supposed to be blue-green, but that whole color thing is hard!

17. Favorite brand of clothing? Every single item of clothing I'm wearing today is from Target: Mossimo, Merona, Mizrahi (all those Ms!). Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren make pants that fit me. And I do like Eileen Fisher and J Jill on sale…

18. Where would you retire? California. The Bay Area or SoCal beach.

19. Favorite time of day? early morning when no one else is up, early evening in the spring/summer when it's warm but no too hot and we can eat dinner on the porch.

30. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share with us: I already blogged about finishing the clapotis--what could be more exciting? Oh, yeah, we're spending the summer in Oxford. That's exciting, no?
