In an effort to not post solely about food, I’m mixing it up today with a survey my friend sent me. It’s one of the most random ones I’ve ever seen so I figured why not? Here we go!
1. Do you have a lot of friendships or a very select few?
A very select few, for sure. I take my friendships very seriously and I don’t do superficial. If I invest in a friendship it’s because I really like the person, their energy, and more often than not there’s almost a silent understanding between us before we even become close friends that we somehow already understand each other. It’s quite rare, so when I find those particular people I treat them like family and would do anything for them.
2. What is the most unusual food you’ve ever eaten?
Hmmm…I’d have to say a duck heart. My Papi (french grandfather) loved all the innards, eyes, etc and one day he offered me a duck heart that he’d roasted and I ate it. Then it became our thing and I would eat all the weird things with him at lunch. Then I grew out of my tomboy phase – thank God.
3. What was the last book you purchased?
Somewhere Inside by Laura and Lisa Ling. I have yet to read it due to my blatant laziness.
4. Do you believe in soul mates?
Yes, absolutely. And I think you can have more than one.
5. If you could wake up tomorrow and be fluent in three additional languages, which ones would you choose?
Spanish, Russian, and Arabic
I’m not big on regrets to be honest. I believe in standing behind one’s decisions for better or worse. I think my only regret would be not telling people things when the timing was right. Sometimes there are moments when you should have said something to someone and didn’t, and then it’s too late. The moment passes, everyone’s walls go back up, their fears kick back in, and it never feels right again. If I believe in one life motto above all else, it’s that timing is everything.
7. Who was the last person to make you cry?
This is kind ridiculous but, Brad Pitt. No, seriously. Legends of the Fall was on TV the other night and I turned it on and basically cried immediately. That movie is just too much. I can’t get through a full five minutes without getting all weepy. And it’s not oh isn’t that’s sad, dab at my eyes kinda crying – like actually weepy. Tears running down my face, full on Claire Danes crying. I can’t even watch the scene where his wife gets killed. I literally cannot take it.
8. Vodka or wine?
Vodka THEN wine – clearly.
9. Do you think Benedict Cumberbatch is hot?
NO – and I am so confused that everyone else seems to. Granted I don’t watch whatever show he’s in so I know nothing except a picture image, but definitely not my type. NO.
10. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
About six months ago. There’s nothing better than a handwritten letter between friends.
11. Favorite musical?
This is tough…I think it has to be Into the Woods. It was the first musical I ever did a production of and it was just so much fun. Anything Stephen Sondheim is a favorite really.
12. What you are most known for among your friends is now your name. What do people call you?
Sass/Sassy. This if funny because I’m actually called Sass at work because I’m so sassy. In a good way obviously.
13.What is the best Valentine’s Day gift you’ve ever received?
This year Erik had a huge slab of bacon cut into the shape of a heart which was pretty awesome. It’s an inside joke as last year I made him a card and wrote a poem about how much we loved bacon and each other. It was cute and ridiculous and the joke stuck. So this is what I got for Valentine’s Day this year:
heart shaped bacon!
Best. Present. Ever.
14. What’s your “type”?
I’m assuming this is in regards to men. Honestly, if memory serves, my type is handsome, creative, and unavailable.
15. What is one of your favorite song lyrics?
“I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah”
