Me? Over the Top?

Last week Jeannie of the blog Small and Chic in Cville gave me the "Over the Top" blog award (along with 4 other bloggers). To participate I must answer the questions below...and then pass them on to 5 other bloggers. I like reading these when other bloggers do them so I hope I don't bore you!

Come back later to see who I'm passing it on to. (p.s. I answered these questions last week and just didn't post it until today).

Thanks for the blog love Jeannie!


1. Where is your cell phone: On it's charger right beside my laptop.

2. Your hair: Is freshly styled :) I saw my hairstylist on Saturday. She's going to Miami until March and that makes me very very sad.

3. Your mother: Is in the process of booking a quick visit to the Caribbean. Lucky her!

4. Your father: *blank stare* I haven't spoken to him, by choice, in well over 10 years.

5. Your favourite food: Ugh I could never narrow it down to just one item. I love my mom's curry chicken (Jamaican style), oxtails, and cornmeal porridge. I love mashed potatoes. Noodles. Lobster and shrimp = delicious-ness. Perfectly cooked broccoli. If the above is all I could eat for the rest of my life I'd be a very happy girl :)

6. Your dream last night: I normally remember my dreams really well but am having a hard time remembering last nights' (go figure). I'm pretty certain it was of my sister's suprise birthday dinner her boyfriend and I threw for her.



7. Your favourite drink: Hmmm...Right now I'm really loving Lipton's Lemon Iced Tea. Which is weird cause I've always HATED iced tea until I tried this one a few weeks ago.

8. Your dream/goal: To be happy & satisfied with my life. (Which broken down equals = To inspire my family, friends and those around me. To have a career that is fulfilling that I'm passionate about. To live passionately. To travel off the beaten path and experience different cultures regularly. To not have to worry about money. To live a life I'm proud of. To leave a legacy.)

9. What room are you in: My little brothers.

10. What are your hobbies: I love to read. I enjoy photography. I love decorating my apartment. I love traveling but don't know if I can call it a hobby since I don't get to do it nearly as much as I'd like.

11. What are your fears: To not realize my dream/goals. To be old & single.

12. Where were you last night: My sisters' surprise birthday dinner party.

13. Something you are not: Arrogant, ignorant/closed-minded, high-maintenance. Those are the 3 most unlikely and untrue descriptions someone could ever call me.

14. Muffins: Are good but I'm more of a cupcake gal lately.

15. Wish list items: A job that is fulfilling that I love. Schumacher's Chiang Mai Dragon fabric. The Ikea Alvine Ruta rug.

16. Where did you grow up: Toronto.

17. Last thing you did: Helped get my younger brothers off to school. Quickly edited a few photos from my sisters party and sent them to her so she could get 'em up on fb.

18. What are you wearing: PJs...and a sweater. I was cold.



19. Your pets: Howard - an adorable two year old bichon frise/ toy poodle who is the love of my life.

20. Your friends: Are few. But I'd rather a few I can confide in and count on than lots that I can't.

21. Your life: Is like a book that's still being written. There's been a few cliche moments, some unexpected happenings, a few twists and turns...but there's lots of adventures to come.

22. Your mood: Kinda hungry.

23. Missing someone: Not really.

24. Vehicle: I've been driving my mom's SUV for a few weeks now...

25. Something you're not wearing: Makeup

26. Your favourite store: I don't have a favourite. I know I know - how ungirly of me ;)

27. Your favourite colour: I can't pick just one. I love black, various shades of pink, gray, gold, mustardy yellow.

28. When's the last time you laughed: A few minutes ago when I hid behind the door from Howard and he found me...he makes me laugh ALL the time.

29. When's the last time you cried: ALMOST cried last night when my sister almost cried at her surprise birthday dinner party. Last time I actually cried...hmm...probably during a recent episode of Cold Case. That show always gets me.

30. Your best friend: Lives in New Jersey.

31. One place you go over and over: The pet store to buy Howard's food.

32. One person who emails me regularly: My god-daughter is constantly forwarding me stuff...

33. Favourite place to eat: My mom's house.

Whew! Fun :)

Fun! Thanks for sharing. I used to hate tea as well until recently. How weird.


PS: I saw your comment on my blog. I do design for others - I don't post client work but I figured I'd let you know here since no reads the responses in the comments.

Great fun! We have lots in common from not speaking to our fathers in over a decade and our love for cupcakes. =) I love iced tea and I would rather hav a few close friends I can completely confide in rather than 100 I can't.

I love that photo of Howard! what lens did you use?

Kay* said...

@tamstyles - ha! i think i might have said something similar to him when i was about 14 or 15 - and here I am today :)

@mrs limestone - oh, i love (hot) peppermint tea. i hated iced tea. the concept of cold tea was just weird to me.lol. and i'm so glad you design for others! lolol. your ideas are so fantastic and well executed.

@mandy - ha! sista from another mista lol.

@michelle - thanks! it's the 50/1.8 on my nikon. it's great for bokeh and totally affordable...of course the 50/1.4 (or 1.2 for canon users) would be even sweeter! but more $$$

Thanks, Kay! I asked for the Canon version of that for my birthday :-). I'm saving my money for a wide angle next.
