It’s Friday!!

November 10, 2006 at 5:33 pm 3 comments

I came across this list on this site. Since we all know I like a good self-discovering list, here it goes. Feel free to post your answers in the comments!

1. What time did you get up this morning?
7:15 am – or at least that’s when I started pushing “snooze”

2. Diamonds or pearls?
Diamonds

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Copying Beethoven – the story itself isn’t that special but has superb acting by Ed Harris and it also features Phyllida Law, one of my favourite british actresses.

4. What is your favorite TV show?
at the moment, Lost and Everwood.

5. What did you have for breakfast?
hmmm, cheese sandwich (very tasty baguette bread with tomato) and an espresso at the bar. I know, not that best, but I’m afraid I pushed the snooze button one too many times to have time to prepare my own breakfast.

6. What is your middle name?
Eni

7. Favorite cuisine?
not the kind of question to ask a foodie. it changes every month anyways. Right now I’m discovering Indian cuisine
8. What foods do you dislike?
can’t eat meat fat. i’m always closely inspecting my steaks and cleaning even the tiniest bit of fat away. i guess that’s not really a dislike, my body just rejects it right away. i also tried snails (escargot) and didn’t like it. cannot make myself eat brains.

9. What is your favorite crisp (potato chip) flavor?
I have to agree with the lady that did this before me: “like plain Spanish chips, which are done in olive oil.” Very yummy.

10. What is your favorite CD at the moment?
hmm, don’t have a favourite cd at the moment but my iTunes has been playing a lot of Legião Urbana (Brazilian rock), Ramones, The Donnas, and Jesse Cook.

11. What kind of car?
a white and yellow mini cooper

12. Favorite sandwich?
again, hard to pick a favourite food thing. I have been eating a lot of “bodadillos de tortilla francesa”, which are omelette sandwiches served in a baguette bread rubbed with tomato & olive oil.
13. What characteristic do you despise?
nothing bothers me more than people who have no respect for others and people who discriminate against others based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, you name it.

14. Favorite item of clothing?
at the moment, my camper shoes…

15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation
where would you go?
right now? New Zealand… It’s been 10 years now since I wrote to a park in the South Island and started dreaming about hiking there. On another note, India has been growing on me since I met my friend J. and got interested in photography.

16. What color is your bathroom?
it’s sort of mismatched tones of blue. nothing to do with me, I swear!

17. Favorite brand of clothing?
anything that fits properly. i have a non-standard body in a world that only makes clothes for standard people. i really hate shopping for clothes; it’s very depressing. I see lots of really nice clothes, get all excited, select dozens of them only to come out of the dressing room all depressed because nothing fit… ARGH
18. Where would you retire to?
don’t really know. actually, i don’t even know where I want to live before i retire!!

19. Favorite time of the day?
sunrise and sunset. it’s just magical.
20. What was your most memorable birthday?
16… I made it really memorable for all my friends in high school. I reminded them daily of the event for 45 days prior to the date. I recently ran into one of my high school friends on the internet; she still remembered my birthday 😉 That one was most memorable for others. For me, I guess it was when I turned 20. I loved getting out of the teens.
21. Where were you born?
Resende, a town by the mountains, 170 km from Rio de Janeiro.

22. Favorite sport to watch?
Football (soccer for those of you in North America). Dont miss a Barça game.

23. What fabric detergent do you use?
no idea. Alan does the washing.
24. Are you a morning person or a night person?
I’m a morning person who has a hard time getting up in the morning. Does that make sense?
25. What is your shoe size?
7.5 US/38 Euro

26. Do you have any pets?
not anymore.
27. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share with
friends and family?
It’s Friday!!

28. What did you want to be when you were little?
I think I wanted to be a veterinarian (what child doesn’t?) but then I saw a Miss Universe competition where the winner won all sorts of awards (a house, a car, tons of clothes & jewelry…) so I decided I was going to be Miss Universe. Later on I decided I wanted to be a diplomat.

    I love dill pickle chips, which they do not make in the U.S. so I am really missing them!

    Nothing specific at the moment. Working out, I’ve been listening to a lot of old anthem trance I loved years ago. I also recently downloaded the new Justin Timberlake which is surprisingly good.

    15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation

    Hey Dana!
    Thanks for doing this! I enjoyed reading yours… I can see why we became such good friends in TO. I’ll never forget how you were there for me in my worst moment. It sounds pretty lame since it refers to a moment everybody goes through (comps) but I guess if you are at all a perfectionist, it can be pretty bad. And you were there to keep me sane 😉

    I hope you don’t mind getting panicked emails when I start writing or teaching 😉 I do feel lost and out of it at the moment…
