That said, being that I’ve got nothing (again! I’ve had a whole lot of nothing lately haven’t I?) I’m going to answer a bunch of questions (I’m so boring, I’m so sorry) this time, from some I’ve borrowed from a Cod a Bean and Everything in Between . Bear with me please and thank you.
If there could only be one season year round which would you choose?
Summer, hands down. (at least that’s my answer today, who knows, if I answered tomorrow, I could say Autumn, but I doubt it). I love eating outside, barbecuing with friends, and wearing shorts and summer dresses. Plus warm sunny weather is much more conducive for day trips to places like Cassis and Monaco.
Gee, I don’t know. I’m going to have to go with Italy on this one. And it’s not just because I’m already in France, I genuinely like Italy. OK, so I’ve only been to Rome, but I really liked it. I like Italian food (who doesn’t?) Italian wine (sshh!) and I’d love to see Florence and Milan too so yeah, I’m going with Italy on this one. Plus I really like the idea of cruising around on a Vespa shouting, “ciao bella!” at every turn.
Hmmm… it has to be red. White is normally my third choice after rosé and red (but don’t get me wrong, if you hand me a glass of white I’ll drink it), and while Champagne is wonderful, it’s also my kryptonite. After glass two and I’m entering the dancing on tables danger zone.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret… I’m kind of scared of cats. I don’t know what it is, but I don’t entirely trust them, they freak me out a little.
One job you haven’t had that would be a dream job.
Secretary of State (I’ve talked about this before). I like diplomacy. And speaking of Secretary of State, have any of you seen the blog Texts From Hillary? So clever.
One famous person you would love to meet.
Would it be superficial for me to say Ryan Gosling? Yes? Bummer.
One movie that you could watch again and again…
Giant. I love this movie, and even though it was made over fifty years ago, I still find it’s social commentary relevant. Plus, you get to stare at Rock Hudson and James Dean for over two hours. #oldschooleyecandy
You are given a plane ticket to fly anywhere in the world this weekend, where are you going?
It’s funny, because I just answered this question a couple of weeks ago and my answer is the same, NYC, which I guess means, I really need a trip to the Big Apple (But, if we’re talking more than a weekend, than my answer is Melbourne. I’d visit Bec, her new baby, and The Pink Leopard, and sample every bit of culinary delights that the city has to offer. Melbourne is hopping in the foodosphere at the moment and I want to taste it).
One decade you wish you could have lived in (including this one).
Oh I don’t know, maybe the 1960s. It would be pretty amazing to witness all that change and maybe be a part of it, and of course the fashion was pretty swish. Or, the 12th Century so I could see Le Petit Village when all the buildings were still brand new. That would be weird.
If you had to change your name, what would you name yourself?
