Thursday, November 5

I'm sure you really want to know allll about me.

You don't? Well, then... uh, carry on. There will be an OOTD post later this evening.

Thanks to Stephanie from The 200/365 Project and Marisa from According to Moi for giving me this award, which requires me to regale you all with information about me. I know you're psyched about this.

The 35 Questions:

1. Where is your cell phone?
On my desk, approximately 5 inches away from the keyboard I'm typing on RIGHT NOW.

2. Your hair?
I straightened it today. It's naturally coarse and wavy. It seems "Typical Asian Hair" (read: silky and straight) avoided my head like the plague. Thanks, genetics!

3. Your Mother?
Is amazing. She's judgemental (I can never be skinny enough for her), paranoid (evidently leaving the house at 8 p.m. is cause for concern), and a whole lot of other things that drive me insane, but she IS my mother and I adore her.

4. Your Father?
Doesn't like me too much, ha! But I know he loves me, even though he gets mad at me when my flight gets delayed on the way home. (sorry I can't fly the plane faster, dad)

5. Your favorite food?
Chocolate. I LIKE IT A LOT. And Vietnamese food. YUM. Ever had pho? You should. If you don't like it, there's something wrong with your mouth.

6. Your dream from last night?
One of my friends from college trying to get me to eat some grapes. Which is pretty tame, considering I've had dreams involving dinosaurs, tornadoes, and invisibility before.

7. Your favorite drink?
Milk tea tapioca. If you've never heard of it, you need to find a place that sells bubble tea in your area IMMEDIATELY. Go. I'll wait.


You're still here? FINE. You can go later. Next question:

8. Your dream/goal?
I'm going to echo Stephanie here and say that my goal is to "be happy wherever my life ends up." Brilliant answer, Stephanie! Isn't that all anyone really wants?

9. What room are you in?
The office at work. Pretending to be working. Teeheeheehee! (no really, I'm taking a break. I just got some assignments done) (you don't believe me, do you?)

10. What are your hobbies?
Cooking (badly), playing guitar (badly), singing in my car (badly), shopping (bad for my bank account, at least), SLEEPING (I do this one very well)

11. What is your fear?
Ghosts. It's like I'm still 10 or something. Maybe if I had a proton pack by my bed, I wouldn't be so freaked out after watching A Haunting on the Discovery Channel.

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years?
Somewhere awesome, doing awesome things with awesome people.

13. Where were you last night?
At the playground with the BF. 'Cause we're cool and hip like that. (we're not cool and hip)

14. Something you are not?
Not afraid of ghosts. 'Cause I am.

15. Muffins?
Of the pistachio variety, if you don't mind.

16. Wish List Items?
A sweet apartment with affordable rent. Can Santa cut deals with landlords?

17. Where did you grow up?
Outside the city in what used to be a relatively rural area. They now have a Wal-Mart there. (!!!!!!)

18. Last thing you did?
Read this question. And now type this answer.

19. What are you wearing?
See outfit of the day post that will come later.

20. Your TV?
My laptop is my TV. HOORAY FOR HULU!

21. Your pets?
3 goldfish: Barnaby, Petri, and Waldo.

22. Your friends?
Are good people and I adore them.

23. Your life?
Is progressing.

24. Your mood?
Impatient. I WANT THIS DAY TO END. Is it 5:00 yet? (no, it's 11 a.m.) (maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!!)

25. Missing Someone?

26. Vehicle?
Nigel, my Mazda6. Now complete with bird poo decoration, thanks to the City of Houston's resident pigeons.

27. Something you're not wearing?
A feather boa. (that's for tomorrow, obviously.)

28. Your favorite store?
J.Crew. And Target.

29. Your favorite color?

30. Last time you laughed?
A few minutes ago when a coworker mentioned reading about three guys who emptied a swimming pool and filled it with beer. Classy. ("Fer-git the keg, just go'on over to the ol' beer pool.")

31. Last time you cried?
Sunday night. But the crisis has been resolved!

32. Your best friend?
Is super. Hence, is my best friend.

33. One place you go to over and over?
The bathroom. HA! (I have a weak bladder) (which makes road trips kinda hard)

34. One person who emails you regularly?
The BF. I email him everyday to complain about being bored at work and he responds! He's a keeper.

35. Favorite place to eat?
Tan Tan. Delicious Chinese food. Houstonians, make it a point to eat there at least once. Try the House Special Rice Cake. It's basically a fried dough omelette. How could you go wrong? (hint: you can't)
