Tag 8 people, blah blah blah. Change one question and add your own to the end of the list.


  1. You're adorable, cool, interesting and smart! I loved all of your answers, especially the healthy guilt description.

    Also, I admire your light alcohol consumption. My braces might help me reduce mine. I'm a red wine drinker and the braces impart a metallic taste to the wine. Da-amn! [I love learning stuff from you kids!]

  2. I would TOTALLY have dinner with you. We can eat Rice paper things and peanut sauce until our eyes are colored peanuty. I LOVE that stuff!

  3. Great answers - but then I knew they would be.

    If you come to the UK, we are definitely having dinner

    And it's interesting that you dreamt of a fly because they symbolise guilt which you also talked about. Very interesting. They also represent irritating/annoying people in your life - so the fact that it settled in your head with a sofa may mean you're worried someone's getting too comfortable??

  4. Chris - Aw, thanks Chris! Interesting i don't remember any metallic taste when I had braces. Maybe it'll wear off with time?

    Evolutionary Revolutionary - so good! Do you know how to make peanut sauce? Mine never comes out creamy and delicious like Rice Paper People's does.

    Selina Kingston - Thanks! It's a hypothetical date :) Wow - I didn't know that about flies and dreams! freaky. Although if anything I am worried that someone isn't getting comfortable enough!

  5. I'm like, starving, and those rice paper rolls are seriously sending me into munchy mode.

    And yes, we should TOTALLY have dinner. I would LOVE to do some improv with you! :P

  6. Burn - YES! A dinner improv shopping extravaganza! LOVE IT. mmm rice paper rolls.

  7. I would love to have dinner with you, but please let's leave the broccoli and quiche at home :)
