Random Tidbits

I stumbled upon this questionnaire on a blog I was reading, and even though I wasn't tagged to do it myself, I decided to cheat to give you some light reading on my Friday day off. Hope you enjoy, and feel free to take these questions over to your blog, answer them, and let me know so I can learn a bit more about you too.

What's your staple meal (ie. what meal do you cook most often when you can't be bothered to be adventurous)? 
Embarrassingly simple, my go to meal when I am feeling lazy and not so adventurous is pink fish noodles. Also known as- take noodles, dump in ketchup, mayo, tuna, and chopped cucumbers and tomatoes. In a rush, I can make this in 15 minutes flat, 4 minutes if I'm using instant rice noodles.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

A financial advisor and a published author. Or a famous chef. Or a world class blogger. (Oh wait- I'm getting there!)

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Vintage)
What book are you reading at the moment (if any)?
The Girl Who Played With Fire by Steig Larsson. It's my second time reading it, and I thoroughly enjoyed it the first time around, so figured, why not? This isn't my standard reading material- my favorite author is Jodi Piccoult, cliche as that might be.

How do you relax?

The internet. Blogging, reading other blogs, watching youtube videos, and reading and posting on various forums, most notably DiaperSwappers.com. I also really enjoy hanging out in nature, going on walks in forests or in fields, creek walking, or simply lying on the grass star gazing. Unfortunately, none of those really end up happening what with being a mom of littles, so I just end up using the computer as my relaxation. Cooking also gives me that same enjoyment, though it would be even nicer if I had a maid or a dishwasher.

What colour are the interior walls of your home?

White. But I've covered them in so many paintings and pictures that the white is barely visible. If I owned my home and could furnish it with coordinating furniture, I'd probably paint it with a bold, lively color like bright blue, bright yellow, bright green, or orange. (I have no taste!)

What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Guilty pleasures? Not me. :-D Though I do like a good homemade alcoholic beverage now and again.

What time is bed time and getting up time?

Too late and too early. Ideally I should be going to sleep at 10:30 or 11 pm because my kids wake me up between 6:00 and 7:30, but bed time usually ends up being closer to 1 am or later.

How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?

Probably an hour or less a day, depending if I got hooked onto a new blog or not.
extra credit:
*what is your favorite movie? Pay it Forward, Avatar, and Dead Poet's Society are the ones that come to mind.
*tell me something embarrassing about yourself. I have a terrible short term memory.
*What really gets on your nerves? At certain times, its lack of personal space. I need little kid's hands off me at some time every day.

Any questions you wanted to ask me? Ask away.
