Eight Questions

The fabulous Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons  tagged me in a game of eight questions.  The questions she devised are loads of fun....So here goes... 
 
1. What is your staple meal? (i.e. what meal do you cook most often, when you can't be bothered to think of anything adventurous)
When I was a kid, all I wanted to eat was chips and cheese.  Now that I am an adult, I still have a serious addiction to nachos.  There's something about crispy chips, melted cheese and salsa that just says everything is well with the world.

2. What do you want to be when you grow up?  I hope to never grow up :-)   Ok, I'll let you in on a little secret.  When I was a kid, I told my sister that I wanted to be the Bionic Woman when I grow up but I swore her to secrecy.  Now, the secret's out of the bag and I still love Jaime Sommers.


3. What book are you reading at the moment (if any)?  I always joke with David that I no longer read, I just look at pictures.  Yup, I look at pattern covers and read the instructions before I fall asleep :-)

4. How do you relax?  Looking at patterns, pattern books & magazines and reading sewing blogs (see #8 below).

5. What colour are the interior walls of your home?  Antique White, Daffodil Yellow, Almond and we are planning to paint one of our rooms an Aspen Grey (it's a nice silvery colour).  When we lived in NYC we had orange, terracotta, yellow, green, shimmery blue and white with a blue ceiling!  We love to play with themes in decorating.

6.  What is your guiltiest pleasure? Ferrero Rocher

7.  What time is bed time and getting up time?  I turn into a pumpkin if I don't go to bed before 11pm on a weekday night but for some odd reason I get loads of energy on Friday night and the weekend and can stay up really late!  hahaha!  I get up anywhere between 6 to 8am during the weekdays and 9 to noon on weekends.

8.  How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?  I spend anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour catching up on blogs in the morning over breakfast everyday.  Then sometimes after work I visit blogland as well.  Total weekly average is probably between 7-10 hours.  my goodness! A whole work day! But it's totally worth it!

 Now I get to tag eight people....

    4. What is your favorite holiday? Labor Day Weekend - the weather is still nice enough for us to go someplace.
    5. What is one sewing skill you want to learn/try out? I have a big back and biceps. If I could find out how to adjust for ME in those two areas, I'd be in heaven.
    6. Can you knit? Crochet? Any other crafting talents? Knit, crochet, spin, and make felt hats.
    7. How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)? Hours. I have my regulars that I visit every day and then on weekends, I try to find different ones.

  6. Debi,
    First - I just have to say that I love your blog! Thanks so much for all the time you put into it for our enjoyment...

    I get a kick out of your responses to "What book are you reading?" and "How do you relax?" You are a girl after my own heart! I used to be a big reader, but now I also find that I spend most of my relaxation hours paging through old cookbooks and magazines and other paper ephemera.

    I don't sew at all (yet!) but I can see myself getting obsessed with vintage patterns too!

    Thanks - you are an inspiration...
