  • 1.  What is one thing you are looking forward to in the next week or so?

    Getting out Sweden move all zipped up.  It's getting really frustrating and confusing and might not happen at all now. :(

    2.  What is one thing that you are glad is over and done with this past week?

    H's long trip away, though he's now getting ready for another long trip away, this time to Tokyo

    3.  If you could meet any famous chef, who would it be and what would you ask them to make for you?

    Gordon Ramsey.  It would at least be entertaining!

    4.  What was your favorite Halloween or fancy dress costume?

    Snow White.  That would be from the last Halloween we were in the US, and the party was awesome.

    5.  What is your favorite hobby?

    I love to snuggle up with the H and read.

    Dinner with our entire team, who are visiting from our three other offices.

    temperatures below -10?C!  Hooray for -4!

    3.  If you could meet any famous chef, who would it be and what would you ask them to make for you?
    I have no idea.  I love fancy food, but I don't know any chefs (other than the ones that run reality TV shows Embarrassed)

    4.  What was your favorite Halloween or fancy dress costume?
    Although I don't know if I could bring myself to wear it these days, I think the Eve costume I designed and made in college was pretty cool!

  • 1.  What is one thing you are looking forward to in the next week or so? I am going to Frankfurt next week to be with MH. He is there for work, so during the day I will just be walking around the city, maybe doing a little shopping.

    2.  What is one thing that you are glad is over and done with this past week? I am glad MH comes home today and I am done being alone. He has been on this work trip since Monday, comes back for the weekend and leaves again Monday morning but then I go with him.

    3.  If you could meet any famous chef, who would it be and what would you ask them to make for you? Probably Jamie Oliver, I love that he is so young, and he was even younger when he started. He can cook whatever he wants for me. I'll eat it. If he was to make my favorite food it would be Corned Beef and Cabbage. I know, I'm weird.

    4.  What was your favorite Halloween or fancy dress costume? I was a cat in 1st grade. I loved that costume. Another girl in my class was the same thing. She told me when we were in highschool, that when we were both cats she was so jealous of my outfit because she thought mine was so much better. LOL

    5.  What is your favorite hobby? I am trying to figure that out at the moment. I love to read, and I used to paint, but somewhere that got left behind.

  • 1.  What is one thing you are looking forward to in the next week or so? Being done with the repeat viewings with this guy, one way or another.

    2.  What is one thing that you are glad is over and done with this past week? Just the week in general.

    3.  If you could meet any famous chef, who would it be and what would you ask them to make for you? Mmmm, I don't know, maybe Nigella? I'd get her to do some completely decadent chocolate based dessert.

    4.  What was your favorite Halloween or fancy dress costume? I really loved this seventies outfit I had put together, using some orginal pieces from my mother's wardrobe and creating flares in my old jeans myself (can't sew to save myself, so that was an achievement!)

    5.  What is your favorite hobby? reading 

  • 1.  What is one thing you are looking forward to in the next week or so? -- lunch at a new restaurant on Wednesday with a friend.

    2.  What is one thing that you are glad is over and done with this past week? -- my grandmother's birthday celebration

    3.  If you could meet any famous chef, who would it be and what would you ask them to make for you? -- Commander's Palace Chef Tory McPhail and I'd want him to make buckets of the velvet corn sauce and/or strawberry shortcake

    4.  What was your favorite Halloween or fancy dress costume? -- I'm not really a person who dresses up.  The last time I did was Halloween 7th grade and I was a Playboy Bunny.  It was also the day I started my period.  I think the two are connected.

    5.  What is your favorite hobby? -- I don't really have anything that I would call a hobby.  But if pressed, I'd have to go with reading or traveling.

  • 1.  What is one thing you are looking forward to in the next week or so?

    2.  What is one thing that you are glad is over and done with this past week?

    3.  If you could meet any famous chef, who would it be and what would you ask them to make for you?

    Cat Cora, so I could talk to her about what it is like to make it as a chef, and a celeb chef at that, as a woman and a lesbian. She is my favorite Iron Chef America chef, and she can make me whatever she wants!  

    4.  What was your favorite Halloween or fancy dress costume?

    When I was a kid my Mom and Nana made me an awesome Nefertiti costume. These days I am usually a pirate because it is so easy. Jeans, boots, ruffly blouse, heavy eyeliner, and then I usually buy an eyepatch and plastic sword. In Prague I made one out of cardboard, tinfoil and electrical tape.
