Thank You WEDGE IN THE ROUND for nominating me for the Liebster Award. What could be nicer than having a fellow writer with a great cheese blog think of you for something like this. I don’t even know exactly what happens after this (I think the spirit of the award is to spread the Blog Love) but I love random questions and random questions coming up below…. SO THANKS WITR.
By the terms of the award:
- When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you.
- Pass the award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions.
- You are not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated you!
I have been slacking and just cruising California, but finally here are my answers.
11 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT SUE:
1. I used to work in Visual FX.
2. I really cannot stay up much past 11pm. I do but I don’t like it.
3. I am a morning person (see above).
4. I love tap dancing.
5. I never really cooked anything til 2006.
6. I am watching Smash and Nashville. How did this happen?
7. I am dying for Breaking Bad to return and I miss Eric from True Blood. (I say that as if we’re together)
8. Can’t wait for the last Sookie Stackhouse novel in May though I feel it will suck.
9. Just read The Sisters Brothers and hope that someone is making it into a film right now. NOW.
10. I have a weakness for Fleuvogs.
11. Chez Panisse was shut down by a major fire a week before I was supposed to eat there. I know it’s not all about me–but really?
And now to answer the questions from Wedge in the Round:
- What is the number one reason you started your blog? To write how and about what I felt like.
- And what is the number one reason you continue it? FUN. Except when it’s after 11pm.
- What have you learned from the blog? How to take decent food photos. And less is more.
- How much time do you spend per week on your blog? Not enough.
- What has surprised you about the blog? That I kept it up!
- If you could start over, what would you change? The design. Blah. Someone help me, pleeze.
- When not blogging, what do you do for fun? Go to the movies. Read.
- Your favorite place to eat out? Chantecler.
- Favorite PRINT magazine? Saveur.
- Your next big thing? Hopefully a burrito.
- Guilty pleasure? Smash and Nashville. I think Smash is better, but Nashville-I can’t quit you. Though Scarlett’s hair is taking on a life of its own. And I love Connie Britton.
