Happy Sunday Funday to all of you not workin folks…unlike moi. Le sigh. How has your weekend been? Mine was relaxin as usual and got topped off nicely with a dinner and date night with my parents at Bangkok Spoon. You really can’t go wrong with Thai food in my opinion! 😉
I got the Volcano Seafood which is absolutely amazing! Mixed seafood (calamari, scallops…I only got one this time pft…mussels and shrimp), bamboo shoots, peppers and eggplant are delivered to the table in a spicy thai sauce and then thrown onto a sizzle plate to finish up the cooking process right before your eyes. Steam facial anyone?
Of course, three veggies is simply not enough variety for this girl, so I also get a lil bowl of mixed Asian veggies to toss into the pan to heat through and get all mixed into the sauce. You can’t never have too many veggies IMO…Amirite?
Another thing…apparently my spice tolerance is up up up because their “spicy” dish was accompanied by a requested bowl of chili flakes as I didn’t detect said ‘spicy’ in said sauce. Maybe they forgot? This girl needs her nose runnin a bit to be content with spice level.
Anyways, with it being Sunday and all, we are back to Sunday programming which is now Spill It Sundays with Arman over at The Big Mans World. Oh heeeyy Arman friend, thanks for the partay! 😀
There is a new twist on this fun lil link-up though….
Instead of Arman asking the questions based on a theme, we have other bloggers setting the pace for the blogger interviews. This week it featured questions by the lovely Juli over at 1000 lovely things!
So what did Juli want to know from all us bloggers this week?
1. In real life are you an extrovert or more introvert person?
I would say that I’m much more of an introvert, especially when I was younger. Don’t get me wrong, I love being around people and I’m actually very sociable BUT I don’t like to be the center of attention. So I’m not one to do this…
I also do enjoy my time alone, which I suppose is where the introvert qualities come in. I’m perfectly content spending an evening in blogging, baking or doing whatever alone with a nice candle burning, sippin on some herbal tea and having music playing. That being said, I crave social situations and can feel a sense of loneliness if I’m cooped up by myself too long.
2. If money was no object, where would you move to?
CAL-to-the-I-FOR-N-AAAA! Or some island like Turks and Caicos or the Bahamas. HEat and the beach is all I can say…and not just because Mother Nature kicked the crap out of us Canadian’s this winter.
3. What are your hobbies besides blogging, food and working out?
There’s more to life than those wonderful things? 😉
4. If you have a sibling what do you have in common and where do you differ the most? If you are an only child tell me about your pet/ mother/ father, best friend …
Well, to start, I’m an only child sooooo I will pick my Mom.
In common- Tastes in music/shows, we both like creating things (she’s the Van Gogh of all things arrangement, while I strive at plating for example), we are told we share the same gestures and facial expressions and I would like to say our giving and kind nature. A common flaw we share is that we can be taken advantage of because we try to appeal to others first and we keep anything negative or anxiety provoking inside rather than expressing it.
How we differ- My Mom has a wonderful presence in a room and the ability to talk with ANYONE and EVERYONE. She demands attention without thinking about it or trying to do it. She has that personality to draw people to her. I’m getting better at branching out and not being as shy as I once once (hello coming out of the corner of people I know and actually chatting with someone I have never met).
5. If you were able to spend one day as the opposite sex, what would you do?
I feel like I would spend the whole day trying to figure out how to walk properly (how do they walk with those things in the way? lol) and pee..
On a serious note though, I admire a man’s strength. It would be nice to push a guy’s body to it’s limits to see how that differs from how I can push my own. #ConfessionsOfAGymAddict
6. If you could have any super power what would it be
To heal. Is that selfish? I ask that because would I be messing with fate too much? Maybe I’m just thinking too much… Story of my life.
I’m extremely sensitive and can literally feel another person’s pain whether I know them or not. So, if anything, if I could take a physical pain that is causing someone to suffer away, I would be happy.
Anyone else obsessed with Charmed? Remember Leo? He was a whitelighter who could heal physical wounds. He could also teleport which would also be super cool.
Now you see me….Now you don’t. Bam I’m in Cali! 😀
7. When you’re upset, what are you doing to cheer yourself up?
Baking. It helps me to let my thoughts wander enough that I don’t think about whatever is upsetting more too much and is something that brings me comfort.
8. You have $500 to spend on anything you want – what would it be?
Can I say a puppy?
…and I just died a lil inside. ADORBZZ!
I miss my puppy 😦
Also, yeah, I realize puppies cost more short and long term than 500 bucks. Sue me, I can dream.
9. What is your favorite piece of art (painting, sculpture, architecture…)?
Hmmm… that’s a toughie as I don’t really go and venture out much to take a look at art. One piece that means a lot to me is this piece that hangs on the wall in my apartment…
10. If you were able to go back in time and give your teenage self any advise what would you say?
Get some confidence and stop worrying so much about EVERYTHING. But for the most part, stop worrying about what others think and about pleasing everyone. In all honesty, I never had much confidence in school years. Even all the way up into high school I was severely lacking in that area. With University life beginning, I began to branch out a bit more socially, found more confidence from the gym and the independence I had never had before AND began seeing my boyfriend who helped to build me up. He may never know how much he did for me, but all I can say is that, today, I feel like a did a 180 confidence wise and a big part of that confidence has come from his love, support and positive outlook of my abilities.
So tell me friends….
What superpower would you have?
What place would be your dream destination?
What advice would you give your teen self?
