What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
It took a while to get it going but I’m ever thankful for the connections I’ve made. In real life it takes a while for people to warm up to me, perhaps it’s my resting bitch face lol but I feel like I’ve made good friends now, 1 year into blogging.
What was the last thing you saw at the theatre and what did you think of it?
In my husband’s OKC profile he mentioned that he’s looking for someone to watch movies at the theatre with since it’s his favourite thing to do. That being said, we haven’t been in aaages. We have to be better. The last movie we watched was either Interstellar or the Hobbit, bad memory. Interstellar was amazing and I bawled like a baby. The Hobbit was great as well but I read the book so I have my issues with it but hot Kili made up for it.
If you meant theatre theatre, we don’t do that often at all but we saw the Book of Mormon last year sometime. Plays are always great but never on the top of my list of fun nights out. Does that mean I lack culture?
What’s left to do on your bucket list? Have you actually crossed anything off it yet?
Gosh, my bucket list is food related and not very difficult to do for some stuff.
1. I want a cronut from Ansel’s bakery
2. I want sushi from Sukiyabashi Jiro. I watched a documentary on it on Netflix and now I have to go. Their plates are like $300 per person but it must be done. Also Jiro (the sushi master) is like 200 years old so he’s not going to be there for much longer.
3. I want to try any type of street food in Thailand
4. I want giant shrimp in Mozambique
5. I want to try a $2 buffet in Las Vegas (or any cheap buffet)
6. I want a reuben sandwich somewhere in New York City (Any suggestions?)
7. I want to try puffer fish sushi somewhere.
8. I want to spend a lot of money on a very expensive restaurant somewhere. One of those 9 course, chef special, foam on the plate type places.
9. I want to go to class to make cheese and start making my own cheese.
10. I want to have a giant bucket of crawfish in the south somewhere.
11. I want to have haggis in Scotland.
I could talk about this stuff forever but I’ll leave it there.
Who is your embarrassing/weird celebrity crush?
Hmmm… Maybe Louis C.K.? Funny goes far with me.
Summer or Winter?
100% Summer! Cocktails!
Beach/pool holiday doing nothing or running, jumping climbing trees somewhere completely random?
Beach/pool please! I’m a big fan of doing nothing.
Did you go to university? If so, what did you study and do you think that your degree has helped you in later life?
I did indeed. I was forced by my parents but oh so grateful for opportunity. Rocky start though. I started with a BA Psychology degree but dropped that with the quickness after a year. The went in a completely different direction with BSc degree in Statistics, Mathematics and Applied Math. And then in SA we do an Honours degree after the Bachelors and before the Masters so I have an honours degree in Statistics.
Has it helped me later in life? Well it helped me get my foot in the door for some great jobs. I haven’t used it to my fullest potential because I always sell myself short when applying for jobs. My jobs have always been in the general realm of statistics but I’ve never find myself not doing a lot of hard core stats. I’m my own worst enemy.
How would you spend your ideal day, with no budget or time restrictions? (i.e. being able to jump countries or continents in an instant)
I would jump home with hubby and take all my USA friends and have a giant braai (barbeque) with my friends and family in SA. Lots beer, lots of meat, lots of laughter, lots of love.
What would you call your autobiography?
Tales of a 30 year old nothing… I guess.
Do you cook/bake from scratch? If so, do you have a signature dish?
Yes! It’s my favourite thing to do ever. I’m not so good at the baking but I recently made a successful batch of hot cross buns from scratch after many flops. Very proud moment.
Signature dish? I had to ask hubby. He says Hong Kong Chicken but now I realise I haven’t made it in ages so he must be hinting. Luckily we have chicken in the freezer :).
My 10 Nominations Are:
That was a lot of fun. I hope you guys have as much fun doing it as I have. Oh and my questions are the same as above. I’m going to nominate new blogs I’ve started following.
