Stolen directly from Dave. I make no apologies for my lameness in this.


  • What is your salad dressing of choice? Ranch? Honey Mustard? I dunno.
  • What is your favorite fast food restaurant? Chipotle. Fast fresh Mexican food place in Austin. I hear it's owned in part by McDonald's, but I don't care. It's fresh, good and fairly healthy.
  • What is your favorite sit down restaurant? Austin: Chuy's. London: Mr. Choy's. Bergamo: Albergo Sole. This amazing Italian homestyle place in the old city. We ate there three times in three days. Oslo: Right now, Hard Rock.
  • On average, what size tip do you leave at a restaurant? Not to sound all travel-snobby, but it depends on the country. If you leave too much tip in some countries, they kind of look at you funny. 20% US, then go from there depending on where I am.
  • What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of? Mushrooms. Fried chicken. Milk. Popcorn. This pasta I had in Italy with mushrooms and tomatoes. Vietnamese bun (vermicelli noodles with salad and fish sauce).
  • Name three foods you detest above all others. red/green/yellow peppers. Brussel sprouts. Herring.
  • What is your favorite dish to order in a Chinese restaurant? Crispy duck or Won ton soup.
  • What are your pizza toppings of choice? I just had one in Bergamo with shrimp, porcini mushrooms, and rocket. I actually figured out exactly how to replicate it at home and I can now say I make a mean authentic Italian pizza.
  • What do you like to put on your toast? Butter. Then I let the butter soak in and spread it with more butter. (Dave said that so perfectly, I must leave it in). Then I add chocolate sprinkles, a trick I learned from the Dutch. They actually have these little boxes of chocolate sprinkles that you put on your toast! They melt into the butter and it's Oh So Good. The Dutch ROCK when it comes to fun food innovation.....
  • What is your favorite type of gum? Remember Fruit Stripes? Those or those packets of tiny Chiclets... I eat the whole packet by bit and have little crunchy yummy bits for half an our.


  • Number of contacts in your cell phone? I'm too lazy to count. So let's say....30?
  • Number of contacts in your email address book? See above....but it's over 100 this time.
  • What is your wallpaper on your computer? These cute baby tigers from a zoo in China. One of them is yawning and it's just so perfect traditional Chinese tiger.....
  • What is your screensaver on your computer? Random photos from my travels.
  • Are there naked pictures saved on your computer? No. I don’t see the point.
  • How many land line phones do you have in your house? One. Could do without it, though and just have internet.
  • How many televisions are in your house? Two, though one is NTSC so we can't use it to watch Norwegian TV. . So I just use it to watch US videos and DVD's.
  • What kitchen appliance do you use the least? I use them all fairly frequently. But lately, maybe the microwave?
  • What is the format of the radio station you listen to the most? If I listen, which is rare, it’s talk. The BBC. I mostly iPod and podcast listen now.
  • How many sex toys do you own that require batteries? Mine are gas powered and have a pull cord to start like a chainsaw. I find I need that extra “oomph”.


  • What do you consider to be your best physical attribute? I’d say my eyes, but everybody’s too busy looking at my tits to see them.
  • Are you right handed or left handed? Right.
  • Do you like your smile? Not really. It doesn’t turn up at the edges enough. I always look Mona Lisa.
  • Have you ever had anything removed from your body? Tonsils. Appendix. Possibly parts of my brain when that UFO pulled me up.
  • Would you like to? Gee, I think I need what’s left.
  • Do you prefer to read when you go to the bathroom? Whatever’s handy, or my book du jour.
  • Which of your five senses do you think is keenest? I’m fairly super hero with smell, touch and taste. Makes up for my myopia. I’m blinder than shit.
  • When was the last time you had a cavity? Well, that cavity search at the airport…oh, you mean dental. Um, 2002? Root canal.
  • What is the heaviest item you lift regularly? My conscience. My ass off the sofa.
  • Have you ever been knocked unconscious? Fell off a horse onto my head once. Basically unconscious. Hurt like hell. Also fainted twice when my brother was in the hospital.


  • If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die? Nope. Hell no. I get stressed enough knowing that the first day of fall is coming. I hate the feeling of time passing knowing that something is coming to an end. HATE IT.
  • If you could change your first name, what would you change it to? Virginia or Elizabeth.
  • How do you express your artistic side? Every thing I do, whether it’s cooking, writing, making stuff, the way I dress. I don’t really even think about expressing it, it’s just there. Couldn’t escape it if I tried.
  • What color do you think you look best in? Red or turquoise.
  • How long do you think you could last in a medium security prison? I don’t know what they are like. I would think as long as I had enough books to hand and nobody knifed me or made me their bitch, I could be ok for a while.
  • Have you ever swallowed a non-food item by mistake? The odd flying bug?
  • If we weren’t bound by society’s conventions, do you have a relative you would make a pass at? No. Sorry.
  • How often do you go to church? When I am sightseeing and I want to check out a cathedral. I’m a church-looker, not a church-goer.
  • Have you ever saved someone’s life? Yes. I think. Or at least prevented a nasty accident a few times.
  • Has someone ever saved yours? Numerous times, whether physically or mentally. .

For this last section, if you would do it for less or more money, indicate how much.

  • Would you walk naked for a half mile down a public street for $100,000? Yep. Especially here in Norway. Gimme the money, I’ll do it now.
  • Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100? Sure. No worries. Why not?
  • Would you have sex with a member of the same sex for $10,000? Well…maybe with Angelina Jolie.
  • Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000? Fuck no.
  • Would you never blog again for $50,000? Yes. As long as I could still read other blogs, comment and email as usual. Maybe I could podcast instead?
  • Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000? Sure. But I don’t think anyone would want to look at it…and only if I could do it Playboy style, not Penthouse style. No splaying of naughty bits or anything like that. Not porny, just naked.
  • Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000? I don’t know. I don’t think so. I’d hurl and it would come out my nose and just hurt.
  • Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000? No. I have a real problem with violence or hurting other humans. It’s not the fear of punishment that keeps me from it, it would be the look in their eyes that would. I just couldn’t. I can’t even watch violent movies.
  • Would you shave your head and get your entire body waxed for $5,000? No. Probably not. Try $25,000. I like my hair a lot. Plus waxing HURTS. And regrowth is a beeeeyotch.
  • Would you give up watching television for a year for $25,000? I don’t know. What else would I have to do on these dark winter nights? Could I watch videos and dvd’s of favorite shows from the past? In that case, yes.
