The Asian Pear tagged me to participate in a fun round of questions. Here are my answers!
What’s the best thing you’ve purchased or been given in the past six months?
Definitely the Fitbit: not only is it motivating, but it provides me with endless statistics!
What’s your favorite snack? (No one gets to say fruit.)
The snack I make the most is popcorn on the stovetop, with olive oil. But yesterday I was at a community fair and came home with a huge bag of kettle corn (which has both sugar and salt): heaven! My snack weakness is chewy fruit-flavoured candy, everything from strawberry Twizzlers to Jelly Bellies to Skittles.
What form of exercise do you hate the most. (“All” is a perfectly acceptable answer.)
I recently started doing fitness DVDs and found out I hate jumping jacks! Otherwise, I am jealous of runners because of all their PRs and stats, but I hate running and don’t even really “approve” of it. I know so many people who have trained correctly but still had serious and even permanent injuries. No thanks!
If you could afford/manage to live anywhere, where would it be?
During my working life (for many years to come), I want to stay in my current city. Sometimes I dream about living downtown in an expensive condo. In real life, I couldn’t do it, even if I sold all my assets. But my fantasy is going out for late nights and walking home to a stylish apartment with a harbour view! I don’t picture myself moving anywhere else, but (in a post-work fantasy) maybe spending six months in Toronto (CAN) or London (UK) whenever I feel like it!
What’s the geekiest hobby or pastime you have?
I am more a nerd than a geek – I like stats, math and science. I have read books about particle physics “for fun.” But on the geek side, I love LEGO! I have cosplayed at anime cons a couple of times with Link. I am a huge fan of Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki and buy all their movies on DVD. Long live Totoro and the Cat Bus!
I invite you to answer the same questions in the comments, or if you blog, to answer them in a post!
