Today, I have some answering to do, which has been way overdue. Irena, a dear friend of mine and the creative force behind Oh, Henry! accessories (the bow broach I'm wearing in this post and also here is by her), came up with 11 questions and wanted a few of the lucky ones to answer them. I'm one of the chosen ones so today I'm paying my dues. But before I do that, let me just give you some facts about the lady: For a while, she worked on a cruise ship so she's a bona fide sailor, which has always been a dream of mine; she followed her dreams and went to study abroad, which has always been a dream of mine too; and she's all around gorgeous, which coincidentally has always been a dream of mine as well. She's simply awesome and when you see the questions she's come up with, you'll think she's awesome too.
1) Your favorite online store and why?
eBay. If you can dream it, eBay already has it.
2) What do you hate buying the most?
That's easy - swimwear.
3) What thing on your bucket list would you like to right now?
I'm not going to tell you the thing that's on the top of my bucket list because it might be a bit (too) perverse (for some) and/or illegal, but the second thing on the list is to pet an orca, that's my life dream and mission. When I was little I made my dad promise me we'd have a huge swimming pool in our backyard so I'd be able to have an orca. He lied.
4) What's your favorite word in general?
I've been thinking about this question for 3 days now and I don't know the answer. I love words, I get off on words, but I don't have a favorite one. I do however like how our Slovene high school teacher said "smetana" (Slovene for cream). You could just taste the creaminess when she said it...
5) What's your favorite curse word?
It's not a word, it's a phrase: Fuck me. I always say that (I literally say it in English) when I'm angry and people go: "No problem, honey." Well, fuck me, you're dumb.
6) What's your favorite occupation on free days?
Lounging. I don't want to sound like a whining miserable troll, but I haven't just lounged and done completely nothing in such a long time... Lounging by the sea with a cocktail in my hand and huge shades on my face just watching the waves, that's my favorite pastime in the world.
7) If you were to work in a circus, what would be your specialty?
I can cross my eyes pretty badly and some find it somewhat hilarious. But apparently the tip of my nose moves like crazy, when I talk - that's why I can never have a serious conversation with my boyfriend because he always starts laughing at me and mocking me. I know, I'd suck as a circus freak...
8) If you were to write a book, what would be the title and what would be the genre?
I actually am planning to write a book. It'll be similar to Ellis' American Psycho - bloody and creepy. I don't know the title yet, but I already know the characters and the plot and everything, I just have to find the time to write it.
9) What's your totem animal?
I'm in love with the sea so I like all aquatic mammals, killer whales especially. People most often connect freedom with flying and birds, but I don't. I think sea creatures are the freest (there's nowhere to fall and your environment is in a way pushing you up, not dragging you down) so I think orcas are kind of magical.
10) Recipe for your favorite meal...
Recently, I've been obsessed with grilled cheese and spinach, that's what I make when I cook for myself. Of course, I drown spinach in sour cream and/or Philadelphia cheese spread and throw some grounded Parmigiano in. It's a phase, it'll pass, I promise.
11) Men - with mustaches or without them?
If it's just mustaches, then without. But I do like men with beards, beards and long hair, that in my book equals perfection. Or a goatee, a completely shaved head and a pair of aviator sunglasses, that's my Viagra right there.
Shirt: Two Way
Bow broach: Oh, Henry!
