Now Taking Requests

As requested by La Candina:

1. What time did you get up this morning??8:30 am (and I had to set the alarm!)

2. Diamonds or pearls? Do you even have to *ask*? Gotta go for the sparkle, every time.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Capote. It was brilliant.
?
4. What is your favorite TV show? Glimore Girls, Everwood.

5. What did you have for breakfast? Pink grapefruit & black coffee.

6. What is your middle name? Jean (ugh – so unglamorous)

7. What is your favorite cuisine? Italian or French.

8. What foods do you dislike? Tofu. Anything soy-related, actually. Most dairy (milk; yogurt; sour cream, etc.) other than cheese. Oysters, caviar (why won’t anyone admit it’s fishy Jell-O?), smoked salmon, tuna, sushi. I don’t eat beef or pork. Maybe I should have listed the foods I do like instead!

9. What is your favorite potato chip flavor? I don’t really eat them. I do like Lundberg’s rice chips, though. Sesame-seaweed’s my favorite.

10. What is your favorite CD at the moment?? Blackalicious, The Craft, Janis Joplin, Pearl

11. What kind of car do you drive? I don’t have one at the moment, though I used to own a silver-blue 1966 Mustang convertible. My first and only car.

12. Favorite sandwich?? Chicken Caesar wrap.

13. What characteristics do you despise? Ignorance, cruelty, piety, intolerance.

14. What are your favorite clothes? My lavender suede Manolo Blahniks.

15, If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where WOULDN’T you go? Most of Asia, other than Thailand.

16. What color are your eyes? Green.

17. Favorite brand of clothing? In real life, I seem to wear a lot of Gap and J Jill. If money were no object, Prada.

18. Where would you want to retire to? Like I’ll be able to!

19. Favorite time of day? Twilight.

20. Where were you born? Syracuse, New York. Other than that, it has no redeeming qualities.

21. Favorite sport to watch? Sporty Suzy is teetering on the edge of extinction.

22. Coke or Pepsi? Champagne – if you’re going to drink calories, you might as well get a buzz. Or Perrier, despite the opinion of a well-known socialite who said, “I never drink water. Fish fuck in it.”

23. Are you a morning person or night owl? I’m a reformed morning person. So I’m a dedicated night owl now.

24. Any new and exciting news you?d like to share with everyone? New news? Isn’t that redundant?

25. What did you want to be when you were little? Idle rich. Still hopin’.

26. What are the different jobs you have had in your life? Au pair on the French Riviera; all-purpose worker (checking people in and out, making breakfast for hundreds, giving tours) at a youth hostel that was formerly a 150 year old jail; about a thousand temp secretarial jobs (commitment phobic); investment analyst, wife.

27. Nicknames: What is your nickname? Suz, Suzy (my family also likes to call me things that rhyme, like Floozy, Boozy, etc. and always laugh when I answer).

28. Piercings? Both earlobes, the cartilage of my right ear. A friend pierced my cartilage in 1984, so I feel well ahead of the trend on that one.

29. Ever been to Africa? No.

30. Ever been toilet papering? No.

31. Been in a car accident? Once, when I was about 9 years old. No serious damage. I wasn’t driving.

33. Favorite restaurant? Swan Oyster Depot.

34. Favorite flower? Lilacs, sweet peas, lilies of the valley.

35. Favorite ice cream? Double Rainbow White Pistachio.

36. Favorite fast food restaurant? Those roadside stands in New England where you can get fried clams and lobster rolls.

37. How many times did you fail your driver?s test?? None, even though I hate to drive.

38. Before this one, from whom did you get your last e-mail? Sadly, my boss, if you don’t count junk mail.

39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Do I have to pick just one?

40. Bedtime? When I’m sleepy.

41. Last person you went to dinner with? My fab friend Kelly.

42. What are you listening to right now? The whoosh of traffic and my life zipping by.

43. What is your favorite color? Pink.

44. How many tattoos do you have? None. Makes me feel all distinctive. Am convinced that there will soon be a porn fetish for girls with unmarked and unpierced bodies, since tattoos and piercings are so commonplace.

    I saw no one ever calls me that ever, and you go post it on your blog for the whole world to see? LOL

    No more secrets for you, girl!

    PS – still reeling that you have a pair of Manolo Blahniks. Although I have no idea why I’m surprised!

  2. Mike says:

    I take it you don’t eat oysters at the Swan Oyster Depot.

  3. Suzy says:

    Candi – I’ll try to be a little more discreet! 😉 As for the shoes, they were previously enjoyed and a real steal at $100.

    Mike – You’re right about that. But I can recommend the Crab Louis, especially now it’s Dungeness crab season. The clam chowder and shrimp cocktail are fabulous. Don’t forget the wonderful sourdough bread!

    Now I’m hungry.

    Is that double rainbow white pistachio all one flavor?

  5. Suzy says:

    Karan – Double Rainbow’s just the brand name. White pistachio’s the flavor. Mmmmm.
