Hippie Cahier tagged me with these interesting questions and below are my answers. Enjoy!:
1. If you could have any superpower, what would you have? Why?
It would be cool to be able to fly, but it would really be something to shapeshift into different people or animals.
2. Who is your style icon?
Honestly, I don’t have one. I just buy what is comfortable. I tend to prefer darker colours and clothing that is very practical as well. (ie. Stuff with pockets to carry camera and snacks)
3. What is your favorite quote?
Here is a good one that I found recently: “Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere. “-Carl Sagan
4. What is the best compliment you’ve ever received?
When I was 19 years old, I caught mono and tonsilitis and was literally sick as a dog! It was bad! This was pre-Hubby and my parents were away, so I had to rely on a friend to come over and take care of me. My temperature was dangerously high and I must have looked like hell, but my friend remarked that I looked beautiful even when I was sick. It was really nice to hear even if I hunkered down over a toilet and threw up, right afterwards.
5. What playlist/cd is in your CD player/iPod right now? This:
There are a lot of romantic memories of me and Hubby’s early dating days on that cd. We even had one of the songs played as “our song” at our wedding. Other than that, it’s been my regular rotation of 70s rock tunes, ambient, classical and jazz. I recently ordered this cd and can’t wait for it to arrive in the mail! (I wish I could play the cello)
6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
Night owl!! I am not a morning person and loathe morning people. Not the quiet ones who enjoy the early rising sun, but the bouncy, perky, annoying-ass morning people. Grrrr!
Night is such a beautiful time, I love astronomy and love staring at all the planets, stars and comets. Looking out at the universe has an unbelievably calming effect-We are all just miniscule dots in an enormous universe.
7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
I complained about this on Hippie’s blog, but why is it always dogs or cats? Why can’t it be both? Or rats? Or pigs? Or lemurs? (Err..o.k. lemurs technically may not make the best house pets. They are awesome though!And check out those eyes. Squeeee!) I love cats and dogs for different reasons and don’t really gravitate towards one or the other. Our house feels empty without the craziness of both.
8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
I suffer from depression or the ‘blues’ sometimes, but am trying to become a more positive person. I’ve spent far too much time in Depressionland-Ruminating on past hurts, self doubt and fear that I want to become lighter and more optimistic. So I’m striving to become the happiest depressed person you’ll meet! (Or the most conflicted, whatever!)
