Favourite Colour Purple hands down. I like a lot of other softer colours, wear a lot of red, but purple is my favourite.
Favourite Animal Oh.... Sharks. I find them fascinating. Absolutely entrancing and scary all at the same time. I think I saw Jaws waaay too young. If I'm swimming in a lake (even little man made lake near my parents) or a backyard pool alone, I'll think of Jaws.
Favourite Non-Alcoholic Drink Tea hands down. Lady Grey Tea, Loyd teas, rooibos tea, peppermint tea, fruit teas like Toasty Almond (or blends like Iced Princess). I think I have at least 3 kinds of tea at each desk that I work at and probably 12-18 kinds of tea at home. I generally take my tea just as is, no added milk or sugar. Although iced tea is completely different, that needs to be the sweet flavour Tanit-Isis was talking about although at home I usually make a pitcher that is part powdered sugar tea and actual brewed tea so I can control the sugar and caffeine content as needed.
Facebook or Twitter Facebook, but not as Seraphinalina, just as me. It's good for organizing invites for the house concerts and keeping tabs on friends who live far away. It's strange now that my mom is on Facebook.
My Passion Jeez, isn't that why I blog? You get my passions in little bite sized bits. Sewing, independent music, being a mom (we're still working getting there), hosting in general. Funny, work isn't going on that list, although I do think of geographer as part of who I am.
Giving or Receiving Gifts Hmm, I do love getting a wrapped present and opening it up and making a big deal to make the giver feel good. But, then I get itchy when my in laws give me a bed, so maybe I am better at giving.
Favourite Pattern Oh... I guess Renfrew at the moment. But I also really like Lekala 5432 for dresses. Sorbetto is always fun too. I'm not a huge pattern collector.
Favourite Day of the Week Friday. Lots of potential for the weekend ahead and it's usually a good client day.
Favourite Flower Depends, in the ground, crocus. Cut, carnations. Both flowers I associate with my Nana and Papa. Papa gave me crocus when I was about 12, a little kit with a plastic windmill for a pot and I do love the purple ones. Papa bought carnations for Nana frequently the last few years she was at home. She was getting to the later stages of Alzeheimer's, he was caring for her when she didn't know anyone and really wasn't talking much anymore, but his love was for better and worse so he bought her flowers.
Favourite Celebrity Role Model Hmm, I'm agreeing with a few others that I don't really see them as role models. I'm not even enough of a red carpet watcher to really identify with a specific person for their fashion sense.
And to nominate others... ElleC beat me to a punch on a few bloggers I enjoy. I'm going to nominate a few that are new to me.
TwistedCistern - what a neat concept, two sisters sharing a blog. I've already traded a few music recommendations with Margaret.
Making it Well - She's just made a lovely paper tape dress form and I'm looking forward to seeing her put it to good use.
Everyone that I read I add to my blog roll. I started reading blogs by finding Gertie's and expanded from there. I hope others find my blog roll helpful as well.
Okay, time to get to work, I've got a full plate today and I've actually been making headway.
