Since Sally Sunshine tagged me...
Note! Victoria, Zan and Veronica, I'm tagging you!

A- Available or Single Neither
B- Best Friend My husband. 1, 2, 3…aww.
C- Cake or Pie Cake, as long as it’s chocolate. I prefer the really dense Italian flourless kind.
D- Drink of Choice Nigori sake or vodka, sometimes red wine. Definitely not beer. Martinis are always welcome!
E- Essential Item Definitely my mp3 player. I’m a music geek. I never leave home without it.
F- Favorite Color Red or black. Purple works too if it’s dark. Did I mention that I used to be a goth? And that I’m kind of indecisive?
G- Gummi Bears or Worms Gummi bears
H- Hometown Honestly, I don’t really have one. I moved abroad for the first time when I was 2, I don’t even remember the town I was born in. If you mean where I think of as home then London.
I- Indulgence Travel I flew to Arizona in February just to see a band!
J- January or February January. February was my mother’s birthday (on Valentines Day), every year around that time I get sad.
K- Kids Hell no!
L- Life is incomplete without Good friends, good food, and good music.
M- Marriage Date 6/21/98
N- Number of Siblings? Zero
O- Oranges or Apples? Both
P- Phobias/Fears None, really. I’m not fond of biting/stinging insects (wasps, bees etc) but that’s about it. I do have a semi-phobia about sharks, though.
Q- Favorite Quote
For some reason I hate quotes. It always makes me think the person is too lazy to find something witty to say themselves.
R- Reasons to smile
Sunshine, hugs, my cat, the sound of rain falling when you’re lying in bed at night, that feeling you get at a really great concert where the crowd is all in synch and the bass is so strong you can feel it through your entire body
S- Season Summer
T- Tag Three Hmm…Victoria, Zan and Veronica
U- Unknown Fact About Me None. Seriously, ask me anything. Honestly and openness are probably my most distinguishing characteristics
V - Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals Oppressor of animals. I love grilled meat. I do eat tons of vegetables, though.
W- Worst Habit I eat too much candy, which is good for neither the ass nor the teeth. Also procrastination.
X - X-rays or Ultrasounds Ultrasounds. My mother died of breast cancer so I have to get checked, and apparently my breast tissue is “too dense” for mammograms to work. Which is fine with me, because they hurt like hell.
Y- Your Favorite Foods Chocolate, sushi and/or sashimi (mmm, Maguro), grilled meats, Imam Bayaldi, chana dal, chicken and basil stir fry with garlic and chillies, almost any kind of curry, pho, Vietnamese chicken salad, bun with grilled beef, kung pao chicken, stir fried snow pea sprouts, coconut rice, Persian melon, clementines, bananas, cherries, pomegranates, chicken tikka, miso, jambalaya, a really good steak, hamachi kama, mongolian beef, udon, Turkish lentil soup, chicken pilaf, brownies, Thai red curry, grilled fish, asparagus, eggplant, spinach but only if it’s raw or barely cooked, wine gums, Mexican dark caramel, gumbo, Japanese beef and potato stew (Mommy food), beef rendang, nasi goreng, chilli crab, laksa, elderflower sorbet.
Z- Zodiac Virgo Ox

What's the difference between regular caramel (if something like caramel can be called "regular") and Mexican dark caramel?

Cassandra Says said...

The Mexican kind of darker and seems to be cooked for a bit longer, so it has an almost burned flavor. It's less sweet, more complex. Ever had an alfajor cookie? It's the stuff on the inside.
Spain produces a similar kind of caramel as a hard candy.

Arwen said...

Hey. I have a sister born Valentine's day.
I also prefer January, but only because Everyone I Know is an Aquarian. Which means we're running through February.

And add my name to the list, my Aunt was born on Valentine's Day. Aquarians Rule!

P.S. I'm going for sushi & sake tonight, AGAIN, can you believe it? What a lush!

Octogalore said...

Love sushi and eggplant too! Spinach too, but well cooked with a lotta garlic.

Cassandra Says said...

So the consensus is that everyone loves sushi but only Belle and I love sweet things?
She and I are going to have to go out to dinner one of these days, especially since we both live in restaurant heavens.

Cassandra Says said...

Hey, Zan - You go to New Orleans every once in a while, right? Have you ever been to Mother's?
The jambalaya there was to die for. I even ate the cornbread, which I normally despise.

Veronica said...

I finally did this. Sorry for the delay.

Zan said...

I haven't been to Mothers, no. But I'll look it up next time I'm down there. :) It's sooo nice having a real city less than an hour away. At last! My lifegoal, to live in a city with decent public transporation, so I no longer have to have a car. :)
