V of Grit & Glamour recently answered and asked some interesting questions. We were lucky enough not only to learn a little about the gorgeous and full-on glamazon V, but also to be included in the list of bloggers from whom she wants some answers. As I am in desperate need of a break from the Project That Will Not End, I’m ringing in right now.
V’s questions appear in bold below with my answers in regular type directly after.
1. Practically everyone is six degrees from a celebrity, political figure, or famous person. Will you explain your six degrees of separation from someone famous?
A VERY close friend dated Dean McDermott (a.k.a. Tori Spelling’s creepoid husband who left his pregnant wife to be famous) when she was in high school and he was not. My friend (whom I did not know at the time) dumped him. She couldn’t understand why he wanted to go out with someone in high school. Clearly, he’s always been a class act.
Also, my partner’s friend did the voice-overs for CBC Television at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Greece. That’s right. I am hooked up, celebrity-wise.
2. What have you always wanted to do, but haven’t yet?
Ha! ‘So many answers, many of which are unfit for this public forum. Let’s go with “Finish the Project That Will Not End.” Because then, you know, I’d have a book.
3. Your favourite meal is. . .
I cannot choose because I love food so very, very much. If I HAD to choose, it would be the six course private dinner served at a winery in the British Columbia interior as part of a friend’s wedding celebrations. The chef created each course to pair perfectly with a different wine, and gave a brief description of his process and the flavours before each plate was served. It was divine. Also, by the end, I was drunk-drunketty-drunk.
Short answer: anything that pairs divinely with a divine wine.
4. If you could only save one pair of shoes in your closet, which pair would it be, and why?
These ones (by Fluevog):
Because they’re exquisite, utterly impractical (yet not entirely uncomfortable), and the first pair I ever splurged on just because I could.
5. Which handbag would you buy if money were no object?
Honestly, I wouldn’t. I don’t have the handbag love. When I dream, I dream in boots (currently, anything buttery soft, black or dove-grey, and over-the-knee) and dresses (right now, I want this and this, because I can’t let go of summer).
6. Who is your girl crush?
I have a few. Here are two:
Celebrity: Kristen Stewart-but only when she’s not hanging on her Twilight co-stars.
Nerd crush: An older butch woman on the executive of a professional association of which I’m a member. Well, sometimes she’s butch. Sometimes she rocks a pencil skirt and I almost lose myself in her awesomeness.
7. What is your vice?
Deep, full-bodied, red wine. Well, that and vampire fiction. Okay, and maybe shoes. And boots. But mostly wine.
8. Last song you listened to?
This one. But before that, this one. Because I’ve got the mellow playlist going to facilitate work (and-obviously-procrastination).
Thanks, V, for thinking of us! D-Med & E-Jo, are you going to answer, too?
To be honest, I don’t have any lists of questions for you. I mostly enjoy learning a little more about you each time you post on your blog, even though I also groove on these question list thingies.
Today, I mostly want to know what you dream about when you dream of shopping.
Because fantasy shopping items are always ethically produced as well as immediately accessible and entirely capable of inducing lifelong happiness.
