Deja wants to know about my favorite pastime, food, movie, and color...you'd think these would be simple to answer, but I am rambly, and a non-committer.
Would it be superlame if I were to say that my favorite pastime is blogging, and reading blogs? More so the reading, than the writing, as evidenced by the fact that I am delinquent on many, MANY posts (including, but not limited to quarterly updates for both kids, birth stories, a home tour, a 101 in 1001 update, a MIL update, more random crap bins, my breastfeeding journey, a crocheting post, and so on, ad nauseum - it's all coming eventually, I swear!). Twitter and pinterest fall under this general category as well. Ultimately, "stuff I can do on my phone" gets more time than "stuff that I have to do on my laptop". Sigh.
Other activities I enjoy include reading, drinking wine with my book club ladies, crocheting, watching lots of BAD reality tv, napping, taking bubble baths, playing with makeup and nail polish, taking the kiddos to the zoo, aquarium, museum, etc. Writing this list is making me realize that the stuff I enjoy the most does not equal the stuff I devote the most time to. I probably need to reprioritize my free time.
Favorite food is definitely some sort of Indian food. My coworker and I go to Indian lunch buffet at least twice a week, and it is amazing. I love all of it, but if I had to pick just one thing, probably mutter paneer. I have done two stints of vegetarianism (five years total - I will go back to it for good some day), and Indian food definitely got me through them. YUM.
I always find favorite movie to be nearly impossible to answer. My standby is always Princess Bride because it never gets old, but I'm sure there other movies I enjoy more. My Facebook profile (filled out a million years ago, but still indicative of my favorite type of movies) says Nightwatch, Winter Passing, Away We Go, Shopgirl, Garden State, Lost in Translation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Mean Girls.
I don't really know if I have a favorite color per se, but my wardrobe has been 95% black since about 1993. I also only buy black cars. I also like all shades of gray, mustardy yellow, plummy purple, teal, and raspberry.
How about you - what is your favorite 1) pastime; 2) food; 3) movie; and 4) color?
