I had to play.
1. What is your current obsession?
Blogging. And now that I'm busy 12 hours a day with work, I'm in withdrawal.
2. Which item of clothing do you wear often?
Lately it's all about rain gear, wellies and baseball hats (I'm shooting in the outdoors, and the weather's been crappy all week). I love to dress up when I go out occasionally (have been quite house-bound recently), and that's when old vintage dresses, boots, czarina overcoats and crazy striped Wizard of Oz-type stockings come into play.
3. What's for dinner?
I got home early today and was lucky enough to spend some time with E., AND make dinner. The menu featured pasta with sauteed broccoli raab (recipe hailing from Puglia, shall post it soon) and a slice of chocolate cake my mom dropped off this afternoon while the house was empty. She's like a little mouse that instead of stealing food, leaves goodies behind.
4. What are you listening to?
The sound of my son's snoring. In my first post, I write about this favorite background music.
5. Say something to the one that tagged you.
Rosaria, I'm happy you tagged me for this game. You were my first blogland contact, later my friend; and since then you have introduced me to many wonderful others. I applaud your dedication to teaching on all levels, your caring nature, and the romantic side of your storybook life. There are a few years between us, but the gap is non-existent. Thank you so much for all you give us with your blog.
6. Favorite vacation spots? (I've made this plural, couldn't decide one over the other)
Venice for its intrigue, art, architecture, sensuality and food.
Positano for its sea, landscape, seafood and related memories.
7. What I'm reading right now?
"The Sound of Waves," by Yukio Mishima
8. Four words to describe myself.
Dreamer, stubborn, compassionate, epicurean.
9. Guilty pleasure.
I have fantasies of spending a week in a spa in Bali. Alone.
10. First Spring thing?
Picking (and then feasting on) local wild strawberries in the misty countryside that borders Lake Nemi, near Rome.
11. What do you look forward to?
I have written a cookbook, actually more of a tour guide of Italian food and lifestyle. My wish is to see in print. Some day...
Now it's my turn to tag 8 others to do the same, respond to the questions, rework those you need to rework, replace, add, and tag 8 worthy others.
