Share the Liebs

The sweet, awesome, and awesomely sweet Eeka at Live.Love.Random nominated me for the Liebster Award this past week, and in accordance with the rules, I now must share some liebs - er, love - with fellow bloggers!

But first, questions must be answered:

1. What is your favorite vacation spot & why?

I already live in the greatest city on Earth!  But when I deign to leave the island Manhattan, I love going to Buffalo to visit my family and enjoy a complete change of pace, or to the quiet artsy haven of Owego, New York.

2. In what era would you love to live in & why?

I wish I could go back to the '60s and '70s in American history.  The music, the clothes, and the revolutionary spirit all jive really well with my personality.  Mostly the music, though!

3. You have three wishes...go! (only unlimited wishing.)

Okay, I would wish to own an apartment in a brownstone on Perry Street in Greenwich Village.  After that, I would wish for B-level celebrity status.  And then, I will wish for clear skin.  Ta-da!

4. If you could change you home to be "you" and money wasn't an option, what would you change?

I want to paint some bright, bold accent walls.  Red behind the sofa in the living room, maybe a bright gold with some texture in the hallway.  I want to hang my blue guitar on my bedroom wall, and maybe add a tapestry of the zodiac in bright gold and red.

5. What is your favorite home cooked meal & why?

This is not a cop-out, I genuinely love my home-cooked pasta salad.  Simple as it may be, it's greatly satisfying.  I invented it myself when I was in deep sorrow, and it's become my own comfort food:  cheap and easy enough to have all the time and a bit therapeutic to assemble.

6. If you could be a magical creature, what would you be?

I would be a Time Lord!  Two hearts, long life, and regeneration sounds pretty awesome, too.

7. Purple monkeys eat rotten coconuts, in rainbow tutus because.....

...Lady Gaga sold them to the Cylons during the Revolutionary War.

8. You have 24 hours to live, who are you with and what are your plans for the next 23 hours?

I would wander all over Manhattan, not sleeping, eating cupcakes, dancing in the street.  Probably by myself, listening to music.  I would walk my entire beloved island alone, as it should be, until I dropped dead in the gutter, in my favourite outfit, sugar high and starry-eyed.

9. What is your favorite cupcake flavor?

I'm torn here between the peanut butter cupcakes we sell at work, or Sprinkles Cupcakes' salted caramel cupcakes!  Don't get me started on cupcakes, though - SO good!

10. What is your most favorite birthday memory?

On my 25th birthday, I took an epic walk from the East Village up to Times Square to ring in my 25th year amid the lights and the hustle and bustle.  Standing in the haze of neon, middle of the night but bright as day, is one of my fondest memories, period.

11. Where would you love to live when you're retired & why?

I and my clear skin shall reside semi-famously down on Perry Street.

Now, as is described in the rules, I must tag some fellow bloggers.  However, many of my prospective tag-ees have already won the award, so I'd just like to say some nice words about some nice bloggers.

Follow back Eeka at Live.Love.Random for her sweetness and unfailing honesty.  She also has great hair and outfit posts.  Michael at Crazy Tragic Almost Magic has come so far as a blogger in the past year and just took some amazing photos and could absolutely be a model, as far as I'm concerned.  Rachele at The Nearsighted Owl is sexy and brash and writes so well, I eagerly await each new post.  Check out their blogs and throw them a follow, if you please.  They deserve some liebs!


  1. Awww! That's so sweet of you. Does it make me lame that I want to e-hug you?!

  2. Good post. I am experiencing a few of these issues as well..
