We realize this may not be something for everyone’s taste it’s completely up to you. Should you choose to participate we will look forward to your responses.
1. Why did you start blogging?
G-uno – I have always been fascinated by other people’s perceptions, and interpretations. I’m a huge fan of the truth, and blogs give a lot leadway for people to express themselves. I also wanted to be able to openly write about my own life. I keep wondering how our families & friends will react if we ever decide to tell them about our secret blog. It’s just pure fun! 😉
g2 – to vent, to bitch, to rant and rave *grin* To hopefully help someone who is currently going though something I’ve already gone through in the hopes of giving them a shortcut. In turn, learn something about myself as well. To remind people they matter. That its ok to be angry, but not be consumed by it, its ok to hurt and its ok to be selfish sometimes.
2. What’s your favorite thing to do on a Sunday?
G-uno – Wake up early with my husband, drink good coffee, and torture him with my latest Netflix Indie pick.
g2 – absolutely as little as possible, It’s a religion I’m heavily devoted to. Sometimes when I really don’t want to get out of bed, I pretend I’m a sloth. If I can stretch my impersonation out long enough my kid gets sick of it and makes breakfast.
3. Do you prefer the sea, mountains, or countryside?
G-uno – The sea & the mountains equally.
g2 – All of them are pretty from a cozy spot behind my computer and a big window, large cup of java in hand.
4. What’s your favorite foreign dish?
G-uno- Greek stuffed eggplant, Mom’s egg rolls.
g2 – G-uno’s mom’s eggplant sauce, G-uno’s mom’s chicken on a stick, G-uno’s mom’s egg rolls…. um well anything the woman cooks. I’m actually a big foodie, this past week was sashimi one night and dolmades a couple nights later. I will try just about anything and have once argued with a waiter over the subtle differences between Thai curry and Indian curry when the cook advertised one and served the other. Good thing I already had our food so he didn’t get a chance to spit in it.
5. What has been the happiest day of your life so far?
G-uno – That’s a hard question because there are so many of equal happiness.
g-2 – I… have a hard time with this one as well. I have been content, but I have this bad habit of poisoning happy moments with anxiety and worry, only when I become conscious of being happy (wtf?). When I’m not paying attention, I can have a blast over nothing.
6. If you won the lottery what would you do?
G-uno – After I hooked up all my family, friends, some other very random and deserving people I would travel everywhere!
g2 – Get out from under the school debt, invest, redefine the term “work,” though I couldn’t stop working. I would always have to do something productive.
7.What place would you want to visit the most?
G-uno – Seriously cannot pick just one!
g-2 – London, the Mediterranean, Scotland, Ireland, Egypt, Japan… damn… just one?
8. What’s your favorite ingredient to use in the kitchen?
G-uno – Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
g2 – fish sauce
9. What would you like to be in another life?
G-uno- World Explorer.
g2 – tasmanian devil
10. What’s your favorite dessert?
G-uno – Peanut butter cookies.
g-2 – dark chocolate
