All about me.

| 8.05.2009

  1. I love anything salty, spicy, fatty -- basically ALL junk foods.
  2. I don't look and act my age.
  3. I was and still am one of the boys.
  4. I try not to shop as much as I can.
  5. I lie sometimes - please refer to #4.
  6. I love accomodating guests who visit NY.
  7. I don't do things for free - please refer to #6.
  8. I hate drama - I like to keep things light and fresh.
  9. I can't sleep without a blanket.
  10. I love neutral colors but end up getting flashy and bold ones when I shop.
  11. A close friend used to call me Lisa Frank.
  12. I wore school uniforms more than half of my life.
  13. I prefer fancy jewelries than diamonds.
  14. My everday purse weighs 10 lbs.
  15. I love purses more than shoes.
  16. I passed my written driving test by letting the DMV guy dictate the answers -- not my fault, he was more than willing to do so!!
  17. I drive pretty good though.
  18. Besides the fact I don't have the $$, I don't buy designer clothes.
  19. Topshop has always been my favorite since 2001/2002.
  20. I don't mind waiting, I'd rather be than have others do for me.
  21. I dislike chain "letters" but can't say NO to: Janet , Kaela and Christine :)

Babe, I enjoyed reading your answer so very much! You're so funny and creative! I laughed so hard!!!! To No 14 - WHAT? Emmmm, moment, yep, could happen to me as well. Using a 03 Balenciaga Weekender as an everyday bag right now - and you can call it my "second home" for sure :-D
No 8 is so right, I share that, too.
