Famous in our own lunchtimes

Kel tagged me with Famous in our own lunchtimes. So here goes!

1. What do you like most about where you live?
In terms of my house, I like that when you're inside sitting on the lounge or lying in bed or whatever and looking out the window, it seems like you live in the tree-tops. Plus I'm working to change the house around and repaint and renovate and although the garden is wild and mostly untamable right now, it'll be great to finally get that sorted out next year. I like how friendly the area I live in is, how good the cafes are, that there's snow on the mountains in Winter, the neighbours are lovely and the local deli still makes me weak at the knees.

2. Is there anything strange about where you live?
I was told once that the biggest populations locally are: pagans, gay/lesbian and Adventists. Odd combination, really, I guess. Other than that, there's a strange house that always makes me think of the gingerbread house in Hansel and Gretel. Apparently the guy carved all of the wood for it himself - there's bizarre decorations, gargoyle-style things and so on. Always kind of hurry past there, if only because it brings the sound of clanging oven doors to mind.

3. What's one of your all-time favourite music albums, and why?
That's a really hard question to answer, mainly because the answer would be different all the time depending on what mood I'm in, etc. One album I keep coming back to is Together Ibiza Vol 1 mixed by Norman Jay. It was one of those that come with the Ministry of Sound mag (yay freebies), but it's just really well done.

4. Did you have a passion for something as a kid that you still have now? (If not - what is one of your passions now?)
Books, writing, drawing/painting/oil pastel work. Own more than 700 books, write a lot of random stuff and don't do as much art as I used to, so I should get back into it.

5. What do you like most about having a blog?
Just being able to natter on, in a rather exhibitionistic fashion. Having a blog is also a great way of keeping in touch with people from high school/uni/etc when you don't often get to catch up in reality, on the phone, on msn, whatever.

Pick 3 (or more) people and give them the opportunity to be famous in their own lunchtimes! :)

I'm tagging Melody, Jesus and Kristin to start with.

So you're into oil pastels! What sort of images do you like creating?

Della said...

Yup :) Got into using them in high school - they're so easy and lovely to use. I'll "draw" pretty much anything that strikes my fancy with them :)

I had no idea you were into Ibiza and the Ministry of Sound! They have some amazing trance and chillout mixes...

Hey, you've got to have some surprises, right? *lol*
