11 meme

Both Chrissy and Chantilly have tagged me in this meme. I've done it before, but I thought it would be fun to throw some randomness that will let you get to know me a little better :).

1. I don't usually care for models, but I like Coco Rocha a lot. There's something about her imagine and personality that I find very appealing. Plus, she devotes lots of her time to charity, which makes her even more delightful. If you don't know who she is, you might have seen her tap dancing in this commercial.

She's recently done this video for Facebook with Dos and Don'ts, which is kind of funny.

2.- I love mellow music (Belle & Sebastian, Kings of Convenience, Camera Obscura ...), but I also enjoy some more rock n' roll/violent songs such as Never Wanted to Dance by Mindless Self Indulgence. My favorite part is when the singer says, "But you wouldn't take No for an answer, you fucking bitch" Haha, so not me!

3.- I'm obsessed with taking yawning photos of our cats.

4.- I still haven't tried a bear claw, a real Cinnabon or funnel cake.

5.- I can't tell whether I hate or like peanut butter, marshmallows and bubble tea.

6.- I think being jobless is rotting me inside :(.

7.- I miss tea houses and restaurants from Argentina.

8.- My mom is always very creepy and mean in my dreams. She was such a sweet person!

9.- I suck at dieting and exercising. America doesn't help much in this respect, hehe. I mean, you can get junk food for cheap and here in California, people are always driving. It's totally my fault, though; I wish I had stronger willpower and weren't so lazy.

10.- These are some expressions in English I find funny: fanny pack, hump day, leap day, cankers.

11.- I accidentally forgot to return this pencil when we went to Ikea. It's one of those pencils they give you to take down notes when you visit the store.

Since I got tagged by 2 people, I chose 5 questions from each.
5 questions from Chrissy:
a. Name your favorite movie of all times.
I can't pick just one! I love Garden State, Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain, Trainspotting, Lars and the Real Girl ... I can watch them over and over.

b. Is there someone that inspires you to be a better version of yourself?
David. He brings out the best in me and pushes me to try to better myself. 

c. What is your favorite kind of food?
I'll have to say Argentine and Japanese, haha.

d. Smartphone or cellphone and what kind?
David bought this phone for me before I arrived in California. It's a Palm Pixie and it's my first smartphone. At first, I thought it was too much technology for me, but it's really nice to be able to check e-mails, take photos and record videos wherever I am.

e. Do you like reality TV? Which show is your guilty pleasure?
I recently discovered CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and I love it. I've only watched the 2011 edition. If you're a fashion/jewelry designer, I totally recommend it. It's only about 6 episodes and it's on Hulu Plus. 
But I guess my guilty pleasure is America's Next Top Model. I think I've watched most of their seasons :/.

5 questions from Chantilly
f. Where are you sitting and what are you doing right now?
I'm sitting on a couch in the living room and I'm answering these questions and listening to music.

g. What's your favorite fruit? Least favorite?
I love banana and hate mango, I guess.

h. Are you a dog or cat person?
Definitely a cat person! I've never owned a dog.

i. Name you top 5 bands/music artists.
I love Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura, Kula Shaker, Pulp, Entre Rios (with Isol as a singer). Meiko and Chantilly are also among my favorite musicians ;).

j. On your fantasy trip to the world, where would you go?
I dream of going to Prague, Glasgow and Budapest.

I've tagged people the last time I did this, but not many wanted to get involved, so I'll skip the tagging this time. I'm sorry if I've bored you.

Hope you're having a great week! ;D

Miki...I've been tagged 3 or 4 times now...and I can't bring myself to do it! I feel like such an awful blogger. I can't think of that many random facts about myself! You did a bang up job on your 11 things though.

I suck at dieting too...and exercising. I don't know if it's because I'm lazy...or because...yep I'm lazy. :p

You should try Peter Pan Honey Roasted peanut butter...if you're unsure if you like regular peanut butter you may REALLY like that kind. It's my fave.

Now I want funnel cake...that you'll love for sure when you have it!

PS - thank you for sharing your engagement story with me! I loved reading it. I'm so so happy for you and your hubby and how happy he makes you!

I loooove Kings of Convenience. It's the best mellow traveling music. And I don't know whether I like or dislike bubble tea either. It's so intriguing though, I want to like it! The "bubbles" just freak me out sometimes.

interesante y divertido.
Comprate una bici! ;)

I love Ikea, though I've only been there twice. I think they want you to take the pencils, after all, they make them so small.

I never owned a cat but I imagine it's nicer than owning a dog but what do I know anyway?

hope you have a sweet day.

Chrissy said...

Thanks so much for playing along! Love these posts! Happy Wednesday xxx

lisa said...

I'll decide for you- you love peanut butter and like marshmallows & bubble tea, okay? Peanut butter is delicious. :) Sorry for only 1/2 assed playing along last time you tagged me, I really wanted to do it and felt bad but had major brain burnout around the holidays. Dealing with shit at work, finals week at school + holidays took it's toll on me. xoxo

Hi Miki,
I'm really sorry I still couldn't find the time to answer the questions from the last post in which you tagged me :( I know it's no excuse but I'd really want to answer them with time, not just to get rid of them and answer anything...
Have a nice weekend!
