With my homie in Bournemouth

This meme started with Jen, whose blog is always, always worth visiting, and then I found that two of my favorite women (Susannah and Alex) had filled it out and I loved reading their answers so much I decided to do it myself.

a special talent
armed with only a pad of sticky notes and a marker I can help anyone, anywhere identify goals, objectives, inputs, outputs, outcomes and a plan of action for any project they can dream up

a secret nobody knows
i'll happily go for days without a shower if left to my own devices

a personality trait you find attractive

a personality trait you find unattractive

songs that melt you
hope, fat freddy's drop
aotearoa, trinity roots

the biggest truth you have learned this year
the importance of letting go

an item you are currently coveting
a new hard drive for my iBook

what gives you peace
knowing that I did my best

what perfume are you currently wearing
none, but once i shower and get dressed i'll put on Prada

do you dream much
absolutely, but i forget the dreams fast unless i tell someone about them

what word(s) do you tend to say to much
insh'allah, nice

in highschool, what kind of teen were you
fiesty, taking the school board to task over injustices in the classroom

describe yourself in five words
earnest, playful, passionate, overstretched do-gooder

a weird quirk
generally I don't like meat, but i'm totally hooked on beef jerky

have you ever been in love?

has your heart ever been broken?
yes, over the end of love, the suicides of brilliant young people, and the cruelty and injustice in the world.

favorite thing to wear
hoop earrings and MAC plum perfect tinted lip conditioner

    I so enjoyed reading this meme, Frida. You can go days without a shower?! And you are hooked on beef jerky?! Hee! Somehow I can totally envision you taking a school board to task over a classroom injustice. And now look at you – giving diplomatic heck to wrongdoers in Afghanistan! You go, Girl!
    PS – Can, uh, you bring that pad of sticky notes and a marker with you to New York this October? πŸ™‚
