The hundred-and-thirty-ninth day...It's hot outside, but it's lovely in here - oh, and questions are getting answered too :)

Tuesday, August 11, 2009
The questions have been asked :) So what did inquiring minds want to know?

From Fidgeting Gidget…

1. Since your blog is all about pictures, what is your favorite picture that you've ever taken?
My favorite pictures tend to change with my mood, but there are two that I'm very partial to.

First, a view of the city streets that was taken from the Empire State Building Observation Deck. I just love how the streets look like a maze. This is pretty much how I think of NYC - a maze of streets, people, buildings, and yellow cabs.

Second, is a picture that I took of Jeff Goldblum the first time I was lucky enough to meet him. My legs were shaking so bad that I'm surprised the picture came out so clear :)

Both of the above pictures were taken on the day when my man took me to see Mr. Goldblum in The Pillowman. The play and city exploration day were my graduation gifts from him, and I loved 'em!

2. Are you or have you ever posted a pic of yourself on here? If so, I think I missed it.
To date, I’ve never posted a picture of myself – at least not one where my face is seen. I may post one in the future, but that time has not yet come :)

3. Tell us more about your man. How'd you meet? What's he like?
Well...My man and I met in high school :) We actually said hi to each other a couple of times during our freshman year, but didn’t really talk to each other until sophomore year – he was the cute, sweet guy who always took the time to talk to the girl with her head in a book. We lost touch junior year, and met up again at the senior year Halloween dance he came as Puff Daddy (which meant that he was dressed to kill in an amazing suit), and I was dressed completely out of character as a black widow queen (fishnets, high heels, dramatic makeup, and a slinky black dress, etc). I saw his from across the room, he singled me out and asked me if I’d like something to drink…it was all very cute and I loved it! Through the long distance thing during college and law school, we’ve been in love and together ever since.

What’s he like? Well, he’s a cute, funny, sexy, video game fanatic who gets my jokes (he even waits patiently for me to finish laughing at my own hilarity – as I often do). He gets my friends (we are a crazy bunch) and my movie addiction (seriously, he counted it out and, all told, we saw like 120 movies last year – or something). He is fiercely loving, loyal, respectful and protective, and he always makes me feel sexy, loved, safe, and happy. He’s a family man, and I know that he’ll be a wonderful hubby and father some day. He’s my soul mate – nothing plain and simple about it, but lots of things that are awesome and wonderful about it. I knew it back in our senior year of high school. I knew it when my family drove over to his house at like 3 in the morning on the day when I had to move to Boston for college and our moms watched and gushed about how cute we were as we just stood there hugging and saying how much we were going to miss each other in the month before I’d be home again; and I feel it and know it more each and every day. Well, that was a bit mushy gushy :)

From Lee…

1. Do you have a Mac?
No, I use a PC. My poor Toshiba is a little sick, so I’ve been mainly using the family HP.

2. How many songs are on your mp3 player? If you have one.
I have about 200 songs. I don't really download much music, and am currently too lazy to transfer the rest of my cd's to my computer.

3. What kind of camera do you use?
I mainly use a Fujifilm FinePix J10; but I also have a Fujifilm Finepix S1000fd that I use every so often. On the odd days that I forget my camera at home (gasp!), or the battery dies, etc. I usually use the camera on my phone (a Samsung Gravity).

4. What do you do for a living?
I work for an entertainment union. I work with producers, etc to obtain and review all of their paperwork and chain-of-title to make sure that everything is in order, and get them to the point where they are able to use performers from our membership in their films.

From Badass…

I feel like I've seen this done somewhere before... =)
I don’t know what you mean :)

1. Are you left or right-handed?
I am a righty, though I used to (still do actually) wish that I was ambidextrous.

From Moonjava…

1. I've always been a little curious about the dayjobs of my blogger buddies. What do you do currently (career, etc)? And do you love what you do?
Well, as I said above I work for an entertainment union. It can be challenging, and it often is, and while I don’t love what I do right now - due to a mix of work stress and job environment stress – I do really like it. I’ve been working there for a little over two years now, and hope to be there for many more.

Now, what would I really love to do as a career? I would want to be a psychologist (specializing in international psychology). I’m actually going back to school, p/t, to get my M.A. degree in this so we’ll see :)

From Optimistic Pessimist...

1. Wine or beer? Why?
Beer. I've never been a fan of wine - maybe I just haven't found the one for me - but I do enjoy a nice cold one every now and then.

2. What's one of your favorite things about NYC? Least favorite?
One of my favorite things has to be the diversity. The city houses so many different kinds of people, food, cultures, clothes, etc.; it's great. It's exciting to know that I have a seemingly unlimited set of possibilities and experiences so close by.

One of my least favorite is the grime. The city can be a dirty, smelly, disgusting place - especially on hot and humid summer days.

3. Are you going to come watch me run the NYC marathon?
I would love to see some of the marathon live. I've only ever caught it in bits and pieces on TV. I just may come and join the ranks of people cheering you on :)

4. You are in NYC right, if not...why do i think you are?
I live in Queens, but I do work in NYC :)

Thus ends today's question and answer period. That was fun - feel free to ask me more questions anytime :)

Fidgeting Gidget

Wow, I kinda asked a lot of questions that required a lot of writing on your part, but you answered them beautifully. I feel like I know you so much better now! Thanks for sharing!!

PS: Gushing about your man was really sweet. I can tell how much you love him, and that's very nice to read about. :)

Hey FG :) Thanks! I do tend to get mushy when I talk about him :)

Hey Optimistic :) Thanks!

Have an excellent day!


Thanks for answering my questions. :]

I can't believe that you only have about 200 songs. :O D;
So little! I think I'd be a very depressed person with only 200 songs. :( Music is just a huge part of my life.

But I guess if you chose your songs wisely, that's cool too.

Thanks again. :D

for the love of pictures

Hey Lee :) Thanks for asking them :)

I would have more but I haven't put them all on my computer yet. I have a lot of my favorites on there now though, so it's cool for now :)

Have a great night!
