A butter chicken Indian frozen lunch from Trader Joe’s.

    10. Do you read a lot, if so what are your top three favorite books? Yes, so this is very hard for me to narrow down and I can only think of two.

I like to read non-fiction and biographies, a lot!

    1. How has your week been so far? Rather Boring. School starts monday but I’m already back on campus, and it’s rather lonely. None of my friends or roommates are here. I’m also avoiding doing research and writing a paper.

    2. What’s for lunch? I had pasta with Pesto sauce. Also, I love the frozen Indian food meals from TJs. There aren’t any Trader Joe’s near me at school, but if there were my freezer would be full of Trader Joes’ Chicken Tikki Masala.

    3. What’s on your tips at the moment? China Glaze Rodeo Diva. My first time wearing it and I love it.

    4. Would you rather eat 10 tarantulas or eat 10 giant cockroaches? Neither sounds good…. cockroaches if I had to pick.

    5. Have you ever been hospitalized? I had foot/ankle surgery in May, and I was in the hospital for about 2-3 days. I should have gone home after one night but there was some issues with my pain medication.

    6. Do you still talk to your childhood best friend? It hasn’t been that long since I was a child, considering I’m only 20. But I have a group of friends that has been friends since the 4th grade. I still talk and see them when I can, even though they are in California and I’m in Michigan.

    7. What’s your favorite non-beauty blog? Jezebel

    8. Do you ski? No. I grew up near the beach so I rarely saw snow. Now, I probably wouldn’t because I don’t want to get hurt.

    9. If you could only eat one dish for the rest of your life, what would it be? Thai Fried Rice

    10. Do you read a lot, if so what are your top three favorite books? I read a TON. I have so many favorites but some near the top are Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy, and the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Just one more, Here Be Dragons by Sharon Kay Penman and the rest of the Welsh Princes Trilogy. Thats what I’m reading right now.

    4. Would you rather eat 10 tarantulas or eat 10 giant cockroaches? Cockroaches cause they’d be crunchy. Tarantulas would be furry and stick in your throat…. and I can’t believe I had a logical response to this question…

    6. Do you still talk to your childhood best friend? Nope, lost touch with most everyone from school.

    Kate & Zena

    1. How has your week been so far?
    Tiring. I have to pick my spring term classes and the damn guidance office secretary wouldn’t allow me to make an appointment with my counselor. She said it was done on a “drop in basis.” I don’t think the lady understands how much I A) hate waiting and B) find crowds overstimulating. Being Autistic and having that many people waiting (all having their own conversations and clogging the guidance office hallway) is a nightmare.

    2. What’s for lunch?
    Well, for dinner I had spaghetti, corn and biscuits. Yum.

    3. What’s on your tips at the moment?
    China Glaze Emerald Sparkle. Three days later and I’ve picked off one fingernail of polish and I have some major tipwear. Pretty, yes, but high maintenance.

    4. Would you rather eat 10 tarantulas or eat 10 giant cockroaches?
    I’d rather have a Grand Mal seizure than eat either of those. Did I mention I get hospitalized and have an immediate EKG if I have a Grand Mal because I’m Epileptic? Then I have to stay up all night and be sleep deprived for my EEG. I hate EEGs. I hate having all those probes stuck on my head.

    5. Have you ever been hospitalized?
    Hospitalized, as in, staying overnight? Three times. When I was born, I would have been released the same time as my mom (7 days after birth in West Germany) but I was born blue, then I had a case of infantile jaundice and then I got infantile conjunctivitis so I was there for nine days in an incubator with UV rays instead of seven. Then, I was hospitalized for ten days because I had this weird unexplainable heart arrhythmia that magically went poof! one day and then I spent about two weeks in Pediatric ICU after my hip surgery when I was four. I’ve been to the ER more times than I can actually count. I was a very sick little girl as a child. Still am, actually.

    6. Do you still talk to your childhood best friend?
    I’ve had about three of those and they all ended horribly. Does that answer your question?

    7. What’s your favorite non-beauty blog?
    PetSugar and CasaSugar

    8. Do you ski?
    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, no. My dad did in Colorado though. I’m far too clumsy for skis.

    9. If you could only eat one dish for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    Pasta.

    10. Do you read a lot, if so what are your top three favorite books?
    Yes, all the time. If I had to pick favorites (I have so many), I’d say The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Uglies Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld (the 4th stunk, honestly) and His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. I read so much I don’t have favorites though. The ones above are those I’ve read at least three times, which is rare for me.

    Hi Kelly!

    Because you ask (and I’m always willing to talk about the Outlander series), I have read them all. Numbers 1, 2, and 5 were my favorites. I can see why people don’t like the later books, because there isn’t that much action going on, just alot of daily life stuff. But then, I really loved all those bits. My least favorite was actually the newest book. I was very dissapointed. But I’ll still read the next one when it gets published in probably several years from now.
