Getting to Know You

Hello, My Name is Delicious
Hi. My name is Sarah. I eat far too much than is fashionable, eat out far too much than funemployment should allow, and sometimes, I write about things that could get me into big trouble in little China. In fact, I write this blog. Occasionally, I think it’s funny, but usually, it makes me cry hot tears onto my pillow at night.

There’s more information about me, but enough about me, daaahling. Let’s talk about…me.

I entertain this romantic notion in my head that there are, indeed, a few readers of The Delicious Life. Like seven, perhaps eight if it’s a slow day in the corporate world. At least, a few readers beyond the friends and family whom I force to read because I test them on a weekly basis and threaten to sabotage family get-togethers if they don’t pass, and unfortuantely kids, there is no curve.

I want to get to know you, my seven readers. I want us to, you know, have a relationship. So I have come up with a few random questions that I have randomly selected from random sources that you can answer in the comments. Let’s get to know each other. Heck, other readers will get to know each other and it will be like one big delicious orgy. And if it’s your first time here, well, pour yourself a cocktail already, and join the fun! We don’t bite. Unless you want us to.

  1. What do you do as your occupation?
  2. Drink: what and where?
  3. What was the last thing you ate? If it is the same as mine, omg, that is like…freaky. We could be like…twins.
  4. I know you never cheat on me, but let’s just say you were to cheat on me. Which other blogs do you read? (Ha! It was a trick question! I knew it! You cheater!)
  5. How did we first meet? In other words, how did you first find your way here? (Oh, and if you’re one of the ones I paid off, let’s just keep that our little secret, ‘k?)
  6. Do you take baths?
  7. It’s Friday night. The lights are low. You’re lookin’ out for a place to go…where to, rockstar?
  8. French fries or onion rings? (Don’t you love multiple choice?)
  9. Tony Bourdain: hot or not?
  10. Favorite ice cream flavor?

And if there is anything else you would like to share about yourself that might help you in a court of law, rants, raves, and/or well-thought-out opinions about the state of global warming, please, feel free to share.

    I’ve thought about writing a post like this…
    I just can’t stop wondering who in the heck thinks my blog is so durned intersting and why…glad to see I’m not alone…lemme know how it turns out, maybe I’ll pick it up as a reverse meme…

    1. event coordinator–very decent yet boring job; I hate working for the man.
    2. red wine; anywhere. I live in Fort Lauderdale, but grew up in L.A. Your review of A.O.C. made me drool with envy. Must visit my moms in LaLa land more often.
    3. oatmeal with raisins and flax seeds. must start the day off healthy.
    4. amateur gourmet, I was just really very hungry; Bruni digest; seriously good; fresh approach to cooking; megnut; I read tons b/c I have my own blog. Check out my blog roll–you’re on it. Hope you approve:)
    5. Saw your link on epi-log. You’re one of the first food blogs I got into.
    6. no baths; I have a beautifully remodelled condo, but the bathtub is like original to the construction in 1972 or something. It’s just not the most inviting tub.
    7. Friday night–I always go out in order to erase the memory of the work day. Love to have drinks and apps, or dinner on the beach.
    8. French fries only if they are utterly awesome.
    9. Tony Bourdain is sexy-licious.
    10. I’m not really an ice cream person. I like straight up chocolate and cake. But I do love homemade ice cream at fancy restaurants with cool, trendy flavors like lavender honey.

    Thanks for the blog.

    Fun!

    And you obviously have way more than 8 readers.

    1) Grad student at UCLA. Hence why I never ever seem to be working.
    2) Often and anywhere.
    3) A hard-boiled egg for breakfast just now.
    4) Can’t even list them here; I procrastinate a lot and therefore read lots of blogs.
    5) I think via your postings on Chowhound? Via the Rachel Ray blogging event? Not quite sure.
    6) Every once in awhile, but actually, they make me a little queasy. I think it’s because I make the water too hot.
    7) I try to think of new places, but more often than not en up at the Bowery.
    8) BOTH.
    9) Sometimes, I think it depends on what he’s talking about.
    10) Mint chocolate chip from Thrifty’s (is it Rite Aid now?). It’s what I always had when I was little, and still love it. Although now I have my own ice cream maker!

Very creative wordings. By the way, we are practically neighbors. I live in West L.A. and I go to all those places you talk about. Am UCLA grad. Additionally, I too am Korean and your accounts with your Delicious family is hilariously familiar. My sis lives in Fullerton too- hah!I almost feel like a stalker…
    6) Baths only when I can stand it. Mostly showers.
    7) Fri night- usually out with hubby and baby to Santa Monica 3rd Street. Or movie night if I can’t face traffic one more min and order in from Thai Dishes or pick up Chinese from Hop Li on Pico
    8) Fries if yam fries. Otherwise onion rings (if my hubby doesn’t give me a disgusted look). Need to lose some weight here…
    9) Tony is snobbishly fun to watch when he does his travel shows. Sexy? NO!

    Oh my God, I’m exhausted from reading those replies. Here goes…

    1. Development Director for a non-profit charity (read: do-gooder dork).

    2. Coffee (anywhere, anytime including right now) Kick-Ass Margaritas at Marix Tex Mex (WeHo) or Belvedere gibson with a tiny splash of good whisky (http://acmeinstantfood.blogspot.com/2006/05/smoked-martinis.html

    3. A tart, crunchy granny smith apple (my regular desk treat).

    4. Matt Bites, David Lebovitz, La Mia Cucina, Laura Rebecca’s Kitchen, Nordljus, and on and on. I will say that Deep End Dining is a new fascination! I think Homeland Security may be watching them…

    5. Your brilliance shines throughout all of cyberland! We’ve all been blinded and are drawn to you like moths to the light of a million brilliant candles! It is like a cellular memory; we’ve always known about you! **Please e-mail me so that I can give you the address to mail the check**

    6. Do Jacuzzis count? However, no oatmeal in the Jacuzzi please. My next door neighbor is the Quaker Minute Man and he keeps wanting to try that. The Quaker Minute Man is a kinky horn dog.

    7. A) People come to our place B) We meet others at the Abbey (although less now than previously) C) Anywhere they are serving up Mexican food and margaritas!

    8. God gave us two hands so that one could hold onion rings and the other could grab fries. I actually think I was supposed to be born with a third hand that would hold a salt shaker. Sigh.

    9. Tony…not hot, but I respect him.

    10. My cheesecake and my Guiness Stout ice cream recipes ROCK!!! (Completely immodest but true)

    11. I think maybe I was a really poor Italian peasant in a previous life, living on the side of a volcano, picking grapes and drinking wine in the sun, and then passing out in a field somewhere while turkey vultures slowly circled overhead. That’s hot.

    7. It’s Friday night. The lights are low. You’re lookin’ out for a place to go…where to, rockstar?

    Well, I am always ambitious, but also exhausted on Fridays, so if I make it off the couch, it’s usually to someplace in walking distance that features both food and alcohol. Used to be Authentic Cafe like clockwork, but then my bartender left to join the world of high fashion. I will never forgive him.

    4. Too many to name.
    5. I have long since forgotten how I got here.

    Um…you have more than 7 readers. Oh SNAP!

    1. What do you do as your occupation?

    I’m an attorney.

    2. Drink: what and where?

    Martinis at Beechwood or Paulaner’s Hefeweizen at the Other Room.

    3. What was the last thing you ate? If it is the same as mine, omg, that is like…freaky. We could be like…twins.

    Bacon Wrapped hot dogs with peppers and onions on top from the farmer’s market in Century city. Washed down with Mango Aguas Frescas. Lunch of champions.

    4. I know you never cheat on me, but let’s just say you were to cheat on me. Which other blogs do you read? (Ha! It was a trick question! I knew it! You cheater!)

    I read a lot of wine blogs (Vinography, NYT) and Slashfood. I haven’t found any other food blogs that appeal to me…yet.

    5. How did we first meet? In other words, how did you first find your way here? (Oh, and if you’re one of the ones I paid off, let’s just keep that our little secret, ‘k?)

    8. French fries or onion rings? (Don’t you love multiple choice?)

    Onion rings if they’re well made. Unfortunately, onion rings are ruined much more frequently than French Fries, so Fries if I’m unsure.

    9. Tony Bourdain: hot or not?

    I don’t have food network….a sin amongst food-lovers? Then I’m a sinner.

    10. Favorite ice cream flavor?

    Protein Shakes in the morning. In the kitchen. While I eye that tub of cream cheese and slab of bacon in the fridge.

    I think from a blog of a blog of a blog.

    6. Do you take baths?
    No; but I like to take candy from little kids. Especially the ones strapped into their strollers.

    I’m pretty easy to please. Grey Goose and tonic, almost anywhere, or the house margaritas (rocks, no salt) at Tiger Lily in Los Feliz.

    What was the last thing you ate? If it is the same as mine, omg, that is like…freaky. We could be like…twins.
    I had some Trader Joe’s Papadums chips (they’re new I think). Spicy, crispy, and not full of fat. They are my new favorite snack.

    I know you never cheat on me, but let’s just say you were to cheat on me. Which other blogs do you read? (Ha! It was a trick question! I knew it! You cheater!)
    Well, I read “Tuna Toast,” but she’s my twin sis so I kinda have to! Love “The Girl Who Ate Everything,” “Becks & Posh,” “Pimp That Snack,” “Part-time Pro Bono Baker,” and, non-food-related: “Pink is the New Blog.”

    How did we first meet? In other words, how did you first find your way here? (Oh, and if you’re one of the ones I paid off, let’s just keep that our little secret, ‘k?)
    I think my sister sent me the link.

    Do you take baths?
    Yes, but I haven’t had a bathtub for nearly four years. So I gotta go soak at the spa.

    It’s Friday night. The lights are low. You’re lookin’ out for a place to go…where to, rockstar?
    Hm…sometimes to Malo, for some chips and habanero creme salsa and margs; sometimes to Tiger Lily to split some small plates with gal pals; sometimes to Old Town Pasadena to walk around and pick a new place to eat/drink; sometimes to my patio with a glass of wine.

    French fries or onion rings? (Don’t you love multiple choice?)
    Give me cripsy, crunchy onion rings ANY day.

    2. I don’t really have a regular drink but I’ll take a Ketel One Martini with a twist or Tanqueray and Tonic almost anytime; good red wine with steak; champagne with sushi; beer with barbecue.

    3. Lemon Blueberry Old-Fashioned Donut.

    4. Saute Wednesday, Michael Bauer, Frank Bruni, Eric Asimov, WhiteTrashBBQ. But I always read yours first.

    5. I actually don’t recall. It might have been a link from Deep End Dining or Professor Salt’s.

    6. Maybe once every few months.

    7. Maybe Zucca for drinks with former co-workers or 25 Degrees for a burger and cocktails or a good sushi bar.

    8. 1/2 and 1/2 please.

    9. Not hot.

    10. Ortman’s Lemon Custard. I don’t even know if they make it anymore. The store on Solano is long gone and the deli where they used to carry it is gone too.

  • Kevin

    1. What do you do as your occupation?

    I pretend that I know what I’m doing.

    2. Drink: what and where?

    It USED to be the Dr. Pepper thing at Luna Park, but the bastards took it off the menu without even consulting me. It came with Dr. Pepper Jelly Bellys, and you mixed it yourself. RAR! However, my fallback standby drink has always been a GOOD dirty martini. I’m digging the “Hot & Dirty” Martini that The Well has, lately.

    3. What was the last thing you ate? If it is the same as mine, omg, that is like…freaky. We could be like…twins.

    A bowl of Grape Nuts cereal. And there were neither grapes nor nuts in there. Liars.

    4. I know you never cheat on me, but let’s just say you were to cheat on me. Which other blogs do you read? (Ha! It was a trick question! I knew it! You cheater!)

    There are other blogs out there??!!

    5. How did we first meet? In other words, how did you first find your way here? (Oh, and if you’re one of the ones I paid off, let’s just keep that our little secret, ‘k?)

    You hired me through the escort service, remember?

    6. Do you take baths?

    Hell yes, wherever I can find them.

    7. It’s Friday night. The lights are low. You’re lookin’ out for a place to go…where to, rockstar?

    This is a tough one. In my old hood, in YOUR favorite place (the Valley with a capital V) it was The Chimneysweep! A bar where everbody knows your name. Now it’s the Little Bar, near mi casa. Same vibe, with nicer bathrooms. Either that, or partying with my friends at random locations around town. Sometimes I meet random foodblogger women for champagne and sushi. Bizarre.

    8. French fries or onion rings? (Don’t you love multiple choice?)

    Fries usually, although I’ve been known to go for a well made ring or two. Just don’t kiss me afterwards.

    9. Tony Bourdain: hot or not?

    I have no idea who this is, so I’m saying “not”.

    10. Favorite ice cream flavor?

    French Vanilla or Peanut Butter.

    1. Grad student/research assistant. Which means I spend most of my occupational time patiently battling all the foilbles that interfere with getting any actual research done.

    2. Cerveza Pacifico Clara with limes (on my front porch); Stoli Orange with soda and lime or Patron Anejo neat (at most bars); vino at dinner; bubbles all other times. Except when I’m drinking Lone Star.

    3. Baked potato with broccoli, green peas, sriracha, black pepper and reggiano parmigiano. Yes, grad student budget, but you can forget about ramen noodles.

    4. Stickyrice, Waiter rant, Mimi in NY, Cork and Demon, the Wine Offensive, Dooce, Real Climate/Climate Science.

    5. Can’t remember how we met, it was so long ago. What, you mean YOU don’t remember either?

    6. When I happen upon a bathtub, yes.

    7. In my living room, listening to old deep funk and soul on the college station, under the influence of…, dancing in my stocking feet. Or going to see live rock and roll. If there ain’t a cool show in town, it’s down to the rack room for the pool tables and heavy metal jukebox.

    8. Frings.

    9. Well, not hot, but not “not” either. I think his attitude is hot, but would I do him? who’s to say. what’s for dinner?

    10. True Mexican Vanilla.

    Call it “global climate change”. While we have documented an increase in atmospheric/oceanic CO2 levels and increased sea surface temperatures over the last 20 years, there’s no real irrefutable way of quantifying the resultant impacts as “global warming”. Love your blog. Hope you win.

  • The Overworked Barista

    1. Occupation – Professional Dunce…er…I mean unemployed, but still an ex-barista at everyone’s favorite Coffee equivalent of Donald Trump (and trying to return). Also attempting to create own cafe.

    2. Granville Island Honey Pale Ale – On a low-lit back porch somewhere where I can see the stars.

    3. MY HAND. No…really, lessee a whole wheat flatbread loaded with a veggie tuna salad and lots and lots of crispy redleaf. (Must lose those freshman…er..30. ^^ I want abs Dangit!)

    4. I’m sorry to betray you, truly I am…Nordjlus because it’s so dang pretty, but I like the stylings of Everbody Likes Sandwiches, Bunnyfood, Desert First, and the Canadian Baker.
    They make me feel as though someday I may not burn everything I bake.

    5. Slashfood linked you for your first bibihm bahp article from 2005, then I e-mailed you for the follow up link recently and you actually responded. Tasted great by the way (I used Ginger Ale in my bulgogi)

    6. I Am a guy…so, not as much, but once in a blue moon, and maybe soon I will.

    7. Wherever food is hard to pronounce, and only if my fellow travellers can succumb to my adventurous ways.

    8. French Fries with skins, and malt vinegar.

    9. I respect Anthony, let’s leave it at that.

    10. Latte (or Cappaccino, it varies on the place/tub) =D

    Anything else? Well…I recently became a food addict, I blame boredom and the insatiable urge to make a good scone, but it seems to be here to stay. To satiate my nagging monkey I have been trying to make lots of my store bought favorites the rough and tough way (scratch). Even further, I have taken pictures in an attempt to prepare myself for foodblogging, but haven’t had an oppurtunity to start one yet. That and in all honesty I tend to fail a lot more than I succeed. (the sadness) So it is becoming the basis of a new blog called “Not a Foodie: Charcoal is our Friend”

    That and my flailingly dying diet seem to want to rebel. In fact I think male food bloggers are even more self-concious about their weight than women. Something I will soon prove.

    1. Speechwriter and general corporate drudge. 2. Drank up my quota 20 years ago, now a connoisseur of mineral water. 3. Chicken with ginger and scallions, prepared by my Thai-born wife. Aroy dee! 4. “L.A. Observed” is a daily must. The only other blog I visit that pays much attention to food is “Franklin Avenue.” 5. Not sure. I think maybe it was “L.A. Blogs,” where I was checking out blogs more or less at random. The name “Delicious Life” intrigued me, then the writing and photography knocked me out. 6. Who has time? That’s why showers were invented. 7. Our favorite is Chao Krung, on Fairfax near Beverly. Try the Salmon Penang. Also the charbroiled Portobello Salad. Top-notch Thai food, pretty surroundings, a friendly staff in traditional Thai costume. 8. Sorry, but my cardiologist frowns on both. *sigh* 9. Who is he? 10. It’s really vanilla, but my cardiologist would make me say something like “lemon sorbet.” I tell him, “What the hell is Lipitor for?”

    That’s funny, I thought the DL was all about everything Delicious??? Oh well, then

    lucky #13: Briefs, CC’s , forget boxers, thongs?…ewww! How about you Sarah, bloomies, classic skinny low rise bikini style panties; or current craze BUTT floss (aka thong panties)? I hate butt floss, everytime I see some women bend over at the farmers market, I just want to ‘wedgy’ them. Well except, thongs already are ‘wedgied out’…argh, I hate those things, not sexy at all.

    In more delicious news, Mousse Fantasy is now a limited operation in the same location, mostly sharing space with a new Beard Pappa’s. Hunky, quite spoken Korean guy there Sarah (real Korean though, speaks fluent English), sort of like Daniel Dae Kim (TV’s coverboy, 12 sexiest TV men). I walked by the store yesterday as the rather heavy set (“Kris”?) woman in charge of the Beard Pappa’s operation was giving out free samples to workers in the mini strip mall there on Sawtelle. Guy bites into one of these cream puffs, and it drools liquid center onto the parking lot…what a mess, lets hope they do better today on offical opening day Saturday July 1, 2006; cause that was definitely not a delicious cream puff (Mousse Fantasy’s old-fashion styled, hmm, I wonder if Junko will still make them for me?, cream puffs were far superior, like the way they used to make them at the pastry shop in Hawaii when my mother was a child).

    More Delicious later ;)…ah I don’t think you want to have me go into global warming, lol

    l.a.c.

    PS for Sarah, if you manage to get up before the Sunday SMFM is sold out of them Wiess Fam. Farms will have ollallieberries. Grown in the Tehachipi Mtn’s were they are wild (so he says), these are the best I’ve tasted of FM berries…but as always, it changes from day to day so taste/sample before you buy (not counting Persian mulberries when they are spot on ripe, Tenerelli’s I bought last wk at the Sun HlyFM, were smaller than the week before and many were tasting a bit overripe with ‘rasiny’ flavors :( ).

  • Roland

    1. What do you do as your occupation?
    Full time student at a community college in Torrance, transferring to UCLA or UCI in fall of 07
    2. Drink: what and where?
    Don’t drink, I’m something of a teetotaler. (see straight edge)Not because I have anything against alcohol, I just think the smell and taste is bleeeeeeh. My drink of choice however is sparkling apple cider. That is my idea of the high life.
    3. What was the last thing you ate?
    Last thing I ate was zaru soba at my favorite local Japanese restaurant.
    4. I know you never cheat on me, but let’s just say you were to cheat on me. Which other blogs do you read? I keep a livejournal and read some of the communities there, most of them focusing on photography.
    5. How did we first meet? In other words, how did you first find your way here?
    I first found your blog when searching for pho reviews in the west side/ south bay area.
    6. Do you take baths?
    Yes I do, I even have one of those bath pillows you can use.
    7. It’s Friday night. The lights are low. You’re lookin’ out for a place to go…where to, rockstar?
    Most of the time to a movie, or to a local show to a band. I also frequent the Westside and skateboard with some of the guys from 9star, on Olympic and Sepulveda if you know the place.
    8. French fries or onion rings? (Don’t you love multiple choice?)
    French fries all the way, onion rings only in moderation :)
    9. Tony Bourdain: hot or not?
    Well I am a man, but his wit alone is hot.
    10. Favorite ice cream flavor?
    I’m a mint chip kind of guy, or rainbow sherbet although I know its not really “ice cream.”

    By the way, I love reading this blog and just wanted to say you do a fabulous job with it. So keep up the good work! Also, I didn’t really feel like any of these questions really let you know who might be reading this thing, so just wanted to give you basics. So as to understand your audience maybe a little more haha
    I’m Roland[thats my face anyway]. I’m 19 and am just finishing up my first year of college. I grew up in Torrance and Gardena and while I’m very Caucasian (Scottish and Russian), my father did artwork (sculptor) for quite a few of Japans city halls. Thus I grew up eating Japanese food, seeing Japanese culture surround me, and as a result I’m more Japanese than a lot of my Japanese friends. In my spare time I play guitar (classical nylon as well as run of the mill teenage electric), and skateboard and bodyboard as well. Well, I hope this has all been enough information, and not too much. Just didn’t want to be another name, and still quite anonymous.

    Hi Sarah! I’ve been reading your blog off and on for the last year or so and it’s so entertaining! I live around West LA and so your posts are very topical for me, as they are usually around my neighborhood thereabouts…

    1. I’m a personal assistant.
    2. I usually drink water, but Guinness or Newcastle wherever I’m out and about and have to drink something not-water.
    3. The last thing I ate was Strawberries in Balsamic Vinegar for lunch. The heat is so much that tarty fruit sounded really, really good. I did give the mint-chocolate chip in the freezer the eye, though.
    4. A la Cuisine, 101 Cookbooks, Moveable Feast. Does chowhound count?
    5. Part of me wants to say that I found you through “Good Food” and part of me wants to say that I found you through a link from another blog. Really though, I find you through my “Favorite Bookmarks”.
    6. I am a shower girl.
    7. I’m either working, or going out.
    8. Neither, I’m saving my fat allowance for foie gras. :)
    9. Tony Bourdain is intellectually hot. Physically is another matter entirely.
    10. Why, My favorite ice cream flavor is Mint-Chocolate Chip!

    3. The last thing I ate was nutella on a spoon. From the jar.

    4. Wayyyy too many to list.

    5. I can’t remember the details of our first meeting. I may have been inebriated or on a sugar high.

    6. Of course I take baths.

    7. Dinner and drinks with friends at our favourite watering holes.

    8. French Fries

    9. Tony Bourdain: hot AND not. But mostly hot.

    Dear Sarah,
    this feels like the opening of a love letter but is going to be reduced (have no fear!) to a string of words. Your blog has made me laugh, salivate, giggle and gasp. If you are ever in the mood for having lunch with a stanger (read, a woman, married, about to turn 30, with a penchant for food), I would love to invite you.
    1. Lawyer (from the responses before me, there must be plenty of slackers like me … who read food blogs instead of billing hours).

    2.Gin and tonics, mochitos, champagne. Bars seem to be a part of my NYC past. Now I drink in restaurants.

    3.Salad of organic greens, juicy tomatoes from the farmer’s market, smoked tofu and toasted almonds.

    4. Many, but my daily reads include Chocolate & Zucchini, Words to Eat by, The Girl Who Ate Everything and The Traveler’s Lunch Box.

    5.Eating LA link.

    6. I like baths but they are so much more fun when not alone.

    7. Trying a new restaurant. When at a loss, the Terried Sake House.

    8. Neither.

    9. Let’s see, tall, lanky, food obssessed and at least somewhat witty, hot, hot, hot.

    guess who I am, apart from the 99th person to reply…?

    1) Currently Funemployed just like you.
    2) Champagne until I got laid off. Now Prosecco instead.
    3) a really bland mozzarella tomato salad topped with some tasty grilled shrimps. [not made by me, of course, it would have been 100% delicious if I had made it.]
    4) My own food blog.
    5) I thought you were going to pay me, but i didn’t receive the check yet.
    6) I used to every day, now I have to put up with the showers instead.
    7) That would give away my identity, so shhh!
    8) Fries for want of anything better.
    9) Hot, surely.
    10) I am not too big on ice cream, but I really like caramel.

    PS so my dear virtual friend, guessed who I am yet? Email me with your answer :]

You are SOOO my long lost rad Asian Sista…!

    un: Young Professor (Age-ism is indeed, a BITCH), thank goodness for sassy-aggressive-asian-chicks-with-great-shoes-and-smiles!!

    deux: Sapphire Martini, two olives…not one, not three, but TWO!! Where? *sigh* Used to be at ATLAS (RIP), now known as Opus. The Abbey is a close second, in LA at least.

    trois: mmmm…Mama brought us over a big pot of homemade PHO. Nicely sliced thin sirloin, shrimp, fresh rice noodles, garnished with bean sprouts, thai basil, scallions, with Sirarcha and Hoisin Dipping Sauce. Don’t forget the pinch of lime too! Coffee jello for dessert (Sooo Vietnamese)…yumm…It’s 1pm and I haven’t eaten today yet. Swamped with stuff, but I always have time for you!!

    quatre: TOO many now!!! I’ve gone from No Blogs (None, Zip, Nada) to a straight up (now tell me…) Blogging whore…Never anything in Moderation…GO HARD OR GO HOME!!!

    cinq: It was love at first site…Your pictures, your words…I met a few months ago while reading a blog on Epicurious.

    six: OF COURSE. (Que scene) Clawfoot tub, bathroom filled with candles, tons of bubbles, Champagne or Wine and someone you love…or just a nice book. It feels good to feel soo damn sexy, no?

    sept: Cocktails, music and a nice casual dinner. Where else? Upstairs on our rooftop Patio with Friends. I don’t teach on Fridays (yay!). When we’re feeling extra fun, maybe explore a new bar and restaurant or go see a show…

    huit: Uh…easy one, BOTH! I’m partial to beer batter onion rings though!

    neuf: OH SO HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT, did I say HOT? Not in a Tyler Hot, in a TONY HOT!

    dix: I think I’m getting old…I used to love mango sorbet and pumpkin pie ice cream, but now it’s all French Vanilla with Pears and Gummy Bears (don’t ask me where I got that, I ALWAYS have it with Pears, and I don’t know why!!!) Gummy Bears tops every flavor…it’s equal opportunity you know.

    THANK GAWD French Ten Years (gasp!) ago in High School paid off. But then again, I only know how to count to ten.

    Most likely by clicking through various links off of Slashfood but maybe it was destiny :-P

    6) Do you take baths?
    Yes, I find them a valuable way to relax in my overhyped, overstressed life.

    7) It’s Friday night. The lights are low. You’re lookin’ out for a place to go…where to, rockstar?
    This little bar called Apotheke… Scaninavian Modern with North European food (raclette anyone?) and alcohol that only comes served straight up. No mixers, nothing to get in the way.

    8) French fries or onion rings?
    French fries… onions make me feel all gooky.

    9) Tony Bourdain: hot or not?
    Hot. Not in the overtly physical attractivness… but his overall appeal…

    4. I know you never cheat on me, but let’s just say you were to cheat on me. Which other blogs do you read? Come on now, you’re the only food blog in my eyes!

    5. How did we first meet? In other words, how did you first find your way here?
    Google search for reviews on restaurants after I moved to Westwood and your site kept showing up. Kind of like an annoying gnat, but without the annoying part… or the gnat part… but you get the idea.

    6. Do you take baths?
    I tried plugging the drain on my shower, but the water kept leaking out the sides. :(

    7. It’s Friday night. The lights are low. You’re lookin’ out for a place to go…where to, rockstar?
    Whatever the friends are up to, but lately it’s been school… the cover charge is horrible and the bar selection is weak.

    8. French fries or onion rings? (Don’t you love multiple choice?)
    Sweet potato fries with honey and cinnamon.

    9. Tony Bourdain: hot or not?
    Never watched his show…

    10. Favorite ice cream flavor?
    Rum raisin if they have it, but usually I go non-dairy and that’d be Peanut Butter Zig Zag from Soy Delicious (you should hit them up for an endorsement! ;)

    Wow, 115 is a lot more than 7… I’ll add my list despite my being belated.

    1) Med student
    2) Tea on the Bosphorus
    3) I just had a bowl of neoguri followed by two very sugary white chocolate/macadamia nut cookies
    4) Other blogs, hmm… arstechnica.com, gizmodo.com, macrumors.com
    5) I think it was via slashfood via thefreshloaf.com, last October or so
    6) I used to have an apartment with a jacuzzi. I miss those days.
    7) Montana’s for a mile-high mud pie
    8) Fries
    9) I’ve never seen a pic…
    10) It would have to be vanilla served with red bean on the side

    Hah, see, people DO read this!

    My answers:
    1) Mortgage monkey (underwriter/processor)

    2) Drink: Out of house: old fashioned, if the bartender has a clue. Otherwise a beer or a bourbon & ginger ale. Preferably Knob Creek. Home: red wine, most always.

    3) several garlic-stuffed olives (addiction? probably)

    4) Many, many, many.

    5) I was on a food-blog-reading kick and yours was one of three that stuck

    6) I used to take baths but my bathtub has been taken over by a small bossy person who claims I’m her mother *grin*

    7)See above, no rockstar here. Usually I hit the neighborhood bar for a drink or two with the girls…

    8) french fries. to my husband’s despair

    9) Love the writing, but not my type of guy, guy-wise

    10) Peppermint!
