Tag...I'm it!

I love these little surveys, haha. My sister recently tagged me so here we go!!

_what is your current obsession?_
*nutella - a spoonful here and there, but if I'm making crepes i'll go crazy with it!

_what is your weirdest obsession?_

*i like to imitate my birds when I talk to my sister. "meh meh mehhh!! bep bep!!" lol, crazy we are.

_Starbucks or Peet's?_
*Either one. Every coffee chain seems the same to me, but for sure I prefer 'ca phe sua da' (Vietnamese iced coffee), either home-dripped or from a cafe.

_what's for dinner?
*'thit kho heo voi trung' (Vietnamese braised pork with eggs). one of my favorite dishes! we still have lots of herbs and lettuce, so i'll probably eat it spring roll style. oohhh yeahhhh!

_what would you eat for your last meal?
*my two favorite foods in the whole wide world, noodle soups (bun bo hue, chinese/viet egg noodles, ramen) and pizza!

_what was the last thing you bought?
*a grande iced coffee from charbucks, $1.95. milk, slightly sweetened. it tastes ok, kinda watery, should've asked for some hazelnut. icanhasflavur?

_what are you listening to right now?_
*my window's open, so it's just suburban ambiance; slight breeze, birds chirping, kids playing, planes overhead, dog barking, lawn mowers mowin' (or 'mow lawner' as my sister would say, haha!)

_what is your favorite ice cream flavor?
*i couldn't decide between pistachio and amaretto gelato...but luckily i found THIS awesome combination on flickr!!
*i'm always down for some yogurtland green tea froyo too!

_what do you think of the person(s) who tagged you?_
*who, this girl?? lol. she's my sister. we go through our ups and downs. here's when she made me really mad and i pushed her down the stairs, lol. jk

_if you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
*at this moment, i REALLY REALLY want pizza. so perhaps for the next hour, i'd like to be transported to naples, italy, for some delicious pizza margherita!

_which language do you want to learn?_
*i'd like to be fluent in vietnamese. i'm less capable of conversing than a kindergartner =( [i know, i flunked kindergarten-level vietnamese...but then again, i ditched nearly every class. =|]
*today i checked out a "teach yourself french!" audiobook when i went to pick up some books i had on reserve. so i'll be teachin' myself some french this summer for fun! oui oui!

_what's your favorite quote (for now)?_
*lol, the first thing that popped into my head is a line from "Sweet Home Alabama" with Reese Witherspoon. At the end, she requests a song and says to "make it a slow one," and then freakin' "Sweet Home Alabama," which is an upbeat song, starts playing. My sister and i were wtf'd when we saw that.

_what is your favorite colour?_

_what is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?_
*probably the only cardigan that i own (grey, from express). i like wearing it with a tank top or wife-beater underneath.

_what is your dream job?_
*anything that doesn't take over my life or bores me to death. lets me be creative.

_what is your worst habit?_

_if you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?_
*whas das, like $200? damn, probably spend it on my health insurance bill. haha
*but for something fun...probably a new external hard drive and The Sims 3 (i see you rolling your eyes at me!)

_do you admire any one's style?_
*hmm, sorta-kinda-generally this type
*i really like my sister's look of the day today.

_describe your personal style?_
*broke college-grad. mix of stuff from undergrad/entry-level-workforce-yet-unemployed/hand-me-downs/casual

_what are you going to do after this?_
*work on a slideshow for a family member and homework. but first, dinner!

_what are your favourite movies?
*my sister and i LOVE "Best in Show." Silly parodies like the "Scary Movie" series, comedies such as "Deuce Bigalow" and "White Chicks." Recent ones that I've enjoyed are "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Slumdog Millionaire" was ok. Hmm, drawing up blanks now. Oh yeah, Lifetime movies.
