What’s something you haven’t done yet that you plan to do someday?
I would love to road trip to all 50 states with my friends. We want to do something like the Honda CR-V ad where they drive to all 50 states and take pictures with 50 different state t-shirts. We plan to sell Avon along the way to support ourselves.
Your favorite drink?
Java Chip Frapaccino at Starbucks. My friend once said she wished she could have an IV of java chip frappaccino constantly dripping into her body…I agree.
Favorite local restaurant(s)?
Bombay Cuisine. I love their punjabi…so creamy and delicious! (NOTE: She was real bummed to hear about planned menu changes at the restaurant).
Do you have any tattoos?
I actually just figured out my “dream tattoo”! If I had to get a tattoo, I would have “Isten Hozott” written on the side of my foot. It means “God has brought you here” in Hungarian.
Not right now, but when I lived in Budapest, Hungary for a semester, I volunteered every week at a coffee shop.
What are you reading?
I just started Anna Karenina by Tolstoy. It’s thick, but I’ve always wanted to read it. What better time than the summer?
Most cherished possession?
I’m not sure what it is now, but in high school it was my 1986 yellow Volvo station wagon. I learned to drive a manual with this car and I named her Bertha!
Cream, sugar or both?
Definitely both. I just started drinking coffee last year, so I still need to be coddled with a little sweetener.
Ever snoop in other people’s medicine cabinets?
Haha! Yes! Well, usually if a prescription is just sitting out on the counter I’ll take a peek at it. You can tell a lot about a person from the medicine they take.
Best toppings for an ice cream sundae?
Hot fudge and melted peanut butter. Mmmmm….so good.
