Fill in the Blanks Friday

You know how this works - linking up with Lauren for her Friday questions.


1. People always tell me I look like someone they know. I've been asked too many times to recount whether I had a sister who works at X company, or goes to Y school. I don't know what is is about my face, but apparently, I look like people.

2. Friends don't let friends take pictures where their underwear is showing.  Friend duties 101.

3. A sunny day is perfect for a picnic on the beach (in my dream life where I can actually go outside because I'm independently wealthy, have no career aspirations, and don't feel guilty or unsatisfied by that fact).

4. My favorite accessory is my wide black leather belt that I bought at a vintage store in Florence.  I've had it for about 5 years.  I wear it all the time, and every time, it reminds me of the most beautiful city and that amazing store of trinkets.  Europeans do vintage stores so much better than we do.

5. If I could afford it I would start a school in L.A. like Geoffrey Canada's Harlem Children's Zone.  Have you seen Waiting for Superman yet about the state of the school system in this country?  It's an emotional rollercoaster for sure, but it's not completely depressing.  There is hope, and it's being carried by people like Geoffrey Canada.  We just need more of them.  Go watch!

6. The cure for boredom is ...wait, there's a CURE?!  Where?  How?  Someone please tell me before I die from this horrible affliction induced by hours of Bar/Bri!!!!

7. I am currently "in like" with Santa Monica.  We're only just starting to get to know each other, but so far, I think we're pretty compatible.  I like beaches; SM has beaches.  I like sunshine; SM usually delivers on that one.  Neither one of us likes traffic very much, but SM does its best to make life walkable for me.  But you know, it's just at the beginning, so we're not saying the real "L-word" yet.

I (sadly) do not have a sunset photo for you - fail! - but I do hope you have a wonderful Friday and that you get to see a sunset somewhere, wherever you are!

Hi there! I hopped over here from your fill in the blank link :)

I'm "in like" with Santa Monica too. But I only get to visit on occasion. Boo :(

Lin said...

lmao...I said the same thing for #6! Dude, I love visiting Venice Beach. It's totally hippie status!

Stopping by from Lauren's blog :)

Hey there, Megan and Lin! Thanks for stopping by!

Lin, I'm familiar with the hippie lifestyle, being a native of the SF Bay Area, and a 3-year resident of Berkeley. Nothing surprises me anymore!

Megan, I just moved here to Santa Monica, and I'm getting to know it and like it more everyday, especially on beautiful sunny beach days like today!
