1. What is your favourite magazine to read?
I will reluctantly admit here that I have a deep and flourishing love affair with bridal magazines. The Knot, Martha Stewart Weddings (nobody does bridal like a convicted felon), Modern Bride...it's so shameful to be seen in public with them that I feel obligated to sneak to Barnes and Noble in a trench coat and fedora and pore over the pages with big aviator glasses hiding my sparkly eyes. What's not to love about a magazine that's entirely comprised of ridiculous "problems" like choosing the colour palette that best expresses your personality, or picking napkin rings that unite cultural traditions? On the other hand, the overall message most of the magazines reinforce is one of love. The most important thing is love, sharing love, being around those you love and creating a lifetime of love. Excuse me taking off these aviators to wipe my eyes, but what could be more beautiful than that?
2. What is the best thing you've seen online lately?
I was recently very depressed by an article depicting the disgusting state of the New York City real estate market: http://www.buzzfeed.com/benrosen/6-castles-that-cost-less-than-an-apartment-in-nyc?s=mobile
3. Who is your favourite celebrity to follow on Instagram or Twitter?
Yoko Ono's twitter account is amazing. It reminds me so much of "Grapefruit" and sometimes I have to laugh aloud at how ridiculous it sounds. And yet, there are other times when her crazy advice hits home at just the right moment. I love you, Yoko. Please don't ever change.
4. Is there one article of clothing no matter what season you can't help but love?
Sweatpants are the greatest pants in the world. Everyone thinks leggings are soooo comfortable? Morons! SWEATPANTS are like Snuggies for your Southern Hemisphere. I always try to find ways to justify sweatpants out and about. During the day, I'll catch myself fantasizing about a hot mug of tea and my sweatpants. my sybaritic sweatpants love knows no shame.
5. Do you prefer email or snail mail?
I love getting snail mail! I really love it SO MUCH that I think sometimes I order books on Amazon just to have them delivered to my house and prove that I EXIST IN THE WORLD because some secondhand bookseller knows my name (and my tragic addiction to Robert A. Heinlein). I'm expecting two packages soon: a new cell phone case (mine is starting to eat it) and UNICORN KIGURUMI. Yes, giant footie pajamas complete with good and horn, wings and tail. I bought it as a Halloween costume but now I'm pretty sure it will be my go-to weekend outfit! I really can't wait for it to arrive!
