1. What's your favorite color? Maroon. It's plastered all over my website and my brand, but marketing people tell me to ditch it. It's not "soothing" enough for the product I offer... which is a meditation CD for parents! But I think as parents, we should aspire to be BOLD and CALM at the same time.
2. What's your favorite ice cream? Ben and Jerry's Half Baked. Actually, I'll eat ANY ice cream, or dessert for that matter, which does not contain fruit. Fruit does not belong in my dessert...and especially not lemon, which is the opposite of dessert. If I had to choose and non B&J options were plentiful, I would go for peanut butter fudge.
3. What's your favorite purple? The kind that has a little maroon in it.
4. What's your favorite flower? Passion Flowers and Proteas are tied for first.
5. What is your all time favorite song? The first love song my husband wrote for me. It's called "Words of Affirmation," and it provides just that! He also included the lyrics in a piece of art he designed for our room. "The Luckiest" is my other favorite, by Ben Folds Five. It was our aisle music and whatnot. Sappy, I know.
6. When did you move for the first and last time? I first moved from LA when I went to college at UC Santa Cruz. I fell in love with the Bay Area and have lived here ever since. Last summer, we moved back to the East Bay and we feel right at home.
7. What is your favorite US city to visit? Any city with babysitting is a great place to visit. That makes LA a top choice as grandparents are plentiful.
8. What is the last book you read? The Mama's Boy Myth, by Kate Stone Lombardi. If you think being a mama's boy is a bad thing, think again!
9. Four Square or Tetherball? Tetherball. Duh!
10. Favorite childhood meal? BBQ chicken and quiche. Random combo, but that's what memory serves.
11. OOGIAH means cookie. What is your favorite kind? Does Rugelach count? If not, then Chocolate Chip.
