i hope you enjoyed a marvelous weekend. i loved having the buskers in uptown waterloo. did you get out, those of you in this area? i swear half the population of k-w made it to uptown waterloo at some point over the weekend. the crowds were huge!
i discovered yet another all about me set of questions. once again, i found the idea over at gabriela‘s blog. this has got to be, what, the fourth or fifth idea that i have pilfered from une vie saine?! this questionnaire is short and sweet.
FIVE words to describe myself:
~ sweetly quirky
FOUR favourite foods:
~ peanut butter
~ apple crisp
[you will note the glaring absence of coffee and raw vegetables/salads…yup, the flu-induced aversions are still holding…]
THREE things i’m most proud of accomplishing:
~ running a 3:00:45 marathon at the 1998 boston marathon (my pb)
~ graduating from university with a four year honours degree and bachelor of education degree [even though i am no longer use my french or teaching degrees, an education is a wonderful asset and life experience]
~ buying my very first car – a little green mazda 323 with racing stripes! – with funds 100% from my own bank account
TWO favourite workouts:
[the #1 and #2 ranking flipflops depending on my mood and the weather]
ONE thing to expect from my blog:
~ haha, a blog about nothing, to be seinfeldian about it?! the blog started so i could track last year’s 1970 kiki project, and has grown to include writings and musings about things that interest me, and more often than not, bring a smile to my face as i write. i like variety on my blog – i’d get bored writing about the same stuff every day, and you’d fall asleep reading.
now, just so i’m not a complete moocher, i’m going to contribute a sixth question to the original five:
SIX activities you would do with visitors to showcase your city:
~ walk through waterloo park
~ visit the st jacobs farmer’s market
~ go around ring road (by foot, bike or car) at the university of waterloo campus
~ eat gelato at a sidewalk table and people-watch at whole lot-a gelata
~ watch a movie at the princess cinema
#1 spot – touristy or otherwise – that guests to your home should visit? the train ride from uptown waterloo to st jacobs is very popular but i’ve never taken it, so don’t want to suggest it without really knowing if it’s worthwhile or not!
here is your fun and life-enhancing trivia question of the day. i heard this on the radio at the store the other day.
according to forbes magazine, who is the most powerful female celebrity in the world?
answer: lady gaga
would you have guessed that? i would not. i am still stuck in the oprah or madonna eras!
