    I shall answer these as I wait in the airport.

    Can't wait to see you manana!

  3. Ok apparently we are cut from the same tribal-sequin-sweatpants wearing cloth:
    - Leo (think we talked about that already)
    -I too believe I've lived previous lives and my most recent was a big curly haired disco queen at studio 54, think Bianca Jagger meets Donna Summers (this would explain my obsession with sequin and 70's music)
    - Omg I have a heart birthmark on my right temple! I assure you this made me non the sweeter
    - I was in marketing woot woot (it's the Leo in us)
    - Gah is it totally terrible that while working I just wanted to be a housewife?!?! I dreamed of waking up at 11am, going to yoga on the beach, and cooking deelish meals! Then I got preggo...
    - I am known to stop random good smelling strangers and ask them what their laundry detergent is (totally embarrassing but necessary)
    - Never. Ever. Brush my hair. Clumps fall out in the shower since that's the only time I run my hands thru my hair. I could have created a whole family of Cousin Its by now
    - I dream of all the cute flowy tops I could be wearing but can't since my giant boobs would make me look preggo! Don't even get me started on bandeau tops!
    - my poor blog is gonna file a case against me to the blog protection services for the amount of neglect it has endured. Sad face
