Getting to know you

You know those days (months) where you are just scared of the future?

That’s totally not me. I cannot wait for it. I am super-duper bad at taking things as they go, I’m impatient to the max. Thus I created a Facebook for Little Cookbook a few days ago, I’d love to get to know the people who read my blog and if you live close I’d be happy to chat about baking you a cake; to be honest I’ll probably just bring you one regardless.

In my mind this seems all very rushed and slow at the same time. But I’m not sure what I want to do when I finish university in THREE? months so this might help.

I also got an amazing surprise in my inbox a few nights ago from Faraaz and Aneesa, they lovingly awarded me with the Liebster award; which is an award for blogs with under 200 followers. As part of that award they set a few questions that I have to answer, which I’ll do right now.

  1. Favourite book to film adaptation?
    Alice in Wonderland was my favourite book as a child (which you can read about here) and the Disney adaptation was my favourite film, I know that it isn’t wholly true to the book but the extent to which I loved them both seemed to trump that.
  2. What was your first job?
    My first job was in Scotland at a place called the Sandancer; I’m fairly sure it was illegal, I cooked the fast food, served ice cream and drinks, manned the counter and took the money on my own. At 14. Scotland get on to your child labour laws.
  3. Who is your favourite author?
    Audrey Niffenegger or Iain Banks.
  4. If you could travel anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would you go? Why?
    North Korea. I want to experience a place that is wholly unlike the way I live. I’m totes aware of how strange a place that is to want to go. But there you are!
  5. What’s the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?
    Hair. Always. No question about it.
  6. What accomplishment are you most proud of?
    Mastering buttercream.
  7. If you had to live in a decade other than the current one, which would you choose?
    The 20s, the era of opulence and great loss.
  8. Eating in a theater nefarious behaviour or perfectly acceptable?
    I do it, it’s totally cool. I’m more of a Malteaser lover than popcorn
  9. Sailboat or cruise ship?
    Sailboat, there’s something romantic about a sailboat.
  10. If you could go back, what advice would you give yourself in high school?
    Try harder, do some study and don’t skip class.
  11. What movie do you flat-out refuse to watch, no matter how good people say it is?
    Any film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ books, same for Twilight.

I’m going to pass this award on to I only eat dessert; which is a food blog based in Adelaide. I love the food shots and it’s all local. Go Adelaide!
I’ll only give you three questions, three is good:

1. Where is the best chocolate in Adelaide?
2. Carob; yay or nay?
3. What is your favourite non-food related Adelaide activity?
