Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is futile" and I will respond by asking you five questions that satisfy my curiosity. Update your journal with the answers to the questions, including this in the post. My questions from magister_cain
1~ If you could live one historical period of you choice, when would you choose?
Because artistically, scientifically, historically and socially it has been an important turning point, I choose the Cinquecento. And to be be even more precise, in La Serenissima at its cultural greatness.
2~ What is your perfect way to spend a Sunday morning?
Unfortunately I've got the habit to sleep till midday, crawl out of the bed to indulge myself with coffee and cereals. But sometimes, I surprise myself in waking around 10 am fresh as a daisy. The ritual is always the same: I make some french toasts, a hot chocolate, grab a book or my recipes notebook to work on a new formula and go back to bed with my treasures till I decide that a shower would be great.
Fascinating, isn't it?
3~ Do you believe in true love?
This is truly a difficult question. Don't repeat it to my friends and family, but yes I do. There's an incorrigible romantic deep inside me who's waiting for someone who will complete me. The practical side of me thinks that it doesn't happen to everybody and that I should be happy with what I have but, deeply, I crave to experience such a bond that will put my fears aside, who will get me out of my shell, makes me complete and inaccessible for a valid reason.
4~ What is you favorite fairytale, or modern retalling of one?
The Little Red Riding Hood. Not the sweetened one. The originals. And the Angela Carter's version. Another answer would be "Have you read The Uses of enchantment: The meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales
by Bruno Bettelheim?".
5~ Do you have a motto, and if so, what is it?Omnia mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis
. All things change, and we change with them (Ovide). It just seems accurate to me.
