Random Wednesday Questions!

Hi everybody! I hope all your Wednesdays are going awesomely. We haven't had as many random question days recently, so I thought I'd get one started. Hope you enjoy :smileyhappy:

 

1. Do you prefer facial peels or clay masks?

2. Do you have a drink you always order at Starbucks? If so, what?

3. What is your favorite guilty pleasure snack?

4. What movies are you most looking forward to this spring?

5. What book(s) are you currently in the middle of reading?

6. How many languages do you know?

7. Who is your current celebrity obsession?

8. Are you a morning person or a night person?

 

Okay, let's have a go at these.

 

1. Do you prefer facial peels or clay masks? Actually, both. I love to put on a peel first to get rid of any dead skin, and then put on a mask afterwards. I feel it's more effective after you've just had a peel.

2. Do you have a drink you always order at Starbucks? If so, what?
A medium mocha with extra whipped cream.

3. What is your favorite guilty pleasure snack? Nutella, definitely *tries to ignore large jar of Nutella sitting in the cupboard a few yards away*

4. What movies are you most looking forward to this spring? Probably I'm most looking forward to The Fault in Our Stars. The book is one of my favorites, and the movie looks like it'll be great. I'm going to sob so much, though. :smileyhappy: Also excited about X-Men: Days of Future Past!

5. What book(s) are you currently in the middle of reading? The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov, Paper Towns by John Green, and the second volume of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman graphic novel series.

6. How many languages do you know? English (although my command of that language does seem to slip away sometimes late at night!), pretty good Spanish, and a little bit of German.

7. Who is your current celebrity obsession? BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. Especially after just finishing the newest season of Sherlock, and now facing a long time before the new season. :smileysad:

8. Are you a morning person or a night person? Definitely a night person. I don't like getting up.

1. Do you prefer facial peels or clay masks? Clay masks. Less weird-feeling.

2. Do you have a drink you always order at Starbucks? If so, what? Oh, man, now you're going to make me sound like a Pacific Northwest Snob. Seattle is home to Starbucks and we kind of view it like the McDonalds of coffee - they're everywhere, they're all but automated, and they are of a standard quality. That said, most coffee drinkers I know in my area don't go to Starbucks - caffeine junkies looking for a fix go to Starbucks. :smileytongue: So, my Starbucks order is a grande quad-shot vanilla latte if I'm in that kind of a bind or out of the Pacific Northwest.
3. What is your favorite guilty pleasure snack? An avocado with a specific brand of Israeli-import feta cheese. (There are other fetas that do okay but this stuff is just the best tangy, creamy feta.)
4. What movies are you most looking forward to this spring? I have kids and work nights - I don't get to see movies in the theater more than twice a year. Captain America: The Winter Solider; X-Men: Days of Future Past; Maleficent have most of my attention for now. 
5. What book(s) are you currently in the middle of reading? One of the many Vincent Calvino Crime novels by C. G. Moore. 
6. How many languages do you know? Fluently? 4 Smatterings? An additional 2.
7. Who is your current celebrity obsession? I have many all the time. However, my enduring celebrity to drool over is Tilda Swinton.
8. Are you a morning person or a night person? Night. Before I had littles, unless it was required for work I was rarely up before noon or in bed before 4am.

Next time I get a makeover at Sephora and they ask me what kind of look I want to do, I'm just going to tell them to contour the heck out of my face and give me Tom Hiddleston's cheekbones. :smileytongue:

tinaaz

Re: Random Wednesday Questions!

You should definitely try some facial peels and mask, they are great! Currently I'm loving Alba Botanica's Pore Purifying Mini Peel, and the Umbrian Clay masks from Fresh.

1. Do you prefer facial peels or clay masks?

 

Hmm, I like both, clay masks are easier to remove though.

 

2. Do you have a drink you always order at Starbucks? If so, what?

 

"Grande Dark Roast" lol, their fancy drinks are too expensive considering I'm at Starbucks 4 days a week. If it's hot out then I'll get a Venti Iced Green Tea 1 pump, peppermint 1 pump classic, or a nonfat iced coffee unsweetened. I don't like drinking my calories.

 

3. What is your favorite guilty pleasure snack?

 

I actually really dislike snacks haha. I get full but it's not fulfilling. I'd rather have a meal.

 

4. What movies are you most looking forward to this spring?

 

Maleficent, Godzilla

 

5. What book(s) are you currently in the middle of reading?

 

None at the moment.

 

6. How many languages do you know?

 

I speak English fluently :smileywink: But I have taken Spanish and can still speak/understand it, French which I've kind of forgotten, Japanese although now I can only read katakana and hiragana characters and just barely, and Mandarin which I got a C in but can still remember a few words.

 

7. Who is your current celebrity obsession?

 

Nobody! I don't follow celebrities too much.

 

8. Are you a morning person or a night person?

 

Late morning or night person. I'm usually sleepy in the early morning and afternoons.

Re: Random Wednesday Questions!

1. Do you prefer facial peels or clay masks?

Peels! I feel more refreshed with a peel

 

2. Do you have a drink you always order at Starbucks? If so, what?

It used to be their chai tea, but then I realized how many cals were in that, so now I always get the passion fruit tea

 

3. What is your favorite guilty pleasure snack?

I love those cinanamon sugar pita chips...I can literally kill a whole bag nom nom nom

 

4. What movies are you most looking forward to this spring?

I'm not really sure, I'm the type of person who knows a movie is coming out when the previews start up right before it hits theaters...I'm not very good at keeping in the know .

 

5. What book(s) are you currently in the middle of reading?

I'm on book 2 of the game of thrones series...love

 

6. How many languages do you know?

2...Korean and English

 

7. Who is your current celebrity obsession?

I seriously obsessed with Lilly Ghalici and Doroth Wang...so more like reality celebrities for the moment

 

8. Are you a morning person or a night person?

Im NOT a morning person, but these days I'm not as much of a night persoan as I used to be...so maybe more like an afternoon person?

Re: Random Wednesday Questions!

1. Do you prefer facial peels or clay masks?

Clay masks tend to go easy on my sensitive oily skin.


2. Do you have a drink you always order at Starbucks? If so, what?

A grande soy latte. Extra-hot. I don't like syrups in my coffee.

BBQ Pringles (I could eat them all day though). And Ritter Sport Espresso chocolate.


4. What movies are you most looking forward to this spring?

VERONICA MARS!!! Unfortunately, it will not be shown in cinemas around me, so maybe a road trip is in my future... :smileyhappy:


5. What book(s) are you currently in the middle of reading?

I am reading six books at the moment. All of them are my textbooks :smileytongue:


6. How many languages do you know?

Two that I am fluent in, and one that I can read and understand when spoken, but can barely put two words together myself.

 

7. Who is your current celebrity obsession?

Lana Del Rey


8. Are you a morning person or a night person?

A night person that is forced to live as a morning person. Coffee is my bestest friend.

Yeah, I suppose I forgot to include textbooks. That would make the list significantly longer :smileysad:

1. I've never tried a facial peel, actually! I like the way masks get the gunk out of my pores though.

 

2. I like the refreshers, sometimes I get an iced green tea. They had an excellent one during the summer that was a peach green tea lemonade but it's been discontinued :smileysad:

 

3. Ice cream. VERY guilty.

 

4. This sounds weird but I'm not a movie person, I just can't sit still long enough in a movie theater and our local one has the volume turned up way too loud all the time. I tend to wait until movies show up on hulu/netflix.

 

5. I'm in the middle of rereading all of my Terry Pratchett novels, I haven't picked them up in five years and they're still great.

 

6. English is my first language. I've studied a few different languages in school but I'm better at reading and writing them than I am at speaking them.. Something about having to pick the right verb tense in real time freezes up my brain.

 

7. I don't really follow celebrities but I'm super invested in every character on Brooklyn Nine Nine if that counts. I've been marathoning the series after a friend suggested it to me, it's really fun.

 

8. A night person, definitely.
