answers, part I
Christmas Eve at my parents' place
Here is the first batch of questions and answers from the giveaway:
Have you ever had what you would call "the perfect cupcake/muffin"?
The chocolate cupcake from Magnolia Bakery in New York was great, but I’m also pretty pleased with my own chocolate cupcakes. Still I think the best muffin/cupcake experience I’ve had was with the muffin I bought at Borough Market in London in June. It was some kind of berry muffin, freshly baked and lukewarm.
What are your Christmas wishes?
Well, now that Christmas Eve has passed, I know what I got and I’m super happy. But I didn’t really wish for much; I have most of the things I need and wish for.
What do you do when you have a creative block (if you ever had it...)?
What usually makes you laugh?
Oh yes, I do have creative blocks, especially when it comes to my writing. I’m not very good at dealing with it actually, but I try to remove all distractions, get some fresh air, some good food and then just do it.
I’m a bit embarrassed to say this, but America’s Funnies Home Videos always makes me laugh.
Do you plan to have children? Why or Why not?
Yes, we do plan to have children. For me, having children is a natural part of life.
If you had to move away from Bergen to any other city of your choice, where would it be?
New York was an amazing city which I would love to explore more by living there for a while. But realistically I think my hometown Sandnes or the neighbor city Stavanger is where we would move. Our parents live there and lots of our friends.
When you think of Brazil, what is the first thought that pops into your head?
Carnival, samba and beach life.
Have you ever had doubts about being a blogger? in other words; what is your biggest reason to own a blog?
No, I have not had any doubts. Well, by the way, I do. Sometimes I feel like I spend too much time in front of the computer and blogging (and Flickr) is the main reason for it. On the other hand, I love photography and I really enjoy sharing my photos with others. I also enjoy sharing random inspiring finds with others. I think those are the main reasons for my blogging.
You are one of those people that you give much importance to each of the elements in your home. I mean, at first glance. You think watching your home I can see the reflection of your personality? Or Do you think a home is to be comfortable and useful, but nothing else?
I think a home in general should be all of that; a reflection of the owner’s personality, comfortable and useful/functional. I feel like my home is all that. And yes, I do care about each element in my home.
Do you like winter?
Yes. But I do sometimes get sick off the darkness.
What are you reading currently and which norwegian writer or book would you recommend your readers?
Right now I’m reading a book called “Gjeld” (debt) by Torgrim Eggen. I would recommend “Out Stealing Horses” by Per Petterson.
