What do you want done with your body after you die?
ha! this writer's block question comes just in time when i was in an angsty mood! well, I want my body to be buried somewhere in a beautiful peaceful place preferably with a seaside view, and in the shadows of a cypress or an olive tree. I'm very much horrified and appalled at the idea of the cremation. I also believe one day we'll all be restored to an eternal life, dust becomes dust, but out of dust we'll be born again. I know some people will be surprised at this point of view coming from me, but deep inside, I am a very spiritual person, and yes, I do believe in God.

Happy birthday, A. A. Milne! Not coincidentally, it's also Winnie the Pooh Day. Which resident of Pooh Corner do you identify with the most?
Happy Winnie the Pooh Day to everyone! Hehehe. The minute I saw this question in writer's block, I just had to answer it! When my lil bro was like 3 years old and discovered the wonderful magic of Winnie and the Co, he assigned the roles to each member of our family. And I had to agree with him! I'm bouncy and fun-loving just like a Tigger! :D Eeyore's too melancholic for me, and the Rabbit a bit too stuck-up lol Although I gotta admit, I do have my Pooh and Piglet moments once in a while, but yep, Tigger it is! 

The wonderful thing about tiggers,  Is tiggers are wonderful things, Their tops are made out of rubber, Their bottoms are made out of springs, They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun,  But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is I'm the only one,  Tiggers are cuddly fellas, Tiggers are awfully sweet,  Everyone el-es is jealous, That's why I repeat and repeat,  The wonderful thing about tiggers, Is tiggers are marvellous chaps, They're loaded with whim and with vigor, They love to leap in your laps, They're jumpy, bumpy, clumpy, pumpy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, But the most wonderful thing about tiggers is I'm the only one!

Yup, totally me!! XD

When it comes to clothes, would you rather be comfortable or fashionable?
Fashionable AND Comfortable - Diesel, Energie, Evisu, G-Star, Replay, Armani, D&G, FCUK - I firmly believe that a funky pair of jeans matches with anything! From a buttons down shirt or a cashmere sweater for a dressy look, to a hip t-shirt or a polo for weekends and casual. You'll never catch me wearing a suit, except at a family event, weddings and such. For clubbing and fun, I love leather and PVC ;)
come and get them
No matter what their budget is, everyone loves a bargain. What item or object do you love the most that cost you the least?
The moment I saw this question, I knew I had to answer it - although not an item, though certainly the object of my affection, my boy Shady cost me $167! There was a huge board in the Puppy Palace store in Boynton Beach, FL,  with "SALE: Black lab mix" on it in big block letters!
He was the best bargain buy in my life so far :D

Today is Thanksgiving in the U.S., one of the few American holidays where the only things you're expected to buy are groceries. Some cooks like to go all out (see: turducken), others prefer to just go out. What kind of cook are you?

On Thanksgiving, I'm a nostalgic cook! I do celebrate a very traditional Thanksgiving (must be about the only person to do so here in the backwoods of the Pyrenees lol) as I used to do when I lived in the US of A. Turkey with homemade stuffing, gravy and mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, sweet potato and green bean casserole, and cinnamon apples!

I love cooking! But I rarely cook for myself alone. I guess that's cuz I like when my cooking is being appreciated by others. And I firmly believe in an old saying that the path to the man's heart goes thru his stomach ;)

In advance of holiday excesses, let's review cures for the common hangover. Coffee, cheeseburgers, raw eggs, lemons and worcestershire sauce—what works? What doesn't?
Buttermilk and hot black tea. That's about the only way to go. Then, just sleeping it off.

The worst hangover in my life so far was when I got drunk at my cousin's wedding when I was 18.  Triple gins and champagne did it.  All I remember of the event was sitting down at the table for the appetizers, then heading to the dance floor and from there to the restroom. Sitting down, then my world has turned pitch black. Next thing I knew I woke up in the hospital bed after a 3 hours' coma. Yay me! XD

el burro
Happy birthday, Humane Society of the United States! A staffer here at LJ loves her dog so much that she made her a meat cake for her birthday. What's the most elaborate (and possibly not justifiable to non-pet owners) thing you've ever done for your pet?
Every year, I buy my two boys Advent Calendars (one each) specially made for doggies, with liver treats instead of chocolate inside. And for Christmas, I hide the yummy gifts for them under the tree among the gifts for humans, all wrapped up, of course. So much fun to watch them sniff them out and "open" (well, the word "tear" would be more appropriate i guess lol) the packages up. They sure love it! :))

puffing
Beer and cigarettes once went together like bread and butter, but now smoking in bars is banned in many cities. When you see smokers standing outside bars in the cold and rain, what is your first reaction? Walk on by, join them, or scorn them?
Well, I guess I'm one of the few lucky ones since I happen to live in a region, where one can still sit down outside the bar and have a smoke while sipping on a glass of sangria or pastis.  Welcome to Catalunya :))
