So this fellow (far more legit) blogger Julia was super nice and nominated me to these Liebster shenanigans, which is apparently a blog award thingy? Considering I just started blogging again after a year long hiatus, I’m pretty much fumbling around in the blogosphere, doing whatever floats my boat. And of course, writing things about myself that no one would care enough to ask me otherwise floats my boat so much it’s practically levitating – so let’s go!

I’d like to nominate…
No one? I know, I know, I suck royally but I really am noobing it up right now! I only know of one other blogger, but I asked her if she was up for it and she declined like the little brat she is (just kidding Kiki, ah fookin luv ya). So I swear I’m not an awful person, I’m just not down with the blog-kids yet.
Aaaaaand the queeestions (Yeah I don’t know what the excessive vowels are supposed to accomplish either):
1. What is your favourite book?
A part of me is truly offended that this is a question – you can’t just ask someone what their favorite book is! (Compulsory Mean Girls reference.) But I do have two books that I hold extra close to my heart:
The Catcher in the Rye, by Jerome David Salinger
Looking For Alaska, by John Green
2. What is your most memorable dining experience?
All those delicious breakfasts we had when we were on that school trip senior year. I mean, it’s Crete. The simplest dishes, but everything was just so fresh and real and rural and awesome. An amazing scenery (turquoise ocean and goats defying gravity by climbing mountains) coupled with homemade honey, bread, yogurt, goat cheese, orange juice etc. – you’re just genuinely enjoying life.
3. Favourite cuisine?
Cibo italiano! (I just spent six months learning italian and I’m going to show off my newly acquired vocab dammit, no matter how meagre it is!)
4. What is your favourite meal of the day?
I feel like this is a pretty taboo thing to say, but since I’m such a strong individual and have been put on this earth to guide people in the right direction, I’m going to step up and speak for the people who are like me but are too afraid to be their true selves… I’m not a big food person! And no, I do not have an eating disorder. I have no problem eating. And I do enjoy the taste of food I like… I just don’t have, like, a religious experience over it or anything… which seems to be the case for most people in my life, for some reason. So yeah, favorite meal of the day… breakfast? No, ’cause I skip that like every other day. Lunch is the most abstract concept ever, what is even lunch? Dinner is nice, except that I always eat way too late and then it’s practically a nightly snack. Ooh, I know! I’m gonna cheat, but I think it’s okay since I’m so charming and all (just go with it) – that meal when you’re drunk and all you’re craving is greasy, transfatty food and you’re just guiltlessly loving life… meal of the day. Okay that makes absolutely no sense but yeah.
5. What is your least favourite food?
Oh food, how do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways… No but seriously, I have a lot of food enemies, which probably explains my rant. My nemesis would have to be pancakes though… I know I know, I’m a freak, whatever, but I honestly think that if hell had a texture, it’d be the texture of a thin, mushy pancake.
6. Do you prefer cooking for yourself, or others?
Myself, hands down. No pressure. I don’t do pressure. That’s a story for another post though.
7. Favourite blogs on the internet?
/)w(\ <- I’m using this kawaii emoji to accurately convey my shame. Once again, I’m lost. I’m not really familiar with the wordpress-universe yet. Tumblr is more my thing and let’s not delve into the fandom-abyss here, I’m trying to keep it relatively PG up in this bitch. But wait, does video blogs count? I think I just found a loop hole, take that Libanon award! I’m joking Lichtenstein, you’re the best. Alright I’m just gonna link some shit:
Rachel Whitehurst a.k.a. icallitambrosia a.k.a. 87daysbefore – she’s a funny, sarcastic, cursing beauty guru with an A+ personality
Tyler Oakley a.k.a. tyleroakley – I just want Tyler Oakley to be my best friend, okay?
Christina a.k.a. hrhblaine – Okay fine let’s just tread lightly into tumblr waters. Glee or no Glee, Christina is the voice of every fangirl/fanboy (english, keep with us progressive swedes and come up with a gender-neutral pronoun already!). Just check the video tag – hilarity.
Yeah okay I’m too lazy to think of more.
8. One place you would love to travel to?
You might call me a cliché when I answer “New York” but girl, if you haven’t spent 19 and a half years living in everything-closes-before-it-gets-dark-Stockholm, you don’t have anything to say. I want to walk on the ground of the city that never sleeps, the city of dreamers, the city of everything and anything ever and I want to not be asleep when I’m doing it.
9. Casual dining or fine dining?
Another food question? Fine, casual.
10. Salt or pepper?
Really? Alright salt.
11. Spicy food: yes or no?
Oh come on! This seems to be the last q so I’ll indulge you – my stomach says no to spicy food, and therefore, I say no to spicy food.
Yay that was fun!
