flashback friday: the survey edition.

by Janetha on October 8, 2010

in meals

hey guys!

just got off the phone with my main squeeze.

marshall: “wanna go to a movie tonight?”

me: “are you asking me on a date?!”

marshall: “no, just to a movie.”

me: “oh, so just as friends?”

marshall: “just as friends. we won’t hold hands.”

me: “which one should we see? that scary one?”

marshall: “yeah, we could see that one.”

me: “well then i am gonna have to hold your hand.”

the first time i really hung out with marshall outside of work (we met at work), we went to a movie. it wasn’t a date.. we were just going to the movie as friends. we didn’t hold hands. but we both desperately wanted to. we were both big wusses.

i think i will make the move and hold his hand tonight ;)

anyway, that whole ramble up there was to explain that i am not going to spend the time to post my meals & moves for today. and i also don’t have time to scan in any photos for flashback friday.

since i took last night off, i figured i owe it to you guys to at least post something.

so.. i decided to pull a post from my old personal blog that was from two years ago.. october 2008.

it was a survey. i used to fill out a lot of surveys, actually (myspace, anyone?)

anyway, i thought i would post my answers from 2008 and update my answers (if needed) to see how i have changed in two years.

this will be fun! and if you don’t agree, you should probably stop reading now…

Sarah October 11, 2010 at 1:01 am

Fun post! I must first say that kebabs are not just a Norway thing. They are a Turkish thing, brought to the rest of Europe and the world…they are the drunk food of choice in Australia, as well as in England. And Wagamamas also exists in Australia! But I don’t really like it all that much :-(

1. favorite TV show? Simpsons or Family Guy
2. favorite restaurant? Ever? Too hard. Maybe Rootmaster in London? It’s a double decker bus AND a restaurant!
3. something that happened yesterday? Nothing, and it was glorious.
4. something you are looking forward to? Summer! (Down Under)
5. something you love about fall? When I lived in the US, then it’s the leaves changing. Here, it’s too much like spring to ‘feel’ like fall! And the leaves don’t change :-(
6. something on your wish list? A weight bench.

janetha October 11, 2010 at 11:42 am

over the years i have learned that! i’ve got to get back to that side of the globe, i miss the yummy food. and i learned wagamama is on the east coast now, too! that restaurant in london sounds rad. have a great week!

lowandbhold October 11, 2010 at 2:18 pm

You and Marshall are the cutest! I wish you guys had a reality TV show, I would so watch :)

favorite TV show? House

something that happened yesterday? I had lunch with a friend I’ve been disconnected from for a long time. It was lovely.
