1. What I was doing 10 years ago: Aside from spending the 4th of July in Ojai, not entirely sure—I think I’ve blocked it out. Probably working at an import/export company that was eventually bought by FedEx. No, I take that back—I just checked an old resume. I didn’t start working at Tower Group until September, I was going to summer school at FIDM. |
2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
I can only pick 5?????
Sew green bodice—have ready for Angelina to fit
Chemise—finish edges of last gusset, and draw embroidery pattern on sleeves
Finish reading Lucia: A Venetian Life in the Age of Napoleon
Finish reading all Quilting books
Plant everything that can be planted in pots, water and start plotting where to plant everything else (I bought about 30 plants in Cambria and Paso Robles this weekend)
Fill out passport application
Apply for job at KUSC
3. Snacks I enjoy:
Stuffed Basil Leaves
Cheese and crackers
Soy parmesan on toasted pita bread
4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Buy a Birkin bag . And dog collars to match.
Build a beachfront Palladian villa in PV Estates, with a courtyard strongly resembling the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, a couple of acres of gardens, the most enormous bathtub known to mankind, and an even bigger walk-in closet. And a library on every floor.
Take a cruise to Antarctica
Go to India for 6 months to study yoga.
Quit my job, take voice lessons and riding lessons, and start training to walk across England, compose a symphony and an opera, maybe write a novel.
Move to France, and learn to speak French.
Pay someone to make all my garb.
And then I would have to figure out what to do with the rest of my life. This is the part where I start using the money to make a positive impact on the world. Maybe something to do with literacy.
5. Places I have lived:
Rolling Hills Estates, CA
