Sheer Determination


Sheer top - Invázió, Random leggings, handmade necklace, handed-down sandals.

It rather looks like I'm back to blogging after all!

Ruth was lovely enough to award me a Liebster blog award, which is very nice especially given the fact that I was absent for such a long time from the blogosphere... These were her questions! If you feel like answering them on your blog or as a comment, please consider yourself invited! :)

1. What is your perfect Sunday afternoon?
Watching snow fall, having hot chocolate, putting my favourite clothes on, stroking a cat and reading.
2. Favourite vegetable?
I go into raptures when I eat broccoli. But really. I mean I moan.
3. If you were to hold a dinner party, who would you invite and why? (Logistical things like time, space and species do not apply here!)
Italo Calvino, Haruki Murakami, Marilyn Monroe, Martin Munkácsi, Brassai, Csontváry, my Boyfriend and my friends, plus some cats. Everyone would relax immediately because of the presence of the cats, Marilyn would dazzle everyone and the photographers would take amazing photographs and we could all talk books and sketch each other.
4. Have you been to all of the tourist monuments in your hometown?
I guess so, and many times, I like taking people around.
5. What item of clothing do you own more of than any other?
Maybe panties? That's very un-style-blogger-like, eh?
6. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18 and find line 4. What is the book and what does it say? No cheating!
"Miyawaki owned a few restaurants." Not a very interesting sentence! Unlike the book, Murakami's The Wind-up Bird Chronicle.
7. Worst book you ever read?
Légy jó mindhalálig. If you're Hungarian, you know what I'm talking about. And every schoolchild has to read it. Jeez, I still get pissed off when I think about it! :D
8. Do you attempt the parallel park, or find another space?
I gave up driving altogether. :)
9. Last status you posted?
About Coelho's claim that Ulysses was utter drivel. What other proof you need that that man is stupid beyond measure? (It seems like I get pissed off about literature a lot! Oh well, everyone has their passionate topics.)
10. How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?
9 and 29 at the same time. I remember the happiness when I turned 18 and got accepted to uni, I was so glad I didn't belong among teenagers anymore! Funnily enough I just skipped that age and ended up a child-hearted grown-up instead.
11. What's in the diary for tomorrow?
A thrifting trip in the afternoon! :)

Welcome back! I love your drawing. Did you draw any of it on paper first or did you use a drawing tablet for your computer? I'm always interested to find out how artists created their work!

"I go into raptures when I eat broccoli. But really. I mean I moan." Hah! You crack me up. My mom thought I was an odd child back when I was four and five because I adored green beans, broccoli and tomatoes. Still do, too. (:

I love your answers. Seriously, so great. Also, what did you think of the Wind-up Bird Chronicle? I think I'm not smart enough for Murakami. I did okay with The Wild Sheep Chase, but the Wind-Up Bird Chronicle did me in.
