    haha, shy, i often joke that if anybody stole my wallet (in the US!) they’d probably try to return it after they see the number of business cards i have from cops and detectives in there!

  5. Sabrina Siddiqui

    Shyemaaaa…you are killing me with these. I can’t say no to them haha.

    1. What’s the last album that you downloaded? Ok, so I definitely seldom download entire albums. usually just songs. The last album was probably I Am Sasha Fierce…but that was ages ago. Last song was …wait for it… 3 by Britney Spears. I swore I wouldn’t cave, but it’s catchy. Although it’s only the fifth Britney song I’ve ever downloaded in my life.

    2. Where’s your favorite place to be? Roma and London…miss Europe so much :(

    3. Where’s your least favorite place to be? An airplane. I’m so restless and turbulence freaks me out.

    4. Strong in mind or strong in body? Stronger in mind, but strong in body, too. People think I’m too petite to be strong, but they haven’t seen me move our gigantic television.

    5. What makes you smile? My niece, Soha. She’s my cousins’ daughter, but I treat her as if she were my brother’s daughter :)

    6. Are you allergic to anything? I have year-round allergies that are out of control. I’m thinking of getting my likely deviated septum adjusted and no, that is not code for a nosejob.

    7. What is your favorite season? Fall when it doesn’t get cold/rainy too early on. Otherwise spring time, also when it doesn’t rain all season long.

    8. What’s your least favorite household chore? Cleaning the bathroom

    9. If you could have one super power, what would it be? Knowing what other people are thinking.

    10. Rain or snow? I know I just complained about the rain, but I prefer it to snow if it’s not too cold. Sadly four years in Chicago made me underappreciate/kind of loathe the snow.

    11. Can you juggle? No, but I pretend I can.

    12. The one person from your past you wish you could go back and talk to? My paternal grandmother

    13. What’s your favorite meal of the day? I love Sunday brunch when it’s done, otherwise dinner

    14. Last run in with the police? Shyema, I’m just glad that incident didn’t occur in Italy. Damn those Frenchmen…they always spell trouble 😉 Although my last run in with the police (carabinieri, in this case) was in Italia, and they were hitting on me. Typical Italian men.

    15. Sushi or burger? I like both but I loooove burgers.

  6. shyema Post author

    hahaha nice, OK Sabrina, I promise to space these out a little more — though I quite enjoy reading them :)

    PS I would so not want to know what other people are thinking…24hr paranoia? No thank you!!

  7. Sabrina Siddiqui

    Haha really? I think not knowing what people are thinking leads to more paranoia, because you have no idea. Although I guess it depends on who said ‘people’ are.

    And you can keep them coming. Distractions at work are always welcome.
