getting to know you, getting to know all about you: twenty questions

Inspired by SkinnyLatte, who in turn was inspired by Meet Me At Mikes...

1. Sweet or Savoury?
Sweet tooth here! I really limit my intake but a meal isn't a meal for me without dessert :) My favourites at the moment are dates, yogurt or these delicious bite sized cookies Mr C and I discovered at Whole Foods. On the savoury side, I feel like I have newly discovered a love of cheese, particularly goat's cheese, mmmm. I'd be hard pressed to choose between a good cheese and something sweet at the moment.

2. Dresses or Jeans?
Dresses! Generally I feel more "me" in skirts and dresses. But, I have recently bought two pairs of jeans (from the non-plus section no less) and they have revolutionized my wardrobe - they seem to go with everything and are incredibly comfy. 

3. House or Apartment?
Apartment, we've lived in apartments for years now and the low-fussiness of them is definitely a big plus for us. Occassionally we dream up the ideal house where we'd sit on rocking chair and watch the world go by; that is usually a stand alone house. 

4. Shop Online or Offline?
Both! I love to shop, browse and fashion-watch in real life and virtually :)

5. DVDs or Downloads?
Downloads - iTunes and Netflix are well worn in our house.

6. Cocktails or Juice?
Neither? Wine over cocktails and coffee or water over juice. However, a mimosa at breakfast is pretty hard to turn down :)

7. Chocolate or Strawberry?
Strawberry milkshakes, icecream or cake. But strawberries dipped in chocolate - a winner all round :)

8. Laptop or PC?
Macbook and iPad.

9. Magazines or Newspapers?
Magazines - but use the applications on iPad for both information sources.

10. Facebook or Twitter?
I'm on fb but not twitter, so have to say fb. 

11. CDs or MP3s?
MP3s - iTunes all the way here.

12. Kids or Pets?
Neither - yet. We feel like we have so much to do before we "settle down" and get either - but one day we will. Maybe.

13. Macaron or Cupcakes?
Macaroon! I love coconut, sweet tooth is calling!

14. Walk or Run?
Walk. I have the worst running gait you have ever seen, and I focus so much on running that I forget to breathe properly. Its just an all round disaster best left alone. Love to walk though.

15. Breakfast in Bed or Breakfast Out?
Out for sure. We are spoiled in my home town of Adelaide and have so many delicious spots - one has some fluffy ricotta blueberry pancakes that are divine - I'd eat them in bed, or anywhere, if they appeared there. But otherwise, the crumbs and spilage likelihood prevent my enjoyment of breakky in bed.

16. Market or Supermarket?
Both - I never seem to be able to get everything I want at one spot. I am on the bandwagon for buying locally though, so farmers markets or road side stalls are a big winner for me.

17. Sourdough or Grainy?
Grainy. Have recently discovered Great Harvest breads, and gotta say everything I've tried is amazing. 

18. Heels or Flats?
My vestibular apparatus is questionable, so while I look longingly at heels, its flats for me. I love a good wedge or boot with skirts and dresses.

19. Late nights or Not?
I was born into an old woman's persona - I'm an early to bed, early to rise lark.

20. Coffee or Tea?
Coffee! Nothing beats it in the morning. French press or expresso are my favs. I'll often have tea in the afternoon and have tried to be exotic and branch out but always come back to plain old liptons black tea with milk.
