Friday Five: Miscellany

My brother texted me today to let me know that he read my blog during his lunch hour and found it amusing. So I’m writing a few more in case he has another long lunch where he needs entertainment from his sister.

1. What’s your favorite sandwich?

There’s a place in Davis, California called Zia’s Delicatessen. I used to go there once a week when I lived there and got the Viareggio on sourdough. It’s a turkey sandwich, but it’s not just any turkey sandwich, oh no. It has mozzarella, and not the crap you get on a pizza, it’s fresh mozzarella thickly sliced. And I think what makes it really unique and delicious is the pesto mayonnaise. It really adds that sweetness to make this an extraordinary sandwich.

2. You have unlimited funds and unlimited space to make your dream abode. What and where is it, and what does it look like? Do you share it with anyone/anything?

My dream house used to be on an island, it doesn’t have to be big. Like Angel Island is a good size. And I’d have a big house on it. Once upon a time, I wanted a castle, but I’ve discovered that their kind of drafty, so I decided that it would be a manor house. A spooky manor house! And Angel Island would be the perfect place because the fog rolls in periodically giving it that gothic air. And that manor house would be a ginormous library. It has to be two stories worth and would look something like this:

Except that there would be more books along the wall and not so much wood and pictures. (I found this picture at Beautiful Libraries.)

But the reality is that if I did live on in a spooky island manor house, I’d probably scare the crap out of myself every night. I mean, a serial killer could totally be hiding there and I wouldn’t be able to see them because of all the fog!

Plus, a big old manor house would take hours to vacuum and I’m not that great at housekeeping.

3. If you made a movie, what would it be about and who would be in it?

The movie would be about a young woman who has to navigate through a ginormous maze in order to save her brother who has been kidnapped by the Goblin King.

Oh wait, I think they’ve already made that movie.

4. If you were to start a charity, what would it be for?

I would start a charity for starving children. I think it’s really sad when children don’t have enough to eat. It’s not their fault. It’s not like they can properly fend for themselves.

5. What’s your favorite music video? (Bonus points if you embed/link it.)

Even though I’m part of the MTV generation, my family didn’t have cable, so I didn’t have MTV. I barely even watched it in college because by that time, it wasn’t music videos anymore, but like Real World and bikini-clad girls dancing at the poolside.

So this one is kind of hard for me since I’m not really big on the music videos. So it shouldn’t surprise you that the video I’m choosing comes from what basically amounts to a musical. Love it or hate it, I really liked this song because of it’s mash-up of two songs, but I think I really enjoyed it for the tango and maybe Jose Feliciano’s well manicured facial hair.

Don’t judge me.
