the answers

How tall are you & how much do you weigh?
I'm a shorty - only a bit over 5 feet tall! I've always wanted to be a model, ever since I was about 7 or 8, so that's one life-long dream that will never play out. I am roughly 90 pounds, give or take a few on certain days. I have good genes which allow me to eat mostly ice cream and junk food but remain slim.
What are your favourite shops to buy clothes in?
I buy most of my clothes from Urban Outfitters, H&M, Macy's (they've started to carry some really unique brands), Delia's, and Heritage 1981. I also like ModCloth & Fred Flare for unique items that not everyone is going to have by season's end. I thrift or go to vintage or second hand shops frequently, too. You can find some really great items that way.
What type of camera do you use?
I use a Pentax K200D, a really nice DSLR. I swear by Pentax, they've been around forever and create high quality cameras and equipment.
What's your favourite music to listen to when you want to zone out?
Lately I've been a bit of a Simon & Garfunkel junkie. I also listen to a lot of Cat Stevens when just cooling off and thinking. Other favourites are Something Coporate, David Bowie, Gregory Lemarchal, & George Harrison. I listen to these guys when going to sleep, doing homework, writing, etc.
What are your views on America having a public health service, similar to the NHS?
I think that health care should be available to everyone, and thus I am for universal health care. However, I'm not entirely convinced that Obama is going about it in the best ways. It's a tricky issue for America right now, there are still a lot of revisions to be made before Americans will have universal healthcare. Hopefully one day it will be more than a privilege.
What's your favourite brand?
BB Dakota is one of my favourites. I also love Cheap Monday for jeans. Sretsis is really cute, but I don't own anything by that brand. American Apparel is always very innovative, so I dig their stuff. For shoes, Doc Martens & Steve Madden are both great (& affordable!). Other brands I really like include Stolen Girlfriends Club, Soundgirl, Happy Socks (socks are totally underrated).
How much money do you spend on clothes a month?
Too much. Depending on the month I can spend anywhere from $5 (sad month for clothes) to $100. Lately I've not been spending much, as the U.S. is in a recession and I've been broke.
Do you play any musical instruments?
Nope, unfortunately I don't. I used to play the recorder & the violin. I wish I kept up with the violin. I've always wanted to play guitar, but my parents wouldn't ever let me learn. I also always wanted to play piano. We've never owned a piano however, so I couldn't learn. I love rag time though...I have my friends play for me instead.

BB Dakota is one of my favorites, as well. They have such amazing clothes. Love the fact that you're a shorty - I'm only a bit over five feet, as well! :)

You should use the internet to learn to play guitar. I was going to do that but my guitar saw in the basement so long that it can't hold a tune. I think the humidity warped the neck. But right now I'm using the internet to learn clarinet until band season is over and my friend will have time to teach me.

Wow, I love what you said about health care! It's so refreshing. People can get really tetchy about politics.
