Wow. Today I was nominated by The Girl in Glasses for a Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. I was genuinely flattered and accepted the award. It means a lot that I was one of 7 blogs she nominated in all of the blogging community. I am a loyal reader of her blog and I’m happy I joined the Blogging 101 course because that’s how I found her blog. You should follow her and you’ll get to know a generous, positive girl who will help you pick the right shade of lipstick ūüėČ

The rules:
Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
Put the Award logo on your blog.
Answer the ten questions sent to you.
Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
Nominate seven blogs.

My answers:
Where do you source your inspiration from?
Music. There is a song perfect for every moment and mood. Music wakes me up, puts me to sleep, and nourishes my soul.

If a film was being made about your life, which actor/actress would you choose to play you?
Lauren Graham aka Lorelai Gilmore of “Gilmore Girls.” She drinks lots of coffee, writes novels, is funny, smart and pretty.

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?
Don’t let your friends/teachers/family push you into a path that may not be your dream.

What is one of your favourite memories?
Rollerskating in Central Park in the summer and hanging out in the Sheep Meadow with my first boyfriend.

If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?
A pen, notebook, my glasses, Apple TV, and coffee mug.

How would your friends describe you?
Good listener, sympathetic, kind, loyal, funny, intense yet laid-back and down-to-earth.

What is your biggest dream?
To get paid to write so that I could be financially independent.

What are some of the things that make you happy in life (big or small)?
I like affectionate dogs that you meet while they are on their walks. When my cats come snuggle with me. Having a good cry while watching a movie in the theatre. Having a close relationship with my parents.

If you could choose to have one super power, what would it be and why?
The power of invisibility at will so I could go anywhere. Although not being seen is lonely so that’s the drawback.

If you have your music stored somewhere (E.G. iTunes, Spotify) then hit shuffle, what is the first song that it lands on?
Hole in My Heart by Rick Springfield from the album Working Class Dog.

Lauren Graham’s Reddit AMA – Highlights Pt. 2

Highlights Pt. 2:

Q: Was Melissa McCarthy hilarious to work with in Gilmore Girls? I love that many of the cast of that show went on to have such great acting careers!

A:¬†Truly hilarious and kind on set, and then I’d go see her in Groundlings and be blown away by the characters she created.

Q: Who out of the cast on parenthood is the most similar to their character ?

A:¬†Hard to say. Dax is an extremely funny guy who is also a super dedicated family man – like Crosby. And Peter is obviously perfect, just like Adam. ūüôā

Q: Did you have a good relationship with Alexis, do you still see her? You guys made such a great mother/daughter combination.

A:¬†Love her, we’ll always have a special bond. Saw her in NY not too long ago. I had a nice lunch with TV mom Kelly and Amy S.P. as well. We went to Joe Allen, one of my faves.

Q:¬†Top 3 things you love to do when you’re in NYC!

A: I love to walk, anywhere really, but especially over the Brooklyn Bridge, shop with my sister, eat at Momofuku.

Q: Who would you say had the biggest influence on you growing up/who influenced your decision to pursue acting?

A: Thank you so much. My dad was always supportive of whatever I showed an interest in Рfrom horseback riding to acting. And I had some great teachers along the way too.

Lauren Graham’s Reddit AMA – Highlights Pt. 1

Lauren Graham is doing a Reddit AMA to promote the release on paperback of her novel “Someday Someday Maybe.”

Here are the highlights:

Q: Did you understand most of the pop culture references in Gilmore Girls?

A:¬†If I didn’t, I’d look them up. Part of being an actor is research!

Q: What inspired you to write your book? It was really good by the way!

A: Thanks! I wanted a new challenge and something I could do on my own.

Q: What do you remember most about your appearance on Seinfeld?

A:¬†I remember Jerry was very appreciative and nice and and laughed at everyone else’s jokes.

Q: What was the hardest part about writing your book?

A:¬†As much as I wished it would, the book wouldn’t write itself! Sitting down every day and trying not to look at shoes on Zappos was the hardest part.

Q:¬†Thanks for doing this! You’re one of my favorite actresses. What was the most exciting or memorable moment from Gilmore Girls?

A:¬†Thank you! Hard to pick one moment, but I remember working long hours and getting really punchy. We’d start making up raps and singing “Loving You” by Minnie Ripperton.

Q: This is more for my mom, who loves Gilmore Girls. She wants to know if Luke, Scott Patterson, is a good kisser. She was maybe a little too invested in your relationship on the show.

A:¬†He’s an excellent kisser, but all movie kisses are weird, since you’re trying to have an intimate moment in front of a hundred people.

Q: Hi Lauren, big fan of Gilmore girls will there ever be a movie?

A:¬†I honestly don’t know. I appreciate how many have asked. That character was so special – I wonder what happens to her too!
