Maureen & I @ my stagette - May 2006
Where do I begin with Maureen??? I have known this girl since high school. We weren't enemies, we weren't friends...we said hi to each other and had mutual friends. Now fast forward a couple of years, you would have found me begging her nicely to drive my drunk friends back to Mississauga from Power Bar (a nightclub) because I still didn't have my licence and no one was sober enough to drive home. I remembered that she lived in the same area and being the nice girl she is, she drove all of back to a donut shop so all the boyfriends of the girls could pick them up. Fast forward a few years more and you will find me hanging out with her more because she was friends with my soon-to-be husband. After this, we began partners-in-crime, hitting every club together. Nowadays, you will find us at the movie theatre or going for bubble tea almost every week.
Maureen has slowly inched her way back into the blogging world but came with full force. Check out her blog, a little rough around the edges. She uses her blog as an outlet for what's on her mind.
1) When and why did you start blogging?
i started blogging years ago, but stopped for a couple of years. then became an on & off blogger over a year ago and most recently an active blogger for almost 2 months now and plan on sticking with it. i started blogging because in real life i'm not the most expressive when it comes to my feelings. sure i'm social, loud and at times annoying, but i never really reveal any true details of why i may be feeling down or even why i'm feeling extremely happy. blogging is my forum to help me release things i normally would not mention. in my old blog, i was always cryptic. now i'm all about the "f*ck it!" attitude. everything is going on my blog... happy, sad, annoying and any other randoms in between.
2) Where do you live?
Toronto in Ontario, Canada... woooo!
3) What do you for a living and what do you do in your spare time when you are not blogging?
i'm a Marketing Specialist in the gaming (ahem, also known as gambling) industry, but we're regulating by the Government, so it's alllll goooood... in my spare time i body jam (workout class), yoga, particpate in other social networking forms, spend time with friends and family and travel here and there.
4) What is your favorite website to visit daily?
lately, it's expedia. on a more consistent basis it's twitter and facebook.
5) What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
i love to travel, but have yet to find my favorite vacation spot. some of my destinations have been... Hawaii, Punta Cana, El Salvador, Paris, Amsterdam, Germany, Belgium, Holland, San Jose, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Miami, Vancouver... i have had repeated visits to Vancouver, Vegas and Miami, but i think the most memorable vacation was Punta Cana (for your wedding, Leesh!).
6) Name your top three favorite songs.
what, only 3??? 1) "Find You Love" by Drake. i'm still not sick of this song! 2) "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden. this is the ex's influence. 3) "Sexy Love" by Ne-yo. this is my forever jam...
7) Who is your favourite celebrity to stalk?
i actually don't stalk celebrities, but i do tend to be giddy when i watch a movie with Josh Duhamel in it or Ryan Reynolds' abs.
8) What's your favorite drink?
an ice cold pint of Rickards White baby!
9) What is your latest obsession?
this is bad to say, but drinking alcohol and Trevor. if you read my blog then you understand who Trevor is to me.
10) What would your last meal be?
i'd say salmon sashimi, spider roll, seaweed salad, thin crust mushroom pizza, lumpia shanghai with sweet chilli sauce, some really good pad thai, something good with shrimp, moco loco, macadamia nut ice cream topped with sugar syrup sprinkled with crushed kona coffee, some really good mini cupcakes and let's throw in some freshly baked, yummy, cute mini donuts. (you said this is my LAST meal, so i went all out!)
