Jeremy and Kathleen asked... Do you drink alcohol?
Budapest Wine Festival 2008
Yes, I do drink although not that much. I don't have a moral objection to it, I just never acquired much of a taste for hooch. I'll enjoy a cocktail on occasion, its not something I would consider a serious pastime.
Brand New and Beautiful asked...What do you do for a living?
I get this question a lot. In fact, I already answered it in my original Q&A post last year. Click here to read my answer. (And no, my job has not changed since then.)

It's funny you mention this because I just finished one of these 10 things list for another blog. The lovely Paloma of La Dolce Vita invited me to participate in her series so my answers will be appearing later this month. Ill let you know when its up.
felix said... I would like to hear more about your travels. Have you been to Japan?
Wedding procession in Tokyo, 2009
Yes, I've been to Japan once. We spent a long weekend in Tokyo last year and I blogged about here. You can read more of our trip reports by looking at the box I've added at the right hand side of the page.
StellaSmithDesigns said... Thanks to your links I just read that you spent your 30th in Paris. I'm planning a trip there for my 30th as well in October. Do you have suggestions for restaurants/hotels/must-dos?
Parisian flower shop at night, 2007
When we went to Paris, I wasn't posting non house stuff on the blog. Obviously that all changed last year but I did post a flashback of our Paris trip. I am quite far from an expert but my suggestions would be to: visit at least one of the big flea markets if only to browse (prices are really high), stop in La Dureee to oogle at the macaroons, enjoy being a tourist in Montmarte and visit the amazing taxidermy displays at Deyrolle. Writing this is making me want to go back now!! Its an amazing city no matter what you do - you'll enjoy yourself.
Tearing Up Houses asked do you and mr. limestone plan on being at your current pad indefinitely?
In a word, yes. We have no plans of moving ever. Obviously we don't know what life has in store for us so anything is possible but we hope to be in the limestone for the foreseeable future.
Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said... Best bagels in Brooklyn?
Grand Army Plaza, 2007
My favorite bagels just happen to come from a shop a few blocks from my house - Terrace Bagels. But its a little out of the way for Brooklyn visitors so I would recommend another place called La Bagel Delight which is just as good in Park Slope. You can read more about my favorite places to eat, shop and see by reading my Pocket Guide to Brooklyn.
Lavender and Lilies said... Have you lived in NYC/ Brooklyn your whole life?
Brooklyn Bridge Span, 2008
Another easy one - yes, we've lived in Brooklyn our whole lives. We both grew up in the area and love Brooklyn so we stayed.
Naz said... Do you work from home or do you go to an office?
As much as I would love to work from home, that isn't in the cards. I get on the subway with the millions of other commuters and make my way to a drab office everyday.
PhillyLass said... Is your limestone considered a historic property?
Nope, nothing historic or important about my house. Brooklyn has lots of landmarked areas but I am not in one of them.
Valerie said... what does the outside of your house look like? what are the dimensions of it?
My house is the one with the black painted awning. Its approximately 20 feet wide which is the standard for homes like mine.
Ok, thats about it for the easy ones. You've given me lots more to answer so I'll be back with those. And if you want to add more to the pile, feel free.
