My friend Rachel @ pace, amore, libri nominated me! Thanks, Rachel, this was fun!
What’s the last movie you saw and what did you think of it?
I watched this random horror movie called The Void because I read some article that it was really good. It…well, I don’t know how I would describe it. It was weird in an unsatisfying sort of way. Supposedly it was trying to tap into Lovecraftian cosmic horror but it also had many elements of a 50s B-horror film. It was the type of movie that was trying to do too many things at once and ended up being kind of confusing.
Do you have any weird or random talents?
According to my brother my talent is making people want to puncture their eardrums when I sing…other than that, no, I don’t think so!
What’s your favorite song at the moment?
I’m currently obsessing over the entire soundtrack of Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812!
What time of day do you do most of your blogging?
I probably shouldn’t say this on a public platform, but normally during the day, because those are the hours I’m at work and I’m usually most focused (and have the most free time, oddly enough).
What’s your favorite museum that you’ve been to?
So, the MET is amazing, but I feel like that’s a cop-out answer, so I’m gonna go with the Chester Beatty museum in Dublin. It features some dude’s private collection of old texts, including old Qurans and stuff. It’s a tiny museum but it’s set up really nicely and is very peaceful.
When’s the last time you went to a wedding?
Oh man…uhh….let’s see…I have no idea, actually! Wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long. Oh, no, wait! I just remembered! It was two years ago; my best friend’s sister got married. I don’t go to a lot of weddings, haha. I don’t know very many people and all my family lives in Egypt!
Do you have a celebrity doppelganger?
Okay, so my family all insists I look like Donia Samir Ghanem but I couldn’t disagree more!
If you were a cat, what color cat would you be? (Very important question.)
Either all black or all white or all orange! I’m a fan of single-color cats.
Do you have a favorite publisher or publisher imprint?
I’m fond of ABRAMS Amulet Books because they always have really great book designs, but their content hasn’t always appealed to me. Content-wise I’m a huuuuuuge fan of Tor and Orbit.
Have you ever dressed up like a fictional character? (Bonus points for photo evidence.)
Nope! Always wanted to cosplay, though.
What’s your favorite thing about your city (or state, or country)?
I’m not a huge fan of New York City, but I appreciate its diversity and convenience.
I’ll tag…anyone who wants to do it I’M SORRY I’m terrible at this tagging thing.
