Lorena from the Blog

I thought it would be nice to answer Ralph at Shybiker's questions here in my blog.
Sometimes it's nice bring in a little bit of the "person" into the blog.

If you are here and have time, will you answer at least one of these questions for me ?

I would also like to know more about you.

1. What is your favorite item of clothing?
Jeans were my first choice for eveything for too long. Now I am embracing dresses and skirts.
Its like I am growing up, well it was about time !
2. What do you do to get ready for a big date?  How long does it take you?
I usually grab a dress. Apply make up to enhance my eyes and accessorize.
The whole thing takes me about 30 minutes.
3. Do you know how to dance?  Are you any good?
I know how to dance, well I think I do. Now you have me wondering...
4. What's your favorite TV show?
I enjoy Greys Anatomy, Drop Dead Diva, 3rd Rock, Private Practive and Bing Bang Theory.
5. What do you want to achieve in your life?
I would like to be a positive example for others. Young people.
I want to do this through teaching.
I have been thinking about going back to school to accomplish that.
Also, I would like to be able to have my own business.
Something simple like an ice cream shop which may not sound very challenging. But I would be totally in heaven if it were an antique shop.  I would not want to sell anything.
Besides that, I just want to be happy-
6. Who are the most important people to you?
My grandmother is without question my person. She is 81 and continues to amaze met.
7. Does anyone inspire you?
Yes, normal people with great stories.
For example how someone through honest work and perseverance can make a difference in their own life and those around them.
8. Do you have any deep, dark secrets?  Can you talk to anyone about them?  Do you have a BFF?
Answer to the first question is yes, I do.  I do not talk to anyone about it.
People tend to judge even before they try to understand, I think its human nature.
Also in the past my friends have not been able to keep secrets so after I learned that lesson, I keep things to myself.  Another thing is that I have learned that when someone trusts me and asks me to keep a secret, it will die with me.
I have had two BFFS, one is summoned in depression with not much anyone can do. The other seems to have forgotten I exist. So I am pretty much on my own right now.
9. Have you ever been to prison?  Are you allowed to leave the state?
Not been in prison, hopefully never will be.
10. If you could magically change something about yourself, what would it be? 
I would have good healthy habits that including me liking veggies and fruits and exercising. I would be taller and would not have a single gray hair.

1. What is your favorite item of clothing?
Clothing-clothing, a black wrap dress that I've not really worn on the blog. But if shoes are allowed - my cowboy boots.
2. What do you do to get ready for a big date? How long does it take you?
I tease my hair, but on some more make up, and break out a pretty dress and sexy shoes. Thirty minutes.
3. Do you know how to dance? Are you any good?
I loooove dancing. I got my husband into Latin dancing - he loves bachata and salsa. I won't be winning any competitions, but I enjoy it.

1.Jeans, jeans and one more time jeans.
2.Preparation for a date always takes as much time as I have on my hands. All day is perfect. Usually I try almost all of my clothes, then mess with my hair. There are lots of things to do actually. :D
3.I'm not sure. It's either I don't like dancing or dancing doesn't like me. :D
4.Gossip girl, Dr. House, Desperate Housewives, Dexter. Oh and X Factor, I'm celebrity get me out of here and Britain got talent.
5. I'd like to work in advertising one day. Travel the world, have a walk in wardrobe at my house.
7. It depends. There are lots of things and people that inspire me. However if something inspires me at the moment, it might not work tomorrow. And then something else might keep inspiring me for ages. My muse has disappeared recently and I am looking for a new one. :D It's a difficult question.
8. Secrets - no, BFF - hell yes. I've got one really special friend. (An example of the muse :D) The problem is that I get to see her once or twice a year, because she lives in other country. Still we chat on Facebook every day.
9. No, never.
10. Laziness is what I'd like to change. :D

I do love answering questions like this :D Reading answers is always fun too.
