Tea? Well, isn't it a small world, sir?

Anna at Much Love posted a few questions on her blog (it's a lovely blog, I highly recommend it!) and I thought I'd answer them quickly. Please feel free to consider yourself tagged in this posting and answer the questions yourself. If you do, please leave a comment so I can go read your answers!

one thing that you loved in 2009? Rudolph Valentino, surprisingly. I discovered him while doing research for my independent study on film history. I watched The Sheik on Instant View on Netflix and I was hooked. To be honest, what I love about him isn't even his movies really; I find the phenomenon of him and his appeal incredibly fascinating. There are so many strange facets connected to his popularity that are truly interesting. I'll write a post on him eventually.

one thing you're loving this very moment? Almond Sunset Tea in my brand new yellow tea pot (thanks to my wonderful sister). I worked outside today and all I could think about for around 5 hours straight was how wonderful a hot cup of tea would be (it didn't disappoint).

one thing that you'd love to do next year? go to Brazil. I've been meaning to go for some time. I took a class on Portuguese my last semester and, although I'm far from mastering the language yet, I'm longing to go to Rio.

P.S. I know Christmas is now past but don't forget to vote for your favorite children in a holiday film!


  1. Thank you for doing this post! I really enjoyed reading your answers. Your blog looks wonderful too.


  2. What a great post! Haven't seen Mr. Valentino in anything but he looks quite dashing.
    And I do hope you get your chance to go to Brazil!

  3. Anna - Thank you! I love your blog too!

    Emma - Thank you! There are a few Valentino movies I can recommend if you're interested...

    Tom - I don't know what happens! I guess they all win! Unless somebody votes in the next 22 hours and breaks the tie, we can just discuss how wonderful all of the winners are.
