73 Questions... Just Like Blake Lively

Gossip girl is over (and we, I mean I am still mourning the loss!), so this means Blake Lively (if you've been living under the rock since 2007, that's the chick that played the legendary Serena van der Woodsen) has a lot more free time on her hands... I guess she's not fond of making a musical carrier, like so many young Hollywood actresses do these days. If you're not a triple threat you're nothing in Hollywood (wait, isn't this a Broadway 'thing'?). Anyhow, she just launched her new lifestyle page called PRESERVE.us and supposedly (according to bunch of internet sites I accidentally saw) it's a Goop-like site (apparently a lifestyle page brought to you by Gwyneth Palthrow), just darker. Translation: it has a black background and Goop has white. Big difference, right?
So, in order to promote her newly launched page, she did a video, where a person behind camera asks her 73 quick questions. I liked the questions, so I thought, why not do them as well.
Good idea, but I'm camera-shy, so I'm gonna do them here... Just so you can get to know me better.

HERE THEY COME...

What's your best Halloween costume.
Honestly, I don't do Halloween, however I do do Shrove's Thursday. And there's this traditional costume of an old lady carrying an old man in the basket on her back. It's hilarious.

****
It's over! It took me close to two hours and a fussy toddler that can't sleep to finish this piece.
Now, I'm going to bed, because I'm slowly dying from sleep deprivation that I subject myself to. Better start looking out for myself better. Maybe Preserve.us will help me with that...
