Taggity tag

Was tagged by the beautiful Fashion Butter with some questions! If you like gorgeousness, down to earth-ness (just made a word) and Greece you have to go check this blog out =)


1.   Do you wear a watch?
Yesss, I'm always catching trains and buses so it's super helpful. It's a little gold Timex watch from UO - I love it and no other watch has caught my eye since =)


2.   What types of things do you refuse to spend money on?  Splurge on? 
It really kills me to have to buy bottled water! I just can't bring myself to do it unless I'm dehydrated and on my last leg. But I will throw down the .40 cents it takes to buy a packet of ketchup at Mcdonalds here, for sure!  As for everything else, it's all fair game. My general rule is to not buy anything unless I truly love it. (The thing is though, I love a lot of things)

3.   Favorite animal?
My dog...truly. Penguins are a close second =)

4.   The best concert you have ever attended?
I must go with when Mark and I saw Greg Laswell in Des Moines, IA - there was hardly anyone there so we sat at a table near the bar, sipped on great beer and had a flawless view.

5.   What's the oldest piece of clothing you still own and wear?
A pair of A&F jeans that I bought in HS for $50 - the most expensive pair I had bought at that time! They have some holes, some paint, and some rips in them now but they are still so comfortable. I imagine they have stretched quite a bit over the years =)

6.   How do you *really* feel about cat print rompers?
So, I think I might be too old for them?

7.   What towns/cities have you lived in over the years?
Brooklyn NY, Valparaiso IN, Grand Rapids MI, Cedar Rapids IA, Huntsville AL, Buochs - Switzerland

8.   Hot sauce ... evil or yummy?
evil!

Your watch is fabulous ... someone tried to charge me one Euro for a small bottle of water yesterday and I almost threw it back in his face ... I want to squeeze your dog.

And, um, how sweet are you? Your lead-in made me blush! Seriously!

Signe said...

I agree on the bottled water! Don't know how it is everywhere else, but here in Norway the tap water tastes just the same as the bottled water and it just seems like such a waste...

more pictures of your dog!!

(love the watch!)

Ronnica said...

I wore a watch until about 2 years ago, when my last watch's battery died. You know what? I haven't really missed it. My cell phone works for when I need to know what time it is...though I always generally have a good-enough idea.

Cat said...

What a fun post! Hot sauce is totally evil :)

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

haha! i forgot about paying extra for sauces in suisse!

Nikki said...

I can't commit to a watch. $.40 for ketchup!?!

Adele said...

Catita said...

this is so cool! Indeed Fashion Butter is gorgeous and I really like her questions to you! And woooa you've lived in many places in the US. I guess its common to do so back home? Still so cool! How was Brooklyn? I'd love to live there!
And that watch is very nice and so is your doggie!
love that picture ;)

Josie said...

I love hearing more about you Krystal! So funny, but I'm the same way about bottled water, but will drop $2 for a pack of gum! HAHA.

Brina said...

Wow! I can't wear ANYTHING from when I was in high school. I'm so jealous! :)
Really, though, cute post! I normally don't wear a watch, because I hate to have to know what time it is. But I recently bought one, because it was Hello Kitty! I <3 her.

Katie said...

Love your answers :)

this free bird said...

This is the most perfection post EVER!! You have to pay for ketchup??? want me to mail some?? you know I will...I can send some hot sauce from Del Taco too if you'd like (hehe)

RE: Greg Laswell....mmmmkay I have totally met him at a small place we go to here that holds, oh, maybe 85 ppl. Saw him when he was just coming up and no one knew him - he would totally stop and have a chat. Have sat next to him so many times at one of our favorite haunts - a few times when he was dating mandy moore too! Filled my car up w/gas right next to him not so long ago (he drives mercedes which was very bizarre...fedora+slightly dirty guy+mercedes=disconnect for me anyway).

Anyway I feel like I am experiencing 6 degrees of separation in a big way right now!! Only thing is it's only 1!

xoxo,

Panda said...

totes agree with you on the bottled water and ketchup.

Reina said...

yes, i hate buying bottled water too. all those plastic bottles are a real waste. you would have been very annoyed in China (i was really pissed) because the water all over isnt purified, so you cant run a faucet and drink the water without risking getting really sick. So for everything you use water for (besides showers, you just have to take care not to get any on your face) you have to buy bottled water. getting ready in the morning and night was a real pain! And remembering to use the bottled water to brush your teeth was really annoying! we were probably buying 10 bottles of water every few days. so much wasted! but i just makes you realize how precious water is and how much we use everyday.
man, those people in africa must be really tough. i admire that and everybody who dosent take water for granted.

Molly said...

1. I feel guilty, like I'm littering, when I buy bottled water.
2. They make you PAY for KETCHUP???? Girl, you just added to my list of reasons to be angry at McDonalds.
3. Your dog is too stinking cute.

Selma said...

I only drink tap water...however, if I forget my bottle at home I'm mad at myself but will have to buy bottled water for like 1 buck or so. But I won't throw it away...reuse is my favorite word! ;)

Stephany said...

I am so picky about my bottled water that I almost never like the options I have when I'm out. (I hate the metallic-y taste some of them can give me!)

LyddieGal said...

Your dog is so cute, and that photo is fantastic! Love it!!!

Chic on the Cheap

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

Love your answers! I certainly agree with you about penguins and cat print rompers! And don't come to Mexico if you can't stand paying for water... it's an unfortunate fact of life.
And to answer your question about Mexican folk art... I don't think I've ever seen the abuelitos you mention (though they have something similar in Barcelona) but I'd certainly like to see that!

Jen said...

Love that watch!

And totally agree about hot sauce. Gross and evil.

Ashley said...

hot sauce is NOT evil, young lady! You just need to be trained in it :)

You've lived quite a few places over the years! Wow! :)

Jess said...

Hahah - I have some jeans from high school still too. I keep telling myself I need to get rid of them, but can't bring myself to do it!

I buy one bottle of water a week to keep on my desk at work. Our water tastes revolting, and I have filtered water at home so I reuse it for the week and then get a new bottle. I really need to invest in a good quality water bottle.
