BYOC... from Drazil

1. What’s your favorite smell?

My kids. Especially when they were super tiny newborns. They just have this special little almost spicy smell. It makes me want to cry just thinking about it!

2. What is your all-time favorite movie and why?

This is so hard to pick because I watch a ton of movies. But, if I have to narrow it down... First, Empire of the Sun. There are so many little things about the movie I like. Great story, great characters. And a young Christian Bale!

Also, and I know you're going to laugh, I love Xanadu. I was a huge Olivia Newton John fan when I was a kid (my first two records!), and I just cannot get enough of this movie, as cheesy as it is. I bring it out at least once a year, and the soundtrack is in my car right now.

3. What’s your trigger food?

Candy. Any kind, any way. I am a junk-a-holic. I used to have a real problem in that whenever I went to the grocery store or drug store, I always grabbed a candy bar for myself. Every time. Sometimes I would even manufacture a reason to go, just so I had an excuse to grab one. When I feel the urge to do that now, I grab a drink instead, like a Diet Snapple or something that I normally wouldn't treat myself to.

4. When someone you love is going through a difficult time – what are your go-to words to make them feel better – in just a sentence or two?

I am so horrible at this kind of thing. I have a hard time expressing my feelings, so I usually just say something to the effect of, "I'm here if you need to talk, or if you just need a hug."

5. This one is always the same. Who is your nominee for the blog of the week for YOU? Which blog OR comment touched your heart, spoke to you, stuck with you all week?

I would have to say Beth. She had a couple posts that I totally related to, even the one about getting a Mucinex pill stuck. Boy, did that bring back some memories!
