on thinking this blog is cool when really, it is pretty lame:

my good friend, rayo, at this blog liebster'd me. and elsa, over here did, too. 
they're pretty awesome. thanks, ladies!

anyway. here we go.

the rules:
-each person must post 11 things about themselves.
-answer the questions that the tagger set for you PLUS create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer
-choose 11 people and link them in your post
-go to their page and tell them. (no tag backs)

eleven things that you could care less about: 
-i'd like for one of my pieces to get published in the new yorker... fat chance, eh? we'll see...
-sharing drinks? gross.
-my deepest fear is not that i'm inadequate. my deepest fear is that i'm powerful beyond measure. (did i steal that?)
-i like jokes. and plagiarism. 
-just kidding. i hate plagiarism.
-but seriously, my deepest fear is losing a baby.
-this week, i'm having a stress-causing break out. something you were dying to know.
-ann hathaway gives me the creeps.
-i spent the summer with over 1,600 teenagers, and loved every second of it.
-my vote will swing on the mormon side come november. 
-jelly beans are my most favorite candy.

what is your favorite song, and why?
my favorite song is called, i want the sky, by lucy schwartz. it is me, in a song.
how did you choose the name for your blog?
the name of my blog, in the garden of earthly delights, comes from a hieronymus bosch triptych. it is one of my favorite pieces because it embodies the things that we, as humans, worship. sinful, or not. i decided it would be a fitting name for the things i write about.
what is your favorite item in your makeup bag?
obviously, my tweezers. my brows would be a sad story without those boys.
if you could travel anywhere, where would you go? why?
i have a list. and next on the list is prague, czech republic. i want to cross the charles bridge and bask in all of its baroque glory.
cake or ice cream?
gelato. poire glace. tres magnifique! 
who is your best friend, and why?
austin william daw. because he makes me laugh harder than any other human on the earth. (are you all sick of hearing about him yet? well, too bad.)
what is your favorite childhood memory?
there is this picture of all of my brothers and sisters dog piling on my dad when we lived in oklahoma. i remember it, and i love it.
dogs or cats?
both. someday, i'd like an irish setter named phillip pirrip, and an orange tabby called mr. bingley. also, i'm obviously obsessed with british literature... can you tell?
what's your go-to funny youtube video?

let me just show you instead.
what do you want to be when you grow up? 
mrs. joshua radin.
why do you blog?
to preserve my sanity.
