FIVE THINGS PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU:
1.I started teaching English as a second language when I was 17 and taught it for 7 years.
2.I love drawing. Mainly Women's clothes and abstracts.
3.I'm afraid of heights but love roller coasters.
4.I used to compete in swimming when I was younger and was pretty great at it.
5.Larissa means "full of joy" and my Jewish name, Sarah, has a similar meaning. It matchs my usual outlook to life.
Larissa Talks about her GUILTY PLEASURE
Hey there everyone. No, you are not mistaken and you did not tune into the wrong channel hehe. But we are not following with your regular programming today.
When Pat, the awesome author of this blog, asked me to come here and guest post, I felt really honored and said “Hell Yeah! I would love to.”. My second thought was “What the Heck am I going to blog about, Jeez”. Well, Pat gave me an idea and I’m going to run with it =)
Why don’t we talk about Guilty Pleasures? I mean, they are so much fun and the supposed guilt we feel from enjoying them is just extra spice to the mix, don’t you think?
I find that the term “Guilty Pleasures” might not apply to mine though. I’m not in the least guilty about it and when I think of it, I find it hard to point them out. However, I will definitely try.
First and foremost, I think my guiltiest pleasure would be, enjoying Paranormal Smut. Hawt Vamp loving as in the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R WARD or pure and primal Were Romance as in The Others Series by Christine Warren are just the right fit for it. All these books should come out with little fans as bonus, because I certainly need one whenever I read those books =)
Another guilty pleasure of mine is actually a confession of sorts. I LOVE gadgets, Digital Camera, iPod, Touch Screen Cell Phone and Blue Tooth, I consider them all my babies. I absolutely <3 them all. However, that is not my confession. The thing is that, I actually name them. Each of them has a name and I have rules to the naming process =P
It has to be the name of a fictional character from TV, Movies or Books and it has to be male hehe. So, my Laptop is Chandler, My Camera is Barney II (from the TV show, How I met your mother), My cell phone is Dimitri (from the Vamp Academy series) and my iPod is Nilik (From the Aspect of Crow trilogy). The only exception of them all is my blue tooth, that since it accompanies the cell phone, I have named Rose =)
I guess that is enough Guilty Pleasures for me. I hope you don’t think less of me for my quirkiness. If you do, I am sorry to hear, but there is nothing I can do about it =)
Thanks again to Pat inviting me over for this guest blog. You Rock Pat! Thank you all for letting me share and if any of you want to know and read more about me and my reviews, don’t forget to check out my virtual home.
