Credit for the idea of this meme goes to cleolinda. It's a mosaic meme done using Flickr and it's lots of great fun.
Here are the instructions:
01. Answer each of the questions below the cut using the [Flickr] search engine. (The search engine has been programmed by cleolinda to automatically search for the most interesting pictures. I recommend leaving it this way because the pictures are honestly prettier and well, what do you know, more interesting, too. :D).
02. Choose a photo from the first three pages.
03. Copy the URL of your favorite photos [here].
04. Then share with the world.
Here is my creation:
01. First Name: Ana Cristina. On the first page, I kept finding these pictures of some random babe on a beach in a string bikini. Yeah, like that would represent me. I hit jackpot on the third page - the black and white picture of the girl on the unicycle, keeping herself in perfect balance. I feel this matches me. It's no accident my zodiac sign is Libra, because I always like things to be balanced in my life.
02. Favorite Food: Pasta. I swear I was Italian in a past life! I could eat pasta all day long.
03. Hometown: Miami, FL. I may have grown up mostly in Hialeah, but I was born in Miami and I consider Miami my playground. I sometimes forget how beautiful my city is, but seeing pictures like this is like a jolt to my memory.
04. Favorite Color: Red. I like the shades of red where it looks like it's a blend of orange and pink. What would you call that, scarlet? Je ne sais pas, all I know is I've always been drawn to red.
05. Celebrity Crush: Ewan Macgregor. Enough said. :)
06. Favorite Drink: Amaretto Sour. And yes, the cherry is absolutely necessary, in my opinion.
07. Dream Holiday: Florence, Italy. I have never been to Italy and I'm dying to go. I think Florence would be my dream holiday because the city just speaks history and romance to me. I think the picture I found really captures that. Plus, it just looks really cool.
08. Favorite Dessert: Thai donuts. I hate all other types of donuts, typically, but the first time I tried Thai donuts in this thai restaurant near the boyf's house, it was love at first bite.
09. What I Want To Be When I Grow Up: A writer, actually a novelist, to be precise. I've written tons of poetry and short stories, but I would love to be able to write an entire novel. I picked this particular photograph because I first began writing with pen and paper, and sometimes I wonder if I wasn't a better writer before the computer came along.
10. What I Love Most In The World: Sleep! There is nothing I value more in the world, not food, not sex, not anything else. If I don't get at least 8 hours of sleep a night, I'm not a happy camper.
11. One Word That Describes Me: Impulsive. I know this is not necessarily a good thing - my impulsive nature more often than not has led me to make bad decisions, but it sometimes leads to great ones, too, like my boyf. :D
12. My LiveJournal Name: bella_stella78 I had to search using "bella stella," which means "beautiful star" in Italian. (No, it has nothing to do with Twilight!). I think the picture that showed up for my LiveJournal name is gorgeous. It's like a waterfall of stars.
