Super Punch Interview: Esti

(Super Punch interviews are posted every Monday. Please read the bottom of this post if you'd like to participate.)

Meet Esti aka Loopy:

1. What is your idea of the perfect day?

Going to a foggy remote village and finding a totally unsafe trail up a mountain, complete with rickety wooden bridges, super tall ladders, and spooky tunnels... a'la Indiana Jones! (with the obligatory brews afterwards at a local watering hole). Or playing Marie Antoinette Tea Party with friends. :)

2. Describe one of the best moments in your life:

How about several connected moments? As in, wandering around Europe on a train and foot, wandering around USA in a car, wandering around cities looking for cool interesting things... and of course wandering around the internets! I love the sense of finding something new that I never would have found/experienced otherwise. I am a certified culture vulture.

3. What is your most common nightmare?

Zombies! WTH? It's always about getting me & fam to safety. Pretty terrifying! I blame Romero. I will give a shiny quarter to someone who could explain it to me!

4. What are your three favorite possessions?

My Bubbie's engagement ring, she had wonderful style! My demonic kitty, Tika. She knows just where to punch me in the eye in the morning! And all my graphic novels ever touched by Neil Gaiman, James Jean, Grant Morrison.

5. What is your goal for 2011?

Survive another year of grad school, travel to Cambodia (see Question #1 part 1), and do all those Arts & Craft projects I have waiting for me! Me = SLACKER.

6. What super power would you most like to have?

The ability to Start/Stop time! I'm pretty sure I started fantasizing about this in kindergarten. Mostly I just wanted to stop time so I could go play outside. It was the starting time again that always got me, because after playing outside, why would I ever want to start time and go back to class? Obviously I was not a good at pay attention in school.
