So! I accidentally went to my Spam Folder in my Inbox and saw an email from Formspring, saying that I have been asked a "new" question and to go answer the question "along with 6 others"! I'm so, SO sorry, folks, that I'd totally forgotten about Formspring! :) Am gonna answer most of them right now, k? A few of them will require a bit more thinking, so I'll do that tomorrow. Do check back soon for those, if you were the one who asked. (Remember that these questions are sent to me anonymously, so you're freeeeee to ask anything you want.)
Question: "How many languages do you speak"
Answer: Besides English, I speak Pashto (my native language) and Urdu (Pakistan's national language; learned it when I was there till I was 12). I'm learning Arabic and Persian currently, and I've studied a couple of years of Spanish--but am not fluent in it just yet.
Question: "What was your favorite toy to play with as a child?"
Answer: Hmm... I think that'd have to be the dolls girls used to make back in the day in Swat (where I'm from). I'll make some and show you pictures in the next blog or so.
Question: "If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be?"
Answer: What a great question! I actually do intend to have my own talk show one day, and so I've thought about my first host (not the first three ones) quite a lot but haven't come to a decision yet. At the moment, I'm seriously considering Begum Nawazish . . . I'll let you know for certain by the end of this week, though, inshaAllah, who the first three will be.
Question: "What is your favorite movie quote?"
Answer: Please see the next blogpost, titled "Favorite Quotes from Mona Lisa's Smile."
The other question that'll require some thinking is: "What was your happiest moment?"
Thanks for the questions, folks! Keep 'em coming! :)
