Great Topic!!
Great questions!

Pedicure-hate shoes so dogs are rough(ruff)...sorry.

Outlets

Cook/bake-both are bad..are chocolate chips supposed to start on fire while melting in the microwave?

Tent with husband, Hotel if kids are along.

Heels w/o husband, Flats w/husband(he's 4" shorter than me).

Drama-(I need ideas)

Cocktails!(My fave lately is a "Pink Panty Pulldown"

People

Retro!!!

1.manicures or pedicures
Neither. I can't justify spending the $$$ on such things. I know, I suck!  ::)
2.malls or outlet stores
Ugh! I'm a bit of a "guy" when it comes to shopping. Don't like either. I just run in, grab what I need and get the heck out!
3.bake or cook
Baking for comfort. Cooking for substance.
4.tent or hotel room
Hotel. I had a bad camping experience last year (let's just say that the bat died quickly!)
5.heels or flats
Flats. Heels hurt my screwed up legs...years of retail/waitressing (shin splints, tendonitis, cyst on ankle, etc.). Plus, heels would make me taller than my husband...hahaha!
6.chick flick or drama
Depends on my mood. Probably chick flick?
7.coffee talk or cocktails
Cawffee!!!! (I'm such a Seattle-ite)
8.InStyle magazine or People
Neither. I'm more the "Q" or "Mixmag" type.
9.retro or current music
Both as long as it's good.
10.high maintenance or low maintenance
Low maintenance. Of course, I'm reminded of that scene from "When Harry Met Sally" where they discuss the difference between the two, so maybe I'm high maintenance and don't know it?  ;)

So I'm gonig to inject a little Englishness into this list  ;)

1.manicures or pedicures
Definatly manicures (I own over 100 nail colours !) I've never had a professional one though I do my own. 

2.malls or outlet stores
Hmm, not too sure what outlet stores are we have outlet villages which are like loads of 'named brand' shops selling old stock cheap.If it's the same then it's the High Street and the Mall for me.

3.bake or cook
Bake I guess Mmmmmmm cake.

4.tent or hotel room
Dear god a hotel room every time my camping days are over and I never intend to return to them ! I need my creature comforts.

5.heels or flats
Depends.flats to work,and heels for play, but I tend to wear platform/chunky heels rather than stiletto's

6.chick flick or drama
Depends on my mood.I like both.

7.coffee talk or cocktails
Cocktails ! I have worked hard to perfect the Daquari.A forest fruit flavour one was my latest Yum !

8.InStyle magazine or People
I get to read all the women's mags at work(there are some perks to working in a library !!) so I get through Marie Claire,Company,She,Cosmo and Now.

9.retro or current music
Mostly retro though I do like some current stuff.

10.high maintenance or low maintenance

1.manicures or pedicures  Neither - never had one - cant stand people touching those parts of me !

2.malls or outlet stores  We now have entire malls of outlet and brand direct stores.  I kinda like them cos I am a cheapskate - but I actually hate shopping.  I order my groceries, clothes, dvds etc online !

3.bake or cook  neither - anything that takes me longer than 5 minutes to make means I should be in a restaurant !

4.tent or hotel room  Tent was for my girl guide days - 5 star hotels for me now !!!

5.heels or flats  definately flats - I roll my ankles and fall off heels (even half an inch !)

6.chick flick or drama  love both but a good ole chick flick wins.

7.coffee talk or cocktails  I dont drink coffee - could have a hot choc talk - but yummmmm cocktails.

8.InStyle magazine or People  I read Who - which is the australian sister mag of People.

9.retro or current music  more retro than current

10.high maintenance or low maintenance  hmmm as I pay for everything - I guess I am low maintenance.

1.manicures or pedicures - Neither. I find them both very boring, personally.

2.malls or outlet stores - Again, neither. I like to shop at more exclusive or one-off boutiques (well, the decent ones) which you can't find in shopping malls. And outlets usually sell tacky or damaged stuff. I'm very suspicious of outlets for this reason, even if they ARE cheap.

3.bake or cook - I can't really do either (unless boiling stock in a saucepan counts). Actually, I always considered baking just to be cooking in the oven. Guess that means I'm not a traditional female, lol. ^^

4.tent or hotel room - HOTEL. For sure. It's not the tent that's the problem (I don't mind tents, actually), it's the locations where they are commonly found (ie, the middle of nowhere).

5.heels or flats - Heels.

6.chick flick or drama - Neither. I go in for action movies. But I like dramas more than corny "chick-flicks".

7.coffee talk or cocktails - Both are great fun! Coffee for day, cocktails for night. :)

8.InStyle magazine or People - InStyle. But I'm not much of a magazine reader, usually.

9.retro or current music - Depends on your definition of 'retro'. But generally I like both.

10.high maintenance or low maintenance - Surprisingly, quite low. I have very expensive tastes, but I don't expect other people to cater to them or pamper me. I'm capable of taking very good and luxurious care of myself!

  1.)I think manicure--tho' I've never had one professionally done I care more about my hands than my feet.
2.)  well the collaboration of the two-- an outlet mall is very cool if you can find one.
3.) Ah, the everpresent question of food.  I think it is more satisfying to be able to cook food rather than just be good at baking.  Although I can do both well enough to suit my family.
4.)  um, well if a cabin isn't an option then hotel room.  I'm still young enough to not be overly inconvenienced by a tent, but i'd rather not be in one for more than a night.
5.)flats.  The only time i wear a heel at all it is usually no more than an inch and a half. Modesty made me....
6.)  chicken??  hahaha. No,sorry. I had to.
I prefer action/adventure actually, so I will vote for drama.
7.)  on this category, sorry, neither appeals to me at this moment.
8.)  I wouldn't know.  I'll have to see a copy of both to give my opinion which I'd prefer.
9.) Retro--with a little current music in the mix for the sake of  enjoying what's available.
10.)  ME? Am I high or low?  I don't know.  I guess I'm medium low.  I'm opinionated about my clothes, tho I don't follow fashion and that saves cash on my very small budget.  I understand the differnce between "need" and "want".  Anybody else understand the subtle difference??
And I am easily amused.  I don't mean tickle =laugh, I mean give me a book and I will be quite happy. Power outage? fine, as long as the portable radio works it's not a total loss talking with loved ones by candlelight and remembering old tunes.

We have those kinds of outlets too - where the stuff is mostly crap - but the posh outlet malls are for designer named products and its basically all their stock left over from the season just gone.  So the $140 shoes that you wanted in the normal shop last month are now half price.


2.malls or outlet stores – ironically, I dislike shopping :P

That it is BMGirl. Though, even moreso in my previous job. Then again, being paid to shop with somebody else's money made it just  that little bit more bearable  ;D

Neither.  (I don't think I've even heard of InStyle, before.)

Both.
