Sara har svart på våre sedvanlige spørsmål. Vi er særlig fornøyd med det alternative navnet hun syntes Oslo ville passe under: «Sexy People With Excellent Bone Structure Towne.»

Hårfarge Red! But really brown.
Hva drømmer du om? Literally, I dream sometimes about flying. Other times about losing my teeth. One is probably about success, the other about anxiety and failure.
Hva slags følelser kommer opp i deg når du hører ordet scrapbooking? I went through a scrapbooking phase. Then I realized I’d prefer to forget certain things, so I threw a bunch of old photos and mementos away. I feel better having fewer material possessions (although I still have many).
Du vinner 40.000 på Bjerke Travbane. Hva bruker du pengene på? I’d pay down my student loans.
Bor du, eller har du bodd i Oslo? Og hvor var det? No, but if I did, I’d live in a treehouse in the Botanisk Hage.

Spørsmål om

Om du ikke har bodd i Oslo, hvorfor ikke? I was born and raised in a magical wonderland of fatty foods called the United States.
Er du fornøyd med Oslo som hovedstad? Convincing? Absolutely. I’m convinced! It’s way more fun than Washington, D.C., which is absolutely boring. Except for President Obama, who is delightful and handsome.
Hva er det aller beste med Oslo by? It’s obviously Norwegian in character, yet so international. You can get any kind of food you can possibly imagine. Because I am an American, I eat a lot of food. A LOT.
Finn et annet navn på Oslo som også kunne hatt fungert godt, men som kanskje ville gitt oss en ny identitet.
