L: How do you keep up with the news?
F: I mostly listen to NPR. Honestly, I don’t really like the news, so I keep my exposure to it at a minimum.
L: What’s your favorite style trend of the moment?
F: I am pretty into the turban trend. I know it’s a bit last year but peeps in Los Angeles are sporting them. I use a bandana and make it into a faux turban sometimes. I think it’s fun.
L: Do you have a bike?
F: Nope, but I am in the market for one. I really miss being able to walk everywhere in NYC. In LA, you get the feeling that you could bike a lot if you had one.
L: What’s something you’ve learned over the past few days?
F: I am on day 24 of my 40 day mental detox. It is about subtle mental shifts toward creating greater happiness. I have learned that when you make someone special (especially yourself) you create an unrealistic imbalance in your relationships. It is awesome to see everyone as equal.
L: Do you think it’s funny that we pose these questions to each other every week?
F: I think it is funny, however I like it. We usually ask each other questions that we wouldn’t actually ask each other directly when we are talking on the phone. It keeps me updated on things that I care about in your life. Plus, I miss you.
