Next up on our the UO Nice List, Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino tells us all about her Italian cooked holiday meals, her fear of eggnog and her love of Garfield the cat.
What do you love/loathe most about the holidays?
I love getting together with friends and family, eating and drinking—but I hate all the traffic it causes all over!
What’s your gift-giving style? Personalized presents, or a Starbucks card for everyone?
For my immediate family I put a lot of thought into what I'm giving, but I can't lie—for everyone else it's pretty straight forward gift cards, haha.
What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
A gold Chanel ring
What’s the worst gift you’ve ever received?
If you could ask for anything this year (and money is no object) what would you ask for?
What is your favorite holiday tradition that you share with friends or family?
I'm from a big italian family so instead of eating traditional "holiday" foods on christmas and thanksgiving, we always eat pasta and other italian foods, which I love.
What’s your favorite holiday snack or food?
Green bean casserole
Without looking it up, what are the ingredients in eggnog?
I have no idea! I'm so terrified of egg nog.
Any idea how you will spend New Year’s Eve this year?
I'll be in Australia!
If you could be any character from a holiday movie, who would you be and why?
Garfield from A Garfield Christmas. He's my favorite cartoon character; I love how lazy he is. That's pretty much what I do on holidays: sleep and look for food.
If you could plant a New Year’s kiss on your dream crush, who would that be and why?
Ryan Gosling. What a babe. I mean who wouldn't want to kiss him on New Year's?
What was your proudest moment from this past year?
Buying my home.
What are you looking forward to most about 2013?
Taking some time off from touring and writing new music and spending time with my loved ones.
