Welcome to It's A Lamb

Two blogs, three blog names and five years later, I've realized that I am very indecisive when it comes to how much to share or not to share on my about page, so I decided to conduct a short interview with myself that I hope will give you enough info to continue your journey through this site.

*tape begins*

Is that thing on?


So we're rolling?

"Uh huh..."

Okay make sure you get my good side.

"This is a tape recording, not a video."

Okay, then just stay on my left. I sound better from there.

"So, what is It's A Lamb ?"

Baaa! Baa. Baaaaaa. Baaa! Ba. Ba!


It's a play on my own name.

"Which is?"

Strictly on a need to know basis, which you don't need to know.

*tape stops*

*tape starts*

It's Alexandra Lambropoulos.

"What is the blog about?"

A little bit of this and a whole lot of that.

"So what's it really about?"

Well, the blog is sort of like a snowglobe, but instead of snow swirling around, it's a bunch of words and ideas and pictures swirling around. And instead of a little snowman, probably named Frosty, it's just me. Making that face. This one. Right here. *


Because it's cold. I'm in a snowglobe.

"I see. Can you tell me more about yourself?"

Totally. But I express myself best through acrostic poems.

"That's really not neces-"

- I'll keep it short.

is for Adventurous (but only before 8pm, I also like my rest)
is for Lackadaisical (because it was the word I messed up in my 7th-grade spelling bee and it still makes me upset to this day)
is for Édith Piaf and Eartha Kitt (two of my favorite singers)
is for Xylophone because nothing truly interesting starts with X other than that.

"Okay... how about your favorite quote? I know how you feel about those."

Currently, I'm loving:

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." ~ Maya Angelou

"That's definitely one of my favorites as well."

I should hope so.

"Last but not least, how can others (businesses, bloggers, friendly individuals, pen pals, etc.) contact you?"

They can email me at itsalambblog@gmail.com 

"That's a wrap!"

Hey! I thought you said this wasn't a video!

*tape ends*


But seriously, I am passionate about the arts, the environment, food, and urban planning. In my spare time, (other than blogging) I enjoy baking and travelling, photography and watching way too many classic movies and musicals. I also host a podcast called Urban Limitrophe where I highlight innovative and creative projects transforming cities across Africa (and occasionally a little closer to home).
