1. I never really cared for Tom Cruise or his movies (except Magnolia!) but I always admired his ability to run fast. His little legs going like drumsticks.

3. I weighed 1800 grams when I was born which is really quite amazing when you think of what I weigh now.
4.  I never liked science fiction or fantasy movies or books but I have read Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga – all 4 books –  about 7 times. And am rather embarrassed about it.

9. I wish I looked more like Beoynce.

14. My feet are beautiful, though large.
15. One of my favorite things to do is traveling. I don’t like the transportation-part of it, though.
16. When traveling, one of my favorite things to do, is visit local supermarkets. I love to look at all the tins, jars and cans, their vegetables, breads, meats, fish,  how they display things, the smells, the sounds.
17. When I was 5, I got a brother, who was born 2 months premature. I asked my mother: “Why does he look like a monkey?”
18.  Sometimes I just want to get away from myself.

23. I love edible flowers.
24. I don’t really like rock music.
25.  I love the old man in “Four Weddings And A Funeral”, who is perpetually pissed off. Hugh Grants character introduces himself to him and says: “How do you do, I’m Charles.” He answers: “Don’t be ridiculous, Charles died more than 20 years ago”. Hugh: “No, no, I’M Charles!” Man: “Are you saying, I don’t know my own brother?” Later, when asked “Bride or groom, sir?”, on his way into a church wedding, he answers: “It should be perfectly obvious, that I am neither!”
26. I don’t really care to visit India. Or China. Too many people and germs. And prejudices?
27.  I think about death every day.
28. If I could have lunch with any historical person, it would be Jesus. Not because I’m into bread and fish but because I’ve got questions.
29. If I could have lunch with any living person I wouldn’t know whom to choose.

33. I don’t keep up with what is happening in the world because the news are so depressing.
34. The best book I ever read is “East of Eden” by John Steinbeck.

    Dear Charlotsky,
    I can’t help but wonder if your last name is “Trotsky”? Charlotsky Trotsky, that would be quite a name.
    Thank you for your comment, I do appreciate it. Also thank you for the link. I saw the video and laughed out loud.
    Yes, farts ARE funny.

    Actually, if we put all the times I’ve laughed over this video, it sums up to about a couple of days:
