Just another baton?

Sunday, April 23. 2006

Seems like it is time for some questionnaires again… Nils asks me to answer a few questions – so here we go:

  1. Take the book next to you, go to page 18 and quote line 4:
    !Ojo con el perro! – Vorsicht bissiger Hund! (Unluckily no English book, but my Spanish-German Grammar-Book)
  2. Reach out as far as you can with you’re right arm – what can you grab?A pack of chili powder which leans against one of my speaker boxes.
  3. What was the last TV-Show you watched?
    Depends on whether you only count real TV, or the TV programme you can get out of the Internet. Real TV: Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers. Internet: Alias S05E11
  4. With the exception of you’re computer, to what are you listening atm?
    Christina Stürmer - Wirklich alles! [Live Wiener Stadthalle] cd1 Track2 – Geh nicht wenn du kommst.

    On Friday to watch Final Destination 3 with a friend

    I was sleeping.

    A beige/khaki pyjama
  8. Did you dream last night?
    Not that I could remember, but I don’t think so.
  9. When was the last time you had to laugh?
    Guess at sometime yesterday talking to friends at the Feki.de Chat.
  10. What occupies the walls of the room, in which you are currently sitting?
    The only remarkable thing is a flag of Selangor.
  11. Did you see something strange lately?
    Klabusterbeere is in my Feed-Reader – any more questions?
  12. What do you think about this questionnaire?
    It starts to bore me.
  13. What was the last movie you watched?Final Destination 3
  14. What would you buy if you’d be rolling in money?
    I’d probably try to buy my own university ;-)
  15. Tell something about yourself, which I don’t know yet.
    I’ll be driving home to my parents to have lunch later.
  16. If you could change one thing at our world, what would that be?
    That’s a hard one… But I think I would try to enhance the tolerance of the people somehow.
  17. Do you like dancing?
    I used to like it, but somehow I lost track of doing Standard-Dances.. so the only thing I can do sometimes looks like Murder on the Dancefloor ;-)
  18. George Bush
    Go to question 16.
  19. If you’re first child was a girl, how would you call it?
    Definitely not Suri. But I really can’t tell.. Guess I’d prefer something traditional like Katharina or Maria.
  20. And if it was a boy?
    I don’t have a clue.
  21. Would you see it as a possibility for you to emigrate?
    Sure. There are other beautiful places on this planet!

    Hi old lad – is my deckchair at the beach ready, yet? And are the cocktails chilled?
  23. Five people you want to answer this questionnaire:

Questionnaire 2005

Thursday, January 12. 2006

Sabine had a stick to throw around by posting her personal questionnaire, and although I’m not a friend of those self-projections I will use it to reflect a little on the last year. See also the (German) questionnairs of Sabine and Nils.

  • Gained or lost weight? – Neither (Although I gained some 2kg being in Malaysia, I seem to have lost them again).
  • Hair – shorter or longer?Longer, definitely. Although during the year my cut was quite short.
  • Short-sighted or far-sighted? – Applying to my eyesight everything still seems to be perfect.
  • Spent more or less than 2004? – Malaysia was quite expensive – so I spent more money.
  • Most crazy plan in 2005? – I honestly thought that I’d have a chance in university politics.. but politics are rarely led by pragmatic aspects.. - Guess I'm to pragmatic.
  • Most dangerous undertaking? – From a European point of view many of my undertakings in Malaysia might be regarded as dangerous. But there was one incident when I was driving home from partying in KL, when our driver wasn’t as sober as he should be.. I think this was the only moment when I didn’t feel safe in .my
  • The best Sex? – I won’t comment on that issue in public.
  • Most expensive acquisition? – EOS 350D
  • Most delicious meal? – Hard to say.. I ate so much different delicious things in Malaysia. But there was this duck dinner with plenty of garlic and chilli… I think I’ll put this first.
  • Most impressive book? – Neal Stephenson – The Diamond age. Although I read this book already a few years ago I find it still impressing. It covers a vision of e-learning which is most interesting.
  • Most moving movie? – Actually there are two movies that come into my mind. The first one is War of the Worlds. Although the story is kinda incredible the pictures where really moving. The second one is Sex and Lucia. Dirk recommended that movie to me, and he was right the unclear story is definitely something that keeps you thinking.
  • Best CD? – "Morcheeba - The Antidote"
  • Best Concert? – It was no conventional concert but the Revelation trance party in Port Dickson was a great experience.
  • Spent the most time with...? – People: Dirk, who became a real good friend! Activity: Writing this blog while exploring Malaysia
  • Spent the best time with...? – Germany: Susann; Malaysia: Dirk
  • Dominating feeling in 2005? – Curiosity.
  • Did for the first time in 2005? – Windsurfing.
  • Did again after a long time? – Swimming in the ocean
  • Three things I could very well have done without? The most dangerous undertaking from above, ???, ???
  • Most important thing I wanted to convince somebody of? – Globalisation is unstoppable, and Germany has to move on to compete efficiently.
  • The best present I gave to someone? Probably the Crazy Frog CD I bought in Bangkok and gave to Claudia. It was a real good way to give someone a present.
  • The best present I got from someone? – A tiny espresso cup.
  • Nicest sentence that someone said to me? – Idiomatically translated “You are a great guy.”
  • Nicest sentence I said to someone? – Don't know.
  • 2005 in one word: – full of experience (in German this is really one word)
