Hande’s List

Freitag, 6. Februar 2009 um 8:27

This list came via email with the instruction: “Press FORWARD ‘ then change all the answers so they apply to you, and then send this to your friends including the person who sent it to you.” As I just couldn’t think of any friend I might want to send this to, I decided to publish it here.

1. What time did you get up this morning?
At seven, after having woken up half past four and not been able to get back to sleep. So much for my day off and sleeping in.

2. Diamonds or pearls?
Pearls, and very much so.

3.What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
The Curious Story of Benjamin Button

4. What is your favorite TV show?
Friends (Having liked one, I think I’ve done my duty by TV.)

5. What do you usually have for breakfast?
A large cup of café au lait and a large glas of tap water.

6. What is your middle name?
My parents spared me.

7. What food do you dislike?

8. What is your favorite CD at the moment?
You are witnessing one of the rare moment when I actually do have a favourite CD: Peter Fox Stadtaffe. Never heard anything like it. (They mean music, don’t they?)

9. What kind of car do you drive?
The non-existing kind.

10. Favorite sandwich?
Sandwich toast with butter and jam.

11. What characteristic do you despise?
Stupidity. I am convinced that all other annoying characteristics are based in stupidity.

12. Favorite item of clothing?
This skirt that I will order within the next weeks.

13. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
I’m very keen on travelling Israel and had been planning to do so this year Whitsun (no, I’m not scared by the political situation – the Middle East is never Arcadia anyway), but will have to attend an important week long seminar just around this time.

14. Favorite brand of clothing?
Does “second hand” or “antique” count as brand? I don’t even use the term “vintage” out of respect for the 30s, 40s and 60s clothes I covet.

15. Where would you retire to?
An early grave? If this doesn’t work out, Berlin and Brighton will have to do.

16. What was your most recent memorable birthday?
My 29th birthday when I sent all guests on a scavenger hunt through Augsburg. The main fun was in the preparation, but anyway.

17. Favorite sport to watch?
Formation dance. When coming home pissed after a night out.

18. Furthest place you are sending this?
Australia. (They do have internet there, don’t they?)

19. Person you expect to send it back first?
The usual suspects in the blogosphere. (Anke?)

20. When is your birthday?
22 August

21. Are you a morning person or a night person?
Definitely morning. Makes me feel like a rare animal.

22. What is your shoe size? or bra size

23. Pets?
As soon as I lead a live that allows for it. I could start with a guinnea pig and work my way up to a nice dog.

24. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share with us?
Haven’t had a bout of migraine for half a year!

25. What did you want to be when you were little?
Nun, astronaut, veterinarian, fire fighter.

Quite alright – it is my day off after all.

27. What is your favorite candy?

22 February

30. What’s your full name?
That’s classified information, but I can divulge that I have a second surname which is decidedly Polish (I normally don’t use it, Germans have a hard enough time with my first, Spanish surname).

Deutschlandradio Kultur

43. Chocolate or Vanilla?

44. Coffee or tea?
Coffee, then herbal tea, then more coffee

In the cinema, as per usual, four weeks ago.

Last time I checked just a little bit of dust (cleaning gentlemen come once a week).

48. What did you do last night?
Reading the internet and a detective novel.

49. What are you afraid of ?
O my, where to begin? I am afraid of embarrassing situations, and I am very easily embarrassed. By not meeting expectations, for instance. By apparently embarrassing others.

  1. Hande meint:

    Dankeschön. Wie fast immer bei ein Post von Frau Kaltmamsell, habe ich wieder einige neue Sachen gelernt. Das war auch Sinn der Sache.

  2. Cecily meint:

    oooh, Nostalgie. Diese Liste kursierte an meiner amerikanischen Uni vor etwa 10 Jahren.

  3. Lorelei meint:

    Die Antwort auf Frage 17 hat mich, bedingt durch Ihr eindeutig britisches Englisch, erst einmal verwirrt: Why would she be pissed after a night out? Bad date? :-)
    Ach ja, getrennt durch eine gemeinsame Sprache …

  4. die Kaltmamsell meint:

    Ach ja, Lorelei, mit dem Durcheinander pissed / pissed off hatte ich schon manchen Spaß.

  5. Buchfink meint:

    Was sind wir alle neugierig! Muss gleich noch im dictionary pissed/pissed of nachschlagen.

  6. Lorelei meint:

    Herr Buchfink, es handelt sich um ein BE/AE-Missverständnis:
    Ist man im Vereinigten Königreich pissed, dann ist man betrunken. In den Staaten ist man pissed (at someone/over something), wenn man auf jemanden oder wegen etwas stinksauer ist. In England wäre man in diesem Fall nicht pissed, sondern pissed off.

  7. mawa meint:

    Puh, eine lange Liste. Wenn ich mir trotzdem zu einem Punkt noch eine Anmerkung erlauben darf (Nr. 4): Versuch’s mal mit “How I met your mother”, quasi einer Fortsetzung von “Friends”. Das versöhnt einen mit dem tatsächlich eher schwachen Fernsehprogramm.
