So! I've been tagged by Carrot from Bunnies and Stripes! Thank you Carrot for this opportunity to know you more and for me to get more personal to my readers!

11 random things about myself :

1 - I don't discriminate any kind of warm drink. I love coffee AND tea (and hot cocoa, and glühwein, and chicken soup, and chai, and...).
2 - I've climbed to an altitude of 5600m (in Bolivia).

3 - As a little girl I dreamt to sing in a musical.
4 - I shouldn't write this, but when I buy a present, I very often buy the same thing for myself (because I usually buy things that I really would like to receive).
5 - I love when people say I look like Pippi Langstrumpf.

6 - The song I had in mind all day long was Drôle de Vie of Véronique Sanson (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7h4tek7Xdw).
7 - I sometimes call my man 10 times a day (and he is so sweet he never complains).
8 - My role models are Simone de Beauvoir and Fridda Khalo.
9 - People overtaking in a queue drive me crazy.
10 - When I forget my season ticket, I'd rather walk 10 km than buy a one-trip.
11 - I am a huge procrastinator. I'll find the last random fact about myself tomorrow.

  1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting yesterday. How fun that your blog background is paper lanterns too. :) Oh and I also had the same dream as a child (of being in a musical). I would still love to do that! :)

  2. Hi! Thanks for passing on the award, I really enjoyed reading your answers :) And I agree with you about driving, it's not fun at all, specially when you scrape the car just getting it out of the garage... :s
