Peter_fra_Oz Thursday 14th of September 2006 11:05:50 AM Random Questions (Season 3): Starting from the end of Season 2:
Posted by Psyche
Just before sleeping...just stretching out and thinking about my loved one :)
What is the best meal you have ever eaten?
The ones made with love :) I swear I can cook the same exact thing as another but it always tastes better for some reason when it is cooked for me :p
How many sheets and/or blankets do you sleep with?
nena77 Thursday 14th of September 2006 01:53:22 PM Even in the summer I have at least a sheet; this season I sleep with one sheet and one blanket; in heavy winter I have a thick duvet plus one or two blankets... ;)
How many books have you read in the past year?
Danial Thursday 14th of September 2006 02:49:10 PM Hmm... completely? :p Maybe one or two... :p
Are you a bookworm?
Vasiliki Thursday 14th of September 2006 03:35:11 PM Yes,I guess I am. And I hope I'll be able to write my own book:)
Do you believe in destiny?
Osman Thursday 14th of September 2006 03:55:47 PM Yep, i do believe in.
What about you?
Vasiliki Thursday 14th of September 2006 04:08:35 PM Yes, I do (geçen yıldan beri):)
Which is the most important aim in your life?
nena77 Thursday 14th of September 2006 06:13:23 PM To be happy and to have a healthy and balanced life, for me and my family and my loved ones. At the moment I am trying to find a job I will be happy with. :)
Where do you plan to spend your next holidays/vacation/days off? [whenever that is]
Marja Thursday 14th of September 2006 07:22:52 PM Australia :)
How many rooms does your house have?

Which city where you born in?
jvz8a Thursday 14th of September 2006 07:48:34 PM In San Salvador, El Salvador's capital.
Do you have ay suggestion to make profit of my incredible ability to be annoying? Can I get cash in some way from this "gift"?
nena77 Thursday 14th of September 2006 07:59:10 PM In Greece you could have a television show where you invite 3rd class celebrities and ask them about their love life and take their boyfriend's part and also invite their mother to the show, their grandma, their neighbour, their primary school teacher etc and have a useless show with gossip and actually make LOADS of money... But there is a lot of competition in Greek TV at the moment from similar tv shows ...
How many people have you fallen in love with so far?
Joe Thursday 14th of September 2006 11:12:10 PM a few... most were bad mistakes, to be sure.
Do you think "outside the box"?
(for those not familiar, this is a term used that means "thinking in unconventional ways")
Ania Friday 15th of September 2006 12:01:50 AM YEah.
Did you know there's a hypothesis that the Lake Baikal is a future ocean?
Joe Friday 15th of September 2006 12:22:28 AM Yup, I have heard of this before. I think it's the only lake in present history that is still growing (which is where that hypothesis stems from).
What do you dream of when you sleep?
jvz8a Friday 15th of September 2006 12:56:41 AM I normally don't remember what I dream. The last was about an earthquake while I was at home. But... it was not even a nightmare. I remember I was very calm (even though it was a strong shake) because I was thinking of Natalie.
What do you usaully watch on TV?
Joe Friday 15th of September 2006 01:01:29 AM There's really not many shows anymore that I watch routinely. But - I'm a sucker for historical documentaries about almost any era. Lately, there's a show on the History Channel called "Lost Worlds" which is quite good. And - I'll admit that I can get sucked into watching some of the reality TV shows, like Survivior.
What's the one constant thing in your life?
Laydee Friday 15th of September 2006 03:40:45 AM Misery...
If you could live a day,doing whatever you wanted,what would you do`?
Joe Friday 15th of September 2006 03:44:49 AM I'd be on a research vessel, doing oceanographic research somewhere.
What's one job you would NEVER want to do?
Petra Friday 15th of September 2006 05:44:54 AM There are many, everything that gets me in contact with dirt or with diseases.
Why do you like PB?
jvz8a Friday 15th of September 2006 05:48:02 AM Two reasons:
1. So many incredible people around.
2. So many incredible pople around crazy about languages :p
What is next to your computer right now?
alina Friday 15th of September 2006 05:53:29 AM My cat. She's playing with one of my pencils. :)
What are your plans for tomorrow?
Joe Friday 15th of September 2006 06:56:52 AM Wake up, get both my sons breakfast, get my older son off to school... if I'm lucky, have some time during the day to get some chores done around the house. Nothing big...
What's the oldest thing you own?
Ulven Friday 15th of September 2006 08:09:01 AM J'ai une clé que ma mère m'a donné qui est de la dix-neuvième siècle. La pauvre, ma maman, parce que je ne veux pas des enfants à qui se passer la clé. Mais je le donnerai à les enfants de mes frères si ils ont des enfants. En vérité, ma mère n'est pas trop sentimentale à propos de la clé, bien... :)
I have a key from the 1800's which my mother passed down to me. Poor mum, I'm not intenting on having children. Not that she was especially sentimental about the passing of the key, really. But I will pass it onto my brothers' children if they have some ever. Spawn, brothers! Spawn! :)
As tu fait jamais de la méditation? Et l'aimes-tu?
Have you ever been meditating, and do you like it?
Grinner Friday 15th of September 2006 11:58:31 AM No, can't say that i have done that... it's rather a catch-22 thing... i heard it's a way to achieve innner peace, or peace of mind... but my mind's full of 'things' constantly zooming around so when i try and calm the 'things' enough to shut down, i pitifully fail. doesn't matter... i actually like the experience... god knows my life wouldn't be anywhere as exciting if the voices weren't there... *shut up... i'm finished already*
Anyone noticed that their saved messages in their inbox are gone? Did you get a memo on that? Or is it again just me?
jvz8a Friday 15th of September 2006 12:04:49 PM I didn't think you'd mind me deleting them! Did you need them? Well... let me see if I remember what they were about... *thinks* :p I know I wasn't going to be able to memorize 1273 saved messages!:p
I also lost them. Except one. Weird.
I am going to bed now. Any advice?
Grinner Friday 15th of September 2006 12:45:48 PM Okay then... as long as... *thinks... what's the english word for malapetaka?* ah... tragedies don't only happen to me. as long as someone else is miserable too, i'm okay. thanks for the uh... solace javier ;) now if you told me you misplaced your wallet/atm card/piggybank as well, that would be absolutely perfect!
Yes. Never, ever assume that mangy, tired looking mongrel across the street won't chase you if you yell at it to go away. Okay, don't throw a stone at it, either. Apparently chucking a stick at it is the last straw.
Did you ever wish you owned one of those cool old phones where *stay with me now* the rotary keypad and earpiece is one piece, you know... the keypad is at the bottom of the stand and you pick the whole of the thingy up to answer calls. got me? *sigh* ...concentrate and pick up the psychic vibes i'm sending you... now you get it?
nena77 Friday 15th of September 2006 01:38:29 PM No, but now that you mentioned it I wonder what it would be like... :p
Have you ever got so drunk that you do not remember what you did and have other people tell you your exact movements? [if yes, please tell us your movements :D]
Petra Saturday 16th of September 2006 07:19:35 AM No, sorry, no funny stories of stupid things I did when I was drunk because I've never been drunk in my life.
do you sleepwalk?
jvz8a Saturday 16th of September 2006 07:32:31 AM Everyday... until I go to sleep :p
How much do you weight? :p
sanibel Saturday 16th of September 2006 07:44:10 AM Javier! What kind of question is that? Would you think differently of me if I weighed 200 pounds? tisk, tisk *wagging finger under your nose*
okay... enough... :p
What size shoe do your wear?
Ania Saturday 16th of September 2006 12:57:31 PM 37 and 1/2 in Europe but in US it's 5 and 1/2.
Do you believe in the Mayas' foreboding that Armageddon is going to be on 24th of December 2012?
Psyche Sunday 17th of September 2006 06:13:39 PM No. Besides, no-one is going to destroy the world while I am opening my Christmas presents!!!! *GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR*
Where were your hands 10 minutes ago?
Ania Sunday 17th of September 2006 06:54:10 PM In my pockets :D
Have you eaten croquettes?
Psyche Sunday 17th of September 2006 10:42:18 PM Croquettes? Depends? :p If you mean the French sandwhichy thingies..then, yeah :p Not sure if I ate the guy or the woman :p Wasn`t too bad...but not YUMMY either :p Weird cheese :p
Have you ever eaten bugs, like Javier has? :p
Yes, my new goal in life is to burn Javier on PB! :W
jvz8a Monday 18th of September 2006 05:41:38 AM :O
No, I haven't!!!! :p (A)
lol What is wrong with eating a healthy tasty chinicuil? Can somebody tell me? Okay, for those who have no idea what I am talking about, here they are:
I was afraid of eating them too! But when I did... I just had to admit they are TASTY!
Do you want some? :p
nena77 Monday 18th of September 2006 01:32:45 PM Thanks, but I think my diet starts THIS monday :p
Do you have a nice tasty sauce that goes with it?
Osman Monday 18th of September 2006 04:10:51 PM yes! many different kinds! easy to find here :)
Why people want to lose weight? (me included :D)
Psyche Monday 18th of September 2006 04:12:10 PM Shut uuuup :p
We are NOT promoting bug-eating here on PB!!! :p
I take back my promise...I WILL NOT TRY THAT!!! :p
I have started my diet today :p
All bug-eaters should receive professional help?!!!! :p
Psyche Monday 18th of September 2006 04:13:54 PM We want to lose weight because we are fat, right? :p
Why is Osman "dieting" when he is already slim?! :p
Osman Monday 18th of September 2006 04:14:43 PM that is not something related to you :p
(try (A) ) :D
Why are some people so rude? :) XD
Osman Monday 18th of September 2006 04:16:53 PM i am not slim :D
Psyche Monday 18th of September 2006 04:21:19 PM Who is rude? I don`t know anyone :p
What is rude? :p
Osman Monday 18th of September 2006 04:23:08 PM i think it is a person not something :p
Are you rude? :D
Psyche Monday 18th of September 2006 04:25:35 PM No!! :p
Is Osman rude? :p
Osman Monday 18th of September 2006 04:30:25 PM is he? (A) :p
What does a person should do to be rude? :D
Psyche Monday 18th of September 2006 04:36:25 PM Saying that others are rude :p
Do you know whether you are rude or not now? :p
Osman Monday 18th of September 2006 04:40:19 PM i am not :D
Arent you bored with this topic? :)
(i replied you in my blog :D, lol about my niece)
mattie Monday 18th of September 2006 04:55:17 PM Yes, I'm bored of reading who is rude and who is not. I don't know what it has to do with learning another language...
Have you listened to another language other than your own being spoken today?
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 18th of September 2006 05:11:30 PM Yes, Turkish! and lots of it :)
I decided to spice things up and talk only Arabic phrases back :p
The boss is Turkish so I called him moruk :) I think its better than ashkum? (spelling?)
TPBM is also a little devilish elf at times :)
Marja Tuesday 19th of September 2006 02:31:06 AM Hehe, well you would know! ;)
And you're in the wrong thread Peter :p haha
Is random questions morphing into TPBM?
helene Tuesday 19th of September 2006 03:16:32 AM It seems these threads get confused quite often. I guess it adds a little ... uhm, extra challenge to the game when you always have to check if the person before you is playing the right game. :p Suddenly we're playing the wrong game for a while.
Does it matter? :D
jvz8a Tuesday 19th of September 2006 10:16:11 AM Of course it matters! If I do that, Nat kicks me, even if it is HER fault! :p
TPBM wants to play TPBM in the right thread :p
Joe Tuesday 19th of September 2006 10:48:47 AM nah...let's break the rules a little bit. Oh - to be a rebel! :p
Random questions or TPBM?
jvz8a Tuesday 19th of September 2006 10:54:58 AM lol :p
If I knew what game this is...
Joe Tuesday 19th of September 2006 11:04:32 AM then you'd probably be ahead of the rest of us! :p
The award for most mixed-up thread goes to...
jvz8a Tuesday 19th of September 2006 11:09:12 AM ... mmm... I don't know! this is a tough one!
Name your three candidates for that award!
Joe Tuesday 19th of September 2006 11:25:40 AM 1) nylon thread
2) cotton thread
3) polyester thread
Don't you wish someone else (maybe TPBM) would name their candidates instead?
jvz8a Tuesday 19th of September 2006 11:34:33 AM No, Djou. Llu jaf don a greit llob. Bot llu can guif llor candideits tu Danial, bicos ji is ze guan duin zat zis monz.
And when the rest of the players read from the last post they did...
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 19th of September 2006 12:09:08 PM Heh :) hard to set up servers and 18 new client computers and hop around the desks and keep my mind straight at times :p
Are you a better manager of multiple tasks than I?
nena77 Tuesday 19th of September 2006 05:44:25 PM I think so, if not, I prove wrong all scientists that say women are better at multitasking than men. Still, you might be a genious multitasking person, how can I compare???? ;)
Can you cook delicious meals??
mattie Tuesday 19th of September 2006 05:53:07 PM No, I can't cook. :S
Non, je ne sais pas cuire. :S
Have you been to a zoo?
Vouz avez été au zoo?
nena77 Tuesday 19th of September 2006 05:55:22 PM Yes, great experience I must say.
What is the most delicious foreign speciality you have eaten?
mattie Tuesday 19th of September 2006 06:00:29 PM Je n'ai pas mangé beaucoup de nourriture étrangère parce que je ne suis pas immergé dans d'autres cultures touts le temps.
I haven't eaten a lot of foreign food because I am not immersed in other cultures all the time.
nena77 Tuesday 19th of September 2006 06:09:42 PM Oh gosh, where can I start... The Pasanda and Corma dishes [indian], paella [spanish], a garlic-potato-vegetable soup served in a bread [Czech Republic], some mid-european goulash, fantastic... I cannot choose one, to be honest..
So then, what is your favourite food from your country's cuisine?
Osman Wednesday 20th of September 2006 12:48:52 AM well..not one.. hmm.. i love dolma most. Also some sweets :)
Which country would you like to visit most and why?
Joe Wednesday 20th of September 2006 01:08:15 AM There are so many... but probably the one I've wanted to visit the longest time (since I was very young) would be Australia. The oceans fascinate me, and what better place to experience them than the Great Barrier Reef.
Have you read a book that made a big impact in how you think about things?
nena77 Wednesday 20th of September 2006 01:43:19 PM "1984" by George Orwell. Shockingly ahead of its time and it makes you really think. Strongly recommended.
What is the most dangerous thing you want to do/have done?
Psyche Wednesday 20th of September 2006 11:37:19 PM Driving :p I already crashe dinto a car...but luckily, it didn`t leave a mark..that was not fun. And...I have been in many nearly-hit-by-a-big-truck many times :p In a month, I will get my license at least :p
jvz8a Thursday 21st of September 2006 01:21:49 AM Be with Nat WHILE she drives the car :D :D If I close eyes... might I feel safer? :p
Why Natalie passes on so many questions? :p
Psyche Thursday 21st of September 2006 04:45:49 AM Because the questions are good! More rarely, because I am in a hurry or I am just lazy or maybe I also lack imagination!
Why do you love it when I am passing on? (A) :p
Joe Thursday 21st of September 2006 10:11:52 AM Because you usually do pass on some really good questions that I like answering.
What if everyone put a letter after their posts like Natalie does with the (A) after hers?
originally posted by Psyche
Why do you love it when I am passing on? (A)
BTW- I have no clue what the (A) stands for Nat - I've just noticed it in several of your posts! lol
Petra Thursday 21st of September 2006 03:44:21 PM there will probably be a lot of confusion in all the fora.
I also had to ask, Joe, and if I remember right (A) stands for Agnelface and (k) for kiss. they are msn-shortcuts.
Do you use any other of the msn-shortcuts in the PB-fora?
mattie Thursday 21st of September 2006 05:00:30 PM I just use obvious ones such as :) :D and :p ;)
Is it difficult for you to think of questions for this game that are on the subject of "language-learning"?
Psyche Thursday 21st of September 2006 10:21:36 PM Yes, it is! The interesting ones have been asked 1000 times before..not that I really mind asking them again.
You agree with Joe starting to use MSN, right? (A) :p
Yes, "(A)" is a MSN short-cut for an angel`s face :p
Joe Friday 22nd of September 2006 10:32:02 AM No... no MSN for Joe. I used a few of the messenger programs before, but don't even remember my IDs anymore - it's been a long time since I've talked on them. I may get a new Skype ID to talk to some students and friends in Russian though. (I do remember, Scott - I just have to get my butt in gear and DO it! :p )
Do you remember the first foreign word you learned? (in any language, not necessarily your target langauge now)
jvz8a Friday 22nd of September 2006 11:03:09 AM Joe... please! I don't remember the LAST word I learned! :p
Do you have a good memory?
Tyrrena Friday 22nd of September 2006 11:17:01 AM Yes, i remember quite well: the very first words i learnt were nonno (grampa in italian), and of course the feminine, nonna, (grandma). When at 3 or 4 i became aware that nonno/nonna were not the Spanish words for grampa / grandma i was rather confused, so far i had thought those words were my language! and i was eager to confirm if the words were abuelo/abuela ( grampa/grandma in Spanish), i think i heard them said by another kid.
As my case is a bit special, i´ll leave the same question for the next person, ie :
Do you remember the first foreign word you learned? (in any language, not necessarily your target langauge now)
Tyrrena Friday 22nd of September 2006 11:20:21 AM sorry, double post ... would Nat write (A) here? :D
So next question is : Do you have a good memory?
nena77 Friday 22nd of September 2006 01:35:17 PM Yes and no, sometimes I can remember even the tiniest piece of information; other times I cannot remember what I had for breakfast. :hihi
What is your favourite colour?
Psyche Friday 22nd of September 2006 05:57:12 PM I would write "(A)" there, yes! :p
White! Or...no, red! And baby blue! And baby pink! And also "mossy" green! And some certain type of purple and brown! Chocolate brown. Oh, yes, GOLD AND SILVER!
Mmm..yeah...one of those :p (A)
What is your best TV experience? :D
jvz8a Friday 22nd of September 2006 07:00:52 PM Still waiting for it, baby! :W
What time is it? Is it not late now?
Joe Friday 22nd of September 2006 07:47:24 PM No - it's relatively early here now.
At what time does "late" become "early"?
Psyche Saturday 23rd of September 2006 12:29:03 AM At 04.00-05.00 (am, for you American people *pokes tongue*) :p
What is the hottest language, in your opinion? :P
Julianita Saturday 23rd of September 2006 02:03:33 AM ?! lol
Portuguese ... i REALLY like the phonetic and the accent, specially in guys :p
will Nat stop spamming the forum??:D
Ania Saturday 23rd of September 2006 03:29:27 AM I'm afraid she won't. :p
What does your mom do?
mattie Saturday 23rd of September 2006 03:46:01 AM As a job? My mum owns a boarding kennel. People bring their dogs into the boarding kennel when they go away on holiday and my mum provides safe, extremely clean accomodation for them. It involves a lot of cleaning, feeding dogs, running them etc.
What about your mum?
Joe Saturday 23rd of September 2006 04:12:11 AM My mom's retired, she get's to do her own thing now.
Did you ever eat paste (ie: children's glue) when you were a kid?
Psyche Saturday 23rd of September 2006 04:24:52 AM No :p I only nibbled it (A) :p
Wasn`t too bad either :p
Have you eaten garden flowers before?
mattie Saturday 23rd of September 2006 04:32:15 AM Oh yes! Before I started school, I went to Mangapai Playcentre and we used to pick the flowers from the gardens and prentend to cook them on the "play" stove and eat them. Eww. :p It's funny, my mum told me that story a few days ago, and then you go and ask that question. :p
How do you say "he is a vegan" in another language?
Psyche Saturday 23rd of September 2006 04:35:22 AM Han er veganer :p Norwegian :p
Yeah, strange!! :p But....you know about my psychic abilities..so..:p
What is your best habit?
jvz8a Saturday 23rd of September 2006 07:26:57 PM I think I don't have.
Have you ever used your target language on the phone?
Tyrrena Saturday 23rd of September 2006 07:58:44 PM Yes, both Italian and English.
When was the last time u said "i can´t stand him/ her or this"?
jvz8a Saturday 23rd of September 2006 08:07:21 PM I didn't use those words... but.. yeah.. that was the idea. Yesterday. This guy has already reached the limmit. He is my friend.. but.. I need a time without him calling me.
When was the last time you went swimming?
Laydee Saturday 23rd of September 2006 08:30:36 PM Umm....that was probably several years ago.
What's your plans for this week-end?
Petra Saturday 23rd of September 2006 10:33:16 PM I don't have any plans for the weekend. My grandma is visiting us tomorrow and I promised to bake pancakes which are her favourite dish.
Oh, and I have an online 'date' with a penpal from the USA this night, he will be talking (over microphone) to me in German for the first time. I'm looking forward to this but I really wonder if he's already nervous :p
In which colour is the house painted you live in?
Tyrrena Saturday 23rd of September 2006 10:51:02 PM We haven´t had it painted because it´s the type of house built with red bricks to be seen (i wonder what the term to express this is!!:) btw, does anybody know the english for those kinds of walls of which u can see the bricks (like in English houses)?
What was your reaction on learning about Steve Irwin´s death?
Petra Saturday 23rd of September 2006 11:01:52 PM who was steve irwin? oh, googled for his name, the crocodile-guy. well, it's very sad, because he leaves two young children and his wife but according to what I've heard about the way he did his work it wasn't very surprising... :(
What do you think about his daughter willing to continue his work? (hopefully not in the same risky way)
Laydee Saturday 23rd of September 2006 11:03:23 PM I was shocked and sad that such a good-hearted and lively person should die in that way.:(
Are you interested in arts?
Tyrrena Saturday 23rd of September 2006 11:14:47 PM Laydee: Yes , i love art in general, creativity amazes me.
Petra: I think it´s sth normal for the girl as both parents have been the business.
Do u believe in Hell?
jvz8a Sunday 24th of September 2006 12:01:24 AM Hell, NO! :p
How's the weather now?
Petra Sunday 24th of September 2006 01:32:19 AM good I think as it has been the whole day. I guess I could see a lot of stars if there weren't too many street lights etc. around.
Have you already bought something online (like on ebay or amazon etc) or do you think the payment-methods aren't secure enough yet?
jvz8a Sunday 24th of September 2006 01:39:22 AM I have. My first experience in that was a videogame :p Ciao Bella :D
Are you a videogame geek?
Petra Sunday 24th of September 2006 05:43:02 AM bella? who? me? or hoping that Nat is going to answer your question.. sorry, I have to disappoint you, it's only me :p
No, I don't like videogames. The last time I played a video game was when you still could buy games for the first game boy and when the NES was quite new. After that I only played computer games but nowadays I don't play any games (except on pb)
would you like to design your own video game?
jvz8a Sunday 24th of September 2006 06:05:42 AM Ciao Bella is the name of the videogame!
To design one? It'd be cool!
How do you feel right now?
Psyche Sunday 24th of September 2006 06:11:38 AM Ciao Bella is the game he bought me for my birthday :p
But Petra...I really think you are beautiful.
Not really. Or...why not :D I`d design many weird things :D
If a book or a movie would be made about your life...what would it be called?
Psyche Sunday 24th of September 2006 06:13:04 AM I feel OK.
Petra Sunday 24th of September 2006 06:32:26 AM okay, edited this post a bit and several times ... ;)
the book... perhaps: The glas was always half empty or missed opportunities or FEAR
and I'm okay but tired, going to bed now before I misunderstand more things because I'm too tired to think
what is this game about (ciao bella)?
leobloom Sunday 24th of September 2006 06:50:31 AM maybe it's about how to get girls :D
even though I suppose it's the other way round:
have you ever painted you face and/or body?
Anya Sunday 24th of September 2006 07:04:09 AM I think you are right, that seems to be the topic of that game! ;) Guys could get pointers on how girls think.. heh!
To answer your question, yes, I've painted my face and body.
For running track, we had to paint numbers for relays, and our relay team would put the Cinderwomen design on our calves.
I painted my face whenever I was in a Haunted Forest production in Vermont to raise money for the Audubon Society. Every year around Halloween, we would make historical (creepy but fun) skits around a 5 mile stretch of the woods and kids and adults would come by and laugh and enjoy the shows.
I haven't played in here for a long time, so what was the neatest question in this thread to date?
Joe Monday 25th of September 2006 06:19:38 AM They are all interesting.
Do you brush after every meal?
Isabel Monday 25th of September 2006 07:09:31 PM Yes, all the time. I don't like to have my teeth with something stuck. :D
Do you usually comb your hair?
Psyche Monday 25th of September 2006 09:15:56 PM Yeah :p Everyone should do it :p In my case, I have to..I have the biggest hair ever (yes..it is BIG..FLUFFY!! :p)....if I don`t brush it....well...:p
What is your name?
Joe Monday 25th of September 2006 09:18:25 PM Shhhhh... it's a little-known secret, but my REAL name is Randolpho Alexander Louis Otumbo Francisco William.... Jr.
Who believes me?
Danial Monday 25th of September 2006 09:28:27 PM ME! :D :D :D
At least it's better than my friend from San Juan, :D You must know my good friend. Pedro Martinez Hernandez Hector Elizondo. :D
Don't you know him? :D
Julianita Monday 25th of September 2006 09:39:40 PM er... no! but i think i know his sister, Maria del Perpetuo Socorro del Valle Olivares. :D:D:D
she is so nice right?? :p
Danial Monday 25th of September 2006 09:45:42 PM Yes, of course! :) I've also met her husband too :D. Timmy! :D
Have you met Timmy? :D
Joe Monday 25th of September 2006 09:47:49 PM Timmy from the cartoon South Park? TIMMMAH!!!!!.
No, never met him. :p
Do you like whole milk, or the other kinds (2%, skim, etc - is that just an American thing?)
Isabel Monday 25th of September 2006 09:48:15 PM Oh yeah, I know him. Isn't his cousin, Maria Perpétua Leopoldina da Conceição. She was my friend at school. :P
What a great family! isn't it?
Danial Monday 25th of September 2006 09:51:09 PM lol :p
Lovely family! :D
Well, have you met the parents? :D
Julianita Monday 25th of September 2006 09:56:06 PM I think at the same Anya's halloween fundraiser, her dad was chasing me with a jigsaw and her mom was trying to feed me with poisoned apples....
have you been EXTREMELY scared almost to pee on urself? :D
Joe Monday 25th of September 2006 09:58:12 PM No...never quite that scared. My bladder contol is pretty good, even in times of extreme duress.
What are we talking about? :p
Danial Monday 25th of September 2006 10:00:24 PM Ummm... San Juan? :D
Shall we all go to San Juan one day? :D
Isabel Monday 25th of September 2006 10:02:17 PM Why not! :D
Where's that? :p
Psyche Monday 25th of September 2006 10:06:11 PM Ehh....Brmexspain? :p
I love Timmy`s song :p Very cool :p
Am I right, or what!? :p
Danial Monday 25th of September 2006 10:07:31 PM Right.... :p lol
What did I just say :p ?
Psyche Monday 25th of September 2006 10:14:48 PM Right? :p
Isabel Monday 25th of September 2006 10:17:15 PM ein? :p
Julianita Monday 25th of September 2006 10:17:28 PM right, San Juan is indeed right around the corner of Nat's house, yup.
Psyche Monday 25th of September 2006 10:29:42 PM CORRECTO!!! :p
How did you know that! :p It was MY SECRET!! :p
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 26th of September 2006 07:07:45 AM Alright everyone, chicken with rice tonight at Natalie's house :)
I'm psychic; well I seem to have psychic bonds to a few people :)
Did you ever have something happen like that which made you stop and think?
jvz8a Tuesday 26th of September 2006 07:59:20 AM Yes :( Weird things happen when one is crazy.
Have you ever read a book "... for dummies"?
Joe Tuesday 26th of September 2006 08:05:00 AM Yes... and I'd like to write a book in that series as well. How about "How to Read the Dummies Books" for Dummies... I'm definitely qualified, being a dummy :p
OK, who's got all the candy?
Peter_fra_Oz Wednesday 27th of September 2006 12:35:00 PM Not I; prefer meat and veg. Too much sugar and I feel like I am poisoned.
Where are all my pens, and why do I have so much trouble at my desk keeping them?
Osman Wednesday 27th of September 2006 01:40:28 PM if i had known the answer, my desk wouldn't be just like yours :p
Why do we like pb so much?
Psyche Wednesday 27th of September 2006 04:38:36 PM Because the people are nice and it is a nice environment to learn languages.
Mainly the people though :p
When is your birthday?
Peter_fra_Oz Wednesday 27th of September 2006 05:02:32 PM January 3rd, Capricorn :)
Will you send me something on my birthday?
Psyche Wednesday 27th of September 2006 05:10:17 PM If you give me your address, OF COURSE!!! *hugs*
Will you give me your address? (A)
*preparing evil plans*
Peter_fra_Oz Wednesday 27th of September 2006 05:46:49 PM Sure, check your PM
Anything else? ( Of course you're welcome for dinner anytime :P )
Psyche Thursday 28th of September 2006 12:13:51 AM Chocolate chip cookies from Marks and Spencers....BEST COOKIES EVER!! BIG and yummy!! Fresh baked every day! Bring them to me, Peter! På forhånd takk! :p
Are you drooling at the moment? :p
Joe Thursday 28th of September 2006 04:51:26 AM Nah... I don't have problems with excessive salivary responses
Do you like having your photograph taken?
jvz8a Thursday 28th of September 2006 10:23:12 AM mmm... not really. I prefer Nat's pics, but she likes it even less than me :p
Is it normal to get an emial... and feel your heart melts because of the word said in it? :( :W
Tyrrena Thursday 28th of September 2006 10:35:27 AM It´d be normal for any sensitive person, i guess.
Have u received many text messages today?
Grinner Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:00:30 AM Eh... none today, as yet... but it's still early... i'll bet they'll start err... rolling in any moment now... (Yeah right... dream on, self) Erm... fancy sending me a text message then? ;)
What's the song playing on your stereo/mp3 player/computer/sound-maker thingy right now... Or better yet... *evilgrin* Just Before that? (god, i need to be evil-ler)
mattie Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:01:04 AM No, nobody has sent me a text message today. :-/
Have you sent many texts today?
*EDIT* - too slow!! :( Uhm, I'm currently listening to "Tellement N'Brick" by Faudel on my computer.
My question still stands ;)
jvz8a Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:03:56 AM Today I didn't send anything. My sister lost her phone.. and she has mine right now.
And... I am not playing any music right now. Before that? The same. BUT... someone special (guess her name ;)) sent me a couple of songs... *downloading*
What do you do to get a random question to ask?
Grinner Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:30:33 AM I pray to the Random gods, obviously... is there any other way? ... but the Gods being Random and all makes it a frequently confusing affair, with different incantations not to mention different sacrifices required for each... like i was dancing the divine dorittos dance for God X and typically, by random God Y came in and required i build him a giant head on an obscure island somewhere... which i had a problem with since it's like, been done to death and also, i find God Y a bit demanding... which probably explains why I have a hard time coming up with answers...
... you don't want to know what is required in the The person below me thread, believe you me...
I am grinning from ear to ear after getting a PM from a long-lost PBer... no i know it's not a question... just saying cos i am grinning from ear to ear after *sigh* you know...
In a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the number 7?
jvz8a Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:43:36 AM lol :D
To let things in a fair way... let's give it... a seven! :D
Who can be that long-lost PBer? :p
Tyrrena Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:44:22 AM 10, as it´s my birthdate !:)
When´s ur birthday?
Tyrrena Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:45:54 AM ops, double post, double task for TPBM!:p
Grinner Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:52:18 AM heh...
Javier, *wink* wouldn't you like to know mate... let's just say the first part of her name rhymes with "Dru" and the last part rhymes with errr... Kanashta... *cr*p!* errr... anyways, it's long-lost to me, and i'm jumping for joy!!! (not literally though... i kinda twisted my ankle yesterday so no jumping for a few days).
Tyrrena The date of the the Grand introduction of moiself to this wonderful but smoggy world is ah... wouldn't you like to know... i'll give you a hint... the day is between 13 and 15... the month rhymes with err.. Luly... and the year is... Heyyyyy!!!!
The person below me is getting confused... or i know, i know... it's me. (wait, did i answer that question myself... bother)
jvz8a Thursday 28th of September 2006 11:55:42 AM Well... She is long-lost, sure :D
Confused? Yeah... kind of. I thought this was Random questions :p
Am I right about that?
Grinner Thursday 28th of September 2006 12:09:04 PM What? Are you implying that I am Wrong? Impossible... Out of question... If by chance the thread's topic reads something else, it obviously must be some coding/server/database error... Javier you know better than to suggest something as silly as that? anyways, i'm sure the admin will fix that error soon...
The Person below me err... surely agrees with me.
jvz8a Thursday 28th of September 2006 12:14:31 PM LOL
That's why I said I thought...
mmm.. you know... I know I can be this wrong! It happens so often on MSN with that girl named N.......................... <3 :D
To be sure I play well:
1. TPBM will post a question as if we were in "random questions"
2. What game does TPBM want to play?
Grinner Thursday 28th of September 2006 12:26:15 PM *...weird... now javier's confusing Me!!!* :D
... heh... i have no idea how to proceed, even though this IS the The Person Blow Me thread, here goes...
By game, do you mean PB games or like, non-PB games? oh wait, that's a question... I'd like to play 'hide-and-seek' actually... i tried teaching my 2 year old daughter that recently, she lost the plot and i ended up waiting almost 10 minutes in the closet only to find out she was happily playing with her bicycle outside... come to think of it, i probably wasn't that bright to wait 10 minutes either :)
Are you comfortable with the metric system or the... you know... the antithesis of the metric system? (imperial system?)
jvz8a Thursday 28th of September 2006 12:58:20 PM I was thinking about PB games , yes... lol
I know Natalie will read it and thing "Javier was acting suspicious again!" lol But it is not my fault!
About the metric system... I was born with it. Maybe the other one is better.... I think a numeration system based on 12 (instead of based on 10) would be more practical... except for that little detail that we have (the normal ones, I mean) only ten fingers. BUT if we had 12... definetively base 12 would rule!
TPBM.. please look at your hands before answering:
Do you still count ten fingers? Are you sure you don't have those two missing so my dream of a base 12 system can become true? :p
Petra Thursday 28th of September 2006 07:11:15 PM yes, I only have ten fingers and I'm quite happy about that 'cause I don't know where on my hand would be enough place for an Extra-Finger. And everything would be more expensive with 12 fingers, more fabric would be needed for gloves, more nail polish, manicure would be more expensive...
but what about 20 fingers... if you drink enough that might be possible :p
so, what are the mathematical advantages to the base 12 system? I don't see any (but I'm a mathematical zero and probably too used to the metric system to be able to see any advantages)
jvz8a Thursday 28th of September 2006 07:47:41 PM Ten can be divided only by 1, 2, 5 and 10. Twelve, by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12. That's a 50 % increase. This would make basic operations simpler to carry. But, as in the fingers' case, we'd need two new numbers. There'd be no sense in a 12 base system... and still using the base 10 one.
In fact... in our watches we use it every day. And those watches also have the base 60. And modulus system. So... watches are quite complex! :D
Would you support a reform so we can have 12 fingers (despite of disadvantages mentioned by Petra) and, therefore, we can practically accept the base 12 system? :p
Joe Thursday 28th of September 2006 10:52:55 PM Are you kidding? It would mean we'd have to figure out where two more little piggies went for the "This Little Piggy" game played on our toes. The balance of the universe as we know it would be all askew! (I hope that game is not just an American thing - otherwise people will be wondering what on Earth I'm talking about! :p )
What games did you play as a child?
Danial Thursday 28th of September 2006 10:57:52 PM lol, this little piggy :p
Well, I'm still a child (sort of :p) and I play too much games, :p hence can't list them here :p
What is your favourite game?
Petra Friday 29th of September 2006 05:20:30 AM when I was a child it was a game called kniffel (5 dices and you had to toss them and try to get as many points as possible by either having the same number as often as possible or by getting a 1,2,3,4 and 5 or other patterns) or 'Mensch ärgere dich nicht' (ludo in English?)
Nowadays I don't play any games (except on PB) and the game I hate most is Tabu (which my friends unfortunately are very fond of, so that I can't avoid playing it once every two years).
Have you ever played Tabu? (two teams, one of each team has to explain words to their own team without using 5 words which are generally the best ones to explain the word)
Joe Friday 29th of September 2006 05:27:00 AM I have played it before... but generally, I'm not very "into" games like that. I don't know why, it was fun - just not quite my style I guess.
What's your favorite sweet treat?
Peter_fra_Oz Friday 29th of September 2006 01:25:15 PM Good question, I don't have one. Not being a big sweet tooth in general my favourites are contextual to location, what I am doing, people I am with, etc. If I were to generalize I would say I have a particular weakness to Arnott Tim Tam bickies :) but only the original chocolate version - not a fan at all with most of the new flavours.
Why does tea stain your cup more than coffee?
Joe Saturday 30th of September 2006 01:27:06 AM Well, I don't know that answer definitively, but I can make what I think is a fairly educated guess. I do know that tea plants (leaves) tend to have higher concentrations of tannins than most other plants. So - I'd guess that is probably why you notice that tea stains the cup more than coffee.
Do you consider anything you know to be "useless knowledge"?
Marja Saturday 30th of September 2006 04:18:19 AM I would consider rather a lot of what I know, useless knowledge :p Sometimes I can be quite a fountain of useless information hehe
What's the most adventurous thing you have ever done?
Joe Saturday 30th of September 2006 04:53:23 AM I'm not sure. After you do some things, they kind of cease to be "adventurous". I've bungee jumped, gone SCUBA diving, I've swam with sharks (when I worked at our local zoo/aquarium). All of them seem not so adventurous to me, now that I've done them.
Were you educated in a private school, public school, or home school?
Tyrrena Saturday 30th of September 2006 09:02:21 AM In a private one.
Would u send ur children to the same school u used to attend (or are attending at present)?
mattie Saturday 30th of September 2006 09:16:56 AM No, if I ever happen to have children, I will never put them through the misery of having to attending the school that I currently go to.
Osman Saturday 30th of September 2006 01:32:26 PM No way! O_O
Why don't you like the school where you were educated?
Marja Sunday 01st of October 2006 04:28:38 AM I actually liked the school I went to. It was a pain when I was there but now that I'm no longer there I kinda miss it. I spent 7 years there and some of my most wonderful memories and bestest friends came from my time there :)
What's the longest time you have been in a particular school for? (like some people have been to several)
mattie Sunday 01st of October 2006 06:02:13 AM I've only ever been to one school. It's an area school, so that means that it has students of all ages. It's quite small though, only around 400 students. But to answer your question, I've been going to this school for 11 years.
How about you?
Psyche Sunday 01st of October 2006 05:50:15 PM Seven years, in primary school. But all the schools I have went to (primary, lower secondary and upper secondary ) lies maybe 100 meters from another :p
What do you think of your life so far?
jvz8a Sunday 01st of October 2006 07:42:31 PM That you came and brightened it.
How many words do you think you know (I mean... master) in your target language?
Psyche Sunday 01st of October 2006 09:29:27 PM Maybe 100 actively. Maybe 150 altogether. But if I say English is my target language...then I guess I know some thousand words. Well, thousand sounds so much...but if people say you need to know 2000 words to know a language okayly..I guess I know a few thousand then :p
What languages are you relatively fluent in?
jvz8a Monday 02nd of October 2006 02:43:11 AM Spanish, English and Esperanto. mmm.. maybe Spanish is the one I know better of them :p
What's your phone number? (only last digits, please:p)
Marja Monday 02nd of October 2006 05:04:15 AM 6060 last 4 digits of my mobile, I don't use our house phone :p
What time did you get up today?
jvz8a Monday 02nd of October 2006 05:23:40 AM At 06.30, as almost every day. I am used to this, so... I have no problems with it, even if I go to bed at 01.00.
Do you talk with the cabdriver when you take a taxi?
Isabel Monday 02nd of October 2006 05:31:36 AM well, I have to tell him where to go! :p
Well, the Portuguese taxi drivers always like to talk, so it's impossible to avoid that. :)
Do you usually walk to work?
Laydee Monday 02nd of October 2006 06:03:59 AM Well,if you can call school work,then sure:)
When was the last time you..hmm..went to a circus?:p
jvz8a Monday 02nd of October 2006 06:35:33 AM Ages!!! I mean... AGES! I remember back then a bill of $50 was a lot of money. Maybe as much as a bill of $1000 today. Or... maybe I felt it was a lot of money because I was a kid? Anyway... it was ages ago.
Do you feel as old as you are?
[mmm.. weird question. what I mean is... do you feel you are as old as you are or as if you were older or as if you were younger?]
Joe Monday 02nd of October 2006 06:48:27 AM lol... depends on the day. There are times I feel younger than I truly am. Most days though, I admittedly feel older. I think most of it is due to stress though, rather than physical things.
When was the last time you found yourself in an argument?
jvz8a Monday 02nd of October 2006 06:51:54 AM mmm... maybe yesterday? :( *sigh*
Do you think you are good at speaking out your feelings?
Joe Monday 02nd of October 2006 06:58:46 AM Actually, no... not at all. I'm finding that about many things, I tend to just keep to myself and allow other people to have their way, often as a way of avoiding an argument. I'm trying to change that trend however.
What one belief do you hold that no one can change your feelings on?
jvz8a Monday 02nd of October 2006 07:11:24 AM THE one belief is about Natalie.
does it happen to you (as it happens to me) that when you need your computer (or printer [specially the printer!!!] or scanner or fax or telephone) the most... it simply goes through a period of "I hate the user" mode?
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 02nd of October 2006 08:23:45 AM No :) but I feel your pain :p In the end I think you can always use a big stick to get the device to work ;) I love the scene in Fawlty Towers where John Cleese, playing the enraged Basil Fawlty, thrashed his car with a tree branch when it stalled for the 100th time :) :) :)
How cute! they even made a toy from it! :p
What side of the road do you normally drive on? (key word being the word "normally" :p) ?
mattie Monday 02nd of October 2006 11:24:08 AM I always drive on the left hand-side of the road.
How about you?
Psyche Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 12:32:29 AM Right side, of course :p Nothing else makes sense :p
What colour would your dream car have?
Marta Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 01:10:49 AM black, I guess...
Do you remember the last time you were crying?
jvz8a Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 01:44:16 AM yeah... too close...
What do yuo think "Sov i fred" means? I understand it... but... :(
Psyche Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 03:35:32 AM It means "rest in peace".
Why is the world a crappy place?
jvz8a Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 03:43:39 AM I know it means that :(
And.. I don't have answer for the next questions :(
What about TPBM? (that was a random question).
Petra Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 04:55:10 AM hm, I'd say the world is a crappy place because life isn't fair.
Any suggestions how we could make the world a less crappier place?
Marja Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 05:03:42 AM If we could teach people to be nicer to each other and cooperate instead of blowing holes out of each other all the time. Why can't the world be more like PB for example? We have here a community of people from all over the globe and we can get along with each other regardless of faith and nationality, yet on a larger scale in the world we can't seem to manage it. Maybe someone can figure it out one day :p
How many pillows do you need to sleep with?
Petra Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 06:29:12 AM I have a big one and a smaller one in my bed but I guess I would sleep equally bad without the smaller one.
If you could chose your pb-name again, would you chose the same name again?
jvz8a Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 06:42:59 AM :D
No. :D It could be Nat's Javier (so obvious) or sayqeeh (not so obvious) :p
Why is it raining right now?!
Joe Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 06:44:37 AM because the amount of humidity in the air has reached a critical point at which the clouds cannot hold it any longer.
What's was the first pet you ever had (or if you haven't had one yet, what would it be)?
jvz8a Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 06:49:05 AM My sister does not count as pet, right? :p
So many years back she had a cat. A cat we ended hating, except her.
And... if I am lucky... mmm... what about a boa? :D :p (A) lol no? Okay.. it could be.. mmm... *thinks* a tarantula? .p lol I think I won't have any :D
Have you played at the lottery AND actually won something?
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 03rd of October 2006 09:11:02 AM Yeah, actually well, not lottery per say. I won something once at a convention from one of those wire barrel things they put your ticket in and spin around and pull out the tickets and award prizesnothing I really wanted mind you :p I gave the prize away.
What is the most adventurous thing you ever ate?
Tyrrena Wednesday 04th of October 2006 09:06:44 AM a kind if small crab called "siri" or sth, in Brazil. You eat the soft belly, of course it was cooked, but anyway i I remeber and go aggg!
What ´s the meal u remember and go aggg! ?
Grinner Wednesday 04th of October 2006 09:10:35 AM Okay i am probably the least adventurous food-consumer-wise person to answer this question, but i'll give it a shot anyways. lessee, it's probably have to be the cow lungs(?) i had when i was ate. being very picky of what i ate even from small, my mum laid out a very dodgy-looking fried beef-resembling dish in front of me one mealtime. on enquiry, she said it was just ordinary fried beed, so i had one and boy, was it yummy so i kept eating it from then on. only later on did i spot the exact same dish in a restaurant somewhere and it was labelled... cow lungs!!! i have not touched it since, no matter how yummy it was. kimchi is another strange thing i was introduced to. haven't touched it since too. you guys have no idea how picky i am, especially when it comes to food :)
Do you find yourself going into a 'pre-determined' pose every time you are about to have your picture taken? i mean, probably like turning your face slightly so your (hopefully) better side can be taken? ;) or the same smile every time? or, god forbid, the ubiquitous 'peace' sign i.e. the V fingers. Or maybe you just go with whatever position you were currently at?
Peter_fra_Oz Wednesday 04th of October 2006 12:09:38 PM Ha! oh god no :D
It is a pet peeve of mine that everyone has those god awful boring standard photograph poses all the time. I like to be different, more natural and try to capture people at moments when I am behind the camera where you can see them alive and full of a special moment.
Do you catch and release outside the bugs and pests in your house/office or do you just squish them?
Grinner Wednesday 04th of October 2006 02:36:21 PM I fancy myself (actually, that is a normal sentence for narcissistic me right there :)) as a nature-loving, Greenpeace-ish kinda guy, so yes i do take extreme care not to intentionally harm any kind of insects, bugs and other miscellaneous living things. which in a typical day is kinda hard since i am a cleaner by profession(!) so i come across spiderwebs a lot. i figure it must've been very amusing for the clients to see me shooing/capturing each and every spider i come across instead of just vacuuming them up. nowadays, i just let the grunts do that... :) ...but not all bugs get such treatment. nasty cockroaches are instantly vaporised, as are mosquitos, flies and uh... house lizards (non-bug, that).
Do you keep turtles as pets too? And if you do, care to tell me what their... environment is? i mean, do you have a nice habitat for them to live in? I'm just asking cos i don't think my turtles' uh aquarium-like thingy is very turtle-habitable. i tried asking the pet shops but they weren't very knowledgeable either.
p.s. oh and if this just gets a curt 'No' answer, i will scream... uh or more likely a manly shout :P
Joe Wednesday 04th of October 2006 11:56:09 PM No ( waiting for Grinner's scream...ummmm, "manly shout" :p )
Actually, I've kept turtles in the past, and worked with some marine turtles ages ago in my days at the zoo. The habitat depends on the turtles you have. My box turtles could be kept in a regular terrarium-type habitat - some moss, a few plants, a water bowl for drinking. Aquatic turtles obviously need water - our North American Red-Eared Sliders prefer an aquarium that's mostly water, with a ledge or something for them to climb on every so often. Marine turtles... well, if you're keeping those, you may be in trouble with the authorities - most are protected species. :p
Can you sing well?
Laydee Thursday 05th of October 2006 12:08:09 AM Ehem...Not really!:D That is why I have come to the conclusion that I should enter the metal-business. I can't sing properly AND you don't need good looks:D:p
What do you think about frogs as FOOD?:p
Joe Thursday 05th of October 2006 01:31:40 AM I'll admit, I've tried frog's legs before. I wouldn't say they were a preferred food item of mine, but they weren't bad either.
How old were you when you said your first words?
nena77 Thursday 05th of October 2006 03:39:04 AM I will not consider the words "mama" and "papa" etc which are merely simple sounds made by the babies. My first real word was "papoutsi" meaning "shoe" in Greek and was utterred when I was 16 months old [or so my mom told me].
What was your first word?
Grinner Friday 06th of October 2006 10:32:30 AM Hmmm... if memory serves me correct, I believe it was... What's in a name? that which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet... what? not likely eh? I swear it's true, but you must understand i was a slimy cranky baby just then, and in baby talk it came out somewhat like this "BWaraaaaaaaarGggGgghHhhHhhh...."
What part of the face (or anywhere else, you dog you) of the person you are speaking to do you tend to look at... uh while speaking to said person? ... for me, previously it was the nose till i learned (through possibly dubious sources) that it should be the left eye (i have no idea why... dubious sources aren't very good at details)
jvz8a Friday 06th of October 2006 12:12:08 PM I've noticed I look at one eye. I don't know which one. But... I tend to look at the other eye if the conversation lasts too long :p
dubious source of this post: me :p
What is the last (okay, not the last, but the most recient) UNhealthy food you ate? (or... for more normal speak, change "ate" for "are eating")
Ewa-Anna Friday 06th of October 2006 02:56:08 PM Hmmm... I guess I ate about 10 pieces of WISEŁKI yesterday... that can't be healthy...
OK - CULTURAL NOTE: Wisełki are a kind of sweets - if I had to chose a popular name for them I would say they are cakes cover in chocolate - inside the chocolate cover there are two kinds of filling - one tastes like truffles and the other is just plain cake (fat, flour, egg, baking powder) - there are two layers of each: truffle, cake, truffle, cake - yummy :-)
by the way - the name comes from the name of the largest Polish river - Wisła :-)
By the way - as far as I remember from my anthropology classes, when you talk to somebody you usually look them in one eye first, than the other eye, and then the nose. If the conversation continues, you go back to the eye you started with... Who cares to research this??? ;-)
If you wanted to paint your bedroom walls some new colour, which would you choose - pale sea-green, or lilac-purple (yeh, yeh, I know it's silly, but I'm planning some redecoration...)
Ania Friday 06th of October 2006 05:55:55 PM pale sea-green. it's a warmer colour and not as wild as purple so you shouldn't have nightmares :p
Whaat's your favourite kind of dance?

It's "A rose by any name smells as sweet." ;)
Hmm... :p lol, I don't know. :p
What was the latest joke that you heard? :D
Tyrrena Saturday 07th of October 2006 03:41:16 AM OmG, i´m hopeless at remembering jokes.. (and many other things :p)
No, no, however hard try , i cant recall any, though i do remeber sb told me one this week!!....who was it...?
Do u find puns on words enjoyable?
Joe Saturday 07th of October 2006 07:33:31 AM occassionally. If it's a new pun I have't heard yet.
Do you like meerkats?
Ulven Saturday 07th of October 2006 12:20:40 PM Javisst! De är verligen roliga. Jag älskar hur de har en 'nightwatchman' som står upp på en trä, och når där är fara, de alla står upp sammans, att se over horisonten. Min mor älskar dem också. (Swedish)
Of course! They're such funny little critters. I love how they have a nightwatchman who stands up on the highest tree, keeping a look-out, and when there's danger signalled, they all stand up together looking into the horizon. My mum loves them too.
Vilka djur, som är inte hemdjur, är dina favorita att iakkta på televisionen?
Which non-domestic animals are your favourites to watch on television?
Osman Saturday 07th of October 2006 03:42:55 PM eagles (i am not that picky about it though)
Can you dance Salsa? :)
mattie Saturday 07th of October 2006 04:11:31 PM No not at all! I can't dance. :D
Non pas du tout! Je ne sais pas danser. :D
Can you dance?
Ania Saturday 07th of October 2006 04:17:04 PM Yes, I can dance. :) And I love dancing.
Can you dance tango? I mean the real Argentinian tango. :p
Danial Sunday 08th of October 2006 07:41:40 PM No, sadly, but it would be cool if I could :D
Would you like to dance the tango, if you could? :D
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 08th of October 2006 10:32:19 PM Oh yeah! :) and all the hot dances too! :p
Whats your favourite nibbly snack?
mattie Sunday 08th of October 2006 10:47:02 PM If I'm hungry I'll just grab a packet 'a chips out of the cupboard to munch on. :p
Baby_J Sunday 08th of October 2006 11:00:10 PM Fruit.We usually have fruit around the house because of my religious alter and we regularly replace supplies.
What colour socks are you wearing,and if you're not-then what colour would you be wearing?.......tough question I know-don't hurt yourself.
Isabel Monday 09th of October 2006 02:11:48 AM Actually the socks I'm wearing are very colourful: with yellow, blue, white, orange and purple stripes.
Does that relate to the way I see life? :p
nena77 Monday 09th of October 2006 02:24:32 AM Yes, I really do think so :):):)
I still wear socks with bugs bunny and bart simpson pictures and also some really cute short socks from "calzedonia" with stripes, with bees, ladybirds, pink and orange dots etc etc. They make me smile, they make everyone smile. It's nice :D:D:D
What's the weather like where you are at the moment?
Psyche Monday 09th of October 2006 04:51:33 AM Very dark and chill. Resembles my current mood :(
Where were you born?
jvz8a Monday 09th of October 2006 05:12:22 AM In San Salvador.
What is in your pockets right now?
Marja Monday 09th of October 2006 05:21:47 AM Left pocket is empty and right pocket has a key in it
Are you just wearing a t shirt or do you have a sweater on aswell?
jvz8a Monday 09th of October 2006 05:53:29 AM I should wear that sweater.But no... still not so cold now. I had one in the morning. Like at 11.00 it was too hot for wearing one. And... it seems soon I'll eed it again.
What is the longest you can be without listening to music?
Marja Monday 09th of October 2006 06:03:55 AM Hah maybe when i'm asleep :p
Where do you keep your house keys when you're at home?
Joe Monday 09th of October 2006 06:29:00 AM On the key rack, of course ;)
What kind of soup do you like to eat?
Vasiliki Monday 09th of October 2006 03:55:46 PM Lentil soup is my favourite.
What's the view you see from your window right now?
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 09th of October 2006 05:09:37 PM Pitch Black Night :p Had to spend time in the CBD tonight after work so tonights ride home on the train felt like winter time with it all dark outside as I sat watching the silhouettes of trees and houses go by.
passing on... What is the view you see from your window right now?
Joe Monday 09th of October 2006 09:06:27 PM the locust tree beside my house, bathed in the mid-morning sunlight (it's a rather warm glow right now, very nice)
Did you make your bed this morning before you left the house?
Isabel Monday 09th of October 2006 09:18:13 PM I haven't left the house yet, but the bed is already made.
Do you sneeze when cleaning the dust?
nena77 Monday 09th of October 2006 10:02:42 PM No; used to do it on purpose when I was little so my mum would think I was allergic to it and not ask me to do any household work, but did not work.
Do you have a sixth sense?
jvz8a Monday 09th of October 2006 11:22:06 PM Yeah. Only the sixth one. I don't know what happened to the other five.
Is there a question you want to forget?
Marta Tuesday 10th of October 2006 08:01:18 AM No, I want to remember everything what's happening to me now, it will never be the same again so I don't want to forget that, anyway, in the end we only remember what was good.
When was the last time you said 'give me a kiss' and in what language you said that?
jvz8a Tuesday 10th of October 2006 10:04:42 PM I am not sure when the last time was. Maybe yesterday. It was in English.
How many pair of socks do you have? (Not wearing right now:p I mean... in total)
nena77 Tuesday 10th of October 2006 10:55:11 PM Including the ones that were "eaten" by the washing machine??? Millions :) Excluding them... about half a million :D
What is the weirdest painting you have seen?
Osman Wednesday 11th of October 2006 01:08:37 AM it was so weird that i can't describe it! :D
Do you think it is possible to live alone until death arrives?
Isabel Wednesday 11th of October 2006 01:36:38 AM Probably there are people that can live that way, but I just couldn't. Feeling alone must be the worst feeling ever. :(
have you ever felt lonely?
Osman Wednesday 11th of October 2006 01:44:32 AM sure. sometimes i still feel like that. but i am not sad about that now. because it helps me move on with the things i am writing down. but in the future, i wouldn never like to feel lonely :(
What should we do not to feel lonely?
Isabel Wednesday 11th of October 2006 02:09:30 AM Ocuppy your mind with something you like to do, meeting new people or even helping the ones that need help. I believe that the most important thing is not to be secluded from the rest of the world, as the world won't even know that you exhist. :)
Do you agree?
Osman Wednesday 11th of October 2006 01:54:23 PM Yes good points. I think we are growing old but if we don't let Peter Pan inside us to grow up, we won't feel lonely. :)
What do you think of doing today?
Vasiliki Wednesday 11th of October 2006 01:55:02 PM I totally agree. No one will care for us if we don't care for ourselves first of all. Not being afraid of getting hurt is also very important if we never want to feel lonely.
Does it take time for you to open your heart to other people?
Psyche Wednesday 11th of October 2006 07:29:44 PM Usually not. I can talk about anything to anyone, I think. Of course, about the secretest...I have to see if the person seem trustable or not first.
What is the best way to remove guilt?
Danial Wednesday 11th of October 2006 07:43:54 PM Reflect and confront the thing that caused your guilt and accept it?
What do you think?
jvz8a Wednesday 11th of October 2006 07:59:44 PM How can I know that? :(
Danial Wednesday 11th of October 2006 08:06:27 PM I have no idea :p
Joe Wednesday 11th of October 2006 08:56:12 PM RIGHT!!! :p
Do you belong to any clubs? (fan clubs, sports clubs... anything)
Petra Wednesday 11th of October 2006 10:38:32 PM yes, I'm member of a sports club, of the fencing department.
Isabel Wednesday 11th of October 2006 10:53:09 PM No - I only belong to two choirs but they are not clubs. :p
Do you sing?
Joe Wednesday 11th of October 2006 11:01:09 PM I try not to. My singing voice, ummmm... needs some improvement. :p
Do you like rainy weather? We've had some storms here this morning... and I am absolutely LOVING it!! I like this weather!
Isabel Wednesday 11th of October 2006 11:16:49 PM well if it is not too often. I love listening to the rain falling, though. It's lovely. :)
Have you ever witnessed a hurricane?
Joe Thursday 12th of October 2006 01:38:30 AM No, not a hurricane. I've seen a small tornado and I did get to see a water spout form a few years ago while fishing in the ocean. It was quite amazing (and frightening) to see the swirling winds pick up a "tube" of water and form a small funnel - I'm not sure I'd really want to see something on the scale of a hurricane.
What's something that impresses you?
jvz8a Thursday 12th of October 2006 06:40:11 AM Many things. Many! And they don't have to be big. Something small (and insignificant) that I hadn't noticed could be impressive.
What do I do now?:(
Joe Thursday 12th of October 2006 08:27:17 AM Hmmmm... write someone special a letter. I'm sure they'll like that! :)
Have you ever started a fire by rubbing two sticks together?
jvz8a Thursday 12th of October 2006 10:11:10 AM :'(
No, I haven't.
Is it a good idea to make up new words when normal ones do not express what you need?
Baby_J Thursday 12th of October 2006 01:12:59 PM Certainly! I do it all the time.If everyone did it then the dictionary would be very very thick.Creating new words expresses your every feeling and really projects your personality>I say do it when you can't find a word to use ;)
Hows the weather over there?
Petra Thursday 12th of October 2006 04:03:38 PM quite nice, around 20°C and more or less sunny, that's okay for October in Germany
Have you already bought some Christmas presents for your friends?
Ewa-Anna Thursday 12th of October 2006 04:39:20 PM Not yet, but I have started making those that I was planning to make myself - like I took some photos in the Tatry mountains (South Poland) and I'm going to make a calendar with them for my best friend, who lives in Ireland at the moment and is rather homesick
Which is your favourite part of year and why?
Vasiliki Thursday 12th of October 2006 05:44:41 PM May because I'm excited summer is comming. It's the same reason I like Friday night (I can't stop thinking of my plans for the weekend!)
Do you feel the same about Friday night?
nena77 Thursday 12th of October 2006 09:39:59 PM Yes, I always hated Sunday because it was the time longest separated from the next weekend, plus I had to study for Monday's school; Friday night is my favourite as you do not have to work the next day, or the day after that!
Do you think there is life in other planets?
Isabel Thursday 12th of October 2006 11:52:55 PM Well If we live in this planet, maybe there are other people like us living far, far away, in a very distant galaxy. But I don't believe in green men conquering our world with space ships. Hundreds of years ago, before the discovery of the New World, people thought that there were sea monsters and strange creatures living in other continents, and after all, there were only humans like the rest of us. :)Who knows...the same thing might happen in other planets.
Do you believe in ghosts?
Psyche Friday 13th of October 2006 02:38:07 AM I think so. Mmm...well, yes :) I do! I am afraid of the, at least :p Not that I think there are ghost people killing people etc though, like in movies :p
Do you believe in...mmm...showing your ass on TV for a good cause? :p
Joe Friday 13th of October 2006 06:09:54 AM Depends entirely on the cause. And for the record, ages ago, when I was in high school, and "mooning" was a popular joke, I had shown my ass for maybe not such a good cause (but never on TV... at least, not that I was aware of ;) )
Why did I just share that? :p
Vasiliki Friday 13th of October 2006 01:51:02 PM So that we can make fun of you from now on :)
Would you use x-ray goggles glasses to see other people naked?
Osman Friday 13th of October 2006 06:13:48 PM lol Joe! :D
I wouldnt! O_O i am not interested in :p
Would you like to have a walk under the rain at the moment?
Vasiliki Friday 13th of October 2006 06:47:26 PM I just had a walk under the rain to go for lunch. But I can't say I enjoy walking under the rain.
Are you in a good mood at the moment? (I am)
Osman Friday 13th of October 2006 07:10:46 PM i am in a super mood!!
wow! i know why! wohooooooooooooo
Do you think that you are lucky?
Danial Friday 13th of October 2006 07:14:04 PM Sometimes :D
Do you know why Osman is in a super good mood? :D :D :D
Osman Friday 13th of October 2006 07:34:25 PM Yes :D
lol you little curious! :p
Are you in super good mood too?
Danial Friday 13th of October 2006 07:48:50 PM Sometimes? :p
lol, maybe I should have rephrased my question :p
Why is Osman in a super good mood? :D :D :D
Osman Friday 13th of October 2006 07:57:34 PM ufa! :D
Erm..Because he has seen a super video (check Misc., probably you have seen Valencia-Hugs :))
and.. i will attempt to read "Mi planta de naranja-lima". Lol dont ask what it is! :D
Would you like to visit Egypt and see pyramids? :)
Isabel Saturday 14th of October 2006 06:30:38 AM hey Osman! Isn't that book a Brazilian novel called "Meu Pé de laranja Lima"? by José mauro deVasconcelos- I've read it once and I really loved it! :)
Yes, of course I would love to go To Egypt!
Will you pay me the trip? :p
Petra Saturday 14th of October 2006 06:50:31 AM I would have paid you the trip if I had won the lottery last Saturday (~35 Million Euro), unfortunately I didn't. *reminds me of checking my lottery ticket to see if I got at least three numbers right*
do you play in the lottery every week?
Osman Saturday 14th of October 2006 02:20:28 PM Nope, i never play :)
Hey Isabel! Wow! You know that! I really adore that book and Zezé. Well it is the world of a little boy but have also messages for us. The writer said that he wrote that book in 12 days but kept the events in his heart more than 20 years..sometimes funny sometimes touching.but i love it. Although my spanish is still poor, i will try to catch somethings in the book, if one day i have good level of spanish, of course i will try to catch a glance at original portuguese version of that book! It is amazing! I like the second book most.i don't know its original title but in turkish it is "Güneşi Uyandıralım" which means Let's Wake up the Sun! :) and the third book is "Doidao". I strongly recommend you to read them if you haven't.
Do you know about José Mauro de Vasconcelos? :p
Ania Saturday 14th of October 2006 03:19:01 PM I don't think so... :p
Do you know what dodoism means?
Petra Saturday 14th of October 2006 08:13:15 PM I only know Dadaism, which is, according to wikipedia, a cultural movement...
but there is a bird named Mauritius Dodo or only Dodo, is dodoism somehow connected to this bird?
Have you ever used the word 'brobdingnagian' and if yes, in which context?
Ania Saturday 14th of October 2006 10:50:49 PM Originally posted by Petra

dodoism - a point of view which is so conservative that it becomes funny
Tiger Sunday 15th of October 2006 02:36:58 AM Why are cows purple?
Danial Sunday 15th of October 2006 02:05:29 PM Yes, brobdingnagian, I have just used it :p in this sentence :p
I don't know :p
Why are we talking about cows now? :p
Ania Sunday 15th of October 2006 03:33:06 PM Danial, I dunno!
Purple cows??? :p
mattie Sunday 15th of October 2006 03:38:30 PM Well, purple cows would definitely been an interesting site! I once saw a purple sheep, but you know, its wool had been coloured. :p
Can you think of an interesting question to ask?
Ania Sunday 15th of October 2006 03:40:02 PM Yes, I can.
Do you want me to do it? :D
mattie Sunday 15th of October 2006 03:43:39 PM Do what... ask your interesting question? Sure, of course, go ahead! :D
Ania Sunday 15th of October 2006 03:47:14 PM Do you know how to prevent corrosion? :D (heheh, i had a paper from electrochemistry on Wednesday.. :p)
mattie Sunday 15th of October 2006 03:56:01 PM Well I guess you can put some oils and things on it to prevent the corrosion, but constant monitoring of the item and cleaning after use will prevent it.... I don't know :p you will have to ask an expert.
I'll pass the question on for you Ania, ;)
Psyche Sunday 15th of October 2006 03:58:45 PM I am not Ania and certainly not a electrochemistry freak, so passing on as well :p
Ania Sunday 15th of October 2006 04:07:33 PM ok ok! :p
A method commonly used to protect a structural metal is to attach a metal which is more anodic than the metal to be protected. This forces the structural metal to be cathodic, thus spared corrosion. It is called "sacrificial" because the anode dissolves and has to be replaced periodically.
Zinc bars are attached at various locations on steel ship hulls to render the ship hull cathodic. The zinc bars are replaced periodically. Other metals, such as magnesium, would work very well but zinc is the least expensive useful metal.
To protect pipelines, buried or exposed an ingot of magnesium (or zinc) is buried beside the pipeline and connected electrically to the pipe above ground. The pipeline is forced to be a cathode and is protected. The magnesium anode is sacrificed. At intervals new ingots are buried to replace those lost.
or by coating&passivation
Metals are coated on its surface with paint or some other non-conducting coating. This prevents the electrolyte from reaching the metal surface IF the coating is complete. Scratches exposing the metal will corrode with the region under the paint, adjacent to the scratch, to be anodic.
Other prevention is called passivation where a metal is coated with another metal such as tin can. Tin is a metal that rapidly corrodes to form a mono-molecular oxide coating that prevents further corrosion of the tin. The tin prevents the electrolyte from reaching the base metal, usually steel (iron). However, if the tin coating is scratched the iron becomes anodic and the can corrodes rapidly.
[colour=red]Note: this is really less complicated when is written in Polish :D[/colour]
So what's another question? :p
Danial Sunday 15th of October 2006 04:15:49 PM lol, ok
What does the Polish version of that text look like? :P
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 17th of October 2006 10:11:04 AM Buggared if I know! :D
What colour shirt would I look best in?
Dolores Tuesday 17th of October 2006 12:51:49 PM I'm far from being a good fashion stylist. Your hair is dark, your complexion is light, you probably wear black a lot, but try something lighter too...though not baby colours... :D
How would you cross a deep, wide river with no bridge, no boat, no rope, can't swim, can't fly, can't dive? ;)
Ulven Tuesday 17th of October 2006 06:14:37 PM Hvis den er Den English Channel, som du taler om, ville jeg rejse på toget. Men hvis det er ikke sådan, da ville jeg nytte "the force".
I assume the last word was 'drive'. Well, if the deep, wide river you're speaking of is the English Channel, I'd catch a train;) Otherwise, I'd use "the force" :)
Ved du, at polkan er ikke polsk, men er tjeckisk, og at Upper Egypt er i syden, ikke i norden?
Do you know that the polka isn't Polish, but Czech, and that Upper Egypt is southern and Lower Egypt is northern?
Marta Tuesday 17th of October 2006 08:31:31 PM well, I was the one who told you about the origin of Polka:p But the Egypt thing is new for me:)
How many continents are there?
Do you know that in different parts of the world they teach you different numbers of continents?
jvz8a Tuesday 17th of October 2006 08:41:47 PM We are told there are 5: América, Europa, África, Asia and Oceanía.
And... this is why many gets annoyed when Americans "steal" the word to designate their country. For us, America is Argentina, the U. S., Colombia, Canada, etc.
"América es aquí. América no es sólo allá. América no es un país. América es mi lugar."
What time did you wake up?
Marta Tuesday 17th of October 2006 08:47:22 PM I woke up at 10 but I'm still a little bit jet-lagged, so it was like 4 in the morning for me.
What season do you have right now in your place?
dackel Tuesday 17th of October 2006 10:13:02 PM Greetings from the Czech speaking part of Silesia :D
Believe it or not, it's autumn here as well, and it's getting already pretty cold...
What is your favourite season?
Joe Tuesday 17th of October 2006 10:17:40 PM Definitely the Fall, and it's Fall here now... and for once, it's actually weather that fits the season! The past several years, autumn has been rather warm... but today there's a chill in the air (probably due to the rain, but hey - I'll take it anyway :) )
Do you prefer color photos or black and white photos?
Isabel Wednesday 18th of October 2006 03:12:12 AM Hard to choose that. I like both I guess. Certain images are much better in black and white than in colour, or vice versa.
Is your life in black and white these days?
Dolores Wednesday 18th of October 2006 01:50:00 PM I'm trying to keep it coloured as much as possible.
Javi, they don't bother adding Antarctic to the list of continents in Mexico? ;)
What nice thing you'd do for yourself after a long, tiring day?
Psyche Wednesday 18th of October 2006 09:41:53 PM Mmm...take a nap, maybe...I am not so creative when it comes to pamper myself (except eating chocolate...works any day for me :p)
What is you favourite song?
jvz8a Wednesday 18th of October 2006 11:26:01 PM Vuggesangen, of course <3
Right, Dolores. At school only those five continents exist. If I think of it.. it might be because they wouldn't be able to explain which contry is there :p
Do your friends think you are crazy for learning your target language?
Ania Wednesday 18th of October 2006 11:27:56 PM No, they simply say: You're sooo stubborn that you still do want to learn it. :p
Do you have many good friends?
Isabel Thursday 19th of October 2006 03:12:44 AM Yes, I'm lucky girl and I'm going to miss them so much :(
Are you missing someone lately?
Marta Thursday 19th of October 2006 04:28:19 AM Yes... very very much. World is very small, only the tickets are expensive:(
Can you give me 700$ for the ticket?
Danial Thursday 19th of October 2006 02:27:02 PM Perhaps, I don't know? :S
Should I? :p :D
Vasiliki Thursday 19th of October 2006 02:32:19 PM Yes and you should give me money for my ticket as well! Thank you in advance:)
Are you going abroad this weekend?
mattie Thursday 19th of October 2006 04:10:33 PM No.
Psyche Thursday 19th of October 2006 04:28:51 PM No. It is not really common for my family to go abroad during week-ends. I wish though.
Your favourite hot-spot?
Peter_fra_Oz Friday 20th of October 2006 05:33:38 PM *grins*
Um alright some other ahhh.. ooo! cuddled up under the covers on a cold winter night with someone you love :)
Should I go to bed?
Vasiliki Friday 20th of October 2006 06:00:12 PM It depends.If you have to get up early tomorrow morning, then I suggest you go.
Should I should try to be more talkative sometimes?
Ania Friday 20th of October 2006 08:27:23 PM Yes, you should! :D But not too much! Otherwise you'll become something like me :p
Why are some people afraid of love?
Isabel Friday 20th of October 2006 09:43:51 PM ..because people are also afraid of getting hurt.
Why is it so hard to find a soul mate?
Marta Friday 20th of October 2006 10:36:35 PM I think you've answered that question partly... beacuse we're so scared of getting hurt we are not very willing to look for a soul mate. Tracy Chapman's question 'why while there are so many of us are there people still alone? is one of the hardest to answer for me. I prefer to listen to Paulo Coelho's words 'if there is joy, then it's best to accept that too, even though you're afraid it might end one day'. I did accept that joy and im suffering greatly right now but I don't regret a single minute:)
I'm sorry, I think I didn't really answer your question...
Do you regret not having done something in your past?
Danial Friday 20th of October 2006 10:44:23 PM Yes, one thing was telling not someone something... :(
What would you like to change in your past?
Marta Friday 20th of October 2006 10:52:14 PM Next week I'm going to Spain for one year if it wasn't for that I'd have stayed in New York with the person I love. I'd like to change the moment when I started organising my internship... It sounds great, the travel and all that... but I regret.
Have you been to a fortune teller?
Danial Friday 20th of October 2006 10:59:41 PM Not really, cause I am already psychic :D :D :D :p
Would you be a psychic?
mattie Saturday 21st of October 2006 03:31:16 AM Well, I have had feelings of déjà vu, but that hardly subsitutes as being psychic, so no.
Do you think you would ever be famous for something?
Petra Saturday 21st of October 2006 07:06:50 AM No, I don't think so and honestly, I hope I won't be famous ever. Though I'd like to know what the feeling is like to be on a stage and everyone is cheering. But onely for one evening, that would be definitely enough.
When was the last time you had an all-night party?
Joe Saturday 21st of October 2006 12:33:02 PM gosh... ages ago! I can't even remember when, maybe sometime just after college?
What's something you've given up?
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 24th of October 2006 01:13:50 PM Having lots of free time :(
What happened to this post?
-oh thats right, it's got glitched already, buggar!
Psyche Tuesday 24th of October 2006 04:26:58 PM Mmm....yes? No? :p
Mmm...do you have anything you wanna say? :p
Marja Tuesday 24th of October 2006 05:22:37 PM erm, MN Rocks?! :D
Do you have anything in your diary to do for today?
Psyche Tuesday 24th of October 2006 06:24:37 PM Great answer! :D
I have a Spanish course to go to. También dar muchos besos a mi novio <3
Wanna play CLuedo? :D
Prepare to lose!! :D
jvz8a Tuesday 24th of October 2006 07:55:08 PM Cluedo? I don't know what that is.
BUT... girl... you'll see me doing the victory dance if we play! :p:D
How to play Cluedo? I need a tutorial!
Marja Wednesday 25th of October 2006 12:40:47 AM Professor Plum in the library with a candlestick? :D hehe
It's the murder mystery whodunnit game. Not played in a long long while so I can't give you tutorial but this might help [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluedo]CLUEDO
Why are younger brothers such pains in the backside? :p
nena77 Wednesday 25th of October 2006 02:48:02 AM Don't know. They really are :D Only when they are under 12 though. After that they start asking you about girls and dates and what they should wear. And you can get even by sending them on a date with the wrong colour shirt :hoho But you do not want to get even anymore.
Are elder sisters impossible to deal with?
Ania Wednesday 25th of October 2006 03:04:06 AM Sometimes! But sometimes they're lovely! Mine is so.
Sometimes I love her so much and she's just great but there are many days she's so terribly annoying, lazy and vain that i'd love to dig her out! :D
What are you going to do tonight before going to bed?
Joe Wednesday 25th of October 2006 05:20:13 AM Watch my hometown hockey team, the Penguins. They play the Devils tonight. I don't get to actually watch that many of their games on TV, because usually I'm at work, so I'm excited! :)
How tall are you?
Marja Wednesday 25th of October 2006 05:30:26 AM Haha it should be rephrased for me to 'how short are you?' haha :p
I'm a petite 5 foot 1 but I kinda like it :)
What colour are your eyes?
nicki Wednesday 25th of October 2006 06:31:46 AM Green. :)
Do you like green eyes? :D
Joe Wednesday 25th of October 2006 09:22:06 AM sure, why not? Green eyes are nice.
Have you ever shot a bow and arrow?
Osman Wednesday 25th of October 2006 02:55:16 PM Nope, but to do that would be really interesting and enjoyable for me.
Have you ever thought of writing a novel?
Psyche Wednesday 25th of October 2006 04:36:24 PM Sure have :) Have started quite a few too...:p
The key word here is "started" :p
Who is your favourite author?
Marja Wednesday 25th of October 2006 05:23:51 PM Can't pin it down to just the one, I have a few: JK Rowling, Laurell K Hamilton, David Eddings and Dan Brown.
Do you keep your tomato ketchup in the fridge or the cupboard?
Marta Wednesday 25th of October 2006 05:36:58 PM Always in the fridge.
Do you rinse the dishes after washing them?
Joe Wednesday 25th of October 2006 09:24:59 PM Yes - I find it helps the dishwasher clean the really caked-on goo.
How old are you?
jvz8a Wednesday 25th of October 2006 09:32:25 PM Older than I feel. 31 and incresing.
Who's the oldest member in your family?
Marja Wednesday 25th of October 2006 10:25:09 PM Immediate family is my Dad but the rest of the family I'm not certain. There are many family members I don't know. The oldest I can think of who I've met is probably my great great Aunt Margaret who lives in the Netherlands.
Who is the youngest member of your family?
nena77 Wednesday 25th of October 2006 11:18:52 PM My brother is the youngest in the family and also the youngest one of my cousins from my dad's side.
I keep hoping there'll be a newest one soon, but keep getting disappointed every month... :(
What is the quality of your star sign that you think describes you? [even if you do not believe in star signs]
Psyche Thursday 26th of October 2006 08:54:46 PM Stubborn, traditional, slow, solid....actually, most of my star sign qualities match.
Aww...you`ll have a little one sooner than you think! Don`t be sad!
What is your biggest wish?
jvz8a Thursday 26th of October 2006 09:15:45 PM Being with you, you being happy. Both at the same time.
Where will you go today?
nena77 Thursday 26th of October 2006 09:28:44 PM Probably out for a coffee with friends, it is a beautiful day.
Thanks Nat, hope all your wishes come true, too :)
What living creature are you absolutely scared of?
[I cannot stand spiders....]
Joe Friday 27th of October 2006 12:50:22 AM I'm right there with you nena - I am TERRIFIED of spiders, especially the big hairy ones! Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!
Do you remember who your first friend was?
Zach Friday 27th of October 2006 12:57:47 AM My first real friend I met in sixth grade; his name was David and he grew up to marry my sister. ;)
What are the blue stars below your picture for?
Osman Friday 27th of October 2006 01:09:41 AM it is related to the messages i have posted on forums. the more i join the forums, the more star i have :)
What do you think about your future baby? (assuming you are single :))
Psyche Friday 27th of October 2006 11:31:41 PM I have one already! Javier! He is the best baby :)
Who do you want to marry?
jvz8a Friday 27th of October 2006 11:36:39 PM you :(
nena77 Saturday 28th of October 2006 07:12:42 PM I've already married the love of my life, Panos :)
Last Sunday we celebrated our first anniversary :)
What kind of car do you own/would you like to buy?
Marja Sunday 29th of October 2006 04:37:52 AM BMW through and through :) Both my parents have them and there's one my dad's working on for when I pass my driving test. He's on the North West committee for the BMW car club Great Britain too, so I guess it's part of me :)
What was the last book you read?
Osman Sunday 29th of October 2006 04:38:47 AM are you wife of Panos?! awww... congratulations for the first annivesary!! say hello to Panos from me and convey my congragulations please! have an eternal life tOgEtHeR!
and answer now :)
Well, i have always loved Land Rovers but not sure i could buy one of them someday :p I would like to buy a car which is very comfortable and don't drive me crazy. hehe
Would you like to visit the whole Europe with a bicycle?
Joe Sunday 29th of October 2006 07:21:11 AM Sure, that would be an interesting (and tiring!) vacation.
What's the last hotel/motel/hostel you've stayed at?
mattie Sunday 29th of October 2006 10:30:30 AM The last hotel I stayed in was the Grosvenor Motor Inn/Hotel in Hamilton. I definitely recommend it if you got to Hamilton, New Zealand. ;)
Have you seen the horror movie "Hostel"?
Joe Sunday 29th of October 2006 11:05:52 AM Yes, I have. I was very disappointed in it. I'm a big fan or horror movies, but nowadays, it seems that most people define "horror" as "gory". I don't :( Gore is boring.
Do you like being scared (by movies and the sort)?
Osman Sunday 29th of October 2006 02:43:42 PM Yes, but not all of them. Hostel is far from being under the "horror" category because it is "violence". I never recommend such films, they destroy your psychology... Same things for SAW. SAW 1 was relatively good, but SAW 2 was done just because people enjoyed the episode 1. Nowadays, Saw 3 is released. Although i have watched 1 and 2, i don't think of watching 3. episode. Instead, i like films such as "The Sixth Sense". Beacuse tension is always high and no torture.. :)
Do you wonder the next (5.) film of Harry Potter?
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 29th of October 2006 05:28:52 PM Yes, actually I do! I think this next one is going to be special because I finaly get to see it with someone even more of a nutter for Harry Potter than I :)
Do you admit to liking to watch kid films still?
Psyche Sunday 29th of October 2006 07:03:16 PM Naturally :p I am not afraid of sounding like a loser :p I am one - and proud :p
When is the last time you kissed someone? :p
Petra Sunday 29th of October 2006 11:37:09 PM hm, I'm single. That pretty much gives the answer.
Do you think the concept of summertime/wintertime is a good concept?
Laydee Monday 30th of October 2006 12:17:53 AM No.As if it wasn't enough to watch your time-schedule you have to remember that stuff too..
Will you watch the movie Eragon?(If you haven't read the book,I suggest you should! And The Eldest)
jvz8a Monday 30th of October 2006 12:34:29 PM I don't know the book. But yes, it is ALWAYS better to read the book first.
And about watching the movie... maybe yes, maybe no.
How do you think the universe will end? do you support those who think it'll simply go to a dead of all matter (everything decaying, from protons to neutrons and all crazy subatonic particles) OR you support the idea of those who think that the garvitational pull will do it work at some point and that the universe will stop expanding and a contracting perido will come to the point we have a "reverse" big bang, so another big bang comes and everything starts over again?
AND... in case you think this second option is what could be right, do you think fundamental constants in our universe wil be the same for the "next" universe arising from the next big bang?
and if you think the first option is the good one... what would happen to the residual mass? I mean... what happens to a proton when it decays? It becomes energy, okay.. but... would it be a universe full of energy disipation?
AND... if you have a different hypothesis for the future of our universe... (and if it makes any sense), could yuo share it with us?
[I remember a few months ago, I asked if there was a limit for the number of questions per post in this thread.. and the answer was no! :p]
Veelakhu Tuesday 31st of October 2006 02:04:52 AM Ok, well here goes, In the Bible it says that the heavens and the earth will flee from God's face, and that he will fold them up like an old garment. This could be the reverse big bang you speak of, because after the folding he will create a new heaven and a new earth. And that one will have some differences to it. So maybe the universal constants we know now will be different.
As for a different hypothesiswell the bible speaks of the new earth as having no need of the light of the sun, or the moon, because God will provide the light. So it seems that the material realm will no longer be needed, and that we will finally be set free from the flesh, and be allowed to soar in the spirit!
Any other opinions on the subject? :)
Joe Thursday 02nd of November 2006 09:16:41 AM Hmmm... not really. I think that whatever future arrives will be exactly what the world deserves, in a manner of speaking. We definitely reap what we sow - and I think many people in this world are deluding themselves with what they think they're sowing...
Did you dress up for Halloween last night? (and if so, as what? Pics are a plus! :p)
Ania Friday 03rd of November 2006 02:22:06 AM No, because I really dislike that day! It's not popular in Poland, luckily.
What's your favourite day in the year?
Veelakhu Friday 03rd of November 2006 08:32:06 AM Every Friday starting the weekend! :) Ok, of the year, probably Christmas, family is home, everyone is generally happy, and it is a warm time.
What it your favorite month of the year?
Danial Friday 03rd of November 2006 02:37:08 PM NOVEMBER! :D as in right now as it's suppose to be a two month holiday from school but bleh :p I have 3 weeks of extra classes :( but I get to execute my lovely (some evil) plans :D let's see... plans to dye hair blah blah blah
What are you doing now?
Vasiliki Friday 03rd of November 2006 04:30:49 PM Thinking if I should go out for lunch or order something.
What do you think I should do?
Danial Friday 03rd of November 2006 04:34:51 PM umm... Sleep? :zzz
Vasiliki Friday 03rd of November 2006 05:01:54 PM I'll order something, it's raining anyway...
If a friend of yours smelled really bad would you tell him/her and if yes what exactly would you say?
Joe Saturday 04th of November 2006 05:13:11 AM I'd certainly tell them. How I would tell them would depend on how good of friends we were.
Have you ever tap-danced?
Petra Saturday 04th of November 2006 06:52:55 AM No, never. I'm absolutely talentless in everything in which music is involved (singing, dancing, playing an instrument etc.)
How often did you bunk off school?
Peter_fra_Oz Saturday 04th of November 2006 02:53:16 PM Rarely, only time really was when a friend was involved and having a difficult time such as happened with one of my best friends whose brother died of leukemia and my friend was spinning out of control.
What makes you calm?
Marjan Saturday 04th of November 2006 06:46:28 PM When I'm alone listening to my Louis Armstrong cd.
Or when I climb the walls of the fortress overlooking my hometown and just silently observe the city.
What/who makes you really irritated?
nena77 Saturday 04th of November 2006 10:17:11 PM Ι cannot stand it when people interrupt others when they speak. I do not like it when it is done to me, I cannot stand it when I see it happening on TV talk-shows, and is one of the reasons I stopped watching the 8 o'clock news, as there are a bunch of people on TV windows, all speaking at the same time.
What supernatural quality/sense do you wish you had?
Danial Sunday 05th of November 2006 12:21:07 AM Hmm... I already have ESP, Telepathy, maybe psychokinesis what more can I ask for? :D lol
If you could live in a fantasy what would that fantasy be?
jvz8a Sunday 05th of November 2006 01:15:33 AM Natalie's.
What time is it?
nena77 Sunday 05th of November 2006 01:18:11 AM Chocolate that made you lose weight, the more you ate, the more you lost :) Definitely :D
Which famous person do you think that you look like? [please be a s vain as you like ;)]
Petra Sunday 05th of November 2006 02:24:09 AM I don't think I look like any famous person, but my grandma keeps on insisting that I'd look like Julia Roberts. I already offered to buy her new glasses... ;)
As I'm not very imaginative at the moment and as Javi's question felt probably victim to double-posting, here it is again:
What time is it?
mattie Sunday 05th of November 2006 02:40:59 AM At the time of writing this here in New Zealand, it is 8.40 a.m
How's the weather?
Petra Sunday 05th of November 2006 02:46:44 AM dark :p. I guess it's not raining at the moment but the whole day has been cloudy without much sunshine.
What are your plans for tomorrow?
Joe Sunday 05th of November 2006 08:04:06 AM a little bit of work at my job, some work at home, some time with my kids, maybe watch some football... then pass out at some point in the evening
What's one thing you hate?
Tyrrena Sunday 05th of November 2006 07:30:35 PM cheekiness
what´s one characteristic u do appreciate in ppl?
Joe Sunday 05th of November 2006 08:42:29 PM true friendship
Do you like winter weather?
Veelakhu Monday 06th of November 2006 07:25:25 AM I actually do like winter weather because I have more indoor time to do the things I love.
What exactly is cheekiness? :D
jvz8a Monday 06th of November 2006 09:17:45 AM From [url=http://www.websters-online-dictionary.org/definition/cheekiness]Webster's online dictionary Cheekiness: The trait of being rude and impertinent; inclined to take liberties.
What's the longest trip by train you've taken?
Tyrrena Monday 06th of November 2006 10:35:09 AM The longest has been very short in fact( 2 days): London - Oxford -Stratford on Avon and back to London. We normally travel by car.
Have u already seen any Xmas decorations in shops or supermarkets?
Cheekiness: meal prepared with unborn chicken, seasoned with a delicate blend of spices and red wine vinegar dressing
Psyche Tuesday 07th of November 2006 12:00:48 AM No, but the started selling Christmas cookies etc already in the beginning of October. I hate that! :(
Cheekiness: Being bold and taking liberties, often in a sleazy, but cute way.
How long was your longest nap ever?
Anya Tuesday 07th of November 2006 12:13:11 AM 2 days (I think). I had fallen from 2 meters when I was little and had a very bad concussion. I woke up surrounded by nurses and doctors who had me on all sorts of IV's (intravenouse lines). I didn't feel the fall, and simply felt like I was waking up from a very long nap... thank goodness, since after that my naps were never that "carefree".
What do you collect?
Petra Tuesday 07th of November 2006 04:44:04 AM I used to collect pens and stamps. Nowadays I don't collect anything.
Have you ever hitchhiked?
Joe Tuesday 07th of November 2006 11:24:04 AM No, I haven't. And honestly, many places here in the States simply aren't really safe enough to hitchhike nowadays. I know some people still do it here, but it's quite foolish.
Would you ever try hang-gliding?
Danial Tuesday 07th of November 2006 03:08:19 PM I would love to! :)
Would you like to be an exotic dancer? :D
Veelakhu Tuesday 07th of November 2006 10:28:13 PM I can say with certainty that becoming an exotic dancer has never crossed my mind, and to answer the question, no. :)
A good question though, passing it on
Would you like to be an exotic dancer?
Joe Tuesday 07th of November 2006 10:43:49 PM Nope, not at all. I dated an exotic dancer many years ago (when I was just out of college), and let's just say the inner working's of some of that world can be less than healthy for some of them.
In your country, what exactly defines what an "exotic dancer" is?
Marja Wednesday 08th of November 2006 01:42:01 AM I'm not really sure about the UK, I guess an exotic dancer here could be anything from a belly dancer to a lap dancer :p
What was the last concert or show you went to?
Petra Wednesday 08th of November 2006 05:14:48 AM The 'Dralion'-show by Cirque du Soleil two weeks ago. Beautiful show, amazing acts. If it wasnt' so expensive I'd go a and watch it a second time.
How often did you watch the movie 'Titanic' in cinema? (on TV or on DVD doesn't count)
Tyrrena Wednesday 08th of November 2006 09:43:22 AM Just once, at the cinema, ... and it was more than enough!!! :p
What´s the film u could watch over and over again(if there is any?)
Danial Wednesday 08th of November 2006 01:23:20 PM Hmm... tough question.
Personally I love Pirates of the Carribeans but after a while it becomes boring.
So, passing on the same question.
Peter_fra_Oz Wednesday 08th of November 2006 03:54:31 PM Not a film that I can watch over and over again for long. Right now it seems it more that a television series, BBC's Coupling, all 4 seasons I seem to watch over and over again :)
What was the last special thing that you did for someone?
Marja Wednesday 08th of November 2006 11:43:20 PM It could be lots of little things :)
But I think the most special is going through tough situations and being strong for the person I love. Things like that speak more than words <3
Passing on... I like that question :)
Marta Thursday 09th of November 2006 01:52:05 AM I guess that could be waking up in the middle of a night last night to make a phone call to somebody who is in a different time zone...
I like that question too, but let´s change it a bit: What was the last special thing somebody did for you?
Joe Thursday 09th of November 2006 03:05:05 AM Well, I recently found out that a co-worker's daughter (I believe she's 7 years old) and I shared a common interest, so I gave the daughter a book I had covering the subject. She responded by making me a hand-msde thank you note. It actually brightened my day considerably :)
What's your favorite recipe?
Ania Friday 10th of November 2006 01:31:51 AM Recipe refers only to things to be eaten/drunk? I hope not. If not, then I have a recipe for a nice relaxing bath. :D
Tell me, recipe refers only to the kitchen thingies (i mean food, drinks)?
Joe Friday 10th of November 2006 02:48:13 AM it can refer to anything here. If you have a recipe for a relaxing bath, that's great!
What's important to you?
Peter_fra_Oz Friday 10th of November 2006 03:28:10 AM Family foremost and then people in general. I am passed all the work and money and material items things, in the end its only friends and your family that was really important in life.
Whats better, a bath or a shower?
Petra Friday 10th of November 2006 10:08:32 PM I'd always chose a shower. I don't like lying in the water and I was told a shower doesn't waste as much water as a bath.
Do you start your day with only coffee or with a proper breakfast?
Proper breakfast when I can, coffee when I'm late; some days its a choice between breakie and something I need to get done before work.
Can you eat sweet things for breakfast, or do you prefer savoury?
Joe Saturday 11th of November 2006 09:23:43 PM Truthfully, I rarely eat breakfast, as I'm usually too busy preparing for my sons and getting ready for their therapists to arrive and start the day. I'd prefer savory though, if I had the time for it.
What's your favorite smell/scent?
Psyche Sunday 12th of November 2006 07:17:55 AM I like white musc a lot :) And chocolate and vanilla!
Passing on! *happy*
jvz8a Sunday 12th of November 2006 12:27:03 PM Vanilla as well.
Do you believe in miracles?
Danial Sunday 12th of November 2006 12:57:37 PM Yes.
Do believe in things that may not have scientific explainations (yet)?
Ania Sunday 12th of November 2006 03:02:35 PM Yes, I do, I do believe in miracles, in God and in destiny (Thanks, Ulven :)). :)
Do you like being seduced? :D
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 12th of November 2006 05:06:40 PM Always if its by my girl :)
What is worth fighting for?
Marja Sunday 12th of November 2006 06:16:21 PM You, sweetie *hugs*
Where do you most want to be right now?
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 12th of November 2006 06:19:37 PM By your side forever <3
Will it take eternity for Jan 17th to arrive?
Marja Sunday 12th of November 2006 06:26:34 PM It will seem like it but it's so worth it :)
How will you feel on Jan 17th? *hugs*
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 12th of November 2006 06:30:00 PM Every emotion at once :) *hugs*
That and starting to take some Jet Lag pills for a 25 hours flight :p
How will you feel on Jan 18th?
Marja Sunday 12th of November 2006 06:34:30 PM I wouldn't know how to describe it :) But it'll be the most wonderful thing I've ever felt <3
What are you doing right now? (besides posting on PB) :p
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 12th of November 2006 06:48:55 PM Listening to your lovely voice and talking to you :p
Anything you want me to bring from here?
Marja Sunday 12th of November 2006 06:51:47 PM Just by coming here you will have fullfilled that question :)
Anything you want me to bring to the airport?
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 12th of November 2006 07:03:40 PM You :) and maybe a coffee, I'll have been up for 42 hours or more. I'll just take a big hug insead and be happy :)
Is it chicken tonight?
Marja Sunday 12th of November 2006 07:07:52 PM Hahaha omg I can't believe you asked that :p I knew you were up to something :p lol
Yes! yes it is i admit it's a jar of chicken tonight sauce, you got me :p
Are you wondering what the hell Peter and I are talking about? :p lol
Petra Sunday 12th of November 2006 09:24:16 PM yes, I'm always curious.
But you aren't going to tell aus, are you?
Marja Sunday 12th of November 2006 11:41:22 PM It's nothing secretive :) We were talking about what I was preparing for dinner and the sauce for the chicken is from a jar :p Chicken Tonight - Creamy Peppercorn Sauce mmmm :)
Peter teases me about it not being made from scratch :p He's gonna teach me to cook properly :)
Do you know Chicken Tonight sauces?
Joe Monday 13th of November 2006 03:27:05 AM yes, I've had them before. Admittedly, I didn't care much for them...
When have you finally had enough?
Danial Monday 13th of November 2006 01:42:08 PM On the verge of breaking down...
Can everyone be happy at the same time?
mattie Monday 13th of November 2006 05:36:07 PM No, it would be imposible for everyone to be happy at the same time.
Have you ever thought about meeting someone from the Internet?
Danial Monday 13th of November 2006 05:52:13 PM Yeah, why not? :) I would love to meet a lot of people here on PB?
Who would you like to meet in-person first from Phrasebase?
Marta Monday 13th of November 2006 08:42:40 PM I´ve already had my first person from PB:) It was Marja. I even had a second, Tmoon. Who will be third? No idea... but I´m in Spain now if anybody wants to drop by;)
Have you ever stolen anything?
Vasiliki Tuesday 14th of November 2006 03:33:12 PM Yes, a hair rubber from a supermarket and a blue bead worn to avert the evil eye from Monastiraki (Athens)because I got angry with the store owner.
Passing on the same question...
Danial Tuesday 14th of November 2006 04:07:26 PM Yeah, I was a little thief when I was younger :p lol, stolen sweets :p umm... cards? :p bleh, nothing to see here... :D :D :D
And passing again...
mattie Tuesday 14th of November 2006 04:20:55 PM No, I've never stolen anything that I can remember. Well, nothing like from a shop or anything.
Do you have any kind of flag on your wall or outside your house?
Marta Tuesday 14th of November 2006 08:05:01 PM No, I don´t. And I´ve never had in any of the places I have lived in.
What´s on your wall?
jvz8a Tuesday 14th of November 2006 08:30:19 PM At my right side: a whiteboard, a mirror and some pics.
At my back: some pics and shelves.
At my left side: nothing (mainly because a cloet is there)
Do you like rollercoasters?
Danial Tuesday 14th of November 2006 08:44:19 PM Only until I get sick of it. :p
What is the most adrenline-rushing thing you have done in your life?
nena77 Wednesday 15th of November 2006 02:19:16 AM Well, it may sound non-adventurus or adrenaline rushing, but going down a big water slide, an almost vertical one, in Waterland, Thessaloniki, had my heart pumping somehow differently.
What is your favourite colour?
mattie Wednesday 15th of November 2006 10:33:56 AM I don't have just one favourite colour. I prefer orange, blue or green. It's hard to decide.
In which room of your house is the computer?
Joe Wednesday 15th of November 2006 11:26:43 AM In the back office (a spare room, really)
Do you write for fun (poetry, short stories, any type of writing)?
Osman Wednesday 15th of November 2006 02:25:00 PM Yes! I love writing! sometimes for fun, sometimes because of necessity, sometimes my friends force! lol
Have you seen the movie "Babel"?
Danial Wednesday 15th of November 2006 10:13:17 PM Nope, not yet :p
What is "Babel" about?
Ania Thursday 16th of November 2006 12:16:01 AM I haven't seen it but I'm interested in cinematography so I know a tiny bit about it. :p The Bible says there were once a lot of people who were very proud. They wanted to build a tower which would be sooooo high that could reach the heaven. In fact they wanted to go to God, so they decided to build the Babel tower. But God got offended with them due to the fact they didn't listen to him and didn't undesrtand what he wanted to say. So he made them all speak different languages so that they would never be able to get in touch with each other and consequently couldn't finish the building. It is believed by some this was the way of creating languages.I guess that movie is based on that story.
Are my stories boring? :p (not only this one, also the former one about the Amber Room...)
Danial Thursday 16th of November 2006 03:12:02 AM lol, I did hear about the Babel tower story then :p
lol, NAH! Your stories are never boring except they are long, though I do skim through it which means it took me like about a few seconds to read the whole thing :p
:D :D :D
Are you a speed reader? :p If so, which languages are you able to speed read in?
Joe Thursday 16th of November 2006 05:27:51 AM I do tend to be a speed reader, but only in my native language (English). I'm still working slowly on my reading in Russian!
Is there anything that's very mysterious to you?
Peter_fra_Oz Thursday 16th of November 2006 10:15:17 AM Yeah, where all the pens go from my desk! honestly I think there should always be something left for mystery in ones life. Goes back to why we have the Easter bunny and Santa Claus for the kids, it makes life fun and interesting :)
[Where are you going to be/what are you going to do] for Christmas this year?
Joe Thursday 16th of November 2006 11:32:51 AM Staying at home this year, my mother will be coming to visit me.
What does the upcoming holiday season mean to you?
Peter_fra_Oz Thursday 16th of November 2006 11:57:53 AM Family, warm fuzzy feelings, and hugs :)
Is it the actual present itself that does it for you, or does the thought behind the present do it for you?
Psyche Thursday 16th of November 2006 10:07:08 PM Depends. Usually the present itself, as I usually get things I have already wished for or something :p Mmm...but if I get something surprising from my baby, or from some PB friends...or anything, I get very touched. Even if it is just a "small" thing :)
Do you think it is cooler to say "whatever" or "quidquid" ("whatever" in Latin)? :p
Petra Friday 17th of November 2006 06:56:10 AM whatever, as English words in German sentences are considered to be very cool, while people speaking latin are just nerds, freaks and very uncool in most (young) people's opinion. (furthermore only very few German people would understand 'quidquid'. With 'whatever' the chances of being understood are better)
Do you care about what other people think is 'cool'?
Joe Friday 17th of November 2006 09:43:47 AM Not one bit. I spent various portions of my life worrying about what others thought of me, and doing things I thought they would accept or find "cool" - many times at the risk of compromising my own self. At this point, I'm done with that. "Cool" can be so not cool... you know?
Are you secure in "who you are"?
Danial Friday 17th of November 2006 05:08:21 PM No, I'm always searching for my true self?
Have you found your true self yet?
Petra Friday 17th of November 2006 08:04:05 PM I don't think so, but I hope I'll find my true self one day (hopefully sooner than later)
Have you ever experienced an earthquake?
Danial Friday 17th of November 2006 08:19:41 PM Never and I hope not too. :)
If you were given a free plastic surgery, what would you edit about yourself?
Ania Friday 17th of November 2006 08:22:11 PM My nose, I don't like it and I'd love to have a different complexion. Not sooo sensitive. :D
Petra Friday 17th of November 2006 08:31:45 PM also my nose and perhaps something else as well but me being so afraid of surgery, I have to live with my nose and all the other features.
passing on the question
Marja Friday 17th of November 2006 11:27:52 PM Maybe my feet, I don't like them :p and less problematic skin. But I wouldn't go for surgery, I'd rather stay the way I am than go through that.
What was the last item of clothing you bought?
Joe Saturday 18th of November 2006 12:44:36 PM Nothing special, just a new shirt.
If you could completely re-do your entire wardrobe, what style of clothes would you buy? (anything goes! :) )
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 20th of November 2006 04:41:01 PM hehehe *elfish grin* thats a very dangerous question to ask me Joe :D
Oh I don't know :) I actually have quite the opposite problem, I need to clear off shelf space and hangers so I can share all the wardrobes.
I don't actually know if I could get anything different clothes wise, I like my club gear, my cowboy gear and all my lovely boots :)
Ooo! ok, maybe a Miami Vice phase, or maybe a Caribbean island thing :) seeing how its getting hot and a very hot summer is to be upon us in the Land of Oz. Hope that answers your question.
Whats the best way to keep warm?
Marja Monday 20th of November 2006 07:17:39 PM Well, short of a big thick coat, I'd say snuggled up on the sofa under a cosy blanket with you sweetie *hugs*
Hah, I'm gonna have to sort my clothes out too so I can fit them in the wardrobe space :p The shoes and boots might be a problem though :p hahaha
If you have a mobile phone do you phone people more than you text people or the other way around?
Ania Monday 20th of November 2006 09:49:53 PM Well, it depends. I love phoning some people, for instance my sister with whom I can talk for hours (but then the bill frightens me off :p) and there are some people whom I can only text, I never feel like calling them.
What is the most amazing thing in the world for you?
Joe Tuesday 21st of November 2006 12:17:06 PM I'm finding solace from everyday events lately in the "little things" in life. The sun rising in the mornings, the few early season snows that we've had. Maybe it's just me getting older, and waxing nostalgic for the days of innocent youth, but I just find the simple things to be amazing - much more so than anything we concoct in our own lives.
Will you share with us a piece of information about yourself? (anything at all that you feel like telling us!)
nena77 Wednesday 22nd of November 2006 03:33:08 AM When I was 8, my dad decided to redecorate our garden, so he had to take off all the plants and bushes that had grown there. When my friends asked me what was happening to the garden, I lied. I told them we were building a swimming pool and that from now on, my birthday parties were going to be by the pool. My threat to everyone that disagreed with me was that he was not going to be invited to the pool-party. :p
What presents are you going to buy this Christmas [I am hoping for a good idea here... :)]
Grinner Wednesday 22nd of November 2006 01:00:24 PM Seeing as how i don't celebrate Christmas except the part of it being a national holiday (yea!), i might not be the best person to answer this... eXcept, i -am- buying a present, for my 7 year old son who did -extremely- well in his final exams and came out top in his class *Warning:Proud Dad on the loose!* so i am buying him a PSP, or sony's playstation portable for you luddites :) ...it's a sure winner for both the young and *ahem* their dads too (Son, you didn't wash your hands before dinner! No PSP for 3 days... hand it over!)
I am famished!!! are you?
Peter_fra_Oz Wednesday 22nd of November 2006 06:00:16 PM A little, didn't have a terribly big dinner as I left work late and the drive home was even longer than ever because of it (so much for my theory about letting the traffic thin out :p). Maybe a little cup of green tea and a salad or something before bed (its almost that time you see).
which finger is the longest one on your hand? :D
Ania Wednesday 22nd of November 2006 10:30:53 PM the 'nice quote to a sassy guy' finger :D
Do you know what is the rainbow and how does it happen we can see it?
Joe Wednesday 22nd of November 2006 10:35:42 PM Sure do - it's "white" light refracted into it's constituent spectrum, usually by water droplets in the air.
Have you ever seen a "moon-bow"?
Marja Thursday 23rd of November 2006 05:46:24 AM I have absolutely no idea :p
What is a "moon-bow"?
Anonymous Thursday 23rd of November 2006 06:41:18 AM I also have no idea. That probably means that I have never seen any... :p Is it something like a rainbow - but at night? :D
I give the question to the next person. :)
jvz8a Thursday 23rd of November 2006 01:29:00 PM lol Thanks :p
Why is it so cold here these days?
Anonymous Thursday 23rd of November 2006 03:37:33 PM As tomorrow the "real" winter starts!! :) (because the first ski-jumping competition takes place :p - in Kuusamo).
What colour have your fingernails at the moment?
Ania Thursday 23rd of November 2006 11:39:30 PM well, it's pink because it's their natural colour as I hate painting them!
What do you find eWaste?
Petra Friday 24th of November 2006 06:22:41 AM eWaste like electronic waste? spam mails of course, but also a few blogs and personal home pages
Have you ever worn coloured contact lenses to change your eye colour?
Peter_fra_Oz Friday 24th of November 2006 10:15:41 AM No, but in Hollywood you could buy them with cats eyes, fireballs, all black, all white, and other kind of freaky styles =P
How to repel fleas? :( ow! *scratches*
mattie Friday 24th of November 2006 03:51:33 PM We had the outside of our house sprayed for fleas, spiders and other bugs. Maybe you could try that?
If you could change one thing about the place you live in, what would it be?
Rion Friday 24th of November 2006 04:26:26 PM It wouldn't be quite so cold.
Have you ever eaten an insect?
Danial Friday 24th of November 2006 11:05:42 PM Nope :p wouldn't try :p
Would you try an insect if it was labelled a delicacy or gourmet?
Anonymous Saturday 25th of November 2006 02:10:23 AM Never ever!!! :p :)
Do you live in a country with dangerous spiders and snakes?
Ania Saturday 25th of November 2006 02:15:37 AM hmmm yes!? well, all snakes and spiders seem dangerous to me, it doesn't matter if it's an anaconda or a grass snake :p
TPBM could spend their whole life in a jungle.
Anonymous Saturday 25th of November 2006 02:24:01 AM No, I would suffer a nervous breakdown within the first 5 minutes!!
Do you think that Sudoku is only waste of time?
Ania Saturday 25th of November 2006 02:27:14 AM No, I think the opposite. It's a cool game and I would like more than chess if I were capable of making it at least once. :D
Would like to have a battle against me? :p
Danial Saturday 25th of November 2006 03:07:51 AM In chess or sudoku? :D
Ania Saturday 25th of November 2006 03:10:33 AM generally :p
Psyche Saturday 25th of November 2006 03:27:02 AM I hate sudoku....so...chess it is :p
Danial Saturday 25th of November 2006 03:31:52 AM lol
Nat! :D we still haven't got that match!! :D
So, how are you good at chess? :D
Psyche Saturday 25th of November 2006 03:39:28 AM I SUCK :p
And I am a baaaaaaaaad loser :p
Shall we play now? :p
jvz8a Saturday 25th of November 2006 03:47:22 AM mmm.. I think not :( :W :W :W
When was the last time you were at a concert?
Psyche Saturday 25th of November 2006 04:12:11 AM Javier doesn`t want to play with me because I turn into a bitch when we do
Mmm...a few weeks ago :) Violin concert.
Where are you now?
jvz8a Saturday 25th of November 2006 04:15:44 AM Next to you? :(
[Now... you know the reason, Natalie :( :W ]
How often do you diet?
Psyche Saturday 25th of November 2006 05:25:27 AM Constantly off and on!
Who is evil?
jvz8a Saturday 25th of November 2006 05:32:20 AM :$
Many are evil.
Hey! I want to apologize!!! :( I had a mistake there! i am SO SORRY for that typo :(
My sentence should say
No... you know the reason...
Please for give me for the typo, princesa :( :W
What can I say now? :(
[This time, I did mean noW]
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 26th of November 2006 04:54:09 PM You can say what you feel, make sure it comes from the heart and you can never go wrong.
Is over 20+ passionfruit vines growing like crazy in my back yard going a bit overboard? :p
Joe Tuesday 28th of November 2006 10:05:43 PM Not if you like passionfruit! ;)
What is growing in your backyard?
Danial Tuesday 28th of November 2006 10:31:58 PM I don't have a backyard, unforunately, so, nothing.
Do you have a backyard and what's growing in it?
Marja Wednesday 29th of November 2006 04:32:11 AM Yes we have a back yard or garden as we say here :)
There are many things growing in it and I couldn't name them :p I know we do have an apple tree though! :D Most of the plants are kinda bare at the moment though as it's winter here now.
How many bedrooms does your house have?
mattie Wednesday 29th of November 2006 03:29:22 PM It has four bedrooms but one of them is a spare room.
Have you ever seen the blue prints (plans) for the house/building that you currently live in?
Danial Thursday 30th of November 2006 03:34:28 AM I think so :p when I was younger when we were first watching the house being developed.
Have you seen your home under construction before you moved in?
mattie Thursday 30th of November 2006 05:28:59 AM Yes, I saw the house I live in now while it was under construction. But it was being built for someone else at the time. It was only a few years later that my mum bought it.
Are they any large housing/landscaping developments going on near your house?
Danial Thursday 30th of November 2006 04:50:37 PM Yeah, in fact, they are making a new condominium near my house. :p
What's your favourite song?
Marta Thursday 30th of November 2006 07:50:01 PM Divinity by Future Sound of London... though now I'm often listening to 'fuerte no soy' by no idea whom:)
What's the longest time you've spent on the plane?
Ania Thursday 30th of November 2006 11:12:46 PM I haven't yet flown so the answer is 0. I dunno why but I've been avoiding this means of transportation. :p
When was the last time you didn't sleep even an hour during night?
Anonymous Friday 01st of December 2006 01:46:05 PM In this one night with the heavy earthquake around 2 years ago. I went to bed late as it was Saturday and while I tried to fall asleep there was this earthquake (5.4 if I remember well). Of course I haven´t slept after... :(
Do you also live in a region endangered by earthquakes?
Danial Friday 01st of December 2006 05:08:54 PM Geographically, I live in a natural disaster free zone, so we don't get affected by earthquakes and such. So, no.
Would you leave your hometown to live in a danger-free zone?
Ania Saturday 02nd of December 2006 02:52:18 AM Yes, I like challenges. ( I hope to have spelt that word correct :D)
What do you like the most?
Marta Saturday 02nd of December 2006 05:21:54 AM My boyfriend.
What's your favourite place in the world?
Petra Saturday 02nd of December 2006 05:50:02 AM my bed and Freiburg, a city in the south of Germany
What do you like the least?
Peter_fra_Oz Saturday 02nd of December 2006 05:20:16 PM fleas!!! :p
Are there times when you just know, no questions asked?
Marja Sunday 03rd of December 2006 05:15:40 AM Absolutely :) *hugs* and I know where that is true for me <3
Why do I keep getting burns at work?! :p
Danial Monday 04th of December 2006 12:51:20 AM Either you work in a place which has a lot of heat :p or ... I don't know :p
What is your dream job?
Anonymous Monday 04th of December 2006 12:58:05 AM I would love to be the wife of a billionaire... :D :p
What´s your actual job?
nyka Monday 04th of December 2006 02:07:07 AM I don't have any job I study yet 11 years. So I live like a billionaire.
How long have you studied?
Joe Monday 04th of December 2006 06:16:01 AM long enough... even though I'm not in school anymore, it seems as though I'm always studying something, because there's always something to learn
Would you prefer to learn through the education system or through "the school of life"?
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 04th of December 2006 02:43:35 PM Ha! Both!! There are some things just best learned through the school of life and other things you don't mind sitting in a classroom. Each have their place :)
Has your mind been rather preoccupied with something lately?
Isabel Monday 04th of December 2006 08:36:56 PM Actually, yes. :( I´m worried about a friend of mine who needs my help and my presence as a friend more than anything... but we´re too far away from each other. :(
Do you feel hopeless when you see someone sad and don´t know what to do?
Danial Monday 04th of December 2006 09:51:06 PM True, I just don't know what to do.
What would you do?
Ania Monday 04th of December 2006 10:24:32 PM I would just hold them and try to cry together. :)
Do you happen to be sad often?
Danial Monday 04th of December 2006 10:31:04 PM I try not to dwell on the negative points of life, I see no point in that. I'll try to look at the good points though.
Are you an optimistic person?
Ania Monday 04th of December 2006 11:39:26 PM Yes, I am! :D
Do you tend to like me? :p
Danial Tuesday 05th of December 2006 12:20:40 AM Yeah :p
And me? :D
Ania Tuesday 05th of December 2006 01:05:14 AM every now and then :p lol
Have you ever read any novel written by a Russian writer?
Anonymous Tuesday 05th of December 2006 09:28:49 AM Yes, I read a novel written by Tolstoj (Anna Karenina) when I did my A-levels. But of course I read the German translation as I don´t speak Russian.
Do you know any poems by heart? :)
Joe Wednesday 06th of December 2006 01:08:44 AM I used to be able to recite the entire General Prologue to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales by heart - in Old English. I don't think I could make it the whole way through it anymore, though :(
Have you ever come uup with an idea for a new invention of some kind?
Grinner Wednesday 06th of December 2006 11:03:13 AM Oh all the time Joe... i fancy myself as some kind of crackpot inventor actually... honestly! i'm always coming up with some kind or the other bright ideas on gadgets/gizmos that could help mankind better, and more importantly, make me some serious cash... and some of those ideas actually saw the light of day... however, i blame either the lack of marketing (showing just your missus the thingy and telling her it's the best invention on earth doesn't exactly make people run to your doorsteps!) or simply the big corporations trying to keep the honest little man down. it's all politics and connections, y'know?
Would you choose between true love -or- a perceived sense of responsibility to another? (okay, this is a real life issue i'm facing right now, so perhaps details could be helpful... too bad :))
Joe Thursday 07th of December 2006 12:57:58 AM True love. In my estimation, the problem with your other option is the word perceived... what's to say that you'll always have the same perception of it over time? I've found as I get older, that my perceptions on many subjects have changed - are you willing to take that risk on something like your emotions/love? I think true love is certainly hard to find, but when it's real, it's real, and doesn't change, regardless of what happens.
Should I quit my day job and start to write advice columns (like Dear Abby)? (gosh, I hope not!!!)
Psyche Thursday 07th of December 2006 01:02:38 AM Mmmm. True love? I assume that if you really love someone, you will also do your best to make that person happy and that way have responsibilities to make that person content, safe etc. If you "only" perceive some sense of responsibility to another person, it gets more like a brother-sister/parent-child relationship..perhaps.
I prefer love + natural sense of responsibilities, but both are good, in two different ways. And of course, true love doesn`t mean that everyone will take their share of responsibilities...and you can love someone just as much, while having that perceiving sense thingy! Maybe it is the same thing. Anyway, usually, there is always some kind of love involved when feeling like taking responsibility for someone.
Uh...but if you like...asked me to choose between those two without any nuances...I`d still take true love. Mainly because I am in luuuv at the moment <3 :p
SInce I suck at choosing between things, without going into a long tirade ending with rhetorical questions, I will give the next person an easier question :p
What qualities do you admire in a person?
Psyche Thursday 07th of December 2006 01:04:20 AM OKAY! :p Double-post!!! :p
I can answer Joe`s question then :p
Weeeell...I would say that I`d LOVE to read your imagined advice columns :p So, if I were to be purely selfish, I would say YES!! :D :p Could I be your PR person? :p
Joe Thursday 07th of December 2006 02:31:54 AM You could certainly be my PR rep, Nat. you'd be able to keep me in line! (because I will admit, I am afraid of Nat's a$$-kicking abilities! :p )
So - you're question was "What qualities do you admire in a person?". I'd have to say a sense a true friendship. I've had far to many people profess to be my friends, then bail out when things get too difficult, or if something else comes along. I depsise that - and admire the people who know what true friendship is a stick with it, no matter what. I think that's a quality that's just as rare as true love.
OK - if there was a party at Nat's place, who all would go?
(I'm there! :) I'm pretty sure I know who else would be there as well! :p )
Ania Friday 08th of December 2006 01:55:44 AM I'm sure there'd be also: Danial, Nadia, Javier, Osman, me :p, Pablo, Goran maybe ;),, Mery, Peter, Anya, Brett probably, Matt and lots of other PBasers!! :)
Have you ever been to a party in a swimming pool?
Anonymous Friday 08th of December 2006 03:37:52 AM Nope, I have never been...
Do you watch tv news daily?
Petra Friday 08th of December 2006 06:11:03 AM No, I prefer reading a newspaper. TV news are boring.
How do you cope with stress? Any suggestions how to relax before an exam?
Joe Friday 08th of December 2006 11:15:16 PM Well, one way I deal with stress now is to merely assert myself and my own feelings about the stressful situation as much as possible. I used to worry too much about what others thought, or the effects of my decisions upon others (often while NOT receiving the same courtesy from those others) - which caused a lot of stress for me. What I've realized is that I can only do what I'm capable of. Yes - we should strive to be better, but I should learn to be satisfied when I've done what I could. Now - as far as exams, I NEVER did any studying right before an exam. I don't believe in "cramming", as I think it increases stress and can confuse you by jamming too much info into your brain in a short time. Instead, I would do something fun before an exam - that way, I was relaxed and calm going into it. It worked for me, at least...
What makes you happy?
Marja Saturday 09th of December 2006 05:17:09 AM What makes me happy? hmmmm :)
Peter definitely at the top of the list :)
My Dad and my friends
Coffee and chocolate
erm, funny things?
Cute little kittens :)
Should I stop now? :p Lol
Ok, where did you go on your first date?
Psyche Saturday 09th of December 2006 09:23:21 PM To the cinema :)
What about you?
Anya Saturday 09th of December 2006 10:12:29 PM I went into the mountains and we went skiing in hip-deep fresh powdery snow on New Years!
what does 30 mean to you?
Psyche Saturday 09th of December 2006 10:27:35 PM Javer I think...as he is 31. Maturity.
What is your favourite number and why?
jvz8a Saturday 09th of December 2006 10:40:35 PM 12. May, to be precise.
Whatare you wearing?
Psyche Saturday 09th of December 2006 10:56:17 PM Old, holy (as in..lots of holes :p), black sports pants...and a pink singlet.
What about you?
lol, I am so inventing when it comes to questions :p
Danial Sunday 10th of December 2006 12:13:53 AM lol, holy :D
Orange shirt and some black pants. :p
Are you wearing black pants? :p
Marja Sunday 10th of December 2006 05:04:16 AM My jeans are black or well they're supposed to be, they're kinda faded now :p
What's your favourite time of year?
Anonymous Sunday 10th of December 2006 05:10:47 AM Please have a look at my nickname and at my avatar and then try to draw a conclusion!! :) It´s.... winter. What a surprise!! :D
How many e-mails do you write per day?
Tiger Sunday 10th of December 2006 12:20:27 PM Like: none! :D
Do you like to chew Asprin just for the taste of it?
mattie Sunday 10th of December 2006 03:26:10 PM No, I don't even like it when it's dissolved in water. :-/
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 10th of December 2006 05:40:17 PM Ewww! There's a taste memory I didn't need brought up :)
.... funny thing is I don't mind Tonic Water :p especially today when it was hot, just ice cubes and Tonic Water, no need for the Gin :)
Speaking of which, I didn't have tea tonight, too hot!
Do you find yourself not eating when its weather is hot into the evening?
mattie Sunday 10th of December 2006 05:52:59 PM It doesn't get so hot here that I can't eat during the evening. It occurs mostly during the day, around lunch time that I can't eat because of the heat. So much for summer though, we haven't really even felt the heat yet. It's been cold and wet. :(
Hey Peter, I heard about the fires in Victoria. You're in Melbourne aren't you? Did you see/breath in the smokey haze? =$
When did you last speak with a foreigner?
Ania Sunday 10th of December 2006 06:04:27 PM Today, my neighbour is Ukrainian. :D
When did Canada join NATO? :p
Ania Sunday 10th of December 2006 06:09:04 PM lol, right :p Canada's been a NATO member for less than a day :p:D
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 10th of December 2006 06:10:08 PM mmm about 5 hours ago :)
Yeah, the fires are up near New South Wales last photograph from space I saw in paper showed. Melbourne is all the way down at the bottom of the state so if anything we'd get the smoke after a day and we did :) Not been keeping up on the news of it though! hehe but I'm the person that gets woken up at 2am in the morning in Los Angeles in a big earthquake and then just ends up turning over and going back to sleep while its still shaking :p
I was with my Aunt and her partner at the movies and we came out and looking out of the multi-story car park structure you saw misty haze in the background out in the trees and houses on the hill. My Aunt has been to Los Angeles and we both made the comment how much this looks like the smog haze always there be it Santa Monica hills or Hollywood hills, just looked the same. Her partner was astonished and I was just happy that I'm not breathing that day in and day out anymore, instead I have to wait for massive state-wide fires *cheeky smile*
Melbourne is at the bottom left, that big circle inlet is the massive bay with Melbourne at the top of it. Tasmania at the bottom of the image :)
Most of the land mass on the top is New South Wales and I think a bit of the bottom of Queensland over on the top right of the image.
Vicki: If you trace down diagonally-left along the coast over in the smokey side, that litte inlet of water in the image before the coastline then moves upward diagonally in the direction to Melbourne. Just to the left of that in the land mass is Sale :)
Do you think any of that smoke on this image on Friday has anything to do with me cooking at the company BBQ hamburgers and sausages on the same day? :p
Marja Sunday 10th of December 2006 08:10:40 PM Hehehe of course not sweetie :D
Ah the other Sale, cool :)
What are you wearing? :p
Daan Sunday 10th of December 2006 11:53:40 PM New trousers and a new pullover! I'm feeling so very sexy now.
Do you agree that it is traumatising that my teddy bear sustained some burns when I was a kid?
Joe Monday 11th of December 2006 05:51:59 AM Sure - webecome attached to those objects, and as a kid, I'm sure something like that could be quite traumatizing.
Which way do you spell "traumatizing"? As "traumatizing" or "traumatising"? ;)
Marja Monday 11th of December 2006 06:16:21 AM I spell it with an s naturally :) I think the z in words such as traumatising/traumatizing etc is an American thing. In British english and oxford dictionary these words are spelt with an s.
Do you know of any other differences in spelling between British english and American english?
Tiger Monday 11th of December 2006 07:24:12 AM Yeah, like "learnt" and "learned". I think it's so hilarious when people use learnt. :p
What is your middle name?
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 11th of December 2006 11:53:39 AM Named after the Civil War General and 18th President of the United States.
Can you figure it out now? ;)
Anonymous Tuesday 12th of December 2006 12:16:19 AM Of course, I think it´s Grant, isn´t it? :)
Do you know where and when your surname was mentioned the very first time?
Tiger Tuesday 12th of December 2006 01:26:58 AM Hmm...somewhere in Switzerland, like, 800 years ago! :p
Where were you born? The time, the date, the place. :p
[color=red]Edit:[/color] The Zürich Kanton, I believe. :)
spak Tuesday 12th of December 2006 02:09:05 AM I was born in Berlin, Germany, in 9.01 AM, on 1, January.
What is your fav. color?
Anonymous Tuesday 12th of December 2006 02:43:09 AM This can change now and then... :D I think it´s blue at the moment.
Do you watch sports very often?
Tiger Tuesday 12th of December 2006 08:27:26 AM No way José! 'Less it's soccer...that's semi-exciting...
What's your favorite thing to do on the computer?
Btw, snowcloud, your sentence doesn't sound right, I would say like "Do you watch sports a lot?" or "Do you often watch sports?" :)
mattie Tuesday 12th of December 2006 11:30:44 AM Snowcloud's sentence sounds fine... =|
I have more than one favourite thing to do on the computer which is to use the internet and play The Sims =). I have a kind of routine when using the internet, which is to always check PhraseBase before looking at anything else, even before I check MSN or my E-mails.
What kind of computer screen do you have? LCD or other...?
Joe Wednesday 13th of December 2006 09:32:15 PM Just an LCD display...
Can you use your computer mouse as good with your left hand as your right hand? (or vice versa, if you're left-handed)

Actually "Do you watch sports often" is probably the more correct way of saying this. If I recall, although "a lot" is widely used, I think it's actually kind of frowned upon by sticklers for "proper" language.
Grinner Friday 15th of December 2006 08:50:44 AM Come to think of it Joe, i have never tried using my left hand to control the mouse... so for the sake of living cats everywhere, i will try it now *insertmouseshiftingimageryhere* ... okay, after that 20 second experiment, it seem fit to conclude that my left hand mouse skills are, in a scale of 1 to 10... probably 3? how worrying...
I roughly model my lifestyle(?) to richard gere's character in pretty woman :) ..okay by roughly i mean minus the millions of bucks that edward guy has! :p for example, i almost always use cash for payments (again, minus the many wads he always has in his wallet), i always have to have the top floor when staying anywhere, especially my office; i seldom take more than 4 hours of sleep a night and i am quite ruthless when conducting business (my partner leaves it to me to do the firing, which i have no qualms about) and generally, i just have to have the best of everything, which is good in a weird way since it pushes me to work harder to erm... make it harder for the debt-collectors to find me at any one place long :) ...okay so my random question is, How sad am i? ...okay maybe that is too easy... Do You have any movie characters you find yourself able to emulate? (yes, pray i don't have many more free time on my hands like i have now)
Isabella_Rose Sunday 17th of December 2006 11:51:09 PM Hmmm.... I find that I frequently do so with Elizabeth Bennett from the movie Pride and Prejudice. lol :)
Have you ever been skydiving?
mattie Monday 18th of December 2006 03:56:36 AM [color=blue]Non, je ne l'ai jamais fait. Je veux faire des sports extrèmes comme ça mais c'est vraiment cher.[/color]
No, I've never done that. I want to do extreme sports like that but it's really expensive.
[color=blue]Vous avez fait du ski?[/color]
Have you gone skiing?
Petra Monday 18th of December 2006 05:37:20 AM yes I used to ski when I was a child. But after I landed in a bush and my new blue ski suit was torn, my parents couldn't convince me to go skiing again ever after.
Have you ever been asked for a coffee by a stranger?
jvz8a Monday 18th of December 2006 09:10:35 AM Never. And I doubt that could happen.
Are you an opinionated person?
Isabella_Rose Monday 18th of December 2006 09:19:10 AM Yes I am, very much so. :)
Do you like to eat blackberries?
Joe Monday 18th of December 2006 09:34:38 AM Yes, I do. Wild blueberries are my favorite, but I have blackberry (and black raspberry) bushes growing in my backyard, so I eat them more often.
Do you have a garden (flower or vegetable)?
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 18th of December 2006 02:16:30 PM Yes and Yes :)
It would take quite a bit of space to list everything out here :)
I spent the weekend cleaning up the garden and cementing in a new clothes line with proper drainage and getting all the spirit level readings spot on :p
Are you handy around the house?
Isabella_Rose Monday 18th of December 2006 03:45:30 PM Yes, I am very handy around the house. I helped build my house (did almost all of the electric wiring) and I am good at fixing things in my house. :p
Can you hammer a nail straight?
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 18th of December 2006 05:32:14 PM Yeah, walls, carpentry, roofing, whatever needs a nail :)
Can you do Air Conditioning? I'm so gonna need it real soon, summer here! :D
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 19th of December 2006 03:49:08 AM No, but I learn quickly! :p
Do you like lots of snow? :D
Tiger Tuesday 19th of December 2006 04:20:29 AM Of course! But, I've never had more than a foot... :(
Do you like mustard on bread? :D
Petra Tuesday 19th of December 2006 05:50:37 AM not really, unless there is some salami between the bread and the mustard. But I eat my french fries with mustard.
what's the colour of the shirt you are wearing?
mattie Tuesday 19th of December 2006 08:11:35 AM It's gray, but I'm also wearing a black singlet and a green sweatshirt too because it's a cold day. :(
How's the weather there?
Tiger Tuesday 19th of December 2006 08:14:35 AM What the heck is a singlet? :D
Nice...very warm for just a week 'til Christmas!
How's your great aunt doing?
Joe Tuesday 19th of December 2006 08:16:08 AM I suppose as well as she (any of them) can be - they're all deceased.
What's one word you constantly misspell (in any language)?
Marja Tuesday 19th of December 2006 06:36:47 PM I often misspell words in my own language that have i and e like believe, relieve etc. I often get the i and e the wrong way round when I'm typing in a hurry :p
How many cars do you have at your house?
Ania Tuesday 19th of December 2006 06:43:39 PM Any! :p our car is in garage :D but i have some little cars, the ones I used to play with when I was a child.
What do you like in Christmas the most?
Joe Tuesday 19th of December 2006 09:27:47 PM the end of it... (yes, I don't really care much for the Holiday)
Do you have any fillings in your teeth?
Marja Tuesday 19th of December 2006 10:46:11 PM I have 2 I think but I kinda forget they're there, I can't feel where they are now unless I really try looking for them. I haven't had any problems with my teeth in quite a while now so, so far so good *touches wooden desk* :)
Does your house have 1, 2 or 3 stories(levels)? Or more even?
Psyche Wednesday 20th of December 2006 12:43:08 AM Two levels. But I only live in the second one :)
Do you think you would look good in an afro?
jvz8a Wednesday 20th of December 2006 02:13:56 AM the answer is, obviously

Joe Wednesday 20th of December 2006 07:22:36 AM Any of the sciences, but biology was my most-favorite.
How many digits can you remember pi out to (without a calculator)?
Isabella_Rose Wednesday 20th of December 2006 10:28:14 AM Not very many.... :p
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would you be?
mattie Wednesday 20th of December 2006 10:57:30 AM [color=blue]Je ne sais pas. :( C'est vraiment difficile à décider parce que le monde est un grand endroit. Je veux aller quelque part où je peux parler le français. Peut-être un endroit comme la France ou la Belgique en Europe, ou à Montréal, Canada où je pourrais pratiquer la dialecte québécoise. Je trouve la Nouvelle-Calédonie et le Tahiti intéressants aussi parce qu'on peut parler le français là-bas et ils sont dans l'Océan Pacifique. Il y a plein de choses à faire là-bas. Nouméa, la capitale de la Nouvelle-Calédonie est surnommée parfois "Paris dans l'Océan Pacifique" car il y a beaucoup de magasins grandes![/color]
I don't know. :( It's difficult to decide because the world is a big place. I want to go somewhere where I can speak French. Maybe a place like France or Belgium in Europe, or to Montréal, Canada where I can practice the dialect called "Québecois." I find New Caledonia and Tahiti interesing too because you can speak French there and they're in the Pacific Ocean. There's lots of stuff to do there. Noumea, the capital of New Caledonia is often nicknamed "Paris in the Pacific" because there are many big shops.
Joe Wednesday 20th of December 2006 09:30:45 PM And me? Well, there are many places I'd love to visit, but as far as where I'd always like to be, it's here. Home is a comfort, and although there's a world out there to be explored, I like to always remember where I come from, you know..?
Do you like clear blue skies, or skies with some clouds in them?
Isabella_Rose Wednesday 20th of December 2006 11:59:52 PM It depends on the day. Sometimes it is so refreshing to be outside under a blue sky. At other times I like to just look at the clouds, and sometimes waste a little time looking for shapes in them. :D
Do you like to stand in the rain?
(It can be quite pleasant, in summertime anyway)
Joe Thursday 21st of December 2006 02:39:37 AM Yes, I do - provided it's a warmer rain, and not freezing rain.
Do you prefer spiral notebooks or bound notebooks?
Isabella_Rose Thursday 21st of December 2006 03:20:46 AM I like spiral notebooks.
Do you like long hair?
Ania Thursday 21st of December 2006 03:28:14 AM Yes, I do. I love it, and I have long hair too, it seems sexy to me. :)
Do you like red pants (underwear)?
Joe Thursday 21st of December 2006 04:54:31 AM Not for myself... ;)
What's the last thing you bought?
Peter_fra_Oz Thursday 21st of December 2006 05:17:24 AM A 150gram bag of fresh raw Austrlian almond kernels for breakfast :p
Do you like nuts?
Isabella_Rose Thursday 21st of December 2006 08:29:31 AM Yes I do, and actually raw almonds are some of my favorites. :D (Very good for you too)
Do you eat health food?
Joe Thursday 21st of December 2006 11:10:46 AM Sometimes, but probably not as much as people think I should. I'm only on this earth once - I want to enjoy some of the "unhealthy" food too!
What kind of socks do you wear?
Isabella_Rose Thursday 21st of December 2006 11:35:25 AM Ankle socks in summertime, and in the winter wool socks.
What goal do you want to accomplish in the next year or so?
Tiger Thursday 21st of December 2006 07:24:36 PM Hmm... To become COMPLETELY fluent in German! And to get something like conversational Spanish. And to speak at least a little French. :p
Do you have an iPod? If so, which one? I have the new iPod Nano. :)
Joe Thursday 21st of December 2006 09:42:54 PM Nope, I don't have one, and don't plan on getting one either.
Do you keep up with current fashion trends?
Isabella_Rose Friday 22nd of December 2006 03:56:46 AM No really... I wear what is comfortable, though I do dress neatly.
Do you read the newspaper?
Joe Friday 22nd of December 2006 05:26:29 AM No - it's often depressing enough to hear of the world news on the radio and television, so I tend to not read the newspaper anymore unless I'm looking for very specific information. And besides - I have yet to see ANY news agency that actually delivers just the news, without putting their own political spin on things.
Could you ever become a politician?
Peter_fra_Oz Friday 22nd of December 2006 05:56:06 AM Probably not, I'm a people person but not a fan of the attitude and way I see politicians think and talk about people when you chat with them at gatherings, just don't want to join that crowd of people with that outlook on life and people.
Do you want to come to my company's party next quarter :p no clients or business people, just friends, maybe hire Wolfmother or some other band to play :)
Isabella_Rose Friday 22nd of December 2006 09:53:06 AM Are you asking me to go? :p Lol just kidding, nah, I'm not so interested in company parties. ;)
Have you ever jumped off a cliff? (Into water of course)
mattie Friday 22nd of December 2006 10:49:02 AM No, I haven't jumped off a cliff into the water, but when I went abseiling, I referred to it as jumping off a cliff. :p
Have you tried mountain climbing?
Grinner Friday 22nd of December 2006 11:13:31 AM No unfortunately, but it's on my to-do list! the plan is somewhere next year, at the highest peak in malaysia i.e. mount kinabalu with the darling wife* :) i have tried indoor rock climbing though some time back, but haven't had time to go back... but i will... one of these days... absolutely fun, so i can imagine mountain-climbing will be loads more fun... and pant-wetting *groan*
What are you doing on new year's eve? (hopefully no boring old-man stuff like i'm planning :))
Isabella_Rose Friday 22nd of December 2006 11:32:16 AM I don't have everything planned... I might go somewhere with my friends. :)
Do you give money to charities?
mattie Friday 22nd of December 2006 11:39:19 AM When there are people in town collecting money for a chartiy, then we often make a point of giving them what ever change we have. The Northland Rescue Helicopter sends out a donation envelope so my mum puts in $20. Something a little bit different is I like to give money to people who are busking in the street. Like, playing the guitar or violin, sometimes singing...
Have you ever busked?
Anonymous Friday 22nd of December 2006 04:59:38 PM Nope, I never did.
Do you like red roses? :)
Marja Friday 22nd of December 2006 07:02:24 PM Sure :) Especially if they're from my sweetie, a dozen maybe :D
Will you have turkey on Christmas day?
Osman Friday 22nd of December 2006 08:37:13 PM Nope, We don't celebrate it. But we have 'Sacrifice Fest' soon and there will be loads of relatives, candies and sweets around :D
Have you gone out today? (just to take some fresh air, no other reason)
jvz8a Friday 22nd of December 2006 08:41:27 PM I woke up an hour ago and I am getting ready to go out.

Veelakhu Friday 22nd of December 2006 09:44:34 PM Daily, sometimes not on the weekend. Sometimes I grow a beard, but still trim shave daily.

Isabella_Rose Saturday 23rd of December 2006 08:14:42 AM 25 liters of milk is a little over 6 and a half gallons, if I am not mistaken. :D
What is your favorite flower?
RickSR00 Saturday 23rd of December 2006 09:37:24 AM Isabella: 1 gallon = 3.788 liters (sometimes abbreviated 3.79)
I like the poinsettias (the Christmas flower)... they remind me three weeks in advance that Christmas is on its way.

Isabella_Rose Sunday 24th of December 2006 02:03:02 AM Because she did not want to share the power, or have someone try to take it from her.
Do you like to swim?
FaWzY Sunday 24th of December 2006 03:35:06 AM Who doesn't?!

Joe Monday 25th of December 2006 05:23:00 AM No. I had it all done on time this year (thank goodness!).
When is the last time you used public transportation (a bus, train, trolley, subway)?
Anonymous Monday 25th of December 2006 05:40:33 AM I use public transportation regularly as I don´t own a car. Whenever it´s too far to go somewhere by feet I use a bus or a train. The last time this was on Wednesday.
If you own a car, what colour does it have?
Isabella_Rose Monday 25th of December 2006 12:28:12 PM I do not own a car, but if I did I would like a silver or grey colored VW bug. :D
Have you ever seen a peacock? (And I don't mean a picture of one.) :p
Joe Monday 25th of December 2006 10:23:45 PM Yes, I have. When I worked at our local zoo, the peacocks ran loose throughout the zoo grounds (their wings were banded so they could fly away). I also had a friend in high school who had several peacocks for pets. She lived about 3 miles away from where I did, but you could still often times hear the peacocks calling one another.
Have you ever eaten "Pop Rocks" candy?
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 26th of December 2006 12:13:10 AM I have, but just once.... It was not an enjoyable experience. :D It's a very strange candy.
Have you ever sang in a choir?
Psyche Tuesday 26th of December 2006 12:52:09 AM Yup, for some years. It was fun.
Have you ever dreamed about being famous?
Osman Tuesday 26th of December 2006 02:27:50 AM Yes when i was younger. Now, i don't want to dream or to be.
Do you want to be a famous person?
Isabel Tuesday 26th of December 2006 02:33:17 AM No way. I like to be unknown and quiet in my own place. Hate to be the centre of attentions.
Are you shy?
Goran Tuesday 26th of December 2006 06:58:54 AM I am. :D
Is there any unpronounceable word for you in your target language/languages?
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 26th of December 2006 07:55:44 AM I am sure there will be some, I just have not found them yet. :)
Do you enjoy making scrapbooks?
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 26th of December 2006 06:06:22 PM Not made one yet. I've used similar techniques before in future projection excercises though :p that was fun.
Would you replace your telephone company with Skype and a Skype house phone handset?
Marja Tuesday 26th of December 2006 06:17:14 PM With the amount of time we spend talking to each other it would certainly cut costs quite considerably! :)
Are you going to go crazy shopping in the january sales? :D
Petra Tuesday 26th of December 2006 08:58:37 PM No. I don't like crowded places and people fighting for the best/cheapest offer, thus I try to avoid the january sales. But I'm afraid I have to go look for a new pair of jeans although I don't like it :(.
Were/Are you good at chemistry?
jenden Tuesday 26th of December 2006 10:06:48 PM I'm better now because I don't HAVE TO study it!
Are you a faithful person?
Osman Tuesday 26th of December 2006 10:52:17 PM Yes, i think.
What about you?
jenden Tuesday 26th of December 2006 11:04:51 PM I'm doing my best.
In some cultures, the 1st day of the year people make
"New Year's Resolution" in order to change something more or less important in their life.
What would be YOUR resolution?
Tyrrena Tuesday 26th of December 2006 11:14:07 PM I´m not pacient enough to wait for Jan 1 to make a resolution!!
passing on, in case the person below me wants to share their resolution
FaWzY Wednesday 27th of December 2006 12:57:26 AM 1280*1024 :p
Do you have a good singing voice?!
Former_Member Wednesday 27th of December 2006 01:15:45 AM uhhh my voice is terrible :(

Ania Wednesday 27th of December 2006 04:08:47 AM Will it happen if I reveal it? :)
How often do you forage in Wikipedia?
FaWzY Wednesday 27th of December 2006 04:24:50 AM All the time :)

Ania Wednesday 27th of December 2006 04:29:41 AM to my play list which consists mostly of Italian songs, I love them! :)
How many children do you want to have?
FaWzY Wednesday 27th of December 2006 05:27:35 AM None, I hate kids :p
What annoys you the most?!
Isabella_Rose Wednesday 27th of December 2006 05:35:09 AM I think what annoys me the most, is when someone is picked on just because they are different. ;)
what color socks are you wearing? :D Hehe
FaWzY Wednesday 27th of December 2006 05:38:48 AM Hmm.... NON!!
But I was wearing white ones earlier today :p
What makes you feel nostalgic?!
Peter_fra_Oz Wednesday 27th of December 2006 05:57:26 AM Thinking about good times with family and friends that are no longer with us.
Do you ever go to a cobbler?
Joe Wednesday 27th of December 2006 06:33:03 AM The last time I went to a cobbler (just to make sure - here in the US, a "cobbler" works with making/repairing shoes) it was actually for my hockey skates. He had the proper stitching equipment to repair heavy leather, so he was able to re-stich the uppers on my hockey skates.
What's the last thing you made with your own hands?
jenden Wednesday 27th of December 2006 06:40:15 AM The last thing I made with my hands was a wooden spoon as a gift to my wife. It didn't look to good but it was my first time.
What was your last prayer?
FaWzY Wednesday 27th of December 2006 06:41:23 AM I built a PC a few months ago! :p
When was your last time to pull a prank?!
Peter_fra_Oz Wednesday 27th of December 2006 07:01:29 AM Jenden - Last one was that my girl was safe and happy =)
FaWzy - Um probably a while back, normaly I seem to be doing it a lot to my Aunt's partner, he's a cheeky buggar!
What is the tallest you have been above the ground in a building?
Grinner Wednesday 27th of December 2006 08:03:36 AM That would probably the 32nd floor of the petronas twin towers, i have yet to reach the 88th floor :/ ...lousy security guards (i should add here that one of my two career ambitions is to do the cleaning of their exterior windows... 88 floors of glass windows to clean Baby! bliss... :) the highest i have gone on a gondola is 16 floors... even that was a rush!)
Do you ever get people commenting that you are... *thinks* (what's the english word for 'cerewet'?) um... difficult? not quite... 'particular to the point of difficult'? ...Or failing to grasp what i asked ;) Do you find yourself getting increasingly forgetful?
Isabella_Rose Thursday 28th of December 2006 01:28:18 AM Some people do consider me to be difficult, but only because they themselves are difficult. ;) And no I'm not particularly forgetful.
Have you ever walked in the snow with only a t-shirt on? :p
Tyrrena Thursday 28th of December 2006 03:38:24 AM Yes!, yesterday, in fact!!:p
Have u got telephone numbers u don´t know who they belong to written on slips of paper here and there because u´ve never bothered to write them in ur t. directory?
Peter_fra_Oz Thursday 28th of December 2006 06:04:15 AM Hehe no, I have the modern digital equivalent, numbers all in my mobile that I can't remember who they are :p I did get a t.directory but have yet to populate it and its still nice and brand new :) I just don't spend hours attached to my landline phone to probably end up jotting down names yet. It's the same cost or actually sometimes cheaper cost for me to use my mobile for calls.
Would you swim in the Ganges?
Shatzy Thursday 28th of December 2006 07:45:21 AM Ehm, I don't know, let's say it this way: Before I would swim in the Ganges, I'd take a very close look at the water first :D
Do you have some kind of a "dream trip", a trip in a country or to a place that you're dreaming of since a long time?
Joe Thursday 28th of December 2006 08:50:39 AM I guess there are many "dream trips" I'd like to go on. I've always wanted to dive the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, New Zealand looks absolutely beautiful, I'd find Russian fascinating. And easier question would probably be where would I not want to go?
Where would you not want to go? ;)
FaWzY Thursday 28th of December 2006 08:52:36 AM Shatzy, Yeah, many, one of them is Paris and another one, Istanbul, these are on the top of my list now Joe, anywhere where Soccer is worshiped :D
Does it hurt when you say "AHHHH!"? :p
Peter_fra_Oz Thursday 28th of December 2006 11:17:04 AM No, 'ahh' should always be a happy sound :D
Would you like to be a crewman on a yacht involed in drama on the high seas :p
Isabella_Rose Thursday 28th of December 2006 12:04:10 PM Might be fun for a month or so... :D
Have you ever knitted a sweater?
Osman Thursday 28th of December 2006 03:08:55 PM No, but I wear one of them which is knitted by my mum :D
How many books do you read per month?
FaWzY Thursday 28th of December 2006 06:45:49 PM Hmm.... From Zero to One, that's because I depend on the internet and eBooks mainly
How many songs do you listen to per day?
RickSR00 Thursday 28th of December 2006 09:36:28 PM Hm... well, it depends on how much I'm on the Internet and if I drive that day. I'd have to say, at most, 30-35 songs per day.
Have you taken advantage of post-Christmas sales yet?
Tyrrena Thursday 28th of December 2006 10:57:50 PM No, not yet.
What´s the title of the book u last read?
sanibel Friday 29th of December 2006 12:09:39 AM 2007 Writer's Market.
What are your plans for New Year's eve?
Ania Friday 29th of December 2006 01:54:52 AM I'm a bit disappointed about it because I was to spend it in Zagreb, Croatia. But my friends talked me into staying here with them, now they're lacking plans and I'm quite sad as I could spend this great day as I used to do during last years... with a lot of foreigners gathered in one European place... I got invitation from my cousin but I'm a bit sick and have nothing to wear :p so I dunno if I go there with him. I guess I'll drink a bottle of mineral water and do like 100 tasks in dynamics and kinematics :D and will go sleep. :S
Have you ever bought something dirt cheap? What was that? And did you like it?
Peter_fra_Oz Friday 29th of December 2006 05:11:49 AM mmmm ;) I think a nice meal at a hotel pub with the rellies and then train it into the CBD to one of the many parks for the nights festivities and then fireworks and whatnot.
passing the question on...
sanibel Friday 29th of December 2006 07:59:07 AM @ Ania... yes. I bought a beautiful, beaded sweater (small, glass beads) at a boutique marked $125.00! My price... $3.00!!! And yes, I love it!
@ Peter... hey, may I come join you for the New Year! Sounds like fun! :p
Actually, we will be having all our kids over for our own festivities! We'll be toasting in the New Year! :D
Passing the question on...
Psyche Sunday 31st of December 2006 07:31:35 AM I will go to my grandparents and have dinner there as usual. Then when the evening comes, we go home again and they come too. Then it will be as usual. Boring firework-thingies, lots of yelling etc.
Passing the question on...
Joe Sunday 31st of December 2006 08:02:45 AM I'll be at home on New Year's eve. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I really don't care much anymore for the crowds and all the hullaballoo.
Do you like pie - and if so, what kind?
Psyche Sunday 31st of December 2006 08:14:24 AM I like pie! Quiche Lorraine *yummy*
When it comes to desert pies, we don`t have that over here. So a pie for me is just...some French Quiche Lorraine :p
You agree with me when I say that apples in an "apple pie" is gross, yes?
Ania Sunday 31st of December 2006 08:27:33 PM I don't know. I don't like apple pies and I've never eaten them, so cannot agree nor disagree. :)
How many pairs of shoes do you have? :p
Joe Monday 01st of January 2007 01:52:25 AM Hmmm - probably 7 or 8. Some sneakers, some dress-type shoes, some boots for working...
What time do you usually wake up in the mornings?
FaWzY Monday 01st of January 2007 04:21:07 AM Depends, but it's mostly late unless I have early classes which sucks :D
What did you do to celebrate the new year :)
Psyche Monday 01st of January 2007 06:39:14 AM The family is gathered and we watch the firework the neighbors send up :)
Do you have any wishes for the new year?
FaWzY Monday 01st of January 2007 07:42:35 AM Yeah, tons, some can be done, but the others are unrealistic :D
Do you smoke?! :p
RickSR00 Monday 01st of January 2007 12:29:31 PM No, I don't smoke for three reasons:
1. I can't legally do it (not 18)
2. I'm an athlete, and doing so would hamper my abilities
3. I can't afford it
Did you see Dick Clark on TV for New Year's? (He has been improving every year since his stroke, I think)
Osman Monday 01st of January 2007 03:53:20 PM Who is Dick Clark? :p
TPBM drinks every night. (not water of course! :D)
Anonymous Monday 01st of January 2007 05:02:08 PM No, I only drink on New Year´s Eve and on my birthday. (Maybe I should extend to other persons´ birthdays! :p)
Do you drink too much coffee?
Ania Monday 01st of January 2007 07:57:43 PM Well, I used to until my English teacher told me that drinking a big mug of coffee in the morning wasn't the best idea. :D Plus I read in a magazine that only a cup of strong coffee really helps to wake up. :p
TPBM has also been in one of those great cafes in Vienna and drank delicious coffee.
FaWzY Monday 01st of January 2007 09:10:29 PM I've never been to Vienna in the 1st place, and I don't think I ever will, it's not on my travel list :D
TPBM has been to someplace tropical
Petra Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 12:13:36 AM I think the most tropical place I've been to is Teneriffa and that's not really tropical. So, no.
Does mixing up the threads happen to you often? ('Is that sentence correct?' could be another random question..)
FaWzY Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 12:17:58 AM Oh god yes, all the time :D
Are you going to the cinema tonight?!!
Psyche Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 12:58:43 AM Nope! I will stay at home and watch American Top Model season..eh...9320390 :D
What is your favourite TV show and why? :p
Danial Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 01:09:02 AM I love almost all comedy shows :D but for something a little to the serious side, it'd be Charmed :p lol, don't ask why, I just like magic. :D :D :D
Do you have a random question for the person below you? :p
FaWzY Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 01:13:22 AM I have a lot, I'd go with "The X-Files", it's so great, very original, redefined the genre
What's your favorite scary movie?!! :p
Joe Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 03:47:07 AM Certainly not any of the "new" scary movies - as they're not scary! (movies like Hostel aren't scary... they're gory. To me there's a difference). One of my favorites was Stephen King's Cujo. It kept me riveted to my seat the whole time, fearful of where that dog was going to pop out from and if the mother and child would get away safely.
Do you have any special New Year's celebration traditions you do?
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 05:55:32 AM No, I don't really have any traditions it just depends on the year as to what I do.
What would you do if your house was about to explode, and no one but you knew it? :p

Isabella_Rose Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 08:16:22 AM :D Marry you?.... Nope! :p (unless you happened to be very nice and of course you'd have to have a very good ring;)) Hehehe
Are there times when you don't know what day it is?
FaWzY Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 09:17:59 AM lol ok then :D
And yes, it happens to me all the time, especially on vacations
Do you ever listen all the way through a song that you hate?!
cosmonaut Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 11:21:25 AM yeah unfortunately this happens alot, i usually try to block it out of my mind.
Do you ever feel in a foreigner in your own country?
Joe Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 11:47:25 AM More and more each day... :(

Ania Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 07:29:40 PM I no longer eat breakfasts. I just drink a cup of coffee. :)

FaWzY Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 09:01:50 PM Hmm... Nope, I'm not into poetry to begin with :D
Do you ever thing about writing a movie?!
Joe Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 09:32:50 PM I've thought about it... it never went any farther than that, though.
Is there any type of famous monument close to where you live?
Psyche Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 10:01:18 PM Probably, but I never remember things when someone ask me stuff :p Mmm...but famous...naaah....not in my village at least. Except our aluminium factory which is the biggest in North-Europe :p But that is hardly a monument.
Describe a perfect day for you! :D
Isabel Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 10:09:24 PM A warm but not too hot sunny day, sat on the grass with a perfect book and perfect music to listen to. :D
pass the same
sanibel Tuesday 02nd of January 2007 10:18:41 PM The beach house on Anna Maria Island at the shores of Tampa Bay in the warm Florida sun, gentle waves, dolphins, all sorts of tropical birds here and there, my family laying in the sun next to me, Doug grillin' shrimp.... aaaahhhhhhh, this is the life! :D
*smiling with eyes shut*
pass the same
Psyche Wednesday 03rd of January 2007 06:43:56 AM A perfect day would be to be with Javier in real life :( Going around the streets, buy some tortillas and some ice cream and walk home hand in hand...and watch a movie at night, just lying close to him and hug him lots and lots :(
Passing on :(
jvz8a Wednesday 03rd of January 2007 08:46:08 AM My perfect day would be next to princesa Natalie. Talking, gossiping, watching TV, taking a walk... basically any activity, but WITH HER! (hugs and kisses included!) <3 :W
I don't want to break the chain... so...

Ania Wednesday 03rd of January 2007 10:49:35 PM A perfect day... Ohhh, a perfect day!! :) I'm flying to Naples to visit my friend! And as we promised each other he takes me to one of those lovely Italian cafes and then for a walk on the beach and I am wearing my lovely black dress I have for the prom. :) And we're happy together, talking, hugging etc... :)
Passing on, that's nice!!
FaWzY Thursday 04th of January 2007 12:07:33 AM My perfect day would be a day when the streets are empty and drivers are less insane so I could drive calmly for once in my life :D
How do you drive?! :p
Ania Thursday 04th of January 2007 12:15:44 AM i don't :D I've been to busy to get a driving license so far :D

FaWzY Thursday 04th of January 2007 06:39:19 AM Sadly no, I bet it's funny as hell!! :D

Isabella_Rose Thursday 04th of January 2007 06:44:06 AM Hehe, no, but wouldn't the guys go crazy if I did! :p

Do you know where P.Neruda is from?
jvz8a Friday 05th of January 2007 04:39:17 AM *goes for his book and reads*
Me gustas cuando callas porqu estás como ausente,
y me oyes desde lejos, y mi voz no te toca.
Parece que los hojos se te hubieran volado
y parece que un beso te cerrara la boca.
Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche.
Escribir, por ejemplo: "La noche está estrellada,
y tiritan, azules, los astros, a lo lejos".
El viento de la noche gira en el cielo y canta.
Neruda? Neruda...? That name sounds familiar...
Do you think there is life after death?
Psyche Friday 05th of January 2007 04:46:05 AM Not really. But I`d like that and I hope that :)

Are you scared?! :p
Ania Saturday 13th of January 2007 05:21:28 AM Never!
Why are you so? :D
FaWzY Saturday 13th of January 2007 05:27:19 AM Not yet, but I think I should be :p
What are you listening to right now?!
Ania Saturday 13th of January 2007 05:33:13 AM to the news, bla bla bla...
Do you eat dinners?
Isabella_Rose Saturday 13th of January 2007 05:38:07 AM Sometimes. ;)
What kind of books do you like to read?
FaWzY Saturday 13th of January 2007 05:39:02 AM Not usually, I usually eat once a day, it's usually a dinner/lunch.
Do you like playing card?! :p
Osman Saturday 13th of January 2007 07:18:23 AM Nope i don't.
repeating Isabella's question:
What kind of books do you like to read?
Photo_Ed Saturday 13th of January 2007 07:43:31 AM I like old detective novels, (action and mystery in one)
Where is your favorite place to read?
Isabella_Rose Saturday 13th of January 2007 08:10:27 AM Hehe, I like to read up in a tree! ;) Nice and quiet. :D
Where do you go to get away from everyone?
Photo_Ed Saturday 13th of January 2007 08:47:17 AM I hide in my car (it keeps everybody out but lets me go anywhere)
Do you like to drive?
Isabella_Rose Saturday 13th of January 2007 09:02:47 AM Yeah I do, sometimes... :)
What color is your vehicle?
FaWzY Saturday 13th of January 2007 09:20:48 AM Sky Blue!
What's your favorite culture?!
mattie Saturday 13th of January 2007 09:29:05 AM I don't have just one favourite culture. I like and respect so many different cultures that it would be impossible to choose the one I prefer.
What is you favourite language?
Goran Saturday 13th of January 2007 11:47:58 AM Catalan. :)
What's your favourite word in your target language?
Isabella_Rose Saturday 13th of January 2007 11:55:30 AM So far it's armastama = to love (Estonian by the way)
What language would you like add to your list of target languages if you had time?
mattie Saturday 13th of January 2007 12:25:47 PM Well I added Dutch to my list in my profile but it isn't really the third language I want to speak. I don't know which one I want to learn. I certianly have the time as I've got my summer holidays at the moment and I've been inside so much because it isn't even sunny!
How about you? "What language would you like to add to your list of target languages if you had time?"
RickSR00 Saturday 13th of January 2007 01:21:54 PM If I had the time? German... I've tried far too many times to learn it, but I end up so frustrated. If I had a great deal of time to sit in front of a book and a few native speakers, I might be able to learn it... but for now, I stick to Romance Languages.
Was there an event in your life that made you want to start learning languages, or have you always had a desire?
FaWzY Saturday 13th of January 2007 08:53:25 PM I always had a desire growing in a multi-cultural enviroment, I had neighbors that spoke different dialects of Arabic, and I spoke to each of them with his own dialect, then I met this Japanese girl on a vacation......
How hard do you think learning Japanese is?!
Isabella_Rose Sunday 14th of January 2007 05:31:40 AM I don't think it would be too hard. People all over the world speak it, so it's not impossible. ;)
How many brothers and/or sisters do you have?
FaWzY Sunday 14th of January 2007 06:12:25 AM I have 2 older sisters!
How old are you?! :p
Osman Sunday 14th of January 2007 06:16:23 AM 21 in April :)
How old were you when you were a child? :D :p sounds logical, heh? :)
FaWzY Sunday 14th of January 2007 06:47:30 AM Ain't I still a child?!! :p
*Looks for the pacifier* :D:D:D
How much is too much?! :p
Psyche Sunday 14th of January 2007 07:04:20 AM Asking people to bite your ass in your signature!!! :p
Tell me more about the Japanese girl you met on vacation! :p
FaWzY Sunday 14th of January 2007 07:19:49 AM There isn't much about it, and stop reading old posts :p
Have you ever met a Japanese person in person. :D
mattie Sunday 14th of January 2007 10:51:02 AM Yes of course! There are a lot of Japanese people in Northland. A school in Japan brings about 20 Japanese students to our school for a few weeks every year and we have three perminent Japanese people at our school. (It's a really small school so everyone knows everyone.)
Have you ever made friends with an exchange student?
FaWzY Sunday 14th of January 2007 11:45:00 AM I make friends to everyone and anyone, but unfortunately we had no exchange students at my school. :(
When was the last time you were really impressed?!
Isabella_Rose Sunday 14th of January 2007 12:38:52 PM The last time I was impressed... wow, that's tough... I guess it was when I met someone who said they had been studying a language for a month... and they could already speak it conversationally!
Have you ever met someone who is brilliant?
FaWzY Sunday 14th of January 2007 07:43:11 PM Yes, I met the Nobel prize winner "Dr Ahmed Zoweil" in the street totally by accident!!!
Have you ever bumped into a celebrity before?!
Marja Sunday 14th of January 2007 08:35:28 PM Well it's quite often you see actors and actresses from the soap opera Coronation Street around here because it's based in Manchester and maybe, just maybe you might catch a glimpse of a Manchester United player. Eric Cantona actually used to live 5 mins away from me but I never managed to bump into him though :p
I'm not into soaps or football so they don't really make me go oooh wow :p
I once went to a lecture given by Sir Harry Kroto in Manchester. He's the guy who discovered carbon 60 if there are any chemistry buffs out there :)
I've met a local news reporter from TV too.
When I was in Finland MC Pöly walked past me and my friend at Ilosaarirock in Joensuu and while were in the crowd watching Neljä Ruusua play, the drummer from 51 koodia was stood infront of us :)
Can't think if I've seen anyone else :p
Have you ever been to a place that lies right on the equator?
Isabella_Rose Monday 15th of January 2007 12:36:46 AM No, I haven't... :) Maybe I should. ;)
How many countries have you been in?
Ania Monday 15th of January 2007 02:31:32 AM 8, all European. :)
Have you ever been on a boat in the open sea during a storm?
Osman Monday 15th of January 2007 02:49:10 AM No, i would be really scared.
Do you think of visiting Turkey someday? :D
FaWzY Monday 15th of January 2007 03:38:27 AM Yes I do, I just love the country, the culture, plus it's the land of my ancestors :)
Do you think of visiting Egypt someday?! :p:D
Psyche Monday 15th of January 2007 03:56:08 AM Most definitely! I want to see the pyramids...but I don`t think I dare going there alone :)
What is your favourite country and why?
Joe Monday 15th of January 2007 04:00:09 AM I like learning about many countries, and have a long list of ones I'd like to visit someday. But my favorite is still the US. It's home...
What country do you know very little about?
Psyche Monday 15th of January 2007 04:33:13 AM Tadjikistan. Most countries, really :p
Do you think "Natalie" is a nice name?
Photo_Ed Monday 15th of January 2007 05:47:00 AM I think it's a nice name :)
Do you know what it means
Isabella_Rose Monday 15th of January 2007 12:15:22 PM Yes, my baby name book says it means Christmas Day and is latin in origin. ;)
How far away from a beach are you? :D
mattie Monday 15th of January 2007 04:14:36 PM It depends which beach. :p If I drive south, then the first beach I reach is _______ or _______________ Beach. That's about 30 minutes. If I drive into town, then I can get to the __________ in about 10 minutes which has a good beach. Further out of town, kind of north, there's _____ Beach. That's about 40 minutes drive. ;) Most weekends if I'm at my dad's house, then I can go for about a 2 minute walk and reach ______________. :p
Edit: Someone told me to take out the name's of the beaches. :p
Do you prefer swimming in salt-water or water with chlorine in it?
FaWzY Monday 15th of January 2007 07:55:07 PM Salt-Water, cuz Chlorine water is usually more like a big toilet.....
Do you like being sick?! :p
C_david Monday 15th of January 2007 11:22:34 PM Not at all!!!! just tell me who likes it?¡? :-S

Is it raining where you are right now?
FaWzY Tuesday 16th of January 2007 12:32:17 AM Not today, but it rained yesterday....
Do you draw when you're tensed?!
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 16th of January 2007 03:06:52 AM I draw when I'm relaxed. :D
Do you like to sing while you work? :)
FaWzY Tuesday 16th of January 2007 03:46:28 AM I do, if not I whistle :D
What's your most embarrassing moment ever?!!
RickSR00 Tuesday 16th of January 2007 10:35:38 AM Hm... it's rather long... but whatever.
I had a really embarrassing one this past weekend. I was working, and I was helping to unload firewood off of a big diesel truck. The guy who drove the truck said "You know... this thing runs off french fry oil." I had no idea what anything that is powered by french fry oil smelled like, so I went along with what he said. Then I told a bunch of people in the store, and I was basically laughed out of there. It's been a couple days now, and they still haven't let it go...
Are you watching TV and using the computer at the same time?
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 16th of January 2007 11:49:11 AM LOL, oh man... that does sound embarrassing. :p
No I'm not, but I have before. :)
Have you seen the Da Vinci Code?
jvz8a Tuesday 16th of January 2007 01:26:28 PM I only read the book and... I didn't find it that shocking.
Do you have any favourite clothing that is so old that someone in your family has already asked you to get rid of it?
FaWzY Tuesday 16th of January 2007 07:28:20 PM Hmm.... No, I don't usually hold onto old stuff unless they have sentimental values.........
Have you ever fixed something around the house?!!
Ania Tuesday 16th of January 2007 07:40:37 PM YEah, a lot of things! I love that, I'm very inventive and creative! :D I'm such a goldie! :D
Have you ever measured the length of one hair of yours? :p
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 16th of January 2007 10:17:45 PM No, I haven't but just a sec... Lol, it's about 2 & a half ft. from scalp to end. :p
What is the best book you have read this year?
FaWzY Tuesday 16th of January 2007 11:45:04 PM Nothing yet this year, it started with exams so.....
What nasty habits do you have?!
Isabella_Rose Wednesday 17th of January 2007 12:41:35 AM Nasty as in disgusting or as in bad? Well, since I don't have disgusting ones, I'll go with bad. ;) I sometimes spend the whole day reading, and completely forget to do anything else. :p Hmmm... what else?... Hehe, I listen to music that is too loud (not all the time though). I track mud in the house! :p I sometimes leave my hair in a braid at night and don't brush it the next day hehe... that's about all I can think of at the moment. :D
What were you doing last night?
FaWzY Wednesday 17th of January 2007 02:16:30 AM Definitely not killing a guy and stuffing him in my trunk!! :D
I was studying for today's French test, which I nailed. :)
Are you a Turkish music fan?!
Joe Wednesday 17th of January 2007 02:40:31 AM I really can't say that I've heard enough of it to be a fan or not. Maybe I should listen to some more to find out...
What household chore do you dislike the most?
Isabella_Rose Wednesday 17th of January 2007 02:58:10 AM Cleaning out the refrigerator, it is the worst job I know of... and it just happens to be mine. :p
If someone asked you for advice, would you give it to them? ;)
FaWzY Wednesday 17th of January 2007 03:05:20 AM I'm not the advising type, but if someone asks me for it, I'll give it. [IMG]http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/4866/yelwackoii5.gif[/IMG]

Petra Wednesday 17th of January 2007 07:02:45 AM I don't like it when people taking photographs of me and it's a long time since I last took some photographs myself (nothing worth photographing around), thus the answer is no.

Do you think snakes are cool?!
FaWzY Wednesday 17th of January 2007 08:57:33 AM *flip*

Have you ever hidden someone under your bed or in your wardrobe?

Have you ever been featured in your local newspaper for doing something?
FaWzY Friday 19th of January 2007 03:13:32 AM No, I only work in the darkness, when no one's looking!! :D

What would be your perfect first date? :p
Ania Friday 19th of January 2007 03:23:10 AM Don't ask in here! It's too naughty! :D
Why are we talking about dates now? :p
FaWzY Friday 19th of January 2007 03:59:31 AM Cuz you're chicks?!
Are there any "Dudes" in the house?! :D
Isabella_Rose Friday 19th of January 2007 04:29:17 AM Possibly, but I'm not one!
Speaking of dates...
What is the worst date you have been on? :p
squeak Friday 19th of January 2007 07:13:24 PM Set up by friends (apparently it's wrong to be single!) and not told about it until they took me to it and not being able to get out of it. The guy thought science was pointless (I'm doing a degree in it!) and so spent as much time as he could pointing this out and ranting on about why.
Do you like apples?
FaWzY Friday 19th of January 2007 08:04:08 PM Apples are ok.... And science is useless! :p
(I'm and engineering student, which means I apply science. :D)
What do you think of those who take a degree in scientific field?!
squeak Friday 19th of January 2007 08:59:50 PM That they're probably quite good at the area of science they do...? Here, to get in to do a scientific/engineering degree, you have to be very good at it. I know that doesn't apply everywhere, though, so it's a generalisation based on this university!
Which is the best area of science?
Joe Friday 19th of January 2007 09:30:14 PM Hi Squeak - so good to see you! Seems like it's been a while...
I'd have to say Biology... although since that's what I do for a living, I'm sort of biased :p
What's the area of science you dislike the most?
squeak Friday 19th of January 2007 09:35:43 PM Hey Joe! I know, I've not had the time to be here this semester...things have been to hectic. I'll be back more once my exams have finished though! How are you?
Dislike the most...organic chemistry!
FaWzY Friday 19th of January 2007 09:52:48 PM Biology, and I loved organic chemistry back in highschool. :p
Is science important?!
squeak Friday 19th of January 2007 09:57:21 PM Depends on the context. ;)
Is any one science more important than another?
C_david Friday 19th of January 2007 11:28:42 PM I think maths are the most important of all.
Do you like any science?¡?
FaWzY Friday 19th of January 2007 11:51:08 PM As I said before, not anymore. :)
Have you ever traveled on a ship?!
C_david Saturday 20th of January 2007 12:05:18 AM No, I haven't :( I'd like to :(

Do you want me to teach you how to drive?! :D
Ania Saturday 20th of January 2007 12:19:25 AM Do you want to get rid of me?
My question is simultaneously the answer to Fawzzii's question. :p
Isabella_Rose Saturday 20th of January 2007 04:33:10 AM No, I would never want to get rid of you, you're too clever and fun to have around. ;)
Have you ever eaten a date? :p
FaWzY Saturday 20th of January 2007 04:40:45 AM Of course I did!! :p
Isabella_Rose Saturday 20th of January 2007 04:46:54 AM Hehe, yes! Many times ;)
Have you ever met a spy?
FaWzY Saturday 20th of January 2007 05:25:39 AM Non that I know of, but I might have met one that I didn't uncover! :p
Are you a spy?!
Isabella_Rose Saturday 20th of January 2007 06:06:38 AM I not going to tell you! You want me to endanger myself?!? Lol jk. :p
Do you like coffee?
Joe Saturday 20th of January 2007 06:28:42 AM nope, not at all. A cup of tea is nice every so often, though.
How well can you skate (either ice skate, or roller skate/inline skate)?
FaWzY Saturday 20th of January 2007 07:27:52 AM Ok, I used to skate alot when I was younger (rollers & ice), I never fall! :D
What's your greatest fear?!
Isabella_Rose Saturday 20th of January 2007 08:19:43 AM I don't have any! I'm fearless! :p Hmmm... actually I just can not think of anything that I'm afraid of. ;)

mattie Saturday 20th of January 2007 03:14:50 PM [color=green]Je ferai de la pêche demain s'il fait du soleil.[/color]
I'll go fishing tomorrow if it's sunny.
[color=green]Est-ce qu'on parle plus d'une langue dans votre pays?[/color]
Is there more than one language spoken in your country?
Ania Saturday 20th of January 2007 05:20:30 PM Well... not! In fact it is only Polish, but there are a few dialects. :)
Have you ever considered being a spy? :D
Photo_Ed Saturday 20th of January 2007 08:07:32 PM No, I always wanted to be an international jewel thief.
Have you ever thought "how would I get out of a place if I was being chased?"
FaWzY Saturday 20th of January 2007 08:25:22 PM WOW!!
Yes, many times!!! :D
What about you?!
Photo_Ed Sunday 21st of January 2007 10:55:52 AM Yep, always looking for ways out when I go somewhere new.
Have you ever watched people andmade up stories for what and why they were doing?
FaWzY Sunday 21st of January 2007 07:22:07 PM Hey!! Are you me?! :p
I always watch people and make up stories about them about what they are doing now, what that did before, what they'll do later, but that's a part of me since I wanna be either a movie director or a screenwriter!! :D
What's your dream job?!
Osman Monday 22nd of January 2007 01:00:08 AM I don't feel like dreaming anything now. I need to relax.
Ok, What about your dream job?
Joe Monday 22nd of January 2007 02:23:39 AM Marine biologist, working on a boat in the middle of the ocean.

How many languages do you speak during the day?
Petra Monday 22nd of January 2007 03:33:06 AM yes, some. It's my dermatologist's fault. He can't do a surgery properly ;) Na, just kidding. It's normal to have a scar after a mole is cut out.

Isabella_Rose Monday 22nd of January 2007 10:44:20 AM Hmmmm... some, not really though. ;)

Do you watch Desperate Housewives? :)
mattie Sunday 28th of January 2007 02:45:01 PM Yeah I do watch Desperate Housewives. I enjoy it because it's amusing... there's no other reason. It's quite unrealistic. The new season starts in New Zealand soon.
Have you seen the show "Ugly Betty"?!

Petra Tuesday 30th of January 2007 06:56:16 AM No. I don't have time to watch sports competitons at the moment.

And I can't watch the quarterfinal. I hope the German national team will win against Spain and then I can hopefully watch the semifinal.

FaWzY Wednesday 31st of January 2007 05:31:43 AM I've thought about it, but never dared to do it, even if these people hurt me so bad...

Do you depend on people so much?!
RickSR00 Wednesday 31st of January 2007 08:08:05 AM Yeah, sometimes... depends on whether or not I was the leader to begin with, though. When it comes to working as a team, sometimes I depend on others so that everyone can do their share. I'm not so paranoid that I have to do it all myself.

What colour are the curtains in the room you are now?
mattie Thursday 01st of February 2007 04:14:15 PM Hmm, I don't even have curtains! I've got these white venesian (spelling?) blinds. They're so annoying because in the morning, the sunlight shines right through them. I'm kind of used to them now because I've had them for over a year, since we moved here. Mum has just never bothered to get some proper curtains in my room. Atleast they look stylish. ;)

I ask for explanation. And... if rejection was not only in my mind.. then... I don't know. Feeling rejected is a very bad feeling :(

In general?!? That sounds real special. ...
There are some countries I do not prefer to live in but I would love to have a villa in Italy to visit in the Spring and Fall. :p
Would you like to live in another country?
jvz8a Sunday 04th of February 2007 09:59:30 AM It is not the country what I want to change. I want to be with Nat, no matter where that is!
How fast is your internet conection?
Danial Sunday 04th of February 2007 10:04:23 AM Kinda fast :p I think
Isabella_Rose Sunday 04th of February 2007 11:38:21 AM Not bad... But not as good as I'd like. ;)
How many pairs of shoes do you have? :p
Former_Member Sunday 04th of February 2007 01:59:16 PM 3 pairs :D but i use one of them more than others(i mean my sneakers) ;)
What is your favorite animal?
helene Monday 05th of February 2007 02:05:42 AM HARD question!
Cats, giant pandas, polar bears, guinea pigs, hamsters, any animal as a baby, any animal friendly and any animal cute ;)
I love animals but they can be very scary too.
Do you often remember your dreams (the kind you have when you sleep)?
FaWzY Monday 05th of February 2007 02:08:36 AM Only the ones that seem so real...
Have you ever broke a promise?!
nena77 Monday 05th of February 2007 02:13:46 AM No, I try not to make any promises anyway.
Have you ever had a nightmare?
FaWzY Monday 05th of February 2007 02:17:06 AM Who hasn't?! :p
Do you have a childhood dream?!
Osman Monday 05th of February 2007 02:28:47 AM Yeah but now they are bigger :)
Would you like to be at the age of 7 now?
FaWzY Monday 05th of February 2007 02:31:07 AM No, I wanna be 16.
What do you regret the most?!
nena77 Monday 05th of February 2007 02:33:33 AM I do not have major regrets at the moment; I only regeret times I may have hurt people unintentionally
Are you listening to the radio at the moment?
FaWzY Monday 05th of February 2007 02:35:55 AM Nope, I'm listening to my own collection of Heavy Metal/Hard Rock.
What are you listening to?!
nena77 Monday 05th of February 2007 02:45:50 AM Panos, playing the clarinet :)
What languages are you trying to learn in PB?
FaWzY Monday 05th of February 2007 02:48:56 AM Lots of launguages :
What about you?!

Ahhh, baby, I was really trying to pay you a compliment! :) :)
Tamil, and less lately Spanish.
Do you like or collect antiques? Or do you collect anything?
nena77 Monday 05th of February 2007 03:07:36 AM Mmm... I collect everything.
Even those nice bottles of shampoo and showergel some hotels have. So, stanps, coins, phonecards, matchboxes, fridge-magnets, beer-mats, miniature bottles of alcoholic drinks, mugs, pencils and pens in weird shapes. Actually, that's it! Oh, and paper bookmarks from bookstores.
Do you now think that I should have a house the size of Europe to put all that stuff?
Veelakhu Monday 05th of February 2007 03:12:58 AM LOL, I was going to say, you must have a big house! :)
Why do people collect such things? :D
nena77 Monday 05th of February 2007 03:28:47 AM I don't know, I like them and some of them look really nice on the shelves [ie the miniature bottles]. Some of them are just too pretty to throw away .. :)
Have you made any progress with the language you learn on PB?
Petra Monday 05th of February 2007 04:44:33 AM I hope so, but I'm not sure.
Have you set any language goals for 2007?
FaWzY Monday 05th of February 2007 04:56:44 AM Just to do the best I can...
What could disturb you?!
Psyche Monday 05th of February 2007 10:12:27 AM You doing suspicious things with a salsa dip :p
What is your ultimate goal?
jvz8a Monday 05th of February 2007 10:14:10 AM YOU!!!! :(
How do I acomplish that? :(
Psyche Monday 05th of February 2007 10:15:43 AM By keep doing the things you have done so far, sweetie :( <3
I love you...:(
Where will I go next summer? <3
jvz8a Monday 05th of February 2007 10:21:52 AM Pigeons always fly back home :(
Any other question?
Psyche Monday 05th of February 2007 05:00:23 PM Do you want to marry me?
Awwww, så SØT du e!! Søtast babyen ever :( <3 Lille dueungen min!!!! :( <3 I love you :( <3
And yeah, as Javier will probably not be the one answering my question, here is an optional question:
Are you in love?
Marja Monday 05th of February 2007 05:16:03 PM Yes, I am in love :) and missing him terribly :(
Do you feel like being spontaneous?
Psyche Monday 05th of February 2007 05:28:04 PM Right now - yes! Usually I don`t like it...but now I just wanna stand up in class and scream on the top of my lungs "I LOVE MY BABY SOOOO MUCH!!!!!".
I just saw the pic of you two together!! Awww, so adorable!!! :( <3
Can we go on date, the four of us? :p
Marja Monday 05th of February 2007 05:33:58 PM Sure! :) *big hugs*
Where should we go? :)
Psyche Monday 05th of February 2007 05:36:11 PM Not sure :p I suck at being inventive. I`d like a fun place! Like..."tivoli"...eh...fun fair? Eh...carousels? And after some nice dinner at a snug restaurant :p IN ITALY! :p Or Greece...or...yeah :p
Do you have any better plans?
Osman Monday 05th of February 2007 06:06:23 PM I recommend you to visit to Istanbul if you want to see lots of historical buildings as well as romantic places :) For sure, you should go and drink Turkish coffee under the Bosphorus Bridge (The coffee may be a bit strong for you, though :D). Remember my Bosphorus Bridge photo with a romantic couple? XD
How does my plan sound? :)
nena77 Monday 05th of February 2007 06:12:27 PM This is excellent Osman! I think that the geophysical place that Istanbul was chosen to be built is probably one of the most beautiful places on Earth. My parents went recently and felt the same way.
Besides Istanbul, where else do you think such a plsce exists?
Osman Monday 05th of February 2007 06:26:21 PM this should be why Napoleon said that it was the capital of the world, maybe ;)
Most of the Spanish cities and Athens, Buenos Aires, Cyprus.. this is a difficult question! ;)
Have you ever thought of visiting another continent?
nena77 Monday 05th of February 2007 06:45:07 PM Yes, I´d like to visit Eastern Asia, Australia... Africa is a great mystery also. But never got round to actually do it.
What will you have for lunch?
Peter_fra_Oz Monday 05th of February 2007 08:07:20 PM That's a really good question, I am not feeling hunger much from recovering from jet lag and all from the trip to England, but I'm sure I'll sort out something yummy tomorrow when at work.
Are you a cheese "nutter" as well?
jvz8a Tuesday 06th of February 2007 07:47:29 AM mmm... no. think I am not. But that's my opinion only.
What would you do if, for each post you have so far, PB gave you a dollar? :D
FaWzY Tuesday 06th of February 2007 07:52:29 AM Awesome, $2200+ is a good bundle. :D
What if you were offered gold as much as you weight!?
jvz8a Tuesday 06th of February 2007 08:05:39 AM Are you warning me? I should start eating more tortillas, and I'd even let my hair grow :D
When was the last time you were at the doctor?
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 06th of February 2007 09:40:40 AM So long ago, I can't remember, it has been years. :)
Have you ever had Turkish coffee?
FaWzY Tuesday 06th of February 2007 09:51:09 AM Sure, it's very popular in Egypt that it's simply called coffee. :)
Have you ever had Arabian Coffee?!
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 06th of February 2007 11:27:39 AM Nope... maybe I can try it sometime. ;)
Do you have more than one email address?
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 06th of February 2007 11:34:23 AM Originally posted by Psyche

Can we go on date, the four of us? :p
Ha! Double-date with you and Javier, always!
Do you have more than one email address?
Yes I have more than one. A public one that I give out and use for filling out forms online that companies sell to scammers and spammers and gets lots of junk email *wink* and a private email for my closest of friends that is never used to fill out any form online.
Whats the last film that you watched?
FaWzY Tuesday 06th of February 2007 11:35:23 AM Accepted...
Have you watched it?!
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 06th of February 2007 11:39:13 AM Not yet, the last one I just saw with Victoria was Miss Potter =)
Have you done something nice for someone else recently?
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 06th of February 2007 11:43:05 AM Yep, I helped my neighbor carry in her groceries. :D
When was the last time you were really scared?
jvz8a Tuesday 06th of February 2007 11:45:17 AM I don't do many nice things. But I like to think I try to do something nice for the little cute one I love.
By the way (and talking about my cute little one), where are we going then? :p
EDIT: doble post. Last time I was scared? I am not sure. Last night my hands were shaking. Maybe that is.
I was going to ask which game this is, but I already remembered :D
Do you have good memory? :p
Peter_fra_Oz Tuesday 06th of February 2007 12:07:17 PM For most things yes, an incredible memory, lots of facts and important tidbits on allsorts, yet for some reason I really suck at remembering other things like dates, where I left my mobile phone last, etc. :(
Where are we going? Good question, maybe somewhere here if you guys accept the invitation :)
How quickly can you learn new things?
FaWzY Tuesday 06th of February 2007 12:09:43 PM Depends on the nature of these things, but usually I'm a fast learner. :)
Do you have a flying broom?! :p
Osman Tuesday 06th of February 2007 12:36:15 PM No, lol!
Is your pc a Philips?
FaWzY Tuesday 06th of February 2007 12:52:42 PM No, i built it myself. :)
Can you build a PC?!
jvz8a Tuesday 06th of February 2007 12:57:23 PM No, but I can destroy one :D
Should I go to bed now?
Actually... it doesn't matter the answer, as I am going now :p Good night!
FaWzY Tuesday 06th of February 2007 01:12:32 PM lol, you should, if you gotta go you gotta go.. :p:D:p
Have you ever been stalked?!
nena77 Tuesday 06th of February 2007 04:03:46 PM No, not that I know of.
sanibel Tuesday 06th of February 2007 10:09:15 PM I don't think so. I was asked out by a guy in highschool 33 times, though. I said no all 33 times. Didn't get it....
Have you been on a date lately? :p
Ania Tuesday 06th of February 2007 10:12:16 PM lately means a month ago, doesn't it? :D
Have you ever cheated your gf/bf/husband/wife? :p
sanibel Tuesday 06th of February 2007 10:31:00 PM No.
Do you still talk with your ex gf/bf/husband/wife? :p
nena77 Tuesday 06th of February 2007 11:57:11 PM Not with all of them.
Would you invite an ex to your wedding?
FaWzY Wednesday 07th of February 2007 12:16:18 AM I don't see why not...
What would you do if you can't go shopping anymore?
nena77 Wednesday 07th of February 2007 12:29:47 AM Given the fact that i am a woman, and that shopping is a way of relaxing, I'd say I would have to find another way out.
For Women: Would you go shopping with a man?
For Men: would you go shopping?
jvz8a Wednesday 07th of February 2007 12:35:15 AM I have to. But I dislike going to buy clothes and the like. It is incredibly boring. I might end up buying the first thing that suits (of course, you can guess MANY things suit me) and finish with the torture :p
TPBM can think how annoying I can be if I am not the one buying anything, and I am only there as company :p
EDIT: Okay!!!! This was made on purpose! :$
Only to know if you are paying atention! Transform the sentence into a question :D
nena77 Wednesday 07th of February 2007 12:45:21 AM Yes, I can imagine :p
It's amazing how diffrently shopping is viewed by men and women. We end up trying 20 different dresses, all similar to another, but when we find the one that fits, doesn't make us look fat, is the right shade of reddish-brown and does not cost a fortune, we think it as a good buy. You just buy somehting that can be worn. ;)
Can you understand what I am talking about?
jvz8a Wednesday 07th of February 2007 12:51:10 AM ABSOLUTELY!!! :p
but... there is not a feminine side in all men and a masculine side in all women? Then, there must be a coincident point... at least for some seconds! :p Don't you think?
nena77 Wednesday 07th of February 2007 12:58:58 AM Yes, for some seconds. The first few seconds actually, after that comes the usual: "This looks fine, the last one looked perfect, this one is the most amazing thing I've ever seen worn, how much longer, this is the third shop we've been in... etc".
Haven't you done this at least once in your life?
sanibel Wednesday 07th of February 2007 03:07:16 AM Yes (I'm ashamed to admit) shopping for prom dresses with my daughters. After the 80th dress: "This looks fine, the last one looked perfect, this one is the most amazing thing I've ever seen... *sigh* $$$$$$$$$
Have you ever felt guilty spending so much money on an item worn once? :D
nena77 Wednesday 07th of February 2007 03:12:47 AM I guess the most expensive piece of garment worn once [or generally, worn] by me has to be the wedding dress. It did worth it, to be honest, it looked amazing in the pictures, but still, this whole wedding-industry is just getting worse.
Have you thought of doing a bit of retouch to your old clothes so you don't have to buy new ones?
sanibel Wednesday 07th of February 2007 03:29:10 AM I changed the buttons on a blouse once. And I often buy a new piece to go with and old one to liven it up a touch but generally, if it looks old and worn, out it goes!
Do you wear all the clothes in your closet? (not at once, silly) :p
nena77 Wednesday 07th of February 2007 04:03:05 AM Yes, some less often than others, but I do not have clothes that I never wear.
Do you like classical music?
Ania Wednesday 07th of February 2007 04:35:48 AM Yes, I'm fond of it, I used to go to a music school for 6 years. ;)
Can you play any instrument?
nena77 Wednesday 07th of February 2007 04:42:35 AM Unfortunately no, I am music-illiterate.
Do you like having framed photos in your house?
Ania Wednesday 07th of February 2007 04:49:26 AM Some of them yes, but really good shots are printed as posters so I can enjoy them. :)
Is photography one of your passions?
FaWzY Wednesday 07th of February 2007 05:08:29 AM Yes it is, but I don't do it that much though, and I mostly delete the photos when I do...
Did you check my "Arabic Music Videos" thread?! :p
Ania Wednesday 07th of February 2007 05:10:13 AM yeah, I've just done that! :p
Petra Wednesday 07th of February 2007 07:42:53 AM quite big I guess. too big to be able to visit every country.
Do you have freckles?
Petra Wednesday 07th of February 2007 07:43:07 AM *rolling the pages* (or what is it you always say, when this happens? flip the pages?)
Joe Wednesday 07th of February 2007 08:27:03 AM nope - no freckles here...
Do you have a favorite picture (either an old family photo, or even one from some sort of print media - a magazine, whatever)?
FaWzY Wednesday 07th of February 2007 08:33:48 AM Yes, I have many... :)
Do you get crazy thoughts?!
Veelakhu Wednesday 07th of February 2007 08:39:06 AM I have many that are favorites, but I do like one in particular. It is of my four kids while on vacation in the Rocky Mountains. They were all standing looking at the camera and they all had a look of adventure, like they were all thrilled, and happy to be in the mountains. That was a very good day. **(oh man, my eyes are watering)**
pass on the question
sanibel Wednesday 07th of February 2007 09:18:50 AM @ FaWzY:
I get adventurous, interesting, and even daring thoughts, but no, never crazy ones. :D
Are your thoughts rational? :p
Veelakhu Wednesday 07th of February 2007 09:23:08 AM Depends on who you talk to. :p
Do all our thoughts have to be rational?
sanibel Wednesday 07th of February 2007 09:29:44 AM It's a good start for a healthy life I suppose. :)
Do you have thoughts for the future?
jvz8a Wednesday 07th of February 2007 09:58:23 AM *daydreams*...........
What should I do if I want to export yellow elephants to your country? (yeah... assume I already have the yellow elephants!!)
sanibel Wednesday 07th of February 2007 10:43:10 AM Arrange for shipping, feed, housekeeping, and lots and lots of red tape! :p
(I'm assuming those yellow elephants are healthy?!? :D)
What are you doing tonight besides posting on PB? :p
Joe Wednesday 07th of February 2007 11:12:10 AM Watched the last period of my hometown hockey team's game, then watched some of the Minnesota vs Dallas hockey game on cable TV. Getting ready for bed now.
WHat's the dumbest thing you've ever done?
FaWzY Wednesday 07th of February 2007 11:18:20 AM I've done lots of dumb things that I don't regret. :p
Do you use P2P?!
Ania Wednesday 07th of February 2007 02:13:38 PM I used to.
Are you interested in things happening around your area?
FaWzY Wednesday 07th of February 2007 02:33:07 PM I'd die of confusion if i did, it's the most active area when it comes to action, you know. ;)
What is your greatest talent?!
nena77 Wednesday 07th of February 2007 07:15:44 PM Oh, where can I begin... So many :p
jvz8a Wednesday 07th of February 2007 08:14:48 PM mmm... greatest? I don't know if it is a talent... but... the greatest in me.... is the love I feel for certain girl called Natalie. But if it is not a talent, certainly it is the best in me.
When was the last time you took a long walk (more than an hour)?
Former_Member Wednesday 07th of February 2007 08:34:21 PM hmmm, i do it often, i like walk long time ;)
How moch money you like earn ? :D
Joe Thursday 08th of February 2007 12:03:31 AM Enough to not have to worry about things would be nice.
How often do you get together with your relatives?
nena77 Thursday 08th of February 2007 12:36:36 AM With my parents and brother, we eat together at least once a week; as far as the rest of the relatives are concerned, we are a pretty big group [something like 21 first cousins] so we get togetehr at weddings and stuff like that. We should have one of these family reunions though, I think they are fun.
Have you ever been in a family reunion?
FaWzY Thursday 08th of February 2007 12:46:43 AM Oh god, lots of them, I used to enjoy them when I was younger, used to play with my cousins, now each one went down his own path and it's a very cold reunion with awkward silences and gossip, ...
Have you ever carved your name on something before?! :D
nena77 Thursday 08th of February 2007 12:54:15 AM Yes, mainly trees and park benches, school desks, and I have also written my name on wet cement. It is still there!!
What was the first word you said? [not counting "mum, dad, nan" etc]
Mariam87 Thursday 08th of February 2007 05:09:05 PM lol How could I know that?
How often do you visit your grandparents?
Former_Member Thursday 08th of February 2007 05:47:52 PM some times, not often!!!
Who is your hero?
FaWzY Thursday 08th of February 2007 08:49:29 PM My problem in life is I don't have one. :(
Former_Member Thursday 08th of February 2007 08:59:33 PM so, where is your question Fawzy? :D
FaWzY Thursday 08th of February 2007 09:11:28 PM My question is your question, hence "Passing on..."
jvz8a Thursday 08th of February 2007 10:12:05 PM mmm... what? The hero one?
lol :D I read tabout your probelm without reading the question.... and I was like... mmm... he doesn't have a life? :p lol I have to read the question first :p
My hero! Natalie baby! And she knows why :( :W
Would you use a check spelling botton if PB gave that option for every of your posts?
FaWzY Thursday 08th of February 2007 10:23:19 PM I usually use the spelling check on my google toolbar when I type in French. :D
Why do girls get angry over trivial reasons?!
nena77 Thursday 08th of February 2007 10:36:11 PM Because they are not trivial for us, apparently. And because we have the tendency to overanalyse the why, the when, the how, and so find inexistent hidden reasons for your doing/not doing something. But that's our nature; we are the complicated gender ;)
And why are men so inconsiderate sometimes?
jvz8a Thursday 08th of February 2007 10:46:15 PM Unfortunately I can speak for all, but only for me. And in my case it is because I am kind of slow for so many things. :( Lack of full understanding of the other is a barrier we always try to over come. sometimes we can, some other we simply don't even see the wall and smash our faces against it :(
If you have a ouple... how has he/she changed your life?
If you don't... what would you change for him/her?
nena77 Friday 09th of February 2007 02:36:12 AM It's stuff I cannot explain; words are too little. It's like everything I have lived so far and however happy or fulfilled I thought I was is too small compared to what I feel right now. I feel empty without him, I want to share every moment with him, and most of all, I know that I can share my innermost thoughts and fears without feeling that I am judged. The words "other half" are true, he completes me.
Have you ever felt this way?
jvz8a Friday 09th of February 2007 02:45:07 AM e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y
I feel very lucky for what I am living. And I can say this is the best I have ever felt.
I want a lemonade right now. What about you?
nena77 Friday 09th of February 2007 04:51:00 AM I just had a 3-citrus fruts juice, it was quite tasty I must say.
Do you think that cola drinks [like Coke, Pepsi etc] Aare bad for your health?
FaWzY Friday 09th of February 2007 06:08:42 AM No, I think it's all a hype.
Do you think mobile phone signals are bad for your health?!
Isabella_Rose Friday 09th of February 2007 06:12:12 AM I have hear that they are... but really I'm not sure. ;)
Have you ever changed a light bulb?
FaWzY Friday 09th of February 2007 06:27:51 AM All the time, never got shocked. :p
Have you ever been electrified?!
Isabella_Rose Friday 09th of February 2007 07:39:18 AM Nope! I almost did when I was wiring our house, but I was lucky. ;)
Do you like to take pictures of people or scenery?
mattie Friday 09th of February 2007 08:12:43 AM I prefer taking photos of scenery.
Have you taken a photography course?
FaWzY Friday 09th of February 2007 09:10:49 AM Nope, never.
Have you ever taken a photo with a long shutter exposure?!
Joe Friday 09th of February 2007 09:59:23 AM Several times - some for photographing lights at night, and sometimes when photographing small streams with running water and riffles.
What's your favorite flavor?
nena77 Friday 09th of February 2007 03:44:49 PM Sour, I can actually eat a whole lemon [plus the peel :p]
What was the best holiday you 've ever had?
Joe Saturday 10th of February 2007 02:02:20 AM Any of the ones where I've been at the ocean.
What's one topic in learning your target language that you are having difficulty understanding?
nena77 Saturday 10th of February 2007 02:46:17 AM One? More like all of them. I'd say mainly the structure of the sentence, also the tenses of the verbs. But I guess it is because I don't have enough time to spend on studying it...
What was the reason for your chosing your target language?
FaWzY Saturday 10th of February 2007 02:53:22 AM Turkish : My Turkish roots.
Japanese : A Japanese girl I used to know, and then the culture took over me.
Korean : Korean media.
What do you do when your mouth tastes bitter?!
nena77 Saturday 10th of February 2007 03:04:32 AM Have something sweet, preferably some chocolate ;)
Have you ever watched the English series "Yes, Minister"?
Mariam87 Saturday 10th of February 2007 03:05:14 AM I eat something sweet or drink water.
What was the name of the last movie you watched?
FaWzY Saturday 10th of February 2007 03:14:05 AM I don't usually watch English media.
nena77 Saturday 10th of February 2007 03:35:43 AM I prefer my coffee black.
What's your favourite TV program?
jvz8a Saturday 10th of February 2007 04:13:39 AM I don't have a favourite one. I almost don't watch TV.

nena77 Saturday 10th of February 2007 04:20:23 AM I don't want to jinx it, but none so far!!
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
FaWzY Saturday 10th of February 2007 06:33:44 AM Hollywood... :p
What would be your dying wish?!
nena77 Saturday 10th of February 2007 04:47:25 PM !!! I haven't really thought of it yet.
What person would you like to be stranded with you on a deserted island?

I went to Athens for the previous ones and had such a good time that I decided to visit Beijing on 2008. Unfortunately, it will be slightly difficult, the way my life is at the moment, but who knows, I might be able to go. I'd love to, and China is one of the countries that really intrigues me.

Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 11th of February 2007 07:37:42 AM Only once, at a Italian and Greek deli I used to manage part-time while at Uni.

Stupid kid.
Do you know C.P.R. or any other emergency medical training?

Do you think everyone is set to be a parent?!
nena77 Monday 12th of February 2007 06:38:14 PM Some people are just not the right type [as they themselves say]; however, many of such people become excellent parents when the time comes. So, I guess it is something that you do not know unless you experience it.

RickSR00 Thursday 15th of February 2007 06:25:31 AM Two situations:

This is somewhat often, but I'm active enough that I can eat a lot without being overly heavy.

How did you cheat in school exams/tests?
Psyche Thursday 15th of February 2007 08:35:37 PM Mmm...I must say that I have never cheated before. Weird, I guess...for most of my friends have (at least in lower grades - not now). If I would cheat, I would...not sure :S I was always too afraid to get caught to write notes on my hand or anything.
Passing on :)
Joe Thursday 15th of February 2007 08:42:40 PM I never cheated on my exams. Never felt the need to - I was a pretty goo student, and actually I always felt thatb if I didn't actually know the information, then I deserved the bad grade.
What was the most difficult exam you ever took?
jvz8a Thursday 15th of February 2007 10:24:19 PM It was a physics exam. I opted to take it to improve the grade. But I was there for nearly five hours :S

Can you tell us about your first date?
RickSR00 Wednesday 21st of February 2007 11:57:46 AM I guess it was with four other people... we went to a movie. Nothing really juicy happened.

What's the strangest food you've ever tasted?
FaWzY Saturday 24th of February 2007 06:14:53 AM I've never had any kind of food that I'd consider strange, so the strangest would be Cheese Cake, in our culture, cheese is only sour and rarely used in sweets, other thing would be pineapple pizza...
FaWzY Sunday 25th of February 2007 12:01:26 AM Yes. :p

Mmm...I picture myself living in Mexico with my precious Javier, taking an english tutoring wannabe- "licenciado"...being happy, maybe I am engaged or even married (:O!!! *EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK*)!

Ania Tuesday 27th of February 2007 11:42:34 PM Oh, it's a nice question. In 2015 I will be 27!!! :O! omg, that means I will have moved out by then! Let me picture one of the days in 2015.
Wonderful sunny day. Very hot! Big, white house with a huuuge terrace and a lot of flowers. Big garden with lemon, orange and olive trees. Ania is walking by with her wonderful, handsome and lovely handsome - probably some hot Italian. :p

Psyche Friday 02nd of March 2007 02:46:50 AM I don`t work. I sorta had a job, but they don`t call me for shifts anymore. Well, they haven`t in AGES. Half a year. I guess I must have screwed up or anything, because I see new people working there all the time.
I can let this question pass on.
RickSR00 Saturday 03rd of March 2007 10:44:10 AM I work in a deli. I scrub floors, sanitize dishes, basically get all the meat off everything in the store.
Do I like it? It's not so bad. I make pretty good wages for a high school kid doing it.
If I didn't have a job, I could probably do more studying, but that would become so mundane after a while, so I appreciate having a job.
When did you get your first car? What kind of car was it?
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 04th of March 2007 03:35:33 AM VW Beetle :p
I used that car to learn Auto Body Repair, Auto Painting, and Customised Auto Interiors (Industrial sewing machines, I still have the scars! :p) - I 'tricked' that car out so sweet, but still I am put to shame by the car television programmes today like "Pimp my Ride" :p
Do you get to have siestas after lunch? *pouts*
C_david Sunday 04th of March 2007 06:16:06 AM Hey!!! I always have the time, but I don't like them; anyways I almost always have siestas after lunch :(
In how many languages do you play TPBM?¡?
Joe Sunday 04th of March 2007 07:06:46 AM Only two. English and Russian.
Did you get to see the lunar eclipse tonight?
Osman Sunday 04th of March 2007 11:25:31 AM Nope, but it could be seen clearly from Turkey.
Do you think of blogging in your target language?
Peter_fra_Oz Sunday 04th of March 2007 04:33:39 PM No, not yet.
Do you think that is a bad thing?
Joe Monday 05th of March 2007 06:00:12 AM No, not at all.
What was your favorite childhood book?
Osman Monday 05th of March 2007 03:51:01 PM Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. I am still a fan of his books ;)

How many books do you read durin the year?
Psyche Monday 05th of March 2007 11:06:50 PM Not many. Maybe 3-4. A few years ago I read a lot more, maybe 1-2 a week. I was obsessed! I read and read and read and read...I also read a lot of newspapers and magazines. My family said I read too much. I think I did..I was addicted, I loved it. Then after a few years, I got burned out...so now I only read magazines. Funny how things go.
What is your favourite magazine/newspaper?
Almadorcia Tuesday 06th of March 2007 08:19:24 AM Polish newspaper "Gazeta Wyborcza" and the small magazine that I do with my friends "Otwarte Klatki"("Opened Cages"):D

What's your all-time favorite movie?!
Joe Tuesday 06th of March 2007 10:53:33 AM Hmmm... tough one, I have a lot of favorites. Right now, probably still the Lord of the Rings movies - I seem to watch those at least once a month on DVD.

FaWzY Wednesday 07th of March 2007 05:08:10 AM Probably choosing Engineering. :(
What was the highlight of your day today?
nena77 Wednesday 07th of March 2007 05:14:29 AM It is not a regret, it's basically my worrying about my future and being jobless and what am i going to do with my life, and I have no money, and I am nearing 30 etc etc. You just have to be patient; if you have worked hard and have prepared for the future, eveything comes at its own time, you just have to be careful to catch the chance that is being given to you.
Do you use msn or other such stuff to talk to friends?
Almadorcia Wednesday 07th of March 2007 05:17:13 AM talking with my friend:)

yes, I use msn but i have always problems with opening it, so I prefer skype.
and again the same stupid question:
What color is your pijama? :D
nena77 Wednesday 07th of March 2007 05:41:34 AM PINK! I am a girl :)

FaWzY Wednesday 07th of March 2007 07:01:19 AM A "Teach Yourself Turkish" book. :D
How many "Teach Yourself..." books do you have?!
Almadorcia Wednesday 07th of March 2007 07:06:05 AM One, to Brazilian Portuguese

zarxas Wednesday 07th of March 2007 08:56:06 AM My answer is gonna be strange,but I don't like museums,so I never been in one of them.
something or somebody who gets on your nerves when you see him?
Almadorcia Wednesday 07th of March 2007 05:43:58 PM Polish prime ministar, president, minister of education and minister of enviroment. Four veeeery stupid guys who do many stupid and bad things in Poland. And none can help it, because they have authority.

Veelakhu Monday 12th of March 2007 08:45:16 AM Nope, don't think I have ever heard of it either. :p I am guessing it is greek.

What bugs you in your motherland?

What magazines/newspapers do you like reading? Justify your choice.
LOL, Ania, you just sounded like an English exam paper. :D
Anyways, moving on. ;)
Oh man! I have a long list!
1) Our Ministry of Education. But, I mean, seriously, okay, they are hmm... good and all but they make us study these crazy things in school (that may or may not have any relation to our future career). Or is it just me and or is it my exam stress talking? :p But grr... I have tons of subjects to study for (in-depth too) and I have long school hours because of that, like from 7 am to 4pm O_O and even til 5-6pm if there is remedial on that day. And for what? To prepare us for a paper?
2) National Service. Well, it's a compulsory two and a half years of either the Army, Navy, Police or Civil Defence once you reach 18 years old. Since, some of you may know, Singapore is a pathetic dot on the map, so almost any country can just attack us almost anytime. So, to defend ourselves, the country recruits all healthy Singaporeans above the age of 18 with fully-functional of course to serve the nation. And there goes 2 1/2 years of my life. Oh ho ho, it doesn't end there! No sir! After you've served your national, you'll still have to comeback every year for a few days or a few weeks to for 'reservist' training to update and re-train you with the latest stuff in the army.
And yes, they are even considering of allowing GIRLS to enter and serve National Service, when it was originally a men-only ordeal.
3) Okay, maybe this sounds lovely to some people but I don't really like the heat cause it's like 29 degrees celcius here almost all the time! Thank God for the rain though.
4) Taxes, taxes and more taxes! Recently, they've increased the GST (Goods and Service Tax) from 5% to 7%. Yeah, everything is getting more expensive. :( Well that's because they would like to close the "income gap" between those who are in the lower-income class (those who receive around SG$1,000[US$700, around there] or lower as a monthly salary) and higher-income class (SG$5,000-SG$10,000[US$3,000-US$7,000] or higher as a monthly salary). And bah I'm in the middle-class income.
And another point of our taxes is that it contributes to our financial compulsory schemes that the government implemented. At the moment, I only have an EduSave account for students! So, the government pumps money into this account and then we can use the money up anytime for school purposes. Then once we leave for work, all the money from our EduSave account gets transferred into a CPF (Central Provident Fund) account, where you can use the money in that account and pay for housing or property over a period of time instead of one shot. Since, bleehh, housing here is woooo expensive.
Two more parts of the scheme is the MediSave account where they deduct a small percentage of your monthly salary and place it in your MediSave account in-case you ever fall sick and require funds to pay for your hospital bills. It think this is OKAY for those who are unable to manage their own finance, but they shouldn't make it compulsory to those who are able to knows how to control where all their money goes, since you CANNOT touch that money until you retire (and you've only got like what? A few years to enjoy that money, since the retiring age here is 62 years and may increase to 65 soon. LOL. How long can you live? Really? To enjoy that money?)
So, that's a bit frustrating.
Other that my long list of complaints, Singapore is practically a haven for shoppers and tourists galore. Hehe... and not to brag, I've just heard that our Tampines Estate have been awarded the Best Habitat of the World award from some organisation... I can't remember what's it called anyways.
So, ever plan to come to Singapore. Drop me a line! You've got to visit me! :D
EDIT: As usual, after writing a long text I forgot to write my question. :p
And your motherland?
Isabella_Rose Thursday 22nd of March 2007 12:07:30 AM Oh dear.... I have so many problems with the way things go, I won't even attempt to put them all down. :p

jvz8a Friday 30th of March 2007 09:49:55 AM If you have cable, you can get CNN, maybe the BBC... and... mmm... a news show from Portugal. On open TV, you have 30 of a new show from France (with subtitles). And that's all. All the rest is the crappiest Spanish you can get (not to mention the quality of the show).

mattie Wednesday 04th of April 2007 11:04:43 AM No I don't have an iPod, I've got a bunch of cds.
Do you think the price of new-release CDs are too expensive?
nena77 Thursday 05th of April 2007 02:53:50 AM Of course, considering how cheap blanc CDs are... But then, there are a lot of people that need to be paid, like, the maganer, the song-writer, the musician, the singer. So I prefer to download the songs from the web.

Well, I don't know... what are you doing infront of a computer which is not yours, at 5:30, hungry and without being able to sleep? Go get something to eat and then tell us. :D
Will Javier give us an answer? :) :)
jvz8a Friday 06th of April 2007 10:02:24 PM Nah! Nothing interesting to say.

Ania Sunday 08th of April 2007 03:29:47 AM No, almost never. I have a very good memory.
TPBM likes fey things.
Danial Sunday 08th of April 2007 09:04:01 PM Fey things? lol, not sure really.
Have you ever been kicked out of a black limousine belonging to the deadly Chinese Triad group, stripped butt-naked with nothing but a metal rubbish lid or an old newspaper to cover your "merchandise" as you streak around the streets of Hong Kong in broad daylight, receiving one of your greatest humiliation of your life, finding the nearest police station?
Heh, was just watching Rush Hour 2. :p :D
sanibel Sunday 08th of April 2007 11:15:59 PM Originally posted by jvz8a

Yes, I do and no, I'm nor telling. :p
@Danial: Wow! Some dream, eh? To answer your question, no, I had neither a metal rubbish lid or an old newspaper to cover my "merchandise" when I got kicked out of the limousine... Was that you that I saw??! If only I had known!!! :D:p:D
What are fey things, anyway? Just kidding. :)
Have you ever been streaking?
Isabella_Rose Monday 09th of April 2007 01:17:50 AM Nope, I have never done that....
Lol, Danial, it has been a long time since I saw that movie, but I remember that scene. Those poor guys. :p
Have you ever been to a concert and started to sing, only to find that you are singing during the instrumental break when everyone else is being quiet? ;)
FaWzY Monday 09th of April 2007 03:14:22 AM No, because if this ever happened to me, I wouldn't be able to post here, I'd have killed myself already... :p
Are you camera shy?!
jvz8a Monday 09th of April 2007 03:30:59 AM I think so.
When was the last time you drank a coke?
FaWzY Monday 09th of April 2007 03:34:50 AM That was Friday!

jvz8a Monday 09th of April 2007 07:10:11 PM mmm... not here! :p

Danial Monday 09th of April 2007 07:31:42 PM Erm.. I'll leave this to Nat to answer :p as I don't want to erm.. you know... :p you know :p ... yeah.. you know..
Natalie, why is Javier so in love with you? :p :D
jvz8a Tuesday 10th of April 2007 12:26:09 AM That is so easy to answer!
Because she is a GREAT person, intelligent, cute, pretty, opinionated (:p) and... in one word... Natalie-ish!!
How many pair of shoes do you have?
Ania Tuesday 10th of April 2007 12:35:07 AM 11, I guess. But I'm gonna buy a few pairs to my collection this summer. :D I love shoes as well as Nat does.
Have you got a good memory?
Psyche Tuesday 10th of April 2007 12:37:23 AM What is so funny about me being opinionated!!!! *grrrrr* :p
And Danial, why couldn`t you answer? What is it "you know"?! Eh? Are you like SCARED of me? :p
I DEMAND ANSWERS! :p
Shoes! I love shoes!! Especiall sandals! :p
I wonder how many times I have said that during my time here at PB (A) :p
I don`t have many pairs, actually. Only 10-12 :(
Do you also love shoes? What do you think about pretty sandals? Do you want to buy me some?
Psyche Tuesday 10th of April 2007 12:39:40 AM Double-post! *grrrrrrrrrrrrrr* :p
NO, my memory SUCKS BIG TIME :p I never remember anything...except if someone has wronged me and other burny stuffies :p
Do you look like a celebrity?
jvz8a Tuesday 10th of April 2007 01:13:46 AM *taking notes*
I can't say I love shoes. I like wearing them though :p
To your question... no, I don't. You look like one though. Like Natalie... mmm.. what's her surname? S... :p :p
You look like yourself.. and that's great!
What are you wearing?
Isabella_Rose Tuesday 10th of April 2007 03:23:36 AM Bleached blue jeans, a white sleeveless shirt and no socks. (I don't think I'll go any farther than that.) :p
Has anyone ever given you roses?
Psyche Tuesday 10th of April 2007 03:30:33 AM Yes :p
It has happened only a few times though. The last time was a few weeks back...that was so adorable! :)
Are you a romantic person?
Anonymous Tuesday 10th of April 2007 03:36:45 AM Not really, I leave that to the Norwegians...
Do you eat garlic?
Psyche Tuesday 10th of April 2007 04:06:46 AM Nope! It smells a lot....once I ate it...I smelled for DAYS! :p
Do you love the smell of grass? :)
FaWzY Tuesday 10th of April 2007 06:49:28 AM I sure do, the smell of a freshly cut grass is great in the morning.
jvz8a Tuesday 10th of April 2007 08:21:22 AM Almost as artistic as a rock!
Do you think the universe has a limit?
nena77 Wednesday 11th of April 2007 01:30:57 AM Well, if there was a limit, then what is outside this limit?
Do you believe in love at first sight?
mattie Wednesday 11th of April 2007 03:46:35 AM I think everybody wants to believe in love at first sight like you see in Fairytales but the honest truth is that love takes work. Like if you're sitting in a café or something and happen to look across the room and catch the eyes of someone, there could be some "chemistry" there, you might make a connection, but it's not love, is it? That connection isn't going to turn into love until you've talked, you've gotten to know each other, when you can accept the positive and negative attributes you both have.... so I guess I don't believe in love at first sight. That doesn't mean I don't believe in love at all. I just think it takes time....
What do you think? Do you believe in love at first sight?
nena77 Thursday 12th of April 2007 03:40:34 AM No, I do not. Not what I call "love".
I agree with you, love takes time to grow and you cannot know what the other person is like, or whether he/she speaks to your heart just by looking at him. I do believe in the chemistry thing, as you said, and that it is the first step for a possible love, but to love is to know the other person, good stuff and bad stuff, and love him/her despite all the bad stuff you might find.
Is Easter in your country a bigger celebration than Christmas? [in Greece it is]
jvz8a Thursday 12th of April 2007 12:39:06 PM No. It is a nice vacation period. And maybe only on Friday things are related to religion. More than that.. it is mainly vacation. And christmas vacations are way more important (more people travel, etc.).

FaWzY Thursday 12th of April 2007 02:26:25 PM I'm an O, I give all. :D

Nej, det har jeg ikke. Australien er ganske heldig med jordskælver, for ligger det lige i midtet af en 'fastlandsplade'.
-No, I haven't. Australia is quite lucky in regards to earthquakes, as it lies rights in the middle of a continental plate.
Hvilke er de største farer, der bor du?

Can you suggest some Japanese music? ;)
FaWzY Monday 16th of April 2007 05:39:11 AM No, I was asking to get some suggestions myself. :D
Do you hide yourself behind a mask?!
Isabella_Rose Monday 16th of April 2007 05:47:05 AM Not usually. ;)I'm a pretty open person.
I'll have to ask Nick about the music, maybe he can suggest something to you
Have you ever had a big stuffed animal that you slept with? :p

benny Wednesday 18th of April 2007 06:01:37 PM nope. want to though. in Taman Laut Bunaken near Ambon, Indonesia

Almadorcia Wednesday 18th of April 2007 06:41:26 PM Such things are too much horrible every time they happen but it didn't shock me cuz such things happend alreday before. But ppl and government learned nothing from it so it may unfortunately happen again. Of course i wish won't happen.
What government should do after such horrible happening?
Isabella_Rose Wednesday 18th of April 2007 10:42:42 PM Well, usually our government doesn't do much about the problem, if it gets enough publicity on the news our President will talk about it or something, but no solution is really accomplished. And that's sad...
What are you wearing today? :)
Almadorcia Thursday 19th of April 2007 12:24:58 AM red blouse and orange shoes:D
Are you going to have an exam soon?
FaWzY Thursday 19th of April 2007 03:00:43 PM Hopefully not until the end of May...
Do you wear glasses?
Almadorcia Thursday 19th of April 2007 04:24:07 PM Unfortunately yes, but fortunately I don't have to wear them all the time.
Do u prefer to use contact lenses instead of glasses?
FaWzY Thursday 19th of April 2007 04:28:55 PM Sometime, but I still find glasses more practical.
Do you have a homepage?!
Almadorcia Thursday 19th of April 2007 04:36:59 PM Yes, two, they are on my profile:)

(by the way how is correct "listen" or 'listened"?)
FaWzY Thursday 19th of April 2007 09:50:54 PM No, I haven't, yet.
Since you used "have", then you used the "Present Perfect", so you should use the "Past Participle" which is "Listened", so you're right. :)
Do you still remember anything that you've studied at school?!
Almadorcia Thursday 19th of April 2007 11:15:47 PM Thx FaWzy:) I know that in Present Perfect is third form but sometimes third form is the same as first or second so i doubted how was in this case.
Sure I remeber (but for sure not mathematic:p)

kate636363 Sunday 09th of September 2007 06:12:08 PM Not as much as I used to :)

FaWzY Sunday 09th of September 2007 10:20:54 PM I don't think I have just one, but I have a list! :p

Do you watch independent films?
Almadorcia Monday 10th of September 2007 04:16:55 PM Yes, but not very often.
Do you cry when you read a sad book or watch a sad movie?
kate636363 Monday 10th of September 2007 06:23:58 PM sometimes but not really :)

Do you get angry?
FaWzY Tuesday 11th of September 2007 04:46:39 AM At what?!
Well, I usually get angry when I'm in a bad mood...
@Kate: I bet it was a French pod, since French are usually hilarious when they try to speak English (No offense guys! :D)
Would you like to be a lawyer?
kate636363 Tuesday 11th of September 2007 04:57:11 AM @ Fawzy: haha yeah they are! but I just loved the American accent together with the... John has lost his keys...hahaha :D (no offense either ;))

What was the most beautiful sight you've ever seen?
Janis1 Wednesday 12th of September 2007 04:38:45 PM The Alhambra in Granada (south of Spain)
What do you think about downloading music (legally) ;)
Me ? I prefer buying albums.
Joe Thursday 25th of October 2007 08:56:12 PM I don't think too much of it - cause to be honest, I haven't done it.
nena77 Thursday 24th of January 2008 09:22:30 PM I do not own a car [yet...]. My husband owns a Peugeot 106

What is your favourite ocean creature?
Joe Saturday 26th of January 2008 11:36:17 PM Having an interest in marine biology (I missed my calling in it :( ), I've always been quite fond of sharks. Unjustly villified and maligned, they are unbelievably diverse, and actually quite beautiful and efficient creatures.
What is your favorite type of juice?
Javier Sunday 27th of January 2008 12:48:02 AM I am going for the most common: orange!
What song are you listening to now? (or what was the last song you listened to?)
mayor Sunday 27th of January 2008 06:45:43 AM Yes joe i agree sharks are fantastic an so important.
Drops of Jupiter.. GREAT SONG:)

squeak Sunday 27th of January 2008 09:44:59 PM I'm not sure, either:
Kestrel - they're so elegant and beautiful
House sparrow - they're just soooooooooooooooo cute!!!
What is your favourite plant?
Joe Monday 28th of January 2008 07:16:58 AM Gee, not sure I have a favorite plant. Roses remind me of my Grandmother... so I'll say roses.
What size shoe do you wear?
Janis1 Monday 28th of January 2008 08:09:47 PM I wear 39 size shoe (French size)
Have you ever loose a pet ?
Javier Tuesday 29th of January 2008 01:33:40 AM I have NEVER had a pet!
mattie Friday 01st of February 2008 08:20:59 AM No I've never been skiing. It's not something that we can do where I live because there is never any snow, even in winter.
What is something that a tourist should not miss when he or she visits the area in which you live?

I live in Brittany (north west of France).
Do you like cooking ?
mayor Sunday 03rd of February 2008 03:52:34 AM Phone.
What time did you go to sleep lastnight?
FaWzY Monday 04th of February 2008 03:05:50 PM 9 am
I'm that wild ;)
Too bad I don't get much bandwidth these days, internet has been facing some malfunctions lately, but I hope they'd fix it soon, I have tons of stuff to do online!
Do you like staying up late at night?
mayor Tuesday 05th of February 2008 04:10:11 AM Yes
"I've finish my bachelor, and I'm looking for a job as a translator anywhere... But I can't find so I'll go back home and live with my parent's money" :p
Have you ever read Bible or Quran?
FaWzY Saturday 09th of February 2008 06:53:07 AM Yes, both! :)
What's your most important possession?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Sunday 10th of February 2008 01:30:37 AM Ummm... I guess my computer. Without it I wouldn't have new music everyday, I wouldn't be able to contact people, and I wouldn't have all of the tv and books that's on it. So basically I would be bored out of my mind. But then my tv, iPod, and books would make up for it.
What is your least favorite food that you'd never eat in a million years?
No, I don't think so. They say it's in Ararat (in Turkish territory).
What's your opinion about Spaniards?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Sunday 10th of February 2008 09:25:38 PM That they're awesome! Every Spanish person in the United States is from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Cuba... but none are from Spain. All of the Spanish people in my Spanish classes make fun of Spain but in truth I would go to Spain but I would never go to their countries. (Well maybe Puerto Rico).
That they're awesome! Every Spanish person in the United States is from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Cuba... but none are from Spain. All of the Spanish people in my Spanish classes make fun of Spain but in truth I would go to Spain but I would never go to their countries.
People from a country where they speak Spanish other than Spain aren't Spanish ;) They are Mexicans, Cubans or Puerto Ricans... but Spaniards are from Spain :p
I think they are choivists, I mean most of them will "die for America" and they are doing terrible things around the world. But culturally, I like them. And I would love to travel to USA.
What's your opinion about abort?
FaWzY Monday 11th of February 2008 01:19:51 AM You mean Abortion?!
If so, I think it should fall under certain conditions and restrictions, it should only be allowed if there was a health risk on the mother, or that the child would be highly deformed, stuff like that, not just because you didn't plan it, or you're not ready yet, these aren't good reasons...
Dominick_Korshanyenko Monday 11th of February 2008 09:58:21 AM You misunderstand Avaldi every hispanohablante in the United States we call Spanish, even though they aren't Spaniards. Die for America!? I think that opinion's a little strange. There's a reason why our 300 million people aren't jumping to be in the army... If you ask me the United States shoule permanantly go into a state of isolationism like when it began in 1776. :p
I visited them today for maybe three hours but usually once or twice a month.
What is your favorite language other than you're native language?
FaWzY Monday 11th of February 2008 10:48:36 AM Japanese... Period! :D
What do you do when you can't sleep and you have to wake up early the next morning?
mayor Monday 11th of February 2008 04:25:05 PM Try an relax in bed focus on breathing and maybe listen to a meditation cd.
I think I'm very jealous, for example, I can't tolerate my friends to speak to people I don't like :p
Which characteristic do you consider to be your best?
FaWzY Tuesday 12th of February 2008 05:18:50 AM That's so hard for me to say!
I'd say my best quality is that I'm open-minded
Are you interested in serial killers? :D
Dominick_Korshanyenko Tuesday 12th of February 2008 07:17:54 AM Avaldi you should see it as a compliment, be glad that ignorant Americans don't call Spaniards Mexican... I think the only reason we call these people Spanish is because:
1. They speak it.
2. They ancestors originally came from spain.
3. It's just an expression. :p
No, I'm not. I'm siting quietful in a chair eating some chocolate and answering some posts in PB :p
What are you doing right now?
FaWzY Thursday 14th of February 2008 03:12:17 AM Changing my clothes, I've come back!
Would you consider dying your hair? If yes, in which color?
Avaldi Thursday 14th of February 2008 04:15:24 AM No, never. I like my dark hair :)
What is your favourite food?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Thursday 14th of February 2008 06:22:00 AM :ha Avaldi keeps saying favourite it makes me laugh every time I see it because it's improper where I live. But then again favorite is improper in England. (But easier to spell). :)
I don't know probably Lechon Kawali with carioca, pizza, or Key Lime Pie. UUUUUHHHHH, I'd do anything for Key Lime Pie.
What is your favorite play?
FaWzY Thursday 14th of February 2008 04:59:35 PM Hmm... I can't pick just one, it's like looking for a needle in a hay stack!
But I'd say Shakespeare's "As You Like It".
What is the most interesting topic you could think of right now?
For being intelligent and do not get in to any kind of pressure :)
Why do people say you have to be "perfect" (thin, white, heterosexual and rich)?
FaWzY Saturday 16th of February 2008 11:31:26 PM Because these are certain qualities that are idealized by the public, and hence they believe they should be a standard for anyone to be considered good...
Take South Korean as an example... Beauty is a madness over there, if you were not beautiful, thin, stylish,... you would be rejected by society, and you wouldn't get a decent job, if 2 people applied for the same position, one is beautiful, and the other is not really that beautiful physically, but is really much better qualified, with better courses and training,.. yet they'd actually take the beautiful one...
Why do people pretend to be your friends, and then when you least expect it, they stab you in the back?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Sunday 17th of February 2008 08:35:19 PM Well a good friend would stab you in the front so I'm going to say that they were you're enemy all along and they we're trying to get close enough to stab you. :D
FaWzY Sunday 17th of February 2008 10:14:26 PM @Kenny: It not that hard, it tests the very basic knowledge of Japanese, basic most commonly used Kanjis, basic conversations,...
I don't know, but it should be a south Asian language, like Malay, Indonesian,... They have simple phonetics, VERY easy grammar, words that could stick easily to your brain...
(I've hears the word "Ayam" only once 3 years ago, and it's still stuck in my mind, it's Malay/Indonesian for Chicken)
Do you think exams can really evaluate a person's knowledge?
FaWzY Sunday 17th of February 2008 10:46:47 PM Oh god no... :S
Do you plan to kill someone?
Janis1 Sunday 17th of February 2008 11:00:23 PM YES ! My husband! :D lol (when he sings for example)
What's your best mark in math ?
Danial Sunday 17th of February 2008 11:03:22 PM Uff... ayam :p lol, weird, well, I heard the Bruneians like "ayam goreng" (fried chicken, yeah... adjectives go at the back ALWAYS) a lot LOL cause my teacher was there for some army training and they ate ayam goreng like EVERY single day there for the whole month and when he came back to Singapore he almost wanted to puke at the sight of it LOL
Erm... in primary school 99, almost perfect :p LOL that's primary four or 4th grade in the American system.
Are you learning an Asian language?
FaWzY Sunday 17th of February 2008 11:09:25 PM Hehe, poor that guy! :D
Yes, I am, in fact I'm learning 4 Asian languages (Japanese, Korean, Chinese & Turkish), and I speak one (Arabic :p)
Can you speak an Altaic language?
Danial Sunday 17th of February 2008 11:25:00 PM Not at all! Sorry!
Have you heard of Russell Peters? (my favourite comedian!! <3)
FaWzY Sunday 17th of February 2008 11:32:55 PM Nope, sorry!
Do you blog?
Danial Sunday 17th of February 2008 11:49:59 PM LOL Fawzy... you're seriously missing out! :D Okay, so he's an Indian, but lives in Canada. And he makes fun of his own race, but it's not offensive at all. Anyways, here's a clip where he compared Indians and Chinese together :D and that he was in a mall dealing with a Chinese guy. I laughed my ass off when I first saw this.
I used to, but got bored since I don't really have much to write about.
Did you like the clip? :D
FaWzY Monday 18th of February 2008 12:02:05 AM LOL!
I would love to visit the Roman time. I love Roman Empire.
Do you have a microphone?
FaWzY Monday 18th of February 2008 10:23:15 PM Yes I do, but I rarely use it!
Are you stressed?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Monday 18th of February 2008 10:33:26 PM Extremely only today though. I have to work, get my school work done, my mom insists that I get my protrait taken today, and I promised Lina I'd finish the lesson on Romanian Verbs today. All this on a holiday... :p
Do you hate having to work on holidays?
FaWzY Monday 18th of February 2008 11:07:10 PM Of course, who would love to? I don't wanna meet the man that'd love to work on holidays! :D
Are you easy to trick?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Monday 18th of February 2008 11:53:04 PM Sometimes yes and sometimes no depending on what the trick is. ;)
Dominick_Korshanyenko Tuesday 19th of February 2008 01:06:43 AM I don't know I thought the Balkans had enough problems without this. If they truly want independance and feel that they can support themselves without help from other countries then I support it.
If a hoboe asked you for money on the street would you give it to him?
FaWzY Tuesday 19th of February 2008 06:05:44 PM It depends, I leave it to my personal judgment.
Have you ever tried one of those "Learn (some language) in 10 Days"?
Avaldi Tuesday 19th of February 2008 09:47:34 PM But why are you sad, Avaldi?
Dunno, just I woke up sad... But I'm happy today :)
Yes, and those courses are a shit :p
Do you like phrasebooks?
FaWzY Tuesday 19th of February 2008 10:31:48 PM I know, that happens to me sometimes, but unfortunately people can't understand it!
Btw, you don't say something is "a shit", you just say it's "shit" directly...
I should, but it's not completed for any of my target languages, and I'm the one doing the Arabic one (toooooo much work), so I HATE it :p
Do you sometimes feel like you don't understand yourself?
Danial Wednesday 20th of February 2008 12:05:39 AM Haha... those down days :S uff...
Good luck Fawzy :p I was an admin once before... it's damn demanding.
Well, yeah... sometimes. But if you don't understand yourself, no one else will, so I just keep searching.
What do you really want to do in life?
Avaldi Wednesday 20th of February 2008 01:13:13 AM
Good question, Danial: I want to be with my family and friends and I don't want to have so much problems. Life is cool if you know how to spend it :)
Do you think weather influences in health and character?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Wednesday 20th of February 2008 09:35:17 AM Of course! I would be a much different person if I lived in Norway than in Florida where I live. Weather affects people a lot. If only it snowed here I've never seen it. :(
Do you like snow?
FaWzY Wednesday 20th of February 2008 02:23:38 PM I've never seen it, so how would I know if I were to like it or not!
Have you ever been to an oasis?
Avaldi Wednesday 20th of February 2008 09:55:27 PM Yes, in Morocco. I love oasis!
Have you ever been to the desert?
FaWzY Wednesday 20th of February 2008 10:17:03 PM Not really, I've only been to the desert around the Pyramids in Giza, but it doesn't really count, it's small, it's surrounded by the city and it's full of people...
Do you believe that some people have superhuman powers?
Do you know the rate of unemployment in your country ?
FaWzY Friday 29th of February 2008 04:09:28 AM I'd rather not... it's pretty high and I'm still in college, knowing it would just make me lose hope!
What do you read in a newspaper?
Janis1 Friday 29th of February 2008 04:30:30 AM Everything (International, national and local news) except sports.
What do you really want to have in 5 years ?
FaWzY Friday 29th of February 2008 04:42:15 AM To be on my road to lead a luxurious life, probably in Canada...
It'd be nice to have a nice apartment, own a good 2013 model car, a decent career, money in the bank, a solid relationship and some close friends...
What kinds of plans and dreams did you have when you were younger, that were later never fulfilled or cruelly shattered by reality?
Probably the same as mine now, they never changed much as I grew up. Basically I want to go to the University of Florida to become a doctor, become fluent in three languages, and travel the world. So far none of my dreams have had the chance to fail. :p
What do you find appealing about Canada?
FaWzY Friday 29th of February 2008 05:55:55 AM Canada has a higher standard of life, better health insurance, its people more tolerant, much lower crime rate,...
Actually, for the Arabs, Canada and Australia are the top countries to immigrate to, then followed by the US!
Why do Americans make fun of Canada all the time? :p
Avaldi Saturday 01st of March 2008 02:40:51 AM Because they know Canadians are more tolerant and they have much lower crime rate... :p
What do you prefer: Spain or Canada? :)
FaWzY Saturday 01st of March 2008 03:10:57 AM Canada, because I can already speak English and French, while I can't speak Spanish, plus, I have 2 cousins over there
Do you go on dangerous rides at the park?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Saturday 01st of March 2008 03:14:36 AM :ha wow Avaldi... Actually they have a reputation for being cowards and well... strange. ;) They may have a better health insurance system and be a little more tolerant. Granted these are just sterotypes but it stays in the minds of Americans.
I prefer Spain of course they're millions times better. :)
Would you rather live in the 60's or the 70's?
mayor Saturday 01st of March 2008 04:28:53 AM The 60,s Man..
Do you know where Ayers rock is?
Avaldi Saturday 01st of March 2008 08:19:30 PM Kenny, of course we are! Go Spain! :):)
Yes, in Australia's Desert. A cool place!
Do you know where La Alhambra is?
mayor Sunday 02nd of March 2008 05:24:11 AM Yes near granada (thanks web) what a bella building.
Do you like the country or city to live in?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Sunday 02nd of March 2008 09:02:25 AM City most of the time but I'd like a home in the country for some peace and quiet now and then.
Do you like flip flops or shoes better?
FaWzY Sunday 02nd of March 2008 12:00:06 PM Flip flops are nice in the summer, but they get sand and dust in my feet, so I usually stick to shoes.
Have you ever had any Arabic food?
Avaldi Sunday 02nd of March 2008 07:30:56 PM Yes, of course! In Morocco I tried cous-cous, tajine... and a hundred more but I don't remember their names! I should look my travel's note-book! :p
Have you ever been to Morocco?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Sunday 02nd of March 2008 10:32:24 PM No! I haven't even been out of my country my whole life.
:( But I'm going to go to Spain for one year of my college. The University of Florida has a branch there. It will be my first country I've visited. :)
What was the first foreign country you've ever been to?
Avaldi Monday 03rd of March 2008 02:54:36 AM Portugal, when I was 8 years old. It's not especially another country... They aren't so different to Spaniards, just they speak Portuguese! :)
What do you prefer: Portuguese or Spanish?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Monday 03rd of March 2008 08:54:13 AM Spanish. Portuguese is esentially the same but I don't like how its written and how nasally it is. :p
Which do you prefer: Chinese or Japanese?
mayor Monday 03rd of March 2008 05:19:03 PM Chinese food yum cha..
Have you herd of a place called the black stump?
Avaldi Saturday 08th of March 2008 10:00:45 PM No, never.
Have you ever heard of Toledo (a city)?
mayor Sunday 09th of March 2008 07:00:06 AM Toledo,Ohio named after Toledo, SPAIN.
Would you do that running with the bulls thing?
Avaldi Sunday 16th of March 2008 07:41:06 PM I meant the Spanish city :)
haha... Of course not! I'm not crazy, and I love to watch bullfights :)
Would you watch a bullfight in Spain?
FaWzY Monday 17th of March 2008 06:54:46 AM Not sure, but I'd love to participate in those tomato fights! :D

Avaldi Friday 09th of May 2008 09:24:00 PM Let me think... A guy in my class put a paper in the mouth in the History class. We all laughed and then... the teacher said us to leave the class. It was funny anyway! =P

No, because I'm still in high school!
If you could have a personal teacher for any language what would it be?
mattie Monday 14th of July 2008 11:54:16 AM I suppose if I could have my own personal teacher for any language in the world, it would have to be French! I wouldn't like to see him/her as a teacher though. In fact, I wouldn't want an educated person with whom I'm to sit down and be expected to learn off a blackboard or boring oral lessons. What I'd like is a French friend who I can just have a good time with while picking up French at the same time while we're wondering around chatting and doing interesting, fun things. That way my French would sound really fluent and natural, rather than bookish and learned.
Have you ever had a full conversation with a random person on the street in your target language?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Friday 18th of July 2008 09:22:21 AM Goodness no but that would be awesome! But once I helped a Spanish family by translating some directions a person was giving but it was only simple stuff like: Luego dobla a la izquierda... Basically boring stuff.
Have you ever been scuba diving?
mayor Sunday 20th of July 2008 06:13:19 PM Yes D_k, i have it,s a feeling of such freedom:)
Do you know how many tonnes of plastic are in the oceans?
Dominick_Korshanyenko Friday 25th of July 2008 01:36:09 AM I don't know but these days there's plastic everywhere. I'll guess 500 tons.
What's your favorite type of water: fresh, salt, chlorine?
