Tag is me
Back then I was pronounced 50% weird. Now Karine wants to know if that's correct, I guess, because she tagged me with "6 weird things about me". I am pretty sure there are such things, but how the heck am I supposed to know what's really weird about me?
Weird, after all, means: (informal use) unusual and not sensible or acceptable. Maybe I should stick to the other meaning: strange, unnatural. Unnatural? Doesn't sound that much better to me.
1. I have the urge to collect things. Things in a row (magazines, books), things I think I need (dpns), things I like (yarn, books, coloring pencils, fountain pens). There is no intention of collecting when I acquire things, it just so happens.
2. I'm German and I don't drink beer. I don't think that's weird, but apparently there are a lot of people out there who seem to think so.
3. I can't watch any series in German when I have seen the original. I will annoy people with remarks like "oh, the dubbing is soo bad" or "he/she sounds just silly in German". Another favourite is: "man, their English pronounciation is really crappy!". (Of course they don't dub names, titles like "detective" or even "mister".)
4. I either finish knitting a sweater in record time or it'll take me forever - forever as in more than one, two years. (Sweaters for personal use. Work knitting is something totally different.)
5. When I was twelve I had hemiplegia in my face. Usually only stroke sufferers get that. Apparently I caught a virus. You have to have EST (electro shock therapy) to help the nerves function again. Of course they are only small localized shocks, slightly more painful than getting a very strong shock from static.
6. I like to be tagged, but I don't like to tag. Please forgive this spoilsport - or just do it anyways if you feel so inclined.
I've decided to show you something on each Saturday I find useful, delightful or maybe plain silly.
A thing I find delightful and useful at the same time is what I bought at the museum shop of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. It doesn't only look cool but serves to store certain tools certain people cannot live without.
As if it was made for them, no?
The New Blogger does neither like accents nor umlauts. I'll have to fix that.
