I've just been tagged/cursed by
so now I'm morally obliged to play along with his silly game and reveal no less than a whopping 8 random facts about myself.
First off, the rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. Each tagged person must post 8 things about theirself on their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag some people and post their icons on the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.
5. No tag-backs...
And here goes:
My mental age probably still is around 5 years old or so, as I'm quite the curious person (, as in someone that questions everything and answers questions with more questions) ... and I drink my milk straight from the carton! (, but moms only find it cute if you burp when you're actually 5 years old...) Also, I'd probably get sparkles in my eyes if you happened to come up with the random idea of giving me Lego for my birthday or something. (No Duplo though! That'd be an insult to my 5-year-old intelligence
I refuse to train myself in reading analogue clocks. I did try hard to master them bloody analogue clocks back when I was 7 or so, but the difference is that now I realize that analogue clocks only add redundant complexity compared to digital ones... All you do when reading an analogue clock is converting the picture you see back to meaningful numbers; i.e. a digital clock. Therefore, it's about time Big Ben got an upgrade.
I'm the odd person that prefers winters over summers. I just find snowy landscapes prettier than crowded beaches I guess.
Also, I hate it when it's too hot to be able to think. (Ask science; heat makes you lazier
... which is why it makes sense to say the people in Spain are lazier than the ones in Germany ... unless they had airco ... *ehm, going off-topic*)
If I had a role model... it'd probably be Duke Nukem
All the wise things that man says... "Come get some", "Hail to the king baby", "Eat shit and die", "Let God sort'em out", ... If it wasn't for the Duke, who knows, I might've been a mere sissified being.
(Just check out this Duke Nukem Forever teaser trailer in glorious HD www.gametrailers.com/player/29…
If that ain't testosterone-filled sheer macho-/manli-/awesome-ness, I don't know what is.)
My native tongue is Dutch and yet my thinking language is English. For some reason, everything sounds cooler in English. (and everything sounds smarter in British English, but you can speak a lot faster without tripping over words in American English so...
) Oh, and it's also ridiculous how funny some stuff sounds when you translate English movie/book/... titles back to Dutch.
If you haven't noticed yet, I'm quite the geek, as I study Computer Science and listen to more video game music than the regular kind. (A while ago, I've written a journal on why you may want to consider video games music; check it out at nfernov2.deviantart.com/journa…
) On the other hand, you may just be geekier than me as I've never seen a single Star Wars/Trek movie, or a Lord of the Hamburger Kings movie (or something like that), nor have I ever read Harry Potter books. (Let alone A book, heh...) Then again, I got into watching anime the last couple of years and now I even know that otaku is the Japanese word for an anime/manga geek. Oh well, everyone's a geek in their own fields of interest. It'd just be sad really if you had no interests at all.
I always wear T-shirts; never sweaters or pullovers or whatevers. Don't care whether it's freezing or not, I'll wear a T-shirt. I feel comfy in those things, so there's no need to change my mind. Just praise yourself lucky it's not always the same shirt.
And finally, I hate these tagging/chainmail games! (for one, because my texts always end up way too long) Aw man, see how much time I've wasted with this nonsense, it's already 4 friggin' 30 AM...
As for tagging... I tag no one! The chain ends here, nah! I couldn't burden anyone with this waste of time. Well, if you really-really want to, consider yourself tagged then. (You'll regret it though...)
