2 -- I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 -- You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 -- You'll include this explanation.
5 -- You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.
These are from zolphia:
1) Do you plan on living in Nijmegen for the rest of your live?
I'm not planning anything. Perhaps tomorrow we'll get a great offer to live and work somewhere else (Iceland!) and we'll pack up and leave.
It's just that we both have our jobs in Nijmegen, and it's a good city to live in: the atmosphere is better than, say, Amsterdam, and there's lots of nature just outside of the city limits.
2) What is the best thing about klik?
The way she can totally support my very geeky interests and projects. She understands why a binary LED clock is inherently cool, and allows me to invest time (and sometimes quite a bit of money) in the pursuit of geeky gadgetry.
Also, she can connect with people in a way I could never do. People tend to trust her and like to talk to her.
3) What is the worst thing about klik?
The way she can be completely destroyed with fatigue.
4) Why did it take so long for you two to get married?
It was never an issue, when we were both still students. You know how it goes: you're both students, busy with your studies and your friends...
Then we started to live together, and then klik graduated... Suddenly, we were both 'grown up', with jobs and a house. But even then, I didn't see the need to get married. It doesn't add anything, except a legal status that can also be acquired by a notarial contract.
It took klik some persuasion to make me see that you can also get married for internal reasons, not external ones. So in the end, we agreed to get married -- and I'm glad we did it.
5) When it comes to a job, what would you rather have: fun work or fun co-workers?
It's important to have colleagues that you can work with -- if not, then you won't get anything done, no matter how fun your work is. And in the end, your fun work will be decidedly un-fun because it won't amount to much.
With that provision, I'd rather have fun work.
