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 questions are from xaviar_nl:
1. Which person, dead or alive, existing or non-existing, would you want to be for a day (and why...)?
Hmmm, tough one. I think I'd like to be Edison, or any other inventor: working away in your workshop, trying to make your visions a reality -- to make something that previously did not exist, that no-one imagined before you did.
2. What is your earliest memory since you were born that you can 'really' remember?
I was, I think, three. I slept in the small room, in a lofted bed that my dad had made for me himself. It was painted green. It's in the afternoon (in the mornings I go to the creche), and I'm just about finished with my afternoon nap. Through the closed door, I hear my mother talk with the people whose hair she did -- elderly ladies whose hair has to be re-curled every week.
I look to the window. The curtains are closed, and the sun shines on the window. My curtain depicts a country scene: hills and a few houses with roads running across the hills towards the houses.
3. When were you last _very_ angry and why?
I don't get angry easily. However, it doesn't take much to irritate me -- and when I'm irritated, I get cranky.
Last time I was irritated: Yesterday evening, I left the house to go shopping. At the same time, a man (who had probably been visiting one of my neighbours) left the flat as well. His son (about 8 years old) was waiting for him in front of our house.
A quick situation sketch: we live at a dead end. There are some parking spots, but it's the textbook definition of 'hardly any traffic'.
Anyway, the little guy had been walking on the 'street'. The man freaked out completely, saying: "Did you just walk on the street!? What if you had been run over by a car!?" The boy replied: "But there weren't any cars!" This was ignored by the man, who repeated his question. This was repeated some 4 times. Why does the man not learn his kid to think for himself? Why did that man not learn his kid to appraise situations for himself? How will a kid like that grow up to become a well-balanced adult?
When I was 6, I walked to school alone, and I had to cross two streets. None too busy, but at that age I knew how to get from A to B by myself safely! Man, fucking raise your kid!!
Anyway, it's not my kid so I did not think it was my place to comment on it -- but I was pretty ticked off.
4. Of what can you never get enough?
Hmr. Everything, no matter what, tends to get boring after a while. However, there are some things I can't get enough of. One of the most important ones is watching anime with klik.
5. What's you life's motto?
I don't have a life's motto, per se. But I do believe that you have to make conscious choices about what you do with your life -- and stick to that.
