zeven willekeurige weetjes over mezelf / seven random facts about me

Vanishingword van de blog www.deepdarkindeliblegreen.blogspot.com heeft me een stokje doorgegeven, in blog termen een meme, ik mag nu zeven willekeurige weetjes over mezelf prijsgeven. Aangezien ik geen spelbreker wil zijn, zal ik ze in twee talen meegeven, Nederlands en Engels.


1. Ik kan een pub vinden die Guinness schenkt in elke willekeurige grote stad, en daar zal ik ook een Guinness drinken. Uitzonderingen zijn landen waar Guinness niet levert. Deze bars, café's en pubs worden instinctief gevonden.

1. I can find a pub who serves Guinness in any mayor city, and I will drink a pint of Guinness there. Exceptions are countries where there is no Guinness. These bar's , café's and pubs are found instinctively.

2. Wanneer ik met de fiets door het verkeer slalom, verbeeld ik me soms dat ik een piloot van een X-wing ben, achtervolgd door TIE fighters.

2. When zooming through traffic on my bike, I will imagine being an X-wing fighter, chased by TIE fighters.

3. Ik beoordeel mensen op de trein naar wat ze lezen. Ik weet dat niet correct is.

3. I judge people on the train to work on what they're reading. I know it is wrong to do so.

4. Ik tik enorm luid en hard. Ik hou van het geluid van zwaar aangeslagen toetsen.

4. I type extremely loud and hard. I love the sound of hammering a keyboard.

5. Wanneer ik dronken ben, kan je met mij niet discussiëren. Ik schaam me daar een beetje voor.

5. When I'm drunk, I'm immune for logic. I'm ashamed of that.

6. Wanneer ik zit te dromen, lijk ik enorm kwaad. Het is een familietrek

6. When I'm daydreaming, it seems like I'm really really mad. It's a family trait.

7. Ik hield van de muziek van Johnny Cash voor het weer in werd, maar durfde het niet toegeven.

7. I loved Johnny Cash's music before it became fashionable to do so. I was always ashamed of admitting it, back then.


Update:

Ik tag Occy en Zimbob

I'm wondering: do they serve Guinnes in Cuba and Turkey?

Zimbob said...

You forgot number 8: "i cannot quote Zappa properly, but try it regularly nevertheless"

Ha


Love ya anyway.

Alas, I didn't find any Guinness in Turkey, only Carlsberg. Could be they have Guinness in the posh hotels of Cuba, but when travelling, I try to live as the people of the country. I abhore holiday resorts, so I stayed with the locals.

No contest on number nine, Zimbob, no contest. :-)

lebbercherrie said...

euh, make that number eight! Number nine: I can't count.

vanishingword said...

Spectacular! You have only omitted "tagging" some of your friends! :)I laughed all the way down your list.

Zimbob said...

I distag myself but thank you for the proposal. I will let out one random thing about myself:

1. I'm a cartoonist, not an exhibitionist.

Mind you, I have enjoyed reading your and Vanishing's list.

vanishingword said...

I know the real reason for the refusal, there isn't enough time at work to post is there!?

Zimbob said...

I'm at home actually... Got the half day off.
But I am working indeed:
sketching, inking, photoshopping, refusing to write 7 things about myself...

lebbercherrie said...

Well, that was the reason I omitted tagging someone. I don't know anybody who either hasn't already done the seven things or is willing to. I knew Zimbob probably wasn't up for it, but I tried nevertheless.

Zimbob said...

Humbug,
said the old codger.

You know me well young padawan.

lebbercherrie said...

I know my shriveled up old grumpy Yodas, yes indeed. ;-)

Zimbob said...

Took a bath and looked at your shrimp again, have you?

lebbercherrie said...

My swami-Bam-Bam-shrimp, do you mean?

Occy said...

Oh, dang-diddly-darn, can you distag yourself?! I wish I'd have thought of that. But nooo, ... once again I just stept in, went with the flow and took the punches and pointy rocks ...

Is it too late to stil distag me. Oh, lord & lebber, is it?

lebbercherrie said...

Darn' tootin' it is too late! I had to do it, and so did you. Get over it, be a big boy.

vanishingword said...

Was it really that bad? Princess Haiku has a link to Occy's 7 things. I noticed that I couldn't get on his page....

Occy said...

Yes, working on that - it all has to do with my dumb internetprovider finally coming through with the .org-domain, of course now I don't really need it anymore, but I have it anyway, and I'm paying for it, and if I don't want it anymore I have to pay extra, and I'm already paying double so anyway what hey who said that? but the blog's still available, and sometime later today, tomorrow for you probably, everything will be in fine working order again, the .tk-domain as well as the .org-domain, and if it don't well you'll probably hear about it on the 9 o'clock news ...

Occy said...

see, notice the missing picture next to my comment - part of the swamp I've gotten myself into ...
