I have to be honest and say that I'm 99 years and 11 months old and I'm not so successful (very recently) at chatting up young ladies who are 80 years younger than me. I can still do a four minute mile in under 1 minute and can still drink 9 pints of strong beer in under half an hour. But I can no longer croak into my very good mics to read a best seller written in 1924 or even earlier. Sometimes after I've walked 15 miles I need to sit on the couch for ten minutes to recover, but then I'm off again for another 15 miles. (Unless my dog needs a rest ...)

* How old are you: 42
* Favorite color: red and green. i think, i'm slightly colorblind: blue and yellow are rather gray for me. but i do lke gray more than blue. yellow is a wonderful color for curtains,i thought. then i read, that that is a sign for schizoprenia...
* Pets: 4 cats and some spiders, which i "love" for eating mosquitoes
* Sunrise or Sunset: sunrises from my kitchen window. sometimes, we have them, because there are less mountains or they are far away. i used 2 pics of sunrises from my kitchen window in cover designs. sunsets i don't know. i assume, i have to go up the mountains to see them. and i'm not this kind of evening person.
* Ocean or Mountains: i love vacations at the sea, despite never doing that, but live in the mountains. the same feeling of endless beauty and wide horizons i saw, when living in a flat area. and i'm not a ship-person. so, there you go: neither. but i saw sunsets and sunrises there, which have beaten every single one i ever saw in the mountains.
* Favorite food: not sure. but i love spinach and omelettes, eg.
* Favorite pie: we eat several sort of cakes here, and rarely pies or these buttercreme cakes which are liked elsewhere. linzerkuchen or karotte-nuss kuchen.
* Steak or Seafood: veggies
* Italian or Chinese: you do mean food, i hope? i mean, not cannibalistic, eh?
* Chocolate or Vanilla: vanilla. in icecream berries, stracciatella, citron or malaga. but i should avoid eating milk-products..
* How many tattoos: 0 - but i have some funky scars
* Ever hit a deer: no. but i killed a toad in front of our office :-( i didn't even realize it and saw it the next day. it wasn't dead, instantly - i hate cars for being like that and feel ashamed and sad about it, to this day.
* Rode in an ambulance: yes, as a child. i remember it, even.
* Ice skated: well, once...
* Rode a motorcycle: with my dad, yes. i tried making the license and failed miserably. but i loved my moped and use a scooter.
* Stayed in the hospital: yes
* Favorite season: warm and rainy
* Broken Bones: no

i am too chatty for this, this is really breaking my privacy needs i think.
