I’ve been tagged by Cirnelle from Storm in a teacup!
I’m usually a pretty lazy blogger and tend to let tags slip my mind. So I thought I’d better stick to blogger etiquette and do this one straight away before my forgetfulness takes over.
5 things found in your bag
1. 2 T-Com ADSL/Phone Bills
Grrrr. We’ve been to T-Com twice to register our bank details so that they can direct debit our bills from our account but noooo, we keep receiving bills to telling us that we haven’t paid! We’ve given them authorisation to take money from our account! You’d think that they didn’t want our money!
2. Wet wipes
For all those germs on the Metro (you know, from people who don’t wash their hands after going to the toilet! You know who you are!). Urggghhh.
The weather is bloody unpredictable over here at the moment. Can someone please fix the weather?
I need money, cards and other bits of paper that I probably don’t need.
5. Water bottle
I’m not a camel and don’t have a hump to store water unfortunately.
5 favourite things in your room
When he’s not at work or in front of the TV of course. ;-)
2. Girlie fashion magazines
I can’t fall asleep if I don’t read in bed. Haruki Murakami’s La fin des temps is taking me forever to read.
4. My bedside lamp
I need light to be able to read in order to fall asleep!
5. The closet
I like having clothes to wear so that I don’t wander around nude (it’s not a pretty sight!) in the streets of Frankfurt!
5 things you've always wanted to do
Only 5??? I could list a whole lot more!
1. Live in the same city with my entire family (immediate and extended) and close friends
This will probably never happen as everyone is scattered across the globe!
2. Quit my IT career and move into something more fulfilling. I don’t hold any passion for the corporate life. Only problem…I’m too lazy. It’s just much easier to do something within my comfort zone!
3. Do more travelling in Africa
4. Time travel
No one said this meme had to be realistic. I’d love to visit the future to see my future great-great-great-great grand kids (or just whether there are any at all!), the technology (is it all flying cars as per the 5th Element) and yeah, whether the world exists at all or it just a burnt piece of crusty earth. Then I’d visit the past – I want to see Elvis alive…not just in the local 7-11!
5. Own the Murdochs & the Packers
I’d wipe the media clean of Paris Hilton. Enough already!
5 things you're currently into
1. Learning German.
The person who developed the rules for German had wwaaayyy too much time on his/her hands!
2. Speaking French
Don’t ask me why the husband and I speak French to each other. He’s perfectly capable of holding a serious conversation in English except that every time he opens his mouth in English, it’s to make a joke! We never have serious conversations in English.
3. Deciding if we’re going to move back to France, to the UK or to Australia
I’m not fond of making decisions!
Trying to communicate with the other students in my German class! Not everyone speaks English and we don’t know enough German to be able to have any decent discussions!
5. Cooking spicy food
I’m trying to toughen up the husband’s stomach for when we head to Malaysia later this year ;-)
5 people you want to tag
