Profile last updated on 12th June 2012.
Hello. A little bit about myself:
I am a librarian.
I try to live an organic life.
I cook and love spending time in the kitchen.
I love receiving postcards from far away places and dreaming that one day I will visit those places (and sometimes I actually do!).
I can stare at maps for hours.
Favest city on earth is NYC! My favest book growing up was The Hobbit. And The 35th of May.
When I travel somewhere far, I take a pebble or a small rock from that place and take it back home with me.
I also send myself postcards from abroad. Yes, I do.
I adore photography (I'm really into bw lately). I watch TONS of movies. I love listening to music (on vinyl!), listening to thunderstorms and rain outside while reading a book inside. Beans on toast. Cloud watching. Sea watching (I've always lived by the sea). I love the combination of sweet and salty. Milk chocolate. Traveling. Urban art. Old b/w movies. I don't like macarons. I know, that's just weird, but they feel weird on my teeth.
I adore custard. And mustard. Not together though.
I love nature, but enjoy living in the city.
Photography, some paper crafts (but not scrapbooking), sawing/stitching/embroidery (by hand, I don't have a machine), cooking and baking (which I consider to be a craft too).
I wish I knew how to make collages. And knit. .
And I love trying new things.
Wilfred, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Big Bang Theory, Boardwalk Empire, Bored to Death, Community, Fringe, IT Crowd, Mad Men, The Walking Dead, Modern Family, MASH, Oz, Parks and Recreation, The Office, Wallace and Gromit, ...
Apocalypse Now. Monty Python. Casablanca. Breakfast at Tiffany's. Cabinet of Dr Caligari. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Inglourious Basterds. Band of Brothers and The Pacific (mini series). Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus. Lord of the Rings. Stranger than Fiction. Tropic Thunder. Hitchcock's movies. Soderbergh's movies. Superhero movies (but I don't like Superman). Old black and white movies. Even silent movies.
And so so many more... I love DVDs :)
