I like all kinds of music, dependent on the mood I'm in: from Classic (Bach, Beethoven, Tschaikovsky),
Vocal Jazz (Standards - Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Holiday, Dinah Washington) and Pop Music (as long as it's not -what we call- 08/15) to Worldmusic (from Africa or Turkey). Few examples: Holly Cole - Carol King - Melissa Etheridge - Tracy Chapman - MPeople - Sting - Joe Cocker - Queen. And then there are a couple of german musicians I like, like Annett Louisan, for example
My absolute favourite is "The sacred diary of Adrian Plass" - I've read it several times and still giggle while reading. - "'The perfume" is also great. - Patricia Cornwell novels (Kay Scarpetta - but only in English - in german I understand everything, and thats pretty cruel g) - British women's novels (with that special sense of humour) - and Artbooks and Cookbooks (I love the picuteres, not the cooking!) - And what I also like very much, but don't know what genre that is, are inspiring books like SARK's, for example.
I like british films. My favorite ones are "Keeping mum" (I absolutely love that one!) "Kalender Girls" and "Pride and Prejudice" (BBC) - "Mamma Mia" is also a great movie (I was impressed by Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan singing) -
I like series, especially Crime (NCIS, The Closer, Bones, Criminal Minds) and the "Gilmore Girls" (love those!) - German and austrian films like "Soko Kitzbühl" - "Tatort" - "Rosenheim Cops" - "Adelheid und ihre Mörder" - Thrillers in general
I used to be a teacher, but went back to university a couple of years ago to study psychology, which is great. I work part-time in a supermarket, which is also ok. - I live on my own and I have to rabbits that I love. My friends and close family are very important to me, however I like living not too close to my parents home. - I love music, arts and craft, going to the cinema and playing badminton. I also like playing games (like card games, for example). I hate cooking. If I had a joice I would rather clean up afterwards that doing the actual cooking. However I like baking - maybe because that's genetic, as I grew up in a bakery. :-)
I can't really say I have favorite crafts. But I certainly like mixed media, messing around with colors, working with clay, stamping... I like trying new things. That's exciting: Always looking for new experiences... I love journaling and I'm getting into ATCs right now. I would enjoy mail-art, too, but haven't found a partner yet.
I always stick to my commitments, which means: I sign up. I send. And I rate. I usually send on the last day, and sending overseas via snail mail can take a looong time.
If you don't receive anything within reasonable time, please send me a note before rating to sort things out. I will do the same.
Thank you and happy swapping!
