Under the sign of eleven

Beth from Word Nerd Speaks had a list of very interesting questions which I felt answering. Most likely since I am in a hotel in the middle of nowhere and no much entertainment available.

When did you start feeling like a grown-up?
When my mother allowed me to go shopping on my own for the first time, I think I was eight. Rather early right? It was sure only in my mind, but great feeling, still feel proud when I look back.

What celebrity made your heart go pitter-patter when you were a kid/tween/teen?

Does anyone know Jason Donovan? I did enjoy his music so much and I remember that once one classmate wanted a date and gave me a cassette with his music. I took it but no date :)

What song do you and your sweetie think of as “your” song?
We actually do not have one, but we both enjoy Beatles. Strange but we don't!

Do you consider yourself patriotic? Why or why not?
Not really, not the extreme one. I love my country, I am very proud of its achievements, but I am not overdoing it!

What is something you once believed, but no longer do?
I cannot say that I lost my faith in anything or anyone.

Jean shorts: Just fine or a sure sign of extreme dorkiness?
Not anymore, I don't have the age for wearing them.

Has an infomercial ever prompted you to make a purchase? If so, what did you buy?
I am tempted to buy a Mercedes after seeing the commercial so often lately, during the European Football Championship. Happily I don't have the money :)

What snack do you have hidden in the back of the cupboard/fridge?
Cashew nuts, love them!

What book or movie seemed to speak to the masses, but didn’t do much for you? 
To be honest the Pirates of the Carribean, I simply did not get it!

What do you wear to bed?
PJs, don't you? :)

Is there a story of you as a child that your parents told so many times that it became part of your history? Something cute or funny you said or did, maybe? Care to share?
The stories of the 1000 nights, adored them and still read them from time to time, so full of wisdom.

Good night!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
