A Little Less Conversation

April 25 2009

1. If you could have just one more conversation with a person from your past, who would it be?

Well, I would love to talk with my dad and my gram, but I would only miss them more afterwards.

So I'd probably chose SD.
My oldest son is named after him, and I've never been able to tell him.
We lost contact, and when I finally traced him, I was one day too late.
He had died.

When you mean a person who is still alive, I would want to talk to H.v. Laake.
He was a good friend from University, and it would be nice to share some memories and see how I feel about him now.
I'm curious how he looks like.
He lived in Oregon, but has disappeared....??

2. Do your friends tend to be male or female?

I've had female friends, but I had not enough time and money for shopping and other things female friends are supposed to do. So, looking back, I feel those friendships were rather one sided.

I have one very dear friend, male friend, left.
We don't speak each other often, but that's not necessary.
He's terribly ill and I don't think he will be here a lot longer.

3. What is in your car’s trunk?

We don't have a car!!!!

4. What was the last CD that you purchased?

In a CD shop?
That is ages and ages ago. I don't know.
The last one is probably one I bought at the library.
They sell old CD's for one euro.
Hmmm...think it was an african one... about 7 or 8 years ago.

5. What is your favorite movie and why?

Out of Africa.
Because it describes my experience with love, it represents the way our relationship was the best. And I love Africa. Even though I've never been there.

6. If you could wake up with a new talent tomorrow, what would it be?

Never thought about that.

I was never good in painting. Was ridiculed at school because I even couldn't make clouds.

A new talent....

Maybe it's better my talents were recognized and used.

So I guess I need the talent to care less for the feelings of others and start using my talents.
That's not a talent, isn't it?
It would take away one of my characteristics to care for the children.

I would want the talent to make my sites into real money generating sites without losing the content.
That way I can buy what's needed to use my talents.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why?

My favorite day is the day nothing happens.
No ill letters or mail, kids behaving well, nature is friendly, and I feel relaxed.

God stopped creating days when he was tired. So there's no day for me.

8. What are you wearing when you feel you’re at your best?

Depends where I am.
On which part of me is in use that that moment.

At home I like soft trousers and a T-shirt,
but when I'm visiting a ballet performance I can dress up like a diva. Especially when I'm among former students. I love theatre and I love to get the attention when the attention isn't directed to someone else.

9. When was the last time cried?

When I last cried?

Yesterday evening when I won a book at my first twitterchat.
I was soooooo tired of all the problems and of the people who fail doing their job, resulting in problems for my children.
It's like I'm always fighting to make people aware they should deal with knowledge and feeling with people with autism. I'm always just the mom of children with special needs and they act as they have all the power of the earth, and like they know best.

I was so tired!

Then I was following a twitterchat about RDI (relationship development intervention).
I'm interested in it, because it resembles very much what I'm doing with my family and try to do with the people around them.
Because they also train professionals I thought that maybe I could train too, so I would be able to enter the workmarket doing something I'm really good at.
Well, that meant such a tremendous amount of money, I won't be able to take that from my family.

So I cried...
