You Shook Me

january 3 2010

1. What celebrity would you just want to shake some sense into?

I don't know enough about celebrities to know who needs a shake.
I've seen quite some stupidity in the news, but I'm not even interested enough to remember a face or a name.

2. What do you think comes after death?

I don't know.
All I know is that I sense the good people from my life quite near me at times, and I hope it;s not my fantasy, but it's sensing there is something of a way to be in a spiritual form.
Maybe we all go to some form of spiritual being as part of a greater spiritual something.

Ask me later...when I'm dead. OK?

3. What is the first book that you can remember reading by yourself as a child?

It's too cold for my brains to work smoothly and remember that.
How does that sound for an excuse?
I don't know at the moment.

4. What was the first rock concert that you attended?

Hmm... rock... hmmm, I think it was an eastern european band, long before the wall fell. The best rock band was during the open air concerts that are given in town each summer.
The band made me dance... and I've always been good rock and roling. The bandleader thought it great that someone dared to dance with so many people around and extended the good numbers just for fun.
We had a talk later. Even got a beer. Nice guy.
But I don´t know the name of the band. Never cared to know.

5. If you were to suddenly become famous, would you choose a stage name? If yes, what would it be?

Isn't my name good enough?

6. What is the one thing that you wish the media would stop talking about?

About things they haven't researched well.
Vaccines and autism. (Wakefield faked the connection, but people are still in the religion)
And those Dr. Phil opinions about my country. Maybe the usa and we use the same words, the content and meaning is different. Like for instance euthanasia. He thinks he knows it all. He doesn't. Even though he's a collegue, I think he goes way beyond the borders of the profession. Well, I can understand:

7. If you could be part of any band, which one would it be and who would you be and why?

I've been part of bands.
Played the flute when I was young in a starting marching band, which is one of the top of the country now.
I sang and played flute in a folk band. Long long time ago.
Played guitar in a small band that sang number like: "Long long time ago".
Sang in a band a few years ago, all sort of music.
And as a bagpiper....

I would love to sing in a jazz and bluesband.

8. Do you live close to your immediate family members? If not, how far away are they?

Well, some of my family members lived in town, but I've never had very close contact.
They certainly never jumped in when I needed some help when all the children were small.

Now they're living outside town and all is the same.

9. Last seasonal question (promise): What did you do on New Year's Eve?

We watched TV, talked a bit, ate traditional food.
Then we put on "the clock" on TV, and counted down with the people on TV, and sang ourselves out of the old and into the new year with my favorite melody of a beloved singer and artist who died in 2009.
When the new year started we raised our glasses, said our wishes and those who had fireworks (2 of the boys) went outside, and we watched all the nice fireworks outside.
Then we waited until the Big Ben chimed the new year, yelled Happy New Year again, and all told each other that in the future we'll be there (in the UK).

Happy New Year!!
