It's a Beautiful Morning

february 13 2010

1. Are you a morning person?

No, I'm not.
I'm an evening and night person. No problem to stay awake, just for a short moment that is the border between the end of the evening and going to sleep. When I cross that, I'm awake all night.
Came in easy last night, because I wanted to watch the opening of the olympic games, which started here at 3.
Because people know my children trained me when I was small (yep, I blame them), once in a while I get a call to take over a nightwatch. Like yesterday. I've made over 150 pictures of the opening.

2. Tell us of a news story that truly shocked you.

I try to forget the bad news and remember the good. (Hmmm, that sounds like an easy way out).
A girl was taken by a group of young people and burned to death. As far as I've understood because she didn't want to be the love of someone.
What disgusts me even more is the urgency people feel to make theatre pays and movies about events like that.

3. What was your very first job?

I had to type adresses on envelopes and put the letters in. It was unofficial and more of a help to a friend of my parents.
My real official job was at the national post, telephone and telegraph office, filing at the design department. But they found me so often studying the designs, that they asked me to com and have a look at the designroom, and a day later I sat behind those enormous tilted tables doing my first designing. Wow!

4. What characteristics do you despise?

Putting people under strain to make them do something. Blackmailing. Thinking bad of people without knowing them. And all the other things other people don't like in others.

5. To where would you retire?

Haha. Are you trying to make me say Scotland at least once a saturday 9???

6. Are you named after anyone?

Yes, after my grandfather. I've never known him. He died young.

7. How do you release anger?

In a house as full as ours releasing anger upsets others which makes me even more angry. So I won't land in that vicious circel.
When I'm really angry I look at my list of letters and there's always something that needs to be written. I'm at best to the point when I'm angry.
When there's no letter there's always something political that needs to be adressed.
Because it works, both against my anger and for bringing changes in the issues politicians have to deal with, it has become my favorite way to deal with anger.

When I was younger I used to take my bicycle and enjoy the air through my hair.
I can't stay angry long.

8. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

No. Mainly because the autistic people here at home take it literally. LOL!
But I can be very sharp, especially when I'm with someone who is sarcastic.
With a friend I love to discuss matters in great length and we love to walk the border between sarcasm and humor. Stand up comedy while sitting, we call it.

9. What is your least favorite thing about yourself?

Physically: hanging eyelids, which make me look tired.
On other areas: I can leave things aside and/or undone. Like now the olympic games are on. It's a once in a lifetime event, and I love to watch these people who have trained só much to be there. So I leave things to see them. (Sorry entrecarders, but I think you'll be visited less). I'm quite happy that the girls have vacation next week, so we can adjust our daily routine a bit to the olympic games.
