Gimme Three Steps

1. Has anyone ever got angry with you for flirting with their partner or date?


2. What is your favorite movie line or speech? (Set the scene so we appreciate it in context.)

The movie: Out of Africa.
The scene: overview of the wonderful nature.

"I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills. The Equator runs across these highlands, a hundred miles to the north, and the farm lay at an altitude of over six thousand feet. In the day-time you felt that you had got high up; near to the sun, but the early mornings and evenings were limpid and restful, and the nights were cold."

It's not as much the quote as the feel that caught me.

Another quote from that movie:

"If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?"

3. What is something that has happened to you that you would consider a miracle?

I always watched my father shave in the morning. His alarm would wake him and me. I would go up and get something decent on and walk to the bathroom after he passed my room.
One day I went in front of him. A moment later the marble lamp fell down, crushing everything on it's way.
Would I have walked that day after my father, as I always did but that time, I would have been dead.

Another miracle happened when I was born and my gram came a few hours later to see me. She was talking to my mom and felt weird. She walked to my crib and found me all blue and not breathing. She revived me.
Thanks gram!!

4. What do you try to stay away from?

Alligators, for instance.

5. What is it too late for?

Finding a true love.
I know some older people meet their soulpartner. But I think I've missed him.

6. If you could write three newspaper headlines, which would come true, what would they be?

  1. Peace all over the world
  2. Cause of autism found and treatment possible
  3. genetic diseases not inheritable anymore

7. When was the last time you apologized to someone?

Don't know. Must have been a while ago.

8. If you to find out now that you would very well known after you die, what do you think it might be for? (Feel free to pick an accomplishment that you have yet to do.)

Influencing politicians in a very tactical way to change important issues for people with special needs.

9. Are you easily angered or able to handle every situation calmly?

No, I'm not easily angered.
I don't handle every situation calmly... the past weeks really got to me and this evening someone was dealing with a situation very egoistic, without any consideration of children, and it really got to me. It was on the phone and I stamped my feet. I suddenly remembered that the last time I did that was when I was a small child. I had to stamp though, otherwise I had pulled the person who stood at the other side of the phone straight through the 10 km of wire between us. On her ear. While whistling on the phone. With all force. In a fraction of a second.

You get it?

That's not me.
I'm a very kind person. But I fight for the kids, if needed.

Will blog about it later or tomorrow.

Have a great weekend!
