Haha, because I miss you guys and I seriously love the idea. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] tiniowien, for inspiring this post!!

So ten facts (in no particular order) that you may or may not know about me:

1. I met four of you guys in RL: [livejournal.com profile] charly2004 (we lived almost next to each other for a couple of years - didn't see each other as much as I'd have liked, though...), [livejournal.com profile] legorlando (who IS a fierce runner and whom I'd love to see again soon!), [livejournal.com profile] dollface_uk and [livejournal.com profile] tiniowien - the latter two at the London premiere of PotC II. Still a fab memory and one of the coolest things I've ever done! I've exchanged postcards with several of people on my flist and I still hope to meet more of you, chiefly [livejournal.com profile] celebrianne, [livejournal.com profile] mellacita and [livejournal.com profile] salixbabylon. Salix' "April Fools" lj comm was one of the neatest and nicest ideas I've ever seen come to pass, btw. And I still pitty that we didn't make more of it. It was a truly great thing, Salix, and I'm sorry we didn't put more effort into keeping it alive. I really owe you for that one, it was a great pleasure!!

2. My husband got himself a brand new king today. Yay! Leve de Koning!!

3. We still own an old, non-flat screen tv. It's almost 17 years old, I think, and two moves weren't able to break it. *sadface* But I can't bring myself to simply throw away a working tv.

4. I once read that if you had to throw away a piece of bread (and I hate throwing things away that have gone bad... It just seems such a waste. Terrible, terrible waste...) it isn't such a waste (or such a thoughtless thing to do) if you kissed said piece of bread before you throw it away. I've kissed every single piece or leftover piece of a loaf of bread I've thrown away since.

5. I'm not supersticious, but there are three things things I'd never do: light a cigarette with a candle (because a sailor dies if you do that - and my dad was a naval captain), walk underneath a ladder and cross glasses while doing the cheers thing. You just never know... ;-)

6. Whenever someone says: "Pick a number between 1 and 100 but don't say it out loud!", I always pick 42.

7. I love prime numbers. I know the prime numbers under 100 by heart. And the most beautiful "explanation" or "description" of what prime numbers are comes from Mark Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" - and it goes like this: "Prime numbers are what is left when you take all the patterns away."

8. I'm a quote monster. In case you didn't notice. *g*

9. The first pairing I ever wrote was Snape/Bill.

10. Even though I studied Latin at uni, I've never been to Rome. I think that's a disgrace.

*squishes you tight and spins you* The day we all got to meet up and hang out is still one of the best days of my life. Honestly - you guys plus Orlando, ... what's not to love?? ♥

Love these! Especially the one about prime numbers. :)

Where do you live? I'll be in Manchester for a week in July, if you're a Brit.

I've been thinking of revisiting the writing-group idea. I've missed writing fanfic, getting encouragement (and praise), and would relaly like to be part of a community where that could happen again... I'll post ehre for sure, if anyhting comes of my musing.
