This post has nothing to do with Christmas.

...but was inspired by Zita's blog. Who must be cool, because she found my post on the webboard about Roman's countersummit funny. And if somebody would tell me how to link from the body of my blog post, I would link to both Zita and the webboard thread now. But I don't know how to, so I can't.

Anyways, here are 22 questions that I answered about myself. Best Christmas Eve ever.

Name three names you go by:

1) Catrin
2) Catrin
3) Catrin

Hey, it didn't say three *different* names.

Name three screen names you've had

1) catrin_berghoff
2) elisa.day(anyone know what song that's from?)
3) beloved_monster(and this one?)

Name three things you like about yourself

What, only three? Alright.

1) My grammar.
2) My spelling.
3) My GPA.

Name three things you don't like about yourself

What, only three? Alright.

1) My inability to do more than 3 things at once.
2) My inability to read books in the bathtub without getting them wet.
3) My complete disinterest in 99.99% of humanity other than as an abstract concept.

Name three parts of your heritage

1) German
2) Polish
3) um...Elitist?

Wait, that sounds awful in connection with the German.

Name three things that scare you

1) disease and death of loved ones
2) conventionality
3) large numbers of people, especially dumb ones

Name three of your everyday essentials

1) the internet
2) humour
3) food

Name three things you are wearing right now

1) A bathrobe.

um. sorry.

Name three of your favorite bands or artists

1) the Eels
2) the weakerthans
3) Charlie Parker

Name three of your favorite songs at this moment:

1) You shook me all night long(AC/DC)
2) Lola (The Kinks)
3) I know what I know (Paul Simon)

Name three new things you want to do in the next 12 months

1) leave this continent for at least a month or two.
2) read the dictionary. Or buy a proper dictionary, for that matter.
3) memorize all countries with their leaders, capitals, main cities, rivers, landmarks, and current issues.

Today: The Republic of Albania.

President: Alfred MOISIU

Main city and capital: Tirana.

Can't find any rivers on that map.

Current issues: treatment of ethnic Albanians in neighbouring countries; major drug transshipment point in Europe; trafficking of people.

1) Passion
2) Honesty

On some days though, these are two lies and one truth.

1) Intelligence
2) Sense of humour

By the way, what an incredibly politically incorrect phrasing of a question.

3) Write a book.

Name three people who have to take this quiz now or die painfully

1) Sam.
2) Andros.
3) Any one else who reads it and ever wants me to speak to them again( i.e., a very select and elite group of people, but you know who you are).

Catrin, I think I might have to die painfully because I am not willing to take the test now. I am suprised that I am number two on the list? When I come back to Edmonton, then I will take the test. At the moment, I am setting an iMac G5 for my friend.

I noticed my name is not on that list... or am I refered to as part of the "elite." You probably think I'm dead because I haven't spoken to you, but alas... I'm still alive - just trapped in my parents house with a damn slow computer (I can prepare a meal and come back to a computer that's still loading)... maybe I'll do survey when I'm back in Edmonton
