About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Liaising with UK

ABOUT ME

I actually AM a better person in middle age - less greedy I suppose - can't afford it any longer.

PHILOSOPHY

oh what was that again I read the other day? (search) - something platon alexander chee quoted in "edinburgh": "mingle not with people you do not love or you shall be condemned to walk this earth for 9000 years without wisdom"(?) quoted out of me strange silly head so probably not correct- AND did not get it why 9000 years but it makes sense. (trust me i am SWISS after all ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

just got here... in my time i had to do the couchsurfing in bars. so this is handy actually - VERILY VERY!

Interests

I actually AM a couch potato and proud of it? - My interests still change on a regular basis - right now I have places a bid to translate a novel into German because I want to - (or because I am worth it?)

  • cats
  • dogs
  • books

Music, Movies, and Books

Absolutely: Gimme gimme gimme (the one with kathy burke); anything with french saunders in it I suppose, Black Books, (the TV series obviously!); I am NOT going to admint to my bad music tastes here (rather middle-of-the road am afraid - got stuck somewhere between 1950 and 1979 methinks, books: Chirstopher Brookmyre, Colin Bateman, Andrew Miller (well SOME), anything with jo brand or victoria wood in it

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

oh it must be my dog - he's invincible - more lives than a cat and smarter than einstein - he's from são miguel - must be the volcanos or something.
