I got tagged (1 and 2) by Rahul and Hari There are a lot of tags out there :) here goes this one. It’s about 8 things…

8 things I am passionate about

1. Food! Especially if it has lots of chicken in it :) even though I look like a complete anorexic, I eat a heck of a lot more than my size suggests. I’m bloody irritated that I can’t gain weight!

2. Music. I listen to all kinds. Mainly metal though. Metallica is fucking amazing!

3. Reading. Yea, I read a lot, mainly blogs and fiction!

4. Driving. I don’t know how to drive a car, and even if I did, I’d think driving a motorbike was awesome! I dunno, it’s everything about it that’s somehow got me hooked; which is why I want to buy a really good motorbike after I start working :)

5. My time, when I get to be with myself. I need at least an hour of this every day or I end up fucking snappy.

6. Manchester United. Glory, glory United! For ever!!!!!

7. The net. I can’t live without it. I dread every day that goes by without me checking my mail at least seven times.

8. Legend. I’m quite entranced by mythology and the epics. I wish I could write something comparable to one of them!

8 things I wanna do before I die

1. Earn wads of cash doing a job I like.

2. Go skydiving and bungee-jumping.

3. Visit Egypt and Scotland.

4. Watch a Manchester United soccer game at The Theatre of Dreams.

5. Fall in love with someone and spend the rest of my life with her.

6. Buy a Monster >:)

7. Write a book. A good one!

8. Learn to shoot guns and be awesome at it!

3. Dawn of empire – Sam Barone (page turning stuff)

4. Dragons of the dwarven depths – Weis and Hickman (do I even need to say anything?)

5. I moved your cheese – Darrel Bristow-Bovey (rofl! I like this as much as I hated ‘who moved my cheese’)

6. Harry Potter and the deathly hallows – J K Rowling (my favourite in the potter series)

7. From the corner of his eye – Dean Koontz (wasn’t great, but I read it anyways)

*whew*... somebody likes My Immortal too :) I find that song passionate... especially the version where the drums and the guitar kick in at the end (just after, I've been alone all the time) - better than the all-piano one.

Blogger Beach Bum said...

I’m bloody irritated that I can’t gain weight!

I was the same way until I hit 35. After that my all the good stuff U liked went straight to my belly. Trying to keep my stomach somewhat flat is actually pretty hard.

Blogger g-man said...

samby: i'd love to man. but i can't until i graduate and stuff. after that, we'll party all weekend long! i'll definitely come and see you. and i'm not just saying that :)

beauty: envy? really?!? wow, thanks! i haven't ever been envied before

Blogger g-man said...

beach: well, i think my stomach is curved towards the inside. at least that's the impression i get :| i've still got 15 more years to go before 35. i don't wanna wait that long lol
