8 is my favourite number

It’s also the number of random things I have to list, per Solnushka’s tag. Said things should, naturally, concern me; I suspect I’d have a much better time listing 8 random things about my dog, considering that her personality is a whole lot more complex and charming, but rules are rules.

1. My high school cross country coach once said that “if the sport were changed to Cross Country Complaining, Natalia would take state.”

2. I’m not a mathematically (or even scientifically) – inclined person, but I am very much into design. This, in turn, means that I’m into things like make-up. I’m into the shades and textures, I’m even into the packaging.

3. I think that In Love is the best place to be – and yes, I can say that out loud, and with a straight face, and in mixed company no less.

4. I find Sim City very soothing.

5. In retrospect, I don’t think that “Dead Poets’ Society” was a good movie. I’m sorry.

6. I respect comic actors and writers. I think Steve Carell and Will Ferrell are just as important as Pacino and De Niro. I think Tina Fey is bleedin’ genius.

7. I think pub food is vastly underrated.

8. Drinking beer while walking down a street is a vile habit. I indulge in it all the time. In Kiev.  Come rain or shine.

Now let me go ahead and tag – MiloRawi, Kevin, Phil, harmonie, and Mythago.

  1. I am entirely sympathetic to number one and five and I’m getting a bit bored of solitaire as a means of meditation, so I may have to check out Sim City.

    Splendidly random.

  2. Just want you to know that #8 is not a vile habit. In fact, it’s one of the things I miss most about Europe. Touring Amsterdam beer in hand and the more casual attitude towards living that it implied.

  3. Never really got into the gaming thing, but I have a feeling that the second half of 2007 is going to spent discovering why… So, I think I’ll start with Sims…;)
    Didn’t get what was so special about Dead Poets either.. but I do love the scene with the poem, and I lurrrvvveee Josh Charles.
    Numbers 3,6,7,&8: AMEN!
    Agree with Solnushka: Splendidly random.. Do not agree with Solnushka: 1&5?? 😉

  4. I’m partial to the number 8 too, my number in numerology, if you’re into all of that.

    Thanks for the tag.

    By the way, I think you are a babe with balls. I’ve been following your comments on the polygamy debate on Umar lee’s blog…. three thumbs up 🙂

  5. Dear natalia. Tina Fey is indeed funny. And Steve Carrell is my new favourite actor (can’t wait to see Evan Almighty). I have to say, I’m on the verge of giving up drinking beer in Kyiv because many kiosks aren’t using fridges and it’s just too hot to drink a hot beer on the street at the moment. (When I was tagged to do this, it was seven. Hmm).

  6. Warm beer? Sacrilege!

    Anyway, I’m hoping to be home between the 20th – 28th of June, so if you’re around, I’d love to have a cold one (if we can find it). Let me know. 🙂

  7. Dear natalia. Hopefully the weather will be cooler then! I saw 40 degrees on the thermometer today. But sure, I’d love to – even if we have to use ice cubes.
