Four jobs I’ve had:

  3. Secretary at the newspaper of the German Armed Forces Union.
  4. Teacher.

Four movies I can watch over and over:

  4. Wallace and Gromit.

Four places I’ve lived:

  4. Andernach, Rhineland-Palatinate.

Four TV shows I love:

Four sites I visit daily:

  1. Too many weblogs, but i usually read their feeds.
  2. National Geographic photo of the day.

  2. Southwest of the USA, somewhere in the desert.
  3. Outside in the snow and sun, instead of at my desk.

    Moin Andrea,

    mmh, you would rather want to be in the USA’s Southwest desert now? Considering that we have typical temperatures around 20-13 degree celsius here, I really understand what you mean.This is about the best time in the year to live here. BTW, we had the last rain in October. But I really do not look forward to the summer….

    oh, I didn’t mean at this time of the year specifically, I actually had your usual 30 to 50 degrees (Celsius, of course!) summers in mind. You do have a point, though – it’s between -1 and -10 degrees here at the moment, and we’ve got about 10 cm of snow right now. But at least it’s sunny!

    This weather is calling for a hike in the Eifel. It is very beautiful there in the winter. I remember doing curling on the Schalkenmeerener Maar.

    Daniel, you’re right. I fondly remember the first time AndrĂ© and I hiked around Laacher See. It was in December or January a couple of years ago, very cold and quiet, and much less crowded there than in the summer. We should try to get out somewhere this weekend, while the snow lasts!
