Introduction I have always loved making things with my hands. I do like mad jewellery, corduroy, colourful things and board games. And recycling. And sometimes I have little animals in my head that need to come out...
Interests reading, listening to music, playing flute and recorder, painting, drawing, making things, taking photos, board games
Favorite Movies I do have a few, but the latest thing that I remember moved me was Lady in the Water. Anyway. I watch more old TV series than films, so Persuaders! and Sherlock Holmes with Jeremy Brett and Dr. Who.

Favorite Books Too many to list them all! Momo is absolutely lovely and many childrens books generally, Jules Verne and The Canon, LOTR, Timm Thaler, In Watermelon Sugar, all things from Clifford D. Simak, Harry Potter, Discworld series, Ender's Game, Dickens and Austen, Don Quixote, Decameron, Asimov's Foundation, many sci-fi things really, Astrid Lingren, I'm reading Mythago Wood at the moment. More things that I am not sure are translated into English, but I loved them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neznaika oh, found translation, though my favourite was the next book where they are in Sun City http://home.freeuk.net/russica2/books/nez/book.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oskar_Luts - his memoirs are as interesting and funny as "Kevade" ("Spring") in my mind even better. http://linnamuuseum.tartu.ee/?m=5&page=3&change_lang=en About his life a bit And a man called Vladimir Levshin has written a set of funny mathematical books which I love, and I even don't like maths! http://preview.tinyurl.com/ledxdd The books are about Absent-Minded Master of Science who traveld the world with his companion, 11-year old girl, whose name translates "Little One", one meaning number in this case. :) On their way they encounter numerous mathematical and non-mathematical adventures, and the master makes mistakes all the time. He sends his letters to his friends, a set of scouts who read them and have meetings to discuss the errors and solve the mathematical problems. Funny, cute and makes you think and try to solve the problems yourself.

You've successfully slain the dragon! How will you toast your marshmallows?

I won't. I like them without toasting as well. I just love to eat, so I will probably eat the dragon as well. (I expect it to be cooked already, with all that fire-breathing.)
