I was sorta tagged by Laura to do this question-and-answer meme, so here goes nothing!

1. Do you have any idols. If yes, who are they?

I'm lousy at being an actual huge fangirl of anything or anyone, but I've always found Peter Steele (Type 0 Negative), Meryl Streep and Freddie Mercury to be inspirational. Stephen Hawking's another person I could call a kind of an idol.

2. Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Definitely an early bird, especially when I've adjusted to the 6.30-22.00 cycle due to my office job. I don't really stay up too late or sleep until noon during vacations either, so I suppose I'm overall a morning person.

3. If you had million dollars/euros/yen/kronor/squirrel's hides/whatever what would you do with it?

It's not quite enough to quit my job, but I might pay off my student loan and credit card and pay my way through University studies comfortably. I think I'd travel around a bit and help some friends who have financial troubles (not the shopping-addicts though, sorry. ;D <3)

4. If you could remove one thing from the world, what would that be?

My initial thought was "limited resources", but we'd never really learn then, would we? I think what I'd remove was skewed priorities.

5. What kind of weather do you like?

I love sunshine! I'm a solar-powered panda. All weather has its good points, though, so I'm not very picky unless the weather doesn't suit my plans. ;)

6. Would you rather lose both of your legs or your dominant hand?

My dominant hand. If people learn to use their feet or mouth to do tasks that require intricate motoric functions, I'm preeetty sure my brain would learn to re-route its connections so that I'd be drawing and writing just fine. Losing both my legs would mean having to depend on other people at least to some extent, and as an active person I'd hate to go through such a huge adjustment.

7. What is your favourite food?

As an avid home cook and a bit of a gourmand, I have several, from basic mash&meatballs or cheese cake to sushi, creme brulĂ©e or goat's cheese pasta.

8. Where would you travel if you'd win a free trip anywhere?

I know I've already been to Prague once, but I have such a huge longing to return, I might just do that. Then again I've wanted to go to Florence for so long, and wouldn't mind seeing awesome shows on New York's Broadway...

9. What do you hate the most?

Stupidity and ignorance.

10. If you could change the world, would you?

That's something I'd have to think long and hard about. Changes might have unforeseen consequences that might land us in an even bigger mess, so any changes would require careful planning. I've never been just an idle dreamer that walks with her head in pink clouds with words like "world peace" or "end world hunger" on her lips. I'm more like one of those dreamers that have words like "sustainable progress" and "personal responsibility" in their vocabulary.
