ok I was tagged by hila -- so here are 7 random facts about me ---==

I read a lot. I'm making my way through ulysses right now. if a bit slowly.
when I was younger I wanted to be an archaeologist.
I have cold feet & hands and long hair.
when I need to think I go for a walk.
I can eat breakfast food anytime.
words & language fascinate me.
I love looking at things.

I tag anyone who's interested -)


  1. how are you finding ulysses? i tend to think that james joyce's writing is very impenetrable, but there are bits of this text that i find interesting.

    nice to learn more about you, marie :)

  2. I also wanted to be an archaeologist when I was younger!
    And I used to have cold hands and feet, but acupuncture for something unrelated fixed it! (Just a thought!)
    Love your blog.

  3. i could eat breakfast all day long, too. and the breakfast on the second photo looks delicious to me!

  4. Marie, have you seen your mobile in the current issue of Inside Out?

  5. hi hi, i could have written almost the similar kind of list about my self.
    except i´m not reading ulysses at the moment, i´m reading Muriel Barbey´s L´√©legance du h√©risson. in finnish though.

    i need to think a bit now, so i make a little walk.
    have a nice day Marie.

  6. well it is a great book...but does take some effort. oh i could eat breakfast food all day long as well (and popcorn!!) & i wanted to be an archaeologist...
    i have short hair...but my goal is to have long! ;)

  7. danica - I'm enjoying it a lot, the writing sits so perfectly and also makes me laugh :)

    aether - I've never tried acupuncture, but I don't actually mind having cold extremities :)

    irene - thanks! it's oats with banana/ apple/ dried apricot/ sunflower seed/ almond.

    lynn - I'll have a look, thanks!

    outi - I haven't heard of her, I'll have to look it up!

    jane - ah growing hair out can be a pain, I had a fringe for a while and it was so tempting to trim it! I'd cut my hair short like jean seberg if I had the guts :)

  8. nice to read a little more about you!

  9. nice, the thing with the breakfast is the same with me. absolutely. and books and readings are a passion too :)

  10. thanks for sharing. you have such great simplicity about you. its attractive :-)

  11. i tried ulysses... think i've gotten to a hundred pages and gave up, which is a shame. I really wanted to, but didn't really get it, and feel rather silly for that.

  12. jokemijn - oh I am not finding it easy, but I'm enjoying it!
