1. i don't eat fish with shape of fish. 2. i am snake-phobic, but i do not mind spiders that much. 3. as a child, my mum used to bring me to the old witch of the village to fight off the evil eye, which (she was sure) had possessed me. 4. i have had only two long-term relationships. 5. i love bending leaves and then i always feel guilty for having ripped them off their plant. 6. i practice yoga to learn facing sorrow and pain and find a sublime pleasure (through pain) in it. 7. i have a tatoo in my lower back which i find difficult to describe (an unfinished circle between brackets?) whose meaning i kept secret. 8. i have had (a bunch) of white hair since i was 2 years old. i struggled to find eight targets (facebook's fault - most of my friends are there now and neglect the blogsphere), but here you go: superqueen,SE4, oggi non ho tempo, kiara yuki, fat robot, aurelie, maga, garnant are all tagged.
