Thank you Cee!
Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to…. SUNDAY. ONE OF MY FRIENDS IS GETTING A SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY (50!). I really hope it is a surprise.
What is your favorite comfort snack food? Well… cornflakes. But really special ones. I start with basic flakes (which I usually buy in Austria, where you can get the best ones), then I add some dark bitter chocolate pieces, then some sultana raisins, then some red cherries, and finally on top of everything some honey and just a bit of milk. Delicious! It ALLLWAYS CHEERS ME UP.
What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)? When I was writing my dissertation in 1998 I worked for a whole year in Austria as Italianisch Sprachenassistentin. The time of my life!
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I was really inspired by a book. Where I once again understood the teacher I will never be. This is the book, it has been translated into English: Listen to my heart by Bianca Pitzorno.
‘One of Bianca Pitzorno’s best known novels. With a strict new teacher and war going on daily at school, life in class 4D is very messy. But war is not the only topic: there is also love, betrayal, miracle turtles, skeletons, motorcycles, Austrian generals, ghosts, picture stories readers and velvet panthers. An intensely lived school year, with not a single moment to waste. Seventy three chapters to read all at a time, or to savour one by one like episodes of an irreverent soap opera.’
