My self-summary
Here we go. A self summary. Usually I'd say something like: ask me whatever you want to know. But, on the other hand, that wouldn't be too helpful. Ok, I will try my very best... I'm an easygoing person and fun to hang around with. I see myself as an open, honest and interdependend guy. I like the description "down to earth". Fun and humour are quite important. Though I'm not conflict-shy I'm kind of... harmony-loving. I like to travel as well as to talk until the morning hours in good company. Actually, I love to talk. I talk to nearly anyone - in the airplane, the cinema, the bus stop. It might happen as well that I'm only listening, if the opposite has enough to tell. I like to hang out in pubs, preferably with live music. And I'm into photography. I love movies of nearly all genres, especially from Jerry Bruckheimer. Independent films bring much enjoyment, too. I'm quite good around the kitchen, most of the time italian oriented. I love the outdoors, feel free to join me on a canoe-ride through Canada or some hiking through Scotland :)) I'm interested in a whole lot of things and I like readings from Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers Guide through the galaxy/Last chance to see) to Jared Diamond (Collapse/The third chimpaneeze). A german car advertisement says "trust is the beginning of everything". Guess that's true...

Finally, four lines which explained a lot for me personally:

There is no oil, if olives are not squeezed... No wine, if grapes are not pressed... No perfume, if flowers are not crushed... Have you felt any pressure in life today?

I am open, interested, and aficionadous
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to start living. As a wiser fellow than myself once put it: "We are always getting ready to live but never living." (attributed to Ralph Waldo Emmerson) It took myself quite some years to realize this... "If, according to Socrates, an unexamined life is not worth living, the unlived life is worth examination." I translated this into English, so it might be that it's a little bumpy. Hope you get the point. Again, the statement is not from myself but Robert Kaplan, if I remember right...

Stanley Bing (the technology guru at Fortune Magazine) once put it for the internet generation: "an unexamined life is not worth browsing"
I’m really good at
Listening. Computers. And cooking. (Well, this is what I think at least).
The first things people usually notice about me
Sorry, I've never asked them :( I'd like that they notice my positive attitude and my openness, but honestly...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A. Well, I don't really have something like a favorite book. On the other hand, I have something like favorite authors: Jared Diamond (The third chimpaneeze, Why sex is fun) Douglas Adams (Last chance to see, Hitchhikers Guide through the Galaxy) Wolfgang Hildesheimer (Lieblose Legenden) William Shakespeare (Hamlet; yes, you read right :)

B. Movies are some kind of hobby I guess, so I watched a whole lot of them. What I like: Nearly all movies from Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer Die Feuerzangenbowle (Heinz Ruehmann) As it is in heaven (Wie im Himmel) (which is a wonderful, wonderful movie. If I can give you only one advise today - go see this one!)

Oh, I nearly forgot the animated movies: Ice Age, Brother Bear, Ratatouille - just to name a few.

C. nearly anything: current charts, Black (as in Black Eyed Peas), Rock&Pop, 70ies/80ies, Classic (an in Bach, Beethoven, Mozart) Classics (as in Beetles, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley)

D. various salads, nearly anything with salmon, pasta. I recently had a steak under a horseradish crust - that was delicious!!!!!
The six things I could never do without
Friends. A couple of good books. Good food. My true love (supposed it exists). Movies. Work. (I'm only kidding; if money wouldn't be an object, I'm quite sure I could do without :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever touches and moves me. The future. My job, life and love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Now that totally depends... With some friends. Might be at the cinema. In an irish pub. On my sofa watching a DVD. Or reading a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
All you need is love. (John Lennon). Don't think this is private? Think again.
You should message me if
You want to exchange some emails. Or you want to spend some time at the cinema, an irish pub or just for a quick cup of coffee.

And ladies - if you can't make up something more interesting than woo...

Oh, another thing. I'm allergic to first contacts which include "true love" and "marriage".
