8 random things about myself

I've been tagged by Anja.

So here I go - 8 things about myself:

flasche
I'm drinking a lot of water during the day. Everywhere I go and everywhere I stay, I have a plastic bottle of (tap) water with me.



I wear my hair in dreadlocks. That's not because I think it's cool to copy or appropriate black culture as a white person. It's because it's the only hairstyle which works for me. I like long hair but I hate haircare - I don't have to comb out knots because my hair already is knotted. And I don't have to go to the hairdresser to have a short haircut every 3 weeks or so. And it's a natural protection for the head - if you bump against something, the hair serves as a natural helmet.


I love klezmer music!


I'm going to learn to play saxophone. My mother used to play and has stopped it, but she doesn't want to sell it or give it away. And I was the only family member who agreed to learn to play it.


I love quilting, surprise, surprise!


I collect the fabric waste in a basket and stuff yoga-cushions with them.


I somewhat neglect my plants, so only the sturdiest and strongest survive in my flat.


I really want healthy teeth!!

Feel free to post 8 things about you on your blog and give me the link in a comment. :)

Inside the bag

I've been tagged by Anashee.

1. Take a picture of your bag.

Isn't it beautiful! I love this bag! Pictures of the making are here, here and here (on ipernity.com)

2. Now dump everything out and neatly adjust them, and take a picture (no matter how embarrassing).

3. Talk about the items inside. Detail.

On the left side there is a pouch made from leather, where I keep my passport. I have no ID card because I'm an Austrian in Germany and we don't get ID cards if we live abroad. So I have to carry around the passport.
Below, with "Blättchen" written next to it is a packet of cigarette rolling paper.
To the right, my purse with my money and public transport tickets and so on. I made that myself :-)
Below the purse 3 Tampons and a ballpen.
And on the right side 3 small scraps of paper with grocery lists on them and one with the postal adress of a friend whom I need to send a packet.
Above the notes, 2 buttons I found on the street on a single day!
Then there is an accu for the camera. The camera itself is not on the picture for obvious reasons - I had to take the pic with it.

The small bag with "Adapterbeutel" written next to it is for my adapters for my bicycle tyre valves. On the front wheel I've got a normal valve and on the back wheel a "car" valve. When I want to pump them up I use the first adapter to fill air at the gas stations in my front tyre, and I use the second adapter to use a normal bicycle pump to pump up the back tyre.

I've got no mobile phone and I'm happy that I don't need one!

4. Tag 6 people. (Don’t tag the person that was already tagged.)

I already tagged 6 people on my german blog, I'm not sure if 6 people are coming here at all ;-)
If you stop by and haven't already been tagged please feel free to show me your bag! And leave a comment if you do so that I know where I can see it!
