About This Author

My Bio resides in my brain. If only you could visit.

Mmm ... okay, just a few snippets and random tidbids then:

  • I was born at home, upstairs, in the bedroom. When I decided to leave my mother's womb, I was all blue, and they had to bathe me in order for me to turn to a more common kind of colour.
  • My mother told me she didn't love me rightaway, she didn't have that motherly feeling a woman is supposed to have when seeing her baby for the first time. She had to get used to the idea. After childbirth, she was just terribly tired, and glad it was over.
  • Even as a child, I had real sensitive skin, and my mother actually had to boil oatmeal in water, and wash me with that water, because I didn't support plain water on my skin.
  • I once won a rabbit at school and my mother, whom I called to pick me and my brandnew friend up from school, told me I was allowed to keep the rabbit, provided I took care of it myself. I agreed. My brother however, being slightly jealous of me, wanted the rabbit as well. So I sold it to him for what now would be about € 2,- after which I told him he now had to clean the cage etc. as he was the owner. Of course, in the end, most of the work was for my mom, but I thought I was pretty clever at that time.
  • My father was illiterate. My mother always covered this up for the outside world. She protected him, and stayed with him, and would still have been with him, if he didn't ask for a divorce, because he hooked up with a woman who previously was married and lived in the same street we did. I bet one could make a movie out of the absurdity of my parents' divorce.
  • I like icecream very much, even in wintertime. Once friends got me icecream for breakfast on my birthday. There were several flavours, with fresh fruit, whipped cream, serveral flavours of toppings, meringue etc. etc. The American company Häagen Dasz once had a flavour I liked a lot: peanutbutter vanilla. Unfortunately not enough people shared my taste, and now they don't sell it anymore in Belgium.
  • I wish I had more time. I always feel I'm short of time. I've also got a tendency to think I'm too late with everything in life.
  • I remember that in high school we had to present a reading list. We had to read about 30 books from Dutch literature, from several time periods. Not only we had to read those, but analyse them as well. Most of my fellow students hated that assignment, but I had a lot of trouble getting my long list down to just 30. I remember getting a written compliment from my teacher, whose name was Ben. He told me I might just as well been a student at university because the quality of my reviews was very high. I still have this note, and I even scanned it in, and posted it to my online literature notebook.

You scored as Postmodernist.

Postmodernism is the belief in complete open interpretation. You see the universe as a collection of information with varying ways of putting it together. There is no absolute truth for you; even the most hardened facts are open to interpretation. Meaning relies on context and even the language you use to describe things should be subject to analysis.


Your dominant intelligence is linguistic intelligence

You are excellent with words and language. You explain yourself well. An elegant speaker, you can converse well with anyone on the fly. You are also good at remembering information and convicing someone of your point of view. A master of creative phrasing and unique words, you enjoy expanding your vocabulary.You would make a fantastic poet, journalist, writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, or translator.

My Personal Dna Report

I should drive a Saturn Sky, I am a pumpkin pie, a blue flower, similar to French food, just like a Bloody Mary, a poet, and teal green.

My blog should be purple, and my eyes should be green. My heart is purple, and my medieval archetype a magician. I am a carnal lover, and a Goddess. I could tell you the story of O yeah !

I cry because I am confused, and I should be dating a Sagittarius. The historic lunatic that represents me is Caligula. I am an ENFP. I am also an un-American Commie Pinko. If I were a movie, I would be a groundbreaking documentary. I am also a white self-existing world-bridger (see also part 2).

My given name isn't exactly popular. I am not ashamed to admit that quite often I feel lonely. My html colour is #4B0082. I like poffertjes, a Dutch specialty. I like answering random questions. My sex-sign is Leo. I like the idea of simple living. I have either a gorilla or a bear personality. But I might also have a rooster personality.

My kisses are entrancing. My energy is orange. I am infected with several human viruses, such as free BSD, brand names, computer games and politics. I blogged about same-sex marriage, and the difference between civil and religious marriage all the way back in 2003. I want this kind of cat. I once drew a one line self portrait. I took Dante's Inferno test.

I belong to the Deer people. My tree is a fig tree. I am a born leader and efficient manager. I know how to spell. I have an experimenting and visioning thinking style.

I once had a black eye, that turned into a beautiful rainbow. I love quotes, I really do.


Still need more? Alright, alright ... try my introductory article over here at the Vine :-)

Overdose? I agree ...
