More meme... I'm just bored...  
The Challenge:
- Post 3 things you've done in your lifetime that you don't think anybody else on your friends
list has done.
- See if anybody else responds with "I've done that." If they have, you need to add another! (2.b., 2.c., etc...)
- Have your friends cut & paste this into their journal to see what unique things they've done in their life.


What I've Done...

1. I've been on the same train with Alan Rickman, in Germany ^^
2. I almost drowned in a barrel half-full with water after I fell in but turned myself around on my own - when I was 3.
3. I learned that I wasn't ready for what I was ready the hard way but without coming into contact with what I wasn't very ready for...


1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicise those you intend to read
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them.
5) (Added recently by some people) Cross off the books you hated.

Der saß direkt hinter mir und hat auch noch so schön auf Englisch in sein Handy gequasselt! Mwah! Das war am 10 Oktober 2007 und ich war auf dem Weg nach Köln und er nach Frankfurt... <3

Neeee. Wer anstatt London - Frankfurt direkt zu fliegen, London - Nürnberg und nach Frankfurt per Zug fährt, fährt auch 2. Klasse.
Mwah, er is einfach total auf'm Boden geblieben. <3

You need to tell me when you're leaving for basic training so I can send you a care package. *laughs evilly at idea of forcing books on you*

Tomorrow. Hehe. But it seems like I'll be home for the weekends (as long as I can keep my mouth shut and be a nice little soldier).
