I got tagged by Cassie, so I tried to answer to her 11 questions
and tried to find 11 other fellows to ask the same questions.

“Tag – you’re it!” – The rules:
You must post these rules.
+
Each person must post 11 things about him/herself on their blog.
+
Answer the questions the “tagger” listed for you in their post,
(And create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer- if you can).
+
Choose 11 people to tag and link to them in the post.
+
Let each blogger know that you have tagged them.

Cassie’s questions:

1 Without three things you would be lost?
frizz: my wife and my two daughters
2 If you could be famous for one thing, what would it be?
frizz: philosophy, I once was listed in “philosophers today”
3 If you only could listen to one song over and over again for the next month, what song would that be?

4 Why started you blogging in the first place?

5 If you could have your own TV channel, what would it be about?

6 What is your favorite season? And why?

8 If you could own a famous painting (or any other art object), which one would that be?

    Thank you for participating, Frizztext! I like your answers, especially this one: “trees, for me they are metaphor for developing thoughts”. I like trees better, too. And if I think about it, I like them better, because looking at a tree.. I can develop my thoughts!

    Beautiful artwork. Thank you for sharing, I didn’t know it till now. Have a great evening!

      Without three things you would be lost? God, my wife and my stubbornness.

      If you could own a famous painting (or any other art object), which one would that be?“Manera de Volar” by Francisco de Goya.
      There is only one person like yourself. Name something about you that makes you unique! That’s it!
      Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous? Usually the former, occasionally the latter.
      Would you rather be a movie actor or a (rock) star on the stage? Actor.

    Oh wow, thanks for posting my picture of the Old Love! Rodenkirchen is by the way a district of Cologne ;-) Since 1975, but many still say ‘today we’re going to Cologne/ in the city’ – to the confusion of those who moved here afterwards. The irritated reply is always: ‘but we are in Cologne’ :-D Even I say it from time to time, even though I was born here. But that’s maybe because I heard it so many times before…

    Have a great day, Frizztext!

    • I like the Cologne cathedral in the background, the Television tower and the three paradoxical Stollwerk LLL-buildings … (maybe one day they will fall on their nose with a big splash into the river Rhine – take a picture of this architecture before this happens!)

        P.S.:
        my comment was:
        the rusty ergo meter is a great finding!
        it’s a symbol, a metaphor of getting old and rusty.
        could find a place in a museum in a glass vitrine!
        it’s a kind of Titanic experience!
