From calli, date 12 feb 2004

1. What is the best Music cd/album of all time in your opinion. And why?

Oh help, tough question straight away. I have different favorite albums for different moods. When I'm gloomy I listen to Massive Attack's 'Mezzanine', when I want to relax I have a pile of Lounge CD's, including the fabulous 'Kind of cool' by Gare Du Nord. However, if you have to pin me down on THE best album of all time.... 'Songs in the key of life' by Stevie Wonder. Why? Because of the emotions and the superb lyrics he can put in his songs. Here's a guy who overcame his handicap and showed the world that it doesn't have to stop you from fulfilling your dreams.

2. What sites in Holland would you show me if I came to visit?

Depends on how much time you got :) In any case the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, it currently has an exposition about all the dutch masters. Maybe also the Van Gogh Museum. Amsterdam itself has enough to keep you busy for days. Oh well, what else? The Keukenhof, if you're into flowers. It's the biggest open air garden in the world, featuring hunders of thousands of tulips.
Then, for some action, I'd show you the best theme park in Holland: The Efteling. Not as collossal as, say, Universal or Disney, but it certainly has its charm. Next door to that is the Beekse Bergen, a safari park.
Other possibilities include Alkmaar (cheese capital), the Delta Works (the pinnacle of dutch engineering, keeping seawater from our doorstep), The Hague (home of our parliament and the queen) and the Kinderdijk (bunch of ancient windmills :)

3. What did you think about the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake affair and why?

I'm way too liberal to take offense. I thought it was a nice gimmick, and if their purpose was to shock the nation, it worked. I'm more appalled by the fact that it's STILL in the news, and that everyone and their sister is throwing lawsuits at Janet, Justin and MTV. I'd rather everyone paid some more attention to the upcoming elections for the next Leader Of The World. It's sad to see Clark go, he would've gotten my vote. As long as the current Thief in Chief leaves... Anyway, if everyone just took a step back to see how blown-up this entire Boobgate has become, they'd end the bickering and move on. Grow up, you Americans with your warped sense of morals and ethics.

4. Who do you most admire in your life and why? *This can be anyone, famous or friend or family*

OK, sorry for the obvious answer, but they're my parents. These past few months haven't been easy on me (and them!), and looking back, even a few years back, they've always stood by me through good times and bad. Financially, morally, emotionally. I look up to them, I still do. One of my greatest fears is to fail in their eyes, even after they tell me that I can never fail in their eyes if I do what I can and - more importantly - find a place where I can be happy. I must force myself to stop thinking about their expectation they have/had of me, and start living my own life. If they see me somewhere where I belong, I know they'll be the happiest parents on earth. You can put the tissues away now ;)

5. What qualities do you look for in a female that you want to be romantically linked to? And that includes personality and physical appearances..

Trying to see if you meet MY expectations? ;p
Personality: optimistic, active, independant with a will of her own, sweet, not afraid to voice her opinion, playful, someone who likes to surprise me and likes to be surprised, who can act on impulse.
Physical: Haircolor, eyecolor, length, skincolor don't matter. A sweet smile is important, size may be anything between athletic and 'a little extra padding'. However, I *do* admire the female curves, and so [blush] I would like her to have a nice, proportionate chest. There, I admitted it, I'm a breasts-guy. You happy now? :D
