7. What is your favorite food?

brussels sprouts

 

 

I'm sorry, I think you misunderstood the question :o

 

I thought I was alone in my love of the Brussel Sprout :D

 

I never make them b/c my boyfriend hates them. We wen't to a chinese buffet the other night and I got so excited when I saw a tray of brussel sprouts. I filled half my plate with them, the boyfriend was like "wtf is wrong with you?!"

Link to comment

I'll admit it....I love brussel sprouts!

 

pre boil, cut in half throw in the frying pan with butter, salt, pepper, some lemon juice and voila!! MMMMMMMMM!!

When I was little, my father used to pay me $0.25 per brussel sprout that I ate. Needless to say, I did not get too rich off this deal. In fact, I may have only made 25 cents, which after I spit the thing out on the plate, I may have had to pay him back :o:D

Ok, I come out from my lurking place...

 

1. What is your name (caching name is fine), location, age, and occupation.

Hello, my name is Chur, and I'm a Geocoin addict.

I'm living in the north of germany, I'm thirtysomething, and I do work in the wind energy branch

 

2. What was the first geocoin you ever held in your hand?

dunno... I bought some before I found my first one in a cache, because the idea of geocoins and travelbugs thrilled me so much when I read about it... like that garden gnome in the Amelie movie ;)

I guess it was my "Lord of the Caches", but I'm not sure. The first one I found in a cache was a "Licence to Cache", I like that coin a lot, too!

 

3. Approximately how many coins to you currently own?

:) *mumble* must be more than 100 now...

 

4. Approximately how many coins have you released into caches? And how many are still active?

I just counted the ones with counted km: 18! And there will be more! I love it so much to find a real coin in the wild, I want other people to have the opportunity, too!

I fear my coloured Birka might be MIA, the last cacher logging that box didn't see it any more... And one is in the hands of a 3-caches-newbie, who didn't answer my email, but I still hope for that little gecko...

 

5. Have you ever minted a coin? If so - how many? If not - skip to question 6

Nope. But I will. One fine day...

 

6. What is your favorite color?

green (dark, "earthy" green)

 

7. What is your favorite food?

I love thai food. And arabic food (Falafel! Hommus!). And Indian food! And Chocolate! And I'm a "Körnerfresser" (grain eater? Can you eat it or do you have to pick it?)

 

8. What are some of your favorite songs/musicians/groups?

Everything interesting... Tom Waits... P.J. Harvey... Indie and Punk Rock, like the Descendents, Me first and the Gimme Gimme's, and I just discovered a danish band named "Snake and Jett's amazing bullit band" that's fun to listen

 

9. What hobbies do you do aside from caching and drooling over coins?

My muggle and me bought a small house which we a renovating ourselves... I'm living in a construction site at the moment, but it feels better to call it my hobby ;-)

And I read a lot (mainly science fiction an fantasy stuff)

 

10. Your general life philosophy can be stated as:

Dunno... I think it's a mixture of "Dreist gewinnt" (Could be translated to "Fortune favours the bold" (another very nice coin...))and "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you".

I am in the process of getting my first coin minted to recognise the work done by ISAF troops in Afghanistan. I plan on 250 trackable coins, plus a number (TBD) of non-trackable coins for Canadian Forces personel who don't geocache but still want one.

 

If this goes well, I've already got my second coin all planned out -- this one's for me ;)

Still working on my next coin :mad:

Right now I have a mix of Nine Inch Nails, Crystal Method, and Fatboy Slim on my MP3 player. I also like Jazz, Blues, and Classical.

 

Mostly unchanged, except that my mp3 player currently has St. Germain, Propellerheads, Oscar Peterson, Miles Davis, and Chemical Brothers on it.
