25 Random Things About Me

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you. (To do this, go to "notes" under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)


1: I was born in Salzburg, Austria, left after 6 months.

2: My parents are Polish.

3: My parents wanted to emigrate to Canada but couldn't because I was under 2 years old.

4: I had whooping cough as a baby. There is a saying that to cure it you have to cross over a body of water, in this case the English Channel seemed to do the trick.

5: I really miss not living with my kids.

6: I like Hugo Boss suits.

7: I think of myself as semi-literate.

8: I like to notice irony and believe "ironic design" proves the hand of the supreme being more than "intelligent design." Because there is someone/something paying attention, moment to moment, and trying to mess with us. Intelligent design is more about "set it and forget it."

9: I'm an atheist.

10: I'd like reason and logic to make a comeback, I'd like to see a new enlightenment.

11: I try not to think too much, instead, allow myself the space to think.

12: I keep a pen and a slim moleskine notebook always on hand - it's my hipster PDA - it's instant on, high definition, stylus input, sharable, and 100% recyclable.

13: I prefer offline to online.

14: I've never had a wine cooler and want to keep it that way.

15: I don't know how to small talk.

16: I am afraid of karaoke. I can't carry a tune even if it were super-glued to me.

17: I like thinking on my toes.

18: I like "and" rather than "or." The world is not black or white it is black and white and more.

19: I like to have my cake and eat it.

20: The more I write the more authentic I become.

21: I like Manhattans.

22: I like Manhattan.

23: I like road trips.

24: I'm intensely interested in the future of media.

25: I prefer conversation more than going to the movies.
