Evdokia from have a ko(o)kie gave me the Liebster Award, which is a little like a cross between a bloghop and an interview.
So here we go, as a first for me, it should be fun... I'm pleased to present my lists of 11's:
Eleven random facts about me:
I am the daughter of a librarian and a fireman.
My surname - which is either Polish or Russian in origin - means 'little hedgehog'.
I can't drive - never learnt and probably never will.
When I was six years old I got bitten on the arm by a sausage dog.
As a child I wanted to be a geologist so I could collect rare minerals and rocks.
I have a green thumb and love gardening!
I wrote my diploma thesis on the wedding dress.
I am a perfectionist, a recovering one :)
Names and numbers are not my forte.
When I was eighteen I canoed down the Hungarian stretch of the Tisza river from top to bottom, in a two-week tour.
My dream 'me' is something like a fully vegan version of a cross between Björk and Mildred Pierce.
Eleven questions from Evdokia:
I am a natural born night owl, so night it is!
The song that makes me feel good is currently Cirrus from Bonobo!
I used to live in a big city, now I live in a small town.
I'm quite happy with my name, but if I changed it I'd pick something silly like....Karotta.
My favourite animal...It's a tie between a doggie and a goldfish.
I think you can fit both a square and a triangle into a circle so I'll have all three ;)
The last movie I saw was Cloud Atlas - loved it!
My favourite scent is fig.
A cup of tea or a cup of coffee?...Both!
First thing to do in the morning?...I drink a big glass of water!
First thought that comes to my head...Uhm, right now I'm wishing that weekends would be 5 days long.
Eleven blogs I'm passing the Liebster-award to:
Participation is totally optional - I'll be still friends if you prefer to ignore...

10. your foolproof way to unwind?

If you feel like answering the questions without being on the Liebster list - or if you are on the list but don't feel like doing the whole shebang - just answer them in comments! I'm curious!
