Thursday Thirteen #1

Thirteen Things about zzz

Dear Thirteeners (and others) I saw this strange weekly recapitulation of whatever and I found it quite interesting so here we go… (again)

1. Last week I created my own blog. I’m much more verbal person and never had diary but after reading blogs of my friends I decided to try … wish me luck :-)

2. Thursday is absolutely my favourite day and when I saw this TT stuff I jumped in this bandwagon!

3. Now I’m doubting I’ll have 13 things to write every week. It seems easy at first sight but I’m not sure if student will have such a turbulent life during exam period? Furthermore fact that English is not my mother tongue will make things even harder …

4. OK this thing should be first but … I LOVE to read! I’m not fast reader (on the contrary: 30-40 books per year) but I’m constant reader, I always have book with me. Recently I started to buy paperback books I already have in hardcover edition because it’s easier to bring them with me. Crazy I know!

5. I hate TV! And since I started to live alone (10 years ago) I decided that TV will not enter in my nest! And I’m so happy with that decision. I know there are lots of good stuff to be seen on TV but there are much more trash. Option IS to change the channel or switch off TV but I’d rather put my PC on that place :-) (or plant)

6. I’m Vet student but I’m afraid I’m not so crazy about animals. OK don’t get me wrong, I love animals but they aren’t before humans on my list of priorities. That is causing me certain problems among my colleagues.

7. I started recapitulation of year 2006: important events, best books, best theater plays, movies etc and to write that on my blog. As I said English is not my mother tongue but I have to write in English if I’m aiming to have anyone who’ll read that. Which means I’ll probably write in my future TT posts things from that list.

8.This week I saw two quite interesting films about Women and Islam at Free Zone Film Festival (I have post here about it). After posting my impressions I received many e-mails how it’s OK but senders rather would not post their opinions on that topic… I don’t think I wrote anything offending (sorry if I don’t see it). I’m not sure I understand that.

9. Ups I just realized it’s Thursday already (just past midnight … I hope I’m not breaking any rule with this?)\

10.... (think … think…think) Oh I like Simpsons! I wonder why they fell on my mind??? LOL I know I said I hate TV (and that I don’t have it but I am familiar with what’s on)

11. Oh now when I’m writing abut TV shows I’d like to stress my repulsiveness upon Big Brother! We have first season in Serbia and I cannot believe how enormous lack of ANY knowledge can bee seen on one place. I thought that Homer Simpson is fictional character but hey, Big Brother’s house is full of HSs (with big difference: Homer is funny). It’s such a huge mental contamination watching it! Don’t understand…

12. This evening on my way back home from Spanish classes I found in my house’s entrance a kitten and it starts ingratiating (is that the correct word?) immediately. I never saw something like that … of course I brought it in my flat (outside is cold and it snowing). I’m much (MUCH) more dog lover but this kitten is really so sweet. OK It’s not hungry anymore and tomorrow will think what to do with it … it’s name is “Cat” or “Hello Cat” (“Breakfast at Tiffany” fell on my mind when I saw it).

13. I love this number and while everyone were considering it as bad luck (I guess because of Friday 13th) I never thought in that way. I am Christian (although not radical or something) but for me 13 was on the contrary, very lucky number: there were 12 apostles and we all know who was 13th.

Happy TT, my friend!

Enjoy the kitten -- is it yours forever now?

Milan-zzz said...

Thanks S,
Uhm ... well kitten might be mine forever but it will not stay here. I'm often out of town so this will not be such a bright idea.
I'll find good home for Cat :-)

Happy TT.
Kitties are so cute.

Milan-zzz said...

Indeed they are but I doubt it’ll be happy waiting me for hours to come back home every day...

Thanks for dropping by Maggie :)
Happy TT!

Welcome to TT! No pressure...write about anything. Steal someone else's theme. I think it would be cool, since English isn't your mother tongue, to give us 13 expressions that don't directly translate and what they mean to you vs. what they would translate to in English. (I'm thinking along the lines of "ma petite choux choux" meaning "my little cabbage" which wouldn't be such a term of endearment in English.)

I'm a reader too...I don't know what language you read in, but my blog has lots of book reviews that might interest you.

TT is great-- and welcome to bloggyland! Check out tons of TT's and you will come up with some grand ideas- promise! I'm up- Happy TT!

Milan-zzz said...

Thank you so much for such support and this lovely welcome :-)
I'm quite sure I’ll be hooked on TT soon.
See you ...

Happy Thursday!

Oh, M, you should totally keep that kitten...
Maybe you can find someone to watch it when you go away.

Milan-zzz said...

Hey K!
Uhm ... I don't think that'd be good idea for kitten too! I mean I had to but him/her in my bathroom while I was showering (not under shower!) because s/he was so screaming in my room because I left him/her alone. I doubt I'll be able to found anyone prepared to bee with him/her all the time of my absence ...

Welcome to T13-land. It is definitely addictive. Fun, though to go around and read everybody's thoughts.

karen! said...

poor baby!

so sorry you won't be able to keep him/her, but I'm sure you'll make sure to find a good home for him/her.

Angela/SciFiChick said...

Happy belated-TT..
I think you're the only one I know of whose favorite day is Thursday!

Milan-zzz said...

Of course I will find good home for him (I think it's a boy) :)

Milan-zzz said...

¡Hola Mar!

Hello Angela,
Oh yes I love Thursdays!
It’s not on the beginning of the week feeling pissed because weekend is over;
it’s not in the boring middle either,
it’s not Friday so that you have to think “What to do for the weekend”;
it’s not weekend so that you’re drowning in laziness or having some other fun;
it’s not Sunday hating cause you’ll have to go tomorrow on work ...

It’s on perfect spot, hard part of the road is behind you, now you’re going downhill; weekend is near and you can enjoy in waiting it.

This is verse from one very famous song here:
Happiness is beautiful only while you’re waiting it,
While it gives you only indication ...

Sorry that was my translation :)

Thanks for visiting my TT!

Angela/SciFiChick said...

Too funny.. Well, I like being lazy, so Saturdays are my favorite!

Milan-zzz said...

fair enough :)

Mike said...

A good start for your TT. Keep up the good work and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Chris said...

Wow, I like your no tv thing. I read more and more and watch less and less tv. I used to go to movies all the time, but I haven't been in sooooo long. I just am careful these days of what I feed my spirit. Glad to read your thoughts. You rock! Merry Christmas la!

Rachel Schell said...
