3. I have no tattoos, although I think they look pretty.
4. I also have no piercings, not even in my ear lobes.
5. I really like succulent plants, especially sempervivum, and keep trying to grow them, with varying degrees of success.
6. I take my coffee with milk and one sugar.
7. I didn't like coffee or tea at all until about 2 years ago, now I drink them every day.
