    Without further adue... :eh:

    What's your full name?
    .. big brother's watching, you know ..

    Oh, you have brothers too? ;)

    what is the meaning of your nickname?
    Bestia/Bestiary is a medieval collection of physical and allegorical descriptions of real or imaginary animals along with an interpretation of the moral significance each animal was thought to embody.
    Thought I've told that already .. ^^

    what is THAT is your avatar?
    Nothing special, just modified some BlueDragon-coat of arms cuz I like how it looks.
    And somehow it's matching the nickname. ^^

    Your age:
    Damn, if I were a lady I could refuse this question. ^^
    I dun remember exactly cuz it's changing every year but .. I guess 30.

    30 :shock: Wow you fit in just well with the ARP official 30+ group. Let's just say we are "experienced"! :lol:

    Where do you live?
    Near Amstetten, just some small town in the northern middle of Austria.
    So dun blame me for my English. ^^

    Austria, like "Sound of Music"? Sooo beautiful! :thumb:

    Hair color?
    Blonde like Brad Pitt (but by far not that attractive of course ^^).

    If you could dye your hair any color, what would you choose?
    Black, I love that color.
    But it'd look somehow "weird", some black guy with freckles .. nah. :hand: ^^

    Eye color?
    Blue like the Caribbean sea. :)

    Do you wear contacts/glasses?
    Nope and never did.

    Full-time. ^^

    Can you touch your nose with your tongue?
    There are other things I prefer to touch with ... :wicked: :mrgreen: ^^

    Curl your tongue?
    Nope, should I? ^^

    Do you drive fast?
    Sure, drivin' is no fun, it's just about getting from A to B.
    But I drive "fast carefully" .. if you know what I mean. ^^

    Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
    She'd slap you if you'd call her that way. :haha: ^^

    How many different cities have you lived in?
    3 until now, guess this was my last move.

    What's under your bed?
    I dun dare to look under there .. no no .. :shifty: ^^

    What's on your mouse pad?
    Printed? Nothing, just plain black (SpeedPad).
    Placed? Mouse of course. ^^

    What book are you reading now?
    No time right now.

    Your most prized possession?
    Possession is transient. ^^

    The next event/acquisition you're looking forward to?
    Today's the last day of "Two Days A Week"-festival nearby .. Korn, Queens of the Stone Age, Nick Cave, Bad Religion and so on .. hopefully I'll manage to get there. ^^

    Best prize you have ever won?
    I've never won anything .. maybe cuz I do never participate. ^^

    Favorite food?
    Everything except fat meat, it has to be lean.

    Favorite drink?
    RedBull .. ^^

    Favorite alcoholic drink?
    I dun drink alcohol.

    Favorite car?
    No special one, it just has to drive fast and safe at the same time. ^^

    Favorite sports?
    Played amateur american football for 5 years ..
    but skiing, better said riding some snowboard is my fav now. ^^

    Favorite time of the year?

    Favorite relaxation spot?
    I dun mind where, it just has to be quiet ambience.

    Favorite music?
    Too many .. ^^
    Dun like HipHop, Rap and Folk ..

    Favorite board game?
    I dun like board games. ^^

    Favorite book?
    Still J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, first translation rev.
    ( But I hate the movies, crap .. )

    Favorite cartoon growing up?
    .. Tom & Jerry

    Favorite movie so far?
    That's tough ... there are so many.
    Lost In Translation is for sure one of them.

    ON ARP...
    Member since:
    *errm* .. too lazy to take a look on the left?

    Discovered it through:
    Curiosity. ^^
    Was searching for some ATi-mod cuz I was bored to death .. and voilá. ^^
    Looked like a nice place, so I've decided to stay.
    And there's no regret 'bout that ..

    Most frequently visit: (i.e. BOG, which forum, news, reviews, etc)
    All of 'em.

    Fondest memory/Best thing about ARP?
    Talking to ppl knowing that much of every part of life and still dun getting arrogant and/or condescending 'bout it. ^^
    You should check out some German board .. know-it-alls, snobs and disrespectful ppl all over.

    Person you would most like to meet from the community? (whom you've not met!)
    Well, everyone of course, there's no difference. ^^

    One thing you'd like to see on the site:
    As far as I can see, there's not really something missing.
    Got something in mind?

    What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
    Actually .. nothing.
    I start "thinking" after my first cup of coffee. ^^

    If I had a lot of money, I would...
    Spend it all and enjoy life, could be dead by tomorrow.
    Well, that's the way I think after the accident. ^^

    Accident??? :think: Care to elaborate? :think:

    If I had the time, I would...
    Travel all over the world, but I dun wanna visit places flooded by tourists.
    Finding the hidden, precious things on that planet .. that'd it be. ^^

    What inspires you?
    Life itself.

    Lifetime goals?
    Getting old and sitting there in some rocking-chair, hand in hand with my beloved one watching the sunset coloring green fields into deep red .. and still being able to remember everything out of my past.
    I dun wanna get forgetful and lose all those things that happened to me, neither good nor bad moments.

    what do you do for a living?
    Working. ^^

    How long have you been doing this?
    For about 15 years now (imo school is no "work" at all ^^).

    Who are you going to interview?
    Will be u's turn then. ^^

  11. Bestia(ry)

    Bestia(ry) Mac'ster

    Actually, yes.
    And one sis. ^^
    But I've not talked to them for .. :think: .. must be about 5 years both. We are not that interested in each other (or better said I am not). ^^

    So I'm already among the "old boys" .. :roll: :mrgreen: ^^

    It's not that common nowadays someone thinking of Austria cuz of this musical, but yep, that Austria. :mrgreen: ^^

    Nothing special at all.
    In late 2004 I've been hit by a car while crossing (my fault), right thigh broken 2 times (had to be nailed), right lower leg 1 time and right forearm 2 times.
    Stayed in hospital for about 1½ months and then about 3 months of physical regeneration.
    Still hurting from time to time, but I don't care 'bout it anymore. ^^
    That's why I wasn't here for 'bout half a year. ^^

    Thnx. :thumb:
    Will take at look into it.

    For snowy pics you'd have to wait about 2-3 months. :mrgreen:
    Or I could goto one of the many glaciers we've got ..
    And no boarding pics for this year cuz of the leg.
    But I won't forget 'bout it, promise. ^^

    Btw. .. pics to come ppl, dun worry. ^^
