So, you probably don't know this but there's a lot of shit going down in the Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg). Basically the Belgians are all very angry about the fact that the Dutch government bought up all the Dutch Fortis assets to get Fortis out of trouble (Fortis is Belgium's pride bank, it got into a lot of trouble because they overdid themselves buying the biggest Dutch bank. And now there's all this with the recession.). All the Dutchies are gleeful. So this has pretty much developed into Dutch-Belgian pissing contest number 134252. And I know this is facetious but I can't help but LOL. You should see some of the headlines ("Great Belgian Bank Dead!" "The Dutch cheekily take over Fortis!")
Oh Belgium, I think there are some other things you should worry about (Seriously, almost two years and still no coalition? Geez). Me and my dad have a bet about how long it'll take till it splits into Flanders and Wallonia. Let me tell you, we're not optimistic.




A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs & replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

B) Tag 8 people to do this quiz & those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by & cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.


01. What is essential for your happiness?
Books, a sense of belonging, my family, rice.

02. What are you wearing at the moment?
Black blouse and a pair of jeans I've have since age 12. Yeah, I haven't grown much. :(

03. What is your favourite holiday spot?
Belgium! Get well soon, Belgium :(

04. What is your favourite scent?
Lemon.

05. What video games are you playing at the moment?
PHOENIX WRIGHT, BITCHES! How much do I love this game? A lot. It's not just the fact that it's totally fruity but the story line is awesome.

06. What do you drink the most?
Water. After that... Milk.

07. What color is your room?
Light blue. I used to hate it because everything my parents bought was light blue. Got over it. Oh, and I have a huge dark grease stain on the wall I repeatedly bump into.

08. Who was your first big crush?
That one dude, Ryn, from Pirates of Dark Water. Oh, real people? I was eight and the boy in question had brown hair, green eyes, and an IQ liek woah. Also, geeky. We were friends but I never told him I liked him. Lots of headdesking all around when I later (much later) found out he liked me too.

09. What did you want to be when you grew up?
Police officer. Prime minister of the Netherlands. Olympic cyclist. Doctor. Mad scientist.

10. What mythological figure are you?
Whew, hard one. Figures from mythology mostly have huge egos and no sense of humour, so, y'know. But I wish I could be Sleipnir :P

11. Do you ever get Deja Vu?
So many times. Hmm, this reminded me of the Matrix.

12. What 3 people do you invite to dinner?
Shakespeare, Cyrus the Great and Eleanor of Aquitane.

13.What is your current desktop?
A really pretty Loras/Renly drawing from the last asoiaf_exchange. It's like one of the two serious R/L drawings.

14. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
She's absolutely hilarious and nice and not full of herself. And if she is, at least it's in a funny way. :P

15. What are you afraid of?
Moths. :| It like this with me: Mosquitoes = red rage, Spiders = fascination, Moths = AAHH DAAAD GET THEM OUT OF HERE! They wriggle and make noise and they have horribly fat bodies.

16. What's your favourite item of clothing?
Jeans.

17. What are you into right now?
Asoiaf. Watchmen (I want movie. I want movie now). Mad Men. Phoenix Wright. All things Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. fandom_wank. Shakespeare.

18. What did you do today?
I had my viola audition. Died a thousand deaths. Got through. Studied. But hey, a few days ago I got a practicum muscles of the extremes of the body. Highlight: The tub filled with red liquid and FLOATING BODYPARTS. In the hallway! Oh, my bloodpressure.

19. What do you want?
To never have exams ever. A huge library. To have it be spring, it's too cold for me now. For this whole recession thing to stop.

20. What should you be doing right now?
Learning my anatomy :/

21. What's the meaning behind your LJ username/name/nicknames you go by?
Cloud Wolf was the father of the main character Twig from the Edge Chronicles, my favourite fantasy series when I was a kid. He was the captain of a flying pirate ship, he had a tortured soul and his relationship with Twig was awesome family drama. And he had a bitchin' moustache. skypirate was already taken on LJ so I went for the next best thing.
