Well, I’ve been thinking of what I can do with my ‘About’ page; something that is about me. The following is simply a collection of random things that came into my head:

1. I am German.
2. I live in the UK.
3. I’ve got a high attention to detail in most of the things I do.
4. I try to help others by pointing out mistakes (part of my job).
5. This makes me appear very critical.
6. I try to avoid all arguments.
7. I love a good argument every now and then.
8. I get asked for advice a lot.
9. I give fairly good advice.
10. I can’t follow my own advice.
11. I wish I’d done more at school.
12. I wish I’d be able to speak a more exotic language than just German and English.
13. I want my English to get better.
14. I don’t like my written English.
15. I don’t like people that generalise.
16. I generalise on occasion.
17. I love playing games.
18. I own a 360 and an Xbox.
19. I will own a Wii at some point.
20. I spend too much time playing games.
21. I wish I had more time playing games.
22. I wish I’d read as many books as I used to.
23. I listen to a lot of music.
24. I listen to any type of music.
25. I hate adverts on TV.
26. Some adverts are good.
27. I am full of contradictions.

More to follow at some point. ;)

In addition, I welcome and look forward to every comment made anywhere on this blog. All comments that contain one or more links will be held in moderation and are not visible until approved. Sorry, but that is the only way I can avoid spam. :)

I will also delete/edit any comment that contains so called txt spk, apart from common abbreviations. I donn’t like people using txt spk on the internet and do not allow it on my blog. For more info, please see my ‘Save the Vowels’ post.

Thank you.

    13 & 14 – there’s nothing wrong with your written English, it’s better than most English people manage! (does that contravene number 15?) ;)



  2. carocat says:

    Haha, well, I suppose it does, but I am very guilty of number 16, therefore I’ll let you off. :P


  3. ish says:

    After having read that all,I just realised.what’s your name? That should be mentioned somewhere :D


  4. carocat says:

    True, it’s nowhere on there. My name is Cat, well Catharina. :)


  5. ish says:

    Ohh that’s good.Cat is the short for Catharina.


  6. becky says:

    Hi Cat,

    I tagged you with a game so if you want to play it just follow this link and see what its about.


  7. carocat says:

    Yeah, my name is Catharina, in Germany everyone called me Catha and here it’s just Cat.

    And Becky, have you and Carol planned a conspiracy? You both ‘tagged’ me within 11 mins of each other. :P


  8. Ashish C. says:

    If I had read this first I would have known you were from Germany. :D Nice name Catharina.


  9. carocat says:

    Yep, always helps to read all. ;)

    Thanks. :D


  10. Sha says:

    I live in the UK too. Catharina is a lovely name.


  11. carocat says:

    Thank you. :)

    I like your avatar. What is it?


  12. Sha says:

    It’s a wolf…one of my favourite creatures :D


  13. carocat says:

    Oh, now I can see it. Very nice. :)


  14. ish says:

    Cats and Wolves.looks like we have a feline community building up ;)


  15. Sha says:

    Lol…I can’t help it..wait..wolves are hounds..unless I lost the plot a while back?


  16. carocat says:

    I was going to say. Last time I checked wolves were related to dogs….

    You better not start chasing me, Sha. :P


  17. Ashish C. says:

    Yeah last time I read Cats were feline’s and Wolves were the ancestors of dogs. Didn’t know they changed their family tree when I went to sleep! :P

    I like to visit your blog. It looks more professional. Feels like you are on your own domain and host plus the color scheme is nice too. [Also the theme] Hope you don’t mind the Pink and Gray button on my blog then, since it looks like Pink is your color!


  18. Sha says:

    ~smiles sweetly~ I won’t chase you ~fingers crossed behind my back~.


  19. ish says:

    Yea,I changed the family tree of the wolves.Sometimes my own dumbness shocks me :|


  20. carocat says:

    @ Ashish: That’s probably one of the nicest things anyone has evern said about my blog. :D Pink and gray aren’t my clour, but the came with the theme. I absolutely adore this theme.

    @ Sha: Don’t you try it. :P

    @ Ish: I am surprised and disappointed. ;)


  21. Sha says:

    ~grin~ Fine…I won’t :P


  22. ish says:

    @ Cat: I know.It’s worth getting disappointed.I used to make sense till sometime earlier.I’m going insane now *sighs*


  23. Ashish C. says:

    Cat: But but then what are your fav colors? I made the link button PINK & GRAY. What are your fav colors?

    ish: It happens. You’d better get some sleep. It’s called Shaniphobia, and the commentator above you is often affected.

    *runs away before any reactions*


  24. ish says:

    @ Ash: I don’t think I’m gonna be able to get any sleep anytime soon,I hope I will improve by tomorrow.Maybe it’s just because of the upcoming math exam :(


  25. Ashish C. says:

    ooo. Best of luck buddy! :)


  26. carocat says:

    Good Luck with your exam. :D

    Don’t really have any favourite colours, but grey/pink will do. :)


  27. ish says:

    Thanks Cat,Ashish.


  28. Sha says:

    What?! ~growls and sends the bull I keep for emergencies after Ash~

    Oo..maths test..good luck..I failed the last 5 of mine..and I’m doing further maths for alevels…I’m hopeless.


  29. carocat says:

    I am just really useless in maths….


  30. ish says:

    I failed in the last three as well Sha,Cat.Don’t worry,I’m with you guys and most probably,I failed this one too :|


  31. Ashish C. says:

    Sha: In the real world the bull would have killed me but in the blogosphere I am as powerful as my imagination. And since I am a wrestler cum future conqueror of the world….. ~Goes running towards the bull, catches it by its horns turns it round and round and throws it into space. The bull lands on Mars and thats how Mars civilization started.~ :P

    Cat, Ish, Sha – Well honestly most of the stuff never comes into play mostly but sometimes ill luck makes you cross its path. :) I used to hate learning powers of 2,3 etc but now its a necessity [Although I can claim I know them very well!] since without them I wouldn’t be able to subnet…

    Now I know why my teacher used to force us to learn tables…


  32. Sha says:

    Ash: Damn it ~waves a fist~

    I don’t mind the maths, I can do the homework…not the exams. Oo..I remember having to learn tables…ah..the memories..


  33. ish says:

    2 x 2=22

    Wow,I still know my tables so well :)


  34. carocat says:

    I’m just glad I am not in shool any more…. :P


  35. Sha says:

    Lucky..another year and a half for me ~sigh~ Then uni! ~does the happy dance~


  36. Ashish C. says:

    ish – thats so wrong. 2+2 = 22, 2×2 = 222! Go back to school! :P


  37. Sha says:

    Jeez…both of you go back to school…2×2 = 4!


  38. Sha says:

    Oh and 22×2 = 222 :P


  39. Ashish C. says:

    Sha: Thats so wrong. Thats no multiplication sign! On a computer its this * , you were just putting an x in there. NOW you go back to school! :P


  40. ish says:

    @ Ash:I’m already at school dude.How will I go back? And moreover that’s all the math I’ve learnt till date and I’m happy with it!


  41. Sha says:

    Ash: I knew that :P, just couldn’t be bothered to push two buttons.


  42. Adam says:

    yeah i like what you have done with your abouts page. I should do something like that.


  43. carocat says:

    Thankyou. :)

    I’ve been meaning to do something with my ‘About’ page for ages, just never really got round to it. Once I started it was easy!


  44. BIG D 04 says:

    Your German I thought you were South African, well you learn something new everyday.


  45. Cat says:

    Yeah, yeah…. :roll:


  46. Ashish C. says:

    Cool emote you’ve found there Cat. I’m going to make a post [or include them in one] on all of the ones I’ve found out. Whad’ya think?


  47. Cat says:



  48. upuaut says:

    °°12. I wish I’d be able to speak a more exotic language than just German and English.°°

    I can teach you italian, if you want. Ok, it’s not SO exotic, but that’s what I have. :)
    In change, may I have a greater version of the funny picture you’re using as avatar? Not to use it myself as avatar, just to have it (I love cats more than umans :D).


  49. Cat says:

    Well, my mothers family is from Italy. Near Bibione. Used to go there on holidays.

    My Italian is kind of limited to:

    Ciao, come stai?
    Sto abbastanza bene!

    I can read bits of it though, I used to have Latin at school.

    Nice to see someone else using the ‘Freshy’ Theme btw. :)

    Oh and I made a post using the full sized image a while back. Click here! :)


  50. upuaut says:

    Oh, so you are partly italian! Grande! ^_^
    Yes, I adopted “Freshy” Theme immediately when wordpress stuff added it, I think it’s beautiful.
    Thank you so much for the picture of the little cat, I love it! :)

    Ciao :)


  51. Cat says:

    Yep, I am partyly Italian. Well, a little ayway. :)

    You’re more than welcome for the picture.

    Ciao. :)


  52. Rhysivich says:

    13. I want my English to get better.

    Should be worth saying your current standard of english is very commendable.


  53. Cat says:

    Thank you. It could be better though and knowing one’s owns shortcomings is frustrating!
