21 Things (Tagged)
Amy tagged me to share 21 things about myself. Here it goes and sorry for the long list:
01. I like to run but when I was young I played judo and rugby (the B.k. is under the arrow):
02. I don't have any brother and so my wife. We were not spoiled;
03. I have a Law Degree from "La Sapienza" University in Rome. I also have a Grad. Dip. in "Accountancy". However I don't use them because I work in the maritime branch:
04. I was not a good student and only thanks to my mom and my wife I got those "titles" because I spent all my time on my "own business" (playing rugby, reading, lazy, traveling ecc);
05. In 1977 I had a terrible car-crash, I finished down in a slop after many "somersaults". I was lucky because I left the broken car completely unhurt;
06. I have never smoked;
07. I am teetotal;
08. I don't eat seafood;
09. I love Coca Cola;
10. My favorite movie is Clockwork Orange;
11. I like to read historical books mainly about the ancient roman and the etruscan people;
12. I love to spend some days in Scotland. Before Italy entered in the 6Nations Tournament (rugby) I was a proud member of the Tartan Army. However I like all the british rugby;
13. Running? I have been running since 1985 even if my first race was in 1969 and I arrived 6th among all the students of the junior high schools: I was very upset because I considered it as a failure;
14. I spent a short part of my life in the Naval Bases of Taranto and La Maddalena. Here are my children in La Maddalena. Now Paolo is 32 and Elisa 27.
15. Both my children work in the port. Paolo in a terminal container and Elisa in a private company. My wife Daniela is an elementary school teacher.
16. We got married in 1979 when she was 19 and I was 23. We get very well together.
17. I traveled a lot, in Europe, in Asia and in Africa. Here we are in Tunisia, Sahara Desert.
18. During my trips I had the chance to race in Athens (10k), Edinburgh (10 ml and 5 k) and Berlin (half marathon);
19. I like the rock music. Among the oldies I prefer the Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry and now I love the gothic rock. Here is an example: Nightwish (wonderful rock band and the voice of Tarja is inimitable)!!!!!
20. I hope to finish the Pisa Marathon on dec. 18th.
21. .....have a wonderful week end!!!!
