I´m living in Frankfurt, Germany.

I started reading for Audio Wikinews, because a friend of mine told me, that Wikinews is looking for people that want to read news.

The reason why I´m doing this, is because I´d like to practice my reading skills and I do like the "wiki-idea".

Addition in June 2008: Currently it will not be possible for me to read the news. I do hope I can join the project in the future again.

My most favourite quote


One of my most favourite quotes is from the late Douglas N. Adams. I read this quote more than twenty years ago for the very first time, and I was so fascinated by it, that I pinned it to the wall next to my bed. Hence I could read it, when I woke up every morning.

Certainly NOT the very best of ideas I´ve ever had … The quote goes like this:

"Who am I? What is my purpose in life? Does it really, cosmically speaking, matter if I don't get up and go to work?"

But still, I do love this quote up until today, even though, it is not pinned to my wall anymore. This is due to the fact, that:

It turned out to be not the best thing, to think about in the early hours of the day. (Especially the third question. ;-)

I proudly present: My award!


Thanks a bundle! Messedrocker

I feel extremely and utterly "smug". ;-)
