800 Question for Me #8

Each week I am going to put a set of 10 questions online and answer them for you.

Right now it is September 9th and I will be writing the 800 Questions for Me posts for coming week and the week after now because I have my holiday and have no clue if I am even going to be home to write these posts.

71) Are you any good at pool? No! I like playing pool once in awhile, my scientific brain is great at estimating where the ball is supposed to go based on where I aim it etc. The actual truth is that I am so bad a it, I never hit the ball correctly and it doesn’t go according to plan. But I have fun with it.
72) What’s the highest you’ve ever jumped into the water from? I think I once used the 10 meter diveboard at the pool. But that will be the highest since I never went to an Olympic pool or anything.
73) Have you ever been admitted to hospital? Yes! Several times actually. But usually for short stay operations and a couple of times for x-rays (does that count as admittance?).
74) Have you ever had any brushes with the law? Nope never, except the occasional ticket for speeding.
75) Have you ever been on TV? Once for real on live television and a second time I was there during the recording of an episode of something and when they were supposed to air it, I noticed it was re-shot and they used an entirely new public.
76) Have you ever met any celebrities? Only Dutch ones and the band members of Abney Park (I like their music). I was working while Christopher Paolini was signing my book, so a friend got it for me. But I met several Dutch authors.
77) Have you ever been tot Legoland? Never, but it is on my bucket list to go there at least once.
78) Have you ever done something heroic? Depends on what you call heroic, I guess. Once someone got really badly hurt in an accident and I was close by and went over to help, but it was not like life threatening or anything. Just really badly hurt. And once I kept a cool head when I needed to do an emergency stop when someone was on the road and we got into a spin in the car in this road lined with trees. The wheels ended up like 15cm in front of the persons feet, but he did not get hurt.
79) Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? Depends on how practical you wanna make it. I fooled my parents into thinking I failed my literary exam for my drivers license and the a couple of weeks later I did the same for the practical exam for it. And both times they were fooled! But never anything more, I am always worried someone could get hurt by it.
80) Have you ever been the recipient of a practical joke? No idea, I am pretty literal. Half of the time I do not even see the joke.

I hope these answers were to your satisfaction, if you want me to elaborate on something, let me know in the comments down below!

For now, let books enrich your life!
