I'm now reading The Arabian Nights. And I just got a book for my birthday, The Picture of Dorian Gray. I have long wanted to read it, and this version is in both English and German so hopefully I will do some serious learning from it.

Oh, well you can't have played that long ago then, Lich King only came out at the end of 08. Cataclysm is due in the summer I believe. I can't play at the moment because I've only got a 56k connection while I'm waiting to have my broadband set up (I've just moved in to a new flat.) I'm missing it li...

I don't know that many people IRL who play it. And none on my server apart from my boyfriend. Cataclysm is the new expansion. Did you play after the first expansion, Burning Crusade, came out? There has been another on in between as well, Wrath of the Lich King. They both introduced new continents, ...

Right I can't possibly be the only WoW player on HOL. So come tell me about your game. I play on Shadowsong EU. I started in December 07 so a relative newbie as most people I know got the game when it came out. I used to think of it as a bit ultra geeky but my boyfriend (hadn't been going out long a...

I played Sims 3 quite a bit over the summer but I haven't touched it now in months. Most things like that come and go for me so no big deal but to be honest I usually expect my "on" phase to last longer than a couple of months. Sims 3 is just an extra bit frustrating because you can only play the on...

Monopoly is a bit of a classic. No one ever wants to play it though, takes too long. I really must buy my own board though, I mean if you don't have Monopoly who are you?! In my family an old favourite is the London Game. The board is a Tube map (circa 1975) and you travel around on the different li...

My favourites as a child were The Jungle Book, Robin Hood and Dumbo. The first is the only one on the list so I voted for that. I've never loved the ones made since I was born (1987) much. A lot of them I didn't actually see as a child because I didn't get to the cinema much or have many videos, so ...

I would estimate ten books a year, but I don't think that's a lot. I read much more when I was a child (up to about age 14) - at least one book a week. I wish I would read more but I'm quite lazy about it now and I struggle to find books that really interest me.

There are a lot of bands I could mention but I am just going to name one name: The Drones . Try them and see. I can totally understand if you hate them, but on the other hand you MIGHT just love them. (Prerequisities for loving The Drones: loving really loud noises, worshipping the word "alternative...

I've started to reach the stage where I can't totally remember any more. It's funny looking at the older posts on this thread though, because of course I hadn't seen so many bands when it was started back in December 2004! Here's a list not including festivals or unsigned acts or support acts(unless...

I was 12 when Prisoner of Azkaban came out in 1999. My friends and I frequently shared books and one of them had this new book that she said was really good. I don't think she mentioned that it was the third in a series! I really enjoyed it anyway so then I had to read the first two as well. That's ...

Since I kind of made up my first name, it doesn't matter too much if you say it wrong! I say "SIL-duh" because I think of it in a German sort of way, and E on the end of a word is usually pronounced the same way we would say an A on the end of a word in English. (For example, German "Kristine" = Eng...

I took ages to choose my name. I'm very indecisive. Silde is the name of my main World of Warcraft character. I originally chose it by playing around with an anagram generator, I was listening to the band Wir sind Helden at the time and put that name in, Silde was just part of one of the groups of n...
