Emphasis on 'some' ;)

Well, I am Martijn. Basically you can get everything that is essential out of my profile ;) But I will add something here:

My favourite artists are En Vogue, The Corrs, Savage Garden (I can name a lot more, but these are my main favourites).
My favourite movies are Silence of the Lambs ("I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti".. ;)), X-Men (I and II) and The Lord of the Rings (preferred 'The Two Towers')!

That is about it ;)

And I am open to any questions as well.. doesn't mean I will also answer them, though :p

Hi
My name is sam; I'm 16, intersted in tennis, athletics, ice-skating, swimming and can't wait until the olympics!
I'm still at school, studying French, German, English and classics.
I like going to parties, the cinema, on walks with my dog. I'm currently reading Captain Corelloli's mandolin and it's so cool!
My fave film is "while you were sleeping," with Sandra Bullock. For music, I like R & B, but I also like easy-listening and soft rock.

Hispanica

Well, I like these kind of languages and I already have spanish and catalan (I llived near Barcelona for 8 years) and english and my bro told me Italian is a mix between French, Spanish and Catalan...

I also tought about doing Russian but someone told me they take their own translators and interpreters. I've also been told that's after 4 years you're not very far in your learning cause it's pretty hard....

Hey, I'm María Estefanía, yes, pretty long one, then to make it just a "bit" shorter, I put it as Ma. Estefanía. :wavey:

I am 17 years old (since January 19th :o ). I am from Guayaquil, Ecuador (yes, many of you don't know where Ecuador is located, then just look to South America, Ecuador is the country that's at the south of Colombia).

About music, well....I like almost everything; because there are great exceptions, I don't like hip hop at all...I hate it.

About languages, well, I only know Spanish (mother language one) and English, though I know a bit of Portuguese (but just written).

Lindsayfan

Hey y'all!

I'm Kristen, from Sydney Australia. One of those people that is in denial over her country of origin when it comes to tennis. I'm aussie born, but in tennis... I'm Swedish, I tell you! lol part Finn/German too I wish!

Music: Placebo, Sash!, Pavarotti, Coldplay. pretty eclectic I guess. I'm studying Conservation (environmental) at uni and I'm a vegetarian. I like animals more than people (more often than not! Not that I'm anti-social).

My favourite restaurant is Blackbird, in Darling Harbour-Sydney. If you're in the area, check it out! Great food at a good price. Oh,
