The Magic Monfils Brotherhood ===<--@
 
To avoid the confusion andhave some fun during the winter break, let's write a few sentences about ourselves. I guess I am not the right person to start, but the hell why not ;)

My "artistic nickname" is Nathaliia M. and Natalia is my real name, so it isn't far from the truth. I come from Poland, I study in Wrocław (at Law Faculty) and I'm 20 years old. I like tennis from 1999 since I have seen Marcelo Rios of course... Oh, actually the first match I saw was between Fernando Meligeni and Tim Henman... I was surprised about the doubles corridor, why the linesmen shouted "out".

Anyways... my faves now are (of course, I will always admire Rios and Meligeni!) from the first row: Gael Monfils, David Nalbandian, Guillermo Coria (for his magic), Jarkko Nieminen and from the second row I have so many favourites that it's hard to mention them all, but how would I be able to forget about Juan Martin del Potro, Michael Ryderstedt or Santiago Giraldo, or the Polish players Marcin Matkowski and Mariusz Fyrstenberg.

I like writing... the air-mail letters (yeaaah ;) )... and the stories... and I like writing about tennis... I worked in a press office in Szczecin challenger and Aachen challenger (Germany), and it looks I will work in Wrocław and it looks I may work for... (OK... things are not confirmed, nevermind).

I like long night walks and I don't care it may e not safe :rolleyes:. I like good music... different kinds as long as it's good and has melody or the climate... my fave bands these days are System of a Down, Placebo, Starsailor, Katatonia, The Killers, Garbage, HIM, Apocalyptica, Die Toten Hosen, Franz Ferdinand, Manu Chao, Nightwish, Guano Apes and many many more :yeah:.

The funny thing about me... oh there would be many to talk about... but the last one which still makes me laugh... I was shown at Zabaleta & Chela TV Show in South America. It was when I was writing an article from the practise session and they got me taped ;).

Good idea. :)

First i'll react to your post then i'll talk about myself ^^

:lol: at the doubles corridor comment...
For me, it was the opposite... i didn't know why they didn't shout "out" when it was a doubles match, the first time i saw one on tv. ^^

You like Garbage and Manu Chao? :hearts:
I used to really like SOAD and Placebo... And Nightwish actually. But for some reason, i don't listen to their cd's anymore :awww:

You were on the Zabaleta & Chela show? Ohhh, so you're one famous person :worship:
More seriously, that's cool :cool:

Now, me. :/

Um...
Well my name's Parissima. I just decided to use it as my username, because it's easier (and i had no idea for another username) and i knew it wouldn't be already taken by someone else :p.
I turned 18 about two months ago. I still don't see why make such a big deal about it :confused:
I've always lived in Paris. Well, not exactly, i was in the USA for several months when i was a tiny lil baby, but that doesn't count, does it? ^^
I study medecine at the Pierre & Marie Curie University in Paris (and it's my first year).

About tennis...
I've really started to like it during this year's french open, when watching Paulo's last match there and then Rafael Nadal play the finals against Puerta.
I'd been to the french open 3 times before, because my mother had tickets from her job. And i had really enjoyed it back then, since i knew some players so i could actually cheer for someone (-> Martina Hingis, Seb Grosjean, Marat Safin, Andre Agassi, Mary Pierce and the Williams sisters), but i just wasn't that interested in tennis.

Now "mes chouchous" are : Richard Gasquet, Gal Monfils, Paulo Mathieu, Arnaud Clment, Seb Grojean, Roger Federer, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Robredo, Carlos Moya and Rafael Nadal. As for the girls: Mary Pierce, Tatiana Golovin, Amlie Mauresmo, Kim Clijsters and Lindsay Davenport, basically.

I like to read a lot... Right now, i'm reading Stephen King's It. I love the Harry Potter books, A Series Of Unfortunate Events, and The Chronicles of Narnia. I love the french writer Amlie Nothomb.
I also like to write a bit... I send mail to a friend of mine who lives in Alsace (we talk to each other on MSN, but we like to exchange letters, it's fun ^^). I also write on my blog, but it's not the same kind of writing i guess :p
I love to travel too. I've been going to foreign countries since i was born (i learned how to walk in Los Angeles :cool: :lol: ). So far i've been to the USA, Canada, Mexico, Spain (looong ago), Italy, Greece, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, England and Iran.
I would love to go to Asia or more northern countries... :)
And i also really enjoy going to the cinema, at least 3 times per month...My favorite actors are Alan Rickman, Gary Oldman, Jason Isaacs, Ralph Fiennes, Mel Gibson, Tom Hanks, Jim Carrey, Bruce Willis. Favorites actresses are Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley, Julie Andrews, Christina Ricci...

Music... Ahhh... It's the same, i don't care about the style of music, as long as it sounds good to me/has a good rythm or melody, i'll love any song.
At the moment, my favorite bands are Garbage, the Sugababes, U2, Linkin Park, Lucy Pearl, Indochine (french band ^^). My favorite singers would be Christina Aguilera, Cline Dion, Shakira, Ray Charles, Madonna, ...

There's not much else i can say about me here, i think...
:scratch:

Hi Parissima! What a unique name, by the way! /ehh at least I think so.../ I have been to Paris this year... few days... and later at Cote d'Azur. Amazing places... I guess Paris is the most beautiful place in the world!

Maria Skłodowska - Curie was Polish, actually ;) The road named after her leads straight from my dormitory to the People's Hall where in Wrocław is held a challenger :yeah:. So this wise lady is connected with some good things for both of us.

I've never been to RG of course, but it's my dream... One day I will. Oh and Seb Grosjean was one of my fave players and he is still! I don't know how I managed to forget him.

Stephen King is my fave author as well :lol: and Aguilera, Shakira and Celine Dion are my fave female singers :yeah:. All the Gael's fans are the same :confused: :haha:

I like travelling, too. I've been to many places in Europe, apart from Poland (in order of appearance): Czech Republic, Ukraine, Moldavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Italy, Vaticane, San Marino, Germany, France and Monaco.

:wavey:

Thanks, about my name. It's not that unique... if you got to Iran :p (however, there, Parissa is more common than Parissima, but anyways ^^).

What time of the year did you come to Paris and the Cte d'Azur? Glad you liked it, by the way :)

Ohh right. At one time i knew Marie Curie was Polish, but my memory doesn't work that well ^^. Well, that's great. That's one first thing we have in common ;)

I dunno, but seems like it :lol:

Stephen King terrifies me. I swear... He's such a great writer tho' (that's why i can't resolve myself to stop reading It :( ).

Oh, and you've been to all those western european countries i'd love to go to (my father's been to some of them for his job and he thought it was great).

Is Monaco really as small as they say it is?
I really can't imagine a 2km country :scratch:

Nathaliia 11-25-2005 01:30 PM

Re: @->-- The WHO ARE WE Thread -->-@
 
Are you originally from Iran? As many people who will come and post (maybe next season :tape: ) are from France and they have different roots, I wanted to tell you I am not 100% Polish...
My greatgrandmother was American Indian and my greatgrandfather was from Belgium.

Yes, Monaco is very small, but they have good supermarkets with quite cheap wine and very expensive vodka from Poland. I suppose I can make a business on smuggling ;) I didn't sightsee much in Monaco, because it was the enthroning of Prince Albert and almost everything (apart from this supermarket) was closed for tourists. I only heard some echo from Joe Cocker's concert.

:wavey:

Re: @->-- The WHO ARE WE Thread -->-@
 
Ohhh so you were there not long ago!

Both my parents are Iranian. But i was born in France. I'd consider myself as 70% french and 30% iranian (because i don't speak the language, don't know that much about the culture or history...).

It's an interesting mix : Polish, American Indian and you've also got origins in Belgium! :) That's cool.

Are you planning to actually move and live in London? Just curious. :angel:

I've been in London twice in summer (even if I didn't mention this trip in my previous post). My sister is working in the Imperial College, and shes helping me to look for a British Visa. I need to improve my English to earn more points in the migration system. I dont know if Ill be able to get a good job/business there but our Country is in troubles.

parissima 11-25-2005 02:50 PM

Re: @->-- The WHO ARE WE Thread -->-@
 
Oh so you know a lil bit what it's like there.
Your sister seems to be having a nice job, it's nice of her to help you with the Visa (it's not always easy to get eh...).
At least, you're good at writing. I guess it's the speaking you need to improve? ;)
I'm sorry to hear that about your country, i didn't really know...
Hope it'll work out for you, you'll keep us informed, right? :D
But, yeah, that'll be in a while... ^^

(now i need to work on my signature here :p)

Sol ;) And we both like Guillermo Canas, right?
Sol and I met once on the old forum of www.atptennis.com

I've never been to London, but be assured you will meet there thousands thousands of Polish people. I suppose Polish is now the second spoken language in London, so I can give you some lessons ;)
