5 things

Steve tagged me a while ago, but I somehow missed that post. Seeing Hanna's response made me read Steve's post and so, here are five things you might not know about me:
  1. If I did not do what I do, I would have liked to work as a geologist (volcanology, glaciology).
  2. I first skied at Alpine Meadows, California, in the winter of 1983-84. I haven't yet recovered.
  3. My favorite novel is Musil's "The Man Without Qualities."
  4. My favorite composer is Bartók.
  5. My first foreign language was French, but it rusted away a bit in the constant presence of English.
I'll tag Lawrence only; since I'm a latecomer to this tag propagation, other targets have been tagged already.
