63 Questions Answered

Foosel picked up a questionnaire and made it free to grab for everyone else. If you like to answer me 63 silly questions, read on. If not – well, just come back next time ;-)

Some dying millionaire who dialed a random number to select his heir :-).

Try it ;-)

5. Do you play Sudoku?

For a while I played a lot, not much nowadays.

I sat on a pony as little kid, but never sat on a real horse.
