Answering these four questions from JBanana:

What's the stupidest way you ever hurt yourself?

It was New Year's Eve 2012-2013. I was at the beach, playing ball with some kids, and had quite a few beers already. I decided to do a flip and throw the ball while I was mid-air. It worked, but a wave came in just before, lowering the water level as I performing my stunt.

Without enough water for my fall I went face first on the sand. I scratched my forehead and nose bridge, and came out of the water with blood dripping all over my face. The kids were so scared that they ran away! My partner at the time covered my face with a t-shirt and took me to the ER.

I still have the scar on my forehead, the shape of a kiss.

You have a coupon for one free thing from a place that sells garden stuff, so what do you take?

Can I get a succulent? I would get a succulent. They're easy to care for, and the first flower I ever got was a succulent, so they're dear to me.

When you last used a needle and thread, what were you sewing?

I was in Israel. I usually pack very light when I travel: I wear a pair of jeans, comfortable shoes and a warm jacket, and I carry a backpack with 4-5 t-shirts and 4-5 pairs of socks and underwear. If I'm staying more than 5 days I'll find a place to do wash the shirts, socks, and underwear.

This time, the pair of jeans I had was pretty used, and it ripped in the crotch. I used the sewing kit from the hotel to fix it on the first day.

Unfortunately, when I went out on the first night, I discovered that smoking is allowed in bars in Israel. When I woke up the next day not only my pants were ripping again, but they also smelled horribly of cigarettes. I took a long shower, cleaned myself, and then wore the pants to the closest clothing store, where I bought a new pair and threw the old one away.

What song do you want played at your funeral, and why?

I think I'd want something calm and contemplative. I'd go with Brian Eno's "Thursday Afternoon".
