I could not resist. + Funny little frog.

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

okay, I have seen this list so many times now and I am sure everybody is really sick of it by now so that means it is time to make mine. Haha. But yeah, I could not resist. I love making lists (okay I did not make this) so it was a lot of fun to work on this one.

1. Started your own blog  - yeah, I guess you can see it.
2. Slept under the stars - when I was a child I loved to sleep in the backyard. Does sleeping in a tent count too?
3. Played in a band  - haha. Well, I really played in a band. I played bass and the name of our band   was "ausverkauft" (sold out). Very clever, right?
4. Visited Hawaii - no, not yet but I would like to.
5. Watched a meteor shower - sounds interesting.
6. Given more than you can afford to charity - I always give money to homeless people with dogs but I have never given more than I own. I guess I am a bad person. 
7. Been to Disneyland  - I have been to Europapark in Germany. That's almost the same.
8. Climbed a mountain - I have been on a mountain but I did not climb it. Damn. 
9. Held a praying mantis -  No, actually I have never seen one in reality. How sad. 
10. Sang a solo - trust me. Nobody wants to hear that. I sing in the car when I am alone or when I play Singstar Take That with my friends. That's enough.
11. Bungee jumped - No, thank you. Maybe I would try skydiving but I am not really interested in Bungee Jumping.
12. Visited Paris  - Yeah, it is not that far away from my hometown. You can drive there in a couple of hours. Like that city a lot.
13. Watched a lightening storm  - I guess everybody has done that at least once. 
14. Taught yourself an art from scratch  - Hmm, I like to paint and draw so I just say that counts. 
15. Adopted a child - Do animals count? I adopted my bunnies and cats. 
16. Had food poisoning  - Oh yeah, when I was a child I ate some paella and got food poisoning. That was the first sign that told me to stop eating things like that.
18. Grown your own vegetables   - I love doing it. I have tried salad, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, beans, etc.
19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France Yes, but only once. I have been on a class trip to Paris with my art class.
20. Slept on an overnight train - No, but I am sure it would be better than sleeping in a plane.
21. Had a pillow fight - Sure, that's what you do when you are a child.
22. Hitch hiked - No, my parents told me not to. But one time my Mom and me stopped for a hitch hiker because we thought we know him. We were wrong but we still gave him a ride.
23. Taken a sick day when you’re not ill The bunnies were sick so I had no other choice.

30. Watched a sunrise or sunset - I guess it is complicated to avoid this.

33. Seen Niagara Falls in person - Hopefully I can see it someday.

35. Seen an Amish community - I see Amish people at the grocery store all the time but I have never seen where they live.
36. Taught yourself a new language - I don't know. I mean, I have learned some at school but I have also taught myself a lot. So I don't know. 
37. Had enough money to be truly satisfied - No, come on. Haha. I need more. 
38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person - From far away but that still counts.
39. Gone rock climbing - I would like to.
40. Seen Michelangelo’s David    Yeah, my best friend Julia lived in Florence for a while.
41. Sung karaoke Yes, lots of times. I am really bad. 
42. Seen Old Faithful geyser erupt - No, but it would be great. I also want to see the geysers in Iceland.
43. Bought a stranger a meal at a restaurant - Hmm, not in a restaurant but I bought food for a homeless person. Does that count?
44. Visited Africa - Someday...
45. Walked on a beach by moonlight  at the North Sea.

My song of the day:
Belle & Sebastian, "Funny little frog"

Have a lovely Wednesday!


  1. I love Europapark!!! I got to go when I was little, and I loved it!

    1. I love that place. I hope I will be able to visit it with David someday.

  2. Hey there!

    So your grandma is from the Czech Republic? My grandpa is from the Sudetenland, what about yours?

    I´m just a little curious: What German TV-celebrities did you "meet" :o were involved in a lawsuit o_O More details, please ;)

    Have a great day!

    1. That is soooo cool! My Grandma is from Sudetenland too! :) What town is your Grandpa from? Maybe they knew each other? :)

      Haha, I have met "Ute" from Unter Uns and a guy from "Alphateam" (German Emergency Room, hehe.). So very famous people. :))

      Yeah, that's a long story. :) But I wasn't the "bad guy". I'll tell you!

  3. That's a cool list. Where did you get it?

    You need to see a meteor shower. The next best one is coming up August 13th in the wee morning hours after midnight. You should watch it! :)

    1. I found it on some other blogs and thought it might be interesting to see what I have done so far. :)

      That sounds so great! I will definitely watch it! I hope I will be able to see it here!

  4. You know, I'm pretty sure I've never seen a praying mantis either.

  5. I haven't seen this meme before. some questions are really stupid but it's mostly fun! really cool that you played in a band! :)

  6. Hola he llegado blogeando a tu blog y me parece interesante. Te invito a que visites a bruna....

    Si te gusta.... no dudes en seguir nuestras actualizaciones!!!!

  7. i love your answers to the ones you have done yet especially skinny dipping no i don't like cold water. me neither!

  8. 37 out of 100 isn't too bad. Actually, after looking over the list I think I've maybe done about 20. Maybe.

    Yeesh, I think I need to get out more haha.

    1. I guess some of the things are just stupid. :)

  9. This was interesting. I couldn't resist either and filled it out as I was reading yours. I want to add some pics and am way too tired for that tonight so maybe I'll put it up tomorrow. Oh the skinny know you could do it in warm water right? lol. If you're not comfortable to is totally fine but the time I did it was in FL where the water was quite warm. I doubt I'd have done it otherwise for the same reason.

  10. That's great! I can't wait to read yours!
    Yeah, I know that i can do it in warm water. :) But most water is too cold for me. Plus I don't like water that is deeper than 1,50 meters. :)

  11. I have to do this now, I love lists! You're so lucky to have seen so many cool things in Europe, but I think even if I went there I wouldn't be able to go on the gondola. I'd be scared witless.

    1. I was scared too! But I am glad I survived! Please do such a list too, I would love to read it!
