Me in 30 words. Probably more than 30. Animals. Random stuff. And the bartender and the thief

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

I know that I talk a lot about books and beer and random things so I thought it might be nice to tell you a little bit more about me today.

I have seen this idea on Chrissy's blog Whimsical Poppysmic and I had to steal the idea. :) I hope that's fine. 

1. animal obsessed

I just love animals so much. Not just my pets (they are the best for sure) but ALL animals. That means, cats, dogs, bunnies but also rainworms, spiders, birds. If an animal needs help, I am there. I would do everything for animals.

2. book worm

I have hundreds of books. I can spend hours in a book store, I love to discover new books and I spend hours and hours reading.

3. wife

I married my best friend David in November 2011. He rocks!

4. pet mom

I would do everything for my cats Lumpi and Tiger and my bunnies Findus and Tiffie. There is also my Dad's cat Jerry who I love so much. I talk to them, I care for them, I cry when they are sick, I need them so much. They make me smile every day.

5. music lover

I love listening to music and going to concerts. I can play saxophone and a little bit of bass. I have hundreds of CD's and some of the bands I liked as a teenager are still my favorite bands. David is a great musician and I love to listen to the songs he writes.

6. movie fanatic

Going to the movie theater is always a huge thing for me (except of the cold in American movie theaters.). My all time favorite movie is The Boondock Saints but there are lots of other movies I love. 

7. tv show addict

I guess I spend too much time in front of the TV. But there are so many good shows and I don't want to miss them.

8. loves to talk

I admit that I talk too much sometimes. When I have an interesting thought then I want to tell it somebody. I am sure that's annoying from time to time. Ask David. 

9. loves to shop

Oh yeah. I love to go to shops, I love to look at online stores, I love to browse for new beauty products, discover new shoes that I need, find the latest fashion. 

10. coffee drinker

First thing in the morning. Black with sugar. Then one a couple of hours later, one for lunch and one in the afternoon. 

11. flea market shopper

Sunday is flea market time. I found so many great things at the flea market. Books, jewelry, decoration....

12. beauty addict

I am a girl. I love beauty products. Vegan and without animal testing.

13. traveler

I love to discover new places. There are so many places I want to travel to. Ireland is on top of my list at the moment. 

14. friend

I know most of my friends since childhood and they can always count on me. I also found so many new friends since I started this little blog. I love you, guys!

15. reliable

If you need me, I'll be there. 

16. aww-person

Show me a kitten and I say "aww". Show me a bird and I say "aww". Show me a snail and I say "aww". I say it pretty much all the time, especially when I see animals. 

17. impatient

It freaks me out when things don't work the way I want them to. They have to. Immediately. 

18. caring

When I see somebody who suffers, I want to help. It makes me feel miserable. 

19. crying

I cry a whole lot. I cry when I see a dog with a cold. And I cry even more when I see animals cruelty.

20. tea lover

I am not sure what's better. Tea or coffee. I need both. You get a better selection in Germany. My all time favorite is peppermint, especially Nana mint.

21. Fußball fanatic

I am German. What can I say. We love Fußball and we are always very loud and passionate when we watch a game.

22. loves to cook

I love cookbooks but most time I don't even use them because I just mix things together and see how it tastes. I am a big fan of pasta and Indian curries. 

23. shoe addict

I admit that I probably have to many shoes. But on the other can't really have too many shoes. I need all of them. Period.

24. nature lover

I love flowers, trees and plants, I love the creatures who lives in the nature. Nature makes me feel good. 

25. painter

I love painting and drawing. Not sure if I am talented but it's lots of fun.

26. clumsy

Oh ja. Things I grab always fall on the ground. I stumble a lot. I break things. 

27. in the car singer

Very loud and passionate. It does not sound good. 

28. compassionate

As I said, I always cry, I always feel miserable. And I want to change all the bad things in the world.

29. chaotic

I try to have a system. The system looks chaotic for others but it is a system and I understand it. 

30. beer.

Again, I am German. So I need a cold beer. Hey Kari! :)

So, that's pretty much me. I am sure there is a lot more to say but I want to keep it short. And yeah, I needed more than 30 words. 

My song of the day is "The bartender and the thief" by  Stereophonics, a band from Wales. I think the voice of the singer Kelly Jones is really great. I discovered the band as a teenager and I love them since then.

Have a lovely Wednesday!


  1. Das war sehr spannend zu lesen! :)

    Ich liebe die Stereophonics, schön dass du mich erinnerst da wieder mal reinzuhören :)

    1. Freut mich!
      Klass dass Du die Stereophonics auch magst!

  2. Haha I like number 16. I think I'm that way too! :)

  3. This is an awesome idea. I've been meaning to do it, but am too lazy. Maybe I'll do it for tomorrow?
    Who knows.
    I liked learning more about you, though!!

    1. You should. It's fun. :) And I am lazy too today!
      Glad you liked it!

  4. Hi! :)
    Now, more than ever, I wish we lived closer...hmmm. How could we figure out a way to meet?

    1. We need to find a way. :) I want to taste your beer (haha, that's NOT the only reason.) :) Hugs!

  5. im a total animal lover too...i do eat meat, but only when raised humanely. i used to be a vegetarian years ago though. im more sympathetic toward animals than humans haha :)

    and ireland is totally calling your name! its gorgeous and a lot of fun. and good beer ;)

    1. Haha, yeah, I know what you mean. Animals are a lot nicer than many humans. :))
      Yeah, I love Irish beer! :)

  6. What a fun post! We have a lot in common. :)

  7. I cry a lot too. I cant help it. It just happens.

    1. Yeah, it happens all the time. I am glad I am not the only one!

  8. Hi, Katrin! It was really cool to get to know you better through this list! I do cry a lot, too, especially when I see stray animals :(. Fortunately, you don't see them often here in Southern California, but in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I'm originally from, God! You got to see them all time, so hard-breaking!

    I didn't know you had both cats and bunnies! Do they get along? Was it hard to get them used to each other?

    And yay for soccer! Soccer is huge in Argentina, so I kind of dig it. Americans don't care much about it :/.

    And, hey, thanks a lot for your comment today! ;D I know you didn't win the giveaway, but I'd really like to send you a little something through the regular mail ;). Can you please e-mail me your address? At

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! ;D

    1. Hi Miki,
      I am glad you enjoyed my post!
      I have seen a documentary about stray dogs and yeah, Argentina must be really bad! :( It is also pretty bad in Eastern European countries. So sad. I wish I could help all the poor animals.

      The cats and the bunnies are best buddies, it is so cute to see that. First I wasn't sure how they would get along but they sleep next to each other, cuddle together etc. It is pretty cool. The first couple of days the cats were a little scared because of the bunnies (not the other way around :)) but now they are fine.

      It is kind of sad that people don't care that much about soccer in America. It is such a big deal in Europe and I love it! I am glad that David likes to watch it too but he had to learn the rules first. :)

      You are such a sweetheart! I sent you an email!

      Have a fabulous weekend!

  9. This was a fun list. We have a lot of similarities. I have soo many books. Haha you should have seen the faces of the German movers when they were carrying them in. One would sigh and say 'more books'. What I brought is not even all I have and I have aquired more since I got here. I also love music. I haven't listened to much lately since they broke my CD players but I should since I do notice a difference when I don't listen to music vs when I do. I think I talk too much also. And type too much. It's pretty much a miracle if I write something short. :-P I love to travel also. I just put up ridiculously long lists of where I want to go in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, and that's not even counting all the places I want to see in America and the rest of the world. Ireland is among them :)

    1. Haha, it seems like we have a lot in common! I would love to see your book collection, I am sure the movers were really desperate. :)
      What's on top of your Europe list? :) I am sure you will be able to see everything you want to!
