15 totally random questions.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I found these questions on the internet and I thought it might be fun to answer them. Plus I feel really random today. Please feel free to join me.


1. Who or what inspires you the most in your life?

My Mom. She is the best.




2. What song would you like played at your funeral and why?

"Song 2" by Blur. I don't want to have a sad funeral. I want music, alcohol and food. A big party. 


3. Do you have any pets? Tell about them:)

I have two cats (Lumpi and Tiger) and they are 5 years old and two bunnies (Findus and Tiffie) and they are 3 years old. And I also count my Dad's cat Jerry (almost 9 years old) as my cat. 








4. If you could turn any tv show into 'real life' and be a part of it, what show would it be and why?

That 70s show. I am sure I would have lots of fun. 





5. Name 3 books that you could read over and over again & tell why.

All the crime novels by Henning Mankell, Hakan Nesser and Arnaldur Indridason. The Harry Potter books. Die Drei Fragezeichen.





6. If you could become famous, what would you want to be famous for and why?

I love animals so I would love to be famous to be an animal rights activist who rescued millions of animals from abuse, factory farming, fur farming and so on. 
I would also love to be a famous crime novelist.


7. What movie no matter how many times you see it always makes you cry? And what part really does?

Any movie with a homeless, sad, sick, abused animal in it. I cried most when I watched Earthlings but Bambi made me cry a lot too. 


8. What one thing do you ALWAYS do before you leave the house & why do you do it?

I check if the pets are fine and have enough food. And I check if the oven is turned off. I really don't want the house to burn down. 


9. How do calm yourself when things in life are stressful?

I am not a very calm person when life is stressful. I am very calm when things are REALLY serious. When it's stressful I try to close my eyes and think of something nice. And drink a tea.


10. What is your favorite cartoon?

Ghostbusters, Inspector Gadget and The Gummi Bears. 





11. Do you have any strange phobias?

Oh yes. Water. I am so scared of water. I mean, I am fine in the shower or bath tub...but pools, lakes or the ocean. They scare me to death.


12. What is your favorite pizza topping?

Mushrooms. I always put mushrooms on my Pizza. I also like Jalapeno peppers. And I use curry on my pizza.

13. Do you have any scars?

A couple. You can see the one on my forehead and the one on my right index finger.

14. Have you ever seen a ghost?

I am pretty sure I have. One time I drove home at night and I saw a skeleton next to a tree. I think it was a friendly skeleton.

15. Do you collect anything? If so, what and how long have you been collecting?

Books. I have hundreds of books and I can't stop buying new books. I would love to have my own library. Something like this:



Have a lovely Wednesday!

  4. I'm completely anal when it comes to making sure the stove is off & all the windows/doors are locked before I leave the house. Omg, Ghostbusters used to be my favorite cartoon too! Haha, so cool.

  10. My brother has said similar of his funeral. It would be cool if you were a famous crime novelist. I collect books also. I always thought I wanted a library in my house but having moved a few times with many of my books (many more are still at my parents' house), I'm not sure if it will ever be practical unless I settle into one place. If it weren't for half.com I'd probably go broke buying books.

    1. Like that your brother wants a similar funeral. :)
      Yeah, I guess having so many books is a pain in the ass when you move a lot. I have always dreamed of owning a castle and then I would have a library in the tower of it. :)

  11. :) lol yeah it is, although this time at least someone else had to load and unload them from the truck. One of the guys who unloaded them kept commenting about bringing in more books every time he brought a box. I have about half a dozen that are in the basement I haven't unpacked and I feel like I am missing some that I wonder if they did not make it, or if they got into a larger box or something, but I guess I'll find out when we move again. That would be cool. I have heard of people who build their own castles in the States.
