I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! Will you watch the Oscars tonight? I definitely will. I love to watch them. I am a huge movie fan plus I really enjoy seeing the beautiful and horrible dresses at the red carpet.
I know I have just told you that I am a huge movie fan. But I consider myself a huge fail this year because I haven't seen any of the movies that are nominated for best picture. I feel really bad about this because I usually try to watch most of the movies that are nominated but I just did not find the time recently. There are some I am really interested in. Silver Linings Playbook and Django Unchained for example. But I guess I have to watch them when the awards are over. At least I read "Life of Pi".
David and I have watched "The Impossible" last night. I am a huge fan of Ewan McGregor and I think he did a great job. Naomi Watts also. Plus there is a German actor in the movie. Yeah for that. The movie scared me a lot because of all the water. I really don't know if I could survive in such a situation. I would probably die of a panic attack before the water would hit me.
I really wish that Joaquin Phoenix will win the award for Best Actor but I kind of doubt it. But he rocks and he is definitely my favorite of all the nominees. I am also keeping my fingers crossed for Christoph Waltz because he is fellow German speaker and also a fabulous actor.
I am glad I am in America and don't have to stay up the whole night to watch the Oscars.
So, I hope you guys will all enjoy your Sunday night, no matter if you are interested in the Oscars or not.
I am very proud and honored to tell you that I received an award too!
My dear friend Chrissy from Whimsical Poppysmic who is a fellow German nominated me for the Liebster Award! It means a lot to me that I received the award from her because she is such an awesome person and my blog hero too! Thank you so much, Chrissy!
Chrissy asked all the people she nominated to answer her 11 questions. I love answering questions and it is an honor to do that with hers. So here we go.
Chrissy's eleven questions.
Almost a year ago! In April 2012! How exciting! I remember that I started to read some blogs a couple of months before I started my own blog and I loved to read all the lovely posts and leave my comments. And I wanted to be a part of the community, share my thoughts with others, tell people about my life in America.
2. How do you start your day, what are your morning rituals and when do you have to get up?
I get up at 7 am every morning and the first thing I do every morning is to make a coffee or a tea. I am not really a morning person, not very talkative so I need something to wake me up.
3. What's your favorite quote from a book? Name the book.
Well, that's easy. "Animals are my friends... and I don't eat my friends." by George Bernard Shaw.
4. Where do you live and would you rather live somewhere else, no matter where?
I am a German but I live in Ohio, United States. I live there in a smaller city with my husband David. This is not the place we want to live forever. We would love to live in Denver, Colorado or in Ireland. :) I hope we can move to one of this places as soon as possible.
5. Introvert or extrovert?
I would say I am more of an ambivert but tend to be more introvert than extrovert. I don't like to be in the middle of a huge crowd, I love to spend some time alone but I can also be very enthusiastic.
6. What is one of your greatest fears in life?
Lots of water. I am really scared of water and drowning. I am also scared of losing my loved ones.
7. Do you set yourself goals? Name one of your most important goals for 2013?
Sure, I set goals for myself. The most important one is to find the perfect place to live.
8. Who's the most annoying celebrity in your opinion?
Uh, there are so many. The Kardashians are really annoying because they are so dumb. And Jennifer Love Hewitt. I just can't stand her. And I hate the way Heidi Klum talks. Oh, and Tom Cruise.
9. What's your favorite junk food?
Probably fries. Do they count as junk food? I love anything made of potatoes. Also chips. I can eat lots of chips.
10. What do you like about yourself the most?
Hmm, I like about myself that I am a very caring person. :)
11. Name 3 of your favorite blogs for me to visit!
Oh, I have so many favorite blogs. You already know Miki's blog and I think we read a lot of the same blogs. I also love Alex' blog ifs ands & butts, Celeste's blog The Punching Teacup and Sara's blog Sara In Le Petit Village. And many more. I love all the blogs I read on a regular basis and you should visit all of them. Unfortunately, I can't link up to all of them here. But that reminds me that I have to make a list of all the blogs I read.
Chrissy, thank you again for nominating me! You are such a sweetheart and I love reading your blog! Please feel free to answer Chrissy's questions. I would love to read your answers!
Have a lovely Sunday!
