Ten On Tuesday. Cuteness overload, drowning and a vegan find.

Hallo meine Lieben.

it's time for another Ten On Tuesday! Hope you are all enjoying your day! It is so rainy and grey and ugly here. Very depressing.


1. Joaquin Phoenix' reaction when they read his name as an Oscar nominee was pretty entertaining. Snacking and shaking your head at the same time? Not bad. I guess he was pissed because they did not allow to show his new animal rights campaign during the show. It was "too political". Plus he hates awards. I was surprised to even see him there. 


2. He is one of my most favorite actors. I guess they will never stop nominating him because he is so freaking talented but I doubt that he will ever win. The Academy...

3. Anne Hathaway's Oscar dress looked like an apron. 

4. It hurts a lot when you roll over your toes with a vacuum cleaner. American vacuum cleaner are much heavier than German ones. 

5. I got totally excited in the grocery store yesterday because I unexpectedly found some vegan "chik'n" patties. They are vegan and without onions. That is all I am asking for. Can't wait to try them. 


6. I am so happy that my fellow German (well okay, Austrian too) Christoph Waltz won the Oscar! I will never forget the first time I saw him on TV. I was ten and he played a creepy murder who collected dolls.  I was so scared of him. 

7. What is wrong with Illinois? They introduced a bill aimed at punishing those who report animal cruelty. What is wrong with people? You can read about it here

8. I am currently addicted to Green Tea with dragonfruit, acai and melon. 

9. I finally started to read the last book (so far) of the Carl Morck series by Jussi Adler Olsen and I am trying to read as slow as I can because I don't want it to be over.


10. I need my daily dose of cuteness overload. 


Have a lovely Tuesday!

  2. I don't really care for Joaquin, but whatevs I love people at award shows who don't take it too seriously.
    Also, wtf is up with Illinois? That law makes no sense. They could just have a general harassment law.

    1. That law is like a slap in the face!
      And I love that you could see that he did not care at all about the award. Hilarious.

  3. @#5 the ingredient list says onion powder! I hope you'll still like it. Too much added chemicals for my taste though!

    1. Yeah, I agree. I don't like the chemicals either. Usually I eat fresh veggies with rice, potatoes etc. but a burger once in a while is nice!
      And onion powder is okay. It does not really taste or smell like onions and I won't bite on any onion pieces. :)

    2. I thought so. :)
      Eating raw onions is not my thing either. "Bah Pfui" ;)

    1. That was my first comment, too. "What is sheee cooking???" LOL

    2. Haha, glad I am not the only one with this opinion!

  6. Ugh. I swear Anne Hathaway got dressed in the dark. She looked AWFUL!

    1. She really did. Don't they have stylists? :)

  7. Wow! What is Illonois thinking? That's ridiculous.

  8. Um, Illinois? You guys suck more every time I hear about you.

    Anne's dress...(facepalm) Did she not look in a mirror before the event?!

    Can't believe you just now found the Boca chicken! I love those things! Boca and Morningstar both make some great chicken/burger substitutes. Though I didn't care for the Morningstar grilled chicken strips (rubbery) or the fake bacon (salty cardboard!).

    1. I don't know what is wrong with that state? How can you do such things? Well, I am getting angry again...

      I don't think Anne looked into the mirror before she left. :)

      I am relatively new to America so I don't know as many vegan/vegetarian things than in Germany. It would be awesome to get some recommendations. :) I definitely won't try the rubbery and salty cardboard things. :)

  9. Why would they punish someone for reporting animal cruelty??!! That is horrible and incredibly frustrating.

    1. I really don't understand this. It does not make any sense and it completely horrible and stupid!

  10. Hahaha, you're funny, Katrin! Imagine if the did actually make onions illegal! :O Can you do leek or green onions?

    I think Joaquin is very talented. I totally missed what happened at the Oscars!

    And #7, wtf?!
