first of all: sorry that there is not much interesting going on on this little blog right now. I am a bit busy so I don't find much time for blogging. I guess you all know how that is. But things will hopefully get better soon so be prepared for some more posts and more topics to blog about.
Pretty good quote, I would say.
I recently received the Liebster award from bevchen and I feel so honored! Thank you so much! You can find her blog Confuzzledom here. She had a couple of questions for her nominees so I want to answer them now.
1. If you could change your first name to anything at all, what would you pick?
I actually like my first name but I would probably choose something exotic like Phoebe Buffay did and name myself Princess Consuela Banana Hammock.
2. Where were you born?
In a tiny city in the south west of Germany, in a state called Rhineland-Palatinate. Pretty close to the oldest city in Germany, Trier.
3. What is your favourite quote?
Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R. Magel
Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. ~Gandhi
“So many books, so little time.” , “Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” , “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”, “If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” , “When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”
4. Tea, coffee or hot chocolate?
All of them, please. I mostly drink tea. Lots of tea. But I also like a cup of coffee once in a while. And I prefer my hot chocolate with almond milk. Vegan, please.
My favorite drink right now is Irish Breakfast Tea with coconut milk.
5. If you could own any animal, what would it be?
I do have two cats and two bunnies but I think a dog would be a great addition. :) I would also love to offer my home to another cat. And if I would live in my dream castle, then I would like to give some donkeys and cows and pigs and chicken etc. a new home.
6. Why did you start blogging?
Hmm, good question. I started reading blogs before I started my own blog and I have always been fascinated by the blogging world. Then I moved to America and I guess I just wanted to share my thoughts with some people. I am glad I started my blog. I have met so many wonderful people, made some great friends and I really don't want to miss this!
7. Who is your favourite author?
I guess it is not a secret that I love crime novels and I wrote a post about my favorite crime writers here.
8. What is your favourite flavour of crisps (chips for the Americans)?
Salt and vinegar.
9. Apart from blogs, which website do you spend most time on?
I don't find as much time as I want to right now but I really love goodreads. It is a great way to discover new books. I also love cuteoverload - lots of animal pictures. It's probably not a website but I do love Instagram a lot.
10. Do you have a talent? If so, what?
I don't know if it is a talent but I love to paint and draw and do all things crafty. And I can make my thumbs move in a weird way.
11. What was the last song you listened to?
"I'm alone but that's okay" by Ron Sexsmith. The song from the great show "Family Tree".
Thanks again for nominating me, it really is an honor! I know, I was supposed to provide 11 random facts about myself and I promise to do that in a later post. Also, I would love to read your answers to the questions!
Have a lovely day!
