100 questions no one ever asks. {Part I}

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are all having a good start into the new week! I found these "100 questions no one ever asks" somewhere around the internet and I will just answer them because I want you to answer them as well. 

This has nothing to do with the questions but it's true. 

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Open. The cats like to sleep in there. 

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?
I usually bring my own because the hotels don't have cruelty-free stuff. 

3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

4. Have you stolen a street sign before?
Not a street sign. My friends and I found some kind of sign on the side of the road and we took it. 

5. Do you like to use post-it notes?

6. Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?

7. Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?
Big bear. 

8. Do you have freckles?
No, I do not. (Why would nobody ask this question? I don't get it.)

9. Do you always smile for pictures?
I pretty much never smile for pictures. 

10. What is your biggest pet peeve?
It drives me insane when people spit on the ground. 

11. Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
I do. 

12. Have you peed in the woods?
I did. I went on a backpacking trip so I did not really have a choice. 

13. Have you ever pooped in the woods?
In fact, I don't think I did. Weird. 

14. Do you ever dance even if there's no music playing?
Yes, I do. 

15. Do you chew your pens and pencils?
I think I did when I was younger but not anymore. 

16. How many people have you slept with this week?
I think this is actually one of the rare questions that you do not ask. At least not in public.  

17. What size is your bed?
140 x 200 cm. 

18. What is your song of the week?
"Uptown funk" because it cheers me up. And "Irish Blood, English Heart" by Morrissey because it's always good to listen to that one.

  1. I am impressed with your multi-language skills (and jealous). Some of those questions are regularly asked (favorite food). Now, I'm going to google Brötchen.

    1. Oh, don't be impressed. The only languages I feel confident about are German and English. I really want to improve my French and Italian though and there are so many other languages I want to learn! Brötchen are so delicious. I usually eat one every morning. I guess you could say buns or bread rolls in English but it's just not the same! :)

  2. wow, awesome post :)
    enjoyed reading this....

  3. "1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
    Open. The cats like to sleep in there."

    LOL, I love it!!! Same with our cats!! And the picture with the rooster on the shoulder? Totally random and awesome! <3 - www.domesticgeekgirl.com

    1. Haha, I am glad I am not the only one who leaves the doors open for the cats. :) I mean, they are comfy in there and I want them to be happy! Glad you like the picture too, I saw it and loved it!

  4. I love Icelandic, its so beautiful but I imagine would be harder for a native German speaker because there is so much of the þ 'th or gh' sound. I miss Iceland now!

    Loving all the Dr Suess quotes as well!

    1. The quotes are so good!
      I got an icelandic course with books and cd's for Christmas and it seems really hard but I want to learn it. :)

  5. It's weird, but I can't sleep with the closet doors open! I have to have them shut tight! Not sure why.

    1. That's interesting. I wonder why that is! I don't like it when the bedroom door is closed. Then I cannot sleep very well. :)

  6. We have some things in common! My answers will be on my blog on Wednesday

    1. Oh yay! I cannot wait to read them! You rock! So cool that we have so much in common!

  7. Ha! Napoleon Dynamite! I had completely forgotten about that movie until it came on the other day. I made Lexie watch it with me and she was like, This movie is weird. I don't get it. :) I had forgotten how much I used to love it!

    1. Haha, so cool that you like that movie as well! I guess you either love it or don't care at all. :) I have it on dvd and watch it regularly. It always makes me laugh so much!

  8. Oh Brötchen, I like all types of German bread any time of the day! My current go-to breakfast is avocado on toast with a drizzle of olive oil, yummy!

    I'm also a lazy person and should really start learning Icelandic again! I really enjoyed it :)

    1. I think I love German bread way too much. I could eat it for every single meal. :) I need to try the avocado idea! I think I only ever tried avocado once in my life. I am weird I guess.

      I am sure your Icelandic is so good already! :) It's such an interesting language and I want to learn some before I travel there. Hope that will happen at some point soon!

  9. ooo interesting! (fyi I pee in the woods all the time, I have a fobia of those awful porta loos when we go away to shows. But I never poop. In fact my body shuts down in that area and I wait til I get to a proper loo haha!!)

    1. eww, those are so horrible. I always try to avoid those portable toilets, they are disgusting! It's definitely preferable to pee in the woods because it is not as filthy!

  10. I'll just answer a few:
    #10 - I hate that too
    #37 - yep, that's me especially on winter days, cold days definitely makes me want to stay indoors and do nothing
    #39 - mine's rabbit/bunny - it depends on the year you are born, I think.
    #43 - yep, me too.

    some odd questions but they're intriguing. hope you have a lovely day.

    1. #10. Isn't it disgusting. I always let people know what I think about it when I have to witness it.
      #37. Being lazy is definitely a nice thing to do.
      #39. I guess I should look mine up. I want to be a bunny.
      Thank you for answering some questions as well! Have a lovely weekend!
