The Versatile Blogger Award

Woop woop! Guess what, people? I´ve been nominated!

Thank you Of All the Books in All the Libraries for the nomination! It´s not everyday a Versatile Blogger Award flies my way ❤

I´m floored. I´m flashed. And… well, I´m just excited to tag alone. 🙂

Let´s talk about the rules ( because nothing works without rules, right?)

Rules

  • If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award

  • Thank the person who gave you this award

  • Include a link to their blog

  • Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly

  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award

  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself

 

Here goes nothing.

7 Non – Useful Fun Facts About Myself

1) I´m Bilingual. No wait. I´m multilingual ( is that even a thing?) Anyway – I speak quite a few languages. The fluent ones are: English ( Native ), German ( Because I kind of need to understand my hubs and kids ), Spanish ( I blame Mallorca ). I can also speak some French and enough of every other language to order food and drinks and ask for directions. Can you guess how much fun it is writing reviews? It´s no fun at all because I think in a few languages at the same time. The struggle is real.

2) I´m the world champion at sleeping ANYWHERE. Airports, clubs, birthday parties, park benches… You name it! What else does a girl do when she´s tired, right? LOL

 

3) A long time ago I was at a wine fest. I woke up the next morning I thought I had died and gone to Heaven because the first thing I saw was a huge branch just inches from my face. The truth was –  I had somehow managed to find a wine shed that sold wine, climbed up on the roof and took a nap there. Nevermind the fact that I wore a cowboy hat that wasn´t mine. ( yes. I had 1 – 9 wine glasses that night ) I never went to another wine fest after that.

 

4) I´m terrified of the ocean. Weird, because all my life I´ve lived near large waters but can´t go in. The ocean is almost exclusively inhabited by things designed to kill you… I can´t do it. I value my life far too much. That´s coming from someone who´s  from Florida.

 

5) I´m a professional car singer and dancer! Especially when `The Sun Always Shines On Tv`from a- ha is on the radio.

There´s no stopping me. I play the imaginary keyboard, drums and a complete           orchestra while driving! ( because it´s the only time I´m convinced I can. Haha) I´m told the sight is very dramatic.

 

6) Harry Potter is not my friend. I´ve tried. I really did. Mirjam, my book bestie, had some pretty convincing points as to WHY I should read HP. But I couldn´t get passed book #1. In fact, I had a hard time finishing the first book. I couldn´t even stay awake while watching the movies. I gave up after the 3rd try.

 

7) Right after the birth of my first child, I went in the baby room to get my kid and accidentally rolled out the wrong kid. I looked into the cribs and thought ” THAT ONE! That´s my baby.” pointing at the cute bundle and rolled her out. It wasn´t until I looked at the name tag and saw the kids name was Fransiska. Embarrassed, I rolled the kid back and found mine. ( I was 25 and all the babies somehow looked alike. I didn´t know any better).

That´s it, folks. That´s all I´ve got. Totally tough but I made it. 7 things about me you definitely can learn from.

Thank you, again, Suziey Bravo @ Of All the Books in All the Libraries for the tag. ❤ ❤

Now for my own nominees…. I´m not going to tag 10 because I know many do not appreciate being tagged.

Dear book friends, family, readers and followers,

I was nominated for the Versatile Blogging Award by the brilliant ladies over at 5171 Miles Book Blog. A huge THANK YOU, chicas! I´m honored and floored. ❤

Since this blog post / award nomination is a German one, I´m going to follow in my colleagues footsteps and offer a translation that will knock your socks off ( Literally. My german spelling is cringeworthy.)

Liebe Buch Freunde, Familie, Leser und Follower,

THANK YOU! DANKESCHÖN! MERCI! GRACIAS!

Here are the rules….

*Thank the blogger who nominated you*

*tell us 7 facts about yourself*

*nominate another blogger*

DE

Hier sind die Regeln…

* Dank den Blogger der Dich nominiert hat *

*verrate 7 Fakten über Dich*

*nominiere andere Blogger*

Ready?….

EN  Fact #1

No one calls me Morgana, except for my mom and brother and my dentist. The rest of the world calls me by my middle name, Julia.

Fact #2

My life is totally, completely color oriantated. If my food doesn´t have the right color I won´t eat it. If colors don´t match anywhere in my house I´ll go nuts ( I´m talking about clothes, flowers in my garden, etc.)

Fact #3

I speak 3 languages fluently.

Fact #4

Astrology scares the bejesus out of me. If someone guesses my zodiac sign correctly then I´ll try to avoid that person for eternity. The words ” You´re an Aquarius, right?” will have me crossing oceans at the speed of light. Same goes for card readings. I´ll scream and run away. I don´t want to know what my future holds. I´m also rediculously supersticious. Early birthday wishes are sheer torture for me, black cats on the left side of the road will make me turn my car, shoes on the table….*shudder*, no salt in the house… I just realized I´m weird AF. *hangs head*

Fact #5

My husband used to bully me in School. I was in the 8th grade and he called me fat while I was eating a chocolate croissant. We started dating when I was 19. Married him when I was 23 and now I´m 35 and we´re still married and now have 2 girls together.

Fact #6

I´m secretly competeing with the Queen of England´s garden. Don´t ask me why. Lol. I made it my mission that my garden will look a thousand times better than the one from Buckingham Palace.  ( I have a black thumb so we all know how my garden competition is coming along. But one can dream, right? )

Fact #7

I have a flipflop ossession. I have a pair for every occasion. Last time I counted I had 28 pairs….but I´m not sure. I think I´ve lost count. I´m not sure of that either. Let´s just say that I have an unhealthy flipflop addiction and I don´t want to talk about it ( runs away and shields all the flipflops)

 

Okay. I think that´s about it. 🙂 I hope you guys had fun with the useless, non interesting info of myself! Wishing each and everyone of you a wonderful day! Share the book love!

Woodie´s Book Addiction

DE Fakt #1

Keiner nennt mich Morgana, ausser meine Mutter, Bruder und mein Zahnarzt. Alle anderen nennen mich bei meinem zweit name: Julia.

Fakt #2

Mein Leben ist total Farborientiert. Wenn mein Essen nicht die richtige Farbe hat dann esse ich es nicht. Es macht mich auch wahnsinnig wenn Farben im und um mein Haus nicht passen. ( Das gilt für Kleidung, Blumen im Garten, usw.)

Fakt #3

Ich spreche 3 Sprachen. Fliessend.

Fakt #4

Ich habe angst vor Astrologie. Wenn einer mein Sternzeichen richtig errät bin ich die erste die innerlich ausflippt. Die Worte “Du bist bestimmt Wassermann, gell?” bringen mich dazu Ozeane zu überqueren. Das gleiche gilt auch für Tarot Karten lesen. Geht garnicht! Ich muss meine Zukunft nicht wissen. Ausserdem bin ich auch Abergläubig wie sau. Schwarze Katzen bringen mich dazu auf der Strasse zu drehen, frühzeitige Geburtstags Glückwünsche sind der reinste horror…genauso wie Schuhe auf´m Tisch und kein Salz im Haus haben. Ich habe eben realisiert das ich verdammt seltsam bin. * hangs head*

Fakt #5

Mein Eheman hat mich früher in der Schule gemobbt. Als ich in der 8ten Klasse war nannte er mich Fett weil ich immer ein Schoko Croissant gegessen habe. Mit 19 sind wir das erste Mal ausgegangen. Mit 23 habe ich ihn geheiratet und jetzt bin ich 35 und wir sind immer noch zusammen und haben auch 2 kinder. ( Das war eine sehr kurze und knappe, eher unromantische fakt. Es war tatsächlich dramatischer und VIEL romantischer damals.)

Fakt #6

Ich führe momentan ein Garten-Wettkampf mit der Queen of England. Ihre Majestät weiss davon nichts aber ich habe es zur meiner Mission gemacht einen schöneren Garten zu haben wie die von Buckingham Palast. Da ich aber einen schwarzen Daumen habe wisst ihr bestimmt wie erfolgreich ich mit meiner Mission bin.

Fakt #7

Ich bin eine leidenschaftliche Flipflop sammlerin. Momentan habe ich, glaub ich, 28 Paar? Bin mir nicht ganz sicher. Es sind so viele, da verliert man leicht den überblick. Ach, * abwink * wen probiere ich hier zu verarschen? Ich habe bestimmt mehr und ich weiss es nicht aber ich möchte ungern über meine Flipflop sucht reden ( schnell wegrenn und flipflops schützen)

So, meine Lieben. Das war´s von meiner Seite. Ich hoffe ihr hattet Spass mit meine doch-so-nutzlosen-fakten. Ich hoffe ihr habt einen schönen Tag! Mucho Liebe….<3

(KLEINER HINWEIS- Ich entschuldige alle Rechtschreibfehler. Deutsch ist nicht meine Muttersprache. Aber ich bin heil froh das ich es halbwegs reden kann..:-) )
