Let´s see if I can answer Suziey´s questions without blowing it completely. Ready? Ready. Okay, everyone. Time to take a deep breath. This is gonna be fun (fingers crossed)


 

1. Would you rather travel back in time and alter history or go to the future and find out how and when you die and why?

I´d definitely go back in time and change a few things. I´m not one to regret my choices but I would love to go back and reword arguments / try not to hurt people as much as I´ve done. I´m a very proud person and can lash out when stuck in an ugly situation.

 

2. What songs would the soundtrack of your life consist of? 

When I was a teenager I used to say “All by myself” was the complete soundtrack of my life ( yes. I was a dramatic little turd ). Now, I have a colorful list of everything. Each of these songs represents me. My life.

  • Bad Ideas from Alle Farben ( This is my life anthem )
  • The Middle – Jimmy Eat World ( So my life )
  • That´s Not My Name – The Ting Tings ( Because many people call me by nicknames and to this day, have no clue what my name is. The guessing games at parties were and still are always fun. )

 

3. If you woke up tomorrow in somebody else’s body, who would you want to be and what would you do?

Uuhm… * scratching head * Not sure. I´ve never thought about this before. Thinking about it now- I wouldn´t want to go through a body swap. I have enough on my plate as it is- Changing bodies would only bring more problems and I´m too exhausted to deal with new issues. But if a body swap was to take place then I sure as hell hope it´s with someone who has a nice fluffy plush bed.

 

3. When was the last time you binge watched a show and what was it?

I´m currently binge watching Friends.. for the hundredth time. And before that it was Game Of Thrones. Next up- Game of Thrones ( mainly because I think husbutt still doesn´t understand it. HAHAHA )

 

4. What is the best compliment you’ve ever gotten?

From my girls- “You´re the best Mommy.” That´s all I need. Although I´m their only mom they still feel the need to point out that I´m their best. Lol. Like they have much to compare with. 🙂 Still warms my heart. ❤

 

5. Have you met any celebrities before, and if so, who?

Ooooh, probably. But I belong to those people who´re too ignorant to notice a celeb even if he/she were tied to my back.

 

6. What books would you recommend to someone that says they hate reading?

I wouldn´t recommend books to those people. Lol. In fact… I´d do a convo swap, pull someone else ( who´s just walking by ) into the convo and say “Oops. Won´t you look at the time. I gotta head out.” And elegantly make a run for it.

 

7. Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet?

Most of Jane Austen’s Heroes.

 

8. What is your favorite word?

Fuck.

 

9. If you had a boat, what bookish name would you give it? 

Bookish name as in title or character name? A title I´d give my boat would be `The Mighty Storm` which is from The Mighty Storm by Samantha Towle. And a character name for my boat would be Pigeon from `A Beautiful Disaster`by Jamie McGuire

 

10. What would be the title of your autobiography?

Nap Time. Give Me 5 More Minutes. Leave Me Alone. I Survived. Not My Fault. It´s All His Fault. I Wasn´t Paid Enough.

 

11. What is the one question that you absolutely hate being asked?

Omg. This question is made for me! I get asked the same stupid thing every-damn-time by people who I believe are fairly clever but act like total idiots when then ask that ONE question.

“Are you wearing contact lenses?”

Hmm… Would it be wise to wear contact lenses when I wear glasses? Have you seen how thick my glasses are? I mean- I wear them all the damn long time. Night and day. You´ve never seen me without them because if I don´t wear them I couldn´t see you. I´d be talking to a tree instead of you! OH! You´re talking about my eye color? So, gray can´t be natural? Is that what you´re saying?

That´s how the convo inside my head goes. Instead, the convo goes more like this:

Person:  ( squinting eyes and coming close to my face) Are you wearing contact lenses?

Me: ( having the convo above with myself) No. I have these babies on for a real reason. Why?

Person: I don´t know. Your eye color..Is that gray? ( sounding like I just escaped the Zoo )

Me: ( wanting to run away ) Yeah. I know. Sorry. They´re real.

Okay. Don´t get me wrong. It should be flattering when someone asks me if I´m wearing contact lenses. And sometimes it is ( depending on the person, of course ) but most just look at me ( when they´re close enough ) like I´m some abnormal species. It pisses me off. To tell you the truth… My eyes are blue with just a gray-ish shade that have a weird snowflake pattern. That´s all. Not my fault. Go to my mom and complain. She´ll give you a full blown run down on where I got the color from and who MIGHT get it in the future. Meeh. I´m just fed up. Ignore me. Lol.

Thank you, again, Suziey from Of All the Books in All the Libraries ❤

Mug Monday & Special Thanks

Hello, and welcome to another awful, beastly hot Mug Monday!

 

As you probably already know, I won´t be exhausting you today with snippets from my personal life ( book related or not ). Just…. relax and take a deep breath…. No Powerpoint presentation today.

 

Instead, I thought of taking some time to give some of you some virtual hugs, kisses, chocolates and cake! Why?

 

Because you are awesome!

 

Well, you´re awesome online… So, I guess you´re just as awesome in person.

To all who´ve gone out of their way to read my posts and leave likes and comments…

THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart ❤

To all the new bloggers who, by some miracle, found me in the never-ending sea of blogs…. THANK YOU. ❤

I can´t begin to show my appreciation for your patience with my nonsense, my misspellings and my sentence structure. I bow before you for not telling me to go straight to hell!

Time for some finger-pointing!

 

I know it isn´t necessarily nice to point fingers at someone but in this case, it´s more than appropriate. One simply cannot say thank you and leave it at that.

( Please forgive me when you belong to this list but aren´t mentioned. I tried reviving all the blog names but WordPress doesn´t like me sometimes…. So, it´s not my fault. I still love you.)

THANK YOU

Hi, and welcome to whatever it is I´m doing. If you find my blog half as amusing or informative as the mentioned blog babes above then you´ll have a wonderful time here. ❤ Feel free to free your mind, discuss anything you heart desires and… well, let´s just say I´m up for great chats and lovely debates! ❤ ❤

Tags are welcomed. Shares and likes never frowned upon. <3.

I´m SOOO looking forward to dive into the treasures you´ve been posting on your blog and will gladly share fab posts ( not on FB, though. I´ve left that cult. )

For all who I´ve forgotten….

Just give me a nudge in about a month or so as a reminder to thank you as well.

( because you all are dealing with a 30+ year old here. Be kind to the fragile brain )

 

And now…. for the Mug Monday…. Can I have a drum roll, please?

mug monday appreciation

Very creative, huh? I think I´ve outdone myself with this one ( insert sarcasm ). Not really. It´s just too hot to drink hot chocolate and my brain can´t come up with anything fancy at the moment due to the world living in Satans butt crack.

 

I guess that´s it for this week, my dear Padawan-ish book people!

Again…. THANK YOU. ❤
