Well, I actually shouldn't be doing it, since I absolutely shouldn't have the time for it, but it seemed like fun, so I've stolen the idea from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] silvan_lady...

Ask me for my top five in any category, and I'll try to figure out answers.

Have fun and go wild, folks! :D

Once again stolen from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] silvan_lady

Since I'm currently back at my parent's the answers could obviously differ if I had a flat of my own these days ;)

1.What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now?
In my tub? Nothing at the moment ;) On the tub? Some coconut-thingie noone ever uses.

2. Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator?
Nope.

3. Is there anything moldy in your refrigerator?
Definitely not! *shudders*

4. Are there any dirty dishes in your sink?
No, the dishwasher is running :D

5. What would you change about your living room?
If it were mine it would have a bigger TV.

6. Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty?
They should be mostly clean by now, I'd say.

7. Do you have a can of mushrooms in your pantry?
Nope, no mushrooms around.

8. White or wheat bread?
My self-made white bread <3

9. What is on top of your refrigerator?
A roasting pan, a bread baking mould, some baking tins.

10. What color is your sofa?
My parent's sofas are white, my lovely sofa boxed in the basement waiting for the day my job finally pais steadily again and I move into a new flat is a wonderfully perfect pink.

11. What color or design is on your shower curtain?
It's a glass door, so no color, no design, no curtain ;) (thankfully - I HATE shower curtains)

12. How many plants are in your home?
From my place at the dinner table I can currently see 11, and there are quite a few more around.

13. How many candles are in your home?
Too many to count.

14. Is your bed made right now?
Partly... I fluffed the pillows after my nap, but the blanket is still bunched up.

15. If you have a coffee pot, what color is it?
See-trough aka. made of glass (well, strictly speaking the upper half is see-through, the lower half is black since there's coffee waiting for me)

16. Electric or standard can opener?
I guess there's a standard one buried somewhere in a drawer.

27. Comet or Soft Scrub?
Whatever that may be, we don't have it :D

28. Is your closet organized?
It is at the moment.... ask me again in a month and things might look very different.

29. What color is the flashlight that you use the most?
I hardly ever use a flashlight. But if I needed one right now I'd use my phone - so, black.

30. What kinds of things are in your junk drawer?
Junk! :) Although I don't really have a junk drawer. I have a junk box made of cardboard, I have another junk box under my bed which is made out of plastic and then there's my desk which is a veritable assembly point for any stray junk that comes my way...

31. Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home?
Glass. I don't think I ever drink out of plastic when at home.

32. Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now?
Nope. But that might be a nice idea for tomorrow...

33. If you have a garage, is it cluttered?
My parent's garage is more a carport and therefore not really suited to store a lot of things, but it's still pretty full with bikes, a few (empty) boxes, an old rabbit cage-top, dupsters, and the like. Oh, and a car, of course ;)

34. Curtains or blinds?
Both - every window has curtains, in the bath we have additional wooden blinds, my brother's room has a window with an additional blind made of linen AND there are shutters on the balcony doors.

35. How many pillows do you sleep with?
Two or three, depending if you count a "side-sleeper" pillow as well. (And strictly speaking there are at least 3 smaller cushions thrown in - a heart, a flower and a cloud :D )

36. Do you sleep with any lights on at night?
No, never seen the sense in that.

37. How many ceiling fans are in your home?
None

38. How often do you vacuum?
Once a week, usually. But in a good week I get somebody else to do it for me ;)

39. Standard toothbrush or electric?
Standard.

40. What color is your toothbrush?
Blue and white

41. Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch?
Yes.

42. What is in your oven right now?
The things that should be in there? ;) A shelf and a baking plate.

43. Is your microwave clean or dirty?
We don't have a microwave.

44. Is there anything under your bed?
Apart from dust? There are four plastic boxes that take up most of the space. And those are filled with CD's, my "creative" stuff (like pens, stamps, glitter, stickers, etc.), tons of paper of every size and color, my scripts and notes from university and one for random junk like old phones.

45. Chore you hate doing the most?
Dusting. And vacuuming. (But I LOVE ironing, strange creature that I am)

46. What retro items are in your home?
Depends what you're counting as retro. But there's a (still working) PC from the middle of the 90s, a clock that my dad built way before I was born,...

47. Do you have a separate room that you use as an office?
My dad has one, I could use it too, so yeah.

48. If you have a yard, who mows it?
Mum or dad or both.

49. Is there anything on your kitchen floor right now?
Wood. A small carpet.

50. How many mirrors are in your home?
Hm... 5, I think.

51. Do you have any hidden emergency money around your home?
You could count the money in my amazing golf-ball shaped sheep piggybank as emergency money - although I doubt I'd get far with the 20 or so Euros I have in there :)

52. What color are your walls?
The ones that are not wood are white.

53. Which rooms in your house have wallpaper?
None.

54. Do you have a peephole in your front door?
No, but there's a window in the door.

55. Do you keep any kind of protection weapons in your home?
:D You could probably count the rolling pin or the axe we use for the fire-wood as protection weapons, but no. You'd need a weapons permit to have something like that at home around here.

56. What does your home smell like right now?
Mostly fresh air because nearly all windows and doors are open right now.

57. Fave candle scent?
I'm not a big fan of scented candles, but if I had to use them I'd pick vanilla.

58. What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now?
No pickles in there at the moment as far as I know.

59. Who are in the pictures you displayed?
In the house - myself and my brother (drawn by my mum). In my room: Myself (again drawn by my mum), Elijah Wood (long story that somehow resulted in my former best friend tacking a poster of him above my bed... and since I'm a nostalgic being, I can't bring myself to remove it), a LotR-calender (outdated and showing some Rivendell scenes including Elrond and Arwen), Orlando in KoH (which reminds me -I really, really need to look where the movie poster got to, I want to tack it up again... it's the same color-scheme as my curtains :D ).

60. What color is your favorite bible?
I have many favorite books, but a bible is not one of them.

61. Do you have plenty of cabinet space in your kitchen?
Yes, although it's always too little anyway.

62. Ever been on your roof?
Yes.

62. Do you own a stereo?
Yes.

63. How many TVs do you have?
Me personally? None. In the house - currently 2 that are used. A few older ones are in storage for whenever we have a TV emergency ;)

64. How many house phones?
Two.

65. Do you have a housekeeper?
No. (Although my mum would say she's our housekeeper ;) )

66. What style do you decorate in?
I'd decorate colorful and comfy.

67. Do you like solid colors in furniture or prints?
Definitely solid. There is no way I'd get anything in print (particularly animal print *shudders*).

68. Is there a smoke detector in your home?
Nope.

68. In case of fire, what are the items you would grab if you only could make one quick trip?
Phone (definitely!), my handbag (which should get me through the first few days), if possible my tablet or laptop (or both).

69. Do you know how to work your electrical box?
In theory.

70. What temperature in your home is most comfortable to you?
somewhere around 24°C ... I need it warm. The warmer the better for me. And everything below 24 counts as cold in my freezing world.

nicked from the gorgeous [livejournal.com profile] silvan_lady

1) The phone rings. Who do you want it to be?
Himself, I guess... but since he's asleep, I highly doubt a call will be coming ;)

2) At the grocery store, do you return your cart?
Sure! Worked long enough in retail to hate people who leave them wherever they want...

3) If you had a choice would you re-kiss the last person you kissed?
Yes

4) Do you take compliments well?
Not really, no. As gracefully as possible, but I usually doubt their sincerity...

5) Do you play Sudoku?
I do - mostly in boring lectures, but then I play obsessively :D

6) If abandoned alone in the wilderness would you survive?
Depends on the kind of wilderness, I'd say. If there's wood and water around I should do pretty well. If it's just endless days of nothing in all directions I might have a problem :D (And if there are snakes around, I'm out of there!!!!)

7) Do you prefer hot pockets or pizza rolls?
What or WHAT???? (I love plain normal pizza, if that's an option...)

8) If your house was on fire, what would be the first thing you would grab?
Phone probably... maybe my handbag at the same time (I do have two hands after all :D ) - with both of these things I should be fine for the foreseeable future.

9) Who was the last person you slept in a bed with?
Himself

10) Who do you text the most?
Himself and my dear friend P.

11)What is your favorite Children's book?
There are quite a few to chose from. I particularly liked "Pippi Longstocking" by Astrid Lindgren (as a red-head myself I just HAD to love her, right?!), and I loved the "St. Clare's"-series by Enid Blyton (and I'm completely blown away by the English title of the books... I know them as "Hanni & Nanni" and as it turns out, even their names are different in the English original *shock*)

12) What color are your eyes?
depending on lighting and mood they vary from green to blue - usually with a dash of grey and a bit of brown thrown in

13) If you could do it over again, start from scratch, would you?
Hm... tempting... but ultimately? No. There's too much good I'd give up to try and alter the bad.

14) Any secret admirers?
I very much doubt it.

15) When was the last time you were at Olive Garden?
We don't have Olive Garden here, so never?!

16) Favorite ex?
No favourite ex. Just a much hated one.

17) Where's the furthest place you traveled?
It's either Turkey or Britain - I don't know what's actually further away since flight time was about the same.

18) Do you like mustard?
No, no, no! Definitely not!

19) Do you prefer to sleep or eat?
That's a trick question, right?! RIGHT? (Can I eat AND sleep? Please!)

20) Do you look like your mom or dad?
Good question... I have no idea. I've got some things from both, but I don't think I actually look like them that much.

21) How long does it take you in the shower?
Depends. I can be done in 5 minutes, but I can stay in there forever and ever as well.

22) What movie do you want to see right now?
Right now? Nothing. Generally speaking? I want to re-watch the Rocky Horror Picture Show sometime soon (don't ask...)

23) What did you do for New Year's Eve?
Ummmmmm... good question. I spent it with Himself, that I know, but I actually can't remember what we did exactly... We were either at my or his parents at midnight. (And no, there was no alcohol involved in my memory loss :D )

24) Do you think The Grudge was crappy?
The WHAT? But then - with that title it probably was! :D

25) Do you own a camera phone?
Yes

26) Was your mom a cheerleader?
Definitely not! (No cheerleaders around here - at least not at the time when my mum was a teen)

27) What's the last letter of your middle name?
A

28) How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
I try to get 8 hours, but I usually don't.

29) Do you like care bears?
I own a cosy Care Bear onesie, but other than that I really have no opinion on them :)

30) What do you buy at the Movies?
I used to get popcorn, but since I'm not allowed anymore: nothing.

31) Do you know how to play poker?
Theoretically... I guess. Not well enough to actually play without help is the more honest answer.

32) Do you wear your seatbelt?
Always! Even for the shortest of ways!

33) What do you wear to sleep?
Generally speaking: panties and some sort of T-shirt or tank-top. Sometimes more, sometimes less ;)

34) Anything big ever happen in your town?
Nah, not really...

36) Do you dye your hair?
I pay people to do it :D

37) Do you like Liver and Onions?
NO! NO! NOOOOOOOO! *shudders*

38) Have you ever been in love?
Yes

39) Do you like funny or serious people better?
Depends on the situation and mood - I appreciate a person combining both traits the most.

40) Have you ever been to L.A?
Sadly, no.

41) What is on your mind right now?
These questions. My desire to go to sleep soon. Random stray thoughts.

42) What's your favorite song at the moment?
"Thinking out loud" by Ed Sheeran

43) Do you hate chocolate?
HATE chocolate? Who hates chocolate?! What kind of monster HATES chocolate??????!

44) What do you and your parents fight about the most
Random things like my choice of job and "when will you finally graduate?!" - nothing to worry about :D

45) Are you a gullible person?
Nope.

46) Do you need a boyfriend/girlfriend to be happy?
I don't NEED one, but it's nice to have one :D

47) If you could have any job what would it be?
Something in the movies - director, film script writer, a combination of both? (see: Peter Jackson - all around genius ;) )

48) Are you easy to get along with?
Depends. If you can stand my initial shyness and my awkward periods, I'm pretty easy to handle.

49) What is your favorite time of day?
Night

50) Are you generally a happy person?
I try to be. It's hard sometimes, but I try.

You Should Write Literary Fiction

You are very well read and quite intellectual. You are picky about what you read and always appreciate craftsmanship.
You probably already fancy yourself a bit of a writer, and you know that writing gets better with practice. You exercise that muscle.

You think that literature should challenge us and open us up to the world. You like books that have something important to say.
You appreciate nuanced writing, even if the subtlety is difficult to pick up on. You enjoy re-reading books to get to know them a bit more.

Seems like we've found the reason for that maddening pain in my head... I've been at the dentist today and honestly people - I screamed! I've never ever in my life screamed in any doctor's practice but when he touched my wisdom tooth with the barest of touches I thought I'd die because of the pain.
So I'm going to get this fucking wisdom tooth extracted on Tuesday. I'M SO SCARED!

(Has anybody of you endured that, yet? Is it very painful? - Please tell me, I'm a sucker at things involving a dentist, an injection and the extraction of anything I used to bite on... *shudders*)


And to make my day any better - I've found a Meme *happy*

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. (Some I know too well. You know who you are.) I read your journals, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so..who listens in rapture to the love-music of she-turnips." I might feel compelled to mock your musical taste, but I'll certainly remember you.

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear."

Good news for everybody out there who's interested in an update of my middle earth fic "Life is a Journey" - today I managed to transcribe 3359 words of Chapter 31... there's still a lot to come but hey... I'm working at it ;) So... please stay patient tuned!

And a meme stolen from [profile] dragongirl16:

According to The Big Read, the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books on their list.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)

Questions
You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:
1. one weapon.
2. one song blasting on the speakers.
3. one famous person to fight alongside you.

* Weapon can be real or fictional; you may assume endless ammo if applicable. Person can be real or fictional.

Answers:

1.)
assuming that I could really wield the weapon of my choice (and that they would actually work on zombies) and depending on whom I had with me I'd take in case a) a nice longbow or b) a sword - I think it would come in pretty handy to have one of us wielding a weapon with quite a long range and one of us a weapon for shorter distances so we could keep those zombies at bay ;)

2.) as it is my little world I'd definitely experience that whole attack on a Monday (Mondays are just the worst of all, aren't they?!) - so the song of my choice would definitely be "I don't like Mondays" by the Boomtown Rats... * I wanna shoot the whole day down *

3.) as hinted above there's a neck-to-neck-race for the person next to me - I'd either choose a) Aragorn or b) Legolas, both of "Lord of the Rings" ... what more could a girl wish for than a very good-looking experienced fighter? ;)
