Meet me on Monday (5)

This meme is hosted by Java @ Never Growing Old

1. What are you wearing right now?

A grey high-waisted Marlene trouser and a black pullover - my own very 30ies outfit for work. (I just came home.)

2. Do you have any freckles?

Yes, a few. It's not enough to call me freckled.. :")

3. What is your favorite Lifesaver flavor?

Actually - I did not know them.
I had to look after them in www. A whole universe to explore! :")

4. What is the last movie you saw in the theater?

THE KING'S SPEECH - and I loved it. (I am a fan of Helena Bonham Carter!! She is marvellous!!)

And, boy! Was I happy to hear one of my alltime favourite melodies in it: Symphony No# 7 by Beethoven (well, actually it's the Allegretto!) !! I had this stuck in my head for days!

5. Would you rather live without tv or without music?

Rather without tv (if it's okay to watch DVDs and films in cinema futhermore.)

Cat Thursday

This meme is hosted by The True Book Adicct

Actually I have posted my cat picture of the week here. (yeah - Mina again..)

But I want to post this too - because this cat made me laugh so many times and I want to share that: (LOOK AT HIS PAWS!!! ISN'T HE THE CUTEST GUY?? AGAIN: HAVE YOU NOTICED HIS PAWS??)

Maybe I am a bit overtop - you know: today I saw two hares - and they were bigger than my cats..

I can't help it: I love Maru. :")

Have a lovely week! And our kindest redards to you and all your feline friends! ;")

Lyrical Tuesday (3)

This meme is hosted @ Universe in Words

This is my song for this week:


Again a song that I love. I like Johnny Cash very much and yesterday I re-watched the film with John Wayne and awesome Dean Martin (yes, some day I am going to post one of his songs - you can be sure of that.) - so it comes naturally to me that today I am posting this song - though it is not featured in the film. (which I will review at my film blog - of course..)

My two parts of the lyrics:

All your little ones have grown and we've reaped what we have sown.

I believe in karma. I believe that every harm we do, we're going to reap - so of course this part appeals to me.

So mothers teach your sons to not live by a gun

Well, what shall I say? Any explanation needed?

No lyrics in this - but listen to this brilliant piece of music:

And: yes, I think I am going to feature both clips on my film post.. ;")

Meet me on Monday (4)

This meme is hosted by Java @ Never Growing Old

1. Did you get any Valentine's Gifts?

To anyone who ever wanted to know - because today this might be fitting: The Frl. in my name is short for "Fräulein" = Miss. ;") And yes: I am single - but I want to stay a miss - only man who would be able to make me consider marriage was Vincent Price.. and obviously he is not on this valentines wheel:

2. What is your favorite topping on something toasted?

Recently I like strawberry jam..

3. Do you pick out your outfit the night before?

Yes - when I am working the next day. No - when I have a day off or weekend.

4. What food item do you absolutely despise?
Several. I do not like spaghetti, except for fish with scales I do not eat sea food and eggs outside of pastries are not very alluring to me. And only in an emergency I would consider to eat bananas.

I am a food bitch. :")

5. Righty or lefty?

I am right-handed. But I try to do things with my left hand - and it works more and more. :")

Happy Valentines Day to all of you!! Have a great week!!

Sneak a peek in my armoire.. ;")

I spent a little money on this sweet stuff:

For I already own a black one, a white one and one with a leo print I wanted something red.. ;")

Well, that's it..

Lyrical Tuesday (2)

This is a meme hosted by Universe in Words

- to whom I promised that I would participate last tuesday. I didn't. I am sorry!! I really am, because this is such an awesome meme! It makes you really LISTENING to songs.

So: please forgive me!

Here are the rules again:
  • Think of a song that has inspired you
  • Choose two sentences/parts/words/etc from the lyrics
  • Explain what they mean to you
  • Post a link to the song
  • Be nice and visit other people on the list!

This is my song for this week:

HERE COMES THE SUN. by George Harrison

George Harrison wrote that song and sung it. It was first released on the ABBEY ROAD album of The Beatles. (I am a fan of them.)

If you are able to play this song on your guitar: You certainly are no beginner! This is hard stuff!!

And it sounds so wonderful!

I have several songs which I want to be played when I am gone. This is one of them.

It is very optimistic and right now it does fit the weather here. ;")

My two parts:

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter

Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

It indeed feels like years since it's been here! But I think this songs also fits when I (or you) am (are) in a depressive mood.

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun

and I say it's all right

I love this "I say it's all right" part! Sometimes I have a feeling like nothing is "all right" - like every one was complaining and arrogating something - so this is giving me a "Relax. Leave it. IT IS ALL RIGHT." feeling. Sometimes I am missing that feeling.

Isn't this song sheer beauty?
