Tuesday's Tickle Treatment #2

This week's Tickle Treatment comes from Avenue Q - the Tony-Award-winning musical, starring on-stage-played puppets. Similarities with certain SesameStreet characters are not accidental, though these puppets are in their twenties and thirties and have to deal with adult problems.

Some of you might know this video, but I think it's always good for a laugh, even if you've seen it before:

Have fun guys and girls!

What the f...?!? #3

This weeks WTF is about drinking. Yes folks, after the little test I did yesterday (watch the last post) and the experiences on my birthday-party (people still tell me how funny it was that I kept clingin to the microphone while I was nearly falling from the barstool), I officially surrender. I hereby declare October the official month of booze and drunkness!!! Everybody is welcome to join me. Please feel free to comment on your experiences!

And as I ain't very creative today, and moreover in desperate need of a drink, I just give you something to feast your eyes on and get in the right mood ...

Have fun folks, I need to go to the supermarket, the kitchen needs cleaning and I'm running out of beer.

I should've known ...

I did this little fun-test, and see what happened ...

You Are

A Drunk Pumpkin Face

You would make a good pumpkin martini.

Is anybody really surprised?! AAAw, darn it, I'll go and have a glass of wine ...

Things YOU wanna know ...

1.) What did I buy at amazon.com for 100$? As I am a generous person, I decided to split the pot and buy something for the boys (from now on the term I'll use for my roommates) as well.

For me I got:

- Douglas Adams, "The deeper meaning of liff"
I definitely will write a post about that one, cause this book IS wonderful!

- Robert Shea, "The Illuminatus Trilogy"
Nothing for the faint hearted, not even comparable to Dan Brown's kindergarden-version of the Illuminati-story. Disturbing and spell-binding.

For boy#1 who also is #1 in my heart (sounds cheesy doesn't it):

- Alex Ross, "Earth X"
A graphic novel - yes folks, I lost my heart to one of those nerds ;)

For boy#2

- All Pro football 2K8 for XBOX 360

2.) Still looking for the right Halloween-costume? Why not become a god/godess? Your divine appearance will be enough to make any kind of maquerade unnecessary. The Bald Guy offers you this chance of your lifetime, and he means it! If you already have a costume, go there either because you want to experience the good and powerful feeling of being a god/godess, or just because the guy is really funny ;)
P.S.: If you don't want to become a god, but still need a costume, I recommend the Urban Camouflage

3.) Participating in blog-contests is not only good for strengthening the blogging community, in most cases it's good for your wallet as well. Sometimes you have to simply backlink, sometimes you have to write a post. But for Lynn's 25 Things for Charity contest, you will really have to work! I think this is a wonderful way to do something for charity, so please join in!
uhm, btw, no worries, you can win a prize, too, if this is what it needs to get you going *shakehead*

Enough for today folks, enjoy your weekend!

Thursday Thirteen #2

Thirteen Things about Juliadamus

I'm a dedicated book-lover! I've always been and I always will be. In this weeks TT I will show you my favourite books/authors. Some of them influenced me as a child, others are current reading. I hope you enjoy the list, and maybe I can inspire you to read one or two of theese books ;)

13. "The Complete Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales" by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm

I guess everybody knows this one, and for those who don't: I'm sorry folks, but Snow White is not an original Disney-product ;)

12. "The Neverending Story" and "Momo" by Michael Ende

Both stories are classics of childhood-literature, at least in Germany.

11. "Mister God, This is Anna" by Fynn

This book not only provides answers to the big questions in life, it also provides the questions!

10. "Animal Farm" and "1984" by George Orwell

Big Brother is watching you!

9. "The Wizard of Oz" by L.F. Baum

We're off, to see the wizard! The wonderful wizard of Oz!

8. "Look Back, Mrs. Lot" and all the other books by Ephraim Kishon

Kishon writes short stories about the life of an jewish author married to "the best wife in the world". His wit and sarcasm, make me laugh out loud everytime!

7. "The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4" by Sue Townsend

Simply hilarious, english humor. And so true!

6. "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

The book is subtitled "The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch". It's the mixture between Pratchetts imaginative writing and the spell-binding power of Gaiman's plot.

5. "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll

I looovee the Mad Hatter!

4. "American Gods" by Neil Gaiman

The final showdown between the old gods, brought to America by all the different immigrants (including Thor, Leprechauns and the egyptian cat-godess Bask), and the new gods, created through our daily worshipping (yes, ther's a TV-God, think about it!). The perfect book for long winter-evenings on the couch!

3. "A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" a Trilogy in five books by Douglas Adams

So true, so funny and simply one of the best books in the world!!! Favourite character: Marvin the depressed robot!

2. "Soul Music" and all other Discworl-novels by Terry Pratchett!

Terry Pratchett invented the Discworld, to hold a mirror up to our faces. Although settled in a world full of myth and magic, parallels are quite obvious. And btw it's hilariously funny written!

1."Ronia, The Robber's Daughter" by Astrid Lindgren

I don't remember how often I've read this book as a child. But it influenced me a lot. It's about strength, friendship, bravery and raising your voice for what is right. And all this from a girl's point of view!

Ooops! Do I have 13 already? Oh there's so much more but that gives me opportunity to write another TT about my favourite books ;)

Hope you enjoyed the list, I'm looking forward to your feedback!

Tuesday's Tickle Treatment #1

Hey folks, it's me again!

You know that there's a lot of crazy and incredibly funny stuff in the internet. That's why I started this new series, where I'll show something that at least I think is funny on a weekly basis.
And to be very honest I actually don't care if you do ;)
But nevertheless, feel free to comment and if you have any suggestions for stuff that should be shown here, let me know!

I will start with a little film made by Jennifer Shiman and the Angry Alien Production. They specialised on little cartoon movies, having bunnies reenact famous films in about 30 seconds. I'll probably show you more of these from time to time.

So here we go, have fun:

The Shining

Redrum! Redrum!

Tuesday, October 23, 2007

And the winner is.....

.... me, me, me, me!!!

I just can't believe it! I really won something!

Remember the backlinking contest I wrote about? It was started by Lincoln Adams and the prize was a 100$ gift-certificate from a major- online-book-store ;)

And yeps, I really made it, I won something for the first time in my life! Although I must admit I'm not sooo much of a gambling person. I test my luck from time to time in charity lotteries, cause if I don't win, I still have the feeling I'm not just stuffing my money up somebodies greedy a**.

Bye folks, I'm off shopping :)

What the f...?!? #2

With Halloween on the front porch, I thought it might be fun to think about how the rest of the world gets prepared.
When it comes to costumes, this years award goes to Japan!

Urban Camouflage

Not only are these costumes very practical, they also protect your family against violation.

But why should I complain? We Germans made wearing strange clothes a national tradition!

So get prepaired everybody! The rest of the world is already one step ahead ;)

Always dreamed about being famous? Looking for a great job?
Here's your chance!

The bald-guy offers you the impossible. Like Bruce Almighty you can become a god. And the bald-guy will take care of everything, from gathering disciples to worshiping you.

But stop! As nothing is for free in this world, not even death, cause it'll cost your life - you will have to participate in a little contest, applying for the job!

I foresee: hundreds of people worshiping me ... muha .. muhaha ..MUHAHAHAHA

If you think I'm sexy ...

Two days ago I read a wonderful poem on antibarbie's site. It was about self-confidence and loving yourself just the way you are, even if you don't match the current ideal of beauty.
While reading it I remembered a Dove advertisement called "Evolution":

Isn't that scary? I mean, why do millions of women chase after an ideal that is based upon fake? Of course, the moment you go from chubby or big to jurassic, you should think about losing some weight. But I woulnd't swap belly and brains for being skinny and lacking self-esteem! No thanks!

So here's hooray to all women who love their body no matter what size or shape! And hooray to all men that enjoy curves and women with substance - latent ambiguity is desired ;)

And if you still worry, take a look at this - and always remember: it could come worse!

Pfuuh, I think I need a chocolat bar now ...

Nice party! But where are my pants?

Yoiks! Folks what a night, what a party!

We visited the Karaoke Bar and - heck! it was so much fun. People were singing, I got pretty drunk and then I lack memory ...

A gift certificate for a chocolate fondue for two persons from my mom.

Ready! Steady! Go!

The beautiful small village of Contest is part of France's Pays de la Loire region. The geographic location is 48°16' N 0°39'W, lying about 115 meters above sea level. 765 people live in this cosy place near the norther shore of France. Although it's not too big, Contest offers a variety of attractions for visitors. The local ping-pong-club is always ...


I'm writing about the wrong Contest? oh... hum.. well.. then..

If you are a Canadian and want to keep track of the latest contests in your neighbourhood, you should definitely visit this site. It gives you detailed information about which contest is going on where, what you need to do to participate and what you can win.

For everybody who's interested in sports, but bored by the usuall stuff, this site could be a lifechanging enrichment to his leisure time. It offers rules and inspirations for competing with your friends in unusual ways.

And for everybody who's just a keen blogger, Lincoln Adams offers a backlink-contest. I think it's a really nice idea to push your rankings. Participating is quite easy, for more details please read the contest-post, all details are explained there.
"But why should I do so?"
Cause, besides that it is a very nice gesture, you can win a 100$-amazon-gift-certificate.
But hurry folks, the contest will end on October, 24th, so get going!

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me,...

Yep it's true folks, I'm one year older now!
So what am I going to do today?

Normally, I'm not that much into birthday parties. Doing them at home is more work than fun - cleaning the house, cooking and baking, taking care of your guests and at the end of the day you're close to a breakdown when you look at all the mess that's left, waiting for you to be cleaned up.
But still I don't want to spoil the only day of the year that is supposed to be my day, by doing nothing at all.

And this is the plan:

Most of the day I'll spend relaxing and shopping for some new hot clothes to wear at the party tonight. Tonight? Party? Yes, I won't do it at home, but I've invited everybody to this cool little bar. It's a Karaoke bar and I think we'll have tons of fun there, especially cause their cocktails are strong and taste soooooo good :)

Have you ever been to a karaoke bar? Try it, it's so much fun! If you want to practise before going there, here's your chance:

Tune in again tomorrow, than I'll tell you what presents I got, and what happend at the party!
I definitely foresee a hangover for me ;)

Riddle me this, riddle me that ...

Ever wondered what your special day means to the rest of the world? Wanna know what was cool and groovy back in the year you were born?
You can find the answers with the birthday calculator!

It's a funny little gadget that gives you not only astrological information, but also tells you which VIP shares your date of birth and what songs were hot in the year you were born. Moreover it tells you what your birthday would be according to a different calender.

For me the machine spat out this:

I share my birthday with Evel Knievel and Rita Hayworth.
Top songs of 1979:
- D'you think I'm sexy by Rod Steward
- Hot Stuff by Donna Summer
- I will survive by Gloria Gaynor

and of course

The site also offers a printable-friendly version. I think it's also a nice idea for a friend's birthday to have it printed out on nice paper.
Give it a try, it's free, it's fun.

Hey folks, today is Blog-Action-Day and we're all supposed to write something about the environment.

Bloggers Unite - Blog Action Day

My proposal to do something for the environment is to donate to the
As I am an animal-loving person, I've been regulary donating during the last years.
However there are some reasons why I donate to them and nobody else:

  • It's always your choice how much and how often you donate, no contracts, no minimum amount of money, etc. I personally donate about 10$ every 6 month, that's as much as I can afford as a student, but it's better than giving nothing at all.
  • They always have a "special-donation-offer", meaning that you can donate for a special project.
  • If you donate "enough" (which means 25$ or more) you'll get a little present, and even if you don't, from time to time they'll send you little treatments like adress-stickers or postcards, for free.
If you don't want to or can't donate, their homepage offers loads of possibilities to participate and raise your voice for a better world.

Keep on rollin'

Technorati Profile
As you can see, I'm quite a noob when it comes to blogging, but I try to figure out how everything works and how to improve my blog, so I visited Technorati today and joined in. Let's seee what happens next!
(Of course I already do know what happens next, but I don't want to spoil it for you)

What the ...?!? #1

Now and then I have strange visions. So strange that even I get scared!
So watch this only, if you dare to face the freaky thruth:

And if you seriously think about purchasing one of those, look for it here.

Who needs a Sorting Hat when you can have a(n) (un)sorted bag?!

"Handbags are like black holes, and I'm afraid of putting my hand into them, fearing that it might get lost!"

Ladies, we all know sentences like this, and I think we must admit that there's a grain of truth in it. Concerning that even if you travel "light" you still need to stow your purse, keys, cell phone, hankies, make up, lipstick, chewing gum/mint, pen, safety pin, band-aid and, if you smoke, cigarettes and a lighter into this tiny little thing.
Furthermore there's "customized" stuff, like (sun)-glasses, books/magazines, chocolatebars/sweets, waterbottles, hairbrush, more make-up/cosmetic products of personal choice, various pieces of paper of unknown heritage and the unidentifiable sticky stuff at the bottom.

But all this would be a bearable task, if you had to do it once and then just refill and readjust the content, but we all know it's not that easy.
Just yesterday I had to unpack my medium-sized, lightblue "everyday/shopping"-handbag with flower-pattern, sort the content, pack my small, black leather "I'm-going-out/important appointment" bag, and finally put the stuff left-over back into my everyday-bag. Tonight I will repack everything, of course.

As you all know my predictions will affect the future of (wo)mankind, so please help me to channel those energies right. Take a second and think about your perfect handbag!

To me it would mean ...

... you wouldn't have to spend minutes over minutes anymore, rumaging in the dubious, dark depths of your bag for your keys or anything else, cause it has a inserted sorting system that keep everything in it's place.

... via a small touchscreen, you would be able to change color, size and material until the bag matches the occassion and your outfit.

What else can you think of? C'mon girls, share your wishes with me and feel free to comment!

P.S.: If you want to know mur about the little fur-bag on the picture visit:
