I can’t promise that I’m not going to drop this soon. I’m kind of bored and that is not a good start for a readathon. If this keeps being a dull sausage fest it’ll be out!

Opening Meme:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Hannover, Germany
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
The Animorphs one.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
The carrots plus dip!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I’ve participated in so many readathons, and therefore Opening Memes, that I’m out of fun facts. I… am wearing nail polish in the colour “Flamboyant”.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
I lowered my expectations. I’m aiming for 16 hours instead of 24. I’m old, being awake for 24 hours isn’t possible anymore.

And suddenly lesbians.
Maybe I’ll give it a bit more time because lesbians make everything better. Still a huge sausage fest, though.

Onions, feta and spinach are the best combination of pizza toppings ever. No, seriously!

I’m also still working on this awful potholder. I hate crochet, why do I do it again and again and again?

Okay, that’s it. I’m dropping it because I’m super bored. “War” is not my favourite topic. Granted, I could’ve know that before I picked this up but sometimes it works out. This is not one of those times.

Anything else?: I feel sick. That pizza was so delicious that I didn’t stop eating when I was full and “now we have the salad” (that is an actual, real German saying).
