Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

BIG DOGS THAT THINK THEY’RE SMALL LAP DOGS ARE MY FAVORITE DOGS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD
My mother’s birthday was a few weeks back. So last month I went to visit one of my favourite stores in the mall, a very new age-y type store with “energy crystals” and perfumes and various kitschy items, to try to find something my mum would like. The store owner is this old Mexican fellow named…
Sounds like someone put all their stat points into charisma.
She was supposed to be the next Magical Girl, but the dog touched the magical artifact first!
Now she has to help her pet fight evil and also prevent it from flying all over the place in search of bacon.
Inspired by a goofy skype conversation and not a real thing ;0
Oh damn, got tagged. Let me grab the ice and the buck—- oh wait, it’s not that. Phew.
Well then, here we go.
Birthday: February 4th
Height: 179cm / like hell I’m gonna use Imperial, go convert that yourself :P
Time zone: UTC +2
What time and date is it there: 3rd of September, 19:55, will be later when I finish this meme and much later when you read it.
Average hours of sleep I get each night: A pretty consistent seven to eight hours, with 5:40 as the time when my alarm goes off. I can work on less, but it’s not something I’d intentionally do.
OTPs: Oh dear god that’s never really been my kind of thing. Uh… yeah, I got nothing, sorry.
The last thing I googled was: “timezones”, to find out which one I’m in again for that question above. Before that it was “putting on a hakama” (or more accurately “Hakama anziehen”, because you know, being German and all that) - because I swear those things are confusing as hell at first
First word that comes to mind: “dinner” because that’s in the oven right now and I need to keep in mind to check on it
What I last said to a family member: Nothing special, just a normal “see you” (or rather “Bis bald”) to my grandfather and uncle after grabbing some stuff from their place that they were gonna throw out.
One place that makes me happy and why: I’d say Kyoto, but let’s stay local - the Saxon Switzerland. I love the outdoors in general, but that area just has so many opportunities. Be it just strolling the woods, having a nice hike or having an adventure climbing up and down boulders, it has it all. Going there with friends is one of the best ways to spend a day I can imagine.
How many blankets I sleep under: One. That is also the number of blankets I sleep *over*, because my mattress is kinda worn out after eight years and I kinda needed some padding between me and the springs.
Favourite beverage: Multi-vitamin juice. Also mead, for the few occassions where I do drink alcohol.
The last movie I watched in the cinema was: “Wir sind die Neuen”, a German movie about three older people getting back together in a shared flat and annoying the hell out of the young students living above them. Pretty good humor and nice characters, much better than I expected from a German film honestly.
Three things I can’t live without: My camera, my PC, all those silly and interesting people I call friends (yes, I count those as one thing, sue me :P )
Something I plan on learning: Japanese. I do know the basics and some, but I really wanna become fluent at the language.
A piece of advice for all my followers: Be open-minded. There’s often things you don’t feel like you wanna do for no good reason - that’s when you should try them out, you might just be surprised and find something new. And if you still don’t like it, well, at least now you have experience to back your opinion up.
You have to listen to this song: Wagakki Band - Senbonzakura Stumbled across that group while searching for something. They cover Vocaloid songs using a mix of traditional Japanese instruments and Western rock music and it’s awesome.
My blog(s): Only this one. Which consists of me reblogging funny stuff and pretty photography, sometimes posting my own and of course my reports on my Japan trips. Which will pick up again next year when I go on my third trip~
THIS SONG IS NOT ALLOWED TO BE PRETTY NO
Okay srsly, WHAT SONG IS THAT
This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Looks Like A Pink Sky
These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.
This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

You just want to lay out a blanket and lie under there!
