15 Things You Didn't Know.

So... I'm gonna say Good Morning, because it's most likely morning for all of you, even though it's past 3:00 here!

Side note: I was told by a few people that my blog design was too "busy," and, after looking at it quite a bit for a couple of weeks and trying to convince myself that it wasn't (mostly because I spent an hour on the header), I realized that it was, indeed, very busy. Because of this... I made a new one! Let me know what you guys think - I'm actually really liking it. 
We went to Bad Nauheim a couple of weeks ago, and Hubby took this picture. I love it, and, as one of the most impatient people on the planet, I love this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson - I could learn a lesson or two from the nature that's all around us. 

Wow, aren't you guys in luck?! You can now cyber-stalk me; I was tagged by Melissa at My Soul is the Sky to answer some very personal questions for your viewing/reading pleasure. Totally kidding - they're actually kind of fun questions that I loved answering, but you'll probably think I'm a freak when you're done reading. 
#1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
Yeah... I got nothin'. Apparently Alyx is too short for a nickname. 

#2. What's a weird habit of yours?
After a shower, I have to start drying off with the tag of my towel on the bottom left when I hold it out in front of me horizontally. I then follow a strict drying off regimen so that each portion of my towel only touches one section of my body. If there's no tag on the towel, I find some flaw to mark the spot. I know, I'm weird. Hubby doesn't understand it. I also have to dry off before stepping out of the shower. 

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
Feet. And bugs

#4. What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?
Don't laugh. This one. It's a German kid's song.... 

#5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
People that drive slower than a 95-year-old grandma. 

#6. What's one of your nervous habits?
I crack my knuckles.  

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The left side for right now, but usually the right

#8. What was your first stuffed animal & it's name?
Who knows?!

#9. What's the drink you ALWAYS order at starbucks?
Starbucks is for rich people. As a severely underpaid person, I do not order my drinks from anywhere. I make them at home. 
#10. What's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?
I don't believe in beauty rules. At least not preaching them, because I don't practice any, and I don't pretend to know what I'm talking about when it comes to beauty. 

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Out, away from the water. 

#12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
Man, I'm a loser. I can't do anything cool with my body. 

#13. What's your favorite 'comfort food'/food thats 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?
Peanut butter. If you loved me, you would send me some JIF. 
#14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
Schade. <-- German for "pity, shoot, bummer" 

#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
My skivvies.

Hello Alyx,
Greetings from Jamaica. It is just after 8 a.m. and I am a new Follower of your Blog. I learnt about your Blog from FTLOB's 'Comment Love.' I think your Blog looks great. I also like the beautiful picture and quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Actually I like several of his quotes. I found the answers to the 15 questions very interesting. Such posts really help persons to learn more about a Blogger. Take care and have a wonderful week.

I saw some Jif Peanut butter the other day in TK Maxx, Don't have a clue where it would be in Germany. Wow, your towel regime made me giggle. By the way thank you for the comment on my wreath :)

Your layout seems cool to me (but being new to your corner of the net, I missed seeing the old layout). You're afraid of feet? Have you ever gotten a pedicure or would that lock you into a paralyzed cold sweat?
