guest post: everyday is a new adventure.

today i am lucky enough to have Alyx over for a guest blog. over the last month or so i have gotten to know her better and can i just say that she is so funny, smart, and friendly. i'm super excited to have her and let all my readers get to know her more too! so let's get to it!! take it away Alyx...

Hey there, hi there, ho there, readers of Life as I Know it! I am just oh so thrilled to be here on Amy's blog guest posting today! 

My name is Alyx [no that's not a typo - my name is really spelled with a "Y"], and I blog over here. I'm not gonna lie to you guys. I'm having a huge brain fart and have no idea what to write about, so you lucky ducks get to watch me be a freak and ask myself a bunch of random questions which I will then answer. Cool, huh? I mean... haven't you always wanted to read some random girl's self-interview? Of course you have. 

So, without further ado, I bring you my interview with... me! 

Q: Why do you blog, and what do you blog about?
A: Well, I started blogging when I packed my life into two suitcases and moved across the globe with my husband. Then... I decided it was kinda sorta TOTALLY AWESOME and became addicted. I blog about a bunch of random crap. As I like to say, 

You won't find inspirational entries on my blog (unless the post deals with Nutella, in which case you will be inspired to whip out a spoon and go to town). 

You won't find crafts (unless you count poorly drawn stick figures as something crafty). 

You will find recipes, but they probably won't be healthy (unless, of course, you think peanut butter, nutella, and massive amounts of cheese [not all together] are healthy). 

You will, however, [almost] always, leave my blog with a smile on your face. I tell ridiculous stories, I takeridiculous pictures, I confess ridiculous secrets, I rant about ridiculous things [like the lack of evil stores like Walmart], and I share my thoughts on those ridiculous [but oh, so loveable] Germans.

Q: Do you actually think you're funny? 
A: Heck frickin' yes I do. Am I rolling on the floor, peeing your pants funny all the time? Nope. But I'll make ya chuckle. If nothing else... I'm funny bc I'm willing to make fun of myself. Moral of the story: I like to laugh. Laughing is fun, and it's good wen you can laugh at yourself. 

Q: What's your favorite European City?
A: Prague. Best city in the world. 

Q: If you could have any exotic pet, what would it be? 
A: An elephant. Those things are awesome, and I would ride it everywhere. Who needs a car when you have an ELEPHANT?!?!

Q: Do you speak German fluently? Why are you in Germany? Speaking of Germany, do Germans really run around in leather pants drinking beer all the time? 
A: Yes. Because I do what I want, yo. No... I'm actually here because of a scholarship. I know, I'm a nerd. And... only in Bavaria. Those dudes are weird! 

Q: Are you done being a weirdo and talking to yourself? 
A: Yes. If you want to read more from the weird girl, stop by my blog and say hello!
