Friending Meme!  
So I know a lot of us are more connected this year, after secretlypadfoot hosted a friending meme last year. But I know we have even more people around this year, and I know I didn't meet everyone last year! So I decided that maybe for once I should go ahead and do something, and so I'm going to host a friending meme this year. This might not be the time of year for it, I don't know. But there's no harm in giving it a go, right? I love having more friends and a more active friends list this year, and feeling more connected all around.




And here's a little quiz for you to take. It's largely taken from dear Padfoot, with a few tweaks by yours truly. If you have suggestions to change it up, let me know!

Copy/paste from here!:

Your name reminds of one of my favourite songs in German... ;) Friends?

Hurrah, of course! What a lovely coincidence. It's a nickname, given to me a long time ago now, but very close to my actual name so I'm chuffed re song in German. I've always known I was famous internationally... ;-)
