Not really, but usually between 7 and a half and 8 everyday, because later it's beauty sleep time for my daughter - kids need regularity.

The person after me loves wearing yellow although it doesn't really match their hair and skin colours.

No! The main color in my closet is black, the brightest dark gray. As a kid, my mom always [= most of the time] dressed me in yellow because she felt it flattered me. She wasn't right!

The person after me lights candles and puts on some music when taking a bath.

No, that would really stress me out. But I don't own a bath anyway. Well, only a baby bath.

The person after me usually sleeps longer than 8 hours each night.

The way this is punctuated makes it sound like black = the brightest dark gray. If, however, what you meant was "and the brightest color in my closet is dark gray", I would punctuate it "...is black; the brightest, dark gray." (Yeah, I know I gave you the business about using too many commas, but this is one case in which it's really necessary!)

Hoogstwaarschijnlijk wrote:But I don't own a bathtub anyway. Well, only a baby bath.

"Bath" sounds a bit odd here, since it's more often used as a clipping of "bathroom" ("This is the master bath") or in the sense of "an instance of bathing" ("I took a bath last night") than to mean "something in which someone bathes". "Baby bath" is different, since that's a compound in its own right.

I'm lucky if I sleep eight hours total in a night--and it's never in one block, usually two or three chunks or more.

The person after me has been interviewed for a publication.

Not only today, sadly.

The person after me has experienced a very interesting trip through Central Asian steppes and will tell us about it.

No, but I would if my daughter did that. Instead I have a daughter who has listened to books hours and hours so that her moms could work, I am proud of that.

The person after me has read Anne Frank's diary and tells us what they thought of it.

I haven't. I started it once in a pdf Catalan version but I can't find the file again to finish.

The person after me knows about Snoop Dogg name change from some years ago.

No, I hope to stay in the house where I live now for at least the next 20 years.

The person after me makes his own overnight oats each evening. (fun fact: my youngest daughter who is 1 year old and can only say a few words say: 'ooof ooof ooof' each morning to express how much she wants her overnight oats. It's like she's speaking English before speaking Dutch)

[In English, cacao is the plant and the bean and cocoa is the powder made from the beans and the drink made from this powder[*]. Generally we say "hot cocoa" if it's hot and "chocolate milk" if it's cold (and made with milk; nobody I know of drinks it cold without milk).]

Not yet, but this day isn't over!

The person after me has stopped taking selfies.

[*] Honestly, this may be one of the most perverse things we've ever done as a language.

I never started taking selfies so I cannot stop something I never started.

The person after me hates those days when there's nothing to do at work.

No, I love those days. Currently I have so much to do I don't even know where to start. I think that I could work 24 hours a day every day and still not get it all done.


The person after me prefers earbuds to headphones .
