A Mismash of Many Things!

I’ve had a pretty busy week – Actually it’s been a fantastic week.

I can only think of two “negative” things: First, I banged my leg into a table Tuesday evening –pretty hard—it took me 2 minutes of cursing before I could move again—and it hurt enough to noticeably bother me through Friday. It’s still […]

Two Consumer Questions: Crock Pots and Headphones

I have two questions about things I want to, or need to, buy in the next week or two.

First, my brother has asked if I have a Crock Pot. I don’t. However I’m willing to invest in one provided it’s not too expensive and it comes with recommendations. Do any of my German/European readers […]

This sign does not mean what it says.

…but what does it really mean?

Holy Crap! Guests are coming! I need to clean!

Other than the movers, the handyman, and the (unnecessary) plumber, the only person to have set foot in my apartment since my move-in day is… me.

In part it is because of my kitchen: I like to cook for my guests and until my kitchen cabinets are properly attached to the wall, I’m not really […]

Seen Saturday at Karstadt

"Fans and air conditioners are sold out"

America Week At Lidl

Thanks to an alert blogger somewhere (I forget which one, my apologies), I was made aware that Lidl is having American week. I trooped over to a nearby Lidl and went shopping for all my favorite “American” products.

For example, I could buy canned corn-on-the-cob!

Nothing says FRESH like Canned.

Now a lot of […]

I Key Uh

Tonight I popped over to Ikea in order to buy window shades (fail) and a lamp for my reading nook (success).

This being a trip to Ikea, I ended up buying candles (I begged my friend to get me out of the candle department), a present for a colleague, ice cube trays, and, in a […]

Freezing Cold…

When I woke up this morning, it was -11°C.

Such cold weather tends to make me feel like hibernating, but I managed to force myself out today. I headed to the city center to buy a new thermos for holding tea—my old tea thermos died a most peculiar death a couple nights ago.

I’d made […]

Shoes With Tea

I picked the pair of shoes below whilst in England—a brand I’d never heard of, El Natura Lista.

The shoes were cute, although I had to go up a half US size in order to get the width I needed. One of my foots is wider than the other, and the other is slightly longer […]

Adios Denver

Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver

It’s been a great week in Denver.

Unfortunately in less than 24 hours I will be winging my way east toward Old Europe, leaving behind my family for the land of good bread.

Whilst in Denver, not only did I buy five pair of blue jeans, I also picked […]
