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 [...]
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 [...]
…but what does it really mean?
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 [...]
"Fans and air conditioners are sold out"
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.

Now a lot of [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
