I was vaguely aware that 20 years ago I graduated from high school – and that there would be a reunion of some kind.
There was: it was this past Saturday, and I missed it.
Even had I been within reasonable range (5,000 miles is not, 50 is), I wouldn’t have gone because I detest [...]
A week ago Sunday, I went on an adventure with a friend to an all-you-can-eat cake buffet at Hudson’s Bakery over in Kreuzburg (Quick Review: 8€, includes tea, great cake, do it).
Between the U-Bahn Station and the bakery, we passed a movie theater that I’d never heard of, Moviemento – and in its front [...]
After getting word that this weekend I’d be able to try Korean Tacos by Fräulein Kimchi, I rounded up a colleague and her plus one, convincing them to meet me at Chaparro in Kreuzberg for the momentous occasion.
Pictured above is my entrée: Chicken Korean Tacos. Also served were the Chicken Korean [...]
Last night I kind of nerded out and started sorting through a massive stack of paperwork that’s accumulated over the past month – there’s something cathartic about sorting through all of it, punching holes in documents and putting them in binders.
Maybe that’s not nerding, per se, but a sign of being too German.
Today I picked up a new pair of shoes and was given a free can of G-Wax that I could use to waterproof my new shoes.
I read the instructions on the bottom of the tin:
Anwendung: Sparsam mit den Fingern oder einem Tuch auftragen.
Basically, I’m supposed to sparingly apply it with [...]
The Safety Check, prior to the second period.
A few years ago I saw Whip It, and I enjoyed it – ever since then I’ve been interested in seeing an actual Roller Derby contest.
Unfortunately it can be challenging to see a match as the games are somewhat irregularly and infrequently scheduled. Furthermore the [...]
Last Sunday afternoon, after having tackled a mountain of email at my second favorite coffee shop on the planet, the 9th and Downing Dazbog, I decided that I wanted to indulge in something that one cannot get in Berlin: Great Mexican food.
I drove down one of Denver’s most infamous streets, Colfax Avenue, until I [...]
Saturday morning, after having breakfast with one of my oldest friends, we headed over to the brand new History Colorado Center – brand new as it opened only a couple months ago.
The new museum replaces the old facility, which looked like a typewriter and was both one of my favorite buildings in downtown Denver [...]
I’m in Denver, briefly, visiting my family and seeing my Mom’s new house.
So far I haven’t made any accidental trips to the old house, my car has managed to find its way to the new address without error each and every time. I bet I head to the old house the next time [...]
