Angels with Filthy Souls

Now admittedly I haven’t had as much time to sit in front of the television and watch stuff as I had originally planned, but two things intervened.

First, I popped over to the UK for a friend’s going away party and secondly, I’ve been cat sitting.

Admittedly, I have been watching “Dead Like Me” whilst […]

Holiday: Easter Monday

Despite there being no discernable holiday on today, it’s a holiday here in Germany.

I guess it’s the day that people recover from their Easter hangovers: too much of the communion wine, or something like that. I really am clueless. I do know it’s also a long holiday weekend in the UK, and presumably other […]

Basic German Etiquette

Either I bake sweets tonight for tomorrow, or I buy them in the morning. I chose to bake a Red Wine Cake. Before, below.

Carrot Cake

Homemade Carrot Cake is the best.

And why this is it for the blog today.

Have you twittered me yet?

It’s Cool Out

The weather here in Weimar has really been fall-like this week and I have shifted into baking mode.

Yesterday I made two loaves of bread—which did not turn out that well, but suffice for snacking.

Today I was more adventurous, pulling out the self-imported white chocolate chips along side the self-imported brown-sugar and made White […]


A trip to an American supermarket is an adventure—especially if you’re used to shopping in supermarkets that would fit in the produce section of your typical American Kroger.

I hit up the local Kroger yesterday—shopping cart in hand (hey, it’s free! No 1€ coin in the slot for a deposit), and started shopping. I was […]

Chasing My New York Celebrities

It’s hard for those who have not visited The City to understand, but clearly New York becomes something special for those who have visited it.

I have to admit, though, that I get annoyed with all the touristy things and, often, have atypical wants and wishes for my time in the big city. Today, for […]

Baked Saturday

The weather in Weimar has taken a definite turn for the worse.

Today it was overcast and windy with periods of light rain. It was also fairly cool out—no more summer weight jackets when venturing out. People were bundled up walking down the street.

Rather than spend my day out, I stayed in most of […]

To Swaziland… or not?

Travel planning with the Cynical Queer is underway, and I’m pleased to say that several years of diligent clicking through emails has led to a US$230 hotel room coming to me for free whilst in the Johannesburg area.


We’re still deciding whether or not we’re going to visit Swaziland, that tiny African nation sandwiched […]

Peer Pressure

One of those things I remember from my (successful) anti-drug education in elementary, middle, and high school was the constant warning of the dangers of peer pressure. The infamous DARE education has worked, at least for me; just not for society in total.

According to my teachers, the most dangerous person who would be likely […]
