Gross Halloween Thoughts

One of the great mysteries of flying are the number of people who take their shoes off.

Ok, that part’s not a mystery—on a long haul flight when you’re trapped in a seat for hours at a time, it can be worth taking your shoes and zoning out without the constraining factor of shoes.

Hurting Myself

This morning I woke up at 5 only to discover that a lead pipe had attached itself to my right shoulder.

It felt like that anyway. I’d managed to turn over on top of my right arm whilst sleeping—I had to lift my right arm with my left arm and reposition it so that it […]

It’s Dark, I say again!

I’ve probably talked about this before, but it really hit home today.

This morning, for the first time in awhile, it was actually light when I got up and went off to the office. It was nice to walk down the streets looking at the colorful trees and get on the train to my office […]

Falling Back

This morning the clocks fell back an hour here in Germany. I got an extra hour of sleep as a result, needed after I celebrated Katya’s visit from The Ukraine to Erfurt.

It’s been awhile since I last saw Katya. Most of you may recall her most vividly from when I went to Kyiv for […]

Butter at Breakfast

Am I supposed to put the butter between the croissant and the chocolate? Any tips here would be appreciated.

Geil Berlin Jungen Männer

I haven’t talked about last weekend beyond the Berlin Hustlaball, so here is more.

Berlin is growing on me and Saturday I had a fantastic evening hanging out with the fabulous Snooker. We had sushi at Papa Nô on Oranienstraße. Papa Nô chief geographical feature is that it is a couple doors down from SO36, […]

Rox ‘n Sox

Tomorrow evening (well, late night for me), the Colorado Rockies will take to the field for the first time, hoping to win the World Series.

Anybody who knows me knows that I am not an athlete. At best I am an athletic supporter. The kind that likes to sit in the stands and watch attractive […]

Time Flies

It’s hard to believe, but in a week I will be in Weimar.

Ok, that was a bit of a tease, but in just over a week, I won’t be here—off on another one of my adventures to the New World: Hoosierland and Oregon. While I realize I was last in Hoosierland quite recently, the […]
