Tonight’s Car-Bus Accident

No apparent injuries to the driver of the car.

The greatest invention ever: Prosecco 2Go

Today’s been, for me, a really good day.

For the most part – the only problem was when a train wagon I boarded had eight guys dressed with the same t-shirt, each with a 6-pack of beer. This was my cue to move to a different wagon where life would be more civilized.

Although I’m […]

I’m not in sync.

I can’t believe it: Germany won Eurovision with what I think is a really bland song (Satellite) sung by a forgettable girl (Lena). I don’t care that she did her hair for me.

Her victory moments on stage were insane—I don’t think she had ever considered the possibility that she might win. She […]

It’s Super Saturday: Eurovision 2010!

Eurovision was one of the first European things I ever latched onto—and I latched onto it not knowing what it was whilst being totally clueless about its history.

This explains my silence. I’ve devoted about 9 hours over the last two days to […]

On the mend…

I have to say that the current cold has come and gone with incredible speed—I actually feel alright.

My only problem is the laryngitis—which is easing. Yesterday I couldn’t talk at all. Today I’ve managed two phone conversations—which is two more than I planned on, but I was able to make some understandable utterances.

I […]

bitch, bitch, bitch

I’ve spent more time than usual the last couple of months reading feminist literature trying to understand it and the good news is that, in general, I do get it.

Maybe not completely, but here’s the deal: I accept and acknowledge the fact that women have not always been given a full voice in history […]

What a beautiful long weekend. Too bad…

I’m actually stuck at home, recovering from what appears to be a mild cold.

It started Wednesday when I woke up with a mild sore throat. Instead of risking it, I stayed home, worked from home, and by mid-afternoon I felt fine. The sore throat was gone and I was ready to start dancing.
