The Same Procedure As Every Year.

Sorry, it’s New Year’s Eve. I’m living in Germany. This. Must. Be. Watched.

As well as a remake for children:

How about a live one, on stage:

Plus the ultimate Lego […]

It is hereby resolved that…

Ah, it’s the end of the year – time for housekeeping, of sorts.

Maybe a resolution, or two.

I guess there are two resolutions that I’m making for 2011.

First, I will continue to go to the gym, every other day, when practically possible.

Although I’ve been planning on starting the gym […]

Das Fitnessstudio und ich: Ich liebe das Fitnessstudio.

Für ein und ein halb Monaten habe ich das Fitnessstudio gefahren.

Es sind zwei Fitnessstudios in der Nähe von mein Wohnung—und mein ist die zweite nächstgelegene. Das Fitnessstudio ist sehr Schwule-freundlich. Ich denke dass 99% von der Männer sind Schwule und die Augenweide sind Geil.

Erste im der Fitnessstudio stemme ich Gewichte. Meine Trainerin mochtest […]

It’s lonely at the office this week.

While I could have taken vacation days and had this week off, I made a strategic decision to save my vacation days for 2011 when there’s better weather and my urge to escape the office reaches a feverish peak.

Nearly everybody else, though, had the opposite idea and the office is essentially empty.

Today I […]

Merry Christmas

Remember this?

Well, today is the 24th, and 23 doors have been opened.

But wait, there’s one more:

Another Kinder Überraschung egg, with a surprise inside, awaits.

Once assembled, the toy took […]

Tonight’s Supper: Sweet Potato Soup

Final product shared with Snooker in Berlin whilst enjoying Love Actually.

Lesson Learned in 2010: On Guests

One thing I’ve learned this year is that it’s easier to convince my friends and family living in America to come visit me now that I’m living in Berlin.

For some reason, despite Weimar’s relationship with Goethe and Schiller, plus it’s outstandingness as endorsed by the fact that it is the European Capital of Culture […]

Christmas Markets are Hunky-dory!

I’ve now been to a lot of Christmas Markets here in Berlin: Alexanderplatz, Alexa, Rathaus Spandau, the Adventsökomarkt, and the Lucia Weihnachtsmarkt (at the Kulturbrauerei). At the same time I have a new personal best: I’ve had, so far, four Glühwein at Christmas Markets this year. The best Glühwein so far was at a hut […]

Being Warm is a Mental Game

The past couple of weeks Berlin has been floating right around the freezing mark—most of the time a couple of degrees below, and a few days, a couple of degrees above.

I could be grumbling about this—and, in fact, I was—but I’m not—anymore.

Why, you might ask?

It is because I am going to visit […]
