Things I Actually Think About

Thought No. 1 So we know that ants are these little animals. They’re ants. And elope is something like running away. What’s an antelope then? An eloping ant? Something eloping because of an ant? Because it’s what? Scared? Either way, if you know an ant and you want it to run away, because it’s in […]

Tales of the Tenant (Part Trois)

My seven years of French are finally paying off. He’s gone. Gone gone gone. Not gone as in ‘met with us, gave us the money he still owes us and promised to be a better person from now on’, more as in ‘gave the keys to the janitor and took off’. He left us no […]

Now I Feel So Stupid

Okay, first I was the last one to figure out trackback. Only that I haven’t even figured it out yet. I’d say that I’m just to lazy to read the instructions, but that doesn’t change the fact that the one time I tried it I couldn’t make it work. Still blaming it on the laziness […]

Unconscious Mutterings – The Not-So-Green Side

Coroner – Six Feet Under (What? I am a TV geek.) Mystify – Making it even harder. Corroborate – And easier. Misinterpret – Happens every so often, expecially when you’re me. Humorless – Sucks. Calculus – Math. I loved math. Eye for an eye – Oh come on, that’s like ancient. CPR – Can’t do […]

Ask Jamie: The Abroad Experience

Willful Exposé asked: Here’s a question: How many times have you been to America and where? As Caitlin said, you’ve probably been here quite a bit because your English is excellent. I’ve been to America three times. You could say four times, because one time was really two times interrupted by a three week return […]

Don’t Be Shy, I Rarely Bite.

Maybe I’m just really self-centered and extremely keen on getting comments, but whatever. In the end, it’s up to you. In one of her recent entries Caitlin wrote about how despite reading my blog there are a lot of things she doesn’t know about me. So, go ahead and ask me! All of you. I […]

I Feel So Special

Yes, my blog is on the list for Round Three of Michele’s Scavenger Hunt. I feel so damn special, I can’t believe it. I’m also really happy because I figured out my clue immediately. I will give no hints though, so don’t bother to ask or bribe me. It’s too much fun to be spoiled. […]

Just Bring Them Back Someday

Somehow I always served as a private video rental for friends and family. I have top choice, offer good costumer service including recommendations and I’m really cheap. Just a moment ago a friend rented ‘Meet the Parents’, ‘Sleepy Hollow’, ‘Cruel Intentions’ and ‘Sex and the City Season 2’. Did he pay? Hell, yes! I call […]

Forget Sunday, It’s the Thursday’s Child Who’s Lucky

When I had my job interview for the traning I just finished I was asked what I would consider my most important successes and my worst defeats. I told them I honestly couldn’t tell them any defeats. It’s true, in my whole life I never had a defeat that I would label as ‘really bad’. […]
