Thursday’s Child and the Unhatched Eggs

This blog has really become a part of my life. I can tell, because every so often something happens and I find myself thinking: ‘I can’t wait to get to write about that.’ That also resembles the way my blog changed over the months since I started it in October. At the beginning it was […]

Everything that’s even slightly bigger than a normal letter doesn’t fit in, so it either sticks out for every stranger to […]

I Try To Take It As A Compliment, But It’s Really Hard

I just don’t know what to make of this. When I came back from work the boyfriend met with me and we went to eat turkish fast food and did some grocery shopping afterwards. We had four items: milk, some instant pasta thing and two bottles of beer. I then had to go through the […]

More Culture On Its Way

According to four mails I just got from dvdsoon.com my Wonderfalls DVDs have been shipped. According to my account on their website it’s still in packaging.
