Guys, Check Your Watch

Why are they firing off fireworks more than two hours before midnight? Patience is much, much underappreciated these days.

A Year in Review – The Music Stuff

As part of the whole reviewing the last year here are my musical highlights: 6. My amazement when I found out that I don’t hate most of German music anymore. Mostly because suddenly there were a lot of good German singers and bands. Where the hell did they come from? Why weren’t they there before? […]

What I Read

In March I thought I’d make it through the 60+ books that were on my booklist before the new Best-Book-Read-In-The-Last-Year list of Powell’s Bookstore came out (which was – and probably will be – around March, as far as I remember). In October I’d lowered my expectations to 52 books read by the end of […]

My Finest TV Hours of 2005, Pt. 1

It’s been a great year for TV show addicts like me. There were some disappointments, yes, such as the unexpected decline and following cancellation of “Joan of Arcadia”. Or the non-existent decline but still-following cancellation of “Kitchen Confidential”. But all in all, I think we can be satisfied. Veronica Mars didn’t get cancelled, we got […]

Frozen Strawberries Make Better Sauce

Here’s to my favorite recipe ever. Or at least my favorite recipe for cake ‘n’ stuff. I’m still really really fond of my pasta salad. One of my cooking magazines had a recipe for Cheesecake-Muffins and I finally tried to make those on Christmas day. It’s one of the easiest recipes ever and the result […]

William Mapother is Stalking Me, Pt. 2

For the second time now I recognized William Mapother in his less than 10 seconds appearance in a major movie. At least in “Minority Report” he had something to say (as far as I remember, that is). In “Vanilla Sky” he’s just That One Guy In A Club That Sits Next To Penelope Cruz And […]

Eek. Scary Dreams.

This night I had a very strange and creepy dream about a (the?) tsunami. Today I realized that it was exactly one year ago that the tsunami happened. I hadn’t thought about that at all. How strange is that?

I Married the Right Guy

How do I know? Because he gave me this for Christmas (mine doesn’t have the remote, though, but I’m too lazy to search for a better picture). I wonder if he was aware that this means that I will be playing my music non-stop in every fucking room of our apartment.

God Bless Us, Every One!

I hope my husband knows that if he’s not going to watch the Muppets Christmas Carol with me today I’m going to be cranky for… at least five minutes, that’s for sure. I’m really bad at grudges, especially when it comes to him. After all I just brought him coffee and Stollen1. Such devoted love […]
