Life Lesson # 34: Don't go to a haircut place where they don't speak your language...especially if you have to take your glasses off while they do their business.
adria:
What, no pictures?


How's life these days, aside from haircuts?

Why can't I edit my blog? Silly SG won't let me do it. Anyway, so as not to reveal certain information, I'm posting again quickly.

It's almost the end of the semester. A fun time for some. For me, I have to grade a about 400 pages of writing + write 20 pages of my own in the next couple of weeks...

I survived. Took my last final today, I did bad but it's over.
Being a teacher and a student would be hard, I'm glad you like it though. smile

If anyone has noticed the current controversy at the world chess championship, I'd just like to mention that it's not usually this silly! It's not even the chess players who are doing this, but their managers (one of them more than the other).

The original David was better....but this one was more intresting. Although as Richardson said, he looks like he has massive hands and a very small penis. I pointed out that he was outside nude with the wind blowing at him from the Rhine, which would make any man small smile

A few ancient jokes (if you don't laugh, blame the Romans!):

-An intellectual, falling sick, had promised to pay the doctor if he recovered. When his wife nagged at him for drinking wine while he had a fever, he said: "Do you want me to get healthy and be forced to pay the doctor?"

-An intellectual bought a pair of pants. But he could...

In Euripides' Bacchae, Dionysus wraps Agave in such a frenzy of sex and wine that she massacres his son, ripping his limbs from his body and possibly eating some of it. After she parades around his head believing it to be a lion's head, she slowly comes to realize that she has murdered her son. When she (and her father) reproach Dionysus for his...

This entry's too cryptic for me to follow. confused

I don't know that the universe ever seems like that to me. I wish it did. It would be easier if we could blame some capricious jackass of a god for our miseries, and realize that at least our suffering has some payoff as a playwright's plot device. Because that means somebody's watching, and somebody cares. Instead I spend a lot of time pretending that there's a cosmic pattern and trying to close my eyes to the secret conviction that nope, it's all pretty much random apart from the thin and tentative strands of society pulling things together as best they can.
richardson:
mais noooon, pauvre petit chou-chou. we'll all be fine and you won't eat your cutest little baby-daughter.
I've just finished kassandra by christa wolf and she's suggesting that helena never reached troja! that paris lost her to an egypt king and troja had to fight that war against the greek to garder leur visages. BUT the greek knew there was no helena to rescue, so it was an absurd war.
oh and how much i enjoyed your last email.. you and i, we share the same thoughts, petit diable. i was about to send you something very similar.
and: no package arrived until now, i'm beginning to get worried. frown

Perhaps it's old news, but...

...it's always interesting to know how many insect fragments, rodent hairs, and rodent filth is in your food (and spices and coffee)

A special dinner here the other day:

steak au poivre
asparagus risotto
spinach salad

pain perdu w/ a coconut-pistachio crust

If I could make one kitchen recommendation that I've found very useful, it's: roast some hazlenuts, peel them (by rubbing them between two towels), and grind them in a food processor, blender, coffee grinder, or mortar, and put them in the refrigerator. It...

So many people I know are taking vacations! I'll just be here working. If I could go anywhere, I'd probably be:

1. Santorini
2. Provence
3. Walking Hadrian's Wall
4. Vienna
5. Japan

Or, really, I'd just settle for getting into Manhattan once in a while!

allcatsaregrey:
i need a vacation, too.

my top 5 would be:

1. provence
2. amsterdam ( i love week-end trips)
3. japan (to buy tons of action toys and kawaii stuff)
4. scotland (never been there-want to buy records in cheep second hand stores)
5. new york ( to buy action toys in my fave shop. never been there, but im sure its great)

as all these things are connected to having a lot of money, nothing of this will happen. frown

sad about this, i would have the time and people who would come with me and nice people to meet (you, for example)-but NO MONEY!!
this sucks...
allcatsaregrey:
its kidrobot in new york. theyve got all the figures i dream of..well, most of them.
have you ever been there?

there arent shops like that in germany. some comic shops also have a few figures but they are very expensive overhere, because of all the taxes and shipping. frown
