Okay, so in regards to my last post, I had a dream last night where I was getting ready to go somewhere. But my hairdryer wouldn’t work right — it ran slow, so instead of my hair being straight, it dried really curly.
So, finally, it’s Easter weekend. Today it started off with a little bit of snow in the morning, some of which stayed, then melted, and now everything’s just wet and the snow’s slowly turning into rain. On Sunday I’ll go to my in-laws’ place with 21 other people… definitely the biggest Easter celebration I’ve ever been a part of. I can’t imagine what it’ll be like for my mother-in-law to cook for 21 people, so I hope I can at least make some sort of dessert tomorrow to help out a bit. I was thinking of going with Easter themed “bunny poop” cookies. With coconut. Mmmm.
I scored a 12 out of a possible 17 on my German quiz this week. My teacher was pretty impressed, considering I hadn’t covered 90% of the chapter they were working on, since switching classes. However, the praise wasn’t all that deserved — first of all, the test was multiple choice and that always makes things easier. Second, I fucked up on most of the grammar questions, which is, uh, pretty important to get right.
The weekend’s pretty filled for me:
Tonight: We’re going to the Ciné Deluxe in Cinema Pathé Dietlikon with Michael and Janka to see Michael Clayton. The tickets are expensive (42 CHF), but there’s a bar, you get some free alcohol, and as much popcorn as you want. The theatre seats 32 people in big, comfy chairs with a full view of the screen.
Tomorrow: Manuela is coming over to see the cats again, since it’s been a while. Hopefully I can at some point make that dessert too. If we’re not too tired, we might go see Juno in the theatre not far from here.
Sunday: Easter, of course. I already went over that above, but I forgot to mention that there will be a lot of chocolate-eating.
…about sitting around and conversing with people in a language none of you are really that good at. Mistakes are ignored, abstract thinking is used, and somehow, you all manage to get your point across. Everyone’s equal.
I’m a pretty simple person. One thing that sets me apart from most people is how much I’ve moved around in my lifetime (8 times). I was born in Canada, lived in the U.S. for 8 years, and then somehow ended up on the other side of the planet here in Switzerland.
I like to travel, although I don’t always get to do that much of it. I work for a fabulously stylish technology company located in the heart of Zürich. I speak German and Swiss German (Züritüütsch, yes it is a different language). I listen to overly-cute Japanese music. I enjoy taking photos, and a new camera is always on my wish list.
This is a little blog where I won’t always be serious, and may not always be interesting, but I hope you like it anyway. It’s powered by Tumblr and the theme is based from the lovely Familiar Glow theme, because it’s a great design, and I’m not up to designing one myself.
