I think living in America really did have an effect on how I respond to illness. As soon as I get a headache my first instinct is to pop 3 Advil and drink a Mountain Dew. Ah, sometimes I miss those emergency-late-night-Advil-and-Mountain-Dew-Walmart-runs.
Ways I bond with my cats #2
Stacking their tunnels, boxes, and other assorted toys into one giant tower, and watching them attack it and topple it over. They never get tired of it!
mareen: Wrote this text up as a response to an email asking about how I got to where I am at, but since it turned out to be pretty elaborate, I might as well share it… I started with analog SLR photography when I was 16, and after graduating from my high school/college (2003) and doing some ad agency internship applied to go to university for communications design (late 2004). That school (FH...

I fucking hate...
when people drop off 6 laundry baskets worth of laundry in the washing room. Yeah, okay, I get it, you wanna do laundry, but I WAS HERE FIRST and I still have THREE MORE LOADS TO DO. Perhaps you should have PLANNED AHEAD and thought “hmm, maybe by the time I decide to do laundry at 7 PM on a Saturday night, someone else will already be using the machine.” We have no washing schedule,...
My husband is a pretty special case when it comes to people who’ve learned English as a second language, in my opinion. His English is completely self-taught, yet every native English speaker we run into, regardless of where they are from, are shocked to find out that he is actually Swiss. A few reasons why: He hasn’t got a Swiss-German accent. He speaks a very clean, easy to...
Learning German by writing Haikus
My Japanese classmate Maako was pretty excited about this: Lieber Freund, du bist immer da. Tag und Nacht, machen alles zusammen danke für deine Freundschaft. (das Thema war „Freundschaft”) (we have too much fun in that class)
How you know a situation isn't really that...
Mom: just on our way to hospital, dad thinks he broke his foot at work
Me: oh my god, what happened?
Mom: he tripped over some pipe
Me: holy shit
Mom: he is just shaving
Me: what the hell, he's at home?! how does he walk?
Mom: he hops

Ways I bond with my cats #1
Sharing yogurt. He licks the yogurt off the bottom of the lid, and I eat what’s inside. Besides the fact that this is really cute, it keeps him from constantly begging to have some of mine.
Facebook added a feature called “People You May Know.” It sure had a lot of potential matches, but I didn’t know any of the people it suggested. If you want someone to be your friend on Facebook, you simply add them, right? Is this for those insecure people who are always worrying that they forgot to friend someone and this could possibly jeopardaize the friendship and what...

7 reasons Twitter can't be a Microsoft product
leumund: rouge: It does just one thing, and it does it very well. It has no extra features. It has brazillions of clients. It’s neither tied to Windows nor Office. It does not require an install. Nor does it require any fixpacks. Or a reboot. via stef

vinh: Here’s what I’ve learned so far: Walking in the rain without an umbrella is out of the question. Smudges. Don’t like ‘em… Ninja smudges. Hate ‘em. They create blindspots while driving. Warm food & drink fogs my lenses. People always say I look smarter with them on, because I is stoopid. Oddly, I feel more confident when I have them on. Sometimes I forget to put them on. And...
Yesterday we went to Ludwigsburg, in Germany. Despite living in the country right next to it, I don’t get to go to Germany all that often, so I was pretty excited. However, the day didn’t go exactly as I’d hoped. First off, I barely got any sleep the night before, so I was pretty tired even after sleeping in the car on the way there. Second, once we got there, it was raining....
via purzlbaum: Eine Blondine geht zu einen KFZ-Mechaniker. Dort fragt sie: Haben sie einen 710?? Meiner ist defekt. Der Mechniker überlegt ganz verdutzt und fragt: BITTE WAS? Blondine: ein 710, ich brauche das für mein Auto. Der Mechaniker fragt seinen Meister aber der weiss auch nicht was ein 710 ist und glaubt das ihn sein Mitarbeiter verarscht. Der Meister geht dann selbst zu Blondine und...
