Jesse.anne.o‘s scenes-from-a-life photo posts are so intriguing, I’m trying it myself. Let me know what you think in the comments.
Since I haven’t felt like blogging, I’ve been:
Organizing a drawer with silicone cupcake liners. Thanks, Mom!
Doing my best NOT to play on the giant snake at the drugstore. German drugstores are glorious. The have diaper-changing stations and gift wrap stations, both complimentary. My favorite chain even has a water cooler and its own magazine. A snake, though. That’s going the extra mile.
Noshing. A wonderful discovery from the Asian grocery store. Balls of delicious, vegan-friendly, coconut milk-based ice cream! The variety pack comes with one ball of each flavor: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, mango, green tea, and black sesame.
Marveling at this shoe. I’d seen these online and never guessed they’d show up at TK Maxx (yes, it’s TJ in the US. Not here). I’d have tried them on for funsies, but it’s winter. It hardly seemed worth tugging off my boots and hiking socks to try on an impractical shoe. You know how it is.
Fighting tarnish. In New Mexico, it took years for my sterling silver jewelry to tarnish. In Germany, it’s the work of a moment and my usual ‘hang jewelry on the wall where you won’t forget you own it’ strategy has done me in. I cleaned out a small drawer and lined it sloppily with old fabric scraps. The little white box in the corner is for either pieces of chalk or silica gel packets to absorb moisture from the drawer and help discourage tarnishing… if and when I ever remember to buy them. IF and only if this works, I’ll find some velvet and make a prettier drawer liner. No sense buying velvet if the drawer setup doesn’t fix the problem.
Stretching my septum. I started with a 12g piercing, and have stretched up to a 6g! I’m only planning on one more stretch, and hoping to reach 4g before my 30th birthday in May.
Test driving a pair of Etym?tic (man, WordPress STILL sucks with diacritical marks!) earplugs during Jesus Christ Superstar. Loud show— I wore the earplugs the entire time. Some shows want to be the last show you ever hear.
Feeling concerned about these pieces of cereal.
Feeling even more concerned about this freaky lumpy bread man, haunter of dreams.
Wondering if I’ll ever be as handsome as Roland, the dashing/impetuous/boisterous/brash knight. Not so far!
Asking myself “is this supposed to be Genghis Khan?” before realizing I wouldn’t recognize Genghis Khan if he bit me… which he just might.
Buying new glasses! Yay! I went to three different German stores, tried on dozens of pairs of glasses, nearly cried out in horror at the price of frames, and finally ordered these from Coastal. You can see them more clearly here.
Experimenting with my old Mohops.
So, what have you been up to? Do tell!
