It’s that time of year again. Actually, I think the red and white stripes look a bit too much like candy cans; if you don’t see my thumbs it seems I am fixated on the wrong holiday. I am, in any case, very happy with how the stars came out. Stars and strips forever. Let’s […]
I was really in the mood to do some browsing for summer dresses at ASOS today. This is what I found at their website: asos: discover fashion online SORRY WE HAVE HAD TO TAKE THE SITE DOWN DUE TO A FIRE IN OUR MAIN WAREHOUSE.
I’ve always been my father’s daughter. Well, yeah, obviously. But I mean in the sense that I was a total Daddy’s girl. He was a craftsman, with fully pimped out garage complete with power tools that he actually used. I loved watching him build stuff. He built so much of the furniture in our house: […]
I actually started this post about a year and a half ago. I thought it was an interesting topic, but apparently very few things annoy me. (Pause for uncontrollable laughter to that ridiculous idea). OK, so let’s get to it.
I was tired returning home from work one sunny afternoon just over a month ago. I wanted to curl up in bed and take a nap. My husband joined me. That was when I realized how much I missed having our feline companion jump around the bed whenever we were feeling down and, simply by […]
I finally managed to watch the finale of How I Met Your Mother. I liked it. But um, that comes with a few caveats. ** spoiler alert, only continue reading if you’ve watched the finale of HIMYM **
Since I don’t live in the United States, I’m not even sure when the finale is airing (has aired ?). I did know it was going to be in March, and, well, as today is the last day in March I figure it’s soon. But um, before we continue on our journey through the best […]
I am a big fan of How I Met Your Mother. I watch old episodes when I need to get to my happy place. Yeah, there are running gags that were never particularly funny, Ted is annoying on almost every level, and lots of their jokes are overplayed. Overall though, the show is fun, the […]
I recently started a more stressful than relaxing hobby of selling stuff on eBay. I also sell on the Swiss equivalent auction site, Ricardo.ch; I do not know why it is that eBay does not have much penetration here in Switzerland. Could be that Swiss eBay is only in German, despite there being three other […]
Thinking about rainy day weather. And more specifically, walking in it. As often happens, I left home this morning not even realizing that it was raining (remarkable in an apartment that is practically 1/3 windows). Clearly, I did not have an umbrella. I used to wear an awesome Puma puff jacket during the winter which […]
