Dear hipster

Dear hipster,

I know you feel like a very special snowflake and super intellectual with your skinny jeans and big fake nerdy glasses. But honestly you look exactly like all your other pathetic hipster friends and for fuck's sake if you don't need glasses don't wear them.

No love Jules.

Funny.

Since the world shows us everyday what a bloody stupid horrible place it can be (Syria, Libya, Japan, etc) I post something that will make your day or at least the next 1:23min of your life more cheerful.





P.S. NO I usually do not watch random youtube videos of babies or animals or whatever the fuck people say you should watch. I am the last person to do this but hello this baby is freaking adorable. Do not argue with me on this one. haha

P.P.S. I find it endlessly fascinating how resilient toddlers are (because this kid brains himself three times while giggling) and how they learn to use minor scratches or bumps as a way to gain attention (because they only cry when someone is looking). You know what I mean?! Kids are awefully manipulative and brilliant. Human behaviour is fascinating. (Did I just turn a cute little video into somekind of sociological thing... *facepalm*

Scheherazade by Richard Siken

What a beautiful poem.


Scheherazade by Richard Siken

Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
and dress them in warm clothes again.
How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
Until they forget that they are horses.
It’s not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
it’s more like a song on a policeman’s radio,
how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the
days
were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple to slice
into pieces.
Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it’s noon, that
means
we’re inconsolable.
Tell me how all this, and love too, will
ruin us.
These, our bodies, possessed by light.
Tell me we’ll never get used to it.

Fortune tellers.

OMG have you seen this?!
This little fellow is basically living next door. (And I haven't seen it yet. lol)
In Germany live the craziest fortune teller animals. First Paul, now Heidi. And they have these cute German names. lol
ABC actually wanted to fly in Heidi to the US but our zoo in Leipzig politely declined because HELLO?! it's still only a cute little opossum. So no flying around the world if you want to see it come to Leipzig (it's great the zoo has more animals and it's a city full of crazies if you look closely (me!)).

News article

I'm reading the newspaper article Requiém por el fumador (requiem for the smoker) written by the subdirector of ABC, Fernando Lafuente. It's a more than 1k long whine why the world is a bad bad place and why smokers a really sad and hated creatures for no reason.
I'm a smoker myself but I'm laughing my ass off here. This man is such a dramaqueen (and he can do it with so many words because he's the freaking subdirector) - it's pathetic strangely amusing.

Question

Quick English vocabulary question: the phrase "at the place of" is only used to localise something/to describe a location. y/y?! (Because my mind is confusing it with "in place of") Or can it be used metaphorically aswell?


(This is a silly question if you see it written down. My brain questions everything! Stupid thing.)

Reformation Day

In the spirit of today's Reformation Day. Because today isn't Halloween everywhere.
In honour of Martin Luther who enraged the Pope by saying that religion is something positive, personal and spiritual. Nobody can tell you what you want to believe in.


If God had a name what would it be?
And would you call it to his face?
If you were faced with him
In all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face what would it look like?
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that
you would have to believe
in things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints
and all the prophets


What If God Was One Of Us by Joan Osborne

The freaking octopus Paul was right. It's ridiculous and amazing.
Congratulations to the Spanish team. Felicidades estuvieron el equipo mejor. And it's decided when I've grown up I'll marry Xabi Alonso. lol
But it gets better Germany won the bronze medal again. So I'm quite happy with the turn out of the World Cup.

It's still boiling in good old Germany.

Pablo Neruda - Cien Sonetos de Amor - XVII

Because this is one of the most beautiful poems in the world.


Pablo Neruda - Cien Sonetos de Amor - XVII

No te amo como si fueras rosa de sal, topacio
o flecha de claveles que propagan eñ fuego:
te amo como se aman ciertas cosas oscuras,
secretamente, entre la sombra y el alma.

Te amo como la planta que no florece y lleva
dentro de sí, escondida, la luz de aquellas flores,
y gracias a tu amor vive oscuro en mi cuerpo
el apretado aroma que ascendió de la tierra.

Te amo sin saber cómo, ni cuándo, ni de dónde,
te amo directamente sin problemas ni orgullo:
así te amo porque no sé amar de otra manera,

Sino así de este modo en que no soy ni eres,
tan cerca que tu mano sobre mi pecho es mía,
tan cerca que se cierran tus ojos con mi sueño.

It's like a ten zillion degree outsides. Not the nice sitting at the beach feeling the sea breeze and coming home with a sunburn kind of heat. It's the a thunder storm is waiting around the corner kind of heat. So I am inside with a headache because of said heat, watching the pilot of How I met you mother (because it's summer break) and trying to think of a good excuse for my latest parking ticket. GO AWAY Mr off all that's evil aka red tape.

Tony DiNozzo's voice

The voice / dubbing speaker of the Very Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo (NCIS) is doing like a ten zillion commercials lately on German TV. So everytime I don't pay attention cos commercials are stupid and eat your brain I hear Tony talking to me. lol Sounds funny. Driving me nuts. haha Btw his name is Norman Matt. Yes I did google him.


I love the English word 'catchy'. There is no German translation that can capture the playfulness and possible double ambiguity of this word.
