Picturesque Month ~ 05'16
~ Made it on the Dawanda Lovemag mailing list. Thanks to my dear Lu <3
~Thrifty fun on May the 4th.
~ New books! One for me and one for the husband ;) Alright, his was for work.. Mr Ayoade is soooo weird! I love it.
We had a long weekend in May and one of my best friends and I decided to go on a three day bike trip including a day trip to Moryn in Poland. I tried out my new bike seat and had no issues at all! after 225km in three days the only thing that hurt were my legs and my arms. I couldn't really move my right hand from gearshifting so much as we had a bunch of steep roads to climb and go down. But it was really worth it and so cheap since we stayed in Brandenburg at my parents house and at her's the second night.
~We stopped at the polish market right behind the border to take a lunch break. They have so much weird shit there!
~ Homemade ice cream! Trying to get off the sugar and still have my icy treats, so I get frozen fruits at the store, blend them up with a bit of juice and stick 'em in the freezer. It gets super hard, but this way I don't eat too much ;)
~ We still have a bunch of Star Wars Posters lying around at work. Anyone interested?
~ Saw GOOSE live at Privatclub again after ages. I probably saw them about 5-7 times before and they rocked the club as usual. 4/5 Bazooka Points for me getting old and having to wear ear plugs..
~ Just wow! I get to manage the Jazz sales for a bit now and our biggest release this year was Gregory Porter's new album. I got to see him at the Berlin philharmonics and it was awesome! 5/5 Bazooka Points for oh so much soul.
~ The Strumbellas belong on a much bigger stage than the former Magnet Club one's (now Musik & Frieden), not only because they almost didn't fit on the stage with their seven band members, but also because of their awesome sound. 5/5 Bazooka Points for reviving The Decemberists feels.
~ Had to get out my full pastell goth gear for this year's Eurovision and our contestant Jamie-Lee.
~ She did a really goo job performing and did not deserve the 0 points... and you're telling me the Eurovision is not political...
~Summery view from Universal's new terrace where we enjoy a coffee break every afternoon.
~Guess what? I'm part of the Hauptstadt-Mädchen (metropolis girls) now. It's a Berlin blogger community and I can't wait to their events and learning more about blogging <3
~ A blast from the past: My american sister's uncle found pictures from 11 years ago when we visited him in San Fransico during my foreign exchange student year in America. So much fun! I really want to go back there someday.
~ Of course I had to go on a search for the building from the intro scene from Interview with the Vampire. We found a similar looking building and took a bunch of pictures in front of it only to find out while watching the movie that it wasn't that one at all :P But we still had fun pretending to be vampires.
