But I am struck most of all by the subject's beret and argyle, flaunting both his French heritage and man's archetypal yearning to be perceived as Scottish.

Results of my grandpa's post-therapy out: no cancer there anymore, he doesn't even need to take hormons any longer!!!!!!!!!!!!


They celebrated with apple pie (Perla, if you ever happen to be in Lower Bavaria and craving for homemade pie --> check in at my grandma's kitchen!), he took 4 pieces, yeah and then afterwards he rehearsed for his gig at the home for old people (he volunteers there, playing zither + singing, the old folks totally dig him and he digs being their superstar; he couldn't play there for several months though cos of the operations and later the daily radiation therapy...). But as he's a healthy man now again (quote of my granny: "rosy and looking content like a laughing Buddha"), my granny (aka "The Red Herma" - a nick she got in the 60s or so for being one of the only two socialdemocrats for miles around - and a rebellious one at that, disturbing the conservatives' party meetings and stuff, only last year she was at a demo against the neo-nazi shop in their town - RESPECT! she could hardly walk cos of her back...) went political on him: He just played "Lustig ist das Zigeunerleben" (=Funny is the Gipsy Life), one of the tunes the old folks love most, my granny went nuclear: "Woah, this old idiots, when they were young they put gypsies into KZs - that's how "funny" gypsies had it..." After some discussion, my grandpa allowed her to go through his programme and x out the questionable content: WW2 soldier songs, Naziesque nature/country folk/herodom stuff - and he's to bring up all his song texts from the cellar for her to check.... That's me granny! And life is normal again!

    And only six more weeks and she'll be in Berlin for some days, and then in August again - yay!

  • That the 2009 Transsib thingie starts taking on shape and a cool bunch of people will come with us!

  • Busses, trams & subways!

Great site! I think my favorites are from les freres chapuisat - their constructions remind me of what I used to build when I was a kid until ordered by parents to tear them down

Oh - ETA:biggest happy of the year so far for me -
I just got an amazing new job with a non-profit doing what I'm supposed to be doing! Over the moon happy dancing in constant amazing amazement

I just found out my sister-in-law wants me to be the godmother of her first child (two more weeks!), and I'm ecstatic. Not only because she picked me, but because in picking, I finally know how she feels about me.

that's really nice - one thing that my husband's godmother did for him when he was a baby was to buy a bunch of savings bonds in his name that matured on milestone birthdays ( 18, 21, 30 and 40). She was a really wonderful person in other ways too, so it's nice to think about godmothers in general, thanks Veruki.

Well, today has been rather trying for various reasons, a few tears of frustration, etc. But then my daughter said "Mom, you have to drop what you're doing and come look at this right now! It will make you very happy!"
I looked at it and it did make me happy, but the comments of sheer unadulterated joy and gratitude for this silly clever thing also made me over the top happy - especially around #137. I even enjoy the fact that there are bacon-hating trolls that show up here in this lovely little community of sweet souls.

It's nice to have someone in the world who knows exactly what simple stupid little thing will make you unreasonably happy.

It somehow makes me happy to look at a sun that isn't smiling all the time.
