  • John Ashbery

    My Philosophy of Life Just when I thought there wasn’t room enough for another thought in my head, I had this great idea– call it a philosophy of life, if you will.Briefly, it involved living the way philosophers live, according to a set of principles. OK, but which ones? That was the hardest part, I…

  • The battle of Oberbaumbr¸cke

    http://see.onemonkey.org/…&g2_itemId=5253 It tickles me that I will be able to tell my grandchildren that i fought the Germans for their benefit. Of course, I don’t plan to have any children so quite how i tell their children anything is something i haven’t worked out yet. And quite what the benefit to them of me having…

  • Uncle Albert and the Cosmic Raymonds

    http://www.einsteinjahr.de/ Ich habe keine besondere Begabung, sondern bin nur leidenschaftlich neugierig. – Albert Einstein* It’s Einstein year here. The 100th anniversary of his annus mirabilis, as I am sure you knew. The exhibition was really good, packed full of neatness and good ideas. There were lots of original documents and memorabilia and tons of scientific…

  • aren’t avocados cool?

    so many different textures and shades of green, the dark shiny nurby outer surface, the green baize nap of the inside of the skin. the complementary surface of the fruit. the smooth, firm not quite slimy flesh that can be cut so precisely to reveal the lightest greens and at its heart a home to…

    Life is like a box of chocolates.. if you read the handy guide provided then you’ll know exactly what is on offer and can choose accordingly. -Me although that is not necessarily my opinion!

  • A Secret Life

    Why you need to have one is not much more mysterious than why you don’t say what you think at the birth of an ugly baby. Or, you’ve just made love and feel you’d rather have been in a dark booth where your partner was nodding, whispering yes, yes, you’re brilliant. The secret life begins…

  • Vor dem Palast in Rom

    When in Rome one might expect people to speak Italian or possibly Latin. Here in Berlin, I didn’t necessarility expect to be sitting in the theatre in Tachales watching Titus Andronicus performed in Japanese. Why am I here? I just followed Davi. She has a nose for these things and an infectious enthusiasm. There are…

    http://www.chronwatch.com…y.asp?aid=16577 ‘SECURITY” IDIOT: I was checking in at the Fort Worth airport, when a security weenie asked, “Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge? To which I replied, “If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?” He smiled knowingly and nodded, “That’s why we ask.”

  • Sprachenschule

    Before I came here I thought I’d learn some German before I arrived.. I bought Michel Thomas’s excellent 8 hour course and another crap nine hour course that seems to be mainly designed for american tourists who want to complain about their hotel rooms. I also downloaded many hours of other Deutsche lessons from the…
