Matt’s book was translated into German - including the translation #german #family #daddy
23 years old. Queer. New York. BA in Gender Studies. Germanophile, writer, reader (see my books here), feminist, runner, writer, lover, nerd. More about me :) In recovery from an eating disorder; living with PTSD. Trigger warnings always apply, please take gentle care. What's up, babycakes?
I don’t like Bushido AT ALL, but I have to admit that I love this one and the lyrics are actually nice.
I love this song and it is making me feel better tonight. Ich vermisse dich, Deutschland!!!
I had a long day and the combination of major restricting (oops - almost fainted at work) + having my period + not getting enough sleep + not getting enough water + having a little cold = I feel awful. Also I was trying to break in leather shoes for work and I can hardly shuffle around on my blistered, tender, sore feet oh my God. And just generally I am exhausted and cranky and nervous about math on the GRE (eep eep it is so soon). On the way home, I helped my mom run errands and was just so ready to get to my house.
So imagine my surprise when there was a package waiting for me, from my lovely boyfriend, containing peanut butter cookies (my favorite!), his copy of Der kleine Hobbit, and a sweet postcard! I am so blessed to have such a thoughtful boyfriend who is both a whiz in the kitchen and a German speaker. :) :) :)
& now: change into comfy clothes, pamper feet, make & eat dinner while watching Pond Life 1-4 and then more Season 3, Skype with boyfriend, maybe read a bit, and bed. Math can happen more tomorrow.

|Laura:||Was ist das?|
|Peter:||Das ist Spargel.|
|Laura:||...aber...es ist LILA!|
|Peter:||Ja, das kommt manchmal.|
|Laura:||Nein, es kommt nie! Spargel ist grün und braun.|
|Peter:||...oder manchmal lila.|
|Laura:||Bist du sicher, das ist Spargel?|
|Peter:||Jaaa...du hast ihn gegessen vor zwei Tagen.|
|Laura:||Bist du echt sicher?|
|Laura:||...woher kommt das?|
|Peter:||The Kiva. Es ist Hippie-Spargel.|
|Laura:||...vielleicht ist es homosexueller Spargel!|
|Laura:||Das kann ich essen.|
