The German word for “the law for the delegation of monitoring beef labeling.”

Here’s how crazy-long German words are made.

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: Echt?
Peter: JA.
Laura: Bist du echt sicher?
Peter: JA.
Laura: ...woher kommt das?
Peter: The Kiva. Es ist Hippie-Spargel.
Laura: ...vielleicht ist es homosexueller Spargel!
Peter: ...okay.
Laura: Das kann ich essen.

Bestes Lied der Welt, Bushido

My boyfriend and I read some of Der kleine Hobbit aloud to one another in honor of Tolkien Reading Day. :)
