Since we briefly covered US History in English I've had the 'We The People' Schoolhouse Rock Song partially stuck in my head. (Head, meet desk. Hard.)

More in the Stairs Escapade (get it? Stairs Escapade?...I've been paying too much attention in Latin):

As I stopped to examine the 'fick' door, I passed Draco Malfoy.
No, not Tom Felton, Draco Malfoy, as in mid-twenties, blond, pointy face, tall(er than me), wearing stylish (all black) clothes under a stylish (all black) ankle-length duster. Seriously, I heart that duster. A trench is as close as one can get to robes when passing amongst Muggles, eh? But alas, either he is not my soulmate, or we shall forever be reduced to Montague-Capulet-esque forces forever keeping us apart, because he smokes like a train.

Also fall is here, rather suddenly like in Thumbelina. Also like in Monty Python & the Holy Grail, particularly the bit where the guy under the tree gets conked in the head.

As a side note, baking makes one dirty (yes, and even though I know what kind of people will be reading this post, I leave that statement as it stands. XDD)

Because the German custom is to eat everything on the plate, I have these three steps for surviving gross bits:

1) Try everything on the plate first, so you can save the best for last to cover up the gross stuff.

2) chew in the side of the mouth, and swallow quickly, allowing the food to touch the tongue as little as possible.

3) Brot. Weiß Brot und Wasser. Oooh yeah. Together they can disguise almost anything.

'Good Job! You're a Clean Plater!' Yeah, thx for nothing, Herr Flinstone.

In other news, if I thought talking politics in English was hard...For those who care to know, in the Freie Presse today:

Der Papst hatter in seiner Vorlesung unter anderem die Äußerung eines byzantinischen Kaisers zitiert, Mohammade habe "nur Schlechtes und Inhumanes" in der Welt gebracht...

That is, the Pope in his speech quoted the words of Byzantine Kaisers, saying 'Mohammad has brought 'only bad things and inhumanity' to the world. (Yes, that's my own translation.) Natually this has made the Moslims a bit angry. It also sparked much discussion on the topics of religion and tolerance between Juliana and I (well, she *is* a religion teacher.) SO I want to know what everyone else thinks about this, if you care XD.

One last funny but insignificant trivia: Juliana and her sister-in-law are/were extras in the movie Liebe in September. Wow, the whole family gathering was watching the movie quietly, and then suddenly an outburst like fußball fans at a score every time one of them came on the screen. The back of Juliana's head is famous.

Okay I lied, more trivia: the same way that a sneeze in Japan (or your ears burning in English) means someone's talking about you, hiccups mean your mother is thinking about you. Mom, seriously, cut it out.

You're Unbelievable.

"Also fall is here, rather suddenly like in Thumbelina."


I fucking love your sense of humor. And the way you say things. I love it. As for the Pope saying what he did about MoMan, that's pretty ironic, because a lot of MoMan's teachings were a lot like Christ's, from what I understand. It's like what you learn about school. If the test question is multiple choice, and one of your answers is "always" or "never", it's probably not the answer. Nothing is definite.

Er, thank you. I'm glad I can keep you amused. ^_^

Yes, that cropped up in our talk...Juliana said Moslems were intolerant, and I'm like....!!!! That list went on for a while.

What what?

OMG, Draco! *dies happy* And next to the "fic" door, as well...

(Oh. *dies* I was thinking, just now. Doors, and whatnot. "Speak friend and enter"... "fic door"... It must mean friends with benefits. GRAH!!!! I am ruined, and you know who I blame? Hmm? DO YOU KNOW WHO I BLAME??? And no, it bloody well is NOT my muses. Not in this case.)

Oh, politics. I miss arguing. I have no one to fight with... *sniffle*

Also, I think your German goes better than my Chinese. My Japanese is improving, though. Admittedly, I understand more than I speak, but still... Also, I can currently READ more Chinese than I can say. I'm not sure whether this is a good thing, or a bad thing...

*sings* "Rocky mountain rain keeps on falling...!"

I went mountain climbing today, and it poured the ENTIRE time. I loved it completely! No umbrella for me!

(Oh. Now I want to find an umbrella that looks like Hagrid's...)

I've dubbed Taiwan the "Land of the Mushroom People" which sounds awful, but isn't. It's just...there are all these umbrellas everywhere. You look up the sidewalk and all you see are these multi-colored mushrooms. It's rather amazing...

"...and even though I know what kind of people will be reading this post..."

Again, I find myself asking: Do you know who I blame?

hahahahaha. Blame me. I'm incorrigible. (Friends with benefits. Open sesame. *cracks up* This is getting out of hand.)

*bland expression* Don't I know it.

*listens to Vic Mignogna's "White Night, True Light" remix*

Furher Vic does the dub voice of Dark, you know...
