Once more I missed a weekly journal due to being out of town but here it is at last ^_^
Now to sit down with a mug of Earl Gray, a plate of delicious pasta with cream sauce and write this thing . . .
We spent a week in Tyrol, Italy, skiing on the local slopes and I brought home some pics for you, some wines for mum and dad and a horrible cold for me ^_^
As a part of our annual visit of the Germanosphere each Christmas, we will be going to Dresden in Germany tomorrow. I think that might do for a nice editorial next week
I have been doing some Christmas shopping lately and I hope to be finished soon
Here are some of the things I have chosen out:
Dad: not gonna say because I suspect he will be reading this
Mum: coffee maker
Brother: CoAs for him (need to print and frame)
Sister: Big teddy
Grandma (dad): Microphone
Grandma (mum): Bath set
Best friend : Plectrums
Best friend : Sweater
Peeps on dA: can't say obviously
. . . I wonder who I've forgotten
In world news (and my awesome opinions on them):
Haven't been up to date this week but from what I do know, Ukraine is still boiling with plenty Belarusians joining in the Kiev protests. Most of you must have seen this by now:
From what I see and read from our and foreign media, it seems that the protest are genuine and not blown up by the pro-EU media so all I can say is
Jen do toho Ukrajino! Nakopejte Rusům jejich východní prdele!
Хороша робота Україна! Ті російські Піднімати їх східних дупи!
Good work Ukraine! Kick those Russians up their eastern asses!
The Queen's nuts
Not that kind of nuts Apparently the police guards in the Royal Palace in London have been eating the nuts left out as refreshments! Lizzy II. isn't too happy about that and has even sent them a memo telling them to "keep their grubby paws off the nuts!"
I will provide you with the description since it is very interesting:
The Canadian Empire is built upon a complex system of etiquette and tradition, as well as hyper-militarism and fanatical devotion to the Canadian Emperor. This does not endear them to the rest of world, however, as their alien customs and sense of cultural superiority tends to turn off most other nations from potential diplomatic relations. They have a history of strong rivalry with the other great power in the immediate region; the United States of America, and military conflicts over "border disputes" are unfortunately common.
so head over there, give him a fave and tell him that he's been featured ^_^
I love the idea for the Hapsburgs Go give him a fave and tell him he's been featured
Music to my ears
I have fallen in love with Bonnie Tyler's singing lately. Enjoy
Aven in The World l: Tyrol
I am in none of the photos, those are just my friends
Like the year before, me and my friends decided to go to the school organised skiing trip to Tyrol, Italy and, as another good friend said "throw ourselves off snowy slope on pieces of plastic". On Monday at 21:00 dad dropped me off on Florenc in Prague where the bus was waiting. Now, me and buses don't get along very well. Infact, me + bus = sleepless, uncomfortable, in pain an usually stomach problems So I tried to eat lightly before leaving and I packed my favourite blanket and pillow with the Bavarian CoAs . I prayed that the driver wouldn't be one of those "boilers" who's only goal in life is to turn up the heating like mad and boil his passengers. As luck would have it, my prayers were heard and we had a relatively cool journey through Austria right to Tyrol. I didn't sleep a wink and instead spent the journey in a trance like state thanks to good music like Owl City and Bonnie Taylor. We arrived at Helm - Monte Elmo (1), just before sunrise.
Scrambling out of the bus to change to skiing clothes, we made our way up by the ski lift. What followed was a day of slowly speeding up my rides down, switching from red slopes to black and generally getting back into shape.
A stop for lunch - pasta aglio e olio - and we were off again!
Back to the bus and off to our hotel in Terenten (2) ( Gasthaus Hohenbichl ). A hot shower later, I was sitting down to a delicious dinner of wood-oven baked pizza. And there was plenty of it! Delicious. We chatted for another half-hour or so and then we all fell into a deep coma with exhaustion.
Day two saw us heading for the slopes of Speikboden (3)
I think I had Nudelsuppe und Knödel mit Vanillesauce for lunch then (yum )
Not much I can tell you of that day except for swift rides down the slope and that one friend dislocated his shoulder but thank god for travel insurance . Tired, we once more arrived at the hotel for a dinner of excellent grilled chicken and an evening of cards.
I woke up on the third day to a certain feeling that the cold, which I thought I had lost before leaving, was back. A pair of panadol swallowed with my morning tea got me back into working order. The ski slope of the day was Klausberg. (4)
A lunch of excellent Gorgonzola ravioli and Bombardino (eggnog, brandy and whipped cream).
We headed home where, after a dinner of steak, the evening was decidedly short since the WiFi was down and I was feeling very sick. Two more panadol and I was out for the night.
Next morning included hasty packing and a speedy breakfast before we headed for Helm (1) again. My bag was clinking with five bottles of good, regional (and other Italian) wine so I had to store it cleverly (so that it wouldn't break during the journey) and quietly (so that the teachers wouldn't notice ).
This lunch was Tortelini im Sahnesauce mit schinken und Gulachesuppen. After changing into traveling clothes and making myself look a little more human, we had an hour before the drivers 9 hour pause was up so we spent it over a mug of Earl Gray and Apfel Strudel. And once more, another sleepless bus-ride night later, we were in Prague at 3 am. I fell into my bed with a slight fever and slept.
And this is how I sit here in front of my computer, all bundled up with another mug
of tea, the pasta finished and wishing you a good night
