Dixie Peach: Wrap it up, I'll take it

Wrap it up, I'll take it

1. I've come to the conclusion that if I watch something on TV in English while riding my stationary bike then I can stay on a lot longer. German TV watching doesn't capture my attention enough to distract me from the ever growing ass numbing discomfort of the saddle.

I need one of those gel saddle covers or to record more stuff in English.

2. I want to go on a trip. Back to London perhaps. I loved it there but being with Gabi, a friend of mine who is, shall we say, less than cultured, didn't make it the great time it could have been. First, I had a lot of trouble speaking with her. Back then my German was pretty pathetic (as opposed to now where I can claim that my German is merely pretty bad) and all she wanted to do was go shopping and no where interesting, may I add. Yes, I realize that prowling around the used book shops wouldn't really hold the interest of a non-English speaker but for God's sake, suck it up for an hour. I just wish I could get back there and do the things that I really wanted to do. I'd even go by myself if I had to.

3. Tell me it's not fate that my microwave falls apart mere months before I buy a new kitchen with all new appliances. Tell me that the timer knob falling off in my hand isn't a sign that I was born under an unlucky star. Like I've got time to haul my ass over to MediaMarkt to get a new one. Eh. I'll just order one online.

I swear, if I could get reliable grocery ordering and delivery online I may never leave my apartment. Except to go to London.

4. Okay, now I'm looking online for microwaves. Daewoo makes microwaves? Better than their piece of shit automobiles, I hope. Ah. Here's one with a radio included! And here's another with a pizza cutter included - free! How about one that has someone come by on a regular basis to scrape the greasy crud that seems to make its way into my kitchen?

5. B's ordering the microwave now. I mean how could I resist the free pizza cutter?
