Today is my last full day in Europe. I leave Germany in a few hours, and will spend the night in France before flying out in the morning tomorrow.

tl;dr - I fucking love to travel, even if it sometimes makes me want to cry )

Anyway, the moral of the story is, my trip was fun...

SO HERE ARE SOME PICTURES. (Haven't had a chance to edit them yet, so they're grainy and raw, but the best I can do with my simple little netbook)

You guys. LONDON. I loved it. Love, love, loved it. Except for the whole driving on the left side of the road thing, which I found very counter-intuitive. Still. It was nice to travel to a place where I could understand stuff that happened around me. Thanks, English!

The rest~ )

It's Advent, which means I miss Germany. A lot of my favorite Christmas traditions are German.

Unfortunately since there isn't a major population of Germans near when I live, there are like, NO german bakeries/stores/restaurants.

And I want a goddamn Adventskalendar. And Lebkuchen. And a freaking Christkindlmarkt.

Anyone in Germany want to send me some German stuff? I'll reciprocate, if, by any chance, you want some stuff from the US...

I went to the Taiwanese restaurant today for lunch with my mother and sister. There were experiences.

The stinky tofu story )

tl;dr - I ordered some stinky tofu because in Taiwan I had liked it. Don't like it now. Hid it in my purse because I didn't want to lose face. (<<< hahahahahaha Chinese culture reference)

I succeeded in mailing off four packages for the exchange. Yay!

I also got a job interview for Monday. It's not what I'm looking for, career wise, but it's supposedly a good company, and the hours are good for me (Saturday - Tuesday). And I CAN keep looking for other jobs while working, especially since the job will be a contract position. Still want to move to Hawaii...

Random bit of random - I'm not really a fan of Danson's, but I am quite enjoying this song. Though the video reminds me of a mashup of 5566 and Show Luo. I like Amber's part a lot, though I'm confused as to why she rapped in Korea. Why not Mandarin? Though I'm assuming she knows Mandarin, being Taiwanese American, but she might not - thus the Korean... Either way, good song! Though I'm disturbed that Danson is looking a lot like Kim Hyun Joong...

Korea's really getting into the FIFA spirit. Really early. (And yes, I know this is wicked old, but I forgot about it until now)

Sorry guys. I'm rooting for the USA and Germany in the world cup (maybe Italy too).

Did I ever tell the story about how I was in Germany during the 2006 FIFA world cup? Because that was an interesting time. Through some crazy coincidence, [livejournal.com profile] sn0tcat and I ended up in Berlin on the day that the Germany/Argentina game was set to be played (and the game was actually IN BERLIN). We were out sightseeing when Germany won the game, and ended up on a bus, surrounded by rabid fans. Then for some reason I thought it would be a great idea to get off the bus and join the mob (I blame that on the fact that I never got to participate in a sports mob in Boston. I was always out of state when we won things). It started out fut, but then a really drunk guy started following us (all the while talking to us in slurred German... I know German, but not well enough to be able to figure out what the hell he was saying at that time), and then proceeded to hit me on the head with a giant blow up hand. After that we left pretty fast. There's some other not-so-fun stories from our time in Berlin (think drunk British assholes who I wanted to beat the shit out of), but that's a story for another time.

(I love Germany very very much, but I have some odd experiences there, including being followed by a creepy old guy (thankfully in broad daylight in a densely populated area), being yelled at by a random lady in an U-bahn station (I still have no idea what that was about), getting accosted by a large man while waiting for the tram (it happens to me more than I'd like), and kinda getting thrown out of my pension by the landlady who I was certain did not like me...)
