Well, for better or worse, I'm back. And I mean that in two different ways. One, I just got back home a few hours ago from a trip to Germany. Two, I hope to resume blogging. We'll see how that one goes.
I figured that I would start it off this way...
Thoughts while in Germany
-- Good Lordy, I knew I should have studied harder for my German tests.
-- After being yelled at by an airport security official in Frankfurt for (of all things) having too much toothpaste: Seriously, what the hell am I going to do with an extra ounce of toothpaste, force you to brush your teeth while I hijack the plane?
-- After boarding a shuttle that would take us to our plane sitting in the middle of the airfield, a woman asked me, "Where is this shuttle taking us?" DO NOT say the words "gas" or "chamber."*
-- I can't remember that last time I slept. Or the last time I ate a hamburger. I should do something about both of those...
-- WHAT IN THE HELL AM I DOING IN GERMANY?!?
-- Oh hey! I have friends in Germany! That's right, I came to visit.
-- Hm, these Germans like their alcohol... No, No. I couldn't possibly have another sip of Cognac. Dani, quit pouring, I know you understand English. NEIN! NEIN!!!!
-- At about 12:01 AM, January 1st: Whoa, now I understand why they don't let us light fireworks inside city limits. But... it's so beautiful.
-- WHAT? Cuban cigars?
-- Seriously, enough with the alcohol...
-- Yay! Planes!
-- About 5 minutes after take-off: Oh right... we DON'T like planes...
(And that's about all I can handle for now.)
* Yes, I know I'm a horrible person. But I'm trying to be honest, for whatever that's worth...
UPDATE Luke said that it sounded like I didn't have a good time in Germany. I would like to clarify that. I actually had an amazing time. In fact, it was pretty difficult to leave...
