's wedding was the BEST WEDDING EVER and they really are a ridiculously adorable pair. Thank you both for such a wonderful evening, I enjoyed myself so much that I may have even committed dancing (dancing!
I never dance!). I also had a lovely time getting to know lea_ndra
and spes_unica who before Saturday I've only ever known as names on other people's LJs and were really awesome people. franzi1981
, I am so embarrassed that my introduction consisted of me blurting out hello and then stumbling away. If I had been more sober, I really would have tried harder!
and I managed to successfully navigate Frankfurt for a few days and avoided getting into too much trouble. We even escaped the human trafficking trade! (no really, we were in line for train tickets to the airport when this guy asked us if we wanted to share a car with him to somewhere like Essen, and our first thoughts really were - Taken
!) Aside from going through a lot of awesome German food, ice-cream and beer, we visited the archaeological museum, a Roman fort
who makes the best ever tour guide/translator, and the zoo. I won't bore you with all my zoo photos (and the Roman ones are all ones I only took for more Eagle art references), but here is ( a thoughtful-looking gorilla )
- Also this weekend I found out that a) it is not advisable to put contacts in after chopping up a massive amount of bird's eye chilies, and b) neither should you try to rinse your eye out with what you thought was just normal saline contact lens solution, but was actually the stuff with hydrogen peroxide in it. OW. I'm surprised I still have eyeballs left. But if you're trying to come up with a 28 Days Later
zombie costume on the cheap, it's very effective.
- Dear Germans, please feel free to take over the UK whenever you want. Häagen-Daz cafes at train stations? YES PLEASE.
- Goats! I love goats and I GOT TO PET GOATS. What lovely animals they are with their adorable beards, little butty horns and precious bleating noises. WHERE ARE MY GOATS goblin_dae
, I WANT MY GOATS, AAAAALLLLL THE GOATS.
- The wife reminded me just why I tolerate him and baked a huge chocolate cake for me to return to. ♥ ♥ ♥
