Today was outstanding, all up until we got back to the hotel and I logged back into my work email. Nothing disastrous, but my whole mental list of all the wonderful things I was going to write about is now half obliterated in a cloud of general useless stress and I kind of want to cry about it. I know it’s impossible to work a nine and a half hour day in the lab and then catch up on eight hours worth of stuff I would have gotten done if I were in the office, but I’m so not used to this. I know I’m lucky to be here – I’m not complaining. Wait, yes I am. Okay, let’s move in the other direction….
- Creme fraiche (yeah, that really needs the special characters but I don’t have the mental capacity right now to go after them.)
- Eye candy in the form of several young pretty German men grilling sausages (sausage party! ha.) in the hotel courtyard after work.
- Making friends with the hotelier’s puppy.
- Stinky French cigarettes. Yes, all cigarettes are stinky, but the French make ’em stink oh so good.
- Wiener schnitzel
