I’m not busy with some advanced QCD theories and quark is, in my world, still a kind of cheese Only ilGrisa would probably understand what I’m talking about. Or maybe not, at the end, I don’t even remember what technicolor is. I guess anyway that Coldplay, while writing this song, referred to technicolor movies instead of theoretical physics…
The last days were so emotional that I could assign a definite saturate color to each of them. From red to yellow, from blue to violet.
Is the color of blood, true blood. Like the new TV series I am following as suggested by both ilGrisa and my colleague Jeanny. Based on the The Southern Vampire Mysteries book series by Charlaine Harris, it details the co-existence of vampires and humans in Bon Temps, a fictional small Louisiana town. The series centers on Sookie, a telepathic waitress at a bar, who falls in love with vampire Bill.
Everybody knows I love vampires 😉 They are immortal, forever young and avoid the sun. Actually, I might be already one of them
They had forgotten the first lesson,
that we are to be powerful, beautiful, and without regret.
Anyway, the series is quite addictive, full of romance and mysteries and both cinematography and acting are really really well done! I wonder whether they speak with a typical Louisiana accent. They have definitively a strong one, especially the African-Americans.
Like the fruit. Or like the Netherlands of which I am truly missing Albert Heijn. No supermarket around my block offers the same shopping experience as AH. Kaiser’s is fine, Karsadt and KaDeWe are obviously over the top but too expensive, sometimes too small and not nearby enough for the daily shopping. But… but there is real,-. Usually too big for the city center, it is for instance in Spandau where I have been two weeks ago. real,- is for Germany what Esselunga is for Italy: a food paradise 😛 Don’t go there if you’re on a budget…
Is one of the main Xmas colors. This year I’m in a strong Xmas mood… One of the benefit of my relationship with Christian is that I cannot be lazy during the weekend. Since two weeks, in particular, we are spending a lot of time by strolling around different Xmas markets which are the main Berlin winter attraction. This is my fifth advent here but I don’t remember so nice markets! I almost don’t regret not visiting Scandinavia this time. Almost, because in fact I miss Stockholm a lot.
Anyway, our Xmas markets tour started one week ago when we first visited the Weihnachstmarkt am Roten Rathaus. This market used to be quite depressing, but this time has been improved a lot: I bought some Finnish honey there and I liked the skating rink.
Later we went to the probably biggest Xmas market in Berlin which is not in Berlin, but in Spandau The old town around it is a wonderful set.
On the next day we went to the one at Alexanderplatz which looks more like an amusement park. I had my ride on a roller-coaster-like attraction and I felt simply great!
Last Wednesday we went to the Hanukkah market at the Jewish museum: it is rather small and surprisingly indoors but very very interesting especially the stand with kosher chocolate and dates spread 😛 I love dates!
On Sunday we went to the Xmas market at the Schloß Charlottenburg. Amazing! The product were rather standard and quite pricey but the location was simply perfect and mesmerizing. A must see for all the Xmas markets fans 🙂 I’ve been taking a couple of pictures there, but I don’t think they truly represent the feeling of being there.
Is the color the trees don’t have anymore. Winter is definitively coming. Today the weather is perfect: very cold, thin air, very clean and sunny. I simply love it.
Last Saturday was very nice too and in the evening, together with Andreas, a good friend of Christian’s who was visiting during the weekend, we went to the cinema to watch Mirrors. The plot sucks but it succeeds in creating a very thrilling atmosphere. A nice movie, after all.
Because I have been blue many times last week. Different events triggered my sadness or melancholy… I’m just happy I am sorting everything out.
Like the sky in St Petersburg when I was there. Btw, I finally got my photo-blog-book: it is simply fantastic! I should have chosen a smaller font size for the text but it is overall a good product. The quality of the pictures is very good, the paper is amazing and very professionally bound. I can really suggest Blurb, especially if you are a flickr user.
It’s just my favorite color.
