Yup, that was me, two years ago. Not languishing away in my room. So, because I'm missing Europe, I thought I'd share some of my favourite pictures I took in Paris and Berlin. Okay, so the rest of these pictures are from Berlin, actually. Apparently, I didn't scan as many of my Paris pictures.This one made my friend Justin (also a part of our group that went on the trip) to accuse me of "actually making Berlin pretty":
And this one is in the Neue Wache on Unter den Linden in Berlin (the "New Guardhouse" of the old palace). It is now a monument to the victims of wars, with a reproduction of Käthe Kollwitz's Piéta in the middle (another member of our group is looking at the statue):
That same group member also ended up in my picture of one of the remaining sections of the Berlin Wall (notice the word "Madness" on the wall), with the Nazi airforce building in the background, and a bunker in the ground (it's now has stuff about the history of the SS). I was playing with an imaging program that came free with the scanner, and came up with this:
Okay, I'm good now. Reminiscing time is over. Now I'll get back to The Salaried Masses by Siefried Kracauer (I'm found some good quotes from it, and now I'll find places to put them, in the thesis).
Realistically, I've had a good day. I managed to clean my room last night before I went to bed, and so I've been able to work in my room. And I was getting sleepy, and so I walked to the store on the corner to get my free Pepsi that I won from under the cap of another drink! It was a good walk.
I'm wearing: a fuschia tanktop, jeans, and was previously wearing a black cardigan. Barefoot, too.
I'm listening to: "Disc Drive" on CBC 2. (Yay, Jurgen Gothe!)
I'm domestic today because: I have a roast nearly finished cooking, in the slow-cooker. I'm cooking it in red wine vinegar, some sage and a bay leaf. I'm soon going to have to add some potatoes and maybe some vegetables, if I can find any.
