Things I Didn’t Need To Know (Lia)

Last week, I was at a party and we were talking about “The Lord of the Rings” movies and CGI and plasticine make up… a lively conversation, made merry with the consumption of a fair amount of Christmas cookies and Swedish Glögge (hot spiced wine). In amongst the conversation of elves and ogres and fairy beings and why they all seemed to have rather strange ears, someone told me a fact about growing old, that I really didn’t need to know. She said that other than hair and nails, our ears and noses continue to grow and grow throughout our whole lives.

I didn’t think this could be true, for it would mean that old people must wander around with monster ears. Yet, sadly, the bus rides to work this week produced a whole slew of examples of elderly with exactly this problem. Was I the only person oblivious of this fact? I’m trying to think what I can do with my saucer ears if I grow old, the gods willing, other than use them to prop up my Princess Leia hair piece. Do you have any suggestions?

tough luck. (Sara)

I have this habit of accidentally finding my Christmas presents either the month before or in December. I hate it, because I spoil it for myself and everybody else. Today, for example, I had to put my grandma’s toaster back to where it belongs and I saw one of my presents…. I knew it was for me, because it was a backpack I showed my mum. It was from a second hand store, and when I went there and the backpack wasn’t there anymore I was quite disappointed. Do you see what I mean? It’s so annoying. Grrr!

Poem. (Sara)

Lia and I were sitting in a train,

looking at the trees outside

looking at the people passing by

but then to my amazement and utterly surprise

a guy decided to stick his buttocks in my face.

I’m sorry people, I know the last part doesn’t really fit, but there just is no other way to explain the situation that occured to me when we were on the train from southern Germany to Lübeck. The train was so crammed, and people were trying desperately to get to their seats. That guy probably  just decided that I looked small and thought that I might not care, so he  let the people go by, and by doing this compressing his behind into my privacy. I was not very amused when he finaly left, but at least that was an icebreaker to get into a conversation with the people sitting next to us. So I guess there is something good to everything in life… Don’t you think so?

eagles again (kim)

Weeks ago i found a beautiful eagle feather on the beach.

Ever since, i’ve spent my walks eyes down to the ground, scouring the beach for another treasure.

On yesterday’s walk i looked up… saw a bald eagle and a golden eagle flying right overhead.

Note to Self: Treasure is not something you find, it’s something that’s given to you when you least expect it.
