New Pen

My favourite Japanese pen (unavailable in Germany) that I'd been using nonstop for the last 6 months ran out yesterday. I knew it was going to happen eventually, but I was pretty bummed all the same. Still, buying new pens is always nice and using it for the first time is always kind of special.

dOCUMENTA weekend

And I'm home! End of the dOCUMENTA weekend with the family!

I'm just very, very good at pretending. This applies to every language I (don't) speak.

Happy Sunday!

For all the people who know me in real life and thought I was a classy kind of girl, I'm sorry for deceiving you.

So far so good

All is good in Palermo. Aside from two elderly Japanese tourists and three Chinese shopkeepers, we seem to be the only Asians in the city. Lots of Germans, though! And lots of seafood and pistachios.
