Did anyone else just start singing the GLEE mash-up song when they read that title? If you did, I am very proud. I promise, more of my Gleekiness coming up soon.
First of all: Happy Fourth of July!
Oh goodness, so the past few days have been off of the record a little bit, food wise and other pictures wise because I’ve been so busy! Exams, World Cup Extravaganza, Dating!. It’s all been mushed into these last days, but, before I go into detail, I have to confess something to you guys.
I have never, not once, been in the US for the Fourth of July. Is that a crime or what? Oh wait, I just remembered I was there last summer, but I got my wisdom teeth out the day before so I was out of it and didn’t really know what day it was. But it’s okay, because I spent the day with some of my American friends and we had a grill party! And sang the National Anthem. It sounded pretty fantastic. But I can tell you, that after a breakfast of iced coffee and an Allos bar, my chicken burger (I forgot to take a pic!) was delicious!! I hardly ever eat beef, so the chicken was topped with lots of tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, and ketchup. So. Good. And for sides we had a variety of salads, from potato, to pasta, to lettuce-y salads. And watermelon, courtesy of moi! I have a fun picture I want to post, but I have to wait until my friend sends it to me! Then you will see all of our American Pride!
Another confession? Once again, for about the fourth (+) time in a month, my voice is hoarse. (Consider yourselfs lucky that you didn’t have to listen to me singing the National Anthem… it wasn’t pretty.) It’s all this World Cup Madness!!! But really, can you blame me!? Another 4:0 win for Germany!!! What is up with these four goals in almost every game? Whatever it is, I LOVE it! And I’ll tie my next confession in right here: soccer player’s have the BEST bodies. It’s true. Wonderful. I don’t understand why soccer isn’t a more appreciated sport in the US, even though I confess that when I am there I hardly watch it either. But it is so fun!
Where I watched the game!
Another confession. My eats lately have been less than blog worthy. I need to get back on my game. For example, although I was full tonight after that burger, I went on a short walk to the German Parliment, Reichstag, and Brandenburger Tor with some friends and we decided to stop at an italian place. The pizza looked so good that I HAD to order some. While most of it is now in my fridge, I couldn’t resist a bite of this baby, fresh-out-of-the-oven. Pesto and Spinach topped with a heap of fresh tomatoes. Tomorrow when I re-heat I will add some of my basil!
See, I was happy!
Next confession: I miss air conditioning! I thought I was a tough cookie when it comes to that, but I’ve succumbed to sitting around in minimal amounts of clothing attempting to “study” and wishing I could just sit in a cold bath all day long.
My last confession. I like a German boy. Maybe my dream of finding a fellow German has finally come true. Minus the fact that I leave Berlin in less than two weeks, but let’s not think about that. Let’s think of the fact that maybe, just maybe, he may like me too! He payed for my drinks last night, so that’s a good sign, right?! Do I sound like a middle schooler right now? Probably. But it makes me smile! Oddly enough, when we first met, I didn’t like him at all, but we’ve been hanging out, and maybe it helped that we were so happy that Germany won last night and after a few drinks everything seems better, but it was just so fun!
Now, since I’ve spilled my heart out to the blog world, what are your confessions!?
I hope everyone had/is having a wonderful Fourth of July!
