After a mostly meh January, things are starting to get exciting again here in Berlin.
First, I wanted to share my new obsession with you.
Yes, that’s a flying garbage/recycling truck. Other teams might have a zeppelin, or something similarly basic flying around their arenas. Not Berlin. It’s massive. It’s detailed. It drops scarves on the crowd. I don’t even want to know how much it cost. It’s the stupidest most perfect thing.
Speaking of Berlin Recycling Volleys, they got some amazing news a few days ago.
Woopsy daisy CEV.
To be clear, they are hosting the MEN’S Champions League Final Four at the end of March. That means that Berlin is automatically in the final four. An incredible opportunity and accomplishment for Berlin.
Now for something completely different…
I liked these English language guides. British= red phone booth. American= 50’s style diner lady legs? I think I like it.
Which reminds me, if you’ve never checked out the Pinterest page devoted to the imaginary well-dressed child, Quinoa, you might want to take a peek. Equal parts snark and respect, the page celebrates the flawless and unrealistic style of Quinoa and her friends Boursin, Chevron, Hashtag, and many more.
On Saturday, we woke up to a sparkling white sunny day. I mean, sun? in February? in Berlin? Wahnsinn. At school, we let the students loose to create snowmen. They scattered across the field, and began rolling little snowballs into giant snowman bodies. The most ambitious required 4 or 5 friends to lift and push their snow boulders.
I know that I’m a Southern Californian snow n00b, but this perplexes and delights me.
And I’ll end with this delight…
Katy Perry’s less coordinated Shark friend.
Hope your week is off to a great start.
