I should reconsider naming Frivolous Friday. At least for today.
On a very non-frivolous note (at least to me), the Freund and I are no longer together due to, to put it in short, issues of timing. This, for me, makes it all extra tough as I’ve never been through a break-up that involved an outside issue instead of an absence of feelings on one end or the other. I’ve debated evening mentioning this on the bloggy, but since it is the sole thing that has been on my mind this week, I somehow cannot leave it out. Not quite ready to pour my heart out, but I’m very sad, yet also OK.
On a more positive note, this split reminded me how many loving, compassionate people I have in my life. Thank you to those, entertaining me, listening, and reaching out in one way or another.
Now, onto more Frivolous Friday appropriate material.
AlexButts.com no longer directs to my blog, but to a personal website/profile/resume I created. Forever, I’ve had intentions to use the alexbutts.com domain for something else and working on it became a great, productive distraction. It’s still not quite where I want it to be, but I’m happy with the progress and domain use.
I love those nights that I go out with only €20 in my wallet so I won’t spend anymore, and then someone who owes me money pays me back so I have more cash and decide it’s OK to spend that, too.
Every Monday night in Karlsruhe (and other cities in Germany I’m sure as these are chain restaurants), Enchilada and Lehner’s host a cocktail casino night, where you roll a die and the # of your roll is the price of your drink. Before rolling, my friend Ankur declared that I deserved a good roll and this will determine whether there’s a God or not. I usually hate declarations like this, but as it wasn’t particularly serious, I went with it, and wouldn’t you know, I rolled a one, and thoroughly enjoyed my €1 mojito.
A couple FFs ago, I said I would no be watching any new TV series. Well, that lasted a solid 3 weeks and then I caved and began “Game of Thrones”. I am still not entirely into it and feel lost a solid 50% of the time, but it’s keeping me entertained.
Summer is over here. It’s cooled off and the heat ain’t coming back. I am slightly depressed. I packed up my shorts and pulled out the sweaters. It does make for much nicer sleeping conditions in my room though (trying to think positive). Goodbye to the shortest summer ever – thanks a lot Germany.
SPOILER ALERT (re: Pretty Little Liars)!! I just don’t buy that Ezra is A. It makes zero sense. For starters, why would he get himself fired himself from TWO jobs? However, I can see it adding up the other way, too. Like when red coat was at his door two episodes ago, maybe she wasn’t spying, but trying to plan. Maybe he was the older guy Alison was dating that summer, and when he tried to kill her and failed, he is now after her to finish the job. But still, I just don’t believe it is him. Plus, there are too many episodes left in this series for them to reveal it already.
Lastly, I am now offering paid sidebar spots. This blog’s gettin’ real, I’m gettin’ (more) serious, and excitement looms. I had a blast doing the free sidebar spot shot-outs, but onto bigger and better things. First come, first serve.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend… I was going to Switzerland, but now I’m working. Wah.
