Berlin’s The Wyld or What happens in Vegas should totally stay in Vegas

PREMISE

Sometimes I put myself in situations without being fully informed on what they actually are. Clearly, I haven’t learned anything from the time I went to see Dancer in the Dark and expected it to be a Broadway-style musical about female empowerment.

That lazy shallowness is most certainly the fil rouge of my not very intricate personality and also what led me to accept a ticket to The Wyld, Berlin’s newest shiniest mega high budget show, playing at Friedrichstadt Palast.

Of course the following conversation is also to blame:

– Hey, you wanna come see The Wyld?
– What’s that about?
– Like, The Mummy meets Alien meets Fame.
– ….
– They have trained poodles. One of them is orange.
– OMGYES!

I mean, how do you f*cking resist to poodles?!

Keep your friends close and your enemies’ closet

Sometimes miracles happen.

Not stuff like resurrecting the dead or being able to lick your own elbow, though. Nothing like that. I’m talking about those everyday gestures that surprise you in their simplicity, like a selfless act of kindness coming from someone you don’t expect.

Take my neighbour, for example.

She’s changing the furniture in her flat and instead of throwing everything away she’s decided to donate her old (but still respectable) closet to whoever wants it.

It warms my heart, if I think about it. Read More

It totally looks like they’re kissing if you don’t zoom in – my second day in Iceland

On a regular work day in Berlin I give myself 15 minutes from the time I open my eyes to the time I step out of the house.

If I weren’t in a hurry I’d probably have time to make a coffee and sip it while looking out of the window, although it’s usually too early and too dark to see anything.

If it weren’t dark or early I would then be looking at thick curtains hiding people’s morning routines and makeup sessions, arranged breakfasts and indulged showers from the building opposite to mine.

In Iceland I looked out of the window and saw this.

It totally looks like they’re kissing if you don’t zoom in.

So yeah, Icelandic mornings were generally exciting. The stress of moving and sleeping every night at a different place was plenty compensated by the fact of having breakfast every morning at a different place, even though I always tried to refrain from eating too much ’cause I had a side-mission to accomplish.

[Quiz] Which Dirty Dancing Baby are you?

Warning! This is not Buzzfeed. If you wanna take this personality quiz you’re going to need a piece of paper and a pencil to note down your answers, like real men (and women!) do. If you’re a lazy bum, just go on Buzzfeed and find out if you’re a bad person (which you are, if you’re leaving this page).

I recently found out that my boyfriend has never seen Dirty Dancing and a part of me died forever.

The only thing I can do is honoring this undiscussable masterpiece and its protagonist with a quiz.
