Rain - 09/29/2010

It's rainy season in Ireland.

Actually, it's rainy season in Ireland all year 'round, but in September it's even worse. You can basically be sure that it's going to come down at least twice per day.

Which is great, actually. No complaints from my side. It's cool and refreshing and makes the city smell nice. Plus, we have a couple of trees in our backyard that smell great when we open the windows in the morning.

After a couple of years in places where it either didn't rain at all or where you had typhoons in the winter months, it's great to be able to go out and just enjoy the cool caress of raindrops on your face.

The only problem is my bike. The saddle absorbs the water, so everytime I get off my bike my butt is wet.

Internet Radio - September 22nd 2010

There are so many awesome things about being back in Europe that it feels kind of lousy to dedicate a blog to every single one of them.

Being able to get decent chocolate again. Being able to go on the internet with normal speed and without censorship.

But what I want to focus on for this post is... internet radio. Every workday I listen to the following stations: KOMO Newsradio in Seattle and WDRV The Drive in Chicago. Chicago is six hours behind and KOMO nine, which means I can listen to their nighttime programming in the morning.

It's great. It's a great way to get into the working groove. KOMO has great local news (which is kind of interesting to me because I spent a couple of months in Seattle nine years ago on an internship. The Drive has classic rock, much of which never made it over to Europe and is completely new to me.

If any of that stuff sounds good to you, check them out. You won't be disappointed.

A Well-Dressed Man - 24-08-2010

It's unbelievably hard for a man to find original clothes. Women's clothes can be beautiful, but the best a man can hope to do is to find a nice suit.

Which I did. An awesome, kinda shiny grey suit that will look awesome on me. And it's only € 140.

The Expendables - 18/08/2010

This weekend I went to watch 'The Expendables', featuring every action hero of the eighties and Jason Statham.

The movie was awesome; I highly recommend it. I had a big stupid grin on my face for the whole movie. Dolph Lundgren was the highlight; the man hasn't gotten older, just meaner.

Yay for me being back in Europe again and being able to go to movies in a language that I understand.
