Speeders Beware

I should consider myself lucky, I guess. I mean, if the Croatian police officer with the fine penmanship could read my mind about what I was thinking at the moment I received my first speeding ticket in this really, really, beautiful, picturesque country, I'd be in jail right now. But I kept my cool. I …

#UnitedAirlines In Your Monopolies @ 30k Feet Below Laughter Of Automaton Galore Bigly Greatness

Hilarryus, dear worst-reader. Seriously. I'm laughing my ass off right now at #United Airlines gettin' in the newz. Of course, it need not be mentioned that more than ten or so years ago, I also got booted from a United flight. The good newz is I didn't actually get booted like this guy did. No. …

Twenty Bucks To Fly Across The Atlantic And Other Industry Antics Indicative Of How We Are So Thoroughly Screwed

No reason to be shocked. This flight, technically, I guess, has a "price" of "20.00 €". And why shouldn't it? Talk about a bargain. But then again, I did fly once across the Atlantic about thirty years ago--and for the life of me I can't remember the name of the airline--that costs somewhere around a …

Useless Eater From 30k Feet First Class Adoring The View Of #Trump2016 Rampage On…

As I've worst-said before, #americant doesn't deserve #Trump2016 but it has earned it/him. With that in mind, dear worst-reader, I really enjoyed reading the news this morn about the Bush family dropping out of the 2016 race. For that I'm forever grateful to The Donald. And here's my (ir)rational as to why I'm grateful. As …

What Will Be Missed: Brötchen Not Bureaucracy

Actually I prefer Mehrkornbrötchen but every once-a-once I splurge and have a (regular) Brötchen smeared with a minimal amount of Nutella. Minimal! The splurging on my diet, though, will change soon because in India there is no Brötchen. I'm sure there's plenty of Nutella. (Aghast! Short pause.) Oh. And. No! Bread Rolls are not a substitute for Brötchen. Remember: what …

Last Coffee Bean Bag Is A Telescope On Our Passage To India

Saw something strange this morning after what might be the last coffee bean bag I empty in #eurowasteland for the next few years. The count down has begun. 10. 9. 8... We're at around 7 at this point. The moving company is chosen. Vaccinations have been given. Dog paperwork fulfilling bureaucracies almost done. Our passports are at …
