Dabbling in smartphone photography. Have no idear what I'm doing. Yet every once-a-once I nail it. Well, almost nail it. Street art from Spring 2018 Paris visit. -Rant on T

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

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

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

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 … Continue reading What Will Be Missed: Brötchen Not Bureaucracy

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

Doodle Of A Dream

Had a dream the other night. I think. Even though I can't draw worth a hoot, my best shot at an image of the dream is above. This dream started in the middle of a journey that begins at a red x (bottom left corner of the page). I think the journey was to the Red Sea … Continue reading Doodle Of A Dream

Deep In Me

Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science And What The Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves, by James Nestor At first it was difficult for me to share the astonishment and shock James Nestor expresses upon his initialisation to the world of freediving. I've been a fan and admirer of it for years. Ever since I was a kid I … Continue reading Deep In Me

Tommi's Dive Log

I'm a reef diver. They say reef divers are wussies. I'm also worst-writer. We know what matters more, eh worst-reader? Yet the waters are murky either way. Or are the waters full of spawn? Spawning is clouding my visibility. Can that be? I saw so many little fishies the other day that I thought the … Continue reading Tommi's Dive Log

The Doctor Is Not In

According to a few outspoken voices, it's been a slow month in Curacao. Can't say I'm disappointed. The fewer the merry-er, worst-writer always says. And as others say: good things come to an end. After ten days of too much sun and lots of scuba and no crowds, the hammer hits. We had two dives … Continue reading The Doctor Is Not In

The Teuton's Recipe

Visit winding down. Leave tomorrow on latenight flight. First time departing my beloved former home at 20:30 hours. So. With that in mind. Let me try to summarize this visit. I'm confused more than ever about being an expat, visiting (former) home. Even  though I've seen mother several times since August 2014 and death of … Continue reading The Teuton's Recipe
