March recap

by ada

Oh, well. It took me very little time to break my New Year’s resolution of never falling months behind with posting. Seriously, I don’t even remember anymore what I did in March, but fortunately I can look it up (now I know why I keep this blog: it has the function of my non-existent memory skills, haha).

So, according to this blog, in March I:

…contemplated 14th century minnesänger life,

Neidhart 27

…admired old clocks and watches:

…celebrated my hundred-and-sixty-sixth birthday:

…was waiting for spring for what it felt like another hundred-and-sixty-six years…

…until it finally arrived:

…discovered new parts of Vienna:

…spent an afternoon in St Pölten:

…and an another one in Klosterneuburg,

…where I visited the orchid exhibition…

…and saw some beautiful flowers arranged in rather questionable ways:

…met the Easter Bunny (-ies. All of them)…

Osterhasen Westbahnhof

…who brought some giant Easter Eggs with them:

Einstein was there too:

At the end of the month I had my spring holiday which I spent at home in Budapest…

I Martius am! Once first, and now the third

by ada

Now, with May just around the corner, I suddenly feel like it’s time to recall what I read almost two months ago, haha:

Erle Stanley Gardner: Perry Mason und der Tote im Rollstuhl – because I want Della Street’s life

Gabriel García Márquez: Von der Liebe und anderen Dämonen – because, once upon a time, I had brains used to enjoy Real Literature

Paul J. Frost: Elcserélt elmék – because, birthday book, featuring dogs

Antonia Fraser: Die Nonne – because a murder mystery amongst Catholic nuns is the best bedtime story

Erlend Loe: Ich bring mich um die Ecke – because I loved Doppler and wasn’t left disappointed by this book either

we like March, his shoes are purple

Because nothing can happen in this part of the world without the supervision of The Cat, including reading.

March is the month of expectations…

by ada

… that never come true, haha. I thought my intellectual life couldn’t go worse, but well, it did. In March, I managed to finish exactly two books or, well, actually only one and a half, because one of them I started reading already in February. And no, I haven’t been watching movies either. Not a single one. What I actually did in my spare time, I don’t even remember. I was sleeping it through, I guess. I wonder if I will ever be “me” again or I’ll remain this strange creature of compromises and indifference who I became through the depression, forever.

Another depression post for the most joyful day of the year, yep.
