Call Me Cheap…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 23, 2013 in Personal |

I’d rather think of myself as being forgetful and blame the stress of the season. The thing is, I forgot one of those little things which make a difference, and have had to resort to a last-minute remedy. I forgot to buy wrapping paper and, of course, we have none in the apartment at all. […]

How Far Can You Go?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 22, 2013 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

What can you write on the Internet? What is acceptable for public viewing and what is in bad taste or, worse still, a crime? Justine Sacco knows, after a foolish – now deleted – Tweet prior to her flying on holiday in South Africa. The storm blew up while she was out of touch with […]

Fighting the Vent

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 21, 2013 in Internet |

Having posted on set of comments and opinion about venting on Facebook, I almost immediately find a new source of interest: venting which backfires and works too. Here we have a woman who vents about a company, and a company which replies in the form of the Top Dog. Guess which one comes out top… […]

Facebook and Venting

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 21, 2013 in News & Opinion |

Ever had the desire to just really let go and vent all of your frustrations out on the world through social media? You won’t be the first one and certainly not the last. The question is: do you actually do it? And, if you do, have you thought about the consequences of your actions? Take […]

Review: The Hundred Year Old Man…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 21, 2013 in Articles and Reviews |

It would be easy to compare Jonas Jonasson’s book The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared to Forrest Gump, and do both this book and Winston Groom a great disservice in the process. Whilst it is easy enough to find many similarities between the two, there are also many […]

Too Much Choice!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2013 in Articles and Reviews |

Ever had that problem of trying to choose just the right dress for an occasion? Ever sat in a store watching someone else try on one dress, then another, then another, then back to the first one again? Or have you ever tried finding just the right evening gown, cocktail dress or whatever by clicking […]

Timetables

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 19, 2013 in Personal |

It has been an interesting, but not, easy week. College is over for the time being and I can relax into the festive season with the promise of rain, but no snow. Is snow really something that we have to have at this time of year? Is it necessary to celebrate the season, no matter […]

Do The French Bathe?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 18, 2013 in Immoral Conversations |

I had a major problem traveling to France when I first set out from home to come here: I had this vision of smelly French people who are less than human. Where on earth did I get this impression from? Education is the answer: it is something which we learn in school, somehow or other, […]

Safety First!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 17, 2013 in Personal |

The festive season is upon us and everywhere we go we can see the bright lights, the expectant looks in children’s eyes, the sparkle of happiness. And the commercial aspects too. I doubt that anyone can have missed the full shops, the advertisements, the pressure to buy the newest, best, brightest toy, game, item (whatever […]

Serial Fires?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 16, 2013 in Personal |

Quite a while ago, maybe a year or so, I wrote about a house fire in a small town near here. A house on one of the main roads in this town burned to the ground while the owners were away for the festive holidays. At about the same time I mentioned another fire, in […]
