Beyonce: Making Your Ears Bleed

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 19, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It can happen to anyone, a slight mis-step and something goes wrong. For Beyonce, at her recent concert, it was an earring apparently caught in her ponytail which ripped her ear and then bled. She, of course, continued despite the injury and has earned both praise and some vitriol as a result. And, of course, […]

A Sad Day For Bacon

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 26, 2015 in Internet |

Never have so many Twitter journalists – and others – worked so hard to create a catchall click-through headline. For some of them, and you can check them all out on Twitter if you feel the need, it is more clickbait than anything else. The World Health Organization has issued a warning that processed meats, […]

Review: The Curvy Girls Club

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 17, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

You might just as well give up right now, don’t even think about it, don’t seek any remedies; retreat back into your hole, under your stone, and regret everything. Look at it this way: you’re over thirty; you have one or two children who take up all of your time; that baby-fat is there to […]

Sharing: In Sickness And In Health

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 15, 2014 in Personal |

I just love the generosity of other people, especially when they have something to share that you don’t really want, but have no way of refusing. By this I don’t mean that third toaster at a wedding, or the reindeer pullover Aunt Maud knitted for your twentieth birthday which fits one arm but not the […]

Selfies: Keep That Stomach Flat!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 15, 2014 in Absolute Hot! |

Ever thought about how much hard work goes into a woman’s appearance? How much suffering and stress to create the perfect image even for a short trip down to the grocery shop? We’re not talking about Wal-Mart here, but about those little boutiques, those special shops, the walk along the High Street on a summer’s […]

Jeans: To Wash Or To Smell?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 22, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Personal |

The first impression anyone who reads the advice given out by Chip Bergh – and others before him – not to wash your jeans seems like an ideal statement to make anyone grimace in disgust. The idea of wearing the same pair of jeans, without them having seen a washing machine, goes against our ideas […]

You Can Only Laugh

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 9, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

The Germans have a word for it: Schadenfreunde. The pleasure someone feels at the misfortune of others. Such a feeling didn’t quite come over me when I read the following story, but perhaps something akin to it. Of course, I don’t have the same feeling about such a thing which a man would have, since […]

Fighting Against Jesus

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 11, 2014 in News & Opinion |

A long time ago I mentioned a story featuring a live television interview with two members of the Monty Python team and a bishop. In this interview the bishop (correct me if I am wrong, but this is the way I remember it) recalled the tale of a group of missionaries who tried six times […]

You Eat What?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 27, 2013 in Personal |

Racism is a strange thing, something which is hard to explain but which, believe it or not, we all come across in one way or another in our daily lives. For me it is clear, I am Vietnamese-American and look it. So, I must eat Vietnamese food too, and the western diet is something strange. […]

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, […]
