Review: The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 23, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

There are times when it is hard to tell whether a book is for children or for adults, especially when it comes to a fantastic tale revolving around children and other worlds within a world. In this work, Neil Gaiman has managed to intertwine both the fears and lives of a child with the almost […]

Twitter: A Short Guide To (Erotic) Wisdom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 13, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s still hard to imagine, but amongst the billions of Tweets sent out there are one or two which either make sense, or have some relevance to real life. There are some people who get over the urge to write ‘blah’ or describe their breakfast / brunch / Taco and put a few words together […]

How To Grab Attention

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 28, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

How many sites are there which promise you a date tonight or the chance to meet men and women in your area right now! ? How many people, as a follow-up question, sign up for such sites, which are always free, and honestly believe that this will be their way into married, sexual or any […]

Better Safe And Invisible Than…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 15, 2014 in Internet |

I still get asked what I look like, little messages, mails, comments elsewhere asking me to send out photographs of myself, and not always prime and proper photographs at that! I guess we live in a society, in a culture where the appearance of a person is far more important to some than what they […]

The Status Symbol Today

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 14, 2014 in News & Opinion |

There was a time, not all that long ago, when a status symbol was something which indicated a person’s position in society, whether they had money, fame or were well-educated. These material possessions were used to show others that this person had achieved a certain position in society, that they had a certain standing, moved […]

Review: Blue is the Warmest Color

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 9, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

It is a well-known fact that film makers, when they have a good book, take some liberties with the published work and produce something of their own, more suited to the screen, more suited to the audience they wish to capture. What works on paper doesn’t necessarily come across in the cinema, doesn’t have the […]

A Massive Discriminatory Step Back

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 17, 2014 in News & Opinion |

The Land of the Free. I wonder how old that all-encompassing claim is, and whether the USA will ever be able to live up to it. This Land of the Free which begs: Bring me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free. Fine, this inscription is on the Statue of Liberty […]

Are We Related?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 18, 2014 in Personal |

It’s a strange question, and one that I have received through mails quite a few times: are we related? We have the same family name, these people tell me, and come from the same country, so we might be related to one another. I guess it’s a bit like someone saying: hey, you come from […]

Review: David & Goliath

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 8, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

My first impression of Malcolm Gladwell’s book David & Goliath was that it is a Feel Good book, one designed for those who consider themselves the underdogs in society, at school, in the workplace, to help boost their morale, their fighting spirit, and give them hope for the future. Even the small guy, the one […]

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. […]
