Sex Shops, Girls´ Night and Thursday Trivia...
I really hope you guys are ready for all of this:)
I made plans with a friend of mine to go and see Memoirs of a Geisha. The book was great, so I really lwas looking forward to seeing it. We met and decided to grab a bite to eat before the movie and went into a coffee-place where we were ignored for about 20 minutes and marched out with a glare of disdain. On our way to the cinema we passed three sex-shops within a 100 meters of each other, seriously. Rules of Competion: a concept lost on some countries!
We bought the tickets, looked into an old bookstore when my phone started to ring:
Mom: "Where are you?"
Mom: "When you are you coming?"
Monika: "Where to?"
Mom:"It´s Girls´ Night at my place...starting in 30 minutes, everybody is on their way."
Monika: "I totally forgot, I already have tickets to see a movie, what should I do?"
Mom: "That is really your choice dear, we´d really miss you very much; it wouldn´t be the same witout you. Of course you should come, but it is entirely up to you!"
Monika:-guilt creeping all over me- "hmmm...I´ll call you back!"
So I send my friend back home - sweety, I hope you´ll forgive me and I see you Saturday-, made the ticket person give me my money back and jumped into the next bus home to MOM. I am glad I did. It was so much fun. All the queens of our tribe -the pic above features the newest addition- in one room :) Mom put such an effort into it, that I would have never forgiven myself, if I wouldn´t have shown up. She had candles burning everywhere, an entire dinner ready, the place settings ironed, and purchased all sorts of materials that we could use for our crafty-evening. I made that little orange thingy to hold my mobile phone. Now, while I am blessed with many things, creativity is not one of them...so everybody complement my accomplishment! And please have in mind taht I got injured while doing it :) The scissor decided at one point that it would be more red if it would go through my finger instead of the material.
Last, but not least...Thursday Brainteaser!
This monk’s abbey was located in Champagne, France, in the 17th century. He mixed different kinds of grapes together to make a bubbling wine, which is now called champagne. This particular kind of champagne is named after him.
