10 Things I Love About Mimosas
Tonight Alice and Andy inducted me into the “I have seen the film 10 Things I Hate About You” club. If Alice’s wild gesticulations and facial expressions from the other day’s admission are rooted in reality, then I believe I am the last person in the Western World to have seen this film. Today was a brilliant Sunday. Andy came over and, no sooner had he arrived and we...
Vienna Really is the Best Place Ever →
Article raves about Vienna.
I apologize for the lack of blog posts the last few days. There has been a conference for fellow English TAs, organized by the Ministry of Education, the Fulbright Commission, and Teachers of English in Austria, taking place - of all places - at my school. It’s been nice meeting other TAs who I didn’t even know existed. I’ve also been working a lot in the evenings. Hopefully...

I have been asked to write a short piece about my life in Austria to be featured in the upcoming February Macalester English Department Newsletter. I promise to post the piece here once it’s “published” so to speak. Adam
Making Grandpa Proud
Last night I played cribbage with my buddy Andy. He had found an electronic cribbage board on the internet. All the years spent practicing in my grandparents’ kitchen must have paid off. I kicked his ass twice. Even skunked him the first time. I think I’m gonna try and teach more of my friends how to play cribbage. It’s a great way to past the time. If you want to find...
Tales from Hofer, Part [Can't Remember]
I couldn’t come up with the things I see happen at Hofer in my wildest dreams. Tonight I ran over around 5 pm to grab some paper towels. We were getting low and, as tomorrow is Sunday, the thought of going without them was too frightening a prospect to imagine. That said, got to Hofer and did what I always do, pick up more other random stuff. So, suffice it to say, a bottle of wine,...
Why are THEY friends?– Alice’s comments start to resemble my own as we stalk people on Facebook. Clearly I’ve rubbed off on her.

I submitted this great text from my dad to When Parents Text and they posted it! You’re famous, dad.
Oh You Know, That Thing You Sit On...
Last night on the tram Amanda and I overheard the woman behind us describe the movie Burlesque, featuring “Kristeeeenah Agaweelara” and, of course, “Chair”.
"Do they have bumpers in Austria?"
Last night we went bowling in the 17th district w/ my friend Andy. The first game we played I was terrible. But as the pitcher of beer emptied I got better. Won the second game. Andy still won two of three, though. I guess I’ll have to go bowling more often and hone my skills. It was a fun night!
