So I'm running low on yarn..and I wanted to buy some more today, a very simple task one might think but Germany hates me on this particular day of the week. Because Sunday, although a very traditional day of relaxation and rest in most western cultures, is triple the pain in the ass in Germany than it is in the U.S. Why? One may ask? Because EVERYTHING in Germany is closed on Sunday...everything...not even so much as a children's craft store (which I wouldn't go into anyway because children frighten me). This is a hard truth I have been facing during my last 6 months in residence here because 24 years of American culture of everything still being open on Sundays but just for limited hours, is still engrained into mein kopf. But there have been many times where I forget to go grocery shopping on Saturday, o.k. so I think I can go on Sunday, nope...not gonna happen, so be prepared to eat kiosk food or leftovers for the whole day if you dont remember stuff like this. I should really set an alarm on my phone every Saturday, to go off and remind me to go buy enough food to get through Sunday, or go buy the color of yarn I need to make myself some mittens because it's 4°F outside and I would LOVE some mittens right about now!!! But no, Mr. Germany and it's protective labor laws say I must wait until Monday, So I shall sit here, with my cold hands and watch movies *Sigh* OH! I almost forgot, here's pictures of the hat I finished today!!! (It looks girly because it's for my fag hag lol) It's just a simple stockinette hat with a rolled brim, but I learned to crochet last week and did a flower to add some extra flare :-).
