2013 in first sentences of the month  
I'm in Hamburg with my family with some time to myself, so I'm doing the end of year meme, as every year. Here are the first sentences of all first posts of the month (excluding the book meme and wordless posts).

January: Over here, the weather has gotten really cold again, much to the delight of several of my colleagues who suffer from migraines alleviated by the chilly air and much to my dismay, because our car doors keep freezing shut so thoroughly that I can't defrost them enough to get to work on time.

February: Periodically, I browse the internet in search for werewolf books and most of what I find reads like a PSA for why it's a great idea to stay with an abusive partner ("Not his fault that he turns into a werewolf, it's the curse! He's not himself! It's just his violent nature that wants out!") or porn (really lulzy porn).

March: Crocky and I are going to Prague! [We ended up going to Paris.]

April: Spring hasn't quite gotten into the swing of things around here, but Crocky's tissue consumption certainly does mark the transition in seasons.

May: Creepy-crawly of the day: the common wasp, vespula vulgaris.

June: In less than two hours I'm going to be thirty.

July: Tal-y-llyn, where the sleepers lie in Susan Cooper's The Grey King. (Fire on the mountain, shall find the harp of gold; Played to wake the sleepers, Oldest of the old;), This book series may or may not have significantly spurred my love for all things Welsh.

August: I have this unfortunate tendency to pick things that I really don't want to do because I am scared of them and then do them.

September: The weather outside has started matching the feeling I've had in my knees for weeks: it's autumn.

October: Crocky and I went to Amsterdam on Tuesday and came back on Friday.

November: It was Crocky's sister Teddy's birthday party yesterday, or rather, one of them- this was the "queer adult edition".

December: I hope you get to spend some time with your loved ones and will have some time for yourselves, too, to wind down.


Hope you are all doing well, I'll catch up once I'm back home.

Cars II  
So. I've been there when my mother bought a car, but I have never had the pleasure myself.

Yesterday, we did.
