I've been going on a comm-joining spree, and finally got around the reading all the profile links at [livejournal.com profile] bentolunch. I think I may have found a new obsession... As soon as I get to London I'm going to have a go at it, because maybe if my packed lunch a) contains sushi-like things and b) looks pretty, I might actually eat it instead of buying crap (which quite often I do even when I've made myself lunch, because homemade lunch always seems so boring.)

Hee!

So many cool things here - I've been doing some wandering this weekend and looking down side streets and such, and have so far found two Christmas markets (!!) and a tonne of cool shops that I definitely plan on using for Christmas shopping, when I have money... But yeah. I did find some pretty things in Butler's on Hackescher Markt that I couldn't NOT buy - firstly, my first EVER Christmas bauble - it's a penguin made of teasel!! Hee :) I plan on actually having a mini Christmas tree this year, since I'll be here until the 23rd of December, so I want to start collecting ornaments. Also they had penguin wrapping paper... so cute.

I also bought a muffin tray, because I'm making my amazing raspberry cobbler things again for the Filmabend on Friday, and you have to cook them in a muffin tray. They're sooo good - doughy muffin-y outside, with a mushy sugary raspberry filling. It's basically butter, milk, sugar, rosewater, and then frozen raspberries and more sugar for the fruit part. Mmmm... food. I made leek and potato soup too last night, because it was so cold here. Yum.

On [livejournal.com profile] mk_socrates I joined the comm [livejournal.com profile] bento_lunch, and I really want to start doing that sort of thing. Atm I just tend to take a bag of chopped up veg and cheese and stuff as lunch to uni, with some strawberries or something, and dried apple crisps. Soo tasty, cheap, and filling. I decided I needed to do something vaguely healthy here - my housemate (who is vaguely talking to me again. Sigh.) goes to the gym, swimming, ballet... loads of stuff. So does everyone here, it seems. I'm so crap with all that stuff, and I eat so much Bratwurst and stuff here in the evenings that I decided lunch needed to be a tad healthier than pizza-schnitzel-bread stuff from the Bäckerei. But the bento thing does look really cool, I love making and eating things like that. When I get my grant through I plan on buying some stuff and starting doing that for lunch. I found a fresh fish shop yesterday, so that's a start :)

Today's revision sesh with Dana in the park was actually pretty productive. Revising with someone else there who is pretty studious actually makes me want to revise, just so as not to embarrass myself, so I did about 6 full sides of A4 on Brussig's Sonnenallee! We sat in the park for a bit and then went to the Fat Cat and got coffee and sat there for about 2 hours. It was nice. And it's so good to have a native speaker there to explain words I don't understand - particularly when the only words I don't get are ones which she didn't know either! Does wonders for the self esteem, heee :)

I'm being so lazy at the moment though. I can't be bothered to cook tonight (or last night, or the night before, or the night before that...) so I'm getting pizza - AGAIN. It's partly just because I'm knackered, though - I keep getting tired really quickly (think it's cos I was ill for so long over Easter and then got no sleep during the play week) and I went back to work tonight, so I was out of the house for about 9 hours. Now I just want to collapse but I should finish off my work on Sonnenallee tonight.

I also have to audition for The Promise tomorrow (Scout band for the centenary) and I still don't know what to sing. The stupid thing is, actually they all know I can sing, because they've all heard my recordings of the songs they're using for the band, so auditioning is really pointless. If they don't find anyone else, they'll make me be in the band, unless they decide it's too political to have the daughter of the music organiser for the event in the band. In which case they won't. So they might as well take the decision without me being there! Stupid Scout Association. Guides are so much better :)

Speaking of Guides, I realised today how much I'm going to miss not going on camp this summer. It's going to be the first year I won't be on camp since I was 13. As I was walking back from Trev's this morning, it was sunny with a light breeze and it just felt exactly like early mornings in Iceland, when I stepped out of the tent and the wind came off the lake and the sun was shining. I definitely need to find a Pfadfindergruppe in Berlin. I wanna go on camp again! And be in Guiding again! And finish my warrant... oops.

Daria and me are going to Casa Blue next week. Yay, mojitos! And Brick Lane :) Hee.
