End of the month

You probably ask yourself every day: why does she post all these random images on her blog? Well, they are not random to me. I feel, from the moment I see a pretty picture, the need to share.


So I'm reading about Foucault right now. Took the wrong class, was to lazy to switch to something more easy and now I'm stuck with a bunch of philosophers.
They have their own language you know.
But after three classes I'm starting to learn the
"Where is the station" and "Can I have two coffee" bits of it.

Another class I've been taking within this researchmaster, is called 'Historical Classics'. Which is awesome, because I've been wondering for three years which historians were considered The Classic Ones. Eventually we have to write 10.000 words (which is só much more than my BA thesis - crazy style) about a historian in our specialized field. As you can guess, I chose someone who is well-known for studying the history of Eastern Europe: Maria Todorova. She is Bulgarian and has done some groundbreaking work on the subject. I'm supposed to analyse 'Imagining the Balkans', and reading it is actually fun. You wouldn't imagine, but as soon as I wake up on a sunday morning I grab that book and read (or go out for breakfast, you know me that well already).

And a random, yet pretty picture:

Polar sunday

I love sunday mornings.
Usually I have a good saturdaynight party/drink/birthday/date/concert/... which allows me to stay in bed on sunday till at least ten o'clock (yes, that's late for me). And then, after we manage to get out of bed, get dressed and drink coffee, we run outside into the sun to get breakfast outdoors.
Seriously, is there anything better? 

This is polar bread, filled with smoked beef, tomatoes and horseradish sauce.
I really really really want to make this bread, once. Here's a way to do it!

I bought the (train)ticket and I have a whole month to think about the cute Parisian outfits I'm going to wear. Because ONE thing is certain:


Style: Volver


Okay, we're talking Penelope Cruz here, who can basically pull off any style. But that didn't stop me from wondering: how is it possible that these characters wear so many colours and prints at the same time and still look gorgeous? 
This is how you do it:

Gentlemen Broncos

The weird thing is, I haven't posted about Flight of the Concord's duo Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. Yet. That's because I want to do it perfect and most of the time, I don't have time for perfect. So, very soon I will show you some of their funniest performances - but first, it's time for a new movie. Starring... Jemaine Clement as the legendary fantasy novelist, Ronald Chevalier.
I can't WAIT to see it.

"Benjamin (Michael Angarano), home-schooled by his eccentric mother (Jennifer Coolidge), is a loveable loner whose passion for writing leads him on an offbeat and hilarious journey as his story first gets ripped off by the legendary fantasy novelist, Ronald Chevalier (Jemaine Clement) and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town’s most prolific homespun filmmaker."

Some stills of Jemaine, to get the fans siked.
