Take 347

7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
Ladies and Gentlemen, Hamburg is having its "Scorcher Week". Weather here is relatively mild all year round... (Read: I miss snow!!!) But, we usually get a week or so each summer of legitimate summer weather. We've got swimsuits and sprinklers on hand... with ice cream in the freezer. All will be well.

In the world of Disney+, we finally made it around to 101 Dalmations! Ok. Guys. Seriously. It's actually "One Hundred and One Dalmations". Also, it did NOT come out in 1992 along with Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. I don't know where I came up with that... but that's totally what I thought! I guess the release of the Glenn Close version (which I've never seen, by the way), was what kick-started the 101 Dalmations craze of my childhood (complete with Rolly, Lucky, and Freckles McDonald's Happy Meal prizes--anyone??). I had seriously no idea. 

So, we started watching the movie and Brian was enjoying all the 1960's names of the collaborators and artists... and I'm so confused why he's enjoying it. "What's so funny". Oh man. Not a 90's movie after all... It feels like I need to "Refile" my whole movie brain.

I remember in 2016, I felt like I broke the bank to save a few dollars on buying the 20 pack of Venus razors at Costco... I am proud to report that I have one razor refill left. That was a 4 year investment and I've never regretted it.

Does this make me looney/crazy??

We have a liquor cabinet. I like to keep it kind of stocked with random things for cocktails... and we usually have gin and bourbon for the base of those cocktails. Honestly, the cheap versions... but they still count.

Since we moved in, I've been annoyed that we have one bottle of liquor that's too tall for the cabinet: Luxardo Maraschino Liquor. Well, I'm very excited that I finally found a solution to my stray liquor bottle in another random cabinet: a new bottle. I bought a new bottle, poured it in, and VOILA! Success.

I was feeling so honored this week when a friend of ours at work told Brian that he's impressed with how much my German has improved. 3 days later, I saw him and he asked (in German) if Brian had told me of his compliment.

Umm, I had no idea what he said when he asked me that question.... So. Yeah. More work to do! LOL.

Do you know how there's all those kindergarten graduation ceremonies? I always scoffed. Now my kid graduated kindergarten and is about to start school (because the German system starts in 1st grade) and I'm all... weepy about it. Guilty as charged.

In other news, I'm totally ecstatic about receiving school information in English instead of all German. Color me lazy.

I hope your Friday is off to a great start! We're celebrating a birthday this weekend, so my Friday night martini was enjoyed while rolling out cinnamon rolls. Wish you were here!  

Happy Friday!
