So whilst writing up that dahhling post about clutzyness and feeling mediocre again last night I had this sudden very overwhelimg urge to just launch the newly refurbished site NOW, and barely withstood the temptation. I am proud to say there are only details left to polish to an extremely glossy finish. For blogs made by moi, at least.
Anyway, here’s a non-sneaky peek:
But alas, there are still a couple of things that do need looking after, er, over, like my fridge, which is fearfully empty yet again.. ah, and wouldn’t it be nice to be able to launch the new site on the 22nd, the day on which, two (!!) years (two exclamation marks, one for each year. Yeah.) ago this here little olde weblog came into full existence.. (meaning: it was there quite a while before, put kind of in hibernation, or still in the womb, waiting to hatch. What the hell, in its litt’o mummy’s womb waiting to be born or in its egg waiting to hatch. Whatever.) Um, pretend those brackets didn’t happen.
What I was meaning to say: This blog will turn two in four days, and on that occasion I am very much looking forward to introducing its new little sister. Its little, immature, green and maybe sometimes kind of rude little GERMAN sister. Because I think that’s what’s been missing. A chance to rant in German. Because it is, after all, my mother tongue and I do speak and think in German more or less all the time lately (sadly? I don’t know). Consequently I also get mad in German. And Laila, who really was my little sister once, will be, and actually is already, the voice I want to give to my anger at whatever big and not so big shit life hurls at me. Because it’s coming steady and fast these days, not even necessarily from “outside”. And it’s what makes life interesting, so hey.
So now I’m stumbling over closing words again because I feel like I should say something like “Hey, I’m looking forward you, new readers I’ll gain instantly when my blog looks exactly the way I want it to!” or “to start something new you first have to finish what you started.. a while ago..” (???)
But yeah. I guess I’ll just leave you with:
See ya. Write ya. Read ya. Hear ya. Soon. Lalala.
