Sometimes in a job interview, the human resources director will ask you, "What is your biggest weakness?" I would definitely say that my biggest weakness is that I feel the need to be all things to all people. This leads to me never being able to say no to someone in need of help. My second weakness is my controlling help, which results in my reluctance to accept help from others. I am sure you see my dilemma.
My blogging has not been so "faithful," as Grandpa pointed out. It is certainly not because I am not thinking about you all. I have also only been "skimming" the blogs I normally read. I have noticed, however, that many of the Expats are MIA lately. There is one simple explanation. We are all watching soccer (um, football?).
This has been the highlight of my week. Last Friday night, the German and I went to Hannover and saw Mexico vs. Angola. Here I am all decked out for my WM fever, including Angola T-shirt and beer.
The arena was huge. And sold out. 43,000 people. I think about 40,000 of them were Mexican and / or Mexico fans. Have you wondered what Hannover would be like with half of the population of Mexico? One word. Fun! Everyone was friendly and chatty. The game was terrible (a 0-0 tie) but the atmosphere was definitely a once in a life time opportunity.
