Yesterday the opening of my new business was the social event of C-burg. Well, not really, but it did go well. About 30 people came, including our current customers, friends, and "support people," such as our accountant, graphic artist, and web designer. A local reporter was there, but the mayor could not be there (he had to go to a funeral). However, the man in charge of business development for the city came and presented my business partner and I each a very nice bouquet.
As you can see, the office was in top form. The cake went over well. Germans like Betty Crocker. On the other hand, I went easy on the icing. I did not want any of our customers to go into sugar shock. I made 2 cakes, and only one was eaten. The German took the other to his continuing education class today, where it was also well received.
I did not take any pictures of the guests because I was busy meeting and greeting. Also, I do not want to post pictures of people without their permission (well, except my unsuspecting friends). Super German was in good form, filling glasses and washing up. All-in-all it was a success.
When I got home last night, I was finished. My entire body felt like it was sinking into the floor. I feel asleep while watching France beat up Togo. Unfortunately, when I got up this morning the migraine was back. I spent the majority of the day lying listless on the couch. I have no idea why this is happening. I have had migraines before, but never anything that lasted several days. I hope it goes away by Monday as I have a very long week ahead of me.
The Germany football win pepped me up. I have a new love. His name is Philipp Lahm. He is a quick little defender for the German national team. Super German thinks my crush is very amusing. I was talking about this with some people at the party yesterday. One of my friends protested, "Claire! He is so young (22)! He is fresh out of school!" I smirked. "I know. And they are usually so eager to learn at that age."
However, my love is fleeting. Lahm plays for Bavaria Munich, and it is a major point of contention between us. If Super German has taught me one thing, it is that Werder Bremen is the best and Bavaria Munich is evil (think of them as the New York Yankees of the German soccer league). Sigh. It is always something, isn't it?
PS Blogger is not letting me post pictures. Damn it. I will try again tomorrow.
