Busy busy busy

No time for blogging - just got back from traveling to Munich, Vienna, and Děčín over the last 2 weeks - more on some of that later. maybe. This week will be all writing to get a paper finally resubmitted.

But here's something:
Favorite German word of the month: angrillen
This is a verb that is used in reference just to the first time you fire up the grill in the spring for the new year. how sweet is that? Like 'wir haben gestern angegrillt'. Or 'wir grillen heute an.'
I opened the grilling season for myself officially I guess when my friend Amy from Brighton was visiting and we scored some homemade bratwurst - lamb and standard variety - from the local butcher, and Amy hooked up some homemade kartoffelsalat to go with them. I cannot begin to explain the difference between these bratwurst and the store-bought variety (even here in Germany).
