@Stina @andnowlights It was a really great weekend. It makes Mondays that much harder!
I had the SPENDIEST weekend in ages. Friday I babysat and made 50 euros, but I basically blew it all on Saturday night between dinner and drinks (and post-drinks pizza). Then Sunday was the Bratwurstmeisterschaft, where I magically spent another 25 euros on brawurst and beer, and then another 5 on beer and ice cream on the way home. But then Sunday night I translated a friend's resume and cover letter into German, earning myself another 30 euros, so basically I broke even this weekend, which is okay, but I was hoping not to spend all of the money I made :-/
@Stina Happy birthdayyyyyy!!
@Stina the best part is the cheesy middle-aged classic rock cover band, but free sausage is also awesome.
@andnowlights I accidentally buy shampoo instead of conditioner ALL THE TIME. Pantene Pro V shampoo and conditioner bottles look WAY too similar.
Tonight I am babysitting - + 50-60€ Tomorrow we are stopping at the hardware store for some things and possibly also Ikea, -30 €, and then a friend is having birthday drinks -20€. Sunday we are going to the 12th Berlin Brandenburg Bratwurstmeisterschaft, basically the HIGHLIGHT OF MY YEAR, sooooooooooooooooo I am pumped. That will also probably cost about 30 euros with all the beer and wurst, etc. So the whole weekend should come to around 30 euros, give or take.
As someone who has only ever worked an office job in Germany, I honestly had no idea that everyone in America was answering their bosses emails at 11 pm? Or even expected to? That sounds absolutely insane to me.

This basically sounds like my dream life.
@andnowlights I am a lazy girl and make my hollandaise in the blender. The blender is then disgusting and needs a deep clean, but it is foolproof. Blend 3 egg yolks and 1 tbsp lemon juice for a minute, then slowwwwwwwwly add 1/2 cup of melted butter while blending. Done.
