Yesterday I brought an iRobot vacuum cleaner home. I told C about it some days in advance, and she didn’t object. We have enough to do without vacuuming all the time, and with 2 rug rats around, the floor needs a lot of cleaning these days. This morning we started it for the first time [...]

Not quite sure what you must have done to deserve the beating this woman got (in the green shirt). The girl in black tired to protect her, only to be pushed away by the attacker (the guy in white shirt, being held back by what must have been his friend). Not very manly to punch [...]
As mentioned in the post before, we moved to a new house recently. Our old one was a tiny row-house with little room and possibly even smaller garden. We really needed more space with one kid and another one on its way. We moved in about 14 days ago and we’re both pretty happy with [...]
Moved to a house recently. With garage, lawn and all. This evening C asked me where I put our 2nd vacuumcleaner she left in the garage. “I stored it under the work table in the garage – I thought it was a spare now?”, I replied. “No – Its for vacuuming the garage”, she replied. [...]
…being alone with 3 yakking Chinese mothers and their 3 screaming infants. Well now that I think about it, it’s either that or a warm gun.
At the party celebrating our son’s baptism I watched C happily munching away on a piece of watermelon. She suddenly stopped eating, and looked to her left where the Chinese guests sat. She then looked around to the other guests and said: “Why are only the Chinese eating?”.
Fifth in the series of ”What we did in Norway on our vacation pictures” and some thoughts I had a small discussion with C the other day. It followed one of my many friendly taunts regarding C’s love for fruit and fish. More precicely: free fruit and fish of course. She does love them bought [...]
The following conversations have been translated using my super powers to babelfish stuff like: Chinese, Danish, English, Chinglish, female thinking, weird eyebrow movements, physical pain induced by punching, telepathy and of course: decipher Chinese astrology. My wife and I borrowed a car (tnx Kojak) and wanted to take one of my wife’s friend’s daughter (let’s [...]
As I grabbed my shoes ready to go for a walk in the nearby park I said to C: ”Did you remember to lock the rabbit cage”? C replied: “Of course!?” with a hint of do-you-think-I’m-that-stupid-again in her voice. The incident 2 days ago was fresh in memory still. C had put all her potted [...]
C bought a few T-shirts for me. Unfortunately she is unaware of the facts all fatties know: bright colored shirts with horizontal stripes doesn’t do well with heavy dudes. So now I have 2 T-shirts that make me look even eehh… “stronger” than good is. Knowing my older wardrobe well enough, one may wonder why [...]
So…. I better reveal the result of my contribution to the German magazine. All talk doesn’t do it. After being asked to write something, I initially sat down and wrote a bloody book. Too long, but I kinda liked it. I also had to admit that it was too much for a column. So after [...]
Last summer C bought a tomato plant. Big was the surprise when my father told her it would grow to reach the ceiling before long. Bigger was her excitement, when he told her she should save some of the seeds from its tomatoes and plant this year. She never thought about that, and neither did [...]
…for becoming one year older. If you didn’t know it, I’ll tell you: 35 is officially the age where you’re considered old. At least, that’s what my wife apparently thinks. For my birthday I received a cute little gift wrapped a million times. When I finally opened it all up, it I must admit that [...]
If you’re a frequent guest of our house, you’d better start trembling. My old-new loafers/golfer shoes (whatever description suits them best) didn’t die as expected and went through a remake. If you read the old entry you would know that the misses “spiced” them up and transformed them into a pair of fashion killers instead. [...]
You know those married couples you see in the mall wearing the same clothes? The ones who are wearing the same shirts and pants? Could be twins, right? Do you know that it is mostly because the wife insists, and the husband is a complete wuzz with no spine? Well, that’s me these days (apparently?). [...]
Do you know where your better part is doing right now? Really? Then you should start worrying. That’s the first mistake I made today. I didn’t know what the misses was up to. She had a day off from school and I forgot to tell her not to kill anything. It was stupid. Really really [...]
Finally the much awaited sequel to Battle of Middle Bed is here. I bring you: The battle for middle bed II – The two pillows My patience has paid of. Now I have proof of my wife’s evil invasion plans of my side of the bed. Spot the problem in this picture (mind that I [...]
Preparing for bed I did the usual routine. As I strolled towards the bed to settle in, I heard C screaming: “NO! – you don’t sleep in that side of the bed anymore!”. Huh? – Had someone finally seen through my charade and recognized me as easily replaced? Should I grab my stuff and head [...]
On a follow-up on this thread, I remembered that boiled liver is not the only time my wife surprised me food-wise. She is able to bring a new dimension to what you can mix in the Danish food section as well. I specifically remember 4 examples. This one she pulled of during a Saturday breakfast [...]
How to trigger my cleaning gene? I often wondered if this could be done and if so, how? I’m a slob. I hate tidying and cleaning. I dislike washing dishes and putting things back where they belong. Putting away things that I used seems like a waste of time, even though all logic tells me [...]
