I feel as though my blog has suddenly become popular, as I'm actually getting comments! And since I know that I never check to see if an author has responded to my comment, I'll just answer my commenters here. That's okay, isn't it?
Jess- yeah, I was pretty proud of the "Great Office of God" phrase. I have my moments of wittiness. The German sense of humor cannot keep me down! *pumps fist into the air* And yes, Stammtisch at 8. And Lolle tonight, if you're up for it. Shall I pop 'round to you, or you to me? (I sound so British!)
Nicole - it always amazes me that it's almost winter for you! How cold does it get in South Africa? (I'm assuming pretty cold, as it's SOUTH Africa, but at the same time, I think, "it's Africa! how cold can it get!?" So please, enlighten me!) I, for one, am super glad that it's spring. The transitional seasons (fall and spring) are my favorite - not too cold, not too hot, just right! Plus, now everything is turning green and it's lovely. :)
