I had a 90 minute “layover” (what do you call them for trains…. stopovers?) at the Dresden train station and Burger King was the only place with a) a table to sit, b) an outlet for my computer and c) internet access. Turns out, the internet wasn’t free, but at least I got to charge my computer so more HIMYM* train marathoning could ensue during the next leg of my journey.
What healthy foods did I consume this time, you ask? Gebaeckener Emmentaler , which is actually not that unhealthy in comparison to what other kinds of BK monstrosities there are on the menu. Besides, this is a traditional Austrian/German dish so it can’t be that unhealthy (this is irrefutable logic, people). Well, eating 5 tiny pieces of G.E. (as well as drinking water out of a rectangular carton...oh, silly Europe) can only take so much of one’s time and without internet access, my options were limited. Therefore, the rest of the time was spent having a little vanity session; aka using my webcam as a mirror and realizing that no matter how hard I try, there really isn’t much stopping my hair from looking like a lion’s mane if I run out the door directly after showering. Eventually, I resorted to tying that mess into a knot on the top of my head so that when Piotr picks up from the train station, the first thing out of his mouth won’t be, “Should we buy you a hair brush?" (I can't remember the last time I brushed my hair...I just hate doing that.)
Oh, and I tried a Butterfinger heart for dessert and it was no Reese's heart, that's for dang sure.
*HIMYM update: Since I'm now in Season 3, I just watched the Slapsgiving episode...and had to re-watch it immediately upon finishing it. One of my top 5 episodes, I'd say.
