this year the easter bunny is bringing something special

Rebirth

What a week it has been. I had this post lined up earlier this week but decided not to publish it because of the shocking events that took place on Tuesday. Somehow it didn't feel right to talk about fresh new beginnings amidst violence and death and terror. And yet, living our lives to the [...]

C’est arrivé près de chez vous (part II)

You think it will never happen to you, that it cannot happen to you, that you are the only person in the world to whom none of these things will ever happen, and then, one by one, they all begin to happen to you, in the same way they happen to everyone else. - Paul [...]

The Comeback Kid

  March, 17, one in the morning. Two months and a half have passed since my not-so-pleasant Christmas Holidays full of drama and only now I feel like the (not so) new year can finally begin. 2016, here I come! Ha! While I will probably never be able to fully grasp what exactly happened to [...]

It’s Oh So Quiet

Ah, that sweet sound (and the craziness!) of the nineties. It's been awfully quiet around here lately. Turns out, my Christmas Débacle was just the kick off of an entire season of Misery, capital M.

I mean, that has got to be the best title for a comedic series ever. (I secretly fantasize about using that line in [...]

We made it through the week! Hurray! Now, if that is not enough reason for you to S*M*I*L*E*, check out these: Instagram Husbands, you crack me up! If you are an Instagram husband (or wife, partner, random victim,...), you can get support over here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFzKi-o4rHw If you're going places this weekend or if you have [...]

C’est arrivé près de chez vous

English Het is nu een goede drie weken geleden dat onze Westerse Wereld even op zijn kop stond na de gruwelijke aanslagen in Parijs. Opvallend: de shock leek vooral betrekking te hebben op het feit dat de aanslagen in onze achtertuin plaatsvonden en zowaar werden bekokstoofd in onze geliefde - of verguisde? - hoofdstad.  Als [...]
