I thought this was leading to something deep…I wasn’t disappointed.
I woke up this morning and everything looked normal. I made coffee, got dressed and everything looked good, just another day at work. I could hear my father in the apartment below bustling around and going his morning routine, just like me, as we both prepared to go to work.
Just like every morning, I turned on the TV to an all news channel and lazily watched it as I made breakfast. It didn’t seem much of an exciting day, nothing much had happened. The Russia/Ukraina crisis went on, ISIS kept talking about conquering the West… usual, depressing, appalling stuff.
My husband woke up about thirty minutes after me, we chatted as he had his breakfast. It looked like a normal Autumn morning, with the sun lazily rising behind the condo in front of our kitchen window.
I was putting on my jacket before heading to the bus stop when the news that would have changed hour life arrived.
In Germany, near Marburg, a medical examiner a couple of days earlier had encountered an “anomaly” during a routine autopsy had found signs of electric activity and sensory response to pain in the body he was examining. The 54 years old deceased had been dead for ten days, according to the documents, and had moved as if trying to escape the scalpel.
I thought: what the hell, is this a weird episode of The Walking Dead? Grabbed my backpack and headed out.
It was a normal day after all, work called. A nice day buried inside a chemistry laboratory. My natural environment.
I loved my job.

I went to an Arab-American comedy night and there was a Muslim guy making a joke about being in high school football.
"I was hit so hard, I saw Jesus. Do you know how hard you have to be hit to see somebody else’s god?"
This is what jokes about religion are supposed to look like.
JUST FUCKING LISTEN.
THIS IS HALLOWEEN BUT NOT LIKE YOU KNOW IT

research things for fun
like you’re curious about something so you go read the whole wikipedia article on it and then read all the stuff the wikipedia article references and go to the library and read some books on it until you have all this new knowledge about a subject that actually has no real bearing on your life you were just kind of interested in something
this is the summary of my life
the fault in our stars movie seems a bit different from the book…

My first attempt at “artistic staining” of anything. This should be the abused t-shirt of a zombie apocalypse survivor that endured a lot, was attacked, splashed with zombie blood, fell in dirt and mud, washed it with whatever she had at hand and reused it again and again. Still wet. I hope the result is good once I apply the “fresh” fake blood.
