One day Anni was twirling and singing one of her original compositions.
"It's my gift!" she declared.
Dizzy, she fell with spectacular gracelessness.
Laying on her back on the tile floor she began flapping her arms and legs
as if she were making a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.

excuses excuses

I should also mention that we do not have internet access in our apartment, and so my commenting elsewhere will likely be sparse (and I will have so much catch-up reading to do when I get back home). I also forgot to bring a book (egads!) and the library down the street from us is strictly a children's library, so I suppose I will be a Janosch expert by the time we get back home.

yes, there are bookstores in Germany. No need to get all snarky! (Is "snarky" the new hot word? I always feel awfully cool when I use it.)

It´s a shame that Berlin is a whole day´s worth of drive from here. I have more than enough books and a kid who´s really bored.

Is your weather as bad as ours?

PS. Snarky´s been around a few years but it´s still fairly rare. I first read it in a washington post column.

Yup. Rainy and cold. Well, the sun is out today so maybe we've turned a corner. I'll email you our phone number tonight (I'm about to lose battery power any second).
