12 von 12 / 12 on 12th of May 2012

OK, I won't start this post crying how it's possible that we have already May (although I can't believe that 2012 is almost halfway through) as I am more than happy that April is over. I managed to leave some of the crap that was wearing my down behind and I feel much better again. So this is what May 12th looked for me...

I woke up after way too less sleep but right in time to open the door for the man from DHL and accept my delivery...

After a quick shower I left the house to run some errands. First stop was the thrift store...

I hit the drugstore where I gave myself a free manicure at the essie test area and found a new favorite color: Cocktail Bling - a great blue-ish grey. Unfortunately they had only this one bottle on the test table and none in the essie rack. Afterwards I went to two supermarkets, to the Turkish supermarket where I got some greens, fresh garlic and pita bread and to my favorite Greek where I bought some Feta and spinach...

I bought some sour cherry necar at the Turkish supermarket and learned that sour cherry nectar is sour. Verrry sour! After six stores and a quick detour to feed my Dad's cat I was hungry and tired and finally heading home...

I made some quick tomato salad because I haven't eaten anything yet today and took an extended nap to make up for the sleep I missed at night...

In the evening I prepared some Borani (spinach with yogurt), tuna salad and Feta with homemade Chili-Olive Oil for dinner...I also made Hummus for the very first time but ended up not liking it...

Frage-Foto-Freitag / Five Fotos on Friday with cinemagram

OK, today I cheated at today's Frage-Foto-Freitag. I didn't take photos, I took cinemagraphs. Yesterday I discovered the cinemagram App* and instantly fell for it. I've been a huge fan of cheesy animated gifs since I started working on the internet back in 2000 and I'm happy to see they are back now. The quality of these is pretty poor but it's a fun way to share animated images. If you want to see really, really, REALLY beautiful cinemagraphs, check out Jamie Beck's and Kevin Burg's masterpieces at cinemagraphs.com.

*cinemagram is a free app and like instagram for animated gifs. My username on cinemagr.am is Frau Haselmayer (well, I guess that's kind of obvious)... Add me! I'd love to see you there...
