Sickness and bunnies

I started working last week, and this week half the office is home sick. Offices are such a breeding ground for diseases and we are all coughing and popping pills for our head ache and fever.

Yesterday I stayed in bed sleeping and watching TV, Frank was keeping me company and was nice most of the time, but not as nice as she is to Mr. when he is sick.

Prague - Saturday

The weather was still not on our side but we set out to see more of Prague, so practical with a small city center so you can easily walk around town.
We wanted to go to the Museum of Cubism but it had closed in September so we had to make do with the shop, I love the velvet bag!

Our destination, the tower made in imitation of the Eiffel tower.

Prague - Friday

We headed out for more sightseeing and went to Amoya, an exhibition of young art housed in a run-down palace right next to the Charles Bridge.

 The beautiful art deco shopping mall Lucerna.
We picked up some mulled wine to keep us warm while re-exploring the old square, this time in the dark.

Prague - Thursday

The promised sun was nowhere to see, but we defied the grey and foggy weather and went out walking around Prague.

We saw the Prague castle, the Charles Bridge, the Old Town Square and the astrological clock which took a fair bit of walking.
Then we dressed up to go for our 8 year anniversary dinner at Bellevue where we had 5 courses with matching wine and were eating for 4 hours!

Prague - Wednesday

I am getting behind on updates, a week to be exact, but I guess better late than never.
We arrived in the afternoon, got changed and picked up our tickets for the opera that I had booked. We were seeing La Bohème by Puccini, which was good but I prefer his more dramatic opearas such as Madame Butterfly and Turandot.
Cameras were not allowed, but Mr. discretely took some photos with his mobile, the Prague opera house is amazing.
And this is the National Museum right next to the Opera, passed it on our way back to the hotel.

The Confessions of a Bibliophile – The Picture of Dorian Grey

Last weeks read was a book that needs little introduction, Oscar Wilde’s gothic classic and only published novel: The Picture of Dorian Grey.
The plot is simple and well-known, how young and beautiful Dorian Grey wishes that his portrait would grow old instead of himself, and when he lives a life of debauchery the portraits reminds of each wicked act through disfigurement and aging.

The dialogue also provides some amusement, for example how Lord Henry expresses his famous seteiment that “no woman is a genius. Women are a decorative sex. They never have anything to say, but they say it charmingly. Women represents the triumph of matter over mind, just as men represents the triumph of mind over morals”.

The Confessions of a Bibliophile: Jonathan Safran Foer

Obviously my mother was a bit shocked about the gif in my last post, so I will keep this one very innocent and write about an author I quite enjoy reading.
I first read Everything Is Illuminated in Swedish back in 2003 and I have read it two or even three times in English. I was either crying or laughing, the letters from Alex are so cleverly written and the stories about the shetl are captivating and rather bizarre.
I can never remember the proper title of this book, even if I have read this one three times, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is written from the perspective of 10 year old Oscar, whos perceptive and reasoning is both relatable and outlandish.

Anja Rubik in Saint Laurent

I quite like all those mailing lists even if they tend to spam your inbox, the other day I received the following gif from Saint Laurent, so sad Hedi Slimane decided to drop Yves, I thought YSL made such a great logo.
