I want to say a big hello to all the folks that have stopped by since I was Freshly Pressed.
This is the first time I’ve ever been Pressed, and I’m pretty stoked about the whole thing. I have two things I wanted to mention, though.
Thing the first: My posts aren’t usually so oriented in geek culture as that last one. I do reference genre television and movies from time to time, like in this post over here, but most of the time it’s a little more general. I write about life in Germany, about my travels, about the cool things I see in other cities and countries, and about whatever happens to pop up in my head.
Thing the second: When I scheduled my posts for this week and next, I wasn’t counting on the influx of traffic that you get from being Freshly Pressed. I’m really not used to having a lot of traffic at all. Even my post about the European Dog Sled Championships got more views than my sci-fi post before I got Freshly Pressed.
I have a cool post about trains set to post on Monday while I’m in an airplane, but I’m not sure yet what I’ll post after that, because I generally only have one or two posts ready ahead of time. My expats-in-scifi post went up right before two insanely busy weeks where I’m not really going to be at a computer. so there might be a little bit of a lull in the next two weeks.
That being said, if you’re the sort of blog reader who doesn’t mind if a blog only gives you new material once or twice a week, I’m probably your guy. Please come in, make yourself comfortable, and have a nice cuppa tea! I’ll be back soon, I promise!

Waaaa! Well done! It really was a good post though. Sorry I missed you last night, but you’ll be here on the 21st, right? I am always up for a meetup!
Looking round your blog, its fun enough and the geeky posts are just the icing on the cake 😉
Still so cool you got freshly pressed!
As a very European individual, currently living in Dublin (as an expat, I suppose, if you want to get technical), I do find it really quite interesting to see an American perspective on things that I know quite well myself, and, to a certain extent, am familiar with. So I think that I’ll stick around to see what your perspective is on things I might very well know myself.
Also, in Zuerich, might I recommend either Die Giesserei or La Salle, if you don’t mind the typically Swiss prices. Or, if you want fondue, Fondue Stuben/Raclette Stuben (same owner, same website).
You’re famous! 😀
Congratulations on being freshly pressed!
Hey found you on Friday Faves, love the post and had fun looking back thru your blog – loved the dog sledding post “dont eat the yellow snow!”
Anyway I also got FP recently and I wanted to ask if I could steal your post idea above cos I have the same problems as you – got FP for a post style I dont normally write in and Im not the most frequent of posters either, life and all that.
Oh and congrats, its kinda cool and scary at the same time this FP bz 🙂
Congrats on being Freshly Pressed! 🙂
