Yesterday we had a party at the house. It was just coffee and cake; I made Red Velveteen Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World and they were well received... probably because no one knew they were vegan. I tried to do a little socializing with the adults (Am I one too? I never know.), but I got bad, invasion-sort-of vibes upon entering the dining room. So I hung out in the kitchen for a bit and ate some olives. This one woman soonafter walked in with a few dishes and I told her I could help. She responded with something like, "Oh yes. You do the dishes here, don't you?" thereby infering that I'm not a family member, but a Putzfrau. I laughed really loudly to hide my humility and to show that she was quite wrong, from my perspective, at least.
Then I tried to hang out with Susanna and the other kids, but the girl wouldn't have it. She just stared at me accusingly when I tried to join. What is with kids today? I saw them later all crowded around a computer and a Gameboy. People don't go outside anymore except to walk sometimes.
If you couldn't tell, I'm entirely sick of my job and am currently researching the process of getting a German visa so I can work and live here semi-perminantly. If anyone has any helpful info or strings they could pull, I'd love to know.
