Oktoberfest guest post (!)



If anyone out there has been wondering what good ol' Eurolush has been up to since the move from Europe back to the US this summer, this blog post will update you on just that very subject. (If no one's been wondering--and you have no idea who Eurolush is--know these things: she is someone who discusses herself in the third person. She has no concept of portion-size. She has eaten her weight in pastries. She takes gulps from the cup of life/glass of beer. There.That's all you need to know.)




Really, though. Let me assure you all that, I, the-artist-formerly-known-as-Eurolush, have been keepin' it real back in the good ol' US of A.



As you can plainly see, Mr. Lush and I are acclimating well to our new lives in California. Together, we're embracing our new environs, fitting in as best we can, and leaving all things "Germany" behind.

FACT: You can take the Lushes out of Germany, but you can't take the Germany out of the Lushes. NEIN! So don't even try.



My trusty sidekick, Tex, is also here to report in that life in Northern California is, while not quite as interesting as life in the German countryside, quite nice. There are nearby parks to visit and a big backyard (complete with squirrels.)

All in all, the Lush Family is doing well. Life is good. We are happy.

My old blog is still up--and occasionally I visit it to remember what I once had. It's bittersweet, really. But I'm moving on. Slowly but surely.




Wherever you are, I hope life has been good to you, too. I wish you happiness and health--and all the best in everything you do.


Love to you all.


XX E


PS-All photos from Saturday night's Oktoberfest here in our little city--where Mr. Lush and I tore it up real good, so to speak.


PPS-I hear there are lots of mushrooms in these Northern California forests!

You Lush's rocked Oktoberfest - are the new neighbours just a little bit scared of the new kids on the block? xx

I don't even know where to begin.

That woman needs her own blog.

This woman looks familiar. But the blonde anchorlady hair is throwing me off...

EL! Miss you so much. Welcome back to the blogosphere! Thunderous applause.

I am relieved you are still drinking hard.

Just goes to show you can rock a dirndl on the other side of the pond too. You must check in via Eleanors site again so we don't worry too much about you in your new 'foreign' surroundings.... Like we should worry.

It was on a WHIM--A WHIM, I tell you, that I clicked over here today. Thank God Tex is adjusting to stateside living again. Eurolush, I always knew deep down inside you were a blonde.

Hello Eveyone! So nice of you to stop by Eleanor's place and send a shout out to yours truly. One look at all these comments and next thing you know...I be cryin' me eyes out! (Not really--but the drama works here. As does a rich Irish brogue. And a Guinness?)

I miss you all! Thanks again, dear Smelleanor, for the Elush love fest. It really lifted my spirits!

Hugs & kisses to you all!

Love, E

AH! I sent it twice! Look at all the comments piling up in Eleanor's box on her Eurolush post...HALF ARE FROM ME. More than half? Oh, dear.

XX, E

Lushie, you cannot -- simply CANNOT! -- put up one little post and then run away. We, your loyal fans, will not permit that. Do we have to find you in NoCal and pressgang your little fingers to the keyboard? More, we want MORE!

(Did I scare you with all that demanding? Good. Now get back to blogging ;-) )

I hope you can still doing this. I mean, posting and searching useful things to share. I really appreciate this kind of information. The blog isn't bad, but you can change the style to written.
