I’ve finally succumbed to a cold after avoiding getting sick all winter so this week is quick links again. Have a great week unicorns.
Here’s your news for the week!
Well, we do root for them in all things, but right now, we were especially pulling for the men’s cricket team in the World Cup.
Hello friends! This week’s edition will be quick links as I’m dealing with a sick puppy.
If, despite my best efforts over the last few months, you still think cricket is not for you, let me introduce you to the Indian Premier League. Despised by the old guard who prefer their games spread over five days, and their trousers white, the IPL is the faster, louder and wackier version of the […]
Hello, we’ve got lots to cover, so let’s get started!
Last week, while scouting for ideas for my article about weird English things, I started a Facebook thread that proved extremely popular. Most of my German expat friends had a lot to say about taps, windows and a certain cultural obsession with WW2, but as the discussion went on, we collectively realised that some things […]

After only a few months, the Ashes are back!

Hello fellow unicorns. I hope the weekend was good for you. In my hometown, the high is still 90° F, but there is a cold front expected so it should bring the temperature down to 80°! Break out the scarves and the apple cider!
Hello, friends. How was your week and weekend? Good, I hope! The young Pakistani teen who was shot by the Taliban has been a prominent figure in the media this past week. Malala Yousafzai released her new memoir, I Am Malala, and was a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize (the award went to the group […]
Happy Friday! Let’s make it slightly more Eurocentric this week, why don’t we?
