but how will they know we’re married?

I know! Let’s put a giant hat on our car consisting of wedding rings and little bride and groom dolls!

Ukrainians heart flags

Ukrainians (at least in Kiev) are all about flags.
having a parade? Flags!
need to protest? Flags!

How should i decorate this plaza? Flags!

If only there was some way to show the EU that we love them - I know! REALLY BIG FLAG!

something i saw on the street No.1


pretty pretty princess!

There is a…tradition?…unspoken vow?….something that married couples go take a photo by the church just up the street from me. The women here really like big puffy wedding dresses. Sometimes big pink puffy wedding dresses.

the mac hizzy

There is no Mac store in Kiev. There is, however, this totally legally sanctioned non-rip off store that surely only sells legit goods at completely reasonable prices and yes, I bought something.

the what drop?

The car drop, of course. I was dragged to this odd event by some friends. Ok, dragged is totally the wrong word.  More like as soon as I was told there were going to be two cars dropped from something in the Arena mall, I ran dragged them.  This radio station was having a contest […]

So i took the quickest shower ever, and washed my hair while holding my head over the tub. I […]

crap. it’s hot.

Holy crap is it hot. I just got back in town from good old Chicago, and I thought it was toasty there. And no relief in sight. BOO!

OK, so finally

I’ve only been here four months (today, in fact! woo!) and since my good friend Squeeze helped me set things up (shut up, I’m old, my vcr is blinking 12:00) I figure I’d best get to it.
So, ladies, gentlemen, internet stalker….welcome to chick in kiev - where you will find a daily photo […]
