Do You Have A Blog???

I. Am. Famous.

I walked into the new hire welcome to EWR class earlier this week to introduce myself and welcome everyone to the Garden State. It was so exciting to see the new hires and to have the opportunity to talk to them. The next thing I know a woman in the front row was like, " do you have a blog?"

I've never been recognized from the internet before! It was pretty cool!

I told her that I was indeed TheLysser, and told gentleman questioner to google it.

I was a bit taken aback. I knew I had followers and fans, and that my friends read my blog all the time to keep up with my fast paced, whirlwind lifestyle. But to meet a stranger who knows me?! It was pretty cool. Maybe it'll be like that when I meet TheFlyingPinto ;)

Ich wohne in Irland.

Last night, I dreamt I lived in Ireland. I think I need to start flying soon.

Four more days of teaching this month, 10 for November (the other 6 events are training), and then I'm hitting the friendly skies in December.

And possibly January.

Do I hear February??? ;)

German and American Cultural Differences

Carousel in the Englischer Garten, Munich, Germany

Caro-Suess-el, Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios, Florida

Notice how the only similarity is the sheer look of joy on my face ;)

"Be Yourself" PSA with Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj

Such a wonderfully comedic message about being true to who you are from my bestie in the 8th grade. And I FINALLY figured out how to share videos on my blog. Winning all around.

I was on the fence for quite some time about whether or not I would be attending Oktoberfest this year. Its one of those bucket list items, something that everyone should experience and I just wasn't sure whether or not I could make it happen. About a week before we left, the instructors had training and were all together for lunch and I had brought the topic up for general discussion. One of my collegues said she'd be more than willing to go. We began researching flight loads, hotel rooms, booked one 24 hours in advance, got on the plane Sunday night and were drowning in Hofbrau liters Monday afternoon. Win.

Oktoberfest and this mini-impromptu vacation was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. A friend of mine recently pointed out that I can fly anywhere, for free. I don't take advantage of this enough, nor do I always keep how ridiculously amazing that is in mind. I'm so thankful for an amazing career that lets me do things like go to Munich for two days and drink my face off. My friend S and I had an amazing time. We drank and went on all the rides Monday, did the Mikes Bikes tour Tuesday (which is a MUST for anyone who's never been), had a few more beers and were back on the plane Wednesday morning. First class both ways, of course!

Just before entering our first tent - and to the left, the best photo bomb EVER

One of my favorite beers on a carousel! Can you even believe it?! A carosel that's a bar?!?!

He was my favorite part about the Hofbrau tent - he just spun round and round

Random Aussies whom with we had beers... Silly Face's favorite show is Jerseylicious...
