Love Refugee: Friends with Benefits

Weirdly enough, after thinking about Andreas last week, I ran into him. On Friday night I was zonked and really looking forward to a night in with a pizza and movie – when there he was, at the pizza place, apparently doing the same thing.

Love Refugee: Lost in Translation?

I had a little speech prepared – well, perhaps not quite as formal as a speech as such, but… remarks, just in case. The usual: we work together, pressure of launch, you’re really great but let’s not make things complicated…
