To anyone who may have found this corner of the internet, and wonders why it is here,

To you I say hello! Pull up an e-chair and have an e-drink of your choice. We are generous people here in the internet.

We are the Sparrow and the Dove, of Chester and Billingham (it’s near Middlesbrough) respectively, though in a few days we’ll be moving to Frankfurt, where I’ll be pursuing a career in translation. Neither of us speaks German worth a damn – yet – so that’s probably going to be a recurring topic here. Spuggy (that’s Teesside for ‘sparrow’, so don’t say we never teach you anything) is into cooking, so he shall be posting recipes galore, I enjoy writing scathing reviews and, well, writing in general, so expect plenty of words to be posted here at any moment.

In between all this, of course, we hope you’ll be able to follow our adventures in Germany in which we shall assiduously not mention the war, laughing, crying, and having your heart warmed at the appropriate times.

See you soon!

    Hello!! I found this website after reading through all of your “sporking” of DAYD (yes I’m very late to the party) and since you mentioned a few times that you thought no one would read the posts I wanted to let you know that I spent the day reading through all of them, and I enjoyed them very much. You had all the best takes and I felt so validated in seeing my opinions reflected by you as well. Anyway, I’m sure you never imagined someone reading through your old LJ posts ten years after the fact, but here we are. You’re very funny and I’m looking forward to going through your more current reviews as well.
