    Grandparents Were Bohemian!

    My Dad's Parents came from old Germany in the mid 1800's. I guess from the area once called Bohemia. Name of Rozica (I think I spelled that incorrectly).

    My Secret Fetish

    The title of this blog entry is purposefully misleading but accurate nonetheless.  The plumbers came this morning to sort out our leaky toilet in the seldom used downstairs bathroom.  It transpired that it wasn’t the toilet at all but a broken pipe leading to the bath...

    Gypsy Bohemian

    Just like Tasmania - I sometimes have to remind myself Bohemia is a Place. For me, it's an attitude and a beautiful free spirited way of life. Give me my hippie gypsy skirt and let me spin around this world like a tornado!

    In The Gloaming

    We had a bit of an earthquake in the night.  I don’t think it rated very highly on the charts but it did wake me up.  The bloody bookshelves in the living room have collapsed!  When Geoff got up to look there was a crack all the way across the plaster where the brackets...

    My Dad Loved

    My fathers name was Richard John Strejc,  I found out that Strejc means Uncle.  My  father was a great story teller, and I know that my great-grandfather was a tailor for the Czar, I believe.    I am a hairstylist, and believe it has always been...

    I’m working my way through Oliver’s diary and trying to read at least one month every night.  It’s so strange reading someone else’s diary, especially one that was maintained for so many years without a single missing day.  That’s dedication for you.  But, as...

    An Aphrodisiac

    I worked in the shop today because Angela had to go for an MRI at the hospital.  I dropped an 11ounce bottle of agarwood oil and it smashed to bits on the shop tiles.  Pardon my French but, ****!  That’s four hundred quid in a greasy puddle on the shop floor.  Not a good...

    My Grandma is full blood Bohemian.

    I understand Bohemia was the region now known as Czechoslovakia, so sometimes I tell people I am Czech when they don't know what Bohemian is. I don't know much about the culture but I know a variety of weird things are named after it... like Bohemian is supposed to be a gypsy...

    I Am Bohemian

    I sit here in my tweed jacket, smoking a couple of filter tips (menthol), writing about my country that has long been wild and natural. Nothing really matters but the sound of the broken clock ticking in my study, and the scribbling of ink on paper. I am Bohemian! True to the...

    Diary

    I’m just going to plow on in without preamble.  You don’t need to know anything about me, you just have to be interested in reading somebody else’s diary.  And don’t judge a book by its cover; I might appear to be one thing when, in fact, I’m actually another...

    I Am Bohemian

    I am bohemian by blood.  My great grand parents imigrated to the US in the late 1800's.  I am 100% bohemian on my mother's side and about 75% from my father's side.  One of these days I need to trace my family tree back to all of it's origins.

    Blood Amber

    I was in the shop today but Mondays are always quiet, especially at this time of the year.  I opened a little later than usual because I had to deal with a leaky toilet in our downstairs bathroom.  I’m no plumber but Roly from next door came round and did something with a...

    Another One For the Way of Life...

    I'm more the bohemian in attitude, like many.  I write, I paint, I'm a Photographer, I feel... The last more than anything.

    Absolutely!!!

    RuMoR gave a definition of Bohemian in his story, and reading it, I could have sworn that I was reading a definition of a summary of me. Let's just say, I'm a bohemian, and if you want to know more, read RuMoR's story! =]

    Now I Know Ep Has An Experience For Everything!

    I am Bohemian? Really? This is awesome. I learned since I had a memory, from my grandfather, my namesake, that we were from Bohemia. I tried to find it on a map and he just laughed. He pointed to Czechoslovakia and I still could not see it! Now its called the Czech Republic. I...

    My Lifestyle...

    I'm the chick alone on the street, looking for her next adventure. I walk around, in donated/thrift store clothes. I usually have $5 or less on me. Sometimes I sleep, sometimes I don't. I get my thrills off of cheap wine and alternative music. I can be found taking random bus...

    Me Too, and I Really Miss My Dreadies!

    Back in '04, I had to razor out my dreads, and let it all grow back out.  I cut 2ft, 2 inches, of auburn dread locs off, due to a DIY project gone very wrong.  ( Got Kitz primer in them, and just couldn't get it out. )  The dreadies weren't a "cultural...

    One Part of My Heritage.

    Part of my family emigrated from Bohemia in the mid-late 19th century.  Today the region is Chechy in the Czech Republic. I suppose that was during the pogroms against Jews during the period after the Crimean war. My generation has returned to Europe, albeit a very...

    What Does It Mean?

    I have recently discovered that I am one eighth Bohemian. I'm not exactly sure what Bohemia is or what the people are like. I want to learn more about my ancestry, and I feel the only way to learn is from people like me. I have very mixed veins, but very light skin. This, in my...
