October 18, 2004
sorry for not having written in such a long time.
it's just that my laptop has not been returned from the repair guys. this only leaves me using the uni computers.
I promise to to do better once I have internet access in my house and thus more time to tell you about the "wicked" (one of my favourite english words so far) life here in Coventry.
so what happened recently?
I have done a couple of rowing sessions and liked it very much. Although I had to get up at 6.00 am (!) on a Saturday morning.
But I should be compensated for that later on.
Because around noon my two old buddies Joerg (from Leicester) and Frank (from Bristol) arrived. The three of us went to the 2nd league football match Coventry vs. Leicester together with my housemate Serena. Although it was a crappy match I added quite a few swear words to my repertoire because we were sitting in the middle of the Coventry City hardcore fans who shouted "..who the fuck is Leicester.." or "...you fat bastard…"(in reference to the Leicester goalie).
The further development of the evening should be pretty clear to those of you who know me/us.
We went to a pub and then got enormous amounts of spicy food from the Indian take away in my street. hmmmm…....
But the unchallenged highlight was a simple German drinking game known by the mysterious name of "Maexchen".
Of course we had to introduce our foreign friends to that German tradition.
I don't have to say any more than:
1 bottle of vodka
1 bottle of gin
27 cans of beer
so as you can see I had a great weekend.
pictures to follow soon!!!! :-)
