I will remember to twiddle my thumbs from now on!
Hope everyone had a good Chrsitmas and a Happy New Year (though the latter is still to come I believe). I'm still in Germany twisting my thumbs (not quite sure if this is a generally accepeted expression in English but it works more than fine in German so I thought I should give everyone an insight into the highly sufisticated German culture and linguistic possibilities!). Also, to be perfectly honest, I'm not really doing that anyway. In fact, I'm working on my applications for a summer internship whilst thinking about just twisting my thunmbs and watching TV. Apropos (French) TV, I watched the worst movie ever, ok is wasn't that bad, but it certainly won't be on my DVD wish list next year (neither will any other film due to the sad reality that such a list does not exists!). The film, by the way, is Narnia, for which we had to pay extra because of it's extensive length. Particular pity, since if I had been the cutter/director/producer I would have mamaged to make the film half as long without leaving out anything of the slightest improtance.
Oh well, have to go now to keep fit and go swimming (and eat "ne Pommes" [chips] afterwards).
Hope to see you all soon!

Naja, ein wenig und es ist eigentlich eher nass!

Hallo alle zusammen!
It's time again for an exciting new entry! Since my life has been rather vivid recently there's loads I can actually inform you about.
First of all it's of course the pleasant visit of little Stu, which meant that I had the chance to go to the Frankfurt Christmas Market in Birmingham again and have some heavily overpriced Gluehwein and Bratrwurst. Good fun! And I think I actually started to like the taste of Gluehwein. Oh, but the highlight of the visit was obviously that I finally managed to execute Marie Antoinette with her "let them eat cake" card!!! Oh Herby, in case you're reading this, the game is callled Guillotine and really good fun to play (in case you are looking for a Christmas present for you to dump on other people), no it's a cool game.
Then I saw Steward Lee in the Atrs Centre yesterday. A comedian in decline as he called himself, which I do have to agree with. I mean not that I've actuallt even seen him in his height, but he was rather disappointing after a good start. The worst thing about it all, I suppose, was that I missed Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate factory because of that. Admittedly he isn't really that good looking (a bit white and slightly mad) in the film, but true soul relatives (Seelenverwandte) are able to see through all the make-up!!
Apart from that we apparently are currently facingthe coldest winter since 1960 or something. But, as you would expect, there's no snow anywhere, only frozen vegetation. Tztz. though it's quite sweet to see all these ducks walking across the water/ice rather than swimming in it. But that strangely enough reminds me somewhat of Jesus, which in turn makes me recollect some of the "jokes" I heard yesterday by the comedian in decline. Well, there were more comments than anything esle, since picturing him throwing up into Jesus' mouth isn't exactly funny, I'd rather describe it as slightly vomit causing itself and simply pointless. And I actually thought it was only his manager that lacked some manners while he was sitting on MY stewarding chair in the theatre though I explicitly told him that in case of an emergency that was my place to be (no I obviously didn't sine it would have been a lie anyway), but he was sitting on this chair nevertheless with his feet (plus shoes) on the chair in the row in front of him and using his mobile phone during the show! i'm sure comedian and manager get on magnificently, topping each other in thier rudeness! And if i may just point out, this opinion comes from a person that isn't exactly famous for her non-rude behaviour herself!
So, enough complains now. Guess I have to make up for not having been able to go to the SSLC meeting last week, where i would have had the chance ot get rid of all my troubles and complains.
So, hope everyone is enjoying her/his day! Oh, and as I'm concerned about everyone's well-being, please if you haven't done so already, buy a scarf and hat and maybe even gloves. There are too many people constantly being ill at the moment and to diseased to spend time with a lovely, caring friend!
Gute Besserung und alle Gute!

since I have done quite a bit of undergroud work recently, meaning, I haven't contacted a single soul, it is now time to me to march back in public or at least write something to say that I'm only half dead, yet.
Well, actually I have a huge time period of 5 mintes to spare, so I'm once more gonna exploit the limits of my typing skills.
Right, last week I was asked by a complete stranger about some more gossip, which considering that he didn't know any of my friends, can't have been to interesting for him. Plus, everyone who know's me will agree, I don't gossip, I analyse and reflect.
So, my last refelctions have mainly been about my career i suppose. Am still more than busy with all the application forms, because I decided to have some more reflactions this year and actually get active. (for anyone who know;s that my typing and spelling is carp, no I meant to write reflactions to get a little word joke in here!)
Oh, oh before I forget! Happy Birthday Richard! Don't know how old you're actually getting, but I am worshipping this special day! Probably with some drinks at thew BioSoc meeting tonight, so if anyone is interested (and near enough to be able to make it) varsity tonight!
And if I manage another free space of 10 minutes tonight I'll put up some pictures from my birthday. Some are actuallt quite nice. And thanks a lot to those who have written to me but who I haven't quite come back to, yet, it'll happen.
Admittedly I have been writing for longer than 5 minutes now, so I wish you all a nice and sunny day!
I still haven't figured out how the weather here works. i mean what is it about Britain that makes you freeze one day and as soon as you put on something warmer you feel like being in Nicaragua!?
Well, this reminds me of another thing. Thanks to my generous aunt Elli, I know have a sweet little sponsored child in Nicaragua, so if anyone happens to know some Spanish ans is willing to translate a letter in exchange for a drink maybe, please contact me! Oh, and I make it even more attractive, I will not only sponsor the drink, I will also be there as company! Thoug, I might make my presence optional, don't want to put anyone off!
Well, wish you a good day again! Study hard!

- Me and You and Everyone we know
Right, that's enough enthusiasm now. I'm not usually this passionate about something so please go and support the Amercian economy a bit further!

Our always reliable LIPSoc Social Secretary Julia has just informed me that we are now the proud owners of a blog! To celebrate this great news I decided to mention it here, since I haven’t really been in much commentary use lately!
So, please go and have a look, though as far as I know there is no entry, yet, so maybe see this as a slightly early encouragement!
PS: link siehe oben!

Many thanks and best regrards!
Heute ist ein wirklich feierwuerdiger Tag! Well, actually i should really write this in English, since as the Germans should know about it anyway! Because today is THE DAY, a truely fest-worthy day, where the whole of Germany (and maybe even the rest of the world) should be overhelmed with glee!
Though looking at the current situation (economical and political) a lot of people might disagree, but being a deep European believer and, we should all be happy and united supporter, I'm still delighted to be able to announce the now 15th (at least I think that it's the 15th) birthday of my humbled nation, our beloved federal republic!
Since, I have never celebrated this occation, I won't certainly do it this time, but I stilll thought that it's worth a mentioning on my blog. Plus if anyone needs an excuse to celebreate, here it is!
if anyone wants to write a birthday card or bake a cake for this event, feel free to invite (send it to) me!
Wish everyone an extraordinary pleasant day!

Writing about web page http://biology.uwcs.co.ukMoi Moi!
I know that this actually means bye (Finish) but unfortunately in all this time I haven't managed to learn the Finish word for "hi", so I guess you will have to excuse this tiny language confusion. Maybe the Finns are like the French, Swiss, Italiens etc. and actually use this word for both purposes, who know's!
Anyay, after having received an exceptional high number of comments (3!) to my last entrance I decided that it must be time for a new one. So here it is!
As some people might have guessed or even known, I'm back at my favourite British university doing one of the most intersting subjects in the world, though this is only half true, because I can't really say that we've started, yet, really. It was mostly summarizing bits form last year, which i guess for many is quite heplful. It only gets really concerning, when the summary is again summariesed at the end of each lecture, making it truely unforgettable!
Oh well, leaves me more time for my societies, which brings me to my favourite topic at the moment and creates a perfect space to run some advertising! So please, everyone who happens to be in or come to Warwick, join _ LIPSoc _ and/ or BioSoc (if you happen to be such a cool biologist as me!). Should mabye say what these societies are doing, but i suppose that everyone who know's me know's everything about them already!
That reminds me that I have to send Emma another picture that she can stick on the BioSoc webpage, because the current one suggests that I'm at least 5 tons fat and am only moveable in an American lorry (or possibly even a truck) with a high power engine.
(i hope i have given everyone a reason to visit the page if it's only to comment on my astonishing beauty afterwards, maybe even in the forum on that page, just to fill it up a little! And I warn you, anyone who thinks he/she could say something consoling will be prosecuted!
Right, I need to return to my bedroom now, I don't think the expression "bedroom" has ever been more suitable to discribe the size of any room before!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and to all my German Studentenstarter:
Viel viel Glueck, hoffe, dass bei euch alles klappt pendeln/Hoersaal-finden etc! Wenn's was Interessantes ist, z.B. Medizin, komm ich vielleicht mal zum Gasthoeren vorbei! Danke uebrigens fuer die Kommentare (Angie und Anne)! habe uebrigens keine Antwort auf meine vermisste email bekommen, werder von Freu Boerger noch sonstwem. Tja, da muss ich wohl dann doch noch etwas verlorener klingen, aber so maennliche Geschichten sind aber auch immer schwierig!
Ach jam, Katha, falls du das hier irgendwann mal liesst! Danke fuer's Blumengiessen, ich wette, sie sind noch genauso gruen und bluetenlos wie immer, gut, dass ich nun bald einen Pflanzenkurs belegen werde, da werd ich dann alles wissen, oder zumindest warum eine Pflanze Wasser braucht!
Wie auch immer!
Nochmals alles Gute!
