Follow-up to Gap between Christmas and New Year from Riks blogRight, thank you!
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!

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!

I just finished work, correction I thought I had finished, when I found out that the data I’ve used is probably slightly wrong blablabla….At least I won’t get bored during my last three days here, though come to think about it, I can’t say that copy-paste in Excel is the most exciting thing ever.
Today, by the way, is a very important day, as it’s now definite that we’ll have general elections in Germany in Sep. It might be obvious to most people who I’m gonna vote for, but I really don’t know, since I don’t trust any party of getting us out of this slowly creeping ruin.
Jordi, thanks for your brilliant idea, I’ll give it a go. By the way, my Mum says hi. Thank you for the post card. She really loved it and is even more eager to meet you now that you have even two languages (if not three) to communicate. Thanks to you she learned the always useful ending “ish”!
My “soon becoming Super-Model friend Angie” is in Berlin, which is a great pleasure, especially as I got a Münster update, which unfortunately wasn’t as beneficial as don’t seem to have been a lot of changes recently. Time for me to come back I guess! Hope Angie will make it, because we’re gonna go to a Capuera (I really hope that’s how it’s spelled, but then by now everyone should have noticed that inventing spellings is one of my favourite hobbies) training tonight, which is this dance where you pretend to be fighting. Hopefully our coordination won’t be too bad, otherwise I fear that I’ll have to carry my suitcases home myself.
Oh, I haven’t actually informed anyone about my new hairstyle, yet. At least I had a really nice woman this time, who didn’t threaten to cut of my whole head to ensure that such horrible hair will never get the chance to grow again. Though I have to say that she used her scissors rather freely, but then I didn’t actually discourage her. I should really put up a picture before my hair is gonna get into its natural messy state again.
OhOhOh, very important. I finally managed to watch the video clip to “Die Eine 2005” and I think that his finance is actually quite good looking, maybe I should get some glasses or decide to wear them or the crew responsible for the make-up did a good job! But then it doesn’t really matter how she looks like anyway…
And Charlotte, as saving the world hasn’t proved to be working out quite yet, I took up another challenging mission in trying to invent an exciting life here. Hope you’re Museum’s doing well and hasn’t been the location of a popular Northern Irish event, yet!
Something, I actually went to last week but obviously didn't have time to boost about my adventures and at least now I had some time to digest and talk about the highlights only instead of bubbling on about every thing that happened.
First of all, Energy in the Park is a concert, which like the name suggests takes place on the beach near the Wannsee. Tickets were free (a major reason why I went), though when I say free you are ment to paint for car or bike or body or whatever happens to come to your mind. At least, that's when I arrived at the Energy-headquatre, which by the way is a radio station here that I can't recomend. apparently to get two tickets you had to do something very very crazy, but after standing in front of the desk, the woman decided correctly that I was an extraordinary nice girl and just wrote "Energy in the Park" on along my arms. Happily I went home, till I realised that I hadn't got away that lightly, because it was hell to get the writing off again.
The concert for which Kiel Steffi joined me was brilliant though. Started of with a light breez to become a complete nightmare of rain, which helped to complete my summery feelings even more and made "Fettes Brot" nearly fall into the water (it was a swimming stage on the lake). Actually one of the guys from OPM jumped into the water. Respect! Strangely the Balck Eyed Peas managed to maintain there position on the stage, which considering the amount of jumping and effort they put into thier performance was a miracle. But then it had stopped pissing down for a while.
Oh, and the absolut highlight was "Die Frima", who not only sang "Die Eine 2005" but also brought her with them, so now I know what I'll have to do to make a HipHop-star write nice songs for me and obviously marry me. Though I have to say that in that case a rather change my taste in music.
It's quite amazing that the concert went on for about 7 or 8 hours and we were stading the whole time. I wasn't that tired though, mainly probably because I've been dancing the whole way through and kicking the girl behind me. Don't think she was to pleased about it, since when I turned round to her: "Am I kicking you the whole time?" she just gave me a rather mortalising look. Oh well.
Right, that was my weekend. The whole concert only cost me 90 cents, by the way, and that was for the toilet! Oh and, of course, the money for the soap that I needed to get the paint from my arms again…
Just a few words for my little Laura all alone in Tanzania. I think you should try and teach them Völkerball, which is a great game as far as I can remember. You could teach me the rules afterwards.
Since my Mum decided to have an "alternative Chrsitmas" this year, which seems to involve sending me off to Tanzania, I might even be able to have a look at the whole country myself.
Tonight I'm gonna celebrate Laura's return to the cold North, which will involve Cocktails for the price of 2,50€! And if they'll be only an 8th as tasty as thier price I'll be more than content. And whilst I'm takling about Laura, I wish you a nice farwell and I was really happy that you stayed over at mine for a while. You can't imagine how seeing you snoring like a sleep depleted gerbil made me wide awake during the whole trip home on the bus!!
And if I was more conviced of the picture taking ability of my camera I might even be able to put up some pics form this pleasant city in Septembre.
The Praktikum's going better and better. i haven't done a major mistake today, yet. Any haven't fainted from smelling all these pig feaces. So all in all very successful. Plus i'm an expert now in determining 1 g of intestine contents without measuring them!! I'm sure this will become handy one day! The sad thing about this is that i have to admitt that that's mainly what i've been doing the past three days, with the help of scales, of course.
This weekend, I'll be visiting my friend Steffi, who my brother nicknamed "Hünin des Ostens" (and I have to admitt given my spelling abilities, I had to ask how to spell Hünin, which I would have spelled Hühnin, which, of course, would have sounded like hen, which is far from the truth to do her justice), possibly because of her height and the fact that she's from a rather less known area that is highly nature friendly in the former Eastern Part of Germany. So, I'm expecting an exciting adventure.
Oh, and less important, but still, I need to say hi to RobbieTobbie In Japan. If anyone thinks that it is possible to use a German mobile in japan, please, please, don't tell him, because i really need a new one. Oh and Robert, pllease don't dishonour us in actually becoming a Sumo Fighter, I know the figure runs in the family, but try.
And very lastly: Jordi I'll be waiting and waving for and at you at the airport or train station or whatever medium of transport you wish to prefer and hopefully take, if you tell when you'll be coming! Laura's highly disappointed, but i'll try and make up for it tonight in making as many hand gestures as possible.
have a good flight….
or stay whereever everyone is in this world!
PS: And I'm only wirting so muc, because yet again, I'm waiting for some gel to dry so I can send some DNA travelling across it. Biology really is a time consuming and patience testing business.
