More Bunny Impressions

This was taken somewhen around noon today, when one Bunny sat under the tree right next to my window. They (or it) really like the tree. Either some very tasty plants (read: bunny food) grow there or they find it equally fascinating watching me as me watching them. (Somehow the grammar of that last sentence […]

Brush Up My Programming And Such…

… not quite brushing up my Shakespeare, but I have been pretty busy lately with other things. Since I’m in the middle (or rather at the end) of changing bank accounts (which I can’t recommend to anyone with procrastination habits like mine) I’m trying very hard to stay away from my Amazon wishlist. I have […]

Work Wisdom

‘This is going to be interesting’ is rarely followed by something good. Adventurous, maybe. Time-consuming, almost definitely. Mind-boggling, certainly. Nice and easy, never.

IS IT CAN BE BLOG TIEM NOW?

A friend at work is teaching me how to correctly talk in lol-speak. I think I am a very good student, although using bad grammar and wrong spelling on purpose kind of confuses my mind to the point where I’m not sure what I am actually doing and why, dear god, why? I think my […]

Praise of a Commuter

Ever since I started my new job I have to ride the train about 40 minutes every day. First I take the train from Opladen to Solingen, which takes between six and ten minutes, depending on the train. At Solingen I change trains and get on the S7 which takes me right to the office […]
