Drunk, Wandertag

I’ve ordered four gin and tonics, drunk three (one fell on the ground and shattered the glass).


Pizza from Joeys with Olives and Mushrooms.

Katya and i had a good night.

Tomorrow is Wandertag: office hiking day. 8:30 to 5:30.

Ok, I am about to admit that Pat Robertson was right.

Friday evening I am going over to Erfurt for three exciting events-the first is my journey to see the CDU candidate for German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.

Yes, Germany is in the midst of an exciting election campaign, and although I have no vote whatsoever, I am watching […]

WiFi Acting Up

I might post something longer in a spell, but the WiFi in my apartment has been acting up–so if it dies before I finish writing, I’ll post something tomorrow morning, my time.
