August 2010


I’m rich!

Well, not really rich—but the good news, at least for me, is that my bank account is sufficiently above zero that I feel comfortable.

And I’ve done some shopping already:

DSL/Landline Service: I’ve ordered phone service for home, including DSL that is, in theory, 8 times faster than what I had in Weimar. It should […]

I ran out of Internet.

Sorry about my silence over the weekend, but Saturday morning I downloaded two podcasts, enjoyed listening to them, and then Saturday evening found out that I had run into my 3GB surfing wall.

I suppose that on the plus side it took me 6 more days to reach the wall in August than it did […]

An Update on Socializing Adam

No doubt some of you have noticed that I’ve expanded my online presence in the last week to include two new websites: Tumblr and Facebook.

Of the two, I expect Tumblr to be far more interesting and useful. Although I have not yet used it extensively, Tumblr, for me, is a place to stick things […]

Maybe I should visit North Dakota.

Welcome to my new Berlin bedroom.

You’re invited to join me in the bedroom.

Above my bed is my Tom Coverdale framed set: an autographed photo of the man in action and a piece of Assembly Hall floor, signed by the man.

None of my rooms are completely dominated by Ikea, but if […]

If there’s one thing I can say about this summer, it’s unseasonable.

On Settling Down.

I’m happy to report that things are falling into place in the apartment.

It’s making that magic transformation from a generic abode into something more home-like.

Eat faggots.

Today I mopped the kitchen and bathroom floors and started to put things in my living room into what should be their final resting spots. My […]

Not that I’m counting, or anything….

My Photos As Art

I got in the mail a pretty awesome “Gutschein” for PosterXXL.de.

This leads to me to ask two pertinent questions.

First, do any of my German readers have experience with PosterXXL.de? Is the service good? The output worth the price?

No, I would not put this on my wall.

Second, and for all my […]

Sorry about turning into a blog about moving…

Really, I hope to return to blogging about more interesting things than moving in the near future. However, for the moment, it’s kind of what I’m stuck on.

I wasn’t being productive enough at the office today so I decided to strike out a bit early and head home to take care of some chores, […]
