Hubby managed to infect me with whatever he has (though I resistet for 5 days!) and for him being a freelancer and me being employed, I can stay at home and get well.

    #18Authormyklausunna (236435) 31 Mar 08, 13:14
    I won't change such a lovely students' habit so soon...

    oh dear: "Allergic Reactions to Owls and Birds
    Allergic reaction and hypersensitivity pneumonitis are potential occupational risk when working with owls."

    But how could I resist such a sweet face?!

    I think, what OWLs possibly need is lots of body contact and loving care...

    BTW I did not drink one bit of C2H5OH all weekend long. I'm always the driver... But I had loads of fun, anyway :)))

    Wari, get better soon, although lying in bed with a good book is possibly the second best thing in the world...

    Delete "book" insert "man" and without the man is the first.*fg*
    And Isi - he needs his nails clipped. C2H5OH I think is industrial alchohol (Ethanol), you start drinking that stuff and it's bye bye body.

    Gute Besserung Waringham! Would you want to try a home-remedy? don't know if you get Gooseberries (i think they are called Stachelbeeren) in your part of the world. Just grate them and take it with honey first thing in the morning. Works wonders against sinusitis. ginger plus honey also helps. boil ginger in water, add honey, take as many times as you can during the day.

    #27AuthorMOTHER (383672) 31 Mar 08, 19:30

    Yes, there's that too, but the afternoons are not really my thing. My social life happens mostly in the evening when my friends have finished work as well. Unfortunatly I've never really got used to going to bed earlier when I'm on earlies, so yesterday was around midnight when I got home and the early mornings don't really start until after my cuppa tea.

    And today has started as sh*tty as yesterday did, problems, problems, problems *shakes head sadly*. How am I supposed to find time fir LEO when I have to keep running from one computer to the next - like now.

    Hi Isi, am I supposed to know what you're talking about ??
    Wasn't there some firm or other that was sponsoring you (or sth. like that) to be a vet and won't you have to go to work sometime in the near future ?
    #41Authormyklausunna (236435) 01 Apr 08, 13:31
    My MUM is sponsoring me... And now and then I work as a promoter for Royal Canin and as Scheißeputzer im Tierheim :)

    Facharzt für Reptilien schwebt mir noch vor. Aber nachdem der Vertrag meines besten Freundes hier nicht verlängert wurde und gewisse DINGE sich jetzt meinen als Boss aufspielen zu müssen (und Respekt muß man sich erstmal verdienen, und zwar nicht durch Keifen), muß ich damit wohl noch etwas warten...

    #42Author easy (238884) 01 Apr 08, 13:38
    Good ol' mum, then who was giving you the hard time as you took time off to be with your dad. I remember you being somewhat upset at the time.*just had to look up who/what Royal canin is/was*
    #43Authormyklausunna (236435) 01 Apr 08, 13:43
    Yes, that was Royal Canin. Because I took on a promotion that I had to say then I wouldn't be able to do after all.

    Good ol' mum indeed =)
    #44Author easy (238884) 01 Apr 08, 13:51
    Ahh, thenkyou for answering my noseyness. And now you have to decide whether to specialise or start looking for work (at some time, lets not rush into these things). You may even be able to go back to Jersey zoo to finish/redo your praktikum. I could imagine that being fun now that some of the pressure has been lifted.
    #45Authormyklausunna (236435) 01 Apr 08, 13:59
    Yes, exactly.

    Heute habe ich meine Note ausgerechnet... So wie es aussieht, habe ich meinen Schnitt zumindest doch so geschafft, dass ich meine Doktorarbeit in Bayern machen darf. Die ist natürlich unbezahlt. Nebenher wollte ich hier in der Klinik mit Reptilien (auch unbezahlt) auf meinen Facharzt hinarbeiten. Aber gewissen Dingen werde ich nicht die Arbeit erleichtern...


    Und jetzt gint es noch eine Option, damit mir der Facharzt vielleicht doch noch ermöglicht wird, aber das dauert noch bis mindestens Ende des Monats bis ich da mehr erfahre...

    Genug zu tun habe ich auf alle Fälle (schlafen, feiern, essen und schlafen ;) Nein, ich krieg auch demnächst wieder was zum Übersetzen und die Doktorarbeit schreibt sich auch nicht von alleine...)

    #51AuthorMOTHER (383672) 02 Apr 08, 08:01
    Mornin' mum, not since she wrote last. I sincerely hope that she's wrapped up warm and getting better. How's Delhi this morning/lunchtime and I'm a little curious as to why you wrote (somewhere) that you live in Delhi - unfortunatly. Do you wish to live somewhere else in India or move to another land, what do you not like about Delhi ? You have to remember I live in a town of 60 thousand and that's the largest town I've ever lived in. I can't even begin to understand how different that is from a metropole of about 12 million. As ever, if I'm being too nosey - tell me.
    #52Authormyklausunna (236435) 02 Apr 08, 08:12
    That 'unfortunately' referred to there not being as many birds or trees as one would want.'sigh'
    Und ich bin kein Stadtmensch, strange though it may sound coming from someone who has lived all his/her life in Delhi.
    Are your monitors behaving today?
    #53AuthorMOTHER (383672) 02 Apr 08, 10:35
    My monitors nearly always behave themselves, it's just what they show/tell me that annoys. However, today is as quiet as it gets at the moment, we're all here (there's 5 of us), nothing has stopped working completely yet and it's nearly lunch time.
    You must have parks/green areas and the such like even in a mega metropol like Delhi - or am I being naive.

Aber nur aus der Apotheke gekauft, da da der Alkaloidgehlat genauestens überprüft wird. Huflattisch sollte man nicht mehr als sechs Wochen im Jahr trinken und bei Leberproblemen gar nicht. Aber ansonsten *g* hilft der super. Und mir zumindest schmeckt er auch echt gut. Irgendwie eher nach Suppe als nach Tee ;)

    Hi Wari, that means back to work next week ? :(
    Mum, I'm fine.I frightened myself half to death yesterday though. After work I went shopping and got home just after 3pm. I made a cuppa and sat down with a couple of biscuits, went to drink my tea and it was cold. Looked at the clock and it was 5-15pm. I had no conscious recollection of either being tired, falling asleep or waking up again. The whole thing left me feeling very very nervous and I had to go for a walk till my head quietened down again.*brrrrrr nasty*

    #81AuthorMOTHER (383672) 03 Apr 08, 11:04
    Easy to say mother, but not always easy to put into practice. I see little point in going to bed when I'm not tired just to lay there and stare at the ceiling. I already suffer from Schlafapnoe, I don't need any other problems on top of that.

    Good morning people, a very happy friday to one and all. #83. Mother if I got up each day at the same time I could probably regulate my going to bed, but I have shift work. It's not even the same throughout the year, from september to december I have different times to those I have at the moment. Then there's the weekends, on fridays and saturday I'm out till late or early depending on your point of view.
    Wari, TGYF.

    Good morning!
    It all depends on one's priorities in life. If you want this maschine to work properly, you need to follow certain do's and don'ts. Is it really that big a deal going to bed early? One may not fall asleep at once initially but eventually it does. Its such a fine maschine - this body that it can take good care of itself, provided it is not abused. In your case it is just a matter of resetting your biological clock which is not very difficult to do.

    Mornin' mum, I háve my own dos and donts, do enjoy life, do what's fun, do silly things that adults dont, dont worry about tomorrow (too much), dont accept all rules/regulations(just because they're there), do challenge authority, do tilt at windmills, never put off till tomorow what you can do today ('cause if you like doing it today, you can do it again tomorrow), do listen to children laughing, dont prejudge, do accept people as they are - not as you would wish them to be, usw...
    I'm afraid I'm a lost cause mum, going to bed early is sth. I can do when I'm too old to do anything else.

    Hello, Wari, MOTHER, mykl, stille Mitleser,

    Bye, Wari, MOTHER, mykl, stille Mitleser, have a smahahashing weekend. Yeah :)
    (Have I mentioned that my DVD-player decided to die on me while I was enjoying watching Red Dwarf? Hateful! The DVD-Player, that is, not Red Dwarf!)
    #96Author easy (238884) 04 Apr 08, 15:11
    Red Dwarf ist eine britische Science-Fiction-Serie, produziert durch die BBC. In Red Dwarf werden die Abenteuer des Technikers 3. Klasse Dave Lister erzählt, der für 3 Millionen Jahre eingefroren war und nun zusammen mit einem Hologramm, einem leicht senilen Bordcomputer und einer Lebensform, die sich aus seiner Katze entwickelt hat, an Bord des riesigen Raumschiffs "Red Dwarf" das Weltall durchstreift.

    Sonne scheint! Aber es ist kalt.. muß mich erstmal wieder ans Arbeiten gewöhnen.. Wie geht's bei Dir so..

    Habe übrigens geguckt..unsere Kleine kriegt Royal Canin Trockenfutter.. Irgendwas mit Size.. Gibt ja jetzt auch ein spezielles Dackelfutter..Kannst Du das empfehlen? ;)
    #101Author Waringham (384862) 07 Apr 08, 15:44
    das kriegt sie?
    und das meinst Du? ;)

    Klar kann ich das empfehlen ^^ (und dafür werde ich gerade nicht bezahlt). Fährst Du lieber Golf oder eine Mischung aus Mercedes und Porsche? Das Rassefutter ist halt n bisserl Luxus. Aber ganz sicher gut.
    Nur darfst Du Dich meiner Meinung nach nie (auch beim normalen RC-Futter) an die Fütterungsempfehlung halten. Damit füttert man sein Viechzoix nur fett. Die brauchen (zumindest beim Katzenfutter ist das so) wesentlich weniger als angegeben.

    Ich glaube schon, dass diese Premium Futtermittel, sei es nun Eukanunba, Hills oder Royal Canin richtig gut sind für unsere Haustiere.

    und das meinst Du?
    #103Author easy (238884) 07 Apr 08, 16:00
    Das mein ich. Momentan noch Mini Adult..aber ich wollte mal versuchsweise umsteigen.. Fütterungsempfehlungen sind mir Wurscht. Anfangs habe ich drauf geachtet und beim Großen (alten dicken) achten wir auch drauf.. Aber wenn es "nur" Hundefutter gibt, hören sie beide rechtzeitig auf. Also lange bevor der Napf leer ist..
    Ich dachte immer, daß bei den (nicht so teuren) Futtermitteln so hohe Mengen draufstehen, weil man nur dann genug Nährstoffe zuführt.. Der Große soll 2 große Dosen Pedigree am Tag essen.. Erstens mag er das nicht und zweitens reicht ihm die halbe Dose Rinti auch.. Das ist zwar teurer, aber alles drin. Und sonst füttern wir bei Bedarf zu..Grünzeug halt, wenn sie vermehrt Gras fressen.. zwischendurch immer wieder Wild..

    Dosenfutter ist mir schlichtweg zu teuer... Das ist, wenn man mal die Trockenmasse ausrechnet, wahnsinnig teures WASSER! Und für die Zähne ist Trockenfutter einfach auch besser...

    Hab ich schon erwähnt, dass in diesem ganzen MONAT der Wurm drin zu sein scheint? Nicht nur, dass ich schon Anfang des Monats pleite bin (dat ist ja quasi nomaaal), nein, am Samstag treff ich mein Brüderlein in der Stadt, weil der hier grad auf Fortbildung war, krieg n wunderschönen Parkplatz, löse ein Parkticket für eine Stunde und 12 Minuten, leg es ins Auto, schön sichtbar, als brav rechtschaffende Bürgerin, lass mich von meinem Brüderlein zum Mittagessen einladen und geh zu meinem Auto zurück: Und es ist WEG!
    Mein erster Gedanke: Kein Dieb klaut DIESE Müllhalde. Da holt man sich Cholera, Ruhr, Tuberkulose und weiß der Himmel was da drin schon alles lebt... Also hab ich mich genauer umgeguckt... Und dann wurde mir schlecht: Ich hatte auch nem Behindertenparkplatz geparkt!!! Super schlecht ausgeschildert, aber trotzdem einer. (Ich mach sowas NIE, meine Tante sitzt auch im Rolstuhl, ich weiß, wie kacke das ist, wenn nicht Behinderte diese Parkplätze blockieren)

    Also kleinlaut bei der Bullerei angerufen, gefragt, wie man denn mit den Öffentlichen Nach Trudering kommt und mein Auto wieder abgekauft... Zweihundertverficktefünfundsiebzig Euro PLUS 35 Eu Knöllchen.
    Ich leb dann mal den Rest des Monats von ... Zwieback oder so... =)

    Man stelle sich vor... Ralf Bauer war auch auf der Demo. Fand ich super!

    und ansonsten ist es hier im Süden Deutschlands mal wieder wunderschön sonnig, aber eiskalt und parkplatzarm. Ich bin dreimal um den gesamten Block gefahren, bis ich einen Parkplatz hatte.

    I want to lie, shipwrecked and comatose,

    #114Author easy (238884) 08 Apr 08, 13:04
    "Doktorarbeit für Dummies" wäre gut.. Ich geh mal schauen ;)

    Wildschweine.. yep..haben momentan Junge. Solltest Dich also möglichst nicht leise bewegen. Wenn sie Dich kommen hören können, können sie abhauen. Aber Du wolltest ja eh nicht durchs Unterholz kriechen, oder?

    Aber im Dunkeln, ja? Na, dann.. War schön, Dich kennengelernt zu haben. Aber im Ernst.. Wenn Du auf den Wegen bleibst, oder in Wegnähe und nicht grade schleichst, hören sie Dich und Du sie.. grade Frischlinge quicken die gnaze Zeit miteinander und mit Mama.. Im Zweifelsfall lieber ansprechen statt weglaufen..
    #115Author Waringham (384862) 08 Apr 08, 13:11
    Okay, ja, genau von dem Licht spreche ich. Das ist SEHR cool und SEEEEHR gruselig. :)
    Wenn Du mich mal in München besuchsen willst, können wir da gerne hinfahren *muahahaaaaa*
    (aber ernst gemeint ;))

    Ich war da schon ganz oft. Mittsommernacht feiern und so Zeug. Das Licht ist klasse. Und manchmal wechselt es wüst die Farbe und fluoresziert. Klar bleibt man auf den Wegen, aber auch Wildscheine überqueren mal die Wege, oder? =) Aber das mir dem Ansprechen ist n guter Tipp. Wahrscheinlich würde es eher ein hysterisches Anschreien ;)

    So, jetzt genug gemittagpaust. back to my parasites...
    #116Author easy (238884) 08 Apr 08, 14:39
    Wie gesagt..nicht schleichen, damit sie Euch hören..Im Zweifelsfall haben die mehr Angst vor Dir/Euch als umgekehrt.. Und ansprechen hilft bei fast allen Wildtieren.. Die laufen alle eher weg als anzugreifen. habe am WE eine hochinteressante Reportage über Haie gesehen.. Wenn man die läßt, verhalten sie sich auch völlig normal und fressen einen nicht gleich auf.. Menschen und ihre Vorurteile..

    Obwohl..ich kenne da 2 Geschichten mit Wildschweinen..
    1) ein Kumpel war mit der Bundeswehr beim Biwak..Nachts hat eine Rotte Sauen sich über die Vorräte hergemacht und die Frischlinge sind auch -neugierig wie Kinder so sind- in die zelte.. Jedenfalls ist irgendwann ein Soldat aufgewacht..guckt nem Frischling direkt in die Augen..und packt instinktiv zu.. Der KLeine quickt herzzerreissend "Maaaaaaaamiiiiiii!2.. Ergebnis: Kompanie sitzt mit MPs auf den Bäumen und Mama Schwein nimmt das gesamte Lager auseinander.. "Keiner fasst mein Baby an..!"
    2) Mein Mann hat mal nachmittags einen Frischling geschossen und Mama hat ihn gesehen.. Und stand dann 5 Stunden unter dem Hochsitz und hat gewartet... (das war noch vor Handyzeiten ;) Dann kam mein Schwiegerpapa mal nachgucken, wo Sohnemann bleibt.. und hat sie verscheucht.. Aber runtergetraut hat er sich auch mit wutschnaubender Wildsau drunter ;)

    Merke: Verärgere nie eine (Tier)mutter!

    #130AuthorMOTHER (383672) 09 Apr 08, 11:48
    Hallo Mother, gute Frage, die tibetische olympic torch war jedenfalls schon in München, an diesem Samstag, weswegen ja diese Riesen-Demo war (
    Ich denke aber eher nicht, denn warum sollte man sie durch London und Paris schleife, dann nach San Francisco und dnan zurück nach Europa?

    Ich wünschte, sie würden diese Farce abbrechen...

    Habt ihr gelesen, was dieser dämliche Australier John Coates von der IOC gesagt hat?
    (But the widespread view among Olympic officials and IOC members was that the relay should not be stopped.
    "I think that would be tantamount to giving in to terrorism," Australian Olympic Committee president John Coates said.)

    Ich kann einfach nicht verstehen, dass die Welt seit Wochen duldet, ohne größeren Druck, dass keinerlei Journalisten reindürfen. Die Politik hält sich weltweit viel zu bedeckt. Sonst hat man doch auch zu allem immer sofort eine Meinung und macht den Mund auf. Wieso nie bei China??!

    Hi Wari, yes, apart from the spring cleaning. I took the opportunity to go through the whole flat and clean everything from carpets to walls and windows.*sigh* Not very exciting, but it has to be done sometime.
    #197Authormyklausunna (236435) 14 Apr 08, 12:43
    Has to be done.. And personally I find it quite satisfying.. at least afterwards ;)

    #198Author Waringham (384862) 14 Apr 08, 13:05

    I hate cleaning carpets and I've only got one that's too large for the wash maschine.
    #199Authormyklausunna (236435) 14 Apr 08, 13:08
    I actually have never "cleaned" a carpet in the entire 29.875 years of my live.. I vacuum them and that's it. The only carpets going into the wash machine are the ones in the bath..
    #200Author Waringham (384862) 14 Apr 08, 13:13
    Aaarrgghh, A Milben Hotel ! That's the reason I won't have carpets anymore (scatter/throw rugs may have been a better choice in my previous posting). I've taken up enough carpets to know what they look like underneath after they've been sitting for a few years - not a pretty sight. I'll only use laminate and tile flooring nowadays. Are your little darlin's short or long haired ?(and I don't mean hubby either)
    #201Authormyklausunna (236435) 14 Apr 08, 13:23
    Oh..I seem to have a language problem there: Of course, we only have "fest verlegten" carpet.. And laminate/parquet and tiles underneath.. And I'm vacuuming under the rugs, too.
    Hubby and Carla are short-haired.. (wired-haired) ;)
    Our Oldie is long-haired..
    Find pretty dust bunnies in the corners..

    And btw I think, you cannot avoid little insects in your flat.. it's not healthy to live in a sterile environment (unless you have some pretty awful disease..)
    #202Author Waringham (384862) 14 Apr 08, 13:31
    NO, I don't live in a sterile area. Too many Germans do nowadays (IMHO) - thank adverts - which is probably why so many children have allergy problems - they aren't being exposed to enough "dirt" to develop their immune systems. When I was in hostpital a few years ago I spent 3 days doing allergy tests, I'm not allergic to anything, but 32 types of House Milben are allergic to Mykl.

    Life's going on.
    New doggie-course started last Friday. Until September, we'll learn to be a blood-hound.. 1000m.. Afterwards comes the "Stöberprüfung".. and a lot of obedience, of course. A lot to learn especially for me.. she knows her way around, I'm pretty sure about that. It's me who has to learn to read her body-language/mind/whatever and not to distract her. It's very exciting!

    Other than that.. work's going on. I'm finally enrolled back to University ;) Garden work started on Saturday.. it's fun, really. My Mom has her birthday on Thursday and I still need a present (though she gave me the hint to visit Douglas ;)

    Why are your sage and rosemary dead? Mine are fine after this so called "winter". Bear's garlic is out, chives, too. Different thymes and savory are still alive..not looking good, but recovering. Basil is dead. Lavender is fine (all of's my favorite..). Mint and lemon balm have spread a lot since last year..they're even in the lawn now. Sowed dill and parsley yesterday. Daddy's going to buy me a jostaberry and some blueberries (hope he got the broad hint..imagine me standing there and waving a complete fence ;)

    Sorry, didn't mean to hurt you!
    #211Author Waringham (384862) 14 Apr 08, 15:58
    Wari, that is not your garden, is it?!

    If it is: Will you marry me??? ;)

    My sage and my rosemary died last year, they didn't like the winter then :(
    And the rosemary was such a lovely, huge, old (well, 9 years or so) bush :(((
    What do yostaberries taste like?

    You would like this
    I bought a lovely lavender there, blue flowers, it was called "Blue" something. Blue ice? Arctic blue? Don't remember, but lovely smell and lovely shade! British Garden centres are the best anyway, in Germany you have to rjoice at finding two different sorts of lavender, or mint for that matter, in England you get hundreds. I bought After Eight Mint, Orange Mint, Apple Mint, Pineapple Mint, Russian Mint...

    Why is your Dad buying you plants? Is it your birthday or is he just a very nice dad? :)
    #212Author easy (238884) 14 Apr 08, 16:15
    That's Highgrove..
    Prince Charles' garden.. and married yet. It's a dream, innit?

    jostaberries taste a lot like blackcurrant, a little more sour perhaps, but really not much. The berry itself is a bit bigger. You can use it like blackcurrant, it freezes well and has high Vit C.
    They are resistant against mildew..

    Oh, yes! Please!!

    I told my Dad to make it an early birthday gift. But as I know him.. he's very nice! :)

    G'day people, a very happy tuesday to one and all. Isi, cheer up, you'll have a garden again - one day. All I've got is a balcony and I used to have about 800 sq. meters of garden. I miss the garden bit, but not the bloody great big lawn that took more care than it gave back in relaxation.
    Am I the only one to find it strange that you both were chatting in English. Has this become an English speaking thread now or is it just Gewohnheit ? Not that I'm complaining (as if I would), I wouldn't even have recognised that you are non-natives from the chatter going on here. People here in Leoland had already pegged Wari. as English, but then again with her language skills I'm not really that surprised. Isi, when you visit you're brother , head north. It's only about two hours to loch Lomond, one of the most beautiful desolate areas in the north - if you're not looking fot trees that is.

    I'm not starting at the University right now. Just need to be enrolled for a few semesters during PhD. As I need to gather some credit points, too, it's easier this way. And I can use the Semesterticket for the train :)

    Actually, this bloodhound-thing is more about the human part of the pair, than about the dog. She has been born with the nose and ability to do it. And she has proved yet she can. It's me on the other end of the leash() who's got to learn how to do it. And of course to keep her concentrated on a fake/artificial track for 1000m. Will be hard, for she has been doing real tracks (with a real dead animal at the end) last year.

    #222Author Waringham (384862) 15 Apr 08, 08:05
    Ahh, *cough* commas, I'm sure that there are numerous rules and regulations for the use of them. Unfortunatly I either don't know them or I've forgotten.
    I have to concentrate when I'm looking for mistakes when you write. On the one hand one "reads" the mistakes away and on the other I'm not always sure if you've actually made a mistake.
    Anyway, to your last posting *sigh*. After PhD. you don't need to capitalise As,(you were probably in autopilot after the full stop)
    I'm not starting at the University right now.(I) Just need to be enrolled for a few semesters during PhD. as I need to gather some credit points too. It's easier this way and I can use the Semesterticket for the train. would probably been my version of the first bit.

Arrggghhh, I'm sorry, but I'm always a bit unsure when Germans (and others) give genders to things/animals that we don't have it English. I know that she is refering to a bitch, but I'm not certain that without ref. to her in the text that you can call her, her.
    It's always a bit of a problem (for me) when you write by the seat of your pants - so to say - to be really confident, or to be cofident enough to correct others. It's one of the reasons that I write here. Well, a long posting without - I'm afraid - a great deal of help.

    Grisu has been a quite popular cartoon during my childhood. He is a dragon and lives with his father.. His biggest dream is to become a firefighter when he grows up. His father doesn't like the idea because he wants his son to be a real scary dragon. Grisu tries out a lot of jobs and lits fire accidentally at the end of each episode..

    *chuckle* We didn't have a TV untill I was almost 15 years old. I caught the reading bug very late in my childhood as well. My first book was Moby Dick and after that there was no stopping me. I don't think on reflection I would have had time to read before that - too many friends (also without telly). Those weere much simpler days than now, we had a play area that covered as far as you could cycle (our favourite bit of woods/forest was about 12 Km away) and we went out early in the morning and came back when we had promised (give or take as much leeway as I thought I could make).

    you just wait till the plane is a few feet above ground, then jump off
    Why...are you saying...that's NOT possible???!!

    Hey you alls,
    I've been chatting to a lovely, lovely turtle owner, who is suffering from rheumatism and isn't able to clean her turtle's tank due to her illness, so I'll do it for her.
    That's why I'm late...
    Actually, I had been wondering why we kept on chatting in English. I think Wari's explanation is adequate and explains it all: BECAUSE WE CAN :)))

    Wari, I doubt that the demos will change much, but at least we all keep on trying. Ralf Bauer was there again. And it was tipping it down with rain! But it's fun anyway, now we are all beginning to regocnize each other and it's nice chatting to strangers that don't seem strange at all because you've been seeing them again and again at all the demos throughout the last weeks.
    Afterwards I went into Hugendubel's because I still had a gift voucher from my birthday and bought this and this .
    So tonight I'll not move an inch away from my DVD-player. I'll be glued to the screen, I'll switch off my phone, I'll ignore the door-bell, I'll...

    And as there is still some money left from the voucher, I'll try to get this as well... :)

    slight addict, me ;)

    Speaking of telly and Grisu, do any of you know Jane and the dragon? i used to watch it every Saturday and Sunday last year in Cambridge. i LOVE it!
    And when my finances are a little bit more on the happy side, I'll have to get this!  
    No one seems to know it, but now at long last it's available on DVD!!!

    This is beginning to sound like an ad... =O)

    Don't know the "Bocksreiter" but it sounds great and all the people who bought it seem to know and to love it at least..
    Do you know this?

    Addicted to Jane Austen.. hm..yes..I don't share that one, but.. I like some of them, too. (Emma, Pride and Prejudice..) Watched "Becoming Jane" last year on my flight to or from Australia. Nice one.. I love James McAvoy (did I mention that before? *blush*)
    #242Author Waringham (384862) 15 Apr 08, 15:39
    No, I don't know that one... Sounds interesting, though ;)
    remember having tried to read one Tonke Dragt book, though, years ago. did not like the style, though I think I liked the story. Never finished the book, though...

    James MyAvoy, doesn't ring a bell... must have (**) seen him in Inspector Lynley. Can't remember him, though :) Maybe sth I shall have to remedy ;)

    well, I'm off now, see you tomorrow *wave*
    #243Author easy (238884) 15 Apr 08, 15:45
    Saw him lately in Atonement..
    Read a lot of Tonke Dragt (nearly everything..)

    Anyway..have a nice afternoon/evening/night..

    Good morning people, a very happy wednesday to one and all.Isi, Jane austin ?!Well, I wouldn't have guessed that in a million years ! Somehow I don't associate Gothic with Jane Austin, tja, each to his own. I gave some thought to childrens TV. frrom when I was a child and my favourite would probably be ...

    Well, another pleasant morning nicht gehabt.

    Computers dying
    Programmers crying
    Operators trying
    To do their best
    Nothing working
    Workers shirking
    Operators lurking
    In their nest
    Must try improving
    Programmers moving
    We’re all disapproving
    Of this pest
    No more agonizing
    Remain uncompromising
    Time for tranquilising
    Get some rest

    No need to blush! (No need for blushing? Ne, oder?)
    You've got a talent for poesy..
    #254Author Waringham (384862) 16 Apr 08, 12:51
    Make it: poetry. But it's still true.
    Kept Am I a nasty person? Do I really mean to hurt?, The bath in Leeds, Winter-Wonderland and do not stand on my grave..
    #255Author Waringham (384862) 16 Apr 08, 12:53
    Sorry Wari, "You won't find a bath in Leeds" is a luvverly poem from Sophie Hannah, I can't take any credit for that - apart from finding it.
    #256Authormyklausunna (236435) 16 Apr 08, 12:58
    I know.. "Do not stand on my grave" isn't from (by?) you, either, innit? Just the last part?

    None the less, it's in my mykl-collection.. :)
    #257Author Waringham (384862) 16 Apr 08, 13:05
    Yep, you can find the first part easily enough, it's an Irish blessing, but somehow it spoke to me (if that's the right way of expressing that). I was possibly just in a bit of a melancholy mood at the time. I met a very nice man at our Stadtfest last year, he was a blues guitar player. He answered a newspaper article for music lyrics many years ago. His poem "Don't blame it on the Boogie" was picked up by the Jackson 5 and brought him enough money initially to buy a house here in Germany. He still gets royalty cheks every 3 months which pay all his bills and living costs leaving him free to tour round Europe from one music festival to the next. He tried for a further 6 or 7 years to write another hit, but never managed it again. Goes to prove, one hit will do - if you're lucky.
    #258Authormyklausunna (236435) 16 Apr 08, 13:16
    Amazing..I could never be that creative.. I'm good at reading poetry, though ;) From that, I got a certain feeling for rhythm and Verslänge, but some Gebrauchslyrik is all I can do.
    #259Author Waringham (384862) 16 Apr 08, 13:26
    Know what you mean, but being creative isn't everything. When I see/hear what these casting shows produce (in different countries) it makes my toenails curl. I know the songs aren't as important as the cool dance steps and haircuts to the average 13 year old, but the majority aren't anything more than 4 lines of text with a load of hoo haaas and I love you/your..whatever. Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhh
    #260Authormyklausunna (236435) 16 Apr 08, 13:39
    That's why most of them don't last longer than about half a year.
    I mean I listen to some stuff that doesn't have great lyrics, too. But then it's the float of the melody, the rhythm or else that makes me stay.
    But when you think of really old stuff that's still "trendy"..that's definitely sth absolutely different.
    Auld Long Syne (1788)
    Ode an die Freude (1785)
    Rule, Britania (~1749)

    I'm always pretty excited how long things from today will last, who's gonna be a "Klassiker" someday and who'll just vanish from the scene.

    I mean, the beatles "made it"..even with a lot of ouu-hu-hu and I love you.. same goes for Elvis.. Some of my teenage singers were just one-hit-wonders.. Remember Chesney Hawkes? No??

    Or about books.. Harry Potter is popular now, but will he last? Like Heidi (1880) or Nils Holgersson (1906)..
    We will see..
    #261Author Waringham (384862) 16 Apr 08, 13:57
    Remember him ! I've never heard of him - even after giggling for his song list. I think Harry will last, there are just too many readers for it to die out, I got bored after the 3rd book though. So, enogh creativity and discussion for today, I've got to go home again.Wari, I wish you a pleasnt day and hello to anyone who turns up for the night shift (or the getting out of bed late shift). Till the morn
    *Hmm, just visited the counter uppers, Penis enlargement ? LSD ? And I thought I was weird*

    Do you want to have my spam? At least, you would know what to to do with a Penis enlargement.. I just thought about being able to pee standing (stand peeing) wtf!

    Moin Wari, we we're singing as a matter of fact, one of our favourites - Lemon tree from Fools Garden. I sent my mum a scottish birthday pesent...
    ...A telephone call to tell her I still love her - reverse charged.
    #274Authormyklausunna (236435) 17 Apr 08, 07:57
    Oh, she gave me the hint to go to Douglas.. I will do and hopefully find out again..
    #275Author Waringham (384862) 17 Apr 08, 08:04
    Er, did she also drop a hint as to what you should be looking for when you get to Douglas ? It's just that she may be a little disappointed should you buy a bottle of Hugo Boss.
    #276Authormyklausunna (236435) 17 Apr 08, 08:16
    Erm.. should try that. No, I have a vague idea what she likes and uses.. Laura Biagiotti and Casmir by Chopard.. I think I'll find sth..
    #277Author Waringham (384862) 17 Apr 08, 08:52
    I've got a box of assorted after shaves in the cellar from different relatives over the years. It doesn't seem to matter how oft I say I only use a deo. I still get them sent. Still, I've used quite a few for presents to other people - so that they can start their own cellar collection.
    #278Authormyklausunna (236435) 17 Apr 08, 09:05
    So, 20 minutes to go..then I'll be off to Douglas.. found some nice things on/in your link..
    My husband doesn't use aftershaves, either.. So I don't give him any.. It's a pity.. Most aftershaves smell so nice..and I can't rally go and wear an aftershave, being nearly 30. I did it as a teenager, but now I feel too old and much too female for things like that..Used to wear a suit then.. /zumir/ OmG /zumir/

    Anyway: I wish you a pleasant rest of day and a wonderful Friday..And if I don't come to accidentally slip in, also a happy weekend! CU
    #279Author Waringham (384862) 17 Apr 08, 12:16
    Bye Wari, have fun shopping. C U later. A suit ! I've still got 6 or 7 of them (bet they don't fit anymore) *gg*

    Gooooooooooooooooooood Morning
    Ganz neue Seiten treten hier auf...
    I did it as a teenager, but now I feel too old and much too female for things like that..Used to wear a suit then..
    strange images surface in my mind... :)
    mykl, I've cleared out my wardrobe last week, throwing out all the stuff I don't fit into anymor, and then I accidentally saw something on TV that night about stomach stapling operations. I was so frustrated that I considered going back on the Atkins' Diet... and had to eat chocolate to get over it ;)
    #281Author easy (238884) 17 Apr 08, 13:48
    Good morning Isi, *looks suspiciously at watch* I admit I'm a terrible hoarder, I hate throwing things away - even if the suit lapels look like they've just come out of a 70's tv series. Bugger the diet, if I can't lose weight i can at least try and get the rest of the European population up to my size.Anyway, I've got to go home now, have fun Isi see you later. A very pleasant day to anyone else who turns up.
    Till the morn
    #282Authormyklausunna (236435) 17 Apr 08, 14:00
    Well, there is hope... I didn't throw the stuff away. I bagged it with the tiniest of ghopes that I might fit into the stuff one day again ;)

    Bye, mykl, have a luvverly afternoon!

    Oh, and Happy Birthday of course to Wari's Mum!

    Moin, Moin!
    Had a wonderful doggie course, she (sic!) knew best what to do and I just followed.. That's probably why it's called "Hundeführerlehrgang", not "Hundelehrgang" ;) !
    Two birthday parties on the weekend, Mom had a lot of fun, drank too much Prosecco and started to tell interesting jokes.. *lach*
    This week, our boss is away to Mainz, so I can relax a bit ;)
    #287Author Waringham (384862) 21 Apr 08, 10:53
    Hi Wari, sounds like you had a super weekend.
    I went to a birthday party too - on saturday.
    #288Authormyklausunna (236435) 21 Apr 08, 11:03
    Yes, I had ;)
    The party on Saturday ended on Sunday morning ;)

    I have a question concerning that: Is "Schunkeln" and "Mitklatschen" typical German behavior or do GBs practice them, too? It's so aweful..
    #289Author Waringham (384862) 21 Apr 08, 11:11
    I left early as well. It was only a quarter to one.
    Clapping along (to a tune) is OK, but you won't find many Brits that Schunkeln. I've got a certificate that exempts me from Schunkeln]/i] when the local carneval club put on their show.
    #290Authormyklausunna (236435) 21 Apr 08, 12:31
    Just thought, the Brits/Scots Schunkeln to Auld Lang Syne, but even that the majority get wrong. You're not supposed to cross and join hands till the last verse, but most people join hands from the very beginning.
    #291Authormyklausunna (236435) 21 Apr 08, 12:40
    I'd like that certificate, too. The "Alleinunterhalter" was really awful. Kept playing lot of German carnival/Apres Ski/Whatever-stuff (most of which I didn't even know...) although nobody danced or sang along. When he played "evergreens", people danced and sang and clapped along.. but then again, he swept the dance floor by sth like " das rote Pony" ???

    (Why is it awesome but aw_ful? Is there any way I could keep that in mind?)
    #292Author Waringham (384862) 21 Apr 08, 12:51
    Is there any way I could keep that in mind Yep, by learning it.
    Sorry, English is a language of exceptions rather than rules. My favourite is "i" before "e" except after "c", and what about weird, neighbour, vein and all the other words that don't follow this rule.
    #293Authormyklausunna (236435) 21 Apr 08, 13:02
    Yep, by learning it. I knew there's a catch in it! Damn!
    I admire people who want to (and do) learn German.. It has got a lot of rules and exception, too. And most native speakers don't know/use them either.. ;)
    #294Author Waringham (384862) 21 Apr 08, 13:15
    German is a language of rules with some exceptions.
    English is a language of exceptions that sometimes have rules.

    #296Author Waringham (384862) 21 Apr 08, 13:33
    That they are a rule loving people (and to the most part rule-following) - as anyone with any amount of contact will tell you.
    #297Authormyklausunna (236435) 21 Apr 08, 13:40
    As this comes from you, I will not feel offended.. Personally, I think a bit less rules and a bit more rule-following would be fine. And there a countries having much stricter rules (and -followers).. But that would lead to far..
    I'm going to knit a thread is due.
