A Gun?

Men hang around the house and drill holes into the concrete-walls. They say they lay cables for the inhabitants’ comfort to get fast and easy internet-access, tv-access and access to all that will come in the bright future. Yay … I have fast and easy internet-access, I have a phone, I hate tv. I do not need some holes in my walls. I am ready to work on a database, to write applications and work with the sad rest of my brains. If I had a gun, I am not sure on whom I would use it right now.

Procrastinate

I did the dishes. Vacuumed the bureau. Cleaned the surfaces of the desks. Found some time to go and get apples. The kitchen-floor of that friend needed a wipe. It became real cold over night, hot water would be nice. To fight the oncoming head cold. Cold feet.
I have an appointment with the old one on Monday morning. When I start I have to finish, must keep the concentration on the text … Is that called “drooling”? Nice word. Could be the equivalent to the German “trullern”. A slice of bread, a hot bath, some blankets, that should work.

Clash of cultures

Time for a new catch of the week. This time it is one of my older favorites: Japander.com. It shows clips of western “stars” in Japanese advertising. Arnold doing soup-ads is still … yes, it is not everybody’s kind of humor, but I like it. Some of these clips are shrill. I did not visit it since I moved to this apartment, because I still don’t got my speakers fixed. (It’s a software-problem, can not get the vintage drivers …) They will move their stuff to Youtube, but I guess it will take some time.

Running again

Semester starts with might – things have to be organized, I even managed to find my way into the “Virtual Campus” – a friendly student is to clean up all the traces I left: To find out what happens, you have to click any possible function – it’s a kind of fool’s test … they deserve it, they gave me access, ha!
Another expedition into the countryside is necessary on Wednesday, after that I should have everything together for an other happy American client … and be able to send a happy billing along.
Now I have to read a paper from last semester, a young man wrote about Foucault, heavy thinking is imminent. Yes, it’s time to turn back to the library, nulla salus extra bibliothecam. Seminar this winter on Thursday in the morning at nine – unbelievable: I must have been totally drunk when I accepted that appointment.
