The things I wanted to do ...

It's always like this with me. I have plans, but in the end I stay at home in front of the TV. On Wednesday, I wanted to go to the movies and see Inside Man, but in the end I didn't. Can't even say why.

Today I wanted to go shopping cos I need a couple of new clothes for my new job. But my left ankle's been hurting since yesterday so I don't feel like walking around town.

Argh. Also, the post about the things I did with my friend when she was here last week isn't finished yet. I'm such a lame-ass. *sigh*

Harry Potter Quiz

As Neville, you may be shy and clumsy, but you are loyal, gentle and generous, admired for your easy going nature.

Hm. Couldn't even remember what most of the HP terms meant. And I guess I read a spoiler in the quiz about book 6, regarding Dumbledore. Damn.

Ha, greatest post title ever ... j/k ...

Just wanted to say that I'm back, sort of. My friend left yesterday. We had a great time and the weather was very good, too. I'll post more about what we've been up to later this week (I hope). Am not feeling too good at the moment. And I've got 2 appointments at the dentist this week, which doesn't make me feel better either. And there's so much I wanted to get done this month, but of course I didn't. I even forgot to look at some computer books when I was in this big bookstore on Saturday. Instead, I bought Nick Hornby's latest novel. Argh.

Happy Easter!

Not much to say, just wanted to post a picture of something that's very typical around here: Osterbrunnen (Easter fountains). The fountains are decorated with painted eggs. Looks nice, doesn't it. The pic I'm posting is actually from the place where I live (not from this year, though, but from 2 years ago, according to the photo info). I'm not saying where that is exactly. Found the pic here. If you've got loads of time, you can click through all the places listed there and try to find the pic - like an egg hunt, in the spirit of Easter, hehe.

Bad weather and Harry Potter

The weather totally sucks. Rain all morning long. And it’s so dark you want to stay in bed all day. On top of that, my dad is in a bad mood cos he can’t work in the garden in this weather and he doesn’t really know what to do with himself in the house. My sister is in Munich and they had about 4 inches of snow 2 days ago. Don’t we just love this awful weather?! My best friend is coming to visit next Wednesday and I so hope it’s going to be better by then.

I have finished Harry Potter 5 now. Poor boy. He was in such a bad mood more or less throughout the whole book. And who can blame him? He tells people about the return of Lord Voldemort and what happens? Nobody believes him, they even think he’s crazy. And this Dolores Umbridge character, very nasty! If you ask me, those are not children’s books at all. Maybe the first 2 volumes still were, but the newer ones, not in my opinion. Way too dark. Okay, I know, terrible things happen in fairytales, too, but those are fairytales and I think children don’t take them literally or aren’t in much danger to be harmed by them, but with HP it’s a bit different. Yes, it’s a fantasy novel, but it’s still somewhat grounded in reality. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these people who say HP should be banned cos it encourages wizardry and witchcraft or whatever, I’m just saying it’s not for small children. But enough of that. Now I need to find jeopardygirl’s HP 5 trivia quiz in her blog archives.

Besuch beim Zahnarzt

Am Dienstag war ich beim Zahnarzt, seit Ewigkeiten mal wieder. War echt mehr als dringend nötig, mir tut’s an allen Ecken und Enden weh. Uah. Dummerweise hat die Praxis jetzt erst mal bis nächsten Donnerstag zu, d.h. es gab gestern nur eine kurze Bestandsaufnahme der diversen Baustellen. Der Arzt war übrigens sehr jung und sehr nett und er kam mir bekannt vor, ich weiß nur nicht, woher, was mich wahnsinnig macht. Ich hätte ihn gleich fragen sollen, obwohl ich nicht wüsste, wo ich ihn schon mal gesehen haben sollte. Vielleicht im Fernsehen, man weiß ja nie ... anders kann ich’s mir im Moment echt nicht erklären. Er hat rote Haare, das mag ich. Oh Mann, jetzt schwärm’ ich schon von meinem Zahnarzt, und das bei meiner Ärzte-Phobie ... Jedenfalls hab ich in einer rausgefallenen Plombe jetzt ein Provisorium drin und es hat noch nicht angefangen zu pochen. Dafür tut’s heute woanders weh. Echt blöd, aber selber schuld, weil ich eben zu lange nicht hingegangen bin. Übernächste Woche hab ich 2 weitere Termine, mal sehen, ob dann alles behoben werden kann. Und meine Weisheitszähne müssen auch raus, das war mir so klar. Davor graut mir echt, aber da ich nicht das Gefühl hab, dass da zur Zeit irgendwas wächst, schieb ich’s noch ein bisschen vor mir her. Ich kann ja auch schlecht, wenn ich meinen neuen Job im Mai anfange, gleich für diese OP freinehmen, was würde das denn für einen Eindruck machen? OP, schon bei dem Wort wird mir ganz schlecht. Wie überleb’ ich bloß jeden Dienstag Grey’s Anatomy und ER? Ganz einfach, Hände vor die Augen, haha.

I went to the dentist on Tuesday. For the first time in ages. It was high time cos several teeth hurt from time to time and I know there are holes in them. I didn’t get anything done yet, though, cos they had only squeezed me in on their last day before their Easter holidays, but I’ve got 2 more appointments in the week after next. The doctor was young and friendly. And cute. Red hair. And he looked strangely familiar, but I have no idea why and it’s driving me crazy trying to remember where we might have met before. Maybe I’ve seen him on TV, who knows? I should have asked him right away, but I was afraid he might think I’m crazy or using a bad pick-up line. My wisdom teeth have to be taken out, too. Surgery. The word alone is enough to make me feel sick. I wonder how I survive watching Grey’s Anatomy and ER every Tuesday. Ha, I know, by putting my hands in front of my eyes!

GNTM, T-Frage, usw.

Hab ganz vergessen, was über das Finale von Germany’s Next Topmodel zu schreiben: Lena G. hat gewonnen. War eh klar, irgendwie hatte man schon in der allerersten Sendung gemerkt, dass sie Heidis Liebling war. Macht aber nix, sie hatte einfach das strahlendste Aussehen. Ein bisschen leid tat es mir schon für Jennifer, eine der 2 fränkischen Kandidatinnen (ja ja, Lokalpatriotismus, ich weiß), die sich echt rausgemacht hatte, nachdem sie am Anfang wirklich aussah, als wäre ihr alles egal. Sie hat ihr Auftreten und ihre Ausstrahlung stark verbessert im Lauf der Sendung. Und ihren hoppelnden, wackelnden Laufstil fand ich witzig. Die 3. Finalistin Yvonne fand ich optisch auch geeignet, aber was die Intelligenz angeht, nicht so ganz auf der Höhe. Sie konnte ja kaum ein Wort Englisch. Klar, das kann man lernen, aber das hätte mal jemand deutlich zu ihr sagen sollen, dass sie schleunigst einen Kurs machen soll. Man muss sich doch verständigen können im „internationalen Model-Business“. Ein bisschen kindisch hat sie sich auch teilweise aufgeführt. Wie gesagt, mit dem Endergebnis bin ich zufrieden und es hat mich auch nicht überrascht. Ich freu mich schon auf die nächste Staffel der Sendung. Für mehr Infos über Lena und die Sendung: (ist eine Fan-Seite, nicht die offizielle Seite des Senders, und toll, jetzt funzen die Hyperlinks nicht mehr oder wie??).

Die T-Frage ist entschieden … nicht Torhüter-Titan Olli Kahn, sondern Jens Lehmann wird im Tor der deutschen Fußball-Nationalmannschaft stehen. Großes Drama. Mir ist’s mehr oder weniger egal, obwohl ich Kahn noch nie leiden konnte, schon allein deswegen nicht, weil er und der FC Bayern insgesamt mir zu arrogant ist. Mir gehen die ganzen WM-Countdowns und der ganze Hype bevor irgendwas losgegangen ist, sowieso total auf die Nerven. Noch 65 Tage (oder so), oh Gott oh Gott. Was Fußball angeht, bin ich außerdem überhaupt nicht patriotisch. Ich bin für die Mannschaft mit den süßeren Spielern, so einfach ist das.

In English:Totally forgot to write about the winner of GNTM: Lena G made it. I wasn’t surprised cos Heidi Klum seemed to like her best right from the start. And rightly so cos she had the most radiant look of all girls. I also liked the other finalist Jennifer, not only cos she’s from around here, but because she really made a lot of progress. She had to overcome her shyness and really learned how to present herself. The 3rd finalist Yvonne looked good, too, but she hardly spoke any English, which IMO is very important if you want to be an international model. Someone should have told her to take lessons. Anyway, I’m happy with the result of the show and looking forward to the next season.

The big „T-Question“ has been decided. Jürgen Klinsmann, the coach of our national football (soccer) team announced yesterday who will be the number 1 in the German goal. It won’t be “King Kahn”, i.e. Oliver Kahn, the goalkeeper of FC Bayern München, but Jens Lehmann, who plays for Arsenal (London) at the moment. I never liked Kahn anyway cos he’s arrogant. And the whole pre-world cup hype is getting on my nerves, too. I’m not patriotic when it comes to football, BTW. I support the team that has the cutest players. Hee.

P.S.: As you can see, I changed the template again. I needed something that looks more like spring, and the wintery-blue I had before wasn't right anymore.
I've also added my friend Sam to the links in the sidebar. She's great at Photoshop and a TV-show fan and shipper like myself.

My Saturday

First of all, I’m gonna be more specific about where I’m from cos it’s probably silly to think that someone is gonna come stalking me because of what I write here. I think I said before that I’m from the south of Germany. The town is called Erlangen. It has a population of about 100,000 people and is about 20 miles north of Nürnberg (Nuremberg), which has a population of 500,000. I don’t live in Erlangen itself, but in a smaller place close to it. I work in Nürnberg.

Anyway, I went shopping in Nürnberg with my sister yesterday and bought some nice tops and 3 scarves (sp?). There was this H&M store that my sister didn’t want to go in to. But then we saw the accessories department from the street and went in because I wanted a scarf. It was like heaven for girls. Thousands of necklaces, bags, hats, caps, belts, earrings, hairclips etc. etc. Kind of looked like a 70s hippie market. At least 2 men sat on some steps looking bored. Hehe. Their girlfriends had probably forced them to accompany them to this place. I found 2 scarfs (sp?) and a couple of hair clips.

I also bought the Juanes album cos it was cheaper than at Amazon. (Mi sangre, new version with a couple of songs from the album that came before it, Un dia normal) Love it! And Juanes was on the biggest live TV show (called Wetten, dass...?) last night performing A dios le pido, one of the older songs, and first song that I heard by him on the radio 2 years ago. And there was an interesting article about Juanes in the local newspaper yesterday.

We also got a coffee at the 2nd Starbucks shop in town, one that I hadn’t been to before (cos I haven’t been to Nürnberg for shopping in ages). I had a caramel macchiato and loved it.

I managed not to buy too many cosmetics products, which was very difficult. I'm totally addicted to buying new stuff. Lip balm, small bottles of shampoo or body lotion etc., although I have too much of everything already. I also love handbags, but most of them are so expensive that it's enough to look at them and I don't get too tempted to buy them.

So to sum things up, I had a good Saturday. The weather was nice, too, and the local football team (1. FC Nürnberg) won and aren't in too much danger to be relegated this season (which they usually are).
