NIght out with friends

We had a little after work get-together last night. It was organized by Joanna, because she was back in Vienna for the first time since moving back to Switzerland. We went to Rathausplatz where there is currently the opera/film festival. The programm for the night was going to be a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. But for some reason the programm was changed and they showed a movie ("Der Bockerer IV"). This was very strange because the only play opera films or other musical performances or - on very rare occasions - documentaries.

Whatever, we weren't there for the film anyway. It was fun and I had something called Frozen Lychee Daiquiri, which was, uhm, interesting but very, very sweet. We were about 10 (ish) and even Mathias made it out - he lives about 120 km from Vienna and missed his last train before midnight. The next one was going past 4am, so he had to find a room for the night close to the train station in the middle of the night. Hope he did!

Joanna and I ended up talking about Francis Cabrel and how much we both like this song here:

 Was good to see some of the again (other I could have done without, though :-/).

I hate "summer hits"

They are over-the-top-in-your-face-happy with crappy underlying beat and very, very annoying. Generally, I am not much of a fan of happy music.

But of course, for every rule there is an exception. Here is mine:

I  LOVE this song! I could listen to it 50 times in a row and never grow tired of it.

Flying Robert

First nothing in an eternity and than two posts in a day.

When researching (read: surfing the internet) for one of my other blogs I stumbled upon this video on youtube. I absolutely must share because I love, love, love the Tiger Lillies. This is the song "Flying Robert" from the so-colled junk opera Shockheaded Peter. So beautiful and so sad.


I know, I know...

I have been neglecting my livejournal for quite a while now. Sorry, but I got sidetracked by stuff like facebook, my other two (!) blogs, life (yeah, strange), and - most of all - looking for a job. Oh, and I also was on vacation in Prague last week.


I could now vow to be better in the future, but somehow I don't think I will be.

Back in real life and I had my first weekend since I can't remember when. It included a party (for Boris/Doris/Manfred) and a very lazy sunday WITH reading. Yay! I can read again!

Now I am back at work and I am bored, bored, bored.

We will have a meeting, shortly. No idea what that will be about, though. It definately will not be to exciting, I assume.

I moved back into my old office. We usued to be 2 people in there and now we are 6! Just imagine. So far, it was fun. We spent our time registering on facebook and playing scrabulous vs. the people sitting in spitting distance.

Euro 2008 Staff Party

Hello everyone, I am back after not having had much of a life last month.

Let's call this a "soft (re-)opening", hence not much in terms of writing but a photo of Shaggy from our staff party Sunday night.

Spongebob Gift Bag

Originally uploaded by concertina8
One of our long terms gave me a bag of spongebob goodies today. She said, "I can't promise anything but I really hope Patrick is in here."

This actually made my day. Now, how sad is that?

Pauli, football fan

This makes me smile.....and I need that right now.
