This shoe was willfully set adrift by an unscrupulous child. If you happen to see a child with only one shoe, please inform your nearest police station. The kid is wanted by the police for several other crimes against humanity. If YOU are the child who set adrift this shoe: Please surrender to the police! Crime doesn’t pay.
Or was it all my old flat’s fault? I had several plants during the last years and I managed to kill every single one of them. Well, my old flat was actually no flat, it was a dungeon. Try to viZZZualize a room with (almost) no natural light and about 9 degree Celsius in winter. I hardly managed to survive in there. So which plants could have survived that? Maybe moss? I even killed several cactuses. That’s saying something! Cactuses are very tough but they didn’t stand a chance.
Today is watering day
But wait, there’s hope! The plant on this picture is still alive. And it’s tough as hell. Not because the environment is cold and/or has no light. No, this time I am willfully trying to kill it. Since about one year I try to finish it off by a combination of not watering it for weeks until it’s dry as a bone and then suddenly filling it with water trying to drown it. Without effect. This green little bastard is laughing at me. But that’s all right. At least I have a hobby.
Today I came across a brick-lined wall and as I’m a big fan of clinker bricks and brick-red buildings, I took this picture to use it as a desktop-wallpaper on my PC. So why not share the wallpaper with my readers? If you like it, feel free to use it on your desktop too. Just click on the picture (the link points to Flickr) to get it in a bigger version.
Finally I received my new keyboard. It’s now much easier to concentrate on the really important stuff when writing.
Microsoft always seemed a bit unreal to me with all the bugs in their OS (=operating system). Now here’s the proof that there’s something unreal going on. Maybe that’s all they are doing all day. Playing UT.
This reminds me of playing some Unreal Tournament 2003 by myself. Time for some gaming action again. And by the way, I am really looking forward to play Unreal Tournament 3, the new version of the game which was released at the end of 2007. Unfortunately I would have to buy a completely new PC for this game as my old one is far to slow to handle the graphics.
I am now officially looking for a generous sponsor who is willing to finance my gaming addiction. I am ready to talk about trade-offs, just contact me any time!
