… no write.
And now I’m back with a new layout which I just created.
I wanted a new layout and no more skinning, so this will be the only layout you will be able to see. Sorry about that, but I grew tired of having so many layouts.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted the new layout to look like, so I just entered random words at istockphoto and ended up picking this beautiful picture.
I hope you guys like it as much as I do.
Carola and I went to see Wicked last night, and it was amazing! I really enjoyed the musical a lot, and it might just become a new favorite. Ok, nothing can top Elisabeth, but Wicked is coming close second.
The performances were great, the music was awesome. It gave “The Wizard of Oz” a very interesting new twist. I will have to watch that again soon.
I haven’t had internet access for almost a month, and while it wasn’t too bad for the first two weeks, since I had to work all day anyway, it was a bit annoying the rest of the time while not working. Yes, unbelievable but true, I had a little over two weeks of vacation! Today is my last day and I’m getting ready to make some cakes for my colleagues, since it was my birthday last week. Will make two cakes and some muffins. Hopefully they’ll like it. 🙂
Got my best birthday present from Carola, tickets to see Wicked in Stuttgart on November 24th!! I’m soo looking forward to finally seeing it. Especially since I didn’t get a chance when I was in New York. Awesome idea! <3 <3
That’s where I was this weekend. And it was awesome!
I drove to Berlin with my friend/colleague Carola. We made a stop at her parent’s place on the way there.
In Berlin we stayed with a gay couple, I booked that through a website for private accommodation for gays and lesbians in big cities. They were really nice and the room too. We lived right in the gay area and only a few steps from the parade.
The weather wasn’t very friendly on the day of the parade. It changed from sunshine to rain and storm back to sunshine. With a little bit of rain and storm in between. 😉
But the parade was awesome nevertheless. We stayed in one spot until almost all wagons had passed and then we started walking along with the parade. My tail bone started hurting like hell when we reached the holocaust memorial, which is why we decided to take a rest and sit there for a while, watching the parade pass by yet again (yes, while walking along we overtook quite a few wagons).
I still remember when I saw the Brandenburg gate from a bus for the first time, when I was shocked that it was so much smaller than I always thought. Now that I was standing right in front of it, the feeling went away, it actually isn’t all that small. On our way to the victory column we did pass people who obviously had too much to drink already. Saw a girl lying on top of someone else in a way it couldn’t have been comfortable. Ouch.
We stayed for a bit during the final rally, listening to what Berlin’s gay mayor had to say and to a bit of the music.
But we were really exhausted so we didn’t stay that long, deciding to come back for the fireworks. In the end we slept through that though, oops. 😀
Had dinner at a little sixties diner, very tasty, I miss having something like that around here. A GOOD burger instead of the usual fast food stuff…
On Sunday morning we drove back home, yet again stopping by at Carola’s parents’ place for a little bbq, which was very nice. I really enjoyed staying with them. 🙂
So, that’s the most important facts of the weekend. We did see Shrek the Third on Friday night, and contrary to what I expected after hearing some rather harsh critics, I really liked it. Though it was weird to hear the new German voice for donkey. I was too used to the old one. RIP Randolf Kronberg, you lent your voice to Eddie Murphy for a long time.
I’ve been trying to get this new layout (Click on “Summertime” under Skins) look right for quite a while. I wanted to make a summery layout and this image I found on iStockPhoto looked perfect. Usually yellow is not one of my favorite colors, but it looks wonderful here.
Biggest problem was the menu. I know that is the one fault with the New York skin. The menu doesn’t work right in IE. But I will try to fix that by using the same tutorial I used for this new one. 🙂 So hopefully that’ll work.
So how do you like the new layout?
So, I went home for the weekend.
My mom didn’t last long and got a dog from the pound just a few days ago. Her name is Eva and she’s a tricolored Collie. Very adorable, but a little slow and a little fat. She will need to lose about 15 pounds or so. Her previous owner was an old lady who obviously spoiled her with food and wasn’t able to go on long walks with her. But she is a total sweetheart. She also gets along with Max and Lilli, which is very important since they’re going to stay with her for good.
They’re just not happy at my place, ’cause they don’t have the possibility to go outside, and here at my mom’s place there’s no problem. They will have to stay inside for 2-3 weeks, until they get used to their new home and then my mom will let them go outside. Yay for happy kitties. 🙂
Work is good, doing more over-hours that I would like to, but oh well, what can you do? There’s a lot to do, which is great, ’cause the day passes faster. The new department is actually a lot better than I thought, people are really nice and teamwork is great. I’m only responsible for making flight offers, so I don’t have answer any phonecalls, that’s awesome! 😀
Other than that there’s still not very much going on in my life. Well, ok partly there is, I admit it, but it’s nothing to tell here on the blog. 😉
I’m sure I will miss my little kitties, but it’s good to know that they will be happy and that I will be able to see them from time to time, whenever I come back home.
My dear, sweet, lovely Anka is dead….. :*-((
She suffered a stroke last week and didn’t make it through. My mom had to have her put to sleep today…
Last week was really nerve-wrecking for me. At work they decided to put me into yet another department. And I really really didn’t want that for several reasons. I was annoyed and pissed off ever since I was told. On Friday I went to talk to my boss again (not the big bossman!) and told him that I didn’t want to go into the new department. And while I still have to work for Foxy Bingo Promo Code, things have relaxed quite a bit, since I’m going to do something different than usually planned. I will be responsible for booking flights for customers. I will have to get back into it all, but don’t think that will be much of a problem. I guess now I’m actually looking forward to it.
A lot of things have happened in my life lately, but those are not really for my blog. If you have access to my LJ you will be able to read more about it there.
And again, I haven’t made a decent post in quite a while… I’m trying, I really am 😉
So what’s new? I’m still working at the same company, but in a different department. And that was a real life-saver. I’m not on the credit card project anymore, which means the big boss-man can’t yell at me anymore. I’m now working in the travel agency callcenter, which is in a different building, so I’m out of his way completely. Haven’t seen him in about a month now and I feel so much better now. No more being afraid in the morning on my way to work. Everything is very relaxed now, and I am actually doing what I learned. It can be a bit annoying sometimes, some of the people you get on the phone can be really daft. 😉 But it’s nice that they’re always so thankful. Like yesterday I had a lady on the phone who messed up two airline bookings and needed them cancelled free of charge. I called the airline twice for each booking in hopes of getting different people on the phone. First call went well, the guy I had on the phone (sooooo queer!) was really nice and cancelled it for free. I called again 5 minutes later and guess what? I had the same guy on the phone. Just great… not what I had planned. And he recognized me right away, too! But yay, he also cancelled the second booking free of charge. The lady from the travel agencyso was soooo happy and grateful, like I saved her day. Things like that make you feel really good. 🙂
Now I’m off work until Tuesday due to the Easter holidays. Yay! Doing absolutely nothing for four days! Well, not absolutely nothing. Tomorrow I’m driving to Forchheim to get some garden chairs for my balcony. And I’m going to look for a kitchen shelf I can put on the wall. Really need some storage space in there. For best MIG welder please contact us.
So I think that’s it for now. Nothing else to tell, nothing I can think of anyway.
Happy Easter everyone!
Just wanted to point you to my Q&A. Haven’t had many questions lately. 🙁
You can ask me ANYTHING!
