Well, we notice: as soon as I am working my activities here shrink to zero once again. One reason is that I rarely use my laptop. I'm mostly online with my phone but can't post pictures via the LJ-App.I guess I haven't been at the laptop since I started to work again two weeks ago.
Anyway... right now I'm glad that an other week is over and that I'm facing at least one day off. On Sunday I'll be on duty at tbe Chorweiler quarter fair at an info stall from noon to 4 p.m.. Yeah, I know...for some that is like a weekend....but I'd prefered staying at home. Haha....though to be honest...If I'd not be working that day I'd most probably would have been on duty for the pet shelter at an other fair in Leverkusen. At least I get plus hours for the time in Chorweiler. ;-)
Eurovision song contest tonight.....with Australia! *muhahaha Well, it's already funny which countries we actually really have to count as "European" in that contest ....why not Austealia. I always said that China is right next to Russia. So they could take part, too.....yet more votes for Russia. :-)
The 15th was payday....and like every month I ask myself: what frivolity can I get this month. I was thinking about new shoes, a coat or a shirt.... in the end I chose new hair and underwear. It really was about time for a new bra and panties.
Tonight is "Geisterzug" in Cologne. A possible translation would be "ghost parade". It's sort of an alternative Carnival parade. (Yes...we had zombie walks before they became popular. ;-)) They started in 1990 when the traditional big parade on rose monday was postphoned because of the second golf war.
I never attended the ghost parade. Things like that are coming to my mind now that my whole active carnival-life has gone to zero. Unfortunatelly it came to my mind too late to actually organize going there.
My first received letter of this year was from the "GEZ"....(the German institution that takes a fee for public television and radio. They don't use GEZ anymore but their new name's too long.) Oh man...better not taking that for an omen.....
Happy new year everybody. Everyone's still alive. If only the random firecrackers would stop and my dog would be able to poop again :-/ God damnit...The year's 20 hours old already. Thete's nothing worth celebrating any more.
It was so much easier to respect people before there was Facebook and you could see your random friends (fortunatelly not the close ones) share a load of right winged populist shit and even things from Nazi - parties, that are only still allowed in this country because someone at the court messed it up. :/ It´s so sad to see people you generally like repeating all that dumbass propaganda, that those right parties use to get the stupid on their side. Unfortunatelly that crap is really going around on Facebook... and those people really don´t waste a thought or just don´t understand what they are actually doing. A friend of mine has already stated that she´ll remove everyone from her friendslist who post stuff like that. I still try to talk....as long as it´s people that mean at least a luittle to me.. but I´m noticing that it doesn´t make much sence. It seems like I have to realize: I´m with stupid!
I have some problems with "flickr".. or with LJ... well, whatever...there´s a problem somewhere that doesn´t allow me to post pictures on here anymore. This fact leads to me being even less motivated to posting here.
I was just browsing online mailorders for vegan food (don´t ask... all you´ll get is a snotty answer) and two pages of three I left right away when I saw they were selling vegetarian / vegan food for cats and dogs. I will not support any shop that sells vegan food for canines or felines. Just get it, kids, cats and dogs need to eat stuff that used to be an animal as well one day and that´s the (...Disney - music sets in...) Circle of Life. Humans demand their right to chose what kind of food they want to eat.... and if you let a cat chose it will go for the mouse. And my silly dog likes to eat frozen rabbit - legs he finds on the forest path. Try to replace the half rotten rabbit leg with a carrot.... Jonny would question your mental health. No, on a serious note... I know that vegetarian food isn´t good for carnivore animals. Dogs can eat larger amounts of vegetables than cats but still they need meat and vegan cat and dog food to me is nothing but a sign for the blind stupidity of people who selfishly ignore reality just to keep their own world order.
