Finally Threads

I never thought I’d get the concept but I think now I have started. I don’t have any synchronization issues to deal with in this project (yet) and so everything is working out nicely. Yay.

Concentration and fun at work. Now. Back to it 🙂

Girl Replies

I think she has noticed. Today she still said she didn’t need anyone but at the same time she’s smiling at him and telling him what she didn’t like about her last boy-friend. Now they are both out for a coffee/smoke break 🙂

Geek likes girl?

I think he is interested and she doesn’t notice. Instead she is bashing on stuff he likes. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe not. He’s a nice guy and she’s lonely. It’s the way of geeks I guess.

Lazy? Let others think for you

See I said so and I was right. I said that while the company was off-shoring some work to whereever this would not mean we would lose our jobs at least not any time soon. And I was right. I now have proof! Why why why do people not think? I mean ever since the first rumors came about the new office abroad there were also those who said that to save money our work would be done there. Admittedly I was shocked for a day or two. But my brain recovered and I thought: Yeah right and why is the company still hiring (like mad) new people for our teams? In the last one and a half years the teams have doubled in size! Think for yourself don’t let others think for you. Sometimes the office feels like a Panic Room and I feel like a psychic for knowing before what was to come 😉


So this game says I’ll live to the age of 89. If I do sports every day I’ll live to 90! Whow one year for “daily vigorous exercise” 😉 But if I was a guy I’d only get to 82, now isn’t that unfair? What a prejudiced game.

Summertime Sleep Deprivation

public void noSleep()[
   if(this.isTired()) {
         this.makeTea(); //this method has yet to be implemented :-)

I am one of those people who get up at the same time each day no matter when I went to bed, so the one hour lost really gets me. Rolland is one of the people who sleeps eight hours each night. However since we had to get up early to play bball he’s probably dead tired too.

PS: I remembered all the dinner ingredients correctly. I just looked up the recipe on the blog

Typical German Food – Not!

Via Chocolate & Zucchini I arrived at the Global Food Company. Curiously I clicked at the link for German foods: German foods and ingredients from Germany -Global Food Company. Go take a look for yourself what they have in store, I am still laughing. Well rolling on the floor doing that.

(Solution: Pfanni Knoedel, Dr. Oetker, Butterkekse, Kamillentee und Senf)

To redeem them they have some nice things like my very all time favorite honey mustard which everyone who loves mustard simply must try.

Sets @ Google Labs

Oh no I am not bored I am just trying to get my brain into thinking position and motivate myself to get back to my thread problem. In the meantime I tried out another google feature that was new to me until a moment ago. I am not sure what the “Google Sets” are good for but they work nicely: I entered Vampire, Mage, Werewolf and got the expected result.

The Skating Season

is officially opened now. Well official by me. Saturday I went skating instead to the Gym. I still know how to do it.

My muscle ache though comes from going climbing with Gerhard, Daniel and Alex at The Rock on Saturday afternoon for the first time since September.

And just to complete the list: this morning I actually scored some points. There were only 6 to play basketball with this morning. Where is everybody?

The point I am making here is: now that I am paying 50 bucks a month to go to the gym I find that everything else is more fun 🙂 A reaction I expected from myself. I went to the gym regularly for three months but somehow I didn’t get back into my regular training after that skiing vacation.
