Back from Kiel

Last night Annika and returned from our Easter trip to her mother’s place in Kiel. Although they were calling for poor weather, it was really nice 90% of the time. We played mini-golf on the first day, on Easter Sunday we had a brunch with others and on Monday we visited friends. We then took ...

TAXES!

I’m just getting finished with my taxes. I sent the forms for the last 3 years in in December and now I’m doing 2005. This year my taxes are a little more complicated due to trading stocks. I must say though, taxes aren’t as difficult to do as I once thought. The “worksheets” are pretty ...

Happy 456!

Today is 4/5/06. If you’re using the American notation that is. Enjoy your day.

Unsichtbar

On Sunday Annika and I went to Unsichtbar here in Berlin. It’s a resturaunt where you eat in complete darkness and whose staff is blind or sight-impaired. I had gotten a gift certificate for X-mas from Annika’s mom, Anja. Annika paid about 40 Euros for her meal though. It’s not cheap but it is fun. ...

In the nick of time!

I just got a brand new Nokia 6230i mobile phone. This is a replacement for my Sony Ericsson T610 which I had replaced twice in the last 2 months. The funny thing is that I got it on the very last day of my 2 year guarantee. I now have another 2 year guarantee and ...

Been a while

I just updated to wordpress 2.0 and I thought I might write a post since I’m here anyway, it’s been quit a while since the last post and lots has happened since I last wrote. First of all I’m back in Berlin for the time being. I’ll probably stay in Berlin till the World Cup ...

I had a job, I quit a job.

So, it’s been a while since I last posted something. Here goes… For a couple weeks I was working for the censor-ware company, Websense, Inc. The work was monotonous but I expected that. Basically, I catagorized web sites which I thought I was going to find a bit morally objectionable. Turns out however that what ...

Laptop Repairs

Well, I’m going to have to send my laptop into IBM again. The last time they fixed the “Fan Error” problem but I didn’t send the harddrive with it. It turns out however that the hard drive is also damaged. I get random disk errors and it hangs for minutes at times. This means Ubuntu ...

Shaved it off

Well, I finally did it. I shaved my lovely beard. I took fotos of before, … … with transitional moustache … … and after. Oh yeah, here are the leftovers. It’s funny how you’re surprised the first few days when you look into the mirror.

Getting settled

Well, slowly I’m getting settled in San Diego. I’ve got a temporary driver’s license, an ADSL connection, a bank account and a job interview lined up for Tuesday. The driver’s license is only temporary because I still have to do the motorcycle test once my Vespa arrives in 2 weeks. The bus system’s pricing structure ...
