You little blighter ๐Ÿ˜› !!

Bubs sent me a letter (for Halloween and Christmas) and I got it today.
I got home from work, checked my mail and there it was – a big fat envelope. It was soo unexpected! And it made me smile the whole way from the mail-box to the house-door, from the house-door to the elevator, from the elevator to my apartment ๐Ÿ™‚

From Bubs <3

It was unexpected because I gave her my address for Enid (who now is in California) and now I got all this lovely Hello Kitty stuff! I love it ๐Ÿ’ก

kittyI’m keeping my eye on a Hello Kitty Mouse. Here in Germany you pay 20 Euro (about 30 Dollar) for it, in the States you pay $2. GAH! ๐Ÿ™

And I just found this post at (scroll down) and now I want a sticker like that for my lovely pink laptop. I wonder if I’ll find something like that here in Munich. Probably not ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

A meme
Category: Uncategorized

I’ve been tagged by Lene and seeing everybody is doing it I’m going to answer it as well, and here is what I have to do:

  • List five vices you have, with a description if you want to.
  • Tag five bloggers for this meme.
  • Link back to the blogger who tagged you, and this post if you want to be nice!

1. Drinking Coffee
Drinking coffee, for me, is a vice. I love it – two spoons of sugar (which is a vice as well), some milk. I try to only drink one cup a day, which isn’t bad. I know people who’ll drink 5 – 10 cups.

2. Picking my lips
I pick my lips – all the time. If I leave the house and forget my lip-balm, that’s a terrible experience for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

3. Not doing enough sports
I know I have a bad knee, I know I have to do sports to build up muscles so that I don’t have any problems at the age of 30. And I’m so lazy. The lover has to push me. We started walking last week, going again today (nordic walking).

4. Procrastination
No matter if something is important or not, I’ll procrastinate. And that’s not good

5. Stubborn and Bullheaded
Too much at times, the lover suffers from it…

iPhone: I’m going to tag: Bubs, Helga, Seriya, Ashley and Melissa (if they haven’t been tagged already).

Melissa got a new phone. Rather, the Apple iPhone. And she took a picture of my site :), not only of my site, but of others too – nice looking ๐Ÿ™‚ Now I know what my site looks like on an iPhone. It looks like it’s using a 1024 x 900/1000? Resolution.

Seeing I’m plugging sites at the moment anyways, go check out, a site made by Ben and Rachael.

…CSSbake focuses on the little details…

Go and suggest sites (if you’re bored and don’t know what else to do) โ—

Meeting an online friend
Category: Uncategorized

I’m excited. It’s not 100% yet, but I might be meeting my long-term online friend Bine from Dresden. She’s probably visiting Munich in March with her boyfriend, I really hope they’re coming, and then we would meet.
Exciting – I’ve never met one of my online friends. I, in generally, know less people from Germany who post blogs or in forums. None of my friends have a site.

Have you ever met some/one of your online friends? If no, would you want to? If yes, was it awkward?

The Search Queries of my last post all went to those posts:

  • Just a Hello

    for the boob links – I even posted some lovely drawings
  • I’m a caprihorn

    for the pimple links – “horns” growing out of me

I’m off to work, wishing you a lovely day ๐Ÿ˜†

Search Queries
Category: Uncategorized

I thought I’d check my search queries for and I came up with the following searches:

  • How do I get rid of the pimples on my boob?
  • Why do I get zits on my face one week before my period
  • Red dots forehead zits
  • boobs disappear when i lie down
  • booby pictures

Heh. ๐Ÿ˜€

What are some of your weird search queries?

Research Fun

As some of you know, I’ve started my lovely Thesis about TerraSAR-X on Monday.

Until now I’m doing researches, I went to the library and got lots of books about SAR, Radar… last week, I discovered Google Books I’ve been reading a lot.

Seeing I did quite some reading, I figured it was time to write the basic principles of SAR and Radar. So, full of enthusiasm I opened Word and then – then I just sat there. I didn’t know how to start and what the hell to write. I’ve heard that’s normal though, so I’m not worrying at the moment. I still have lots of time (which, I bet, will just fly).

Thanks again all Snarkers for replying to this thread. I ordered a Dell last night. They had an offering until February 26st, which made the laptop I ordered 60 Euro cheaper than usually. โ“

I tried to keep the laptop as cheap as possible, seeing I have a great Dell desktop (I prefer desktops) and only need the laptop for my thesis (how spoiled does that sound). Ah, I was so happy that during my five years of studying I wasn’t the typical student who had a laptop. I thought I’d never be the owner of one (well, I do have a laptop at the moment, it’s my mom’s with rocking 128mb RAM and 3GB disk space) and now, as of March 20th, I’ll be an owner as well. The laptop will cost me 600โ‚ฌ ((about $880, 450 pounds)), that’s money I currently don’t have and I’m happy to have an older sister who’s working and will lend me that money. I’ll pay her back on a monthly basis.

I actually didn’t want a laptop seeing I don’t need it necessarily (it’s just so much more practical), but now I’m looking forward to it.

As said above, I tried to keep the laptop as cheap as possible, I did order two luxury items though, I couldn’t resist.

flamingo-pink dell
The Flamingo-Pink Cover (I’m such a sucker for pink ๐Ÿ™‚ )

A glossy true-life screen (also after reading this blog entry)

It’s the Inspiron 1525 with Vista Home Premium (I can’t wait to see how that OS looks like) it has a 15.4 inch screen, 2GB RAM, no dual-core processor and no camera (who needs a camera).

Do you prefer laptops or desktops? Why?

Entertaining Links
Category: Uncategorized

I have been a member of quite some time but never really engaged with it. Until today. I installed the Firefox plugin for it and stumbled around the web. Here are some nifty pages I found:

Raings taken from Motion Picture Association of America hehe ๐Ÿ˜›

Now for those readers who don’t give a *** about links, here my lifestory.

After bragging on Sarai’s blog a few days ago about not being sick in about a year – BAM – it hit me and I ended up having my booty hanging over the toilet the whole Friday and my face hanging in my Hello Kitty trash can.

I felt like a fountain – just not as nice to look at.
On the top front and middle behind it came out like water (that’s why the fountain-feeling).

This stomach flu lasted the whole Friday, and then, Saturday, it was all over. Of course I had circulation problems and headache which made me feel worse. The fountain part wasn’t even all this bad (well, it’s not fun either), but after going to the toilet I felt good. But because I guess I didn’t drink enough and didn’t have enough fluids in me the headache got worse. Oh well, today it’s all good again so tomorrow I can go into work with a cleaned out body and new strength (um, yeah…)
