We knew when we bought the house that the heating system would have to be replaced: it’s 25 years old, the previous owner warned us, etc. We decided we’d do it in spring, when it was warm and we didn’t need heat or hot water for the two days it would take, but due to a few sets of crossed signals (once we forgot to call them, once they forgot us, I don’t know what happened the other time) during the month when it was so fabulously sunny and warm and wonderful, they came (by appointment) today. To leave our doors open and us without heat for six hours. Now that it’s winter again. Sigh.
Lucky for me, I got to go work in Munich! And all I did was work today, so I’ll just pass you over to a few more interesting things.
Why don’t more people write movie reviews like this?
Bwaaahahaha! Welcome to Bavaria! Yep, that is pretty much what it’s like here.
You know, one of the things Euroskeptics are worried about is that all the different European countries will lose their individual identity and become one big monocultural blob. I’d say it’s not time to worry yet: I doubt that anyone not from Romania would ever have come up with something like this.
And finally, I do not have nearly enough regular commenters to get anything really good going, but I also don’t have any better place to ask these questions, so here goes:
- Severus Snape: Good? Or evil?
- Would those of us who want him to be good care even remotely as much if he were not played by Alan Rickman (*swooooon*) in the movies?
