It's a bank holiday in Germany today (Tag der deutschen Einheit - celebrating the reunion of the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democrat Republic) . Apart from that I just got a mail from a professor who was so kind to spare me a practical course because I had done a similar and more extensive one when I studied chemistry.
Edit: I can add another smile. My favourite band (Therion, whodathunk?) released a new album (and it was really released by the band, not a label) which I don't have, yet. Thankfully youtube has it. It's great. The last one was a bit disappointing, so I'm relieved this one turned out great so far.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools if you don't get the joke it's your loss Love and laughter you see are the new currency 'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

It's a Dutch name, so I guess he doesn't really stuggle with it
@CB: Happy Tag der deutschen Einheit! I was stopped by a guy, who was speaking German, asking me the way to Vienna... I was stunned for a moment, not only because I haven't really spoken German for a really long time, but also because honestly, I had no idea how the poor chap should go to Vienna I had a bit of help from a bystander, who didn't speak German but knew the way, so together we managed... hope he won't get lost because of my poor explanation skills

I had a German couple stop me in Slovenia wanting directions to get to the capital; Ljubljana abd asking how far it was. I happened to know it was 83km away as I'd passed a road sign earlier that morning, but they clearly didn't believe me, even though I gave them a map I had. My thought after they'd gone was - go ahead, don't believe me. It's not me that's lost.
