Slept well and long

Now I know, how long it lasts from waking up 'til driving away: 5 minutes. Wake up, shock: 6:00 a.m. put on my clothes, make some lunch for the day, no breakfast, put on my shoes, take my school-bag, close the house, start the car: 5 minutes. puh! 8 minutes to the railway-station, one minute too late, but: the train itself was 2 minutes too late, so I got it! What a start in a day, that brought me 9 lessons until 5:05 p.m.

My first girl

After 6 years of teaching in my 7th year I have the first girl in my electro-group. She wants to become something like a technical drawer. Or maybe a "Druckvorstufentechnikerin". Dont't mind what, but I have a girl that is interested in technique. Great!

autumns hike

Today we went together with Ursula, Clemens and his son Gabriel from Obsteig to "Adlerhorst" above Nassereith. About 10 minutes before we reached the point, the rain reached us and so we took the short way downhill and the parents of Clemens took us with the car back home. But it was a nice 2 hours hike. The best thing of all were the wonderful coloured trees (Rotbuchen). It was a very nice view. And because Obsteig is at 1000 m altitude, it was a horizontal hike with no up and downhill-hiking.

Great choir concert

Yesterday was the day we were waiting for for almost 1 year. It took a lots of rehearsals to finaly make it. And we made it! 175 visitors in the small hall, the last ones didn't even get a seat. We bought 20 bottles of Prosecco, but we ran out of it. We finaly sang better than the day before, and Andreas directed better than ever. We had to give two encores, and the applause didn't want to stop. So it was a great evening, even for us. It was a milestone in the choirs history: Never before they mad such an event without any musician, only a capella.
Afterwards we had a dinner at the "Fernsteinblick" and came home at 12:30 a.m. 21.10.2005. Unfortunately I had to get up today at 5.15 a.m.

public rehearsal

Today was the day of the public rehearsal of our concert. A lot of people came and enjoyed the event. We were nervous as usual and made some little mistakes, but the audience liked the show. Most the "Landsknechtständchen" were we got applause within the concert. I wonder what the recording will be. Either video and sound. A first thanks to the cameramen Philipp and Gregor for doing their jobs well. So go ahead for tomorrow!

Last rehearsal

Today was the final rehearsal without public listeners. Built up the stage, set up the light, mounted cameras and microphones, tested the standig of the choire. Philipp was cameraman, still-photo-cameraman, sound-manager and the one who told us how to make the best light. A girl from my neighbourhood managed the Spotlight and all invited assistants were here just at time. The sound was ok, especially when I remember the first time we sang the songs. I think we are ready for the public on wednesday.
I wonder how the sound and the film will be at the end. We have one DAT-recorder, one MD-recorder and three digi-cams. One of them is mounted fix in the background, one is at the side, and one will be the motion-cam hold by a person, filming additional scenes in the audience. Soon you will read more.

Biking in Innsbruck

From today on I have a bike at the main train station in Innsbruck, so i can drive through the town whenever I want. I tested it last saturday and found it useful. Tomorrow I will visit my pupils at their jobs with my bike. The locations are spread all over Innsbruck. I'm happily looking forward my bike tour tomorrow.

Biking in Innsbruck

It works fine. Every hour I have a train to Innsbruck. Today I took my bike with me when I went to Georgs Oktoberfest. As in Graz it was fine in Innsbruck too to go by bike through the town. 10 minutes to Georg. In the future I will place a bike next to the station in Innsbruck, so that I have it as I need it.

Train train

Finaly I did it! I bought a one-week-ticket from the vvt, stood up at 5:15 a.m. and got the train at 6:07 in Mötz. Five minutes from the station in Hall to the school by bike. Sure, a bit early, but half an hour half asleep sitting in the train is fine too. Now I'm going to test the way back home.

k3b downgrade

Yesterday I installed the testing-version of k3b. Then I wanted to burn a Cd, but k3b crashed whenever I added files to the project. So I downgraded to the stable-version. It works. Thats not what I wanted, but we will see what the future brings.

roaring deer

Today at 8.30 p.m. we met a friend and went into the wood of Holzleiten to have a look at the roaring deer. First we enjoyed the overwhelming look at the stars. You could almost see every little star of the milky way. Then we saw hundrets of glowworms on the floor, so it was a feeling like walking over a star field. Then we met the deer. It was about 20 m away. We couldn't see him, but we could hear the roaring and could smell him. A male goat smells like parfume. So imagin what a roaring deer smells like. Afterwards at 11 p.m. Clemens and I drank a Stiegl on his stairway. This sentense sounds funnier in german. "Wir tranken ein Stiegl auf der Stiegn".
