Die Mai 13 23:31:37 CEST 2008


Today I changed the tires of my car to summer equipment. In addition I hoovered the car completely. I cleaned the front window and applied a nanoprotection to the windshield. Finaly I removed some pieces of rust and covered the places with petrolgreen enamel. Now the car looks almost new.

il caimano

I was at the cinema and looked "Il caimano". Interesting but strange film. I have to think about it. Even the beer afterwards with Gregor at the Weli didn't clear it up fully.

graz day 4

Woke up, get out of bed, dragged a comb along my head. Had no smoke and drank a cup. Looking up and noticed it was late...
Lizzy brought me to the station and I got the train. 6 hours later Lea waited for me and took me home. Thanks! That have been my easter-holidays!

graz day 3

Slept long again, went to the shopping mall with Lizzy and the kids. Had dinner there what was not easy because of the kids. Then I met Birgit and Rebecca and Florian, had a coffee and talked about this and that. Then I enjoyed a fine hour walking through the Conrad-shop. I found a lot of "Wanna-haves" but bought only Micro-switches and 25 LED's. It was fine though because I could see, what would be available. Then a visit at my fathers grave, he had his birth-day today. A short visit at my grandma finished the "outside-day". I had a fine evening with Martin, watching funny things at the PC and finaly I had another Settlers of Catan game with Lizzy that I won. Mailing finished my last day in Graz.

I had a fine day skiing at the Muttereralm. I tried the new slope down to Götzens and the new restaurant. Very fine outside: No "Hüttenmusik" but fine slow jazz music! The snow can be called "Sulz" now and the better slope for me was down to Götzens.
At the final downhill-drive I noticed the open door at the old middle-station at the Nockalm. The old funicular gondola railway was in operation from 1953 until 2000. So I went in and took some pictures. Have a look at one:

OeBB Vorteilscard

Last week:
I went to the station in Innsbruck and asked if it is true and possible to get -30 % on the price for the Vorteilscard when I show the IKEA-familycard. The answer was: "Yes, we can do it right now if you want." - "No thanks, I will search for an actual picture and come next week."
15 minutes before the departure of the train to my sister: "Here I am, I want the Vorteilscard with -30% because of the IKEA-family card." Answer: "Sorry, but that's not possible. You _have_ to buy a temporary card at IKEA and then fill out the form to get the real Vorteilscard sent to you. So you get the minus 30 %". "What? You're joking!". So I had to buy a full-price-ticket to travel to my sister.
I bought the card at IKEA in Salzburg for 69 instead of 99 EUR. We drove home and I wanted to print out the order-form to get the real card. While doing that I came to the point "upload a picture" and said NO. I had the picture in my hand and wanted to add it to the form physicaly. The page said: To use the IKEA card advantage you _must_ upload a picture online. Waaaahhhh!
Godthanks I could print out a ticket back home using the temporary card number for a 50%-ticket.
Next joke:
I took a ticket "Riedersbach - Innsbruck" because I have a ticket "Innsbruck - Mötz". Payed 20.30 EUR. After doing and paying that I tested Scotty, the System "From home to home". I said "Riedersbach - Obsteig" and got an offer with bus, same train and another bus from Innsbruck to Obsteig. Cost: 19,50 EUR. What? Longer distance - fewer price? Normaly I had to pay additional 2,30 EUR using the bus to Obsteig instead of the train to Mötz.

devils haircut

Because of a comunication problem I got a devils haircut. "The distance device is plugged in" versus "The distance device is _not_ plugged in". It was noticed too late what was the truth. This is the song to the devils haircut.

The husband of my best friend of the choir came under an avalanche on saturday. They think, he will not survive. That takes me down at the moment. Last August they got their third child.

painting event

From Friday 'till Saturday 4 p.m. I was with the group "Mesnerhaus" and painted two pictures. It was fine for me to take the time and let my creativity out without any disturbing. Painting is a wonderful thing for seeing the world with different eyes.

I had Sylvesters evening in a circle of friends from Obsteig round an open fire at the crossing of a road. Until 11 p.m. we were astonished about the silence. Then only rare rockets found their way to the sky. From 23:55 until 00:20 we had fine fireworks around us and then silence again. We listened to the radio and finally sang our own songs round the fire. It was a fine turnaround of a year and I wonder what it will bring to me. I am sure, it will not be easy, but I will handle it. For sure!

Schwamm drüber

On saturday I was at a cabaret from Gerhard Sexl about school. There were a lot of things to lough about! Many recognizeabel scenes and teacher-types. But there also was acknowledgement to the teachers work. In fact Gerhard Sexl is an active teacher himself. It was a fine evening with friends.
