Met up with Dani, Christian and Nadia at 9pm to play pool in a billard bar near Weinmeisterstraße. Very enjoyable, though the spirits did a nose dive after a while. We ordered pizza which was kind of OK (had to fend off the bar's dog from our food, devious critter), and after two games we left to have a drink or two at Cafe Cinema. Just got home now.
What I actually wanted to say, is this:
Nadia had bought a pair of shoes quite a while ago from a second hand shop. Lovely, fancy things, white and delicate that do not fit her. So I was to have them to wear and flounce around in them. Gosh, they are beautiful.
Now, I finally seized the chance to wear them and... by the time I reached the bar, I was walking barefoot. Have been the whole night since then - never noticed before how clean Berlin's streets actually are. Hardly any glass shards or other kinds of litter. My feet were black by the time I came home, naturally, but not hurting from anything else but the shoes I had worn earlier. I know now why this gorgeous pair was resold. You cannot possibly wear them without abrasions and blisters on the heels and pressure marks along the toes. Satan must have fashioned them himself, no kidding.
I think we will sell them as well. Someone else be subjected to the pain, for despite all temptations, the ache cannot be possibly endured. Not on the long run, no matter how pretty they are.
A few happier notes: I bought Hitman- Blood Money for PS2 finally. Also started reading Going Postal by Pratchett, god, I love that man. And last but not least - I made fantastic Wok-food today: beef, spring onions, sesame oil, soy sauce, orange + orange juice, honey = YUMYUMYUM. Successful Saturday, Y/Y?
Der Unterschied zw. Skandinavistik und Anglistik - Ich habe in einer höflichen Email um einen Termin bei den jeweiligen Studienfachberatungen gebeten und bekam nun diese Antworten.Skandi:
herzlichen Glückwunsch zu deiner Immatrikulation und willkommen am Nordeuropa-Institut! (Ich hoffe, das skandinavische „du“ ist für dich ok.)

- :for the lulz, know thy enemy, orly?, random, rule britannia, scandinavia, some nice flowers, srsly you guys, the droids you've been looking for, the sound of brilliance, this is the life
Perhaps they were a dynasty or clan competing for power with Offa over the rule of the
Angles though Offa slew two Myrging princes probably the sons of Eadgils not to be
confused with the Swedish king Eadgils this Eadgils was later killed by Ket and Wig
the sons of Freawine a governor of Schleswig who challenged Eadgils to combat
while he was pillaging in the Angle lands, Freawine was killed in combat and the
Myrgings then probably captured Schelswig as they are said to have settled or had
holdings at Schelswig though eventually to be defeated by Offa.
Although the Myrgings only appear in the Old English poem Widsith and not in any other
source there is enough evidence to say that the Myrgings vanished leaving no trace
probably assimilated to the surrounding Angles or were successfully conquered by Offa
who was said to have won a great Kingdom which is most probably that of the conquered
Myrgings if so the Myrgings sense they no longer have a king anymore the only one to
submit to would be Offa.
I can't even point out what's more lulz-worthy. That whole entry is just one big uncredited rumble, tho the "not this Eadgils, but this Eadgils"-part is certainly a candidate. Oh Wikipedia. You never cease to amaze me.
Omigud, you guys. YOU GUYS. I got my BA-paper topic, finally. Guess what it is? That's right. FOR HONOR & GLORY

First things first:
So, I read this little essay miarr
had linked in her lj about the top ten misconceptions about Loki. Interesting read! There were some quotes in there, too, among other things about a seeress who told Odin secrets in exchange for money. After every secret she revealed, she asked asked "wit you more, or what?". That was so darn funny and kinda colloquial that I'll make a tag out of it. xD That's too great to pass up.
That aside, I had the sudden craving to draw Loki. But I am not entirely happy yet. :/ Da kann noch so einiges. Aside from the outfit (that I'll do another time when it's not 2am), I wondered about an accurate yet still unique hairstyle. I suck when it comes to hair. Also: Facial hair y/n? DECISIONS. I CANNOT MAKE THEM. Needs more freckles i hvert fall.
Any thoughts? It's not really him, is it? TOO JOCUND D: (haha, pointy ears)
