The Invasion of the Living Room

barbara branches

Traditionally around the 10th of december I wake up thinking:
"Hey, aren’t I supposed to pick Barbara branches somewhat nowish? Oh, no it’s too late now I should have done it a week ago ...!"
Yo’re to pick branches of spring blossoming woods at the fourth of december, and to put them in a vase (with water) and in a warm room so they will (with some luck) be in bloom around christmas time.
But this time I remembered! Despite having lain on the couch all day with a bad migraine, I got up in the evening, put on my boot and went out, not to the apple tree, because of snow beeing in the way but to the forsythia standing right there by the street. And one day later I got out again and did the whole round: witch hazel, dogwood, southern beech ...

And I’ve got proof!

I think some of the buds are already beginning to swell.

I’m afraid the pictures don’t show much detail,
but turned out to be all artsy-fartsy.
Which I think is great by the way - but just not what I had in mind.

That’s no christmas decoration. That’s little moons, invading my flat, seeking shelter from the cold.

Did you get some yourself? Barbara branches? Moons?

Bit City Streets

I don’t know about you, but for me the inside of a computer always looks like a strange map of a - very green and eco-friendly - major city.
Odd thing, my head.

But look:

Can you see the northbridge mall? With all the small cars parking on the roof?
And all the channels of the big harbour?
The warehouses?
The roads?


hardware

I think this block is some part of the paper industry


hardware

I honestly don’t know ... maybe a new form of igloo-shaped homes?


hardware

The city railway (with the broken power socket central post office blurred in the background)


hardware

All that green may be parks ...

And here’s the power plant, the heart of the beast.
(Actually it’s a ordinary coin battery powering the BIOS, which, in my case, is empty for about a month now and needs replacing anyway. Good thing I dropped the ...


Update:
As you may have noticed the patient is nearly healthy again.
The 'del' key isn’t working and the clock is running an hour late.
But apart from that it’s working fine.

Thanks my dear!

'Goldener Oktober' revisited

Well, it’s November now, and cold and snow and yukky,
but not so long ago it was still October, warm, sunny and dry.
