Talking about insights.. (Berlin Wall)

..i found an original present for my best friend: Painted pieces of the Berlin wall in a small black frame.

In order to remember this moment will mention a conversation i had with one of my work collegues, while 'picking up' the shapeless fragments from the wall.
He wanted to give me as a present on my bday some pieces of the wall (terrible cool!!!!). But... he was the only one who thought of it as a good idea, cause he got an answer like: 'What do u mean take some pieces from the wall?! Let's buy some.'

ahh.. buy them ?!?!?!?! :))

My music

A song that one can easily listen.. in an infinite loop:
Sad Robot - Pornophonique

Another song that i find ok, as through my veins flows a latin blood, is:
Dejame vivir - La Mari de Chambao

From a B to another B...

No, the post isn't about relationships, but about 'my towns'. Living for almost 24 years in a B city, 'passing' for 2 years through an H city ( more exactly HH ) i got to another B city. From a capital city to another. ;-)

Sei multi, sei kulti, sei Berlin!

My 1st picture since i moved here:

I love this game

I went yday to a Euroleague BBL game: Alba Berlin vs. Fenerbahce Istanbul.
Great game. Great atmosphere. It was definitively worth it. 9,90€ instead of 19,90€. There was an offer @Kaiser's (siehe here), where you could have bought a coupon (i.e gutschein) and valite it in internet.

O2 Arena

Alba Berlin fans

Fenerbahce Istanbul fans + Alba Berlin team in blue / yellow.

Alba still fighting..

Alba trophies over 13 years. I got to witness the last victory (more here).

13000 people.

the ticket...

...in comparison with the ticket to an NBA game:
The atmosphere here wasn't that cool. The game pretty cool but the fans are part of the success of a game. ;-)

Marktkauf => Kaiser's

Moving to another city means more than just changing the room, the building, the neighbour(s)hood, but also about changing the supermarket.
Lidl, Aldi, Plus, Penny will be everywhere. A little bit harder to find but they are always there.. when u need them. ;-)
The closest as it was in Harburg is another supermarket. The old Harburger Marktkauf is replaced by Kaiser's in Prenzlauer Berg. There is unfortunately a difference. Kaiser's is more expensive. But is the only one opened till 24, Mo-Sa.
Went there on Saturday cause I couldn’t make it to Lidl on time and neither to the other Kaiser's closer to my home & opened till 22. Bought 1l milk (3,5%, cheapest, from the fridge), cheese (white+yellow+brie), 4x125g yogurt = 5.07€ . Not more than 10 people inside. The verkäuferInnen were becoming friends with the customers. I was pretty quite. Smiled just a little. At the line I saw that the guy in front of me got some [Lindt] candies. :O:O 'Damn, it is because he knows the people or just because he got into a long and 'funny' discussion with them. Buuuuuuut.. to my surprise.. I also got a hand full of candies.
They are so expensive they give candies for free. And not from the cheap ones..

Gaming - Stereotype for ITs?

If somebody mentions IT, Computer Science, Informatics, dsfsrevcsd[i.e any word]-Informatics immediately the connection to computer games is made in the head of the one who listens. Why? Is there something that u automatically do when u are IT-afine? More than any other person? I personally never liked to play computer games. Maybe it is also because i used to see my brother play strategic games and I found it sort of boring [sorry, don't want to hurt anybody's feelings]. Or maybe it is because I used to get beaten by my brother in games like shah, "don't get upset, brother" [i.e 'nu te supara, frate!' hehe].
During the university I used to hear all the times the students leaving in the dorms telling stories about how great one game or another one is. Never been drawn by it.
2 weeks ago it was my 1st time. ja ja. playing computer games. ;-)
A little sceptic at the begging as the other person really thought of it as a good idea to spend the eve. haha. So.. I said.. what the hell?! Let’s give it a try. Everything needs to be done at least once. ;-)
The game?! Unreal terminal tournament (here). And?! Does it sound familiar? Not to me.
It was ok. For a short while, a nice distraction. For the 1st time, same. For the last time, never say never, but I will at the moment.

PS: The conversation started with :
1:'Was willste denn heute abend machen? Ins Kino gehen? Nee, es ist zu teuer. Ahh. ich habe 'ne Idee. Zocken!'
2:'Ahh bestimmt wird sie sich freuen.' [i.e the stereotype i was mentioning]
3:'Aber es ist zu kalt draussen'
1,3:':-s :O :-? Haste wirklich verstanden?'
3:'ähhmmm..BBL spielen?!?!?!'
1,2: ':))))))))'
3:':"> Für mich ist zocken aber : bbl spielen'
Zocken heißt einfach in Umgangssprache spielen. Aber was für ein Spiel? Dasjenige Spiel, das einer am liebsten spielt. Wenn man mit einem BBL-Freak spricht, geht's für diesen um BBL. Wenn einer lieber Computerspiele spielt, dann der meint Computerspiele spielen.
