  • About once a month I ponder this story of the guy who decided to end his life – and before doing so, blowing his money by spending it on hookers and blow and then came back from it: “Somewhere in the midst of my coke-fueled orgy, I decided life wasn’t so bad after all.” It’s not something I’m in the danger of doing, but it’s a compelling story.
  • I went for my daily walk a bit later than last week. And it’s quite a different thing to walk around a forest after the sun set.
  • Yay, my allergies are here.

"It’s a never-ending scroll of things, without structure, without separating the less important from the more important, without me, without focus."

Good article, but maybe with a bit of a selective memory. Many blogs, including mine, (hence the title) have been like this for the last almost two decades.

I want the blogs back

Where is the wonder, where’s the awe? Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for?

  • The sun is setting later and later and I’m making use of that by going for a walk before six these days.
  • I went to the last Mustermesse Basel ever – and it was as slightly weird as I remember it to be. Still sad to know it was the last one.
  • After I saw that the place I tend to go to have duck and dumplings has Char Siu now I went to give it a try – I quite like it! I might still get the duck the next time again, though.
  • Sunny day today – I wanted to go for a walk at one of the usual places where I take walks sometimes and I didn’t even make it out of the car at the car park, it was so crowded.
  • I bought the latest Civ IV expansion and wasted basically all my weekend on it. It’s fun, though. A lot harder than it used to be.
