Week 1

So, Martin/@schneyra is doing this thing where he recaps his own weeks. (Here is week number 1.) And because I am me, I am now going in all gung-ho into this and do it, too.1

January 2nd, 2012

So, here we go, first workday of the week and while the streets were blissfully empty – as they were all week – nothing much changed.

There was some fun on Twitter in the evening, though, the hashtag #lessambitiousbook.

War mal im Fernsehen

This was the (only) highlight of the day. It translates to:

Was on TV once.

For some reason everybody looked up the song that was on top of the single charts on their birthday. Mine was Roland Kaiser’s Santa Maria.

♬♪ Sie war ein Kind der Sonne, schön wie ein erwachender Morgen… ♪♫

My co-worker Evghenie (@svinohod) brought his own big-ass monitor to work and was really proud about it.

Also, this happened.

After getting to work through a scary, scary snow/rain/thunder/end-of-the-world storm, I coined the term Chrononormativism – I was proud as fuck. Nobody really noticed, though.

And I wasted all in all way too much time with the Pony Creator.

I still can’t believe those heathens in North Rhine-Westfalia don’t recognize Epiphany as an official public holiday. May they burn in hell.

Talking about hell – my lunch was rice and Club Mate and the soundtrack of the day was the Portal 2 soundtrack, which I got via Mrgan.

REAMDE 2


  1. Very soon it will become very obvious that my weeks are all pretty much the same and all pretty much boring. But, here we go. 
  2. Yes, the whole weekend I did nothing but read Reamde by Neal Stephenson. Maybe at some point I’ll write a short review – but for now it should suffice to say that I loved it a lot and everybody should read it.
