Wenn man sowieso schon der Überzeugung ist, daß das Internet vor die Hunde geht, dann ist dies ein weiterer Datenpunkt, um diese Theorie zu unterstützen. ᔥ@dreamseer

I am listening a lot to podcast lately. Here’s my list as of today, in no apparent order:

Yes. Slightly too many.

Fuck Yeah AZN Girls in Kermit Suits and Friends

So, I just had the weirdest encounter, ever.

I was grocery shopping at the real in Bilk, queuing at one of the always too full and too few cashiers. Suddenly the woman in front of me turned around and stared at me. Really intense.

Now usually this doesn’t happen. At least not to me. Being the always suave and collected person that I am, I couldn’t really think of anything else than stare back. Think rabbit and headlight.

Either way, it was her turn to pay and when she was done with that and the cashier woman started to scan my stuff, she turned back to me:

“Is your name Dominik?”

Now you might remember, just now I already pointed out my extreme quick-wittedness. And that was, when I was just being stared at. Not when some complete stranger (who, even though that’s not such a big part of the story, was actually rather pretty and around my age) seems to know me and asks that question in English.
So, I did manage to say: “Eh, yes…?!” Which made her laugh. Which just added to my confusion. Before I could ask her, who she is or why she knew my name:

“Das macht sieben Euro und fünfundsiebtzich Tzent!”

the cashier woman interrupted.
I paid and when I turned back, she was gone.

I picked up my stuff, looked around both in the cashier area and outside the supermarket, but I couldn’t find her anymore.

So, uh… if anyone of you is (or know) a roughly end-20s/early 30s woman, living in the southern part of Düsseldorf, about 1.70m with blue-grey eyes and long dark hair, who speaks accent-free English: who? why? what?

Yes, I’m confused and slightly paranoid.

Sign of the times: I’ve published it on Solipsism, my blog on, before I even thought about posting it here.

Petition gegen den Aufbau einer Internetzensurinfrastruktur

Vermutlich haben alle drei Leser meines Blogs das auch bereits per Twitter oder in einem anderen Blog gesehen, aber auch hier möchte ich noch einmal auf die Petition: Internet – Keine Indizierung und Sperrung von Internetseiten hinweisen, die verhindern soll, daß in Deutschland Netzsperren eingeführt werden. Bitte zeichnet diese Petition.

Meine Güte, was bin ich gerade genervt. Vor ‘ner Woche oder zwei hatte meine Frau einige Schuhe und ein, zwei Kleider, die sie nicht mehr getragen hat, auf eBay verkauft. Und eigentlich waren bis dahin meine Erfahrungen mit eBay, sowohl wenn wir etwas gekauft als auch wenn wir etwas verkauft haben, im Großen und Ganzen sehr positiv. Aber was da im Moment abgeht, ist ja wirklich der Hammer. Die Leute bezahlen spät, die Nachrichten/Fragen sind teilweise so krude und hanebüchen gestellt, daß selbst ich1 keinerlei Sinn darin finden kann und dann wird gemeckert, daß man Schuhen, die man für irgendwie fünf Euro gekauft hat, ansieht, daß sie getragen wurden. Und wenn ich jetzt noch damit anfange, daß es einen Herren gibt, der seine Adresse nicht richtig angeben kann, wir die Sendung wieder zurückbekommen und er dann sofort mit Anwälten und Pipapo droht – dann stelle ich doch fest, daß ich keine Lust mehr auf eBay habe.
