Posts Tagged ‘Berlin’

Today is a bank holiday in Germany, celebrating the German reunification on Oct 3, 1990. While the Reunification was legally completed at this date, the important fall of the Berlin Wall was on November 9 1989.

Ironically the first (and last) gay film produced in East Germany premiered at this very night, November 9 1989, the end of the DDR. The film’s name is “Coming Out” which again is quite ironic, considering the citizens of East Germany could “come out” of their country and go to West Berlin in this very night for the first time since the Berlin Wall was erected in 1961.

Philipp, a closeted teacher, is dating a female colleague. One night, by ‘accident’ he stumbles into a gay bar, meets and promptly falls in love with a young man…

The film premiered in one of my favourite cinemas in Berlin, the Kino International in Berlin Mitte.

Back again with another post of the “thing” that keeps annoying me. Today’s post is an example of what he can do with two pairs of his shoes…

It‘s not getting any better. This is how he left his shoes Wednesday after work. And they remained there until Thursday evening, as I stopped putting them away. In the meantime he even left another pair of shoes in the middle of the hallway, I didn’t manage to take a picture though, without him noticing. The brown shoes you can see in the background are his, too. I’m not complaining about those… Didn’t figure out yet whether there is a system behind it…

Well, the shoe issue continues. Last night his shoes made it to the bedroom, where they still are now… :)

(By the way, in case you wonder whether I’m a bit bored… Yes, indeed :) I’m sick at home and listening to Wagner’s Lohengrin (about 4 hours) at the moment. That’s one of the good things about being sick. You can read and listen to some stuff you’re usually too busy for. Listening and watching operas is one of these things, especially if it comes to Wagner. Tristan und Isolde is next…:)

Just got an award (“Liebster Blog Award”) by fellow blogger Verschwende Deine Zeit, a blog with wonderful pictures and anecdotes of everyday life’s curiosities in Berlin.

I’m completely speechless, this is why I have to quote Kathy Griffin‘s acceptance speech at the 2007 Emmy Awards which stirred up quite a controversy. I just can’t put this into words myself. I just hope, Bill Donohue won’t chase after me now…

As far as I understand the rules of this award, it’s up to me now, to give this award to five fellow bloggers. As I’m fairly new to WordPress, I still have to figure that out! If you’re interested, please let me know :)

(I kind of like the word speechlessness now… )
