tar czf and then a mv

We are just packing our stuff together and then moving to the outskirts; combined with post-beamtime and pre-beamtime, together with post-semester, in-break course and pre-semester, in addition two papers and buying a new piezo scanner: not much time to update the k-raum.

green, finally!

Now that I have more time, I finally managed to fill in the 16 digits called "Stromzählernummer", so Greenpeace energy knows the number of our counting board. Former nuclear supplier gets a typewritten adieu.

Please change, too.

Die nächste Letzte ist vorbei

Die nächste Letzte ist vorbei. Die fünfzehnte Ausgabe der junien-LAN-Party in Hagen endete heute Mittag, nach drei Tagen LAN, Känguruh-Boxen und Bobbycarturnier. Es gab #quiz-Bot, "kein" Flunkyball, viel Bier und umstrittene Pizza.

Wir warten auf die Jungs von lanparty.de, dass sie meine Bildergalerie freischalten. Link folgt dann.

Gute Nacht und bis nächstes Jahr.

Fr 4. Nov 20:29:22 CET 2011 (Pizza @ junien)

Dissertation zur Druckerei gebracht und dann auf zur junien gefahren. Laptop läuft, Netz ist auch da, gleich kommt das Intro.

Ein internetweiter Bring-Dienst verteilt Kekskrümmel als Gratis-"Pizza". Die vollständigen Versionen kann man — wie gewohnt — kaufen. Gleicher Preis, gleiche Größe wie im letzten Jahr. Aber leider nicht die versprochene Paprika- Pizzen. Schade.

Salami und Hawaii tun sich gut. Soße ist sehr fluid; manche finden, es sei zu viel Käse, ich bin zufrieden; Größe angemessen. Nicht ganz stabil, fettig wie 2010. Aber fein heiß.

Wartezeit: Leider sehr lang, da ein Teil der Pizzen kleingehackt verschenkt wird.

Last weekend and this weekend

I forgot to write about last weekend which was really nice. Lizzie and I talked the supersecret knitting project through and made a plan. Tomorrow we meet again and start phase 2. That is if I finish phase 1a today and 1b tomorrow. That's why I'm knitting like crazy right now...

There has been other stuff last weekend: I spent some quality time with my family, including my cute and headstrong niece of two and a half. She even called me afterwards to tell me she had olives which she just loves. Strange taste for a little girl but I find that very endearing! I only didn't see one of my sisters but she'll hopefully come to visit at my father's birthday so I'll see her soon.

Back to knitting... That's what lizzie and I did mostly while I was at hers... I made some progress on the striped socks, but we didn't have the time to block the skulls socks.

When I came back home I found a postcard from MalTea from Paris! Very nice! And some bills and the slip of paper that allows me to vote in the upcoming election.

And after this quick update, I get back to knitting...

Prepping for the weekend II

Lizzies post inspired me to blog about the upcoming weekend too. Of course I already made various lists, no need to say how very ette that is of me. Because, you know, I'm me... :D But I rather enjoyed that comment, lizzie!

I'm gonna drive to my parents tomorrow and stay there till Tuesday, sneaking in a day at lizzie's. Today's the day of getting ready and getting things in order, the actual packing will start tomorrow morning.

I finished the skull stocking knitting project on Wednesday and as soon as dear osti explained to me how to upload pictures here, I'll post about it. (Waving whole fences at osti :D) Before I block it I really need to decide if I want to repair the little error in it or not. As I'm very unsure about that, I'll take them to lizzie who also will help me block them. I never done that before and can use some help.

Next knitting project in line is the supersecret one. This whole project is upsetting and exciting and I will explain everything about it when it's delivered. I really want a second pair of eyes from a fellow awesome knitter (Hello Sweetie! *waves to lizzie*) on that one. In the meantime I'm knitting a pair of striped socks.

This weekend will be dedicated to family, knitting and reading. I plan on packing a bunch of books and get through some while MalTea is on vacation, trying to take the lead on the challenge we have going on on twitter.

So far so good. That's the list for today:

  • getting my laptop ready to take it with me
  • gather things for supersecret knitting project
  • spend an hour or two organising my storage attic
  • deal with the stack of papers on my desk

Btw lizzie: We already settled on the color of the thrums! Months ago I told you she wanted them all... I'm really sure about that. Nevermind: Multi-coloured, she wants multicolored, you can start now :D

And... I'll be bringing cherry liqueur. First because we both gonna need it with "Big Blue" and the supersecret knitting project, second because I have it, third because it tastes good, fourthly because elderly ladies drink liqueur, gossip and knit and we'll be doing exactly that. I'd bring a gray-haired wig with short curls if I only had one! :D And last but not least because I like the German saying "Denn wer Sorgen hat, hat auch Likör." which translates to "If you have worries, you have liqueur, too.". It's nice to sit down with a friend and drink a glass or two when everything's gray. Not that everything's gray in the moment... And I don't recommend that as the only problem solving method. As lizzie stated nicely not long ago, I live in a town where this kind of problem solving is the cause for most problems :D
