    So I ordered something from the US and expected it to take a long time to get through German customs. Well, as it turns out, the package left Chicago a week ago and is still in New York ... it hasn't even left the US yet! Now I am afraid to think how long it might take through the notoriously slow German custom service (especially during Christmas season!). They often need two to three weeks to process packages. But I did not expect USPS to work with the precision and speed of a Teutonic buerocrat!

    why oh why do I have to be so damned competitive against people who have more practice than I do?!? I won, but I don't think there's a single bit of my body from the knees and below that doesn't hurt at the moment

    I am so sick of hearing about Psy and Gangnam Style... when will it die? Even all the girly looking idols (who make Bieber look manly) are better..

    So great to be off when the weather is bad but I got to face it. Way too early in the morning.
