And if you know our bed, you know that a) it's huge, almost as big as the whole room, and b) the frame is screwed to the rest of the thing so you can't lift it to reach below for cleaning.
Yes, I had fun today XD

However, I also got myself a referral to an allergist. I really, really need to talk to someone about this crap now, and if it's only to make plans for getting shots during the winter. Oh, and maybe, he/she will give me some better meds, too :D

We changed plans for my family's visit tomorrow. We'll take them to that awesome Chinese restaurant in Oberhausen. Yay ^^

And now... we travel back in time.

1. Who was your favorite teacher?
That was without a doubt my eighth/ninth grade English teacher, Herr Schatz. Mmh... I do wonder what he's up to these days...

2. Why was that teacher so special?
He was somewhat strict compared to the others, but very friendly with it, and always had a silly joke at the ready. He really made us work a lot, but damn, it was worth it. Actually, I liked doing those vocabulary cards a lot. I think it was him who got me on the way of becoming the English geek I am today, and I'm eternally grateful for that. Maybe I should write him a letter one of these days. Too bad he was such a relentless P.E. teacher at the same time *lol*

3. Do you think teachers get paid enough?
Hell no. Just look at teenagers these days. They're dumb, evil monsters who're only itnerested in drinking, their cellphones and goddamn HipHop. Well, most of them are. And I bet they're a nightmare to deal with. Regardless, teachers in Germany have the reputation of being lazy and whiny. Poor people. Glad I'm out of that kind of job prospect forever *shudders*

4. Do you have a favorite year of school?
Probably the last one. People really got along because... well, we weren't fourteen anymore ;) Also, we got to eat cake in biology on Fridays and asked our teacher useful questions about sunburns and such. What fun XD

5. If you could travel back in time and tell yourself something now that would have helped you get through school, what would you say?
"Hang in there. They're not worth it. You'll find better friends than them soon. Believe me, you'll be amazed."
Yesterday, [ profile] yamasagi and me spent a couple of hours lowering the new TV (it's taller than the old one and prevented us from using the projector) and replacing a lot of cables. I rewired the two rear speakers (part of our surround system). With those, you don't just plug in some connector, but you have to cut off a bit of the sheathing at the tip, twist the many copper strings inside so that none of them bends outside, and then stick that into the back of the speaker. Yours truly cut her thumb doing that, but at least the damn things actuallly work =)

Also, while Yama was doing the other cables, I made myself useful by filling up his glass of lemonade and flinging pieces of chocolate across the table in his general direction XD

We also watched DBV-T for the first time ever. We got an antenna so that, in case of severe thunderstorms, we're not cut off from watching TV. Unfortunately, DVB-S is damn vulnerable to weather conditions, while DVB-T doesn't seem to give a damn. It was weird to use that antenna, though, as something like it seems totally obsolete nowadays. But hey, it's digital now, so it still looked pretty good!

Anyway. At this rate, I might take some pics and do a guided tour of this place I so aptly named "Geek-O-Rama". It's clean and rather tidy right now. Also, I love living here so it kinda makes sense ^_~
