Xmess, [X] done (0 comments)
boah, the most annoying time of the year is done again... this year i evaded christmas as good as possible by doing loads of work for my company and the university. by avoiding to turn on the radio and the tv you can circumvent almost 70% of the fuss. the remaining 30% are stuff on hoardings, in the paper and on the internet. but well, it is finally done, so 'nuff ranting. ok, besides all the commercial crap, xmess is all about one thing: presents! yahooo... this year i really got a great one from my brother - a painting. this really fine piece of art was done in acryl on canvas. it's entitled "trace". at first i didn't really get it. take a look yourself here, maybe you'll find out... _spoiler-begin_: on the next lines you get the solution... yeah... on the left you have a footprint, on the right a trail from bottom to the top. you have some red and some lurid green spots all over the picture. the green spots enclose some bubbles. ok, if you know i'm an alien fan, it should now be pretty obvious what this all is about. the footprint was done by an alien, the trail is from its tail. the red spots are blood (guess my brother thinks aliens are always on a killing spree?) and the green stuff is slime. i love this one! _spoiler-end_ but not only receiving presents is great fun (mostly), also giving presents is a pleasure sometimes. especially if it's a trip to prague on New Year's Eve with a girl you really are in love with. yeah, right - zombiequeen and i will go to prague from 30th of december 2005 to the 3rd of january 2006. i'm sure this will be a great stay! pix will definitely be included in the next bLog-entry. meanwhile... happy new year, dudez'n'dudellaz...

another party report on boringLog... (0 comments)
oh yeah - the annual party called "winterfest" (abbreviated as "WTF") took place again yesterday at hagenberg, upper austria. this year it was not that frosty as the last wtf i attended, the drinks were cheaper (non-alcoholic for me, alcoholic ones for zombiequeen), the music was ok (poor DJ was sitting in the cold all the time...) and i enjoyed talking to a lot of people i met. additionally we had fun playing tabletop football. at first with lexx and phil, then with Eliza and Uetzguer. it was great fun and a great chance to rewarm. but the best thing from yesterdays evening was this: a stamp from thinkgeek! this cool present from H-nes really comes in handy for my daily office work. read what it says here (i really luv this stamp! - thx so much H-nes)! oh, and of course - as usual - here are the pix. happy xmess, dudez'n'dudellaz...

FIRST BLOGGER ON IBK-PARTY! (1 comments)
eye bee kay...what? i b k, short for innsbruck. yop, there's been a nice party at a party location provided by GangMan. and, as promised, i took loads of pics with the new cam... besides the party, it's been my first trip to innsbruck (and first trip to tyrol that lasted longer than 1 hour) so you'll find loads of pics of innsbruck too. i think the pics don't need any comments, you'll get what it was all about... all in all i really enjoyed the party because of the people that have been there (some of them have their internship or even their work place in germany), so seeing them again was really nice. oh, finally the pics.

a present for myself... (0 comments)
oh yeah! "reward yourself whenever you've finished a project!", the lecturer said in the time management lecture. ok, so i have done. my reward was a canon eos 350d, a DSLR (colloquially for "digital single lens reflex"). don't ask for what "project" this reward was. i guess for my last 3 semesters at the university of applied science in hagenberg - yeah, a quite exhausting and time-consuming project. and while it's not finished yet, at least 3 milestones have been done successfully! so, why is it brought up here in the boring-log? well, new cam means new pics! harhar... here are some hand-picked examples: * lilo_trilogy * lilo_unhappy * lilo_watching * lince_01 * lince_02 * phil_flower * red_tower * two_dragons and here is a cool sample pic done by zombiequeen: * tree a gallery of mixed pics done by zombiequeen and me is here: * dynamite05 ok, more to come after this weekend which i will spend in innsbruck at GangMan's party-place. guess some pics will be made there too...
