taking pics of lilo... (1 comments)
since i got this really great book, called "Katzen digital fotografieren" (publisher "Markt und Technik", ISBN 3-8272-4085-9) from zombiequeen, i got some inspiration to take some pics of lilo. and the book was worth its price! they said one needs patience, patience, and loads of... (guess what) patience! and i had patience. surprisingly, lilo was pretty patient too. although i saw she didn't really enjoy it, at least she admitted taking pics of her. lucky me! after the photo-session, lilo got some whiskas crunch, which she enjoys so much. meow.

end of leisure time... (1 comments)
today was my first working day again after 16 days of absence in the office. since my life is boring, there's not too much to report, but just a few really boring things... firstly, while being at home, i finished some games i always wanted to play but never had the time to, either because i was writing my diploma-thesis, or there was no spare-time due to work overload in the company. so here's my list of games i did in approximately 2 weeks: + Unreal 2: the shooter basically is pretty ok, but i was grievously missing a real link to Unreal (aka as U99 or Unreal 1). + FarCry: not really my style of FPS, and at the end i actually got bored, so i somehow cheated by doing quick-saves and -loads. + Halflife 2: yes, that's my kind of shooter. i really enjoyed it. as much as i did HL1 back in the late 90s. i enjoyed every single level. + Halflife 2 - Episode 1: the sequel to HL2. same fun as with HL2. nice sequel, nice storyline. + Doom 3: YES! it's definitely the most tense, horrifying, and scary FPS i ever played. extremely dark, creating a great atmosphere by using sound- and lighting-effects. also the levels and monsters have a astonishing level of detail. definitely my favourite. also i like the main-menu title by chris vrenna, former drummer of NIN. maybe because it does sound like a tool-song... secondly my latest alien stuff i won on eBay arrived at the office in the meantime - yippieh...

fire in the hole! (3 comments)
while playing halflife2 - episode1 yesterday night, i suddenly heard a big bang and the ceiling was illuminated by a bright orange light. at first i thought it was a firework, or some kind of bengal fire. so i rushed to the window to have a closer look. well, it was a car that caught fire. strange enough the fire brigade was already there. so i grabbed my camera and took some pictures.

at home... (1 comments)
well, nothing really worth to mention, but just to keep on writing my bLog, and since my sick leave will last for a few more days, here's another entry. staying at home, forced to do nothing is really enjoyable (let's see how long i will still enjoy it). i finished unreal 2, halflife 2, and bought halflife 2-episode 1 today to do a little gaming. additionally i bought an eskimo music-box (a box with 10 different ice flavours and a bonus CD) to get a cool CD by christina stuermer, "nie genug". the single-CD also includes the tv-spot for an eskimo advertising spot. another "high-lite" of this day was this police-duo (one man, one woman) in front of our flat. no clue why they had their guns with them, most probably a bank robbery took place somewhere.
