Etwas schlichter als das Outfit eben, aber sau bequem. Auch dieses Outfit ist komplett neu und erst seit dem Shopping letztens in meinem Re­per­toire x3
Ich habe übrigens seit Jahren keine kurzen Hosen mehr besessen und jetzt gleich drei :D

Ich hatte erwähnt, dass @pandanouk mich vor ein paar Wochen in ein paar verschiedenen (größtenteils neuen) Outfits geknipst hat, oder? Kommen wir nun endlich zum Foto-Thread :D

Dieses rote Kleid hab ich tatsächlich schon ein paar Jahre und hab es auch hin und wieder schon im Alltag getragen. Tendenziell aber vor allem, wenn ich Leute (hoffentlich positiv) überraschen wollte, die mich nur in Schwarz kannten.

Den Account Neustart feiere ich mit einem neuen Profilbild :3
Das dürfte das erste Mal sein, dass ich ein Foto als Profilbild verwende. Zumindest seit MySpace Zeiten xD

@dokuja It's a good distraction from being sad that the thing's broken

Hey Folks!
Unfortunately not everything going on is resolved yet, so @lara and I won't be able to stream today either. Better luck next week!

Hopefully by then the temperature is more bearable again, too x)

What's the strangest thing you've ever found in a book?


Here's my story...

About 20 years ago or so, I was at a Salvation Army auction one morning. They were selling of tons (literally) of junk they'd had donated to them over the last few years or so; stuff that wasn't easily sold in their actual stores. A lot of it was good stuff, too.

One thing that immediately caught my eye was a pallet (6' high, 4' wide X 4' wide) of nothing but boxed up hardcover books. I looked through some of the books in the top boxes and realized that there were some very old, and often valuable, books in this boxes. I decided I'd bid on it a bit and see where it goes.

The auctioneer kept bringing up lot after lot, but not the pallet of books. I was getting impatient by the time the morning wore on. Finally, when he'd pretty much sold everything that was in the yard back there that morning, he brought up the pallet of books. There was only a small crowd of folks left by then (about 20 or so). He described the contents of the pallet briefly by saying, "Here you go, folks... a bunch of books".

He looked around at the faces in the crowd and said, "I'm opening the bidding at one dollar." I about shit myself. I bid the $1 immediately to get things rolling. Well, after I bid, he looked around and said, "Once, twice, sold that man there for $1." I just laughed... and wondered how the Hell I was going to get this pallet home and what I was going to do with all those books.

When I asked the auctioneer afterwards why he'd let it go so cheaply, he said, "Did you see anyone trampling you to get in a bid?" I said no, I didn't. His reply, with a smirk on his face, was, "Gotta' know your audience in this job."

Well, needless to say, I got the books home and spent a few years going through them and selling some, giving some away, etc. However, that's not the point of this story. The point was finding things in books. So, with that in mind...

There were quite a few books in this collection that had the name of a fellow in them. His name was Charles Lounsbury. He was evidently a well-educated man; many of his books were text books from Cornell University. Anyway, whilst thumbing through one of them one day, a small business card fell out into my lap. It was a dentist's appointment card for Mr. Lounsbury. It also had his address and phone number on it.

Just for grins and giggles, I called the number on the card. An older-sounding man answered on the first ring. I said "Hello" and gave my name. I then asked the fellow if he was Charles Lounsbury. He said he was indeed. I told him about all the books I'd bought and how I had found this dentist appointment card in one of them. He was BLOWN AWAY immediately upon hearing about the books.

He told me that his sister had possession of his personal library at the time of her death, but he had not spoken with her in many years. When she died, it seems that someone cleaning out her house had donated all her possessions, including Charles' books, to the Salvation Army. Mr Lounsbury was very interested in possibly seeing his books again. He was wanting to leave some of them to his grandchildren upon his demise.

I made a date for him to drive from Sarasota, FL up to my home in Tampa and take whichever of his books he wanted back. The following Saturday he showed up. He was absolutely amazed to find all his books in the middle of my living room (huge stack of books, here's a sampling):



Anyway, he picked out 10 of 15 of his prized books and asked if he could take them. I, of course, said yes... for sure. After that we sat and had some coffee and he told me his life story. It was a wonderful afternoon! Charles and I became pretty good friends after that for about 10 or so years, until his death at age 88.

It's amazing, sometimes, the things you find in books. :)

Sorry for calling off a stream on such short notice *again*, but due to multiple reasons, I won't stream today.
Potentially I'm gonna make up for it tomorrow, together with @lara. If everything works out.

apartment for rent, looking for a next tenant in Berlin :boost_ok:​ 

We're moving out and are looking or a next tenant.
It's a 3-room apartment (62 sq.m.), in a relatively old building (1925), with central heating and central warm water, on raised ground floor, in front of a tram stop (trams go at 3-minute intervals, 10 minutes ride time to S-Bahn Ring and 20 minutes to Alexanderplatz), just for 630 euro cold / 820 euro warm.

Is anybody interested? :)

Wenn das System zusammenbricht sobald Menschen nicht mehr krank zur Arbeit gehen, taugt das System nicht.

Wenn das System zusammenbricht sobald Menschen nur noch konsumieren was sie brauchen, taugt das System nicht.

Wenn das System zusammenbricht sobald Menschen entscheiden können wegen unfairer Bedingungen zu kündigen, taugt das System nicht.

Kapitalismus ist das gefährlichste Schneeballsystem, das wir je hatten.

it's awesome and underrated that it rains and storms

earth is special and amazing and watching and smelling and listening and feeling rain is wonderful

Today's KH2 rando was made possible by: @lara who generated a seed without me knowing any of the settings. I only know it'll likely be more random than usual :D

Come and watch in 10 minutes at grufty.tv if you want to watch the confusion unfold!
