You know what? After taking hours to just get up and eat breakfast, shop around a little and walk around, I finally made it to university to get some work done and what now?? I FORGOT THE USB-STICK AT HOME!!! ARRRRRRGH! How can I be so stupid??? I took all that pain just to make it to university and now I'm sitting here in front of a computer and can't do any work because I haven't brought that silly stick! Which also has my trivia facts, which is why this post has no proper title.

And because I have nothing to do, I'm writing this entry which will be totally random and silly and pointless.

On the situation in Germany right now:
You can't walk any five metres without being caught in some black-red-gold flag that waves in your face. The mall and the shops and the houses look like Christmas, but with black-red-gold instead of Christmas colours. And listening to people talking (on the radio, in the bus, on the street, in the computer room) you get the feeling that THIS WHOLE COUNTRY has lost its grip to reality.
So yesterday these young German men played against Australia... what could I say to them? "Thank you for the great party!" maybe? I do feel a little sorry for the Australians. Of course I felt even more sorry for my beloved Greeks being unable to move any slower than the average garden slug. I still love Seitaridis. I wonder if that is reason enough to watch another of their games.
What was I saying about yesterday's game? Oh yes, so, when you're sitting in front of a big cinema screen, surrounded by raving Germans - you won't be able to sit and calmly watch like a true Austrian. Instead you will jump up like those people, you will scream at the top of your lungs, wave your hands (for you still refuse to carry a German flag) and jump up and down like a true idiot.
This (German?) passion for football is irresistible, if you have an ounce of either passion or sympathy in your blood, you have to go along with it. Maybe I'm swept along so easily because Austria is, by nature, a football country too. It's just that this generation has barely any success to celebrate. Right now I don't care about nationality anymore as long as people celebrate passionately - Isn't football all about passion? I see no other reason for it. And Germany is a country that needs passion so badly! Well, Austria probably needs it even more but currently I see no way for the nation to find it via football. What we need most is passion and the laughter that comes from a relieved spirit. I guess it's okay if the country loses its grip on reality for some weeks. Reality will return soon enough, soon we will have enough to worry about again, wondering when the world is going to end.
Now, you young German team - please give me many more great parties in the near future! Oh, and I'm glad people aren't too crazy about these stupid Vuvuzela things here! I don't care if they are "a part of African culture" - these things have seen the devil, I swear!


Today I ran into people from Ärzte ohne Grenzen (Médecins Sans Frontières) and that made me remember that I have wanted to donate to them for ages.

Ever since Emma appeared in KHR, I found a new love for Tsuna. Now I love Tsuna and Emma. I don't even know why, they are so not my type. Maybe I'm just so glad that Byakuran isn't there anymore. Where will I watch football on Friday? Yesterday I got two free drinks for singing (every choir memeber got free drinks). Where can I go on Friday for free drinks?

I bought a CD recording of "Carmina Burana" today. I should just go home, lie on my bed and listen to that instead of sitting here and pissing myself off.

Just right now I was looking to my left and I was thinking: "Hm, that woman there is wearing almost the same clothes as mine." When looking again I noticed that it was my own reflection.

Das hier hab ich von amcw177 und es rettet mir sogar diesen Tag, auch wenn es immer ein bisschen peinlich ist, wenn man im PC-Raum an der Uni laut zu lachen anfängt und keiner weiß wieso, aber irgendwie ahnt jeder, es hat was mit Fußball zu tun. Warum schreib ich eignlcith auf Deutsch, obwohl ich es offensichtlich nicht kann (siehe: eignlcith)?

Ach, was tu ich bloß? Ich muss heut noch auf dieses Bewerberkreistreffen, huh, schon so spät?? Ich habe es geschafft, diesen ganzen Tag zu verplempern, ich hab wirklich gar nichts gemacht, doch, eine CD gekauft und ein Hansaplast, aber sonst nichts NICHTS. Das ist so frustrierend. Wann ist dieser blöde Tag endlich vorbei? Wenigstens regnet es jetzt nicht mehr. Irgendsoeine Kuh hat jetzt das Fenster zugemacht und ich kann mein Spiegelbild nimmer sehn.

Some of the German football players look like they are no older than 15. Not a single day older... honestly... I should leave this computer room now, people are giving me weird looks.

PS: Jetzt hat einer das Fenster wieder aufgemacht und ich kann mich wieder recht blöd anschaun, übrigens ist am Mittwoch Actus, aber dieses Mal weiß ich sogar schon was ich anziehe.

About the USB stick: that sucks. Man, I've been there, and God, does that fricking suck.

Your commentary gave me many Hetalia LOLs, by the way. It's kind of nice to imagine Ludwig all passionate about the matches. (And I so understand what you mean about the flags! Everything over here is covered in light-blue and white. Granted my reaction is to grumble and go "be patriotic outside the World Cup, dammit", but well, I'll take what I can get).

I hope you'll feel better soon. Being pissed off is no fun.

We have Argentinian flags too! :D Actually, there are many different flags (apart from the German one), well, people have different favourites. My secret favourite is Greece (I don't have a Greek flag though... I only have an Austrian one and that's not even very big.)
I wonder where Germany hides the flags after the WM... because I swear that once the German team is out of the matches, all these flags will magically disappear all of a sudden. Patriotism outside of the WM still seems to be some kind of crime.

Oh that sucks -_- that you forgot your USB... I know how it feels when you forget something important, it happen most of the time to me...

By the way, today I didn't forget the USB, yahoo!!

Seriously, football has a really bad effect on you, this entry hardly makes any sense XD (not that I mind XD)

And while Germany, Japan and basically every fav of mine wins, France is stuck with a shameful tie Oh Francis, too tired after sex? ^^

It rains over there and the only Kuh around is not one but a big bear called little brother, which is, indeed, more dangerous than a Kuh.
And since I'm in my own room I do whatever I want with the fenster.
(ok so now because of you I mix german in my english o_O)

Hmmm, I think it makes no sense because I was furious when I found out I had forgotten my USB-stick. So I furiously wrote random things instead of thinking. Or maybe I'm not so good at serious thinking in general. Anyway, it can't have anything to do with football... Hey, so France played 1:1 against Uruguay and Italy played 1:1 against Paraguay... doesn't that sound fishy? Maybe Uruguay and Paraguay are really the same team and they play 1:1 against anyone!

Somehow it's very sweet when you mix German with English! And I'm happy because I can understand. Watch out for the bear, though!

Sometimes writing things down helps to think ^^

Or maybe France and Italy made an agreement so that they'll keep doing the same things so they could have a chance to play against each other?
Evil plot indeed. Zidane come back!

I'll watch out for the bear, I'm not the kind to put myself in unnecessarily dangerous situations.
And what if I start to mix french and english?
glareola
Jun. 15th, 2010 04:45 pm (UTC)
I know very few words of French. Maybe I would understand some of it? Or maybe not. OTL

France and Italy love each other that much? I just heard on the radio that the English complain because the balls were produced in Bavaria...

Jun. 15th, 2010 06:14 pm (UTC)
Probably not XD Except for the ones similar to their german and english counterparts.

No, it's more that we still didn't manage to accept our loss last time and so we'd really like to kick their ass once and for all. (sorry Ita-chan ^^)
I think that winning against the English would be at least as awesome as winning against Brazil.
Still the Engish would find a way to complain about anything anyway ...

Jun. 16th, 2010 07:46 am (UTC)
I think you have a chance. Italy is not doing too well... but then again, whenever Italy seems to suck, they win in the end. So let's see what happens!
I think winning against the English is much easier than winning against Brazil. The golden times of the English team are over. At least they are still the same when it comes to complaining.

Yeah we're the same, latin country FTW ^^ (well strictly speaking only half latin)
Still I can't help but whenever I see a match in which Italy plays I totally picture Ita-chan trying to catch the ball and screaming "paaaastaaa".

I think so too, but we hate the English more than we hate Brazil and we already legendary kicked their ass off so that wouldn't be fun anymore ^^

There's a pub down the road from me who have painted the entire front wall with a big St. George's cross. It's not just your country gone mad!

I saw Carmina Burana live years ago in a 400 year old church. It was so loud in places I feared for the rattling stained glass windows... Quite an overwhelming experience.
glareola
Jun. 15th, 2010 06:47 am (UTC)
That pub must look so awesome! And the St. George's cross can stay there forever and ever! But here in Germany some people painted their car black-red-gold and I wonder what they will do after the WM... Scrap the car?

I remember as a little girl I received "Carmina Burana for children" on a cassette from a nun. I can't find the cassette anymore, though... ;_;

I also think that the best thing about football is the effect it has on people.
Well, I haven't met any football hooligans here yet, it's very peaceful and everyone is happily celebrating... maybe they are somewhere else? In Berlin? But then again, who could those hooligans attack if everyone cheers for the same team anyway? Besides, in Germany people seem to think that the British are the hooligans.

Irgendsoeine Kuh is "some cow". It's not exactly nice but it's not very mean either. My mother calls me "stupid hen" when I'm silly or stupid, or she says "dammische Urschl" - I don't know how to translate that, but it's meaner than "cow".

Nothing makes me grumpier than the World Cup... |;' Maybe I'm not fit after all ;|

I used to like it, but it's been around a decade that I loathe it.

Ah, poor Mila!!
Why does the WM make you grumpy? Maybe it's not such a happy event in Brazil? Are people not behaving well? What happened 10 years ago to make you loathe it?

Well, you could try to accept it at least for Germany's sake - it's the only time the Germans are really happy and full of passion! The best thing about football is watching the Germans forget their usual plain self and show their best. So make sure that when you come to Germany, it's during the time of a successful WM and you'll find the best and friendliest Germany of any time. Even I have to like it. I hope, one day, Austria gets to participate successfully in a WM again! ♥

Noo, they love it, they are happy, they paint everything with yellow and green, and it's the only time they are actually nationalists.

And yet I hate it, I hate all this World Cup talk, I hate the painting, and the whole fake nationalism, I hate how football drives the life of so many people, and how it affects politics and everything else. I hate how they spend money in this stupidity rather than in more important things like infrastructure. And I hate the fact that there will be games in my city in 2014 and I'll be in the middle of this hell.

/rant.
Sorry :/

Btw. I want either Germany or Italia to win.
Actually I want Germany to win this and the next one so the Brazilians will freak out SO HARD. I will be laughing of their despair in my den of evil.
And if Italia wins this and the next one...It'll be priceless.

Ah, I see. So you don't like the WM because you feel it's unhealthy for your country? Well, it's the opposite for Germany, the WM actually seems to be good for the sanity of the people here. I wish Austria could participate! We are worrying about "important things" (like infrastructure, economy, environment, health care, etc.) for 365 days each year so I think we deserve a little freedom from our sorrows for the short time of the games. Once the games are over, we return to our usual selves: Germany will be serious and plain again, Austria will be stubborn and irritated again, and life will go on. The WM is just a short holiday.
But I can very well understand that you don't feel good about this in your country, because the situation is so different.

For Brazil it's always holiday |:" and I'm a grumpy and pessimist person to the core. So I don't fit here. AT ALL. And the world cup is just another excuse for them to do nothing important... Just brag about their football history. Oh for -- ugh. Orz ok. I'll stop here..

Everything you just wrote about the football thing - signed. :)

I think the country is really going on a much-needed trip away from reality. Even if it may be just be a short-lived drug-like state, it's worth it. Because the alternative is worrying about the state of politics, and personally I am so very tired of that. Just gimme my football party and the giddiness.

And also, don't be such a spoilsport, Austria. After all, apparently an Austrian girl is now "Germany's Next Topmodel". So you can cheer for our boys, no problem. ;-)
We're bros anyway like it or not :P.

Reicht es nicht, wenn ich zugebe, dass wir Cousins sind? Ich werde auch den Grad nicht näher definieren. :D

Drug-like state? That's a good description of Germany's current condition.

That girl who's the so-called "Germany's Next Topmodel" is actually from Upper-Austria too; and the owner of the cafe where she was a Stammgast (huhuhu) said that she never ever ate ice-cream or cake or actually anything - WTF I don't want to be a model!!! Ich wäre lieber Fußballweltmeister, da darf man wenigstens was essen! Anyway, if you want, we can swap - you get the model and we take your footballers.

Ich seh' das leider ganz genauso mit den Prioritäten - lieber essen statt modeln. Also kann ich mich auf den Deal leider nicht einlassen... :P

i hate it when things like that happen. it usually takes me forever to get up & go out, especially when i don't have to, then to have it end up that your outing was rendered relatively pointless? I HATE IT. ;n;

i think it's kinda cool to see everyone get so excited about things like this, even though i never seem to get excited myself in the least. (also i know nothing about sports so maybe that has something to do with it?)

'Just right now I was looking to my left and I was thinking: "Hm, that woman there is wearing almost the same clothes as mine." When looking again I noticed that it was my own reflection.'
that made me smile for some reason. |D

Haha, I don't know much about sports either. I'm not even interested in sports... except for football. And I've never even played it myself except once, but that was street football. OTL I think it's fascinating.

I completely agree with you about football. It's all about passion! My country has also completely lost any grip of the reality and being honest, I don't mind. People's always in need of reasons to celebrate, and it's nice to see for a change people excited, laughing, screaming, and actually being happy. And when you bring the football passion in your blood, who cares about nationality? Any match can become an exciting instance xD

...my mom was suggesting that once all of those tourists get back to their respective countries, they'll carry those damned Vuvuzuelas with them...

Oh, I agree so much with you about football!

I just heard on the radio that Vuvuzelas are now sold out in Germany. :D Anyway, I don't hear them much here (at least not in this town (=downtown Rgbg)). But their sound is so annoying on TV! It's like there's a huge swarm of wasps somehwere off-screen and it's so monotonous - where are the creative fan choirs and drum choreographies? ;_;

mi reloj son el sol y las olas
Una vez más el paisaje fugitivo,
el lago, los valles,
los árboles que corren como ríos.
Llega una nube
y ciega la mirada;
luego descubre
un mar, un fuego.

Cuando duermes
se recoge la vela de tu tiempo,
se borra el libro
por la magia de la sombra
y pasa a tus sueños la escritura.
A mis ojos,
la desaparición de tu día,
y mi quedar en mi día y en mi noche.

La belleza se desliza en su órbita.
En la isla que se aleja
tensas el arco.
La flecha sigue su línea.
Yo la mía.
