A nice quote from a book about euthanasia



Walter: You see, my boy, in hospitals, on the many benches, sit estranged... fathers, sons, mothers, husbands...incapable of allowing each other to die. "Let him see me once more. Let him open his eyes once more." This they say to their doctors. In that "once more", love will be shown, finally exchanged.

Some new German words learned...



"nanu" is an undefinable German sigh or explanation; "opa" is German for grandfather.

It's Frustrating!



Imagine yourself to be in my shoes. It’s 5am. 2 hours ago you had just fallen asleep. Meaning: You’ve only had 2 hours of sleep so far. You woke up after a fucked up nightmare. You know it was a fucked up nightmare and that is why you’ve woken up. The fucked up thing is that you cannot remember what the fuck the nightmare was all about.

You tried your darn best to go back to sleep, but sleep just eluded you. You turned and twisted on the bed hoping to gain back that blissful position that puts you back to Lala Land. Nothing works.

There is a rumble to your stomach. You got up, went to the kitchen and the only thing available was French toast from the day before. You’re hungry, and lacks of sleep. You’re angry.

The next thing you know: You were throwing your laptop into your bag (not literally throw; more of putting it gently into the bag), followed by your keys, handphone and wallet. You walked 1km to the nearest shopping center hoping that the Mc Donald’s would be open. It wasn’t open. You took the train, wearing white t-shirt, shorts and no undies one station northward. You alighted and went straight to the 24hour Mc Donald, typing furiously on your laptop while having hotcakes ( which are basically pancakes) and coffee.

You are still fuming mad, but you tell yourself: Nothing is gonna fuck up my day today!
