Site Blog...from time to time, some thoughts need to get out...
...and yet I did.
Ok guys... long time no update, just because I was moving and the new apartment needed a lot of refurbishing in the last months. And don't think I am thru yet already. There is still a lot to do and I am slowly running out of money... bah...
So I am finally feeling like home here at my new address, which is actually my old address, because I lived here for nearly all my life except the last decade. And funny enough a lot of people still remembered this old address, which was mentioned in many of my old contact notes and demos. And to give you a glimpse idea of the view which I get from my new working place, I inserted this little photo.
Besides I had to get over the end of season 2 from my most beloved TV show called "Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles".
Yes, "Born to Run" just hit me in my face with a strong blow in the middle of April, leaving me in total lethargy, thinking about it for days. Keeping in mind that it could be the last episode at all, shed a certain light on the happenings in this (already legendary) season finale, which didn't make me feel much comfortable! And my nightmares came true. Last monday the worst case happened, when Fox dropped T:SCC out of their future schedule... curse on them... I already miss Cameron. Now how do I get over this? We'll see... ;-)
So bye for now...
