    review:
    well, the rest of the week replacing one of my colleagues was alright - earned some money, no major lapses on my account; just good
    madden nfl 09 arrived at my home, and i gave it a good play; the controls are really awkward if you haven't played the recent versions (like i did), but you get a hold of it quickly and it's still a lot of fun (:
    the weekend with ina was really nice; we were able to learn really well (ina's has a math test today, which turned out alright accodring to her), had some fun playing xbox 360 and kissed, hugged and loved each other a lot

    review:
    man...having a caring girlfriend really upgrades your birthdays: cause for the first time i got some genuine heartfelt gifts - a sweet, sweet chocolate cake, an awesomecore birthday card (w/ two cool dogs on it), and a very cute mug...thank you darling! (:
    other than that, not much going on - except one of the teachers working at my private lessons-station is ill for the whole week and i'm filling in...i was told to have 2 students on monday and today; 'twas seven and four :/ at least i'm making 52€ this week (hey, that's a lot fo money to me)

    #1 Underoath (11): just checking their album out...pretty good
    #2 Sigur Rós (8): my hard drive betrayed me, so i listened to last.fm-radio most of the time, which prohibits getting a nice weekly count (i know i totally contradicted myself right here, go ahead...)
    #2 Hammock (8): tie again xD

    review:
    wow, this weekend was just sweet for some craving college football junkie like myself - five days of college football in a row, quick recap
    thursday: nc state got clobbered by south carolina, despite ridiculous play by the gamecocks' qb, their new one is called smelley (no pun intended, lawl)
    friday: rice vs smu; nice offensive affair, nicer smu uniforms (just classic...)
    saturday: bonanza setting in; and the usual upsets you see in week one - va tech got embarassed by east carolina; pitt fell to this year's mac chapion (quote me on that) bowling green which shouldn't happen at home; michigan. …

    review:
    gnar...car failed that hideous test again :/ really getting sick of the shit
    the ravens lost another preseason game, they're just dismal (on offense, granted; but on defense, wtf?)
    the weekend was fine; it felt good having ina around and it felt even better having a serious conversation to clear some stuff out of the way
    thrice were awesome last week in münster; a really fine set
    i've got some personal and professional hurdles in front of me, which are bothering me...
    not in a typing mood


    preview:
    college football starts this weekend - oh, and i turn 20 next tuesday; maybe a super-special-birthday-edition coming up...don't know

    #1 Caspian (20): and once again, listening to last.fm-radio paid off
    #2 Sigur Rós (15): that's what you get for playing a show out of my schedule!!!
    #3 Amiina (11): nice to hear them again - they're so good, seriously...

    review:
    erm, first things first - so i've got to show my car to the local authorities cause the safety badge shit expires this months...'twas FAILLLLLLLL!!!!!!!111
    but the weekend took care of that - it was filled with culinary highights (selfmade tortillas, döner takeaway, KFC!) and magnificent displays of art (deine HAAAAAAAAND wird zur FAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUST!)
    and boy, were the olympics a blast the previous week - 4 gold medals for germany in one day! rowing, equestrianism and fencing...serious business, not like this pussy 9.69 100m dash by usain bolt (ON THE JUICE!!!!, quote me on that)

    #3 Pg.99 (9): just 2 plays until 1k xD

    review:
    alright...rewind - there's no major and minor for me, cause at long last, political science will be offered as a single subject only; i filled out the immatriculation form yesterday so i'm good to go...
    ...if it wasn't for my student support - i'm still not 100% sure if i'll get money and neither was this office twit who i spoke with this morning...let's see how this fares out; i'm pretty optimistic though
    now back to the lighter things...the last week with ina was really fine: we made sushi once again, spent a nice day at the north sea coast (even though we got toasted...no sunscreen, very smart) and i was a first hand witness of a fight between ina and her mother...boy they really go at it! ,-)

    review:
    nice career news! bielefeld university has accapted me - both in my major (political science) and in my minor (history); i really feel relieved now...but not entirely (still worry about my student support, but i guess that should be alright
    the weekend at ina's was wonderful as always and it's still going on! i am here until sunday and that suits me just fine
    and i still notice i'm on the right track, cause i am so excited that nfl preseason has started - and just when my birthday comes around the real deal will start again; let's see how my ravens are going to do...

    #1 Hammock (36): just found them while i was tuned in to last.fm radio (thanks, winamp...) - apparently they won me over pretty quickly
    #2 Emarosa (8): looks like there wasn't much space for other artists xD
    #3 Sigur Rós (5): and the effect continues

    review:
    alright, first things first - it was just wonderful to have the whole house only with my girl during the weekend...we just had an awesome time watching stupid television, ina making her first attempts at moving an automobile (and she did well for a first try (: ), cooking some delicious shit (tortillas+guacamole+mousse au chocolat=man, does my stomach feel bad...)
    and together we also bravely fought the heat over here - not only is it pretty warm it's also just so fucking pressing humid all the time; last time i felt such weather was on my vacation to florida some years back; all fans in the house were useless. …

    #2 Sigur Rós (12): switch at the top, xD
    #3 Balmorhea (10): totally forgot how good they are

    review:
    the week was quite dull, just like i predicted - and that all-star game really killed me...the coverage started 1.30 am and the first pitch was not thrown prior to 2.45, wtf?!? so much honoring and crap...get a hold of yourself!
    at least pgr 4 cheered me up; pretty funny game - but those track in macau are just hilarious! xDDD
    in other high-tech-news; i got me a new digital sattelite receiver - now i'm finally being able to watch sports, theater and other important things (gaypr0n, stfu noobz lololololol) again
    but the best message of the week came in this morning when my mother walked up to my room…

    review:
    sushi is fun! that's what we found out over at ina's this weekend; we made (actually ina did all the major work) some nice norimaki rolls, and we put wasabi-pranks on two of her siblings; excellent...
    prior to that i took care of my bed fiasco; it was about time for a new slat rust (that's what babelfish told me...) because the old one was wrecked! now it's a comfy, sleepy paradise (:
    but yesterday sucked: i almost damaged a car and caused a traffic accident and i walked away as fast as possible ("COWARD!")...i did so by throwing a tennis ball, which on thrid thought makes this whole thing way cool...
