Beyond our Control

Unfortunate circumstances beyond our control make us go south again today. Tomorrow we will attend Michi’s grandmother’s funeral. I wish the reason for visiting his family again so soon were a happier one…

I learned today that another one of my wisdom teeth needs to get surgically removed. For the first one two years ago my dentist chose the term "pull the wisdom tooth" and she did it herself. Now it's "surgically remove the tooth" and I have to go to a surgeon specialized in oral and maxillofacial surgery (I looked that up in a dictionary. I hope it means what I think it means). I don't like the feel of this.It looks like that tooth will be a bitch to pull. It didn't grow vertically like it's supposed to, but horizontally and is now pushing my other teeth together. Well in two weeks I'll know more. I have an appointment to get it removed on the 28th. *shudder*

Lunar Eclipse

lunareclipse 9Nov03There was a great total lunar eclipse last night. Unfortunately I only learned about it yesterday so I didn’t have my SLR camera with zoom lens and 2x tele-converter with me here at Michi’s parents’ place. I got to borrow Michi’s dad’s Sony DSC-F505 though. So I had at least a 10x zoom. The other problem was that I didn’t have my tripod with me either. So I propped the camera up on a piece of fence. I managed to get fairly unblurry pictures. There’s nothing I could do about the artifacts though.

We were in a perfect spot to watch the eclipse since the small town we’re currently staying in turns the street lamps off at midnight. Perfect for sky watching. Also there were no clouds. Seeing the milkyway this clearly is a rare sight for me these days. In Berlin I’m happy when I get to see Orion ;)

It is Michi's birthday today. As seems to have become our custom in the past couple of years my present is late again. But I know you'll like it sweetie so hang in there. It'll be just another week or two.

Instead, have some cake:

I can only offer digital cake since our ex-roommate Simon took his cake pan with him when he moved out and we don't have a new one yet. What a fucked up birthday ;)
