Having a child forces you to listen to children songs at the kindergarten or you even start to sing them if you are alone at home or more embarrassing if you are shopping and people start starring at you. It becomes even more odd if you are alone outside and no child is around you. Anyway, I am searching some of my favorite songs from my childhood and so far I haven’t found much, except one, which really is nice, at least its melody and content (the embedded version is of course a worsen high-tech version):
Everyone, who spend his childhood in Germany between 1980-1990 must have grown up with the following songs or TV-series:

Letter to the renter of our student apartment:
Sorry to bother you with this small issue, but as a student I don’t have time to get angry when things are not in a way as promised by you. The clocks have changed, but I guess at several of your buildings the laundry time has been not updated, so the washing machines are switched off at 8 pm instead of 9 pm, meaning I have to wait until 7 am to wash again, but than I don’t have a time booked and even if I had I am a student and have to be at school around 6-7, so I am screwed. I have dirty and wet cloth and have to think about them instead of being able to concentrate on my studies. Sorry for letting my anger out on you, but I hope you will try harder to prevent such things to occur in the future. Thanks.
On the same hand they expect students to keep deadline and can’t give the service they are claiming to offer on their webpage. “Time is money, and I don’t have money.” is a saying from my university time. And I hate it if time is not kept as mentioned earlier. Of course we are human and do mistakes, but I haven’t seen many to recognise that and at least apologise. At least in this point Swedish university housings are similar to German ones.

Apologies for not writing so much these days. But it seems I will have some more busy days. 29 days of fasting are over, I managed to get invited ones and invite ones during these days. Which is not as bad as it sounds, because last year it was around 2-3 times, so I haven’t worsen the situation as much as it might appear. Didn’t gain on weight as some might assume; kept my weight which I had during the last days of Italy. So today is Eid and I have to hurry to not miss the prayer.

Haven’t blogged since a long time. Didn’t really find the time for it. Quite busy right now be it at work or at home. Son is improving his knowledge regarding gravity by smashing his head on the floor from different heights and angles of attack. He developed a quite fast crawling speed and has a quite funny laugh since few days. The electrical heater on the other hand has become his enemy, although he does not want to let off once his nerves have transmitted the pain to his brain. He just stays attached to it and starts crying after few seconds.
Today I got a pound of parmesan from Italy. So there was no real dinner, just cheese, some pancakes and ice cream. Still angry about Sixt, the Russians and myself.
