Seriously, I had forgotten how much fun work can actually be. I like my job, I like the people, I like being in Hamburg. I pretty much like it all.
Sparky likes it because I’m focusing on changing an organization and not him. He like how I can complain about the psychological aspects of certain things and its not about him. He likes that I work with people all day and any frustration I have isn’t caused by him.
And he likes how he has proven that flying takes just as much, if not more time than taking the train. Fuck.
I hate the train and I like to fly. Flying is actually cheaper in terms of euros if we don’t look at global warming issues or dying polar bears. I hate thinking about dying polar bears. They are the leading cause of my efforts in recycling and cutting down on gas and all that other green stuff. Sparky just has to mention that one more needless trip to Ikea and a baby polar bear is orphaned and its over.
We are getting a new car soon. Either a Hybrid or a diesel. We’re still in the research phase but so far, its looking like the BMW 1 series. it seems to have a lot of bang for the buck. I was looking at an SUV hybrid, but as we don’t have kids, there is absolutely no reason for it, except that I like to sit high above people. It helps me feel more in control and superior. Sparky says I need to control things like I need another cat and that I already have a superiority complex over the German people, no need to add to my arsenal of animosity on the road.
Humph. Yeah, well, it’s his car, so what do I care. And it helps save the polar bears.
Anyway, I’m home, I’m tired and I’m pretty happy with how the week went. I travel solo next week, so that should be interesting. I have a lunch appointment with a fellow expat on Wednesday. If anyone else in the area, let me know and come join the fun.
