Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Today I got word from my employer. I will work 16 hours per week in two full days. I'm happy with that. 16 hrs equals a 40% job. The money is not much less than in a half-time job, but I have three free days (additionally to the weekend). Working only two out of seven days is a luxury for sure. :D

And guess what? I haven't worked a single day yet, but am already planning on how to spend the money!  ;D :laugh:

Nah, I would never spend money I don't have yet. So planning was the wrong word choice. I'm rather weighing different options, setting priorities and dreaming. I won't earn too much (you never do in social work ::)), but a 100% of it will be additional money. That's the nice thing about it. :)

Happy Nikolaus-Day!




Dec. 6th is Nikolaus in Germany and some other European countries. The children put their boots in front of the door on the evening before, and Nikolaus puts a little surprise in their boots over night. Traditionally it's some tangerines, nuts and sweets, plus a small present.
St. Nikolaus is a historical figure (Bishop of Myra) and the predecessor of your Santa Claus. And I guess your tradition of hanging Christmas stockings (which we don't do) comes from our tradition to put boots outside since they do look more like boots than like stockings.
