I was sick last week (like almost everyone else I know) and missed the biggest part of the biggest street party in the world- the Cologne Carnival. There is a lot of drinking and bad music involved. Beforehand I had spent some time inventing costumes.

I like the Youtube video joke, the Bürohengst joke unfortunately can´t really be translated. It would be probably only interesting if you´re learning German and you ´re looking for a strange word your teacher hasn´t heard of either (you could tell him if wants to know what it is that it is a strange creature living in mountainous regions of western Germany, half horse half writing desk). I like it…
