Freaking freak….puh….!

So, I put my beautiful Pea Coat from Мишка into the tailors the other week so they could stitch a button on that was slowly falling off. Well, to avoid losing the button, since the buttons are so cool (and obviously impossible to replace), I had cut it off. Anyway, I picked the jacket up over the weekend and today was the first day I wanted to wear it and what is the first thing I try to do – obviously do the first button up (which is on the inside) – but hang on, where is that button!? What, I can’t find it. Let me take my jacket off and have a look.

Yes, no fucking button there anymore.

The dickhead has most probably lost the fucking button I so carefully tried to save and instead of informing me that he fucked up, took me to be a fool and removed the inside button (maybe he is the real fool and thought there was no use for it) and replaced it to the outside. So great, I now have a jacket that hangs on one side because it is too heavy to keep the side up without that inside button, and now I have to waste my precious fucking time going back to the tailors to explain in my crap German that he is a fuckwit – and just where the fuck is my button – and why am I missing a button after putting the jacket in to have a button replaced!?

Seriously, does everyone treat everyone like a fool in this country. Can no one admit when they are wrong? Is it just here or does that happen everywhere and am I just conveniently forgetting that?

Either way, I am pissed. My jacket has come back worse than it went in.


Is the whole world out to get me or is it only in my mind…..

Speechless (not what you think)

Well, time is moving right along….I mean, geez louise, I really feel like I just posted the other week……and don’t say it’s because of the hit on the head, it’s just been so freaking busy. I mean, on top of my ‘normal’ work in the last month or so I have organized my work’s 10 year anniversary party, interviewed countless applicants for a job I had posted, employed the successful candidate (who I am now training) all whilst still trying to keep in contact with friends and family alongside my other weekly activities such as climbing.

I’m sure things used to be easier.

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Uma Restaurant and it went really well. Actually, this was the easiest event I’ve ever had to organize, even considering the time-pressure I was under (only had four weeks to do everything), which was mainly due to the professionalism of the staff. I can’t fault them. E-mail communication was excellent, the location is beautiful and the food was awesome. A very nice job indeed. The whole day in fact was what I would consider a success (it was an entire day of events ending with dinner at Uma). After Uma, all that were game continued the night on at the Newton Bar – so named after the photographer.

Well, it was valentines day yesterday and since Ina and I are doing our best to get back on track with each other we decided to go to Tipi am Kanzleramt to see a show called Speechless to celebrate it together. It is a really clever pantomime type show that blends modern technology and pantomime into something you’ve probably never really seen before. Some parts of the show were truly great and I think I can be safe in saying that both Ina and I enjoyed it a lot. Take a look below:

So now I have my snowboarding trip to look forward to along with maybe another couple of things…..although I will definitely keep you informed if anything super cool happens…..that is if I have the time/energy/inspiration to do so 😉

p.s. Bought new snowboarding boots today: Forum – The Booter Not super hot on the color….well, I mean, it’s black with some ruby red on it….black is ok but why oh why the ruby red. But they are just so damn comfortable in comparison with other boots I’ve tried and all our snow gear is on sale at the moment, and I needed new boots….so hey….what the hell. Comfort is waaaaaayyy more important than colors I guess. But seriously, ruby red?

p.p.s. Got an iPhone 4S now that I somehow seem determined to destroy…..just like all my other poor phones. Dropping it has become a daily occurrence. I was taking a photo with it just last night and dropped it into the snow – the snow you think, that was lucky……you’d think so wouldn’t you? Well, when I got home and was finally in proper light, I noticed that somehow one of the ‘oh so fantastic’ stainless steel sides got pretty trashed from the drop…….snow huh!? Whodda thunk it? It survived better from the drop in the bathroom onto the tiled floor…..oh well, ho hum. Only a phone. And no, I will not put it into one of those stupid cases or put a bumper on it. Stuff just gets beat up from use. I realized that very young as a kid skateboarder – the first grind always hurts inside – you pay for beautiful artwork on the bottom of your deck only to eventually grind it all off.
