Kiel Dec 3, 2020

That sounds nasty. The idea I had of Kiel was totally different. I thought it must be a pleasant coastal location, with the fresh fish every day etc., as you showed us once wrapped up in newspaper, although some coastal locations are industrial ports, and ports sometimes attract certain kinds of people.

Been working on my new album. It's very introspective and personal. Dec 3, 2020

This one is called "Linguee is not the answer - please don't ever mention it again as your source, Karen, we're working seriously here".

How many words must a man translate
before you can call him a man?
The answer, my friend,
is not on Linguee.
The answer is not on Linguee.


It's about my dog that died in a flood some years ago.

... a pleasant location, no doubt about it. It was just a misfortune I had with this flat in this specific street. As in every city, you have to avoid certain districts. This quarter of Kiel does not belong to one of them, not at all. It is the last 400 m of my street, which is a mixture of small apartment blocks and detached houses with parochial people living there, conservated in times somewhere between 1933 and 1968. Rule of thumb I learned: Whenever you are interested in an apartment and when you see, that one of the neighbor apartments next to the apartment you are interested in has all windows equipped with grey and opaque curtains, then you better run!
If you are interested, how life probably has been in the GDR, you should rent my apartment next year. A nightmare of constantly been observed by grey curtained windows, which sometimes talk to you when they are half-opened, with barking orders in the sparkling clean staircase and physical attacks by a stubborn and demented pensioner. Read "Every Man Dies Alone" by Hans Fallada, to get an idea of what kind of people I am surrounded with here in the North of Kiel.

I have dark green and opaque blinds... I need to change that immediately!
All the best with the move, and I'm sorry to hear that from those unpleasant neighbours.

I just don't want to begin to appear an uncivilized neighbour here by having dark blinds too
I know the feeling with bad neighbours. I have been there too, but they can learn the hardest way when they're inconvenient people and don't know how to live in a community.

Neighbours Dec 4, 2020

You should try living next to Tom.

No blinds at all and a penchant for wandering around naked, swinging orange shrivelled bits around day and night...

A romantic poem! Dec 6, 2020

- It's about sincere and true love in the face of trickery and cowardice.

-- The man went to visit his woman. A boy met him at the door, so the man started teaching that boy a lesson on how the boy fails to score secret points with the woman at the man's expense.

--- The boy lied stating his estate is worth 20M+ silver coins, when it's NOT worth even 20M+ lemon pulps.

----------------------------------------

I would rather have 100 Toms as neighbours than a stupid woman walking in very high heels on white boots and making noise all over the place at 6 am in the morning.
A typical example of other different "Nazis".

Hmm. I don't think I'm getting the full picture here, Exy. You might need to post us one of those charcoal drawings of the neighbour.
