funny (Sara)

May is finally showing its sunny side and a lot of guys from my school walk around in shorts. My friend looked at all of the hairy man-legs and made a comment, that really cracked me up:

Oh look, they are wearing nature socks!

Across the Street (Lia)

Across the street is an beautifully restored building from the late 19th century. In it, is housed a law practice. There is one notary and seven “workers” or employees that do various paperwork for the notary. The seven employees (all female) come into the office between 7:00 and 7:30 am every morning. There is a flurry of activity from one office to another, back and forth to the coffee maker, to the photocopying machine, exchanging one piece of paper for another, and distributing files to their proper desk.

And then, just before 8:30, a calm descends upon the office. Each of the women quietly sits in front of their computer. I can almost smell the freshly brewed coffee steaming from the cups on their desks. The world is right. The boss arrives. The day begins.

Oh Noooo!! (Sara)

Yesterday afternoon after our Big Band practice ( in case you don’t remember, I play the alto saxophone ) we wanted to go to my place and on our way to my house we saw a trombone standing all alone at one corner leaning against a wall. We thought about taking it with us, because it’s not good to let a trombone standing alone in the street, but then we thought, that it could belong to someone we might not know, and so we decided not to take it with us.

At nine thirty in the evening our lead trombonist called me and asked me in a very (very) desperate voice if I had seen his trombone. Oh Nooo!  I was so angry with myself, that I did’t even look into the case. I really wished that I could turn back time at that moment. I talked to him a little while, trying to make suggestions how he could find it. He thanked me, we said goodbye and I went to bed.

Next morning in music class:

Lead trombonist enters the room. Everybody looks at him. He had a big smile on his face!! Yaay!

He told us that he had gone up and down the street again, and it turns out that someone had dropped the trombone off  at the turkish grocerie store around the corner. I love Lübeck!

Performance Art Lecture (Lia)

Last evening I had the opportunity to attend a university lecture on performance art. Part of the lecture was the participation of the attendees in a mini performance art piece.

The lecturer put her head to each of the participants’ hearts, one after the other, and listened to their heartbeat. She gave each of us a heart rhythm to beat into the arms of our chairs. Eventually, each of us was beating our heart rhythm and she stood at the front of the room directing us to beat softer or louder. It was certainly a lecture I will remember for a long time.
