My first Christmas tree My fingers are all itchy from carrying home a Christmas tree which defended itself with every prickly needle. Alas, resistance was futile and it will not escape its fate as the grotesque centerpiece of my holiday themed living room (pictures will follow). Christmas music is slowly dissolving my brain. I had been given the choice of seasonal music selection but apparently there is no X-mas trip hop.
My birthday earlier this week had been more pleasant than expected with my co-workers giving me a voucher for IKEA* and my friends presenting me with a new Singstar game** at an evening which ended with lots of Gluewein and excellent sushi at Sasaya. Only downside is that now everyone knows that I am the youngest person working at Company X in Berlin that is not an intern. So much for my efforts of creating an aura of competence by wearing glasses and sensible clothing, undone in a day!
Happy holidays and have a very merry and relaxed Christkwanzukkah!
* Apparently, my colleagues have me written down in their books as a masochist. ** My friends as well.
