Warm

The plumber was here, and the heating is again running. It is warm in my apartment, warm I tell you, WARM, ha ha ha hahahahahaha HAAAAA!!

Ahem. Sorry.

I am quite pleased.

In other news I called the Canadian Consulate here in Stuttgart to find out what time they close, so that I could submit my passport renewal application by hand rather than entrusting irreplaceable original documents to the post. Of course they're not open today, I was prepared for that, it is Friday after all. What surprised me was to discover that they are only open for twelve hours a week! two mornings and an afternoon. Bah. "That ain't workin', that's the way you do it" as Herr Knopfler famously said.

Of course I know that the consular staff work terribly hard for many long hours during the rest of the week. Oh yes, of course they do.

So glad to hear about the heating.

I always thought it was just Vienna that had stores/businesses and consulates/embassies that had weird and the very minimum number of open hours per week. Maybe it's a whole European continent thing.

Heat is good. Yes, very good.

12 hours a week? That sounds like a cushy job.

Oh, spam, it's so much fun. Not.

I am glad you are warm. Getting caught up on blogs today. I cannot wait to have shiny pretty 6 mega something or another at home.
