I got the book “A Complaint Free World” (The 21-day challenge that will change your life) by Will Bowen on the 11th of July. As soon as the book arrived I got myself a braclet at a phamarcy. So what is it about? Everytime I complain I switch my braclet to the other wrist. And in the last days, I started switching it less and less. I’m looking forward to the first complaint free day. *honk*honk*. It’s an inspiring and highly recommendable book.
One of my favorite stories you find in it is about a guy who put up a sign: “honk if you’re happy” near his house. This was during a diffcult times in his life. And this small idea brought so much positivity, happiness and gratitude to his and other peoples lives. Foreigners visited him, because they wanted to know about the sign, good things just kept happening. *honk*honk*. I just ordered a bunch of complaintfree wristbands, feel free to ask me for one in about 3 weeks from now.
a smile from within,
a laugh never without,
the sommersault of the loving soul,
I leave this perfumed labyrinth of kisses.
How the logs crackle and click
How the oven pounds, licks
How homely warmth feels
How sparks whirl like fen fires
How friendly the cows graze
How majestic the mountains throne
How glistening and entirely the fog devours us
How good it feels to abandon convenience
How the woods smell and rustle
How flowers give their loveliness
to the wondering eye that dwells
How we experience nature anew
and awe for the wonders of creation
How sparkling this chilly wetness tumbles down our throats
How fresh the wind is whizzing around our ears
How calm our fluttering soul becomes
who warms herself on the quiet of the land
As we become quiet and lucid
As we become transformed and anew for this eternal moment
The music was new black polished chrome And came over the summer like liquid night. The DJ’s took pills to stay awake and play for seven days They went to the studio And someone knew him Someone knew the TV showman
He came to our homeroom party and played records And when he left in the hot noon sun and walked to his car We saw the chooks had written F‑U‑C‑K on his windshield He wiped it off with a rag and smiling cooly drove away He’s rich. Got a big car.
My gang will get you Scenes of rape in the arroyo Seduction in cars, abandoned buildings Fights at the food stand The dust the shoes Open shirts and raised collars Bright sculptured hair.
Hey man, you want girls, pills, grass? C’mon… I show you good time. This place has everything. C’mon… I show you.

If been to a really entertaining birthday party last weekend.
Since the hosts are working on their thesis, many acedemics came.
They even asked the guests to submit a paper, which three people did,
the papers even got rated (nerds!).
And then there was this study. Someone came up with the idea, that one should “Do an elephant”.
Actually this is about body language, so valued reader, what would you do to resemble an elephant?
The outcome of the study was, that German speaking people hold their nose and slip their other hand
through the loop, then they wave. We had people who flutterted their hands as ears,
some did a more egyptian style elephant, others just did noises.
Ok, one Swiss guy didn’t get the “nose holding” right, but all others did.
Gosh that was fun.
