sendings pictures. Here you go:
However, the same humor is necessary for the invention of Viking's Lite beer. Lite = not low alcohol but aiming for 0 calories. The one left is a standard Viking (Pilsener). You want to try them in a pub over here. Okeedokee, let me see 10 bucks. Yes, that's true!
Somehow the weekend is over now and my personal Oktoberfest didn't happen. Lack of participants, I daresay. I tried the 'Lite' beer and it was okay.
Less beer, more knitting? Should have been so! But I was occupied otherwise (Hasn't university just started? Why am I to hand in papers already!?)

Nevertheless, I am not at all happy with the k2p2 cuff. and I wouldn't mention it at all if it wouldn't be the suggested one in the intructions AND look great in the picture. It's all saggy in my sock.

*It's by law forbidden to display tobacco for sale in shops, even in ...ahem... tobacco shops. The rule is also that shop owners or assistants are in no way to support your purchase of cigarettes. As a result you can sometimes overhear very funny dialogues:
- Malboro lights please.
- Sorry, we don't have them.
- Hm.. then Luckies.
- Sorry, they're out as well.
- Okay, so what do you have?
- Sorry, I mustn't tell you.
