Want to show you a book of my childhood. "Das Apfelsinenmaennchen"
means translated something like "The little orange man". It's from 1970, illustrated by Lilo Fromm, a wonderful German children's book illustrator. The imaginative and loveable story is from Kaspar Rauxel. You can see, that us three siblings did love the book a lot.
Oskar and me were at the public dress rehearsal of "The Jungle Book" here at the theatre in Pforzheim yesterday. Will be this year's Christ- mas production for the kids. It was the first time my son was at the "big" theatre (not at the puppet theatre) and it was quite overwhelming for him. The play was so lively and entertaining and there were many hilarious details. So had the vultures the hairstyle of the Leningrad Cowboys, and Kaa, the python with hypnotic powers, was shortsighted and did wear huge green glasses. Besides he had a little red handbag with his cutlery in it.

ok, here we go:
- I like to listen to radio plays and audio books while working (and while not :)
- When I was about 10 years old, I made my own little atlas with completely thought up continents, countries and oceans and gave them invented names.
- I love to go out for food. Before we had children, we did this more often. Besides it's a pricey hobby of course, so I have to limit it.
- Buying shoes isn't really easy for me, cause my left foot is a little bit longer than the other and my size of shoe is moreover between 39 and 40. It's a challenge to find a fitting pair.
- Crime films enthuse me. Not the bloodthirsty-splatter-movie-alike-ones, but the suspenseful, oldfashioned. I'm a big fan of Margaret Rutherford playing Agatha Christie's Miss Marple. Just found out in wikipedia, that Stringer Davies, who played Mr.Stringer, was her husband. Isn't that great? What a wonderful and quirky couple!
