Went on a breakfast date this morning- was extremly odd. Turns out flirting in German is nearly impossible, especially when you are not really wanting to send out signals but don't quite know how to be nice but not too nice... Oh god I am so sick of inter-cultural communication, be it with Amis or Gerrys or what. Bring on the Aussies...
Spoke to Mum this morning- hi Mum!- God she is great. I was talking about how impressed I was that in my class the night before, all the Germans were agreed that you couldn't completely cut off someone's welfare benefits even if they refused to go to work or training courses, while in Oz that's just what we do. Mum:
Well you know darling they don't want to let people starve becuase during the war they really did starve while in Australia, well you could just go shoot a rabbit or something.
I'm going shopping. Fuck it.
