What a joyous, joyous month. Piss-rainy, cold, and I'll eat my fucking hat if anyone's seen the sun for a week. Oh, and Sunday doesn't count as I was hungover and didn't leave the house. Anyway, I think it's high time I started thinking about ways to Combat the Grey.
CTG Plan Nummer Eins: DRINK. I am now on my third winter in Berlin, and I feel it's going to be another of vaguely toying with alcoholism, which is not to be confused with my Daily Summer Drinking Plan, which is celebratory and social, and therefore not in anyway lamentable or worrying. Oh no, Winter Alcoholism is an entirely different show pony because it is born not out of joy and sunshine but cold, hard necessity. Seriously, I have not seen the sun in DAYS, all the kids are snotty as all get out and my umbrella has not dried out for four days straight. The only thing for it, literally, is to drink. I am trying to keep myself off the Gluehwein until atleast the third week of November but if this weather doesn't pick up I ain't making no promises.
CTG Plan Nummer Zwei: listen to weird Berlin and Brandenburg Radio stations. Namely Berliner Runkfunk 91.4. Seriously, it plays the HITS. Though, ironically, not at this very moment. Ha, no, total lies. Tom Jones, She's a Lady. Hells to the yeah.
CTG Plan Nummer Drei: Hot chocolate and knitwear and good books.Often it's good to go with the classics.
