Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

They are strange
Okay, somehow we speak a common language, we share lots of our history and worldwide we're not really perceived as a difference, but somehow these Austrians are really, really weird.
We have them here a bit as joke-victims, when you have to compare nations (like in jokes like "An Englishman, an american and a Russian man die and go into heaven.....", the last and most stupid one is usually the Austrian in german jokes.
What they speak is somehow german, but a strange version and a strange dialect to it, which can make it really hurtfull to talk to someone from Vienna, for example.
And when I now read, what Bill writes about Austria media - yes, my prejudice is confirmed, they are strange!
