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.

yees - it's this time again, where in some german cities, like Cologne, Mainz and Duesseldorf, nothing works like it usually does. Where, like today, about 1.000.000 people come from all over the world to Cologne and watch and celebrate the Monday-Parade.
Wonderful! Yesterday was the parade for the schools and little suburbial groups, where just about 400.000 people were, but today was the big one.
Of course we were there. And we'll be tomorrow in one of the suburbs to see Wondergirls Nanny who will be participating.
Here you can see Wondergirl (I have no idea how long the link will work) as she was yesterday hunting for "Kamelle" and "Strüüßjer" (Sweets and flowers are thrown from the parade to the folks watching). I think she looks a bit strange but she was angry for the photographer standing in front of her and not letting her run to the sweets, I guess.
It all started with last Thursday where we had the big party at the office. After some hours I then went into the Twon Hall to meet folks from my party to party on. On Friday and Saturday we had it pretty quiet. Sunday then had us joining the Parade and tody of course we just had to go. Luckily it wasn't raining, just a bit snow here and there. We were all pretty warm under our costumes, so we didn't have any freezing problems.
It's so wonderful to see the costumes of other people. While we usually deciede a day or two before what we'll wear, others seem to really ponder about it for weeks, work out most creative ideas and costumes - wonderful. Some nice pics are here or here to see.
So what, Tuesday at midnight we'll burn "Nubbel", because he drags all the sins from Carnival with him in the fire and then the party will be over until 11.11.04.
