Yesterday, Jean and me went to town to shop a bit. I was still short of a christmas present for my brother anyway and it seemed a good opportunity. While it was quite crowded, we made our way to a nice record store which had a surprisingly good range of LPs on offer. For example they had all three White Stripes LPs on offer, which I hadn't seen in Germany before. I couldn't resist and had to buy two albums: Low's Things we lost in the Fire and the new Godspeed you Black Emperor album. Both a bit on the slow side. As usual, Jean got even more records - and will probably soon blame me for dragging him there and making him broke.

Then we proceeded to my favourite Hifi-dealer as I had to discuss a few things with him. We relaxed there for a while listeing to Jean's new Johnny Cash record. As always, his high-end system (costing the equivalent of a small house), sounded brilliant. Despite being sceptic at first, Jean couldn't resist liking it. Just a few more decades of saving then…

On our way back I passed the shoe store where I recently bought a pair of shoes that still squeak terribly on every step I make. To my surprise the immediately acknowledged that this is a problem with the shoes and I'll get a new pair. They'll even send it to their Göttingen branch, when they get it.

At night we went for dinner and chatting to an old teacher of ours.
