Banking Was Never So Easy, Not.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 21, 2014 in Internet |

The German Sparkasse (Savings Bank) teamed up with the excellent Martina Hill a while ago to produce a series of humorous adverts enticing people to open account with them. Where others offer special rates – severe restrictions apply! – or even a financial bonus for liking and for not liking the services, Sparkasse has concentrated […]

Back In The Day

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 20, 2014 in Internet |

A small moment of amusement when I came across this image. At first I wasn’t sure what it was meant to be – I’m younger than that! – so I did a quick search and discovered lots of error message art, all playing around Outlook Express and Microsoft and lauding the Apple Mac. Image Source: […]

I am prepared to lay a fairly big bet that this photograph attracts a certain amount of attention, and that very little of it is directed towards what this woman is actually doing. Photo Credit: midwestnerd – Creative Commons Go on, admit it: it took a long time before you noticed that there are two […]

How To: Women Picking Up Women

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 18, 2014 in Q&A |

If I was a free agent, that is, not bound in a good and loving relationship with someone already, I would probably hope someone would give me the right advice about picking up a woman as a woman. Whether I’d take that advice, whether I would believe the person giving it me, is another matter […]

The Ideal Profession?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 16, 2014 in Personal |

I caught a conversation the other day between two people who have a love of books.

The Cost Of Rudeness

A young man in the tram, going in to college this morning, discovered that a certain form of rudeness can be very expensive. He was sitting right at the back with his music player nodding along to whatever it was that he had playing at the time, something which those closer to him were allowed […]

Finding A New Low

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 14, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse than they already are, a new low for advertising. Well, from my point of view it is. Perhaps it addresses the truth, but that truth is also disturbing. Yes, I daresay people do check their cellphone whilst performing ‘other tasks’, log in to Facebook whilst their […]

Smartass Smartphone

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 13, 2014 in Personal |

Sometimes I wonder whether technology is really there to help us, or whether it has built-in frustrations designed to ruin our day. Still waiting for my new SIM card to allow me all the wonders of connection to the outside world, I have been setting up my new cell and exploring all the new possibilities. […]
