Yesterday I watched "W" by Oliver Stone on TV, because I thought nothing better was on... I was probably wrong. What's up with that movie? It's just one of the worst I've seen in some time! Did I just miss the point or what? Bad actors, worse script... nothing decent about it...

New Year Bash 2009

It has been a (one) year old tradition here in the Biozentrum Basel that the Pieters lab from our floor organizes a "New Year bash" preferentially somewhere around new year... So yesterday was the day, and even though the whole Biocentre had been invited, some 50-70 people showed up on the best of all floors (the 5th) to celebrate with wine, beer, champagne and plenty of excellent food. We had a karaoke lounge that was occupied 90% of the time by Ania, Anke, Simon, Thommy, Aaron and me, proving our superhuman vocal capacities while singing the Bohemian Rhapsody and the other usual suspects. My singing skills in the meanwhile got fueled up by some fantastic Indian sweets that tasted like some kind of sugar wool melting away in your mouth, prepared by Rajesh's grandmother. It was a lot of fun, but I guess by some unknown reason, people refrained from entering our lounge... Later on, we turned to playing werewolf again, followed by ice diving and cart racing and so on. It was tons of fun, so I would like to thank all the people involved in making this possible.

Passwang - Snow Trekking in the Basel Land

Yesterday we went to the Passwang to do some snow shoe trekking (without snow shoes in the end, as the snow wasn't that deep). Nadine, Julie, Ania, Aaron, Adi and me trekked some 12 km in the most beautiful snowy landscapes, took tons of pics and enjoyed the marvelous weather. A track with geotagged pix will follow, for now enjoy the pics here and the panoramas here and here (they're big!!!).

EDIT: I have now included the GPS track from my Garmin... It's a kmz file that opens with Google Earth. Enjoy!

Well not really, but good enough for me! The perfect breakfast on a lazy Saturday morning. You need for 1.5 person (huge portion): 2 eggs, 330ml milk, a bit of cream to add, 3-5 Tablespoons of sugar, a pinch of slat, 230g flour, raisins (I could only find tinned cherries in my kitchen), a bit of rum, some vanilla sugar, some sparkling water to add to the milk, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and plenty of butter to fry it. You separate the egg white and make snow of it, which you carefully add at the end to the dough. Then you pour it all into a frying pan like a huge pancake and rip it all apart every minute or so until you get nicely golden brown clumps of dough. You serve it with plenty of powdered sugar.
