After many days of rain we finally got a few minutes of feeble sun today. And I managed to get sunburnt!

I miss having a driver and a maid. I suck at household chores and I don't want to drive.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

True story

My beloved Philips rotating blades shaving machine has broken down hours ago after over five years of impeccable service. Probably the battery is dead flat and it doesn't recharge anymore.

I had to use cheap plastic traditional Wilkinsons blades and shaving foam. What a disappointment it was when I cut myself. I guess I will need to wait till Monday and buy me the latest model.

I'm wearing shorts and my Macbook is too cold on my legs when I start it up, and too hot after it runs a while.

McDonalds breakfast at Zürich Enge station has only one type of Mcmuffin.

And it's 10 now and we probably won't make it there before it finishes.

My mountain bike headlight doesn't work properly anymore (Trelock); it's a pitty when you move production from Germany to the third world...die Qualität ist nicht gleich.
