  1. Not really missing alcohol

    You've quit alcohol, so this might be an option :)
  2. Which place is the best to live in Germany

    Don't pick Frankfurt!
  3. Transnational family in a pandemic world :-(

    Good for you   You're saying there was an urgent need to travel, though. I don't think we have that. We just want her and the grandkids to be able to see each other, especially since the boy is now almost 2 and she's missed most of that. Does that count? I'm not sure. My partner probably won't think so 😜

    Wait, what? Does this work? Can my mom visit?
  5. Transnational family in a pandemic world :-(

    Mom from California hasn't been able to visit the grandkids here for over a year. She used to come 2-3 times a year, and we would go once every couple of years. The annoying thing is she has been fully vaccinated, but the EU is dragging its fucking heels.
  6. I arrived like 20 minutes before I think. Not long. I got my passport in a couple of weeks. I used the passport status alert website which let me know my passport had been sent to the consulate after only six days. I then expected it to be sent to me a couple of days later, but no luck, so I emailed them asking whether I would receive it soon as I needed to cross a border. They said it takes time for the passport to get sent out of the consulate, but I think they did me a favor and sent mine off. So, you can always do this and even make up a reason if you're not really traveling.
  7. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

    No, they've been mentioned in the loosening of the rules.
  8. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

    And now FLORISTS!
  9. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

    No, but here and in the UK at least, it's hairdressers first, and then maybe schools. What the fuck have I missed in sociology that I don't understand this? I mean, why is the word 'hairdressers' even being uttered when the government is talking about what to re-open? Shouldn't they just be covered with the term 'and other businesses'? I do go to the barber's when I can (for the meager but skillful trim), so I am not just bashing a service I never use (like nail salons). I am just baffled.   And while we're at it, why aren't teachers already vaccinated??? Ok ok, wrong thread.
  10. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

    Is it just me or is this obsession with opening up hairdressers ridiculous?
  11. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

    Yup been using an electric trimmer. I'm going bald anyway so this is basically my future. Get a good one!
  12. Where to buy FFP2 facemasks in Berlin?

    Yeah you're right, but some masks have really good wires. I wear glasses, and I've come across these once or twice. I don't know the brand, though, so I haven't been able to find them.   The other thing you can do, that doctors and nurses do, is tape the mask at the top. Annoying, yes, but if you're walking straight to the supermarket or something, it's a good option.
  13. Where to buy FFP2 facemasks in Berlin?

    Glasses fog up because hot, moist, exhaled air escapes via the TOP of the mask and onto your glasses. The way to keep this from happening is to have a strong wire in the mask that can be formed perfectly to the shape of your nose and face so that this air is forced to exit the mask area from the bottom, sides or preferably, just the mask material.
  14. Brexit, New residence permits

    Speak for yourself, Saddam. I do not tolerate those fucknuts. You tolerate them, and they put you in a woodchipper.
  15. Where to buy FFP2 facemasks in Berlin?

    Yes, vronchen and I just want it clear that if you cannot find FFP2 masks, you are not screwed. You can wear single-use surgical masks, too. It's not a discussion of which is better. Obviously, FFP2 masks filter more. If you want to wear those, go for it. It is just not required.
