Living In Berlin
|||||Boards of Canada||]|
Hello people... I've been loitering here and there and thought I'd slip in a post whilst no-one's watching.
I've been living in Berlin for more than 2 years- I'm only just coming to terms with the permanence of my life here and have realised, my head's been so far up my jacksie that I haven't managed to make many friends, especially not Brits.
This could also be as a result of me having been to a few Toytown meetups. Now don't get me wrong, Toytown does a lot of good but MY GOODNESS are there some ignorant, self-obsessed Expats there! It seems that they think, just because they managed to leave Britain/the States/wherever and live in Berlin for a sustained period of time, they're the dog's bollocks.
Berlin can be a lonely place but I have nothing in common with these people so I thought "Hell, I'll post to that LJ community and see what happens". Is there anyone out there who feels the same? I love Berlin but I miss the banter, cultural references ("Remember that kids TV show Trapdoor? Scared the living crap outta me as a kid") and general Britishness that I don't get from my boyfriend, colleagues and (handful of) non-British friends.
So if you're not an arrogant moron and you want to get together with some other non-arrogant, non-morons to drink some beer, talk about crap, not take life too seriously and maybe have a laugh, gizza comment!
