Praise to Amazon?!

Did I mention that Amazon actually filled my order mentioned earlier?

Well, they did, and the parcell arrived in good order right the day before the party, so I was able to use the additionally ordered item to very good effect. "Good Bye, Lenin" is a very nicely and weirdly German film well worth watching for everyone interested in the post-unification German psyche. The sequence where the saluting Lenin statue flies past is just hilarious!

Anyway, I am still waiting for Isajah Berlin's Romanticism - I wouldn't be surprised of the delay if he'd been a romantic himself, but since that excuse is definitely not applicable in this case ...
