Knock-knock-knockin’ on Christmas’s Door

This is so weird. I just can’t explain the German obsession with this song.

This was taken this evening at the Lucreziamarkt (am Haidplatz), just a few minutes ago. It **proves** (despite the whole Hasselhoff thing) that they are not making bad choices with regard to music just to be “ironic.”

Because there just aren’t enough Italian restaurants around here…

At Matthias’ suggestion, we went out last night to San Daniele, a local Italian restaurant in a part of town we rarely frequent.

It was dang-darn good — much better than most of the Italian restaurants around here. They’re all just OK. This was noticeably better.
