- Darf ich noch kurz anmerken, dass "boring", "lang-weilig" für mich persönlich kein Schimpfwort ist! Boring ist für mich gleichbedeutend mit langsam, genussvoll, Platz lassen...kurz, das Gegenteil von hektisch und anstrengend.
- I would like to add that boring is not a negative notion for me - it contains an antidote to a hectic world, a space to think - or not.

On the topic of all yesterday's parties - here's a poem I posted three years ago, when I still had dark hair...
If you ask me 'What's new?', I have nothing to say
Except that the garden is growing.
I had a slight cold but it's better today.
I'm content with the way things are going.
Yes, he is the same as he usually is,
Still eating and sleeping and snoring.
I get on with my work. He gets on with his.
I know this is all very boring.
There was drama enough in my turbulent past:
Tears and passion-I've used up a tankful.
No news is good news, and long may it last,
If nothing much happens, I'm thankful.
A happier cabbage you never did see,
My vegetable spirits are soaring.
If you're after excitement, steer well clear of me.
I want to go on being boring.
I don't go to parties. Well, what are they for,
If you don't need to find a new lover?
You drink and you listen and drink a bit more
And you take the next day to recover.
Someone to stay home with was all my desire
And, now that I've found a safe mooring,
I've just one ambition in life: I aspire
To go on and on being boring.
