In honour of Der Tag der Deutschen Einheit (which I honestly didn't know about until LJ told me), here's a picture of mr_t00by at the site of the (former) Berlin Wall, with one foot in the East and one in the West:




I'd do what LJ's Writer's Block suggests and talk about the Cold War, but my brain is fried from being in two political systems at once last night (AVISO: This condition will likely not last long, you have been warned).

I should celebrate this day more. Without the wall coming down I wouldn't be in Canada now - anyway, they chose this date randomly. We actually should celebrate November 9., the day the wall really did fall.

Even more reason to celebrate!

That's weird, huh? I wonder why they do that. We have Monday holidays in the US, where we celebrate the holiday on the closest Monday (so it's a long weekend), but the holiday is never more than two or three days different.

Even weirder: the woman who's married to the Berlin wall.

That married thing is weird. I mean, seriously? She must have been devastated when we teared down the wall...

All right, on November 9. the wall came down but one year late on October 3. we officially became one country again. I still think they should have synced that.

She must have been devastated, but yeah,people married to walls and buildings and stuff is just...reallyreally odd (The Centre Block and I are just dating, honest! ;)

Oh, okay, that makes a little more sense, but I agree with you. If the wall hadn't come down, Germany wouldn't have become one country again, so really, it's the most important part of things.

I don't mean to imply a mere superficial relationship, mind you. I'm just as interested in the inside as I am the outside.

*sigh* These long-distance relationships can be tough sometimes.
