auf weider- Einhänder

I'm off to Germany for the week, and don't actually expect to be able to stay online.  I'm going dark, friends.  If I were staying in a cheap hotel, the internet access would have been free.  Sheesh.

The only German I know is Einhänder and choice phrases from Castle Wolfenstein.  Wonder if they'll come in handy?

Thanks. This is a business trip, so I guess they're keeping me. (But I will post about the repercussions...)

Stalag 13?
Exiled to Germany? Wow, I guess you were a bad boy!

Say "Guten Tag" to Colonel Klink while you're there.

P.S.: what little German I remember I picked up from Hogan's Heroes reruns.

"Noch ein bier, bitte" is an additional survival phrase that comes in very handy.

Ooh, I was looking for that! Danke!

That phrase (maybe zwei) would have been the basis of this post, had I actually known it.

Wow! Have a lovely trip and a safe journey! ^^ You'll have to regale us with stories of where you went. I lived in Germany when I was wee, it'd be nice to live vicariously through you.

Get this: It's a business trip, and the conferences I'm attending are in the hotel at which I'm staying. I'll be lucky if I see the sky during the whole trip!
