I just noticed that there would be a problem with the top hat. It would be too heavy the way I planned to build it. :P

The paper model looked good. I think that if you made a model out of stiff card, and used plastic from something like a margarine tub for the "horizontal" sections, you'd get something light yet sturdy that could be painted to match the rest of it.

Awesome robot devil sculpture!  Looks just like him!  Like the picture where he's standing next to a Bender figure!

I always get ill when I do artistic stuff too, it sucks, but we've waited this long so we can manage I'm sure. Actually, I've only waited just over a week as I'd never clicked in here before tongue...

Obviously his illness was more serious than we thought, and he passed away.

The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated! I just cryogenically froze myself. This is the year 3000, right? wink

OK, to be honest, I never finished the project because the arms and legs I built didn't turn out the way I wanted them to be and at some point I lost interest. But the head with its torso is still sitting in the shelf next to me right now. Maybe I'll finish it someday. big grin

I find myself using 'Danke' all the time, and usually receiving the appropriate reply.

I'd concur on that point.  I don't use wŁnderbar nearly as often as I'd like. frown

How often do you use the word Herzleichtigkeit?

Probably not too often, as the word does not really exist in German smile
"Herzlichkeit" means "Heartiness" (though it is hardly used as a noun, but as the adjective "herzlich" = "hearty").
"Herzleichtigkeit" would mean "Heart Lightness".

So, dear kids and kidettes, that was Professor Heins German lesson for today, stay tuned for next lesson, when we will read the famous German "Nibelungenlied" in the Klingon original.

One of the wonderful things about German is that just like English, a particular word might not "really exist", but is instantly recognisable as having a certain meaning by a native speaker.

The word (whether it exists or not) was originally made known to me by my German teacher, who said that it referred to a state of not having a care or a trouble in the world. A fleeting, joyful feeling, where one is not weighed down with concern for anything in the slightest.

It's one of those random snatches of German (or possibly in this case not-quite-German) that I've retained. Other such fragments include how to tell somebody that there is a dredging machine in my trousers, and that I'm going to smack them in the head with a fat rabbit.

Anyway, the translation I was taught fits with "heart lightness", or "lightness of the heart", for a less literal and more poetic translation. It's nice to see that this is one of those words that may or may not be real, but definitely has a recognisable and clear meaning whether or not it is.
