This is the Patrick I found when I came back to Germany (well w/o the sweater as I bought him that for Christmas). Note the shorter side burns and new glasses specificaly. He looks totally German. As such, I felt the need to amend my prior statement that he is the most un-German German. He is even getting more on time. In fact he is planning to hand in his paper 3 whole days before it is due! He even has a cell phone now. I don't know what happened to Patrick over Christmas break but it was for the better. As long as those side burns don't reach mamoth proportions again!
