05:45 pm - Hah. I'm being ANGRY, today ;-)!

Okay, seriously. I've been ANGRY yesterday already. And again, seriously: I'm amazed and also amused, in my private little way. I'm practically never "angry". Not for long, at least.

So what's up? Not really sure. I'm sick, that's a big part of it. Not SICK sick, just this majorly annoying head cold that already spoiled my Sunday.
So, Monday morning, the first really STUPID thing I encountered already set me off ;-).

And since, all kinds of other STUPID stuff turned up, reliably. I snapped at my innocent coworker, even. Apologized, soon after. But still. Me?!

Eh, well. There sure is enough stupidity around.
And I'm exhausted. Also, once more, I'm way past the moment - if it ever were possible to identify that one - where I can safely just turn my back and let things go to hell in any peaceful way.
It's slowly dawning on me that next year, the only thing that will go to 80% there will be probably be my salary :-p.

Fact is that still, at least when I'm not sick - in summer, say, if we ever again get one that deserves its name - that job is entirely feasible, and it's mine to keep, as long as it's there and I can stand it.

So yeah, I'll get my head around it all and calm down, one of these days.
Was an interesting experience, though. Me, irrational, unfair and ANGRY ;-)!

Current Mood: amused more than angry, by now :-D

03:50 pm - Life goes on :-).

Found one fantastic text that at least goes some way to make the global goings-on a bit more - I hesitate to say "understandable", but see for yourself, if you've got time...

On the real life front, things plod along. Sort of okay-ish ;-).

It's been awfully cold, but as sunny and dry as it *should* have been during summer, so no snow yet. Wonder how long that's going to hold out.

And seriously: There's nothing else to report, my life is just too boring. Which, of course, is a rather good thing, given all the nasty alternatives.
That I even notice might point to a certain unused capacity - who knows, something will shortly come along to demand it...?

03:52 pm - Reading that paper again.

After a week of dodging pretty much everything but work and a day of trying to rest flat on the sofa with a fat book, I've finally managed to pick up some papers again.

Now, this isn't a joyful experience, as you may have guessed ;-).
But in a way, it seems to reconnect me to reality and make me feel like a member of society again.

longish rumination about me and reality in general ;-)Collapse )

02:30 pm - Winter, finally.

After snowing all night and morning, it has changed halfway to rain, now. At least down here it has ;-). Not pretty, out there. I pity all the city workers who had to get up early today for the plowing!

Dad and Ch. had planned to go to Morschach today. Luckily, they have reserved a 4-wheel driven taxi. It's not too bad up there, only about 10 cm. (It's 600m high, compared to the 1500m of Feldis, where the webcam is snowed it solidly ;-).

Me, I'm safely holed up here. Eating way too much, as usual. Reading all day. Trying to NOT think about the fact that 2015 will be the last year of peace and safety for me and succeeding most of the time.

05:05 pm - No rest for the - STUPID :-)!

So, this afternoon, after preparing my layouts here on the laptop, I pack that laptop, head to the shop, set it up there - only to realise I've left the bloody photos at home...!

How idiotic can I be?! I'm just way too used that everything I'd ever want to copy, print, use or look at is right there online and travels with me wherever I go :-p.
Of course, that's no excuse.

So, in icy drizzle, and because I don't want to hang around until our meeting time, I travel on to K's house. He is all grateful and stuff - still believes that the banksters will finally deliver his 20000k that they're bouncing around between GB and here since October, though. He'll have to try to sort it out from the other end over Christmas, poor him.

Eh, well. So there we go again tomorrow. Am I ever glad I'll only have to produce those cards on Friday! Since Dad wouldn't tell exactly what he wants on the phone, I'm sure I'll get it wrong anyway :-p.
But I sure tried...

10:50 am - Happy Birthday, framstag!

Wish you a fine day and an even better year!

10:43 am - This one's a challenge:

I might have to cheat....

Day One: Ten random facts about yourself.
Day Two: Nine things you do everyday.
Day Three: Eight things that annoy you.
Day Four: Seven fears/phobias.
Day Five: Six songs that you’re addicted to.
Day Six: Five things you can’t live without.
Day Seven: Four memories you won’t forget.
Day Eight: Three words you can’t go a day without using.
Day Nine: Two things you wish you could do.
Day Ten: One person you can trust.

1: Check two mail accounts, Lj and twitter - on my macbook pro. Yes, I'm a mac person, even if I have nothing but windows at work now. I really thing it's so much prettier and lots more practical.

2: Read a paper. Or several. Even if I don't take any sunday papers, some will always be left over.

3: Eat :-). On weekdays, I don't eat before 6pm. But on the weekends, I hugely enjoy my "breakfast" (around 11am) of "Zopf" and jam and a huge jar of milky coffee. ( wikipedia: Zopf or Züpfe is a type of Swiss bread made from white flour, milk, eggs, butter and yeast. The dough is brushed with egg yolk before baking, lending it its golden crust. It is baked in the form of a plait and traditionally eaten on Sunday mornings.)

4: Drink coffee, in fact. Weekdays it's one to three nasty plain versions, just for the caffeine.

5: Sleep for as long as possible. Which isn't as much as it used to be before menopause, sadly. I LOVE sleeping and dreaming.

6: Turn on the tv, mostly to help me fall asleep. Luckily, we have our own version of "tivo", so I can take several starts on movies that I really want to see the end of ;-)!

9: Smoke. Around 30 winstons a day. Have been doing this since age 13. Still waiting for the "killer effect" :-p.

There, I didn't even cheat!
