Papers didn't get in until 9PM today. Think I should complain about that.

I'm currently working on my next QM test during the break, which is a take home assignment this time. I have a test on special relativity right after the break which I'm also preparing for.

I've hardly posted at all at zappa.com for some time now. It holds no interest for me any more.

The French word for "potato" is "pomme de terre", just like the Dutch. What is strange is that the French also have the word "patate" for potato as used in the phrase "Ítre une patate chaude", "to be a hot potato".




Have the courage of your convictions.

"Aardappel" doesn't sound sexy at all. The only phrase we have for them is you can have them "in your throat", which means you use an English R instead of a Till Lindemann R when speaking Dutch.

He's already had me baffled. I spent two days researching Seyss-Inquart to see how the Dutch feel about them.

Went to the eye doctor today.
Missed the blood red super moon eclipse for it.
I had to administer pupil enlarging eye drops an hour before the appointment - in the hospital a fellow patient helped me out with that until my father came.
The stuff is slightly prickly and immediately blurs badly - before long I can barely read.

Evntually I wasn't at the doctor's for long. She measured my eyes and detected I'm ever so slightly far-sighted (would have NEVER guessed that, short-sighted if anything...) and detects astigmata in the right eye. Basically that means that the eye is not perfectly round. Possibly caused by damage.
She then gave me the tip to buy cheap reading glasses to see if it is improving with the farsightedness. And absolutely nothing on the blurry vision in one eye, which was what I came in for.

I am seriously thinking of going to the GP to get another eye doctor.

Aaaand Back again!

Had some trouble this week after I lost my ID - we turned over the couch in order to find it and I checked with about 20 different stores. Turned out the man on the market who sells me cheese had found it. So now I got it back again, yay!

Bonny, I see you're keeping them on their toes at zappa.com. You won't ever change JayP, he's an idiot. It occurred to me when I was reading an article there about the Firewater Myth posted by MGG that idiots like JayP just wouldn't understand it.

And Downer is far too arrogant to be argued with. I think somewhere deep down, his heart is in the right place, but he's too clever with his arguments for his own good, hence he can say some very interesting things about a variety of issues but then come up with all that ridiculous crap about gun laws. And, "Which came first, bigotry or humans?", what the hell does that even mean?

Anyway, back to my work for the test tomorrow.




Have the courage of your convictions.

Yah better not get distracted. I don't mind flexing my muscles if I'm sure I'll win.

Found a beautiful book at a charity shop. It's a remembrance book about the battles of May 1940 in The Netherlands.

The test was a disaster.

Too bad about Gail. Too sad.

Sorry to hear about your test Poly...

I opened a topic on the Zappa section about Gail.

I wonder what they're doing with the forum.
