Yay, people read it! :bald:

There's been a lot of surprises while I was making this, most recently it was finding Theodor Holman, a grumpy rightwing foreigner hater columnist, turned out to have interviewed FZ at the age of 16, with his friend, lugging a forty pound tape recorder - and speaking too little English to pull it off. Sure was a perceptive changer!

But also stuff I didn't write down, like how often his music was played by classical music players, flanked by other classical music, even during his lifetime. All the little projects he mentioned like once in an interview somewhere and that never got off the ground.
...Aaaaanyway...

Tried to call my granny on monday, to wish her a merry christmas, couldn't reach her. I tried again yesterday, couldn't reach her either. Finally, my mother called me late in the afternoon to tell me my grandmother was hospitalized for a little stroke, nothing serious, apparently. It sucks.

Went to a pancake restaurant with BF's family, parents, three kids plus their sweethearts, and 3 grandkids. Was fun!

Happy new year everybody!

NYE was great, all BF's family went to celebrate it at his sister's house, we lit fireworks and watched the fireworks from the roof at midnight, which was breathtaking.
Today I had to go home, and I celebrated by throwing up my first dinner of the year.

No, just your regular food poisoning.

BF's family's hit hard times, with his mother and both grandmothers in need of specialized healthcare - there's a good chance he'll lose both his grandmothers in the same month.

Happy new yearto you, guys.

Well, my grandmother's been hospitalized again, she should go out this week. I don't think she's gonna last long. We'll see.

Sorry to hear about your boyfriend's family's health difficulties, Bonny. It's a bad time for grannies; apparently.

Well, it's ok, she's pretty old, she doesn't want to stay around forever anyway, these are her words, lol.

And by the way, regular food poisoning is the best of food poisonings, you can really feel the pain, not like those fancy artsy millennial food poisonings derived from the consumption of soy related products and veggies that they have nowadays... ;-)

Actually, at Christmas, I ate so much in such a restricted period of time I nearly thres up. I'm no longer used to eating that much.

At the moment it's rather difficult "thanks" to twenty years of right-wing politics, we're all obligated to have health insurance or else pay a fine. The state subsidises poorer inhabitants like yours truly - I get 85 euros per month to pay for healthcare.

There's a legally set obligated fee you have to pay before you can get to the insurance - I think it's around 300 euros now, this means that a lot of poorer people who are in need of (often mental) health care are not getting it becuase they can't afford it.

Generally healthcare quality is quite good. BF's family however living up north, which is not the ideal place for people to live permanently. Whether that influences the healthcare, I hope not. But one problem he told me about is the local hospitals sometimes run out of money before the year is out, which means bigger surgeries and treatments are sometimes either moved to another hospital, or postponed to the new year.

I've been busy cutting down a very large tree.

I hope you're feeling better Bonny.

Better... How's the tree coming along? Are you still in one piece?

We now no longer have a paper phonebook, talk about the end of an era.
I've never been in a phone book in my life.
