Cycled to town today. A bookstore had an artbook box I was interested in. It wasn't cheap, but that was OK since I still have that prize I won with a crossword years ago: 50 euros in book coupons.

Anyway lots of snow prevented me from undertaking any large cycling trip that I wouldn't get paid for, but today I decided to go anyway.

It was sold already. Damn.

... I think I described my phobia of telephones earlier on in this topic, and I'm too embarrassed to discuss it again...

Removed a video in my BB-account for copyright violation.

WHich one? Oh, you probably missed it: it's my dad's impression collage of the photos and videos that we made during the prize festival of Het Financiele Dagblad, when I won 1000 euros because I'm so good at my paper route. He had used one of those songs he got for free with our Vista on the background. It had gotten 200 viewers in two years time, some losers gave it one star (so that yours truly, also loser, logged in under her male-63-from-Beverly-Hills account and gave it five stars), and out of the blue I get copyright issues with it. Stupid.

Ah, I'm afraid I missed that. My apologies, Bonny.

No worries, dear.

Things aren't looking too rosy on the BB edge. Saturday I had the shock of opening the door to my mother's husband (you may remember I broke with my mother a year ago), so I closed it immediately, put on the locks, closed all the living room curtains, went upstairs and ignored all the bell ringing. (that's pretty hard. Our doorbell's designed to give you a heart attack)

After that I grabbed my clay (after phoning my sister in panic, but she didn't answer) and started claying. Great stress relief!

And that night my grandmother was hospitalized again. Oh dear...

Today was uneventful, thank goodness. I could use a break after last weekend.

Tomorrow I will be doing two routes, as one of my colleagues is unavailable. Not looking forward to it, I'll have to get up at 4AM now.

Which I did this morning. I was home by 8. Guh. I felt horrible, pain in back and hips... feeling sleepy and hungry, coming home too tired to fix breakfast... I need a hug.

I cannot add one! Even though I added several previously (such as the :pissed: and :rsvd: and :regan: ). That was when we were still with Servage. I really don't know how to do that anymore.

Either way I did make the "hugging pumpkin" once. Another forum I frequented at the time had a group hug smiley, so to improve loveliness on zappa.com I made one to suit the group there.

Is it still here? I wonder...


I couldn't get it animated. Even though I did colour every pumpkin picture. I was PISSED!

Pissed as in drunk or pissed as in angry? I have to say, I'm not used to you using such language!

I was really angry. It had taken me hours colouring all those pumpkins, and then I couldn't get them to work!
There are no good "mild" words that could describe the state I was in, only understatements.

Today was the last of four days.
We're in the middle of the bonus period now. They have such events twice a year to ensure good delivery: one is in the summer (work 9 weeks and get 11 paid) and the other one in January (work 9 weeks and get 10). I suddenly received much more complaints because I had to get up so early (and still finished way too late). Yesterday I had to explain it all three times to people who I caught walking out.
I'd be pretty angry if I'd lose my bonus because my colleague couldn't find a single replacement, which I said to my boss. She was kind enough to say that, if that would happen, she'd give me my colleague's bonus instead.

This morning was nasty. Normally the newspapers arrive at 4 (I'd be on the job at that time, get up 15 minutes earlier and race myself to the station), but today they came at 5! I'll receive extra money for the waiting, but... to be honest... I'd rather have an extra hour of zleep. I'm exhausted. And feeling sick.

Had fourteen hours of sleep last night. I feel good, although still a little sick.
Today is my boyfriend's birthday. I wonder how he is, it's been a while!

Found something I was looking for!


Chinese Girl by Vladimir Tretchikoff. It's in Hitchcock's Frenzy and in Rocky Horror.

I just started my new job this week. We've just had a couple of days of professional development. I knew one or two of the staff there as I did some casual work in a different section of the college last year, but I've met most of the staff this week and they seem a good bunch to work with, which is a relief of course. I've got one class starting their second semester next week, who were mid year intake students last year and my other two classes starting first semester the week after. The new kids starting at the beginning of this year have their orientation next week, but other than a meet and greet on Monday, I'm not involved in that, so I'm getting a good two weeks of gradual wind up to having a regular teaching job again.
