Normal is not something to aspire to, it's something to get away from.

I went bowling last night and I broke my own personal best, which was 167 pins. My new personal best is 185 pins. \o/

I spent so much money today!

So, first I bought a new external harddrive, because it was cheap and you can't have have enough external harddrives... or something like that ;-).

And then I went to my optician for a check up on my contact lenses. We both were rather surprised that I hadn't been there in three years. Oops. I wear hard contact lenses, they last longer and I've never really had problems. My eye sight hasn't gotten worse, but I will get new contact lenses, because the old ones are... old.

While I was there I thought it was a good moment to ask about new glasses, since I've been unhappy with my glasses for some time now. I decided to get new, trendy frames with new eyeglass lenses. Yay.

I will get my new glasses and my new contact lenses next week. I can't wait! And good thing I get my monthly salary plus the vacation pay next week. :-D

And because I can never remember, I asked my optician how myopic I am. I've got -7.00 diopter for each eye. I've tried to find a conversion chart for diopter to 20/something, since I know most of you (only North Americans?) primary use that. I've only found this here, so -7.00 corresponds to about a vision of 20/900 or 20/1000?!? I have no idea.

In any case, without glasses or contact lenses I can only see shapes and colors and no details. Without glasses or contact lenses I wouldn't recognize my own mother or brother should I meet them in the street.

Maybe it was only a second of your time, but you need to treasure life, every second.

On Monday I was stuck in this stupid trainings course for the new time management system, this time it was all about the admin stuff that I have to do (approving vacation, random day offs, sick days, correcting things, taking control samples, etc.). It was boring and headache inducing.

Monday evening we had another bowling tournament, where I didn't do all that great. Oh well, next time I'm going to do better.

Yesterday, I was miserable all day long. I had a massive headache and I took two different kinds of painkillers (Ibuprofen and Paracetamol) and they didn't do anything. I left work early, went to the pharmacy to get yet another different kind of painkillers. Thankfully those worked.

Today I felt a lot better! Yay!

And tomorrow I will get on the train and visit saba1789! Wohoo! I can't wait! It's been too long since we've seen each other :-D. And on Saturday we will go see AJ in concert. Yay!

And I still need to do so much before I can leave. Packing for one thing! I see lots of packing and repacking and rerepacking in my future. *headdesk*

Put yourself on view. This brings your talents to light.

I really suck at this birthday thing this year. I've already missed a couple birthdays. Bad me.

So, Happy (belated) Birthday, jewelianna and meinnim! And Happy Birthday, turps33! I wish you all lots of love and all the best! *hugs*

I'm slowly getting the hang of this bowling stuff. This year we started a year long tournament and the important thing is that I'm not the last one in the current ranking (I'm #18 out of 21 players). Yay for finally improving!

Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.

Happy Birthday, franzi1981! All the best! *hugs*

I went bowling yesterday and for the first time someone actually bothered to tell me how to improve. In the past, people just gave me a pat on the head (figuratively speaking) and said "you'll get better" or they told me what to do, but no one told me how to do it. I still wasn't all that great, but it still makes all the difference, because I feel a lot better about my technique.

Anyway, after I came home from bowling I watched Collapse )

And now a few facts about me (gacked from padfootie):

  • If it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, and feels like chicken but Bettina says its beef, then it's beef.

  • Bettina sleeps with a night light. Not because Bettina is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Bettina.

  • The easiest way to determine Bettina's age is to cut her in half and count the rings.

  • Bettina knows the last digit of pi.

To be amused by what you read--that is the great spring of happy quotations.

Saturday night two of my co-workers and I went to this African restaurant here in town. I didn't even know we had one. It was really good, too! I will go there again and try something else. I love eating my way through the menu of a restaurant I like ;-). The only downside was that we had to wait for the food so damn long!

I wore the best t-shirt ever to work today. It's this one. It probably amuses me way too much, though. Heh.

Tonight bowling. Should I even bother? :-/

The universe is a big place, perhaps the biggest.

Just for the record; I made last place at the bowling tournament (wow, what a surprise... not). I did win the "most gutter" category, though. I even got a certificate. *sighs*

And now for something happier. I watched the latest Collapse )

And now we have to wait until January for more episodes of Psych! Oh no! Luckily my other shows return soon. Phew.

A friend sent me a postcard... from Moscow! So cool!

The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

Happy Birthday, trumpeterofdoom! All the best! *hugs*

We're going to have our first bowling tournament tonight. It's just a club thing, but I already know that I'm going to lose big time. I have the worst score of everyone and it's really depressing going into it like that. I know it's supposed to be fun and most times it really is, but I'm also a sore loser. I just hate losing all the time. Meh.

Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.

I'm swamped with work and I had to stay longer to get at least half way done and the more work I have the crankier I get and I really need to deal with stress better than I do now and maybe then I can even stop writing run-on sentences, but at the moment no chance and I'm getting Twitter updates on my phone again, yay.

I totally forgot to mention it yesterday, but meinnim wrote me a great Roswell comment fic for the comment fic meme! I love Kyle and Isabel!

I'm undecided if I should go bowling tonight. On the one hand, it's great to let off some steam, on the other hand, I feel very anti-social (and I also don't really want to see two of my co-workers who are going to be there). :-/

When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books.

They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind.


Sib's going to pick me up in about half an hour and then we're going to Graz for a bit of sightseeing and other stuff. I've been to Graz once when I was little, but I can't really remember anything. It's going to be good, but I'm still a bit out of it, pretty much anti-social and need my alone time. Bleh.

Last night's bowling session was just like the one on Monday. I'm just not good enough and it's frustrating when you don't hit any of the pins and you're in general worse than everyone else. This bowling club thing probably wasn't a good idea, at least me being part of it wasn't.

My right shin is turning yellow-ish and it looks pretty bad. I show it to people just to shock them ;-). And I have a rash on my chin. Gah!

In fannish news; I watched the first four episodes of Psych and it's so damn funny! I can't wait to see the other episodes, but it's going to take some time to get them. Booh.

So, anyway, be good boys and girls, see you all tomorrow night.
