Another uneventful day. I have been doing laundry, two machine loads and one bucket load. This morning it snowed, but in the afternoon the weather was beautiful and sunny, so I braved the cold and ventured out for a while.

When I came back, I wanted to pay some bills online, but found out that there was only just enough money to pay next month's rent. I have now 12 euros left in my account. It is such a nuisance that I receive my unemployment benefit on a 4-weekly basis instead of monthly. I can't keep track of when it is paid out exactly, and it totally screws up my financial organization. Most of my (monthly) recurring expenses are automatically deducted at the beginning of each month, so I'll probably be in the red the coming week. Yuk.


Remembering the success with the miso soup, I tried a little bruschetta in the spaghetti aglio e olio tonight. That also tasted good. I should write a book: "101 Ways You Had Never Dreamed Of Using Bruschetta". I can see a sparkling future as innovative cook ahead of me. Watch out, Jamie Oliver!

I have had very little time to read lj lately and so am still not up to date. I'd like to suggest you all take a posting break and let me catch up and catch my breath, how's that? :)

OK, time for The Mighty Boosh!

Haha, I think I should apologize for updating five times today! I couldn't help it! I'm finding very nice images lately! At least, you won't strain your eyes reading a lot...

That is true, and I didn't mind at all! Those images were charming indeed.

Ah, but that is because I was so far behind I didn't read my friends page anymore, but the individual journals (to see the big picture more clearly), and yours was among the first I read. :)
Anyway, I am almost up to date now. I deleted a couple of heavy-traffic photo communities from my friends list and made myself a member instead, so I can check them when I feel like it. On a day-to-day basis that helps me to focus more on my person-friends' entries.

I can see you on talk shows and at book signings now, giving demonstrations and free samples (with purchase of book, of course!). And then your own show! World fame! It all awaits you! In another dimension....

*runs*

I get in the 'lj-backlogs', and then spend several days catching up, just finished doing that. It's addictive to read people's ljs. And I feel guilty if I peek into someone's and run away without commenting, I do that to a few.

Now I have to go post. I have that urge, when someone suggests I do one thing, I MUST do the opposite! ;)

Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement, dahling! Rest assured that I will present you with a signed copy of my book, in another dimension, of course!

How frightfully immature, dahling...

;P
