Talking old computer bluesCollapse )

This morning was the first time I didn't wake up feeling like shit, with a dry throat and a full nose. Maybe at last my cold is wearing off. This weekend I must do at least some of my RIB homework, but I will also really, really try and catch up on my friends' LJs, I promise.

I have been busy doing some projects. I tend to become very monomaniacal about things, giving them my full attention while everything else is put more or less on hold until I finish the project or get bored with it or the novelty wears off sufficiently for me to wake up and realize that there are still lots of other interesting things to do, as well. That is basically also what happened with livejournal. At first I was so absorbed in it that there was no room for anything else, but slowly I began to feel that it would be nice again to read a book occasionally. :)

I am still decluttering and have started to reorganize my wardrobe. And last week I suddenly panicked because I have to send in my 4-weekly application form to Social Security tomorrow, and I had nothing to show them yet. So I have been scouring the Internet looking for reasonably suitable vacancies, and have managed to find a few, one of them actually very interesting. Hopefully it has not been filled yet. At least for the moment I can breathe a sigh of relief.


And now, on to some stolen goods.

This must be the cutest sheep I've ever seen, it's looking so sweet and alert. And those ears! ^^ All of a sudden I can totally understand Gene Wilder in that old Woody Allen movie. LOL!

I came across an interesting image in a Russian photo journal, look!



I'm waiting for written approval of the reintegration plan. It will probably arrive too late for me to start the course in April, which means I'll have to wait until September. Oh, well.

Currently the first series of Dead like me is being repeated. Hopefully this means they're going to broadcast the second series after all...

I'm still busy decluttering, mainly paper, and also my computer. I have finally cleaned out my inbox, it is now down from over 200 messages to a mere 23. I am also deleting files and getting rid of some memes:

The weekend was full, but nice, except that H. (the BF) was ill. I had to write a few application letters, and have been decluttering, mostly papers. Saturday night I watched From hell, which proved that a film with Johnny Depp and a host of great British actors can still be shite. On Sunday night I went to see a comic play with my mum and we had a great time. We told each other we should really do this more often. We'll see.

Monday night the BBC showed The conversation and of course I had to watch it.

This was the third or fourth time for me, and while I still find it a great film, I think I'm done with it now. A bit odd, because usually when I love a film I can watch it over and over again, but in this case the element of suspense is too important, I guess. When you've seen it and know what's going to happen, it loses a lot of its interest. But perhaps that's just the way I feel because it lasted until 3 a.m. and by 2:30 I had already become very sleepy and wanted the film to end.

This morning I woke up to a white world. Ugh! Snow is nice for the Christmas holidays and that's about it, IMO. Fortunately in the afternoon most of it had gone, but more is expected. Hrm. Some good news: I received the reintegration plan today, so tomorrow I'll phone up my case manager (if he is in...) to make an appointment, or maybe I can just drop it off.

I also made a culinary discovery. Last year I had bought a pack of instant miso soup from the organic shop, as I had heard that it is a healthy snack and very suitable for hypoglycaemics, due to its protein content. After trying 3 times I decided that I Did Not Care for miso soup. I still had 9 one-cup-packets left, and this afternoon when I felt peckish I tried it again, but this time I added some dried bruschetta which I had acquired recently. And it tasted really good! I might even buy the miso soup again. :D

And over the past few days I have tried to catch up with lj, but people have been posting like mad, so I'm not quite up to date yet... well, what else is new.
