Bad news first. I didn't get the job. It wasn't such a big thing anyway, so yeah. No use feeling bad about it. Thanks for crossing your fingers, though.
And the flat. Well, I haven't heard anything from the landlord yet. Might be a good sign or not, idk. *keeps fingers crossed*
More bad news. Jessi got fired. I don't know why yet. We didn't manage to talk about it because her boyfriend is on a 'I love you but I need time to think about our relationship' thing a the moment, and moved back in with his parents. He said, only for a couple of days etc. etc. But idk.
Jessi's feeling horrible and is staying at her mom's. Jessi told me they are both not happy about it. Her mom moved in with a new boyfriend, and Jessi has to share a bed with her brother due to lack of a guest room and stuff.
Right now she just wants to be alone and hide in her brother's room. But she said that she wants to meet up on the weekend and I hope we'll be able to talk about stuff.
I'm worried about her and really hope that everything will turn out to be okay soon. And that her boyfriend will make up his freaking mind asap!
I'm almost glad I'm single. No trouble with boyfriends and their attitudes.
On Thursday night our internet connection died. Again. Oh, what a surprise! It took four days to find out why and one more day to fix it. They are specialists, they said! Haha.
I could check my e-mails and use twitter via my computer at work, but that's about it.
Not really a bad thing.
I was being busy with other things anyway.
I went to a little hiking tour in Austria. Only about 5 kilometers, because I had Oswald with me (and small dogs are not supposed to run such long distances etc.) and the weather wasn't nice.
But we met a bunch of nice people and Oswald fell in love, again. With a Great Dane lady named Bambi. We met people with smaller dogs too, but he completely ignored them and just focused on the Great Dane. She wasn't too impressed, as you can imagine, but kept chasing him around and let him hide underneath her when it started to rain. I couldn't stop laughing. What dorks.
Too bad I didn't have my camera with me. It really was a hilarious sight.
I keep thinking about getting another dog, to keep Oswald company. He just enjoys playing with other dogs so much. IDK. Maybe next year. Depends on whether I'm going to have a new job/flat until then. *file this under: daydreaming*
What follows next is a report about my adventures in book sorting, book stamping, book stacking, book searching and finding and oh, look who's found her old bookmarks!
I was looking for my copy of Ship of Fools when I suddenly thought it would be a good idea to finally put my ex-libris in all the books I hadn't stamped yet. Turned out I forgot to put the stamp in all of the books that I put into the 'actually made for my record player and records but I'll just put books in it because otherwise they'd be all over the place' shelf the last time I sorted them. Ooops.
That's what my ex-libris stamp looks like.
I didn't find Ship of Fools, perhaps because I never owned it but only borrowed it from the library ages ago! *fails*
But I did find my long lost copy of The Moomins (this is relevant, because it's the Moomins for heaven's sake!) and some bookmarks. Some never used, and some I left in the books after reading them. I'm good at this 'searching for one thing and finding something completely different' business, you see. I should go looking for that one euro coin I lost the other day, maybe I'll end up finding a whole million! Hah!
No, I don't have a thing for bookmarks, what makes you think that? I just love to buy one whenever I'm travelling, to have some sort of reminder idk. Most of them were gifst though. I love the little magnetic ones I get from my mom every year for my birthday.
I used to make lots of bookmarks myself, back when that thing you call creativity loved me like no other, but gifted most of them to friends or simply lost them. The Bernard one is still there though, mit den Schwammerl in den Haaren.
I had no idea I had a Captain Kirk bookmark until I found it in a collection of short stories by Gogol. Must have been ages since I read them.
I've sorted everything by now. There are still way too many books on the floor, but well. They'll have to stay there until I can afford a new shelf.
What else did happen. Let's see...
- I had my hair cut, again. It's really, really short in the back now and I love it.
- I'm doing sports, again. Well, only jogging atm, but that is a sport!
- I'm on a diet. Not to lose weight, but simply to detox my body and to make my metabolism and blood levels happy.
You're basically living vegan for a week, then add things like milk, fish and chicken to your diet plan, for a week, then vegan again, and then, my favourite, soup week! I keep having a soup week every autumn and it really is fabulous. My list of recipes is steadily growing. And besides, it's pumpkin time! Pumkin soup is one of the best things ever, don't tell me otherwise.
Let's not talk about the things cooking anything that's made of pumpkin (not to mention beetroot!) does to your kitchen, okay?
BBs, I hope you're all fine. Stay fabulous!
