I'm looking for a name for my computer. I got him a couple of months ago and she is still unnamed.

In fact, I have named some of my plants to. A small guy with lots of tiny green leaves is called George. I don't know why, but he just looked like George.

My computer doesn't look like anything, really.

Sort of

I did sort of work today. I stared at my paragraph and changed a couple of words. I'll continue for half an hour. My back started hurting again.

Hi there, if anyone drops by at my blog, I wanna know... After that huge discussion we had on writing habits, profgrrrrl mentioned she goes to the gym every day.

So I wanna know, when do you do your exercise? When is the best time of the day? I don't really have appointments or classes, so most of the time I stay at home and work on my projects. Is it a good idea to exercise in the morning? Or in the evening? Or in the middle of the working process?

Preview for Monday

Gotta do a lot of ugly things tomorrow.

  • Pick up trash from floor

  • Empty all bins, including the paper bin

  • Pick up dirty clothes from floor

  • Put dirty clothes into the washing machine

  • Clean kitchen surfaces

  • Hoover the appartment really important! I picked up my black jeans from the floor today, they had a lot of gray dust on them!

  • Buy food for next week

  • Wash my hair I should go to the hairdresser some time

.... I guess I'll be fine when I just buy food, leaving the other things for another day....

Car accident

Today, I was driving along a very frequented street, when I suddenly had to brake hard. I heard a bumping noise, so I got out of the car. A motorcyclist was lying there. He didn't make it and crashed into my back.

Fortunately, the guy got up right away. There were only a couple of scratches on his bike. Anyway, I'm still

Very cool. You find them here.

Now I'm .

Very Proud

MMmmh, today I received the program of the Very Small Conference, where I will give a talk. I'm SO proud of myself! I have saved all the programs of the conferences where I had a talk on my disk. I love to flip them through and think that I am not a dumb ass. While I was in high school, I did this with my school reports every now and then.

And: I have beenn working for a couple of hours. IT IS FUN!!! And I'm having more and more really great ideas. I feel like a genius. Jippiejay!

To ensure that my high-feeling will last, I'm gonna go to the movies in the next couple of days, probably on Monday or Tuesday. This has just started. It's gonna be FUN, I'm sure!

Back to work

Hmm, I'm feeling better to day. At last. After that huge discussion on writing by profgrrrrl I really should start again. I have to check some references; so books, papers, copies - come to me! We'll have a hot time tonight!

I played a bit of Offenbach today. Very satisfactory.

I'm thinking of dropping over to my mom's to watch the evening movie. Or maybe I should sweep the kitchen floor. Or clean my desk. Or start another 800 pages novel.

My favourite comic is "What's Michael".

Season Quiz

Via Frogs and Ravens... I'm a winter.
You're a Winter. You very much enjoy your time
alone but do like other people's company
sometimes. You just need your space. You have a
few priviledged friends who saw past your
colder exterior to find the true you. You can
have pretty bad mood swings (though you hate to
admit it) so you could be soft one second then
storming around the next! But over all, you're
a very pleasant person once people take the
time to get to know you. You're a good friend
for in-depth talks. You're very talanted when
it comes to creative things.(If you can't see
tje pics, go to my homepage and look near the
bottom and find your result)

What season are you? (pics)
brought to you by QuizillaContrast
Dark shadow. Something has drawn you into darkness
in the past, and you're now trying to get out
of it. The darkness is already inside you, and
getting it out will be hard, but if you try,
maybe one day you can be who you want to be
again. Don't give in!!!

Please rate ^^

What kind of dark person are you?

Knitting Blog

Today, Dr. B. mentions a study on knitting blogs. She says, that blogs are THE media for women. Interesting!

A bad day again

I should have gone to My Department today, I need a copy of a certain article. Instead, I spent the day in bed, having the flu and the usual back pain.

Then, BitchColleague called me. I thought she wanted to chat and be friends again, but she only wanted V's phone number. She just hung up after I gave it to her. I hate her. She always talks to me as we were real friends when we see each other at My Department. But were not and I hate her for being a dishonest bitch.

I hate V too. She fucks My Mr. Perfect.

Well, just another bad day.

Geek Test

Just did the GEEK TEST. Got 25.6%. It is way better that that list which profgrrl posted. I would get even fewer points than she does, but I don't want to have experienced things like "survived an accident that I shouldn't have survived". In this respect, I love my boring life!

Why always me? I couldn't move at all for two days. My back was hurting. I really felt like dying when I had to get out of bed into the bathroom.

And now? My head aches and my nose is running.

Is this ever going to stop?!?

Bach 1007

Today I played Bach's Cello suite no 1, Prelude. I've piced up cello playing two years ago. I thought I'm gonna do this right for fun, but now I feel like I'm really going to make it. Somehow I do play the cello, I play real pieces of music! :-)

Academic Girl?

profgrrl suggests to take the What Kind Of Girl Are You test. It was fun, but they didn't mix up the questions. The first one always gives points to ''Academic Girl'' etc, so you can easily cheat.

I'm only a half academic girl... I have no car, but I can talk about my thesis for hours.


After reading several blogs for a while, I got addicted.
