1. Checking out restaurants for the upcoming holiday with your Beloved can be rather time-consuming if one of you is gluten-intolerant and loves spicy food, while the other's a vegan who's not too fond of various vegetables and spices.

2. Methinks I need to go clothes shopping before I leave for Australia. If I lose another couple of pounds I'll be able to hula-hoop myself out of my trousers.

3. Mmmmm... coffee.

4. Anyone ever tried cappuccino flavoured lube?

5. Guild of Motor Endurance, what's your fucking problem with putting up the results?

I'm baaaaack!

The seminar was actually pretty good fun, but we all agreed that even after two days of 'Team Player' I'm anything but. Though someone said to me that I might wanna consider working in sales, as I apparently can scare talk people into anything. I'm not sure that was a compliment.

Also, the seminars and accommodation are no longer in the scary old hotel in the middle of bloody nowhere. *pouts* Granted, it was a bit like you were suddenly in 'The Shining', but once you got used to that, it had a certain creepy charm.

And I might have banged up the rental car a bit. Oops.

How is everyone?

My flights are booked, payed and confirmed. I have a shiny new passport including a shiny 'only a mother could love that' picture. I have... uhm, I'm working on the travel insurance. And I need to buy a suitcase. But anyway.

The living dead girl is going to Australia in November! :D

[ profile] m_l_h, any tips for me?

Not only will that be my first holiday outside of Europe and the UK but also my first long distance flight. Could be interesting.

Dear F'list,

I'm off to the woods now, coming back on Tuesday evening. With some luck I might even refrain from slaughtering people with an axe while I'm there.

Now, be good girls!

Hm, random nose bleeds. Haven't had those in a while.

It's rather annoying, but quite spectacular and entertains the colleagues. 

I reckon it would be even more entertaining if I start staggering around, moaning, and wailing 'BRAAAAAAAAIIIIINS!!!' every now and then. I shall do that next time the blood suddenly starts dripping down my face.

Why me?!

Do you know those days where you wake up and think: "Now I understand why some people suddenly decide to grab a gun and start shooting family, friends and co-workers." ?

No? Be grateful, you probably have a much better job than me.

I knew it was a high-stress job when they hired me, but over the last months things have gotten completely out of hand. It is like war, but without the fun shooting. No wonder we started to fall apart. Some people quit, others had to be treated for burn-out syndrome. The remaining colleagues started to fight a lot (including me) or be rude to our just-a-notch-above-braindead clients (including me). Some even started to threaten people and became violent (well... that was only me, to be honest). Most of us have either a sleep disorder or a nervous tick by now.

In my free-time I'm packing boxes because I'm gonna move in two weeks and I'm about to find out if you can skip sleeping altogether if you just get enough caffeine into your system.

Oh-kay... sorry for the rant, but I needed to get that out.

I'm gonna be a good girl now. I'll just grab a beer and something to eat, start to watch the lastest NCIS episode and shut up.

Waddaya know? I had my first migrane attack in... hmm... 8 months or so.

Started yesterday with a light headache in the early evening and around midnight I was praying for some maniac to storm into my bedroom and shoot me in the head. Or a piano to fall on my head. Or some axe murderer to decapitate me.

Thankfully the migrane has subsided by now, leaving me merely feeling very hung over. I usually don't have a problem with hangovers, but getting one without having all the fun first (drinking, partying, sacrificing virgins) seems unfair.

Plus now I'm all out off painkillers, since I ate everything remotely pill shaped I could find within the last 24 hours.

OK, off to take a shower now. And afterwards probably trying if a few eppies of Top Gear and massive amounts of caffine will make me feel a bit better.

Remember kids: When in danger, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout!

It's a little strange, it's been raining for almost a week straight now but somehow I don't mind.

Met my fave co-worker for lunch today. It was really good seeing her, she's off work for over two weeks now and I really missed her. Soon she'll be gone on maternal leave... work will not be the same without her.

My old laptop died on me a week ago. Bought a new one and I really like it, but the old laptop took one of my recent stories with it and that bothers me, as I worked quite hard on that one. Thankfully I had most of my other stuff (including my writing) stored on a external data station.

Well, so much for now.

Good luck and good night y'all!
