Me!

I write about things. Sometimes. Welcome to my world.

On stubbornness

(please assume all references to ‘men’ mean people) Once upon a time there was a dirt road between 2 small villages. The villages were pretty and the fields inbetween were pretty too. A man stood in the middle of the road, between the 2 villages. He was admiring the view. Another man walked along the […]

On Power – of chocolate and of people (the lost and found version)

(I was just looking though my posts and found a draft version of Wednesday’s post. I thought it was competely gone, but apparently not. Here it is.) I don’t know why I give either as much power as I do. Yesterday wasn’t a particularly spectacular day. As well as losing my halo, I also lost […]

On perceived productivity

Why is it, on some days getting out of bed counts as productive already, and others -like today- I can wash my hair, help out at Sunday school, clear and sort my kitchen, sort out a folder of certificates and ‘important’ papers, think about Christmas presents for people, decorate a pinboard, write 3 emails (one […]

On fireworks and busfares

I went to watch the advent fireworks in my town just now. They went off at 11pm. I caught the bus down and was there just in time to glance around the bargainboxes in MediaMarkt (late-night-opening tonight) and make my way to the square. The fireworks were spectacular in the sense that all fireworks are […]

On raking up old leaves

Usually people turn over new leaves, especially at the beginning of the year. I’ve decided to rake up a few of my older ‘new leaves’, the ones which have fallen by the wayside over the course of the year. Hopefully some of them will stick this time round and I’ll have a headstart on next […]

On what we say v. what they hear.

I’m too sleepy to write as much as I’d like to on this, but it’s been a theme running through several conversations this week. If what we say isn’t always what they hear, then maybe what we hear isn’t what they said…….. (/what they meant)  

On Power – of chocolate and of people

Okay. I add ‘and of Mozilla’s moodswings’ to that. My post was pretty much finished and now it’s gone. The gist of it was that I am easily swayable by external factors: things, situations, people…and chocolate. That and the fact that I spend too much time and energy trying to placate people who make life […]

On complaints, halos and air conditioning

(- or “apparently it does work” -) I have been bemoaning the state of the air conditioning unit at work for about the last 3 years; pretty much as long as I’ve been there. I don’t [think I] moan much, but when I do find something I consider worth moaning about, I’m pretty consistent. In […]
