Marjolein and i went to see Wrath of he Titans in 3D. Quite awesome! Good movie. Very fast pace, lots of action in a phantasy setting. No guns, just muscle and magic :-)

The seminar up shit creek

I attended the R&D seminar from my work we had up shit creek today. The hotel was very good though. It was a big hotel. I don't understand why there is such a big hotel up shit creek. It was organised well I have to say. Cookies and choccies, tea and coffee and water and soft drinks for grabs. Lunch was a very good buffet. I'll gladly have our next R&D day here!

The first presentation hitting off.

The view. Welcome to Shit creek.

During the lunch break we received the most important bits of equipment for our upcoming ski-trip to Austria. The most important ones being these wristbands which mean: Free booze in your hotel till 23:00. And also other drinks and cake etc etc ;-)

This was the other important item: The skiing jacket. yeah, it's orange this year. Zell am see is going to be VERY orange in 1 week...

The plumbing

My upstairs neighbour called a plumber because she heard bubbling sounds. The plumber asked for me (being the occupant of the bottom floor apartment) to be home as well. Sure enough he came to have a look at the main drain.

It would only take an hour but then 1 hour became 2 and then they needed to go in with a camera and 2 became 3 and 3 became 4. Even the sewer outside was opened to check stuff. The plumber had a real hard time putting a finger on the cause until my neighbour and him communicated a bit more or better or whatever but apparently she has 2 drains coming together in 1, too small, pipe. Yeah, no shit that it bubbles, Sherlock!

I worked home for the rest of the day. I only had mind numbing translation work to do.

Outside a pigeon peacefully walked past, looking for a bit to eat. Until some cow with a noisy suitcase came along and scared it away. She nearly scared me away too!

I noticed that suddenly my all the leaves on my rose have opened. Nice :-)

Saw this while waiting for the tram. It's awful. 15 euros. It looks it!

Do you speak it?

Very private party?

A parcel arrived for me at work! I wonder, what would it be?!

Nothing much happened today. I worked from home. My ribs are a fair bit better so at least I can sleep normal again. I improvised my dinner tonight. Food-improvising is very difficult for me. I was rewarded with a great tasting meal with lots of veggies. I know at least 1 person who'll be proud of me for eating so many veggies ;-)

PS: I had to use all the potatoes otherwise there would be too few left for a meal and I knew I'd throw them away eventually. So yeah, OK, it's a bit heavy on the patato-side. Sue me :-P

The happy plant

The plants in my little urban-micro-garden are starting to bloom again. Awesome!

My druid went back to his birth grounds, looking over the planes of Mulgore. It's always quiet here.

Marjolein came over and I made us a vietnamese chicken salad. Was quite nice.
