Happy belated knitaversary to me and @distel :)

I missed it yesterday, even though it's in my calendar! It's been 10 years of knitting for me!

Selfie, hair, mood 

Extremely tired today and zero motivation....

I blow dried my hair straight yesterday and although I love how it feels, it's not really me anymore...

We're looking for a new place to live and the Boy found one that ticked pretty much all the boxes, unfortunately they got so many requests that we can't even go see it. Damn.

Work, food 

Went 30 min over time but at least it's done. Just ordered pizza for myself because making myself something to eat right now seems veeerrry unattractive.

Work, knitting 

I have another one of those all day video conferences but this time I was smart enough to make it a home office day. Since we're conferencing without our cameras on I have managed to knit a heel flap, heel and half of a gusset of a sock by now and it means that I'm not going insane like I did last time. I can also listen better when my hands are busy.

vaccinations, doctor experience + 

:sparkles_bi: YAY for not having to talk to anyone虏 :sparkles_bi:

vaccinations, doctor experience + 

I'm waiting on confirmation but I guess I was able to book an appointment for my booster vaccination ONLINE. YAY for not having to talk to anyone.

I feel like I got really lucky with this doctor. I didn't pick her, but the one I did pick has handed over the office to her and she's been great when I went to see her and online appointments are def a plus. And they have a answering machine JUST for prescription requests and you just pick them up the next day

I just thought for a moment the telephone called itself "telephony" and thought "Me too baby, me too."

Work, sudden death 

Oh my god.

I've organized a little web conference with three speakers for this Wednesday.
I just opened my emails to find out one of them died suddenly and unexpectedly last week and oh my god.

video conferencing 

who thought that a beeping sound whenever someone joins a live event with >100 participants was a good idea!?
Can't turn it off on my side, aaaah.

Late Halloween, mystery dinner 

Friend has a habit of organizing mystery dinners around halloween and
I was cute today!

Power outage 

How convenient, the whole area just lost its power, but the stadium close by where a Champions-League game is about to start is glowing in the otherwise dark neighborhood.

Good for us: we have Hue Go portable lights that have a rechargeable battery and while our neighbors run around with flashlights and their mobile phones, we have a good amount of electric light and probably confusing everyone why our lights didn't go off


I really don't get it when people are too busy to read 2 lines of e-mail correctly and then need follow up e-mails to get it sorted.
That didn't save anyone any time.

And yes, it's always the ones making more money than you do ;)


"Hey Laura, can you do x?"
"Yes, will do!"
[30 minutes later]
"oh shoot, isn't that [coworker]s responsibility?"
"no it's mine and it's already taken care of, I will send [person] confirmation"
"great, can you send [person] confirmation?"

friends, relationships 

It's going to be great, now she only has one (actual) kid to look after.

friends, relationships 

friend: I broke up with [her boyfriend], he's moving out.

Me, internally: yeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss finallyyyyy. :blobcheerbounce: :blobrainbow: :blobcheerbounce:

Me: Oh. Okay. How are you feeling?


So yes, stole my own bike today, in broad daylight in front of a museum.

I'm also glad that the bike has it's own lock and anti-theft system because it really wasn't that hard to get it out... We basically only use the physical locks so people don't try... It has an alarm that gets louder, enough so people would rather throw the bike in a bush after a couple of meters and let it go (yes, happened before...) but we also don't want to invite people to try when there is no visible lock...
