I so do not want to go to work today! Especially since I wont be able to relax when I get home. Have that fricking paper to work on. Meh. And meeting with Lea tomorrow morning to do more work, and I suspect we will be at college all day to get it "almost-finished". Urgh, I want to have a few days off! But *sighs* that wont happen till after the 16th..
Look at this:
deadline for project/paper: December 5th
Interaction exam: December 10th
Exam on the project: December 16th
Well, off to work.

Right, just a quickie before I go back to work on the paper.. ;-)
I'm not really stressed yet... just kinda..urgh. I want this to get over with. And soon it will be. It's weird to think about that in just under three weeks it'll ALL be over! No more school! Too weird.
Here's something that well...I guess you can just shrug and then laugh at the Americans..
Majestic haggis of the glens proves elusive for US tourists
As government statisticians reported the number of North Americans visiting Scotland fell from 606,000 in 1998 to 504,000 last year, the haggis manufacturers Hall's of Broxburn revealed evidence of the misconceptions from an online survey.
The poll of 1,000 US visitors to Scotland found 33% thought haggis was an animal; 23% said they came to Scotland believing they could catch one.
It does make me worry.. I hope my sister's boyfriend isn't umm well..a statistic. Heh!
Thanks to Chris for that one! :-D Efharisto, kalos.
Right, back to work. :-(

Life is weird. It's a rocky road. It's a blessing and a curse, I don't know which. All I know is that it confuses me. That annoys me. I don't like being confused. I want to know what's up and what's down.
Shut up and dance!!! Can't you hear the music?? Turn it up, turn it down, turn it on, turn it off. It's the tune of life, you can't turn it off, so shut up. And dance!

Just stumbled upon something. This is odd. I'm not entirely sure whether it's a joke or not. First chewing gum, now this?? Banning somethng that takes place in the privacy of people's homes.. Ummm...
In other news.. Uhh. Nevermind that. It's a grey and foggy day. Have I mentioned before that I hate November? :-p
A week from the actual deadline for our paper/project and we are halfway through the paper. So we have to get a LOT done this weekend. Tonight I should I should get some kind of protottype of the website online.. if I can make it work. Heh! Which reminds me I should find and download that editor that Dan uses. Or a trial version anyway.. It works kinda like Firstpage. Except for the fact that I don't like that, but this other one, UltraEdit, seems much better.
Hopefully I'll be able to get a bit done on my own website sometime this weekend. Here's to optimism! ;-D I have a few ideas that I want to do. Ah well, let's see what happens..
Our instructor is the weirdest person! She came up to us and asked if we had one of the others' phone number and I did on my mobile, so I found it and gave it to her, showing the number. I thought she were going to write down the number, but (without asking!!) she called her! I was dumbfounded! I mean..that was so weird! So.. I still don't know what to think. She's just so weird. And Lea and I just looked at each other like: "what the hell??" Blimey!

Well, I'm damn proud of myself tonight. I've gotten quite a bit of work done today, so..go me! :-D
Which I had to aswell, cos yesterday I got in so damn late that I couldn't be bothered with any brain activities extending beyond cooking dinner. So instead I decorated the place for Christmas. A couple of days early since I wasn't supposed to do that till on Sunday. But I'll probably be glad I don't have to do it on Sunday seeing as we'll probably still be needing to get a loooot of work done. Cos we have given ourselves a deadline which is Monday so we have plenty of time to revise the paper.
I don't know when I'm supposed to get the site done, but I'm bent on doing it myself. It would be kinda saying "I can't do this" *whining*. And we can't have that, no no no! So if that means having to lose sleep over it...so be it, Jedi. ;-)
Anyway, so now my place is full of glittery hearts and globes and santas and hearts and some really gorgeous tearshaped glass decorations I bought in London. And a nifty pink star that's actually meant to go on a Christmas tree, at the top, but since I don't have a tree, it's sitting on a shelf being all pink and happy. ;-D Heh! And I found my santa hat, which is really cool with sequines and a broad "fur" rim.
Distance makes the heart grow fonder. Oh aint that the truth. But, gawd, it's tough! I wish we didn't have to be apart like this. But hopefully that will change soon. Ish. Soonish. Just have to be happy about every moment together and.. the longer we are apart, the closer we are to being together again. Happy thoughts. Always look at the bright side of life. Even when it's tough and unfair.
It's been really really foggy here today. Usually there's at least a couple of hours during the day where you don't have to have the lights on, even at this awful dark time of year. But not so today. So that's a bit depressing. If only it'd snow. Atleast then it'd be all pretty outside. But there's no signs of snow for the foreseeable future. Would be nice if we could have a white Christmas. ut even better if there were snow for New Year's when both T and Henry's David will be here. I wonder if David's ever experienced a white winter..?
Oh will you just look at me yapping away here! :-p
How about publicly displaying your fights with your significant other for the whole world to see? Take a look at what this guy and his girlfriend have argued about. Hard to believe that they are still together, huh?
I'm considering how to get time to make my electronic Christmas cards this year.. seems like I haven't really got the time for it. But heck no! I want to do it. Lift my spirit it will. And hopefully make others happy too..a bit at least.
Here's something I think is kinda cool: S C R I B B L E R. Cheers to Kudos for that one! :-)

I keep forgetting this cute postcard that I found at the Odeon in Edinburgh:
It's called "Jenny, Rick and Junior" and it's by Sarah Etherington @ www.yellowtrampoline.com
Ain't it just adorable?? They look like, people like, yanno? ;-)

Back from London. I'm completely knackered from getting up at 3:00 this morning. That totally sucks. And when I go home there was a messge from Lea saying that the part of our paper that we had sent to our instructor on Thursday wasn't OK, so we'll have to do a substantial amount of rewriting. Which sucks too, because that is only a third of the pages we are supposed to hand in and we haven't written more than that.. So umm... I guess now we are stressed... Yikes.
But we'll make it. Somehow you always do. Even if it does mean working through a whole night. Meh.
Apart from the rain that had decided to descend upon London pretty much all the time I was there, it was a very nice stay. The LOTR exhibition at the Science Museum was great. Even if one is only mildly ecstatic about all things LOTR. ;-) You get a nice view of how they made the costumes and the prostetics. One of them took almost 12 hours to put on. Imagine that! There was a small film about that and they had filmed how the guy fell asleep in the makeup chair. No wonder. LOL!
After we had been to the Science Museum we went to see Harrod's. Mainly because I wanted to tkae pictures of it for my mum. But since it was during the day, the Christmas lights weren't on..so that wasn't fun.. We did go inside for a bit, but it was packed with people and everything cost a fortune. Even the smallest tube of chocolate pastils cost like Â£6! So.. bah!
And we went by Harvey Nichol's too and there were some protesters outside, protesting against HN's use of animal fur. I'm glad I wasn't wearing my new coat with red rabbit fur on it. Blimey! They would probably have attacked me! Even if the police were there!
Yesterday we went to see Matrix: Revolutions. What a complete and utter disappointment. Some parts were OK, but a LOT of it was just so boring, i damn near fell asleep. The year of the Matrix?? I don't think so. So, if you haven't seen it yet.. wait for rentals.
I talked to my sister today. She's coming back to Denmark in 3 weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing her, but I can understand her fully that she doesn't want to go back to Denmark. Do I ever. *sighs*

I don't remember where I found this..but it's food for thought...
The Rules of Standing in Line
Some essential truths about the mind of the involuntary idler:
1. Unoccupied time feels longer than occupied time.
2. "First contact" with a service provider (for instance, checking in with a host in a crowded restaurant) makes people who are waiting feel better, even if it gets them no closer to their goal.
3. Human beings have a natural fear of being forgotten.
4. Anxiety makes a wait seem longer.
5. Any unexplained event or circumstance increases anxiety.
6. Perceived unfairness makes waiting seem longer.
7. Waiting alone is worse than waiting with one or more companions.
8. The greater the ratio od the patron's personal wealth to the value of the service, the more impatient he/she will be. (In other words, the rich won't wait around for just anything.)
9. An unexpected wait feels longer.
Have a good weekend! :-D

Urgh. I'm so smegging tired! I couldn't fall asleep last night and I had to get up at 6:00 this morning. So I guess I only got like 4.5 hours sleep. That just isn't enough! Especially since I've got loads to do today before going to London. And god only knows when I'll get to bed tonight. I land at about 23:30, but that's UK time, and they are an hour behind, so for me that will be 00:30.. And then I have to wait for my luggage.. which last time took almost an hour! And then the ride to the hotel and.. I wanna sleep right now. I'm getting tired just by thinking about it.
Oh well. My mum said: "well, I don't fell sorry for you, you are doing it for love". Heh!
Ahh! Yesterday I got invited to a wedding. Two more of my friends are getting married! Well, they've been together for some seven or eight years and earlier this year they bought a house together. So it's not exactly a surprise, yet it is. ;-)
I guess we are getting to an age where we are settling down (as boring as that sounds! LOL!) and realizing what we want in life. Well, some of us. There's a calmness to finding the path you want to follow. Althought you don't know where it's leading.
Well..time to get some work done..

Just when you think you've got it, then it eludes you.. and later it comes back to haunt you. I guess that's what they call..life.
