Scribble scribble scribble

By the end of this week I'll have written three articles in one week. Seriously, I don't know how I could do this if I also had lectures. Anyway, must finish the article that might actually make me some money (and I already have a title for it).

Oh, and I'm planning a regular theme to post once a week. Just have to decide which day.

Išče se:

Študentska izkaznica. Konkretno moja. Nazadnje videna v Foculusu včeraj zvečer. Če je ni tam (še iščejo), močno upam, da je to part of the matchmaking plan (posvečeni boste že vedeli, za kaj gre), ampak se bojim, da je to samo wishful thinking.

UPDATE @ 13:07
Študentska najdena v denarnici v enem čisto stranskem predalčku.

SloBlogMeet2k4

Se je zgodil. Vsi preživeli, slikali smo se, jaz imam slik sicer bolj malo, pa se mi jih zdajle ne da niti gledati, kar šele objavljati. Itak pa bo menda Kuki kaj več o celi stvari napisal. Pa seveda tudi vsi drugi.

Dobre novice

Danes je po težkih mukah magistriral B. od Š. V bistvu sem najbolj vesela zanjo, saj ga je, kljub temu da živita skupaj, že prav pošteno pogrešala.

Oblikovanje spletnih strani, drugič

Preživela. Pa saj ni nič težkega, veliko stvari mi je že kar znanih (hvala blogu!) ampak po mojem sem pol pozabila v pol ure. No, je pa res, da se bom z morebitno uporabo kaj tudi spomnila :)

Typical!

Just as I find the perfect e-card for S. who's feeling down today, it turns out you have to be a Yahoo! Greetings member to be able to send it. Well, thanks a lot.

Rant!

This post on The Glory of Carniola got un unbelievable number of narrow-minded comments.

They are of four kinds:
1. The picture was not taken in Slovenia (I'm guessing it was Croatia), and Michael failed to mention that. Therefore the non-Slovenes who read his blog, could, *gasp*, think something so outrageously savage and Balkan happened in Slovenia.
2. Michael's blog's subtitle is "Life in Slovenia", so he should never ever in his wildest dreams post anything that is not in direct connection with Slovenia.
3. Chill, dudes!
4. Other.

FFS, it's his blog! He can post whatever he wants, he could even say the picture was taken on Mars, or, God forbid, dare I say, in our fair Slovenia.

I did not see Michael's post as a demonstration of how things are done at a certain place, but merely the way they are done. Location is not important, although knowing this part of Europe does make it funnier. And I think that was Michael's intention.

Face it, Slovenia's recent history happened, like it or not. We might as well make the best of it (i.e. laugh about it). And understanding ex-Yu languages is a bonus that we got with it.

And would an "outsider" think any less of Slovenia if the situation in the picture happened in Slovenia? Doubt it. Might find in quirky, but not bad.

(Blogger ate a long post I had written about this, so I might be updating this post as I remember more of the lost one.)

Oblikovanje spletnih strani

E.

V ponedeljek je moja prijateljica A. iz gimnazije rodila 4,07 kg težko punčko. Se mi kar smeji. :)))))))

Useless post about many things

1) How should a roll of toilet paper be placed on the holder? With the loose end over the roll or behind it? Personally I prefer it over the roll.

2) I sprained my ankle twice in Dalmatia. First time was on the first day, on the boat. Second time was on the last day in Split, when the old injury was almost helaed. I was completely sober both times. I was also stung by a wasp, on the second day during breakfast. It hurt like hell.

3) Ko spim, imam najraje, če je okno na stežaj odprto, jaz pa sem pokopana pod tono odej. To pomeni, da sem že pred kakšnim tednom začela spati v srednje debeli pižami in nogavicah. Komaj čakam tapravo zimo, ko bom zavita v polarno pižamo in tri odeje dihala ledeno mrzel (in od izpušnih plinov tovornjakov, ki dostavljajo blago v trgovino, onesnažen) zrak.

4) My feet are itching to travel again.

5) Še zmeraj nisem izterjala denarja od Francoza, ki mi je polomil displej na fotoaparatu.

6) Any dates for SloBlogMeet?

7) Danes grem pokasirat cekine, ki sem jih zaslužila včeraj (1000 SIT/h ha, plača je bila 1800 SIT/h :D).

8) A picture:


Late night in Hvar. The moon was red (see the red spot). Sorry for the blur - it was a windy night and we were on a boat.

9) Kupovanje hlač je zame cela mora. Sem čisto sprijaznjena z dejstvom, da bo na listku ogromna konfekcijska številka. Ampak če že imam širšo rit in stegna, še ne pomeni, da nimam oblike! Pas zaenkrat še imam, nisem se še spremenila v valj. Hrmph.

10) I've never had to correct a post so many times after publishing it.
