Note to self 27/2005

Don't start making a map (even a simple one!) less than 4 hours before you want to go to sleep.

Living up to my name

Yes, I'm still alive, just busy planning still secret future adventures (and running mundane errands, but that doesn't sound nearly as exciting).

Funny, the last time I was in this serious planning mode was probably in May 2004. I've missed it! (And my room is a mess, but then that's not really unusual, I just have an excuse now.

Pa hvala skušnjavki Irki, ki je menda prva predlagala tole topsikret zadevo. ;)

Random finds

For reasons not to be disclosed, I was looking for a picture of these two:



And then I wandered off into cyberspace (OK, so it was the first result on Google) and found this cute little site - muppets.com.

I'm feeling very photographic today

I did this last year. See what happens now:

From Blogger Dashboard:
Ask your readers to think of three photos they'd like to see posted to your blog. (Things around your house or whatever.) When you have enough requests, post them!
Well?

Well?

Pa saj ni res... #2

No, danes sem se med letanjem med zdravnico in laboratorijem polastila tudi t.i. vpisne mape, ki je letos na FF pravzaprav potrdilo o plačilu vpisnine in dva pildka. Zdaj sem se doma lotila elektronskega vpisa. To mi sicer ni uspelo, kajti
VAŠ VPISNI LIST ŠE NI PRIPRAVLJEN ALI PA JE ŽE OBDELAN S STRANI REFERATA ŠOLE. OBRNITE SE NA REFERAT ŠOLE!
OK, mislim, da je problem, ker grem na izredno podaljšanje absolventa, tako da bom to jutri reševala. Sem pa tudi videla, katere podatke o meni imajo zabeležene (poleg ocen):
IZOBRAZBA KANDIDATA OB PRVEM VPISU
KONČANA SREDNJA ŠOLA

Naziv šole: Sednja naravoslovna šola Ljubljana
Program : Gimnazije
Občina šole: Ljubljana
Država šole: Slovenija
Leto izdaje zaključnega spričevala: 1999
Uspeh v zadnjem letniku: odlično
Število točk pri maturi: 5
Zanimivo. S petimi točkami sem maturirala na šoli, ki je že 15 let ni več.

Auauau!

Dohtar ob desetih. Še dobr. Au!

UPDATE 15:46 Ah, pa je bolš. :)

Njuejdž #19 - ker si ga upam pisati le še redko

Torej dobre stvari zadnje čase...

• da so se po precejšnjem zapletu glede Tednika stvari prav lepo uredile same od sebe
• prijatelji, ki jim lahko zaupaš čisto vse (tole gre lahko kar naravnost v Best of Njuejdž)
• več trenutkov, ko pokažem, da imam hrbtenico
• fine kopeli
• planiranje (nečesa, ki se čisto mogoče sploh ne bo zgodilo)
• novo krilo & bluza
• hecna navodila za pripravo čaja, ki sem ga dobila s Šri Lanke

Potem mi pa zmanjka štofa. :(

Finska #425456

Domnevni virus so odkrili v severnem finskem mestu Oulu, zdaj pa potekajo raziskave, ki bodo čez tri tedne pokazale, ali gre res za virus ptičje gripe.
*gulp*

Bom pa severne jelenčke jedla...

How to give BeeBee a heart attack

You drug her mouse (of the computer variety, not rodent) so it gets all temperamental and only clicks when it wants to. Of course for a long time BeeBee doesn't realise it's just the mouse that's gone all wonky, and for some reason she can't even reboot the silly computer, so she has painful visions of a computerless weekend.

And then BeeBee, who used to be a blonde, remembers that her computer has this funny little feature, called keyboard, that can even be used for other things than typing (who would've thunk!). And suddenly the computer is alive and well again and there's hope for BeeBee!

Chaos

Photo Friday's challenge for this week is "chaos":

Finland #9372649

It feels very real now. It didn't, when I called to inquire about flight prices. I wonder if signing all the paperwork on Monday will make it more real. But for now, this book is real. :)

(I also wanted to buy a Finnish - English / English - Finnish dictionary, but no luck. Oh well, will look online.)

*bounce* (yes, still)

Every guest has to leave some time, so I've kicked Irka and Hoohoo off this blog. I know that deep down, Irka wants her own blog, while Hoohoo should stop procrastinating. I mean really! :)

I'm back to being queen of my castle around here. I guess I can now walk around the blog naked, leave the dishes undone, drink milk straight out of the carton and scratch my balls adjust my bra while I'm at it. OK, slight inconsistency there - why adjust my bra when I'm already naked? Hmm. Oh, right, I can be inconsistent, too. :D

Kako smo domači!

Pečem ingverjeve kekse in razmišljam, kakšne opravke bi si omislila v mestu, saj vreme gleda prav nenavadno prijazno.

Bratko

Ahja, bratje so včasih tudi fajn. Sploh ko se židane volje prikažejo na kratek obisk in v vsem svojem perfekcionizmu pohvalijo tvoje delo. Vsekakor malo ublažijo brezvezno travmiranje. :)

To mor'te vidit' - Tineta Strelo, namrec

  • preplavanjem Temenice.
Pripravite se NA SMEH!!!

Ne samo dober, SUPER je.

*bounce* *boing*

What's going on with me?! I'm feeling all bouncy and hyperactive. It started yesterday and I thought it would go away by now, but no, still very much here. So much so, that I've decided to walk through town despite the rain and do all the stuff I've been avoiding doing for several days now AND some PR-related stuff.

And just in case you were wondering, it costs about €750 to get me from Ljubljana to Middle Of Nowhere, Finland, and back 6 months later. That includes Flights (+ tax), trains and buses. Yay for the European Commission who's paying. ;)

Only Jane (Austen) knows how to do it

To put such a beauty into English. Have just read Persuasion. A very simple but such a nice book.

Some quotes, which are so true, to share with you.

I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own, than when you almost broke it eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone I think and plan. – Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? (Austen, 1992, p. 234)

Was it unpardonable to think it worth my while to come? And to arrive with some degree of hope? You were single. It was possible that you might retain the feelings of the past, as I did; and one encouragement happend to be mine. I could never doubt that you would be loved and sought by others, but I knew to a certainty that you had refused one man at least, of better pretensions than myself: and I vould not help often saying, Was this for me? (Austen, 1992, p. 241)

Good God! He cried.You would! It is not that I did not think of it, or desire it, as what could alone crown all my other success. But I was proud, too proud to ask again. I did not understand you. I shut my eyes, and would not understand you, or do you justice. This is a recollection which ought to make me forgive every one sooner than myself. Six years of separation and suffering might have been spared. It is a sort of pain, too, which is new to me. I have been used to the gratification of believing myself to earn every blessing that I enjoyed. I have valued myself on honourable toils and just rewards. Like other great men under reverses. He added with a smile. I must endeveaour to subdue my mind to my fortune. I must learn to brook being happier than I deserve. (Austen, 1992, str. 244−245)

Murphy's law

Ugh, the one time I change the template slightly and don't c&p the code into a separate file, it goes bonkers. Sheesh! OK, have backup from July, let's try...

UPDATE: Phew! Just have to add one link now. And make a backup copy! I think it's got to do with blogger's recent publishing problems (or is that just me?) so if there are two sidebars one after another tomorrow... Well, I'll deal with that then.

Kaj vse se najde na forumu

probably not office safe

Pa najbrž pritiče "Certain people better not look" opozorilo, sploh pri "Vacuum disasters".

Ahja...

Danes je en tak brezvezen večer. Ampak menda je vse v glavi.

The result

After 17 hours, here's the result - ciabatta bread (click for larger images):



Update: recept zdaj tu!

Iz črne kronike

Časi, ko iz varnostnih razlogov otrokom v vrtcu pri kosilu niso privoščili nožev in so si morali malčki pomagati samo z žlicami, so mimo. Najnovejše raziskave so pokazale, da so tudi žlice lahko smrtno nevarne.

Ljubljanska blogerka, znana kot BeeBee, 24, je v zgodnjih jutranjih urah nadaljevala s prejšnji dan začeto pripravo italijanskega kruha, ki se v trgovinah prodaja pod barbarskim imenom 'copata'. V zaključni fazi pa je prišlo do tragične nesreče. BeeBee je za odstranjevanje lepljivega testa s svojih prstov uporabila žlico, ki se je izkazala za nevarno orožje. Temeljito strganje rok je pripeljalo do prav nesramne vreznine, ki je od žlice ne bi pričakovali. Najnovejši tip hladnega orožja zdaj zavrženo leži v kuhinjskem koritu in ne kaže nikakršnega obžalovanja za svoje dejanje.

Postcards #13

This one came from Cambodia today. It only took 4 days!

Pa saj ni res...

Na Filofaksu se temu reče elektronski vpis:
Vnos vpisnih podatkov bo potekal elektronsko, preko internetne strani Študentskega informacijskega sistema.

Postopek vpisa:

1. V sobi 1 morate plačati vpisnino in dvigniti vpisno mapo z obrazci.
2. Vnos podatkov v elektronski vpisni list lahko opravite v računalniških učilnicah (013, 04) ali doma, preko spletnih strani Študentskega informacijskega sistema. Vpisni list morate tudi natisniti in podpisati (iztis je vedno možen tudi v omenjenih računalniških učilnicah). Za to boste potrebovali vaše obstoječe geslo in uporabniško ime za vstop v študentski informacijski sistem.
4. Po opravljenem postopku vnosa v vpisni list in tiskanja, se vpišete v vpisni sobi 15, kamor morate prinesti:
- indeks,
- osebno izkaznico,
- študentsko izkaznico,
- iztisnjen vpisni list in mapo
Tu vam bomo iztisnili in potrdili “potrdila o vpisu“, potrdili kartonček za LPP in po potrebi „potrdila o opravljenih izpitih“ ter izdali nalepko za študentsko izkaznico.

Scary stuff #2

I did it again! It's my left hip this time, and I managed it with a lot less grace - I just stumbled instead of flying. Hurts the same. Ow.

One (Certain people better not look #3)

Photo Friday's challenge for this week is 'one':

Back yet again!

For a little longer this time. I'm letting Irka and Hoohoo play on MSCB for a while more, seeing as I'm not sure I'll be able to get up tomorrow after tonight's badminton.

Should be more creative ...

... I suppose. I asked B. to blog again because I had some themes I would like to write about on my mind. The problem is that it wasnt enough time for that so far. In fact I havent been productive at all. At least not in this matter.

Was thinking about following subjects:
  • men to women - is friendship possible at all?
  • who are/were people who fulfill/ed my life,
  • what is it all about,
  • why British produce such nice peaces of work as Foyle's War is,
  • and so on and so on ...

oh yes, and also a very interesting question:
TO BLOG OR NOT TO BLOG?

Any suggestions?

The doctor is IN!


Seems I've been appointed the solver of all problems yet again. I'll take the next in line!

And please, no pushing.

Another day has almost gone by

Had many plans for today but not all of them have come true. Reasons for that are pretty simple: it was another day when you do a lot of things but nothing particularly. Like you go to a shop, to an optician, to a petdoctor, you buy a new network card (like it would help - it doesnt), you try to print (try some other time), you dont even find MS Office (brother, where are u??) and you get a visit (they are still congratulating u for your thesis - thank u - I got a lovely present). You pick up your brother and drive him home safely.

And now its nearly midnight. Time to call your dearest one.

Sleep well ...

Ja, ja, saj grem!

Človek mora pred odhodom pospraviti in glej ga, zlomka, novi zabavni prevodi gmaila v slovenščino:
Ni nove pošte! Če se Vam bere, poglejte Googlove novice.
Juhu, tukaj ni vsiljene pošte!
Bodite mi v cvetju! :)

Let the paper war begin ...

Holidays are over. Im back to saddle, in front of my (ancient&from-mum-borrowed)laptop and in the middle of all the paper that has been laying around my room since June: application for scholarship (Ziga, thank you, for your kindness), application for postgraduated study (FGG, there I come), application for summer job/not really internship, CV form (should be updated), articles that should be written ...

... and all the other stuff which is _______________ (you are welcome to enter your own description) .

The worst matter on agenda waiting for me: have to find a decent 1-room appartment in Ljubljana to share with my mate. Any suggestions?

Goodbye yet again

Seeing as I'm off tomorrow afternoon again, I'm letting Irka and Hoohoo entertain you until Thursday or Friday (not sure yet when I'm coming back exactly).

Štorija o mojih čevljih ...

... se nadaljuje. Včeraj so mi mati sporočili, da so moje superge, stare spoštljivih 12 let, razpadle.

To pa niso superge kar tako. So prve z znamko, kupljene v 6. razredu OŠ. Uporabljene v vse mogoče namene: telovadba, tek, kolo, hoja, delo na vrtu ...

Bile so res enkratne in vdane. Pa tako fine. In prav nič posebne. Za takrat dragih 6 kilositnih, danes pa za ta denar dobiš ravno ene hišne copate, za poštene superge se pa lahko pod nosom obrišeš.

SLAVA JIM!!!

p.s.: še slikovna ponazoritev ...

Forum error message :)

Looks like we're breaking up. It's not you; it's me. I may be ready to make a commitment in a little while. Please try again later.

Ah, that's better

Let the holidays begin!

Certain people better not look #2


Povzetek #4

Tale se nanaša na Bol na Braču:

• Hec je iti na morje s sedmimi ljudmi, od katerih jih pet v bistvu ne poznaš. :)
• čas, ki smo ga trije geografi porabili za 2,5 km dolgo pot v hrib od samostana Blaca do ceste: 20 minut, ob moji in Irkini pevski spremljavi (bliskanje za ritjo in terenskovadbeni trening delata čudeže)
• število spečenih palačink: okrog 60 (v stokilskih ponvah, da sem imela naslednji dan musklfibr)
• dolžina zgodovinskega epa, ki smo ga posneli nekega vetrovnega popoldneva: brez špic menda dve minuti
• število kupljenih razglednic: 2, od tega napisanih: 1 in poslanih: 0 (shame on me!)
• število novih nanožnih prstanov: 2

Back again!

Got home an hour and a half ago. Tired. Tanned. Very sleepy. Update tomorrow with (maybe) some pictures and scans of the postcards I received while I was gone. But it's a busy day tomorrow, so we'll see.

Ah, my own bed, here I come!

By the way, it's freezing here, wtf?!

Photo speaks louder than words


The famous, four-point lock-down hug

Note how all four hands and even legs are busy with occupying the body of the partner, making it almost impossible for him/her to get away. And if she/he does, you can always squeeze his balls or her tits, disabeling any mutiny. Yes my friends, THIS is what makes a happy family.

I wanna hold your hand...

Ziher ste jih že opazili. Ljudi, ki se objemajo namreč. Pa saj, boste rekli, to je pa ja lepo, all we need is love etc. Jaz nisem takega mnenja. Po mojem imaš dve obliki objemanja. Na eni strani je objemanje, ki je fajn in kjut in tko, po drugi strani pa imaš patološko objemanje in stiskanje. Patološko objemanje in stiskanje se še posebej dobro vidi poleti, ko se temperature povzpnejo nad 30 stopinj in perspiracijski sistem dela na polno, določeni osebki pa hodijo okrog kot da so zlepljeni skupaj. Siamski dvojčki.

Dovolite da predstavim humoren aspekt tega fenomena.

Ne moti me to, da se objemajo, moti me razlog, zaradi katerega mislim, da to počnejo.

Povzetek v eni besedi - Lastnina.

Hecno se mi zdi, da vidiš tipa, ki žensko praktično vleče za roko po cesti oziroma da vidiš žensko, ki ima tipa priklenjenega nase, kot da bi bil nekakšen aparat za dihanje. Ali pa recimo scena, kjer hodita čisto normalno, vsak zase, potem pa takoj ko srečata nekoga, skočita v kompliciran, tritočkovni objem, iz katerega jih potem po moje rešijo šele gasilci. We love eachother! See?! Ew.

After a game of tenis...
