Current faves

And another new post, wow! ; )

These are my favourite songs at the moment:

Over my head by The Fray
Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol
U & UR Hand by Pink
Totally Alright by Ian O’Brien-Docker
Fill my little world by The Feeling
I don’t need a man by The Pussycat Dolls
Hurt by Christina Aguilera
Crystal Ball by Keane

Whatever happened to the formatting buttons? I know I posted a while ago that they are now available when you're using Blogger with Opera browser. But they're gone again. Strange.

P.S. Has anybody tested Blogger beta? I tried to log in to it once but either it didn't work or I was too stupid to see the new features.


Didn’t go to work today cos my stomach isn’t quite okay. Have no idea why. Hope it goes away soon. Tomorrow is a holiday and I’ll meet my landlady and get the keys to my apartment. Did I ever mention the apartment? Don’t think so. So, yes, I found one. As I haven’t got any furniture, I can’t move in yet. I spent the past few weekends at furniture shops picking out things. It takes about 6 weeks for them to be delivered. Hope it won’t snow early this year cos then I’ll be having real problems driving to work. October was way too warm here. On Thursday last week it was 25 degrees. My colleagues and I went out for lunch and sat outside to eat. I’m still getting along well with everybody at work. And today is the last day of my 6 months trial period or whatever you call that. But that’s NOT the reason I’m not feeling well. But I so need a couple of days off. I just don’t know when to take them cos we have a huge project in November, a study my bosses have to present on the 21th. We’re getting the data next Monday. And I still haven’t been able to discuss this year’s Christmas presents list with my bosses. Wanted to do that today. Argh. I know, there’s still Thursday and Friday, but one of my bosses won’t be in the office on these days. Sigh. Sorry, I’m babbling.

Anyway, just wanted to say I’ve been busy and therefore haven’t been on the computer very often. (And I'm very sorry for not having read all my favourite blogs lately!) I hate my computer anyway. Stopped loving it when I destroyed all my files by formatting the hard drive. I want to get DSL in my flat but before that, I think I’ll have to let my colleagues look at my system. And buy a DVD (writer) drive because none of my drives is working. I can’t even watch the films a friend copied for me. So annoying. Okay, rambling again. Not interesting. See you, bye!

How disappointing

You Scored 50% Correct

You are a solid child of the 80s
You'd never confuse Tiffany from Debbie
And while you may not know Prince's first #1 hit
You know every word to Little Red Corvette

This can't be true. I grew up with 80s music and work in a company that has to do with music. Damn. I wish these tests would tell you the correct answers after you've completed them.

I went to the movies for the first time in months and what did I see as I rode (?) up the elevator to the 2nd floor (where the theatres are in my movie theatre of choice)? An oversized poster of Christian Bale’s face staring at me! It was an advertisement for his new film The Prestige. I hadn’t expected to see that and was annoyed that the cardboard thingy only said “Coming Soon”. The other 2 sides of the cardboard thingy showed Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johannson, BTW. Excellent cast, and good director (Christopher Nolan from Batman Begins). So when I was on the internet later I checked the release dates for the film. It opens in the UK in November, but I have to wait until January to see it here in Germany. That sucks. What also sucks is that the film’s website is programmed in Flash so I couldn’t enter it. I hate Flash pages.

As to the film I went to see last weekend, it was Deutschland: Ein Sommermärchen (Germany: A summer fairy tale), a documentary about our national soccer team at the world cup held here this summer. Good film. Funny interviews with semi-intelligent players. Main problem for me: too many songs by pseudo-religious German singer Xavier Naidoo, whom I can't stand.
