Five things about my day: Monday 16/2/2009

1. I've been feeling kind of ickie today. Actually for the last few days, but today has been the most ickie I have felt. It's a bit like I have a flu or a bad cold coming on, but it doesn't want to go the whole hog and just 'be' a cold or the flu. It wants to be that annoying preview stage that makes you feel drowsy and achy. The worst part is that, because it's only the cusp of sick, you feel like a pansy cause your not 'really' sick.

2. The weather is quite strange today. It looks like it has been snowing most of the day, with little flakes falling softly, but not enough of them stay on the ground, they just melt so quickly. Currently it looks as though bits of the ground have been dusted in icing sugar.

I don't mind if it snows, but at least it could stay on the ground and make things look pretty and white and crisp. Not this horrible drizzly sleety stuff that just makes everything wet and annoying.

3. There is a dead cat on the floor.

Well, she's not really dead. More like dead tired from her morning of running about after paper balls, howling for attention, getting attention and then getting annoyed with the attention she has gotten. Followed by more howling, running and generally going spazmodical.

Oh wait....now she has figured out that someone is talking about her and has decided that it is much more cosy to be on my lap. Like so:


4. Husband ordered a copy of “My name is Bruce” from play.com.

Very excited about that cause as we all know Bruce Campbell is probably the greatest actor – no, greatest HUMAN BEING – of our time.

5. Lunch today was a very simple Asian style sweet corn soup with egg. One of my favourite soup recipes at the moment cause it takes literally minutes to make and only has 5 ingredients:

Mats:
3 cups water
1 cup frozen corn kernels
1 veg stock cube
4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 Egg

Method:
In a pot put in the water, frozen corn stock cube and sweet chilli sauce. Bring it to the boil.

Take it off the heat and blend it so the corn is all mushed up.

Put it back on the heat.

Beat the egg in a small cup/bowl and slowly pour it into the soup while you stir it with a fork. The egg will go all stringy and separate, but don't worry, it's suppose to look like that.

Heat for another few minutes while the egg kind of poaches in the soup.

Nom and enjoy.


And for those of you that are interested in these sorts of things:

I made this a few days ago for my sister-in-laws b'day. Simple and silly but so much fun.

25 Random things about me (Or "Procrasting on Facebork")

[This is one of those things that is being sent around on facebook, you know where you have to tag someone and then they have to complete it as well.

I was obviously a bit bored when WoW went down today]


1. I'm not going to tag anyone in this cause I'm horrible and dont care enough. Well not really, I just dont want people to feel obligated to do this sort of thing if they cant be arsed.

2. I dont believe it is going to snow today even though the forecast says it is. I'm cynical like that.

3. I play with my hair a lot.

4. I'm a vegetarian. I dont think I'm overly strict about it or that it's a very hard lifestyle to lead, but a lot people seem slightly bemused by my diet, as if I must be slowly fading away from lack of nourishment or something. I assure you I'm not.

5. I am a bit of a voyeur of homes and home decorating. If I see an open window or blind, I will have a quick peek in to see how the person living there has decorated. I also love the idea of being able to have a brief glimpse of a strangers life and to be able to relate to them (or not) based on that glimpse.

6. For some reason bees make me giggle hysterically. Especially the idea of a bee kite (thats a bee on a string) or sending someone a singular live bee in an envelope. How awesome would that be!

7. Purple is the greatest colour in the world. Anyone who thinks differently is obviously suffering from some sort of mental defection.

8. I didn't learn to drive untill I was 26 or something and now that I am not driving anymore I dont think I want to start again.

9. I have a kitten sitting on my lap right now. If I try and move the mouse she attacks the curser on the screen.

10. I'm starting to worry that my knowledge of the english language is slowly being forced out of my head as the danish language is being forced in. Sometimes I have to correct myself cause I mix up the danish and english spelling of things. I have done so about 5 times already in this little piece.

11. I like making things.

12. I love photoshopping and creating digital art works with my trusty graphics tab.

13. I am a mad wicked procrastinator. For example, right now I probably should be doing my homework. But I'm not, and I probably wont when I finish writing this. I'll probably find something else to do that will keep me from it.

14. I wont accept application requests anymore because they share too much personal information with everyone and anything. I think that Facebook itself has enough comunication options to keep one amused without having to compromise your privacy further by adding all that other junk.

15. I'm an internet addict.

16. I'm actually quite terrible at keeping in contact with people even though I dont want to be. I think it's the procrastination thing again. I tell myself "I'll email/call later" and just never get around to it. Lame excuse I know, but it's the truth.

17. I take a lot of pictures.

18. I fear/look forward to one day becoming one of those crazy old women that has a lot of pets and talks to them all.

19. Making paper cranes and doing origami in general makes me feel calm and at peace.

20. My closet is usually a massive mess. I shove stuff in most of the time and when I want to get something out a huge pile of clothes comes tumbling out with it. I tidied it a week ago and it's already back to it's normal state.

21. I used to have 2 goldfish: Sredni and Vashtar. They died. I also had an axolotl named Quetzelcoatl. He died. I dont think I should have anymore fish or amphibians.

22. I like to knit. I'm not very good at it or very fast, but I like doing it.

23. When I moved from Australia to Denmark, I condensed my worldly possessions down to 6 tubs and a backpack worth of stuff. It was actually quite liberating to let go of most of it.

24. During the second world war, a lawyer who was thought to be working for the Danish resistance, was shot right outside our bedroom window by the gestapo. There is a plaque down there on the wall commemorating him. I find that terribly interesting and sad. Sometimes I stare out the window and think about what it must have been like for the people living here at that time.

25. It still isn't snowing.
