saturday…

I’ve made a short-cut. In order to update my LJ, I write “ulj” in the address-bar in Opera and the update page appears magically(?)


What did I do today? I had another day in hell yesterday, but I turned off my computer, called my best friend, got some perspective on things and finished my book, Foucault’s Pendulum. It helped a lot. Today I started out feeling better, did three sets of my chen style taijiquan while listening to medieval pilgrim-music (I sound like a new-age idiot now… ) and I did some redecorating. I switched my computer and my stereo around, so now the stereo is next to the gigantic computer screen and the monster-computer is on the floor. (I’m a geek as well as a new-age idiot now…)

I was out of shower gel, so I went to my favourite cosmetics shop (I’m now a metrosexual, geeky, new age idiot) and bought some more shower-gel and it turns out they’re getting a new line of products named “Eav Des Bavx” containing cypress and incense, it’s a nice, slightly heavy scent, very pleasant. The tagline reads “The knights from the village Les Baux de Provence had chosen the cypress as a symbol of courage”. Having read Foucault’s pendulum which features knights templars, occultists, conspiracy theory and god knows what else, the simple idea of knights is a bit disturbing. No more mad occultists please.

Dinner was a bit of a disappointment, I had planned to overdose on garlic, but the garlic was off. I roasted chicken breasts in paprika powder, cayenne and ground ginger and made a salsa with chili and the bad garlic. I ate it with pasta. Both the chicken and the salsa was ok, but they didn’t complement properly. I should have made some nice meat-balls with insane amounts of garlic. Oh well…

One thought on “saturday…

  1. Yay! yay for Focault’s Pendulum and yay for loccitane. they have the best shaving cream I’ve tried (well, after “Tom’s of Maine”, but you don’t get that here.

    BTW, have you read ‘The Da Vinci Code’? I have the feeling that ‘Focault’s pendulum’ is the parody that predated it by 20 years or so. I haven’t read TDVC, so I don’t know…
