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…
