I have just pre ordered 2 medium pizzas and 4 cokes for the guys who are here to replace some windows, i really need to stop doing that...
Damn internet. I had just decided that I wanted to learn what 'sexual objectification' was all about - I have heard the phrase a few times, and it irritates me that I didn't knew anything about it. So I decided to research it, using the internet. But the moment i started searching I lost my way and somehow I ended up at Disney Dudes' Dicks: What Your Favorite Princes Look Like Naked. It is not that I had any especially pressing need need to know about the peckers of various fictive characters. It had not much relevance to the theoretical basis of objectificaiton theory. So why did I enter that place anyway? I guess it's the basic rule zero of the web: If its is crazy as fuck, you shall click it. Fuck.
A different internet problem for me: if your hotel is going to advertise its wireless connection to the 'net, then it damn well better work. And if you are going to call it "high speed" then I think 1.5 Mbps really isn't too much to ask. Fast enough to send email and do some light surfing, right?

Really getting tired of unreliable connections - at major hotel chains in major cities - in 2014. Pretty sad that my phone has a better web connection... at 3G.

HereForTheBeer: Instead of going straight to the tax folks, I'd first have the lawyer and bookkeeper take a look at it. They'll likely know the best way to respond, citing "chapter and verse" of the code to cover your butt. Good luck.
I went there without consulting anyone first. I was also out of time. I hadn't been at home for a few days and when I got the letter the official deadline had already passed (although I'm pretty sure that the letter arrived only one or two days before the deadline). Anyway, got there and pulled a number. From a distance I could see that at my particular booth there was a comparably young woman. I thought I got lucky this time, she could just be young enough to still have a soul. My number came up, I went there, I got the coldest look ever and she used several euphemisms for "idiot" because I showed up at the wrong booth. She really went through great lengths so make me feel like shit. After two additional attempts I got a number for the right booth, from a distance I could see an insanely evil looking old hag. I felt like shooting myself at that point. Then my number came up and something magical happened: that old hag turned out to be a lovable granny! She didn't smile for the first couple of minutes but she was still lovely! She solved all my problems, explained everything and even gave me friendly advice for the future! She even fixed an unrelated issue I wasn't aware of before showing up! And in the end we both even laughed!

And that, little children, is the story of how I left the tax office with a huge smile on my face. The end.

My company finally replaced my dinosaur of a PC with a brand new i7 laptop. Drawback is the new Netnanny software blocks the whole GOG url. So sadly I can not view the GOG forums during work including my lunch hour. Also, a good majority of the websites that use facebook as a logon device I can no longer login to at work, because it is also blocked. Had to get my admin to set Chrome as my default browser. Hopefully, they relax some of these restrictions, but I doubt it.

Rum, if you want to get drunk quicker/ longer. :P
Also, it's more versatile, although you would have to buy mixers for it...

For now it's bringing my personal laptop and using the wireless, but I have a feeling they will be locking down the wireless next. I transferred to a new position, so my browsing time has been drastically reduced at work. I'll have to browse at night.

Family crap. Between my Grandma being ill and a reoccurring family problem, I'm tired. In the words of Bill Cosby, "I'm sick and tired and tired and sick!"
I'm very very scared, sitting at home with my curtains closed as the fear is too much. It's the 19th of October and it's 22 degrees Celsius where I live (in the east of Holland). I'm very very scared of the climate change right now. What we're experiencing is the result of natural fluctuations coupled with the exhaust of CO2 and methane up till the eighties. The effect of all the exhaust since then is still to come. I am very very frightened, muscles tighten and my field of vision narrows literally due to fright. Took the extra medication I got to take in time of crisis (an extra dose of the anti-psychotic I got normally to lessen the stimuli).
