Snart Halloween og vi får gjester

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

I Ã¥r er det vÃ¥r tur til Ã¥ holde “juleselskapet”, men siden *kremt* noen er bortreist i julen har vi bestemt oss for en Halloween/høstfest istedenfor. Vi blir fryktelig mange, men hyggelig det.

Right Brain vs. Left Brain

what direction do you see?

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

Turen til London

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

Første dag i London sentrum og Hotell i Kensignton. Middag på hotellet og et par pils i nærheten senere. Var ganske sliten og sluknet sånn passe tidlig.

Dagen etter hos Dan var ganske morsom. Det startet med en taxi-tur som “noen” hadde sagt skulle koste 40£. Den kostet 216£. haha! Deretter var det innsjekking pÃ¥ lokalt vertshus med etterfølgende reise opp til Immo igjen. Festen var som fester flest, men det ble nok litt for mye for et par av oss ja…

Dagen etter (hjemreisedagen), besto av 2t tog til Waterloo, 30 min taxi til London City Airport og stress for å sjekke inn i tide. Rakk det med et par minutter, men siden flyet var 2t forsinket fikk vi slappet av litt på flyplassen :P

Vel hjemme 0100 og tryna mer eller mindre ned på hodeputen, og borte var jeg.

GG!

Letter from a computer Widow….

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

My Dear Husband,

I am sending you this letter via this internet communications thing, so that you will be sure to read it. Please forgive the deception, but I thought you should know what has been going on at home since your computer entered our lives TWO YEARS AGO.

The children are doing well. Tommy is seven now and is a bright, handsome boy. He has developed quite an interest in the arts. He drew a family portrait for a school project, all the figures were good, and the back of your head is very realistic. You should be very proud of him.

Little Jennifer turned three in September. She looks a lot like you did at that age. She is an attractive child and quite smart. She still remembers that you spent the whole afternoon with us on her birthday. What a grand day for Jenny, despite the fact that it was stormy and the electricity was out.

I am doing well. I went blonde about a year ago, and discovered that it really is more fun! George, I mean, Mr. Wilson the department head, has uh, taken an interest in my career and has become a good friend to us all.

I discovered that the household chores are much easier since I realized that you didn´t mind being vacuumed, but that feather dusting made you sneeze.

The house is in good shape. I had the living room painted last spring; I´m sure you noticed it. I made sure that the painters cut holes in the drop sheet so you wouldn´t be disturbed.

Well, my dear, I must be going. Uncle George, uh, Mr. Wilson, I mean, is taking us all on a ski trip and there is packing to do. I have hired a housekeeper to take care of things while we are away. She´ll keep things in order, fill your coffee cup and bring your meals to your desk, just the way you like it.

I hope you and the computer will have a lovely time while we are gone. Tommy, Jenny and I will think of you often. Try to remember us while your disks are booting.

Love,
Your Wife
