I am an idiot.
Well… OK, maybe not quite an idiot, but how could I miss the Philip Glass concert the previous Friday?
Oh wait, yes, I was in the last leg of “the move from hell”, but even so…
I thought I would have the concert just after the move and so I went on
about my life and today when I came in to the office again I was all good and
ready to check out the real date for the concert and get the ticket when I saw
that it was already gone by.
Sure enough, it would have been after the move, had it gone according to plan (plus 50% off for delays), but since it got even more delayed than that I just missed it.
Now I wonder if I’ll ever get to see him play live. Rats!
Five days after moving in to the new apartment. Still eating out every day (or ordering in pizza and eating it by hand), still not able to use the kitchen (damn contractors, but the appliances are supposed to get here today and should be installed by monday so I’ll be able to store perishable foods and cook by then —joy!), still no blinds on the windows…
But at least I’ve had music since day 2 and I’ve now found the time to at least turn the laptop on and check out a few things I needed to. Obviously I couldn’t resist sending out an “I’m alive” message.
In a week or so I’m hopping to get something resembling a life going on again.
I’d post pictures of the state of the apartment, but right now that’s just much too time-consuming and I’m not all that much into horror stuff anyway.
Oh and I decided to go with TMN’s wireless broadband offering (UMTS-based) due to coverage issues in my area. So far so good, let’s see how it goes on when I get the first bill to pay.
I’m right in the middle of the renovation works in my new apartment. Will move in next Monday and obviously things are running a bit behind. Chaos.
Even so I did contribute to the latest episode of the Contrast Podcast under the theme Seas, oceans and all things marine and I thoroughly encourage you to listen. Mind you this is a recommendation based on the principle of the thing, seen as the episodes usually rock, because I haven’t listened to it yet.
When I move I’ll take some time off work to get my stuff together and so I’ll be cut off from the world (as in without connectivity at home and not coming in to the office) so I’m considering purchasing some kind of USB-based wireless broadband thingie. Right now I’m considering both the TMN and the Optimus (Kanguru) offers, but I’m not sure how well the Kanguru works with a MAC so the TMN one is looking pretty sweet at this time.
I could, of course, just give up the Internet for the next two weeks, but I’m not seeing that happening… At all.
