Ok, since my last entry no-one shot or defriended me, so here's a point-by-point update on me:

- Eventually I did manage to get a job. On October 25 2006 I started working for a German supermarket chain (at the head office, NOT in one of the shops!). I'm not sure I'm alowed to say exactly which one (my contract is quite strict), but I've no doubt you've already narrowed it down to two options.

- I started out as a website content manager, but since february this year I'm a copywriter/translator. This has convinced me, more than ever, that every person is in charge of his/her own live for a very large part.Collapse )

- Since about a year I also co-host a radio show. It's volunteer work, I'm not making any money, but it's really cool. more infoCollapse )

- I'm a little afraid to talk about it, because at this stage everything can still go horribly wrong, but if everything goes wel... I'll finally be moving out of my parents' house by October! The only obstacle is a certain permit I still have to get. I'll spare you the details, but the main point is: legally, I've got a right to it, only so far the people who handle the permits have turned out to be less than very intelligent. The whole thing makes me very nervous...

Well, that's about it. I've got a broadcast in a little more than an hour, so I'll leave it at this.

Subject:Oh. My. Bowie.
Mood: surprised

I have been gone from LJ for two years. I come back half expecting my account to have been erased.

Not only is my account still there: NOTHING ELSE has changed either. I can't believe that in the past two years no-one has defriended me (well, at least no-one who mattered much).

I'm not going to launch into a gigantic report on my life right now. I mean, perhaps the only reason no-one defriended me is because no-one could be bothered to, so I'm not going to get all excited. Just to be on the safe side.

Should anyone at this point look at this entry with a quizical brow thinking 'who are you again...?', here's a few hints:
- Karen, I'm the wacko who names her bicycles and talks about them as though they are real people.
- Melanie, I'm one of the few people who agrees with you that Orlando Bloom is a lousy actor.
- Anne, you were the last person to respond to my last entry (september 4 2006) encouraging me not to give up hope or start doubting my abilities. Don't know if that will ring a bell.

Subject:postal miscalculation. Oops.

Kenny, should you get a sturdy brown evelope thingy in your mail tomorrow before you get to the hospital... don't open it, yet. I thought it would take a couple of days to get there, but apparently it's as fast as a regular envelope.
So, should it reach you too early, wait until you're back from the hospital, ok?

Subject:Yes! I'm a loser!

About an hour ago I got the urge to go to the supermarket, buy something incredibly chocolaty, go back home and eat the whole package in my room with a cup of coffee.
At first this depressed me. I mean, that's the first sign of loserdom.

But then I cheered up and decided to embrace my newfound loserdom and wear it with style! So here I am, in my room, eating a whole package of... I don't know the English name for it, but it's got a lot of chocolate in it. Hey, Melanie, wanna be losers together?

2. “I see split ends are universal. Lost in space with no conditioner, eh?”

4. “I-I'm a miserable worthless hunk of slime. Here, I want you to take this crowbar and just bash my head right in.” kennyrubenis UHF (1989)

5. “I had two big accidents in my life Diego, the trolley and you... You are by far the worse.”

6. “I don't think that a person should run unless he's being chased.” hole_dweller The Faculty (1998)

8. “You go over there and Fuck 'em. We'll stay here and Masturbate. Go, go, go!”

9. “I'd be saying, "Madam, you are the victim of an 8 billion to one chance: a leaping anteater. An evolutionary mutant previously unknown to science.”

10. “I really love Rudy. He is totally enamored of me. I mean, I've had other men love me before, but not for six months in a row.”

12. “I swear to you, Ben, they've done everything humanly possible. The best plastic surgeons in the world are here, Ben. You had the best.”

13. “The simple plan is, no one in this room is going to have sex with anyone else in this room. We'll be platonic... like our parents.”

Subject:Female help needed

I've got a bit of a personal question concerning the female anatomy and I was wondering if any of you ladies could help me out. I'll put it under a cut, so it won't traumatize Kenny's delicate natureCollapse )

I can hardly believe it myself, but now I actually DO feel guilty.

Don't you just hate it when your breasts are ice cold? I think I'm going to invent a breast warmer or something.

As of tonight I am officially a certified graphic designer.

*accepts applause*

Thank you.

Although this little bureaucratic detail doesn't change anything about the quality of my work, it does mean that as of now I will be charging you an arm and a leg.


Hey, what happened to the applause!?

Today Garfield has turned 28. That's 196 in cat years.

Garfield, June 19 1978:

Garfield, June 19 2006:

As you can see the way he's drawn has changed quite a bit over the years. My favourite style is the one of 1980:
