Here is hoping you all have a good Christmas! Mine has been about a gazillion times better compared to last year's (so far anyway) and the NY celebrations will be seriously awesome, that much is clear.

A toast to all you fabulous people!

So I buckled.... first meme.

People Envy Your Generosity

You're a giving soul, and you'd do almost anything for those you love. And they'd do anything for you!
People may envy how giving you are, but more than anything, they envy those you open your heart to.

Is this even true? I might have to try kal's test for a more accurate result. :p

To avoid being a spoilsport

If there is at least one person on your friends list you would like to take, strip naked, tie to a bed post, lick until they scream, then fuck until both of you are senseless, then wait about five minutes and do it all over again, post this exact sentence in YOUR journal.

With a bit of luck...

...well, maybe more with *quite some luck* I am getting an appartment of my own. Got a note from the housing agency yesterday: I am number 4 on the list for a 47 sq meters appartment for just 4200 Swedish kronor (450 euros approx.) and its located in a very nice area as well!!
A tad expensive (seeing as how I earn about 12500 kronor a month) but still...I am all excited now, even though I need 3 people to say no to the place. So, pray for me, wish me good luck, whip out your pagan rituals, do the rain dance, dance the polka and hold your breath! :p

And yet another crappy day at work. I hate it when a project lacks structure and hence efficiency. Why the hell do we have a project leader if he doesn't do his job? I am so effing tired of doing everything twice, making up random decisions on the spot and finishing others their work. There is nothing wrong with improvising, but it feels as if this project is nothing but!
Plus it hurts my practical, efficient side, I can hardly take pride in the quality of my work due to major annoyance. Aaargh.

Party aftermath

Had a fun Christmas party last night, organised by our company.

Always cool to talk to (drunk) colleagues about non-work-related things in a non-work environment. Virtually everyone was dressed up, a sight never to be seen at work (god forbid :P) and with some luck there might even be pictures next week for those who are interested in images of drunken Swedes.

Managed to get decent table seats as well (i.e. not in the boring corner) and enjoyed the show even! No I am not the *omg entertainment sucks type* but this was a schlager/Eurovision it was hard to know in advance *what* to expect. Great fun though!

Of course I chose an odd moment to head for the toilets. Apparently I landed in the middle of a conversation, in front of the toilets, between a random person (drunk), 2 of my colleagues (M: drunk and T: very drunk) and a friend to M. (roaring drunk and on the verge of nirvana if you ask me).
What turned out to be the case: M's friend had, in his intoxicated state, difficulty grasping the fact that colleague T has the same name as he himself has. After some confusion he loudly stated: ''the chance for that to happen is only slightly larger than for someone from Holland to enter the room now''.....Cue me entering.
Much hilarity ensued and I had to explain my Dutchness several times to the guy. In fact, he grabbed my arm twice when I made a move towards the toilet, inquiring again after my nationality. More laughter from my colleagues. It *was* funny. The third time I managed to get away, at last.

I didn't even manage to get really drunk (too much dancing I guess), even though I made a valiant attempt by drinking cognac along with my beer(s). Felt only vaguely bad, unlike some others *cough*A.*cough* who only woke up around noon. :p

Oh! And only a week till I am off to Holland for a few days. Gonna be fun to meet the family again and I even managed to stuff *visiting some friends* in my schedule. After that this year better be over.

Friday, bloody Friday

Well, I figured that, under the circumstances, I should start an LJ. It doesn't look like much yet and the amount of tweakable options is, frankly, mind-blowing, but it is mine! :p

And at least I am comforted by the thought that I am now part of the LJ club, requirements 'self importance', 'feeling others need to read your written drivel' and, erm,...'being a wanker in general'.

On a slightly different note, I am bored out of my mind at work. It is not like I have nothing to do, I just can't get cracking on anything. No valid excuse whatsoever, unlike half the board population, who seem to be suffering from various gradations of hangover. In fact, had we had a decent work flow for this particular project from the start, half of my time wouldn't have been wasted on checking and double-checking information, not to mention making up rules of editing on the spot. Grmbl.

The bright side of this bloody Friday is the Christmas party the company has arranged for tonight. My favorite colleagues will be there and the presence of lots and lots of alcohol is something I am truly looking forward to. No worries, I won't snog married men.
