If I’m being honest …

If I’m being honest it’s way too late already again now that I’m finishing this post so I’ll keep the intro short and sweet as usual on Thursdays. More words left to think out loud? Clearly what I’d intended. Thanks to Amanda for hosting – and to my neighbour for letting me use her WLAN while I’m technically still without internet.

If I’m being honest …

… part of the reason why I’ve missed my cooking motiviation is the lack of a dishwasher. Or actually that’s not quite correct. Ironically, the dishwasher from my old apartment moved in with me. It’s mine – bought used from the previous tenants – so I clearly wasn’t going to leave it behind. #firstworldproblems? If I used hashtags: absolutely. But hey, both a water and time saver it has a lot of undeniable benefits. Too bad: now that I finally wouldn’t have to correct anybody’s wrong ways of loading the dishwasher I don’t have a dishwasher to use anymore.

[Unlike others, though, I haven’t named my car [yet]. Should I? Suggestions 😉 ?]

… after quite some drama about getting my internet and landline set up [naming just the key points: a router that mysteriously dis- and reappeared [but in the wrong place], a totally non-work compatible installation date,  hanging in line for a total of over an hour when trying to reach my internet provider]: all of that made me consider saying screw it and going back to life without internet. For approximately one second. Because if I’m being honest …

… I can’t imagine life without internet. Sad but true. Like I said: for a time? yes. Forever? Are you kidding?

If I’m being honest …

… cutesy may or may not have played a role when I picked up this:

In my defence I did need new cotton buds either way. But owls made my decision easier and anything that helps my indecisiveness can only be seen as a bonus.

If I’m being honest …

… I just ran out of thoughts for today so all that’s left to say is: We’re this close to the weekend! Time to start making plans if you haven’t yet. Mine will clearly include sleeping in.

 

Happiness-inducing today: Meeting a few more really nice colleagues that had been on holiday still on my first day.
