What happened was that I left the library to meet a friend, planning to come back later in the day. Instead, I discovered my bike had been stolen while I was inside. A lot of panicking, searching, remorse, hoping, cursing, whining and indulging in violent revenge phantasies followed, as you can imagine. Ever the word nerd, I was even composing a husiary portraying my favourite expletives in my mind while I was waiting for my turn at the police department. Somebody have his Russian mafia pals feed those pigfuckers a few spoonfuls of polonium, please?
No, don't. I can't even dish out cruel and unusual punishment in my helpless revenge phantasies. I'm such a softy.
Back home at last, I was still way too agitated to actually sit down at the computer and write anything. Funny how different people seem to be in this regard. I'm probably hopelessly oldfashioned, and a non-techie to boot, but for me no form of writing suits spontaneous conversation, which includes letting off steam. Thus, no real time blogging from/for me.
Instead, I did the wrong thing, as usual, and basically curled up in my cave and had a shitty week. Not just because that/those SCHWEINEPRIESTER!! amputated my wheels. This is generally the time of the year for me to be fed up with myself even more than usually. I'm at the point where posting a diary is a momentous boost in my social life. I didn't talk to anybody Tuesday through Monday. I didn't "work" much on my whothefuckcares paper despite being way behind schedule anyway. I didn't even read this site anymore. All of this is not good.
Ich habe es satt, allein aufzustehn
Als erster zu sehn
Dass ich noch lebe
Ah, life, what's not to hate?
Well, it's been a week, life goes on. Doesn't it always?
My Christmas cactus is budding. It's a miracle any plants survive in my "care", but the cactus might even be in full bloom before I leave for my annual family roundtrip. Thanks, pal.
Schlumbergera. Schlumberger is an Alsatian name, I believe. In German, a smurf/ un schtroumpf is called ein Schlumpf. Harumph.
I had more, but I'll keep that for another day. Thanks for your time. I feel better already.
