It's blowing. The wind. It's harsh. Trees are falling down. Maybe power cables. Maybe phone lines. I assume this is the case, since our ISP has been letting our Internet jump on and off these past couple of days all the while the somewhat-Storm rages outside.
I managed to check my email this morning, write a few reviews, get (almost) down to business, but next time - mid-letter - I popped up Google Translate it was down again. I'd almost forgotten what it's like to look up a word in a dictionary. That dry feeling of paper is pretty nice though. The crackling sound the book makes as you flip the pages. The final 'slap' as you close the cover and shove it back onto the shelf...
Swapping topic, I've moved from throat side-effects to nose side-effects on my short venture from cold start to cold end, probably much thanks to the large doses of B-C-D-Vitamin, Magnesium, Omega 3/12/?, Garlic and Royal Jelly I've been eating these past three days. My stomach really doesn't like Royal Jelly, but my nose immediately clears up right after a 10ml dose. Like magic! The day before yesterday I was sweating like crazy. Went to sleep before 11 but couldn't fall asleep until after 3. Partially because I was right in the middle of Harry Potter's pre-trial challenges in 'The Goblet of Fire' and eventually had to open the book again and stop reading at a less eventful part. Partly because eating so much healthy stuff apparently makes you do that.
Internet's still not back up! ARGHHH!
I use Google to check since I assume they're always online, but just imagine the public outcry if that server raid in Stockholm, yesterday, just so happened to claim their servers hostage as well? I know they have their own secret mountain facilities and incredibly luxurious Google-colored server farms... but just imagine...
Oh, the server raid? While I'm facing my annoyingly unstable Internet troubles, some people are having much bigger troubles than I. Their servers are confiscated. Their sites are down. I hope they have backups!
But while these people are facing their annoyingly inconvenient server troubles, some people are having much bigger issues on their hands. That's a petition link btw, to stop Monsanto from running over the citizens of Maui and messing up the world even further. Important stuff.
I've been borrowing the car to drive to work this week. I love driving. Wish I could drive more often! At those times when I'm fully alert and supremely happy and not sitting in the drivers seat just to aid the body's automatic snivel-withering process that a 14km bike ride probably wouldn't.
Did you know that breathing through your left nostril makes you relaxed, and breathing through your right makes you energetic? Each nostril stimulates a different part of the brain, so you'd best breath equally through both nostrils. If your stressed or anxious, check out which nostril you're breathing the most through. It's probably the right. Right? Enough about nostrils.
So what's up! So what is UP?! So who's down at this time of the year? When does the sun go down in your part of the world? I hope I don't write out my daily quota before they fix the net here, still have a few reviews I should do... meanwhile: life is life. I'm drawing an awesome Christmas card for a collab. I was on a roll with Nicholas Cage movies but now it's back to Asian martial art mastery and Donnie Yen's last year trilogy of films. That's all.
