I had my last day at work yesterday. Was a bit weird, but I managed not to cry, which probably shows that I'm actually happy to be gone, as much as I will miss my remaining colleagues. I'll start my new job on 2. January and when I went there to sign the contract they told me that my first department will be Publishing! I'll get to write texts for the website and stuff like that, it's exactly what I always sort of wished to do, but couldn't because there were no opportunities. I'll also have to write some of the stuff in English, which is even better. Makes me feel like I've got skillz, yay! Aaaaaand.... I'll get 100€ more than I got in my old company! *bounce* Of course it will all go into petrol... *stops bouncing* But, as they say, always look on the bright side. 1 hour of driving time every day will at least give me time to listen to the podcasts that I sadly neglected recently,
mostly because I always listened to John Barrowman
. I'll also get a new mp3 player for christmas! And it's exactly the same as my old one, just without the brokeness. No more bloody CDs!
In other news, I now have a webcam:
Yep, that's me. God, I'm pale, aren't I? I really should get out more often. And I should sort this room out, it's cluttered with everyone's computer stuff. Well, it's mostly my computer stuff. Maybe I'll do something about it between the years. But most likely not...
Also, I'm totally hooked on the chat RPG at the moment. If there's one thing that's more addicting than playing Jack Harkness, then it's playing Jack Harkness in the Anne Rice universe. He's totally inside my mind, it's almost scary. My boyfriend doesn't complain though, as he, well, profits from it when I'm in Jack mode. :D Yesterday he (Jack, not my bf) had to do a speech at the Yule Ball. He danced with his current girlfriend (yep, hard to believe, he even lives with her) and with a lovely daywalker named Damian, who felt just a little bit uncomfortable because Jack creeps him out a bit. And he flirted with Marius, who sadly didn't dance with him, because he's true to Armand...
God, you know that you need a life when you blog about the life of your game chars. It's really great fun though.
Re: Torchwood. Last weeks episode was ace. I never felt so bad for Jack, I just wanted to hug him. Or Owen. Maybe Ianto should take Jack and Owen home for some nice comfort-sex-threesome. Now that I'd like to see.
Ianto was wonderful as well. Of course bananas are much more interesting than techno babble! He was just adorable in those scenes. And he's really good at maths, adding all that up in his head. Come on Jack, just promote him!
And, one more thing:
Harry Potter and the deadly Hallows. A merry christmas to you too, J.K. Rowling. And to everyone out there, in case I don't write anything else. Now I'll have to go and decorate the tree. Maybe I'll post some pictures later. Byebye!!!
ETA: Look, it's a tree! And I decorated it! Most of the stuff on it is unbreakable though, because of our cat, so no baubles. I watched Moulin Rouge while decorating, even though my mum shot me looks all the time, because she doesn't like MR. Pah, at least she got a nice tree. *nods*
I realise that the date is wrong, but that's because our camera is broken. I had to try 4 times before I got this pic...
