Almost through my first whole week of living alone! It’s very odd, cooking three hot meals per day instead of just one. I’ve done it before — at university — but that was six years ago! The atrophied muscles are returning to strength… but it’s still very challenging (especially in such a small space). I don’t have a whole lot to share as I’ve been working 8 to 5, but I do have this video, which I shot earlier today…

So… I jogged again. It wasn’t any easier than yesterday, but I guess it takes time — and to be honest, I mixed up the routine a little, so it’s hard to measure if I did any better or not. I also warmed up beforehand — twists, stretches, arm-circle-thingees but perhaps I was a little too rigorous, leaving my heart not quite ready for two hundred METERS of jogging. There’s always tomorrow… and the next day! And no, though I…

This is just a brief note to say that I have submitted the initial documents required for a work visa here in Norway. While Norway’s not a member of the EU (damn oil snobs), it’s still fairly easy for me to get a job here. And once I have a job… it’s time to settle. I have a little money saved up, which I have used to place a deposit on a nice 1-room flat (property prices are similar to…

I’m off to Norway in three days! Wheee! I’ve now obtained a warm jacket (actually a snowboarding jacket — I’m so cool) and some very warm wool socks (again, snowboarding/skiing socks). Ostensibly, I will be walking — not a lot, but more than usual (i.e. more than none) — so the socks make a lot of sense. I actually need to get some new boots too — my current Timberland boots are 7 or 8 years old, but when a…

Instructions: Hit the buttons. Order doesn’t really matter, but most phrases are grouped into ‘types’. Also, visit Lilu’s blog for more grossness, after you’ve had a fiddle with my soundboard. Tips: You don’t have to wait for one sound to finish before you start another. Also, you might want to turn your volume down a little… (If you can’t see the Flash soundboard below, you need to visit my blog.) By all means let me know of any particularly nasty/nefarious…

How better to celebrate the day after Valentine’s Day than with the discussion of WAR? I’ll let you in on a little secret, something I’m rather ashamed of: my knowledge of history is really lacking. I blame it on my schooling: basically, we studied the Romans, the Tudors, some Jurassic/dinosaur stuff… and that’s it. Seriously, I left school not knowing a thing about World War 1 and 2, or any contemporary political history. Oh, I forgot: we also studied the…
