::le sigh::

My first thought of the day was of the shoes I saw and liked the look of yesterday. This means I'll probably head back to the shop after I'm done here and get them, when I thought I'd successfully managed to talk myself out of acquiring another pair of courts when I haven't even let the ones I bought a few months ago out of their box yet...They're black and pink tweed with black leather piping and front and a very elegant heel, and the way I feel now, I'll never forgive myself if I don't get them -- but when will I wear them? The ankle is getting stronger and the swelling is finally starting to go down (more than a year after originally sustaining the injury), but I'm a long way from being comfortable in stilletos yet.

I've perked up no end since discovering that I've got all that holiday left -- I can easily afford to take a day, or two even, off work every week and devote that time to the search for another job closer to home. I might even have time to take up another hobby, like salsa dancing, or pottery classes! Then again, I might just lounge about in my pyjamas all day.

First things first though, and I need to get my driver's license renewed. Never mind the fact that I haven't driven in ages and the mere thought of ever getting behind the wheel again sends shivers down my spine, so certain am I that I've forgotten most if not all of the highway code, and as for reversing into a parking space...::shudders::...but I'd be mad not to renew it. It cost me enough aggro to get it first third time around; and if I miss my window now, I'd have to go through all that again. This means I'm going to have to have my picture taken, too...Not today though, 'cause my hair's a mess.

::le sigh pt. 2::

So I found this code on the packet that housed my evening meal. All I had to do was surf to this website, pick a destination on the map, and enter the code -- then it would tell me whether I'd won a trip to said place. "Warning", it said, "This code can only be used once!" I looked at the world map, and went "Oooh, India! -- but hang on, there's something to be said for...Japan!" I clicked Hokkaido, typed in the code, and watched the tiny aeroplane take off from Schiphol and land in...friggin' India! Aaaarrrggghhh! Why didn't I go with my first choice?

Sure enough, when I tried it again, it knew the code had already been used...

Oh well, at least I sort of lucked out in this quiz:


To which race of Middle Earth do you belong?

I've always fancied myself as a Rider of the Rohirrim, perhaps because I love to ride in real life (though sadly, I don't get to indulge in it much these days), but mostly because they're not as high-falutin' as the Elves or the arrogant Lords of Gondor. Just give me a swift horse, an epic song and a horn of mead, and I'll be alright.
