I'm bored

Apparently, Schopenhauer tried to prove the vanity of human existence by taking boredom as an example. He must have been so bored when he came up with that idea. And I, as someone who can't measure herself against one of philosophy's greats, am probably bored even more.

I was talking to one of my friends on the phone yesterday, catching up on what had been happening in our lives over the last few months. While she could talk at length about all kinds of things she'd seen and done since October, all I could answer when her attention turned to me was, "oh you know: same old, same old". I couldn't think of a single anecdote to tell her, and it seems like the only thing I'm interested in doing in my spare time these days is to try and rebuild my playlists on my mp3 player. You wouldn't believe how painstaking and time-consuming a task that can be!

Which reminds me, the titles no one got in our last round of 'Guess That Tune!' were of songs by Maroon 5, Billy Paul, The Jam, Elvis Costello, Sufjan Stevens, Malcolm McLaren and Björk. I guess it wasn't that good, or that easy, a selection. Oh well, better luck next time!

Iceland Air were advertising 199 euro flights to New York in the paper this morning. Unfortunately, when I logged onto their website, the cheapest I could find is for 300 euros, with a 2-hour stopover at Rejkjavik. Still a good offer, and I've always wanted to go to Iceland...If only CoRo could put some NYC dates up soon, I'd have a reason to go!

And finally ('cause I really should be getting back to work): I nicked this off enigmaticblues, curious to see what tree goes with my personality.

You scored as The Rowan. In Celtic astrology, you're a Rowan tree. The animal symbol that accompanies this tree is the dragon. The ancient Druids say Rowan people have powerful imaginations and are idealistic, progressive, humanitarian, spiritual and good with change. However, Rowans may be prone to restlessness, quarreling, impatience or aloofness.
