The day the world didn’t go BANG

Well the CERN experiment started today and it seems the world hasn’t ended after all. Either that or I’m a figment of my own imagination, typing on an imaginary keyboard. Somehow I think not…
The world couldn’t have ended today anyway. If the world’s going to end I’m sure it will choose a day when I have much more exciting plans than just going to work. Probably my wedding day. Just before I say the words “I do” the world will blow up, leaving me to die unmarried. At least that’s what would happen if I was a character in a book.

I’m really tired today and can’t be bothered to do anything. The dirty laundry is piling up again and threatening to take over my room, but before I can wash it I have to go into the cellar and get an appointment. If I’m lucky there’ll actually be one free before the end of this week. (Have I mentioned recently how much I hate living here? Just six and a half months til I can finally get my own flat!). The good news is that the boyfriend finally has a washing machine – his flat mate’s sister moved out of her flat and didn’t need the washing machine anymore, so her brother took it on. That means once I finally get to the bottom of the huge pile of washing I won’t have to wash all his clothes any more. Just the ones he leaves here whenever he comes over.

I also need to sort out my desk and find room on the bookcase for all sthe books that are just lying around. Quite frankly this room looks like a bomb’s hit it. It’s not entirely my fault though. There’s just so much stuff – and so little space. I’m sure when I first moved to Germany I actually had enough room for all my belongings. It’s amazing how much stuff can accumulate in two short years. And most of my stuff isn’t even here! I still have an entire room full of stuff at my dad’s house. Including most of my books. See why I need to get out of this place – it’s the only way I’ll ever get to have all my books with me! Without them I feel like a part of me’s missing.

Oh well, I’m off to make myself a nice cup of tea. Hopefully the caffeine will keep me awake until Jan gets here with whatever he’s decided we’re making for tea…

  1. LOL, yeah. I believe they did start the thing today – BBC news says they sent the first beam (or ray or whatever it is they were sending) on its circuit. So in about two months they’ll be sending one in the other direction. Then there’ll be some collisions and a black hole might just appear. Or not. Either way it means we’ll be getting a new wave of panic in a few months time. Woo-hoo.

  2. I almost had all my washing done, but then I ran out of 20 cent pieces for the washing machine. Aaarggh! I can’t wait til I have my own flat where I can at least keep the dirty stuff in alaundry basket in the bathroom instead of having to keep every single thing I own in my bedroom.

  3. I think the answer is to spend MUCH more time at Jan’s and to leave all your dirty washing there in the hope that he will do it for you.

    Don’t go near the cellar though, sounds very ‘horror film scenario’ to me. You may have to defend yourself with some fabric conditioner and a 20c piece from a deranged student. I worry for you.

  4. LOL, I actually really hated going into the cellar when I first moved in here! I’ve kind of got used to it now but still don’t like going to the back bit where they have a clothes drying room… the front bit all has proper floor and looks kind of lived in but towards the back it’s all draughty with stone floors. Anything could happen back there…
