Happy Friday

I only worked for 5 hours today. Yes, you read that right. Five! And half an hour of that was lunch break. First I was told to come in an hour late so that a colleague could use my computer to proofread a translation I did (complicated story involving different versions of software and documents that can’t be printed) then I was sent home at 2:30pm. All I’d been doing since I arrived was more copying and pasting, so the bosses wife said once I was done with the German I could just go home and leave the English til Monday. Yippee!

Anyway, I saw this music meme over at sleepyjane‘s blog and I wanted to give it a go. Basically you put your mp3 player (or in my case computer playlist cos the mp3 player has no battery) on shuffle and complete each sentence with the song that comes on. Could be fun…

When I’m in the shower I sing: Trucks and Trains (by Alkaline Trio)
My day will be like:
Bitch (by Meredith Brookes – ooer, I hope not! It’s been good so far…)

Next time I’m in front of a crowd I’ll say: Drop Dead Gorgeous (by Republica)

Full of busy

This is going to have to be a quick post cos I have to go out in a minute. My ex-colleagues from where I had my last internship have asked me to go to the Bierbörse (annual beer festival) with them. Jan and I are also invited to a party later on, so I’ll only be able to stay at the festival for an hour or so. Busy evening ahead and all I really want to do is sleep! It will be nice to see my ex-collaegues again though so I’m not complaining.

I was sent home from work at 10 past 4 today. The bosses wife was just saying to Kristi and I that we could leave at half past as it was the weekend when the boss, who was walking past and overheard her, stuck his read round the door and said “well I think you should all start the weekend now”. So we did. I still didn’t get home til nearly six though what with having to wait ten minutes for a tram, half hour journey to get here then needing to go shopping. And naturally there were queues in Aldi. I arrived home to find a bunch of people sitting outside having coffee and cake. Steff and Jo had come to introduce their two month old daughter, Emily, to everyone, so I stopped for a chat before coming inside to get ready. Emily was the fifth child to be born to someone I knew this year. Since then only one more has arrived – a school friend had a daughter yesterday – but still, six babies in one year is a lot. And three people I know (one due in October, two in September) have yet to have theirs. 2008 really is the year of babies… either that or I’m just friends with the wrong people.

I’m off now to drink beer with my friends. Those of us that aren’t going around having babies can still do stuff like that…
