Wednesday Weirdness

Since today is Wednesday Weirdness (follow the link if you want to play as well).
But I want to share a few more Weirdness things.

My mom and I always critise the actresses at the oscars, but since we're in different countries I got an e-mail from my mom with comments. I just have to share the one on Angelina Jolie with you guys. Angelina Jolie, her goal in life? To look good. She even got a stamp of approval.

Walking around in Edinburgh you don't see many dogs. The only dogs I've seen so far are from the bums on the streets or from really really ugly couples. And then I mean really really really x 10 ugly. Even Momma D's bachelorettes aren't that ugly.
Really these people have bought a dog to have something to look at instead of looking at their partner. The first dog I came across that wasn't lying down with a bum was cute and then I looked up to see who the dog belonged to, jeez I got scarred for life, I looked back at the dog immediately.

But onto Wednesday Weirdness.

1.) You're on a trip taking a tour through the jungle. You have a backpack with some food, some first aid supplies, a pocket knife, a flashlight and a couple bottles of water. Some how, you get separated from your group. By night fall you haven't found your group and haven't heard them looking for you. How long do you think you would be able to survive on your own?
Probably until the food is gone or I'm killed by big jungle beast. I'm not a girl scout at all. But I would try to survive as long as possible but I won't eat anything from the jungle, you never know what you can eat.

2.) Do you think it's okay to lie to spare someone's feelings? Why?
Depending what you're going to lie about. If it is really important I won't lie to spare someone's feelings. But if it's just a white lie, then I would tell it.

3.) If a talking Nic doll were made, what are THREE phrases it would say?
Jeez I would have absolutely have no idea. But let's give it a go.
- Probably one would have something to do with movies.
- At the moment (or well....all times when I'm working) Does anyone have anything for me to do?
- Giggling

4.) If the super power to be able to read minds at your own will were possible, do you think it would be... cool and helpful, intrusive and wrong, manipulative or maddening? Explain why you would or wouldn't want to be able to read anyone's mind at your own will.
This is an essay question.
If I was the one able to read minds at my own will, I would think it was cool and helpful. But it someone else would be invading my mind at their own will it would be intrusive, wrong, manipulative and maddening.

I do think it would get boring if you would read minds all the time. I would only use them for good, to help the less fortunate (and for exams and stuff :P).

5.) Drunk confessions, are they the things people can't bring themselves to say sober or just crazy ramblings of an influenced and intoxicated mind?
Pff it's probably a mix. They want to say it when they are sober but they don't know how to start, and when they are tipsy/drink they just get it out. But there are a lot of crazy ramblings in those conversations as well. You just need to pick up on the real and the crazy stuff.

6.) What brings out the worst in you?
3x. And no sleep.

7.) Do you think long distance relationships work? Have you ever been in one before?
No, because you really really have to trust the other. Because there are so many temptations when you are doing the long distance thing.
But I haven't been in one before, so I couldn't really judge.

That's it for today.

Update before the weekend

So I've been setting up a social life this week. My god, I've been busy.

I met Yol on Tuesday. We had fun. Communication was difficult as times. Since her English is bad and my Spanish even worse. And we met up today again to go to the theatre. The Mystery of Irma Vep. It was way too funny. Only two guys who were doing all the parts. All of a sudden there is a third peron in the back. And they look at each other, point at the other and then at themselves, look to the audience and pull up their shoulders (like 1, 2, who is that?).
And there was one scene where guy 1 wanted to speak to another character guy 1 was playing. Guy 2 says, it's not possible. Guy 1: I want to speak to guy 1. Guy 2: It is physically impossible. Guy 1: I want to speak to guy 1. Guy 2: It is PHYSICALLY impossible. Guy 1 looks at himself and is then like Ow it's physically impossible. Then I will go to guy 1 (wink), and walks of stage.

Wednesday I was meeting up with another Spanish girl. She took a German girl with her. And she also met up with a Scottish girl. The Scottish girl and I met up yesterday after work to exchange some movies.

On Monday I joined the gym. On Wednesday I had my assessment, that was easy. On Thursday during lunch I had my programme setting. So fumbling around with weights and levels to see what my level is. That was okay. But after work I got this class called Legs, bums and tums. Don't think that is easy. And when I made the appointment for the programme setting I forgot that I had class after work. It was a bit too much.
My calves are hurting when I get up and the first few paces. Walking is going fine, as well as walking up the steps. Down the steps is a bit harder. Hopefully the pain is gone by tomorrow.

I met up with a German intern from work for lunch. And we first wanted to do something after work on Monday but I've got bookclub and she got class. So we decided we eat at my place on Tuesday. But I've already got an appointment on Tuesday, I just figured that out 5 minutes ago. Tuesday is Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday/Pancake day (I thought we were going to eat pancakes with the office) and we are invited to go and eat at a restaurant in town.

Well...Roomie just put on A Cinderella Story, so I'm signing of for today.

Wednesday Weirdness

Another Wednesday Weirdness. Check out their website!

1. What is the most exciting part of a sexual encounter for you?
When it's your time to get to relax and enjoy what is going on. But it's the most frustrated part at the same time, because if you don't like what he's doing or he's not doing it right, you just get frustrated and can't relax to enjoy it anymore.

2. What is your favorite way to relax after sex?
If it's with the right guy, just cuddling and maybe some talking.

3. Do you find sex with someone you have emotional attachment with to be better than casual fucking with someone you don't have emotional attachment with?
It's more intense when you have an emotional attachment. But if you have been having sex with the guy before so you really know what the other likes, the casual fucking could be more relaxing because you don't have to worry about the emotional stuff. Do you get what I mean?

4. What was the last really horrible movie you watched? (At home, theater, etc)
Horrible pfff...requiem for a dream, pi. Euhm....I know I have seen some bad movies lately but those two stayed with me for years now.

5. What are 3 things some done could do or say during foreplay that would kill the mood for you?
Talking about things that aren't right for the moment, so anything non-sex related.
Say you want to involve another person.

Well...talking about mood killers. I went out with Tall Guy in December. And I decided it was time to get him back. Like five years ago, he pushed me into doing something sexual that I didn't want to, just because I didn't want to do that with him. And I caved in the end because I was too tired to say no. So this time it would all be on my terms, since I knew as soon as we met that day that he wanted me to end up in his bed. I did, he didn't. No well....we first ended in bed together but just to go to sleep. And then he wanted to have some fun. So why not. And I was teasing him and he was moaning my name. And I have the same name as his sister, I got into a fit of giggles. I could never moan some guys name if it was the same as my little brother's, since I would be thinking of my brother instead of the guy I'm having sex (or doing other fun stuff) with.
What do you guys think on this subject?

6. Where do you think the best place to buy sexy lingerie is? Why?
At the lingerie store. They've got a lot of choice and the sex shops are a bit more skanky. They also have great stuff but most of the times it's not what you're wearing but how you're wearing it.

7. Do you think how a person dances gives you a glimpse to how they perform in bed?
No. None at all. But that's probably because I know a guy who could dance good and was good in bed, and a guy who sucked at dancing but was good in bed.

8. When was the last time you got served breakfast in bed?
I don't do breakfast in bed, I hate the crumbs. But I had dinner in bed with Tiny.

Keeping busy

Work is still not really interesting. I do more but it's not like I really need to have a degree to do what I'm doing now. I even think that I could have done this work before I started high school, it is just that simple.

To feel less lonely I hav tried to keep myself busy. I have been to the cinema on Wednesday with Roomie. He's just not that into you. If you want to go, take your girls, don't drag your man along. He'll hate it. He'll be laughing his ass off when you have the classic Oews and Aahs from the females at the most obvious scenes. Hell, I even laughed my ass off when the rest of the females where oew-ing and aah-ing. For me, the movie was okay.

On Thursday I went to an International Meetup. Apparently 2 French people had set it up. Well...they have been here since September and their English is as good as my French Je ne parle pas de francais. So they couldn't keep up a conversation. There was a Polish girl, she was okay. And there where 3 Indian guys. One had a creepy appearance, the other looked creepy (he just stared at you), and the third looked okay but was acting creepy. Everything you said he went into it. Like we were talking about movies, I have a friend who works at the cinema we can go together for free. I was trying to tell him that I read the book Q&A (the book of Slumdog Millionaire) but he kept on trying to get me to the cinema with him to see that movie. In the end I just gave up trying to tell him that the book was not my kind of book and that I wouldn't want to see the movie. I just said okay, and then would avoid him if he would want to set a date.

At the end of the evening they (French) had decided that we could go bowling on Sunday and to the movies afterwards. The Indian wanted to go to Slumdog Millionaire. The French to Doubt and in the end it was Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The Polish girl has a birthday so she can't go. I'm thinking that I'd rather be alone than hang out with this weird bunch.

Then I found another girl online. We are maybe going to the movies tonight, but I don't want to go to the late screening since I have to work tomorrow.

Today I'm going to finally get my sport shoes so I can go to the gym.

Wednesday Weirdness on Thursday

So I've been keeping busy the last few days, that's why Wednesday Weirdness is going to be on Thursday because I just haven't had the time yesterday.

You want to play too?

1. If you were to be reincarnated as an inanimate object, what would you choose to come back as?
An airplane, I would love to be able to fly.

2. If you were told that you would be equipped with the perfect comeback to any remark, but it would cost you five years of your life would you take it?
Why not? You don't know at what age you are going to die.

3. What would be the most shocking thing your mom could have ever told you?
I dunno.

4. If you could spend 24 hours as the opposite gender, what would you do?
Again, I dunno.

5. Describe the ugliest outfit you have ever worn in public. orange, yellow, pink horizontal flame t-shirt lookalike.

6. Do you like to celebrate Valentine's Day or do you wish you could magically pouf it from the calendar? If you did, what holiday would you invent to put in its place?
You should appreciate your relationship every day not only on Valentine's day. Furthermore is everything romantic trice the price if it involves Valentine's day. I would invent Nic-day. Everything should revolve around me and give me loads of presents. But I would place it in the Summer since I'm already getting presents in December (birthday).

feeling lonely :(

I'm a people person. I really need people around me to feel okay. But I can be alone as well. But not for that long. Ápparently it takes me about a week to really need people around me.

I know I've to my roomie but she's on night shift and thus asleep at the moment. If she has dayshift she's gone before I even think about getting up and she comes home when I'm already thinking about going to bed.

There's nothing good on the television. And since I don't have a library card, I don't have anything to read. I've already finished my books I got from the bookstore and I can't buy a stackload of books every week. I'm not getting paid for work so I can't spend money on unnecessary things like books. I need the money for food and living.

I could do something for school. I've got some stuff with me. But since I'm still feeling sick I can't focus on reading useful stuff.

And the sick feeling isn't helping my loneliness either. It's making it worse.

Yuck, I hate feeling this way.

Back luck

What a day.

I woke up coughing. I've got a coughing syrup but that's for a dry cough. I do have dry coughs, but I've also got ticklish coughs, and the coughs that get stuck in your throat. And I've got huge headaches, not even paracetamol is working.

But I had to get out of the house, for some fresh air and some shopping. I first went to the academic library because I'd ordered some books this morning, apparently I was 5 minutes too late for the last sending and thus I will have to wait till Monday to get the books.

Then I went to the public library to get a library card. I was there before to get a card but they needed proof of my address, and since I was still living at the hotel, I couldn't provide any. I'm not getting any post here in Edinburgh because everything just goes to my parents back home. It would be too much of a hassle to first change my address into an Edinburgh one and then in August change it all back. This week we finally signed the rental agreement and I took it with me as proof that I was living in Edinburgh. Apparently, that is not proof. So I couldn't get a library card and thus no books.

I wanted to send some cards to the family. I got cards but I didn't get any stamps. And no one could tell me where I could get them. So in one store and out the other. Finally a girl tells me that they sell stamps but only for within UK and that I have to go to the post office if I need other ones. She explains where the post office is.

I had already been walking around for more than 2 hours and was kind of getting very tired. I wasn't feeling well and this walking didn't help either. But I wanted to get some stamps so off I went.

I followed the girl's directions but I couldn't find the post office. I had an Edinburgh map with me so I checked that one, nope nothing. Then I got my Dutch Edinburgh book out (sort of Lonely planet book), and I found a post office. I walked there but it seemed closed. And so it was. It closes at noon.

I'm back home now and even coughing worse than before. I wanted to do something but I feel like nothing. I know I need to do some schoolwork. But I'm really not up for that. I think I will just watch a movie, even though I'm also not feeling up for that.

Blegh, I have feeling like this.

Wednesday Weirdness

It's time for another Wednesday Weirdness. Check out the Wednesday Weirdness website if you want to play too.

1.) Tell us something that to you is weird about your significant other. (If single, pick an ex) It can be a personality quirk, a hobby, a habit, a ritual etc but just make sure it's something you find odd about them.
I don't know. I've banned certain exes from my memory. But the ones I do (want to) remember don't really have odd ticks. One of them used (and still does) to drum his fingers on everything. He couldn't sit still for a second, he started pounding his fingers on the closest thing.

2.) What are 3 songs that you find sexy?
Jeez. I really have to break my head on these questions. I really really don't know. I've just checked the music I have on my computer and I have trouble finding them.
- Jessica Simpson With You
- Nick Lachey What's left of me
- Maroon 5 ft Rihanna If I never see your face again

3.) After your partner goes down on you, do they have to brush their teeth/rinse with mouthwash before meeting your mouth again or do things just roll on?
We're getting busy, so you don't stop in the middle of the heat.

4.) Is it ever okay to go ass to mouth without cleaning in between? (Anal sex to oral sex. Licking the anus to kissing. Etc )

5.) If you were going to give yourself a "Most Likely To..." award for this week, what would your title be?
get picked up at the bus station :P.

6.) Do you read any self-help books? If so, which is your favorite? If not, why not?
Never felt the need to have a self-help book.

7.) Do you prefer to buy porn, sex toys, lube and things of that nature in a store or discreetly online? Why?
I've gotten stuff at the store. They pack it pretty discrete. But I've never had to buy for myself always for friends.

8.) List these things in order from what you find most sexy to least sexy: Money, Loyalty, Sense of humor, Intelligence, Kindness, Romantic, Open-mindedness, Kinky, Honesty.
Sense of humor, kindness, honesty, loyalty, open-mindedness, romantic, intelligence, kinky, money.

First day of Work

So today was my first day of work. It wasn't all that interesting.

Because they were working with a couple of deadlines they didn't have any work for me. Well...they did have some work but I finished it too quickly apparently. They were like You're done? That's fast. No I think I've could have been faster but I had my blog open and was checking if any of the blogs I read were updated.

Talking about blogs I read. Delizcious where have you gone to? You're gone private. Please invite me.

Back to work. I've made some pictures (leave a comment with your e-mail and I'll email you the link). And at work we needed a good picture of a bagpiper and from now on they are going to use mine, yeeh :D.

Nothing else to tell. Life pretty boring with the blegh snow (it's not real snow, but slushy) and nothing yet to do at night.
I'm going to shop for a sportoutfit so I can sport after work and during lunchbreak.

lazy day

Today has been a lazy day. I didn't even go out to walk about town. I'm even too lazy to get up to make myself dinner.

Yesterday at the party I had a few more first times. I look French. You can hear in my accent that I'm Dutch. But then when I said that I normally get people saying that my English is American, he said Yes that's true so I lost my Dutch accent within a sentence.

I just had a lot of fun. I haven't even really spoken with the guy who took me there. And I've been invited to all future parties (I won't even know how to get there again, but nevermind).

Most of the people who were there I will have to work with, probably. I arrange holidays for business people (they get an incentive to edinburgh instead of a bonus). And the people of the party work at a hotel, that I arrange occasionally. And I'm not allowed to mention the party at work.

I'm getting hungry, so I'm taking my butt of the couch and do something.

first weekend

So this was my first weekend all alone in Edinburgh. Well...I still got one day left of the weekend but I've done a lot so far.

I've been around town to find some laundry stuff (basket, airer (apparently called a horse here. I was standing in line for the register and some guy behind me asks Where did you get the horse. I didn't respond because why could anybody be talking to me. But he was. And when I answered in aisle 2 he wandered off).

I was walking towards the busstop and I see the bus I'm going to be needing coming. But the people in front of me are walking sloooow, so I miss my bus. I look at the time schedule and see that that bus is coming every 6 min. So I wait. After 15 minutes still no bus (you just gotta love public transport, that's why I'm living within walking distance of work). So I start to moan a bit. And the guy behind me asks me how long I've been waiting and where I need to go. So we started talking and then finally the bus came (after probably waiting for 25 min). And he got my number, just in case, since I didn't know anybody. And then he texted me that he got a party tonight with people from work, and if I would like to come along and meet people. So I went (didn't tell my parents because they would be mad as hell).

At the party I've been talking to Europe. There were Scottish (duh), English, Italian, Belgian, French, Spanish, and Dutch people (I wasn't the only Dutch). And then we leave again. I'm thinking that he's gonna walk me home. Or drop me off at the place where we met to go to the party. I open the gate and he lets me walk through first. He starts talking about chivalry, that I will come across a lot of "gentlemen" and stuff. But then he gives me directions to go home. A girl, who doesn't know where she is, has to walk about 10 minutes back home, in the middle of the night. Are you crazy! He was talking about a dinner he had at a friends house. And that he was waiting for the bus at 2 at night. And the girl who made dinner was waiting with him because you couldn't leave someone out alone. ARGH!

So I walked home fast. I came across a lot of people. None of them walking straight, except for the 2 policemen. I got home safely. But I think I'm going to find a replacement pepperspray (maybe deodorant) to put in my bag, to spray someone who will hassle me too much. Just in case I ever have to walk alone at night.

I'm off to bed. I just had to write down my frustration. Pics of the flat will be posted tomorrow.
