The fat weeks are over

August 07, 2005

Well, today marks the end of my wonderful two-week holidays. Tomorrow I will be returning to the place some people like to refer to as “the pit” and others as “THE PIT”. Actually, I’ve never heard anyone refer to this place as “the pit”, but I think if ever people started to refer to this place as “the pit” it would be well deserved.

Right, so how did I use my spare time? Did I really do what I had intended to do with the time lavishly granted by the gods of mandatory factory-closing holidays? Here’s a list of the things I had planned on accomplishing during the two weeks:

Right, so what exactly did I do? Well, I did spend a good deal of the first week with my girlfriend, which is great and of course much more desirable than all the other things mentioned above. The second week though, with my girlfriend back in Vienna, I spent doing virtually nothing. I got up late, ate, drank coffee, watched TV (in such an abundance that I’m a bit ashamed of myself, now that I think of it), read the awful local newspaper, and watched some more TV.

All in all, days well spent.
