Each season is different, so somethings are creepy, somethings are shocking, somethings push the envelope! A lot of it is psychological, too. FX is definitely able to go places network tv can't.

Good morning MMC gang!

How are you? I over slept this morning and had to fly through my usual morning activities so to not miss my bus to work. Just because I forgot to put on my alarm clock.

At the moment it is very quiet at the office. Maybe it will be like this all day.

I got some news I want to share with you! My parents bought a flat! The construction company will start building it in January 2014 and we will be able to move in around June / July 2015. The flat is bigger than the one we live in now. So far we had only live in small old buildings, so the new flat will have a lot of things that are "luxury" to us. It has a very big balcony (almost 40 m2) which is accessible through all bedrooms, a big living and dining room and two bathrooms with a shower and a bathtube and a open kitchen. The whole flat will be 120 m2.

The best thing is, that our bank is offering us a very good mortgage loan. My parents were wondering if they will be able to get a mortagage loan they could afford, but this one is amazing.

When I lived in Smithers British Columbia years ago I used to love watching the snow come down the mountain.
I'll tell you on friday how far the snow came down our mountain. I love to watch this as well.

I have a stress fracture of one of the metatarsal bones. So for the next 4 to 6 weeks I get to wear some fancy new footwear and use Crutches. Which I hate and probably won't use. I'll just use a cane to keep some of the weight off of it. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, I hope your foot will be better soon. Of course it will be faster if you keep that footware on

Good evening everyone! I bet your day was great as usual. :] I met my university program director so she had approved equivalent courses taught in AUC (Amsterdam University College). I will get my equivalent university credits here if I go abroad which is great! I wrote my CV and I'm almost done with my personal statement/letter of motivation. I should get my reference by next Monday, and application form is easy to fill in so somehow I'm almost done with documentation! I still need passport photographs but I hope to get them tomorrow. I'm now thinking of taking some medicine (although I normally never do that) because I'm feeling sick in my stomach. I had some cake earlier today because my course mate has a birthday. Normally smart people don't eat such things which, they know, make them feel sick afterwards, and yes, I have not been smart person today. Anyway, enough complains. :] Hope everyone is having a nice evening! xx
Too bad, I wanted to look for one of their CDs. Anyway I'm happy that you got almost all of your documents ready!

Today was my first day of work, and it went really well! I worked a lot of muscles I didn't even realize I had!! I learned a lot, and am pretty darn exhausted. I think I will really like it. The lady who trained me is very nice, and knows her stuff. They had two unexpected trucks come in, so we were all moving quick. She complimented me on my hard work ethic, and a great first day. That was nice to hear- she even had me on a headset a half hour in.

I saw tons of beautiful Christmas decorations being unpacked in the back! It all will be out by Thursday ������ Can't wait!!

Well, better get Harlowe walked again soon, and start on the dishes tonight.

Then, it's time to relax a bit. I have a few mystery shows/movies to watch.

Hope you guys have a fabulous evening!!

We will have wifi, so I will still occasionally check in, but I am going to have a blast and enjoy myself!

Hope you are all well! Thinking of all you guys! Miss you all as well! God Bless!

It frightens me sometimes. I'm always in panick that I won't finish my assessments on time or I won't deal with my other uni activities. ^^

Hopefully everyone has a nice day! (I should be working on my research proposal right now so I'm off. ^^ )

Good Morning, Final Ten Percenters.

Yes, in case you did not tune in yesterday, we moved boldly into the final leg of our long journey and now find
ourselves coasting on through the Home Stretch to Christmas Season 2013.

Today's figures:
Days to the Season: 36
Days to Christmas Day: 78

And with the Season starting Nov. 13, we are nearly down to 1 month to that long awaited point!


Warm and very humid yesterday, with rain.
Windy last night, with small branches down.
Now, this morning we have awakened to chilly temps (59) and the promise of below normal temps ahead.
(Roller coaster weather, I call it.)

But regardless of your weather, you have a Terrific Tuesday, OK?
