Am I too old to have an invisible friend?

I used to have invisible friends when I was very young. That is a long time ago to my perspective. I wish they were still around...

Sunday morning

I slept in - didn't get up until just before eight. Made a pot of tea, some sandwiches with cheese and cucumber, found my book. Been stretched out on the sofa, reading and drinking tea, for some two hours - I should do this more often. And now that I realised what a wonderful idea it is, I will go back to do just that.

I feel productive

I have so far today done laundry, cleaned up after yesterdays cooking, cooked lunch for today and made a lunchbox for the week to come while I was at it, cleaned up after that, covered a canvas in paint (though it is far from finished), read for an hour, drunk four cups of tea (and two of them de-caf, before you ask), and cooked and filled another five lunchboxes. Although I just got five hours of sleep, I feel strangely active and awake. Must be spring approaching, don't you think?

Oh, and other things happening:
Iditarod has begun.
I found a picture of a happy-looking basking shark.

And today...

One year has passed. One year of living here. It's been a great year!

Credit goes to (in no particular order):
Infraljud for (unknowingly) celebrating the anniversary with me last night
SR and the team at work for giving me a chance to grow
Syf for long discussions about random things at night
My mother for bringing me ginger ale and for cat-sitting
And Linus for being an endless source of good company and entertainment.

No thanks, I'm trying to quit

I have for a decade been an online news junkie, reading newssites in several languages. I have had periodic breaks, but it is harder to quit that habit than to quit smoking! I have not given up however, and my first goal is to limit the number of sites I am reading - and be critical to which those are. The reason for all of this is of course the unbearably low quality of content on said sites...
