Comments Off on how to decide where to go for lunch

Can’t decide where to go for lunch? Then nominate a time to leave work. Nominate a side of the street to walk down. Walk until you encounter your companion. Then eat where you meet.

This weekend past I decided to take a cake to the social function I was attending. Having had a busyish morning I did not have time to make anything myself, but I knew of a cake shop where I would find exactly what I wanted: the closest thing I can find to a cinnamon babka […]

My workplace was broken into over the weekend. And if forced to experience a break-in, it might as well be like the one here. Nothing was broken. Nothing was stolen.

the last class

I just finished my last class in my first semester as an MA Communications (by coursework) student. All over. Well, except for the final piece of written work. As usual I shared the train ride home with Peter, the lecturer. Initially I found this to be really odd – what are the boundaries? Answer: the […]
