And so the story goes...

Ah, my dear visitors (both of you), it's been some time since I wrote anything up here... What has happened in the meantime:
  • I quit working for ad agencies. To cut a long story short, advertising is not my cup of tea, as I finally admitted to myself and to others concerned... The money is nice, but my life is more important than that.
  • At present, I am working for a lighting company (setting up lights and such for movies and other video production). Long and irregular hours, money is not bad, lots of time off... I like it.
  • Six months with Helena... I like our relationship, no matter what people may say. I do have some concerns about the age difference, but we'll see...
That's it in a nutshell, I really can't be arsed to write now.....

Something's not right...

I feel wrong these days... I should probably be happy with my life, but I am not. One might say that I am living a dream, given the circumstances. Got a job that many would desire, all is fine and dandy.... Right.

Living a dream is not bad, of course.
That is, if it's your dream.

Through early morning fog I see
visions of the things to be
the pains that are witheld for me
I realize and I can see...

Scratch that :)

Just a day after my last post, I got a call from an agency where I applied for work, asking when am I available to start! So, as of Monday, I shall be going to work again! Never thought that saying that would make me happy...

Follow up

When I was getting on the bike today, I saw what was the 'electrical problem' that plagued it... Last time I went to the shop to replace the speedometer, they didn't put everything in it's place, and the front brake light cable got caught in the steering and got damaged... wait, that's an understatement. It was almost cut in two, and the exposed wire was shorting out the circuit, hence the odd fuse problems every now and then...
Well, at least now I know what was that smell. The problem that remains, however, is that the alarm is acting up again...

It's never-fucking-ending!!!!!!

And more...
Went to the shop to solve the smell problem, and then I saw that two (out of three) bolts that hold the engine in place were missing!! Left the bike there, let them sort it out...

Status Quo / SNAFU

Still jobless, still searching... Bah... What a summer :( lots of time, no money to enjoy it...

Cats are fine, Mia's has healed completely, jumping and spinning around like before the fracture, Braca is still a lazy bugger :)

The bike is running fine, which means constant trips to the mechanic for some small repairs - last was the speedometer, and just as that got sorted, the electrical system started acting up. Oh well...

Transmission


Just stumbled upon a nice 3D applet demonstrating the inner works of a motorcycle transmission. Take a look at it here. Originally found here, but the link died...
EDIT: link is alive again...
EDIT 2: both links are dead... ah, the everchanging Internet...

Coincidence

A few days ago, I went to the local DMV, or Traffic Police, to take a friend to pick up her driver's license. While waiting for her, I ran into a lieutenant that I served under in the Army - I was very happy to see him, we exchanged phone numbers etc, and arranged to get together when he comes back from his holidays...

Nothing special, one might think. And one would be right. However, today I went to get my motorcycle license at the same place. While I was waiting in line, I ran into a major from the same unit. I served in a town in Montenegro, (come to think of it, that town will be in a foreign country soon enough) and this is all very very strange. Seeing two officers that I hadn't seen in almost 10 years, in a span of maybe 10 days... *play x-files theme*

Hotrods

A guy approached me today with a story along the lines of 'hey, how does that bike of yours roll?', a situation that happens more or less often. What was unusual, or annoying, was that he started bragging about his scooter that is soooo great that regardless of the fact that it has just a 50cc engine, it can do XXX km/h... Then he proceeded to elaborate on how much aftermarket stuff he put on it, and how much money he paid for it, while stressing that it is much more than I spent on my bike. I suppose he expected me to fall to the floor and bow in admiration????

His first (OK, second) question for me was 'do you do wheelies?'. I responed to his monologue with a blank stare, not knowing what to say. ('Hey, dude, get in touch with the ground', or 'I don't understand Serbian' or 'I don't give a fuck about your inclination to go crazy on your over-tuned moped'). A similar situation occured a few times earlier as well. I don't know if they expect that i start to drool and cum at their stories or what... Perhaps it's me, maybe I don't understand all that... Maybe my street cred will go up if I answer correctly to their questions ('Yes, i can wheelie for 83m and do a 15m stoppie, and all that while I'm smoking a pipe with my right hand')??

Of course I enjoy riding a bike, but this kind of approach seems a bit hot-headed to me...

Spring

OK now, these days the temperature has climbed to teens, and the ladies have already started dressing like it's in the 30's... That's generally allright, but when you see a girl, that is just plain or average while in winter clothes with a not-so-attractive face, showing lots of skin, you end up confused...

Mali, what's your take on this, you are the expert on feeling confused?

Change

Just changed a setting, now all posts are visible, not just the last 7.

Capital punishment

Gotta share this... Blogger had some problems, and this is one of the notification messages from their support:
Some users are currently getting “403 Forbidden” errors when viewing their blogs, and “Permission Denied” errors (or variations thereof) when publishing. You may recognize this problem from Monday.

The offending server is being replaced and then shot. We’ll let you know when things are back up. Shouldn’t be too long.

Until then, affected blogs will be unavailable and unpublishtoable.

Update, 5 minutes later: All fixed!

Cookin'

Since I've had my kitchen set up, I made creppes (out of 10 or so, I destroyed 7 or 8, and 2 or 3 were actually successful) to break in my stove and cookery, and today I made spaghetti, which were quite allright. Nothing spectacular, but me is pleased. Goodbye fast food, I can finally eat properly. Still not sure if that means I'll gain or lose weight, but I will definitely be happier :)

Oh, and let's all wish a warm welcome to the one and only Dex Norton G!!!! Yaaay.... (this is where y'all observe the APPLAUSE sign and clap your hands off)

John, mate, έλα ρε μικρέ, wake the fuck up!!!!! Τι πρέπει να κάνουμε αν θέλουμε να σε δούμε εδώ;

Aaaalrightythen. Back from work at the new office. Seems quite allright, very serious company and all, looking forward to doing some interesting work for a change :) Turns out that some folks I worked with before are working there... small world, I say!

Anyways, I feel like watching a film, so off I go...

What's new?

I don't know where to start, so I'll just pour it down as it comes...

Work
As of tomorrow, I will be working in a new company, Leo Burnett. That came as the result of me being informed that, since my client left for another agency, my services shall no longer be required. Oh well... Luckily, I found the new job really quick.

Home
As I am writing this, a painter is in my kitchen finishing the walls, and carpenters will have the kitchen ready next week, so I will finally be done with that part. Closet in the entryway is in place, so after I pay this bunch off, it's on to the room floor and furniture... It's neverending, dammit!! Bah... one thing that makes it easier to bear is the mental image of the finished works...

Life
What life? I have no life. I do try every now and then, only to come home unnerved. RL sucks. Check this thread at PcGamer forum out.

News

Well, as you can see - I've transformed this section of the site. All the old posts are in (took me 3hrs to enter them into the blog). Anyways, more changes soon...
