Today is not the day for a nice, coherent post - there are too many things going on in my head.
1. Shredders: there is a symbol on our shredders indicating that you must not shred ties or jewellery. Apparently some people conduct their personal vendettas by shredder. A strange and mystifying thought.
Related thought: I hate my job at the moment. It has gone from quite interesting to mind-bogglingly boring. Was I stupid to offer to stay on the extra time?
2. Last night I hardly slept, not sure why. My potential reasons are a bit of a mixed bag: anger at Hungarian telephone company (don't even ask), anger at landlord (no, you can't ask about that either), lingering and, it now seems, unfixable toothache; anger about said toothache, as well as with dentist(s). Called fiancé, which helped. Late night calls are one of the few perks of this transatlantic romance.
3. This article . A hundred people. One hundred people. 8 to 12 tortured to death. Why are people not more upset about this? Is this being reported on?
4. It's spring in Budapest. Really quite lovely. Blue skies and temperature well above freezing.
