How 'bout you have a look at me punching you.

I'm still working on getting all of my paperwork-n-stuff in order. Isn't it ridiculous that this STILL isn't done? I've been here for 4 months! I'm more than halfway finished with my contract!

Anyway, the priority now is to get my social security number, then register for health insurance. That's the only reason, really - just so I'm part of the health care system. I'd like to do this for two reasons:
1. Just to be part of a system like this will tickle my little socialist heart pink. -er.
2. Might as well get everything checked out, since it's Free! and I'll probably have only Major Catastophe insurance when I get back home.

In a way, doing all this sort of makes me hope for:
1. An actual accident.
Just to know that I got my money's worth. (Like, 1050 euros worth (150 euro deducted over 7 months).)

Oh, the point of telling you all of this is that I went to the office twice today between classes. Wednesday is my (relatively) busy day, so I didn't have a large stretch of time to devote to waiting in the office. Of course, I didn't actually get to go in a drop off all of my documents. There was always somebody ahead of me; we waited 20 minutes just for the first person to go out; then I'd wait another 15 minutes while that next person was in the office; then it was time to go to class. I guess I'll have to try again tomorrow morning. Big fucking surprise. The second time I went in, I was walking towards the wall to look at the picture, and the lady waiting gave me this pointed, "Ah-hem!" like I was just going to sneak by her and barge into the office without waiting my turn. Back off, toots, I says.
  • I'm downloading the new Built to Spill album right now, so I can't post any pictures. I'm definitely not going to complain about how slow my wireless connection is, but let me tell you: it's very slow.
  • Apparently, it's like a little game for the boys to try to flirt with me. A gross game. In one class today, I asked the kids if anyone wanted to share anything. A boy raised his hand and said, "You have look very sexy!" This was a challenge to the others, so later in that opening discussion time, another kid told me, "My girlfriend is going away to another city for school this weekend." Me: "Oh, does that make you sad?" Him: "No! I am happy so that now you can be my girlfriend!" Me: "I'm not your type, kid."
  • I'm on a mission to send everyone I know a picture of an octopus playing the drumset. If you don't get one from me, that means I don't have your address. Sorry. Oh, and it's the same picture, but sometimes I make it better than others. You can make little trading cards and set up swap meets.
  • To anyone close to a yarn store: I'm trying to get a copy of the pattern for "Lace Leaf Shawl" distributed by Fiber Trends. I'd buy it online, but I don't want to pay more for shipping a dumb piece of paper as I would for the pattern itself. I'll totally pay you back if you get it and send it to me -- I just can't bring myself to shell out 13 bucks for a 5 dollar pattern. Thanks!

Hmm, maybe there'll be something better tomorrow. Good day, sir.
