The good, the bad and the Ambassador

Whewwww....finally, Friday! And what a relieveing one it is.

Monsieur Hennessy Ambassador was in town for 3 days and i pretty much had to organize 3 events in about a week. There were some highlights and definitely some low points but it's over now and i survived. On a negative side, i've been so stressed that i've had to sleep with rubbing painkilling ointment on my back to be able to sleep and i've cried a little. On a positive side, the first event on Wednesday went a lot better than i feared. Since there are too many people to rain on my parade i'll have to praise myself and say it was actually a nice event and the ones who attended were pleased and many of them even thanked me sincerely.

Somehow, i have to grow a thicker skin and an ability to not take everything personally. If someone else effs up and that affects the overall outcome, i should be able to blame it on them, however, i take it all in and weep like a baby (in privacy of my own car or home, of course, no need to show my momentarily weakness to anyone else).

Well, whatever, since i said i'll take anything but disaster...i can say, i've succeded quite well. Next week will be nicer.

Confide in me

Different people have been confiding in me lately. Not even my close friends but people i hardly know. They've told me their stories and their secrets and have found a listener in me. Sometimes, when i hear about someone's worries, it makes me sad too. It takes a lot of energy to keep people's secrets. Plus, it's hard to keep track of which secrets are to be kept.

We all get hurt by love
And we all have our cross to bear
But in the name of understanding now
Our problems should be shared

Confide in me

New toothpaste

I bought a new toothpaste and squeezing it, what do i discover, its pink/white. Pink toothpaste, can you believe it. It looks awfully cute on my pink/white toothbrush. For some reason it really pleases me.

Btw, have you noticed how thorough and insightful my posts are lately:)

Darkness falls

Today was the first day i went to work and left the office in darkness. I did start and finish a little earlier/later than usual, but still, it was a bit unsettling.

Fatboy Slim: The BPA - ToeJam

This is probably the best video of the year. It's been around for a while now so many of you have probably seen it but it's still worth sharing:) Always amuses me :)

Greetings, Earthlings, from Copenhagen!

Well, not really. That's what i meant to write a couple of days ago, but luckily i was too busy in Copenhagen to be sitting around, typing away at my computer. Coenhagen, Denmark was a new addition to my list, YEY! I've added a new country to my collection. I believe there are 30 now (29 by Facebook count and 30 by world66 count).

It was business at first and pleasure later. I can't write much about Cop, because i have to save my creativity for my article, but i will add some pics to tell my story, but generally it was lovely, Christiania was still there and i spent some really nice time.
