it’s Thursday again which means it’s time for Thinking out loud lovely Amanda from Running with Spoons is generously hosting. I must say that I am enjoying these posts a lot. Not too much thinking about what you say, how you say it and no wondering if anything is worth sharing. For me it’s the ultimate answer to the never-ending question: How the heck do I get all the gibberish out of my mind? Answer: Just thinking out loud. It’s like free therapy. You have to try it!

So here we go…1.While I was recovering from the cold (I so hate being sick) I managed to work from home luckily. I love to work from home! You don’t have to get out of your pajamas, you can let the TV bubble in the background, you don’t have to answer the telefone, nobody want’s anything from you…just you and the computer cozily cuddled on the couch with a cup of (disgusting – I’ll talk about that later) coffee. I even managed to finish my presentation besides a few little charts I needed to make in the office as I don’t have the necessary program on my home computer. Later this afternoon I will show it to my colleagues and ask for their feedback. Fingers crossed my supervising professor will like my progress…
2. You know me…what’s the ONE thing I can’t life without? Yes, coffee!
My coffee machine decided to annoy the hell out of me by producing good-smelling and good-looking coffee that basically tastes like crap! And I mean crap in the way you would assume a wastebin tastes. And even meaner one time it tastes quite alright, next time it’s like dishwater with a soapy aftertaste. My husband didn’t want to replace it as it’s only a year old but after this morning in the car when it was really not tolerable anymore I finally put my foot down and we’re going to get a new one. FINALLY!!!!! Have you had this problem with a coffee machine before? I mean I am really maintaining it – cleaning, descaling… I bet it’s something personal….
3. I am half through Emerald Green the last book of Kerstin Gier’s Ruby Red Trilogy. Though it’s basically a book for teenagers I love it a lot. It’s about time travelling, first love and saving the world. Great stuff Perfect for cuddling on the couch with another (crap) pot of coffee! Who can blame me? I am an addict – I had to take my chances!
4. It’s only 10 days until our Kickboxing class. YAY!!! My coach arranged two classes for us with a friend who is a certified kickbox trainer. Can’t wait for it! Before I got my thrombosis I enjoyed a few classes at my gym. Hands down I’ve never been more exhausted in my entire life. And I loved it! Then I had the thrombosis and whilst having to take blood thinners my doctor and I thought it wasn’t the best of ideas to get hit on my head during exercise. So I had to quit. But I’m so ready to kick some asses now
5. I am so looking forward to go back to the good old UK that I started over with the Miss Marple movies again. I’ve watched them before but I love them every single time! Margret Rutherford is just so unique!
Here’s some Margret Rutherford Trivia: Did you know that she was actually married to her film partner Mr Jim Stringer (aka Stringer Davis) and that they had an adopted son who was one of the first people to undergo a sex reassignment surgery. And she won an Oscar for her role in The V.I.P.s in 1964. The Oscar was sold by her housekeeper who forged Margret Rutherford’s will after her death. The Oscar never turned up again.
Okay my dear friends – I am up for a coffee and some data analysis now! Have a great Thursday
