Life in Paris, my universe and potentially everything

What a weekend

Well – after almost a week of having the dishwasher I can only say this: worth every cent it cost (ok, it wasn’t my money, but still…). Work has kept my pretty busy during the week, but at least I finally made it to the Ciné-Cité in Bercy again on Friday night and went to see Spiderman 3 (after missing I don’t know how many movies over the last couple of weeks). The movie turned out to be “just what the doctor ordered” for a Friday night, i.e. nothing unheard of but good entertainment and nice special F/X – what more could you ask for?

Saturday I finally got around to have a second go on the replacement of my notebook’s hard drive, and since I was “better tooled” this time it finally worked, I’ll spare you the gory details here, but it was one of those “don’t try this at home things”. The evening saw the first actual going out I’ve done in weeks since I finally mostly got rid of a cold that proved to die a lot harder than I would have liked, but so I followed an invitation by Christian (this one, not that one) to a barbecue and clubbing night on the “péniche” Le Quai, which also came as an excellent reminder that Paris is just a great place to live during Summer.

Speaking of Christian, he managed to be the big news on Sunday: on the way back from Fontainebleau he had an almost accident with his motorbike (thanks to some moron car driver he seems to have overlooked him) but fortunately managed to catch/stabilize the bike by putting a foot down which bought him a partially fractured bone. While that does of course suck, I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am nothing worse happened to him or Paola who was on the bike with him – I’d rather not think about what all could have happened and can only hope he’ll recover in as little time as possible.

And a completely unrelated topic: my new boss and one of the new colleagues from mentasys are going to visit the offices here tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to this, it should be quite interesting and also provide a few answers to open questions, some of which might also have an influence on the question where I’ll be after my current contract here is terminated (so far it says end of this year – let’s see…).

Oh – and one more thing: some funny crap I just came across. Certainly not everybody’s humor, but even though I haven’t seen 300 IMHO still good for a laugh or two (“This is Cake Town!” :) )
