来英国整一个月纪念   17 comments

     来英国整整一个月,做了不少事情,终于让家有了家的样子:
  • 买家具,还有一次顶着鹅毛大雪去的宜家,冷的要死!多亏了中国同事们,没他们我无法安装家具~三个房间东西还真不少。
  • 买电器,安装,跟argos这个烂零售商N次打交道,被搞得很崩溃,以后再也不买了幸好
  • 房屋维护包括插座,中央供暖设备,漏水的地方维护,也很折腾
  • 联系英国电信(BT)装电话线,BT真是BT的公司!初装费122磅不说,电话线安了两周都没搞定,工程师预约三次才来!还敢收取我费用,要是在法国,用法语估计骂都骂不清楚!好在现在咱改用英语骂了,哈哈,彪悍的态度才可以得到满意的解决,在这里绝对是真理啊!
  • 联系o2提供网络,赞效率与服务!外加赞其手机业务!价格便宜量又足!
  • 联系各类Utility缴纳水电气费和council tax,门道真多!还不如国内直接垄断算了!否则五花八门的计价方式搞得我头晕脑胀~
  • 钻研厨艺,以至于多人问我为什么在给我电话时我总是在做饭……确实啊,没有网络的日子里,做饭就是我的业余爱好了^_^
  • 整理房间,打扫房间-每天扫地拖地整理摆弄,也算是一项娱乐吧,还有减肥作用呢~
  • 上班。弹性工作制,一般八点多到,4点-5点间走人,一周干满37小时就可以了^_^
  • 假惺惺的学了几次法语,不过每次看书就犯困-_-…
  • 养成好习惯,每晚十点多十一点就困的不行,睡觉休息了~嘿嘿原因嘛,就是没网络咯~就跟进了戒毒所一样没精打采滴~

      不过有网无网最大的区别是:

      有网前有很多时间,都不知道该做什么事
      有网后有很多的事,都不知道什么时候做…… 哈哈哈!
 
      我还是得少呆在网上,多做点实际的事情,最近计划有
  • 健身中心的健身课程,明天开始
  • salsa club的舞蹈学习,就在家附近,所以要坚持很容易,每个周三
  • 准备去college报个一年的西班牙语学习班,九月才可以开始……有点远
  • 再参加一个belly dance的课程,四月开始

     本人接受群众监督呀^_^

     一个月了,留个爪印蜗牛

囧外国人的逻辑 & 赞Susan的星座预测   25 comments

到了英国,遭遇了两次逻辑shock!写出来让大家乐乐,还真不知道是他们逻辑太强还是我逻辑太弱……

1. 某次去宜家买家具,中午在餐厅吃饭同事点了意大利面但是没要西红柿酱,我想钱都花了那我要好了。于是出现下面的对话:
我:我要单独要那个酱
厨师温柔的说:不好意思,我们的酱不单卖,是散在面上面的。
我说:我知道的,可是刚才我朋友没要,那能不能用小碗单独给盛出来?
厨师依然很温柔:不好意思,我们的小碗是专门用来卖汤的,你要一碗汤么?
我:!@#¥%……&*……不用了。Baring teeth
厨师一脸无辜的看着我:还有什么我可以为您效劳的么?
我:……Confused

2. Towncenter有家餐厅(厄……为什么我的故事总是跟吃的挂钩……Tongue out)每周四晚供应印度餐,价格便宜量又足,所以一般周四晚上我不做饭,就去下馆子^_^
餐厅有推出一系列的印度菜,还有一种是为了让广大客户一次性可以品尝多种印度菜而准备的四个小碟子,盛的四种不同口味的菜。这个是性价比最高的,于是我和同事就点了两道这个菜。
点完没多久,同事回来说,服务员告诉他这道菜就剩下一份了,我们需要另外点分别的。菜单上别的都有。
我一看菜单,我们想吃的四种都在菜单上,都可以单独点大分,可是为什么小份就不可以了呢? 难道是餐厅碟子用完了?不可能啊
真搞不懂为什么不可以把大分菜拆分成多个小份@#¥%……&*(!!!

号外: Susan Miller的星座预测真的无比的准!今天去翻看了一下,第一句话就很震撼:Your home will be a major focus in February. Surprised

接下来基本就围绕着房子展开,哇哈哈,完全符合我现在的情况呀~Susan还真的很少这么专注的就一个方面分析过,感觉就像为我而写^_^
If you are up to making changes, whether large or small, you’ll be thrilled with the results. The solar eclipse that occurred last month on January 26 brought your home, property, and family-related plans to front and center of your life quite rapidly, so you may have already started to draw up blueprints. (26号左右就开始策划买家具,搞装饰,宜家都跑了三四次,时间基本吻合)

As you enter February, you may begin to see important opportunities to make your lifestyle closer to the way you want it to be. Last month Mercury was in weak, retrograde motion, but happily, you can make solid plans now that Mercury will move ahead February 1. (终于有机会亲自挑选所有家具和装饰了,爆开心~ 家里也开始初现原型了^_^等彻底弄好就上PP给大家看看^_^)

摘抄几句:
You may also want to check with an electrician too, to be sure your new upgraded space’s circuitry will be support many high tech items like flat screen TVs, new kitchen appliances, computers, and other such electronics. If your building was built several decades ago, you will want to make sure your sockets can handle the additional electrical demand you will place on them. (这个月我打交道最多的就是电工了,安洗衣机,换插座,装电话线,换电话插座……还买了N多的家用电器,还有同事送的TV)

Your home life seems to be very connected to what is going on in your career, and you will see this to be true at the month’s major moment, the lunar eclipse, February 9, operative plus or minus one week. You may need to relocate to accept your new post or it may be that your new job will allow you to upgrade your standard of living. (太准确了!没公司的福利,我是不可能住上那么好的房子以及有钱买家具滴~~)

While all of 2009 will be special for improving your living situation, February will be your best month of all, for you will have the support of so many other planets in Aquarius. If you need to do something difficult, such as to move across country, do a complete renovation, buy a house, or save your house from foreclosure, this would be the month to have talks, make applications, or draw up concrete plans, as the case may be. Realize that you don’t have to actually finish things, but it surely would be the right month to start. (那可不么,我可不是跋山涉水的跨国搬家,2月开始进入新家装潢的么?)

现在一切都在进行中,家里没网络,等有了网络再多多上照片^_^
各位周末愉快!
