Carrot Cake

First cake I made in a gas oven. First cake I gave a chocolate finishing. And the best: it is delicious!!! Yammmm ...

Things to remember

If you want to get money from the UK, do not wait until they get back to you again. You have to call them and tell them, that they have to do something, i.e. working on your case again. And I really have to be carefull in order to get the money I am entitled to. And to all those people outside, who have their phones defaulted to "do not send caller ID": I hate invisiblo calls! Particularly if they hang up, after I picked up. What the ... ?!?
What you also ought not to forget: London is BIG! No not big it is BIG, HUGE, B I G. I guess one must either work in the centre or live in the heart of the city for at least six months to be able to say you know one hundredth of London. I still didn't encounter every inch (and not even the interesting ones!) of Vienna, though I have been living there for three years in total.

Today I got my NI (National Insurance) Number aka NIN, which is valid for lifetime! Wow! I even will get a card in six to eight weeks. The interview on Wednesday was wonderful, except for the distance. Everything was perfect! Money, tasks, the guys who interviewed me were nice, but the travelling is just not possible by public transport. My longing for a job grows every day, because I need money and I want to do something. I really enjoyed post-processing my pictures from today. Yesterday I reapplied at a company which I wrote months ago for the first time. They are not that far away, but it still would take 45 minutes. I am pissed off though, because so many employers do not even write you back. So you never know. They might call me in December, when I am close to sitting on the street or booking a plane back home. NOOOOOOO!!!!! That won't happen. I get a job. I get a job. I get a job sooooooon. Maybe I get the promised jobseeker's allowance in December? But I don't expect very much. Oh my! Council Tax! #~&@‹€∞§¶$%
I recently started to read The Da Vinci Code. It is thrilling and very interesting, because it contains many facts (I guess they are ...). I am trying my best to not imagine Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou looking like the main characters. Ngah, I am tired. I cannot continue right now.

Good old days

I just started to play Command & Conquer again. It was one of my first "real" games on the computer. No, it WAS my first game on the computer. I was in elementary school if I remember right. There was Paint and Word. And Command & Conquer on the PC of friends of my parents. Now it runs on my Mac. He chokes on the graphics every now and then, but he's doing good!

I also did not that bad. I have no idea anymore what I have to do, but the mini tutorials tell you what you can/have to do. Suddenly, as I knew what I have to do and click, my phone rang and I got another interview on Wednesday. In the middle of nowhere. Gonna be a long journey! But I am really not complaning!!! I have one day left to figure out how I get there quickly. Oh my, I want to playyyyyy!
