Pirate Kriatyrr & Odessa

Preparing to face the mundane again.

 

Up before six AM. Breakfast, tea, etc. Kaos-kun and I left shortly after seven. Got to the subway and found out that the trains don't start running until 8:24 on Sunday mornings (and the bus we need to catch is at 8:10 from the bus terminal). So I call a taxi, and we get there with plenty of time to spare. An extra 204 kroner isn't that bad of an expense if it's to catch a plane. So we enter the bus terminal, and the bus isn't listed at all - but there's one an hour later. It should still get him there on time, I think.. the original plan was to be there two hours before departure, and one should be enough to check in and go through security at a very small airport.

Now that I'm home, I see what the issue is.. here are the timetables - we used the PDF timetable, which lists that extra departure that doesn't exist. What fucking morons. Bastards. Liars.

I just finished knitting the headband a few minutes before Kaos-kun got on the bus. It was a bit too loose, but I'm hoping it will shrink when washed. :P

Really, if we had known that bus departure didn't exist, we could have waited for the subway and saved those 204 kroner. Or got up in the middle of the night to take the earlier bus.

Now I remember why I hate using Torp.

The past week has been awesome. It's been incredibly fun, and I'll miss Kaos-kun a lot. Now we both have to face the harsh reality of going back to work tomorrow.
I think I'll go back to sleep now, and maybe update later.

It's the season for creepy-crawlies.

 

Late last night, a wasp up past its bedtime annoyed me, and as it was most uncooperative, I clobbered it, maiming or killing it. I never found the body, though. Today there was another one in my room, but as I was more awake and alert, I did the old cup-and-cardboard trick and released it safely outdoors. Also, this morning I found a scary-looking spider in my room, but it turned out to be a scared spider - the kind that feigns death if anything touches it - so it was easy to get it out.

Also last night, I saw the first slug of the year.
