Must... eat... brains

I've been awake now for 30 hours straight. I didn't know I could do it, but to be honest, I never wanted to find out....
Anyway, my mobile phone is now FINALLY communicating with my Bluetooth-plugged laptop. The firmware upgrade for my phone cost me 15 Euro's since my warranty period had ended 3 days ago. ARGH! I swear... I'm gonna be late for my own funeral.

Just four more days until parents are visiting again, meaning I'll be quite busy with cleaning and ironing until then. Dad just called me and asked if I could find them a nice hotel here in the village so they don't have to drive home late at night after The Lion King. Mmmmm, dinner and a musical. I can really use the distraction by now.

The Da Vinci code is a super read. Hard to put down, it's chockful of facts you never thought about (Why is Friday the 13th concidered an unlucky day? And did you know the word Hermaphrodite is a mix of the greek god Hermes and the goddess Aphrodite?), and it's fun! Check this out:

"She is lovely, no?" The agent motioned through the windshield toward the Eiffel Tower. "Have you mounted her?"
Langdon rolled his eyes. "No, I haven't climbed the tower."
"She is the symbol of France. I think she is perfect."
Langdon nodded absently. Symbologists often remarked that France - a country renowned for machismo, womanizing, and diminuitive insecure leaders like Napoleon and Pepin the Short - could not have chosen a more apt national emblem than a thousand-foot phallus.

I've been wanting to get The Da Vinci Code, a friend of mine said it was a good read. That quote seals the deal. lol
