First Day of Work.

Written May 30. 2000, at 15:30 GMT.

Today was my first day of work in England. Actually I should have been working yesterday also, but yesterday was a UK banking holiday and Stína had a day off her work, so we spent the day walking the Tooting area (Southern London). We looked at things in Indian shops, bought (Indian) groceries, cooked great food at home, and then watched Jack Nicholson movies on TV and drunk some nice wine offered by Angelo.

Today I started digging into the huge pile I have of unread CHI-WEB mail. I'm doing good. Still I estimate that I have about 20 hours left of reading and following interesting links. I plan to distribute this work evenly between my work hours and my private time.

I brought my computer home the day before yesterday and got it running. Unfortunatly I'm still unline (I'm saving these entries locally and will post them as soon as I get online). What I need is a phone cord from my modem to the wall socket. and a permit from Angelo to use his ISP connection until Friday when I get my own phone line and cheap ISP access.

Now I'm on my way out to run some important errands: Have the locksmith fix the front-door key he made for me last Friday (it never worked!), try to find a phone cord (there were no "dull" stores open yesterday), see if I can find a PC cord for my digital camera (I want to take pictures!!), and go to Easy Everything to send some e-mails and stuff...

When Stína finishes her work today (18:00) we're going to meet Steve (my mom's guytm) for a chat and a beer and stuff. Really English, in a pub and everything.... Now I just have to figure out what the place is called where I promised we'd meet him...

Argh! Panic!
