Today is NOT my day !!

I had a flat tire on my bike this morning.
So I took the car to work, arriving 20 minutes late http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

In the afternoon I had to do some shopping, and in the middle of the town he car key broke off in the ignition. Couldn't lock the car, couldn't start the car again... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

Waited 2.5 hours for the ANWB to help me out (they broke out the ignition, starting now goes with a screwdriver !! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif)

So I decided to go back to my flat by (repaired) bike... only to find my tire to blow out again some 300 meters before the flat!! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

So I have no means of transportation to work tomorrow http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif Oh well...

To top it off, some of the worst thunderstorms are presently converging above Oosterhout, to die out here... Releasing torrential rain etc. I am really glad I'm living on the 2nd floor (for the Americans amongst us, that's the second layer from the ground floor http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif)...

Jord, waiting for the lightning to strike to really close the day http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif

So how did the move go?

The move went smooth, Dimi. Even with the high temps around here. Start of May and temps of 27 degrees Celsius? My God, what happened to Spring?? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Cheer up Jorden!
Any time you get through a move smoothly you are way ahead.
Pretty soon you will have collected up all the nails beween your new place & work, then no more problems http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

Glad everything (aside from the keys and tires... http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif) went well Jord.

With global warming, does that mean that your regular run of the mill OEM computers will begin to come with peltiers for standard cooling? hehe http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/biggrin.gif

Hey Jord,

Most of us Americans do know what a 2nd floor is. As a matter of fact I live in a two-story house (that's a single family deweeling with a 2nd floor if you didn't know). And why are you being so hard on Americans lately?

Well the basement to my house is called a crawl space and all sorts of pest are under there.

I'm sorry Joel. Didn't mean to pick on Americans, but only tried to be a bit clearer. I think what I live in/on is the 3rd floor ??
