The weather is dragging me down. Im feeling very cold, tired and non-productive. In actuality, I’ve gotten quite a lot done today, even if I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished anything but whining. But let’s try to look at the positives:
– had many annoying email conversations with work colleagues [check]
– posted a whole lot of stuff I sold on eBay [check]
– went to the pharmacy to pick up my prescription [check]
– went grocery shopping [check]
– booked a dentist’s appointment [check]
– confirmed our honeymoon details [check] (Whee just thinking about Rome is lifting my mood :D)
I guess that’s quite a few ticks off my list… oh and we even managed to pop down to the register office to fill out the non-impediment and name change forms.
I’m trying to work out how I’ll handle the online implications of my surname changing in a few months. In regards to my photography, all my prints, interviews, linkage – everything really – is under my current surname. Will it be a bit strange to suddenly be called something else? Will I fall ‘off the map’ in certain circles? I sure as hell am not going to change all my older prints to have my new name on them… that would take forever! Should I just delete everything and start over. 😀 I don’t know. I’m rather confused about it still. Perhaps I’ll deal with the task of changing my name within all aspects of real life first – in Finland *and* in England. Should be a fun little task all in its own…
I’ve been meaning to mention a few book-related sites I’ve joined recently. Here‘s my (still work in progress) catalogue of books on LibraryThing, a place where you can list your personal library – and see how it compares to other people’s reading habits. Revish is a nice little site where you can plan your reading and write reviews about the books you’ve already finished. Here‘s my profile on there. And lastly, BookMooch, a wonderful place to get rid of books you don’t want to hoard anymore, and to get books from others for free. You can see an inventory of books I’m giving away here.
