I'm starting to count the days till I go to Madrid. My flight leaves from Venice on the 4th of September so there is still some time but considering that I will be gone till February I'm starting to get very exited and anxious. One second I can't wait for September to come and the next I'm deadly scared of how it will be - I have been told that this is absolutely normal. so far everything is going as planed: for now I managed to finish all the bureaucratic stuff (have you ever seen Asterix conquers Rome when they have to go into the house that makes you crazy to get form A38 - that's how I felt) last week a found a nice girl who is going to live in my room in Vienna during the time I'm gone, I have booked my flight and handed in my learning agreement to UAM. For now this is all I can do. Some incomings from Madrid told us that you better go to Madrid and look for a flat there, if you do it over the internet you might end up with 5m² without a window. They also told us that it's going to be a lot harder for us there than it was for them here. In Vienna exchange students are treated with white gloves - everything is organised for them and even all the classes are in English (one of the guys I spoke to is in Vienna for a year and is not able to speak a proper sentence in German). Not so in Madrid - all the classes are in Spanish (I have no problem with that I'm going there to improve my Spanish), there are no books or handouts for the lectures (I have no idea how I will be able to take notes guess I will be making fast friends with the people in my classes and borrow there notes) and every professor treats you just as he/she would do with a regular student. Does sound kinda ruff - therefore the incomings did tell us which courses are the easy ones and which we shouldn't take. so now I signed up for things like ingés aplicado para la empresa and stuff like that *gg* not very challenging but I'm not going there to work my ass of for some courses that I won't be able to transfer onto my Austrian University. Anyway now I'm again really exited and can't wait to go.....

okay so apparently last night when one of my flatmates came home our cat found the courage to venture into the stairwell again (she was a little timid during the last weeks, we did, by accident look her out and she was all alone in the dark cold stairwell for a couple of hours - she was not happy) anyway, she ran out again and, as the experienced hunter she is caught a mouse in under 5 minutes and cased it (again) into our flat. the mouse tried to hide under my others flatmate bed (the room is accessible through a cat door) who was soundly asleep. our cat that still doesn't know what to do with a mouse beside play with it did just that and woke up my flatmate. she is by now an experienced mouse catcher and pried the mouse out of sasha's (the cat) mouth and set it free in the hallway again. sasha was a very unhappy kitty after wards. still she had her fun and spent the rest of the following day sleeping in the sun (i want to be a cat in my next live)

we seem to get quite experienced at the whole mouse and cat thing - nothing too exiting - just the same old or was it because this mouse didn't have squeakers formidable courage and character?

i just noticed that i'm quite fond of the word experienced tonight ;) - i will have to think about that.

i don't get this fuss people make about the new year - nothing is different. Each year on the first of January i sit still and listen waiting for something extraordinary to happen but nothing does - i wait for another week or so, still expecting something. Then i give up not caring any longer - at least it takes another year till madness returns.

My pirate name is:

Iron Ethel Bonney

A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

squeakers died. my flatmate found him dead the other morning. we don't know if the cat finally killed it or if he died of "natural causes". The cat is very sad - she misses her new play mate.
my flatmate buried squeakers in a flowerbed in the park.
he was a very brave mouse.
we are going to mourn him.
we will miss him (well, the cat will miss him more than we do)
good by squeakers - may karma be good to you and you will be re-borne as a cat.

we have a mouse in our flat. our cat cased it into our flat during one of her expeditions into the stairwell several days ago. the good thing is we have a cat to catch the mouse - bad thing is the cat can catch the mouse but she has no idea what to do with it. She thinks little mouse guy (by the way is name is Rudi "squeakers" mouse) is her new best friend and she really likes to play with him. i somehow don't think that the mouse shares this opinion. Especially as it is by now well acquainted with the inside of our cat's mouth. Thing is our cat has never seen a mouse before and has never learned what to do with it so she doesn't know how to kill it. squeakers on the other hand is very well aware of reality that mice and cat's normally don't get along very well so he tries to run and hide at every possibility. He actually developed quite a personality as a fearless mouse we considered naming him Rudi Bond as James Bond seems to be the theme of this week. But Rudi Bond sounds, as my flat mate pointed out like James Bond's retarded half brother and if anything squeakers is not retarded, fearless yes, to the point it's stupid even. Last night my flatmate was woken up by them playing (the cat and squeakers). Well the cat was playing with the mouse, squeakers was scared shit less. She managed to catch the mouse and put squeakers in a box with air holes to keep him save so we could get him out of our flat and into a park or something today in the morning. But squeakers is quite inventive. He escaped though one of the air holes in the box and when my flatmate opened the cupboard where she put the box so the cat wouldn't get it squeakers jumped out of the shelf in a totally james bond/matrix/mission impossible kinda way and blurred under the wall unit where he is currently hiding. We renamed him after that he is now Rudi "squeakers kamikaze" mouse. Our cat loves him. She hasn't been so well adjusted in a long time. She will miss him when he is gone. If we ever manage to catch him again and he does not escape again. :)
