Doesn't seem any sweeter to me than coke or pepsi.

A lovely day! Today is the start of the second week of holiday (we have like a month off ) and I seem to be getting back on track with reading after a devastating slump

To vary it, I'm having soymilk (capuccino flavor).

Are you becoming a Red Bull addict? I like the taste of Red Bull, but for some reason it's VERY expensive here.
I'm pretty sure I didn't have Red Bull yesterday... Anyway, there's a whole case (now missing 2 cans) waiting so don't be surprise if I'm redbulling for days straight

Is there anything cheap in Japan? I got this case (24 cans, locally made) for roughly $9. At this price I'm tempted to get another one

(I'm an addict to diversity, unlike someone here who has Bombay Saphire every single night )

I didn't like it too until recently. Suddenly it turned super tasty

A bit more... Caffeine, Taurine, Glucuronolactone, B-Vitamins, Sucrose, Glucose and Alpine Spring Water. It seems that the Taurine combines with the Caffeine to produce some extra physical response that caffeine and sugar alone don't do, (or so it was explained to me.) I can drink Coca Cola til it runs out my ears and still go to sleep. But one bottle of Red Bull and I'm moving on all eight cylinders for the next few hours! I really can't attest to the physiological reasoning behind it, but I'll swear to the results it has on my bod!


Stitchawl
That's why I always have some cans in store in case anything comes up and I have to stay up late. The idea of stuffing sugar in my body at 2 am isn't a nice one, but it does keep me going.

Now, what are you talking about? the sweetness is just about right

Disposable hand warmers. They are as cheap as rust...

Time for a late evening cup of hot water, then off to visit with Winken, Blinken, and Nod. Or is it The Pony Man?

Cappuccino in my cup, nicely complemented with a 'koffiekoek' (don't know the English word: coffee cake? viennoiserie?) which I made myself last night, in class

We had a pretty 'rough' weekend. We want to move to a cheaper apartment near our piece of land so we can save some more money. Saw something great this weekend, but when we called to tell them we wanted to rent it they told us another couple had already signed the papers ...
When we told our parents, they said they would be happy to take us in for a couple of years. They live nowhere near our future house, but the 'rent' they ask is just ridiculous! If we move in with them, we can save 1000€ each every month! So that's at least 24.000€ just in one year, and we could really use that money for our house. It also means no household chores while we are building!
Of course, we'd only have one room, hardly any privacy, going to work will take us a lot longer. And we'd have to hope our cats and my parent's cat will get along ...

So we really don't know what to do. Any thoughts? Advice is more than welcome!

Guess it depends on how well you get on with them. Can you try it for a while and get somewhere else if it doesn't work? You could use the excuse of needing to be nearer your house block to save hurt feelings.
