The Rory-List: in excel, with checkboxes

Since a new page doesn’t get shared to the people who follow me, let’s create a blogpost: Look I made a Thing!

And the Thing is superhandy and useful. I felt like fooling around with Excel 2016 a bit, so I made: The Rory List, Now With Checkboxes!

The spoils of my UK vacation

So I went to the UK for 9 days. Back home with me I brought a bunch of B’s.





Books! (Duh…)


We spend most of our time Manchester, and I completely fell in love with this city. The openness of the people (everyone was so nice!), the alternativeness (the amount of tattoos and piercings we’ve seen, made me feel right at home), the shops (geekstores galore!), the places to get food and drinks (we had the best pizza with a sunny side up egg, full English breakfasts, a pink G&T, loads of coffee), the museums (we saw a TYRANNOSAURUS REX! And the Manchester museum did a lot of explaining how science is scienced and even had a whole panel on the archeological research of the past being male/white/upper-class-centric, which I’ve never seen in a museum before).

So, when can I go back?

Intermezzo: I moved!

libraryThis is how my librabry looks at the moment. Poor books, all in boxes.

I moved last week, from a 2-room apartment in a village near Nijmegen, back to a a bigger apartment (3 rooms) in an even bigger city: Rotterdam. This is what I have been working towards the past months. I abandoned Bout-of-Books somewhere halfway, because I was painting this new apartment. I did read, as you can see here, but I didn’t write anything about what I read, except for some small notes to be able to write reviews at a later point in time.

Slowly I am getting settled in my new place, and I hope that I’ll slowly be settled in something that vaguely resembles a blogging rythm. First step: get more books from Netgalley uhm skip through all the recipe e-books I acquired and decide to blog about it nope… make new things from these cook-e-books tasty, but not blogging procrastinate in all other possible ways, that is what I am doing allright… write reviews about the books in my backlog! Yes, that’s it. That is what I will do!
