which Austin heroine

I love Jane Austin so I couldn’t help myself

I am Elinor Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

You are Elinor Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are practical, circumspect, and discreet. Though you are tremendously sensible and allow your head to rule, you have a deep, emotional side that few people often see.


 The funny thing is that my (younger) sister got Marianne Dashwood, the younger sister. Funny since the first time I saw the movie-version of the book (well, it was the series actually) I called my sister and told her she had to see it cause we resembled those sisters a lot. And when she saw it, she agreed.

Hmm… a crust on my burnmark, shouldn’t that have healed by now?

*headache* OUCH!

*meets old acquaintance*
*finds out something about my sister*

*customer who speaks without ever breathing shows up*

*eternitycustomer stays until I have to tell them we are closed*
*customers who don’t even buy anything lifts down chairs from the table and sit down to talk*

*notifies the customer sitting about an inch from the sign that we are closed*

*Late, blushing ellen gets help from workmates to count checkout*

I don’t have the strenght to do the dishes today.
I don’t have the strenght to write a proper blog today.

Kiss me

I didn’t have to work today, so I got to work on the request I had gotten. I loved singing this song just as much as I thought I would!


Burned my arm on a hot plate in the café today. I thought I would scream, it hurt so bad! Comforted myself by getting sushi take-away. Honestly I can’t really afford it right now, but sometimes you need to ignore money-issues and just enjoy life.
 It wouldn’t be much of a life if you didn’t.


After sushi I went through some mail and online-stuff. I’d gotten a request to sing  Six Pence None The Richer - Kiss Me. I love that song! It reminds me of summer and long, bright nights. Honestly I have a couple of requests waiting for me, but this will have to pass them. It’s such a great song! Maybe I’ll have time to record it on sunday?


Today was market eve in my home town so we were open an hour longer than usual. A lot of work led to my break running a “tad” bit late, but at least I got one. (At one point I did wonder.) Last hour it calmed down though. I guess the weather (rain and cold) had some part in that.

As usual I was craving something sweet, so today I got Strawberries. I love to eat them just as they are (well rinsed, but that’s all I do).


I can never get tired of Strawberries, I l♥ve them. I even wear them on my shoes this summer.

strawberry shoes!

Café and 2nd hand

I’ve been working 5 hours in the café today. The café is the most stressful part of the job for me. I never seem to manage to close on time. Somehow I still manage to clock out in (good) time though. Probably because I have workmates who help me out. I like my workmates! 
I’ll be working a lot in the café during summer so I do hope I get faster with a little training.

I’ve been buying clothes 2nd hand online and today I picked up the package that recently arrived. My sister keeps nagging me about “going out” only I can’t wear a sweatshirt or hoodie *sigh*

front …and back

What do you think about this one, think she’ll accept it?
It took some time to get a shot that showed the back, I got a lot of pics of my neck though. You really shouldn’t watch close-up of parts of your body. Now I have weird complex-issues about my neck.

The day ended in a good way with my latest addiction; FruitDanish
M did say it when I brought a bag for the 3rd day in a row:
-The café isn’t good for you, ellen
I’ll be rolling instead of walking before this summer has ended


I’m sorry!

Wow, it’s been ages since I blogged properly. Probably because the more time I spend here, the more I miss HKO. And I miss HKO!

Please bring it back, pretty please!

Anyways, I’m hearing words about HKO getting closer and closer to opening up again, so maybe I dare start blogging for real again?
 I’m svamped at work though, so I won’t promise to much, but I’ll do my best. I do miss my blogging as well after all.
