since the last elections the political landscape in this country is a shambles. forming any kind of coalition is proving very difficult. also, it makes me feel a little uncomfortable to think about it but apparently i live in a country where 15.5 percent of the voters gave their support to a right wing extremist party.

anyway, on to happier things..
where politics tends to divide us, sports do unite the nation. 12.3 million people in this country (population: 16.5 million) watched the world cup semi-final netherlands v uruguay on tuesday.

totally unrelated, here's an interesting article (not only) for all the librarians on my friends list.



oh and..
no, i'm not dead
we have neither a cat nor a dog
yes, i still read books (even though i haven't updated this goodreads thing in ages)

15.5%? Yike. Still, that needs other numbers to make it meaningful. For example, how many gave their support to a left wing extremist party?

Hey, at least everyone's united about something that has no actual connection to them! (whee.)

there is no left wing extremist party.
on the left side of the labour party there's a socialist party and there's groenlinks (green left, left-wing environmentalists) but neither of them are extremist. oh and there's a very small animal rights party represented in parliament, but they aren't exactly eco-terrorists..

You should update at GoodReads...

And I must ask--- people have been sending rants attacking me to everyone at my GoodReads and LJ friends' lists. Have you received anything? (They did it at LastFM, too)

I can only hope you deleted everything. These people have also posted my personal contact data and sent attacks to my employers.
