Hi, I’m Manu.

I used to have a blog a couple of years ago. I have to admit that I missed it a little, so I decided to go back at it in 2014. I write about a bunch of different topics.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, or plothole is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot, or constitutes a blatant omission of relevant information regarding the plot, sometimes even contradicting itself. These include such things as unlikely behaviour or actions of characters, illogical or impossible events, events happening for no apparent reason, or, statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Here are a couple of links if you want to know more about me:

And last but not least, here is my resume.

Thanks for reading.

manic monday


worked a tiny little bit at the lab in the morning till 2pm or so. i went home to grub and cut my hair. yea, i finally couldn’t resist the temptation of cutting it, which means there will be no mohawk for the bal des diplômés… no comment!

then i took the train to geneva with jean-mi to face my fate : dinner with katia’s parents :/ … i was kinda stressed, but after a walk in geneva with katia, i was calm again. guillaume told me that i should buy wine and flowers for the parents, so we stopped at coop near katia’s. the flowers were exactly what katia’s mom likes (nice!), and katia chose some spanish wine which seemed to please mr juan (yea, it’s tough to know exactly what he thinks). i asked myself a couple of times who was more uncomfortable, me or mr juan… anyways, i think it turned out fine, and ms maria wished me “good luck with katia” just when i left, which cracked me up :)

after the dinner, katia went out with her friends while i had a drink with jean-mi, olivier, luis, guillaume, mounir.

i ended up sleeping at mounir’s place… ZZZZzzzzz


got up early, on the slopes round 8-9am… 35euros !! argh… we went to St Gervais and Megeve, lots of sun, but freakin cold wind… my snowscoot wasn’t allowed in Megeve, two thumgs down for Megeve!!… i snowboarded a little too, t’was fun :)… shower at mounir’s… fondue at olivier’s… i pissed him off coz i left with guillaume at 10:30pm to meet katia at the train station to go home to lausanne, oh well…
