kaiserkuchen: (GOT! JON SNOW HAS ALL THESE FEELINGS)
ATLANTIS, VERSION TWO: COMMENCE.

Thailand is currently experiencing its most intense flooding in recent history. It's all but reaching catastrophic levels, in terms of scope at the very least. As of today, SIXTY of 77 provinces have been affected in some manner, with 12 severly affected (water above 3 meters and counting) and 17 critically affected. Over 2.3 million people are currently affected, with over 252 dead. Most of our dams are operating at peak or more capacity, which means that along with the flooding caused by rains alone, you also have the water that needs to be systematically released downstream to deal with.

I've been tweeting intermittenly about this since the flooding situation has really started getting worse here and is now kind of affecting me directly (always makes a thing different, doesn't it), but it has actually been ongoing since about July and I've mostly just discussed it with local friends and my family before. But the last few weeks and most importantly DAYS have shown that these are not the usual floods that are a yearly occurence in Thailand. Quite frankly, and what many are saying is that it's never been flooding THIS much before. People are used to a certain amount of hardship because of the floods, but it seems that now we have a perfect storm of the recent string of tropical depressions hitting SE Asia back to back, the monsoon rains from the rainy season and just not enough planning for effective waterways and deforestation over the years all culiminating into the epic shitshow that is going on here. We're not a country used to natural catastrophes-- now (military-backed) coups, on the other hand....--, so people aren't trained to make the "right" decisions, to evacuate instead of stubbornly staying in their houses with their possessions (again, also understandable) and this makes all the rescue and relief efforts all the more difficult.


(flood footage starts after ca 40 seconds. The aerial shot is just stupendous)
The water is UP TO FOUR METERS HIGH in parts of Ayutthaya. 80% of that province is under water, and Lopburi, Singhburi and other low-lying provinces like Ang Thong are equally hard hit. At first one worried about the Northern provinces and they had had some pretty nasty floods earlier in the year, flash floods from the mountain rivers, some mudslides, but now it's Central and pretty much the rest of Thailand's turn. Only time will tell how long it'll take us to collectively drag ourselves out of this mess, and I can only hope our politicians get their heads out of their useless, corrupt asses to tackle this matter effectively. The military at least seems to be acquitting itself well in dispensing aid to people, I must admit. But what Thailand really needs to wake-up to after this is the fact that you fucking have to think of the enviromental factors when you plan/build things, especially in a country with our soil make-up, with our history of flooding. Our ancestors got it right, but of course greed makes you do other things instead. We're all so very short-sighted when it comes to this kind of planning and it is so, so completely frustrating to hope that this will change soon. Ugh.

But just to reassure everyone, we're fine here. Our province, being one of the surrounding ones between BKK and Ayutthaya is flooded, although the worst has thankfully still left our mooban and house untouched. The communities near the klongs and river are a whole 'nother matter though, and the flooding on the roads around those areas meant that I am inadvertantly stranded this weekend, as my tiny car wouldn't have been able to make it through the wall of water. Luckily Dad's Ford can still hack it, otherwise getting to work on Monday and the following week will sure be very interesting for all three of us. The next doomsdate that people are fearing is the 11th, when we're expecting the next amount of water to come down from one of the big dams. We shall see. Now that the waters are starting to rise in BKK, people there are suddenly panicking and emptying all the supermarkets etc of food and stockpiling. Everyone was counting on BKK to stay unscathed and now they're all rattled out of their "well it's upcountry. Not affecting me, tch" mentality. I mean, to give credit, people have really been donating a helluva lot and helping with the relief efforts but the last heavy flood that BKK had was over a DECADE ago. Bangkokians never expect to have to deal with such things.

The worries about the dams and if we can drain enough of the water through the dykes into the sea kind of feels like the BKK of The Wind-Up Girl now, I have to say XD.
kaiserkuchen: (GOT! Tho honestly I ship Dany/Happiness)
I still consider myself relatively lucky for stumbling into GoT fandom so relatively late in the game (ie. early this year-- February, I believe). This meant that I had a tasty backlog of 4 books to sink into over what was probably a too short period of time (my obsessive tendencies, let me show you them!) and when that was done, the HBO version to ooh and ahh over and "only" a few months of wait for this fifth book.

So without further ado, some thoughts!
SPOILERS BEYONDDD )

And now for bedtime so that I can repent for today and go to the gym tomorrow (my careful schedule, fucked!). Hopefully not through pouring rain, though it seems like the entire country is under water at the moment. Certain provinces in the North have been flooded for the 4TH TIME this year, this is just unreal and fucked up. And on Thursday I was caught in such a downpour on the way home that I was basically crawling at 60kms/h on the fucking Expressway with a visibility of about near zero. That was some scary shit :///
kaiserkuchen: (Ron! I feel this urge every single day)
This post should have been posted earlier, but I got tired yesterday and then I embarassingly lost about SIX HOURS obsessively watching SYTYCD clips on Youtube and reading TWOP recaps. UGH AWESOME DANCING <333.

It still strikes me as very strange that this is it for the series. When the last book came out (and ooooh, how I bothered my mother with my nervous yammering if she thought that Chiang Mai's bookstores would have Book 7 and WHAT WOULD I DOOOOO if it wasn't so, oh I couldn't even bear the thought etc., etc.,)  we still had a bunch of the movies to go and now? C'EST FINI, this franchise. Who wants to start laying bets on when the reboot will occur? I am so prepping my "back when I was in fandom" lecture for hypothetical future spawn or grandkids.

OH and I queued for 43 minutes to get my tickets (went by fast as I had my freshly bought copy of Tina Fey's Bossypants to keep me company. Did my fellow queuers stare at me weirdly for laughing to myself? Well yes they did, but I didn't give a fuuuuuuuuuuuck :DD). Probably not as long as y'all in the States/UK with your midnight viewings though! XDD
POTTER POTTER POTTER (WEASLEY WEASLEYYYY!) )
And this still remains the best part of the first Deathly Hallows movie, or at least to me one of the most memorable ones. THE GORGEOUS ANIMATION, AHHH.
kaiserkuchen: (Hawaii Five-0! LOUD NOISES)

Mostly seen alone, as I am apparently not European or at least German enough as my friends have informed me to see that a) going to movies alone is weird and hints at friendlessness and b) going to see movies during the way is just a waste of daylight. FIE ON YOU ALL I SAY and anyways, watching movies during the day when I am in town, have no one to meet up for lunch and no real desire to spend most of the afternoon actually eating my way whatever shopping center I am in (always tempting though!) is an excellent way to pass the time and not spend TOO much money. Even if ticket prices are getting horrendous and admittedly, it does suck when you have no one to discuss the movie with later. WHICH IS WHY THE INTERNET WAS INVENTED, I GUESS.

X-Men: First Class: Currently seems to be the fandom flavor du jour (at least on tumblr) due to no small part to the beautiful and epic romance of Charles and Erik and Fassbender and McAvoy's portrayal of them and why yes, I throughly enjoyed my viewing (having supressed just how horrible Kevin Bacon attempting foreign languages sounded) and am still tempted to watch it a second time as long as it's still playing here. Super super gay and super fabulous (60s!) and I admit that my biggest thrill in the X-Men movies is still seeing all the mutant characters and their powers. And the casting in this movie was eyecandy galore-- I do agree with the general consensus that January Jones was weirdly wooden as hell though, but visually I felt she was spot on. I refuse to believe that (SPOILER) is dead though (and how quickly into the action-y bits of the movie this occurred. WE WERE ROBBED), and thankfully there is enough fic to fanwank that into something acceptable for me. Also I ship (SPOILER) with Havok like burning, accept no substitutes. Anybody want to talk to me about the epic fic for this fandom they've read? I've mostly been reading along on my blackberry's eensy screen and man there are some amazing ones out so far <333. PS [livejournal.com profile] taurenova  I'M STILL WAITING FOR YOU TO DE-ANON those two WIP!Fills of yours ahhh I am so enticed by your constant twitter mentions about them already.

Killing Bono: A movie I went in knowing nothing about besides the fact that it involved Bono, was set in the 80s and had Robert Sheehan & Ben Barnes with Irish accents. The latter reason was sadly just about enough for me. Such a sucker for nice accents I am, yes. The movie was surprisingly good though I did spend most of it with my hands in front of my face from intense embarassment squick as Ben Barnes' character seemed to make BAD LIFE DECISIONS, like momentually horrible, no-good ones with every damn breath he took and shit kept piling on him. But it was sweet and funny and Robert Sheehan as the long-suffering brother was cute. The best part has to have been the music, which was fucking fantastic (I had no idea Ben Barnes could sing, and could sing THIS well. Color me impressed, Prince Caspian!)-- my favorite has to be "Where We Want To Be" but "The Great Beyond" and "Kicking Off Again" are also great.

Super 8: Another movie I went in on a whim and was very impressed by (barring that ending ughhh cop-out to the max! WHAT HAPPENED AFTERWARDS, I want to know). I heard that Coach from FNL was going to be in it and had a vague idea of the plot, but I wasn't expected to be so wholly charmed by the story and the kid actors and their character's relationships. The movie they were filming!Their improvisations and epic squabbles! Elle Fanning was seriously adorable and will grow up gorgeous, sheesh, but it was the main kid (Joel Courtney) that impressed me the most. I wasn't expecting the dead!mom angst to start with though, which was again a bit of a "whyyyyyyy movie, whyyyy with the dead mothers" and I quite possibly over-identified a bit with the grieving process he was going through but his acting choices and just the whole thing was spot on and felt so real.

HARK! A BOOK--- Deadline, by Mira Grant: The second book of her Newsflesh trilogy (Zombies! Bloggers!) and it was just a compelling read, if not more so than the first. Keeping it vague as not to spoil, but we have Shaun Mason barely clinging to his sanity and dealing with the huge events at the end of the first book and uncovering what looks to be a bigger conspiracy than they ever expected with the rest of the End of Times crew.  This one ends with just about a big a twist ending/cliff hanger as Feed did and now I just can't wait for the last book to come out next year, ahh. THOUGH SERIOUSLY, people who have read this, tell me if this is just my finely honed incest-googles tricking me or is it basically now confirmed canon that the Mason siblings love each other that way? Because I couldn't quite believe the book would go there, but apparently it is so and I think that's great <33. Them against the world, baby!

RANDOM LINKS TO ROUND THIS OFF: THIS EPIC VIOLIN COVER OF THE GAME OF THRONES THEME SONG. I have been remiss about blogging about it but tl;dr: LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT and I cannot have Dance with Dragons in my hands too fricken soon ahhh is it next week yet?? An excellent article about fan-fiction by TIME aaaaaaand this wonderful THOR fic: Sigyn (binding is not punishment). That ending, fuuuuuck! Also: I totally ship it now.

kaiserkuchen: (ETC! My productivity summed up)
NOT A SPOILER: I LOVED THE BOOKS and was utterly consumed by them for large parts of February when I read the first book and then March when I somehow managed to finish the other three available books in what felt like two and a half weeks. It was glorious timing that I was subbing for England that time and actually had nothing better to do at work, because otherwise I would have been in a world of not so delightful sleep deprivation.

--------------------------SPOILERS FOR ALL THE BOOKS---------------------------------------
Somehow I never got around to typing this entry up so everything is vague and *handwaves* and I have smooshed it all together in my brain )
--------------------------SPOILERS FOR ALL THE BOOKS---------------------------------------



A Game of Thrones, S1x01:
cut for thoughts! )

And ughhh, just to complain but damn if HBO isn't being super zealous in shutting down all the streaming links I have tried accessing via sidereel.com to check out the second episode. I NEEDS THIS, PRECIOUSSSSSSS. Speaking of TV, I also got to watch most of Glee S2x18 and again, I seem to need to selectively pick and choose what I want to acknowledge from this show.
The only straight I am is straight up bitch. )
kaiserkuchen: (Community! SO CHANGRY INDEED)
I have again fallen into the trap of forsaking LJ again (RL! READING ALL THREE REMAINING SONG OF ICE AND FIRE BOOKS IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS), though at least I have been pretty up to date on Twitter and my actualfax agenda-keeping so I can actually remember what I have been spending my days doing and there is proof that I have not reverted into an antisocial hermit.

Some links that have been perking my mood up lately:

YOUTUBE:
Thailand's Got Talent: One-handed Guitarist ...Filed under: Amazing and inspirational things that make me tear up. And now with English subtitles for your edification, too (there are even notes on the dialects! And the song lyrics! I can't even). His relationship with his older brother and what he says in the end about how if there's another life, he wishes that they'll be born as brothers again because he still owes so much to his older brother? AUGHHHHHH ;___;. This is the kind of thing that I would normally be watching on TV with Ma, or have her send me a link on YT.

Thailand's Got Talent: Belle Nantita ...Wait for the 1:23 mark. I LOVE IT (imho a better rendition than the original versions) and I just adore the crowd's and judges' reactions of glee and amazement. She also passed through that round, it case it wasn't obvious already XDD.

Tex Perkins & Murray Paterson- "Beautiful Kate(Main Theme)" ...found this from random tumblr stalkage, such a lovely and haunting melody.

Glee - BIG ASS HEART ...YES I HAVE A LEGIT EARWORM FROM THIS SONG. Such a catchy beat and I'd rather have it then say, FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY lol.

Graffiti60 - Stare Into the Sun ...I spent most of the song mistakenly thinking that the lead singer was a suddenly very young and svelte looking Nick Lachey and as such being very impressed with how groovy and great the song was. This band is pretty damn good, as it turns out. Good on you, fake!Nick Lachey!

FIC:
Only the Best by maderr on the AO3. Filthy hot Green Hornet porn.

F*cking Machine by Icka M. Chif on the AO3. MOAR Green Hornet fic. SERIOUSLY, UNF.

this famine that carries me by [livejournal.com profile] nevcolleil. Inception/RED. Frank Moses is Arthur's father. Here are three times Arthur's crazy-ass family scared the crap out of Eames (and one time when he didn't mind so much). .....SO MUCH YES TO THIS.

The Case of the Interloper by [livejournal.com profile] imogenedisease. Inception/Sherlock (BBC). “What if I told you I knew the world’s only consulting detective?” Eames asks.
“I’d ask what the fuck that is,” Arthur says, and Eames only answers with a huff of laughter.
...I laughed so much through this brilliant fic and its equally amazing sequel, The Case of the Extraction of England. Arthur meets his match in Sherlock and is amusingly furious and FULL OF RIGHTEOUS >:((!!-face for most of the time. Fantastic character interaction and just the idea of Sherlock in the dream-sharing world? AMAZING (and scary like hell, ahhh).

ETC:
Alex O'Loughlin interview&pics from InStyle April '11 ...how is Alex O'Loughlin EVEN REAL?? This man is amazingly charming and lovely ugh I cannot deaaaaaaaaal <333. ALSO HIS CLOTHES-SNOBBERY IS ENDEARING.

...tomorrow I will try to write an actual post of text and substance, but the actual minuscule coding for these few links has tired me too much lol. /A FAILURE AT BLOGGING AND THE INTERNET
kaiserkuchen: (SPN! Derp derp Jared)
UGH WORK, STOP GETTING IN THE WAY OF MY INTERNET FUN TIMES (THIRTY CALLS AN HOUR. EVERYTHING IS HORRIBLE). So uh, dreadfully sorry about the immense delay between saying that I would make this post and actually doing so!

Without further ado, the high-res versions of my [livejournal.com profile] yuletart 2010 The Hunger Games art for [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny and a mental exercise in thinking up merchandise, Capitol-style: a paper doll version of Katniss Everdeen and three of her canon and ~fashionable fitting outfits~.

It probably goes without saying that drawing this was SO. MUCH. FUN <33 )
kaiserkuchen: (Community! AND THEN WE ALL DIE)
My first week of being back on the job since the 9th of December last year is behind me now and I have got to say that barring getting to see my ladies (and dude, can't forget M, our lone XY chromosome-holder in the group) again, IT WAS A LOAD OF STEAMING SHIT. I thought it was all in my head at first, that I wasn't used to the workload any more, the way the calls seemed to pile up but I counted along and we are back to the level of having a call come in every minute for about 95% of the work day. I am still lucky that most of these aren't the negative yelling-and-insulting-your-intelligence ones, but it is only a matter of time. In the interest of keeping my sanity up, I have implemented the usual coping-strategies without shame again, fuck my statistics: delaying the moment of picking up the phone, spending a bit of the post-call processing time eating snacks and uh, sometimes just hanging up on the callers for accounts that piss me off. These little rebellions are still a drop in the ocean though, since deep in my heart I normally like to follow rules and normally feel very guilty about these things.

We also have a new girl R, who I am still formulating my opinion about, but the current forecast seems to be rough since she pings all my dirty-hippy-backpacker prejudices and that just makes me automatically affect a more disdainful and stuck-up version of who I normally am. I KNOW BACKPACKERS ARE MOSTLY VERY NICE PEOPLE but man the ones that I have talked to that keep yammering about how their way is the only ~true way to experience the REAL Asia just keep getting my hackles up. Also perhaps we are too jaded but I. told me that R also has some pretty naive expectations about her working life here and ahahahaha we'll see. We kind of have an unofficial bet going for how long she's gonna last.

BUT NOW FOR MORE ~*FANDOM-Y NEWS*~:

[livejournal.com profile] yuletart reveals went up a few days ago and I can now say that I was behind the following The Hunger Games paper dolls! I remain pretty pleased with how it turned out, and again, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] laliandra and [livejournal.com profile] laulan for being my usual art betas! Am not at my own computer at the moment, but I'll put up an actual post soon with the HQ versions as I did make them to actually be playable (well somewhat. At the very least, they're supposed to be nearly A4-sized!). My gift art this year was the following SMOKING HOT CAROLINE from The Vampire Diaries (season 2 spoilers!) by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny, who was also my own recipient lol. BASICALLY I WAS VERY PLEASED BY THIS YEAR'S YULETART and it remains one of my favorite yearly art fests ♥

Here are also some awesome vids that I have been linked to and have been obsessively rewatching:

Cupid's Chokehold by [livejournal.com profile] nel_ani. Hawaii Five-0 Steve/Danny goodness, AHHHH ♥. I need to download this onto my laptop so I can watch it every day for that shot of pure happiness, ahh. Such clever use of the clips to the lyrics, too-- I just keep alternating between cracking up and sighing contently.
Runs in the Family by [livejournal.com profile] kaiyote. Supernatural and a total MOOD SHIFT from the previous vid. Fantastic song choice and look at the fucked-up angels and again, excellent use of clips and sharp, rapid cutting. I particularly adore the editing of the "fill me up" (all the sex and in between it all, Cas gorging himself on food) and "knock me up" (ANGELS WILL MESS YOU UP) parts. Also, it reminds me that Misha Collins is fantastic at all those different weary/hopeless/dead tired Castiel!faces.
Sex and Reruns by [livejournal.com profile] greensilver. Community and mucho thanks for Lalface for reccing this to me. I cannot say enough that Community is one of the best shows ever and every one should watch it. How can it be so consistently hilarious and touching, creative and zany and still above all retain such a lovely heart? I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT and this vid just reinforces my convictions ♥ ♥.
Folding Chair by [livejournal.com profile] sisabet. Another Community vid, this time focusing on Annie. Lovely song and OH ANNIE, YOU ARE SO AMAZING AND HILARIOUS AND ADORABLE <33. I had the biggest smile after I finished watching this. And Allison Brie is hot, it has to be said.
kaiserkuchen: (ETC! They be mighty tasty!)
A grab-bag, as again I find myself unable to do these things in a timely manner.

BOOKS!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire + Mockingjay
It's been nearly more than a month since I finished both these books and of course since I didn't take any notes I have only the vaguest of recollections.
STILL, cutting for spoilers for both (but mostly for Mockingjay) )

Feed by Mira Grant
THIS BOOK. Wow. I had heard that it was good, but I did not expect to be so involved and caught up with the plot and the characters the way I was.
ZOMBIES AND BLOGGERS OH MY )

MOVIES!
Chua Fah Din Salai
OH THIS MOVIE )

RED
YEAHHHH )

Kick-Ass
I still can't get over how stupid I find his outfit. Which I assume is the point, but still. )

GUESS WHO SHOULD BE ASLEEP RIGHT NOW BECAUSE SHE HAS HER ~~FIRST DRIVING LESSONS EVER~~ TOMORROW AT TEN AM?


ahahaha.

This weekend has been flying by at a pace that is most displeasing to me. I want more time to loaf about, catch up on fic and yet also finish the books that are tempting me. Have made slight progress on The Demon's Covenant though, and I keep pausing at bits to make happy sighs and/or go "that was so clever!".

I will be posting an actualfax extensive post later (well at least I have uploaded pictures for it), but because I must be off now here is just the trailer of a Thai movie ("Chua Fa Din Salai" or "Eternity") that I am EXTREMELY LOOKING FORWARD TO WATCHING. ANANDA EVERINGHAM + PERIOD MOVIE BASED ON CLASSIC THAI LITERATURE (something I shamefully know next to nothing about) = YESPLZ.

kaiserkuchen: (SPN! Angelic food cravings (C))
The past three days of BKK were filled with ups and downs, of which the downs were documented through that lovely outlet of Twitter. I still have a post in me about that that I might post tomorrow or later, but I feel that it shouldn't be smooshed in with this. Because don't get me wrong, this weekend was also filled with joy and awesome and the fact that I now truly recognize how Dad's actions speak louder than just plain words. HE FEEDS ME WITH LOVE.

One of the only requests that I had coming over was that I wanted steak. Figured we'd just head for a steak-house one night or something, but little did I expect the foodapalooza that was awaiting.

SAT: OM NOM )

SUN: NOM NOM NOM )

TL;DR: HAVING A CHEF FOR A DAD IS THE BEST THING EVER.

TODAY: Well, I was thinking about seeing if I could finagle a last-minute meet-up with someone in the roughly four hours I had in town before I had to leave for the airport, and I am somewhat ashamed to say I went FUCK THIS I WANNA SHOP. And well, shop I did! Now that the haze of intense shopping madness has somewhat died down, I remain quite happy with my haul.

BOOKS READ and MOVIES WATCHED IN 2009

Random and not sorted by month because that is just too much hassle )

In other news, I didn't manage to leave the house today and just tooled around the net forever (I made a giant sticky post for my art though, god that took ages!), but I did finally have a mad cleaning session. Everything is now nice and clean (to an extent), and there are fresh bathmats and dishtowels and sponges and I just about had to take pictures to commemorate this rare state of affairs lest Sabrina returns. I am either expecting her back today or tomorrow, and if she doesn't show I can at least be confident that she might be gone for a while (FINGERS CROSSED). Which makes that fact that she forgot THREE GIANT OPEN BAGS OF TRASH under the sink and the general state of everything in our common area even more reprehensible, but what else is new. fffuck did I summon her presence by mentioning her??
I did make the no less disgusting discovery that her preferred cigarette disposing method is to just throw the butts into old candle-holder glasses or mugs filled with water though. There were three hiding behind the piles of random mugs and dishes that I cleared off when I wiped down the kitchen, and wow does that ever have an ~~aroma. Why would you keep this crap? Does she find the stench of stale smoke and disgusting soup that results in the mugs appealing? I dumped the goop and tried to rinse it out a few times, but the ash has totally encrusted. Have liberally drizzled cleaning solution/Scheuermilch on everything though, and I don't even care that I dumped it all in a pot that she will probably use to cook in.

EDIT: FUCK FUCK FUCK she just came back. Ugh
kaiserkuchen: (Rena! Mine is a BATSHIT INSANE laugh)
2010 is upon us! And has been since a few days already. But since I have just arrived back from ~the provinces~, I'll start counting tomorrow. Still, HAPPY NEW YEARS!! Hope it has been a good start for y'all so far! Expect me finally catching up again and oodles of backlogged and 2009 in summary memes to come tomorrow onwards, since I am fond of the idea of filling things out so that I actually have some sort of knowledge what I spent the previous year doing, curse my feeble memory otherwise.

To sum up, a quick listing of Things Done So Far:

AND NOW ITS MIDNIGHT. My 5 hours of sleep beckon! Will reply to all posts and such tomorrow-- already have stuff tabbed and bookmarked~~
kaiserkuchen: (Norrington! O Commodore)

Have so much to catch up on(FIIIICS, all the holiday fest works to read yessss) and probably only two more hours left, so here is a quick c&ping of some random stuff I had been typing up on MSWord. Can't afford to get rusty after all ;D

Hope everyone had/has Happy Holidays and heyyy it's BOXING DAY~ (what does one exactly do on boxing day besides eating leftovers? I just know that all the shops are closed today :|)

Finished "A Farewell to Arms". ... damn, that was one suckerpunch of an ending. Even had tears in my eyes, the hell.
Next up: Wuthering Heights and french/spanish Vocab! Go mee..

Shopping with Mone tomorrow though in MBK/Siam, yay for shopping again~!

Had nice long chat with Frank yesterday, he showed me their prom pics and uh, apparently I managed to pick out his best friends from all the random pics by my skills in deeming them "hot". XDD
Now that's a useful skill!


PS CFUD is always fun- but now with potential Yagami-kun/Deathnote aktshun plot brewing? Oha :3
kaiserkuchen: (oh noes! ruuuun awaaay~)
Am generally feeling a bit off-colour now, damn hormones :(.

First day of hols, tried to be productive- sat outside and read the book for english plus for a while (Ernest Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms") and get some sort of a semi-tan. This shall be my mini mission for the week, yes yes. Still need to read more that 50 pages of "Wuthering Heights", too. Man, never thought that book would read so ...tediously. Still isn't as bad as "The Great Gatsby" though- hated that book, urgh.

Wanna do something with people here, alas everyone is either gone places or still has school. Wahh. Will call Ginger later to check with her tho. Shall make it a rule to call one person a day that's not related to me, god I need to fight these social recluse tendencies! Argggh.


...also have the burning need to play Kingdom Hearts 2. Am even studiously not! spoiling myself. Wow, so I do have some bit of self-control left, woah.
kaiserkuchen: (Tidus! Eeee!)
Ahhh~ le weekend, how I adore thee!

Spent yesterday evening after com-binge watching "Howl's Moving Castle" and it was utterly delightful, as to be expected from Ghibli films, and eee! The character and creature design- the airships! and Howl's chambers and -! I think I fell in love with Howl in the first five minutes of his apperance, ahh~ so fantastically flamboyant! And not to get in to spoiler territory- but oh! The imagery and how the conflict and curse(s) were resolved! I was a happily sighing mass at the end of this movie ♥

Must acquire the book(s?) somehow~

Also tried a bit of Killer7, which is a wholly different type of visually stunning. But of course, since I have let my trigger-skills go to rust by exclusivly playing RPGs I panicked at the first sign of the admittedly FUCKING CREEPY mutated bomb-strapped cultist opponents and totally misfired. Cue *SPLAT* and my current persona was dead. Man. :(
The concept really is awesome though, am loving the cell-shading and my creepy(an adjective that can be liberally applied to virtually everything in this game) S&M ninja-garbed retainer Iwazumo(?). The way he garbles! Ajkhskklj;!
Fiddled a bit with Lucifer's Call too, nothing much. Need to work up the beasty-training mojo again~

Argh!

School starts on monday! Noooo~ je ne veux jamais travailleeeer *hums the song*!
Also- reading Pride&Prejudice a la Pierre copies just sucks. Now that on page 300something I am actually interested in the outcome of Miss Eliza Bennet and Mr. Darcy, over 50% of the pages is in absolutely shite quality. Why my damn school cannot spring for REAL BOOKS instead I do not know. D:
"Homo Faber" by Max Frisch is ...well. Mreh would be an accurate description of what I feel towards it. "Andorra" war zumindenst besser, nyatch. Still have to read "die Physiker" by Friedrich Duerrenmatt aswell. And the myriad of other stuff on my list...

...why didn't I start earlier? OH RIGHT, I was having fun XD

But before I go (must sleep before 4AM today!):
