...where does the freaking time go, ughhhhh. A lot has happened since I last posted, and that wasn't even a "real post". Don't really feel much up to a detailed recap so here are random bullet points.

-work still enjoyable, semi-quiet lulls interspersed with STRESS STRESS I AM ANNOYED BY THE DESIGNER TEAM THEY VEX ME AUGHHHH STRESS
-house dry now, water's been gone for 2-3 weeks and Dad and Sue have been speedy in getting everything in somewhat fighting shape again. Tentative moving back date sometime in Jan, though of course the entire ground level is gutted and will be empty for a while. We even had new ceilings put in, hopefully the mold won't return. Might be pretty hardy, since the house was under 2-3m of water for 2 straight months.
-Ma's one year anniversary came and went without me breaking down into a useless gibbering heap too badly-- Dad was thoughtful enough to take me out to dinner that night so that I got back to the hotel room late and tired, and the next day I went and made merit with my aunt and uncle and spent some time at their house, where I got to see my grandma and the cat. Khun Yai still skinny, cat still FAT lol. Ex-stepdad didn't post anything about the date on FB, but he "liked" my status about it. WOW.
-speaking of moods, I have been up and down and all around these past few weeks but it's in times like these when friends and your remaining family can be so wonderful and lovely. I would go into more whine and cheese about how I seem to have gotten more anxious about a worrying amount of things when I have the time to think about them but I can't be bothered at the moment, hah!
-christmas eve was spent at a friend's party with my int'l school people. On paper it sounded like a kids party (but with tequila and baileys) but in reality it was awesome. Christmas day was spent making my other friend feed me (muslim friend & hotel kid brat unite in not really seeing this holiday as a family thing lol), watching the Swedish Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and being introduced to the amazing world of REVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENGE. Awesome. Eps 1-4 down, now gimme moaaar.
-in Europe I always thought I was too Thai to really fit in there. Now at work I realize that I am not broadly Thai enough to really fit in w/ my colleagues-- though this is different when I'm with my international school friends, who are themselves either Thai or half-halfs. Specialized identity it is then! Also then I will just own the fact that people don't expect me to own the sometimes unnecessary nuanced conversations in the office lol and here I thought I was passive-aggressive by European standards. This isn't to say that I am not enjoying my office and colleagues though, this is just something I've been trying to articulate to myself.
-SO MANY PEOPLE IN BANGKOK UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH CROWDS WHYY.
-should probably look into mirroring to DW soon but this is something I will ignore until I have constant net at home again. I miss comment subject lines though! UGH

...anyone have any decent end of year memes to pass around? I haven't had the time to really look.
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 )

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. )

Well okay, I've technically been back since Tuesday and didn't even make a holiday hiatus post in the first place (I HAD ONE PAINSTAKINGLY TYPED OUT ON FUCKING LIVEJOURNAL MOBILE ON MY BB AT THE AIRPORT, but of course that shit never works when you try to post ughhhhh).

So! Recap: I was in Hanoi, Vietnam meeting my dear old friend La from the 4th to the 8th of this month. Vietnam was quite the experience and not as empty as we feared over Tet/Vietnamese New Year. It was actually more like, INSANELY PACKED AND LOUD lolol and it is always weird for me to actually have that touristy feel of not understanding a single word of the local language when I travel. Most of the time I did either speak some form of the languages there or it was possible to kiiiind of guess at word meanings, but Vietnamese really was beyond my ken lolol. We had lots of awkward and/or random conversations with shopkeepers, waiters and our receptionist guy and muddled through everything. It's also the reason we sometimes ate truly strange and not really ~traditional Vietnamese food~ as planned, as we'd either inadvertently want to order breakfast foods at dinner, order things that were all out and as a result just randomly point at some of the weirdly translated food listings. Fact: THE HANOI BEER IS DELICIOUS THOUGH. And I say this as a person who normally really dislikes beer!

Will be working on uploading pictures soon and of course have all the postcards to sort out for people :DD. Everything was pretty cheap and I didn't really buy much besides an extra small poster, so I kind of went crazy with the postcards instead. The propaganda poster-based ones are simply so amazing!

...and I'd write more, but my eyes are nearly welded shut on me rn and I just wanted to at least post something on LJ again. LATERS, MY PRETTIES <33

PS AHHHH SO MUCH TV I AM TRYING TO CATCH UP ON! HAWAII 5-0! COMMUNITY! WHICO! GLEE! Re: that last one-- I take it back, my one true Puck pairing is now Puck/Lauren. MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR REALS, GLEE CREATORS. She is just unbelievably awesome. And we are getting more Kurt/Blaine action! Was halfway cringing through the GAP serenade bit, but I like Blaine's veneer of ~always knowing best~ being chipped away and him and Kurt approaching more equal footing with each other. AND AFTER A BIT OF PLOT DEVELOPMENT, MOVE STRAIGHT TO THE MAKE-OUTS PLEASE. It is becoming kind of weird that Blaine gets all the Warbler numbers though, as much as I love Darren Criss and his performances, this does fly against the Warbler borg motto of ONE VOIIIIIIIIICE and all that. AH WELL.
kaiserkuchen: (STrek (C)! Red means go faster)
Thanks to what I figure is the swirling morass of germs I call my office, I ended up sick for most of the weekend. Delightful hacking cough, headache and wooziness, the works. I actually went to bed at 10.30PM on Saturday and woke up at 8AM the next morning, which is just all kinds of disturbing. Felt well enough on Sunday for a movie with the ladies, but couldn't be arsed to go to work today so I figured I'd call sick for once. First time in nearly 4 months of working here, so even if they suspect this is less than honest, I doubt I'd get any flack for it. Though have totally learned something of vital importance for next time. DEAR SELF, REMEMBER TO CALL IN SICK THE DAY OF WORK, NOT SUNDAY NOON BECAUSE FOR SOME REASON YOU THINK "GIVING ADVANCE NOTICE" IS SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD. Took Ma, D. and I. going "how stupid are you??" for this to finally sink in, but ah well.

Have spent this day reading far too much fic and actually more than half-heartedly cleaned my apartment! Still doesn't change the fact that I really don't like it here all that much any more. So glad it's just me in here and I will never have so show any one the premises XD.

SOME TV THOUGHTS/SQUEE/RAMBLING NOW.

Community S2x05
Ice-cream is everywhere, but never on your thighs )

Supernatural S6x05
How many t's are there in Pattins-- )

The Vampire Diaries S2x06
I should be having vampire burnout, but apparently it hasn't set in yet )

Dexter S5x05
Julia Stiles will always be Kat in Ten Things I Hate About You to me )

...and heyyy, that was more blather than I thought I had in me. Huh.

PS coughing so hard you give yourself headaches sucks. But then I look at my new CPine icons and I feel slightly better. HOW CAN THIS SHOOT NOT IMPROVE ONE'S LIFE. Can't get over that first pic, hello wallpaper at work! There better be some way for me to get my hands on this magazine here *plots*
kaiserkuchen: (TVD! Damon is Not Impressed)
This would've been a super cranky entry full of whining and general feelings of ~unease BUT I got to skype/call my parents earlier and perhaps most importantly talk to ♥CARMEN♥ after nearly a week and a half so now I am actually in a good mood again. It was great catching up and our moods continue to magically synchronize. We are apparently both in the throes of this weird wishy-washy and niggling feeling you get when you're not exactly "content" or happy with the general direction your life is taking, and not quite sure what to do about it. Well okay, in my case I am just in front of a large and blinking question mark and I am mostly psyching myself out with thinking up negative scenarios and also experiencing the usual YAY LET'S SEE PEOPLE and NO IMMA BE A SHUT-IN simultaneous social activity dichotomy that I sometimes go through. And I kind of am balking at the amount of packing I still have to do in these two weeks. TL;DR CONCLUSION: TIME TO SACK THE FUCK UP, SELF *rinse, repeat*
[EDIT] hah I got over myself and am meeting Daniela, then Wido on Monday and [livejournal.com profile] nebst(♥!) for the first time on Tuesday. YAYYYYY <33

BUT TO GET BACK TO MORE FANDOM-Y things, have caught up with SPN and TVD! Ahhh, and both episodes that make me ever so antsy for it to be next week already~

SPN:
"They're Calling My Name" by [livejournal.com profile] secretlytodream is short but packs an epically creepy punch. The way the already quite unsettling song fits together with the editing and the coloring choices and ahhh fuck THAT ENDING. THIS VID AHHHHHH.

Supernatural S5x16
HEAVEEEEEEEN IS A PLACE ON EAAAAAAAAAAARTH )
Supernatural S5x17
I have had an earworm from this song the whole day already )

TVD:
The Vampire Diaries S1x17
Gosh this show is so addicting )

STAR TREK:
One of my greatest cliche loves is the genderswap trope, and to a large extent because I admit that I am fascinated by the thoughts behind visually adapting a current character's look/design and what their clothing/hair/body would translate to in the opposite sex. Obviously I expect that there should also be a bit more thought put into it if say, one were to write a genderswap fic, because man I think everyone has read one of these really simplistic and veering into insensitive and insulting depictions of "girliness"/"manliness"-- but just purely speaking on a shallow and pictorial level? THIS and HIGHSCHOOL/UNI!AUs are like my favorite things ever <33

Which is basically a long intro into the fact that [livejournal.com profile] oxboxer has made some brilliant ST genderswaps that are full of personality, with the added bonus of being ~fashionable ones that use actual clothes assembled together from Polyvore as a reference. SO GREATTTTT AHHH I LOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE.
The DUDES (Girl!Spock is perfection and I want her outfit, and okay that is a statement that can be taken as a blanket one... though perhaps not Kirk's. Even if it is SUCH AN INSPIRED CHOICE ahhhhh ♥) and the LADIES (DAAAMN Male!Uhura is hot~ and the reference for GUYLA is hilari-awesome)

This show is intensely HAPPY-MAKING AHHHH )

Oh and I went over to Carmen's for some quality trashy German TV-watching (MODEL WG FUCK YEAHHHH). We planned to try and make a banana walnut cake using my rice cooker as it was described in the little recipe book that came with it. BUT FOR SOME REASON it turned out to be mostly just uncooked banana walnut goo, with only around 1/5th of the cake being actually solid. Which I, being in possession of a stronger stomach than Carmen, of course ate as well as some of the goo before the sheer amount of butter separating itself started to gross me out. It was delicious, but man if only it were done. We wasted half a kilo of banana and nearly 200g of quality walnuts on that! My stomach still feels fine, though I feel like I am hallucinating the feeling of being surrounded by a cloud of buttery smells.
kaiserkuchen: (STrek! I MAKE GOOD LIFE CHOICES)
Time should just continue to exist in a molasses slow or limbo-like state until I manage to get all the shit I need to be done completed, okay?? Went to bed waaaay later than I was supposed to, but the fantastic skyping I had with Miss C and Andy was way more than worth it ♥ And of course the funtimes watching German TV shows of dubious quality with Miss Olga and nomming on her food that occurred beforehand.

White Collar S1x09

Sherlock Holmes
I still need to see this again to bask in the glory of RDJ's brit accent )

Oh, and before I forget- here are some great links:
__ The Uniform Project. 365 days, 1 dress. The sheer creativity and style in each picture so far is stunning, and there are a lot of nifty touches and ideas that you can adapt to wear yourself... AND it's a project for a good cause, which is just added awesome. I'd recommend checking it out in monthly view, for extra added impact.
__ If there ever is a movie where these three play brothers, the universe will implode from the hotness ...I mean, I think RDJ is the "weakest link" if compared to the freaky way that JDM and Javier Bardem look alike, but I could and would totally buy the idea that they could play blood-relations.
__ Jon Hamm's John Ham I have always wanted to see this fabled clip from the first time that Jon Hamm hosted SNL, and now I have finally found a version that isn't on hulu or some other vid platform that hates me. HA-HA :Db And I just love Jon Hamm so damn much, okayyyy ♥

LASTLY: CHECK OUT THIS EPIC KRIS ALLEN PICSPAM by [livejournal.com profile] pettyscenes. HOLY SHIT, THIS IS A WORK OF ART *swooons*, with A+ commentary.

Everything else is loading so slow for me, ahhhh man I still have Project Runway, Community, Friday Night Lights and Vampire Diaries to go... Will I get anything else done today? HMM HMM HMM. At the very least one of my cover letters is done, and I just have to get everything finished by Monday so I can send everything, or at least a big bunch of them off.

I SHOULDN'T BE AWAKE NOW. And if I must be awake, I shouldn't be in front of the computer, but since I am, I might as well be productive and make a post.

It is still asstastically cold in Vienna (-13 degrees Celsius a few days ago when I WAS OUTSIDE, and -7 today WHILE I WAS OUTSIDE, TOO), but I still have errands to run tomorrow. The TOEFL Test registry place will hopefully be taking my money (ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY EUROS UGH THESE RAT BASTARDS) so that I can register to give this test a whirl come January 30th. Might as well see how much ass I can kick at it, nearly everyone I know was been skeptical why I want to do it, but seriously. I can say that I am basically a Native speaker of English and that it was my first language until I'm blue in the face, but unless you talk to me in person, you can't tell for sure just by looking at my stats on paper. I'm either an Austrian or Thai citizen, depending on where I am applying, and the subsequent fact that neither my ~technical~ mother or father tongue is English. Which is where the TOEFL test would come in! I bet the hardest part for me will be concentrating for FOUR CONSECUTIVE HOURS AHHHH THE HORROR.

Sent off some of the holiday mail at least (met up with Michelle and dragged her on my errands with me, ahhh she was so patient ♥), the second batch will be up up and awaaaaaaaay tomorrow! AND SPEAKING OF MAIL, [livejournal.com profile] laliandra's glorious package arrived in my mailbox today and I am the swankest girl who ever swanked now, HAH HAH ♥ LALEX I LOVE YOUUUU! I seriously look forward to wearing those fab red earrings, Lal, and I will be spicing up my Salzburg cowtown-time with the cute bag that is now my official EARRING AND SHINY THINGS transportation :DD.

HAVE SOME ~~LINKS OF AWESOME~~, since I need to kill some tabs again:

__ Top 100 Reuters Photos, Part I ...often heavy and graphic stuff, but worth seeing. Wonderful photography and striking images, which sounds kind of obvious/redudant, but whatever.
__ Castiel Picspam! ...and KABOOOM, we've veered right back into fandom. [livejournal.com profile] aesc has a talent for graphics (and fic. Oh man, her fic *_*), and this picspam is gorgeous. This Favorite Dean Clothing Moments from S4 picspam by [livejournal.com profile] bellanut is also full of the pretty <33.
__ Community picspam of 1.07 AKA ABED AS BATMAN!! ...I keep forgetting to mention here how completely crazy I am for this how and how much it makes me laugh, but it really is one of my favorite comedy series now and this episode is particularly full of massive win. ALSO: everyone needs to have seen the SPANISH RAP. I WANT TO BE A DISCO SPIDER, TOO.
__ PERFECT PERFECT BIG BANG THEORY CAST PICS ...that first one!! I am ridic charmed by Jim and Kaley doing Edward and Bella, I must admit (THE HAIR)! AND JOHNNY AS SUSAN BOYLE. That likeness, bwaaaa. Hope you see these, [livejournal.com profile] apple_scruffer!
__ THIS PRINCESS AND THE FROG SPAM PARTY POST hosted by [livejournal.com profile] halcyonjazz is well worth checking out. FIC! ICONS! ART! Delightful. And on the subject of awesome, [livejournal.com profile] mekosuchinae has been churning out adorable, sweet and sexy-brilliant Tiana & Naveen fic and I heartily recommend everything she writes. It's so good! This and this (!!!!!) one are also two TPaTF artworks on DevArt that I thought were fantaaastic. I FEEL LIKE AN EIGHT YEAR OLD GIRL AGAIN, EEEE DISNEY~~. And seeing the wedding outfits in actuality is even better than I expected. I love Tiana's lilypad gown SO DAMN MUCH.

WHAT A DAY

Dec. 15th, 2009 03:25 am
kaiserkuchen: (Reborn! Rabu rabu Tenth!)
-COMPLETED ABWL EXAM. I can be social again, now that the crunchtime is over! Or tomorrow, when I wake up again. But back to the exam. Well. What to say about it? It would be lying to say otherwise: This was one of the most difficult tests I have ever written. Due in part to the pressure (IF I PASS: LAST UNI EXAM EVER) but also because I had no real concept of how to do a large part of the math in it. Still, there were bright points, most notably the fact that the BWZ people are lazy fucks and apparently like to reuse the same exam questions, so some of the answers I tried to halfheartedly memorize off the ~dubious answer sheets~ were actually featured. And drilling some simple formulas into my brain actually paid off. Made it even more embarrassing that I got really mixed up on some of the theory though, what the hell. Hope that won't be my undoing, hah! All in all, I still wouldn't be surprised to have failed, but oh how I hope that luck is on my side and that I made the correct guesses... I do not want to have to redo this exam, all the note-taking I actually ended up doing has got to have been the most physical writing I have done since forever. I am such a horrible uni student. ANOTHER REASON WHY GRAD SCHOOL WOULD BE SUCH A HORRIBLE IDEA FOR ME

-Carmen and I looked utterly fab, dressed to the nines even headed to our academic doom in the JESUS FUCK IT'S GETTING COLD of Viennese weather. Her: Kickass yet feminine leather jacket, roughly-knit dark red scarf, dark blue fitted v-neck sweater and her swank long-ish dark blue/green/white plaid skirt with boots. Moi: my awesome new indigo winter jacket, black shirtdress with silver/black sequined squiggle pattern, dark grey tweed shorts + grey stockings & boots.

-Early X'mas present exchange time! Swapped our gifts since we won't have much time together once her sister arrives on Wednesday and combined it with watching the Dexter S4 finale and the first four episodes of The Vampire Diaries. Will probably have to make another separate post tomorrow, but suffice to say HOLY SHITTTTTTT re: the former, and GODDAMN, THIS IS SO FUCKING ADDICTIVE to the latter. Damn you, vampire show that I actually wholeheartedly enjoy. True Blood doesn't really count, as I am really just interested in what Eric and his entourage are up to... ANYWAYS. So I had no idea what this giant rectangular thing wrapped in aluminum foil (in lieu of wrapping paper, wut) on Carmen's bed was, amidst little tiny gifts like hairbands, pudding and caviar(!) face masks, which made my mind even more blown when I opened it and saw: THE FUCKING COSMOPOLITAN MEN'S B&W CALENDAR FOR 2010!! LOOK AT THIS FUCKING PIECE OF ART. The size alone pretty much blows me away (71 x 49,2cm!!) and the men pictured are all just simply gorgeous. And naked. I don't know how much I have mentioned this on LJ, but it is pretty much something I have always done since I started uni here-- treating myself to a nice b&w male nude calendar every year. My uni friends are apparently at turns either delighted or vaguely weirded out at how enthusiastic I get about it, tss~~. This year's calendar was quite disappointing, which meant just using some old favorites as decoration, but now? I am extra-thrilled to hang this baby up in January ♥
And I was pretty happy that Carmen liked my present for her-- basically assembled a set of blue and nautical themed accessories (batik sky-blue scarf, turquoise+anchor earrings and matching bag keychain, blue & white glassbead flower earrings) as well as a pair of Nepalese and Indian bracelets snagged in Bangkok and the last of the fancypants Green tea I set aside. Buying presents for her is so satisfying, ahhh :D


.....is it nearly 3.30AM already? FUCK. Sleep calls! Man, I hope that when I wake up, Sabrina's male ~visitor~ will be gone. I knew there was a reason behind her cleaning the bathroom all hardcore like that a few days ago! Good thing I spent so long over at Carmen's room, ugh I remember the previous visits all too well. NOISE POLLUTION. They should go back to fucking at his place, ugh I despise them so :|
kaiserkuchen: (LOL! BRB CRYING FOREVER)
ON TUESDAY:
-Watched (500)Days of Summer with [livejournal.com profile] cheshire_tabby! It was wonderful and exceedingly charming and just a movie that was made with such care and love, though you really were in it just preemptively feeling sorry for JGL's character already. But if you were to get your heart broken to smithereens by someone, I guess Zooey Deschanel would be a worthy candidate. HER EYES ARE SO UNREAL AND GORGEOUS, HOLY CRAP. And JGL does "head over heels in glorious and all-encompassing love" so damn well, I actually felt a bit awkward and uncomfortable staring directly at his face sometimes. THIS GUYYYYY. The music was also a delight, and Olga I most def want to borrow the OST from you sometimes! PS. I STILL HAVEN'T DECIDED ON WHICH RINGTONE I WANNNNT :O

ON WEDNESDAY:
-Watched the first three episodes of season 9 of Scrubs. I must admit-- it ain't that bad! Nothing can measure up to Scrubs back in its heyday of awesome, but I actually like the new characters, though I still have difficulties remembering their names (Number one/Drew and Angry RA are my two favorites so far though)
-Distracted myself from everything ever (I AM RUNNING OUT OF FANFIC TO READ NOOOOOO)
-Received [livejournal.com profile] quirkytaverna's AWESOME, AWESOME Christmas card ♥ ♥! Thank you so much~~ It is simply adorable, I love the über-Australian X'mas on the beach motif :DD

-Was debilitated by the most overwhelming cramps I have ever experienced in my 21 years of life. Seriously, I had taken two painkillers which are normally more than enough, but didn't do jack shit this time round. I was actually pale in the face, felt nauseous, dizzy and my entire lower back and my lower abdomen were hurting like hell. Didn't know if I needed to throw up or not, and was considering spending the evening sitting in the bathroom with my back to the (glorious) heater and deciding whether or not crying would be a good idea, when Sabrina came back and proceeded to have what sounded like a very intense phone conversation in her room, with foot-stomping and yelling, so I dragged myself over to Carmen's place instead. Probably alarmed her a bit with my insistence of staying seated on the floor of her bathroom, clutching her god-send water bottle and trying not to moan in pain at random intervals. But it helped, and eventually, after about an hour and after a lot of water and tea I felt well enough to head back to my own place. Jeebus christ, I sure as hell hope that this won't start to be a usual occurrence! DNW to be utterly fucked up over this every damn month, ughhhhh. /womanly woes

ON THURSDAY/AFTER I WAKE UP AGAIN:
-I MUST GET STARTED WITH ABWL PRACTICE. OH MY FUCKING GOD SELF YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO START SINCE MONDAY, GET WITH IT!!!
-Get mail (+presents) started for people and ready to send off (or at least a first batch)! Have already laid out all potential postcards that were carefully hoarded in Copenhagen and collected over the years... and wow that was an exercise that shouldn't have taken as long as it did. Shows how ingrained my pack-rat mentality is that it took me at least multiple attempts to put a travel location card in the "to-send" pile. I mean, I KNOW I do not need at least 3 different motifs for each city I've been in, but tell that to my inner-rabid collector.

OH AND EVERYONE!, if you are not already, this is me telling you to go check out all the goodness that is being posted over at [livejournal.com profile] yuletart right now! I can't wait to see when mine is gonna get posted, but until that happens, there are other super cool artworks and handicrafts being posted three times a day! LIKE THIS FUN STAR TREK ART. Ahhh, so cute!!
kaiserkuchen: (TBBT! It all started with the)
And I haven't packed yet, but hey-- why deviate from my normal last-minute pattern, eh? Good thing we only have to leave from here at noon, so I still have time~~

Still, things I have done today:

UNO: Hate my roommate, who came back sometime late Sunday. I was all in a fantastic mood from choc fondue with Carmen and Hazel that we had at Marius' place and thennnnn. Argh. This woman needs to STOP USING MY FUCKING STUFF, and in such a blatant manner that it is puzzling and insulting. Does she want me to notice and freak out?? Fucking hell. IT'S NOT LIKE SHE HAS FIVE TOILETRY BAGS IN THE BATHROOM RIGHT NOW THAT ARE FULL OF STUFF. And I have reverted to my fallback position of PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE post-it notes, though I guess this is a bit aggressive, too? I was shaking so hard when I wrote it, though I don't know whether it was from rage or because it was cold in my room and I was tired XDD.
Photobucket

DOS: FINISHED MY YULETART IN TIIIIIIIME! Woo! This year, I am actually quite happy with what I managed to draw, and I really hope my recipient likes it, especially since they are a hella awesome artist themselves and I actually got super nervous the first time I saw who I got assigned for a second time (as my first one dropped out? Or something. Hmm). I got to use lots of colors too, which is always fun ♥

DREI: WATCHED THE NEWEST DEXTER EPISODE, "LOST BOYS". Two more to go, and I just can't wait! Fffffffuck me, the suspense in the last 15 mins of this episode were simply exquisite. I just love watching this series so damn much, and yelling at the screen as I watch is very satisfying, when my nerves aren't been wracked from all the ANTICIPATION and PLOT ♥. And speaking of Dexter, here be an awesome recipe how to make the famous blood-slides as lollies!. The pictures alone look fucking fabulous!

VIER: Watched some awesome vids, and now that I have to slowly start clearing out my tabs that have been open since foreeeeeeeeever, have some of the links! First off, "Capital G (True Blood)" by [livejournal.com profile] bop_radar. Eric! Godric! And a sexy, sexy song... guh ♥. Then there is "A House Inside of You (Supernatural)" by [livejournal.com profile] wistful_fever. Sam and Castiel, and a short but utterly effective and awesomely edited vid. I love the new angles on Castiel's face that you hardly see in most other SPN vids- it feels fresh and well, Misha Collins is hot as fuck, so there is also that.

AND SPEAKING OF MISHA: Here are pictures of Misha and mini!Castiel from that Collectormania con. TOO ADORABLE FOR WORDS, EEEEEEEEEEE ♥ ♥!!

FIVE: Surfed around randomly and found things like a website dedicated to all the shirts that the guys wear on The Big Bang Theory! There are some pretty tempting ones, I have got to admit~.


OH AND ONE MORE THING BEFORE I GO. So everyone's been making holiday card posts and I have been diligently adding my addresses because I sure love me some mail. I actually think that I have everyone's addresses already and don't need to make a post asking for them, unless I have somehow forgotten you or you are a new addition to the flist-- in which case, PM me your address and I shall add it to my ~~address book of Awesome. BUT! What I do want to do is the following: Most of you who've already received mail from me once know that I mainly communicate via awesome postcards. Well, now is your chance to specially request some! I have a giant stockpile of ones from our various European trips (Prague, Bratislava, Stockholm, Paris, North Germany and Münich, Zürich), ones I can run out and buy for Vienna/Salzburg (Any particular sights you want? NAME IT) and the random weird cards you get from the city freecard booths. I also should still have some good ones from Thailand and of course, the ones that I will be buying in Copenhagen. Basically, REQUEST away and save me the anguish of having to decide who gets what XDD I just know that [livejournal.com profile] mcollinknight wants a Copenhagen one of the Little Mermaid, right?

If I ignore the fact that I have made PITIFUL progress on my thesis due to the following activities, these past few days have been quite fun! I was invited to a WG flatwarming party on friday, got to talk to a friend I haven't been in contact with for ages (he spent the previous semester in Shanghai, as well) and the assorted strangers who were also at the party. Yesterday I hung out at Wido's place with Clemens, and later two girls I also vaguely knew showed up and somehow I now have plans to go to an Australian pub with them next Wednesday? And after that I had to drop by another's friend's birthday/welcome back bash, to which I was uh, THREE HOURS LATE (whoops), but since we're not thaaaaaaat close it wasn't that much of a sin. Got some free cake to take home though, which was always a bonus. And all of this didn't cost me a cent, so at the very least I am wasting ~*Valuable Thesis Writing Time*~ frugally. I will also be heading off to meet Hazel and Marius later on today, the former of whom I haven't seen all summer and the latter for over a YEAR, as he one day decided to put his studies on hold and gallivant and work his way through America, Australia and Southeast Asia. He is also blond, blue-eyed, intensely attractive and fit (former gymnast!), and Hazel and I fully intend to hook him up with Carmen when she is back in town ♥. Oh, and I have some serious Jeeves and Wooster DVD watching planned with Olga later on this evening. Why is being social so unbelievably exhausting sometimes? I am not used to having things to do with so many people lol. Especially since I have insufficient self-control to get my uni shit done in time. SELF, WE NEED TO WORK ON THIS.

ANYWAYS, onwards to some reactions to the crazy amounts of distract-o TV I have been watching on TV-dome.net these past few days as well~~
