So, don't really have anything special to tell. I will attempt to write something about State of Play which I saw earlier this week later in the week and hope that I can manage more than John Simm good, Bill Nighy exciting (I'm pretty much excited by him just existing so nothing new there) and James McAvoy pretty. But till then my brain is lots of empty except for work-bitching which somehow has lost its bite.

The most interesting thing for me today was the Doctor Who news about series 5 in 2010. Not that I want to belittle fandom, I love it, but real life is dragging down even my fandom love. It's not like rl is so terrible, or that I don't have stuff to do. I go out plenty and a bit, the problem is that usually it excites me even less than sitting at home watching 7th Heaven would (which is a low point bordering on depression). I'm pretty much constantly bored except for when watching TV, listening to music, reading books, talking to romine or surfing the nets. And I have to resist the urge to call more than 70% of the people around me phony, with some room for idiot and asshole. Coming to this realization I start calling myself names and it just goes down from there, and believe me that's not a good point to go down from.

Yeah, so back to the Doctor and my difficulties in understanding why everyone is so gloomy about the one year break. Not saying that it won't be torture for me too, 'cause it so will but the good just overshadows that. First off we get a chance at some more time with Ten, which I think played a big part in the Beeb's decision. I'm pretty sure that DT doesn't really want to give up playing Who considering that he became an actor specifically for this role. I'd go as far as saying that the Doctor is David's Jack Sparrow. So this year will give him time to do some other stuff while at the same time giving him the chance to return.

But even if he chooses to leave the year will be a good idea. People will get some time to say good-bye to Ten and David which will make it infinitely easier on a new guy than if he'd have to come in right after. And maybe some really cool guys might be freed up by then. Thinking Hugh Laurie or Alan Rickman (though Rickman would go equally if not better for the Master) or maybe somebody even younger than David *doesn't think about James McAvoy just because of recent infatuation*. I'm thinking about compiling a list of people I'd love to see in important Doctor Who parts and re-making a surely already existing meme of it. Though not today.

And while we're at it, for the love of god, would somebody get David a personal stylist. Who buys his clothes, seriously. Just saw some pics of him at an award show here. I know he owns a ton of cool t-shirts why does he insist so on wearing the most terrible, unflattering stuff in public. I'm not saying he should take a page out of David Beckham's book and spent as much time with clothes as women do but he doesn't really need to imitate Giles and Wesley at their worst either. *cries a little bit for his prettiness concealed behind grandpa-clothes*

So nothing more to see, move it along, I already told everything, on to resting in peace.

I so much loathe having first shift at work that it's not even funny anymore. I never ever ever sleep, not now when it's hot all the time. Worse, I'm always working with my boss and there's just a special level of bad about having gotten zero sleep when your boss is there to observe it. And she's so normal that she makes me feel like a total freak in comparison.

Watching Angel season 4 at the moment. Hearing the theme music was incredibly weird because it felt so familiar even though I hadn't heard it for more than a year. Sadly I think I've watched it one too many times. The thrill is just gone, though it still has a comforting touch and atmosphere that feels nice. And how come none of the cast except for David have work at the moment. Alexis is much too pretty to not have a show of his own! And how have I missed Lilah, they just don't make female villains like that anymore.

Hola guys, remember how I said in my last post that the next day or the day after I was going to post about Two Guys, A Girl And A Pizza Place well that was several days ago and I haven't posted since nor will I say more about this show in this post. Don't worry I'll get back to it just not right now.

This started out as me reading my flist and then it grew into me reading about the LJ-craziness that befell us a few days ago. Wanna know where? Here's a link: http://stewardess.livejournal.com/261058.html . I really recommend it as reading material. Because not only does it shed a bit more light on all the happenings of the last few days but it's also extremely entertaining, I mean like House-snarkiness entertaining. Don't look at the length just start reading, you know you can stop at any point, the question is will you want to.

At this point I'm pretty much just in wait-and-read mode. Before the whole thing started I was like days from getting a paid account, the only thing that stopped me was that I was considering waiting around a bit more and then jumping on board with a permanent account. This idea like so many other things lately is permanently suspended. While I don't think that Six Apart is Evil Incarnated but more like my folks, old clueless and just trying to make a bit of money, I don't trust them to do the right thing for me (don't trust my folks to do that either actually). I just hope that they do get a clue one of these days. LJ is mostly interesting for fandom-people. That's the people for whom the services LJ provides are most useful. Non-fandom people have so many better alternatives that there's no reason for them to bother with LJ. Pissing fandom off won't help Six Apart in any shape or form and hopeful they will realize this before things go to hell more than they already have and will in the next few days.

But this thing taught me an important lesson. Whenever a big problem pops up unexpectedly and you can't understand how it grew into the enormous proportions it did grow into follow the money!!!

Heat came back, and windows are open. Am listening to Sweet Home Alabama as my street is partying. Actually I don't know exactly what the people are doing but there's lots of loud music and the street is partially closed off. Oh new song, Boney M.. I can't seem to make myself hate them, am not old enough to remember the bad things that came with that kind of music so the only things left are the kitsch and the nostalgia of my parents. They are always happy when they hear Boney M. on the radio and that's kind of endearing.

I've always wanted to travel and the United States have always been pretty high up on my list of places to go to but today I'm really happy to live in Austria.

Reading about all the uproar and watching people deleting their interests as a whole, friendslocking their journals left and right makes me so angry that I can't even properly express it. This recent "purge" lj did has probably been for naught as I'm pretty sure that with these methods you can't catch criminals. What you can do is make people afraid and miserable and unhappy with staying on lj.

Though I guess for me the worst thing is Six Apart's reaction on all this. I don't have a degree in law and so I assumed that all this deleting first looking later (most likely more like not looking at all) stuff they did was so that they couldn't be held accountable in front of a court of law. It's right what they say about assuming because it seems like I've been wrong. Here is a part of the statement they released:

"Our decision here was not based on pure legal issues," countered Six Apart's Berkowitz. "It was based on what community we want to build and what we think is appropriate within that community and what's not. We have an awful broad range of discussions and topics and other things going on in LiveJournal, and we encourage other broad-ranging conversations on all sorts of topics. This was a specific case where we felt there was not a reason (for these journals to stay online)."

So a community discussing Lolita doesn't enrich lj, no reason for it to stay online? People who are trying to give support and a place to talk to the same people for which Six Apart claims to be doing this are unwelcome to lj?

I never really trust my freedom of speech but every now and then, spelled a-l-w-a-y-s, I do like to have at least the illusion.

Sadly there isn't much that I can do, I feel like leaving lj, but that would only hurt me. Though I'll definitely not get the paid account next month as I had planned, nor the month after that, nor the month after that. Shouldn't Six Apart have a huge turn around and apologize sincerely to all of its user I won't go near a paid account nor any other option that might bring them some profit.

The saddest thing is that just this kind of conditions are what breeds the perfect environment for child-molestation, when people are afraid to open their mouths in case they get punished for it.

It's ironic that organizations like the Warriors of Innocence, who'd otherwise be far too radical to be allowed, manage to always turn freedom of speech against us while not valuing it at all.

I'll end this post with a link so you can get informed, here: http://community.livejournal.com/dark_christian/830650.html?style=mine.

Also, if you want to count join fandom_counts.

I'm sorry if this post is all over the place but I'm too angry for anything better.

The heat from the past couple of days has definitely said its goodbyes today. So now's the time where I should go "hmm, Eli it's not really that warm outside anymore, you should close your window". Do you wanna guess in what position my window is. Yes once again my unfailing ability to recognize the right course of action and to totally ignore it and do the wrong is rearing its ugly head. No doubt I'll wake up tomorrow with a mean cold but at the moment I so do enjoy listening to the wind outside and feeling the fresh breeze coming through my window that I just can't bring myself to close the window.

Goodnight to all of you, who are still awake, for the rest I'm sending sweet dreams.

Yesterday I read Kristen's interview with Damon Lindelof from Lost, mostly out of boredom, as I'm not invested enough in the show to really try and get spoilers and the other fannish things. Didn't read until the end as I got annoyed with Damon pretty soon.

Probably the whole story is all over the net at this point but for the sake of completeness: A few days before the finale some not exactly smallish spoilers got out and of course the people looking for spoilers got spoiled. Now Damon says that he will cease all information-flow between the show and outsiders. Which again, not so terrible for me as I'm not a big enough fan to really care. What I did care about on the other hand was that he gave "spoilergate" as his reason for that and the way he talked about it. Yeah, I understand that he wanted to keep it a secret and then cause a big wave when it came out at the end of the ep but come on. He seemed like a kid you'd taken away its favorite toy instead of a grown up man.

Every week at the end of the show there is a trailer for next weeks episode. It's how you keep people interested, not only are they reminded that there's another episode in one week but you also show them parts of what will happen, mostly parts that look very exiting so that you'd want to know what happens next. And often enough the most juicy parts of the coming episode are already revealed in one such trailer. But as it's the network doing this, everything is fine, just as long as it's not some fans. It's so hypocritical to be angry about something that you do yourself all the time and from which you also profit. He should be happy that there are fans invested enough to try and find out stuff like that, he should be kissing their feet and praising them and he should be thankful instead he makes them seem like the biggest scum on earth for caring.

I don't care, I don't watch every episode religiously, I watch it just as long as nothing better comes along. I wasn't spoiled. If that's the kind of fan he wants than congrats Lindelof you've got them in spades.

Though not really an angsty one. I just have Uni tomorrow, because I've got the whole week off work, so I'm not bummed if I don't get any sleep. 'Kind of toying with the idea of just lying down after class because almost all my classes are on the University Campus and that's a really nice place to spend outside in the sun in summer.

Why I can't sleep besides the usual reason of being me is that tonight is Heroes-night and also the finale and I'd probably be jumping around in our apartment right now if romine wasn't sleeping. Instead I'm spending my time organizing my i-tunes folder which is such a sisyphusian task because I have like 14 GB of music on it and it's growing all the time. Though I could now listen to music for over a week and wouldn't have to hear the same song twice. Pretty neat isn't it? Coincidentally I've also fallen in love with Tom Waits relatively new album Orphans. Actually that's not a very surprising development if one knows me. There aren't many things I love more than a good story told well and Tom Waits definitely knows how to tell stories. I still remember the first thing I ever heard of him was Alice the album not just the song and I had to cry because it was so perfect.

'Nough said 'bout me and crying. As I'm typing I'm finally starting to feel sleepy so I'm gonna lie down for at least a short while before the big boom (that hopefully won't happen or at least not in that dimension). Nighty-night and sweet dreams to everyone.

Nothing interesting to tell. Work and uni and me being me have tired me out, I feel so incredibly exhausted. I don't really have that much to tell about this weeks shows, may write something about GG or the end of VM, but at the moment I'm even too blah for this. Watching Garden State right now, and it feels very weird, like it's made especially for people like me. I hope there's a point of it because it seems kind of cheap. People love to watch television-folks behaving and feeling the way they themselves do and looking incredibly smart while doing it, even when they are pointless. So I'll keep hoping that a point emerges somewhere. At the moment it feels like a philosophy lesson where they just randomly throw around ideas. So while I'm watching I'll do one of the scarier memes out there, how much time do you spend in front of the TV? Scary TV MemeCollapse )
diagnosis: blahblah
Okay, actually that's not so much this weeks episode as the trailer for next. This one was too much of an action/filler-episode and everything else, as usual, under the friendly spoiler-cutCollapse ).

I can't wait for next week to come around and bring us some resolution but I dread the break afterwards. I got kind of used to having a new Heroes every week and it will be all sorts of sucky to not get a Peter-fix every Monday.
Clap, clap. I didn't even spent 24 whole hours with my parents but it felt like forever. And the worst thing is that they sucked me back in. At least when I have a fight with them it's easier to cut them out, I have a real, immedate reason but now it's back to just me knowing that spending time with them does me no good. Just thinking about them makes my head and heart hurt because they are in this kind of fucked up situation that you can't change a thing about and I can't even give them my support because it's destroying me to be in their vicinity. The utter hopelessness of their situation, the emptiness and solitude that I see and feel every time I visit them scares me, it feels like it's eating me up inside. And it's worse knowing that by removing myself from the whole thing I add to their loneliness but I'm simply not strong enough to do this anymore.

It's weird how nobody can make you feel bad quite as well as parents. Today my mom just turned up in my Starbucks. I went from a bit tired but kind of playful, my colleague and I were in a really silly mood, to absolutely exhausted, panic-y and nauseous. And suddenly leaving the country and taking up a new name doesn't feel batshit crazy but like a viable option to my problems. No, I'm totally not full of emo today.

To anti-quote my all time favorite show, Buffy: "I like sunrise better when I'm staying up late than when I'm getting up early, you know? It's like ... I'm seeing it from the wrong side." Even when I'm getting up from just 3 hours of fitful sleeping it still seems wrong somehow. I see it more in the Angel-y way, when the sun's up humanity lives to see another day. It feels better, the idea of a whole new day where all the problems of the previous day are wiped out just puts me to sleep way easier.

But then again I'm not even sure I'll get to see the sun rising, because I have to be at work around 5:45 and we don't see the sun there as it's closed from all 4 sides and you have to go for around 2 minutes till you come to a place where you can see the sun again. So it might stay perpetual night for me until I get out. Yay, me. I so love my work!!!

Went to a party yesterday and that coupled with my lack of sleep, ergo a major overcompensating sleep-session, and work today, filled up my time completely until now. But I've made a very important discovery: Me loves chocolate-fondue. What you really expected something profound? We were just girls, and if some of us didn't have to go to work today it would very likely have escalated into a slumber-party, which says a lot about the level of silliness there. It was a lot of fun. Memo to self, go to more slumber-parties, which brings me to my last memo titled "more sleep" which leads to saying goodnight y'all. Hope the sandman brings you lots of sweet dreams.

I'm dead, like totally absolutely too exhausted to even care. Didn't go to sleep today and now I've been awake for more than 36 hours, I almost fainted and the only reason I'm still functioning is coffee. The one single advantage of working in a coffee shop. From what I've heard recently 36 hours aren't a big deal anyway, but then again I don't have any traumatic events I could blame my insomnia on.

'M watching the Secret Window and it still amazes me that it can be so extremely enjoyable just to watch Johnny Depp acting. I actually wanted to post more but I'm just falling asleep where I'm sitting and that's not good when your precious little baby, in this case my laptop, is on your lap.

Of course I could be going out but I've been to so many gatherings, parties and get-togethers lately that I feel like hiding under a bed just at the prospect of going out again. Which in and of itself wouldn't be a bad thing had I at least sat down and studied a bit but no I watched TV-shows, fan-vids, listened to music and read the Watchmen.

My grandmother died two weeks ago. Which btw isn't some kind of cheap excuse for this month's hiatus and I don't really expect any kind of reaction either, I've already dealt with the whole thing. I guess I just want to write about this so that I'll have it written down somewhere and don't just forget.

I should mention that my grandmother and I weren't very close especially not in the last few years. We were too different for that but she was the woman I spent more than 50 percent of my time with when I was a kid. She taught me to write before I went to school, and also to count, she read stories to me, and poems, she invited my friends over for lunch because I was an incredibly difficult child and didn't wanna eat otherwise. She bought me books, almost weekly because I loved to hear and read stories. And she made me countless dresses 'cause my parents didn't have lots of money but she still wanted me to look pretty.

Then of course I grew older and formed my own opinions and views and they clashed quite a bit with those of my grandma. Maybe that's the way it's meant to be, maybe all children have to fight with their parents and grandparents, maybe otherwise one can never become fully independent. Doesn't matter right now anyway. Though she hasn't been a big part of my life for a while now I feel sad that somebody who was so important to me once is now forever out of my life. That's all I wanted to say.
Just came back from watching Stranger Than Fiction which wasn't a bad movie to return to from a cinema-hiatus. I wouldn't call it great, but I enjoyed it extremely, especially the first part. The first movie with which I consciously observed myself giving it a higher rating than it really deserved because it hit so many of my kinks. spoilers for Stranger Than FictionCollapse ) So all in all very enjoyable!!!

On other news: started myself on Friday Night Lights which I was still surprised to discover I liked, even though I'd read like a thousand positive reviews, I'm just naturally distrustful of people's opinions about art sometimes. Haven't had time to organize my thoughts so I don't have any insightful remarks to make, but I have to say that The Coach is love and that Tim is really, really incredibly pretty.

Okay that's that for the moment. I'll try to go to bed because I feel kinda knackered, goodnight y'all.

This show alone will stand against dawson's creek-y dialog, the sex'n'the city-pseudo feminism, and the general forces of bad TV.

It brought us pride about being geeky and nerdy, thanks Xander and Will, showed us that wearing short skirts and making snarky comments isn't an impossible combination, Buffy that's you, and ruined us for all other man, really thank you very much Spike.

hola guys, in the name of not letting this journal die here's a new post even though I don't actually think I've got too much to say. Or at least nothing too useful. I mean I could always talk about how appalled I am with the musical taste of people my age and the fact that they don't seem to listen to a single line of the stuff they hear on their stereos but I don't feel like feeling 40 years old, the inevitable outcome of making such a post.

I could also write about the whole McCharming/McSweety drama-rama but one would transport me back into my teen days, which I have deemed as long over and not revisable, while the other would just make me seem tawdry, probably rightly so. All in all I see no acceptable options of talking about my life or any opinions to current events I might have developed so I'll just go with meme-ing. Not such a hard thing to do seeing as I'm a member of fannish5 which has all kinds of funny memes. This week it's naming 5 characters you identify with, so here goes:

hi guys, so another month, another try. who knows maybe it will stick someday.

I don't really have any interesting stories to tell, am sitting here watching Road to Perdition. In which Tom Hanks seems slightly less annoying than in most of his other late work. Also is that the boy who plays in 7th Heaven?

Since I don't feel like doing anything useful at this late an hour I'm going to start my own meme (probably done a thousand times before but it didn't reach me so...), inspired by Kristen's various boyfriends and fiancés here come My 10 Rock Star Boyfriends:

3.Kurt Cobain
4.Nick Cave
5.Carl Barât
6.Jarvis Cocker
7.Mick Jagger
8.Keith Moon
9.Brian Ferry
10.John Fruiscante

ya know the rules, I don't tag people, but feel free to do the meme

and as I'm in a meme-ing mood here come two others:

The One True Slayer

97 Bites of Slayage

Damn. Not only have you died twice doing what you do, but no one understands your burden and you find yourself disturbingly attracted to vampires. You are the ultimate repository of what it takes to be the Slayer, and no one can tell you otherwise. If you don't own all seven seasons on DVD, it's cause they haven't been released in your country yet. I am in total awe of you, and maybe just the tiniest bit creeped out.

You scored higher than 99% on bites

Loser- INTP

26% Extraversion, 53% Intuition, 60% Thinking, 26% Judging

Talked to another human being lately? I'm serious. You value knowledge above ALL else. You love new ideas, and become very excited over abstractions and theories. The fact that nobody else cares still hasn't become apparent to you...

Nerd's a great word to describe you, and I seriously couldn't care less about the different definitions of the word and why you're actually more of a geek than a nerd. Don't pretend you weren't thinking that. You want every single miniscule fact and theory to be presented correctly.

Critical? Sarcastic? Cynical? Pessimistic? Just a few words to describe you when you're at your very best...*cough* Sorry, I mean worst. Picking up the dudes or dudettes isn't something you find easy, but don't worry too much about it. You can blame it on your personality type now.

On top of all this, you're shy. Nice one, wench. No wonder you're on OKCupid!
Now, quickly go and delete everything about "theoretical questions" from your profile page. As long as nobody tries to start a conversation with you, just MAYBE you'll now have a chance of picking up a date. But don't get your hopes up.

I am interested though. If a tree fell over in a forest, would it really make a sound?

Hiya guys *waves*. What you thought I was dead. Why would you, just because I haven't written even a single line in the last month, or even made some kind of comment. Okay I may be able to see your point. The problem is work just sucks all the life out of me (no don't worry, not literally - I think I should make that point considering that I got into lj through Buffy). Everybody at work is being ill, or in the States for some obscure Army-event. Last one by the way is our boss, which normally wouldn't make me too unhappy but for the fact that the last month I may have had 3 shifts that weren't closing shifts which means that I never see him anyway 'cause he works in the mornings. Anyway, with half the staff gone everybody else has to work even more extra-hours and with university in the mornings and work in the evenings I just don't feel like I have the energy to sort through my thoughts and write them down. Actually I don't feel like I have the energy to have thoughts. And sometimes I'm just not sober enough for typewriting because besides all else the remaining staff is also being terribly charming and making me go have drinks after hours.

But this week I finally managed to keep ever single one of my three free days (would you believe that my contract is only for 24 hours a week) and it's also the day where I have only one lecture to attend at university so I got away with being a bit lazy.

Also I took some time to get to know my new baby. Yes I joined the bandwagon and now too have a MacBook. Pretty, not heavy and it still has a functioning battery. I do love it and have named it The Bride. The latest purchase I've made this month, together with a new cell phone and a really huge poster of Johnny Depp playing piano while smoking. Which now leaves me totally broke but with a lot of pretty things which I guess isn't such a bad thing even though I'm still broke.

On other news: I watched a lot of TV: cut for latest VM, BSG and WeedsCollapse )
  • finally the know what I knew since Peter was introduced, he is "Agent Wonderbread"
  • so loved Celia throughout the whole episode
  • the Voldemort-quote was so perfect, much better than anything Lorelei ever called Emily
  • Conrad and Nancy finally kiss *flails and is unable to attempt human speech*
  • can't wait for the next episode

Okay it's 6:30 in the morning and I've gotta get some sleep if I want to be up to working and partying tonight.

Well, now that I've managed to get into most of the classes I wanted to, and also held onto my job I just have to forget about the life I already had, get over this foolish notion that the body needs sleep every now and then and I'm all set. I feel like I've gotten way over my head with my schedule for university combined with my work schedule but I feel compelled to at least try and make it. Of course if that doesn't work I'll be losing a whole semester, which ideally I shouldn't but who cares?

On other news romine already gave me my birthday present (her being anxious to see how I like it and me being anxious to find out what it is amounts to nothing good), the first season of Arrested Development. Me = happy camper. Though probably I'll still have to wait until the weekend and my birthday to watch it since I'd like to get romine into AD as well and she's quite busy this week (and if she sees scenes just in passing she'll lose interest altogether). What's even better? Not only did I get the box-set but she also bought an English edition of Sarah (a novel by J.T. LeRoy) for me. You gotta love birthdays!!!

What also helps me over not being able to watch AD is that I gifted myself with two box-sets as well, The Complete Blackadder and Coupling season 1. Unfortunately my love for Hugh Laurie wasn't lessened in the slightest after watching him as the Prince Regent, I'm more obsessed than ever.

And the fondness I had for Jack Davenport? It's turned into a full blown obsession. What exactly was their reason for canceling Coupling? 'Cause whoever made the decision must have been a complete idiot!

Okay have to run now, I have a lecture in less than an hour and I'm still in my underwear.

Usually I really don't hate my body. I'm not saying it's the nicest ever, I don't have a super fast metabolism, my skin isn't clear and I do get sick quite regularly but considering all the things I'm putting it through it's not treating me too badly. Usually! Problem is, every now and then it will totally forsake me. Like last week when I caught a cold, I guess it could have been some kind of virus that's been going around at work, but I can't be absolutely sure. Whatever it was it worked very fast, one day I was totally okay the next I was dying. And this are the situations when my body say 'bye bye, I don't care I'm going on vacation to Hawaii'.

You don't understand what I'm talking about? Yeah, I wouldn't either. Explanation: Under normal circumstances I do think that I can do anything on my own. I really don't like to rely on my parents (or anybody else for that matter) and usually I don't. But when I get seriously sick I actually do need to have somebody with me. Why you ask? Well because every time I reach a certain level of sickness my circulation gets shot and I'm in constant danger of passing out. Seriously, once I passed out in the bathroom, my mother found me and had to carry me out. But really, how embarrassing is that! And yes I was stark-naked. And I don't have the excuse of a corset(okay totally off topic). The important thing is that being sick makes me realize that I'm not as independent as I'd like to think which really, really sucks! Okay self pitying rant-party is over.

So I got a copy of Prison Break season 1 courtesy of the generous colourful_muse a while back, meaning one week ago. And seeing as how I've got exams this week I was planning on watching it as a kind of reward afterwards. You see where I'm going with this? Yes of course I've already watched the whole season. So here a few thoughts: Prison Break season 1Collapse )

I've also checked out Smith because it sounded kind of interesting what with the thievery and the Virginia Madsen and the Ray Liotta. Some thoughts on the second episode and the show as whole under the cut TwoCollapse )

Okay should sleep now! Goodnight.

Actually I wanted to do a lengthy post about House but I got caught up in memes and thinking about it I came to the conclusion that it would probably be better to write about episodes I like instead of the ones I dislike. So here come a few impressions of Informed ConsentCollapse ).

and the memesCollapse )

Over and out.

There was a time, I won't say not so long ago, but also not that distant when the word "all-nighter" sounded exotic and exiting. Reserved for things like going out and partying with my friends, the new Harry Potter, good fanfic or some box-set I wanted to see in one go. Occasionally it carried even a touch of pride when its cause was some exam I'd had to study for until the last minute, or a paper I'd had to hand in. It meant I had a life.

Now I do the laundry, wash the dishes or tidy up the apartment and do all the other things I usually wouldn't do if I could only sleep. Somehow the phrase "pulling an all-nighter" has lost all it's former glory. In return it has acquired an air of hard work.

So watched the second episode of House. And my love for the guy is back full force. So here it is:

Cane and AbleCollapse )

On other news, it's meme time again: Comment and I'll give you a letter; then you have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. After, post this in your journal, and give out some letters of your own.

Actually I have to get up in 5 hours, so I think that I'll cut this short (right!). Goodnight all, and sweet dreams. May you dream about doctors and captains! As will I.

Yello, nope I didn't die and don't have any other excuse for not writing for the past few weeks either. I can't even say that there wasn't anything to write about, there was plenty, nothing life-changing but I've made something of less. I simply wasn't in any kind of mood to write about the things that did happen.

I guess it could have been one of my bouts of communication-reluctance. I do have them every few months and they usually mean that I don't pick up my phone, don't call anybody back, don't text message, e-mail or communicate with anybody in any way if I can avoid it. Meaning that you either catch me in person somehow or you'll have to wait till it's over. Doesn't make me terribly likeable, does it? But look at it this way, in our world somebody who can resist phones as well as I can is pretty rare? Yes, I don't see how that would make me more likeable either I just hoped it would divert your attention. How weird is that for somebody who is addicted to the internet? But at least you can be sure that I read every single one of your posts even if you don't get any comments on them.

So I splurged on some DVD's, one of them being ElizabethtownCollapse )

Okay that's it for today. Must. Sleep. Now.
