Filled with love

Hark! The herald angel sings "Pokerface", and it ain't half bad!

Merry Christmas/Hannukah/Secular Winter Holiday everyone!
This year, I was forced to spend more time at home than expected due to massive sickness, but hey, at least I get to be with my family. And I even still managed to get presents for everyone (or almost everyone) and massive amounts of food to devour over the next few days to make up for the weight I lost. I got no less than three books about dragons, and a boar. A stuffed boar. That grunts when you squeeze it. I have no idea.
Also, a picture of an owl with a Zanni mask and a witty caption.

I even have presents for some of you people, though I will have to figure out the shipping, which is going to be "fun". That will have to wait until after the three-day feast that is Kentrin family Christmas, and I have to cut this short due to being called to dinner.

Have fun celebrating, y'all, and hugs for everyone!

But I'm too tired to write much more of it. I'm 22 now, which makes me almost an adult I guess. On the positive side, I got to nerd out with my friends and stuff my face with homemade food. Fuck yeah.

If it seems you can't click links on LJ, click this one. Or, well, copypaste the URL. In fact, even if you don't have a problem, you should still read this. Especially if you don't.

The Fluffy Face of Our Adversary


So. I've been busy. In my defense, I present exhibit A: PUPPY!

With Smilla gone, we knew the house would get all quiet, but I didn't expect it to hit the level of graveyard creepiness it reached, or the extent to which my mother would be affected. As it was, the decision for a new dog came along a lot faster and smoother than I thought, and my mother prevailed with an argument for a puppy to reduce risk of epilepsy that I still can't quite parse.

To make a long story short, we got us a puppy (Husky, of course. The virus has us firmly in its grip) on Saturday the 6th. Yes, that is how long I've been procrastinating on writing this. After long and hard negotiations we've agreed to call her Nadua, because that sounds nice.

Massive load of puppy picturesCollapse )

It's technically 2010 where I live


My first post of 2010 is bland and uninspired, but I resolve to update this thing more often. Because that's an achievable goal. After that, I can work on the tough stuff like working out more, putting more effort into courses I dislike and building a giant laser on the moon.

Repeat This Sound In Joy

So, Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays, if you prefer), internet-type entities!

It wasn't a particularly good Christmas by direct comparison, but I will take what I get.

Gifts were great, I got dapper shirts and awesome books: Moers' Schrecksenmeister (Yesssss scaredycats!), Safranski's newest book about Weimar Classicism, and, best of all the surprisingly hard to get Golden Pot.

I managed to land some pretty good surprise gifts as well, especially with Henry James' Benvolio, which my mother really wasn't expecting. Except my father managed to one-up me by pulling out the Historical Atlas of Middle Earth, which I hadn't even thought about. All in all, we're gonna have some good reading on our hands for the next weeks.

And, of course, feasting. I should get back to either sleep or work, I guess. Have a fun and awesome celebration, y'all!

(no subject)

So, I turned 21.
That was good. Had a nice birthday, too. I got some neat loot, including underwear, Drakensang and books.
I am here to talk about the books. I could instead talk about how since I last updated this, I started learning French, working out and generally had some amazing experiences, but instead, I'm going to rant about German literature for a while, because I have just finished the best German novel I have ever read.
Let's go on a trip!Collapse )

But there's hope yet.Collapse )

So, saying it was a satisfying read would be quite an understatement. And now I have to sleep.

For the People's Republic of Treacle Min

This is the end of the silence as we know it

Oh man I haven't written here in forever. I was planning on doing a small piece on some of the surreal experiences I'd had recently, but then I saw something so subliminally crazy I had to do it instead. The meme of all memes.
Yoinked from the great maniac_online :
-Put your iPod / mp3 / music-player / on shuffle.
-write a segment to the first twelve songs that play. Doesn't matter how long the segment is, you have to end it when the song ends, and no, you can't use the repeat button.

I apologise in advance for the horrible quality of what follows.
Also, I added a thirteenth song/text because I like the number thirteen.

What have I done, what am I doing this is stupidCollapse )

DSFfgdgarfgreg. I should go to bed now, before I notice all the mistakes I made.

Quick Christmas update.

Merry Christmas everybody! I hope yours was as awesome as mine.
I got shirts, kickass ties and the ultimate snobness:
Sterling Silver Collar Stays.
Sterling Silver Collar Stays.
I repeat:
Sterling Silver Collar Stays.

I am so fucking awesome.
I need sleep now. Goodnight, hugs out!

I fail at meme.

No seriously I fail so hard. The interview meme that is spreading like AIDS the common cold right now? I totally missed the point of having to post my replies HERE hurr hurrr.
I r smarts.

Okay, question time.
First, questions by greenbearCollapse )

Annd, here goes maniac!Collapse )

ETA: pyrrhocorhax chimes in!Collapse )

So obviously it's time for me to copy the meme:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on and on...
