♥ "The Pretty Reckless" in concert last night. And it was awesome. Okay, so it was very hot and my phone refused to record properly but the concert itself was great and I had a good time. Taylor just has a great voice and for a 17-year-old knows very well how to present herself. Yeah, it was hot. Waited around with [personal profile] sandrine for a couple of hours to maybe get autographs and pictures but that didn't quite work out. But we met some cool people along the way (and I wonder again how we ever managed things before cellphones, Twitter and Facebook). LOL

♥ They way home was another story. We could write a book about it now. So our little group of 6 actually managed to catch a night bus into the city center from where several of us wanted to catch a train home. Well, the bus worked out, catching a train as well until a certain point. It was 1.20am and me and a girl from our group going into my direction as well ended up stranded in one of our big train stations because the train service thought it cool to take a break for three hours. The best thing was, the train was full and no one knew what was happening until we reached the final destination. Yeah, that's what you call service and being customer friendly. This never happened to me before. never. Not at 1.20am. And this is supposed to be an international tourist spot. Right.

Anyway, we managed to get something to drink, rest for a while and decided to go looking for another night bus. There were several but none of them going into our direction so we decided to walk. We did for about an hour until we couldn't anymore. Ended up waiting for another 1 1/2 hours for the first train around 4.30am on one of the train stations along the way. At least it was a warm night and we weren't alone. Man, if I had been alone I probably would have freaked a little. Sat there and had a nice chat and still a good time. Was home around 5.00am and fell into bed. I didn't really wake up today, I till feel all dizzy and tired. And Taylor Momsen owes me a pair of new feet. Seriously, just walking around in my apartment hurts (and it's not blisters but actually the bones and muscles).

Still, I had a fun night.

♥ And now I'll try to read some BB. Can't really concentrate today but I'm bored and so not up for doing edits on my own story. But I do hope that the story I chose won't be as meh as the first one I read. I was sort of disappointed and the story idea was so great. Oh well, there will be lots of fic to read (and I have to admit I still have some BB 2010 fic to read).

♥ At least it's not so hot and humid anymore. But man, living through thunderstorms under the roof is kind of scary.
the_milky_way: (sam/dean (working))
♥ Not much to tell. Internet seems to hate me these days, since it vanishes randomly for hours. Things with the apartment are settled now though. Will meet the former tenant Friday and get everything else settled. OMG, I can't believe I'm moving. This is just so.. weird. I'm in the middle of packing my things and trying to figure out the color pattern for my new living room. It's all exciting as well.

♥ No job news. *sighs*

♥ In between packing and figuring things out I had a busy weekend. Was out doing some marathon shopping with J and C on Saturday. In the evening I met up with Jessica for some cocktails and TexMex. I needed that time out and it was very good to just sit there, drink something and talk. And again, I love Texas Iced Tea way more than Long Island Ice Tea.
Then I met up with C for some ice skating fun on Sunday. Man, I have been on the ice in years and I really should have brought my own skates, this rentable ones were torture. But it was fun anyway.

♥ In the meantime I'm trying to catch up with H5-0, I'm four eps behind because I didn't have time to watch it. I keep reading fic though. new fandom? Who knows.
Southland's season 3 is over now and I sure as hell hope they'll get a fourth. I want to know how things go on with John, Ben and Sammy, especially with the way things ended.

♥ Sad side of things is that I didn't have time to write anything. I didn't even try to work on the FaF crossover because I couldn't get in to the head space of one of the guys. Bah.. this was going so well and now I'm stuck. *flails* I'm also very unsure about the ideas I came up with for Big Bang so far. They all kind of suck and I'm not convinced that I'd want to write any of them. I need to collect ideas. I know I can write 20k in two months, even in one if I have to, that's not the problem. I just don't have an idea that I really like.

For my inspiration, some new J2 on set goodness, as a picture )

I am finally done. The WiP is not a WiP anymore. God, editing the last part sort of killed me. Anyway, it's finished. At least this story is.

The last part of "The Long Way Home" is finally posted and a Masterpost is up now, too. Dark Angel/RPS crossover, Jared/Alec, overall rating NC-17.

"The Long Way Home"

Being done with this means I can finally fully concentrate on my Big Bang.
I even worked on it today and I think I'll need a day break from writing.
But it's what keeps me sane these days. If I can't get anything else right in my life I at least can write.
For now anyway.

I want icons of *that* wink. So bad.
I have graphics already and yeah...

Just transfered the ep onto my phone.
Now I have to decide what to do before bed. Listen to podfic, listen to David Tennant read "How to traing your Dragon" or watch "Point of No Return" again.
Hmm, hard decision.
the_milky_way: (jared/jensen (love))
My latop scared me to death on Thrusday and then on Friday again. It booted, up until the point where it showed the Windows sign, pinged and switched over tot he desktop.. only that it didn't switch but stayed black. There was a mouse pointer, I could move it and all but nothing else showed. Have to restart and do a system recovery. No idea what it was and if it will happen again. Safe mode worked the first time and I could save data and all, just no internet for me.. the second time it only worked for the datas before the recovery. I lost some stories. Anyway, works now and is even faster, I am still suspicious though.

Other things:
-> I am blocked. Like completely blocked. Probably because I lost the rewritten last part of the Dark Angel fic. Haven't written a word since then, not even edited stuff, which I am supposed to do so that I can finally post someone's late birthday present.

-> Did post fic though for the "Wherein verse": "Wherein Jared tries not to be too miserable (and to avoid being kidnapped by Mike... or not)", J2, PG-13

-> switched my Big Bang idea out for another one and I can finally take notes and start planning. I am glad I did it and I think [ profile] chani_atreides will like this very much (not so mcuh the fact that she'll have to wait even longer now).

-> Bought a new bed and a new bookshelf (because it was on sale), threw out my old bookshelf and the old bed. I can sleep again, at least for a bit and I am rested now...a bit. So it really was the bed? Am still a little doubtful. Kitty loves the new bed already, it's way lower than my old one and she can just climb on without having to jump.
Spent three days sorting through books, DVDs and other things. I threw away about three sacks full of stuff.

-> to add to my massive amount of books (I had no idea I had *that many*) I ordered five more, so yeah I think my days will be filled with reading and hopefully writing again.

-> Allergies are worse than ever.... I don't know what to do, my eyes are burning and my nose is constantly swollen. I hate it. I feel like shit.

-> When I wasn't building my bed and bookshelf I was going three a "The OC" marathon. Found season 2 to 4 for 10 each, so no 15€ at amazon. Yay me. Too much money anyway but I needed it.

-> Podfics are awesome, especially podfics of fics from yoru fav authors and your fav reader. *nods* It starting to become my late night ritual before bed.

-> Mum should be back tomorrow and I still have some things to do around here. Nothing goes over spending Easter alone and cleaning and watching "The OC". Is it me or does that sound rather pathetic?
Well not really all alon, had my cat and grandparents + visitor came by today, brought lunch and cake and 20€ (I so know what that will be... Summer dress here I come). It was a nice surprise.

-> The boys... oh the boys made me smile this weekend. I am so glad that this con went so well. Just the pictures alone... and yeah... Boys.
Thank you Jensen war making me smile. Thank you Jared for making me snort out loud. Thank you Jim Beaver for being just... you... :=)

I forgot where I got it from but Jensen *sighs* and Jared :D )

I am not really awake for anything coherent. I had a nice evening out with friends, which turned into a night out and saw me coming home around 2.30 am.
It's amazing how packed the city was at this hour, masses of people and the trains were full.
Anyway, had waffles and caipi's and got to talk to friends, I am glad I went out even though I had to get up at 10am today.

Conclusion: I am tired!

So my Big Bang poll seems to be decided 5:1.
If someone still wants to see the plot ideas and vote, you can do this here


-> Meme # 1
Leave a comment saying, "COMMENT" and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.
[ profile] enablelove gave me these words )

-> I was thinking about doing the VoicePost meme but I think I am too chicken to do it.
I can't really stand recording myself but maybe... so if you want me to answer some question in a voicepost comment and I'll try my best. But no promises.

Last but not least some pimping: There are sparkles... :)

Happy Birthday [ profile] wiccaqueen!

You know what a deadly combination is? Insomia and the Olympics.
Even if I am dead tired I can't fall asleep and I can't stop watching the Olympics.
I think i have slept about 5 hours in the last three days, which is so not good, especially when you have plans during the day.

Anyway, watching the Olympics is actually fun, at least the hockey part is. I am surprised that I still know so many of the guys and I still love watching it.
I actually missed watching hockey. I can't believe Sergei Federov is playing or that Teemu Selanne is still there as well. I loved how Dany Heatley got all cuddly with his captain after his goals. And I think it's the first time ever that the complete starting line of the German team consists of NHL players. That didn't help much against Sweden, seeing as irregular goals were granted and all... I was too focused on Peter Forsberg though to mind it much. And my little Finnish goalie is back as well. I was tempted to bring back my Antero Niittymaki icon.

Speaking of Finns, I think the Eurosport commentators where on crack or something when they commented the snowboarding events. They went on tangets and made sort of hilarious jokes every five seconds. It was actually fun listening to that and seeing the events taking place. How they got from commenting a flip to talking about Kimi Raikkonen I will never know.

Eurosport also has some nive features about the Games themselves and really, it's interesting who is there and all that. Thank God they show those bits during the breaks and not during live events.

Anyway, J2 at the Olympics is sort of cool. I actually want fic about that. Maybe watching hockey and all... *lol*
But they do look so cute in their beanies..

Not sleeping has another intersting outcome, I was able to watch a lot of the Berlinale interviews and press cons.
I still totally love Shah Rukh Lhan. That man is great in interviews and I think he one of the few people I can actually watch in interviews.
So damn charming and funny.

I actually had planned to make a huge post about my plot ideas and all.. but right now I don't even know if I want to or if anybody would be interested in knowing about them.
So here be poll about me posting it or not.

poll... poll )

*is off to finally watch Leverage*
the_milky_way: (alec (not the man))
Why do people feel the urge to leave trains that they are not supposed to leave? Second time in to days that this happened and every time I was caught in the middle of it.
Took me an hour yesterday to cover two stations that would normally take me five minutes. Great. Just because people had to be rescued off the tracks. Argh. Thanks for leaving haf the city to deal with the chaos-
Thank god it were just 10 minutes today.

At least most of the day yesterday was good. Busy day but I had fun and I actually got things done, which seesm to be rare these days.
Sorry, [ profile] chani_atreides, that I couldn't make it. I do feel bad about it.
When I cam home I was so tired that I fell into bed at 8.30pm and was dead to the world. I think my body really needed it.

Why do my teeth hurt again? I didn't do anything. They are not supposed to grow again and make everything feeling weird.
And the headache can go and piss off as well. I don't need any of them around.

Also why do the Stars always lose when I watch a game? Maybe I should stop watching and hoping I am not a jinx or something.

Leverage today.
I missed the show.

So it's time for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang again. Or at least for thinking about plots and ideas and so on.
I signed up and I think I might have some ideas already, one I will totally blame on [ profile] purequicksilver.

Anyway, so who wants to be in the filter? I never changed it from the first time, so some of you are already in it but I am not really sure who else wants to be in it.

If you could make me write anything for [info]spn_j2_bigbang, what would it be?

I am curious. Really.
the_milky_way: (sam/dean (kidding))
Seems like I have a week of test working ahead of me, starting tomorrow morning.
I am supposed to see if this job is for me and if I can learn how to handle a cash register in a week.
Well, the boss seemed nice but kind of shocked that I have never worked cash register before.
We'll see how that goes.

So that means I'll have to get up early tomorrow because they said I can decide when to show up but I guess early is always good.
I'll get up early enough to watch the newest SPN and then go off and try to learn how to work a cash register. Yay..

As for Asylum?
Well fuck you PayPal.
No idea how that will work out.
It's the days were my credit card bill is written and if they do it, they should refund do it today otherwise I'll get a bill that will say they'll get the money from my bank account even if the refund will be back on the credit card.
Which means I can run to my bank and tell them not to book it since the money is already back on the card. Idiots.

Big Bang?
Well, I still don't really like it but I wrote 10k in the last two days.
I have decided to make it two stories in one. So the first part stands at a little over 17k and the draft is finished.
I am working on the second part which now stands at 4k.
I have absolutely no idea where this is going.

Also, body language is something very interesting.
I am amazed at how you can basically ignore someone only through the placement of your body.
Nice boys, really nice.
the_milky_way: (gg (taylor))
So instead of doing really useful things today I dyed my hair and painted my nails. I am such a girl today. I even watched some Julia Roberts movies.
Holiday TV program kinda sucks, as usual. Maybe I should go back to writing Big Bang.

I wanted to do a huge Big Bang post about how to go on and if I should keep the scenes that I have but I decided against it. I decided to just sit down and write what I have in my head and then let my betas tell me if it works or not.
It was what worked for me during the last challenges and I guess I put way to much pondering into my last Big Bang. I just don't really have the time nor the nerve or energy to do it that way again. I have an idea and I will write and will see where it goes.
There will probably be more Big Bang posts but they'll most likely consists of whining and complaining.
Oh and I decided against posting a counter, because looking back on how things have gone so far I'll probably delete half of what I have written again and do it completely differently. So a counter wouldn't be much of use.

Just this, I am thinking about making Jared not only a geek but an insomniac as well, since I know what I am talking about.
Suggestions about what he does when he doesn't sleep??

Thesis is going.. slow. But still going and I haven't given in to the temptation of stopping with the books again and take a break.
So yeah, I have been busy. And I actually managed to go to bed early and get a decent amount of sleep. Sorry if I haven't been around much, it will likely go on like that for a while now.

I have no idea if I will be online at all during the next three days. My mum actually decided to hold up family Easter tradition and join my cousin and my aunt at the garden. The weather is awesome for that, so I will be there. Out in the sun with a bunch of teenagers, a nine-year-old and my aunt, which I haven't seen in a year (since the blow up last year at the same time). Joy.

In other news, I am going back to a semi-regular swimming work out. I want to look halfway decent in May.
I will okay with it even if my whole condition is for shit and I can't go longer than an hour. But that is better as nothing.
And as long as I don't have a job (which I guess will never happen) I can work out.

Not my comm, I am just pimping.

Paint.Net is the best new program I got lately (yes better than Moorhuhn, which is not a program at all).
It is similar to PSP but a little easier to navigate (at least for me and my limited capacity when it comes to graphic programs).
And it works well with PictureIt...

J2, NC-17, Ineffable by [ profile] dark_reaction
Read the Warning!!!! :P

I love how much the weather has changed in the last few days. I actually manage to wake up properly on most days now.
That doesn't mean I am doing anything remotely useful though. I am still trying to find a job, I am still working my way through thesis books and I am still kind of stuck with my Big Bang story.
But I am writing, which I think it is more than I did the last few days.

I am still kind of trying to wrok my way through all the con reports and pictures and vids.
Oh boys.. :)
the_milky_way: (jared/jensen (soapbox))
I wasn't home all that much yesterday and today. Spent a really nice day with C and J yesterday (tasty pancakes and the usually craziness), which was kind of repeated today only that I visit J at work and handed in another application and met up with C to do some shopping. So I didn't have much time to check LJ repeatedly. I am trying to catch up now.
Shopping was in so far successful that I managed to get a new SD card for my camera for half the money they want on amazon.
I got root beer. I wanted Dr. Pepper and got root beer. Oh well...
I also got a new kind of shampoo which I want to try out since Herbal changed mine too much for it to work for me. So yes, success.

I am so not talking about the Qualifying. nothing against Jenson Button. It's cool that he has the pole. The only thing make it better for me though is Sebastian on three.
Oh Kimi. At least Kimi is way, way in front of the McLaren. *snorts*

Busy rest of the weekend ahead of me.
I want to be done with the major scenes for my [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang story.
I kind of have the plan to work on my thesis during the week and to work on fanfic and such things during the weekend. So far it's working out. No idea how long I will be able to stick to it.

Wanted to work on the Sam/Dean piece as well but I am still kind of stuck there.

I think I had too many gummi bears.
I feel slightly sick now.

*waits patiently for J2 to have their wrap party tonight and to show up in LA tomorrow*
the_milky_way: (jared (sleep))
Mum is coming back earlier than planned. So my quite time is over tomorrow evening.
And I was hoping for a few more days.I am surprised how much I actually got done thesis wise. I am started to get into the topic. I just don't have a clear structure yet, which makes me a little nervous.

Big Bang is starting to work out as well, which is a surprise since I didn't really have an idea until a few days ago. There might be a poll on the way.

Also, I am watching NCIS. I totally forgot how slashy that show is. I usually don't watch it anymore.
But Tony meeting Gibb's father is just hillarious. So is Gibbs just handing the car keys over.

I was about to complain about the lack of fic I would be interested in but just now new things popped up, which kind of messes up my plan to go back to working on the thesis.
Staying away from fandom for most part of the day is relaxing. I should do it more often.

Nothing much to tell otherwise.
Nothing new. Still sending out applications and hoping.

*waves at new friends and hands over cookies*
Hi :)
Last but not least:

ETA: I dislike paring names with a vengeance. Really and truly. Not only for the pairings that I like but for every single one of them.
Dastiel? Seriosuly? Oh come on.

ETA 2: Swimming World Cup Dates...
* Durban (RSA)  17-18 Oct
* Rio de Janeiro (BRA) 23-25 Oct
* Moscow (RUS)  06-07 Nov
* Stockholm (SWE)  10-11 Nov
* Berlin (GER)  14-15 Nov
* Singapore (SIN)  21-22 Nov

Not so cool.
the_milky_way: (jensen (really?))
First of all, I might actually have an idea for Big Bang and I am getting excited about it.

Right now I am taking a break from my thesis and from finishing the story that I was supposed to be done with my the 1st. Those two things are kind of robbing my sleep these days (oh not to mention my furture angst but that won't be the topic here, no worries). So much that I am kind of unfit to be among people. I am so freaking tired, but at least I am not sick.

Totally girly random stuff.
I hate, like really truly hate the new Herbal Essences. I want the old volume shampoo back. It worked. For me at least. Now I can't do anything with my hair without getting an electrical shock after combing it. I hate having to go and look through other shampoos now just to find one that works again. It took me years to find the right one, not to mention one that is ripping the skin off my head.*sighs* Okay, I am done with that rant.

LJ seems to be back to randomly switching icons again. This time though I actually like the one they switched one of my Alec icons with. Huh, go figure...

My grandpa is the best. I have been looking for a usb cable for my cell phone and I only could find the real expensive version from Sony, which yeah would work but I didn't want to spend that much money on a single cable.I told him about it when I was there on Thursday and we looked at several catalogues and online shops but couldn't really find anything much cheaper. He called me today and told me about a site he forgot to mention and that I should go and look for the cable and then call him back. The shop actually has the one for my cell phone type and it's only 6.90€, which is really practical since I actually need the cable to get the pictures off my cell phone. It's quite a difference between 6.90 and 23.95. I wonder what makes the one cable that much mor expensive. It's probably just the name.

Fandom stuff, which means there is the meme at the end of this. So yeah, you are warned. Oh and it's and OTP meme. :)

Oh and I have not seen any of the spn 4.15 clips. I am trying to be strong, so there.
But dude, I would love people to use cuts. Yes, I have laughed about the posted thing and it's cute but argh spoiler... *is miffed* Why do people make it so hard to stay spoiler-free?

Cuteness alert for the day.... Jared and his dogs. Most of you probably have seen the pictures by now and I don't really feel all that good about reposting them, so I won't.
But dude, looking at Jared and the dogs cuddling makes my day better. And I have to think about the picture Jared was talking about, the one on his cell with the dogs and Jensen on the bed. I actually want to see that one.. :)

Meme time again.
Okay, so this is basically a sentece describing my OTPs. 17 of them to be exact (I never knew I had that many) and all you have to do is trying to find out which pairing it meant.
I know it sounds hard, but if you know my fandoms it shouldn't be that hard (I tried to be obvious, and yes TV shows, movies, books and rps... oh and there are het pairings). I am not doing the screened comments thing, who comments gets it. I am too lazy to do it the other way. :) I have done that meme ages ago but some things have changed since then so yeah.. Behind the cut since it's long and all.
Guess the OTP meme )

@ [ profile] spiritcrow: I got your card. :D Thank you!!!

I have been doing nothing but sleep (catch up on the sleep I missed the last weeks) and read big bang fic (since I kind of missed a lot with not being online so much).
I have even managed to almost get the last bit of editing done. I think my fic is almost ready to be posted.. yay

The whole Jessica Hardy thing gets more mysterious every day. I have no idea what to think or whom to believe. There are so many conflicted infos and no one seems to have the real story.
I don't know.. It's always kind of a shock, but if I suspected someone to come out and tested positive it certainly wouldn't have been her.
And really, the thing is that she was tested one day negative the next positive and the day afterward negative. How?
the_milky_way: (F1 (iceman))
Can someone please shut Nicki Lauda up? Please? I would even beg.
Seriously what the hell is wrong with that man? Yes, we all got that he hates Kimi for some reasons but can't he just say nothing then instead of stuff like that?
Doesn't really make a good impression.

Oh well, at least third and points for the standings. Not so bad. I just hope the next races are better. *pats Kimi*
And points for Fernando.. yay.
Poor Heikki though.
And did I really hear that right? Ron Dennis mentioned Kimi? Wow.

I am thinking about closing one of my domains and just go on with the site as a sub-domain somewhere. I really don't want to spent $9.99 for a site I know I'll probably be giving up after Beijing.
So it's a little weird after all these years but I don't feel as sad I would have maybe a year ago or something. It's okay.

I should start studying. It isn't much time until exams and I so should do stuff instead of reading and being lazy as hell. But I haven't gotten back into things yet. And somehow I am still on London time.
I should start with the editing as well. I already was contacted by the artist doing the art for my story. I haven't looked at the file since I closed it on May 1st.Maybe I'll start tonight. I feel like I should do something.

Icon meme again, snagged from [ profile] blue_ant

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick four/five of your userpics.
2. Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.

Dear Eurosport
I wanted to see Swimming and not Tennis! Couldn't you have at least changed your online TV schedule accordingly?
And it would be nice to actually show Livestreaming if you are offering it. I can't really see anything on a black screen.
How am I supposed to tape stuff if you are not showing it?

I hope you won't do that to me when Larsen swims on Sunday.

Not amused and rather annoyed

At least I now could see Duje break the WR and Mark being hot all over again and Ryan wearing the wrong cap plus swimming a WR!!!!!
Caps later.
I feel like spamming again.

I actually figured out what's wrong with my site's gallery, I have just no clue how to fix it.
*sighs* I don't know what it is missing though and why now because all the other galleries are working, just not the new one.
Oh well people can at least see the thumbnails.. It's a tease though.

Hehe, I am excited and happy and all that.
London and Steve.

Besides that I am all excited that I am close to my 9.000 word mark with the Big Bang story.
the_milky_way: (Default)
My brother brought me Basset's Liquorice Allsorts from his trip to Manchester. OMG, heaven.
And the pack is huge, so it should be enough to get me through the rest of studying.

Considering SPN had to go against Lost's season premier the ratings are okay. I expected less but it's among the usual ratings the show gets.

I actually got myself The Maleus Maleficarum. Huh... uhm, I have the excuse of my final thesis paper.
I hope it helps with the paper, otherwise I have no real reason for having it (other than the obsession I am talking about).

I wanted to say something else but I forgot... oh yeah, I think I'll need a Big Bang icon I just have no idea how that should look like.
