* First things first: Happy Birthday [profile] silme711!!! Have a great day!

++++


* Nothing much to tell other that I've been really busy with work and helping out with at my grandparents and trying to avoid the summer flu my colleague has been hosting for the last week. So far I've been successful with all but the last thing. I'm on sick leave for the next few days. I feel like I've been run over by semi. I was all over the place on Thursday but was okay for the next few days until yesterday.

* I managed to meet up with [personal profile] sandrine twice and saw "Bastille Day" with her and [personal profile] slippery_fish the week before last. Then there has been football and the office betting game. I actually won a cinema gift certificate.

* I'll be so very lazy this week I'm already back in bed after the very exhausting trip to the doctor's office this morning. I'll have some chocolate (thoughts of food make me all nauseous) and make some tea and then I'll watch some Bollywood.

* Feel free to rec me fluffy feel-good fics... :)
the_milky_way: (Default)
* First week at work over. It's okay, interesting even but I still don't really know if it's for me. I have phases where I think I'm so the wrong person for this but then things are kind of okay. It's a job for now and I'll do it, since I don't seem to be able to get another one. But I'll send out applications anyway. It's not bad, I'm just not sure I'll be any good at it. Nice people on my team, I get along with most of them. There are some that are a little loud, but it's not too annoying. Also, I see the most interesting things on the way to and from work, this morning it was a bunny in the rose bushes in the the city center. Cute thing.

* Nano seems to go well. I'm not behind and I'll be able to post on weekends. Breaks at work are short but at least I can get ideas out and on paper (will have a lot of typing up to do this weekend). My ReverseBB draft has been accepted and I actually know how to finish it and flesh it out. So at least that one will be done on time as well. I'm just way behind with reading and catching up on fandom... I do read my flist but I barely know where my head is or where I am on the flist..

* Still a little sick, cough and all that but I'm okay. I'm even okay with getting up early and going to bed relatively early. I miss having time during the day to be social, but that's what working life does. Only thing is
that lunch break is so short, you can barely do anything or really go anywhere to get food. So I'll start to cook at home and bring stuff.

* I might not be able to buy/renew my icon package when it runs out at the end of the month since I won't get money at then but only 14 days later... so I need to pay rent and stuff from my savings. Meh... :/

* Not much else to tell... migraines are back but I can't get sick and stay home now. Wouldn't be cool.But I seriously need to find a way to get AnadinExtra (it's not good for my liver but helps so very well with migraines)... Helped so much in Ireland but I can't get it here. At least I have my loved Nurofen.

* I'm also behind with shows, mainly with Secret Circle (4 eps) and Homeland (2 eps and I love this show I just don't have time). No idea when I'll be able to catch up. SPN is still my priority when it comes to watching shows and catching up.

Remember how I said I was slightly sick in my last entry? I probably shouldn't have said anything. It got me good this weekend.
Got everything, fever, cough, splittong headaches, dizziness, sweating. I feel like my lungs are being squeezed really hard. Spent the last few days in bed sleeping because I couldn't do anything else (did read a little fic today since I was bored but had to take breaks every so often). Even closed my cat out of the room because I don't want her to catch it, too. Everything hurts.

Grandparents brought some meds on Sunday before they took off for their vacation. Means I'm alone at home and have to get up and go out this week since I'm almost out of anything eatable, even cat food. Will see how that goes.
Will go see the doc tomorrow, so maybe I can get some things on the way home, if I don't feel too bad.

On top of it all my internet is crappy at best when it works. So I'm really, really behind on anything and everything going on.

***
Anyway, I know I said it already but again: Happy Birthday![livejournal.com profile] enablelove.
I did manage to write birthday fic before things got too bad. Just have to get it posted when I have it back...
No idea when, since internet is bitchy as hell.
the_milky_way: (sam (hungover))
I had an awesome day.. NOT.
So pain is less, which is cool but it's still there and comes in waves now whcih can be really annoying.
In addition to the ear and throat my nose is stuffed which led to a heavy nose bleed all day. I can't clean my nose without spending minutes in the bathroom trying to stop the blood...
So yeah.. yuck.

I made my day better though. Went home early from work, where I didn't need to be in the first place but had to get some stuff and was scheduled anyway. It was fun with the bleeding. Urgh...
Last day at work will be Friday but my boss won't be there so I have to go next week some day to get some papers and give back the chip and key. I think I am going to miss it, work and the people there.
Anyway, on the way home I got myself chili cheese fries, a salsa chicken burger (damn KFC's salsa is HOT) and a strawberry milkshake. Bought cards and CDs and went home to find cheesecake. So that was actually pretty neat.
Also found the most precious little netbook I have ever seen. Me wants. I even could but I think I shouldn't. But it is pretty.

Also waiting for me when I came home was a postcard from [livejournal.com profile] _bettina_. Sheeeeeeep!
*hugs*
And my first birthday present. Yes, [livejournal.com profile] slippery_fish, it is here and I will not open it until Monday.
I promise.

[livejournal.com profile] acityofwonder, sent off a card. I hope this time it makes it and I think you might actually like the stamp more than the card.. ;)

Edit: I know I owe people fic. And I should be working on the prompt tables as well. Right now though I don't really feel like writing or even reading. All I want to do is sleep, which is rare due to pain and a stuffed nose.
Sorry guys. You are not forgotten. I know it takes me longer than usual this time... And I have started all the prompts already.

Yuck..

So my ear infection isn't gone yet? Not it's still there and now it even is a full blown throat infection as well. Antibiotics are the bane of my existence. I hate to take them but I have to now.. Again. Have lost count how often this has happened lately.
Yay. Pain.
I feel so crappy that I can't even be bothered to do memes or post fic teaser or to even write.
I haven't even been checking LJ all that much and therefor have no idea what's going on fandomwise or otherwise.

Send me schmoopy fic links?
Please?
*puppy eyes*

But hey at least birthday present shopping with my grandparents was successful.
I sort of really looking forward to getting this present. And while being at shopping I spent my last money on Jared, or rather on the Friday 13th DVD.
I even got some Dr. Pepper. I wish I had more.

Wanted to make apple pie today. I have masses of apple here fresh from the garden, but them my mum occupied the kitchen for hours and I didn't feel like doing it in the evening.
Graving apple pie now. Go figure.
the_milky_way: (dean (reading))
Still sick but no real fever anymore. My voice is almost gone, this will be so much fun during the next days.
I have a cough now (which I usually get) and it sort of hurts.
So maybe cleaning my room after work today wasn't the wisest idea but it had to be done. I feel kind of dead right now.

Instead of working on my thesis I am writing fic which so isn't good but I couldn't concentrate on the paragraph I was writing anymore. I need to start with the [livejournal.com profile] spn_meanttobe fic if I ever want to have a chance of finishing it.
I am also working on a sequel to the last college!AU thingy. I have no idea why I am doing it, probably to keep my mind off of things. I am also procrastinating like mad which is bad.. really, really bad.
I hope I'll be able to get some things done during the next days. No idea how often I'll be online though.

Man, I can't believe Asylum is a week away already and I am a day away from seeing [livejournal.com profile] anjaliss. I also can't believe that there isn't that much time left to finish my thesis anymore.
And on Monday the posting for Big Bang will start. Where did all the time go? How do I get it back?

Won't be able to see the race tomorrow since I'll be at the airport. But after this qualifying I sort of don't get why Ferrari wants to keep Massa and diss Kimi. It was sort of of obvious who is the better driver in this year's car.
I just don't get it.

Last but not least my sibject lines will be quotes from Asylum for a while. just because I like them.
This one was Misha to me and then to some others in the customer service line around 11.00pm on Friday.

I am better. Not as dizzy anymore, but I am still tired as hell and my muscles hurt from coughing all day. But I guess I am okay so far.
I haven't been around much but I tried to read my flist. But at least I had time to think about how to put my thesis in order and how to go about some of those things.
Not that I did much concerning it, because reading was definitely not on my top list this last week. But I think I will start everything up by the weekend (if I find the motivation).
I did however start watching the necessary scenes for the [livejournal.com profile] whenboymeetsboy fic. That's it though. I have been utterly lazy lately. Voluntarily or not doesn't really matter.

I had strange dreams though, which usually happens when I am stressed, emotional or sick. So I guess the fact that all three things came together waranted for some disturbing dreams.
The easiest one was where I lost my credit card during Asylum and was really, really sure I hadn't paid for anything. Yeah.. Uhm.

Anyway, on to a cool reason for this random post.
I know I have told you that already: Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] slimyfishlover!
Enjoy the sushi. :)

Another reason for this entry: Welcome to the new people on my flist.
Have fun around here.
*waves and offers cookies*

And since it's been all over fandom and since I have no idea what to say, just this:
May there be peace for him now.

I am off to talk to one of my profs and I so don't want to leave the house right now. I'd rather sit here and watch Leverage or you know read fanfic or do something less strenuous.
Meeep.

PS, Aaron is in Vienna!!! I had no idea.
And he has his blondish, curly hair again.... Today it was fun updating APO.
AARON 2009 )
the_milky_way: (bed)
Still sick. Even more so than yesterday, where I was still outside and on campus. I spent today in bed, pending between being asleep, being out of breath, coughing my lungs up, watching crappy daytime TV and reading fanfic.
Nice mixture if you ask me.
I did manage to watch Gossip Girl and Leverage (some notes on that maybe with the SPN review).

Anyway, being sick always has some strange effects on me. I either dream strange things or I develop strange food cravings or I get nostalgic all of a sudden.
It's the later two this time.
This monring I remembered that I still had some fresh grapefruit lying around, so I decided some vitamine C wouldn't hurt and ate them.
I couldn't stop eating and actually ate all three that I had left.
Now I am craving grapefruit juice because it actually helps with the throat burn.

As for the getting nostalgic thing, well I am not all that frequent on Last.fm but I couldn't resist today (with being too dizzy at times to read properly or what TV, music was just the right thing).
So I have been listening to Gary Barlow non-stop for the past two hours.
I have those CDs lying around under my bed somewhere and I haven't listened to them in ages.
I forgot how much I love "Open Road".
It' so strange to think back and realise that I grew up with his songs (either with Take That or his solo projects).

***
The good thing about being sick is that I actually get enough sleep again.
And sleeping keeps me from thinking too much about the future and about the thesis I am not working on because I am sick or about the job I am still not having.
So I think I can say I am rested but dizzy. It's strange feeling that way, it has been a while since I was that sick.
I had colds and stuff a lot lately but none of them was that tough.

***
The thing is that while lying in bed listening to music or watching TV I get the strangest plot bunies... or that might be due to the cough meds.
Still no real Big Bang idea though.
Not to mention that I didn't get to work on the "In & Out" fic.
*sighs*

***
Last but not least:
Hello to the new people in my flist.
Hope you'll have fun around here.
*waves and hands out cookies*

I know you are all tired of reading about me being sick so let's just say this has been brewing for some days.
I apparently wasn't all back from the bout of the flu and my mum brought something home from the hospital to which she is already immune but I am not.
So yeah, it's not the flu but my throat is killing me and one side is swollen, my ear hurts and it is wet and I am dizzy most of the time. I have spells of ciold sweat and a stuffed nose as well.
There are breaks in it and I feel good and my mum got me Dolo-Dobendan yesterday, so it helps.
The dizziness though it worse than it was yesterday.

And I had to cancel a movie date which makes me really sad because I wanted to go and if I was feeling just a little better I would. :(
I am sorry [livejournal.com profile] mata090680, I really wanted to meet up again and see that film.

I just hope I will be okay again this coming weekend. World Cup and I so don't feel like sitting in an overly warm hall, watching half naked men and feeling like shit.
Meep. :(

***
I dreamed about my bike and that I found it lying in the bushes near the train station and it was whole and working.
I guess being sick and sleeping the whole day makes the dreams simple and easy to understand.

Coming home yesterday from Claudia's (and I really think I wouldn't have survived the day without her teas and her couch to lie down on *hug*) I saw several other bikes lying around the bike station, unchained and unlocked, so I guess someone has figured out that this place might be ideal to steal stuff. No idea what they would need old bikes for but I guess it's for selling them as resources (like strealing copper and steal and so on).. because apparently the new bikes were left alone.
Assholes. :(

***
Okay, so why does "Friday 13th" have a release date around here but "My Bloody Valentine 3-D" isn't even mentioned in the data base?
I want to see both of them. *pouts*

SPN season 2 on TV later tonight and I think I am unwell enough to not care about the dubbing.
Or I'll just take out my DVDs and watch those two eps the way I like it.


ETA: I just did not totally awwwed at Robbie Williams taking Gary Barlow in his arms. Awwwwwww.. :)
Gary's face and Robbie's smile.. cute.
Can't wait for the new Take That single and CD.. and really Gary seems to love Robbie's new stuff, so I am curious about that as well.

My family and Christmas trees seem to be at war. It's not the first time that we bought one and had to go to buy another just a few days before Christmas. The last time it was either a broken tree, which you couldn't see while it was all bundled up, or it just smelled like cat piss. This time it's losing all its needles before we even started to decorate it. So yeah, mum and bf just went to get another tree. Bleh..
Other news of the day is that bf will stay longer, instead of just one week it will be three now. Thanks mom for telling me, when he arrived today no less.

My ear hurts now, too. My nose is either stuffed or bleeding and I am just in a sour mood. Generally.
I am trying to cheer myself up with reading nothing but fluff. Not really helping though, because I actually want to write and finish all the Christmas stuff. But I can't really concentrate.
Am way too tired anyway to write anything half decent.
I spent last night going through various DVDs of mine instead of sleeping.

The good thing today: *huggles* [livejournal.com profile] sandrine, I got your card. Thank you so much. Love it. I love the picture on the front.

And more hugs plus Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] blue_eyed_merle. I got your card today as well.
Love the angel and the idea of it. Hope mine made it to you as well.
the_milky_way: (sam (puppy not amused) slippery_fish)
I haven't been feeling well for days and Sunday it just hit me. Hard. I have been down since then. Haven't done much, reading Harry/Draco mainly and of course SPN.
My chest feels like someone is sitting on it and my throat is numb from the pain (which actually is good if it wasn't too dry most of the time as well).
My muscles hurt, my skin is overly sensitive and my bed is kinda the only place I want to be.
At least I had time to finish the last Christmas stuff (well okay, not the stories) and will send it off tomorrow (if I can get up and out without feeling dizzy and break out in a sweat that is).

This all throws my plans I had for the week. I feel all restless and twichty because I haven't done anything for uni the last three days.
I really should but I can barely read through a 2000 word story without getting sleepy and headachy. I hate being sick like that.
I don't really mind a simply cold but being down and hurting all day isn't that much fun.

I haven't much to say anyway, am just going over my flist.

Oh and being sick produces the weirdest ideas, at least in my head. I am back to going through all my Westlife CDs and actually liking their new one. *headdeask*
Not to mention all the crack plot bunnies I suddenly have. Meeep.. Evil!Bunnies.

Bleh...

Haven't been online much the last days (week?), I was busy being kinda sick, drinking tea and watching OTH. So I guess I missed some stuff on here, whoops.
I actually felt better yesterday and this morning but being out all day (at uni and so on) wasn't really helping. My throat is back to hurting like hell and I am dizzy.
But it's not as bad as it was Monday and I hope it won't be.
Guess that means summer is over.

I feel unproductive, today though helped a bit, since I might actually see when I will have my final exams. *sighs*
Not really the light at the end of the tunnel but a step in the right direction.

I think I know how the rest of the day will look like, I will crawl back into bed, drink tea, watch more OTH and re-watch the SPN gag reel for the 1000th time.
God, 5 days to go until they will hopefully send off the DVDs.

ETA: Promo pics for Season 3. I want to jump Jensen now, like right now (and even more than I wanted to all summer). *headdesk*
the_milky_way: (ianto (get away))
Am still alive.
Just mostly without internet. Long story, it's working for now and has to until tomorrow (when hopefully the new DSL rooter arrives). It is working better now than it did yesterday. Wireless and a bit unstable and bitchy as hell. So I guess I missed a lot of what's going on and I am really, really in no state to go back through all my flist for the last four days or so....
Did I miss something? Tell me.

Am sick again as well, which isn't so surprising sine I am out of antibiotics and my ear is saying Hi again. Anyway, as long as I don't have any fever and the pain isn't that bad, it is okay with me. Still have pain meds left. The one thing that's really bothering me right now is the insomnia, and it isn't even a real one. I can't sleep at night but I sleep through the whole day, which I did the last days (well not much to do without internet). I am so beat that I am constantly tired. I wanted to do so many things for uni during the holidays.
I didn't do one thing. It's going to bite me soon.

I actually wanted to post something positive but there isn't much, well okay that's not true but amazon is kinda pissing me off right now.
I wanted to order one of the Torchwood books, I did actually. And got a mail telling me they can't deliver the book. Meh... Have to find another way to get it then.
Tried to get my source in Cardiff to buy me one together with the new Dr. Who magazine, she can't find them. She says she is constantly told that they are sold out right now. Huh?
Man, that is mean, now that there is stuff in the mag about Torchwood someone seems to have something against me getting it. *pout* I do live in the wrong country for that. But that is nothing new.
Do we really have to wait until October for new eps? *pouts more* That's mean you know?

Back to the other obsession then, Supernatural will be back this week. Thank God.

Uni starts tomorrow. I am so not in the mood to be bored to death again. Really, I have other things to do. Like being obsessed and being pissed at amazon. Or you know, getting better again.
the_milky_way: (jensen (not impressed))
To [livejournal.com profile] callmecayce, I should complain more often to you about stories not being updated. I just got part 10 ;)
So it's good that you bookmarked it.

Tea with honey. My throat loves it, but I think I just got an overdose.
Oh and can somebody please buy me a new immune system? I need one. Better sooner than later.

Ohhhh.. They are showing parts of Söntke Wortmann's film before the Germany - Ireland EC qualy game tonight, the one he did during the World Championships.
Wow, I am so going to see that in cinema. Awesome scenes.

USA Swimming Announces 2007 International Teams.
And Larsen is on the Melbourne team. YES. That makes me happy. Becuase Larsen and Grant at World Championships. And Yury as well.
Okay now Erik is back in the mix but still threesomeness.

So I will be alone for 10 days from Monday on. I need a cat again. Damn, I can feel worrying and dark thoughts creeping up on me. It's always like that when I am alone for a longer time.
Still no news from the social pension service and it is already September (damn, I hope they got my re-application).

***
On the health part: I am feeling slightly better but I am still not really good. My muscles are all cramped up (might be due to the fact that the office chair sucks a million times worth when I am sick and well that I tried to go swimming Friday, which was such a bad idea. Really, I should go and search for my intelligence, it clearly departed me. I don't knwo what I thought, probably that it would do me good. But no way. My shoulders hurt like a bitch and I still feel like I can#t breath properly.). Anyway, I have been making icons and I suck so much at it right now. All kind of creativity has left me, I can't make icons, I can't write (not even proper LJ entries) and I even mess up simple html site updates. And I am so missing out on the Vuelta right now which sucks even more than my apparent lack of creativity because Angel is doing good so far and I actually wanted to see that. God, I wish it would have started two weeks later.
the_milky_way: (sam/not yet broken)
Back to work tomorrow. I don't want to. I still don't really feel like sitting 8 hours in an office. But hey only two weeks to go. Chaos reigns now even more than before.
I spend my days either with delivering some newspapers around where I live or in bed with nice tea and ice cream and Daniel/Vala recs [livejournal.com profile] slippery_fish sent me or with staring at pictures of certain actors. And I actually managed to update APO. Yay me.
I am tired and exhausted and I don't even know why. I guess I am still worrying about some things too much (I wish I would get an answer concerning my social pension, I mean it is only a month left now and I re-applied like 3 weeks ago).

Anyway, I am so looking forward to the SPN DVD box. The screencaps alone have me smiling all crazy and happy. Can they be more obvious? It's just cute, way too cute.
Pre-ordered and they should get to me somewhen around Sep 21st up to October 5th (I hope sooner than later). This just makes me happy.

Oh another thing making me happy is that the laptop is working again. Yay. All files lost and I have to re-install everything (really every single thing) but anyway I can read/play my DVDs again (okay most of them, need to install some drivers). And that actually means a lot to me. I think won't ever go online with my laptop again but I still have it, so that is nice to know. Thank God.
the_milky_way: (kuh)
I have wanted to post this for a while now (never had time). Now I have a reason... First I am sick so I am allowed to post this. Secondly, PINK cows. Hello? I had to.
Third point, I am sick so there.
Fourth point, I grew up with that and it's just a memory (but I can't remember them being pink cows when I was a child).
Oh yes and it's the in-thing with the swimmers now. Thank you Mr. Goldblatt!
Anyway...

Cut.. 'cause TMI )

So I actually have stuff to do at work now. I am editing texts for fliers and stuff. I cut and edit the texts so that the jury who is judging the projects doesn't have to read through all 36 pages of project descriptions. So yes the new, shorter texts shouldn't have more than 3500 signs and be half a page long.
Problem: the original text is a page long and has 2000 signs. Uhm.. yeah.
And everyone there seems to be on vacation or sick or leaving early. I was home at 5 today and was about the last one to leave...
Huh. Good for me I guess.

***
I am obsessed. Yes, I know nothing unusal here. But you know this one even scares me because it is a box of DVDs. I want them so much that it's not really healthy anymore.
*sighs*

Okay back to watching Jensen on Dawson's Creek.

I hate being sick btw.

I love my two new pairs of shoes. Mum bought me red Nike sneakers and my brother showed up with red Graceland ones today. I don't know what that brought up but they are cool. Nice to wear. Now I need new jeans to wear to those. The two pairs I still own are ripped.
the_milky_way: (Germany06)
So the little watching we had planed got bigger and bigger during the evening yesterday. We actually got to know people and neighbours who we never met before. Interesting. It was fun and nice and really crowded in the end. They set up a beamer in our neighbour's house and hang a white sheet between the our garen house and the pavillion. Big screen. Fun.
And the planes were nice enough to wait with landing for less important scenes.

So I spent most of the evening in my lounging chair, between people and various grills (a wonder we didn't knock over some of them at the end of the game).
On the way home a police car stopped next to ours at a red light and one of the officers looked at my broither and me, smiled and asked if we where nice and didn't drink. We said yes, he smirked and handed over one of the German flags they had in their car. Nice guys. :)

*big hugs to [livejournal.com profile] callmecayce* Just because.. :)
