... the pain behind my eyes. I am so tired that I feel sick.
I am just glad I didn't shatter any of the planting pots I had gto sort through at work today.

I wanted to take a nap when I got home but couldn't because I had to wait for a delivery.
New modem is here now, let's hope it will hold longer than two weeks like the last one. I don't need to see smoking things again.
Talking about internet and computers, I am also staring at the iMac one of the discounters is now offering in their online shop. So tempted, it looks all pretty there.

I think I am going to read a little and then go to bed. So not up to going through my flist or anything.

The only thing I have been doing besides work and editing is watching swimming. The thing is that I still don't really can't watch Aaron without getting excited but I feel all sorts of detached from it as well.
I cheered fro RyRy and Eric though, hehe taking down Phelps' WRs must be fun.

I just sat on my windowsill and watched rather cool fireworks.
The local football club officially re-opened their new stadium today. They had to built new sections to accomodate the rules of the higher league they managed to enter this year.
Therefore a friendly was held between the club and Hertha BSC (the first league club of the city). I didn't even need to watch the game on TV, I could hear everything that was going on just fine.
Yes the stadium is that close. Anyway awesome fireworks and I didn't even need to leave my room.

Was shopping after work today and it's sort of cool to have some money when sales are going on.
I scored two pairs of earings as well as a sweater, the later for only 2.50.
Oh and I got my Dakine accessory bag for the backback I bought some weeks ago.
This sort of let my love for Dakine grew even more. Not only were they supper fast with delivering it they also put some small but cute suprises in it, like sheets of stickers with all the current Dakine logos and a chip for the mall trolleys.

Nothing else to tell.
My organisational skills concerning my thesis still seem to be hide somewhere. Can't find them anymore.
I am so massively stuck that I am this close to panicking. Not yet though, am still trying to get it done.
I am also reading books that have nothing to do with my thesis, which sort of helps trying to calm down again.
The thing is that I want to write either a Sam/Dean or a J2 version of one of the books. So not good. I can't use more distractions.

Also, US Nationals are going on and I sort of don't care. No, that isn't right I do care I just don't stay awake the whole night watching races on Live Timing.
Speaking of Nationals, wtf RyRy, did your hair explode?
the_milky_way: (wr (good times))
Hehe.. Okay... I think this is the first time since I have been following swimming that I've seen a backstroke WR tied. (which makes it what? Between 12 and 8 years? Huh..)
YAY Aaron!!!!! Tied Ryan's WR
*hugs RyRy*

But holy hell they were close:
Aaron -> 1:54.32
Ryan -> 1:54.34

Oh and yay for Gary and Nathan making the 50 Free finals. Gary looks pretty good. Hope he makes it.
Would be cool for him at 33 to make his fourth Olympic team. And really Game without Gary... I can't remember Games without him.

Bed. Now.

ETA: Wheeeee Amanda!

Short prelims post... because I am actually studying on the side (or pretend to..).
Watching prelims almost always leaves me kind of angry at some of the guys (and girls). No matter if I am there to see it live or watch it on the screen.
Just now Aaron kind of scared the hell out of me... he qualified for the semis tonight (which I hate btw.. I hate semi finals) but he was just 6th. Randall kicked butt though, as did Ryan.

KLete qualified as well and I am praying for him to make it into finals.
Larsen once again was the surprise of the race. Was actually 2nd fastest qualifier in his 200m free heat.. And he always said the short races aren't for him. Guess coach Salo saw that differently.

Amanda!!! Amanda qualified for semis, too. Wheeeee.
Natalie broke the WR in the prelims, after it was broken in the heat before hers (kind of reminds me of Barcelona and that 100m Fly race).

ETA: God I so miss seeing them live. Right now I actually wish I could be there and watch, even though I know it probably would break my heart to see some of them not make it.
the_milky_way: (nathan (thinking zone))
Nathan!! Final. Wheee.
Duje, too.

Peter. I forgot how cute Peter can be. And he is a Trojan now. No more Stanford.
Coach Salo knows how to train backstrokers. *snorts*

ETA: Mark Foster in a Butterfly final. Awesome!
I used to pin over Adam Pine. Old times long gone, he is still cute though.

ETA 2:
RYAN! WR!! In a semi-final.
Maybe he should do that every time, take his teammates' caps when he swims. Last night it was Lundquvist's, today it was Gangloff's, what will be it tomorrow?

Some caps from yesterday, mainly because I tried to tape Ryan's races for [livejournal.com profile] blue_ant (am still trying to find a way to get the vids to you, I'll have time to figure it out after this weekend)
So some caps of Ryan, Mark, Duje and Gerhard in the Manchester Caps Gallery.

Big Bang post later.
the_milky_way: (jared/jensen (insanity))
I am still kind of shocked with myself. I think I am about to book a flight to London to see Steve and Jason in concert.
And it all started with [livejournal.com profile] evil_witch666 and me talking about Jensen's newest film project and ended with talking about going to London.

OH MY GOD. I can't believe I am really doing it.
*is floored*

***
Oh and swimming!!!
[livejournal.com profile] blue_ant: Ryan is swimming the 100 breast semi-final tonight and I am trying to tape it (and maybe make some screencaps).

It's good see swimming again.
Nathan!
Wheeee.

ETA: Wheee boys!! WR. Ryan and Nathan in the relay. *bounce*
the_milky_way: (Larsen)
I so need a new VCR, or a DVD reocrder or someone with aVCR/ DVD recorder.
I sooo want to tape the Short Course World Champs in Manchester next month. I totally forgot that it is in April. Whaaaaa....
I need to, Larsen will be there and I want him on tape (or DVD). Ryan will be there as well, so yeah.... (not to mention Randall, Nathan, Rachel and Julie). No question that I'll watch it but I want to have it as well...
ARGH... why is my VCR not working during an Olympic year (oh shit I need to find a solution before Beijing)??
God... *headdesk* *flails* Uhm, guess I have to save some money to buy one.

And it fits that I jusrt finished my last peanut butter M&M's. *pouts*

*goes off to search amazon for recorders*
the_milky_way: (F1 (k/h))
At least this option is out for Nando now. Massa will stay until 2010, that is if you can believe the headlines.
Why watch TV and soaps when you have it all in F1 (or any other sport for the matter)?.

Speaking of sports, the Golden Goggles Nominees are out. And I have to admit that I did not vote for either Mike nor Aaron (well okay, I did vote for Aaron in one category).
I am actually supporting RyRy and Kate Ziegler, but yeah Mike is leading so far and it's fan-vote based this year. *headdesk*
Anyway, I am just really, really amused by Mark Warkentin being in the poll as well. Dude, Mark! That is so weird.
And Klete is nominated with the relay. The USC/Trojans guys are ganging up this year.

***
[livejournal.com profile] simplydelovely: *hugs* I got your cards! Thank you!!!
the_milky_way: (wtf)
Let's just talk about the nicer things, like Holy Fuck Katie! That was cool to watch.
Mike and Ryan on a laughing fit again. I'll miss those medal ceremonies.
Grant in an interview while Larsen and Yuri were talking.
Oh sheep. The time was good but still only fourth. Anyway, faster than Erik. And eeep Yuri, that was nice.

It's over now. I am kinda sad about it.

So Ryan and Aaron are both kind of.. sad (?) that they skipped the 50m back now. Well, that happens when you rely on the relay.
It says a lot that I am more saddened by the relay DQ than by Aaron losing the race to Ryan.
And I think the ARD commentators don't like Ian. I mean first they call him fat and now they actually said Ian might have done it on purpose to get back at Mike for the 100m Fly race. WTF? I know it was supposed to be a joke but come on that isn't funny. Not at all. Poor Ian, he will be so hard on himself again. Meh.

Uhm, Go Japan...
the_milky_way: (Default)
Premonitions or what? I knew it? I dreamed about it. I saw it happen. And it happened.
OMG Ryan! Aaron lost his first 200m back race in 6 years and his world record. Of course I am sad about it but not overly. It was bound to happen and well it was Ryan after all.
I don't know but I feel sad but excited as well. I don't mind Ryan being the one. I am surprised by myself (I mean I was crying over Klete for God's sake), I would have thought that I was at least feeling more shattered or something. But it is Ryan and well the way Aaron reacted was indicating that he knew it was going to happen as well. (It's like the Crocker-Mike 100m Fly race, one of them will win it).
Oh well, might give Aaron something to do and think about. And I might not be so sad because he has the 100 title and probably the relay start.
*bounce*

ETA: Eeeeeep, KLETE!

YES! Baby!
Whoa...
the_milky_way: (silly)
and I have no idea why I am watching Live Timing. Argh...
Such a Klete-thing. He goes and wins the B-Final with more than a second over the A-Final winner (a 3:52.53 is still way off the things he usual swims but hey, faster than anybody else).
Boy, will he have problems with morning finals. And it so reminds me of Barcelona. Just a tick faster in prelims and he would a plowed through the A-Final. But no, Klete has to go and sleep during the race. *headdesk* Relay ahead. Go Peter. Go Klete!

*pokes RyRy* Are you even awake?
the_milky_way: (RyRy)
So I actually was looking forward to the US Open. And what happens? Aaron withdraws from the meet completely, Klete drops like a stone (Come one Klete, you don't need to drop like that, it is called a "start" after all.) and gets 10th in the 400m free prelims (Go Peter, you are are in the A-Final. At least one of the wolves. Yay for Vanderkaays.) and Erik gets DQed.
What they hell did Bob do to the boys? Well okay, that Mike wins the 200m back prelims was expected but Ryan not making the final? Well at leats he made it in the IMs.. oh and BJ is back? Hehe.
I guess the season is over for some of the guys.
the_milky_way: (default 2)
I promise I'll never do that again. I watched the race half with my hand in front of my eyes. I am a wreck, shivering and my heartrate is beyond healthy. But fuck it, it was Aaron against Mike and RyRy.
And I could kill them for doing that. It was a close race until the last 25m or so. Haven't been worked up over a race that much since the 2004 Olympic Trials. Goddamn Aaron!

God, someone should shoot me now.Seriously. Larsen is next and I so going to watch it. Okay Bren first then Larsen.
Excuse my while I go and be sick for some minutes.

BTW I hate C- and B-Finals at least at Nationals when I am already nervous enough. Thanks a lot for ruining my nerves a lot more than necessary. And yes I just have to bitch because it really is unhealthy to get worked up that much.

ETA 1 WOW. Holy cow Bren!
Also Aaron: meet record is cool.

ETA 2 Sheep Larsen made the team. Thank God. Even though Erik was almost 6 seconds ahead of him. But I think Larsen can do much better than a 15:11.11.
But wow Erik is back.

ETA 3 OMG JAMIE!... CW relay with Mike, Jamie, Davis and Klete. So cool. They won.
the_milky_way: (default1)
I feel random. It's probaly the heat. I want to do so many things but I can't get myself to do them. I want to redesign Klete-Keller.com and be finsihed before the Nationals start.
I want to finish drables and post them. And I actually want to start with one of the three papers I have to write.
Lazy!

Randonness ahead: I got my Sheep bed sheets. Eeep, They are yellow and cute.

***
Psyche sheet for the Nationals is out. Mike and Ryan both will swim the 200m back, or are at least registered for it. I wonder if Mike will do it this time.
Aaron sounds pretty good in the interview they posted life last night. Oh well we will see next week.
But I am happy I can watch it. I miss life meets. I really do.

***
I want to heat to go away. I am melting.
Oh wait, no.. I am losing weight because of it... Hmmm... If it just wasn't so damn unbearable.
the_milky_way: (wr (good times))
Back from the family party. Ouch my head.
We surprisingly got along okay.
***

Wow Ryan!
2 WRs today. I think Aaron should feel threatened now. Okay, it is Short Course but still that was freaking fast.

Pats Larsen. Poor thing.
*hugs*
Edit: He is taking it as training? And he is sick? Okayyyyy.
the_milky_way: (default 2)
A Ryan Lochte Pic Spam.
2 reasons.
For [livejournal.com profile] callmecayce because she got me all those great pics of Angel :). Thanks. ♥♥
And because Ryan deserves it.

Pictures from yesterday, the WR race )

Ryan and friends )

***
Jason will not swim in the relay (if they should make the finals). He was last in the 100 semifinals. Ouch!
So, seems like Nick will swim in the finals and the relay then.

***

I. Love. Supernatural. That's nothing new. But the music. OMG the music in the last episode. *loves the show even more*
the_milky_way: (moody (bäähhh))
The swimming Gods are against me or something.
My recorder stopped taping yesterday and the only race missing is Ryan's world record race. Pouts* That is so mean.

And today they rescheduled and showed the last stage of the Tour de Basque instead. I was pissed until the minute Angel started to look good.
And damn he won. Not only this stage but the whole damn Tour de Basque. Yay.

Anyway, tomorrow the same. I hope 20 minutes more for the starting and ending times will be enough to let me tape the last day tomorrow.
I won't be home but I am so not missing out Larsen and Yuri. Nope
the_milky_way: (cool)
What I learned today:

Ryan looks thin. But hey, he won! YAY
Larsen saved bronze. *pats*
Jayme is cute again (thanks for cutting the hair), not that he ever was not.
Yay Nick! That was good in the 100 but what the hell did you do during the relay?

Grant is now Brent Hackett and the Eurosport guy shouldn't be allowed to have our ex-national coach as a co-commentator.
But I think I need the laughs I get out of it. She is Stev's coach as well.
Oh and Germany is not with Arena anymore but with Adidas.

Markus and Randall don't speak. Didn't even look at each other (shaking hands and not looking at each other is... strange. For them.)
There was ice, seriously.
Randall was busy talking and joking with either Matt or Helge. Huh? I missed something.

***
I hate Shakespeare. No, that is not true I hate the paper I have to write about him and the film I have to watch for it.
BORING!
the_milky_way: (nick brunelli)
So Shanghai Day 1.
Randall advanced to the finals. Good boy :=)
Arkardy! :)

Ryan didn't have such good swims in his not so favourite events. But he had an awesome relay leg. Didn't help much though, 'cause Jay was kind of slow.
But bronze in a freestyle relay at World Championships is really good. Tony is needed. Nick did great though.
*hugs RyRy*

Kaitlin though had a much worse day then RyRy. She cost her team the gold. Ouch.

I am still trying to convince myself that I am only watching because of Larsen.
It's just nice to see swimming live again.
