Hi! I came back from the family visit yesterday, but was kind of overwhelmed by trying to catch up with stuff right now. I looked over all of skip=600, but would have gone crazy if I attempted commenting on much, so sorry for not really talking to anyone lately! Promise to better myself, this time for real. :"> There's also still Christmas presents that aren't done, and packets and postcards that are not sent off. I FAIL. Also, I still haven't got any concrete plans for New Year's Eve, which sort of sucks, but whatever, I'll just see what comes up. Also, after weeks of stress and a week at home with people around me 24/7, it feels completely weird to be in an empty apartment ([livejournal.com profile] nairie is still at [livejournal.com profile] luthien82's), with more than a weekend of no real obligations ahead. I thought I'd be glad about it, but it's just strange.

Random: One of the bus drivers on the way back from Düsseldorf was a total dead ringer for Brian Schechter (minus tattoos and piercings, as far as I could see). It was kind of creepy, but he was fun and kept on rambling about irrelevant stuff and making stupid jokes.

Not that random, because everyone's doing it, and we all know Christmas is aaaall about material goods (Tbh, for me it kind of is, as I'm not a Christian, usually lack the feeling for the festivity of the season, and don't care for forced family time, either.) - here's what I got this year: God rest ye, merry merchants, may ye make the Yuletide pay )

Last, but not least: Belatedly a very happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] sorchasilver and [livejournal.com profile] skylar_muc - may you have a fabulous year ahead of you!

Ok, in a minute I'm off to spend Christmas with my family in Bitburg, so this is me saying goodbye for the next week. Not like it's going to be much of a change, the way I've been absent lately, but anyway... I'll try to check in from there, but it depends on whether I'll be able to lure my siblings away from WoW long enough. (Otherwise I'll spend all the time chatting with my mom and playing Singstar, probably. Yay!)

So, HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS/BLESSED SOLSTICE/FUN-FILLED GIFT DAY/INSERT HOLIDAY OF CHOICE HERE, EVERYONE! :)

I leave you with two Christmas songs and see you in a week.

Pansy Division - Homo Christmas (NSFW! As if they ever are...)
Tom Lehrer - A Christmas Carol - "Hark, the Herald Tribune sings, Advertising wondrous things."

And if anything important happens, I'll twitter.

Since I will be on my way to my parents' early tomorrow, and it's not likely that between my WoW-addicted siblings I will get much internet time, this is goodbye until the 28th. *waves* I wish you all some fun, peaceful holidays!



Or one for the Heroes fans )

P.S. Cards are written, but will be sent out late, sorry. :"> I just didn't get around to it yet.

Finished season one of BSG )

There was also some watching of "My Name Is Earl" and I continue to madly love that show. How it's not very pc and yet always comes out positive; mocking, but not in a mean way, you know? Total feel-good show, more people should watch it.

Next, [livejournal.com profile] spn_fridayfive:

Even though it's Saturday )

Lastly, but not least - thank you for the adorable card, [livejournal.com profile] apieceofcake! ♥ Having Jared and Jensen smile at me from my wall rocks. :D And I'll keep that handcare stuff for a special occasion, thanks so much!

As for my own Christmas prep: I've written most cards (not many, but at least I'll be sending out a few), finished my [livejournal.com profile] spn_holidays contribution, almost finished the presents for my family and started on some online gifts. To do: Buy the cloth my mother asked for (she sewing me a skirt or two for Christmas), prepare gifts for RL friends, bake cookies (this afternoon, yay!). I'll be leaving for Bitburg on the 21st and be back in Berlin on the 28th, in time for New Year's with lots of lovely people. \:D/

ETA 1: *cracks up* )

ETA 2: Seems LJ is not sending me comment notifications, and if it does, they're really belated. *glares* So if there's something you think I should have replied to, let me know.

a) I made icons. Just a few, because my muses are not quite there, but I won't get around to doing any more anytime soon, so might as well post them now. Have a preview:



11 Heroes and 11 SPN all in all, found here

b) Here was supposed to be some out-of-the-ordinary Christmas music, but apparently I've burned most of it on CDs that I need to find first. :| So watch out for it tomorrow.

c) Because I'm the sheepiest sheep ever, Stuff my stocking? )

d) Off to work in a moment, and then Earthdawn tonight. Life busy.

Hi,

Here was supposed to be a little graphic wishing you all a merry Christmas/Hanukkah/Insert Holiday Of Choice, but I ended up making and wrapping gifts until past 1 a.m. tonight, and I just wasn't in any condition to do anything more than going to sleep after that. So please imagine something pretty here. :"> And let me say it without a picture instead:

I'll be off to my parents' today, where (due to WoW-obsessed siblings) I might have very limited internet access. So, a bit early: MERRY CHRISTMAS/HANNUKAH/WHATEVER YOU CELEBRATE, EVERYONE! ♥ I hope you all have a good time with lots of fun and presents and good food, and a minimum amount of stress and fighting! ♥

Also:
Dear people who are expecting postcards from me - they are (mostly) made and ready to go, but I can't afford all the postage at the moment, and I'd feel bad choosing which ones are "important" and which ones can be sent later. So they'll all be sent out as soon as I have some money, ok? ♥ And thank you so much to everyone who sent me something! ♥

Dear R/S Secret Santa receiver (You know who you are) - I'm SO SO SORRY I didn't get around to writing your story in time! (Because you so deserve some good fic!) But I'll have a lot of time in Bitburg, and I promise I'll try to write something extra-good and extra-long!! ♥

Dear [livejournal.com profile] m4tth3w - Have the happiest of birthdays! ♥

See you all in a week! *waves*
herzverstreut_bu: (QaF - just do it!)
First of all, since I'm making this entry public anyway, I want to make an announcement to the people that are expecting Christmas cards from me: You will get them, of course (in fact many of them are already done and lying next to me), but... uhm... they might turn out to be more like mid-January greetings. :"> As most of you know I'm having a few monetary issues at the moment, and I can't afford all that postage. But I will get them out eventually, I swear! Just thought I'd let you know so you don't think I've forgotten you. ♥

Secondly, mostly for me because I want to have them all neatly in one post - the requested ficlets. They're all very short, unbetaed and pretty much just a writing exercise, but feel free to read. ;)

'Maybe' - Sawyer/Sayid, 249 words )
'Second Chances' - Locke, 159 words )
'Who Needs Blue Hair?' - Ginny/Blaise, 153 words )
'No Mistakes' - Brian/Justin, 161 words )
'Nightmare' - Wallace/Keith, 103 words )
'Show Me Your Friends...' - Logan/Veronica, 514 words )

As I said, they were done just for fun and in a matter of minutes, but concrit is of course welcome. :) And if you want to give me more prompts, feel free to do so.
