herzverstreut_bu: (Misc - berlin is for lovers)
The BVG, Berlin's public transport company, went on indefinite strike today. That means no subway, no tram and very few "emergency buses", mostly to the airports. FANTASTIC. Fortunately the S-Bahn is still running and covers the most important spots, but you still have to change trains a zillion times and/or walk for ages. For example, to get to work I'll need to switch trains (one of them at Friedrichstraße, which is crowded under normal circumstances and will be PACKED today) and then walk 15-20 minutes from Bahnhof Zoo to the office. I don't even know how to get to the In&Out meeting next Tuesday if they're still on strike then. What? I'm used to an extensive and convenient public transport system, dammit!

Dear BVG,
Your tickets are ridiculously expensive, there has to be some money in there to pay your workers. Please hand it over soon, because fully packed S-Bahn trains are no fun.

Just now there was a four-man-band randomly marching down our street. They had a trumpet and guitar and accordion and... something else, I only looked when they had already passed our house, and played some really pretty lively tunes. Occasionally they stopped to serenade people looking out of their windows. It kind of made my day. :)

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!

- New layout, again: [livejournal.com profile] scatterheart. It's still not exactly what I want, because it seems impossible to find any good-quality pics for a carnival or maybe a burlesque theme*, but at least it's customized and the text even comes from the same song as my LJ name.

- So, so, so tired. Apparently weeks of rarely sleeping more than five hours per night are now catching up with me, damn long bright days and my overactive brain. I'm planning on going to bed early today, let's see how that works out. :|

- I actually got our whole Earthdawn party into some dumb situation yesterday, thanks to being too tired to think. Cut for dramatic retelling of RPG plots. :| )

- Bandfandom pimp-post of doom should be ready for posting tomorrow, in case anyone cares.

- ETA: *facepalm* And a happy, happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] frayen and [livejournal.com profile] aqua_chuu! :) ETA 2: And to the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] rosi_smaabu, too. *is blind*

Also eta: I've said it many times before, but [livejournal.com profile] shiroi_chi is possibly my favouritest person ever. Because she called me after the Helsinki MCR concert tonight and spent half an hour squeeing about Frank grabbing Gerard's ass (and other stuff! Seriously.) And it filled me with so much GLEE. OH BOYS. Oh Chi. LOVE.

*My desire for a layout with that theme has nothing to do with my rekindled Panic! love, by the way. I'm not that far gone yet. :-p

So, Pride parade was... wet. Wet, but fun!

Report and photos )

We were really, really glad to get home afterwards, though. Everyone was wet, tired and hungry, so we had some pizza, randomly watched 3x09 of Queer as Folk, Dana and me both took a nap, ... and then suddenly it was 7 p.m., which was the time we had apparently planned to meet up with Shiva for the Midsummer renfaire.

Some more pics )
herzverstreut_bu: (Heroes - Are you?)
I finally got to watch the latest "Heroes" and - wow. That was... beyond awesome, really. I'm not exactly coherent, but I can offer some thoughts: Conclusion: I can't wait for the next episode! )

Know what's also sort of awesome today? Real life, surprisingly. Because... )

Oh, also? I finished "Stone Butch Blues" and seriously, if you could marry a book I would be on my way to Vegas right now. That novel touched me in ways I can barely describe. I'm actually re-reading it right now to excerpt all my favourite parts and get my thoughts in order, so expect a long gushing post some time in the near-ish future.

Love you all, and promise to get back to regular reading and commenting once I've gotten rid of the wrack that is my computer. ♥
herzverstreut_bu: (Oz - O'Reily - LotD)
First, I'm late once again, but still - belated Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] citibyrd!! Have a fabulous new year! ♥

As you might have noticed I'm sort of absent lately, which is part worry about my computer (I don't dare running it for more than half an hour at a time or so), part busy times at work, part the nice weather, and part general blah-ness about anything and everything. So if there's anything you think I should have seen/commented on, but didn't, please let me know!

Recent fandomy stuff: I lovedlovedloved the new Heroes, but as usual don't have a lot to say about it. Except for this )

Supernatural was a lot of fun and I crave crossover fic now. Come on, two brother in/breaking out of prison? Dean/Sam/Michael/Lincoln(/Ryan/Cyril) OT4(6)! (Only not really, because I don't ship Michael/Lincoln and Ryan/Cyril is just wrong, even for my standards.) I'm sure someone must have done this already? Otherwise I don't really have a lot to say, again. Sorry for being a bad fangirl these days, you all are much more eloquent than I am, anyway.

And some more OZ babbling, up to 4x07: In conclusion: those guys are hot )

Now I'll call my mom, and then maybe head off to the park for a while. See you!
herzverstreut_bu: (Disney - Happy Birthday!)
Drive-by-post to wish a Happy Birthday to the most fabulous [livejournal.com profile] bliss_! :X Have a wonderful day with lots of fun, love and presents!

(Now I shall have dinner, watch some "Friends"> with Dana and Nora and finally relax from a super-sucky workday, the long-winded rants over which I will spare you today. I have no idea if that sentence was grammatically correct. :| Actual content to come when... uh, I actually have something to say. Maybe once I watched more Oz. (Sadly I'm dependent on merciful people like Jonas to supply me with more episodes, otherwise I'd probably be finished with at least season three by now. Maybe it's a good thing I can't do that.)
herzverstreut_bu: (SPN - Comic - Metallicar rides again)

I have two of my favourite people, several more waiting in Siegen, tapes and a tiny new mp3 player with good music (128MB, but it was 13€, so that's my early birthday present to myself) - the trip can begin. :D See you all on Sunday or Monday! Don't forget to vote at [livejournal.com profile] spn_iconathon! ♥

Dear Versatel,


No love,

And you, too, postal service )

(So, if I just randomly stop being around some day in the near future, they will have cut the connection and Arcor will probably need some time to react and do the new one. I WANT ONE DAMN THING TO GO SMOOTHLY FOR ONCE, DAMMIT!!)

*flails* )

ETA: Know what? You should go read [livejournal.com profile] marishna's recap, because she says everything I want to say but could never put so eloquently. And she has pretty caps.

In other news, I caught the cold of doom, complete with stuffed nose, sneezing, coughing, headache, nausea, achey body and trouble sleeping. Right on the weekend that I planned getting some stuff done. YAY! Only not. *stuff self with some more vitamin c and goes back to bed*
herzverstreut_bu: (SPN - Sam - Hmpf!)
It's Friday the 13th? That's explains a whole lot. *hmpf* Kidding, I honestly don't believe in the unlucky day thing, but seriously - I slept for maybe three hours tonight, then rolled around in an icky half-awake state for two, finally decided to get up around 5.30 am, zapped through the channels (nothing but crap) and read a bit (Good Omens, not crap at all) and checked if a SPN download was up yet (it wasn't). Then finally got back to sleep around 7.30, to wake up again at nine.

Now I'm feeling tired, icky, I have to move more boxes today and there's still no SPN available anywhere. :(( (Torrents hate me. Today they don't, it seems. :D YAY! *runs off to watch* They do, after all - fucking file is corrupted. :(( ) Is it because half the people are at Wincon? *jealous* I can't even take part in [livejournal.com profile] win_non_con because I'm too busy. :(( ... God, I've really gotten into this fandom, haven't I? AND I LOVE IT!! Excuse me if I'm rambly today, that happens when I'm tired.

Here, have some [livejournal.com profile] spn_fridayfive. *makes thoughtful face* )
herzverstreut_bu: (QaF - Fun!)
As you might have noticed, I'm back from the festival - tired, slightly sunburned, but definitely happy. :D Let me tell you all about the weekend:

And it's all Medusa's fault. (Photos, beware!) )

Again next year, no question. This was, to say it with Trisha, like coming home. ♥
herzverstreut_bu: (QaF - Fun!)
This is me, signing off for the weekend. \:D/ Work now, and then it's off to M'era Luna.

Weather is looking good right now (though with the way it's been schizophrenic those last days that's not saying much), and my hair is made of awesome. (Black-violet-that's-really-mostly-black plus dark pink tips and bangs plus [livejournal.com profile] evil_trisha being an awesome hairdresser = ♥ ♥ ♥) Photos later.
herzverstreut_bu: (Bill and Ted - party on!)
Stefan managed to convince me that it wouldn't hurt him to borrow me the money until my missing pay situation has been worked out (thank you again!!) Just got a call from Mom, she got my old card back today and printed my account statements, and it looks like my payment really was sent to that account. *grumbles* So I'll see that it's transferred up here asap. Anyways:

Look what I've got! )

Holidays! \:D/ Two whole weeks off from work, oh joy! There's a bunch of things I need to do (clean my appartment, get some paperwork done), but mostly it's finally time for relaxing and being creative. And I sort of am in one of my rare writing moods, so if anyone wants to inspire me, that would be fun! :)

Comment with a fandom, pairing (or just character) and some prompt (lyrics, a quote, a concept, ...) and I'll write your a drabble (or maybe even a ficlet). :)
Or maybe I'll draw you something (most likely stick figures :-p ) or do a manip - in other words, I'll creatively interpret your prompt. *is such an artiste* Humour me? ;)

Fandoms I'm willing to do: QaF US, VM, HP, Angel, Firefly, Lost, Supernatural (note: I'm only up to episode 1x15, so I can't say if fic there would be any good), The Tribe. I might do non-fic things for LotR and Doctor Who (new series), too. :)

P.S. Dana and Trisha - Yes, I am trying to get something together for the RS challenge. ;)

P.P.S. I couldn't care less about Lance Bass, but his coming out (however unsurprising) makes me happy. More celebs need to make a stand and get out of their closets.

ETA: Btw, Berliners - is anything planned for the watching of Pirates of the Carribean 2 already? Because I'm faaaar too tempted to go see it tomorrow night already.

There is wind! Like, the air is moving, and it's vaguely cool, or at least cooler than it was before, and I might actually be able to sleep now. Ok, if those stupid people in the yard stop babbling and... shattering glass? Uhm. Anyway - YAY!

This random announcement was brought to you by "Sandra had too little sleep and is very hyped up about tomorrow, when much fannish fun shall be had with awesome visitors" (Those visitors being [livejournal.com profile] novafairy, [livejournal.com profile] nebulein, [livejournal.com profile] lennongirl (who spontaneously decided to join us for a day, yay!) and [livejournal.com profile] luthien82. (And [livejournal.com profile] spike_wtb, if he even counts as a visitor anymore.) Together with the Berliners, I'm sure much squeeing, chatting and general fun will ensue.

Ok, enough spam. Work tomorrow. *sigh* Just one more little thing - if you feel like telling me your unanonymous honest opinion, here's a meme where you could do so. Yes, I'm an attention whore, why do you ask? ;)

Rocky Horror last night was awesome. Great atmosphere, fun mix of freaks and "normal" people and all ages and everything. And I was in a horribly good and bouncy mood, singing along and trying to get [livejournal.com profile] kaoru_is_here to wear make-up (he refused, the spoilsport :-p ) and being all "PARTAY!!11!" Good times. Trisha took pictures which I'm going to steal once I'm back at my own computer.

Footie talk )

Ok, hijacked Shiva's computer long enough. I'm far too addicted to the net. *lol* Now for the next game and then probably some Supernatural. :)

Dammit! I wanted to post at 06:06 p.m., but now it's 06:09 already. (Edit: Or 17:54, if LJ is to be believed. Hm.) Anyways, no fire or brimstone yet, how boring. And I had to work, after all, even though schizophrenicSatan herself said I wouldn't have to. *pouts*

Uhm, yes. So much for my obligatory 06/06/06 entry. If you want something more interesting (and educational, even!) check out this awesome page full of info about Victorian London, and/or go join [livejournal.com profile] get_creative, a very new and very shiny no-pressure, high-creativity challenge/inspiration community. There's no challenge yet, but I'm sure it will be great.

P.S. Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] myemmie! :D

P.P.S. I plan on making more football icons tomorrow, to get myself (and everyone else) stocked for the beginning of the Cup, so if you have any requests, let me know!

*eep* Just watched the news, and now I know why we heard so many sirens tonight - some guy ran riot somewhere at the fringes of the celebrations and stabbed 28 people. No deaths, fortunately, but a couple of them are said to be seriously injured. This is the point where I'm glad we were on the other side of the station, because it was right around the time we went home, and who knows... :-S

That said, the fireworks were the most awesome I have ever seen. We stood on the back side of the new station, so we didn't catch any of the music and only half of the light/laser-show, but - the fireworks! They were huge and beautiful and we were so close that we stood right under them, it felt like we were in the fireworks, or in some sort of star shower. ♥ Literally, because they must have calculated something wrong and a bunch of the fireworks only burned out when they crashed to the ground. It was an adventure. *lol* But so, so worth it! I'll link to photos as soon as I find some.
