It might have something to do with the series finale this week. I'm just trying to repress that thought as much as possible, so moving on...

I've been unfriended today. This wouldn't even be worthy of mention if I weren't currently living the NIN song Every Day is Excatly the Same and this happened to be a welcome diversion. Although I really like the reason for the cut which is, and I quote, "If ppls won't comment in my personal entries, I will cut them. I checked my last 5 personal entries and noticed that none of you had commented, so yeah I do keep an eye who comments and who don't." Obviously, I won't apologize for RL, but that's not even the point. Anyone else get flashbacks to school when you had to read Orwell's 1984 or is it just me?

Well, not every day is exactly the same. I feel like crap today, mostly because I've got a sore throat which developed spontaneously between getting coffee and actually drinking it. And it went downhill from there. The weekend will probably be a waste this way. I highly doubt I'll be okay tomorrow, let alone Saturday. Then again, the weekend will probably be a waste anyway what with having to work on Saturday. Fun times ahead, I tell you.

Comments (and responses to such) might still be forthcoming this weekend. Gotta do something while sniveling on my couch (and I just know I will while every one is enjoying the weather).

Yeah. So nothing new there, really. I need to get up in five hours. I've known that all day. So why am I here watching BSG like there's no tomorrow? At the rate I'm going, I'll be current just in time for this week's episode.

Alas, time for bed now. Has been for the last three hours, actually. Will I ever learn? Probably not. Prepare to listen to me whine about severe lack of sleep tomorrow. Or today. Whatever. Later in any case.

I hate it when the muse kicks in in the middle of the night and I can do squat about it. Now I'm tired like hell and don't even have anything to show for it. Thank God it's a short day at work. Anything else would likely kill me.

Also, the BF will be here later today. Unless I can convince him to watch the undubbed BSG version I've got, I'll have to cope without the show for two and a half days. But then, the BF will be around! I think we'll come up with something to do even if he doesn't like BSG. *g*

Ouchie...

I made the huge mistake of reading until midnight when I had to get up at 5 a.m. Let's just say my icon is very apropos.

@[livejournal.com profile] ufp13: The package arrived. *does what passes for dancing in her current state* Thank you! *hugs* I just haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Brain is mush.

Will properly update once I'm caught up on sleep. Headin' off to bed now.

Being sick has its perks, spare time being one of them. Now that I feel recovered enough to spend long periods of time reading, I've been doing exactly that. I was going to start with the Midnight Breed series, which [livejournal.com profile] ufp13 recommended to me before Christmas, but I got sidetracked by Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series. I need a new addictive series like I need a hole in the head, but there you have it. I can't wait for book four. *wibble*

Kiss of Midnight was an interesting read, but I've quickly developed a love/hate relationship with the book. On one hand, I didn't like the male lead at the beginning -- still not sure I do now that I've finished reading -- and kept putting the book down. On the other, though, every time I did put the book down, I couldn't stay away for any length of time. I still needed to know what would happen next, although some of the plot was easily guessed. I know I'm going to give book two a shot. But, if it doesn't convince me from the get-go, I'll know this series isn't for me, after all. Which would be a first, given the subject matter. ^^

Speaking of creatures of the night, I've also managed to watch Twilight. On the plus side, I think it's better than the book. But then, I think I would have been mighty confused without having read the book beforehand. There were scenes which only made sense to me because I remember reading about them. Possibly, this problems stems from trying to adapt a first-person narration to the big screen. Obviously, you can't do constant voice-overs as that would be annoying as hell. But part of the charm of the book -- and we've already established that I was sorely missing something resembling a plot, so there was something else keeping me reading -- was the very well done first-person narration, and that was lost in the movie adaptation. A pity. Still, I enjoyed the movie for the cast which I mostly liked, especially Bella, Edward, and Alice.

I haven't done a whole lot aside from reading these past five days. I didn't feel well enough. But I'm getting better, and it's about damn time, too.

Happy New Year to everyone! Yes, I'm late. But look on the bright side, it's still January.

I've finally finished reading Twilight. Plot, where art thou? )

Also, I'm sick. Blah. Damn weather. Damn cold weather, I should say. If it weren't for the snow, it'd be depressed right about now.

  • I've been on vacation for three hours and thirty-eight minutes, and I haven't got around to relaxing yet. Then again, the apartment is bright and shiny now.

  • My flist has made me aware of Majel Barrett Roddenberry's death. Is it just me or has this year seen a lot of prominent deaths? :/

  • More cards have been posted. If you're lucky, they'll arrive tomorrow. Same goes for the US/UK cards, although I'm actually only hoping they'll arrive before Christmas. Anyone got theirs yet?

caffey: ([misc] headache)
Hello, my second name is Procrastinator, and I'm still not done writing all my Christmas cards. On the bright side, all the non-German mail went out on Tuesday. Except for one. And that's only due to the fact that I didn't buy enough cards the first time around and then missed to buy another stamp. Slightly scatterbrained here. I can only hope that I'll still reach its destination this year.

If you're German, haven't got a card yet but are expecting one, I've still got three on my desk. And if you're not expecting one, let me repeat: I've still got three on my desk. It's a really good thing that I tend to save all emails I've received.

Other than that, I'm SO ready for my vacation. I haven't had a day off for relaxation since April and I'm way overdue. This week sucks -- mostly because it's the week before my vacation and I can't wait to have two whole weeks off. Sorry. That needed to be said.

Currently reading: Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight"

Progress!

I feel like I've almost settled enough to actually get back to having something of a social life. It's been so long I'm just the tiniest bit scared.

Not having to deal with all household chores all the time definitely has its advantages. I've got a whole lot of time at this point which I'm still filling with doing things (mostly) directly related to moving. For one thing, I desperately need a new wardrobe. I didn't even take the old one when I moved which means I'm currently living out of cardboard boxes as far as clothes go. No fun 'cause I'm always looking for the thing that happens to be at the very bottom of the very last cardboard box. Murphy's law and all.

Also, I've got more stuff than I thought. I still haven't found a place for everything, although I'm certainly getting there. Living within spitting distance of the local IKEA doesn't help me much, however. There's very little I'd even consider buying from them; my trip last Wednesday was a total waste of time.

Aaaanyway. Please also consider this a reminder to post right here (comments are screened) if you want a Christmas card (well, seasonal card, rather) from me. I plan on sending them out this Wednesday, Dec 10.

BTW, I'll email my new address incl. phone number to the usual suspects as soon as I've got time and remember to do so.

I was going to entitle this post, "I'm still alive," but I've already got too many of those posts floating around my LJ. Very creative ain't it.

Fact is, though, I'm still alive. *waves madly* I'm just up to my ears in work and other problems - like moving. I've got less than two weeks to get my stuff in order so I can move out of this hellhole and into town. Still trying to figure out how I'm supposed to do all that, work, AND sleep. Any suggestions?

Alas, I've got so little time these days, I haven't read my friends page in, well, a month. And I don't have time for it now, either. I've got a doctor's appointment in twenty minutes. Mea culpa, oh flist of mine. *hangs head in shame*

In other news, I've somehow managed to watch Wall*E. It's my new favorite movie. Eeeeeeve. :D

Well, gotta run. Have a good one, everybody!

I've called in sick today. I didn't want to. I haven't been sick all year and if it had been up to me, I would have continued not to be sick for the rest of the year. Sadly, I don't ever get a vote.

Colds really do suck.

So, what the hell do I do with all this spare time on my hands?
caffey: ([voy] boom)
Strangely, I'm not panicing yet. Possibly because I'm medicated up to my ears with things I can't even pronounce.

I hate being sick, especially with a common cold. At least if it were something serious I'd know why I'm expending all this energy (that I don't seem to have in the first place) on getting better. It seems a lot of effort for something as insignificant as a common cold, although right now I might disagree. My nose is running non-stop which means I'm running on empty. Sleep? Abstract concept - even more than it usually is.

I shall get around to writing as soon as you no longer need a surgeon to separate that tissue from my nose.

Looks like my life is slowly going back to normal. Once it's hit that state, I'll actually post a proper update. In other words, yes, I'm still quite alive, thank you.
caffey: ([misc] *RRRRR*)
As I'm headed to the boyfriend tomorrow morning, I won't be around to update my journal or comment for about a week. Boyfriend of mine and I have a bit of catching up to do. *bg* And LJ won't even make it on my list of priorities. As it should be.

So, Happy (early) Easter, friends of mine! :)

3 hours 14 minutes till vacation time. 23 hours 7 minutes till I see the boyfriend (if my train is on time). *squee*

Today sucked on so many levels, I'm not even sure I comprehend all of them.

In response, and because I'm just too damn tired to go out and have a good time, I'm going to tackle the LJ layout thing. Though that might involve lots of swearing and hair-pulling because I haven't touched HTML and CSS in forever.

Wish me luck.

Or hide all sharp and pointy objects.

Or maybe both.

So I went ahead and joined a gym near work. I will not be in Berlin over Easter, though, so I decided on April 14 as my first appointment with a personal trainer.

Today's lunch break is now reserved for shopping. I have nothing sporty to wear. Wonder why... *coughs*

Can I just say I despise not having a DVD drive at work? Especially because everyone else seems to have one? I'd love to (sort of) watch my music DVDs at work.

You may or may not have noticed that I've posted daily since I made my reappearance. And yes, it's part of plan for not dropping off the face of the earth again. Another part is me upgrading to paid account status on Sunday. Although admittedly, that was partly due to my need for more than just six icons. Ads suck anyway.

Screw work. I'm leaving for home now.

Weekend, here I coooooome!
