sheepy wants to give you a flower

When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.

Thank you, thebratqueen, for the Christmas card! It's lovely! :D
And thanks a lot for the very cute New Year's card, [personal profile] sperrywink! :D

Despite this being a short week (tomorrow is a public holiday here), it's been a very long week. Last week (also a short week) was incredibly long too. But long weekend now (and I also have Monday off!) and I plan on sleeping in and being as lazy as possible!

When I step into this library, I cannot understand why I ever step out of it.

Another week with lots of Christmas mail! Yay! :D

Thank you stellamira (the little key ring is so cute), binel63, _inbetween_, tikiaceae, [personal profile] rikes, [personal profile] dirtyzucchini and raven_lore! Thanks so much, they are wonderful! <333

Yesterday was my birthdy (OMG! So old! o.O) and it was really nice! Thanks to everyone for the birthday tweets and comments and emails and vgifts and FB messages! So awesome! <333

Unfortunately, I had to work, but we had a little Christmassy celebration at work with food and cake, so that was good. And I got to leave early as well. And then my mom and my brother had a nice birthday dinner at the Mongolian BBQ. Om nom nom.

I got lots of awesome gifts as well! Books and a beautiful necklace from my friend S. My brother gave me the DVD box set for Roswell! <3 I also got wonderful wristwarmers from mabiana and a Loreena McKennitt DVD from saba1789! <333 And can't forget the combined Birthday/Christmas present from [personal profile] kriski, awesome warm knitted socks and a calendar with her beautiful photographs! <333

Oh, and almost forgot, I got flowers from my co-worker! White roses! And they sparkle! :D

We did a little Christmas gift exchange at work and my co-worker (the one that got me flowers) gave me a stuffed Cut the Rope monster. We both love that game and it's so, so cute!

Tonight I'm going to the cinema for the third time this week! So many movies that they show in English at the moment, we have to take advantage of that!

On Monday we went to see Mission Impossible 4, which had some really great action sequences. Some of those scenes probably would look really awesome in 3D.

Tuesday we went to the Sneak Preview (which is every other Tuesday) and they showed This Must Be The Place with Sean Penn. Interesting movie, quite intense, funny at times. Not really a movie I would have watched otherwise, but it's a good one! :)

And tonight we're going to see Sherlock Holmes 2. Can't wait!

You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.

This past week has been a great mail week!

If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play.

Thank you, padfootie, for the lovely card! *hugs*

Saturday evening, I had my work Christmas party. Had a very nice dinner at a fancy restaurant! Pricey, but so, so good! :D

For once, I looked really good (I rarely think so!). Very nice hair style, which I did myself, and nice make up and I got lots of compliments. :D

Although, while working on my hair there was also a little accident. I used one of those round combs and it got tangled in my hair and I couldn't get it out anymore! DDD: Was so close to crying. Had to call my mom and ask her to come and get that damn comb out of my hair. D:

She did a great job, but she still had to cut off a bit of a hair. Damn comb, damn hair. At least it turned out okay in the end.

Also, on Saturday, mabiana and I bought our Fedcon tickets! Whee!

Lots of awesome people are coming to Fedcon next year again! Brent Spiner! Jonathan Frakes! Joe Flanigan will be there again! And Kavan Smith! :D Also, Felicia Day! <3

I had the day off today and I spent it with wrapping lots of presents. Some of them will be mailed out tomorrow. Go me!

I also watched Cowboys & Aliens while I wrapped all those presents. There's really not much point to that movie, is it? Except that it has Cowboys and Aliens. ;)

You can't have a light without a dark to stick it in.

Had a good mail day today! :D

Got a lovely postcard from stellamira from her vacation in Peru! Thank you so much! <333
And lovely Christmas cards from [personal profile] sperrywink and meinnim! Thanks so much and thanks for the lovely magnets, Min! <333


Yesterday was a public holiday* here. I was pretty productive, did two loads of laundry and watched Conan the Barbarian while I wrote the Christmas cards. So, if anyone gets weird cards blame the movie! ;D

And today I mailed out all the cards, so you can expect them soon.

Now, if I was just as productive with present shopping! Woe! I have such a hard time finding things for my friends (at least I already have presents for my brother and for my mom). And when I find something, I worry that they might not like it. :/

The movie wasn't too bad either. I've been told I shouldn't expect too much, but I kind of liked it. Jason Momoa (<333) looked good in it. Although, he still looks better when he has a beard. :)


*The holiday was Mariä Empfängnis (Mary's Immaculate Conception). As I told saba1789, considering Christmas is already in a couple weeks this was definitely an alien pregnancy! Which also means, we celebrate the birth of an alien. That probably explains a lot! ;D

Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.

saba1789's fannish advent calendar mfac is underway and today's door is my guest entry! If you're curious about my random bunch of recs you should check it out!

You should also check out all the rest of the entries (and the entries to come!).

Yesterday, for instance, the 6th door contained awesome Moomin icons made by [personal profile] turlough! And a very sweet (and exclusive) Glee (Blaine/Kurt) story by [personal profile] sperrywink! ♥♥♥

In other news, I'm so far behind with my holiday cards! :((( And I'm also very far behind in my quest for presents. I just don't know what to get for my friends. :(((

On the upside, I got another lovely Christmas card! Thanks so much, ruric, for the sweet card! :DDD

If the human mind was simple enough to understand, we'd be too simple to understand it.

I got my very first Holiday card today! Thank you so much, aerisaturner! *hugs you lots*

Which also reminds me that I should get on with writing my own! *hangs head*
And it's a last call for Holiday cards from me! If you want one comment here or here!


Yesterday, I went to Passau (Germany). Spent the day at the Advent market (mulled cider! Glögg! om nom nom!) and the shopping mall. I had delicious lunch at a Croatian restaurant. So yummy!

I was a bit afraid that the weather wouldn't be good enough, because it was raining when I left. But we had really nice weather in Passau, the sun was shining and it was pretty warm too. Back home it rained almost all day.


I can't believe it's already December! Time flies by! I have the most awesomest Advent calendar. A Star Wars calendar, which is for kids, but I don't care! Because it's Star Wars! :D

Cards! Cards! Cards!

It's time for the Christmas/winter holiday card post!

I bought UNICEF Christmas/winter holiday cards and if you'd like to get one, raise your hand! If you're not sure I have your address, leave it in a comment (all comments are screened, all comments with addresses will remain screened!).

Please let me know if you'd like a neutral card, otherwise you might get a Christmassy one.

Reality is something you rise above.

I haven't posted in over a week. Oops.

First of all, thanks to all the virtual gifts I got in the past week! Thanks, dominik, elsmoka, and mumblemutter! :-D

Happy (belated) Birthday, raina_at! I hope you had a great day! *hugs*

And I got my first Christmas card! Thanks so much coreopsis! ♥

I mailed out the Christmas cards last Tuesday (or was it Monday?) and they should arrive shortly! And I also finally managed to wrap all the presents (except for one and that one's for my mom) and some of them I will mail out tomorrow. Hopefully.

Last Tuesday, the latest World of Warcraft expansion "Cataclysm" came out and I've played as often as possible last week. Collapse )
