Camp Sparkle: Possessed & Undressed

I've been back home from Camp Sparkle for a week now and I still miss everybody and why can't there are people that cook for me every evening???

Camp was awesome. Brighton was fantastic, there was so much to do and so much to see. The house was fine too. Well, except for the tiny, tiny fridge and only three bathrooms for 16 people and the incredibly loud seagulls. But other than that I quite liked it. And the house was so close to the beach and to everything else really.

I had such a good time and it was so great seeing everyone again! I love you and I miss you all! <333

Thursday, adelate, ihearthings_ii and I went to London to see Colin Morgan in The Tempest. The play was brilliant (never seen it before) and all the actors were fantastic. And we managed to see Colin and get his autograph after the play. :D

For some reason, we didn't really watch a lot of sparkly dance boy footage. Instead we watched pretty much of Dante's Cove, which is so hilariously bad. The acting! And the plot! And all the naked people having sex! A+++ entertainment really.

Can't wait for next year!

Have some pictures over on my tumblr:

*I played those Dixit cards knowing that everyone would get it immediately. But everyone's reaction!!! So worth it! ;D

Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are.

I'm still mainlining Fringe and only two more episodes and I'm all caught up! This makes me sad, because then I have to wait like everyone else for new episodes. DNW!

This show makes me flail so much! Just finished watching the Collapse )

Series 4 of Merlin is awesome as well! Collapse )

My brother is cute and annoying at the same time! He makes me give him the current episodes of H50 and NCIS:LA, because he doesn't want to wait for them to be on TV here. He's watching them in English, because he doesn't want to wait!!! Anyway, he's watching the episodes (he's a couple episodes behind, because it does take him longer to watch things in English) and then he calls me and asks me stuff about plot points and little things, even though he doesn't actually want to know these things.

He wants to watch unspoiled and he still calls me. I guess, it's his way of being a fanboy and flailing about the shows. Heh.
chris - talk to me (jchalo)

For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

Haven't updated in two weeks. I'm still alive (in case you were wondering) and I've started feeling better since my last post. I'm just feeling a bit antisocial.

I've mostly spent my time watching all my shows, acquired a couple new ones. If you haven't, you should really check out The Fades. It's a British show and really, really awesome! Unfortunately, it's only 6 episodes and 5 of those have already aired. Woe!

A teenage boy named Paul is haunted by apocalyptic dreams that nobody can explain. As if that weren't terrifying enough, he begins to see spirits of the dead, known as The Fades, all around him. The Fades can't be seen, smelt, heard or touched by other humans. When an embittered and vengeful Fade finds a way to be human again, it's up to Paul to stop him - and all of the dead - from breaking back into the world and destroying the human race.

Along with the popslashy side of my friendslist I was so, so happy when I heard that all 5 guys from NSync got together for Chris' 40th birthday! The first time all of them got together in years! So happy making! I just wish we had pictures! <333

I can't believe Chris is already 40!!! When did that happen? (Happy Birthday, Chris!)

*
Speaking of happy-making, this series of Merlin just rocks! So much love! <333
And the latest episodes of Community and Psych were awesome, too! :D

This weekend was Blizzcon and apparently we're getting playable pandas in the next WoW expansion! Pandas that are monks! I like pandas. :)

Forever is composed of nows.

This past week I had the stomach flu. It started on Tuesday the exact moment after I came home from work and closed the behind me. After that and through the night I spent a considerable time in the bathroom (I couldn't even hold water down anymore). The rest of the time I was lying down, because even sitting upright made me feel dizzy and sick. Let me tell you, the whole thing was pretty disgusting! Urgh!

Ate only Zwieback and soup on Wednesday and Thursday. I wasn't really hungry anyway. Stayed home on Wednesday, but decided (against the advice of pretty much everyone) to go back to work on Thursday. It wasn't too bad. And on Friday I hate ate (ate not hate D:) normally again.

I'm not really prone to stomach issues, so this came totally out of the blue! And aren't you all glad that I told you aaaalll about it? ;D


I've yet to read most of the Merlin big bang stories! I'm so far behind! D:


And I'm still playing lots and lots of WoW. :D

I just need enough to tide me over until I need more.

Thank you so much, sperrywink, for the Chocolate Torte vgift! *hugs tight*

-- Someone posted this little story at the Merlin kinkmeme: Arthur: a slug. Arthur and Merlin are slugs. And they have slug!sex! :DDD

-- Apparently you can now buy the Winged Guardian at the Blizz Store. It looks awesome and I'm so very, very tempted! 20 Euro for a virtual flying mount? Hmmm. But so very pretty!

Speaking of WoW; I'm still working on Loremaster. And I think Blade's Edge Mountains is the worst zone ever! I was stuck there for ages! I just couldn't find anymore quests, but I finally finished it today. Yay. Just one more zone to go in Outland and then it's off to Northrend. Thankfully there's not much left to do there.

-- Starting tomorrow, there will be direct flights between my home city and Berlin (Airberlin) 5x a week. I might have to fly to Berlin sometime in the fall! :D

-- Since the weekend I've read a few Popslash stories again. I haven't read Popslash in years! I blame it on all the footage at Camp! :D

The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience.

As you know, I was in Rome a couple weeks ago. I posted my pictures and all and then scolaro visited the same places in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and took screenshots and then did a comparison Rome 2011 vs. Rome 1499! You can find the post here. It's amazing and cool! :D

fuzzytomato02 wrote this awesome Merlin story for me! It's got Merlin wearing glasses and Arthur trying to seduce Merlin in the library. Hee! You should all read it! :D

Oh, and David Boreanaz is now on twitter. First day on twitter and he's already posting pictures of corpses, well, one corpse. ;)
miranda is shocked (elsmoka)

In these matters the only certainty is that nothing is certain.

After the dental surgery on Wednesday, my face was pretty swollen. By Thursday morning my upper lip had doubled its size! The doctors warned me about it and I had ice packs at home, so that helps. And thankfully my face looks normal again! Yay!

And it's back to work tomorrow. I really don't want to. I enjoyed my days off, even if I didn't accomplish anything of all the things I wanted to do.

Illusion is the first of all pleasures.

1) Being in Merlin fandom and then playing WoW and bringing a tribute to Uther's tomb will never not be funny.

2) Also, it's Brewfest in WoW land. Lots of drunken toons running around.

3) This week pretty much all of my shows are back! \o/ And I think I've got two new shows to watch as well. I'm not sure if I'll keep watching House.

7) Yesterday, even though I haven't seen any of the previous movies, I watched Collapse )
merlin/arthur - where the magic happens

Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.

1) Friday was apparently let's-compliment-Bettina's-hair-day at work, which is weird, because my hair isn't all that awesome. It's fine and sort of curly hair and I never know what to do with it.

2) It's been almost a year since I've torn the ligaments in my right ankle and it healed quite nicely. But for a couple weeks or so now, it's been hurting again (not bad, though) and there's swelling. Bleh.

3) I went shopping yesterday and bought clothes for way too much money. But, new cute clothes! \o/

4) I may have accidentally bought a concert ticket on Friday. But there was this huuuuuuge button (like, really, really huge, so huge that the whole website was just this one button... um...) that said "click meeeee! you know you want tooooooo" and naturally I clicked. And now I've got a confirmation in my inbox that says that I've bought a ticket for the Adam Lambert concert in Vienna in November. That button was really awfully large!
(@rikes (and everyone else please ignore this part): even though it said that there weren't tickets available anymore, checking back really payed off. Whoo!)

5) Yesterday was Merlin day! Wohoo! Collapse )

merlin and arthur #3

It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.

1) Happy (belated) Birthday, elfy and fleurrochard! I hope you both had a great day! *hugs*

2) Happy Birthday, digital_diva! I wish you all the best! *hugs*

3) On Saturday I visited [personal profile] bingeling at the Ars Electronica and in the evening we went to see the Klangwolke together. The Klangwolke was awesome, there were trains and people dangling from a helicopter and music and trains on ships and fireworks!

4) Going to meet up with [personal profile] bingeling again tonight before she leaves tomorrow. \o/

5) Can't wait for new Merlin next Saturday!!! :-D
