Fedcon 23

So, I'm back home from Fedcon and I had a blast! It was a long weekend, filled with lots of awesome! Hee!

Spent time with awesome people, went to lots of panels, got autographs, bought too much and of course already bought tickets for next year! Whee! :D

And that's it! Fedcon done for another year! :D

Tomorrow after work, I'm going straight to Vienna for yet another convention. Alpha Con! With Teen Wolf people! Whoo!

Previously in my life...

I did a two week long extra job, which was quite exhausting, but yay extra money! Basically, I worked 8 hours, got home and did the same job I do at work for 4 more hours. Kudos to all the people with two or more jobs, because, damn, that's really very exhausting! Also, you hardly have any free time anymore.

After having had long hair for a few years, I chopped it all of last week. Well, my hairdresser did the chopping and the styling and everything and it looks really good! Got so many compliments! (Although, it made me wonder if I really looked that awful with the long hair.)

I cried many happy tears when Conchita Wurst won the Eurovision Song Contest 2014! I never really thought that I'd actually ever see Austria win, but how awesome is Conchita? She's great and really beautiful and I've read and watched a lot of interviews and she's just incredibly sweet and charming. And I've been a fan since before she won the ESC, I thought it was great that we sent her! :)

Oh! The reason I'm actually writing this post is because, it's Fedcon time! I'm so excited, because Nichelle Nichols is one of the guests and I'm so, so looking forward to meet her! There are tons of other guests there as well, like Alexander Siddig and Amanda Tapping. It's gonna be a great con! Whee!
Also, spending time with mabiana, chani_atreides, novalee17 and padfootie! :D
On the downside, I have to get up ridiculously early for my flight tomorrow morning. Do not want!

The weekend after Fedcon I'm going to be in Vienna for Alpha Con, a Vampire Diaries and Teen Wolf con. Not that I've ever seen the Vampire Diaries...

Don't knock the weather. (cont.)

Don't knock the weather. If it didn't change once in a while, nine out of ten people couldn't start a conversation.

On the upside, the dentist's assistant was so, so sweet and lovely and very cute. <333

It seems that both Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs are coming to Fedcon next year. I'm happy to see them both, but also a bit confused. Don't they hate each other? Maybe we're not going to see a joined panel. ;)

Even more exciting: Ray Park is coming to Fedcon! Darth Maul, my favorite Sith! :DDD

Nichelle Nichols will be there too! I've loved Uhura since I was a little girl, so exciting! :D

I had a monumental idea this morning, but I didn't like it.

Hello all, it's been a month or so. The weather is cold and rainy, but I don't mind that so much. Mostly because I'm the freak who prefers winter to summer and cold weather to warm/hot weather. Although, I don't hate the sun (as some people believe), I just hate it that the sun makes everything so hot!

Anyway, other things:

Wil Wheaton met John Barrowman at a convention last weekend and then this happened: in which John Barrowman sweeps Wil Wheaton off his feet | WIL WHEATON dot NET
I might have squeaked a little bit when I saw that picture. Hehehe.

Also last weekend at the same con, J. Michael Straczynski did a Q&A where he (among other things) finally revealed the circumstances why Michael O'Hare (Jeffrey Sinclair) left Babylon 5.

I meant to write a report about Fedcon, but I pushed it back and back. Meh. It was a very fun and long weekend, even though that this Fedcon was all about the guest cancellations. We even had two last minute cancellations (Roxann Dawson and Tricia Helfer), which was sad.

Always be a little kinder than necessary.

Fedcon starts tomorrow. Yay! I've packed most things, just need to put in the last minute stuff into my suitcase tomorrow morning.

And I have to get up so early tomorrow morning to get to the airport. But at least my mom is so awesome to drive me there! I'm feeling very guilty that I still haven't bought a mother's day gift for her. Meh.

mabiana, [personal profile] tmz_cori and I will go see the new Star Trek movie tomorrow night! Whee!

Come to think of it, it would have been awesome if Fedcon would have offered a special screening of the movie.

Anyway, see you all on the flipside! :D

There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.*

Oh, hello there, I haven't updated in ages and I'm sure you've all missed me. Or not. Probably not those that follow me on Twitter and Tumblr (I keep going to Tumblr maybe once a day where I then reblog a million things at once).

* Fedcon is in two weeks and and it seems as if there are more guest cancellations than in previous years. Cancellations are to be expected, but it does suck when it only seems to be the guests I've been really looking forward to. Meh.

Canceled guests: LeVar Burton, Alexander Siddig, Katee Sackhoff. :(((
(And Christopher Kirby, but he doesn't fall into the category of people I've been looking forward to see.)

There are still plenty of people that I want to see, but yeah.

* Camp Sparkle will be in June this year and some of us have already made plans to go to London to see Colin Morgan in The Tempest! So exciting! :D

* Work has been kind of awful in the past month. But on the bright side, the annual performance review went well. Yay.

* Got a Dreamwidth notification that my paid account is expiring in a few days. I'm not sure if I should renew for another year or not. It's not as if I post that much and of course I tend to forget to check my Dreamwidth reading list. A free account would totally suffice (except maybe for the icons). Need to think about that.

* Going to see Iron Man 3 on Tuesday! Can't wait!

* Have I mentioned yet that I now have more TV stations, which one of them is Syfy (still a very stupid name)? The fun thing is that they air like a million Star Trek episodes every day and I'm totally loving it! :D

The ironic part is that while Syfy shows Defiance only a day after the US (and you can watch it in either the German dubbing or the English original version), I still have to acquire it by other means, because it airs on Tuesdays which is usually my cinema day!

May I never miss a sunset or a rainbow because I am looking down.

I finally got my first two massages this past week and they were so good, but way too short! I got them early in the morning, which is really nice, but especially on Friday it made me drowsy as hell. And then I got a headache and for once I decided to leave work early. Hah!

For a little over a week now the fan of my graphics card has been very loud, especially when I first start the computer. Sometimes it quiets down again, but sometimes not. It's very disconcerting, but I tried to ignore it as much as possible. Well, until yesterday, because then the the monitor turned black twice while I was playing WoW. Rebooting the computer worked, but I couldn't play anymore. Woe!

Things like that always happen on the weekend! Because it was already so late, I couldn't go out and buy a new graphics card anymore. And of course, around here, stores are closed on Sundays. I will buy a new graphics card tomorrow after work with the help of my brother, who hopefully will also put it into my computer.

Of course, now that I know I can't play WoW, I really, really want to. Even though sometimes I go days without opening the game. DDD:

I just want it to work again! *whines* At least, I can do normal things on my computer without the graphics card overheating.

On the upside! I finally booked my flights for Fedcon! Whee!

And! Camp Sparkle is a go! Booked my flights and everything and this year we're going to Brighton! :D I can't wait to see everyone again!

Never eat more than you can lift.

Things of note:

-- It looks like I'm going to Fedcon again next year! Yay! mabiana, [profile] tmzcori, [personal profile] chanii, and I bought our tickets at pretty much the same time, so there's hope that we have con numbers that are close together (more chance to sit together). mabiana and I are sharing a room at the second con hotel again! :D

-- I have not seen the new Spiderman movie and I probably won't, because I missed all the non-dubbed showings. I'm not very keen on seeing movies when they are dubbed, which is unfortunate, because they dub everything! D:

-- I have seen Ice Age 4, though, which was cute and funny! :)

-- I saw Die Ärzte in June in Vienna and last week I bought tickets for the Ärzte concert in my home town in October! Yay. It's their comeback tour! The tour is called "Das Comeback", because they haven't been on tour in a very, very long time. No really. It'll be months between the current tour and the next, it's a long time. Um, yeah, what can I say, it's the Ärzte. ;)

-- Summer time means lots of people on holiday means busy time at work. I'm already exhausted. Also, the lady boss called in sick today.

-- First post in July. Only three posts in June, I really don't know how that happened. I should post more. (Yes, I know, I always say that.)

-- Yesterday morning, some fat person (=me) broke the toilet seat. /o\ Bought a new one today. At least the new one is so much prettier (purple stripes!) than the old (white) one.

-- Going to bed now, because I'm so very tired. Good night.

Fluchtwege! Umlaut! Kling-Off!*

So, maybe I should make a post about Fedcon? It's already been a week since the convention after all. Oops.

I had a really great time! Although, a four day convention is quite exhausting! mabiana was a wonderful con companion (she's always a great travel partner :D).
We managed to meet up with [personal profile] tmz_cori and chani_atreides a couple times, which was fun!
And of course, I finally met padfootie in person! I count that meeting as a success, even though she hit me within 1/2 hour of seeing each other for the first time. *g* <3
Oh! I managed to talk to [personal profile] rike_tikki_tavi for a bit, before she had to go back to work again. Con helpers, always busy!

*Only funny when you were at the con. Fluchtwege (= emergency exit) is what Garrett Wang wrote on my autograph!
