January Talking Meme

Since I totally missed it when people were doing it in December and since a few other people are doing it in January, I thought I could do it too.

So, pick a day and tell me what to write about! I will edit the post with all the topics and dates. (You can also check the comments of either posts (DW/LJ) whether a date is already taken.)

1. Your absolute favorite character of all times in any fandom and why. For keksmitmilch: here or here.

2. Your earliest fannish memory? For trobadora: here or here.

3. What's the best and worst things about Teen Wolf the show and the fandom? For [personal profile] sperrywink: here or here.

4. Do you do some form of arts/handcraft? (e.g. needle work, carpentry, painting...) Anything you'd like to learn in that regard? For [personal profile] extempore: here or here.

5. Tell us about the places you would like to visit and why. For [personal profile] turlough: here or here.

6. This is inspired by this blog I recently read about what an Australian living in Germany finds puzzling about the Germans... What do you think non-Austrians would find odd about the Austrian people? For giogio: here or here.

7. Your home town. For mabiana: here or here.

8. If you had a month of holiday and an unlimited travel budget, what trip or trips would you take? For [personal profile] ephemera: here or here.

space - the final frontier

Love flies, runs, and rejoices; it is free and nothing can hold it back.

First things first: Thank you, [personal profile] turlough and scolaro, for the lovely cards! :D

About memes:
This talkative December meme sounds really interesting, but as usual I'm way too late. And I'm not even sure I'd be able to talk a whole lot about things, also not sure if people would even leave me prompts! (I tried something similar a couple years ago, but no one asked me anything. *sadface*)

TV shows:
I watched the Psych musical yesterday and it was a whole lot of fun. Except in the middle of it, I got really tired so I took a nap (for a couple hours *coughs*) and then watched the rest. Whoops. But it was still fun to watch. :D

I find Almost Human really fun, especially the banter between John and Dorian. All the hearts around them. The cases are a bit boring, but they really make up for it. :D

Sleepy Hollow is still fun to watch. And Orlando Jones is quite the gift to fandom. Or something. And it just occurred to me that I might have mentioned that before, the gift to fandom thing. Whoops again.

Not only is life a bitch, it has puppies.

I did manage to stay up all night to watch the Oscars on Sunday. It wasn't terribly exciting, though.
Two things: Robert Downey Jr. is awesome! And Dean Pelton* won an Oscar! :D

(*Jim Rash, who plays Dean Pelton on Community, won an Oscar for the Descendants screenplay. :D)

Had a day off on Monday, because I'm too old to pull all nighters and then go to work. I slept a few hours and then I tried to stay awake until the evening. Heh.

I managed to do my taxes on Monday, submitted everything online and already got the income tax statement (or whatever the letter is called that tells you how much you get back from the finance office) yesterday. Already checked my bank account online, but so far they haven't transferred the money. Hopefully soon! *waits*

I'm feeling a bit sick, sore throat and a cough. Bleh.

I have enough money to last me the rest of my life, unless I buy something.

I've been lazier than usual when it comes to updating my journal. I think of something to say, but I never actually write it down. I suck!

-- I've been feeling sad, because this weekend was the annual Querstrich meeting. A mini slash con in Germany, which is always so much fun. But this year I couldn't go. Stupid work. D:

-- I'm also feeling mighty nervous about Camp Sparkle, which starts next Friday. It's my first Camp and I don't really know what to expect. Except for lots of sparkly dance boys of course. ;)

-- After Camp I'm going to be home for a week and then I'm off to London for a week with mabiana! I'm not yet nervous about that, but it'll come eventually. ;)

(I suspect I have some form of social anxiety, because I always get so nervous and worried about meeting people. D:)

-- Oh, before I forget! Thanks so much to everyone, who commented on my thread at the You Are Beautiful Meme! *hugs you all* ♥♥♥

-- This week, aside from the final preparations for Camp Sparkle, I'm hopefully going to see Thor tomorrow night and Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Thursday night! \o/

-- [personal profile] bingeling posted this in her journal, but I have to have it in mine as well! Because, OMG, how can he be so awesome?!? :D Collapse )

-- Just when you think Community can't get any better, you get the last two episodes and they are beyond awesome! I've watched it a few times now, but I'm still not beyond the "OMG! So much squee!" phase. The intros alone for those two episodes are awesome! The first run through, I had to stop every few minutes! *flails so much* ♥♥♥

-- Last night, I watched the Eurovision Song Contest at home alone... and with a bunch of people on Twitter! It was awesome! I didn't like the winning song at all, but there you go. Oh, and Austria ended up on the 18th place. Bleh. I do think we were better than that, but well, Europe thought otherwise (but thanks to Germany for the 12 points!).

Sometimes you can't see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others.

Stayed up all night to watch the Oscars, was nice, but it was hard to concentrate for the last hour or so. Went to back and slept longer than I intended. Probably means I won't be able to sleep tonight.

I think I've got a cold, I feel kind of miserable. I wonder if I should go to work tomorrow. I'm probably stupid enough to go in any case.

You know you're getting old when you stoop to tie your shoelaces...

...and wonder what else you could do while you're down there.


Monday morning I slipped on the ice and fell on my right knee just a few meters in front of the entrance to the building where I work. I'm fine, my knee is just a bit bruised, but luckily no one of my co-workers actually saw me fall. That would have been embarrassing.

Since yesterday I have a UTI. Fun times! Trying to get rid of it with a special tea from the pharmacy and cranberry juice.

One of my co-workers twisted her ankle last week and it turns out she's got the same thing I had in November last year with the torn ligament in her ankle. Except, she's now on sick leave for two weeks (!) while I went to work with a hurting ankle and an aircast! Now that makes me feel stupid. :-/


Meme times:
What's surprised you the most about me (if anything) since beginning to read my LJ (or when you met me IRL, for those who have)? Has anything about me been completely unexpected or have I always fit the picture of me you had in your head?
