Being an otaku is the greatest thing in the world and I'd rather give my arm than stop.
That's all I ave to say right now.

Well...

... since it seems that nobody noticed that I was gone for five days, I don't think I'll write about it.
I have other stuff to do anyway.

Aaaaaarrrrrgggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!

On Thursday, me and Julia were waiting for American Realism & Naturalism class to begin.
Some woman from the faculty was setting up a laptop for DVD playback. Apparently, we were going to watch some movie clips this day and since out lecturer doesn't really bother with lowly things such as projectors and cables, he had that woman do all the preparations for him.
Anyway.
When the woman was finished with all the setting up, she ran the video for a bit, asking us whether the sound was loud enough.
Guess what the guy in the second row replied?
That brainless, good-for-nothing piece of trash actually had the guts to shout "Could you switch it to German?"
Y'know, if I wasn't such a peaceful person, I would've jumped from my seat that very instant and strangled him. Or even worse.
I mean, HELLO?! If you expect to watch a dubbed movie, you're very much in the wrong faculty.
But then, how could you follow a movie in English when you're not even able to form two consecutive sentences without making a mistake that would embarrass any seventh-grader to their very bones?
Seems I'm expecting too much of people who are in their second year studying... what was it? ... ENGLISH!!!
But hey, who would voluntarily concern themselves with their subject outside of school? Yeah, that would be weird. Not to mention boring.
We're supposed to hate the stuff we do and avoid it the best we can. Right?
... god, these people make me so sick >_<

Save me, smartass John, save me XDDD

Why all the hatred?

I know, you shouldn't use YouTube as an indicator for the popularity of ANYTHING.
Still, I was appalled to see how many mean and simply horrible comments John's stuff gets on there.
Most of them are along the lines of "He's an arrogant git and he's not funny."

Oh, PLEASE... )

Are you an extrovert or an introvert?

[profile] rdyfrde talked about this test so I had a go to see what my score would be.



Yeah, sounds a lot like me.

If you're interested, you can take the test here.

[community profile] thefridayfive for 10 September 2010...

1. What do you really want to be when you grow up?
Well, for one, I am grown up but don't have a job or anything similar yet. I guess after graduating in 2012, I want to do something translation-related.

2. Where were you born?
At the St. Marien-Hospital (their site even has an English version!) in Siegen on August 23rd, 1981 at 7-something PM.

3. Who were you with on September 11, 2001?
My family.

4. When do you brush your teeth?
In the evening, I'm usually too lazy to do it in the morning ^_^;;;

5. Where is Waldo?
Counter question: Do you think I care? ;P

In which she owed some people one giant apology

I said a lot of stupid things yesterday and today. This wasn't the first time I did something lime this but I'll try my utmost to make it the last time ever.
[profile] silicondreams and [profile] rdyfrde, you two work hard for the money that makes it possible to do these fun things together. This is great, the both of you totally deserve it and if I ever so much as show the tiniest sign of being a stupid, jealous asshole again, feel free to kick me. Hard.
Right now, I'm not in a state to do any of the stuff you do. I'm a student, just got out of a horrible marriage and am trying to get by by myself, financially and psychologically. Once I graduate, I'll try to find a decent job that will hopefully give me enough money to travel a bit once in a while.
And, provided you two don't mind, and after all of this crap, it would still be understandable if you did, I'd love to be a part of the gang.
Until then, I'm sorry and hope you'll still want to be my friends, preferably for, like, 4759 years ;)

OM NOM NOM

Look, I made an Andrew icon ♥
I actually stole the banner from the Bizarre Foods website because I love the photo so much. He looks totally adorable, dontcha think? ;)

Okay, more useless ramblings, anyone? Here we go!

Man, my kitchen is still so horribly incomplete, not just in terms of appliances and accessories. The wall cupboard my parents had ordered for me about, uh, two months ago still hasn't shown up and the last time they came here to work on my apartment the shelf I wanted to store food didn't fit in the car. So, right now, I'm stuck with two cupboards (one below my sink and the other one next to it which also has the work surface [where I cut stuff] and two drawers) and the top of my fridge to put things. Believe me, this is far FAR too little for all the plates, pots, glasses, cutlery and so on, not to mention the actual FOOD has to go somewhere. I mean, not everything can be stored in the fridge, so what about the potatoes, onions, bread, salt, flour, sugar...
Needless to say, it's a bit full in there right now, what with it being a small kitchen in the first place. But I like when it looks like it's actually being used, which it is. The kitchen at the place where I lived until a short while ago always felt like a fries stand because most food was made in the deep fryer. Actually, the surfaces and even the floor had started becoming sticky because of all the fatty fumes. Blergh! Right now, I don't even HAVE a deep fryer and honestly, could care less about getting one. I'm trying to cook real food with fresh ingredients, not just because I finally want to learn how to do it but also because I'm concerned about me health and, last but certainly not least, my weight. Is it just me or am I starting to sound like Jamie Oliver? Well, it's no surprise since I've been watching quite a bit of him lately, and also, goddammit, that man is RIGHT. But I'll maybe elaborate on that some other time.
During the past ten years, I've taken on about 25 kg (about 50 lbs) which is just HORRIBLE and I've certainly noticed my health starting to suffer from it. I just hope it's still early enough to turn this around...

On a more cheerful note, my second try on my improvised "Khaos Kurry" (I should file a copyright for this, I tell ya XD) turned out quite nicely indeed. I managed to get the meat less chewy (Thanks for the tops, mum :*), added more onions and tomatoes to the sauce and, since, this time, I actually had remembered to buy rice to go with it, more milk to get more sauce out of it. It honestly tasted like a real dish and realizing I not only had made up a recipe, got the amount of curry right AGAIN but also improved and added to it nearly made me cry onto my plate while enjoying it.
Maybe I DO have a real knack for this? If I do, I know whose genes are at work here *huggles her mum*

Today...

... like I mentioned before, I had tog et up at 5 AM. Actually, I got up a quarter of an hour earlier to switch on the laptop and the internet and to make myself a hot cup of mint tea because for some obscure reason I was freezing my ass off.

The rest of today, with all the painful (literally) details! )

Crazy and bad-ish day much? I hope this was the last one of its kind for quite a while :|

Atrology quiz

Snagged from [profile] rdyfrde ;)



You Are the Rabbit



Like a rabbit, you are quick on your feet and fast to act. You don't procrastinate or dilly-dally.

You are ambitious, and likely very lucky when it comes to money. You know how to work hard when the time is right.



You are conservative in your decisions and actions. You want to protect and defend what's yours.

You are a kind and polite person. You make sure not to step on any toes, and if someone is mad, you get out of his or her way.




About thrtee quarsters of this are blatantly wrong.
Also, I'm a rooster, like Kai, not a rabbit :P

Name colour meme

(snagged from [personal profile] sorion)



Your Name is Yellow



Your name tells people that you are welcoming and cheerful. You are open to all the love in the world.

You are a warm person who can't help but make others feel comforted. You are truly radiant.



People see you as someone who has figured out the secrets to life. While that's not true, you do try to remain positive in the face of adversity.

You are the sunshine in other people's lives. You make more of a difference than you realize.




Woah, woah, now. Don't overdo it O_O

Tochwood quiz


Which Torchwood character are you?
Toshiko Sato You're a genius with technology, but people get the best of you. Your love life is a shambles, but that doesn't stop you from being an incurable romantic. Too bad you keep falling for the unattainable ones. You might not realize your worth, but you're loved by those who really count. Your one true failing is hesitation to go for what you really desire in life before your chance has passed you by.

This one is... almost too acurate O_o

Colorgenics

Name: Jessy B.
Date: 12/3/2009
Colorgenics Number: 75012364


You are so adamant at this time, you are not willing to concede to anything. You are dictatorial with your own ideas and the way you are feeling and there is little that anyone can do to make you change your mind, or to be able to persuade you to make concessions or to accept any compromise.

Recently you have been experiencing considerable mental anguish and turmoil. You are bored and discontent. Nothing seems to be going right for you. Even your relationships aren't working out and you don't quite know which way to turn.

You are not an argumentative sort of person and 'rather than fight - you'd switch' (an old cigarette ad cliche). But when you try to assert yourself - as sometimes you may try to do - you meet with so much resistance and effrontery that manifests itself so obviously that you become hurt, indignant and resentful. So in order to have peace and quiet you tend to become inhibited. You keep it all to yourself but deep down, you 'feel' and 'hurt' a lot.

You pretend that you are a carefree individual and that nothing really bothers you - that you are so self-sufficient that whatever problems beset you they simply flow off you as water flows off a ducks back. You are experiencing considerable stress, trying to conceal yourself from the rest of the world. In actual fact - deep down, you are not at all happy. You feel lonely and you need someone with whom you can 'Let your hair down' and share your hopes, dreams and high standards. You are imposing unnecessary self restraint on yourself. You would like to demonstrate the unique quality of your character to all and sundry.

At this time you don't particularly like yourself. Everything that you have tried to do seems to have gone wrong. This makes you feel that there is no point in trying to start again. Apart from being stressed and tense, you are angry with yourself and have unadmitted self-contempt. Your refusal to admit that you and you alone is the basic cause of your problems leads to you adopting a headstrong and defiant attitude. If you take stock of yourself, smile a little and let go, everything will turn out OK. Have you not heard of the cliche 'smile and the world smiles with you - cry and you cry alone!'?

Um... probably true ^_^;;;



You Communicate Passionately



You speak from the heart. You can't separate your feelings from what you're saying, even in a professional context.

You tend to speak dramatically, with lots of passion and emotion. It's easy for you to get swept up in what you're saying.



You like to connect with people early on so that you can personalize what you are saying to them.

When you converse, you try to find common ground and harmony. Even if you disagree with someone, you try to emphasize where you agree.

Meme stolen from [personal profile] sorion



Your Name Comes from Saturn



You are a hard worker, and you take your responsibilities seriously.

Some people may find you to be cold, but your sense of humor is hard to pick up on at first.



You have always been an old soul, and you tend to be the teacher in most relationships.

You are often too hard on yourself but only because you are trying to be the best person possible.



No, I'm not dead, just not in the mood for blogging. No idea why...

What's Your Name's Hidden Meaning?

Snagged from my dear [personal profile] sorion <3



You Are Level-Headed and Trustworthy



You are fair, honest, and logical. You are a natural leader, and people respect you.

You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hundred tries.

You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.



You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.

At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.



You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.

You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.

You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.



You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.

You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.

You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.



I like this even though it sounds a little too positive to me...
