So yesterday I realized that, if you feel like you are about one second away from having a nervous breakdown for, oh, about half a year or so, you are probably right in the middle of one.

I'm sick, and it's not just because I'm watching season 5 of (he
AiTeam. I have the flu. But that's not going to stop me from killing
that Frankie guy. I'm going to kill him. I'm going to smack that
stupid smile of his right back into his face. I'm going to make him
swallow that ";ohnny" that he just called Hannibal. Hannibal Smithh.
Colonel Hannibal Smith, being called "Johnny" by that little squirrel.


I'm not a violent person, so maybe it's the fever talking. But if i
were Frankie, I'd stay out of my way right now.

Other than that, i completely love my show. My very first fannish love
ever. And it's even better today. Also. When I'm done with season 5,
I'm going to watch seasons 1,2 and 3. That's the best thing about
starting to watch in the middle of the show: that way, it doesn't end
at the weakest spot.

Sorry for the spelling, but as I said, sick on the sofa, typing this
from my blackberry, and the writing somehow doesn't appear on the
screen. MaybeI should call Frankie to fix it.
I went on a wild, online, SPN shhopping frenzy today, pre-ordered season 4 and bought all official companions, plus the tie-in novels. Which just shows what a bad fan I have been so far, because I didn't own any of the companions (except for John's journal and the demon book thingy). And I usually hate tie-in novels (fanfic tends to be so much better).

But that's what happens when they pay me all that money and give me no time to spend it all on pretty things.

Well, actually, they don't pay me all that much money, and I manage to spend it all quite well. Though much of it has to be spend for not so pretty things, like rent and the car and, well, I don't really know where it all goes. So, spending it on SPN is really a good thing.

The reason why I'm subjecting you all to these completely uninteresting mutterings about my money-spending habits is that I am still at the office and I am bored, which means that I am procrastinating, which means that I will stay longer at the office.
Dean in "It's a terrible life"? That's totally me. Only less hot male. But you better believe that it's my personal nightmare as well, only, I've gotten rather used to living in my nightmares, plus I have no exciting, heartbreaking and slightly lethal demon-hunting to go back to when I can't stand the office
anymore, so, office-job it is!

(frankly, I do prefer the office job to the demon-hunting, which may look cool on TV, but would be really annoying in real life. I mean, they practically live in a car! Where would I put all my shoes? And my DVD collection? The trunk's all filled with weapons, but even if it wasn't, I'd be hard-pressed to fit even the luggage for an extended weekend into a car that size. Demon-hunting the Winchester-way would
be filled with obstacles for me.)

So, yes, still at the office.
There really isn't anything more I can say. It's the office. It's
boring. Thus my posting. About being bored. At the office.
Ok, I shall get back to work now.
*is bored*
*goes back to boring work*

*hums more*

Working from 7:00 to 11:00 every night
It really makes life a drag
I don't think that's right.

*1: bonus points*2 if you know the song

*2: bonus points will be filed in a boring file in Oceana's boring office. They will not actually get you something, unless you can get someone in accounting to actually do some work and make your bonus points account for something.

*goes back to boring work*

I wonder if Sam will come if I call IT.

*is still not working*

Having spent about 75 hours in the office this week (this can be easily done if you just don't go home during the night), I now have a sore throat.

I find this particularly unfair because the sore throat was cause by the air conditioning (and probably sleeping not at all or only three hours per night). I didn't get any fun out of my sore throat. Last time I had a sore throat like this I hang my head out of the sunroof of my boyfriends car, drunk and singing "California Dreamin". Ok, so I don't remember details, but I know it was fun (until the next morning.)

But, I'm thirty now, and I don't get to have fun anymore.

And my throat hurts. Really really hurts. I'm on my fourth ibuprofen today and it still hurts.

I've searched the internets for household remedies, but so far, I've only found an assortment of wet packs (you wouldn't believe what people apparently wrap around their necks!) or the suggestion to drink hot, sweet rum. The wet packs are out, I'm not removing my warm scarf for anything, especially not something wet. The rum sounds...tempting... but not only do I not own any rum, drinking it would also involve swallowing, and that's not gonna happen (never thought I'd say this....)


What should I do? My throat, it hurts!

Help me, Obi-wan-flist, you're my only hope!
My current project at work sucks. It's not really the project itself,
its the person I work with. What a B*!?*!!!!! First, she gives me a
format that sucks, but doesn't want to hear why I think it sucks, then
she complains about my work not being good, which, hey, is your fault,
because I used your stupid format, B*!?*!!!!, and btw, I TOLD YOU

I'm so glad when this is over. SO GLAD.

Please let it be over now?
(brace for lesson)

IKEA blueberry soup really can't be eaten two months after the best before date.

This was an easy one, since it kind off exploded into my face when I opened it.

I should come home early from work more often, it's so educating! Who knows, maybe I'll even learn "Shirts, if put in a pile, will not iron themselves no matter how hard you stare at them." or "Earning money comes with responsibilities that include having to file your tax return one of these days."

For now, I've given up on the real food (yes, blueberry soup is real food) and have settled for chocolate. Mmm, chocolate. See, eat. Don't forget to unwrap. It's so easy!

Not my day.

Oh, forget it. It's just really not my day.

After having climbed the lifesaving stairs to finally reach the safe harbour of my appartment, I decided to stay inside. For a short moment I thought about writing, because that worked rather well last time I felt as crappy as today, but there are already enough metaphors in this sentence, I didn't want to inflict any more on Colby or Ian.

So instead I got myself a huge portion of pasta and a glass of Bailey's, and now I'm watching the rest of season 1 Simon & Simon. I loved these guys when I was a kid, but trust me, loving them now, when you don't want them to be your brothers anymore, is a lot better.

Btw, are they having threesome sex with Janet when I'm not looking (and if they are, why aren't they showing it?). What's with all the kissing? And what was that scene at the end of Double Entry, when their client comes into the office to give them the check? Just how long was that kiss? And AJ was kissing her neck at the same time???

I love this show.

And as a bonus, staying inside kept me from killing innocent bystanders, so it's all good.
(and I have season 1 of Riptide unwatched on DVD, so tomorrow should be save for the world as well.)

It's one of these days. I dreamed about being abducted with a group of school children and then fleeing to New York, naked, though nobody in the subway seemed to notice. I got up, took a shower, put body lotion on my hair instead of conditioner, noticed that I had downloaded last week's episode of Brothers&Sisters during the night and decided to skip breakfast.

And now I have to go to work. When all I really want to do is stay home and read Supernatural fiction all day long. I take back everything I ever said about this show. Even about Wendigo. I LOVE this show. OMG Dean.
And it's not only because he is so pretty. Though he is. SO PRETTY.

(Recs, anyone? Gen, het, slash, anything as long as it's not incest.)
I used to feel so at home here. And then I was without internet for a
few months and suddenly everything changed.

OK, I still feel "at home". I just don't feel as if I've completely
returned yet. My flist seems quiet, which could be because of fewer
posts, because fandoms have changed, because it's hiatus, or maybe
because people really don't post much anymore. I don't know. I know I
don't post as much as I used to, and certainly not as interesting as I
hopefully once was. By this I mean that I hardly post any meta
anymore, and this is, after all, supposed to be a fannish journal.
And as if that wasn't bad enough, I don't comment on other people's
meta anymore.

I know my personal reason for this is work: I work a minimum of 50
hours per week, often more, often the weekend as well. When I come
home, all I do is watch Tv and maybe read my flist, but more often
than not I don't have the energy to interact with people. Recent LJ
developments haven't made this any easier.

But I used to love comin home, reading and commenting, watching Tv and
then posting my thoughts and discuss them. So the lethargy needs
changing, which is why I resolve to:

- answer comments every day every second day
- post at least ten comments in reply to posts on my flist every day
- post something, fannish or not, every day

(with the exception of days where I work more than 14 hours, because
then I really am too tired.)

Maybe if I say it, it will become true. ;-)

*resolve face*

(I hope the thought of me being all fannish again doesn't scare you as
much as it does me... *g*)
This LJ is on hiatus for at least two months. I will be back, internetlessness forces me to take a break, but I'm in no way giving up this lj or my shows! Oh, I'm going to miss all my shows!
Oh well, I'll just have to have a marathon when I come back. So, have fun, write fics and be merry. Or something like that.
See you in April!
My flist does not join my Stargate squee. You are all fired.
No, wait, some wonderful people joined the squee and I will squee back at their comments as soon as I can get my head into squeeing space again.

As for firing the rest of you: I did "fire" a few people, sorry. It had nothing to do with lack of squee though, only with lack of time on my side. I also set up a filter for journals I read less regularly for the first time in my life. I'm not sure if I will keep it, we'll see how it works. I figure that this way I will at least comment more in the other journals, when before I didn't comment anywhere because I could hardly keep up with my flist, so it's a win-win situation. Everyone can still see my flocked entries, no filters there. Except for the really private one, because no matter how much I love you guys, there are things I don't really want to share with 260 strangers on the internet. Only with 30 or 40 strangers. ;-)

The reason why I'm doing an early flist spring cleaning is that I will be without internet access for at least two months, possibly more. I'll post details shortly before I leave, but I wanted to give you a heads-up. Because I'm moving into a temporary place for two months, I will not have internet access at home. And I will not use my internet at work to access lj.
*is determined*
If I tell myself often enough, maybe it'll come true.

I won't be completely gone: there are still internet caf├ęs and the occasional trip to my parents, but I will definitely not be around much. So if I don't comment anymore (and I mean even less than I comment now), don't think I'm not interested; I will be back, sometime in April. And if summer 2005 is anything to go by, working a lot brings out the crazy-mad posting and commenting me.

*glares at SG download*
Still not done! Move faster, dammit, I want my squee.
- Mininova hates me:
Error in SQL query: Incorrect key file for table 'torrents'; try to repair it

- Isohunt doesn't have the torrent yet (or it hates me and doesn't show me the torrents)

- Smith has been cancelled.
I knew this would happen. The one time I instantly fall in love with a show when it is airing, it gets cancelled after a three episodes. Oh, they don't call it cancelled, but "removing it from Tuesday night's schedule" is the same thing. I LOVE this show. I WANT this show. And what's worse, the yare replacing it with CSI RERUNS!
*makes miserable whining sound*

*wipes tears away long enough to ask*
Does anyone have the torrents for last night's BSG, Numb3rs and Men in Trees and could send them to oceana2602 @ gmail.com? Or give me a link? It might save my day a little.

I watched Vanished for breakfast (more about that later), then took the dog for a walk and tried to get some sort of order into my application stuff, to, that's right, start writing applications. Which I did.

This, of course, led to people calling me every five minutes ("Hey! I haven't talked to you in years! I thought I'd call you!" - "That's great. Did you have to choose the one day I actually get over myself and write an application???"), my printer printing smears until I cried and cursed at him, then leaning back to laugh at me (at least he's printing, now that he is sufficiently amused) and then, while I was on the phone, getting myself into a so-not-needed date for tonight over the barking of the dog, I was delivered a package (the reason the dog barked), and what do I find?

My A-Team Season 3 DVDs.
I'm really not meant to write this application, am I?

But I will be strong and resist the temptation of auto chases and gay men with machine guns. I will not watch a single episode until this application is finished. And the other one, too, the one that has to be there on...Saturday??? Uh oh.
*runs away*

Edited five hours later: Wrote and sent away one application. The other will have to wait until tomorrow, as it requires a handwritten CV, and I'm not even going to try at this time of the day. Watched the first ten minutes of The A-Team "3x01 Bullets and Bikinis", which were full of gay and Hannibal/Face love. Watched Bones.
Note to self: When will you ever learn not to watch Bones for lunch? And no, you can't watch CSI when you eat either.

Off to take the dog for another walk, and then it's the date! Yay! Which, you know, isn't a real date-y date, just me meeting a friend and helping her out with lots of stuff that I should really get paid for, but I guess that's what friends are for.
*looks at A-Team DVDs and imagines her evening with them*
1) Miami Vice made me cry.

2) I haven't watched Stargate yet. Since for the first time in a decade, the number of Stargate episodes is truly limited, I'm waiting for a special occasion to watch the ep
And it better be worth it!

3) My personal situation is difficult at the moment. I'm fully aware that I'm using fandom, especially LJ, as an escape. As long as I can keep up my life here, I can pretend that everything is okay on the outside. A while ago this escape was a good thing, but things have changed, and I know I need to make some more changes. So I'm thinking about taking a break from fandom until I find a job, only I know I won't do it. And since I believe in realistic goals, I'll start with a one-week break. We'll see how that goes.

I'm sorry for everything I didn't do. I've been trying to get myself to do this for a long time, but I always wanted to catch up on things first, answer comments, emails, etc. It won't happen, and for that I apologize. Marga, I'm so sorry to ask you to wait another week for me. Mabiana, I got your letter and the lovely Anhaenger, thank you so much. Lasultrix and Ash, I didn't forget your CDs, just give me a few more days. Everyone else, sorry about not answering comments and mails. (talk about unfinished business...)


Okay, that's it, gone for a week or so.

*waves good-bye*
I'm online, then I'm not online, then I'm online again abuot as fast as a really really tired old snail, then I'm not online. I call the Telekom and I'm online again, I hang up the phone and the connection is gone. What? Are they really trying to drive me crazy at 1 a.m.???

I suspect that they are playing tricks on their favourite customers tonight, because I distinctly heard party sounds in the background when I called the second time. But wait, oh evil Telekom fiends, you don't know me well enough. I was this close to downloading Eureka, so don't think I'm going to sleep before the downloads done! And if I don't sleep, so won't you!

*is determined*

Also, why does Mininova hate me? For the second time in a row, the search function would laugh in my face and only show me old stuff. And then I found that the Rescue Me torrent had been up all day, only I couldn't find it! Next week I'll be smart and check the index first. You don't trick me, Mininova. And if you and the Telekom can rot in hell together.
I live close to a nursing home (is that really what you call homes for old people, and why don't I know the real word, it must have come up on TV sometime?). A nursing home that is lead by nuns. And today they are having a church service outside at their little chapel. With singing. Singing, catholic church songs in the morning.

I sit here, reading slash (well, lj with the occasional slash and naked men), and they sing about god.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against religion or catholics and in general, Europe is a lot less relaxed about church and religion than other countries. But do they have to sing in front of my window? Thank god it's starting to rain. ;-)

I also feel like watching all of Veronica Mars again, but I won't. No, I will study, no Logan love and Duncan hate for me. Well, maybe one or two eps per day...
