It's astounding how every time I declare that I'm alive and kicking I disappear. Oops?

I've been down with the flu, though /hides behind excuse. No, really. It sucks, I'm terrible at being ill, I go stir crazy the moment the choice of being indoors or not is taken from me. I mean, laziness in general is kind of difficult for me to reconcile with my constant need to be doing something, whether it's writing or something else, but I'm getting better at it, I swear. I really just prefer having the choice, is that really too much to ask? I'm just about over it now, so, all good!

Work has been really hectic and weird and scary for the past two weeks, a lot of thefts have been happening, and let me just tell you that it's not fun in any interpretation of that word to be present while that is going on. So, iPads, phones, Apple TV, a lot of stuff have been stolen. Ugh.

So yeah. Other than working as many shifts as I've been offered this January, I've passed my exams and I've been going with my trainer a lot to help her out with the horses, which is amazing and exhausting and. I really like it, the feeling of being physically exhausted, plus I get to spend time with her, which is always all kinds of hilarious and amazing. It also seems that all my friends decide to have various degrees of meltdowns in January, which is fine with me since I have better time now than when classes start up again in February, but oh my god, so much drama.

I've also gotten the go ahead to start running again YES YES YES /cheer

Fandom wise. Well, not much is happening lately, is there? I mean, Arafes is still amazing, but otherwise? The European Fanmeet in August, though = EXCITE. It's going to be amazing, I have very high expectations for the truly tremendous amount of fangirling that will happen during those days. Nothing else, I'm afraid. J-Popcon in March, I'm working on my costumes, it will be glorious, I'm not kidding. I watched the Kurt edit of last night's Glee and I ship Kurt/Adam like mad, seriously, Adam made him giggle and feel good about himself = instant win in my book. Sadly it won't be happening for more than a few episodes, Damn you, Glee. Why can't I seem to quit you? Kurt, that's why.

But Arashi, yes, I am having an insane amount of Arashi feels lately, I blame Arafes. Intense Arashi feels, intense Ohno feels and these days, very intense Nino feels. Need to rewatch this concert forever and ever. Amen. It has made me finish Muses piece 11 (YAAAY) and I am having a lot of plots floating around in my head to boot. Woe be to everyone but especially the boys. I'm not even sorry, I just have a lot of words and a lot of feels, which in this case is an explosive combination mwahahaha.

Which more or less segues into my really huge project of posting all my work on AO3, and I am already weeping like crazy at the amounf of work - which, a lot of it is because I'm a fucker who doesn't like to make things easy for myself: A lot of the corrections that I find in the fics after they've been posted, I only edit in the posts themselves, which means that the documents themselves have the incomplete versions. Sigh. I will figure it out.

Lastly! Do I know any really awesome artists here that have a way with calligraphy and kanji?

I am going to put up a post one of these days about writing, some specific things in writing that I hope people will want to put their two cents in to, it would be really really awesome.

I miss talking to you all, I will do my best! I am leaving off this time with zomg awesome videos.

Toodles <3<3<3

Because this choreography is insanely clever and needs to be praised forever:

And this is all kinds of awesome because Face Down. FACE DOWN.

Hello hello, you lovely lot, oh my goodness, life happens!

Happy belated New Year, everyone, I hope you all got through with all fingers and other body parts intact!

I've gotten some really lovely messages the past few days(♥), and yes, I'm alive, just cramming for exams, passing exams, working like crazy and trying my very best to have some semblance of life besides all that. Work this weekend was hectic, chaotic and intense - January sales have truly started. Why never in the stores I want to pillage? But I digress, I meant to thank everyone for lovely messages and comments and I will get to them, I'm sorry for the snail's pace I'm working at at the moment! I know I owe a ton of messages, I'm sorry!

I've gotten my filthy paws on a new netbook as well, so I probably won't get any writing done until that one has been set up completely. I seriously can't wait to use a computer that doesn't need to be charged all the time!

I also got my Arafes DVD, which I will watch and flail over the minute Gati gets hers!

As I mentioned three sentences in, January sales have started, and customers this weekend were a bit crazy with it, which ensured that I had my share of crazies. I especially enjoyed a conversation with a woman, who wanted to buy a 16GB USB stick:

Customer: That's... it? It's rather small, isn't it?
Rikke: Yes, it is, but I assure you, all 16GB are there.
Customer: Are you sure?
Rikke: Quite.
Customer: But how?
Rikke: ...because that's a 16GB stick? It says so on the box, I'm sorry, I can't unpack it for you unless you're sure to buy it.
Customer: Why not?
Rikke: If I break the seal, I can't sell it.
Customer: So you're sure all 16GB are there?
Rikke: You're free to count them when you get home.
Customer: Really?
Rikke: (/mentally facepalming at this point) If you buy it and you're dissatisfied with the product, you can come back and claim it defective.
Customer: Oh, nice. But how do I open it?
Rikke: (/trying to strangle snickering co-worker and trying not to sound exasperated) Right at the middle. Where it says "pull".
Customer: Oh I see. It's rather small, isn't it?
Rikke: ....
Customer: Okay, yes, thank you!
Rikke: You can just bring it to the check out line.
Coworkers: /exploding

And the guy with the Nokia.

Customer: Do you guys have the Nokia Pio Mio?
Rikke: /blinks ...I'm sorry, come again?
Customer: The Nokia Pio Mio?
Rikke: I haven't heard about it, we don't have it here. I'm sorry, I'll check it online for you?
Customer: /waits
Coworker: What's up?
Rikke: Have you heard of a Nokia Pio Mio?
Coworker: /blinks
Coworker: A what? /starts giggling
Rikke: Pio Mio. /tries not to giggle
Customer: It's really new! I though the Pio Mio name was really cute!
Coworker and Rikke exchange glances
Rikke: /tries really hard not to laugh
Rikke: /gets idea
Rikke to coworker: Maybe he means the PureView one? The 808?
Coworker: Possibly. /snickering into sleeve
Rikke: Do you mean this one, sir? /turns screen
Customer: Yes, that's exactly it!
Rikke: Well, we don't have the Pio Mio in our store or at the website either, I'm sorry.
Coworker: /has to leave because of imminent death by attempt to smother laughter
Customer: Oh okay, but thank you for the help! /leaves

We all just started laughing really hard when he left, I really didn't want to correct him, he was such a nice older man set in his ways xD

I hope you all are having a good January <3<3<3
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Arashi - Ohno Monster)
BFF: If you show me yours, I'll show you mine.
Rikke: I think I saw a porno like this once.
BFF: Don't quote Prisoner of Azakaban 15 at me.
Rikke: No, really.
BFF: Your writing.
Rikke: The other thing was funnier.

Also, what the hell, lj, what the hell is up with the text editor, do you not want your users to actually extend the paid accounts when you do this fuckery?
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Arashi - Ohno)
Happy Birthday, Ohno Satoshi, you utterly brilliant man, I'm still hopelessly smitten and hopelessly fascinated by you, and god, you're really unfairly attractive. For this year, I wish that you stay healthy and happy and awesome and will wear lots of tight t-shirts so I can ogle your appallingly attractive figure. (ETA: On that note let me tell you that the Ohno Satoshi tag on tumblr is a very good place to be today. You know, just saying.)

I was going to write a fic to have something to actually contribute to fandom with on this lovely day, but I got sidetracked with writing something else, oops?

But most importantly, THANK YOU a million gazillion times for the birthday wishes! LJ is an assbutt that told everyone that my birthday was two days early, on the 22nd instead of the 24th, so I got lots of wishes from then on, and thank you thank you thank you, everyone, I feel really loved and all warm and fuzzy with feels, my friends are the best

Also, another fabulous album out this year, Olly Murs' new album Right Place Right Time is gorgeous and fun and so so so good, and it just got in on my doorstep, so, yay! So much good music out this year, it's been a fantastic year for music!

(Getting back to the people I owe replies to later today, seriously, I fail I'M SORRY, I'm writing assignment ;;__;; /HUGS EVERYONE)
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Shark)
I suppose it says a lot about my enthusiasm for something when the working title for the document is: "I'd really rather watch paint drying on the wall dammit"
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Lana Del Rey - color)
I have successfully survived a marathon of writing three assignments, going to work and actually managing to have a life. I can't even. Met up with a friend on Tuesday because I seriously needed to do something else than staring at my computer. Was much needed, and she decided the pink tips Gati's mom did on my hair needed to be strengthened, so I now have very pink tips again. I've been running on too little sleep and too much caffeine for almost a week now, so after work yesterday, I crashed rather spectacularly.

I wake up to a text from Gati that Arafes is up for preorder, why does this always happen when I happen to be asleep? I did get First Press from Cdjapan, though, so I'm totally okay with that <3 Also sfzlugfdjhfjdfdjk GAMMICK GAME LIVE. I am so on board with that, finally we got you, Neen. And Rain just with Ohno and no back up dancers? This is going according to my plan. Popcorn goods look good, but none of them really screams at me. Might get a clearfile if I can be bothered. We'll see!

A huge thank you to [livejournal.com profile] i_am_zan for the pretty card and the lovely, lovely words, it made me seriously, really happy, so thank you so much <3 I love snail mail, okay? <3
[livejournal.com profile] walking_orgy: I am working on it, uploading as we speak! I have not dropped any colorful commentary as probably you'd better listen and get your own impressions, yeah, no matter how much I'd like to shove my (clearly) unbiased opinions on you xD I also suck, I saw your comments last night after work, but yeah, collapsed, so. It was even a chance of catching you somewhat real time, but damn. Next time? <3

You all need to buy Lana Del Rey's new Paradise Edition because reasons. No, seriously, it's brilliant, I've been listening non-stop since it got out on Monday, IT'S SO GOOD. Body Electric is perfection, she sings it like she's aching, Bel Air and American are phenomenal, my god. Listen, it's fantastic. It's also really motivational, apparently, since I managed to finish my assignments almost three days before deadline, so. I thought Born To Die was the best album release for me this year, but apparently, Lana can only best herself, so the Paradise Edition easily shoves Born To Die down. If I hadn't already songficced the crap out of Born To Die, I'd do it again despite my raging hate for songfics. I can't words.

Anyway! Besides ordering Arafes, I have actually nothing to do today besides the cinema later with my trainer. We're going to watch... Breaking Dawn pt. 2. I know, I know. Seeing as I have only watched the first movie and read half of the first book, this shall probably be amusing. I have little to no idea what's happening in between, but internet assures me I'm better off without knowing. Anyway, she asked if I wanted to go with her, and it's been a long time since we've spent some quality time together, so it'll be good, even if I'm watching Twilight. /shrugs. I survived reading Fifty Shades, I can survive this.

I suppose I should now read my email, I haven't checked it since the weekend, so. I hope nothing truly groundbreaking was happening while I was assignment writing like a pro.

I also hope I can get some writing done now. My fingers are itching to write.

Please update me on your lives, lovely flist <3
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Final Fantasy - Zidane Tribal)
Being buried beneath a heap of blankets and racing to finish three assignments with deadline on Saturday, I will probably not be here much this coming week, but I shall try!

Happy one-day-early birthday to [livejournal.com profile] tonieboo0013, happy birthday, love, hope you'll be having a good one <3

Also, thank you to BFF for verbally kicking my ass into gear last night, it was much appreciated, my whining was ridiculous.

Anyway, I'm trying to get some writing done, I will try and cram it in in between assignments and actual human functions, but we all know how that tends to work out for me. Part 10 of Muses is just about done, I've started on part 11, I'm also working on my cliché fic, which has kind of taken over my life for a bit, which I normally wouldn't mind but for the fact that I'm trying to write a paper on dialects and linguistic evolution in Catullus' Carmina. So unless it writes itself, there will be little to no writing for me this week, I think :(

I'm wildly amused (and also slightly horrified) to discover that The Shameless Fic was nominated last year to some award or another. What. How. Why. HOW. WHY. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? Does this fandom genuinely not know when it's being mocked? This fic, of them all, was the one I was not keen on advertising anywhere, I wasn't even going to post it originally. So amused, what is this fic even? Various mean, mean people are telling me to write the sequel, what the hell, wasn't there enough mockery the first time around? I'm not completely heartless, you know, just really not in possession of a working brain to mouth filter.

Am I caught up on things now? Hopefully yes, but you lot are seriously difficult to keep up with, you're all busy and lovely (and productive!) so. Please just poke me if there's urgent stuff I need to know, you guys are really sweet at pm-ing me and reminding me of stuff, so just, I'm glad you do, so keep it up? Please?

Okay, my break from assignments has gone on long enough! Toodles! <3

Please do not rob yourselves of the experience of this Patrick Wolf interview plus live performances of Overture and Born To Die.

Two posts within the span of five days, good god, the world must be ending. Sadly for you all, I don't know the art of finding the middle ground, so either I spam you to death or hibernate for months at a time.

Getting most of my shit together so I can slack all of next week in Brussels (EEEEEEEEEEE!!), which means I've taken two extra shifts at work, most noticeably the death sentence of Saturday from 7.30am to 3pm. Anyway, that and I've been commanded (no, they actually called me up and begged me) to help out at the competition on Sunday. What is this madness, I hear you say, didn't you say you never wanted to take part in this competition business? Yes, I think I might I have said something along those lines in my foul, bitter moments, hoewever, I'll be judging for a few hours, and it's the girls. I really can't say no to the sweet girls, so you'll find me at the Judge Tower for a few hours on Sunday. I'm even missing the India Formula 1 Grand Prix for it.

So it's Wednesday and this time next week I'm in Brussels and am possibly very exhausted as per usual, but. BRUSSELS. GATI. So if the world spontaneously combusts next week it's clearly from our combined awesome. You have now officially been warned, so seek shelter.

My body is also doing its usual rebellion when I seriously don't have the time to be ill or otherwise indisposed, so naturally I'm pretty much out for the count, because my back has decided to act up. See my downing painkillers like a damn pro, I have work to do, damn it. I am also still decorating my room and my dad announced this morning that we're going to buy my new desk today and I might have teared up in despair since my goal for today is sitting incredibly still until I have to go to work. I really don't want to go anywhere, but I also want a new desk. I know, first world problems, I have all of them. MATERIALISTIC GOODS > HEALTH. Obviously. And I actually tried my best last night, went to bed at 10 to get some proper rest, except for the fact that I couldn't sleep, too nauseous to be comfortable and the painkillers weren't really anything to speak of, so I ended up texting Gati. Fell asleep around 2 and then woke up at 6. fml sometimes, really. /bitter. At least I only have four hours of work today. Little victories.

BUT TOMORROW. I actually have nothing planned, I think. I think. Which most likely means I've forgotten there's a shit ton of things I'm supposed to be doing, but oh well. Let's see come tomorrow.

/goes back to horizontal, vegetative state, reading way too much Avengers fanfic.
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Lana Del Rey - color)
In bulletpoints! Because I can! And I hope it'll be less tl;dr!

- Blasting Lana Del Rey and writing like mad. Cliché fic is nearing the 10,000 word mark with frightening speed. Absurd amounts of fun is had. Caveat emptor, just saying.

- Only a week and a half until I'm in Brussels with the lovely Gati ♥♥♥ Super secret intel: we're possibly not going to have any time to sleep.

- God, tumblr exhausts me with the pretentious hipsters nesting there. I have this love/hate with relationship with tumblr (I'm guessing a lot of people do, nowadays), because it's good for pictures and stuff, but I absolutely hate what it has done to fandom. Half the time I'm on tumblr, I am facepalming, headdesking or crying from despair, possibly a mix of the three. The other half, I'm struck with the need to babysit. Meanwhile, I'm gawking pictures. At least I admit I'm a hypocrite. Admitting to hypocrisy would suit the rest of fandoms.

- My bro consulted me on whether or not watching Torchwood was a good idea, and I'm pretty sure he can't handle the adorableness of Jack/Ianto. So. He went back to his Firefly altar. In other words, Netflix Denmark yay!

- Sundark and Riverlight slays with its perfection <3 Not just this album, but in general, this has so far been an incredible year for music, so much fantastic music coming out all the time. If you're not glued to youtube and/or rushing to buy the CD's, you're seriously depriving yourself of awesomeness.

- The video in which Lana is the most adorable thing ever. Wait for the end. So. Cute. New album can't be released too soon, just want it now, you'll see me at the front of the queue. Studio recording of Body Electric is going to be phenomenal.

- Almost done redecorating my room, still in need of a new desk, but the rest is okay. You all can follow my rapid meltdown at the self-induced apocalypse on twitter, oh dear.

I really miss talking to you all, really, I know that I'm absolute shit at commenting, but I'm reading what you post and. Sorry I suck? ;;__;; (In other words, no, I'm not saying that you're not interesting enough for me to actually want to comment - I'm saying I'm an equally shitty friend to everyone.) EVERYONE, I MISS YOU.
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Patrick Wolf - Wolf)
Hello hello, you lovely lot! My goodness, life is skjdhshfkjshk, approximately. Have had some really long days at uni this week (including ditching class to watch Brave /slaps wrist), work and a ton of other stuff that just piles up. I'm heading into a weekend busy with work work work and more work, I have to be at the stables at 8 both Saturday and Sunday to let out the horses (I'm weeping, I thought I was done with being at the stables at that time of the day, weeping, okay?) and I want to watch Formula 1 (from Japan!) and. The days are several hours short.

But it's not all stressful, fret not. I've been baking a really effing lot and I've been widening my horizon and tried out a ton of new recipes, and for the most part, it's been going really well. If you're dying to share recipes, I'm all ears, just saying.

Fandom wise, I haven't been writing spectacularly much. Part 9 of Muses is finished, however. Part 10 is almost finished. I'm working on some other projects, including one of the really overused clichés in fandom, probably only below the amnesia trope. /sweatdrop.

Just a quick question to all: which clichés are the most cliché in fandoms?

And I've pre-ordered Popcorn, flailed an absurd amount over Arafes even though I can't take the name seriously. I've been diving face first straight back into Tokio Hotel fandom, it's been ages since I've been listening so much to them and it's. Phenomenal. And I really really miss TH pre 2009, but oh well. I can roll around forever and happily in the music they made then, it's fine with me. If I occasionally wish Bill would still look like he did in 2007, well, we all have our unreasonable wishes, don't we? Still. So damn lovely. Will watch concerts with BFF and cry a bit. (Edit: Sobbing at Geisterfahrer and Spring Nicht)

I will also need to rewatch TIME concert because the lovely [livejournal.com profile] bulkyass was kind enough to flail all over twitter about it the other day, so now I just want to watch it again again again again.That is, when I've paused my stint back in TH, I will watch it. I'm also simultaneously gearing up for Patrick Wolf's new album, Sundark & Riverlight, and I absolutely refuse to download it, I know it's online somewhere, but I'm waiting for my physical copy to arrive, damn it, see I'm being a responsible fangirl for once?

You will all also have to worship Flawless Queen Adele for her James Bond theme Skyfall, (bought it, love it, will probably build an altar to it, just watch me) and oh my goodness, new Lana Del Rey album in November? I am so on board with that. If we're getting a proper version of Serial Killer I might actually faint from goodness. Yes, really.

Had a long talk with a long-distant friend last week, which was really pretty phenomenal, such a fantastic experience, really. We talked a lot about writing, which was something I realized later that I had needed to, because she doesn't know me, anymore, she doesn't know how I write, what I write for and why I write. And it was pretty amazing to just speak about my writing and she doesn't know what I put into the characters and why they feel the way they do. It was very humbling and freeing, somehow both at once. Very difficult to explain, but trust me when I say it was just that.

At the end of this, I'll just leave you with this and I will go write a bit.

Tchüss <3
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Monty Python - French Kniggit)
/dying. My icon for this post pretty accurately sums up my feelings about the past two days.

I feel like I should apologize to the few new friends I've made in the past few weeks (I actually typed "feeks", my brain apparently decided that "few" and "weeks" could be shortened, I'm not all there, alright) that the first posts you get from me are alarmingly detailed and TMI about me being ill. Apologies. (I typed "Apollogies". ...I'm clearly invested in my studies, okay.)

Anyway, I'm almost completely up to date with my comments and oh my god, that is a first this year, methinks. Figures it's because I'm ill and frantically trying to amuse myself and not keel over from the massive migraine that is threatening to erupt at any given moment. You guys, I am so unattractive right now, so much snot in my head, it's not pretty, you have no idea. And that's knowing that today is significantly better, snot-wise (oh lawd), than yesterday. On the downside, my throat is significantly worse than yesterday, cue me not really sleeping last night because it felt like I was trying to turn my throat into sandpaper all night. My stomach muscles (ha, no really, I do have some) are all aching from all the coughing I've been doing /whiiiiiine.
I remain confounded/amazed/in awe that when I half-way lose my voice to squeaky sounds and pitching all over the place, cracking halfway through words, my family understands me better than normal. I'll keep up my regime of earl grey tea and honey and hope I'll regain some semblance of voice soon because this is getting old pretty quickly. My dad made me drink tea with rum in yesterday, which was a complete and utter failure due to a) it was more like rum with tea, b) rum is foul, c) tea and rum = foulness, d) THE FOULNESS. And I totally typed FOWL and stared at it for a minute before I realized something was wrong. What the eff, brain, come on, please to be firing on all cylinders soon.

The fever is not going down yet either and I believe I'm getting slightly delusional. One of my naps involved a frighteningly livid dream of the President of Germany, a hippo, Monza (which, in my defense, is slightly relevant seeing as it's actually ongoing, so shut up, and besides, Lotus' hashtag for this weekend is #Monzarella, how is this team so awesome?) and Captain America. Trust me, you do not want to know. I don't want to know. /weeps.

So I bought The Avengers on DVD and forced my family to watch it with me (perk #1 of being ill: getting to control the TV) and it's still as awesome as watching it thrice in the cinemas suggests. And I've been making my brother watch my Top Gear DVDs with me, because that never ever gets old, so if you want a laugh, here's what you need to watch:

/squeaky pitchy laugh

And you really have no idea how many times I've read this post through to save you from the most horrifying/hilarious typos. I miss my brain not being encased by snot.

Accurate conversation #1:
Brother: So, did you write down what you need me to buy later? I have the list right here.
Rikke: No, I still *wheeze* ne-*crack*-ed to add the last *cough* ingre-*crack*-di-*squeak*-ents.
Brother: ...just write it down, alright.

Accurate conversation #2:
TV: I threw a wish in the well, don't ask me I'll never tell-
Rikke: I hate *cough* this *cough wheeze cough* song.
Brother: Me too.
Rikke: ...
Brother: ...
Rikke: /buys song on iTunes

Hello everyone, how's life?

I have the cold to end all colds at the moment and during the course of the day I have lost my voice entirely despite my frantic attempts at keeping it by drinking bucketloads of tea with honey and cinnamon. I also attempted to drink coffee, but that hurt my poor, sore throat :( I'm sniffling and coughing and generally being a really unattractive mess right now, with that constant feeling of having to sneeze but not actually getting to it, eyes watering and all that jazz. I'm also sort of stuck with writing these days, so in lieu of getting anything new writing done, I'm rewriting an older piece which shall be unnamed as of yet, but I'm getting equal parts hilarity and embarrassment from it, so that's fun.

Anyway, I'm doing some redecoration of my wall where I'm putting up quotes and lyrics, so would you throw some of your favorite quotes and lyrics at me?

Thank you and enjoy your week <3<3<3
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Default)
Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for all your replies to my last post, it was very informative and enlightening, and I will probably randomly PM some of you to start some discussions, would that be okay? I really hope so, you all had incredibly interesting things to say, and the reason I haven't replied to your comments is that I'm still digesting your answers, so. Thank you so much for taking my question seriously! /hugs everyone.

Now, the summer is about to be over, isn't it? It's really been quite hectic, hectic in both good and bad ways, but fortunately most good. I've been baking(!) a lot, I haven't got much writing done, I've been working a lot, and basically, life has been eating me. The weather has been encouraging my outdoors lifestyle, so I've been out on a lot of walks and riding and just. Being outside. I've also managed to acquire a tan(!!), isn't that several kinds of amazing? /laughs

I've been on a spontaneous one day road trip to Lübeck with some really good friends, and I'm going there again next weekend with my mother, so there's definitely that to be looking forward to.

Also, super amazing Halloween trip to Brussels have now been planned - six days with the lovely Gati. We're going to a Patrick Wolf concert (oh my goodness, excitement!!!) and we're going to do so much general fangirling you'll probably be able to hear us a few countries blocks over.

Will also be posting next part of Muses in a bit.

Take care of yourselves and enjoy the rest of the summer :)

Checking in to say I'M ALIVE, just working a lot and being generally busy. I hope you all are having a wonderful summer and that you all are well and happy :)

Someone got eaten by tigers in a Danish zoo this morning. How's that for summer excitement?

Also, yesterday, I had no less than nine separate posts on my flist telling me about Colfer's flawless photoshoot. I think I got the message.

Life and more life and also a bit of fandom (and Fifty Shades bashing!), methinks. All in bullet points, perhaps. Randomness ahoy. )
rikke_leonhart: Owl (Default)
I am not quite sure why I always let my comments and messages accumulate until it looks like this:

It's incredibly demotivating, is what it is, and now I will stare forlornly at it while I try to hypnotize it to lower in count so I can make myself start answering. Ugh.

In other words, it's summer 8D For me, it means a shit ton of work, hopefully a lot of writing and seeing friends and family. I've gotten my new tattoo done, I'm trying to get somewhat of a tan and I'm back to listening obssessively to Lana Del Rey.

Have an incredible summer, loves <3

Rikke: How may I help you?
Customer: I bought this from your co-worker yesterday. /drops box with camera cache, lense cleaner and SD card.
Rikke: Yes?
Customer: Yeah, so I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me where the lense cleaner and the SD card are. I've looked everywhere. /takes cache out, drops it on counter
Rikke: I'm sure you've searched it thoroughly, of course I believe you.
Customer: Yes, so now you need to give me a new one.
Rikke: I'm not allowed to do that, I'm sorry, you'll have to go out to Service, just around the building, my colleague will help you to the best of his capacity when you get there, and he will no doubt get you a new one.
Customer: This is the worst service I've ever gotten ANYWHERE and I'LL GO TO ANY STORE BUT THIS ROTTEN ONE IN THE FUTURE. /huffs and puffs
Rikke: I'm sorry to hear that, best of luck in the other stores. /calm
Customer: ...
Rikke: /packs cache back into box.
Customer: ... /huffs
Rikke: Have a pleasant evening. /smiles pleasantly
Customer: ... /retreats
V (Co-worker): You always get all them crazies.
Rikke: I know, right.
V and Rikke: /fist bump

Halfway (and maybe a bit more, it's running away a bit from me) through finishing part six of Muses, it's coming along slow since I'm cramming for exam as well, but it's seriously keeping me sane, oh my god, stupid effing exams, it makes my brain slow, and I'm running on a mixture of exhaustion, red bull and coffee, which, I realize, is probably not the healthiest cocktail I've ever downed, but whatever. God, what a run on sentence. Definitely tired.

I want, not necessarily in this particular order:
- time to sleep
- time to write
- more time to write
- time to watch Beautiful World DVD
- time to get a new tattoo
- new nails (or new nail polish, I'm not picky)
- someone to write me fic
- a magical lamp so I can get three wishes, just because.

Priorities, I has them.

Wall of text ahead, Ohno flailing, tl;dr entry, yes, read at own risk, also a several calls for help, because apparently I've misplaced my memory. )
