lightbulbSo I . . .
- went to Prague
- saw 8 apartments - had a crazy Saturday in which I got to know what feels like all metro stations and many tram/bus stations of Prague and probably did like 50 km travelling around it
- found a flat and basically persuaded the guy that I am the one he wants to rent that room to
- mostly did it because one more day like that would kill me and the flat was mostly acceptable
- signed the contract today and gave my landlord “legal” advice on how to properly get around the law with less of a chance to get caught by tax control
- got home, did my hair, nails, laundry . . .

cherryblossomNails are inappropriate for my job but. I got the nail polish from my sister for my birthday because she thinks my nail polish collection is boring. We are holding the job interviews for my successor this week at work, and I hate how it is going to go down bla bla basically this is me revolting. My nail polish is to tell the applicants to relax; it is not all as bonkers as it seems. Yeah the logic behind that.

sleepyI really, really need a good night sleep tonight. Oh there was supposed to be a mention of red library, historic, dirty and really hilarious novel in Czech somewhere in here.

camera1A few pictures from Prague is over at [livejournal.com profile] sanslunettes. I have not been able to listen to all those voice posts that emerged, the plan is one every evening over the course of this week . . .
higure: ((Kat-tun) Maru: they say I´m crazy)
eyesLast week was crazy. I am scared as hell of my new job, but at the same time it is really exciting and I can’t wait to start. I have no clue about producing and distributing juices and the VAT legislation and intellectual property (and claims about juice boxes designs) and marketing strategies and the structure of the company and how on Earth am I going to manage four of them at the same time . . . yeah overwhelmed much?

hourglassThe point is - July 1st is way too far away. I now have a really hard time coming back to my current work. So hard to motivate myself. I went all, “look it is middle of May already, you’ll be fine.” Then I counted and realized I still have 6 weeks and 4 days left. Ah gambare, gambare . . .

winkI think I wanted to talk about last week some more, but the twitter explosion just now killed my brain. So you are spared, lol.

movieBut I do have drama/movie updates.

moviecameraI started watching Moteki and am forever amused.

heart1I also watched Hanamizuki (probably am late to that Toma train) and Finding Mr. Destiny.

thumbsupI guess I liked both. Plus somewhere halfway through Hanamizuki I realized what an interesting mirror Finding Mr. Destiny is to Hanamizuki, in a way. Despite being much more on the romantic comedy side and all. About that, I actually really recommend Finding Mr. Destiny as a chick flick. There is basically no shouting (so typical for Koreans) and I loved the camera of it? Or the way the flashbacks were done I guess? I keep wondering if it would be possible to write like that. Probably not. Yeah I clearly needed to turn off after a crazy week because I haven’t watched that many movies and drama in ages. So I’m now terribly behind on fandom front (All I know is that I am looping Namie Amuro's Checkmate! for whatever reasons, really like Silence and Yuuki no hana makes me depressed). Or more so than usual?

lightbulbAnyway I’ve been thinking. I have a couple of relatively new people on my friends list plus I am moving out of m beloved Brno (and this not so beloved but still liveable flat) in like a month. So I thought I would try an interactive picture meme that I’ve seen quite some time ago. Only I do not remember how exactly it went. So my improvised version:

!!Tell me in comments what from my life you want to see and I will take a picture of it for you and post it to my journal. Almost anything goes, from the inside of my purse to my kitchen appliances, to my surrounding, city parts, my hideout, I can sneak a pic of my desk in the morning if you haven’t seen it yet. I can’t think of many things I would refuse to take a picture of (and you’d probably not be interested in what is underneath my skirt anyway, so . . . )

!?So how curious are you? If you ask for a picture, you can also ask me a question, something you wanted to know and hadn’t find an opportunity to ask or something you feel like you might be missing out on when I post, whatever ;D

busAnd I’m going home this weekend, so I can show you pieces of my “home home” in Trnava not only of my Brno living space if you wish for it.

So who wants to play?
higure: ((Arashi) Sho convict)
Today I'm a living, walking zombie . . . that hates scholars. I mean who on Earth thinks it's a good idea to hold a conference on Friday? Especially one that starts at 9:30 am and finishes at 5:30 pm. Clearly these people don't know that the weekend starts on Friday late afternoon. I had to get up at 5 am, get to work where a car picked us up. The conference kept lagging behind the schedule, so we finished only after 6 pm. The last panel took place in front of a half empty audience because everyone who could have left, did. I can't say I blame them.

The conference itself . . . Let's just say that out of 8 hours, about 90 minutes had something to do with application of EU law by the Czech courts which was, mind you, the official topic of the conference. There is more I could say but lol I don't think it would be very positive or interesting so . . . Our driver probably broke like every speed limit on the way back to Brno, and we didn't eat dinner anywhere so thankfully I was home at like 9 pm. Still that is 16 hours after I woke up, about 15, 5 after I left home . . .

I cooked food because I was starving, broke every rule of healthy eating and beta read last ficolate fic. I woke up today to my landlord drilling something at around 8 am, and I was up a few times before that during the night (the heating starting up around 4:30 am never fails to wake me up), but I managed to go back to sleep, still . . . *zombies some more* Not even walking the distance of tree bus stops to my "changing point" instead of taking the said bus on my way to shop for food helped.

Anyway the conference was organized by the ministry of international affairs, and they sure have some representative premises at their disposal. The place was AWESOME. I unfortunately couldn´t well take out my camera and documented, but I snuck two bad pictures out of the bathroom windows (see here). Check out this virtual tour of the outside if you want to see; it was built to outdo (I think successfully) the Prague castle in its time, and it is called Černínský palace. It´s dead centre of Prague too; I wish I could have just walked down the castle stairs from there . . . This room is where the conference took place, though there are more modern microphones on tables now and the TV too is replaced by something better. I was like whoa *__* Nah it was pretty.

Okay now I have that off my chest, I have all ficolate fics (that I will get) in my mail box. I only have one drop-out and as faith would have it, I didn’t really need a pinch-hit for that one fic, so overall quite a success. I need to do something with like every fic but four, people not capable of following simple instructions, but oh well, I am almost done. Phew. I think it’s been even more intense than last year. Maybe I could now get back to my own fic responsibilities. If anyone is curious drop by [livejournal.com profile] ryoda_love on February 14th! And thanks to everyone who has helped me deal. You guys were a great help!

Lastly, I set thisarrowup up. I’ve seen it around, now I only have to remember who everyone posted it so I can go show some love. If you leave me some, well . . . you know how it is, love makes people happy (most of the time)
higure: ((stock) world)
Sooo . . . it feels like Christmas has been ages ago. But it was okay and, as always, exhausting in that masochistic family gatherings way. I got red kitchen appliances (for the kitchen of my new flat that I don’t have yet, nor have I really found anything suitable yet. Lol, but I do have a kettle and a toaster for it now ;D). I´ve worked Tuesday through Friday, and I must say if nothing else, commuting to work was wonderful. I had a hard time choosing on which of practically all free seats of a bus to sit on.

In short , my life could be characterized as very busy and very cold right now. I will spare you the reasons (it´s all my fault) for the first or bitter but sometime funny stories of the second. But I will say that the entire town of Brno has decided to shove it in my face that no one works on new Year’s Eve but me. I mean, the four lane road near my house that is usually always stuck was completely empty this morning (like seriously NO CARS!) and public transport runs on Sunday schedule. And the store into which I was planning on going after work was long closed. There you have it, Alex, everyone else have saved up vacation days for this but you.

Anyway . . . New Year’s resolutions. I has no segue today. To be more optimistic and zen about things next year. I am feeling tired and down way too often lately and really I can do better than that.

In the spirit of doing better, I am so freaking happy about how the [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith sign ups are going! All things considered, I should call the participants a crowd. LOL. That said, If you want to sign up but haven’t done so just yet because you like to toy with my emotions you were busy or were stalling, now is the time to do it since the sign-up close soooooooooooon! Do it!

And when one door closes, another opens (what was I spouting about lack of segues?!) I am running another round of RyoDa Valentine’s Ficcolate exchange over at [livejournal.com profile] ryoda_love! It seems to be a success to advertise this as an occasion to bargain for a bad fic (shoot me, but I do know my fandom), so how about that? The timeline is damn fast, and the word count minimum is easy breezy 500 words, and I can already see the panic attack of the week of February 14th.

Enough of spouting. I am falling off my feet, which is why I am off to my friends’ place. Thank god we are laid back (boring) people, so we’ll just chill, talk, maybe play games and go to sleep before the dawn (an easy task these days).

All that is left for me to say is that I wish you a good rest of the old year and happy New Year! As my mother says, you should not eat “birds” on New Year because your luck will fly away, and I wish you that you step into the New Year well and in good mood so as to set the tone of a great rest of 2011!

See you next year! melody

This will bug me forever. Why randomly ask and then have no reaction to the answer?

[livejournal.com profile] jrockurisumasu started posting. I´m, I mean Naughty reindeer is about to code the day two

My oven won´t start up for the reasons unknown to me, and I might have to cancel my baking (and most importantly chilling) Sunday because of it because I do not want to talk to my Landlord and I doubt he would just rush over and fix it anyway. And I can´t have the thing I bought for tonight´s dinner.

My mother´s plans for the days until Christmas made me think I actually don´t want to go home for Christmas

I might have found a way to solve the incredible cold that I experience every day in my office

Oh yeah, I have internet again, it is incredibly crappy and keeps disappearing, but most of the time I am online

Catching up on my flist was overwhelming (the 10 days meme contained sooo much info on you guys)

I saw my thread on the love meme. Thank you ♥

Budapest was . . . idk something undefined

I almost fell asleep on the bus from work today and that is scary

I am FINALLY doing laundry

I am not in a good place, I guess

So I am off to wallow in some more idk what and I´ll talk to you all when I get over myself again
higure: ((Kat-tun) all)
SO . . . still no Internet.

I am currently in Prague where I went due to a work meeting and figured since I am here I could visit a friend and stay overnight and chat and catch up. Which is why I am online checking train rides to . . . Budapest. Where I am going all by myself (or so it was finally decided) this Sunday. Staying until Tuesday. On Wednesday we are hosting judges from some pretty interesting countries at the court. Thursday is crazy according to the plans . . . I mean. Up till Christmas there are only 4 days left I will be working (as in sitting on my chair in the court building as opposed to being in Hungary or whatever) And I GOT MY FIRST PAY-CHECK TODAY! OMG finally after 6 weeks of workings, it was getting pretty bad.

What else. Oh I know, the main reason I am online.

KAT-TUN fic exchange

rules and intro
Sign-ups start on December 18

We are gearing for the next year. KAT-TUN DVD should come out soon, Jin has tons of activities, iggy thing should be up sometimes, right? So I think it is a perfect time to start thinking how you want your KAT-TUN. Any soul that sign ups can have a piece of mine ;D.

I am off to cook and be sociable. Some of these days I will have time to catch up on what you are up to. Some day . . . Until then ♥
higure: ((Kat-tun) Maru: they say I´m crazy)
This made me smile today. Ryo and Massu being totally cute. And Massu is hot. Just saying.

ryo massu

And Ryo never stop being dork. How is this sexy again? LOL.

In other fandom news, I have read an awesome Arsenal/Ace fic yesterday (*__* I mean that was the whole point of 8uppers, right?) and the got a lesson on how to write kissing scenes, courtesy of Ryo/Ohkura. I can´t wait to see the new KAT-TUN PV, omg why is there still so much time left and Eighto concert pictures are so hilarious even by their very high standards!

I also miss “my fandom.” I lived a lot on short subbed clips of whichever of the groups I follow, but lately no one (to my knowledge) subs KAT-TUN related stuff at all, NEWS are scarce and none of the Arashi subbing groups I follow sub their variety really (and I gave up trying to get into the million new ones). This was how I enjoyed my fandom the most; I hardly ever have time to catch up on scans and translations and this way my gateway. I miss it so much ;__;

One more fandom related thing, me and Rin are conducting an experiment of some sort (or just looking for a reason to write together again), so there is a poll on my writing community. If you wanted to fill it out and for whatever reason did not do so just yet. Here is your chance ->->-> paperclip <-<-<-! Yes we call stuff we write epic.

In real life news, I moved, gained a flatmate and this Monday I started working. The normal at least 8 hours (plus 30 min. lunch break) a day, grown up, regular job. more on job and the thing called RL )

Before I wish you good rest of the weekend, I have one more thing. I realize this journal, while it is still fandom based, is more and more my personal, real life related place. I have no clue how many of you are interested in that, and I know my fandom related posts are sucky and scarce lately. I’m always behind, I leave most of my flailing unsaid because I get to catch up on singles, videos and funny stuff happening way too late when all of you have moved on. I might sound annoying and boring for all I know.

So this is me telling you that if you just skip over my post whenever they appear on your f-list, or if they are more annoying or vexing even than anything, you have every right to defriend me.

I am sure you don’t have to be told, but some people still kind of try to be considerate or need that little push. So this is me giving you a reason.
Defriending amnesty they call it?

Here it is. No hurt feelings, no bitterness. I prefer honesty.

For those who are staying . . . I hope I can still be a good friend some way or another. If you want to know what I am up to everyday, go check out my photo journal over at [livejournal.com profile] sanslunettes. ♥
