... aka this isn't all that well thought out, but I don't care because MaruDa is turning 30, and I want to love them a little more.

Technically this is also a little late, and I really won't mind if any and all activity carries past October 4th.

To celebrate the wonderful thing that is the bond of one Nakamaru Yuichi and Ueda Tatsuya, who have been giving us joy and shipping material for years now, I challenge you!

Comment to this post and spam pictures, give me your feelings, write fics, post fic ideas and prompts, answer those prompts, share your doujinshi, look for couple clothes, share conspiratorial theories, flail and cry on my shoulder because Ueda and Nakamaru will both be 30 in a month and they still look younger than you, give me reasons why I (I mean everyone) should ship them (more), invite your friends, have a party!

Anything goes, this post stays public, let's have fun! Let's have an awesome MaruDa month. (The idea was not mine, but I sure hope Levy and Seki forgive me for stealing it).

I promise to make a master post of things in comments so people do not have to look for it.

Need a little incentive?

Maruda and dress shirts, and ties, and more ties (and you know other polka dot men apparel), and in leather jackets, and Ueda making Nakamaru's PV that much better, and Nakamaru telling you who really uses the whip in this relationship. And have MaruDa reminding you just how long they have been the perfection they are. Even if their radio made of awesome (and the related regular couple shoots) is no longer.

Have MaruDa
serenading you because of course Nakamaru takes Ueda with him to his SCP performance.

Enjoy them pimping each other's acting work in an interview or watch them discuss hairstyles like it's serious business.

And top it off with some lovely meta that makes you melt.

Now it's your turn, I will encourage all and every notion of affection. Spread the word, have some fun.



Shiny things to be found in comments:
Art:
Suits and ties (with a little written bonus)
another collection of fanart, omg so much awesome

Threads where you can request something to be written do you by a specific author:

Ri's "find-me-something-i-want-to-write" request thread
!You can always leave random prompts and story ideas, things you have always wanted to see written about them in general comments and maybe some good fairy will pick it up. This is not limited to requesting from people who specifically offered to write. And of course you can pick any of the prompts and write something for it too ....

I'm not sure if one can call it hiatus if it never gets better. But I'm sorry if I'm not the best of friends lately. Life's been kind of mean to me, stealing even my weekends and dragging me around Czech republic and Slovakia too much and if not that, then I am touring furniture and kitchen studios and such.

THIS is the only thing that has made me stop so I am embeding it.



I WILL REPLY TO ALL THE THINGS IN . . . two weeks. Maybe, hopefully. Come to think of it, I might not have that weekend free either >.>

Also, do you know of a good Czech lawyer who will teach me for free? I am kind of desperate for a sempai..

NOW posting!!!


cake Happy birthday KAT-TUN!

heart1Please help me spread the news, go read some good fic and comment because fandom tends to fail lately and authors need all the love they can get.

!?I'm not sure if there's someone out there who doesn't know what I've written and who would be interested in guessing . . . but I think I'm not TOO transparent this year. LOL I do hope it's less obvious than last year's "from the header".

penAnyway there's 3 more days of posting to go through, but once it's done . . . if you guess the fic I wrote, I'll write you something short (and sweet? or dirty?).

NGIn other news, IDEK how I will ever manage to pull my head above all the work I have lately. It's not good. Like really not good because of many things at work that are cumulating, and not all of them are just work load related. But I will try to hang on. I didn't want to whine. Sorry ;__;
higure: ((KAT-TUN) all)
car1So I've driven over 1000 miles since last Thursday. And I did not even go near the car during the weekend. This whole feat was achived by me going from Czech Republic to Poland then to Slovakia then to Czech Republic again. Fun stuff.

shockuLife's crazy, work has never been this busy (this statement is making me feel like there might be a time when one person will not be enough, especially since I'm comparing the level of busy to December/January craze. But one more person is not an option.)

moneybagAfter two weeks of searching for the reservation fee we sent to the real estate agency, the money was finally found today. I seriously thought I would end up physically crying over this because. Money. Lost. Lots of money. Penalties for late payment coming into play. New condo uncertain.

arrowroundSo in between all that, every time I felt like posting it was just whine, whine, technical stuff no one gets/is interested in, me being tired, not having time . . . so I just didn't. One day I will have free time again. And on that day I will go see Big Bang concert (ANNOUNCE THE EUROPEAN DATES ALREADY? DAMN IT!). Yeah . . .

lightbulbThe rest of this week will continue to be crazy everywhere. On top of all that, FTF POSTING STARTS ON THURSDAY!!! I am excite.

wrenchSo I've made icons (instead of working this Sunday. I feel guilty but I needed a break).

heart1 BUT I'm no pro, so I asked for help, and Vix made me icons too. I'm sharing both sets bellow the cut. First table contains icons by [livejournal.com profile] myxstorie, the second table are my efforts. Difference is that Vix is much bigger pro, the pictures used are mainly the same, we just possibly use different cropping and well she's just better.

winkSo there's plenty of icons, and obviously Ueda and the random Yamapi at least are not for the exchange. It may or may not give you some idea about pairings this year, though not all of them ;D

stupid Johnny made this difficult by not giving us a calender this year ;__; )
higure: ((Dorama) Akira shock!)
eyesSO . . . I've gone a bit away so to speak after I had a bit of a fight with real life, to put it metaphorically, last Friday. Or hormones, I'm still not sure. I stayed a bit away from about everything.

shockuJust as I was slowly coming back, NEWS happened. Well that's that. I always thought fandom was there to amuse me. Or not fandom, the boys are here to amuse me in one way or another. So I don't know why JE goes out of their way to screw over just about everything I like about it lately. You are not doing a good job at keeping me around, orz.

thumbsupAnyway, I am still a bit distanced, I would say, but I was pretty productive yesterday, and even if the result will always stay dubious, I am proud of myself just because I finished it.

movieAs a reward I went on a search for a certain .gif. I didn't find it, so I made it. I don't know how to make .gifs mind you. I had to install one more program and read like three tutorials, so it probably sucks but it makes me happy.



heartyeyesYeah, my favorite Zenkai Girl moment. And one of my favorite J drama moments ever too. Because TOUCHES *_____* I was going to write this whole thing on touches and why I like this one and why I like touches in fic too and stuff, but somehow, the need to talk about it is gone. So that's that.

NGI seriously hope I didn't spoiler anyone by now.

camera1Oh also, I had to look for some MatsuJun pics today and when did the guy get this pretty? I found some of his phases very (there I said it) charming but this . . . Also have Ueda Tatsuya picture-a-month mosaic from the year 2000 up till now-days (click the picture to make it bigger ;D ).

houseI'm home and am driving to Prague only on Tuesday evening so I won't be around even as much as I normally am. I just felt like letting you know ;D
higure: ((Kat-tun) Ueda red)
watchI think this all is enough for a quick (mostly) fandom post



heartyeyesSo let's talk about how Ueda's hair finally matches his hunched, very macho and MALE posture. He tends to stand exactly like that, but call me an idiot, it looks sooooooooooo good like this. With every new (and more in color) picture, I like bouzu Pommu more and more. Not to mention, I really like it when an idol goes and does something that challenges his image and public perception of him up to that point. And yeah I can't stop looking. (See also: Nakamaru with rolled up sleeves and from that angle looks amazing).

melody2The PV for Kaze Wa Fuiteiru is out, and it is official, it's the second AKB48 song I really like (I don't really know any old stuff, but I heard everything after Beginner and some). Plus I like the darker setting of the PV. This is also probably the first time Itano Tomomi didn't bother me (I really do not like her face, sorry to anyone who does).

presentOh yeah, today I got my [livejournal.com profile] rocky_rudolph mod hat back on. My sister is still Internet-less (though she sends me MMS about toilets, bikes, sea horses and killing unicorns), so whenever she gets the sorted out assignments to me, I will have to send 46 emails. LOL my weekend is doomed. What with the evening get together turning more into like all day get together on Saturday and two fics to write before October 13 and other stuff.

moneybagIn real life news, I just paid my rent. It is sad how I always feel SO broke afterward. For half of the month, I am all, you are doing well, saving up, being all responsible, it is looking good. And then BAM! LE SIGH! I just needed to get that off my chest.

arrowupTomorrow is the last day of my 3-months probation period at work. My boss isn't even in the office due to some injury to lay me off from one day to another on last minute, so I am pretty sure I am staying in Prague for at least another 3 months until the end of my short term contract. Then I either become jobless right after Christmas, or I am in for a permanent one *____* Will gambarimasu for that magical formula of "for an indefinite period" to be added in.

LOL nothing else is relevant


Or well maybe.

camera1Meet element of fire. She was the best of them. Had a really great "insane" stare down and fascinated me a bit. Or a lot.

Also today, exactly a year ago, September 17th, I graduated from university. LOL 1 year anniversary of adult life, what? Clearly, right afterwards I was pretty out of it and couldn't type to safe my life. And later, I was full of impressions. So much has happened since (and changed). At least clearly, Ueda still can get the raise out of me. I don't remember capslocking like this in ever.

There's a friending meme going on, so hi new friends. I am sorry for jumping straight into a crazy. This might be the most of capslock you'll see from me . . . in next year or so <3!!cake
higure: ((Arashi) Jun classy)
I’ve been piling up fandom stuff I wanted to flail or just talk about, and now it is all old news and there might be too much.

lovely I really like Kinki Kid’s Time. I am not sure why because it sounds a bit "electro" to me, but I guess it has something with all the instrumental in the background.

moviecamera KAT-TUN's 156th CM song is making me cringe because there’s tons of auto-tune, but I love the running in the CM itself. Like any other fangirl I supposed. There have been .gifs of Nakamaru and Ueda that made me go *___*, but now they are gone ;__; If you have them, please please link me?

shirtWhite shirt is what makes man look great. AnAn knows this. That I like this picture of Ryo is not that surprising. That I like Kame in this one is more of a shock. Turtle-chan also scared me to death recently because I was subjected to a .gif of him rolling up his sleeves (wearing trousers and tucked in WHITE shirt) and I found him HOT. I should probably be thankful for the loss of that .gif.

pencilI love this interview. Ueda is on a fan service strike clearly. The mentions of Nakamaru and Kanjani8 are great. Not to mention him saying K8 was fun made me think he had loads of fun ogling Ryo’s ass during Marching J. I have linked that picture before, but I can do it again ;D.

penI was going to pimp the possibility of mini-reel that is now a reality. Claim post is this way. I fail, lol.

cakeOh and then there is loads of Junba. There is this amazing bar shoot and then there are VS Arashi "kissing" caps and WHOA Jun looks great, Aiba is as gorgeous as ever and they are the biggest teases ever.

watchI had more, but the second post it got lost. But I went on tumblr again, so this is the newest addition to my Subaru/Ryo obsession, here goes KAT-TUN garden party I want to join for the pretty and there is Nakamaru working his lips?

shocku I am sorry, I am not crediting, but I mostly have no idea who. People link pictures, I try to track them down when I can save them, it's all a huge mess >.>

japaneseteaI am out. I leave you with an office rule number one:
To make your instant coffee, you deserve a fresh dose of water that has not boiled three times already in the old water kettle.

eyesIn real life, I had pictures to share but then I realized that would require somehow addressing this weekend and I just want to forget it. So I’ll just say there was cake.


this one I just found so credit to onigishi@tumblr
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: ((Kat-tun) Maru: they say I´m crazy)
LOL so talking about the castle from two weeks ago is so last week, literally that is seems i never will. Oh well I’ll tell you about naked medieval bottoms and clever Czechs some other time.

Anyway I am posting to say some things. First, I saw a picture of onigiri this week, felt like eating some and randomly typed into my sister’s IM box “Come make me onigiri,” and she seriously did. From another city, this weekend. heart1heart1heart1She came bearing miso and wakame and we got tofu and found umeboshi paste and suddenly there was also a bit of sushi and what ended up being food orgy. I finished the miso soup today, and I’m having onogiri for lunch tomorrow :DDD

We ended up just bumping around and skyping with Rin and it was fun <3 They might have plotted out my FQF for me too, those two. ROFL.

In fandom news, [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith is done posting! Reading people’s reactions to fics, it seems that it’s been a great year. I am sending you to read what you haven’t. I myself am stuck on day three I think ;__; but I will get there, damn it!

Anyway, thank you to anyone who had to deal with my modly crankiness and insecurity. Guys, I had 3 fics in on March 15th (which was the second deadline already), so how the hell it happened that we did not need a pinch hit is beyond me, but I call that DAISEEEEKOOOO (yes that is stupid fangirl Japanese , sue me).

Because we barely just finished one exchange and tons of others are running, it is time for


Devil or Angel.

The JE collaboration fic challenge.


GO SIGN UP ... on April 1st when the sign ups open. Really, there is no pairing, rating, group or universe limitation, it’s just you, your partner and vast possibilities AND the twist that is incorporating a color into the fic. We dropped the themes, but we wanted to give you at least something extra to make it interesting. Details are in the intro post, so grab someone and write something you would never write alone.

I kind of wanted this photo to end this post, so. My sister painted her nails while she was here, with the same nail polish as me. We were originally going to document that fact, but because I am cheesy and she was spamming me Kpop, this is how it ended up. At least you can see our thumbs?



Guess which hand is mine;D You can also try and guess which fic I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith. Rin would probably say it is obvious just from the header itself >.>

And now I am really going to go be productive.
higure: ((Arashi) Do it! Do it!)
So, my [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith fic is AMAZING! It's Maruda, an established one at that. Has some aweosme stuff, some really hilarious stuff, some breath taking stuff and some really really hot stuff. I like together fics but I love established equally as much, damn it, because that dynamic different and leaves me feeling really comfortable. So this was a very nice bonus. LOL this might be as long as my comment on it, and I fully intent to redeem that this weekend, but I needed to get it out again. I flailed just thinking about the fic today in the bus on my way to work. I was going to say I must have gotten really lucky with who wrote for me this year then I remembered I was there when matching people up. LOL. Good job me. (okay this might have sounded weird.)

I almost forgot to link the fic, so it is here

Anyway I've read a couple of fics posted so far just now and they are all amazing, so I am really happy. BUT it got me thinking. I want your opinion. Do you think 4 fics a day, 5 days of posting is a good solution? As in do you think maybe the posting should go slower?

I'm asking because this being a one group exchange, maybe I should reconsider the system for the future. I know people all like different stuff, so they may pick and chose, but I usually make exceptions for exchanges and venture even into pairings I would not read otherwise. Also people in this exchange have been amazing in mostly including the rest of the group so that is A LOT of KAT-TUN in quite intense doses. Not to mention there is several fics going well over 10k.

I know people get anxious about their fic, want the fics for them and things may feel like dragging if posting goes for too long, but maybe idek 6 or 7 days for 20 fics would be better. 3 fics a day? Would it make a difference? Would you read more, feel less overwhelmed if that happened. Tell me in comments. I would really appreciate it.

For the lazy people I have a poll.

[Poll #1722110]
higure: ((Kat-tun) all)
I . . . wanted to post properly, but I am so scattered that I don't think I can.

I mean, work continues to kick my ass, and I have no clue why I thought this week would be better, the article grew into humongous size which is why it is not ready, I am probably battling a pretty heavy case of spring tiredness, but I will prevail and my winter/spring/what kind of season is this shoes broke down. It´s time for spring to come, now really.

BUT BUT BUT!

[livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith starts posting tomorrow!


And since there were still no icons from the new KAT-TUN calender available yesterday when I wanted to update the [livejournal.com profile] hyphen_chan's fond, I ended up making some. Yesterday, they looked ugly to me, today it is a little better. LOL

I've decided to post them so you people can gear up and be ready to flail on awesome fics we're going to post ;D. Right.

Here be my feeble efforts )

All but the last two were made with the Fic the faith needs in my mind. Basically this is me telling you that if you look at [livejournal.com profile] hyphen_chan's icons right now, you'll have an idea about what is waiting for you. Let it be said I kept all Jin related icons from last year, because well there wasn't much to work with since last March ;__;.

Now who is exited?
higure: (Default)
I am back from Italy, which was the typical ski trip. The weather was funky, and there wasn’t almost any snow off the slopes, the hotel had no internet connection and dinners had three courses plus desert. They were also really late, and I kept on being really hungry then unreasonably full after that food assault. They had awesome tiramisu though.

I am glad to be back though. My pipe bones, is it how they are called? Anyway those bones in the front of your legs below knees are hurting like crazy from ski boots, and Italian beds are always too soft.

Pictures are here, if you want to see, though there are faces, so they are friends’ locked. My favorite line of the whole week was the one my dad shouted after my brother while they went down the ski slope on the first day: “Avoid the snow!” I swear I laughed so hard that was the closest I came to falling the whole week.

Right in the meantime, fandom exploded and I’m sorry to say I haven’t seen The Lotus PV yet (anyone got a link?). But I hear Arashi finally did a step for the better, so yay! Also, let me express my sheer amusement over the fact that Ryo’s first lead role is him being a 30 year old daddy of two kids that gets his life altered by a dog (while his buddies Jin and Pi get sexed up in different parts of the world respectively).

Let me finish by saying that I have seen Ueda’s, Nakamaru’s and group shop pictures for Ultimate Wheels and I pretty much rolled in glee. They are amazing. Ueda’s are easy to find at sleepyueda. I have the rest from [livejournal.com profile] js_shop, which is awesome for me because I can’t keep up with ever changing sources and scanners and this girl keeps lots of stuff in one place. I seriously had problems choosing, but I love all of those where they play cards, so let me flail over one of those

*____________________*

Also since when is Nakamaru so squishable? I mean I always had this pointy association with his appearances (and for once this is not about his nose), but he is amazingly squishy in this photo shoot. Also Koki should keep his hair like this forever.(credit Naver and kamegoing223, each word is a separate link ;D)

Right I am off to sleep. I will continue to catch up with what I missed, but if you feel like I need to know something, please point it out, I’m seriously lost at times.

P.S.: While my pictures were uploading, I read this NEWS interview. There is probably a little mess up in Ryo's translation, which makes his part even more hilarious. Now I want a fic where he makes out with his friends instead of making up with them after they fight. Anyone up to writing it? ;D
higure: ((Kat-tun) Ueda annoyed)
I should say that Valentine’s Day isn’t a holiday typical for my region. AT ALL. It got big here mostly because businesses grabbed it and made it an opportunity to sell cute items, more presents, more flowers, more fancy meals at restaurants. As it is I don’t particularly like the holiday because it puts people who are alone on display. I don’t hate it, but when I got a promotional MMS from my operator with a wish of happy Valentine, telling me how I can send this and other cute MMS to people, I got a little grumpy. This is also partially because as an imported holiday, it really is one for the lovers and, one could say, lovers only. Friends don’t wish each other happy, nice, pleasurable Valentine’s Day, nor do they get particularly affectionate or say how much they love each other on this day. I would be considered a fool f I brought it up at work for instance. So it just gives teenagers a headache, as it was proven by the two poor girls whining about being alone today on my bus this morning.

Why am I saying this. I don’t really know the procedure here. I don’t know how to say it today especially that I like you. I mean I like you, love you even, on most of the days of the year. And I sure hope I can let you know that I do through the entire year, not really needing that special day. I hope I do tell you more often than once a year.

That said, lots of you celebrate this day, and I myself have succumbed a little (a lot) by running a Valentine´s exchange for the second year in a row. heart1So I am wishing you a day filled with extra special love and its displays. heart1

I also want to thank those five awesome people that left me a message over at Valentinr. You made my morning (IHU for being anonymous, just kidding okay, I just am racking my brain who you are, that’s all <3)

And since I mentioned the exchange, here be the recs from it. Because OMG I can has RyoDa recs on this day of the year.
1) The Prince and The Prince, fairytale take with some hilarious cross-dressing that you would probably not expect reading the title. Just believe me on this one okay?
2) The Stray , read the warning, there are some description of wounds, but it has a really really pretty imaginary and the best deception of a happy drunk EVER! An interesting read
3) For a SPIN , ehm there is Ryo and Ueda holding hands and spinning like little kids on an empty bar dance floor. Among other things. Future fic, Jin has completely new troops, and Ueda is still somehow a mystery, also I love this a lot
4) The Ambiguity Of Indifference, mpreg, the most rational I have ever seen, funny, brutally honest and gentle all in one *_____*
5) 21st century escapism, I’m not going to say I want to sit in that car because I would break the charm, but again this fic has amazing description and makes you feel how relaxed and good Ryo feels.
!!And lastly the fic for me that you should all go read because it is full of touches, something I really really love and I can like almost feel why Ryo asks form them, and anon san probably has no idea how many things she hit, also someone sent this to me and I might have a guess but I don´t know yet and seriously I am so loved!
6) All There Is To Tell, toucheeeeeeeeeeeeees *_______________*

I’ still not sure I can take so much awesome. Seriously . . . I am kind of all shaky here. Go give those authors some love!

ILU ♥

Oh, I was said that I am totally easy to read, and idk who wants to go through all that Ryoda to find out, and maybe I made it easy by reccing, but the first person that guesses right WHO I wrote for can have a drabble. Probably not any time soon, but I will write it. PM me or idek let me know somehow if you decide to play ;D
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

Our carps. I believe they are all dead by now. In memoriam? It is a tradition to eat carp on Christmas Eve, for diner around here.

Our Christmas tree. Before . . . and after, times two. We went back to red after several years of copper hues. I must admit it does look tiny better on the yellow wall background of our living room. I do hate that wall.

The mistletoe that was in front of our house door when I came home on Monday. It is now used elsewhere which is a sham.e I liked it there. I had a good laugh when I found out my dad shot it off a tree. SHOT IT! I am also surprised it felt down all the way to the ground without getting entangled in the branches and thus getting stuck.

My hair has finally been cut. The same style as last time. My mother and apparently my brother too don´t like it. I am glad it is short again.

I need to watch Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku. I mean I. love. these. post. cards!

These scans, all of them, are amazing. All of KAT-TUN are so pretty in the snowy shoot, and I like the serious second one too.

I am (again) linking [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith.

And The New Year´s Eve Fic-a-thon! It has awesome awesome banner, and I am going to go and try doing it sometimes after I get up from bed on the January 1st. YAY! Lazying around with fic! You should do it too!

And right now I am going to sit on my butt and finally finish Trains and Trails because this is getting ridiculous!

Oh yeah, my sister is right, [livejournal.com profile] jrockurisumasu is a pretty community.

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.

FIC THE FAITH!
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: (Ryo wants his desert)
I have somehow survived the week of doom. And Saturday would have been a really lovely day, had I not have to interact with my mother via emails. But I woke up today, and one of the first things I saw was THE lollipop, and I decided I will try to selectively forget the end of my yesterday.

I have my advent wreath! I want one more thing which is what is here called a Christmas rose, for both my flat and my work actually, but I’ll see if I actually manage to shed the money for that. ;__; OMG money. Right.

I managed to talk to my ♥ co-mod today, and it’s not like I had any doubt, but we are now gearing up for another round of [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith! YAY! Sign-ups will start somewhere mid December and whoever participates will get their assignment only sometimes in January, so I think that is enough of time to kind of take a breather from exchanges . . .

Now, I was NOT going to do a wish-list for many reasons one of them being the fact I honestly don’t think I’ll get around to fulfilling much (or more like any) from others this December. You may call me a little selfish, but it might also have something to do with all the exchanges this year and that I plan to write more or less for myself only if I write in December. Which means, fluff, probably RyoDa, not much plot, easy, things none of you ladies craving plots are into. If I write . . . because I should be writing about Protocol 14 of ECHR and let me tell you that will take some time.

But then I keep thinking I want lots of things. I mean the material ones. Which none of you can fulfil obviously. Right now, I can only think of about half of the stuff I came up in the past two weeks. It has a lot to do with the fact I moved and lack things I had at home. Even if my family asked, I would probably go, “I don’t know what I want . . . anything is fine.” So this first wish list is in reality a list of things I’ll be saving up for from now on. If I manage to save up ever . . . And I figured it might cheer me up somehow making this list (don´t ask about the logic behind that), so I went for it.

very materialistic list of things that will keep making me broke in the next few months )

Now on the fandom/fic front, it is much easier. And so I am listing those ones as well )

!!Well that was easy. Now, to be serious. You people make me happy all year long. I suck most of it, and I am happy you tolerate me, so the biggest Christmas present for me will be if you keep being awesome pie as you are. And I demand that any of you that will get anywhere in 200 km radius of Brno will let me know, because chances are I will attempt to meet you.

Now, a little announcement. Since my landlord is kind of a douche at times, I might not have internet for a while starting December 1st. The old contract for this flat is ending, and he said he´d take care of it, but I haven’t heard anything about it ever since, and I got tired of writing him emails he won’t answer. I will still tweet random things like I am cold/pissed/hungry from work on occasions and I will abuse the internet there to at least check my email so if there is anything you want me to know, mail me! Or maybe he will surprise us. Have a good week!
