Fic games 2012 ended.

I can't say I regret running it, but I must say it wasn't as much fun as it could have been. But Jess, my awesome co-mod, not only took so much off my hands when my real life became extremely busy, she also saved the official Fic Games community from me expressing some of my ... discomforts, lol. Anyway, this is not the post where I'll voice them either because I'm in no mood to recreate that again right now. But maybe one day I will. Because really, I feel like some things should be said even if they make me sound pressed, might feel uncomfortable to someone or make me the bad guy.

ANYWAY, there was an idea to post top individual fics from this year. Not to post all scores, I don't want to put anyone on spot, but just some. If someone did the work, this info is public, which is why I feel it is okay to do this. We just did the math for you since we had to.

So I am listing the top 5 fics according to overall scores. Before I do, a few remarks.
- scores are overall once; it seems LJ no longer provides you with things like average and median when you close the poll (this could have been see in the previous years of Fic Games, but I either need a special code for this which I do not know or LJ changed their polls functioning).

- thus essentially, these might not be the fics that had the BEST ranking, but the ones with most votes. On the other hand, I believe lots of people do not vote instead of giving low points, so it is a bit telling (the best scoring fic was KAT-TUN gen!!!), but then, e.g. akame is not half as read as it used to be - more like shunned, so it is only natural that there won't be as many voters.

- the points of team mates are not counted in; there were few people who voted on fics of their own teams but in accordance with the rules, these votes were not taken into account.

cut for the kick ass table )

There are things to learn from these polls. Not all AU is AU enough. People will vote on certain fics but will not comment on them (more than on others). Gen is loved a lot. People who don't write are stricter voters than writers themselves. This year, it was much less about the category and much more about the fics themselves...

These are generalizations, but the creeper I am, it was interesting to see the polls evolve (even if LJ did stupid stuff like allow people to check two scores for one question despite the fact it should not be possible with this type of poll, lol).

So I hope this was fun for someone else than me, and I do not sound too creepy.

I am out of fun facts for the moment. Your thoughts and observations?

HELP?!

SO, as I have already mentioned, Je Fic Games are happening again this year. Here have the link to the big announcement post.

I have a question for you all. We need to think of a theme/prompts for this year and there was the idea of using famous JE quotes. And the perfect example of “What’s wrong with being naked?“

But I am really bad at these things, so the first thing to do is to ask the f-list. Any ideas what else could be used? More quotes from our lovely boys?

In rl news, I have moved, everything went wrong, and I am doing all the things at the same time. I have no clue why I am starting yet another fandom event right now ;__;

Also one more RL question: For some reason, this place attracts little insect like crazy. I have never seen this, not even in mother nature so to speak. I´m using Reid (repellent put into an electric socket) for inside, but all it does is to kill all these tiny, tiny flies and some mosquitoes until the morning. But this means I wake up to my floor covered in little flies. I could vacuum clean every day, and it spreads everywhere. IDK what to do. Any ideas? I need to google if there isn’t a herb that repels them or something so they don’t even want to fly in, but until then . . . suggestion?

Now posting!


I've had like a long plead/rant ready in my head about how and why people should comment, but then few people were actually awesome enough to do so, so I calmed down.

Anyway still, please if you read (and actually finish) a fic, it probably already means it is good on some level because these are not short by far. Please do leave a comment then.

Just. Help me make the posting phase of this challenge as enjoyable as the writing (hopefully) was for the authors. The community being alive and people actually reading and flailing over the things authors plotted together is a big part of the challenge being fun and worth running. ♥

In other news. I am crazy. I have managed to get in contact with the mods of [livejournal.com profile] je_ficgames, and I want to run it again. I'm recruiting a comod though because running Fic games is not the least complicated thing out there, and it is time consuming at moments (team communities, prompt claiming, more coding during posting ...). I can't do this alone. I was also looking at the schedule and the one possibility I like the most clashes with my vacation (and no Internet) time, so I really do need help. Anyone interested?

That is all for today. Life updates when life stops being too time demanding ;D
higure: ((Arashi) Do it! Do it!)
thumbsupSo, almost everything on my to-do-list is done and I think I can start stressing over the apartment issues tomorrow. I hope so.

OKFTF posted reveals. No one attempted to guess what I wrote ;__; It's a shame that it's such a "no once cares" thing because I would have liked to know how ninja or not I was this year. (Since normally I am very transparent). My recipient didn't guess me though, so yay :D

arrowroundAnyway since FTF ended, DOA is of course starting. Pimping goes here.

Devil or Angel.

The JE collaboration fic challenge.


._.;;I have a favor to ask regarding the Lyrics theme explained in the intro post. ATM I have around 30 lines from different JE lyrics, but I definitely need more.

pencilWhat I need is concrete parts of songs, that are either funny, substantial, famous for one thing or another. Like the Giri Giri part from Real Face or Omoide zutto zutto part of Love So Sweet, of course with English translation.

This is how it will look like on the actual list from which people will choose:
Kanjani8 - Misetekure: Sono karada mo Sono kokoro mo Subete boku ni misete kure (That body, that heart, show it all to me)
KAT-TUN - Love Yourself: Kimi ga kirai na kimi ga suki (I like the you that you hate)

paperclipIt can be just few words, or a longer sentence or two, but I obviously miss stuff from groups I don't really know, Kisumai, HSJ, SMAP, Tokio . . . but in general, anything that comes to your mind is fine, even famous misheard lyrics, I can always weed out the ones that I want, right?

rainHelp! I want as many choices as possible. *puppy eyes*

shockuLastly, does anyone want to write with me? I'll be a bit harder to write with this year, we'd have to start only after May 10th when I come back from Japan, and most of my writing happens on weekends these days, but I do want to participate . . .

I think this is all I have for tonight, I'm now off to fulfill the "relax" part of my to do list

higure: ((KAT-TUN) 5-nin)

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: ((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.
higure: ((Arashi) Do it! Do it!)
Today would be actually a good day to post about how things have been since I've moved whole 8 days ago, or just today because today felt like kind of an okay day but mha, I just don't feel like it. So instead ima pimp!



Double the trouble!

Devil or Angel.

Now posting!


So yeah. I hope people will find something they'll like over there. If you would help me spread the word, that would be great too. here is the handy box for the sparkly text only, not for the banner:


My own DOA experience this year has taken a few interesting turns and twists, and I am honestly really anxious about the result, but I regret nothing. There are some great moments in the fic (I think) and I learned a lot and tried a lot of stuff that I usually do not do at all when writing, so it has definitely been challenge in the right sense of the word. Now only to manage the rest of the mod duties that [livejournal.com profile] parasol_odori carries with me (awesomely) and life will be peachy.

Also no more exchanges for me until Hols, so I should FINALLY get on with my Help Japan fics. I am pretty sure it will still take a lots of time because work is really intense, but I will get there!

Have a nice weekend people!
higure: ((Kinki) Domoto)
There is 15!!!! teams signed-up for [livejournal.com profile] je_devilorangel. This is not why I am posting, but I figured I'd share some joy. Now only if I could start writing for it. It is planned for the weekend.

I hope I will manage to actually do some writing instead of rewatching Beach Boys, all because Rin posted the opening (that you need to watch!!!) and made me want to. Really. I so do not need to stare at pretty 90's styled boys in tinted sunglasses searching for oceans right now ;__; By which I mean to say, someone else needs to get hooked!



!!Now the real reason I am posting. I finished my RyoDa Fic List of Doom. If you are craving a RyoDa fic, it is probably waiting for you to find it on that list. Head this way because it is posted out of order, but I though some of you on my flist might silently appreciate its existence <3

Tomorrow is FRIDAY! All of you, I hope you have a good one!
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: ((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: ((Kat-tun) Maru awesome tie)
I´m leaving for my ski trip tomorrow! Will be cruising Italian slopes of Dolomites for six days and will return on Saturday, 26th. There is a small pool in the hotel we´re staying in. I am excite! And I hope I won´t have too many urges to kill my family. I am taking some stuff for the article I need to write until March 15th, but I don´t have any illusions.

I have no clue if there is any internet where I´m going, so I posted the [livejournal.com profile] ryoda_love summary today and pre-coded reveals for Ficolate, which I´ll be sending to my sis tonight. So since I might not be able to say this on Monday when the exchange ends officially, I wanted to thank all of you who helped me beta, let me whine, hold my hand virtually while I read a character death, waded through no capital letters and such. You kept me sane, you are my heroes!

On that note, I already hinted this, but the writer that was supposed to write for me disappeared. I was just glad I didn´t need a pinch hit, though she didn´t comment on the fic for her either which makes me sad. Anyway, it meant I was not supposed to get a fic. But someone wrote it for me anyway and sent it to the exchange email, as Secret Admirer. Clearly I still don´t know who this is, but really all the help that I received this round of exchange plus this fic that just kind of appeared (and is perfect) made me feel incredibly loved. So again thank you. Also dear Secret Admirer, feel free tom come clean any time, so I can give you credit for the beautiful fic!

So off I go to enjoy the snoooooow

I hear it won´t be this pretty because there isn´t much snow off slopes in places lower than 2000 m above the sea, but there is plenty on the slopes so really I can’t contain my glee and excitement.
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: ((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!

My Valentinr - sashjun
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: ((Dorama) Akira shock!)
downarrowI’ve been pretty sick for over a week now. I ended up crawling to the doctor’s office last Wednesday, and he gave me tons of medicine that make me have cramps on most days but that finally seem to be working. He also told me to stay home for 2 WEEKS! I am trying really hard not to think of how my January paycheck will look like when I receive it at the beginning of February. I bargained a deal of being allowed to go to work a bit earlier if I feel better, but at the end, I will have missed 8 work days by this Monday when I finally plan to go back. I still don’t feel good enough now, so let’s hope I’ll be okay enough by then.

eyesThe other reason this sickness sucks (other than not being at work for a long period of time within my probation period and no money and my colleague thinking I’m having a blast) is that my parents are going skiing around February 20th and I was invited to go with. I was planning on taking a week off for that (because it is Italy and I can take being with my parents much better on ski trips where I basically ski without them all they and they would pay and I would close my eyes to that for once), but I can’t possibly miss another week of work next month when I was not there since January 5th ;__;

japaneseteaThere is nothing much else to say since I was basically able to just sleep and eat medicine (that drugged me up decently) for the past week. News worthy is the fact that [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith as well as Ficolate assignments went out. YAY! Are you excited? I am mostly scared out of my pants.

wrenchOh, I’m finally getting back on track with [livejournal.com profile] sanslunettes project. I also created mydramalist if someone wants to know what dramas I’ve see and got a tumblr where I plan to stalk people and their pretty. By the way, who should I stalk? What’s the procedure?

arrowroundRight. A friend sent me an article to translate today so in a fit of feeling a bit better I did translate it. Unfortunately surrogate motherhood took away all my enthusiasm to finally finish something I had planned for today. So instead, have a freakishly long and very late year in review fic meme.

I definitely am too wordy )
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.

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

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!

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 ♥
