Hello everyone!

I keep wanting to post and here I am too late for anything else than for wishing you the usual. It's Christmas Eve here, and that's when all the magic happens in this family.

The cakes for sure are ready ;D

And so let me wish you merry, blessed Christmas full of love and joy and a great year 2013 filled with success and good things.

Thank you for sticking with me for yet another year, for giving me chance to meet you, to talk to you, to share all my ups and downs with you. I love you all.

my father is in love with this snowman in our yard ;D

shocku Christmas it is over . . . so much hassle for . . . oh well. The hilarious moment came when me and my mother forgot to add in the presents for me (I - the shoes and she - the bag she promised to get me to go with the shoes) underneath the Christmas tree and had to go put them in while my brother was already distributing them. /fail.

christmastreeThis year, our Christmas tree was a gift from one of my father's business partners (owner of a gardening place), so it was kind of small by our standard. Different type of tree too. BUT it was super symmetrical and thick branched. Just different . . .

heartbreakWe also survived, with only little of tears on my mother's part (when crackers for dinner on December 25th were mentioned) being apart from my sister ♥ There's the next year to be all together again :D

pencilHols finished posting, and I have mixed feelings this year. Le sigh, not much of my cup of coffee. Though I think not many people could guess what I wrote (unless I told them) in this exchange, if only because not that many of you on my f-list would actively pick that fic to read. Does any of you want to try? I might drabble for you if you guess right? I just . . . *grumbles grumbles* LOL, sorry, I'm just all fidgety still.

eyesAnyway, got woken up by my work colleague today. To be fair it was 10 am, so no harm done, but he was mildly confused by my just-woken-up/sex-line-operator voice. It was funny. The aim for the rest of the vacation - do only the work I actually planned to do during my vacation, not the stuff constantly landing in my mail box.

mistNo snow this year, it feels so strange . . .

DD:I swear this post had a purpose, but I think I forgot all about it when I saw Rupert Grint in a music video. For a moment it looked like he was the one singing it (because I am only watching from the corner of my eye) and my mind was sufficiently . . . fucked. Anyway, the song's here, I like Rupert and the song is one of those I don't mind having on in the background when I just exist, so sharing :D

phone1How's everyone? I feel weirdly detached from you.

This is becoming a tradition, one that I like. For those new to my friend's list this year, we really do split an apple during dinner on Christmas Eve, exactly for this reason, so . . .

Please have an apple with me on this Christmas Eve. If you get lost, sick or feel down, if you don't know where to go when on a crossroad, when things are tough and rough during the year, remember who you have shared the Christmas apple with. That person is always there for you.

You all know where to find me, right ♥

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

And because I just finished putting together the Christmas cookies tray, have one more picture :

apple is there for you to imagine the size of the tray ;D

hourglassI wanted to post today, then I looked at the clock and it's past 9 pm and ugh.

bellLife's been pretty intense on many fronts lately. I can't even go into details, really, it just makes my head spin. I'm told that the work front is like this every end of the year (because of everyone tying the knots they ignored all year), but the rest of it is just all badly timed, lol.

^_^;;My hols is still not finished, and the intense life seems to have scheduled itself for at least another two weeks (and I dread that more scheduling is ahead of me).

rainSo I give up (just a little). I do loom around, but I can't keep up most of the time and there's no meaning in frantically scrambling to.

movieA little hiatus is in order. I should be back before Christmas. (I want to post pics from when Kari was here, damn it D:) I'm missing loads of fandom flail and there will be no point in talking about random life joys (very, very shady pubs and cards) when they are one month old, and I'm sorry about this, but I think there's no other way.

Advent's here. This is the part I like about it.

not red this year, LE GASP

heart1LOL Count on me to make a Hiatus post way too long to read. I might pop up on your journals to comment if my evening state of total blank exhaustion permits. See you around!!!

There's been waffles on sticks, fog, bridges, fog, Jewish cemeteries, fog . . . all you can eat sushi bar and green tea ice-cream floats. Tomorrow is in the stars. But we are spending a quality Friday evening with our legs up. There are no sappy romantic movies, so it could be worse ;D
higure: ((Arashi) Jun classy)
loveletter I've started the full inbox project, so let's hope I have inspiration enough to write to 7 people for a week :D

footprint I might have [livejournal.com profile] parasol_odori next week. Excite!

! Today marks two finally:

pencil I finally posted the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan fic, and I am so, so, so happy. I can now move on and concentrate on hols. We'll see how that goes.

camera1 And I finally posted the pictures I mentioned some time ago. It's the collection from the time I took a walk up to the castle. Click on the picture bellow to see the rest. Any of them can be seen in the original size when you right click on them, idek maybe some of the ones with views could have been bigger.

cloverHave a nice week!
higure: ((NEWS) Shige profile)
eyesMy head’s been hurting so much all day, but I was so set to post that I just had to. If this makes next to no sense because of the headache, then I apologize.

glassesSo The Anti-friending meme. Ever since I first got the idea presented to me, all I could think of was ruffled feathers. I know it was one of the things that could do that. Ruffle feathers that is. I am sorry if it felt like too much, too negative and completely unnecessary, and I hope you forgive me my extravagant moment of hosting it anyway.

NGMy other concern with it was that it could turn to flat out hate meme. But people were pretty good with it, other than occasional efforts of trying too hard to make their point and failing at recognizing when it is better to stop. Then the meme got killed by a true hate meme (I has impeccable timing), so maybe that is a reason why people were rather civil too. Thank god for that because I almost did not sleep that night, afraid of letting it go unattended. In a way, this too is a conclusion, fandom can handle itself on occasions.

thumbsupThe whole thing was rather interesting. I’m sure I had more conclusions, but by now, the following three stuck in my mind, so here you go:pairings, coherence and connectivity )

heartyeyesAnyway, personal result of the meme. I suppose I have always known that being RyoDa fangirl means people are cautious of friending you. But lately I have had such a steady and nice friend list that I almost forgot. The meme reminded me that RyoDa fangirls are considered crazy and more thread than an asset to one's friends list. Therefor I now love you even more for giving me a try and tolerating my crazy. I know my mind can get very one-track sometimes when it comes to my OTP, but I hope I do not annoy you with it too much.

flowerAfter that very serious fandom analysis (LOL, fandom is serious business), have my Saturday night joy. I spent my Saturday at work, but took a walk on my way home and got myself something to liven up my kitchen. With the choice I made, it seems fall is really coming.

4leafcloverIt is a pretty fall though! The weather forecast for the next two weeks is sunny and still around 20 °C or only a little less so this is great *____________* I took a walk up to the castle today after work, so I need to sort and post those pictures sometimes. It was rather pretty.

planeAnd lastly, my sister, [livejournal.com profile] chivakaza is safely in Japan, probably sleeping more than 24 hours of travel and official business away. I am relieved, she seemed to have handled it like a boss and now she has an amazing year ahead of her. (LOL she also sent her friends to my journal to find out if the plane did not crush and since she might not have the internet for a while, I figured I'd leave this public so that curious people not willing to wait 5 months before getting worried know she is fine and safe)
higure: (Default)


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: ((Eighto) Yoko)
I last posted 20 days ago. Scary! Anyway there has been very little people reacting to my posts lately. While I try to not let it get to me, especially when I rumble about my private life, when I flail about fandom and nothing happens, it kind of saddens me. I need people to flail with. Anyway, the point is. If you do not read my entries and skip over them, do us both a favour and defriend me. Thank you very much.

Now that the bitching part is over, I have been all over the place in those 20 days. There has been plenty I wanted to post about, but then some things happened that made me draw back a little. I apologize for not commenting on your posts guys, I have seen several picture posts and such *____* so just know that I'll try to get back on track again.

Anyway, bullet points :
* I've gone to see fireworks; and have been on a boat trip and to a castle; basically I'm saying good bye to Brno, and it is sinking in that I am leaving. I admit, it is scary, but such is life.

* There has been my PC giving me blue screen and all kinds of messed up messages so I have it reinstalled and lost all my bookmarks ;____; I also lost that set of cute Japanese emot-icons. If someone still remembers how to install them, I'll be the happiest kid on the block.

* Most importantly, I have packed my stuff here and moved most of it to Prague this weekend (forgot the camera at home, which is why pictures to follow are kind of sucky):

<3 My parents picked me and my stuff up in Brno on Saturday, and on our way to Prague we stopped to eat in some village off highway. They had a tree that is 500 - 600 years old.
See under the cut! )

O.O We arrived to Prague and proceeded to get stuck in a NEW elevator in my apartment building with the mother of the owner of that apartment who panicked, turned red and started to talk about forgetting her medication for high blood pressure. It took 45 minutes to get us out of there. Click the cut for picture of "my" calming medication:
baileyyyys )

D: I found my new room not ready and the apartment in a mess (my new roommates did not leave me any space in the fridge or the bathroom and did not bother even washing the dishes before they left for the weekend). So no pictures yet and our first talk will be an interesting one.

Then we proceeded to wander around Prague and eat and have coffee and all around good time. My parents snuck me into their hotel room so I stayed there for the night, which was a great thing given the state of my room.
Pics taken on Charles bridge under the cut )

:D today we dropped the rest of the bags off - thankfully the elevator worked already - and left Prague because it was raining there.
Under the cut are two more random pictures )

Anyway in the very little fandom news:
!!! DOA deadline is approaching and I am trying not to panic over not hearing anything from most of the teams.
I had a historic ryoda fic written for me
??? today I came back to concrit meme, so here's my thread, please don't be gentle.

That is all. I am off to find a place where they'll fix my bike in Brno and then collapse because I am soooo tired. I am leaving Brno for good this Thursday and I hope the rest of the move will go smoothly. Talk to you from Prague <3
higure: ((Kat-tun) Jin hand and hair)
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: ((NEWS) Tegomass)
I got invited for ice cream they sell by out court building during my lunch break. Then there was a ride down the memory line.

There is so much to be said >.>

Anyway, dear Pix, once again happy birthday!

Dear Amy, Pix and Vix, I can't believe it's been a year since we had some ice cream like this together. I really enjoyed the time I have spent with you back then. ♥ I am happy to be able to continue being friends with all of you. I hope we'll get to share some awesome ice cream together again some day.

Dear friends list, please excuse my mushy. If you want to see a pic of something from my surroundings, I am still taking requests over here ;D.
higure: ((stock) teddy on the beach)

I think the point of that picture was the sickeningly blaring pink (not going well with the serious image my work place is trying to go for). Clearly I need to get my camera functioning again because the phone pictures suck.

I think I also got a ride home for this Friday. It's good my friends are not as forgetful as I am.

And I just realized how wrong the title can be read. It has nothing with DV though. Not at all.
higure: ((Kat-tun) Akame OMG!)
So. Yesterday I came home and my mother went: "Your dad is bowling, let's go and see him." It was some get together of business partners where they had like a bowling competition, then had the entire bowling place reserved for the night. There were also live singers and stuff.

To make long story short, we ended up occupying two bowling lanes simultaneously, in one we bowled in 6 people, in the other it was just me, my dad and my brother. I basically kept bowling almost constantly for about 4 hours and today, I can barely move. Laugh all you want, bowling is some serious exertion. I am nearly convinced one might die of excessive bowling.

In the positive news since I don´t want to go over the latest development of the serious business, I finally got my hands on the present from Amandine. Got a kat-tun key chain among other things :DDD Thank you <3 And this is what I call a complete nut job. My "old" and "new" BlackBerry. They are the same series, only one has a different, newer, number, I guess. The old one is black, the new one is shiny grey around the edges, just yeah . . . I function on two phones, so I am just switching an old Sony Ericson for a new BlackBerry, but it feels a bit over the top. Still welcome to the family. :D

Okay this entry has no real purpose other than me being incredibly lazy today and wasting a great opportunity to be a bit productive. But I am snatching a meme.

Step 1: Post this into your LJ publicly.
Step 2: Others will reply anonymously about what they really think of you.
Step 3: Cry, because this meme is so brutal, and it hurts you will never know who it is.

Just give me three seconds to enable anonymous commenting.

Have a nice weekend!

P.S.: The rumour has it Kame, Nakamaru and Ueda (with bunch of other people) went to Jin's concert last night. If this is true, KAT-TUN has made me a very proud fan (I mean more than usual). Now only if Jin stopped being so negative about where he came from and my fandom world would be a perfect place ;D.

So some of you mentioned hand writing something in those wish lists of yours.

I was in a hurry, the letters needed to be big and there were no lines, so the true nature of my cat writing came out. Thus, if the message does not get across. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

The apple sharing is possibly explained a bit better --> at the end of this post.

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.

I miss being "connected." Apparently I am an addict. I WILL NOT BE ONLINE PROPERLY UNTIL AT LEAST DECEMBER 15! It really is the worst timing possible, new reasons coming up every day. Idek what more to say. This week was crazy and there was a lots of snow.

Have a picture of snow. If you want, to mail me. Chances are you will make me very happy. I check my mails at work; unfortunately LJ is off limits there. I hope you are all well.

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!
higure: ((Junjo) romantica)
Happy birthday to Crys! Imagine the sentence sparkles and radiates all the good energy I wish you in the years to come.

Everyone gets a picture of awesome cake uncut now (definitely not the age Crys is celebrating, lol). My dad got this cake from someone yesterday. It’s what my dictionary calls raised hide. Basically it’s a tree house that hunters use; you can see them on planes or on the edges of forests around here.

The awesome thing is that the cake consisted of three different cakes. The tree chunk, the house and the bottom part were each different, but they all taste so good.
Under the cut, there are a few more pictures that mostly suck because my camera decided to, of me and my dad, and a cute little girl and my sis and well stuff. Also have a video of typical Slovak folk band playing Metalica´s Nothing else matters using cymbalo (cymbal in Slovak, I also found dulcimer?).

this should be the last time I try to kill your internet with my pics for some time )
LOL we are all pretty much walking skeletons today, so my dad did not even open his presents yet.

Rin is on the plane. And I should go and try to sleep soon if I can in this excited, yet zombie state because in twelve hours I need to go and pick her up. YEY! *collapses*
higure: ((Eighto) Yoko)
I´ve just spent too much time cutting two songs short. Gha. I also went for a massage today. My back is very happy with me. And I ironed, made name tags for 61 people (my sis has great skills with scissors) and . . . yeah those two songs were pain.

I might have an interview in over a week. Ironically enough, it´s a Slovak Law firm. Ehm Slovak law? really. I mean REALLY! (yes, it was me who applied and said something about being able to perform equally well in Slovak legal system in my motivation letter.)

I applied for a job in Brno that would be kind of interesting and almost entirely in French. Please, please, interview. After I applied, I found out (kind of by chance) the selection process is run by a person who I met when translating for "my Americans" a year ago. He gave me his business card, in case "he can be of some help" back then. He saw me perform (translating a lecture and following discussion between my Americans and a Supreme court judge from English to Czech and vice versa for almost 3 hours.) The thing is, someone would probably write to him now, reminding oneself in some way but I can´t do these things. Be like, hey I´m applying for this job, do you remember me? I cringe when thinking about it and don´t know how to do it. It sucks. If they call me for an interview, that would be good, I could (in a way) work it there.

My friend also send me a job opening add with ICC. It´s kind of something I REALLY REALLY want to do. IN PARIS! FOR ARBITRATION COURT! UGH! If someone has tips for writing awesome covering letters that will blow people´s minds, let me know. Also a serious question. When you apply by an email and you are asked for covering letter, do you attach it in a separate attachment or do you write it into the body of an email?

That got long.

I was lazy to post pictures yesterday, but here be a process of prettying up and finishing our sweets and cakes. loads of pictures because I went overboard )
higure: ((Kat-tun) Jin hand and hair)
shockuI was going to wait until the rest of the thesis stuff is decided but I don’t know when that is going to be since it is still not up. So here I go.

christmastreeI came back from the mountains yesterday, have a pic or three. bb can take very sucky pics and my camera was in Romania.
six is more like it )
NGIt´s cold even at home though I blame my body for this, I think I´m just really really nervous by now. 17 days until finals.

!!So basically I will not be around much from now on (lol not much of a new thing, right?). I might wander around, comment to your personal entries maybe, but more likely I’ll disappear. I have downloaded Ryo singing with Saito since I came back, and I’m glad Tat-chan has no concerts for some time now because I know myself and know I would want to know how he is coping but that’s it. Agh his injury is already messing with my fic exchanges plans. Not that that is the important thing to concentrate here on.

paperclipI might do something on my fic journal today or tomorrow because I feel like it; the result of it will probably come only after hiatus is over, but never say never, I’ve been known to write instead of sleeping during exams.

heartbreakoh yeah, fic, [livejournal.com profile] tatoeba wrote me a ryoda drabble here ♥ and I found something amazing in my inbox this morning ♥ ♥ ♥ if it ever goes online, I´ll be linking it for sure.

wrenchLol for a hiatus announcement, or whatever this is, it’s damn messy. Basically. I will not be around much (at all) until September 17th. If you want to get in touch with me, e-mail me or pm me (for my email address), I do check the emails twice a day, kind of with my meals, so it will not be a bother or anything, more like a nice distraction.

Off I go. tegoshidesu
