I just watched 5x08 Changing Channels. It is so awesome!

cut b/c it's spoilery )

Anyway, I need to go to bed. Or watch the next episode. One of the two. Or both, actually XD

Hi! It's been quite a while. But I really don't want to do the whole billion-words-long update thing. Especially since the only really "important" big news is this: I am now studying to become an English and German teacher. It's going to take another 5 years more or less, but I'm pretty happy with it and I'm fairly confident that I'll continue to be happy with it.
In fact, I really don't know why I didn't study English to start with. Because really, I think English is just about the only thing that I've consistently been interested in. Not even other languages such as French, Spanish, German or JAPANESE (which I bleeding studied) can compare. But well, I was quite sure that actually studying English would take all the fun out of it. Which is stupid.

Oh, oh! Awesome thing? At the English department you can actually learn Irish! How cool is that?! I am so going to start learning Irish next semester!

Also, last week or something I started watching Merlin. You know, the BBC version. Which is AWESOME! I love it! Sadly, I've finished watching the first season already and, though there will be a second season, it's not out yet. I'm not sure if they've even started filming yet. But anyway, it's still great. And unless I read something wrong, the third season of Robin Hood's going to start up sometime this month. Which is also great because British English! Because seriously, I need to listen to more British English because I've developed a disturbing tendency to pronounce some words the American way. And although there's mostly nothing wrong with American English, I really prefer the British accent. Also the spelling. And the phonetic writing system (IPA FTW!).

Something else I really kind of want to do is start writing stuff. At some point in time I wrote fanfiction (almost never put online), but I really want to be a bit creative again. It's been so long. Sadly, sadly, sadly I totally lack any kind of idea. Which is why I'm going to try out some kind of challenge thing. In private of course. Unless I actually manage to produce something worth reading XD

I also need a new ringtone for my mobile. Dean Winchester saying "Your phone's ringing. Pick up your phone!" is very cool and also effective, but I'm kind of pining for some music...or something else. Ooooh...how about Monty Python...Brave Sir Robin, anyone? Or Flying Circus. But maybe I'll go back to AC/DC. Anyway, I'll find something, I'm sure.

Also, I really need a new bloody mood theme! I'm getting kind of bored with this one.
And would you look at that? Long entry! So anyway, I think I'll go do something about the ringtone...or the mood theme. Or maybe I'll go find some new icons...

Notice my witty subject line. Isn't it witty? ... Yeah, I didn't think so either XD

Anyway, bungo (classical Japanese) didn't suck as much as I though it would today. Which is pretty awesome because last time I was feeling quite depressed about having to learn it.

On the other hand, the weather sucks. Again. Only today there's not so much wind, but more rain. *shrugs* Whatever. I can live with that.

But I have to speak to people today...you know, get to know new people. At a kind of party thing I guess. Will probably have to do it in Japanese too. Ach and I'm so not in the mood to talk to anyone today, no matter what language! Well...actual talking, I mean. Obviously I don't mind written talking. Yeah, yeah, you don't have to tell me about my asocial tendencies, I know all about them. XD

I'm in the library again. And I have no idea where to go for lunch today. Altough...hey! I just remembered that I already decided where to go in the morning in the bus! Mmmmm...pancakes...

Oh hey, yesterday I watched a very awesome film. It's called Bon Cop, Bad Cop. Takes place in Canada. And it's about two cops. One from Montréal and one from Toronto. And they have to work together, because there was a murder and the victim was placed on the limes limes limes ah! border! Placed on the border of Québec and Ontario. Feet in Ontario and head in Québec. Anyway, the film is in English and French, which is awesome as long as you have subtitles, because Canadian French? Is strange. At least to my ears. Sometimes it almost sounds like a Viennese trying to speak French XD But the film is great (explosions, fights, humour, slash (at least in my mind XD)). And I learned some new French swear words (like hostie de calice de tabernac), which is awesome because that's the most fun stuff to learn XD *is happy* When I get home today (after hopefully having talked to at least one person) I'll watch it again. *is even happier*

I thought it was about time that I resurfaced in the land of LJ. Don't take me wrong, I've been lurking something serious, reading fanfiction mostly XD, but I've only commented really sparingly. Which kind of makes me feel bad. Also, I'm in a communicating kind of mood :)

So, update time... Yesterday I handed in the research paper for my Bachelor's. I'm kind of nervous about it, but on the other hand I have a kind of good feeling about this paper. Other than that Uni usually kind of sucks, but what can you do *shrugs*

In other news, I've recently watched due South seasons 3 and 4. I used to watch it all the time as a child. I loved it! Even though I can't even remember which seasons I watched. It's such a brilliant show x3 I'm so happy I found it again.
And so I've been reading bunches of dS FFs. Also lovely :) And now I kind of really want to write something myself...only I never have any ideas XD Ah well.

Right. I'll stop now. Gotta go sleep.
faustaufsaug: (Matt-Worstdayever)
I've got a headache. Again. These last few days I've been getting one every day in the afternoon. I'm starting to get slightly paranoid again. Especially since even Parkemed (pain pills, dammit!) don't seem to be helping anymore. And don't even mention Aspirin to me...I've long since given up on them.
Last time I got a bit paranoid about my headaches, I asked my friend, who has lots of doctors in her family and who's studied medicine for one year herself, about brain tumours. She said brain tumours don't hurt. I'm inclined to believe her. For one, because of all those medically knowledgable people in her family, and for another, because she's prone to getting a bit paranoid herself XD When I talked to my mother, she said that when a brain tumour hurts, you'r at the end of your rope anyway XD That strangely makes me feel better, too. Probably because it means there's no point in going to a doctor lol
Naw, but really, it's probably just the weather. It's being crazy again and it's not even April. It's cloudy, not cold, but strangely warm, you know what I mean...rainy, windy. Headache-inducing.

In other news, I'm thinking about joining the Treat Much Right Campaign. Because, really, Robin can be quite the asshole. As can the others. They should really appreciate him more. And it was mentioned in a fanfic I've read, but Much really is like a mother to them. And he's cute. And he's always so worried! Awwww, Much, we love you!

Also, I'm hungry. *runs off to eat*
faustaufsaug: (kelso_2thumbs)
Right. First of all, we (my siblings and me) got a Wii to my birthday. And I got The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. And by the way, can somebody tell me why it's called The Legend of Zelda, when the protagonist's name is actually Link? For the longest time, I thought his name was Zelda XD Anyway, it's really interesting. I haven't played it in a couple of days, though, because first, I had to finish watching The Women's Murder Club. Very brilliant TV series based on a book (or maybe a book series?) by James Petterson, who is also brilliant.

But, I haven't actually finished The Women's Murder Club (I will have to, though, I'm near finished) because of my new obsession: Robin Hood (the BBC version). Which is also brilliant and great and wonderful!

I also have to finish this great game for Nintendo DS that I bought myself some time ago. In Japanese it's called Subarashiki kono sekai, in English/German it's The world ends with you. Yes, the "translation" doesn't make the most sense lol But it's a great game and I really need to finish it. At some point. Maybe once I've finished watching Robin Hood... XD

Hm...I might also get myself a new mood theme soon. And I think I should get started with my del.isio.us page...
faustaufsaug: (murdock_garbage)
Lately, I have been totally taken with the A-Team. Like I've already mentioned, I've bought myself the first season. And then, last Monday I bought the second season. And I've been reading A-Team fanfiction like it's going out of fashion. And that is a sentence I'm lol'ing at a bit, because the A-Team? At least here in Austria it's so far out of fashion my little sister doesn't even know it. Which is something I'll have to rectify.

I've even tried my hand at making icons...I guess they're okay, but I dunno...*shrugs* Maybe I'll even post some of them in that A-Team icons community XD

Oh and last Sunday I finally finished watching the third season of Supernatural. And I think I have a new favourite episode. Ghostfacers! LOL Awesome XD Poor Corbett, though...I really liked that guy. He was really cute. I wonder if there is any Corbett/Ed (it was Ed, right? Not Harry?) fanfiction out there XD

Oooh and I've found an aw-haw-hawesome source for Supernatural icons right here. Oh hey, now I can finally check out the icons for the last few episodes! Woohoo!

Also, the weather is disgusting! Well, okay...I guess it's kind of okay. But it's so hot! And it's not even summer yet! Yesterday we had 28°C at around 15:00. I don't even know how hot it was today...*runs off to check weather on nice little website* Ugh! Another probable 28° for tomorrow. And of course my first class starts right around noon...man! *whine*

Whatever. I'll go take a look at those icons now. And then...hm...I think I'll watch the next A-Team episode. Btw, once I've finished the second season I'll buy myself the third! *is excited* And after that...maybe another one. Or maybe I'll read another fanfic. Maybe another one of the Face/Murdock kind. *wanders off, pondering the F/M*

P.S.: I'm so totally on the retro-trip, I even looked for Golden Girls icons a few days ago XD But really, Sophia is awesome! She's the absolute best!
faustaufsaug: (face-artist)
I am absolutely tired and sleepy and my eyes are falling shut even as I'm writing this here. So, you may ask, why am I not in bed? Well, the answer is simple. Because it's boring. On the other hand, I haven't got anything very interesting to do either...but I thought I'd update this here lj a bit XD

So. First and most important: The A-Team!!! I bought the first season yesterday. That was the best purchase evar! I finished the season today. Am thinking about buying the second one on Monday. Here's a contra to buying the second season: I'm a bit of a Dagobert Duck. Not when it comes to the amount of money in my bank account (sadly...I wouldn't even think about not buying the A-Team then...), but rather when it comes to my reluctance in spending it. Well...I'm sometimes reluctant XD But then again, it's the A-Team and I don't think I'll be able to resist them. In fact, I think I'm a bit addicted right now XD I even made some icons...only I'm not too sure about them. Although...whatever, right? But I'm too tired to do anything about it today anyway lol

Right...is there even anything else relatively interesting to say? I dunno. Probably not XD So I'll go now...and do something. Maybe find me some fanfics somewhere...
faustaufsaug: (Animated-Chicksright)
Yes...I still have exactly zero pages written...zero of at least fifteen. That's not good. Not good at all...but I just can't bring myself to do anything academically productive.

BUT! I have a new mood theme! It's by [livejournal.com profile] enginedriven and it's awesome! Boondock Saints...because last night I watched the film on youtube. And needless to say, I really liked it.

And I've got a few more icons by [livejournal.com profile] atellix. Actually, I got those yesterday...or something, but I can be quite lazy when it comes to posting ...posts. Right. Here, look:



I like the one in the middle best. Because, just...Brucey's look is scary-awesome :)

Hey, you know what's really beautiful? The opening song to the Boondock Saints. It's called "The Blood of Cu Chulainn". There's a video on youtube of the song with a slideshow of lots of beautiful pictures. Why don't you just take a look :)



Oh! Funny stuff, but I stretched my arms today...you know, like you do sometimes. And so I'm stretching my arms, then I finished stretching my arms, sat back up (I leaned back while stretching) and noticed that my neck hurt. You know, side of my neck down to my shoulder. No idea what it's called in English, but it kind of...pulls(?) sometimes. Yeah, stretching's a menace.

Now I'm really kind of tired. Guess I should go to sleep now...maybe get up earlier tomorrow...try to do some actual work...aw man...I'm depressing myself *sighs*

P.S.: Today was the beginning of spring, yeah? So it follows that it snowed, right? Totally normal weather-ly behaviour. Especially seeing as we only had two days of actual snow all winter. Weather's fucked up, man. But whatever...G'night.
faustaufsaug: (McClane-bwgrin)
Yes. I mean that.
Watched 2 and 3 yesterday night and this morning respectively. And you know what? I really need to own all the DVDs. I need them like I need...I dunno...water? No, no...Chocolate! I need them like I need chocolate! I really want to watch the fourth one again. But I can't because *points above* I don't actually have it...and I don't really actually have the time anyway (goddamn university!).

But anyway, icons!!! I got some! They were made by [livejournal.com profile] atellix. And I don't really know her, but she's awesome!

Here are the icons I snagged from her:



Sweet, right? Yes, of course they are.

Just finished watching Die Hard...the first one. And it has a punchline. It really, really does. And, I mean, just...WTF? Dude...*shakes head* Unbelievable. And it's such a fucking cliché! I mean, what was it? "If that's how they celebrate Christmas, I don't wanna be here at New Year's"? Something like that. I'm thinking...either that or Karl spontaneously resurrecting is the most ridiculous part of the film. But that's okay. I liked it anyway :) I mean, explosions like whoa! Also, Bruce Willis with hair. It's just strange. I like him better bald.

I also watched Die Hard 4.0 this afternoon. Lots of explosions. And a jet. A jet that's trying to kill Bruce Willis...or rather the pilot's trying. And he's just not succeeding. Which kind of makes me laugh :) Especially since he ends up ejecting out of the jet since it, I don't know, malfunctions or something? Can't remember. Also, there's an FBI agent called Johnson...there were two Johnson's in the first part. I'm guessing it's a trend. And that amuses me a lot, too. Just like Brucey not dying (and is it dying or is it dieing...dude...gotta be dying, right?).

I kind of really want an SPN/Die Hard crossover now.

You know, it would be kind of bad, if I watched the next episode of Psych now. I should really learn a bit for tomorrow. Really. Kind of. You know? But I really, really don't want to. And, I mean, there's going to be another time for this exam, you know, for those people, who didn't pass the first time or didn't think they'd pass so they didn't try? And I'm going to try, of course and as long as he doesn't give us the text about stereotypes to translate, everything should be kind of fine, I hope. I should really look up all the words I don't know...but, but, I want to watch Psych, dammit!

Okay. Here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to find out what those words I don't know mean. And then I'm going to watch Psych. Even though I should go to bed kind of early. But that's okay. I can function on 6 or 5 1/2 or even 5 hours of sleep. Not happily, but I can. Also, I had a nap this afternoon (should've studied instead, dammit, then I could've been watching Psych without many regrets now).

Good. So I'mma go do that now. (God I don't wanna *whine*)
faustaufsaug: (Default)
Oh my God, ohmygod!!! General Hammond! In Psych! OMG!

*switch to coherent*
So I'm, you know, watching the first episode of Psych (cause someone mentioned it somewhere and I was intrigued) instead of studying for my exam tomorrow or the one the day after tomorrow or even the one the day after the day after tomorrow and suddenly!!! There's General Hammond! In Psych! As a guy called...Mr. MacCallum...or something. I wasn't listening too closely...I was only waiting for George to start speaking so I could be sure that it was really him.
On another note, he also appears in NCIS and I was flaily then too.

Right...I'm going to go back to Psych now. And then I'm going to study for my exam...hopefully.
And I think there might be another more normal entry in the near future...I hope. Because seriously, it's been 4 weeks or something since my last one.

Anyway...need to see what happens next!!! General Hammond, ohmigod!

Just read an awesome fic by mad_gaters. It's funny. And all in all just great. You might notice that I'm a little speechless. Just know that I lauged a lot and reading it made me happy.

I'll just copy the summary and other relevant stuff right in here.

A Fashionable Profit-Supernatural fic
Title: A Fashionable Profit
Rating: R
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: None
Category: CRACK!FIC, Humor
Summary: "Why the hell didn't you tell me they were taking your picture in nothing but a pair of Daisy Dukes?"

Today was a good day.

Thursdays are my Chinese days...meaning that they're full of Chinese classes. And today I had my Chinese mid-terms. And I did really well! Which, of course, made me totally happy. I needed a good scholastic experience...been too long since I had any real fun in my classes. And does anyone else find it kind of...ironic (or just strange) that an exam brings me back my joy in learning? But then again, if you do good in an exam, I guess it's a given that you get motivated again. Anyway, it was really nice...

And now I'm really tired...but I just saw that a story that I've been waiting on has been updated...Well, guess I have no other choice, but to read it :) And then I'm going to bed...I'm already looking forward to it ^^

I feel really lazy right now...

...and I like Jethro Tull. But our football (and I mean that in the British English way) team totally lost today. First half of the game stayed 0-0, but apparently right after the break the others scored a goal. And soon after another two. I don't actually know the end score, since I didn't actually watch the game, but my father did and he told me what happened when I went downstairs. I'm guessing the others scored a few more goals...wouldn't surprise me too much. Ah well. Gotta go read now :)

So...I've been thinking...for one, that I should write in this here journal again because, you know, it's been a week or something. And for two, that I might put links to fanfics I like in here because otherwise I'm never going to find them again (which is, of course, an exaggeration, at least I hope it is). And on the other hand it might be interesting to see how many fics I read (in a day) that I really like...though knowing myself like I do, I think there might be days (probably a lot) where I won't post anything...because that's the kind of lazy that I am. But let's just ignore the laziness and pretend that on those days I didn't read a single fanfic and instead studied like a good student. (Yeah, I don't believe myself either)

So anyway...first one in here is this:
http://users.livejournal.com/__tiana__/71275.html
Title: Don't Go Mistaking Paradise
Author: __tiana__
It's an RPS fanfic based on a film called "Some Kind Of Wonderful" featuring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. I'm going to put the summary in here too, because I don't usually like going into a fanfic blind (so to say).
Summary: AU. Jensen loves only two things in his life: drumming and his best friend Jared. Unfortunately, Jared, his head buried in his painting and a years old crush on a girl named Sandy, only knows about the drumming.

It's in two parts and I really, really liked it. I'm never quite sure about RP fanfics...but Supernatural kind of pulled me in. But I still prefer SPN fics...here the characters we put in our stories are at least fictional (and I use the "our" loosely...I'm not much of a writer and I've never written SPN). I always feel kind of funny reading RPS because, well, it must be strange enough, if the characters you're playing in a TV show are written about, but yourself? And you know, I could go on, but it would make me feel kind of hypocritical since I'm reading those fics...at least from time to time.

Right-o...I think that's it for now...not much else to say and I haven't had a lot of time to read yet today. So I'll just go back to that now.

Oh and by the way...the userpic? Yes, that's a sunflower in snow. I took the picture on November 11th (and how cool is that?). I love snow. And Sunflowers.
