...coming home and finding....

... a surprise present from [profile] belina ^_~ ♥ your best friend. ♥♥

And not just any present, but a so called "Schultüte" (large cornet of cardboard filled with sweets and little presents given to children in Germany on their first day at school)! :D :D

She made one for me, because I started started school again a few weeks ago (I'm not sure I mentioned it here, but I believe many of you saw it on facebook...)! how sweet is that?!

Thank you again, sweetheart, thank you so much!

And it was so pretty, too.... wanna see?

clicky click! )

I know I've been scarce again... but I dropped my computer broke a couple of weeks ago, and I had to send it in for repairs. I did get a replacement from the nice IT guy at work, but I didn't have my files or my programs, so I didn't spend a whole lot of time online...

I got it back now (and thank god my hard drive and data was all intact), but I've been busy with school, the big scout event that is coming up in November and other stuff, so...^^;;;

Talking of the big scout event... I'm actually off to camp for a week in a couple of hours where we're gonna create/paint the backdrop for the play, do rehearsals and other preparation for the event. It says there's WLAN at the place, but I'm not holding my breath. I do have to go into work on Thursday, but other than that I'll be at camp, fooling around with paint and brushes and plaster and other fun things... *grins* it'll be busy, but at least I get to spend the whole week in the same place as the boy ♥ ^_~

Anyway, gotta finish packing and cleaning and then off I am....

back to black

over the past year or so, I've been experimenting with my hair color. Thanks to the boy, no less.

I've been dying my hair for about ten years now, and it's mostly been black. pretty much everyone who does know me with my real hair color (with the exception of my dad...^^;) says that 'dark' looks better than the unspectacular mid-ash brown that would be my natural hair. Those who don't know my real hair color usually don't even notice it, unless the roots are showing badly because of my laziness to re-dye. XD

Anyway, the boy has been whining at me to grow the dyed hair out and leave it natural. No. Out of the question (I really dislike my real hair color). But I was willing to compromise and went from black to dark brown, and it wasn't all bad, really. It's a bit softer than the black, especially when freshly dyed, and it's still dark enough not to clash with my beloved red clothes. However, a little while ago I came across a couple of photos where I had my hair all black, and I fell back in love with it. So, the next time I bought dye, I went for the black again.

Now, one good thing though, that came from the experimenting is, that while I was too scared of the black dye to dye my hair myself (black is REALLY black, and any mistake, be it blotches on skin or missed spots in the hair, is just very very visible), I did dare doing it with the dark brown.
That was not a problem. And this time? I DID IT AGAIN. WITH BLACK DYE.

---> IT TURNED OUT FABULOUSLY! ^__________________^ *is very proud of her mad hair dying skills*

thus, not only back to black, but BACK TO SPOTLESS BLACK! Huzzah!


*cough* post-Christmas/New Years entry shall follow tomorrow. er. later today, that is.

bed now, appointment at the dentist in...6 1/2 hours. Yikes.

I think I kind of forgot to mention this....

the boy and I are going on a weekend escape to London. First time for me, too! ^___________^ *EXCITED*

be back on Tuesday (and probably drowning in work ....^^;)


...not dead...^_~

There is a softly snoring boy on my shoulder, twitching in his sleep occasionally and holding onto my arm as if he was afraid I would leave ♥♥♥!
There is also something weird/boring on tv because I can't reach the remote because of said sleeping boy. oh well.

it's good to be home. ^_^

however, I had a most lovely weekend in Munich with [personal profile] gwy, who I decided to visit spontaneously as I had an additional day off on Friday (my company moved to another part of Zurich and they decided to give us the day off while they did the major moving). We talked a lot and caught up on many things, including loooooooooooooads of Merlin stuff. *laughs* We had yummy food every day (sushi, blueberry pancakes, fresh dates, and butterkeks ice cream being the highlights), had a most wonderful walk in the English Garden and an old cemetery, and did everything to ignore the nasty weather that held up for most of the weekend.

Munich needs to be closer, so I can see gwygwy more often. *firm nod*

I also got to meet [personal profile] chaosmaka and [personal profile] ronsoftie and spend a fun afternoon with them ^______________^ *waves* hey ladies! More time next time, yes?

And I met up with a really old friend of mine. We've known each other since we were about two years old but lost touch over the last couple of years (it was actually ten years ago that I met her in person), and it was great to finally see her again and catch up on ...the last ten years. XD

We are not mentioning the insane amount of money I spent.. but hey, new stuff! *grins*

Anyway, it's back to work tomorrow, so bed time now. *sleeeeeepy*

morning has broken

Sunday morning, 5.15am.....

...the boy's fire pager goes off and out the door he is....

and now I'm sitting here, not sure if I should go back to bed. Since I usually get up around this time, going back to bed now is probably just resulting in my being tired and sleepy all day.
On the other hand... it's a Sunday and it's STILL DARK OUTSIDE! ~.~

hm...curl up on the sofa and catch up with some of my shows? might be an idea. ^_^

I know I should probably use the opportunity to make a real update on here, but I have this strange feeling that there is so much to tell...that I have nothing to say. Or maybe better, I'm not sure where to start.

So...while this is not a meme, ask me any question (about my life or fandom or something else), and I'll try to answer as truthfully as I can. ^_^

i are ninja...

... because I'm actually not here, really.


I'm technically on vacation in the apartment up in the mountains with the boy until wednesday. we took off late friday night after both working overtime... as we've done pretty much daily over the past two-three weeks...

I thought I would have internet up there, but alas, my new computer does not seem to be dial-up compatible anymore and that's all we have there. XP

So, why can I post this entry? well, I had to come down for a couple of hours to take over the new apartment (I HAVE THE KEYS! IT IS MINE NOW! mwahahaha).however, there was no chosing the date, unfortunately, so, instead of sleeping in and then going skiing with the boy this morning, I had to get up early and drive all the way down here. however, since we did forget a couple of crucial things in the rush late friday night ( like...half of our food. >.<.) I used to opportunity to use the internet real quick, get a couple of things done that were long overdue, and in a couple of minutes I'm gonna get back in the car and drive back up into snow, sunshine and loooooove. XD

Also? I'm gonna move in two weeks! ^_____________^ Yay!

The not so yay? I haven't packed a thing yet. *cough* But that's what the upcoming weekend is for. Yes.

as I said, I'll be back wednesday night, but I fear that that thursday and friday will be crazy as I will have to make up for my absence at work. augh.

I'm very much looking forward to the move being over so I can settle down at least at one place....

miss you guys. ;_;

Today, the boy and I have been together for half a year.


and we had an absolutely perfect day.
haraamis: (VK - Kaname)
... in which I realize that it's been way too long since the last entry. again. *sweatdrop*

clicky click for a bunch of bullet points )
Have a wonderful day, everyone!

haraamis: (santafied)
Oh man, it just keeps snowing and snowing and snowing... there's about a foot of snow outside my window, and it doesn't look like it's gonna stop any time soon.

White Christmas? There's hope, there's hope.... ^_____^

so, that update last night didn't happen...obviously. :P

There was so much I wanted to do last night, really, and NONE of it happened. ^^;

I came home from school, made and ate dinner, puttered around the kitchen for a bit and then decided I needed a hot bath. took said bath, put on my jammies and called the boy, as promised earlier.

Embarassingly enough, I had to cut that phonecall short after a while because I was too tired to talk which made the conversation somewhat...difficult. *sweatdrop* He just laughed and told me to go to bed. ♥

Not quite ready to give up the fight, I tried to watch one episode of Tytania, but had to quit after about 10 minutes as I nearly fell asleep with the laptop still on my bed. So I put everything away, turned off the lights and went to sleep.

That was all before 10pm.


Week from Hell is halfway done, but I've got only one final left tomorrow. I had 2 exams on Monday and one yesterday, plus a presentation last night. Everything went reasonably well, I think, so that's quite a relief.

I'm a bit afraid of the one tomorrow, though. >.<. The lady who held the course made such a mess of things, it's not even funny. No one knows what's going on, exactly, and we haven't got a book to rely on, just her script, which is made of ppt slides that show looooooooots of pictures but rarely any explanations. *SIGH*

Oh well, it will be over soon enough.


On a happier note (because, you know, despite everything - cold, finals etc - I'm still feeling happy and christmassy XD)

THANK YOU, [livejournal.com profile] merith, [livejournal.com profile] lil_1337, [livejournal.com profile] dysis, and [livejournal.com profile] gundamnook for the Christmas cards! ^____^ *snugsnug*

Also, [livejournal.com profile] nee_chan, I sent the Christmas presents for everyone to your parents' place (in one package), so please hand them out to the others when the package gets there? Also, this is A Mission! I'm not sure if it's gonna be there in time for Christmas, but I'm pretty sure it'll make it before New Years, so you are responsible that everyone gets his or her present while we still have the year 2008! :P


And since I haven't posted anything fangirlish in so long: I'm totally and utterly in love with the current Naruto opening (Closer) and the Bleach ending (Hitohira no hanabira) ♥♥♥!

I'm also very much looking forward to catching up with anime things - the only shows I'm up to date with are Skip Beat and Bleach. ^^,


Last (but not least): YULETIDE!

I'm looking for someone who would be willing to beta my yuletide fic for grammar and general formal things on the 20th. I'll probably finish it sometime late on the 19th or early 20th (my time!). Upload deadline is 9:00 pm Eastern US time, so it would have to be before that. ^^;
Volunteers? Please?
