Wow, still catching up. Yesterday, I went through my flist since last Thursday - almost 900 entries! o.O Wow! I'm also catching up on my shows and it's weird to watch an episode from last week and then there's already a new one! Still haven't even seen Supernatural or The Vampire Diaries! My to-do list got very long, but I'm working my way through it. Slow but steady. ;)

I think I'll split RL and fandom related things. There's a lot. A. Lot. Let's get started.


Day 18 - A book that disappointed you

Leah Cohn - Der Kuss des Morgenlichts (Morninglight Kiss). It's about a girl who falls in love with an angel, they have a child and this child might also have the powers of the angels and it depends on who raises her, the good ones or the bad ones.
It sounded good when I bought the book and I love the cover, but in the end, it wasn't really that great, and it ends with the knowledge that there'll be a sequel, which I wouldn't have needed to be honest.

Day 19 - Favorite book turned into a movie

The Twilight series, P.S. I love you and maybe even the Nora Roberts movies. Actually, they aren't that bad. ;)

Day 20 - Favorite romance book

Nicholas Sparks - The Notebook

Day 21 - Favorite book from your childhood

Die kleine Hexe (The little witch) by Otfried Preußler. I still have that *somewhere*. Really want to find it again.

Day 22 - Favorite book you own

Jim Beaver - Life's That Way. Also because it's signed now. :)

Day 23 - A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven't

Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoi. I have that one in my shelf for like 10 years but haven't read it yet. o.O

Day 24 - A book that you wish more people would’ve read

Hm, don't know how many people have read the books by Ethan Hawke (yes, the actor) but I haven't really noticed anyone talking about it. But they're really good! ;)

Day 25 - A character who you can relate to the most

Maybe Bella from the Twilight series or Sookie Stackhouse, because they're both shy and insecure first (which I (still) am), but they grow into adult women (eventually) (which I'm still trying :P)



Day 26 - A book that changed your opinion about something
Day 27 - The most surprising plot twist or ending
Day 28 - Favorite title
Day 29 - A book everyone hated but you liked
Day 30 - Your favorite book of all time


On Saturday, it was my parent's wedding anniversary - 40 years! :)


So, when deviltrap arrived on Friday, we made the impossible possible - we joined two holidays. My birthday and Christmas. *g* First, I was banned from my room and deviltrap decorated it with balloons and a Happy Birthday banner, there was sparkling wine and muffins, decorated with two candles, 2-6. ;) That was so very sweet! <3 And then I FINALLY gave her the long lost Christmas gift that I had ordered from the US. And now I can tell you what it is - an I WUV HUGZ shirt. *g* Of course I also got myself one, which I'm wearing at the moment. haha

In the afternoon, we went to town to my favorite bookstore and I spent over 50 Euros on books. Thank god I had a gift certificate for 40 of those. haha I wouldn't have bought so much but with the gift certificate... *g* In the evening, we had dinner. First sushi and it was deviltrap'sfirst sushi ever. I think it wasn't that bad for her. But we were still hungry, so we ordered something else, too. She had a tuna pizza and I ordered noodles with curry-orange sauce. It was hot and spicy, but good.

The next day, we went to the shopping center where I again bought some books, because I also got another gift certificate from deviltrap (don't you just love birthdays? LOL). There, I finally bought the Stieg Larsson Millenium trilogy. I think I got 10 new books that weekend. :D
That evening, we went to town again and met up with some of my friends to celebrate a bit more, which was very nice, I have to say. Finally, I could bring all my friends together and have drinks with them. Finally. That really was difficult in the past.

At nights, we played Uno and Monopoly. Finally, I found someone to play that with me. *g*

deviltrap left on Sunday again and I had to work that night. I was slightly tired first and I think I even napped for like half an hour but then it was as if someone turned a switch and I was wide awake.

So, that was my weekend and it was GREAT! :D


Two days ago, I apparently slept through an earthquake. Huh. o.O My brother said that he heard and felt a rumble but I didn't notice anything. I always miss the cool stuff.

I guess that was it already with the non-fandom stuff... Will come back with what I've watched etc. etc. Probably tomorrow, as it's almost time for me to get ready for work again. Only tonight and tomorrow and then it's already the weekend for me. Yay!

Last but definitely not least - JARED IS COMING TO ASYLUM EUROPE 2 IN MAY! OMFG!!!!! \o/
