I'd be lost without my blogger.

One more week to go. I can do it! I can do it! I can’t. I just want to sleep, for crying out loud!!! Yesterday, I hardly managed to get up before 6:30 pm – half an hour before my shift starts! My brother’s like, “You sleep for 14 hours and are still tired?!” and I’m like, “I’m not even at home for 14 hours!”

Oh but then, my free days next week are gonna include wine and food and food, internet, and sleep, sleep, sleep!!!

Last night at work was pure hell! I can’t stand that beeping sound that the alarm system makes any more! The alarm system of a client was all wonky and kept sending error messages to our system – everytime with that beeping sound, an alarm for me. But oh no, it didn’t just do that a couple of times, no, it did that since 4 that afternoon and kept doing it through the whole night – Every. Few. Minutes. I think the longest it didn’t beep was two minutes. And the shortest break was 23 seconds. By 2 am, I was close to just throwing the whole goddamn thing out. Imagine, every minute for 12 hours, that’s 720 error messages!! And I have to confirm each and every one with four clicks with the mouse. That’s 2,880 mouse clicks!! Not included the other messages I get every night, as well! O.O

My colleague who had been here until I came at 7 pm, had a headache already (When she went home, she was like, "I'm so sorry for you!"), and had tried to contact the technician, who apparently was off already and had turned his cell phone off. Great. At least he had a quiet night. I hope it’s fixed when I get back tonight or war is on.

Despite that annoying sound, I could concentrate on reading nevertheless, I’m surprised. I have finally finished “The Da Vinci Code”, which I thought wasn’t as bad as people had told me before. Then, in only two nights, I’ve read “The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud” by Ben Sherwood, and JFC! I was bawling my eyes out!!! I have cried when reading a good book before, but this was insane! My shirt was wet from tears and the table was a little flooded, too! Crazy! I loved the story! Gotta watch the movie asap. It’s gonna kill me. And yesterday, I started to read “Shiver” by Maggie Stiefvater.


For those of you who haven’t read it on my journal before, because I’m sure I’ve mentioned it… When I was little, I had this weird dream, that I kept having throughout the years over and over again. In the dream, I’m at my old elementary school and I’m with a woman that I don’t recognize. It’s night, and suddenly, there’s a pack of wolves and they attack me. I fall to the ground, they bite and tear at me, but it doesn’t really hurt. I look up to the woman and beg her to help me, but she just stands there and says then, “I can’t. It’s your fate.”

And now look at the very first sentences of “Shiver”.

I remember lying in the snow, a small red spot of warm going cold, surrounded by wolves. They were licking me, biting me, worrying at my body, pressing in. Their huddled bodies blocked what little heat the sun offered. Ice glistened on their ruffs and their breath made opaque shapes that hung in the air around us. The musky smell of their coats made me think of wet dog and burning leaves, pleasant and terrifying. Their tongues melted my skin; their careless teeth ripped at my sleeves and snagged through my hair, pushed against my collarbone, the pulse at my neck.

Uhm, yep! Exactly! Creepy, but fascinating.

The book reminds me a bit of the Twilight series, or this other book that I’ve read at the beginning of the year, “The Forest of Hands and Teeth”. And every second word from me is “Aw!” <3

When Sam is reading to Grace:

Then i felt his breath on my ear as he said, voice barely audible, “’I am alone in the world, and yet not alone enough to make each hour holy. I am lowly in this world, and yet not enough for me to be just a thing to you, dark and shrewd. I want my will and I want to go with my will as it moves towards action.’” He paused, long, the only sound his breath, a little ragged, before he went on, “’And I want, in those silent, somehow faltering times, to be with someone who knows, or else alone. I want to reflect everything about you, and I never want to be too blind or too ancient to keep your profound wavering image with me. I want to unfold. I don’t want to be folded anywhere, because there, where I’m folded, I am a lie.’”
I turned my face towards his voice, eyes still fast shut, and he put his mouth on mine. I felt his lips pull from mine slightly, just for a moment, and heard the rustle of the book laid gently on the floor, and then he wrapped his arms around me.
His lips tasted cool and sharp, peppermint, winter, but his hands, soft on the back of my neck, promised long days and summer and for ever.


**sighs forever** Where’s my “wolf”?…



It’s my hottie vamp from The Gates! Luke Mably! I like! **g** I think the show’s makers are the ones from “Off the Map”. I liked Combat Hospital so far, will keep watching for now.



Baby!Mozzie – LMAO! But oh so cute!

Mozart = Mozzie **g**

Peter: Minor? How long ago did this happen?
Mozzie: When I was twelve…?
Neal: You were twelve when you stole 500 grand from the Detroit mob?!
Mozzie: Gifted child.



Lester and his new Jaguar – “Now it’s personal.” LOL Or him wanting to be out in the field, helping the others. “Maybe something cuddly and vegetarian.” haha And I love his scenes with Jess!

But OMG Connor!!! I have got to watch the next episode asap!


TV watched: The Good Wife 1.21 – 1.23 [Bad cliffhanger! Bad! Gah!], Covert Affairs 2.03 – Band and Blame [Every episode with shirtless Auggie is a good episode. :P] and 2.04 – All the right friends, Rookie Blue 2.01 – Butterflies, White Collar 3.03 – Deadline [Every episode with shirtless Neal is a good episode. :P], Warehouse 13 1.01+1.02 [both rewatches] and 1.03 – 1.06

P.S.: Thanks for the vgift toodelicious. <3 to you too!

I don't think I could stand that for that long. We have a cooler at work that makes a high pitched squeal when it kicks on to cool down and I want to shoot it sooo bad when it does that lol.

Davinci code was a fairly decent read in my opinion...much better than the movie anyway.

It really was horrible. Yesterday, my colleague told me that it went on for another 7 hours! Until the technician finally moved his ass to fix it. Jeez!

I liked the movie, too, but so many people told me that the book was really bad, but I didn't think so.
