Wtf, universe? Isn't it bad enough it's Monday?  
So yeah, Monday - Fuck Monday - want a do-over


Got up this morning - feeling way too tired - considering I'd had my usual night's sleep. Came down to the street - and my bicycle is missing O.o

Assholes - someone. took. my. bicycle.


nevermind that I was planning on getting another one within the next half year or so, because while it was still functional - there were pieces that needed changed and it would cost me half a new bike anyway - not to mention the time it would take. So yeah, still not cool, damn it!

Walking home (takes a good 40-50 mins) I swung by the bike store where I bought the old one and splurged on a new one - which will be ready for pick up tomorrow after work. Walking home, annoyed and surfing through my tumblr watch list, the following two pictures at the top ALMOST managed to get my day back in shape. Only almost, because damn, when you live in cities like Odense and don't particularly want to waste money on bus tickets, you need a bike. I also happen to love heading out for 20km+ trips. So almost. ALMOST.


It would have had to be a completely naked Fassy to REALLY make up for the shitty day.

Hell of a fucking weekend *grumbles*  
So yeah, Saturday up until around 11.30 went fairly well - good even. Cooked the india and it was really good - if a bit watery, but I think I know what I did wrong. Still tasted superb. Will share recipe at some time this week.

Well, the evening went down the drain. My relay fried itself - and in turn took lights, router, digital tv box down with it :(

Had an above average cute electrician out this morning, he revived the relay and with that the fridge/freezer unit, but the above mentioned are beyond help. It means I'm on my Android set up as a wifi hot spot to be online - gonna call the ISP tomorrow and play dumb. No sir, it just stopped working - might be the power unit, might be the router itself. Also, my wirelesss router died, so I might hassle them about a wireless - if not, I'm gonna have to head out and get a new one - preferable ASAP. So yeah, how was your morning *grumbles*

In other news, porn sells, sex sells! I got more comments and kudos on the X-men story (the f/f, m/f, m/m one) than anything else I've put up on AO3. Apparantly the story is hot - know how some stories you can't tell yourself when you've written? This was one of them - I had no idea if it was even worth posting. Apparantly it was.

*is SO amused*  
Right, so I went and finished the Erik/Charles fic I was working on - the one that I wasn't sure I was posting? The m/m, m/f, f/f one *g* - I put it up on AO3 an hour ago - it now has 37 hits, 2 kudos and 1 comment. For a porn exercise that's not bad*laughs* especially one that had the working title on my HDD of 'porn marathon' ;)

Right, back to tidying, then getting the stuff ready for dinner - I'm trying out one of the recipes in the Indian cook book that Gary suggested I get back in the spring. I haven't had time to try any of the recipes, but for tonight I'm attempting Chiken with cocnut (Kuku Paka). Shall let everyone know how it goes - and if it's good enough, share the recipe *g*

Weekend and to-do list of doom!  
Got home a bit later than I originally expected, but it was a fab weekend ^_^*

[personal profile] nora_charles and I spent the last couple of days with [personal profile] skuf as host and what a host - yes, there was enough food *laughs* and good it was. Not to mention the fact that we watched fanvids, Chuck and Ironman2 \0/

[personal profile] kabal42 joined us twice, taking time out of his busy, busy scheduel (we're damned proud that you not only managed to join us, but you're almost done!) - but of course we missed [personal profile] exeterlinden, [personal profile] oneiriad and [personal profile] calvinahobbes, who could not make it :(

[personal profile] skuf wanted to go kayaking... which we did - and no, none of us fell in/tilted the kayaks XD - but it felt like it came close in the beginning.

And today we went to the National Gallery of Denmark - after a small trip to the Botanical Garden, where I've never been and it was good, pretty, but damned hot and humid *g* - at least inside the greenhouses.

Lunch was had at a Gourmet Burger restaurant - and it was good ^_^

And sorry, Nicci - got home a wee bit later than expected - will try to catch you tomorrow. I'm thankfully not working tomorrow *sighs happily*

Which brings us to... DUM DUM DUUUUUUUUUUUM The to-do list of doom:

* tidy bedroom
* tidy kitchen
* clean bathroom*
* tidy living room
* Have another go at the mutated Trekfic
* work on a short writing challenge to self: Write in 45 mins

(note to self, make plenty of coffee!)

* Maybe drag out an old Torchwood fic that was never finished - see if anything sparks
* Possibly consider doing an old-school Smallville fic *g* Just for the hell of it.


Now, bedtime!

Update from pollen hell  

how's it hangin'?

Can't say it's hanging well here. It's been Easter hols for the last five days - we've had time off from work from Thursday till today - and I've spent nearly half of it, near-comatose *frowns* - seriously, pollen's really being a bitch this year and it hasn't maxed out yet. It's as always worse for me when it's birch pollen rather than anything else. I react to other tree pollen, but birch is the worst due to the amount of it.

I'm not as such behind on my writing of the trekreversebang story - I've got it plotted out (on 12 A5 sheets of paper, handwritten LOL) and I'm 1500 words into it and steadily writing today - the minimum is 6K and that will NOT be a problem LOL.

It's also pure crack - and I hope it will do the image it's being written for (not to mention the brilliant artist) justice.

*looks at calendar and bounces a little*

May 11th I'm off for a week to go spend a weekend in a cabin in Western Scotland *g* - I foresee a lot of photos XD

I've also ordered tickets for the summer hols - leaving on the 27th of June and coming home again on the 15th of July *\0/*

I'll be attending the viewing of Thor 3D on Thursday (very fitting day, wouldn't you say? LOL) - And with that I'm going back to writing - but I'll leave you with a picture of Chris Hemsworth - he made a pretty George Kirk in the 2009 Trek movie - he makes a pretty decent Thor (at least Marvel version, because the real thing was a red-head damnnit!)

Now there's something you don't see often...  
I'm watching the news and there's been a big accident on the German Autobahn near Rostock - because of a sand storm. 10 dead and 100 injured. Let me tell you this, the wind is hell today and almost made me get off the bike on the way home from work. It felt like you were going forward by 3 metres and blown back by 2.5 *rubs eyes* not to mention the amount of grit that's blowing through the air.

Was a bit more worried about the sandwich-signs that the supermarket has outside - some of them were skittering along the sidewalk - and the bike-path. Pure obstacle course.

If you're in the northern part of Germany - North East especially, stay safe tonight - it seems to be heading in that direction.

confessions of a changed mind  
I just wanted to let everyone know that I've enjoyed the time we've had together here on LJ/DW/IJ, not to mention for the past decade where I've taken part in a numerous fandoms.

Long story short, I've cancelled my website subscriptions and I'm deleting my blogs later tonight. Things have happened and quite frankly, I can't keep my online life going with the stress levels I currently fight with, not to mention a change of heart.

There is no lure in online life and there is no lure in fic or vids anymore. Least of all slash. There is no appeal of sex between men anymore, so I've deleted my fic off my harddrive - finished as well as WIPs and I'll start taking fics off the archives as well. So all in all, it's been a treat knowing you all - but this will be my last entry.

pollen - stinks! *rubs eyes*

I'm already at the stage where I want to rub my face raw against the nearest rough surface :(

Yes, I'm on pills, nose spray and eye drops. I am also fed up with people, in joyful voices, asking if it isn't great that spring's here.

Spring can go f* itself *pouts* - can we skip over this - just go stright to summer and skip the bloody pollen season?

In other news LOL - going to boss' 50th b-day tomorrow, so I went and had my hair cut today (I needed it, trust me *g*)

Coloured, cut and styled. Back to plain messy finger-hair

ignore the red eyes... seriously )

In fannish waters: I'm signed up for the Trekreversebang and claiming starts on April 2nd - I wanted the current mutated fic done before that, but with the pollen eyes and nose and itching aaargh - yeah, not seeing that happening :(

Now I can only hope I can push myself through the reverse bang - of course this is done for someone else, so that will hopefully keep me going at it.

*looks at May 11th* damn, that looks like a long way to come :(

A bit of this and a little of that  
For those interested, my sister is a little better and is a rehabilitation facility where they specialize in cerebral haemorrhages and the retraining of the brain. She's still got problems with her short term memory, but her long term memory is as clear as ever.

Thanks to those of you who commented with well-wishes etc. I ♥ my flist.

I fucked up my left shoulder the other day. I had a massage therapy session on Saturday which worked wonders, but it won't go away from one session *sighs* so I occasionally down a painkiller, which isn't something I do an awful lot.

Seems we have another fannish get together in April *\0/*

I'm in Scotland in mid-May for yet another fannish get together *grins*

I have yet to order tickets for the summer hols.

I just checked my taxes and I'm due to get roughly 250 quid back at the end of March. That's never a bad thing.

I hate writing star trek fic. One little throw away comment and I spend half an hour sifting through information to figure out if what I just did is based on canon, fanon or something my brain just decided to cook up *cries* - not to mention I just passed 17.000 words and I'm maybe halfway/two thirds into the story? Spock's being a little bitch to write (he keeps finding reasons to doubt his attraction to Jim) - I could've done it from Kirk's POV which is easier for me, but it wouldn't be half the challenge, now would it? And it would give away far too much, far too early LOL - Also, I have an unhealthy amount of fun from creating Klingon names *g* and having Spock nervepinching horny Klingons (I fear my brain on pain killers - so should you!).

PS Where the hell did the weekend go?

Ups and downs  
You know, sometimes life throws you a curveball and you won't notice till it hits *sighs

I got a call the other night from my sister in law - my eldest sister is in the hospital with a cerebral haemorrhage and she's not doing too well. I know people get past it in many cases, but it doesn't make it any easier seeing another human being struggling with memories and sense of reality.

My whole weekend's packed to the brim, so I get the feeling the real fallout of this won't really hit me untill Sunday. I mean, I don't think I'll break down or anything, but I foresee a quiet Sunday night in the company of my own thoughts. I want to the hospital and it's in the same area where my mum died ten years ago - it brings back really bad memories.

On the upside, I've ordered tickets for May 11th-18th to meet up with some fannish peeps and on top of this and work riding me hard, I'm hoping at least I'll get some rest at some point.

Also, I have a little gift for you that I did while watching tonight's ep of CSI:NY - I find it easier to focus on the TV with the sketchpad in my hand XD

A bit of everything  
Not much fun feeling like you're hungover - for more than a week. I'm getting the feeling I'm, at best, coming down with a head cold that won't let go, at worst, I'm due my bout of flu (I get hit every five or so years). It makes it damned hard to get anything done, at work, at home, online *shrugs and sighs*

So, that explains my spanking new icon - I fear it may get used more than I'd like it to. Work's kicking my arse - mainly because I'm trying to get used to the new IT system at work. I'll get there, but I spend more time answering questions from co-workers than catching up on invoices and customer orders, which stinks and it's the one thing that tied me to work from 9AM to 8pm twice last week (I normally get off work around 5.30 PM). I foresee the same this week - and the bloody cold doesn't exactly make it any easier. A constant pressure on my skull, dry eyes and congestion - normally I can handle those symptoms fairly easily, but fact is, piled on top of all the other shite, I occasionally feel like curling up in a corner, rocking back and forth while making whimpering noises.

That said, I refuse to go down without a fight *snorts* - I've spent the first half of the day asleep, the afternoon was spent reading my newest comic book - I caved in December and ordered Astonishing X-men through work - roughly 670 pages and written by Joss Whedon. I regret nothing. I read half before bed last night, the other half when I finally rolled out of bed today. It's typical Whedon style - it rips your heart out and forces you to admit you're loving every step of it. Also, Cassaday's artwork is drop dead gorgeous and it doesn't hurt the format that it's a giant hardcover with dust cover and all ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I got House of M (1-8) as well, but I'm putting off reading that one - after the 670 page monster I don't think I can do it enough justice when reading it - nothing will live up to A X-men in the next couple of days - it's gonna take me a bit to digest that one. However, I've had an itch the last few days that I almost didn't recognize - it's been that long. Reading X-men comic books again, means my sketching muse is rubbing herself up against just about anything she can get close to (she's always been a very cat-behaviour kinda muse - fickle as one too).

Can't promise anything will come of it, but I am ridiculously pleased to see her again (She's always been a great de-stress muse as well - another cat like trait).

Yesterday's Headtrip cracked me up - for no other reason than I own one as well, and I've had the odd bust of 'wonder if it might work on...'


And thanks to [personal profile] nicci_mac and [personal profile] audaxfemina - the virtual otters put a smile on my face ^_^
