Eurofurence 17 - "It's OK, I'm a lesbian too" [30 Aug 2011|01:25pm]
[ mood | happy ]

I didn't get around to typing this up when I had just returned from my trip to Germany, as I realised I hadn't been socialising as much as I should.
So ontop of the things that had been piling up over the last two weeks, and the terribly mess I left my flat in, I've been doing my best to give people the attention they deserve.

For my first week in Germany I went hiking with Richard and two other guys, in a very pretty area around Wippra. Wooded hills everywhere, little brooks, etc.
We went to a dam early on, a lake formed behind it. Where we saw a turtle. We wondered how it would survive winter.
Spent a lot of time hiking. Though not as much as I feel we should have .. but .. well, most of us were horribly out of shape. :P
One time Richard and I and Indie his german sheppard were about an hour and a half along, when it started raining a lot. Which may sound like a bad thing, but it kept all the bugs away, and after briefly hiding under an old and very large tree we decided to just keep walking.
I was dumb and had put my clothes on again, as I was getting cold before the rain started, and Richard was smart and hiked until it stopped raining, then some more so he dried up again. Oh, I didn't mention; nude hiking. Surprisingly relaxing and just plain nice. Except for the bugs.

The cabin wasn't much to write home about, but it had limited amount of hot water.
After seven days, Watani dropped me off at a little town where I caught a train to Eurofurence.

An hour and a half later, I arrived in Magdeburg, and two minutes later I was on-site.
Great location! Very nice atmosphere.
I loved the Piano Bar, and Naut introduced me to Pink Connections. It might be a very gay looking cocktail, but damn is it tasty!

It was great catching up with old friends and acquaintances and I enjoyed meeting plenty of new people as well. Though only some of their names stuck around in my brain. :P
( Love you, dutch guy with awesome english accent on whose lap I was briefly drunkenly stretched out on! I'd love to learn your name. :P )
I've even met someone whom I hadn't spoken to for 10 to 12 years. And after a while I remembered his name and some tiny fragments of what we used to talk about. Derp!

Did some things I shouldn't have, did some things I should have done ages ago, refrained from doing some things and I'm glad for it, refrained from doing other things and regretted it.
Over all, it was a blast! My thanks to everyone who's made my time at EF just that much more enjoyable by hanging out / talking / whatevering with me. :)

Some random quotes from EF:
"Open the door. Get on the floor. Everyone walk the dinosaur."
"Need I remind you, that you're lesbian. *shifts gaze* And that you're gay?"

P.S. The discoball was awesome, and my favourite prop was the 5-panel suspended dragon, and the wobbly warm light that was on that. *stares and sighs wistfully*

[ mood | wondering where you are ]

You Are a Lynx

You are a quiet observer of the world around you. Your wisdom comes from listening carefully.

You've always been extra sensitive and aware. And it's made it difficult for you to fit in.

You see past people's outward personas. You are able to penetrate a stranger's soul.

What you've learned about people is both beautiful and ugly. And you keep these secrets to yourself.

So shortly after posting that last LJ post I caught that horrible flu that was going around I just plain lost three days somewhere along the way. x.x
I'm still a bit coughy but mostly better.

Just in time for the family xmas dinner!
So now I am stuff and very drunk!
Will respond to your kind messages in the morning for that very reason. *hic!* :D

Ow [15 Dec 2008|10:21am]
[ mood | numb ]

I heard three or four loud thumps followed by the sound of shattering glass and someone yelling for help in the flat's hallway, Saturday evening.
I didn't really think, but just grabbed the nearest heavy object, which happened to be a a rather hefty metal bar from my vacuum cleaner and ran downstairs without even putting my shoes on.

I found the girl who lives on the ground-floor and her mum being pushed around and hit by the girl's ex-boyfriend and his cousin, after they had kicked the hallway door and their house door in.

There was a lot of yelling and pushing when I came to their aid, but after trying to defuse the situation, they both just turned on me and proceeded to beat the stuffings out of me.
I blocked a few punches and hit the ex-boyfriend person on the head with the bar once, really hard, but it didn't slow him down much and I went down fast.

Overall, while the women were happy someone actually responded to their cries for help, I'd have to put it down as a fail.

Cut lips, cracked nose-bone, bunch of bruises and small cuts (from glass) and a bunch of lumps on my head was all I got for my trouble.

The guys got away, but were arrested five minutes later.
Pressed charges, busy finding out how much money I can get from the bastards.

Bedtime story for Blackferret [12 Mar 2008|10:19pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Once upon a time there was a ferret Princess.
She lived in an island Kingdom and had everything her heart desired, save perhaps the ability to leave the island.
The ferret-kingdom's was in a funny state of affairs, largely due to the ferret species' overriding curiosity of what would happen if you smash things into other things just -so-.
This explains why the ferret kingdom's navy was such a huge failure, and why leaving the island was a tad problematic for the Princess, for sooner rather than later a rather interesting looking jagged rock or cliff would present itself to the short-lived captains of the nation.

Today was the day of the Festival of the Moon. The Moon is big and shiny, so naturally everyone wanted to have it. And hide it away behind something. Or possibly smash it into something else, just to see what would happen.
But it wasn't night quite yet; the Kingdom was abuzz with activity and chatter as the people prepared for the festival.
While the Princess did love the Moon, because it -is- awfully shiny, she craved one thing more than the Moon.
Which was to leave the island, and see the big wide world. For if it was anything near as shiny as the sparkling waves around the island, it would be a grand place indeed!
Her father, King Dooker the Third was a sensible old ferret, and naturally forebode her to board the regular ships that left the harbour, which headed for almost certain doom.
Still, he hoped that one day a ship would return, with news of other islands, which could be colonized. Or smashed into.

When Dusk finally approached, the incoming Tide that danced around her toes as she walked along the beach also welcomed the Moon, and as she gazed up at it, it gazed back, realising her plight.
And just then a whisper on the wind was carried to her ears - "Where-ever my reflection graces the Sea, you shall be able to walk." it said.
The ferret Princess gazed around, thinking it to be an other mean trick her brother was playing on her.
But when she carefully lifted a slender foot and placed it on the Moon's reflection she found the water to be solid and smooth, though still just as cold.

By the time the Festival of the Moon was in full motion, the Princess had gather the two handsomest lads she could find, along with some warm slippers and all the food and water the lads could carry.
For it would be unseemly for a Princess to carry things on her back.

And off they set, walking on the Moon, crossing the Sea.

...and thus ends the tale of how ferret-kind finally spread all over the world, testing the elasticity of all things fragile.

(By Robert Grinwis, 12 March 2008)

ferretsworld thought it was sweet enough to draw some pictures of. If you feel the same, I would love to see them. :)

[ mood | discontent ]

I've decided that I do not like weather-forecasts.
Instead of being caught in the rain, I'll end up knowing in advance that I'll be caught in the rain.

Also, my two year old videocard that had been glitching for a while finally went to sow the Elysian fields.
Luckily it was in it's warranty period still, so I got a 125 euro refund on it.
So now I have a nifty ASUS EN8800 GTS [more abbreviations go here] which makes games be pretty and fast.
Unfortunately, videocards now require lots of amperage on the 12 volt line, so I had to buy a horrendously expensive powerunit to go with it. :(

I miss Kimba.

Hello Livejournal!
Long time no see.

Since last time we spoke, I have gotten a job as a bicycle messenger, which I quite like.
The thing is, part of one of my regular routes takes me through the neighbourhood where I grew up.
Nostalgia abound!
While most of the place still looks the same, there was one change which saddened me - they removed The Sandbox and replaced it with some climby contraption.
Me, my brother and the childhood friend we still see from time to time have a lot of memories of that sandbox. Ah well. Things change, right, Livejournal?

I noticed that the house I was born in was for sale, aswell. I decided not to buy the piece of crap appartment.

[ mood | dirty ]

Went to see the Blue Man Group, who were simply fabulous. But, I suspect, not as fabulous as they could be.
I planned to be there an hour ahead of time, but thanks, Nederlandse Spoorwegen - I arrived there exactly on time, only due to my running quite a distance. x.x
All in all, it was worth it, and a lot of fun.

Dream bought me Twilight Pricess for my shiney new Wii, which I bought on an impulse.
I was looking for a Gamecube game which is hard to find, and when the shopkeeper said he didn't have any Gamecube games anymore, and went on to say that "it's all Wii now" I thought I was clever when I countered with "Ah, but I'm sure you don't have any.".
Turns out I wasn't, and he had just gotten in two, three minutes before (and had already sold the other).

Tristan and JK will be dropping by in a few hours. Saterday evening we'll drop by Kimba's.

Um. After the weekend I'll be heading to Switzerland.
Gotta run now - got some tidying to do before Tristan and JK get here.

Summary [25 Jan 2007|06:32pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Yey, Sushi! -So- good. *nom nom nom*

I've eaten the stuff far too often in the last few months. Too often for my wallet, but not often enough for my belly. :P

Um. Spent the first day of xmas with JK; a nice and quiet day filled with cuddles and stuff.
The second day of xmas I spent with my mom, who is lovely.

Newyears I spent in Kettwig, Germany. There was a furry gathering there, which was just plain awesome.
I was -so- drunk. And people took pictures of it. :P

Januari's been a month of ups and downs, emotionally. Some of the influences are beyond my control, while others have me chastising myself for presuming too much, or for just being too sensitive.
Meh. What can you do, eh?

I registered for EF and MMC, and sent money their way. In March I'll go see the Blue Man Group, somewhere in late Feb or early March I'll go visit Drakkor, and bother Shin a little while she's there. In the middle of Feb Bloodi, her brother and Morier will be visiting.
Note to self : clean up the pigsty of an apartment before they get here.

This weekend Cranphin and I are organizing a little sauna gettogether. It's bloody cold, so it'd be a nice change. :]

Weekend report [25 Dec 2006|12:05am]
[ mood | happy ]

Dear Livejournal,

I went indoor snowboarding with Kaelin and Watani on Friday.
Apparently I did really well for a first-timer. First time off the medium slope actually went without the falling of the down.
The second time, I got overconfident, and fell on my arse. And got laughed at by a little kid. XD

I enthusiastically took two hours, as my friends were doing the same. After one hour I was out of breath, sweating like a pig, and so tired that my performance actually went down.
Read : Over time, I started falling down more often, rather than less often.

Very tiring, very fun.
My arms hurt now, from the ski-drag-lifts.

Afterwards, I went over to Kimba/Kensaro/Laha's, where I Wii-bowled a 256, while so stoned I couldn't do much more than giggle, and continue to be surprised that "Hey! I'm winning!".
My attentionspan was right out of the window.

Will post the lovely xmas card that Bloodhound Omega drew for me in a few days, for those who haven't recieved one, or are just curious about it.
I -again- underestimated what could go wrong, with printing companies.
But atleast I've found a reliable one, now.
Next year I'll have them printed in the end of November, to prevent mishaps like this. ;)

Will be spending newyears in Kettwig, where there's some gathering in a basement under a supermarket, which is apparently lots of fun.
I've been told there'll be Baileys, so I aim to get smashed and have lots of fun.
DragonTiger's owes me a dance. :3

Enjoy Xmas and newyears. <3

Xmas cards! [14 Dec 2006|06:08pm]
[ mood | busy ]

Right. Busy fox!
I've reinstalled my OS on my new harddisk recently, so I don't have all my chat programs installed yet. Hence my not being on, at all!

Sooo .. I wanted to save myself some work by asking all my friends who are on here to leave their address details, if they want a xmas card.

P.S. I'm having 50 printed, if I run out .. please don't be offended! :]

Grrrrr! [24 Nov 2006|07:17pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

Telemarketeers :
- No, I'm not interested in 'cheaper mortage'.
- No, I do not have loans, so you can't offer me 'cheaper loans'.
- Cheaper cable, you say? No thanks, I don't watch TV.

Door to door salespeople:
- Gosh, really? Cheaper electricity / cable / insurance? All I need to do is sign this ... hey? Why do you have a five year contract with my name on it?

Door to door religion salespeople:
- Sorry, I don't feel like worshipping figments today.

You can't stop the rock
