How could this have happened? Does Russell want everyone against him?
I have several very satisfying theories, but then I have a very bad feeling, too.
Damn writers and their wayward freedom.

right ...

mood: restlessrestless
music: Nick Drake | Things Behind the Sun

Woot for another entry.

(I mean, rly, right now, I have time like you wouldn't believe and still ...)

another sortingCollapse )

After having read DH some time ago, I'm still in a kind of stupor, trying to recover from epiloguial creepiness.
And certain other things just have to not have happened.

If fandom moves, so will I. That's that.

Angels in America

Jun. 15th, 2007 | 11:32 am
music: Colin Hay | Overkill

This morning, I realized that for the last two weeks, I had been eating pork sausage which had the use-by date 05/19/07 imprinted on top. OMG nuuuuh. But I don't think my body minds things like that very much anymore. ô.o

Then, I went to an audition for our theater company and I was soso excited, because the guy organizing everything works for a local radio station and ... I think he's quite famous down here.
And I just can't believe he practically offered me the female lead!! This is crazy. aaaaaaah *squeeish*

My Spanish still sucks, but I have to take three tests in the next four months.

At the moment, I'm once again more than crazing over all the Potter fanon and canon I can get my hands on. This is never gonna end.

stranger in a strange land

May. 8th, 2007 | 02:09 pm
music: Snow Patrol | Make this go on forever

Some things I couldn't help feeling strange about in the last few weeks:

· I will never know why people don't just stop wanting to know if it's painful / cold / a million other things not to wear shoes, though it's the 53980th time they ask
· two of my friends deduced yesterday evening that a (rather drunk) guy tried to flirt with me in calling one of them a "carrot" and the other a "sheep", while - when they asked him what kind of creature I was - I got to remain a human being in his humble opinion Ô.Ô
· I found a 2-inches-diameter-spider in my room yesterday afternoon yay
· I just realized that one of my second cousins is married, but I found out about it on the internet; not that anyone in this family would bother telling me such really unimportant news
· the longer I spend in cardiology lectures, the worse my heart seems to get
· I started learning Hungarian ... whatever the reason for that is ô.o

______________________________________

Benediction

pocket souvenirs
recollections in a bag under the mattress
you never know
one day you might recall you have forgotten

goodbye
now I walk you home
slow motion

carried off into the morning
past the traffic and the houses
like a car crash
they want to look away
steal a glance as we shuffle on

goodbye
now I walk you home
slow motion

goodbye
