- Dentist appointment tomorrow. *ugh* Definitely not keen on that. :-/

- I still have no placement for an internship... This sucks big time, especially as the internship period is actually supposed to start on 3 September already, which only gives me 2 more weeks now to find something... *is deperate* Seems pretty unlikely, when so far I wasn't able to find anything in the past 8-9 weeks, right? *facepalm* I have one more interview on Monday (please keep your fingers crossed again!! pleeeaaase), but if that doesn't work out, frankly I don't know what to do... :-/

- On the weekend I finally managed to "update" my framed stagedoor photos. :D Had to take 6 older pictures out to fit 3 of the new London ones in and it was really hard to arrange them so they all would fit into the frame... ;-) It seriously took me an hour or so. o_o *lol* But I'm quite happy with the result now. :-)

(Sorry for picture quality here, especially in the bottom right area... Things and lights keep reflecting on the surface, so it's pretty hard to take a somewhat decent photo. ;-) *g*)

In the pictures (from left to right/ top to bottom, sort of *lol*): Michael Ball, Ben Mansfield, Philip Quast (yep, he's allowed to be in there twice <3), Reece Shearsmith, Simon Bowman, Norm Lewis, Killian Donnelly, Kasper Holmboe, Matt Rawle, Roger Allam, Veit Schäfermeier, Pia Douwes, Fredrik Wickerts, Thomas Borchert, Jörn Linnenbröker, Jerzy Jeszke, Aleks di Capri, Jens Janke, Felix Martin, Norbert Kohler and Olegg Vynnyk. Well, and myself, obviously, on some of them. ;D Some of the pictures are also autographed, but it doesn't show here too well...
 
This is what the frame looked like before btw, if you're interested. ;-) click

- Next week I'm gonna watch Sister Act again. *yay* Sadly the musical is leaving Hamburg on 26 August, so I had to take this as last oppurtunity... Already seen it once last year in July and enjoyed it so very much!! :D It's so much fun and many of the songs are really catchy. *g* Hope I'm as lucky with the cast as I was the last time. :-)

- Also, if everything goes according to plan (and my boss does actually remember that I want that day off... *rolleyes*) I'm going to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict, [livejournal.com profile] maggi137 and [livejournal.com profile] vesperdavid in Hamburg on Saturday the 25th. Really looking forward to that! :-)
luinalda: (POTO25 - Raoul smile)
...that make you happy.


Good thing no. 1 & 2:

Yesterday I met up with [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict in Hamburg. :-) Our third encounter. *g*
We went to Starbucks where we had a nice cup of coffee and, sitting in comfy armchairs at the window, chatted mainly about musicals/theatre, London/travelling and some fandoms. I had a very nice time. :-) Definitely would like to do this again sometime! Maybe in late spring when there's a chance of sitting outside in the sun or taking a nice walk? :-)

And this is what she brought me from her last London trip:



Autographs from Hadley Fraser and Ramin Karimloo. <3<3 *squeeeee* So. Much. Love!!!
Thank you so, so much for this, dear!! :-) *big hug* You can't imagine how happy this makes me. <3

Have found a good place for it now, too. :-)



BTW, did I already mention that, as I will be in London in mid-July, OF COURSE Hadley is leaving Les Mis in June... *facepalm* *cries* Sometimes I really think God hates me and doesn't want me to see my favourite people live on stage. :p FML. *lol*
Please, let's just all pray that at least I will be able to get a Sweeney Todd ticket and Michael Ball is actually playing then!! Pretty please? Thanks. :D


Good thing no. 3:

My parents picked up my "Game Of Thrones" BD box from the post office for me today. \o/ *yay*



The box looks really great! <3 Beautiful digipak with a little booklet that includes an episode guide, main characters overview, a map and a list of special features. And the bonus "photo book" is quite nice too (although nothing you would absolutely necessarily need I guess).
As I finished reading the first ASOIAF book last weekend I can finally start watching the TV series. \o/ (Yep, have not seen anything of it until now, although I would've had the opportunity to. Shame on me. :p) Sooo looking forward to it!!! *yeah* Starting later this evening with episode 1. :-)

Yay!

Look what finally got here yesterday. \o/ *squeeee*



<3<3 So I can start watching series 2 at last, hopefully this evening. :-)

Also, my RDJ CD arrived today. *yay*




In other news: I'm going to start a 9-month further education as "Technical writer" in Hamburg this Friday. Wooo! On the one hand I'm really, really excited about it as it sounds very interesting and good. :-) On the other hand it'll quite probably be the most stressful time of my life so far... O_O Classes are from Monday to Friday, and I will have to get up at about 4.30 a.m. each morning to catch the 6.20 a.m. train to Hamburg. Also I won't be home until 7.15/7.30 p.m. except Fridays when classes end a bit earlier (home around 3.15/3.30 p.m. then)... *blergh* And there aren't gonna be any real holidays either except 1 (!) single week in July and the few public holidays we have this year. :-( *sighs*  BUT I hope it'll be all worth it and considerably raise my chances to find a proper job once I'm finished. Wish me luck! ;-)
luinalda: (Sherlock - dear diary)
First of all, so I don't forget: a Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] dunkle_feuer!!
I hope you had a nice day. :-)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yesterday I spent the whole day in Hamburg. Had a very good time. :-)
My original plan was to walk around a bit and take lots of pictures, but again I ended up mostly in the shopping areas... :p Didn't want to take pictures of the same things as the last time(s) either, so I only took about 15-20 pics in the end, and most of them not even of interest to anyone else but me. *g*

Read more + some pics )
luinalda: (Les Mis - Enjolras (Killian))
- So, yesterday it was time for our visit to the Rocky Horror Show in Hamburg. And it was just So. Much. Fun!!! :D The audience participation was just awesome! During the rain scene I actually thought that they had set of the sprinkler system (or maybe they had, who knows *g*), because it felt even more wet than the rain outside. *lol* The toilet paper and confetti throwing was great too. *gg* And I think everybody was on their feet during "Time Warp". :-)

I had hoped to see Rob Fowler as Frank 'N' Furter, but sadly he wasn't playing (apparently he had just been on holiday) and we had his cover, Matthew McKenna, instead. But Matthew was really great (and quite cute *ahem*)! As a matter of fact, the whole cast was very good. :-)

I felt a bit sorry for Sky Du Mont, who was the narrator, though. There were a couple of idiots people who yelled things like "Boring!" and "Get lost!" everytime he got on stage to do his thing... Ok, it probably really isn't the most interesting part of the show, but the narrator is still part of the show and movie - so get over it! But I don't think Sky was bothered too much by it anyway and he also had one or two good repartees ("You only have to listen to it once, but I have to do this every day." *gg*). ;-)

The Deutsches Schauspielhaus is really beautiful, btw. :-)
some theatre pics )

- It was back to school today. Six weeks of holiday just isn't long enough, is it? :p I really had to force myself out of bed this morning. *sighs* But the first day wasn't actually that bad.

- I should finish season 2 of Warehouse 13 tonight (I only have episode 2x12 and the Christmas one left). *yeah* And then I can start catching up on season 3. :D I'm really very much in love with the show by now. <3

- It's my cat's 1st birthday in exactly one week. \o/ Just sayin'.
luinalda: (Snoopy & Woodstock)
Just wanted to wish [livejournal.com profile] maggi137 a very (and teeny bit belated *g*) Happy Birthday!!! *hugs* I hope you're having a fantastic time in London! :-)



Also, thank you [livejournal.com profile] caesaria and [livejournal.com profile] baka_yu for the v-gifts! :D

I had a great time in Hamburg today, btw. :-) I'll make a slightly more detailed entry about it tomorrow...
luinalda: (London - telephone box)
Well, maybe this doesn't exactly count as "holidays" as I've never been to Hamburg for more than one day in a row... ;-) *g* But I've been there countless times for shopping, meeting friends and visiting musicals/concerts/whatever.
I really like the city a lot. :-)

- Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] kerry_louise!! Have a good one and enjoy your day! :-)

- I have a few more leftover Hamburg pics from Wednesday I thought I might share as well. *g*
Click me! )



- I'll be heading to the city later to look for some new clothes. Haven't done that in quite a while and I still have a bit of birthday money to get rid of spend. :D

luinalda: (Hugh Laurie)
So, Hugh Laurie concert in Hamburg last night. :D And it was awesome!!! \o/ Not that I expected anything else, of course. *gg* I'm quite bad at writing reports, but I'll give it a go. ;-) *lol*

We met up at about 5 p.m. (we were 6 people) and then went to a Thai restaurant on the Reeperbahn. I have no idea anymore what my dish was called (something with chicken *g*), but it was very yummy. :-) We ate and talked and had a nice time. At about 7.30 p.m. we left the restaurant and went over to the concert's location, the Café Keese. Doors had already opened at 7 p.m. and there was still quite a long queue waiting outside. But we got inside comparatively quick nevertheless.
The Café Keese isn't that big really and it was already very crowded. We made our way to about the middle of the room on the right side and stayed there. The stage was pretty low and frankly we couldn't really see anything. A bit of the microphone at the most, if we were lucky. ;-) *g* And it was really hot!
At 8 p.m. the band came on stage and started playing, and at some point Hugh must've joined them because the crowd started cheering some more. *gg* I didn't really see him at first, but caught some glimpses eventually.
He greeted us with some German sentences. :D Don't remember them exactly, but something along the lines of "Guten Abend" (good evening), "Willkommen..." (welcome) and "Mädchen und Jungen" (girls and boys). He also said then that that was actually all he knew in German. *g* And asked how many of us understood English. :D  

My view actually got much better after about half of the concert and I could see Hugh quite without problems when he was standing at the microphone in the middle of the stage. *yay* I still had some problems when he was sitting at the piano on the left side, but at least I could see most of his head for most of the time then. *lol*

At the end, they got off the stage and when they came back on once more, Hugh said that that was actually all they had but they could just start all over again. *lol* We sure wouldn't have minded. :D They played one more song and then it was over (~ 9.30 p.m.).

I really enjoyed the music (even though I don't normally listen to Blues tbh) and I'm definitely going to buy his album! :-) [BTW, can somebody tell me why the German Amazon lists it twice? Both with different prices and release dates? *is confused*]. I think I liked 3 songs in particular. One of them was "Let them talk". I don't remember the titles of the other ones, so I'll have to try and find them on the CD. *g*

I thought the audience was in a pretty good mood too. :-) Altogether nice atmosphere.
Several people wore House shirts (who'd have thought, right? :p) which I didn't really find that appropriate, but ok... There was also one guy in a complete House outfit. He was standing a bit in front of me during the concert and kept waving his cane around every now and then, and afterwards, when we were still standing outside talking, we saw him "limping by" (seriously!). *lol* IDEK.

Today I was in Hamburg for shopping. In the Mönckebergstrasse I ran into the Gay Pride parade. As I never saw anything like that before I stopped and watched for an hour until the last car had passed by. It was really interesting how some of the people were dressed up. *gg* All were in good mood and also the weather was great, with lots of sunshine and really warm. :-)

Heute war ich in Hamburg, um etwas zu shoppen. Dabei bin ich in der Mönckebergstrasse bei Saturn auf die Christopher Street Day Parade gestossen. Da ich sowas noch nie miterlebt hatte, habe ich mir das ganze mal eine Stunde angeguckt bis der letzte Wagen durch war. War wirklich sehr interessant, was da zum Teil für Leute rumlaufen bzw. vor allem wie diese sich "verkleidet" haben.*gg* Die Stimmung war sehr gut und auch das Wetter war super, mit strahlendem Sonnenschein und sehr warm. :-)
