luinalda: (TW Owen - wtf)
I was wondering why it was so quiet around here these last few days... But I just checked a couple of your journals (of people I know that they post more or less daily) and it turns out that apparently I'm just not receiving any notifs anymore since Wednesday. *doh* Fucking great, thanks a lot LJ! With only about 2-3 hours of free time each day during the week I definitely don't have the time to check all my friends' journals individually... *rollseyes*

So I'm very sorry if I miss any important things in your lives or fandoms. :-(

Is anyone else having this problem too or am I the only one? :-( I'm gonna go check now if there's anything wrong with my settings and otherwise just pray that my notifs will come back soon. So annoying!! *glares at lj*

Well...

- As everyone keeps talking about it and says how much they love it, I now ordered books 1-4 of "A Song of Ice And Fire" on Amazon. It's a boxed set, looking thus:
I actually bought it at a local bookshop today first, but when I got home I checked Amazon and found that they sell it for nearly 9€ cheaper! So sure thing I ordered it there and I'm going to return the one I already have to the store on Friday. I only hope it's as good as everybody says it is. ;-) I haven't had a look at the Game Of Thrones TV series yet either, so I don't really know what to expect.
In any case, I have to finish my Wodehouse book first before starting with this series. Don't really have a lot of time to read at the moment... :-(

- I'm currently considering to maybe set my journal to "private" (except for memes or the like)...
luinalda: (Sherlock - dear diary)
Well, LJ finally seems to be back to normal. Hooray!! \o/

I was gonna post some more photos from during our living room renovation last week, but LJ was still quite a bit wonky at the time so I didn't... And now there's no need to anymore as the room's more or less finished (apart from a few little things like skirting boards). ;-) Also, the photo wallpaper thingy finally arrived yesterday. *yay* So as soon as we'll have that on the wall I'll take some pictures to show you. :-)


Bought some more My Blue Nose Friends stuff lately. <3 Guess I'm officially obsessed with them now. *lol*
But I can't help it, they are just too cute!!
N'awww )
Also bought another plushie on Ebay, but it's from an UK seller so it might take a couple of days longer to arrive.
Luckily I'm all out of money now, so I can't buy any more for a while... ;-) *gg*


I'm about to finish my Warehouse 13 Season 1 DVDs this evening. Just 2 more episodes to go. I really like this show a lot. :-) It's so much fun and I think I actually like all the characters (so far).
Oh, and I might have squeed a little at the sight of Mark Sheppard in episode 10, because I had totally forgotten that he was a guest star in the show. *gg* Definitely looking forward to seeing more of him in the next season. *yeah*
I'd really like to have a few Warehouse 13 icons, but I don't have any free icon space left at the moment. *boohoo* Guess I'll have to delete some old icons I don't use that often anymore eventually... *sighs* ;-)
luinalda: (Sherlock - dear diary)
Mhh, don't really have anything interesting to talk about lately...
Just a couple of small things:

- I'm currently re-doing my profile page a bit. Adding some banners and stuff, which is kinda fun. :D (If anyone of you knows any comms or journals where I can find some nice "lovebars" of shows/people I've listed, please let me know! I'm having rather some difficulties there...)

- I dreamt of one of my f-listers last night, who, of course, I've never seen in real life (well, I've only met 3 people from my f-list in person so far, so chances were high *gg*)! :D *lol* Might this be a sign that I've been hanging around LJ too much lately? :p *gg* It was only an episode of a longer dream, and while maybe a bit weird I think it was quite pleasant. I actually only remember that I promised to drive this person to the station from where she could take the train home. I also remember seeing some kind of map. Geography was a bit nuts though. *lol* With me being in Germany and her living in England it should have been necessary to cross the English Channel at some point... ;-) But apparently it wasn't because our countries were adjoined in my dream. Hahaha! Like I said, weird. :D

- I'm almost caught up with Hawaii Five-0 now. *yay* Should be able to watch the rest tonight. :-) And then season finale on Monday already! Whoah! Is there any announcement yet if the show will be renewed for another season?? I sure hope it will be!!! *all fingers crossed* Also think I should post another picspam soon. :D

I actually intent to update at least once a week, but apparently I can't even manage that... *fails*
But a miracle happened: I'm finally getting LJ notifs again! Woohoo! *lol* Getting loads of messages that were lost during these last few weeks now is a bit anoying though. Thanks, LJ. :p

A Happy St. Paddy's Day to everyone who cares for that kind of thing. :-)
Anyone here who celebrates it? I'm trying to think of some Irish/Ireland-related movies or TV shows I could watch later. Divorcing Jack, maybe? Father Ted? *ponders*
And I wore a green jumper for school today. :D No shamrocks though. *gg*

Speaking of school... We're in the middle of our 2-week test period at the moment. *eek*
Things aren't actually going too well for me. *sighs* Especially today's "Redacción de carta" (letter writing) as well as the "Specific Translation: German-English" yesterday were a complete disaster. :-( Spanish oral/interpreting today wasn't that great either...
As of now I only hope I somehow survive tomorrow (English interpreting *panics*) and the next week! All fingers crossed would be much appreciated. ;-)

Still don't have my new laptop. :-( It wouldn't boot anymore, so we had to give it back to have it checked/fixed. Hope they hurry, but it might take up to 3 weeks... Damn.


And in TV news:

The German DVD of Primeval series 4 will be released on 27 May. YAY!!! \o/ I'm really looking forward to that. :-) So I don't have to buy the UK version after all (I wouldn't have had a problem with that of course, but I already have the German releases of series 1-3, so... ;-)).

I'm halfway through Supernatural's season 5 now. There might be a slight chance for me to be all caught up before season 6 ends, after all. :D *lol*

And, after all the things I heard about it thanks to the FMM (Damn you! *lol* And I still wanted Eleven to win! *pouts*), I decided to give Community a try. ;-) So I watched the whole first season within 3 days (could have easily made that 2, but I had to at least pretend to be learning a little for my tests *lol*). I wasn't that enthusiastic about it at first, tbh. Didn't really think it was very funny either... But in the course of the season the characters have really grown on me. :-) I think my favourites are Abed, Jeff and Annie. And Troy might be up there with them soon, too. *g* But they're all great really.
And the paintball episode (1x23 "Modern Warfare") sure was awesome!! :D
Also, I just loved this scene. <3

Thank you so much for your kind birthday wishes, f-list! You're all very lovely!! <3<3

I spent a nice, quiet day with my parents and my two grannies. :-)

Btw, I'm currently not getting any LJ notifs. *rolleyes* So sorry if I miss any of your entries or comments... :-(

Thank you!!

I'm getting really pissed off about these spam comments I keep getting on random older entries! *rolleyes* It first started about 3 weeks ago and got pretty bad. Then I friends-locked the affected entries and it stopped. Which made me glad, and I thought that was it... But this week it started again! WTF?!!

So I'm thinking about changing my complete LJ to "friends only" soon... I'd prefer not to do that, but it appears to be the only way. :-(
----------------------------------------

Thank you for the v-gift, [livejournal.com profile] sam80853!! :D
----------------------------------------

Watched the pilot episode of "Mr. Sunshine" earlier. And I really liked it! :D Quite funny. *gg* Definitely will continue watching. :-)
----------------------------------------

Work tomorrow. *sighs* But it's only half a day. I'm gonna hold onto that thought. ;-) *g* And I have the next two Saturdays off! \o/

I'm thinking about updating/changing my profile page a bit. But don't really know how to go about it...
I guess I'd like to list some of my fandoms and stuff, but there are LOADS of them (and counting *g*), so I'm not sure if that would be a good idea. *lol* Or maybe put in some pics/banners. Mhh...

Any suggestions?
------------------------------

Watched 2 more Supernatural episodes, so now I'm finished with disc 1 of season 1. I'm really starting to like it. Like... a lot! :D If anyone could point me in the direction of any good comms/sites where I can find icons, it'd be much appreciated. :-)

I ordered season 2 yesterday, btw. :D So it should arrive sometime next week. *yay* I was quite tempted to order season 4 as well, but I don't really have the money at the moment (it has only been released over here last month, so it's still a bit more pricy)...
------------------------------

Going to watch the new Primeval episode in a minute. Excited! \o/
BTW, d'you all know this comm: [livejournal.com profile] beckermattslash? I think it's pretty cool. :D

I didn't sleep last night. Seriously, I didn't sleep AT ALL!! *headdesk* I was up literally all night working on my freaking beloved Chile presentation! Well, I might have been able to go to bed for 2 hours or so after I was finally finished with it, but rather didn't because I feared I wouldn't wake up again in time then... ;-) So I just kept working and then even walked to school a bit earlier than I normally do. I utterly despise giving presentations (even more so giving them in Spanish! ;-)), and sure enough I stumbled a couple of times, but somehow I made it through, thank God... My teacher even said it was good (haha, whatever gave him that idea?), so apparently it wasn't a complete disaster after all. *gg*
I am just SO glad it is finally over!! I definitely don't want to hear anything about Chile again for at least the rest of the year! :p *lol* And now I finally have time to watch loads of TV and DVD again. \o/ :D

So, after school and some additional grocery shopping on my way back, I went straight to bed at 2 p.m. and slept for 6 hours. :p Still am totally knackered, but at least I don't have the feeling anymore that I might pass out at any moment. *lol*

And, concerning this FB/Twitter crossposting crap... please DO NOT re-post any of my entries, comments or anything else from my journal elsewhere! Thank you!

Seems like once again I don't get my notifs properly... So sorry if I should miss any of your entries or comments. :-(


I'm currently on some kind of "watch everything that has Tim DeKay in it" run. *lol* :D
So today I watched Peaceful Warrior. Wow, very good movie! I highly enjoyed it. :-) Quite moving and inspiring. And I thought the robbery scene was quite funny. *gg* Wasn't always easy to understand Nick Nolte, though. ;-) He tends to mumble a bit, or maybe that's an accent or just my imagination, idk.

Btw, has anyone of you seen Carnivàle and could give me an opinion about it? It's pretty high up on my "next"-list.
;-) Looks a bit weird, but interesting...

Icon space

May. 7th, 2010 06:44 pm
luinalda: (David & Mars)
Just played around a bit with my LJ settings and rather by accident discovered something called "Userpic Package Resizing Tool". With that I changed my additional icon space from 1 package to 2 packages, which expires in August now instead of November. Could even have changed it to 3 packages (with the expiry in July then), but at the moment this is fine for me. Can use 70 more icons now. \O/ YAY!!

So I'm off now to find and upload loads of new icons. Bliss! :D
