My year on IJ (for 2012)

Until such time as I have something new and entertaining to post about, have yet another meme!

Instructions: Take the first sentence you posted from every month and add the first photo you posted that same month.

For science )

The theme this year was definitely mad fandom-hopping, many obsessions and the usual amount of procrastination!

Mallory & Irvine: A Historical Mountaineering RPS Post (What? Yes! Oh God.)

I have been meaning to post more but could not really think of what, as I'm on a strictly limited allowance of Crazy Things My Cats Did posts. I have, however, recently rediscovered my love of reading (something I didn't have too much time for the past few years), so I've been devouring books like a Death Eater eating, uhm, death (or possibly treacle).

One of the things I have been reading about is climbing. I used to climb and used to love it but I've kind of grown too old and lazy to do it, and also, mountains are fucking terrifying. I mean, they're entirely awesome in every way but personally I'm done crawling all over them with a big neon-green sign reading "COME AND KILL ME" around my neck, you know?

Instead, I read about other climbers, which is great fun, very educational and very much less lethal.

So without further ado, let me present to you two mountaineering legends of the early 20th century and their Great Clandestine Gay Love Affair (As Totally Fabricated By Me):

I am probably going to hell for this (picspam-heavy) )

We had a five-hour scheduled power-out for line maintenance today - smack in the middle of the day because city council hates people who work from home, clearly. I figured I'd just keep working because well, I'd still have my computer battery and the internet, right? Until I had a duh moment because you need power for the internet :p Kept working for a while anyway, using DICTIONARIES MADE FROM BOOKS. OMG STONE AGE. When my computer battery ran out, I decided I'd use the time to do some laundry.

When I realised that I am a moron and you need power for that, I decided to do some vacuuming instead.


(I eventually went to buy groceries and was mildly pleased to discover my legs do not need to be plugged into a socket to work.)

Mini-hiatus, and CTG rocks my world

Hi, I'm not dead! (I think.) I kind of failed at the Internet thing since coming back from Germany, for various reasons - I had some RL stuff to sort out (won't bore you with the details; in essence: I need to find a pot of gold already, because I am SO over being poor), plus it's winter here and cooooooold so I've been doing my damnedest to turn into a human hedgehog, i.e. hibernate and pretend the world doesn't exist if you just curl up and squeeze your eyes shut, plus I was feeling generally maudlin and would not have been good company anyway. I know, I owe people emails/comments/tweets/other electronic signs of life. I plan to be more sociable any day now!

Also, for those of you who've been inquiring, noooooo, the fic's not dead, it just got caught up in the hiatus as well. More to come soon!

I don't really know if I'll do a trip report about Cologne, since as per usual the Not Authorised To Disclose That Information clause applies all over the place. So I will just stick to two things:

1) Ania Niedieck is one of the most adorable people I have ever met; and
2) WE MET COITAL THEFT GUY! That is probably the thing I am most excited about for the entire two weeks I spent in Cologne, lol! He and his boyfriend (who is also adorbs) joined us over coffee on one of our last days there and DUDE. He is SO NICE. And fun and smart and lovely and holy fuck, gorgeous. I love him to bits. *fangirls madly*

I don't really know how to end this so have a picture of Dr. Oliver taking drugs.

However, it doesn't consist of anything else either because I've just spent an estimated 5 hours catching up on comments and the Very Meaningful Updatey Update I meant to write is clearly not going to be happening.

Instead, consider this a placeholder and a vague promise that I will attempt to be less of a slacker in my IJ/LJ habits and, y'know, keep people in the loop about My Very Exciting Life. (I KNOW. START HOLDING YOUR BREATH NOW.)

In lieu of actual news, HAPPY NEW YEAR to all you very fine people! And because it's not like this vid has been posted in a million places yet, let's have it again: Proof that the past two years were made of magic, that Ulrike Röseberg is made of complete win, and that Dennis Grabosch rocks too hard for words:

*smooches all around*

Free time? OMG what's that??

Exciting times. We're taking an EKP break. I'm not sure I know how to do that! EKP rambling )

LotR rambling (with picspam to prove Sean Bean and Timo Hübsch are long-lost brothers) )

Fingersmith rambling (with trailerspam) )

And of course, hair talk! )

Right. Off to explore the [info]bbtp_challenge masterlist some more, scowl at my work, and oil my very rusty original-material writing skills.

*squishes the lovely f-list*

One of these days...

I swear I'm going to do an actual update. I swear I will. As per usual, it will probably start with "I AM ALIVE".

In the meantime, though, my show made my head explode today. In a good way. OMFG.

Nicht so.  )
