So, I should have been grading papers. What I did instead was buy a medieval dress on ebay. I am not sure how that happened... In other news: My brother owns the HUGEST fucking television on the planet and I WANT ONE.

I suppose this says about me that a. I am intensely materialistic, b. my current TV is TOO SMALL (see the uncontrolable allcaps there?) and c. someone should forbid ebay and online banking because it's a danger to people like me.

And I'm not sure why nobody ever invented half-year resolutions, you know sort of like the new year ones? I definitely need some, at least to keep me entertained for the next month or so because work is boring, and apparently there are not enough fandom challenges for me to sign up in (if there are and I overlooked them, please give me a nudge).

Also, and because my telly seems to be the leitmotif of this post, there is this TV show meme that I stole from [livejournal.com profile] irrlicht74 (and tweaked to my liking):

30 things that you always wanted to know about my TV obsession )

Still flu'ish, which sucks big time since I wanted to write Radio this weekend dammit... bleh. I also planned to write meta on porn and didn't get around to do that either (sad, sad world). I did buy new shoes, did some drawing (translate that to "perving over the world's most gorgeous hands" aka Sean Bean's) and got into the first stage of planning my summer vacation (currently, signs point towards South Africa). That is at least something, right?

And since I've seen this repeatedly on my flist and liked it, MEME:

"Comment with a story I've written, and I will tell you something I knew, learned, or wondered about while writing it that didn't make it onto the page."

or as an alternative (because that meme rocked in 2007 and I had huge fun with it):

"Leave a comment to ask any of my characters, from any of my stories, any question you want, and "they" will answer you!"

I'm shamelessly stealing this from [livejournal.com profile] stormatdusk who got it from [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter because I think the idea is absolutely lovely (I slightly modified the original text):

"Writers/artists/iconners/vidders/meta-ists/picspammers, I would like you to comment with a link to a single fannish creation you have produced in fandom: fic, art, vid, batch of icons, beta, meta or even a single line from a fic. Just one piece you have created in fandom that pleases you personally.

Comment with a link, pairing or gen, a summary/description if you feel you can provide one, any possible warnings, and maybe tell me a bit about why it pleases you, too.

And then, just to totally rack up some karma points, have a scroll through the other comments - because I shall be disappointed if plenty of people don't comply with my edict - and if there's something you haven't read or seen before that looks good, click the link, and maybe leave some love.

Please do pimp this!"

So, people, I don't wanna hear any lame excuses for not doing this :)! Go comment and tell me all about your favourite piece of fannish work - even if it's not a pairing I usually read or even a fandom I'm in, or if we haven't spoken in a while - I'd love to hear all about your fav in any case. And yes, if you can't decide on one single thing, you're more than welcome to name more than one, too.

Okay, saw this on Brenda's journal first and then on some others and had waaay too much fun coming up with insane shit, so there:

If you could force me to write anything, what would it be?

(And no, I'm not seriously gonna go and write any of it. Probably.)

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] azewewish - because autumn turned grey by now and well, do I need more excuses to splatter love over you ;)?

Leave me a comment and I will reply with why I like you. If I don't know you, I'll either make something up or tell you why I like your LiveJournal. You must pay for the privilege by posting a message like this one on your LiveJournal. Repost this if you wanna :).

Yeah, I couldn't resist. It was hard to choose, and I tried to make this as vastly spreaded as possible :).

Because I have this uneasy truce with the muse (muse: WRITE, bitch! Me: Hello?! Not really time for that?! Muse: *sulks*), I am stealing this meme from, erm, someone, don't remember where I've seen it first:

Leave a comment to ask any of my characters, from any of my stories, any question you want, and "they" will answer you!

*gasp* Another meme! But this time one with at least a kind of fic writing potential behind it, probably, so I think I'm excused :).

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] the_dala

You post a topic, list, category, whatever, in my comments section.(examples: "Five books Buffy Summers has read" or "Five lies Jack Sparrow regretted telling" or "Five pieces of clothing Sean loves on Orlando" etc.) Then, in a separate post, I'll post the answers to yourTop 5 ideas, according to me. Serious or fun!

Buffy, PotC, Troy, LotR RPS, Harry Potter even - I think I'll try out every fandom you have ever heard me talking about. So go ahead and comment :).

While I’m being disgustingly slow with the whole catching-up and typing-fic issues, I couldn’t resist doing this:

Tagged by [livejournal.com profile] doylebaby

Post a list of your top five fics favourite you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

I picked from the fics I have written alone and narrowed it down to specific chapters when choosing a series.

As of March, 5th 2007 )

ETA: As of September, 5th 2008 )

Happy new year, everyone!

And because it made me giggle (snagged from [livejournal.com profile] govi20):

In 2007, afra_schatz resolves to...
Find a new iliad.
Connect with my inner fluff.
Overcome my secret fear of fps.
Become a better beanbanabloom.
Pay for my orgasms on time.
Ask my boss for a sharpe.






Get your own New Year's Resolutions:


2007, you can come now.

[livejournal.com profile] killthwight tagged me with the 6 random things meme. Which really is a good thing since I'm feeling very random indeed today:

1. I bought new bedlinen with blue strips. I feel very cool and fresh now because all my other bedclothes are either reddish or black. Blue, I find, makes me feel like I'm on holiday.

2. My first LP was David Hasselhoff's "Looking for freedom". And no, I'm not ashamed to admit that I still know the lyrics by heart.

3. I've written a university thesis in philology about BtVS "The Body".

4. While I don't wear earrings I'm quite fond of silver jewelery regarding necklaces and rings. My favourite pendand is a silver leaf of a ginkgo tree symbolising congeniality (see Goethe's poem about in (German original with English translation)) and I own a BtVS / Irish Claddagh ring which was a gift from my best friend.

5. I'm ridiculously arachnophobic. Seriously, no other animal bugs me but spiders with hairy legs have me screaming like a girl.

6. The worst movie I've ever had to watch definitely was "8 mm" with Nicholas Cage (I fucking HATE that guy). Not even Norman Reedus can make up for that, seriously.

Tagging whoever likes to do this :).

And while we're at it:

My Interests Collage! )

It amuses me immensely that apparently there are two bikers named Connor and Murphy, three dogs called "Die drei ???" and two cats named Hektor and Paris. And 800 orgasms? Okay...

Did I mention that I have Summer Holidays *g*? And yay for the first shopping trip in them. A friend and colleague of mine and I drove to Enschede today and spent seven hours in town. Now my feet hurt and I own a pretty new pair of jeans, a caramel/gold kinda pair of trousers that looks awesome with black and a black top. I frigging love shopping :).

Also, because I'm bored:

The 'Five things you didn't know about me' meme )

School started again today. We have wonderful weather in Westfalia today and wee I'm sitting in our garden typing this. Just dropping by to update with a few this and that's:

[livejournal.com profile] irrlicht74 has been so lovely to do all the work in editing another chapter of our VigBean fic "Contrasts" which you can find here
Thanks for all the work, hon! The rest of you. enjoy :).

Also, on the fic front: [livejournal.com profile] irrlicht74 and I won the Award for best kiss for our third chapter in the Banabloom "Nightclub" universe (which you can find here in case you're interested :). Thank you to all who voted and snugglehugs to my darling Irrlicht - you know how much I love this particular AU!

Regarding the final two chapters of "Sport of Kings" - I have them all planned out, I just need time to write it all down. That might take a bit though since stupid school started again. Though, I might get interesting results if I prompted my pupils with "Sean Bean / Orlando Bloom / horses / hotmensex" and let them do the writing... BUT since I'm supposed to be all proper like in school, I'll have to do it myself and just wanted you all to know that I will DEFINITELY finish it asap, cuz I love this little story.

Speaking of work-that-interferes-with-important-stuff-like-writing-fic: I've written 26 pages on my thesis on "Kingdom of Heaven" so far and I think it's at least not utter bullshit. In case I have up until now spared you with that particular assignment: I am supposed to write about 30 pages for my "Zweites Staatsexamen" (which makes me a proper teacher) and I'm doing this thesis on how to deal with KoH in history lessons for 11th grade. I'm far from finished and so I'll go and type a bit more now.

Oh, and before I forget: [livejournal.com profile] lorielen tagged me to do the Three things meme )
