Random updated since my wife whined that I should post something here. ;p
Yeah, not much going on here since I mainly use my LJ to comment on those of others lately.

Ah... A beautiful example for one of those many things I find so fascinating about flamenco:

"There are so many cultures who have passed through Andalusia... And a language has sprung up from all that common ground. It's true that flamenco is one of the clear examples that uniting cultures, races or religions can create something in common, something to be shared."

From an interview with María Pagés. A great dancer, especially when one looks beyond her appearances on 'Riverdance' (or the fact that she danced for Bush's inauguration *shudders*). Not that the dancing was bad or anything. :)

I just realised again how much these lyrics (My Mind's Eye by Sirenia) are Noirin...

If you were here
I'd whisper sweet nothings in your ear
And appeal to all your fears
If you were mine
I'd bring you so much further down
And twist your mind until the end of time

You will never realize
What darkness lies inside my mind

If you are down
I will come to chain you to the ground
And penetrate your mind
If you are lost
I'll be there to break you trust
And ravage all your lust for life, my love

You will never realize
What darkness lies inside my mind

So, my Cueetie, want to write some Noirin/Talaith to them? ;P
Even if I actually see them more fitting for Noirin and "puppy-guy". But I'm still so happy that you actually like the whole Noirin/Talaith thing and don't feel like it's forced into the story. :)

Wow, haven't really written anything here for quite a while. Well, life was busy and definitely going up and down.

Had a job-interview on Wednesday. Great job and all, but they picked the other one. Said that we were basically both as interesting but the other one had more experience in that field. No clue if that was true or not, they had to say something after all. Also not sure whether it'd be good thing or not if it was actually true, it made me quite worried about my future job-perspectives.

On the other hand, I got the confirmation that my pure terror when it comes to oral presentations is apparently not visible to those who watch/listen to me. Seems like I'm coming across as rather confident, with clear speech and presenting the stuff in a comprehensible/coherent way.
Yeah, I have a tendency not believing people what they're saying but rather read between the lines, interpret (and "occasionally" over-interpret >.>) and watch their reactions. And the prof in question looked so completely astounded and unbelieving when I said that I really have problems with oral presentations, that I'm inclined towards believing her words. ;)
That's good to know, especially since we have to do those damn presentations in every freaking seminar.
Well, that was a nice thing. That and her saying - after she had a little hissy-fit at most of our group concerning the fact that 'studying' means taking responsibility and being proactive - that I'm on the right way, that I should dare to even take a step further since it will be something really good coming out of this...

Yeah, that kind of made up for not getting the job and worrying about how it will be in another 3 years or so. I don't really like this professor, to be honest. She is not my kind of person but I do respect her on a professional level. And she will be around, so if I make a good impression on her, I might be able to use her as a future reference. And further more I'm still planning to trying for a doctor's degree after my masters.

But enough of this now. I've got some dragon eggs to catch. ;)

For the first time ever I've finished a story. O.o
As in, a "real" story, not just a one-shot. A 71'852 words story.

It feels nice, in a way. I've never managed to really finish something like this before (talking about quantity here, not about quality). Still, somehow I've expected to feel even more accomplished... But maybe it just hasn't hit in yet or I have to get over it that it's probably not "literary" enough for me. Or it's just because the actual "story" is not really finished with this but just the first part out of that "ever-growing-project-spawning-more-and-more-parts-and-plots" aka "Pytt i Panna" aka "Tha' Crap".

Well, done with A Price to Pay and moving on to Travelling Paths. Maybe. We will see. Depending how much my wife is wanting to read more of this stuff. ;)

Destiny is calling,
Immortality be mine.


Today the blood of battle,
Upon my weapons will never dry.
Many I'll send into the ground,
Laughing as they die.


Maybe if I play it over and over again, Cael and Noirin will finally shut up? *hopeful*
And I don't even like Manowar that much. -.-

Urgl... And now my wrist hurts, @.+
But if everything goes by plan, I'm going to be finished by Sunday and then I'm over with it. I'm almost tempted to do it like my wife and try for a double- or triple-NaNoWriMo but I think I'm skipping out on that. I have to concentrate on school again which has been sadly put aside during this week. In which I did NaNo. O.o

Oh gods... Why do I really want to see Snape and Sephiroth facing off in a duel to the death now?
Mrow!!! *.*

And no, I would not pair those two off with each other. Way too weird, even for me. But watching two nasty guys kicking each other's ass... *purrs and cackles*
Sweeeeeeeeeeetie! When can we watch Death Note again? *puppy eyes* ;p

Now back to middle bronze-age pottery. Middle bronze-age pottery is good for me, yes yes.
