I have finally revived my old flickR account and posted my first images there since forever. They are all from a small trip I took to Amsterdam in September with my Diana F and a black and white film.
I spent a couple of days there with Kate and later my parents and did a lot of bike riding.

I actually wanted to make this post yesterday, but didn't do it, did not manage for some reason. I've been watching this season as every year, but I seem to become less and less interested. There were a few nice pieces though. I think Travis Wall picks such beautiful music to choreograph to.

So in my quest for more health for myself, I started juicing a lot. So here are some pics of my juices. Ingredients can be pumpkin, red beet, watermelon, apples, pears, oranges, citrus fruit, spinach, romana salad and cucumber, parsley and mint.

So this morning started really well. Managed to get up with my alarm clock, prepped my morning juice and did a 40 minute workout. Then got ready, managed to do a straight line above my lashes that I usually never manage and went to the train. Train drove in just as I stopped on the platform. Connection tube was set for "right now" so I ran and managed to squish right through the closing doors and there was a free seat as well.

After that, I learned dutch vokabulary and did really well while listening to my currently favorite song, Overdone by Bombay Bicycle Club.

Anyways, it went downhill from there. Phone is constantly rining and I haven't managed to do any of the work yet that I actually planned. Ah damn, have some fun winter bros ice bucket video.



ps: True Blood managed to give us the most boring finale ever. Such a damn shame.

So I found this Video "Drawing on the right side of the brain. And I figured it could not hurt to try. The first step was doing a selfportrait in 30 minutes. At leats the portrait resembles me a little bit.

I wanted to write about this earlier but was way too busy with work. There was the hugest storm in over 10 years in my region on monday night. According to news sites, over 20.000 lightning bolts hit a city in an hour. I was very lucky, that I was home in my apartment and not outside because the storm wrecked havoc in my city and in the ruhrgebiet.

Tuesday morning I went to work by car, because surprise, no trains, no subway, nothing. And the ride to work was eerie and tootally shocking. The damage is so extensive. It looked as if nature had taken back the city. Many streets were blocked by debris, mostly trees.

Oddly enough, the thing still standing was a political ad.

I hope all my friends in the area are all right.

This is a picture I took from the car.



And here are some I found online )

ETA: Please check out The Ocean Cleanup

I had this really old post written out about tv shows I'm watching. It included thoughts on Arrow and the Amricans as well as Grimm and a teaser to the new Gotham show pilot, which I think looks ace. But as so often when I got a lot on my plate I don't finish the posts even though writing it out actually makes me more productive.

So maybe I should start it again.

I'm not looking forward to Haven this year. The last season was so disappointing to me. But Longmire started again and was very interesting. I've also stopped watching Continuum after episode 3 of the current season. Does anyone recomment starting that again?

I am a bit behind on the Americans. Hopefully I will find the time to catch up on it this long weekend. I've really enjoyed Arrow and Grimm a lot this season. And currently I'm mostly watching 25, Game of Thrones and especially Orphan Black. Still my favorite. So favorite indeed that I have signed up for an icon challenge for the first time in ages. 20inspirations with OB season 2 to be exact. I will have some fun with it.

I have also created my own tumblr theme, which you can see in action on my tumblr.

So as it happens, no cinema in the vecinity shows the movie in english. They tell me distributor isn't handing them out. My guess is that they will wait for a week or to to make people who want to see the english version see the dubbed version first and then head to the cinema again. What other reason can there be, really.

I'm really annoyed. We have an early release here finally.

Anyways, please don't spoil me. I don't want to know. I'm not even sure if I want to know if you love it or not or squeee about it, because I know from experience that too much good reviews can change my expectations and I might like the movie less.

The new season is looming- Hopefully I will get more excited about some shows again. Oddly enough, the only show I really look forward to right now is Arrow.

The weather has been really nice, chilly but the sun is out, so I have been going outside on my lunchbreaks in occasion. It's quite wonderful to leave the office for a bit. I took some pics. Also got some flowers from a client as appreciation of my hard work.

So I've decided to check out the Black List and I quite enjoy it. I'm still in the pilot episode. James Spader as always is amazing and the rest of the cast is great as well. Especially nice to see Harry Lennix again.

I've been shoveling this fennel salad in my face. It is just so damn good.

You can find the recipe here. It's in German.

Final day of the challenge. I am a bit behind because it's christmas tgime and work has gotten a lot more stressful and I'm at my capacity of stuff I can do. At the simplest things, I go too much, too much. Can I panic now?

I don't actually consider myself a blogger. I stared this livejournal when I got into Smallville fandom. Livejournal was where fandom had migrated too which is why when I returned I made an account.

The fandoms changed but the people stayed. Which is how I also came to write more personal things about myself and document a little what I am doing. It's noce to share it :D
