Londoners on my Flist, I need your help! (the correct version)


Sorry about the post that was here before, I pasted the wrong thing XD

What I meant to write was this:

Me and a colleague booked a plane ticket for London, and we're going to be there from 10/05 to 14/05 (less than a month >_<) but we still haven't found a place where to sleep XD

Can you suggest any B&Bs, hostels or low budget hotels that you know are clean, comfortable, not too far from zone 1 (zone 2 would be perfect), that have a 24/7 check in for about 27/30£ per night?

I already found a couple on the net, but I don't trust the reviews very much, and I'd like an opinion from someone who knows the city.

Can you also tell me where I can find which bus leads where in the city? We'll probably reach London after 11 pm, so the tube could be closed...

Oh, and... Which place do you think we should absolutely see after the Westminster area and the British Museum?

Any suggestion will be very appreciated and well rewarded!

It's been a while, but I really don't know where to find the time to keep up with everything. My Firefox tabs are overflowing with fics I still have to read, I have to catch up on at least two TV shows and I have manga and books that are covered in dust and spiderwebs waiting for me to read them. Plus I got addicted to Facebook games. I'm spending to much time on them.

Please, I need help! Or a month long holiday >_<

Anyway, just to post something, are are two nice, easy quizzes I found on my flist.

Please take them too! )

Oh, today I'm making onigiri. If they come out cute I'll post some pics.

This entry contains only love <3

I meant to write about this two weeks ago, but of course I had to postpone... It's what I do best :P

Anyway, here's my Christmas present to myself: people, meet Albus Severus!

(Photo sucks because it was taken with my ancient cellphone. Click here if you want to see better ones. Mine has a 250 GB hard drive and other small differences in specifics, though.)

I've wanted him for a long time, especially when I was writing my SnuSa in this uncomfortable chair or when I wished I could write in places where I had no access to a keyboard, but of course I could buy him only when I had already finished XD

He will make yourself useful in the future, that's for sure.

He already does, actually, when I don't want to get up from the bed, when I'm cooking or when I go back to my parents' house; it's nice to have him with me, keeping me company!

I love my cute little baby >_

In the end I deleted it but...

I was about to make a very angry post about how I wish certain people would shut up, and then I realized that my anger always finds its way back to the same person, for whatever reason, in any situation.

I hate you, for ruining something I held so very dear and making me lose all my trust in people even when they probably don't deserve it.

And the worst thing is, you keep hurting me even without knowing it or doing anything.

Happy New Year, everyone!

And a late Merry Christmas, too!

I was a tad to busy to update my LJ, what with work and family, but now I have 6 days of vacation (well, five and a couple of hours, actually) and I can dedicate some time to my hobbies.

I spent yesterday night and today doing just that, and it felt so refreshing!

First of all after work I went to see Sherlock Holmes at the new theater that opened just last month. The place is very cool, sort of like a Warner Village, but smaller, even if the rooms aren't as big, but the screen was wonderful.

The movie was very nice, nothing to do with the books but Holmes and Watson's interaction is really something worth seeing (Holmes is SO in love...).

After that I came back home, had a nice evening chatting and reading fanfics, wished Happy New Year to everyone, went to bed and SLEPT LIKE A LOG. Man, I missed sleeping for as much as I wanted!

I woke up well rested, cooked up a nice lunch (cannelloni, if anyone wants to try them... they're delicious! But I would leave out the Worcester sauce :P) had a nice afternoon watching tv-shows and playing with my Wii (I'd forgotten how tiring DDR was XD), followed by a quick dinner with delicious morsels of fat-inducing goodness, and now I'm watching silly videos on Youtube.

All in all a very nice day, if it hadn't been for that slight detail that made me angry beyond belief and awakened my vengeful streak. But now I'm much, much calmer.

I even have a resolution list ready!

The one for last year had just one item, and it was to learn to live for myself.

I must say I did fulfill it, as much as I could. New home, new job, I'm starting to learn to say what I think without minding the consequences, and I'm less unsure about myself, even if just a tiny little bit.

This year's resolutions list as one item too. It's my greatest wish at the moment, and I'll do everything in my powers to make sure it is fulfilled.

2010 Resolutions List:


And this time I'm going to do everything possible to make sure it happens possibly before the month is over. Someday, if I have time, I'm going to explain exactly why.

But now back to Youtube and my chocolatey dessert!

Happy New Year again, everyone! May it bring you happiness, money and good health in abundance!

OMGWTFBBQ MY SNUSA GIFT IS HERE GOING TO READ IT RIGHT NOW *has lost all her sleepiness in the fraction of a second*

Dec. 1st, 2009

To my wonderful Friends List....

This year and the past one, due to real life and work, I've been pretty busy, and I realized I missed many of the most popular movies and anime that came out in the past 2/3 years.

And that's when you come in handy :P

Please reply to this post with a list of movies or anime series you think I really should have seen (I've already recovered a copy of Transformers and StarTrek, and I've seen The Dark Knight, the Twilight movies and Ice age 3), I want to make sure I didn't miss anything important!

I can't wait to see what you've got for me!

And yay, SnuSa is almost here *_______________________________*

My job here is done...

And so I hit the 'Send' button (thanks for the dose of courage, Karasu!).

I feel weird, but also lighter. I just hope the recipient likes it.

Oh well, we'll know soon enough!

Eight days to the posting!!!

*fans herself*

I just came back from seeing New Moon at the theater.

It wasn't as hilarious as Twilight and it was definitely too sappy, but there were those 5 minutes in total that I didn't regret spending 7 € for.

If you are shopping for a Christmas present from me, you should know I wouldn't mind a naked, wet Taylor Lautner under the tree.

Yeah, I know, I know, jailbait... But have you seen his chest?!

Speaking about being too old for those kind of things, my sister today discovered my first white hair Y_Y I feel so old Y_Y

Open letter to favorite writer

Dear JKR,

when are you going to publish that so talked about Encyclopedia of yours?

I need realistic timelines for my fics, damn it!

Love always and forever,

Your devoted fan that needs more information to write pr0n about the characters you created

Nov. 5th, 2009

Oooh, so angry right now.

You're right, I'm wrong. I can accept it, I did apologize.

If you start acting all high and mighty, though, you stop being right and become an asshole.

And for a fucking parking spot, no less.

I baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaakeed!!!

It's been so long, but I'm back with a vengeance!

Look at my Halloween themed cakes (a day earlier) here! )

Aaaah, feels so good to be back!

Oct. 28th, 2009

It's one of those days...

Mood says it all.

And people wonder why I spend so many times in my fandoms.

Real life fucking sucks sometimes. I wonder why I bother at all.

And I don't even know why I'm in this mood now...

I'm so glad my week of holidays is coming soon.

Maybe I just need to rest.

Double serving of pictures on its way!

Ok, ok, this time I have an excuse for beeing away for so long (Glee loving post excluded).

I've had few changes in my life in the last two months, some of which have decidedly cut off my free time.

In the middle of August my Team Leader at work took me aside and asked (read 'politely forced') me to transfer to another service in the call center I work for. Now I'm working for **** Technical Support, where **** stands for one of the biggest computer producers of the world. My job is to fix hardware (and sometimes software) related problems on the phone with the customer. You need a lot of hardware knowledge and a lot of ability when talking to people that usually barely know the size of their own hard drive.

And I don't have any of those skills, yay! So after a three weeks course we were put on line and it's been sort of a struggle since then, to learn the job, because it's full of weird procedures and you have to write everything down while you try to find what the customer actually did to his PC. And did I mention there are so many calls one can rarely breathe before the next one arrives?

But well, where I work it's considered one of the most coveted jobs, because as long as you work for **** Technical Support the job is a lasting one.

Let's hope so!

The thing that irked me most about the change of job is that it came exactly in the same period I finally managed to move out of my house.

Yes, I made it! I actually moved out!

And I had to do it during weekends, since thanks to this new job all the days off I took from work were canceled because they interfered with the course.

I spent a very busy three weeks, but I finally have my own room and the job seems to be getting easier now, and the house is clean and ready for a photoshot!

Hence the title, so beware, image-heavy under the cut!

My humble abode )

I'm enjoying life 'alone' quite a bit, even if there's more work to do, but finally having a room of your own is wonderful! Not to mention the city is full of nice places and shops to visit, and I can finally invite my friends and colleagues home for a cup of tea whenever I wish.

Well, if the crazy person other flatmate isn't home, that's it.

But that's a story for another time, I think you had enough for today!

Besides, I really need to work on my SnuSa fic... I'm soooooooooooo behind and it's due in about a month >_< Must hurry >_

The good, the bad and the ugly

My impressions of HBP, the movie )

Jun. 7th, 2009


Today I wrote 5000 words of fic.

Missed writing very much. Feeling very satisfied with myself now, which doesn't happen very often, so I wanted to share the happiness. Should have been in bed an hour ago, though.

*falls asleep right away*

I'm so dumb, I forgot...

... to wish you a Happy Birthday, [info]karasu_hime!!!!!

I hope I'm still in time, I'm not sure about the time-zone you're in!

Anyway, here's some hugs and a cake:

I hope you had a great one!
