Conversation.

Dad: You sing while driving?
Me: Dad, I don't sing. I perform.
Dad: chuckles
Me: What else am I supposed to do while driving?
Dad: Concentrate on driving...
Me: Well...
Dad: And imitate engine sounds.
Me: LOL

Dear hipster

Dear hipster,

I know you feel like a very special snowflake and super intellectual with your skinny jeans and big fake nerdy glasses. But honestly you look exactly like all your other pathetic hipster friends and for fuck's sake if you don't need glasses don't wear them.

No love Jules.

Funny.

Since the world shows us everyday what a bloody stupid horrible place it can be (Syria, Libya, Japan, etc) I post something that will make your day or at least the next 1:23min of your life more cheerful.





P.S. NO I usually do not watch random youtube videos of babies or animals or whatever the fuck people say you should watch. I am the last person to do this but hello this baby is freaking adorable. Do not argue with me on this one. haha

P.P.S. I find it endlessly fascinating how resilient toddlers are (because this kid brains himself three times while giggling) and how they learn to use minor scratches or bumps as a way to gain attention (because they only cry when someone is looking). You know what I mean?! Kids are awefully manipulative and brilliant. Human behaviour is fascinating. (Did I just turn a cute little video into somekind of sociological thing... *facepalm*

Scheherazade by Richard Siken

What a beautiful poem.


Scheherazade by Richard Siken

Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
and dress them in warm clothes again.
How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
Until they forget that they are horses.
It’s not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
it’s more like a song on a policeman’s radio,
how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the
days
were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple to slice
into pieces.
Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it’s noon, that
means
we’re inconsolable.
Tell me how all this, and love too, will
ruin us.
These, our bodies, possessed by light.
Tell me we’ll never get used to it.

Fortune tellers.

OMG have you seen this?!
This little fellow is basically living next door. (And I haven't seen it yet. lol)
In Germany live the craziest fortune teller animals. First Paul, now Heidi. And they have these cute German names. lol
ABC actually wanted to fly in Heidi to the US but our zoo in Leipzig politely declined because HELLO?! it's still only a cute little opossum. So no flying around the world if you want to see it come to Leipzig (it's great the zoo has more animals and it's a city full of crazies if you look closely (me!)).

The King's Speech

I just watched The King's Speech.

Holy shit, give Firth a fucking Oscar! He's absolutely brilliant - always has been and since the Academy didn't choose him last year they better do it this year.
And another one please for the lovely Helena Bonham Carter (outstanding as usual) and for the great Geoffrey Rush aswell.

This is my Inception squee post!

Please see my icon: Reality is a nice place, but I wouldn't want to live there. So I watched Inception. Twice.

It's bloody insane how a movie that is actually an action flick can fascinate such a huge amount of people.
So this is my Inception post. If you haven't watched the movie: GO DO SO! And then come back. ;)

Actually I wanted to watch Inception in the theaters but it was released here (Germany) in summer so nobody couldn't be bothered to join me. I got it as a Christmas present - the normal DVD. But Jesus that's the first movie I truly want to watch in 3D (I usually hate 3D) or at least on Blue Ray. Well but no such thing... Anyways...

The movie is definitely an action flick (a pretty brutal one I might say because what they do with the projections is not nice. And killing each other.) and has very little character development (a part from Drom obsly). BUT Nolan planted a fucking huge idea in my head. So simply saying I'm intrigued would be an underestimation. The idea of the movie is simply insane and how it's introduced to us through Dom's previous failures and Ariadne's learning process are fabulous ideas.
Plus everything is very illegal and secret. Hell, they actually steal thoughts in very elegant way! (Brilliant!)
So I loved watching it (both in English and in German).

onto more rambling about characters and ships )

This fandom owns my soul! Usually I don't get into a fandom based on a movie because it's mostly short lived (the movie itself and the fandom) and most movies do not capture my attention so thoroughly. But Inception does! I even wrote fic. A story in English even!
So I'm in need of a beta reader for a under 2k gen fic. (It's Eames centered. Yeah.) Anybody?!

News article

I'm reading the newspaper article Requiém por el fumador (requiem for the smoker) written by the subdirector of ABC, Fernando Lafuente. It's a more than 1k long whine why the world is a bad bad place and why smokers a really sad and hated creatures for no reason.
I'm a smoker myself but I'm laughing my ass off here. This man is such a dramaqueen (and he can do it with so many words because he's the freaking subdirector) - it's pathetic strangely amusing.

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas for you and your loved ones!


I hope you have a nice time even if you don't celebrate it.
The year is ending in a sad way because there has been a lot of bad news (death & sickness) in my family and my friends' family so I hope you cherish this time you can spend if people you love.

Yours
Jules

Question

Quick English vocabulary question: the phrase "at the place of" is only used to localise something/to describe a location. y/y?! (Because my mind is confusing it with "in place of") Or can it be used metaphorically aswell?


(This is a silly question if you see it written down. My brain questions everything! Stupid thing.)

Dear Winter,

Can it please stop snowing like right now?
Either it's snowing or there's ICE (capital letters. I nearly was involved a car crash today. Thank you driver behind me for your super fast reaction and saving our cars.) It's a freaking winter wonderland I hate to no end. Because I'm always late or they cancel my train or tram or I can't park because there's like a meter of snow and ice covering everything or my car is dead (because it hates winter aswell) or I slip or...
I announced in October I want that I'd want to be a bear and have my winter sleep. Please I wanna be a bear (lol I'm weird).

4 facts.

#01 So my laptop just fell down approx. 50 cm because I'm an idiot. But apparantly no harm was done.

#02 So yesterday hell broke loose for the local tram system because of frosted overhead contact wires. Very christmassy. No trams, full busses, no taxis and people landing on their butts and faces in the icy winter wonder land. In the morning the situation wasn't any better (my dad called: Don't bother leaving for uni. It's CRAZY! lol dad you're the man.). A friend texted me that there were 12 students in class, but no teacher. Staying at home = best idea today.

#03 My application for the Master Course was incomplete because the second recommendation didn't arrive. Like I expected people are idiots. My former tutor (who is now at a different uni) sent it via express. It NEVER arrived. The letter is bascially lost. So we'll see when I can send in said missing recommendation and if I even have the slightest change to get the Master course or/and a scholarship. Sucks. Royally.

#04 It started snowing again right now.


Have a nice day!

Reformation Day

In the spirit of today's Reformation Day. Because today isn't Halloween everywhere.
In honour of Martin Luther who enraged the Pope by saying that religion is something positive, personal and spiritual. Nobody can tell you what you want to believe in.


If God had a name what would it be?
And would you call it to his face?
If you were faced with him
In all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face what would it look like?
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that
you would have to believe
in things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints
and all the prophets


What If God Was One Of Us by Joan Osborne
