Okay, today? No fic. At least not until I got it done. This is kinda like a placeholder and will be replaced with a story once the story for today was written (and, in the best of cases, betaed). I'll give you a note when I posted it, [ profile] sgteam14283. I hope this is the only story I don't finish on time and that I get back into the groove but I honestly can't make any promises. Also, next year... I most certainly will not post it only two and half months before Christmas. In fact, I will post the meme for 2012 on Jan 1 2012 and try to write the stories over the course of the year. Yes.

PS.: This is the last time ever I'll work between Christmas and New Year's Eve, if it's not absolutely necessary (meaning, should I be so lucky as to wear a uniform again and serve as a soldier, firefighter, cop or medic (which I don't believe but let's never say never), working between Christmas and New Year's Eve would at least make sense... even working on Christmas and New Year's Eve would make sense in that case), I swear.

Dear idiots who decided to have a car crash on my way to work, I hate you. I just bet it was both your fault but I kind of hope it was rather that old geezer who got his bumper shaved off his car front than the mobile nurse whose driver door the old geezer crashed into.

Dear S-Bahn Berlin who regularly cuts all traffic between Schönhauser Allee and Ostkreuz on Circle Line on weekends and turns frequency into ten minutes instead of five as usual, I hate you. Actually, I generally hate you, S-Bahn Berlin but what's new about that?

Dear Sunday bike riders with your expensive (and ugly) clothes and your total inability to use means of public transport (blocking a fucking S-Bahn door with your fucking bikes? Seriously? Go fuck yourself.) and your fucking arrogance, I hate you most of all. There's a goddamn reason why bike riders are hated almost as much as Swabians in Berlin and you were a prime example. Assholes.

God, I hate working Saturdays with the power of a thousand suns.

The family left for a one week skiing trip to Norway that I couldn't accompany them on because a) I didn't know we could go on leave during the probabtional period and b) my knee is still way too fucked up to actually enjoy skiing. Remember, it happened in April last year... and today was the first day I had the feeling I could run more than five meters at a reasonable jogging trot... And here I thought I'd be done with that stupid business by January...

Anyway, enough of the whining (after all, pain is just weakness leaving the body), have another "30 Days" question!

First five (and I should get around linking them all together some day... done!):

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.
2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you’re writing about fictional places)?

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!
5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?

Next one:

6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?

Creatures of the night, brought to light! )
gelbes_gilatier: (Not amused.)
Because, you know, it just turned out that May may be even worse. Okay, so the knee happened in April but the worst thing about it - the answer to the question if there's something seriously wrong with the meniscus or not - is yet to come (May 14th is the MRI appointment... one day before my birthday). Also, as of yesterday, I'm on antibiotics because of a %&$&ing throat infection. There's also the matter of The Letter, meaning I just got a refusal from the Foreign Office (which also means that I can't apply for that kind of career path again) just today. And when I thought things really couldn't any get worse, the laptop decided to act up with completely new shenanigans, giving me the very, very, very bad feeling that its end is near (please, laptop, don't do this to me... please just DON'T! Tell me that it was just a blip, okay? Yes? PLEASE?).

Seriously, how long and how bad is the "It has to get worse" part of "It has to get worse before it gets better" supposed to be? Because right now, I could use some "it gets better", just enough to make me keep believing that one day in the near future things will look a lot brighter. That's all I'm asking for. Is that really too much?

For example on the job front. And maybe a bit on the health front as well. Also, includes lots of Berlin pictures again because I just can't help gushing about it.

Oooh, baby, baby, it's a wild world... )

Also, on the rest health front: Remember the little accident at fencing last week? Went to the GP on Monday and thankfully she told me it wasn't a ruptured muscle fibre but just a bruise. Apparently, there are kinds of bruises you can't see but feel and she said that was such a thing. It's also gotten a lot better since it happened so I'm confident I can go back to sports next week.

Oh, oh, oh, AND I'm an idiot because with all the State Department commotion yesterday I totally forgot that it was [ profile] asugar's birthday yesterday. Shame on me :( Happy Birthday, dear! And I just know you'll graduate this year and you'll graduate with the best result possible! You can do it!

I finally survived moving house. Yay me. I managed to get through cleaning and rearranging the apartment that was supposed to serve as storage for my stuff, packing my stuff, painting the living room, packing more of my stuff, having a herd of shipping crew guys trample through my apartment, going up to Berlin, supervising guys unload my stuff, driving back to where I used to live, suffering through a migraine, suffering through several other migraines, having a nervous breakdown, trying to paint the bedroom, almost having another nervous breakdown, painting the bedroom, painting the kitchen and the corridor with the help of three really, really great friends, disposing of about a ton of trash (or at least it felt like that), getting snipped at by the neighbor one last time, cleaning up the apartment, waiting for the guy who agreed to drive me and the rest of my stuff to Berlin, seeing the landlord pick at things that were insignificant (and thanks for not giving me back all of my deposit money for the apartment not being "clean enough" after I cleaned for SIX FREAKING HOURS DAMMIT!) and miss things that were noteworthy (if your new tennant gripes about laminate and ugly scratches in it it's not my fault, you moron!), getting driven to Berlin and unloading the rest of my stuff.

Country roads... take me home... to the place... I belooooooong! )

Oh, and in writing news: I so want to post Chapter Eight of A Little Place Like Kokomo but §&$%&ing doesn't let me. I really, really want to see my readers' reaction to it but obviously decided to be a bitch again and show me why we have a love/hate relationship. I really didn't need that, thank you very much. Well... not. Anyway... bed now. Yeah *content sigh

Okay... where are we here? Resignation Land? I just read an e-mail from our current campaign leader ranting about some thing or other and threatening to resign. That would be the third campaign leader we'd lose (the first resigned because of work issues, the second was made to resign because of political issues and the third now obviously feels hurt in his vanity or whatever) this year and it's starting to get ridiculous. I really wonder if this resignation business is a male pecularity or if it only seems like it because all our campaign leaders up to now were male.

Some good old self-righteous difference feminist ranting to follow... )
