I'm not a fan of watching soccer, nor have I ever been a fan of the German (males') Team, but after watching the last two games (and only those) - respect. Fucking Manuel Neuer deserves the titel Cerberus, and Schweinsteiger was not giving up despite all odds and fouls coming his way - the team played together well without a doubt, and this performance makes this victory well-deserved.|

I'm just thinking about what to do with this journal. I'm not really actively involved in fandoms anymore, not that I don't want, but rather the toddler gives me no fucking time to do so. I really love spending all my time with him, and he's seriously the sweetest, best addition to my life, but yeah, no more free time for anything (he's not in daycare yet).|
I'm still reading Manga regularly: Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, D.Gray-Man, Addicted to Curry, Piano no Mori, but I have seriously not watched any anime in the last two years or watched any significant clips of Japan's glorious entertainment industry. D: It makes me sad, although I'm happy that real life is so fantastic that it leaves me without much wishes (erm, except for the tiny details like wanting to finish the study, needing to clear out the basement a.k.a my past in boxes and wishing that the other girl had won at Germany's next Topmodel).
So I guess I just wanted to give a small update on how it is. I love being at home with my little devil, but I never wanted to be someone who only posts about their kids (although I can clearly understand why parents feel that way, now). I do have a facebook account under my real name, but even there I rarely post about the spawn, because I don't want to annoy people.
Most if not all of my acquaintances here come from the time when I was utterly fascinated and immersed in diverse fandoms. If you feel like we have not enough in common anymore, please feel free to say goodbye. I still read my f-list regularly, because even without being smack in the middle of fandom the people I've gotten to know are still the people I care about, and try to comment whenever I can contribute a thought. I've wanted to prune my f-list and profile text for ages, but again, never got the time and or nerves to do it. I'll honestly not be hurt if you decide to unfriend this journal, though, because I am in fact not really active anywhere (unless in a parenting comm, oh crap, how did that happen!?). I mean if you unfriend me and I miss you, I'll make sure to message you again. ;)
If there's even anyone reading this... what do you think? Would you mind occasional spawn posts, or do you get stomach cramps by thinking about it?
Is there maybe even someone - I don't even dare to ask - who could fix me up with something like Anime, Arashi/Kanjani/J in general on data dvd (will pay expenses/shipping!)? I'm a bit desperate here, and clueless, and don't even know anymore what to watch and where to. I'm trying to find more time for everything, but I've tried for the last two years and you see where it ended. :|

Found this by coincidence and really loved it:|
"A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos)"
Also, it's never a good thing when you sign up for an online learning system**, and - after clicking the access link from the billing email - get nothing but an error message from the website... har har. The site was up again the next day, but man, no joy.
[** _THE_ only available one, 60 bucks instead of 40 for the disc, but the dvd does not work on a mac and only crawls in the emulators.]

... I just accidentally switched into an episode of Supernatural (one where the guys check into a psychiatric clinic to find a ghost that sucks out brain juice), and... brrr! These monster faces are too scary for me!! Especially when home alone in a large, dark flat. I used to love the x-files, so I don't know... maybe it's the occult satanism references that I just can't handle (because x-files had plenty of uglies as well... or maybe I'm getting old)?|
*shivers silently in a corner*
Edit: The worst is - I can't switch it off! Ahhhhh!

shivers down the spine
|» Faith, but not in humanity.|
Sorry, I haven't really been on the computer in the last days, but will catch up this week.|
I've just been watching a documentary on Jonestown before going to bed (where they play the 45 min. live suicide audio tape), and it disturbed me so much I had to get up again. Whoever can do that to children is just not human. Sects in general are dangerous, but this extent is extremely unsettling to watch or read about. True that humans can do a lot of beautiful things, but for every excellence of beauty or kindness exists the polar opposite share of disgusting acts.
I had to watch this ("worst" ice skater) to lighten my mood enough for getting to sleep again.
(*Edit* Next try to find rest: clean out bathroom box with dusty bottles etc. @_@)

|» Useless gifts! (Possibly not totally worksafe)|
These are sort of tasteless, too (although the first design is aesthetically nice until you know what it is supposed to be).|
This Pearl Necklace is exactly what you think it is and not of the sort of pearls found in the sea.
Obviously I shouldn't be surprised since there's people who would wear jewellery, shaped like more or less realistic vulvae (and who wants to wear vulvae earrings? Isn't having one enough?!), and women who paint with menstrual blood collected in Diva cups, but still... :x
The same artist also offers a tableware set modeled after the digestive tract here (Consumption) , and while I don't dislike the idea of displaying anatomical images on everyday things at all, this simply doesn't look appetizing. Maybe it's because the woman you are asked to scroll over in order to view the dishes looks like a corpse found in the next riverbed. :x
Stuff like that is harmless, of course, and doesn't shock me, but I'm amazed that people would possibly buy any of these!
Thanks to Dr. Grumpy for these!

|» A feeling everyone hates.|
At least I suppose everyone does. What might that be? As someone else mentioned, it's the horrible sinking feeling that the shit is going to (or has) hit the fan. |
In my case, it was the rhythmical whirring and clicking of my harddrive last week. Goodbye, dear friend. >:'(
Luckily Apple was lenient and replaced it although the warranty expired a month ago. That sort of action is filed under "ensuring customer happiness" (it says something aling these lines on the internal print out from the techs).
Breaking the system (10.5) in will take a while. Also, I'm just recovering from three weeks filled with a nasty whooping cough that turned into an even nastier bronchitis, so don't be surprised of my absence. *groans* Of course all that had to happen the moment I was going to return to lectures. Grr.
