I’ve wanted to make those for a while already, but since Skyler was asking for American Beauty screencaps, I decided to just get over it and make them. 🙂 You can now find them here:American Beauty
I love the movie!! :valentine: And it was great seeing it again.
So far there’s no news about moving to Netrillium yet. I’m still waiting for the reseller orders to open up again, and also there’s no news about obsess-much.com moving to Go Daddy. Lets hope my current registrar won’t make any trouble, ’cause I really want to keep this name! My personal domain, well, I don’t know about that yet. Won’t be able to get it over to Go Daddy, ’cause they don’t accept .de domains. So I’ll see about that. Might change it completely…
Any suggestions for names I could use?
And now for my Friday Five
1. What do you most want to be remembered for?
Mmmmh, tough one. Probably for being a good friend. There’s not really much more there is to me…
2. What quotation best fits your outlook on life?
Hopeless romantics are only hopeless in the eyes of those who don’t believe in romance. (That’s ’cause I am a hopeless romantic :heart: )
3. What single achievement are you most proud of in the past year?
Being spontaneous, very spontaneous and taking a chance. (Meaning, I decided to fly to NYC, not really thinking about it and doing what my heart told me)
4. What about the past ten years?
Hummm….getting my “Abitur”? And even with a pretty good grade. Not what I expected at all.
5. If you were asked to give a child a single piece of advice to guide them through life, what would you say?
Listen to your heart.
And to annoy you even more with pointless stuff, here’s the Weekly Wrapup:
1. Do you like summer? Why or why not?
That depends on how hot the summer is. :happy: I didn’t really like it that much, mostly because at our old place I was living right under the rooftop and it got unbearingly hot up there in the summer. But now that I live in the basement it’s gotten 500% better :pleased: So now I think I can enjoy summer. 🙂
2. What is your favorite summer activity? Why?
Mmmh, good question. Rollerblading would be one thing. Now it’s even better, just across the street there’s a rollerblading paradise. 🙂
3. What is your favorite summer destination? Why? That would be the USA, but honestly, that’s my favorite destination any time of the year!
4. What are your summer plans for 2003?
Don’t really have any so far. If there’s a chance and another play/musical with Malcolm, I might just fly to NYC with Eliza again.
5. Would you be in favor of rotating long breaks for school-aged kids so that there aren’t as many out at the same time during summer? Why or why not?
Well, they already kinda do that here in Germany. Different “States” have different times for summer break.
Naaah, I’m not “really” moving again. 😎
Just my homepage might move. First it will only be my Fanlisting collective Obsess Much?, but my personal page might follow soon. There’s nothing definite yet. Didn’t buy a new hosting plan yet, but most likely will, ’cause the one I’m at right now is just too expensive for my liking. The one I’m considering right now has twice as much space and costs a little more than half of what I’m paying right now. :shocked: Yeah, there you see it. Everything concerning the Internet ist damn expensive here in Germany. :sad::angry:
So yeah, I’m thinking about changing to Netrillium, I got that suggestion from Bonnie. She’s very happy with it just as some other people I know, who are using it.
Currently I can’t buy the plan I want to use yet, but I guess they’ll open it up again within the next few days. *crosses fingers*
My Daily Double
1. If you were to die today, how many poeple do you think would attend your funeral?
Hummm….difficult question. Including my family, it would probably be around 12 or 13 I guess…but I’m not dying today so you don’t have to worry about what you’ll wear just yet. 😉
2. How many languages do you speak? What are they?
I speak two languages, English and German. But I also learned French, Latin and a little bit of Spanish, so I understand a bit of those. If forced I probably might be able to say something in French, don’t know.
Just noticed after posting that it’s not Friday anymore… oh well, what’s 21 minutes? 🙂
the friday five
1. What brand of toothpaste do you use? Colgate
2. What brand of toilet paper do you prefer? I love Charmin’ but my mom won’t buy it, ’cause it’s too expensive :blank:
3. What brand(s) of shoes do you wear? Camel or No-Name
4. What brand of soda do you drink? Vanilla Coke
5. What brand of gum do you chew? Orbit Sugar Free Gum
I just added some new Pictures to my page! Check out the “Pictures” section for pics of our trip to the zoo last sunday, and also some new pics of Anka. Aaah, she’s so adorable! :valentine::wolf:
I’m getting better and better with this stuff.
I just added all my instant smilies to the blog posting form. Nah, not very interesting for you guys, but for me. :pleased: When I post, I don’t have to remember all the codes, but can just click on the smileys.
So, I guess in my next few entries I might go a little smiley crazy, ’cause I’m so glad they work that way.:happy:
Wheee, the mailman just rang and gave me a package. I order some stuff from Kodak the other day and they already got it here. Fast! :shocked:
Now I’m the proud owner of a Malcolm mousepad and cup. :cloud9::hearts: Yeah, I already mentioned that I’m obsessed and I’m pretty sure you would’ve noticed without me telling. 🙂
I looove Kodak! :heart:
The mousepad is still a bit smelly, but that will go away (I hope), the quality of the pic is way better than I expected it. Same with the cup. Well, I’m happy now. :happy:
Well, not that bad maybe…dunno.
I’m trying to get the instant smilies for the comments to work. And they get included when you click them, but…they don’t show up in the comment after it’s been posted. 😥
When I check the comments in the admin panel the codes are still there though.
Anyone can help me??? 🙁
Well, I guess my week of care-free living is almost over. 🙁
My mom has been on a school trip since Monday, which meant I was home alone with Anka. There was really not much going on. I just spent most of my time in front of the computer (which is no news, is it? ;))
Anyway, in a few hours I’ll pick her up at the station, so I have some time left to clean everything around here. Yeah; I’m a bit messy. 😀 She hadn’t even been gone for a day and the kitchen already looked like a bomb had been dropped in there. :shocked: Yeah, I already cleaned most of that now. 🙂
Anyone else out there who is so messy? I have to say when it comes to my own room, that is usually pretty clean. But only ever since we moved. Before that you could barely walk in my room. I guess I just had too much stuff. Most of it I just threw out when moving. Now I have enough space for everything. Well, kinda. The other day I noticed that my DVD collection seems to be exploding. I have so many they don’t fit in the assigned space anymore. :uhoh: I guess something else has to go then.
*runs off to ebay* Actually I have some videos for sale on there, though I guess I won’t get much money for them. Too bad. *sighs* As long as they go out at all.
Ok, I started rambling, and I’m sure nobody is interested in all this, so I’m just gonna stop.
Tata for now!
So, I just changed my blog from Greymatter to Movable Type.
I had considered it for a while already, and today I decided to go for it. After reading some praise about at the Codegrrl.com Forums
It took me a while to figure out how everything works, and how to transfer all my entries, but I’ve made it. Hurrah!
Thanks also goes to Sasha for helping out when I was stuck. It was just a small pointer, but if she hadn’t told me the script probably wouldn’t be installed yet. So, thanks a lot! You’re my hero!
Inspired by Martina I scanned the pictures of my first trip to the USA. That was in 1996 and I went to Falmouth, MA with my school. I had a wonderful time, and I felt at home there. Leaving that place was one of the hardest things i had to do in my life.
I wish I’d still be in contact with my “family” but somehow we lost sight of each other and now I can’t find them anymore. 🙁
I haven’t updated in a while.
But I guess there is not really a lot going on at the moment.
Let’s go to the page stuff first:
I made a new layout for Obsess Much? and the Splash Page for my domain. They are both in a black and white Caroline and the City Layout now. Personally, I really like it, but that’s probably ’cause I’m kinda obsessed with the show? Yeah, that might be it. So, what do you guys think about it? Do you like it? Please give me your input, I’d really appreciate it.
Other than that, well, I applied for two new fanlistings. Both in the Stage Shows category. And both fanlistings where I wondered why I didn’t think about making them earlier.
The first one is for the musical “Tanz der Vampire”, in the USA known as “Dance of Vampires”. It is very popular over here in Germany, I saw it twice myself, and wouldn’t mind seeing it a third time before it closes in August. I’m quite upset about it closing, but oh well, it’s been running for about 3 years now? Not quite sure, but 3 years sounds about right.
Anyway, the second fanlisting is for the musical “A New Brain”, which is my favorite musical of all time. When I first listened to it, I loved it right away. I wodner what I have been waiting for. I could’ve applied for those fanlistings a long time ago!
Now for the personal stuff. Well, there’s not really much to tell.
Besides the fact that I really want to go back to New York. And something that is pretty new…If possible, stay there forever. Yeah, you heard right.
For a long time I always thought I wouldn’t want to live in the USA forever, especially not in a huge city like New York. After all, I hate big cities! But it’s different with New York, don’t ask me to explain, ’cause I really don’t know why.
I talked about this with a friend yesterday, and I guess the reason for me wanting to live in the USA in general, is that I just want to get away from everything here. Want to make a new start. Since things aren’t going too well for me over here. And while we were in New York I could forget about all of this. That was the best time I had in ages, and leaving New York was a hard thing to do. I just didn’t want to.
Something else I just remembered: Oh, my doc is hot! The one I have to see about my toe. Really looking forward to every visit. *g*
