Still here…

Still here…

Ah, didn’t blog in a while. Sorry about that…
Just a few days ago I started to work as second staffer for the movies category at TFL.Org I’m only taking care of Finished, Moved and Closed fanlistings. So this shouldn’t be too difficult. Though, it’s a very large category. Katie, the other staffer forwarded all the forms she had in her mailbox to me, so I made a big update yesterday. Took me a few hours to work through everything. But that’s only ’cause the forms were dating back a few weeks. I’ll try to keep it up to date as much as possible. That way it should be easy to handle.

I don’t think I mentioned Secret Obsession here yet, did I? Yeah, you guessed right, another domain I bought. :blush: I just can’t stop. I got the name from a line in “Amour”. In the song “Dusoleil in Jail” Madeline and Claire sing to Dusoleil “I love you, I need you, and you need me too. My secret obsession, oh my Passepartout” When I heard that, I just knew I had to get that as a domain name. I’m crazy, I know. :happy: I ordered the domain without even knowing what I was going to do with it. But now I know. I will make that a screencaps site. All the screencaps that are up here, and more I’m going to make will be put up there. 🙂 Well, now I got the idea, but I have no idea what it will look like yet. Grrr. I have way too much t do. And I’m constantly slacking off. I could have already finished the Malcolm page, but no, not even close yet. Though, I am actually working on it, just very slowly.

Other news. Eliza is coming to visit in a bit over 2 weeks. Yay! On August 4th I’m going to drive my mom to her friend, living close to Cologne, and after that I’ll pick up Eliza and we’ll drive back to my place. She will stay till August 8th. I’m sure we’ll have tons of fun!!
A day after she leaves, on Saturday, I’ll drive to Hinterzarten with Biggi, to go see the summer skijumping tournament! So looking forward to that! Hopefully the weather will be better than last year though. Don’t want to be soaked again.

On Tuesday I got a small stack of CD in the mail. 3 to be exact. “Into the Woods”, “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Hairspray”. I love them all very much, but “Hairspray”, Woah! Awesome!! Have been listening to nothing than that CD for the past 3 days!! If you love musicals, go get it!

I think that was all for today… besides the Weekly Wrapup of course

1. What song (new or old) do you secretly enjoy, but publicly ridicule? Why?
Heh, there are some songs by Jennifer Lopez, that I actually enjoy. *blushes* But really, i can’t stand that woman!
2. Do you carry a purse or tote bag or backpack? If so, what’s inside?
I carry a small backpack when I go out during the day. I have my wallet, keys, and lipbalm in there. When I go out at night, with friends, I usually also have some gloss, mascara and stuff in there. But not always, I’m not that much of a make-up person.
3. Describe your dream job. Why did you select this one?
Professional Photographer. I just loove photography. But I do realize that it is very hard in that business. That’s why I’ll try for webdesign.
4. You are given an opportunity to live anywhere in the world, expense free, but you can never move again. Where do you live? Why?
That’s an easy question. Wanna take a guess? Of course New York City!! I just love the city!
5. What do you like about living in your particular city? Would you recommend it to others as a good place to live and work? Why?
As I usually don’t like too big cities (NYC the exception of course), Reutlingen is perfect. It is big, but not too big. It just has the right size.
6. What five people, living or dead, famous or not, do you wish lived on your block?
Heh, you can take a guess again, who’s going to be listed first. 🙂 Yeap, Malcolm Gets. Other than that, hmmm, oh yeah! Eliza! That way we could meet and talk more often! That would be awesome! Don’t know who else to list…

Lots to do

Lots to do

As some of you might have read in my LJ, I actually went out to a party last night. Haven’t done that in aaaages. And it felt really good, even though most of the time the music was crappy. We didn’t go for long, ’cause Christine had a class at 8 in the morning. We decided to go to another party together in two weeks though. It’s a farewell party for the English students who attended the university for this semester.

Anyway, on to more stuff….my To-Do List, in no particular order:
finish the NDW fanlisting
make the Snow White fanlisting
– keep working on
update Stage Shows at
– make tons of Screencaps (several movies)
mail Greencard Lottery application
– copy CitC episodes for Susanne
– copy Amour video on CD for several people
– make Malcolm MP3 CD for Melanie

More will be added as I think of it.

Now for the usual weekend stuff.
The Friday Five
1. Do you remember your first best friend? Who was it?
That was Alex, he lived right next door and we were friends since maybe the age of 2 or 3?
2. Are you still in touch with this person?
No way. We grew apart in 5th grade.
3. Do you have a current close friend?
That’s a tough question, honestly I don’t really have one.
4. How did you become friends with this person?
5. Is there a friend from your past that you wish you were still in contact with? Why?
I think I posted about her in my blog before…that would be Danielle. I stayed with her and her mom during a school exchange in the USA and she was like my sister. I’d love to see her again. So far I had no luck finding her. 🙁

The Weekly Wrapup
1. Do you like stormy weather? Why or why not?
In General I really like it. Thunderstorms are great! I love to watch the lightning. But when it comes to my computer I hate them! I’m scared my baby will get hurt.
2. What do you do when a storm breaks in the middle of the night?
If I actually wake up…try to fall asleep again.
3. When you were a child, where did you think the thunder and lightning came from?
The people up in heaven are having a big fight.
4. Describe your favorite and/or worst stormy memory.
Favorite would be the thunderstorm in Monument Valley. It was a gorgeous sight, even though it almost blew our tent away. We spend a long time running around the tent, trying to make sure it doesn’t actually fly away. Other people weren’t as lucky. 2 or 3 tents landed in the valley



That’s all I can say.
My mom went for a walk with Anka in the afternoon, and when they came back Anka was not cream-colored anymore. She was green! And she smelled awful!! :shocked: Apparently she jumpeeed into a ditch and was having a good time. The smellier the better for her. Yuck! Well, we took the hose and tried to get as much as possible washed out, but what can I say, she still smells, and so does our livingroom. Why do dogs always like the extra smelly stuff??

On a lighter note, I did the big trouble check update in the Stage Shows category today. You probably wonder why I say big update, when it’s so small. Well, let me tell you, for Stage Shows it really is big, this is such a quiet category, I’m very happy with it. Though, I wouldn’t mind taking care of another small category. Preferably Places or Animals. But they are in good hands right now, so I’ll just busy myself with Stage Shows. Just have to make sure I don’t apply for all the fanlistings in there. It’s very tempting, but well, need to give other people chances too. If they ever apply for the fanlistings I want. What a dilemma.

There’s no news on MalcolmGets.Com. Didn’t work on it all week, but it is on my To-Do List for the weekend. Now that I got the Stage Shows update out of the way, I should have enough time. At least when I don’t get approved for any of the fanlistings I applied for. :pleased: Nah, really, I want to get this finished, so I better get my ass in gear.

Now just one last thing….the Friday Five:
1. What were your favorite childhood stories?
Mmmmh, I would say fairytales.

2. What books from your childhood would you like to share with [your] children?
Definitely Astrid Lindgren’s books. She was a fabulous author

3. Have you re-read any of those childhood stories and been surprised by anything?
Nope, but I guess I should some time

4. How old were you when you first learned to read?
Wow, umm, I think I started learning to read in kindergarten, so I must’ve been around 4 or 5. I loved to read back then and I still do!

5. Do you remember the first ‘grown-up’ book you read? How old were you?
I really don’t remember…
