I started this last year in January but never kept up with it on lj, only on my laptop. That's why this time the list gets its own post :)

Coding from the NaNoWriMo word meter which you can find here
Idea to use this from [livejournal.com profile] dine7184

What I did in 2008: no book count, 95 films, 430 TV show episodes.

My goals for 2009: 25 books, 100 films (again!), 500 TV show episodes (oh my god !)

11 / 25 books. 44% done!

books )

61 / 100 films. 61% done!

500 / 500 episodes. 100% done!

Seen with [livejournal.com profile] jessm78. I'm nearly 26 so there you go, pretty much the same as you, Jess. We act our age :)

You Act Like You Are 26 Years Old
You are a twenty-something at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.
You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.
The world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.

if there's a three year old running wild. Unfortunately the familiy where I'm tutoring at home did not know that. Consequently me and the girl ended up locked into the living room while daddy and Allessandro (said 3 year old) left for some friend's home. If you're wonderingabout our reaction when I tried to leave - it went something like this:
Did you lock the door ? ...Mhhh, no, why ?...Because it's locked....It can't be locked!...It is...But I don't have a key!...Well great. Now what ?
We phoned the dad who laughed at us - I could hear him - and then he called the mom, who came home 5 minutes later. Unfortunately Allessandro likes to hide keys, too, so she ended up trying the one from the kitchen and that worked as well. Good thing that I wasn't even late for my next student, which is from 7 p.m. till 8.30 ON A FRIDAY. Just so you know how I spend my Friday evenings now :D

Completely unrelated, you can find my take on the contestants of the two last American Idol shows under the cut (not the wildcard show yet, we haven't gotten that far). I think my sleeping patterns would be great for someone living in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean nowadays but I'm simply not tired as long as I sit up :D

It's 1.45 a.m. and I'm not tired because that's the best AI watching time )

And since it seems that instead of memes this week people-who-tell-you-what-not-to-write-on-your-lj get around, a huge thanks to my f-list for not saying something like that to me. I'm already angry enough about the audacity some people possess when they're online!

And just so you know that my mom named me correctly, I give you the 'What your initials say about you' meme. I think it's pretty accurate.

The BBC allegedly believes most people will have only read 6 of these 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up? Bold those books you've read in their entirety, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish.

book list here )

I got tagged by [livejournal.com profile] agent_almeida, thanks so much, hon :) You really did make my day as I'm a bit lonely right now!

Pick 10 people and give them the "you make my day" award. If you're picked, you are charged with picking 10 of your own.

I'm so going to cheat because I didn't know whom to cut from those 12 !!! :D

1. [livejournal.com profile] chris4short

I love you all for different reasons and know you from different fandoms. We have different believes and opinions and I love talking about them. Basically you all rock !

I booked my flight to Stuttgart for June 17th (because it's faster than a train and about the same price and it'll be my test run for the luggage). On June 18th we'll fly to Rhodos, at 5 a.m. from Frankfurt - so we'll be leaving at about 1 a.m. which essentially means we'll get no sleep unless on the Taxi ride or the plane. We'll see.
Amazon still hasn't sent the new credit card - they have about 16 days to go as the old one is only valid until the 31st. So far nobody used mine anywhere :)

Now on to the interview meme - snagged from both [livejournal.com profile] astrum_presul and [livejournal.com profile] agent_almeida at about the same time :)

1. Leave me a comment saying, 'interview me'.
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions. (You must do this, even if it's filtered for my eyes only!)
4. Include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

[livejournal.com profile] astrum_presul wanted to know about: these )

Your Word is "Think"

You see life as an amazing mix of possibilities, ideas, and fascinations.

And sometimes you feel like you don't have enough time to take it all in.

You love learning. Whether you're in school or not, you're probably immersed in several subjects right now.

When you're not learning, you're busy reflecting. You think a lot about the people you know and the things you've experienced.

Pretty accurate, I think.

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] astrum_presul AND [livejournal.com profile] agent_almeida so I better get to it :)

1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 6 random/quirky things about yourself
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them
5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

Six random things about me: Beware - I'm weird and long-winded !

1. I'm insanely curious...as in 'like a little child' curious. I randomly ask questions about where a name comes from, why certain food/(mixed) drinks or a frying pan work the way they do or behave the way they do. Everything really. Don't give me lemonade and sugar because I might test what kind of reactions you'll get by combining them (I already did that with my big brother, he's like me ;P). Google and Wikipedia are my best internet friends - besides my f-list maybe.

2. I'm a Math nerd. I love everything to do with the subject and if you give me a task I won't stop until I finish it.

3. I can't sit still and do nothing - a.k.a. Yoga or Tai Chi. Tried both and failed miserably. It's hard enough not to move or move slowly but to not THINK about anything is impossible. If you put me in a room with nothing to do I'll start counting anything in sight - tiles, flowers etc. - and match the number to the number of syllables of a song in my head. I know the number of tiles on our kitchen walls and that it's the same as the first line of Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis :D

4. I hate silence unless I read a book. During any other time I prefer to have some music as background noise; even for studying although it'll be some classical music because there's no lyrics I can sing along with so it's easier to tune out.

5. I'm a very tactile person. I like to hug and be hugged but it takes me a day or so to warm up to people. I don't just hug anybody.

6. I'm no girly girl at all. I don't like putting on make up (rarely do it - don't have much practise that way) and dressing up for something as simple as uni classes. Whenever I saw one of those dolled up people at uni I wondered how long it took her to get that made up. And I still don't understand why she'd need a scarf in winter while her jacket is so short I could see the girl's belly button. And don't get me started on those high heeled boots. I think she was just there to find a guy which isn't difficult when you have 300 computer science students and 10 of them are girls, me included. They noticed ME and I didn't have to dress up :)

I'll tag anyone who reads this and hasn't done it before :P

I'm a meme )

Blatantly copied from [livejournal.com profile] drgemini . As you'll see I don't watch many older movies (to me that's anything before the 90s) and I love comedies, romance, action, fantasy and some drama. Most of those are dramas so don't expect too much :)

Below is Entertainment Weekly's list of the top 100 movies of the last 25 years. Go through their list, bold the ones you have seen and underline the ones you own on video or DVD. enter the cinema )

01. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
02. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
03. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] dine7184 who gave me a D this time around, which is quite hard to do, so here we go and yes, I'm cheating and naming 7 but the 3 Roswell Songs count as one, right ?. Before I forget, I do have the songs, so if you want one just ask and I'll upload :)

Glen Phillips - Darkest Hour
Even though I love the Counting Crows from the original episode of Roswell this song (which is the DVD substitute) is sooooo great, that I fell in love with it too.

Mandalay - Deep Love
I'm listening to the Roswell soundtrack - so sue me :P

Zero 7 - Destiny
And another one. Title says it all !

Xavier Naidoo - Dieser Weg
Powerful lyrics in my opinion.

Matchbox 20 - Disease
Love Rob Thomas' voice to death :D

Lucie Silvas - Don't look back
She makes wonderful music. Great voice for ballads.

Pink - Dear Mr. President
Probably her most thought provoking song - at least among those I know.
tiah15: GoT Dani (Default)
can you name in 5 minutes? I could name a whole lot more (at least 30) - just not in English *g* and not if I need three tries to write Luxembourg or Colombia correctly or half of my other named countries.

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] jessm78 :

Here we go... )
tiah15: GoT Dani (Default)

You Are a Comma

You are open minded and extremely optimistic.

You enjoy almost all facets of life. You can find the good in almost anything.

You keep yourself busy with tons of friends, activities, and interests.

You find it hard to turn down an opportunity, even if you are pressed for time.

Your friends find you fascinating, charming, and easy to talk to.

(But with so many competing interests, you friends do feel like you hardly have time for them.)

You excel in: Inspiring people

You get along best with: The Question Mark

That's me !!! Though I don't know about the excel thing; the rest is pretty accurate :)
Is anyone here a question mark ???
tiah15: GoT Dani (AmandaMichael)
Blatantly stolen from [livejournal.com profile] jessm78, but I told her so it should be OK, right ? *blinks innocently*

IF YOU'RE ON MY FRIENDS LIST, I want to know 36 things about you. I don't care if we never talk, or if we already know everything about each other. Short and sweet is fine ... You're on my list, so I want to know you better!

Follow me and you're screened )

I saw this at [livejournal.com profile] majorsamfan's journal: hers was just as contradicting as mine. That's why some of it is bound to be correct, but sadly the majority is not. And it's much too long to read through for me :)

This is supposed to be helpful when talking to people. Instead of just telling your friends what you like, tell them what you hate as well. So name your likes and dislikes and maybe even why you chose them, so everyone can avoid bringing up certain topics around you altogether. Some are easy, some harder. Have fun :)

1. first thing that comes to mind when thinking about like / dislike
2. song / band / singer / music in general
3. movie / TV show
4. food
5. article of clothing
6. book
7. colour
8. work
9. place to go for the holidays
10. something ordinary / out of your everyday life / interesting about yourself

My answers are under the cut - beware of the novel length and potentially bad grammar - it's late and I don't want to reread it - again ! *g*

tiah15: GoT Dani (JasonBlackWhite)
... listen to this song if you find the time. I love it and it's been on endless repeat for hours today :)

Peter Cincotti - Goodbye Philadelphia
It's a youtube link.

Edit: I just saw this at [livejournal.com profile] jessm78' s journal:

As always half of that fits and the other half is saying the exact opposite: how can I be hard-hearted and caring at the same time ? *scratches head in wonder*
tiah15: GoT Dani (Default)
Rascall Flatts are singing in the background right now (on a Walmart page !). Time for "My wish" - one of my favourites of their last album. I want to see them live !!!!!

Getting on topic, I picked those two mems up from[personal profile] dine7184  , who snagged it somewhere else ...

7) Stanfour - Do it all
8) Nickelback - Deep
9) Third Eye Blind - Deep inside of you
10) Alterbridge - Down to my last

Dine, that was hard !!!

Comment and I'll give you a letter. You have to list 10 things you love that begin with that letter. After, post this in your journal, and give out some letters of your own.
Here I got an "I":

1) Indian food
2) Igel (hedgehogs)
3) individuals
4) ink
5) interesting books *g*
6) I-see-you.com (movie)

I'll retract my comment about the songs - they were easy. This was hard !!! (unless I start listing every Italian food I know)
