I haven´t been to the cinema in weeks. The Boat that Rocked (mediocre but Emma Thompson and Ken Branagh) and Gran Torino(Clint Eastwood hilariously wonderful and tragic) were the last films I saw. I need a good recommendation though I´ve heard great things about Let the Right one In.
This Obama paper is driving me nuts. I need people to look over it because me+scientific English=no good.
And now on top of it all, I have to buy a new desktop Mac. It sure needs to be a G5 for all the video editing stuff to work and now I have to google my way through the different kinds of graphic cards that support at least three monitors and openGL 2.0 Can I please have cheap computer?!
But fandom makes me happy at the moment though it´s distracting as hell.
I´ve turned off LoudTwitter on LJ because it made so apparent that I don´t update my journal daily and it really looks ugly. I´m @cadeira if you want to follow me and need to know what I have for dinner.
Does someone of you need Dreamwidth invitation codes? Some were sent to me today.

How much/what kind of help do you need with your Obama paper? I've been intrigued by the mentions you've been making, so I wanted to read it anyway... but I'm not sure how much I'd be in helping scientific wording. And depending on how long it is/when you need comments back by, I might not get it back to you in time... ^^;; Still, I wanted to at least offer! Tell me more about the paper/what you're looking for in help. :)

Wow, great. I´ll mail you some details. It´s just my first paper in English (and that´s not really meant to scare you away.)

I'm not a pro at all, but "scientific" English and I are somewhat acquainted and occasionally have a cup of tea together. So maybe I could be of some help, if you want.

I don't know if I have recommendation... "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" was interesting, but I don't know whether it's worth paying for. I'd definitely say "Angels & Demons", but noooo...

Can you tell me what it is that makes Dreamwidth so awesome that one needs to be invited? I'm just curious.

Ha! I didn´t know either and then I asked serotonin and she answered in great length:
See, now you want to join, right? Only... not really. Because LJ is so convenient. I have an account and it´s alright and cross-posting kind of works and it could be cool if more people were there but how could they when they´re all as lazy as I am when it comes to moving their stuff? I just don´t have enough motivatin and/or time at the moment.

That´s so cool with the paper... I´m not sure that I still have your mail address though, I´ve just now started using the Leopard Address Book. If it´s okay for you, I´ll mail you the paper when I´m finished. I need to use MLA standard for the whole thing...

Hm, not really. I don't think I'd benefit from many of these improvements (being traditionally female, not blind, and neither a fanfic writer nor a community owner) and I'm actually quite content with LJ. I don't do much over here, so there are not really any problems.

Oh but MLA is a wonderful style, at least in my opinion. In German Studies, I always mix it with the styles that are recommended to us.
My address is rai-chan [at]
Just mail away whenever you're ready :)

Hi, in case you're Cadeira from dear pretend girlfriend:
I hope you don't think I'm stalking you. Just thought I'd have a look at your journal, and yes you should see let the right one in. It is brilliant. I kept seeing the snow drifting through the air for days. Do you know this website? I tend to agree with them.
I still haven't seen Gran Torino, but I'm sure I'll like it.

Yep, that was me at DPG. I met the author here at LJ. It´s [ profile] triedunture who also writes great fanfiction, if that´s a thing for you. Do you intend to explore LJ further?

That´s a great site, thank you for pointing me there. My favorite film critic is Mark Kermode from BBC Radio 4 Five Live, the show is available on iTunes for free and it´s really entertaining and informative.
Can´t wait to see "Let the Right One In" then.

The Big Blue and Exquisite Anguish are probably my favorite House-fics ever. When she wrote "This, I gotta see." I could only wholeheartedly agree. So, yes, it is my thing.
I don´t know if I´ll actually use this account. I like to read, but I haven´t really felt a need to participate. But maybe that´s changing?
Right now I don´t have an internet connection, but as soon as its repaired I´ll listen to Mark Kemode. Thanks!

Fangirling over fangirls! Yay!
Duplex is also quite tasty. I just think she´s got the voices down pat and that´s why stories are so sexy and funny.
And of course, come over to the Dark Side!
