So... I haven't been on LJ/internet for quite some time now. It started with a sort of burn-out, thanks to uni and the exams I had. But then I just, well, didn't feel like doing anything, really (I wouldn't exactly call it a depression, more like being blue, or something like that). Reasons were:

1. Sickness. My poor sinuses :(
2. The news has been rather depressing lately. The whole economic crisis and everything. I can tell people are looking for a scapegoat to pick on, and my bet is on foreigners and immigrants :|
3. My uncle died. )
4. Uni managed to be even more stressful.
5. Geert Wilders. whining behind cut )

On the other hand, I'm feeling a lot better now, and not just because of less uni stress.
1. Yeah, baby, Eurovision Song Contest is back! The drama has already started, what with Georgia making a song with the title "We Don't Wanna Put In". Epic lulz. When I was a wee tod I watched Eurovision for the songs. Now that the songs suck I watch it for the lulz and drama, and this is a great start (Countries bitching through songs! Win!). I tried to imagine Putin's reaction and can't help but think of Tywin Lannister.
2. Books. I have Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny in front of me (only one page in, though). I believe the gist of the book is Hindu Gods IN SPACE. Which is rad, but I don't really know much about Hinduism and wikipedia isn't helping much. Like, the fine details, they're not really coming through. Maybe I should go back to square one and read stuff in Dutch.
Anyway, I've almost only seen positive reviews of this book (including a G.R.R. Martin one) so I'm hoping it's good.
3. Animanga is love.
4. Also, the new Tudors season trailer. It's like the makers thought, to hell with historical credibility, let's make a rocking trailer with Queen music! Hee! (Also, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, whyyyy are you so old, you are so incredibly Theon. I Want It All is such a Theon song. Even my backup plan of you being Littlefinger pales in comparison.)
5. ETA: Also an oscar wilde/bosie beatonna comic. LOL

So, I should get to checking out two weeks of friendspage. Oh boy.
ETA: Aaaaah, so fucking much, I'm never going to get this done. But at least I'm Egg? That's awesome guys, that's brilliant! :D (And it's hilarious how I got nominated for basically every Reach guy ever. LOL)
Son of ETA: I missed all these Greek Myth posts. This hurts me in my soul. I would've been the first to shout Achilles=Loras. I've done it before!

Basically I'm sharing the pain with you: James Joyce's dirty love letters.
Found this thanks to Kate Beaton's James Joyce comic, and damn. Just. I'd quote some stuff out of those letters but I'd probably get banned or something, they're that dirty.

Only 140 posts to go and I'm done, I think.
